You could read all about how everyday products work, but sometimes it helps to actually see it. Cut in Half: The Hidden World Inside Everyday Objects shows you what’s going on under the hood of many common items. Author Mike Warren and photographer Jonothan Woodward teamed up on this incredible project, in which Warren used a high-pressure waterjet cutter to slice through common gear and reveal its guts. From boomboxes to boxing glove, oil filters, and seashells, Warren and Woodward showcase the mysterious inner workings of these products across 144 pages in Cut in Half. The hardcover hits shelves on September 4, but you can pre-order now and clear a spot on your coffee table.

Unzip your coat and have some mulled wine on the house—you’ve arrived at your final gifting destination: The Holiday Gift Guide. It’s like your friendly neighborhood one-stop holiday shop, except instead of balsa wood ornaments, ours is packed with thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list. Future heirlooms, small-but-significant stocking stuffers, and gear for getting out there (or staying in)—are all right here. There’s no music playing in the background though, so you’ll just have to hum Bing Crosby while you click around instead.
