The Shopkeepers

Good stores still exist. In fact, their number is growing. Well-designed specialty shops that are inspired by the small manufacturers and mom-and-pop operations of the past are now sprouting up. These outlets are defying e-commerce and anonymous online shopping with outstanding products, original interior design, innovative concepts, and, first and foremost, friendly and competent customer service.

The Still Life

The still life is a classic back in bloom. In contrast with the immobility of the objects it depicts, it has been speedily making its way onto contemporary platforms—from glossy magazines to Instragram feeds. Today’s creatives are developing new visual storytelling techniques with this age-old genre. This book showcases these innovative directions in product portraiture and editorial photography by some of our time's most imaginative photographers, designers, and stylists.

The Journey

Trains have always been the only truly cultivated way to travel. Today, in the age of budget airlines, never-ending security controls, and sustainability issues, this is truer than ever before. The slower rhythm from departure to arrival, the relaxed glide through the landscape, and the shift between city and country fill rail enthusiasts with great joy and are pleasures waiting to be discovered by the uninitiated.
