Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller! BOY, Roald Dahl's bestselling autobiography, is full of hilarious anecdotes about his childhood and school days, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

There are stories of holidays in fishing boats, African adventures and the days of tasting chocolate for Cadbury's. You'll hear tales of horrible school bullies and the motor-car accident when Roald's nose was nearly sliced clean off . . . Roald Dahl vividly shares his memories; some are funny. Some are painful. Some are unpleasant. All are true.

Lillian Too's 168 Ways to Declutter Your Home: And Re-Energize Your Life
Clear the clutter and revitalize your living space. Energy is a precious commodity - the source of vitality, good relationships and peace of mind. The 168 techniques in this practical guide show how physical clutter is more than just junk - the debris in our home actually creates mental and spiritual blocks to success. When this is cleared, we get the balance back in life, plus a whole range of new opportunities. The book begins with energy basics and practical de-junking suggestions, such as how to clear your desk to create success or rearrange your living room for harmonious relationships, then presents step-by-step cleansing and revitalization rituals to recharge your home's atmosphere. The rituals show how to use crystals, salt, rice grains, herbs, incense, flower petals, fragrant water and amazing visualization techniques to enhance and protect your environment. Chapters on using mystic symbols, such as geometric yantra designs, and magnifying spiritual energy complete the clutter journey. A section on personalized practices gives inspiring, fast solutions for those bad days: cupboard-clearing when you feel unattractive, or rearranging your desk when you feel defeated. All rituals and techniques have been personally tried and tested by Lillian Too, and have brought her great personal success.

Phantom Limb

Published on the occasion of the first solo museum exhibition in the Middle East by acclaimed sculptor Diana Al-Hadid, at the Art Gallery of NYU Abu Dhabi. 

This monograph surveys the oeuvre of Syrian-American artist Diana Al-Hadid at a critical juncture in her fast-growing career. In the 10 years since her MFA, this artist has had 22 solo exhibitions at museums and galleries around the world. Already represented by a major New York gallery (Marianne Boesky), Al-Hadid has gone on to mount important solo shows in museums in Europe, and participate in major group exhibitions and biennials internationally. This catalogue marks the occasion of her first solo show in the Middle East, at the Art Gallery of NYU Abu Dhabi – a new exhibition venue dedicated to museum-quality exhibitions and scholarly, timely publications.

Three essays frame Al-Hadid’s work in contrasting perspectives. A global authority on the Northern Renaissance, Reindert Falkenburg, reflects on Al-Hadid’s piece Phantom Limb – itself rich with Renaissance allusions – through the lens of his own training as an art historian. The Guggenheim curator and scholar of Middle Eastern contemporary art Sara Raza writes about Al-Hadid’s work as it intersects with architectural history and contemporary art practices. Finally, Alistair Rider, a historian of modern sculpture, expands the discussion to review her larger practice, in particular as she connects the materiality of her work to the ephemerality of memory and history.

Anjalendran: Architect Of Sri Lanka
This beautifully illustrated book showcases the works of one of Sri Landa's most influential architects-Anjaledran, an ethnic Tamil and visionary artist. During the past 25 years of civil war in Sri Lanka, Anjalendran has stayed on, creating architecture that has attracted interest across the entire Indian subcontinent. In Anjalendran, David Robson explores this unique man and his uncommon vision. Anjalendran's buildings have a simple directness, and although totally modern in spirit, they acknowledge the rich design traditions of Sri Lanka. Whether working with ample budgets or at rock bottom cost (like his SOS Children's Village orphanages), his work focuses not only on creative buildings, but-a la Frank Lloyd Wright-also their landscaping, furniture and decoration. Just as interesting as the architecture is the process by which Anjalendran works-:from home, never employing more than four student assistants, with no office, no secretary, no car and no cell phone. He operates without a bank account and has never signed a contract with either a client or a builder. With stunning color photographs, plan details and behind-the-scenes insights, Anjalendran sheds light on the works of this exceptional man.

Human Dimension And Interior Space
The study of human body measurements on a comparative basis is known as anthropometrics. Its applicability to the design process is seen in the physical fit, or interface, between the human body and the various components of interior space. Human Dimension and Interior Space is the first major anthropometrically based reference book of design standards for use by all those involved with the physical planning and detailing of interiors, including interior designers, architects, furniture designers, builders, industrial designers, and students of design. The use of anthropometric data, although no substitute for good design or sound professional judgment should be viewed as one of the many tools required in the design process. This comprehensive overview of anthropometrics consists of three parts. The first part deals with the theory and application of anthropometrics and includes a special section dealing with physically disabled and elderly people. It provides the designer with the fundamentals of anthropometrics and a basic understanding of how interior design standards are established. The second part contains easy-to-read, illustrated anthropometric tables, which provide the most current data available on human body size, organized by age and percentile groupings. Also included is data relative to the range of joint motion and body sizes of children. The third part contains hundreds of dimensioned drawings, illustrating in plan and section the proper anthropometrically based relationship between user and space. The types of spaces range from residential and commercial to recreational and institutional, and all dimensions include metric conversions. In the Epilogue, the authors challenge the interior design profession, the building industry, and the furniture manufacturer to seriously explore the problem of adjustability in design. They expose the fallacy of designing to accommodate the so-called average man, who, in fact, does not exist. Using government data, including studies prepared by Dr. Howard Stoudt, Dr. Albert Damon, and Dr. Ross McFarland, formerly of the Harvard School of Public Health, and Jean Roberts of the U.S. Public Health Service, Panero and Zelnik have devised a system of interior design reference standards, easily understood through a series of charts and situation drawings. With Human Dimension and Interior Space, these standards are now accessible to all designers of interior environments.

Coastal Blues is a magnificent celebration of shoreside homes around the globe, offering decorative inspiration for all of us who love the ocean or dream of living by the sea. Covering homes from as far apart as the Bahamas and Denmark, authors Sally Hayden and Alice Whately begin by looking at the essential components of the coastal look - colour and texture, materials, furniture, fabrics, accessories and display. The second part of the book, The Spaces, takes a tour through the home room by room, from Living Spaces, Cooking and Eating Spaces to Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Outdoor Spaces, capturing the informal, easy-going interior style associated with living at the water's edge. But Coastal Blues is not only for those who live by the ocean. Whatever and wherever your home, from a high-rise apartment to a newly built home, you can create a simple, informal beachy feel. From tranquil living areas to balmy bedrooms and shipshape kitchens, Coastal Blues covers all the aspects of decorative seaside style.

Wary Meyers' Tossed & Found
What some view as trash, Linda and John Meyers see as raw material. The wife-and-husband team-subscribers to the reduce, reuse, recycle ethos-have perfected a design strategy that will save you money, help the planet, and provide hours of DIY fun. The strategy? First, visit a yard sale, construction-site dumpster, or even your own attic. Select something that somebody (even you) thought had outlived its usefulness. Then, transform that castoff into a piece that's interesting and usable.In this witty book, they apply their ingenious approach to seating (a chair made from pool noodles), lighting (a lamp from discarded pastry bags), storage (an umbrella stand from industrial steel pipe), tables (a wall-mounted table from a rusty basketball hoop), and all manner of decorative objects (Astroturf pillows, a pickle-jar terrarium). These super-clever authors show you that with a little ingenuity and elbow grease, everything old becomes new again.
