              At the turn of the twentieth century, the artists of the Swedish Rorstrand porcelain factory created some of the most beautiful decorative objects of the Art Nouveau period. This sumptuous volume is illustrated with objects from Robert Schreiber's outstanding and rare collection,... the results of 25 years of dedication. Bengt Nystrom's authoritative text focuses on the Rorstrand factory, a former castle, between 1896 and 1915. Nystrom perceptively details the social history of the quickly growing labor movement, the expansion and growth of the Rorstrand factory, and the emergence of an especially creative cadre of artisans. Detailed craftsmen's drawings and fascinating archival documents provide engaging glimpses into Rorstrand's close-knit community.

              From nationally recognized parenting expert Armin Brott, author of the best-selling resource The Expectant Father, here is a fun introduction to a serious concept: impending fatherhood. Organized according to the nine months of pregnancy, the book has a trivia-night format: The p...ages feature 180 multiple-choice questions, with engaging, informative answers on the back. For example: While sex during the second trimester is great, during the third trimester it s bound to (a) be even better, (b) suffer, (c) be non existent, or (d) stay the same. Answer: (b). While the second trimester is frequently a time of increased sexual desire and activity, during the third trimester your sex life is bound to suffer. This is usually due to fear of premature labor, hurting the baby, or physical discomfort. If you haven't already done so, now's a really good time to discuss non-sexual ways of connecting with your partner. A perfect gift at a baby shower or just handed over on guys night out, FAQ for Expectant Fathers is a must for all dads-to-be.
