Pearls Before Swine is Pastis’s hilarious comic strip tale of two friends: arrogant, egotistical, “hound dog” Rat, and slow-witted, painfully naïve “teddy bear” Pig. Along with Zebra, the “jailhouse rock” activist; Goat, the “treat me nice” reluctant brain; and the “heartbreak hotel” carnivorous Crocs, Pearls delightfully mocks the flaws and shortcomings of human nature.

In Friends Should Know When They're Not Wanted, Stephan Pastis, of Pearls Before Swine fame, offers a funny take on the dark side of friendship as shown through sappy photographs and sarcastic quotes. Consider the following: * Friendships are like rainbows. They go away. * You can't put a price on a friend. Which is too bad. I'd like to sell mine. * There is no greater joy in life than the simple act of laughing with a friend. Except laughing at him. That rocks. From friends expanding each other's vocabulary with words like "shmulky shlumperdik," to true friendships lasting a lifetime (like chronic back pain), Pastis emphasizes that friends can sure be good for a laugh.

By two leading financial experts: an essential guide for every woman who wants to build, preserve, and enjoy her wealth. Women control more than half of all wealth in the U .S., and in 2011 held the majority of jobs in the workforce. As women's earnings, freedom and influence increase, the old sequential patterns of education, marriage, motherhood, and retirement no longer apply. A woman may set up a foundation in her twenties—when she sells her first company, support her family as the primary breadwinner in her thirties, start a new career in her sixties and remarry in her seventies. Today women cycle repeatedly but not in any traditional order through these stages: wealth building, romance and marriage, motherhood, power, crisis and loss, retirement, legacy building. In The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom, experts Carol Pepper and Camilla Webster offer women one invaluable pearl of wisdom for each of these key areas, helping them move beyond outdated financial-planning ideas to enjoy their power, transforming both their money and their lives.

From its earliest appearance in the 1890s, the newspaper comic strip has told the story of America, from the Irish ghetto of the Yellow Kid to flappers, war heroes, hippies, and today's office drones and soccer moms. American Newspaper Comics is the first comprehensive, authoritative reference work to document this fascinating history, listing over 7,000 different comic strip and cartoon features from American newspapers. While previous books have typically concentrated on the most popular comic strips and panel cartoon series, American Newspaper Comics is designed to be all-inclusive, providing detailed information on important but previously overlooked artists and features. The result of more than twenty years of meticulous research, American Newspaper Comics provides the most complete picture to date of the evolution of newspaper cartoon features and corrects misinformation that has circulated for years in other references. American Newspaper Comics offers a wealth of information, including the start and end dates of features, their format, frequency, creators, and distribution companies. The book also includes handy cross-indexes and a guide to book-length compilations of newspaper cartoons and comics. In addition, the book includes a CD with samples of more than 2,000 cartoon features, including some that may be new to even the most ardent fan or collector.

Beautiful jewelry made from natural materials fill the pages of this sumptuous book. Organized by material—pearls, shells, coral, horn, wood, and much more—with an emphasis on important motifs of the jeweler’s art, the book features more than 300 brooches, necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets from the collections of the Duchess of Windsor, Diana Vreeland, Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Grace of Monaco, and Ellen Barkin, as well as from the design archives of Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Verdura, Bulgari, Tiffany, and many other important jewelry designers. Every major period of jewelry of the past 200 years is covered—Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Retro, and Contemporary. Many of the objects appear here for the first time. The chapters include a variety of entertaining profiles on subjects such as David Webb; the changing fashions of the 1960s and 70s; Chanel; Orchids and Art Nouveau; the Grand Tour; Cartier and Art Deco; Ivory and the Nude; the Baroda pearls (the most expensive pearls to sell at auction); Paul Poiret; Boivin; A Mania for Motifs; JAR; Andrew Grima; and the Duchess of Windsor ("Small Woman, Big Stones"). Helpful sidebars cover various types of wood, famous pearls, and a lexicon of imaginary beasts in jewelry. “For those of us who consider jewelry part of enduring style, Living Jewels is a must. Here’s a book that is welcoming and inspiring, and a tribute to the artists who have made these exquisite pieces. Living Jewels is a book I’ll treasure.” ~ Kate Spade “Living Jewels sends a message, loud and clear: there’s more to fine jewelry than gemstones. A lot more, as it turns out. Ruth Peltason has assembled two centuries’ worth of spectacular examples, showcasing materials and techniques long considered peripheral or inferior to the big rocks that have dominated the category and its history. The result makes an expert, irrefutable case for coral, wood, pearls, amber, shell, horn, and any number of nature’s other sublime inventions as inspiration for exquisite artistry and design. As stylish, witty, and glamorous as the treasures it celebrates, Living Jewels is destined to become an instant, indispensable reference for connoisseurs and an irresistible delight for any woman who loves jewelry and wears it.” ~ Holly Brubach
