Don Marquis,George Herriman,E B White: The Best of Archy and Mehitabel

The Best of Archy and Mehitabel


A selection of the best of the hilarious free-verse poems by the irreverent cockroach poet Archy and his alley-cat pal Mehitabel. Don Marquis's famous fictional insect appeared in his newspaper columns from 1916 into the 1930s, and he has delighted generations of readers ever since. A poet in a former life, Archy was reincarnated as a bug who expresses himself by diving headfirst onto a typewriter. His sidekick Mehitabel is a streetwise feline who claims to have been Cleopatra in a previous life. As E. B. White wrote in his now-classic introduction, the Archy poems "contain cosmic reverberations along with high comedy" and have "the jewel-like perfection of poetry." Adorned with George Herriman's whimsical illustrations and including White's introduction, our Pocket Poets selection--the only hardcover "Archy and Mehitabel "in print--is a beautiful volume, and perfectly sized for its tiny hero.

An encyclopedia of life skills, smart ideas and great design, "Remake It: Clothes" blends inspiration, entertainment and hands-on know how in equal measure, producing a wealth of almost-forgotten word-of-mouth skills, step-by-step projects to create new clothes from old and accessories from found materials, plus design examples from celebrated international designers, to show what can be created with a "Remake It" philosophy. With over 500 illustrations, 250 of which have been specially commissioned The Best of Archy and Mehitabel free epub for the book, and featuring introductory essays on the history and context of recycling clothes in the fashion industry, as well as tips on vintage clothing, storage and caring for your clothes, "Remake It: Clothes" draws together global trends, traditional practices and modern innovations into a harmonious and life-enriching guide.
