Ever wonder what indie rockers on tour do for the other 23-hours of their day? Real Fun answers that question with over 100 photographs of musicians lounging in the giant green room that is the world--sleeping, eating, fishing and just goofing off. Photographer Ashod Simonian has traveled with scores of bands, and his dreamy, lush Polaroids capture Death Cab for Cutie, Spoon, Sleater Kinney, Pavement, Jenny Lewis, the Shins, Wilco and Broken Social Scene, among many others, in colorful images conveying not just stories but the feelings behind them: boredom, exultation, frustration and bliss.
After graduating from college and spending a magical year abroad writing our best-selling A Year in Japan, Kate T. Williamson felt ready for anything. But, like many a postgraduate, she needed some time to figure out just what that anything was. Her parents' house in Pennsylvania seemed like the perfect place for a brief layover, but twenty-three months later, Williamson was still contemplating the past and the future, while explaining to curious neighbors that, at present, her life was "at a crossroads."
At a Crossroads is a unique graphic memoir about the common, yet little-discussed, "boomerang years."

In a time of disconnect spurred by electronic media and instant gratification, Atlas II was created to help people redevelop an emotional attachment to something handmade. This idea was implemented by using forgotten techniques such as letterpress and hand binding. Each book's interior was created by a local printer and then cut down and hand folded by an Italian Artisan Apprentice.
Avery F. Gordon was invited by the artist to, collaborate on her project, titled The Workhouse. In this notebook, Gordon is engaged in a portrait of Breitenau, the twelfth-century Benedictine monastery, located twenty kilometers south of Kassel, that has been used throughout its history for various purposes, and since the nineteenth century has been a site of confinement and ?correction.?
