Rainbow bagels and unicorn cookies meet the color-for-calm craze in a "rebelliously cute" coloring book

Classic comfort foods—grilled cheese, cinnamon buns, donuts, burgers, and pies—are as popular as ever. They tap into a nostalgia for simpler times, which is also one of the driving factors in the rise of adult coloring activities. Like those foods, coloring books are finding a stronghold in our daily lives. So when hand-drawn comfort foods serve as the springboard for complex coloring designs, including repeating patterns, mandalas, abstract scenes, and kaleidoscopes, the result is nothing short of extraordinary.

Mindful and meditative coloring is great for the brain, but these images add an element of play that is sometimes missing in adult coloring books. They are by turns surprising and eccentric—a wall of pie slices resembles something worthy of Wayne Thiebaud, a river of coffee bobbing with donuts is Willy Wonka-esque, and the influence of pop artists such as Andy Warhol is visible throughout the 60-plus original designs. Printed on perforated, heavy paper, these illustrations are a terrific addition to the coloring book genre.

A good night's rest is the key to health and productivity. Yet millions of people lie awake struggling to get to sleep. The mind races, the body tenses, and the opportunity for peace stays out of touch. Until now. Coloring is turning out to be more than a passing trend—it really does calm the brain, which in turn relaxes the body, making it easier to float off into dreamland. It's also a low-tech option that requires only a book of simple illustrations and a few colored pencils or markers. Research shows that reaching for a screen can overstimulate the mind. It's time to set the phone aside and look to more natural solutions.

In this unique collection of soothing drawings and patterns to color, easy meditations, and serene sayings—made to color and internalize—readers will be lulled into sleep. Ironically, the idea of having to color in an entire drawing can be stressful in and of itself, so the pages of Dream are designed to take less than ten minutes to complete. Printed on heavy paper, with perforations for easy tear-out pages, the coloring books in this series offer great benefits for little time or cost.

Quilts are among the most utilitarian of art objects, yet the best among them possess a formal beauty that rivals anything made on canvas. This landmark book, drawn from the world-renowned collection of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, highlights the splendor and craft of quilts with more than 300 superb color images and details. Fascinating essays by two noted scholars trace the evolution of quilting styles and trends as they relate to the social, political, and economic issues of their time.
 
The collection includes quilts made by diverse religious and cultural groups over 400 years and across continents, from the Mediterranean, England, France, America, and Polynesia. The earliest quilts were made in India and the Mediterranean for export to the west and date to the late 16th century. Examples from 18th- to 20th-century America, many made by Amish and African-American quilters, reflect the multicultural nature of American society and include boldly colored and patterned worsteds and brilliant pieced and appliquéd works of art.
 
Grand in scope and handsomely produced, Four Centuries of Quilts: The Colonial Williamsburg Collection is sure to be one of the most useful and beloved references on quilts and quilting for years to come.

Let the adventure begin with this straightforward guide to GURPS!

This is it—the key that unlocks the riches of GURPS (Generic Universal Role Playing System) and gives you a wealth of information on how to create your character and fine-tune your play. Produced in partnership with Steve Jackson Games, the game's creator, GURPS For Dummies is the ideal companion to GURPS Basic Set, 4th Edition that explains the rules. It gives you insight into the choices you’ll make in everything from creating a fun, dynamic character using the allotted number of points, to playing in an adventure, to becoming a GM. Whether you want to be an Amazon princess or a stalwart warrior, an old-fashioned swashbuckler or a modern investigator, a tough cop or a cat burglar, a sorcerer casting spells or a cosmic ranger, fighting lawlessness in the asteroids, this guide will help you:
  • Determine your character’s basic attributes: IQ, DX (dexterity), ST (strength) and HT (health)
  • Figure out your character’s secondary characteristics
  • Choose advantages (including powers and perks) and disadvantages (including quirks and disadvantages with a self-control roll modifier)
  • Optimize your points by using talents
  • Select your skills based on functional area or the campaign setting
  • Enhance your character with spells, magic items, magic staves, and powerstones
  • Strategically purchase equipment for different characters, tech levels, and campaign types
  • Create and manage a character sheet, write a character background, keep a character log, and more—all with samples
  • Choose good combat techniques and play with your character

