United States of Americana ($10) is essentially a field guide to the American Roots movement and is a fascinating and vivid account of why and how young urban Anericans found inspiration in the culture and traditions of a time long gone and brought that ethos into contemporary life. Compiled by Kurt B. Reighley, a DJ, entertainer and writer based in Seattle, United States of Americana explores this buzzing cultural phenomenon. From the clothes, to the music, to the rejuvenation of home canning, food and drink, burlesque, circuses and straight razors.
Stop wasting money on cheap and tacky razors, instead invest in a limited edition Ursa Major Black Walnut Razor ($36). Expertly crafted using reclaimed black walnut for the handle each piece is just as unique as the first. Its beauty can only be matched by the quality of the blade, and is compatible with both Gillette and Venus offerings. The initial release sold out in the first two days, so grab one before they're gone for good!
The 2014 Dodge Charger 100th Anniversary Edition ($2,200) is being released to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Dodge.

The grill and wheels will be in granite crystal and the interior will have choices of either black or red leather. The Charger power plant options are either a V6 or V8. Expect the cars to be available some time in Q1 2014.

Have you ever studied a can of beer before cracking it open? No? Well knows your chance. In alphabetic order, Beer ($15) gives us an insight into a remarkable collection of over 500 cans from 30 countries that range from the iconic to the obscure. They are all here, from the busty lovelies that adorned the Tennants cans to Old Frothingsloth. This is a veritable bible for beer fans who can reminisce over forgotten brews and relish in the fact that many classics have moved with the times to become firm favorites. Both beer and design fans will love this book. Many of these will be familiar, many of them will not, but the overall feelgood factor is hard to beat.
