A Weekend Of Love

RRP $16.99

A Steamy Billionaire Romance Series Former Ford model Grace Delacourt struts down a runway as much for charity as she does for a distraction from the terrible turn her billionaire boyfriend's business has taken. Her stroll down the catwalk resurrects a career she once walked away from. Introduced to Vogue for Veterans, a nonprofit managed by Garrett Bunting, a lawyer-turned-promoter, Grace becomes the next internet sensation. Her face graces magazine covers left and right, and her name is uttered from the lips of greats in the fashion industry. Just as it looks as if the foundation of Tony's empire is beginning to crumble, Grace inherits a fortune. Her biggest problem is one many would envy. What is she to do with all that money? Hot-blooded Greek god/billionaire Tony Petrides struggles to surf the choppy waves of a shaken business reputation while his beautiful fiancee enjoys a career that has rocketed her to being an international sensation, the stuff of every tweet and trending bar. Grace inherits a multimillion-dollar property in Savannah, Georgia, from a person who might have been Tony's sworn enemy at one time. Nevertheless, he takes it in stride, delighting in showing the sexy Grace the steamier side of the gothic South. Just when Tony thinks he's come through the storms and reached smoother sailing, that he'll end up with the money and the girl, filthy pictures of his beloved Grace litter the media. Tony's business recovers, but will the torrid, sensual passion and true love he shares with Grace be able to weather this latest storm?

The Unseen Bridegroom; Or, Wedded For A Week

RRP $16.99

A dark November afternoon-wet, and windy, and wild. The New York streets were at their worst-sloppy, slippery, and sodden; the sky lowering over those murky streets one uniform pall of inky gloom. A bad, desolate, blood-chilling November afternoon. And yet Mrs. Walraven's ball was to come off to-night, and it was rather hard upon Mrs. Walraven that the elements should make a dead set at her after this fashion. The ball was to be one of the most brilliant affairs of the season, and all Fifth Avenue was to be there in its glory. Fifth Avenue was above caring for anything so commonplace as the weather, of course; but still it would have been pleasanter, and only a handsome thing in the clerk of the weather, considering Mrs. Walraven had not given a ball for twenty years before, to have burnished up the sun, and brushed away the clouds, and shut up that icy army of winter winds, and turned out as neat an article of weather as it is possible in the nature of November to turn out.

Fashion Designers, A-z

RRP $900.00

The first printing is available as a series of "Designer Editions". Each edition will be bound in a fabric from one of six designers in the book and comes in a plexiglass box. The time-honored "Paisley" was Veronica Etro's pick for the "Etro Edition", limited to just 2,000 copies. From Azzedine Alaia, Cristobal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, the greatest fashion designers of the 20th and 21st centuries are featured in the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. The curators of America's premier fashion museum have selected 500 masterpieces of the art of fashion, providing a visual guide to the history of fashion. Known for its innovative and award-winning exhibitions and its outstanding permanent collection of more than 50,000 garments and accessories, The Museum at FIT in New York City is one of only a handful of museums in the world devoted to the art of fashion. The Museum has built its collection around aesthetically and historically significant "directional" fashion-the kind of clothing and accessories that move fashion forward. The designers are organized from A-Z: Adrian, Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior...through Xuly Bet, Yamamoto, and Zoran. Photographs of selected garments from the Museum's permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while curatorial texts explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured. In addition to showcasing 100 of the most important designers of the last century with essays by the curators at FIT and a foreword by Suzy Menkes, this book also explores how a fashion museum goes about collecting and exhibiting fashion. In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon. "Paisley": it's practically synonymous with the Etro name, and the five "Paisley" motifs selected by Veronica Etro for this edition are no exception. For decades the company has explored and reinterpreted the classic droplet-shaped vegetable decoration, rich in history and meanings, through experimentation and technology, drawing from the past into the present with timeless international style. Six designers - Akris, Etro, Stella McCartney, Missoni, Prada, and Diane von Furstenberg - have contributed fabrics - bold, iconic, revolutionary - to cover 1,000 to 2,000 books each, for a total first printing of 11,000 copies. Crafted by hand at a bindery in the heart of Italy, and stamped with a unique number, every copy is an instant classic, and an addition to your fashion library that is truly one-of-a-kind.


Five Weeks In A Balloon

RRP $18.99

What would it be like to explore a largely unknown swath of the world - from the air? That's exactly what the intrepid explorers in Jules Verne's Five Weeks in a Balloon set out to do in this novel, an early entrant in the literature describing European exploration of Africa. Like many of Verne's novels, this tale is so richly detailed and historically accurate that you'll feel like you've actually come along for the ride.
