God only knows what possessed Bill Bryson, a reluctant adventurer if ever there was one, to undertake a gruelling hike along the world's longest continuous footpath—The Appalachian Trail. The 2,000-plus-mile trail winds through 14 states, stretching along the east coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine. It snakes through some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in North America, as well as through some of its most poverty-stricken and primitive backwoods areas. With his offbeat sensibility, his eye for the absurd, and his laugh-out-loud sense of humour, Bryson recounts his confrontations with nature at its most uncompromising over his five-month journey. An instant classic, riotously funny, A Walk in the Woods will add a whole new audience to the legions of Bill Bryson fans.

What do you do when life is too chaotic? How about felting a gnome? Or 365 of them, one for each day of the year. Artist and wool crafter Jessica Peill-Meininghaus decided that she needed a project to teach herself follow-through in life. She settled on making one of her popular felted-wool gnomes every day for a year. With pipe cleaners and wool roving, amidst the chaos of raising four children and moving cross-country, Peill-Meininghaus felted her way through hundreds of charming, pointy-hatted, often bearded characters. Lavishly decorated with photos of each charming creation, The Gnome Project is the surprising and magical story of what happens when we commit to something small. (Hint: It's something very big, as in making life more meaningful.) Here is her inspirational tale, complete with gnome-making instructions.

With the introduction of digital photography, unprecedented numbers of people are flocking to the art form, trying their hand at creating effective photographs of people, landscapes, still lifes, and other subjects. As the ranks of photographers swell, it becomes more and more difficult to achieve a standout body of work—something that sets your work apart from the barrage of images we are all inundated with on a daily basis. As Laurie and Kyle Klein prove in their new book, infrared capture may be that magic bullet. Infrared photographs have a mystical feel. Before the dawn of digital capture, infrared light waves, which are invisible to the naked eye, could only be captured using specialized films that required precise handling and a level of technical proficiency that most photographers lacked. Today, infrared films are largely unavailable; digital infrared is the wave of the future, and most photographers have a retired digital camera (whether an older-model DSLR or an old point & shoot camera) on hand that they can permanently modify for digital-only capture. So, you’re ready to jump in and try your hand at producing wildly different images. Where do you start? In this book, Laurie and Kyle Klein present a brief history of infrared, then move on to discuss all of the nitty-gritty technical information you’ll need to understand how those invisible wavelengths will be recorded in your camera and the steps you’ll need to take to ensure the best-possible resulting photographs. The authors provide a plethora of sample images that show you how various materials—from skin, hair, and eyes to environmental subjects like the sky, trees, grasses, and clouds—will appear in your images. They also teach you how to previsualize the final image: You will learn to predict the way that the colors and tones you perceive with your naked eyes will be rendered in-camera. You will also learn how to effectively frame your subject(s) and scenes to draw the viewer’s gaze into and through the frame in a predictable manner, and keep him or her visually engaged. With the basic theories of infrared capture and image design deftly handled, the authors discuss further artistic applications. You’ll learn how to add selective color to your black & white infrared images and how to create color infrared images that take infrared capture to a whole new level. Finally, the educators detail basic image-editing strategies that will allow you to finesse the tones and contrast in your images. Armed with the scientific insights and artistic applications in this book, you will be able to easily branch into a new genre of creative capture—whether you’re interested in pushing your creative abilities to new levels for self-satisfaction or are looking to offer your studio’s clientele a new product line.
