    An extraordinary book about equality founded on 200 original and diverse interviews with women from around the world

    You can’t empower women without listening to their stories – Gloria Steinem

    Famous and unknown, celebrated and marginalised, rich and poor, black and white, leaders, victims, survivors, heroes, saints and sinners. Women who will educate and inspire us, teach us empathy, and bring positive change in a time when so many women and girls are still fighting for basic freedom and equality.

    Founded on original interviews and accompanying photographic portraits, this landmark book is the realisation of an epic global journey to find two hundred women with diverse backgrounds, and ask them what really matters to them.

    All two hundred women were photographed against the same background and asked the same five questions. Their answers reveal truth, wisdom, and inspiring stories of success and courage, love and pain, redemption and generosity. From well-known activists, artists and innovators to everyday women whose lives are no less exceptional, each woman shares her unique replies to questions that reveal a human being's deepest motivation, happiness, sadness and hope.

    Each interview is accompanied by a photographic portrait from award-winning photographer Kieran E. Scott, resulting in a volume that is complelling in both world and image - and global in its scope and resonance. With responses that range from uplifting to heartbreaking, these women offer gifts of empowerment and strenth, inviting us to bring positive change at a time when so many people are fighting for basic feedom and equality. It's a book that confirms what we already know - there are no ordinary women.

    A percentage of proceeds will be distributed to organisations primarily devoted to protecting and advancing the rights of women.

    Aside from being world-famous artists, what's one thing Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Frida Kahlo had in common? They were crazy about cats. At one point, Andy Warhol had 25 cats living in his apartment; they were all named Sam. Controversial contemporary artist Ai Weiwei shares his Beijing studio with 45 cats, one of whom can open doors!

    Artists and Their Cats gathers photographs of fifty famous artists with their beloved feline friends and offers behind-the-scenes stories of their relationships. From Salvador Dali’s pet ocelot Babou to John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s menagerie of cats including Salt (who was black) and Pepper (who was white), this charming little book reveals many an endearing friendship—and reveals the personality traits often shared between the daringly creative souls among us and the animals best known for their independent spirits.

    Publishing status: April 2019 New Release

    A completely fresh and utterly charming reimagining of the modern classic Blue Day Book.


    Twenty years after its first printing, Bradley Trevor Greive's New York Times bestseller The Blue Day Book has become a modern classic that brings smiles to readers around the world. And because we all still have bad days now and then, the time is right for a commemorative twentieth anniversary edition, featuring revised text, a new foreword, and exquisite illustrations by celebrated French-American artist, Claire Keane.

    With an adorable new hero, Elephant, whom we join on a deeply emotional life-journey that is familiar to us all, Keane's wonderful images and BTG's witty and inspirational text are designed to lift the spirits of anyone who's got the blues. No one can read this this book without smiling: it's guaranteed.

    We all have our bad days - they are an intrinsic part of being human. The solution is to see each incident in perspective, recognize that our feelings of failure and loss are neither unique nor enduring, acknowledge the absurdities of our existence, and glory in the potential we all have. In fewer than one hundred sentences The Blue Day Book conveys this message with great compassion and humour, taking us through the complete evolution of a blue day - what it feels like, what causes it, how to get over it.

    The Blue Day Book has sold more than 2 million copies in Australia alone, and over 13 million in 115 countries worldwide.
