Of Course Soccer Is in Here

Of Course Soccer Is in Here

The tome: It’s about the soccer kind of football. But if you’re not a fan, you’re in a safe place here. It’s mostly pictures of fetching people doing things that are neat.

Big Boats. Fancy People. Win-Win.
YACHTING

Big Boats. Fancy People. Win-Win.

The tome: Well, this is a book that glorifies the sh*t out of yachts and all the excess that goes along with them. We didn’t think you’d mind.
