Designer Nathan Turner’s style is synonymous with the easy glam of California living. His first book introduced readers to his casual American style and chic design sense. Now, he has written a love letter to his home state in I Love California.
This book is a journey up and down Highway 1 that takes readers from the redwoods of northern San Francisco, to the mountains of the Sierra Nevada, to the beaches of Southern California. Simple recipes and tips for entertaining are featured alongside never-before-seen interiors. Lavish photographs capture the homes, people, and food of each unique location in glorious, sun-drenched detail. This book even includes Turner’s signature recipes for California comfort food, like his family’s Cioppino, Marinated Tri-tip Steak, Mexican Chocolate Cake, and more.
More than just a design book, I Love California will appeal to all readers—whether they’re entertaining friends and dining with family, or just wishing to visit the sun-dappled coast. As Nathan says, “The recipes and decor here are inspired by my home state, but really it’s a state of mind.” Now, you can create this dreamy California lifestyle anywhere.

Author and explorer James Michael Dorsey has spent two decades visiting the world’s most remote tribal cultures. In BABOONS FOR LUNCH and Other Sordid Adventures, he tells his remarkable travel stories in rollicking accounts that keep readers off balance and eager for more.
Many stories are funny, others are poignant, and quite a few are heart stopping, while others are unique insights into remote ways of life most of the world does not know exists.
In this book the reader will climb a remote volcano in Ethiopia, cross the Sahara Desert with nomads, undergo a tribal exorcism, and visit shamans, healers, witch doctors, and holy men.
This is not your average travel book, but an entree to some of the world’s remote corners and people.
Tiny New York: The Smallest Things in the Biggest City [EPUB]

Because in a giant city, sometimes the smallest things get overlooked.
Meet the tiniest standouts in the Big Apple, from a baby dinosaur at the Museum of Natural History to a dinky basketball court in the Village that has produced some of sport’s biggest legends.
Other tiny stars include the NYPD’s smallest bomb-sniffing police dog (45 pounds), the shortest first name (just one letter!), and an itsy-bitsy topless bar (1200 square feet).
Tiny New York peeks into the city’s nooks and crannies to find the little things that tell the real New York story. Because in New York, Tiny isn’t cute. It’s tough. Tiny doesn’t wait for handouts. It hustles. Tiny isn’t insignificant. It’s precise. Tiny isn’t a jack-of-all-trades. It’s the master of one.
There are plenty of books about New York City. But there has never been a book about the smallest things in the biggest city.
