            An entertaining celebration of sustainable fashion, buying well and finding your style in the twenty-first century. 'The point of this book is to explore my ideas for sartorial satisfaction, to tell the stories associated with my love of clothes and fashion, and to share the mess...age of accidental sustainability.' When Peta Mathias dug through the clothes she had stored away for twenty years in her shed, she realised it was full of valuable, beautiful items that were crying out to be worn again- 'Fashion is mysterious, irresistible and alluring . . . they are not just frocks - they are beauty, art, history, emotion, memory, identity and, above all, joy.' From this arose a new appreciation of buying well but cannily, so your clothes will not bankrupt you nor go out of fashion. Reviving her neglected wardrobe, Peta revelled in mixing fabrics, colours and patterns, considering how to make an impact and how that dull pair of shoes can be transformed into something just a little bit fabulous.

            The inspiration story of the Cardrona Distillery 'Ever since I was really little, I have dreamed big dreams. It's nice to imagine what could be, and leave it at that. But I've never been that sort of dreamer. I've always wanted to take one of my dreams-find just the right one-and... turn it into something real.' Southern Spirit is the story of how former dairy farmer Desiree Whittaker and her husband Ash took a risk to realise a dream of setting up a world-class distillery. Their quest to produce a single malt whisky that would compete with the best whiskeys in the world is classic story of Kiwi persistence, sacrifice and self-made success. It's also a modern-day tale of living off the land in the high-country. Southern Spirit is an inspirational business story that will appeal to anyone who everyone loves a bold, brave and brilliant entrepreneur.

            Since the dawn of civilisation, we have kept time. But time has always been against us. From the city sundials of ancient Rome to the era of the smartwatch, clocks have been used throughout history to wield power, make money, govern citizens and keep control. Sometimes, also with... clocks, we have fought back. In About Time, time expert David Rooney tells the story of timekeeping, and how it continues to shape our modern world. In twelve chapters, demarcated like the hours of time, we meet the greatest inventions in horological history, from medieval water clocks to monumental sundials, and from coastal time signals to satellites in earth's orbit. We discover how clocks have helped us navigate the world, build empires and even taken us to the brink of destruction. Over the course of this global journey Rooney demonstrates how each of these clocks has shone a spotlight onto human civilisation, and shows us the very real effects clocks continue to have on everything from capitalism, to politics, to our very identity. This is the story of timing. And the story of timing is the story of us.
