Martyrdom: The Coloring Book

Martyrdom: The Coloring Book
$16.99

The lives of the saints are filled with inspiring, life-changing moments, but the deaths of the martyrs are where you'll find the "Oh, hell no!" moments of history. This adult (very adult, as the body count will quickly indicate) coloring book gives aspiring crayon and paper artists the chance to hone their craft while also buffing up their knowledge of Catholic history and legends. Each intricately detailed illustration from acclaimed graphic artist Julia Gfrörer leaves plenty of room for interpretation. And the attending stories will go down pretty easily at cocktail hours as well.

Microbiology Coloring Book

Microbiology Coloring Book
$24.99
This is a book about microorganisms: viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoans, and multicellular parasites. It is a text on microbiology, and covers basic microbiology, medical microbiology, and some industrial microbiology. It is an unusual text because it offers the student an opportunity to learn by coloring illustrations in a planned and meaningful sequence. The coloring approach opens the subject of microorganisms to high school students, yet college and graduate students will also find the content of this text challenging. A great deal of information can be gained from studying and working properly designed illustrations. "A picture is worth a thousand words." The student who colors the plates of this book will find real satisfaction in understanding the subject matter because it can be visualized. When recall of the material is required, the picture, complete with thoughtfully applied colors, quickly comes to mind. This book is a very important way to learn about a broad spectrum of microorganisms and how they interact with humans. Happy Coloring!

Poems of Resistance Poems of Hope

Poems of Resistance Poems of Hope
$6.00

An Independent Bookstore Day Exclusive!

Without hope, resistance has no objective. The media is saturated with uncareful language. In poetry, we find precision, peculiarity, and potential.

Poems strive less for answers than enliven our questions. The poets in Poems of Resistance, Poems of Hope, take up these questions with an eye for what’s possible. These poems break open the human spirit, and remind us that through language, community, and art, the endeavor for empathy is not lost. Resistance and hope are alive, in the world, and on the page.

Poets included:

Joy Harjo, Jericho Brown, Yusef Komunyakaa, Louise Gluck, Richard Blanco, Arthur Sze, Ada Limón, Eve. L Ewing, Camonghne Felix, José Olivarez, Morgan Parker, Ariana Reines, Hanif Abdurraqib, Jake Skeets, and many more.
