  • Eyelike Stickers: Christmas

    Workman Publishing

    Paperback (Workman Publishing Company, Aug. 11, 2015)
    EyeLike Stickers: Christmas celebrates the biggest holiday of the year with 400 high-quality, photographic images that are amazingly lifelike in color and detail. The durable, reusable stickers are designed to be stuck on and peeled off over and over again without losing adhesive. Ornaments and Santa hats, reindeer and an old-fashioned sleigh, trees to decorate, stockings to hang, presents to unwrap—every page of stickers captures the feeling of Christmas. Use them to decorate notebooks, cards, scrapbooks, crafts, party invitations, lunchboxes, even windows; create a lively scene on the book’s inside front and back covers—which double as glossy illustrated backgrounds—and change them up when the mood strikes.

    Irene Smit, Astrid van der Hulst, Editors of Flow magazine

    Hardcover (Workman Publishing Company, Oct. 3, 2017)
    Take time to breathe. Take time to create. Take time to reflect, take time to let go. A book that’s unique in the way it mixes reading and doing, A Book That Takes Its Time is like a mindfulness retreat between two covers. Created in partnership with Flow, the groundbreaking international magazine that celebrates creativity, beautiful illustration, a love of paper, and life’s little pleasures, A Book That Takes Its Time mixes articles, inspiring quotes, and what the editors call “goodies”—bound-in cards, mini-journals, stickers, posters, blank papers for collaging, and more—giving it a distinctly handcrafted, collectible feeling. Read about the benefits of not multitasking, then turn to “The Joy of One Thing at a Time Notebook” tucked into the pages. After a short piece on the power of slowing down, fill in the designed notecards for a Beautiful Moments jar. Make a personal timeline. Learn the art of hand-lettering. Dig into your Beginner’s Mind. Embrace the art of quitting. Take the writing cure. And always smile. Move slowly and with intention through A Book That Takes Its Time, and discover that sweet place where life can be both thoughtful and playful.

    Paperback (Workman Publishing Company, Sept. 23, 2014)
    A New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe and Indie Bestseller! Playful spaniels completely covered with snow—“There’s no such thing as ‘bad’ weather.” Two happy dogs sleeping, one on top of the other— “Sometimes you need a pillow. Sometimes you are the pillow."

  • Quackery: A Brief History of the Worst Ways to Cure Everything

    Lydia Kang, Nate Pedersen

    Hardcover (Workman Publishing Company, Oct. 17, 2017)
    What won’t we try in our quest for perfect health, beauty, and the fountain of youth? Well, just imagine a time when doctors prescribed morphine for crying infants. When liquefied gold was touted as immortality in a glass. And when strychnine—yes, that strychnine, the one used in rat poison—was dosed like Viagra. Looking back with fascination, horror, and not a little dash of dark, knowing humor, Quackery recounts the lively, at times unbelievable, history of medical misfires and malpractices. Ranging from the merely weird to the outright dangerous, here are dozens of outlandish, morbidly hilarious “treatments”—conceived by doctors and scientists, by spiritualists and snake oil salesmen (yes, they literally tried to sell snake oil)—that were predicated on a range of cluelessness, trial and error, and straight-up scams. With vintage illustrations, photographs, and advertisements throughout, Quackery seamlessly combines macabre humor with science and storytelling to reveal an important and disturbing side of the ever-evolving field of medicine.

And Language Arts―Circle the correct homophone in this sentence: Luke is a Jedi knight/night. Featuring favorite characters like Luke Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Yoda, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and other creatures, monsters, Jedi, and Sith, the workbooks are filled with thousands of original illustrations drawing from all six Star Wars movies and the expanded Star Wars universe.Learn well, you will.
