What does a soccer player or surfer actually need? What is the robe of the samurai called and what is the archaeologist packing for her next expedition? What occupations and hobbies do adults have and what do they need? From clothing to accessories to work tools, in this large-format picture book Owen Davey uses graphic illustrations to present a wide range of leisure activities and professions.

gestalten continues to actively reimagine the way in which we approach publishing. With our extensive range of titles, we not only seek to enhance and to enrich our reader's lives, but to continually engage with the surrounding creative landscape. An origin story that began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both our content and our expertise has widened. Today, using a myriad of observations of culture, people, art, and other intimate, inspirational informants, we document and anticipate vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design & fashion, escapism, food & beverages, travel, and contemporary art. In 2014, little gestalten joined the literary ranks and ensured that there was a place for readers of all ages within the world of gestalten.
