Full Speed Ahead! How Fast Things Go

Written by Cruschiform

Did you know a tornado travels faster than a racecar? Full Speed Ahead! directly compares the speeds of animals, modes of transport and forces of nature in a clear and visually-striking album format. Objects are grouped from slowest to fastest, with objects of the same speed on the same spread, creating fascinating "match" races. The bright, vintage-style illustrations by French design firm Cruschiform have strong crossover and museum appeal. A glossary in the back matter gives additional information on each object. Published by Abrams & Chronicle Books, November 1st, 2014.

The Gift

This moving fictional memoir begins as a woman heads home after a meeting regarding her inheritance. Rebeling against the legalese uttered by the attorney, her mind drifts back to her childhood and she sees her life with sudden clarity. On the train, she jots down a few notes, which prompt the poetic outpouring of memory and emotion that make up this delicate novel.
