Jess Quinn is, in her own words, quite literally a walking miracle. Her body has been completely restructured so that she could survive an aggressive cancer. Jess' leg was amputated when she was a young child, and she has worn a prosthetic leg ever since. She's created a successful modelling career, has a huge following on social media, was on Dancing with the Stars and is outspoken on the subject of body diversity. She has strong messages about resilience. Over the past couple of years she's had a number of major setbacks and her legs have been in constant pain, and she's been unable to do many of the things she used to do like running and dancing. Some days she couldn't get out of bed. Jess has a remarkable way of talking about her pain and difficulties, and is inspirational in her response to the difficulties that have beset her. Her philosophy embraces the fact that none of us get to keep the body we were born in; we all bear scars that become part of our stories. She's learned to change her narrative and be grateful for what she can do, rather than focus on the negatives.
This is a book about flower arranging from the perspective of a gardener.
Harvesting from the garden means short, wonky stems, bruised petals, insects crawling out of blooms and the open invitation to claim a weed or vege as vase fodder. Flowers for Friends is both a reflection, and story of the seasons brought indoors by Julia Atkinson-Dunn when harvesting from her garden and foraging in Canterbury, New Zealand.
Written in her signature casual tone (as seen in her first book Petal Power), Julia offers an accessible guide to picking, conditioning and arranging home- grown treasures, celebrating their quirks and encouraging unexpected combinations. Seasonal chapters profile arrangements she has made, detailing plants in season and inviting readers to play without the hunt for perfection, or restraint.

Man-about-town and NYC men's style fixture Matt Hranek is back with his second book, A Man & His Car. Here is a beautiful homage to an object of men's obsession, told in firsthand original interviews. Jay Leno, a major car collector and the host of Jay Leno's Garage , shares the story of his oldest car, a 1955 Buick Roadmaster that he bought for $350, which he literally slept in before getting his break in L.A. Kevin Costner reveals that he got so attached to the iconic Shelby Mustang he drove in the movie Bull Durham , he bought it for his own personal collection. Franz von Holzhausen, chief designer at Tesla, who worked hand in hand with Elon Musk to design the Tesla Model S prototype, says that his love of cars started when he was two (as evidenced by a picture of him sitting in a high chair drawing a car). And as for Snoop Dogg and his 1965 Cadillac "Snoop DeVille" convertible--do we even need to explain? A Man & His Car includes visits to some of the most exclusive collections in the world--from that of the Petersen Automotive Museum to those of car manufacturers from Fiat to Alfa Romeo--giving us access to Steve McQueen's favorite car, a 1956 Jaguar XKSS; the 1971 DeTomaso Pantera that Elvis purchased for his then-girlfriend Linda Thompson (and which has two bullet holes in the steering wheel and one in the driver's-side floorpan from when, after an altercation with Thompson, Presley fired three rounds into the interior when the car wouldn't start); and a super-rare, 24-karat-gold-plated 1980 DeLorean DMC-12, a model that was sold exclusively to American Express Gold Card members through the 1980 American Express catalog, for an astronomical $85,000 (equivalent to more than $250,000 today). Exquisite photos of each car accompany each story, and since cars naturally hold more detail than watches, there will be more photos in this book--of the cars head-on, of their hood ornaments and wheels, and of course full-body shots. With Hranek's storytelling, the cars become more than just vehicles for transportation and status symbols; they represent pop-culture moments, pioneering achievements, heirlooms, friendships, and more.
To step into potter Frances Palmer's world is to be surrounded by the trappings of a life that has been intentionally--and painstakingly--built to maximize creativity. A light-filled, airy studio in which to make her pottery, with a corner always at the ready for her daily photo shoots. Cutting gardens overflowing with flowers to be snipped as inspiration strikes. Shelves of cookbooks to peruse as she plans the menu of her next dinner party, and museum catalogs and art books to pore over when it's time to imagine a new vessel. After 30 years as an artist and entrepreneur, Palmer has learned how to cultivate a life that brings out her best. Those years have been at once rewarding and challenging, fruitful and fraught, and through it all, she has discovered the things that matter most: determination, routine, prioritization, perseverance, and perspective. She has distilled these hard-won lessons, and more, into her debut book, a manual for current and aspiring creatives. The book is loosely arranged chronologically, beginning with Palmer's background in art history and the foundations of her pottery practice through to the day-to-day of running her successful business and tending to her ever-evolving gardens, and culminating in the continuous exploration and collaboration she is engaged in today. Along the way, readers are brought behind the scenes with hundreds of gorgeous photographs (of her ceramics, her beautiful flower arrangements, her gardens, and more), and even step-by-step instructions for her most cherished techniques and recipes. It all adds up to a one-of-a-kind portrait and handbook for a creative life, well-lived.

Wild at Home - How to style and care for beautiful plants by Hilton Carter
Take a tour through Hilton’s own apartment and other lush spaces, filled with a huge array of thriving plants, and learn all you need to know to create your own urban jungle.
As the owner of over 200 plants, Hilton feels strongly about the role of plants in one’s home – not just for the beauty they add, but for health benefits as well: ‘having plants in your home not only adds life, but changes the airflow throughout. It’s also a key design element when styling your place. For me, it wasn’t about just having greenery, but having the right variety of greenery. I like to see the different textures of foliage all grouped together. You take a fiddle leaf fig and sandwich it between a birds of paradise and a monstera and…. yes! You will be armed with the know-how you need to care for your plants, where to place them, how to propagate, how to find the right pot, and much more. And most importantly, how to arrange them so that they look their best. Combine sizes and leaf shapes to stunning effect, grow your own succulents from leaf cuttings, create your own air plant display, and more.
