Chief Inspector Maigret's brief May holiday in London serves up a tale of evil people planning wicked deeds:?they're definitely not the usual criminals he's used to dealing with at Police?Nationale headquarters in Paris!?Oh no, this lot is a very different kettle of fish: most of them are piranhas. The Eurostar has barely arrived at St.?Pancras before he's being followed.?Next he receives an invitation to an event that he would rather avoid, but is coerced into attending. Then he discovers that a woman he'd hoped never to see again is living nearby and that Scotland Yard expects him to interrogate her on their behalf. Then the first body turns up... Next take a Cambridge undergraduate, add a dodgy character named Slippery Sid and throw in a really dreadful creature, together with a large piece of garlic. Stir briskly, then finish with a crème caramel!?What will be the result??Why, another fine old mess, of course, that will prove the very devil of a job for Philippe Maigret to fix before his end of June deadline. Can he, and Scotland Yard, do it??Or will they need the help of a brave amateur? Like the first two books in this trilogy, Chief Inspector Maigret Visits London will appeal to children aged 12+.

Happiness is a Red Teapot

Happiness is a Red Teapot
Was: £12.99 Now: £10.02

For centuries, tea has held a valued place in both Eastern and Western cultures. From the ritual of a Japanese tea ceremony to the cozy informality of an English cuppa at the kitchen table, tea (whether green, black, white or herb) soothes, grounds and comforts us. It's no surprise that so many of us switch the kettle on at the first sign of trouble - keep calm and drink tea! In fact, that's how this book came about. After a particularly stressful week, editor Anouska Jones was sitting at home with her husband complaining about everything that had gone wrong. As he put their teapot and two mugs down on the table, her husband commented, "Cheer up! You can't be miserable when you've got a bright red teapot in front of you!" The very next morning, Anouska started researching quotes about tea and before long she had a collection of memorable quotations from rock stars (Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart), Buddhist monks (Thich Nat Hahn), politicians (Abraham Lincoln, William Gladstone), actors (Audrey Hepburn, Billy Connolly), adventurers (Bear Grylls) and more. It seems tea's appeal is truly universal! It's hoped that the resulting book of quotes and accompanying photographs brings you the same pleasure as a perfectly brewed cup of your own particular favorite.

Ancient Textiles Modern Science II

Ancient Textiles Modern Science II
Was: £35.00 Now: £25.70

Ancient Textiles Modern Science II follows the success of the first proceedings, published in 2013, that catalogued the Forum's formative years. This proceedings highlights the range of subjects and approaches, from improved forms of notation for nålbinding and terminology for non-woven fabric structures, to presentation and practical interpretation of new and unique discoveries from Lengberg Castle and of Roman leather underpants. The significance of unrealised assumptions and unappreciated historic decisions is shown through the discovery of weaving tablets unrecognised during their excavation and the effects of water supply on the outcome of dyeing in Pompeii. Practical investigations of historic resist dyeing, methods to selectively colour early Byzantine embroidery after its completion, and how the choice of metal in dyeing kettles influences dyeing outcomes make up the rest of this volume. The European Textile Forum provides a place where ideas can be exchanged and aims to give a good practical foundation for further research. The end result is an understanding of each aspect of historic textiles that is greater than the sum of its individual parts., The Forum continues to explore textile artefacts, tools, methods of production, recording notation and the historic and contemporary meaning of textiles.

