2015 Cavallini Italian Art Calendar Collection

Cavallini finds inspiration in everything from a hand-colored 18th century engraving, a Parisian city guide from 1921, to a print found in a vintage French encyclopedia. Each calendar holds a stunning and unique collection of 12 vintage prints from the Cavallini archives. Spiral bound wall calendars are 13 by 19 inches and easel-style desk calendars are 6 by 6.5 inches. Both are printed in Italy on acid-free, laid cream paper. The images are perfect for framing.
The Wall Calendars are $21.95 each and the Desk Calendars are $12.95 each.

The Drunken Botanist
The Drunken Botanist

A New York Times Bestseller! Sake began with a grain of rice. Scotch emerged from barley, tequila from agave, rum from sugarcane, bourbon from corn. Thirsty yet? In The Drunken Botanist, Amy Stewart explores the dizzying array of herbs, flowers, trees, fruits, and fungi that humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform into alcohol. This fascinating concoction of biology, chemistry, history, etymology, and mixology – with more than fifty drink recipes and growing tips for gardeners – will make you the most popular guest at any cocktail party.
