"How It Is" by Nicolas Burrows
This spiral-bound paperback book by London-based artist Nicolas Burrows is for children and anyone young at heart. Its narrative sequences play with the concepts of sound and color through lively illustrations and easy language that combine to reinterpret our world. His imagining of the natural environment lends a fresh perspective on how we see, hear, touch and experience the everyday. It’s a warm, charmingly naive encouragement of curiosity, observation and appreciation for the simple things in life.

We are lifelong bibliophiles. Shelves filled with books line our studio walls and more are stacked on every surface. We admire their design, scrutinize their typography, fetishize their paper and analyze their binding. We read them for research, for inspiration, for the sheer pleasure of exploring new worlds of thought and experience.
We have curated a selection of books to offer our audience, based on our interests and yours. Most of our books are limited editions or out of print, they are seldom available in the US, and not available on Amazon.
The fact that we have now launched our own imprint seems an inevitable extension. Wms&Co. books are created in collaboration with the interesting characters, visionaries and designers we encounter. Subject matter varies wildly but is always infused with the spirit of creativity and a respect for good design.
