The Weekender cuts through the excess and picks the best things to take with you this weekend, beside your Lotuff bag.
- Getting It Wright: A beautiful new Taschen-published retrospective on Frank Lloyd Wright's work that covers his long, prolific career. Written by his former apprentice, the coffee-table book travels with the architect from suburban Chicago to Tokyo to Tucson. | Taschen |
- Craft Beer's New Seoul: Craft beer may be established stateside, but it's a new frontier in South Korea. Slate walks hand in hand with Korea's brewers as they navigate a peculiar market and try to meet skyrocketing demand. | Slate |
- Neo-Hamiltonianism: This weekend we'll be revisiting Ron Chernow's mammoth biography of Alexander Hamilton. Bastard child, financier, polyglot, writer, charmer, and dueler, America's first Treasury Secretary is a complex figure finally getting his story told. Chernow's biography is the inspiration for Hamilton, a Broadway musical that tells the man's life through hip-hop music. | Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow |
- Your Land Rover Defender, Cuban cigar style: Gear Patrol looks into the Dutch company handling the importation of vehicles that have never technically been available for sale in the United States. | Gear Patrol |
