With over 7 million copies sold worldwide, WHAT TO EXPECT THE 1st YEAR is one of the world's bestselling books on infant care - and it has now been updated and revised throughout by Heidi Murkoff. This comprehensive and practical month-by-month guide clearly explains everything parents need to know - or might be worrying about - in the first year with a new baby. The book covers monthly growth and development, feeding for every age and stage, and sleep strategies that really work. It is filled with the most practical tips (how to give a bath, decode your baby's crying, what to buy for baby, and when to return to work) and the most up-to-date medical advice (the latest on vaccines, vitamins, illnesses, SIDS, safety, and more). Featuring dozens of Q&A sections, as well as a first-aid guide and charts on monthly growth and development, feeding and sleeping habits, this is the only book on infant care to address both the physical and the emotional needs of the whole family. Covering the most up-to-date knowledge, both medical and developmental, WHAT TO EXPECT THE 1st YEAR is, above all, down-to-earth and reassuring - and an invaluable aid for all parents of new babies.
ToiletMartin PaperParr is a new, special edition of Toiletpaper published by Damiani. This unique edition celebrates a new suite of pictures presenting a back-to-back of images made in collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari on the one side and Martin Parr on the other. The recipe is very tasty: the founders of Toiletpaper hosted Martin Parr as a special guest and asked him to form a dialogue with Toiletpaper images, coming back to them with a photograph from his archive for each image. The result is a rapid succession of images in which irony, subversion and provocation force the viewer to the impelling discovery of the next pair of images. And if you are not yet satiated by the end of this issue, you have only to start once more at the beginning.

If Animals Could Talk
Author: Dr. Werner Gitt
Publisher: New Leaf Publishing Group
If animals could tell us about themselves, using our scientific knowledge, if they could tell us about the way they live, the special way they are made and many details about their individual design - what they would say would be unique praise to the Creator. Did you know that while in flight, the sparrow's heart can beat up to 760 times per minute? Or that a baby blue whale grows at a rate of 7.28 pounds an hour while it's nursing, a grand total of 17 tons by the end of the nursing stage? How about that glow worms have a light output efficiency of 100% as compared to only 4% for our incandescent bulbs? Dr. Werner Gitt, one of the foremost creationist speakers in the world, uses his scientific expertise in this book to show the unique design features of some of God's most captivating creations. All people, young and old, layperson or expert, will be able to understand and enjoy this straightforward book. Told from the perspective of the animals being described, If Animals Could Talk clearly shows the impossibility of life without design. Dr. Gitt uses simple language to provoke a sense of wonder and awe at the marvelous design of the Creator.

Modern Urban Girls
Author: Stefan Soell
Publisher: Skylight Editions
Text in English & German. "No more romance", said the renowned erotic photographer Stefan Soell, after enjoying great success with his two lavish photographic volumes entitled "Alpenglow" and "Volcanic Girls". A completely new, modern style of portraying the nude was required, and Stefan has once more succeeded convincingly. He searched for the right type of woman to match his vision for three long years, finally settling on something between the young, successful, cool businesswoman and glamorous movie star. Oozing beauty, of course, fantastically built, with a confident, cheeky appearance, and unashamedly flaunting their sex appeal. Soell has discovered over 16 completely new, never-seen-before faces, and managed to fit all their glorious nudity into the unprecedented environment of finest, ultra-modern, minimalist architecture. The contrast between the wonderful, warm skin tones, sensual body shapes and the cool, modern architecture could not be greater, and the very unusual combination of hot eroticism and cool design increases the attraction of this volume of photographs immensely.

“The kind of writing that makes us want to read the whole book as soon as possible; a shot of adrenaline that immediately takes us to a new world.”—David Varno, Words Without Borders Journalist Daniel Mandelkern leaves Hamburg on assignment to interview Dirk Svensson, a reclusive children's book author who lives alone on the Italian side of Lake Lugano with his three-legged dog. Mandelkern has been quarreling with his wife (who is also his editor); he suspects she has other reasons for sending him away.After stumbling on a manuscript of Svensson's about a complicated ménage à trois, Mandelkern is plunged into mysteries past and present. Rich with anthropological and literary allusion, this prize-winning debut set in Europe, Brazil, and New York, tells the parallel stories of two writers struggling with the burden of the past and the uncertainties of the future. Funeral for a Dog won the prestigious Uwe-Johnson Prize, and critics raved: "Pletzinger's debut is a real smash hit. It's been a long time since a young German writer has thrown himself into the hurly-burly of life and literature with so much intelligence and bravado" (Wolfgang Hobel, Der Spiegel).
