and His Watch
By Matt Hranek
A watch is an extremely personal possession. You wear them every day but more than a simple tool, they are status symbols and markers of achievements. They're heirlooms passed down through generations. Matthew Hranek, stylish man about town and an avid watch collector himself, traveled the world conducting firsthand interviews and diving into exclusive collections to gather the never-before-told stories of nearly 100 watches of famous and fashionable men, each one beautifully photographed exclusively for the book. This is the kind of book you keep picking up and finding a new story to love.

Van Life: Your Home on the Road
By Foster Huntington
Here's the downside to Foster Huntington's new book, Van Life. After flipping through a few pages, you'll start to look around your house and wonder why you're not living in a vintage van. The wanderlust is real. An ode to living on your own terms and on your own schedule, the book is packed with lush, dreamy photos of old school vans with cleverly designed interiors parked in the most serene locations—from the West Coast (the redwood forests and Joshua Tree) to Bolivia's salt flats and even underneath the northern lights of Alaska.