If you want to become a GM, this guide gets you going with advice on creating the adventure, managing the character creation process, managing combat, and interpreting the rules. There’s even a handy Cheat Sheet tear-out GM screen in the front of the book. There are tips throughout, plus advice on how to:

  • Create your very own GURPS universe for your campaign, whether it’s dungeon-crawl, high-adventure, combat-focused, puzzle-focused, or masquerade-type
  • Provide a basic write-up of the world for your players, including technology level, supernatural and supernormal abilities and powers, races, setting, character templates, cultural and social information, and limitations
  • Create an electronic combat grid, a battle log, a tactical map, and more—with samples
  • Do mapping, planning, and plotting
  • Create memorable NPC (nonplayer characters), both good guys and bad guys

GURPS For Dummies helps you create more detailed, exciting, and interesting characters and take your game to the next level. That’s important whether you’re saving a princess or saving the planet…searching for hidden treasure or for secrets to eliminate disease… fighting crime or combating armies of evil robots…casting spells in medieval castles or destroying terrorist cells in modern day milieus. With GURPS, the only limitation is your imagination.

Take your succulents to the next level with these stylish and creative projects

From blue- green to purple and pink, flower-shaped to squat and spiky or tall and fuzzy, the variety, versatility, and low-maintenance care of succulents makes them go-to plants for home gardeners. Here, succulent stylist Rachael Cohen shows that these traits also make succulents the ideal material for living art. Tiny, jewel-like succulents can be clipped and replanted in infinite combinations, and unlike cut flowers, they thrive in these arrangements. When planted in corks, they become charming living magnets; when placed in seashells, they are a delightful reminder of a day at the beach. Succulents can also grow nestled in moss, creating an opportunity for even more creativity: arrange them atop mini pumpkins or adorn a headband or a tiny wreath.

"The present moment is filled with joy and happiness," says Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. "If you are attentive, you will see it." In Joy, author and teacher Cher Kaufmann offers readers several ways to become open to joy. Here are uplifting, hand-drawn mantras for readers to color. By interacting on the page with the words through color, the exercise becomes meditative. Kaufmann also provides dozens of her beautiful illustrations to color, simplified here to basic patterns and symbols so they can be completed in just a few minutes. In only ten minutes, readers will be able to tap into the ancient knowledge and deep wisdom of this art through coloring, but also through carefully curated short meditations and tips for attaining bliss.

Research has shown that simply by thinking positively, people can train themselves to have more of these thoughts. The brain regions that regulate happiness literally receive a surge of blood. Like a river on a bed of rocks, this carves out a neural pathway, making it easier for more joy to flow. Bring it on!

Once upon a time, there lived in France a humble juggler, Barnaby by name, who was skillful but suffered every winter from poverty. A devotee of the Virgin, he had few failings apart from enjoying drink a little too much. One day he met a monk, who persuaded him to enter a monastery. There he felt miserable at his inability to show his devotion to the Virgin Mary as the other monks did. Then an idea came to him: he would perform before the Madonna! The monks caught him and were outraged or thought he was mad, but soon they saw the Virgin descend from the altar to soothe him. He may be simple, but his heartfelt offering of talent was appreciated. The moral? We do not need to be maestros or to have much money and master's degrees. We all have something to give.

This simple story has medieval beginnings?a lovely poem often known as ?Our Lady's Tumbler? that dates to the 1230s. Many writers and artists have been inspired by it, and the line art in this coloring book was thoughtfully chosen and carefully prepared from books published a century or so ago. Enjoy the beauty of these illustrations as you add your own colors to the story!

Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em

Poker is America’s national card game, and its popularity continues to grow. Nationwide, you can find a game in progress everywhere. If you want to play, you can find poker games on replicas of 19th century riverboats or on Native American tribal lands. You can play poker at home with the family or online with opponents from around the world. Like bowling and billiards before it, poker has moved out from under the seedier side of its roots and is flowering in the sunshine.

Maybe you’ve never played poker before and you don’t even know what a full house is. Poker For Dummies covers the basics. Or perhaps you've played for years, but you just don’t know how to win. This handy guide will help you walk away from the poker table with winnings, not lint, in your pockets. If you’re a poker expert, you still can benefit – some of the suggestions may surprise you, and you can certainly learn from the anecdotes from professional players like T.J. Cloutier and Stu Unger.

