While we might sometimes think of the English as being a bit button-down, at the end of the day, the Brits actually know how to relax more effectively than we do on this side of the Pond. With trademark Anglo cheekiness, Laura Weir perfectly captures the British essence of "cosy" (or "cozy," if you prefer), and here she celebrates socks, warms to the joys of toasty open fires, and extols the virtues of a quiet walk, while showing how the concept can influence what we eat, read, and watch. With more than 140 whimsical illustrations and interviews with British lifestyle experts like Melissa Hemsley, Sophie Dahl, and Dolly Alderton, this thoughtful guide is a perfect reminder to slow down and have a cuppa.
