Discover the endless possibilities of air plants—from home and office to weddings and other events—with this inspiring care and design guide. Air plants, also known as tillandsia, are some of the easiest plants to grow. Unlike most plats which require soil, air plants use their roots to anchor themselves to an object, which allows them to inhabit a variety of locations naturally. With proper care, tillandsia will live for several years and will even provide “pups” for additional years of enjoyment. This flexibility and longevity makes them ideal for decoration, bringing vibrance and intrigue to nearly any space. Authors Meriel and Ryan Lesseig are air plant enthusiasts and the co-founders of Air Plant Design Studio, an e-commerce site that sells all things air plants. Here they share tips for properly caring for air plants as well as inspiration and instruction for a myriad of ways to decorate with them, including air plant wedding bouquets, wall art, terrariums, wreaths, and more.

Drawing on Frank G. Kerry’s more than 60 years of experience as a practicing engineer, the Industrial Gas Handbook: Gas Separation and Purification provides from-the-trenches advice that helps practicing engineers master and advance in the field. It offers detailed discussions and up-to-date approaches to process cycles for cryogenic separation of air, adsorption processes for front-end air purification, and related process control and instrumentation. The book uses SI units in accordance with international industry and covers topics such as chronological development, industrial applications, air separation technologies, noble gases, front end purification systems, insulation, non-cryogenic separation, safety, cleaning for oxygen systems, economics, and product liquefaction, storage, and transportation. No other book currently available takes the practical approach of this book — they are either outdated, too theoretical, or narrow in focus. In a clear and effective presentation, Industrial Gas Handbook: Gas Separation and Purification covers the principles and applications of industrial gas separation and purification.
