Hail at harvest time is every wine grower’s nightmare. For Seán and Caro Feely, a couple whose love of wine led them to create a flourishing organic vineyard in France six years previously, it’s become a chilling reality. But natural disasters are hardly a challenge when compared to the emotional havoc of approaching menopause and the hard work involved in keeping a long-lasting relationship fresh. Join Caro as she juggles family duties, a growing business and the challenges of making natural wine in harmony with the environment. Could yoga be the secret to balance in life and wine? And will she reach the other side with her marriage, her farm and her sanity intact?

Banaras, also known as Varanasi, is a Northern Indian city on the banks of the Ganges in Uttar Pradesh. One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, it is also one of the holiest in the Hindu faith. In this large-format book, the landscape and spirituality of this beautiful city come to life through the lens of award-winning photographer Christopher Roche. Spending two years covering the city's daily events, Roche turned his lens toward the alleyways of the old quarter and the ghats along the river, the holy men, temples, shrines, and religious ceremonies. He depicts the ubiquitous lingams and yonis, as well as the city s fabled burning Ghats, rarely photographed due to cultural restrictions. Banaras teems with life, color, and emotion. In his large, brilliantly hued images, Roche manages to capture the throbbing vitality of this important city as no one ever has before.

Martijn Doolaard traded the convenience of a car and the distractions of daily life for a cross-continental cycling journey: a biped adventure that would take him from Amsterdam to Singapore. Leaving behind repetitive routines, One Year on a Bike indulges in slow travel, the subtlety of a gradually changing landscape, and the lessons learned through traveling. Venturing through Eastern European fields of yellow rapeseed to the intimate hosting culture and community in Iran, One Year on a Bike is a vivid chronicle of what can happen when the norm is pointedly replaced by exceptional self-discoveries and beautiful sceneries. Doolaard shares the gear and knowledge that made his trip possible alongside the passionate curiosities that served as his impetus.

The breathtaking cityscapes of Serge Ramelli are finally available in a small flexicover edition and an unbeatable price The metropolis of Paris, presented with Serge Ramelli’s dramatic vision A fabulous and fascinating tour of the city in an incomparable light Film and photography meld into a black-and-white work of art Paris is the City of Light, love, and savoir vivre. And this world-class capital is surely one of the planet’s most photographed destinations, whether by tourists snapping a quick souvenir shot or professionals with high-end cameras. The brief preview we provide here shows how special this city really is. Paris has never been showcased as impressively, meaningfully, or dramatically as it is by the French photographer Serge Ramelli. His vision of the city—like all of his images—is unmistakably inspired by cinema. In addition to his second passion, filmmaking (which he does when he’s not taking pictures), he is also fascinated by the films of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Ridley Scott. Ramelli’s interpretation of the bustling metropolis of Paris is at once impressive and fabulous. Pulsing with life both day and night, the city appears nearly devoid of people—a heavily symbolic place with many facets to explore, shining with an inimitable light.

The perfect balance for those searching for a bit of peace and quiet and an outdoor activity: fly fishing combines connecting with nature, the defining of personal aesthetics, and physical activity. The Flyfisher shows the most beautiful fishing spots, self-tied flies, and the right equipment for this increasingly popular lark of leisure. Equal parts outdoor meditation and escapism, fly fishing appeals to a diverse audience. The dedicated focus on the task at hand makes daily life fade away and the fly fisher is free to connect with the soothing sounds of the water while awaiting a catch. From rod to reel to weighted line, the art of fly fishing is rife in details. Filled with photos of anglers and their habitats, the craftsmanship of tying flies, and expert discussions on the right gear to wear to wade into a favorite river, The Flyfisher is the first comprehensive discussion of this multifaceted sport. It is as much about the triumphant catch as the craft of building bait paired with the art of appreciating the overall experience as well as the method.

A perceptive and very personal portrait of Mallorca—Michael Poliza’s unique photographs and thoughtful selection of motifs makes this so much more than a conventional travel guide The island’s stunning variety of landscapes are captured in a single photo book Wherever you live, no matter the season, Poliza’s photos will make you long for sunshine and the sea   Rich with promise: one of teNeues’s most successful and revered artists uncovers an inimitable tourist destination for international travelers. Nature photographer Michael Poliza has already published nearly a dozen books—­including bestsellers like Africa, Eyes Over Africa, and AntArctic—and as an organizer of high-end nature adventure treks, he has a particularly keen sense for unique locations. For his latest tome, he focused on a place of legendary beauty that brims unexpected surprises: ­Mallorca. It’s no wonder that Mallorca has certain qualities in common with tapas, the island’s culinary specialty. The great thing about tapas is that you don’t have to make a meal out of just one ingredient; you can taste a bit of this and have a nibble of that and enjoy a broad spectrum of flavors. And that is the perfect way to describe the vacation mecca of Mallorca, which boasts an attractive mix of old and modern architecture, lively beaches and secluded bays, and the vibrant city of ­Palma and quaint mountain villages. On the ground or from the air, Michael Poliza paints an intimate picture of Mallorca and its most exciting locales—the salt mounds of Es Trenc, Cala sa Nau, the Cap de Formentor lighthouse, and the serpentine road to Sa Calobra—and fulfills his promise magnificently.

A unique cultural history of travel and tourism in the 19th and 20th centuries This volume will awaken feelings of both nostalgia and wanderlust  Full of historic photographs that will amaze and delight   Relax by the ocean or head to the mountains? This vacation planning debate-starter is actually a fairly recent invention. To people of an earlier era, both options seemed unappealing and nearly impossible to visit. It wasn’t until railroads came along that remote areas  became accessible, making travel agency founder, Thomas Cook, the inventor of modern tourism as well. Fishing villages turned into swanky beach resorts, out-of-the-way mountain hamlets became hot destinations for hikers and skiers, and humble inns blossomed into grand hotels. Nostalgic Journeys takes you on an unforgettable trip through the last two centuries: ride the Orient Express to the Middle East, cross the Atlantic on an enormous steamship, follow Route 66 through the USA, or break through the sound barrier on the Concorde. Paging through this volume will remind you that traveling was and can be more than just sitting in traffic or enduring security checks. Travel can also be a stylish and sometimes adventurous way to experience the world and return home forever changed by exotic sights and sounds. Bon voyage!
