First published in1982 by Cesare Leonardi and Franca Stagi, The Architecture of Trees is a botanical encyclopedia for designers, architects, and nature enthusiasts alike. The large-format edition features quill-pen illustrations of 212 species of trees at a scale of 1:100. Each one is featured with and without foliage and includes a table of seasonal color variations as well as a depiction of the shadows cast throughout the day and season. The labor of love took the two Italian designers 20 years to complete and this gorgeous re-issue is the book's first English-language volume.

Presented in a fresh, neutral colorway, these New Balance 327s are a must for the casual summer rotation. The '70s-inspired silhouette is constructed from a combination of breathable mesh and lightweight suede to create a comfort-forward upper. An oversized logo adds to the retro appeal, while ghost pepper branding on the tongue provides a vibrant contrast against the muted palette. The sneak is finished with a thick white midsole and a heavily-treaded black outside.
Grado has been in the audio business since the '50s, and they take their reputation seriously. As such, they took their time developing a true wireless earphone, and the GT220s are the result. Their compact black bodies house custom mini-drivers to deliver the neutral, lively sound the company is known for. They also integrate touch controls, a built-in microphone for calls and voice control, and a battery that lasts up to six hours per charge. The carrying case adds another five full charges and supports recharging both wirelessly and over USB-C.
