Feminist Flashcards

Feminist Flashcards
$14.99
Young readers and budding activists can learn their letter sounds and a fun dose of women's history all at once with fabulously illustrated Feminist Flashcards.

Each colorful card has lots of learning and entertainment value: A single letter represents an important feminist--from Angela Davis to Zadie Smith. A simple, age appropriate description of her accomplishments or significance to the feminist movement is accompanied by an inspiring quote.

In addition to the cards, a 32-page book provides a timeline of women's rights around the world. Famous quotes and astonishing facts about sexist laws and practices contextualize the women featured in the cards, and their causes.

The cards can also be used for a number of fun games: matching, hidden pictures, and more!

Book That Takes Its Time: An Unhurried Adventure in Creative Mindfulness
$27.50
Take time to breathe. Take time to create. Take time to reflect, take time to let go. A book that's unique in the way it mixes reading and doing, A Book That Takes Its Time is like a mindfulness retreat between two covers.

Created in partnership with Flow, the groundbreaking international magazine that celebrates creativity, beautiful illustration, a love of paper, and life's little pleasures, A Book That Takes Its Time mixes articles, inspiring quotes, and what the editors call "goodies"--bound-in cards, mini-journals, stickers, posters, blank papers for collaging, and more--giving it a distinctly handcrafted, collectible feeling.

Read about the benefits of not multitasking, then turn to "The Joy of One Thing at a Time Notebook" tucked into the pages. After a short piece on the power of slowing down, fill in the designed notecards for a Beautiful Moments jar. Make a personal timeline. Learn the art of hand-lettering. Dig into your Beginner's Mind. Embrace the art of quitting. Take the writing cure. And always smile. Move slowly and with intention through A Book That Takes Its Time, and discover that sweet place where life can be both thoughtful and playful.

Doodling for Academics

Doodling for Academics
$15.00
To an outsider, working as a university professor might seem like a dream: summers off, a few hours of class each week, an exchange of ideas with brilliant colleagues, books and late afternoon lattes. . . . Who wouldn't envy that life?

But those in the trenches of academe are well acquainted with the professoriate's dark underside: the hierarchies and pseudo-political power plays, the peculiar colleagues, the over-parented students, the stacks of essays that need to be graded ASAP.

No one understands this world better than novelist Julie Schumacher, who here provides a bitingly funny distraction designed to help you survive life in higher education without losing your mind. Sardonic yet shrewdly insightful, Doodling for Academics offers the perfect cognitive relief for the thousands of faculty and grad students whose mentors and loved ones failed to steer them toward more reasonable or lucrative fields.

Through forty pages of original illustrations and activities--from coloring to paper dolls to mad libs--this book traces the arc of a typical day on campus. Get a peek inside the enigma of the student brain. Imagine a utopian faculty meeting. Navigate the red tape maze of university administration. With the help of hilarious illustrations by Lauren Nassef, Schumacher infuses the world of campus greens and university quads with cutting wit, immersing you deep into the weirdly creative challenges of university life. Offering a satirical interactive experience for scholars, the combination of humor and activities in this book will bring academia into entertaining relief, making it the perfect gift for your colleagues, advisors, or newly minted graduates.
