African-American fashion designer Willi Smith, pioneer of streetwear and visionary collaborator, finally gets his due in an exuberant celebration of his life and work.
Before Off-White, before Hood By Air, before Supreme, there was WilliWear. Willi Smith created inclusive and liberating fashion: "I don't design clothes for the queen, but the people who wave at her as she goes by," he said. A rising star from the time he left Parsons, Smith went on to found WilliWear with Laurie Mallet in 1976 and became one of the most successful designers of his era by his untimely death in 1987. Smith broke boundaries with his streetwear, or "street couture," and trailblazed the collaborations between artists, performers, and designers commonplace today in projects with SITE Architects, Nam June Paik, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Spike Lee, Dan Friedman, Bill T. Jones, and Arnie Zane. Essays by leading figures from the worlds of fashion, art, architecture, and cultural studies paired with never before-seen images and ephemera make Willi Smith essential reading for the history of streetwear culture and the evolution of fashion from the 1970s to today.

A guide to slowing down, enjoying more and being happy
Tyler Brûlé, Andrew Tuck, Joe Pickard, Josh Fehnert
Monocle has always been a champion of taking it slow. It has encouraged readers to dive into a lake and go for a run. To sleep well. To eat food whose makers are proud of its provenance. In a shouty, jabbing-finger moment in history, it has done its bit to argue for a new modern etiquette to be generous with our time, hospitality and forgiveness. Now its editors and correspondents have brought all of this together in The Monocle Manifesto for a Gentler Life, a book that urges us all to slow down, reconnect, make good things and see nice places. And it also knows when to wear a cheeky smile. Chapters include:
• An illustrated guide to being nice, respecting your neighbour and controlling your social media rants.
• Profiles of the happiest nations – and the least lonely too.
• How to build a house that’s good for you and your family.
• Essays from leading thinkers and great writers on what we can gain if we shift gear.
• The businesses charting a better course – from management to pride in production.
• Food – a celebration of the locally made, the chefs that bring people together and a recipe or two.
• The objects to own that will give pleasure for years.
• The people who changed direction, slowed down and made it work.
• The compact cities where you can run a company, be inspired, have a good social life – and be hiking in a forest at 5pm.

Do less instead of more. With this project planner it has never been so easy to focus on your goals.
How do you decide what you will do today – and what you won’t do? There simply isn’t time to realise every brilliant idea and to execute every little task. And as we cannot create extra time, we need to make choices.
The ToDon’tList helps you make those choices, whether they concern your daily tasks, your new projects or even your professional or creative life. It gives you the gift of simplicity: Just make a list for your life/work/project/year/month/day and throw out everything after the 3rd item. It will give you time and focus.
The author used the To Don’t List concept a lot in his studio while brainstorming, developing new ideas or working on projects: “That’s a good idea, but let’s put it on the ToDon’tList for now”. In that way, he kept his focus on his goals. The ToDon’tList concept became a method, and the method became the inspiration for writing Don’t Read This
“A darkly funny untangling of national and sexual identity.” —The Guardian* “Transgressive...Incendiary.” —The New Yorker * “A furious comic monologue...with a disregard for propriety worthy of Alexander Portnoy.” —The New York Times Book Review
For readers of Ottessa Moshfegh and Han Kang, a whip-smart debut novel in which a woman on the verge of major change addresses her doctor in a stream of consciousness narrative.
In a well-appointed examination in London, a young woman unburdens herself to a certain Dr. Seligman. Though she can barely see above his head, she holds forth about her life and desires, her struggles with her sexuality and identity. Born and raised in Germany, she has been living in London for several years, determined to break free from her family origins and her haunted homeland. But the recent death of her grandfather, and an unexpected inheritance, make it clear that you cannot easily outrun your own shame, whether it be physical, familial, historical, national, or all of the above.
Or can you? With Dr. Seligman’s help, our narrator will find out.
In a monologue that is both deliciously dark and subversively funny, she takes us on a wide-ranging journey from Hitler-centered sexual fantasies and overbearing mothers to the medicinal properties of squirrel tails and the notion that anatomical changes can serve as historical reparation. The Appointment is an audacious debut novel by an explosive new international literary voice, challenging all of our notions of what is fluid and what is fixed, and the myriad ways we seek to make peace with others and ourselves in the 21st century.

An updated edition of Shore's groundbreaking book, now with previously unpublished photographs and a new introduction
Stephen Shore's images from his travels across America in 1972-73 are considered the benchmark for documenting the extraordinary in the ordinary and continue to influence photographers today.

Now, in the age of Instagram and nearly 50 years after Shore embarked on his cross-country journey, this revised and expanded edition will bring this seminal work back into focus.

