Our pals at Tiny Atlas Quarterly have a book out this week — a gorgeous collection of photos from some incredible global locales. None of the touristy stuff, just lush and dreamy cityscapes, jungle scenes, architectural ruins, and too-good-to-seem-true beaches. – Jeralyn, editorial director

"Educate a boy and you educate a man. Educate a girl and you change the next generation."

I love how globetrotting designer Michelle Nussbaumer transformed two ruined buildings in the in Bajío mountains of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico into a colorful and eclectic family retreat. - California

To begin and end this list with new books written by Gentedimontagna pals, this week I interviewed Katie Parla on the Prince Street Podcast about her terrific new cookbook, Food of the Italian South: Recipes for Classic, Disappearing and Lost Dishes. - Pavia
