True Africa: Photographs by David Sacks
True Africa showcases the best and worst of what orphans in Sub-Saharan Africa live with everyday. Is there poverty? Yes. But there is also beauty, dignity, a generosity of hospitality, and joy. Extreme poverty is an assault on human dignity, but at the end of the day it is no match for the human soul. Dignity can be obscured, beaten down, and dressed in tatters, but its essence remains. If you are perceptive, you will see it. Professional photographer David Sacks is a master at drawing out these qualities in his subjects. He shows that peopleaboth children and adultsaare not defined by the outer shell of their adversity. So put aside all your preconceived notions about the calamities Africa may or may not be facing and enjoy this photographic journey into the beautiful and joyful people who live there.

Vigfus the Viking
When young Vigfus the Viking and his parents, Thorveld and Helga, accidentally sail their longboat into New York Harbor during Operation Sail, a classic immigrant story begins, and hilarity ensues. Nothing seems quite right when this family of fierce, ill-mannered, and very poorly behaved Vikings finds New York City a little too tame for their liking, and not at all like their old Viking Lands! When Vigfus finds out that pillaging the school bus and capturing the cafeteria monitor is something the natives of this strange island don't do, he soon discovers that he must learn a new culture in order to gain something he's never seen before and the very thing he wants most: a friend.

Alphabets: A Miscellany of Letters
From a comprehensive introduction on the origins of the written word, through to theories such as The Alphabet Effect, exploring the coding/decoding and abstraction of form to the more appetising concept of 'Alphabet Soup', Alphabets features illustrations, found objects, graphic design, art, conceptual typography, graffiti, and much more. Through the exploration of this grouping of 26 symbols, it becomes clear that each letter has its own persona and history, and the alphabets presented in this book show how artists, typographers, illustrators and educators have responded uniquely to each individual letter. By removing the letters from the context of words and spelling, each begins to stand alone as a character in its own right. Featuring letters of all shapes and sizes, and alphabets ranging from Victorian classroom aides and Dr Seuss' ABC through to Peter Blake, Michael Craig-Martin, Tauba Auerbach, and the Tangled Alphabets of Leon Ferrari and Mira Schendelto to ABC Blocks, phonetics, Braille, and Muji alphabet ice cube moulds, Alphabets: A Miscellany of Letters offers a cornucopia of imagery for artists, collectors and enthusiasts alike.
