Topo Designs and New Balance’s just-released collaboration collection is made up of sneakers, a backpack and a crossbody bag. The Rover Pack features a flap closure, two exterior zippered pockets (plus two on the sides), and contrasting shoulder and tightening straps—in desert brown and bright red, respectively. Inside there’s a large main compartment and a laptop sleeve. While Topo’s signature retro-styled tag remains, there’s also space for New Balance’s logo. Though it’s not a technical backpack, there’s no shortage of details at play—from the suede panels to clever use of space.
By skateboarder and artist Jerry Hsu, The Beautiful Flower Is The World is a photo book filled with chaotic and clever shots taken on lo-fi cellphone cameras. In his spare time, Hsu would snap everything from portraits of friends to bathroom graffiti, bedazzled cowboy boots and everything between. He uploaded these shots to a blog, and published his favorites in this 288-page book.
Through images photographed between 1949 and 1950, Leo Goldstein’s East Harlem: The Postwar Years tenderly depicts the lives of that era’s newest immigrants, Puerto Ricans. A Russian-Jewish immigrant himself, Goldstein used photography to subvert stereotypes and spotlight everyday heroism within the community. “We who lived through those years in East Harlem can assure you, his lens was truer than any of the news articles, movies, or books of the era, and we are all enriched by the work he left behind,” Juan González writes in the book’s preface.
An autobiography by punk icon Debbie Harry, Face It: A Memoir was crafted by Harry and music writer Sylvie Simmons. The fascinating tome is full of history, anecdotes and wild tales, but steers clear of being a full-on confessional—which perfectly suits Harry’s impeccably crafted Blondie persona. From her teenage years to moving to New York, meeting Chris Stein, her rise to fame and the creation of Blondie (the band and the character), nearly everything gets documented candidly alongside never-before-published photographs and artwork. Of course, there’s much more to Debbie Harry than Blondie, and plenty of that is explored within, too.

From award-winning journalist and author, Ta-Nehisi Coates, The Water Dancer is a stunning debut novel that has garnered universal praise for its dense, detail-rich prose and its moving tale about freedom. Though a work of surrealist fiction set in Virginia midway through the 19th century, the novel touches on themes that are still present today: the separation of families, the generational mistreatment of minorities, and the long-lasting impact of slavery in the USA.