Know what it takes to start winning hand after hand by exploring strategy; getting to know antes and betting structure; knowing your opponents, and understanding the odds. Poker For Dummies also covers the following topics and more:

  • Poker games such as Seven-Card Stud, Omaha, and Texas Hold'em
  • Setting up a game at home
  • Playing in a casino: Do's and don'ts
  • Improving your play with Internet and video poker
  • Deciphering poker sayings and slang
  • Ten ways to read your opponent's body language
  • Playing in poker tournaments
  • Money management and recordkeeping
  • Knowing when and how to bluff

Poker looks like such a simple game. Anyone, it seems, can play it well – but that's far from the truth. Learning the rules can be quick work, but becoming a winning player takes considerably longer. Still, anyone willing to make the effort can become a good player. You can succeed in poker the way you succeed in life: by facing it squarely, getting up earlier than the next person, and working harder and smarter than the competition.

Foreword by Chris Moneymaker, 2003 World Series of Poker Champion.

Experience the magic of the beach with this photographic collection of treasures in the sand

Seashells are tiny treasures, each one completely unlike any other. Their variety of shapes, colors, and sizes makes collecting—and even searching for—seashells a favorite pastime of avid and occasional beachcombers alike.

As she did for the ocean’s other jewels in Sea Glass and Sea Glass Seeker, photographer Cindy Bilbao captures the ridges, striations, and hues of delicate shells everywhere she finds them. Displaying sun- bleached fragments, glittering, cantaloupe- colored nacre, and scallop shells washed by the tides, Bilbao’s photographs embody magic and mystery. From weathered quahogs and mussels on the cooler shores of New England to a rich, chestnut-colored Florida Fighting Conch shell nestled in the sands of its namesake state, she describes in intricate detail how these shells are formed and why they look the way they do. Complete with Bilbao’s expert tips for finding the most unique shells and enjoying the hunt, Seashells is the perfect gift for any anyone who loves the beach.

Sudoku For Dummies, Volume 2 will offer 240 original and addictive puzzles including new circular and 16 x 16 puzzles to add new dimensions to game play and keep the most avid Sudoku fan entertained.  Of the 240 puzzles, 220 are the popular 9x9 puzzles, 10 are 16 x 16, and 10 are circular puzzles. Within each of these categories there are Easy, Tricky, Tough and Diabolical puzzle ratings; and each puzzle is clearly identified with the rating.

More than just a listing of puzzles, Sudoku For Dummies, Volume 2 features a chapter explaining how to solve puzzles and the strategies involved.  Additionally, readers receive all puzzle solutions in the back of the book. Finally, Sudoku For Dummies, Volume 2 includes a brief history of Sudoku (or Su Doku) for those interested.  Descriptions of the newer types of puzzles are listed below.

Circular Sudoku (10 included:  3 Easy, 3 Tricky, 2 Tough, and 2 Diabolical)
The rules are similar to the normal 9x9 Sudoku but with some important differences. The puzzle is circular for a start, with 8 concentric rings. Each ring must contain the numbers 1-8 and each segment running into the centre of the circle and through to the opposite side of the circle must contain the numbers 1 - 8 and or course there can be no duplicate numbers.

16 x 16 Sudoku (10 included: 3 Easy, 3 Tricky, 2 Tough, and 2 Diabolical)
The grid is larger at 16 x 16 and solvers must fit the letters A-F into the grid alongside the numbers 0-9. 16 x 16 Sudoku are more difficult, take more time and are more infuriating than the normal puzzles - but just as addictive!

"Like a favorite recipe, a posy is meant to be savored and shared. Try it yourself, and … welcome a bit of floral enchantment into your life."
—Amy Stewart, author of
 The Drunken Botanist

Inspired by the Victorian-era language of flowers, a posy is a small, round bouquet of flowers, herbs, and plants meant to convey a message, such as dahlias for gratitude, sunflowers for adoration, or thyme for bravery. These floral poems have become Teresa Sabankaya’s signature. Brides want them for their weddings, but a posy is a lovely gift any time of year, and one that readers can easily put together from their garden or with blooms from their local florist.

In The Posy Book, Sabankaya shares step-by-step instructions, floral recipes for more than 20 posies, and ideas for seasonal variations. A modern floral dictionary, with 12 original paintings by celebrated illustrator Maryjo Koch, will help readers craft their own posies filled with personal meaning.
