New at Appletree: Candles by Furbish & Fire

Furbish & Fire has custom-made these delicately scented, locally made, soy-wax candles just for Appletree Books! They make great gifts for yourself or others.

“Based in Avon Lake, OH, Furbish & Fire Candle Co. sources all of its recycled containers locally. We have collaborated with several local establishments to re-purpose their empty wine bottles into something wine drinkers can appreciate again. This re-“furbishing” of bottles helped to inspire our name and fuel the passion that goes into every finished product.

“Each of our small batches is produced the artisanal way, just like the wine from which we recycle our bottles, with love and attention poured into each candle we make. We strive for supreme quality while remaining environmentally conscious. Our wine bottle candles are all hand-cut and polished, and all of our candles are hand-poured with all-natural soy wax, use lead-free, cotton wicks, and include premium, phthalate-free fragrances.”

Appletree Exclusive: Cleveland and Cleveland Heights Cards by Eric Silveman

Beautiful architectural photographs of Cleveland and Cleveland Heights grace these cards made especially for Appletree by local photographer Eric Silverman.

“Architectural photography is the focus of my work. While many of my subjects are well covered, I try for angles and perspectives that are not commonplace. Other than cropping, I do not do much to alter the images other than some tweaking of the colors as needed. For cityscape shots, I often try to layer the buildings, showcasing the contrasts in styles. For my black and white photographs, Margaret Bourke-White and O. Winston Link have been my inspirations. Edward Hopper has been an influence for many of my cityscape photos, while Richard Estes nurtured my fondness for reflections of the city in display windows.”  – Eric Silverman
