PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish, features artists such as Kurt Vonnegut, Ryan Kerrigan, AJ Masthay, Jason Lees and Jamie Huntsman. Pete Mason, a special education teacher living in Albany, NY noted that “PhanArt has been a labor of love for many of us, and we’re grateful to for the fans to come together and have supported this book for the past 4 years of its creation and helping bring the book to life.” Mason noted that the book was an impressive collaborative effort that led to a finished product many fans had a hand in helping to create. “We have over 1600 items in the book, submitted by more than 1000 Phish fans, some of whom offered their shirts and other fan-art in an effort to be part of capturing a slice of Americana that would otherwise fade into obscurity” The 400+page book will feature more than 1600 pieces of art and over 40 essays, all created by fans of Phish, as well as numerous fan memories and stories collected over the bands 21-year existence. -1- With a purchase price of $25.00 USD, all net-profits from the sale of PhanArt will benefit The Mockingbird Foundation, a non-profit organization created by Phish fans to support music education. All artists in the book, as well as the contributors and Mason have declined to accept any compensation for their efforts in creating the book. “To make profit off this book would be against the Phish community – this book gives back into the community it came from, through funding music education throughout the country" Through the project website (www.phanart.net) fans submitted art they created in honor of the band. Original posters, bumper stickers, shirts, tattoos and even painted cars and license plates are some of the items Mason and his team have collected since starting the initiative in 2004. Only original items, not licensed by the band, were accepted for inclusion in PhanArt. The collaborative community aspect of the book highlights Phish fans and culture immensely. “There was a culture and community established at Phish shows that really reflected the positive emotion inspired by the band and we wanted to capture that, through the art, before it was lost forever. I think this book does just that,” said Mason

.A cookbook for—and by—fans of the rock band Phish. Like the band they follow from city to city, Phish fans have their own history of creativity, which in turn follows them wherever they go—even into the kitchen. Edited by Taraleigh Weathers and Pete Mason, PhanFood brings together many of the recipes that Phish fans have made and shared over the years. Included are appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, entrées, desserts, drinks (with and without alcohol), and a variety of other concoctions that Phish fans enjoy while they are in the lots, at the site, or just sitting at home waiting for the next tour to be announced. PhanFood is also a wholly nonprofit endeavor, with all net profits being donated to regional food banks and charities in the cities where Phish plays. A cookbook by Phish fans and for Phish fans (as well as anyone else who likes good, healthy food), PhanFood aims to benefit the Phish community and to give back to the communities Phish fans visit as they follow the band to the next great show!

This edition of Halide Edib Adivar's Memoirs, prefaced with Sibel Erol's excellent introduction, is important and timely. When stereotypes of women in the Muslim world abound, Halide's memoirs remind us of the courage and dedication of "foremothers" who struggled for emancipation at both personal and national levels. These memoirs open a window on the search for personal expression of a woman caught up in the oppressive dynamics of her polygamous households (parental and marital), and the travails of national liberation and nation-building in Turkey, in which she played an active role. Halide speaks to us with an urgency which now cries out to be heard more than ever. Halide Edib's memoirs are indispensable reading for anyone interested in the history of childhood and education in the late Ottoman Empire. Edib worked to spread public education, instituting schools in Istanbul and in the Arab provinces during World War I. Her account is vibrant and direct, off ering an excellent witness to this critical period during which the Empire collapsed. Halide Edib lived through the most turbulent times in modern Turkish history. Most unusually for a woman of her day, she did so not only as an eyewitness, but as an active political participant. She was on close personal terms with powerful leaders such as Talat Pasha and Ataturk, but retained a critical and independent mind. All this gives her memoirs their unique character. The book provides new light on the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish nation.