Be the dictator you've always dreamed of being, with this handy guide to life inspired by everyone's favourite autocrat.
What can the rise and reign of this century's most feared politician teach us about life, work and love? Rob Sears shows how the machinations that enabled Putin to dominate the Kremlin and undermine the United States of America could also help you take control of your mundane life. How would you like to ruin your enemies by sharing compromising material about that time they didn't wash their hands? Or annex territory by claiming the stationery cupboard at work as your personal empire? Fancy hacking democracy at the parent-teacher association to ensure you're a shoo-in for social secretary? Or serving up a cold dish called revenge in a high street restaurant?
Filled with stories from Putin's extraordinary time in power, and ideas and illustrations to help you emulate him on a small scale, Vladimir Putin: Life Coach is the ultimate guide to releasing the pseudo-elected, judo black-belt, 5D chess-playing autocrat inside each and every one of us.
Rob Sears is a creative director at McCann Erickson advertising agency, has written comedy and fiction for McSweeney's and (with his brother) wrote a sitcom for Audible starring Kevin Eldon, Felicity Montagu and Mitch Benn. He is the author of the hit humour title The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump. He lives in Finsbury Park with his wife.
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2019 WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR. FROM THE JUDGES: ‘Rick Reilly lets Donald’s Trump relationship with his favourite sport speak for itself. Commander in Cheat is full of astonishing ‘you could not make it up’ detail delivered in full knowledge that nothing revealed would embarrass the President one jot. You will be howling with laughter and gasping in disbelief in equal measure so be careful when reading this fascinating book in public.’
SHORTLISTED FOR THE GENERAL OUTSTANDING SPORTS WRITING AWARD AT THE 2020 TELEGRAPH SPORTS BOOK AWARDS. THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. ‘An eye-watering account of the president’s abuse of the rules of golf’ The Sunday Times ‘Reilly pokes more holes in Trump’s claims than there are sand traps on all his courses combined. It is by turns amusing and alarming’ The New Yorker ‘This book is dedicated to the truth. It’s still a thing.’
Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump is a fascinating on-the-ground and behind-the-scenes survey of Donald Trump’s ethics deficit on and off the golf course.Renowned sports writer Rick Reilly transports readers onto the greens with President Trump, revealing the absurd ways in which he lies about his feats, and what they can tell us about the way he leads off the course in the most important job in the world.
‘Golf is like bicycle shorts. It reveals a lot about a man.’
Reilly has been with Trump on the fairways, the greens and in the rough, he has seen how the President plays – and it’s not pretty. Based on his personal experiences, and interviews with dozens of golf pros, amateurs, developers, partners, opponents, and even caddies who have first-hand involvement with Trump out on the course, Reilly takes a deep and often hilarious look at how Trump shamelessly cheats at golf, lies about it, sues over it, bullies with it, and profits from it.
‘Somebody should point out that the way Trump does golf is sort of the way he does a presidency, which is to operate as though the rules are for other people.’
From Trump’s ridiculous claim to have won eighteen club championships, to his devious cheating tricks, to his tainted reputation as a golf course tycoon, Commander in Cheat tells you everything you need to know about the man.
‘You could write a book about what Trump’s golf reveals about him. Here it is.’

‘Mum. Guess what?’ ‘What Jessie?’ ‘We’ve written a cookbook’. ‘I know darling! Do you think anyone will want to buy it?’ ‘Well, it’s the recipes we’ve made our guests – the really good ones. Like the Sausage and Bean Casserole we made Ed Sheeran, the Drunken Crouton and Kale Salad we made Yotam Ottolenghi and the two Blackberry and Custard Tarts we served Nigella.' 'You ate a whole one before she arrived, darling.' 'It’s a bloody good recipe mum.'
Cooking through Table Manners is like having Jessie and Lennie at the table with you: brash, funny and full of opinions.
In true Ware style, their cookbook is divided into Effortless, A Bit More Effort, Summertime, Desserts and Baking (thanks to Jessie’s brother Alex), Chrismukkah (Christmas, Hanukkah and celebrations) and, of course, Jewish-ish Food.
These delicious, easy dishes are designed for real people with busy and sometimes chaotic lives with the ultimate goal of everyone eating together so unfiltered chat can flourish.
The provinces of China are united by their love of a good meal. Each has their own specialties and methods of preparation - all of which are, of course, purported to be 'the best'. Rather than attempting to cover the entirety of Chinese cuisine, this charming little book instead focuses on recipes born from melding the author's favourite family menus with tips on traditional preparation and table etiquette as dictated by Confucius 2500 years ago. The result is an informative and delicious peek into the Chinese food culture of the early twentieth century. Requiring only minimal materials and expertise, the recipes are accessible and flavourful, while the insights into traditional Chinese eating customs will be of use for travellers hoping to dine authentically while abroad.
Chow! guides the reader through the basics - how to wash rice, serve tea and make noodles from scratch - before introducing them to a variety of dishes based around meat, seafood and vegetables. Whether you seek familiar tastes or adventurous dishes, Chow! has it all: from stuffed mushrooms and fried rice to minced pigeon, crab fat with green vegetables and duck tongue soup.

Audre Lorde (1934-92) described herself as ‘Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet’. Her extraordinary belief in the power of language – of speaking – to articulate selfhood, confront injustice and bring about change in the world remains as transformative today as it was then, and no less urgent.
Your Silence Will Not Protect You brings Lorde's poetry and prose together for the first time.

How will we travel in the future? Essays on the transport to come, from sidewalk scooters to levitating trains
With the promise of delivery drones, personal helicopters, and groceries delivered right to your refrigerator, one might think we are living in the best of transportation times. Most city commuters would be quick to tell you otherwise.
Of all the technological interventions continuously inserted into our daily travels, which ones will last? Is ride-sharing here to stay? In ten years will we all be taking autonomous vehicles to work? Will traffic as we know it cease to exist? While this volume makes no promises or predictions, it does take a step back from the hype of the new to explore what might seem like yesterday's solutions: buses, bikes and even trains. Perhaps remedies to our transportation woes are not all in the future but are hiding in plain and present sight.
The Future of Transportation is the third volume in the SOM Thinkers series, conceived by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. SOM Thinkers originated from a desire to start a public conversation about the built environment. Rather than frame the subject in the expected "professional" language, the series poses today's most pressing questions about design and architecture in a bold and accessible way.
This volume features work by Henry Grabar, Oliver Franklin-Wallis, Laura Bliss, Darran Anderson, Nick Van Mead, Atossa Araxia Abrahamian, Alison Griswold and Christopher Schaberg, with artwork by Olalekan Jeyifous.
