In the Bookstore is a bibliophile's dream puzzle: a multi-room bookstore filled with readers, each room an ode to a specific literary genre: fiction, poetry, design, mystery, graphic novels and more.

Browsing in a bookstore is one of life's great pleasures. A peek inside a single busy bookstore, this puzzle contains many layers: each room is devoted to a genre and teeming with activities: people solving mysteries in the crime section; couples falling in love in the poetry section, and little ones climbing the bookshelves in the children's section. Filled with special details and inside jokes all bibliophiles will love. This puzzle is a perfect gift for readers, writers, poets and anyone who has ever felt the thrill of stepping inside a bookstore.

On Cats

- by Margaret Atwood

Hardcover $25.95 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $23.36

For centuries, cats have been worshipped, adored and mistrusted in equal measure. This beautiful gift book contains a selection of essays, stories, and poems on cats by writers from across the ages.

In these pages, writers reflect on the curious feline qualities that inspire such devotion in their owners, even when it seems one-sided. Cats' affections are hard-won and often fickle. Freud considered his cat an embodiment of true egoism; Hilaire Belloc found peace in his feline companion's complacency; and Hemingway--a famous cat-lover--wrote of drinking with his eleven cats and the pleasant distraction they gave him.

Edward Gorey can't turn down a stray despite the trouble they cause him, and admits he has no idea what they're thinking about; Muriel Spark gives practical advice on how to teach a cat to play ping-pong; Nikola Tesla, who helped design the modern electricity supply system, describes a seminal experience with a cat that first sparked his fascination with electricity; and Caitlin Moran considers the unexpected feelings of loss after the death of her family cat.

These writers, and many others (including Mary Gaitskill, Alice Walker, Ursula K. Le Guin, John Keats, James Bowen, Lynne Truss, and more), paint a joyful portrait of cats and their mysterious and loveable ways. As Hemingway wrote, "one cat leads to another." The book features six black-and-white cat portraits by photographer Elliot Ross.

Around the World in 80 Books

- by David Damrosch

Hardcover $40.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $36.00

A transporting and illuminating voyage around the globe, through classic and modern literary works that are in conversation with one another and with the world around them

*Featured in the Chicago Tribune's Great 2021 Fall Book Preview*

Inspired by Jules Verne's hero Phileas Fogg, David Damrosch, chair of Harvard University's department of comparative literature and founder of Harvard's Institute for World Literature, set out to counter a pandemic's restrictions on travel by exploring eighty exceptional books from around the globe. Following a literary itinerary from London to Venice, Tehran and points beyond, and via authors from Woolf and Dante to Nobel Prize-winners Orhan Pamuk, Wole Soyinka, Mo Yan, and Olga Tokarczuk, he explores how these works have shaped our idea of the world, and the ways in which the world bleeds into literature.
 
To chart the expansive landscape of world literature today, Damrosch explores how writers live in two very different worlds: the world of their personal experience and the world of books that have enabled great writers to give shape and meaning to their lives. In his literary cartography, Damrosch includes compelling contemporary works as well as perennial classics, hard-bitten crime fiction as well as haunting works of fantasy, and the formative tales that introduce us as children to the world we're entering. Taken together, these eighty titles offer us fresh perspective on enduring problems, from the social consequences of epidemics to the rising inequality that Thomas More designed Utopia to combat, as well as the patriarchal structures within and against which many of these books' heroines have to struggle--from the work of Murasaki Shikibu a millennium ago to Margaret Atwood today.
 
Around the World in 80 Books is a global invitation to look beyond ourselves and our surroundings, and to see our world and its literature in new ways.

Maker Camp

- by Dela Holton-fessler

Hardcover $25.95 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $23.36

Classic and innovative hands-on projects for kids ages 3 and up designed to teach both heritage skills and how to think creatively.

Handcraft is part of human nature: we build, we create, we innovate. The 20+ projects in this book from an experienced art educator weave a story of human innovation and creativity, from the very beginnings of building shelters in the woods to tinkering with recycled materials. Heritage skills teach children how to be independent and capable makers; fiber and wood projects offer rewarding crafts that also teach planning, preparation, and safe risk taking; and tinkering activities connect the low-tech process of making and doing with innovation. From soap carving and knot tying to building toy cars and junk robots, this book brings the fun of making things with your hands to young kids and links skills of the past with the present.

The book also explores how to set up a maker space and teaches foundational workshop practices that can easily be applied to the home studio. Each project offers extensions for different ages and abilities and provides guiding questions to enrich the experience for both the maker (teacher/parent) and the apprentice (child) to encourage and celebrate creative, practical play.
