It is said that bathing connects mind and body, revives the senses, and invigorates the soul. The Art of the Bath is a sensuous guide to celebrating the ritual pleasure and healing art of bathing, offering a beautiful selection of photographs, poems, meditations, and sophisticated bathing suggestions. From the Turkish baths of Damascus and the pools of Pompeii to the steam rooms of Sweden and the bathhouses of Japan, here are the secrets to creating a steamy heaven on earth. The authors also dip their toes in outdoor baths, natural hot springs, mineral baths, mud baths, steams, and saunas. Including recipes for decadent bath-time refreshments such as Lemongrass and Thyme Tisane, and with ideas for fabulous scrubs, infusions, and aromatics, The Art of the Bath will inspire hours of heady pleasure in the old clawfoot.

Soak Up New Ideas for Bathing
The American bathroom has gone from the most unmentionable to perhaps the most sybaritic room in the house.

Today, bathrooms are designed for refreshment, replenishment and fun. Dreamers can while away hours in a rose-petal-scented bath, tired athletes may soak stressed muscles in a therapeutic bath, and kids can cavort in a bubble bath.

A superbly designed new book, "The Art of the Bath," by San Francisco talents Sara Slavin and Karl Petzke, will inspire even more ways to enjoy bathing.

It details the rich history of the bath - from Cleopatra's milk bath to Summer of Love Jell-O baths to cheerful country tubs in the great outdoors.

Best of all, there are recipes for cooling and soothing drinks to enjoy, along with ideas for hair rinses, baby baths even flea teas for dogs.

With its fine collection of poetry and romantic photography, this is a book to savor--where else?--in the bath.
