    Created by a group of friends who preserve 55 acres of hidden forest in Upstate New York, Cabin Porn began as a scrapbook to collect inspiration for their building projects. It has since grown into a collection of photos of the most remarkable handmade homes in breath-taking landscapes from all over the world, and has attracted a dedicated, obsessive following. In this book the creators of Cabin Porn go further into its most alluring images, with more interior photography and the stories behind some of these unusual and inspiring homes. With their idyllic settings, unique architecture and cozy interiors, the Cabin Porn photographs, are an invitation to step away from our online lives, slow down, take a deep breath, and feel the beauty and serenity that nature and simplicity can create.

Coco’s World is a compilation of Megan Hess’ stunning illustrations of the 100 most quintessential moments through Chanel’s history, from Coco’s incredible life, to the impact of Karl Lagerfeld on the company and the incredible items that have become iconic of the brand – the little black dress, the luxurious bags and accessories, glamorous jewellery and of course the renowned Chanel No 5 perfume. Interspersed with historical anecdotes and famous quotes from Coco herself, Karl Lagerfeld and other key fashion icons of the era, this book is an elegant and immersive introduction to the moments that shaped Coco and the iconic Chanel brand – and how fashion, in turn, shaped their lives.

    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The inside story of The Doug Anthony All Stars then and now. The no-holds-barred true story behind how the bad boys of Australian comedy reunited - weaker, sicker, funnier, older...but not wiser.

    Under the guise of his alter ego Flacco, Paul Livingston once basked in the reflected glory of Tim Ferguson, Paul McDermott and Richard Fidler, and their anarchic comedy incarnation, the Doug Anthony All-Stars. At their peak D.A.A.S. teetered on international greatness, and Paul teetered with them, until that teeter was abruptly toppled in 1994.

    Flacco and Paul now find themselves wrenched out of comfortable but obscure retirement to tread the boards again with Tim Ferguson and Paul McDermott - but this time as part of D.A.A.S., playing to sell-out crowds across Australia.

    As a fly on the pungent walls of D.A.A.S. dressing-rooms over the decades, Paul Livingston has lived and played alongside these men, probing their depths and shallows. In D.A.A.S.: Their Part in My Downfall he reveals all - their rise, disappearance and rebirth - and interviews their fans, colleagues and famous peers and admirers.

    In 2016 the bad old men of Australian comedy dared to venture back to where it all began thirty years ago - the Edinburgh Festival.

    Can they recapture the magic? Will anyone remember them?
