Revealing a world beyond the stereotype, My Cool Campervan celebrates the new wave of interest in modern-retro campervans. When people think of campervans, they almost always recall the iconic VW T2, that familiar, happy-faced van that embodies the virtues of enjoying the journey and taking your time. However, there is a world of forgotten campervans out there and an idiosyncratic world of individual conversions to campers. Join Jane Field-Lewis and Chris Haddon as they set off on a 3,500-mile trip to locate campervans and their proud owners, who share their memories of family holidays and long road trips. Delve into the world of road-tripping as they reveal a succession of delightful campervans, memorable locations, and classic models, at times beautifully restored, and at others well-loved and well-used. My Cool Campervan reveals a world beyond the stereotype and is a celebration of campervans' evolving styles and designs.

Treehouses have always been a symbol of imagination and adventure, but despite the traditional stereotype, treehouses are not just for children and children's stories. Well built and in the right spot, they can add real value to your home and lifestyle. Beloved for centuries as ramshackle palaces of backyard escape and fun, the modern-day treehouse has evolved from more traditional structures, in the process morphing and expanding its agenda to capture the heart and soul of a new breed of acolytes. Versatile and endlessly adapting, it gives us a unique opportunity for creative expression and an individualistic challenge. It enables us to build on unbuildable plots, create unusual business models and even use it as a form for art installations. Using high-end interiors, landscape and lifestyle photography and styling in the specially commissioned images (photographed in all seasons and weather conditions), the book includes 35 treehouses with different budgets and styles, from the rustic that seem to disappear into the foliage to the futuristic made out of contemporary materials. Embracing a world-wide approach, the seeds of inspiration in this book come from far and wide: from contemporary minimalist treehouses, recycled urban structures in backyards, bespoke Welsh hideaways and glass walls in the African wilderness to cabins perched on trees in the scented lavender fields of southern Italy. Creativity and vision definitely anchor each and every one of them firmly to the ground. The accompanying narrative for each of these projects will give information about the location, the owners and their inspiration as well as style notes.

This is the true story of Franz Wisner, a man who thought he had it all- a high profile career and the fiancee of his dreams- when suddenly, his life turned upside down. Just days before they were to be married, his fiancee called off the wedding. Luckily, his large support network of family and friends wouldn't let him succumb to his misery. They decided Franz should have a wedding and a honeymoon anyway- there just wouldn't be a bride at the ceremony, and Franz' travel companion would be his brother, Kurt. During the "honeymoon," Franz reconnected with his brother and began to look at his life with newfound perspective. The brothers decided to leave their old lives behind them. They quit their jobs, sold all their possessions, and traveled around the world, visiting fifty-three countries for the next two years. In "Honeymoon With My Brother," Franz recounts this remarkable journey, during which he turned his heartbreak into an opportunity to learn about himself, the world, and the brother he hardly knew.

Nick was just like any other boy growing up in the early 70s: he liked playing out on bikes and being a little sod. He liked Cowboys & Indians and Sooty & Sweep. He had loads of ace brothers and sisters and loved his mum, even though she wasn't his real mum. His dad was great too. He was something called an 'activist' and he was always away at 'meetings' and 'strikes' which were all really boring. Then one day his dad was taken away and he didn't come back. Nick's dad was Des Warren, a passionate union man who, along with Ricky Tomlinson, became one of the legendary Shrewsbury Two, heroes of the great unions clashes with the Government that defined the era. Made an example of, he went to prison simply for standing up for what he believed in and refusing to give in - an act that eventually cost him his health and his life as he had known it. strangers, seeing his mother slowly worn away by it all. While he continued with all the regular trials of growing up, life became an endless succession of campaigns, protest marches and prison visits - an experience from which the family never truly recovered. Told obliquely with all the unaffected charm and misunderstanding you might expect from a young narrator, Thirty Years in a Turtleneck Sweater is the story of growing up in the long shadow of a charismatic yet uncompromising figure. Both hilarious and moving, it is about a father who, in his own way, loved his son; and a boy who idolised his father, but could never get close enough (without being thrown in the sea).
