From the writers of indie film magazine Little White Lines comes a brand new one-of-a-kind coffee table book, dedicated to those passionate about film.

At the end of every Little White Lines issue the question 'what do you love about movies?' has been put to some of the biggest stars on the silver screen.
This new book brings together 50 of the most inspiring answers, accompanied by 50 iconic artworks, commissioned by Creative Director Timba Smitsto to leading talent in art, graphic design and contemporary illustration.
This book both celebrates and defines all that is wonderful about film, whether you love it or not. The answers are described as profound and unique, featuring legendary directors such as The Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino, plus some of the best actors in the industry; Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Kristen Stewart, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Tom Hardy."The close-up. It's an overlooked great invention of the 20th century. The fact that one can stare into someone's eyes without being self-conscious is a great gift to all of us. It's why I love cinema." — Darren Aronofsky

We have a signed copy of the book to give away this month - for your chance to win please enter below!

Summer may be ditching us but that doesn't mean we need to stop socialising around the BBQ - at least in Sheffield that is. Set on the ground floor of the iconic ‘Cheese Grater’ car park building of Saint Paul’s Place you will find brand new restaurant Smoke Barbecue.  The company's motto "Put the fork down - it's time to get dirty" already has us excited!  With the smoking process and live fire pit in full display from your table, the social aspect of a traditional BBQ is celebrated. We should also mention the fabulous interior design of this place, the industrial edge really adds to the overall laid-back feel - we've kitted this one out with some of our industrial style lights!

With more locations planned across the country it won't be long before we are enjoying Summer vibes throughout the whole year.

"Small, compact, cosy or cute – no matter how you label them, homes of limited proportions can be stylish little spaces." - Sara Emslie

Most people would think that organising a small space would be easy, less room less stuff, right? ...Well it's not always quite that simple.
With the cost of rent and house prices on the rise, many people are starting to down-size or opt for studio accommodation. Living spaces need to get smart.
This new book by Sara Emslie, a stylist and writer from London, offers the best space saving solutions out there without a compromise on style or design, so you can be proud of your compact-but-cool living space.

Good things really do come in small packages!
Available to order here.
 
 
FILM: GONE GIRL

Based on the immensely popular bestseller by Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher, whose previous films include modern classics Fight Club and The Social Network, and it stars newly-revived critics' favourite Ben Affleck. It's a safe bet then, that Gone Girl, in cinemas this month, will deliver something special.
 
When Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike) suddenly goes missing, suspicious eyes turn to her husband Nick, played by Affleck, whose performance shrewdly plays on his own experiences of media scrutiny to bring to life a character whose personality and motives are under fire. There are no easy answers in this crime thriller, and the tense plot will keep you asking questions as the dark whodunnit story unfolds.
 
We're certainly intrigued!
 
Gone Girl is in cinemas from October 2nd.
