MICk WALL The Last of the Giants The True Story of Guns N’ Roses a definitive biography of Guns N’ roses by the man who was part of what remains the most iconic rock story of the last three decades.

Guns N’ Roses seemed to have leapt straight out of the coke-smothered pages of the original, golden age, late-sixties rock scene. ‘Live like a suicide’, the band used to say when they all lived together in the Hell House, their notorious LA home. And this is where Mick Wall first met them, and became part of their inner circle, before famously being denounced by Axl Rose in the song ‘Get in the Ring’. but this book isn’t about settling old scores. This is a celebration of Guns N’ Roses the band, and of Axl Rose the last of the truly extraordinary, all-time great, no giving-a-shit rock stars. The last of his kind.

Mick wall is one of the Uk’s best-known rock writers, author and Tv and radio programme-maker, and is the author of numerous critically-acclaimed books, including definitive, bestselling titles on Led Zeppelin (When Giants Walked the Earth) and Metallica (Enter Night).

CHARLOTTE AbRAHAMS Hygge The Art of Scandi Happy a beautifully written and stylishly designed guide to living a more hygge life.

‘Hygge’, pronounced ‘hoo-ga’, is a Danish philosophy that roughly translates to ‘cosiness’. but it is so much more than that. It’s a way of life that encourages us to be kinder to ourselves, to take pleasure in the modest, the mundane and the familiar. It is a celebration of the everyday, of sensual experiences rather than things. It’s an entire attitude to life that results in Denmark regularly being voted one of the happiest countries in the world. In this beautifully written and stylishly designed book, british journalist Charlotte Abrahams (with two divorces behind her) examines the impact hygge has on her home, her health, her relationships and, of course, her happiness.

Charlotte abrahams is a highly respected writer, editor and curator specialising in design and the applied arts. She trained at Central St Martin’s and since then has written for Financial Times How to Spend It, Guardian Weekend and Elle Decoration.
