Out of stockOne of the most famous and unmistakable shapes in the world since its introduction in 1915, the Coca-Cola bottle is an influential symbol of design, art, and culture. Identified by its iconic contour fluted lines and described by noted industrial designer, Raymond Loewy as the “perfect liquid wrapper,” the bottle has been celebrated and revered in such mediums as art, music and advertising. From representations as a symbol of mass culture expressed by greats like Andy Warhol and Clive Barker to serving as a reference point for industry influencers such as Volkswagen who compared the shape of the Beetle to the bottle, the Coca-Cola bottle has been a benchmark for the past hundred years. What began as a design brief: to create a bottle that could be identified in the dark or lying broken on the ground, today is one of the most recognized packages on the planet. Published on the occasion of the bottle’s centennial, Kiss the Past Hello is a vibrant collection of images and art celebrating the Coca-Cola bottle not only as an icon of design but as a symbol of optimism, happiness, and the shared moments in our lives.

Saints of Old Florida is about life along the Florida Panhandle. Particularly the more undiscovered areas of Port St. Joe, St. Vincent's Island, Indian Pass, St. George Island, Apalachicola, St. Teresa, and St. Marks.
These coastal towns are indeed the "Saints" mentioned in the title - as they were all named by early Spanish settlers to the area. However, the most important
"saints" here are the many saintly things we cherish daily. A dozen raw oysters, bare feet on pine porches, dinner together around our tables, and nights spent too long at beach bonfires. In short, these experiences are the true "saints."
Saints of Old Florida shares the coastal life of today, but also the history and age-old stories that are the culture here. A time-honored feel that you don't find in many places - our book shares just that and explains why and how the essence of Old Florida exists... and survives. Saints of Old Florida is a collaboration by three creatives at different stages in life - 20s, 40s, 60s - but who all share a rich and heartfelt history with Old Florida, a passion for the area and its coastal lifestyle.Learn More
