art Our favorite illustrator, Matte Stephens (who did the cover of our book Shop Talk: New York's 100 Most Interesting Stores), has posted a number of new gouache paintings for sale. There are also dozens of limited edition prints that, for modest prices, bring major joy.




movie Ixcanul, directed by Jayro Bustamante, is a powerful Guatemalan film about a young Mayan woman's experience with the modern world for which she had yearned. Bonus: gorgeous cinematography.




book Women in Science is an illustrated look by Rachel Ignotofsky about 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World. Could not love this more!




TV Late summer binge watching? Here are two that are completely different but tons of fun in their own way. Stranger Things is an extended 1980s popcorn movie (here meaning Spielberg, Stephen King and John Carpenter) pastiche—sci-fi, small town, kids on bikes. Thrills, chills, allusions galore and some laughs… Then there's the one season of The Great British Bake Off (aka The Great British Baking Show) on Netflix, far more gripping than a warm bath has a right to be. The bakers, presenters and judges are lovely, the setting is beautiful and the clever Brits know how to extract every ounce of drama from a choux. (You can watch three seasons if you become a member of PBS/WMHT.)




music Essential listening: NYC-born Emily King's new album The Switch. the soul/pop singer-songwriter looks to be a breakout.
