Immerse yourself in the traditions that have defined our cultures and reveal our connection to what make us human. A new generation wants to lead a more meaningful and sustainable life by reconnecting with heritage and traditions. They are looking to the craftsmanship, lifestyle, and unique experiences of the people keeping these practices alive. The New Traditional tells the stories of those devoting their energy, skills, and creativity to crafts such as blacksmithing, distilling spirits, and globe making, and its authors revisit the customs of growing old varieties of apple, beekeeping and producing honey in gardens or on rooftops, and being modern shepherds in Italy or Iceland. They always seek to help preserve cultural traditions and share them with likeminded people.

The world of contemporary mapmaking is brought up-to-date in this revised and expanded edition of a best-selling book. For centuries we have used the tools of cartography to represent both our immediate surroundings and the world at large―and to convey them to others. In our age of satellite navigation systems and Google Maps, personal interpretations of the geography around us are becoming even more relevant. A new generation of designers, illustrators, and mapmakers have been discovering their passion for various forms of illustrative cartography and A Map of the World is a compelling collection of their work. This updated edition contains even more examples of their output, ranging from detailed representations to personal, naive, and contemporary interpretations.

Today, food is art and necessity, tradition and future, hope and concern. The preservation of our planet is closely related to how we, as its inhabitants, learn to reexamine and transform our eating habits. Almost simultaneously, food has become an extraordinarily innovative means for art and creativity. Cooks are artists, scientists, and gurus. For photographers and bloggers, fruits and vegetables are the new supermodels, and product designers have found an unlimited field of experimentation and creation. Food Futures presents a collection of design projects illustrating the possibilities that new technologies open up to designers and the way we perceive food from a design perspective. This book explores current experimentation and innovation in food design from both material and conceptual points of view. The projects selected for this edition have been realised through design, and perform inquiries into our responsibility, our relationship with food and the acts that surround it, and how social and environmental changes will transform the way we experience food in the future.
