Created in partnership with Flow, the groundbreaking international magazine that celebrates creativity, beautiful illustration, a love of paper, and life’s little pleasures, A Book That Takes Its Time mixes articles, inspiring quotes, and what the editors call “goodies”—bound-in cards, mini-journals, stickers, posters, blank papers for collaging, and more—giving it a distinctly handcrafted, collectible feeling. Read about the benefits of not multitasking, then turn to “The Joy of One Thing at a Time Notebook” tucked into the pages. After a short piece on the power of slowing down, fill in the designed notecards for a Beautiful Moments jar. Make a personal timeline. Learn the art of hand-lettering. Dig into your Beginner’s Mind. Embrace the art of quitting. Take the writing cure. And always smile. Move slowly and with intention through A Book That Takes Its Time, and discover that sweet place where life can be both thoughtful and playful.

Draw the Flow Way “Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.” –Elizabeth Gilbert “I cannot rest, I must draw, however poor the result, and when I have a bad time come over me it is a stronger desire than ever.” –Beatrix Potter “Drawing, painting, creating…it’s like a muscle. You have to work on it every day.” –Sarah Walsh “Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use—do the work you want to see done.” –Austin Kleon “Drawing is the discipline by which I constantly rediscover the world. I have learned that what I have not drawn, I have never really seen, and that when I start drawing an ordinary thing, I realize how extraordinary it is, sheer miracle.” –Frederick Frank “Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.” –Salvador Dalí “Creativity is a way of living life, no matter what our vocation or how we earn our living.” –Madeline L’Engle “I believe the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity, in any artistic work, is daring to dare.” –Maya Angelou “I sometimes think that there is nothing so delightful as drawing.” –Vincent van Gogh In this innovative approach to drawing instruction, the illustrators from Flow magazine open up their tool kits, sharing secrets and techniques to teach the creatively curious how to draw. The lessons, 50 in all, curated from the best of Flow's two special drawing issues, show how to render the kinds of things we see every day: a bouquet of flowers, a beloved teacup, colorful mittens, the kitchen table, a bike, jam jars, a cat, an apple tree. Along the way we learn about color, materials, perspective, tools, and negative space. With its bound-in paper goodies, this book is also a canvas for artistic exploration—reminding us of the mindful pleasure of doing creative work.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed with a particular emotion, a feeling so strong that you wanted to scream aloud but didn’t for fear of the world’s response? Have you ever had a song on your heart, a melody that repeated steadily in the background of your life? Have you ever seen an image so vivid that it almost seemed unreal, a scene of serenity that was always before you even when you closed your eyes to dream? In moments like these, do you feel the urge to create something? What’s holding you back from expressing the very thing that’s impressed on your heart? Creativity takes courage. One must throw caution to the wind in order to unveil these impressions to the world. You want people to experience it through your eyes, but fear of rejection can be overpowering. What if they can’t see it the way you do? Holding your gift inside only makes the yearning to release it greater. Even still, it deprives the world of the beauty that you hold within. Let it out! Write something heart-wrenching. Sing a song so convincing that it brings its audience to their knees in captivation. Paint an image so breathtaking that on-lookers can only sigh. Let courage propel you forward. This book took that very same courage to write—courage to shovel through the complexity of emotions and courage to come to terms with those emotions in print. May it inspire the courage you need to create something beautiful. May you then share it with the world.

Celebrate the joys of living with less. Less stuff. Less stress. Less overthinking. Less judgment. Less excess. Combining the hands-on activity and beautiful production value that made A Book That Takes Its Time a bestseller, with 204,000 copies in print, The Big Book of Less presents a message that will be equally embraced: how paring down allows us to live not just lighter, but better. And it’s a book that approaches “less” in a fresh, new way, addressing mental and spiritual decluttering as well, with tips on “cleaning out” the extra stuff in our heads to create more room for what we actually enjoy. Read about how doing less—less work, less internet browsing—allows us to reclaim time for relaxation and meditation. How talking less leaves more time for listening. Sprinkled throughout are Flow’s signature paper goodies that mix the fun of learning with the fun of putting ideas into action: a just-one-thought-a-day diary helps nurture a daily habit of worrying less; tear-out Expressionist art posters inspire less scheduling; a tiny, foldable paper house underscores the appeal of living minimally; and more. A perfect gift for anyone who would breathe easier from scaling back and relish the freedom of letting go.

Grayling, Robert McCrum, Prue Leith, Sebastian Faulks and Ann Widdecombe, to name just a few, Simple Pleasures is perfect reading for anyone who appreciates - or aspires to - the finer, simpler things in life.

The debut novel from the PEN/Faulkner Award Winning Author of The Buddha in the Attic On a sunny day in Berkeley, California, in 1942, a woman sees a sign in a post office window, returns to her home, and matter-of-factly begins to pack her family's possessions. Like thousands of other Japanese Americans they have been reclassified, virtually overnight, as enemy aliens and are about to be uprooted from their home and sent to a dusty internment camp in the Utah desert. In this lean and devastatingly evocative first novel, Julie Otsuka tells their story from five flawlessly realized points of view and conveys the exact emotional texture of their experience: the thin-walled barracks and barbed-wire fences, the omnipresent fear and loneliness, the unheralded feats of heroism. When the Emperor Was Divine is a work of enormous power that makes a shameful episode of our history as immediate as today's headlines.

From the bestselling author of Shopgirl comes the tender story of a troubled man who finds love, and life, in the most unexpected place. Daniel resides in his Santa Monica apartment, living much of his life as a bystander: He watches from his window as the world goes by, and his only relationships seem to be with people who barely know he exists. He passes the time idly filling out contest applications, counting ceiling tiles, and estimating the wattage of light bulbs. It is through Daniel's growing attachment to Clarissa, and to Teddy, that he finally gains the courage to begin to engage the world outside, and in doing so, he discovers love, and life, in the most surprising places. Filled with his trademark humor, tenderness, and out and out hilarious wordplay, The Pleasure of My Company is a tour de force sure to delight all of Steve Martin's fans.

‘Perched on the back of a sunlit chair was something about 9 inches tall and shaped rather like a plump toy penguin with a nose-job. It appeared to be wearing a one-piece knitted jumpsuit of pale grey fluff with brown stitching, complete with an attached balaclava helmet. From the face-hole of the fuzzy balaclava, two big, shiny black eyes gazed up at me trustfully. Kweep, it said quietly.’ When author Martin Windrow met the tawny owlet that he christened Mumble, it was love at first sight. Raising her from a fledgling, through adolescence and into her prime years, Windrow recorded every detail of their time living together (secretly) in a south London tower block, and later in a Sussex village. This is the touching, intriguing and eccentric story of their 15-year relationship, complete with photographs and illustrations of the beautiful Mumble. Along the way, we are given fascinating insight into the ornithology of owls – from their evolution and biology to their breeding habits and hunting tactics. The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar is a witty, quirky and utterly charming account of the companionship between one man and his owl.