Caroline Walker - Picture Window

Caroline Walker - Picture Window
£35.00

Celebrated for her beautiful, sometimes playful yet often challenging and complex paintings of contemporary women in diverse architectural settings, both interior and exterior, Caroline Walker's practice explores the myriad social, cultural, economic, racial and political factors that affect women's lives today. From the luxurious hotels and private homes typical of Los Angeles and Palm Springs to the temporary social housing of female asylum seekers arriving in Europe from Africa and Asia, from the nail bars of London to the private pools and nighttime parties of the European elite, Walker deftly broaches both everyday and more provocative subjects ranging from the pay gap to migrant workforces, the beauty industry to domestic roles, gender stereotypes to ageism. By addressing such themes and through her painterly virtuosity, Walker is rapidly establishing herself as one of the leading British painters of her generation. The publication features both a significant newly commissioned essay and an in-depth interview with the artist by art historian Marco Livingstone - a leading authority on contemporary art with a particular interest in Pop Art and figurative painting. Together, these two texts offer a comprehensive overview of the subjects, themes and approaches, both conceptually and in terms of technique, that have come to define Walker's oeuvre. Topics include historical inspiration and references ranging from nineteenth-century French painting to twentieth-century modernist architecture, Walker's carefully choreographed staging of photoshoots with actors, models and sitters in various locations around the world, and the role of photography, drawing and studies in the development of her major works. Through an ongoing dialogue with the artist spanning several years, Livingstone has become a key interlocutor for Walker's practice, offering readers an opportunity to really get behind the scenes and beneath the surface of her work. Another new text, by Andrew Nairne, director of Kettle's Yard, University of Cambridge, specifically addresses the body of work `Home' that was commissioned and first presented at Kettle's Yard in spring 2018. For this series, Walker worked with the charity Women for Refugee Women, exploring the lives of asylum-seeking women in temporary accommodation in London. Dr Rina Arya, a professor of visual culture at the University of Huddersfield, focusses in her text on Walker's paintings of nail bars - commercial, private spaces in the public domain in which the encounter between worker and client can be both depersonalising and strangely intimate. Continuing the publication's consideration of how Walker represents the complexities and realities of different women's lives in urban and suburban contexts today, a short yet illuminating text by Paris-based scholar and writer Dr. Lauren Elkin, author of `Flaneuse: Women Walk the City' (Chatto& Windus, 2016), offers an introduction to Walker's series of glimpsed scenes of women at work, whether in hair salons, restaurants or office buildings - the result of the artist's own record of walking the city in London. `Picture Window' is the most substantial and comprehensive publication to date on the work of London-based Scottish artist Caroline Walker (b. 1982, Dunfermline). A graduate of the Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art, London, her rise to the international stage since completing her studies in 2009 has involved solo exhibitions at Kettle's Yard, Cambridge; GRIMM, Amsterdam and New York; Anat Ebgi, Los Angeles; ProjectB, Milan; and Space K, Gwacheon, among others. Developed and designed by GRIMM, Amsterdam and New York, which has co-published the monograph with Anomie Publishing, UK, `Picture Window' is beautifully illustrated by around 170 images including paintings, studies, drawings and photographs, many of which are published here for the first time. The publication is being launched to coincide with a presentation of Walker's works at Frieze London in autumn 2018.

The Making of the English Working Class

The Making of the English Working Class
£20.00

Fifty years since first publication, E. P. Thompson's revolutionary account of working-class culture and ideals is published in Penguin Modern Classics, with a new introduction by historian Michael Kenny This classic and imaginative account of working-class society in its formative years, 1780 to 1832, revolutionized our understanding of English social history. E. P. Thompson shows how the working class took part in its own making and re-creates the whole-life experience of people who suffered loss of status and freedom, who underwent degradation, and who yet created a cultured and political consciousness of great vitality. Reviews: 'A dazzling vindication of the lives and aspirations of the then - and now once again - neglected culture of working-class England' Martin Kettle, Observer 'Superbly readable . . . a moving account of the culture of the self-taught in an age of social and intellectual deprivation' Asa Briggs, Financial Times 'Thompson's work combines passion and intellect, the gifts of the poet, the narrator and the analyst' E. J. Hobsbawm, Independent 'An event not merely in the writing of English history but in the politics of our century' Michael Foot, Times Literary Supplement 'The greatest of our socialist historians' Terry Eagleton, New Statesman About the author: E. P. Thompson was born in 1924 and read history at Corpus Christi, Cambridge, graduating in 1946. An academic, writer and acclaimed historian, his first major work was a biography of William Morris. The Making of the English Working Class was instantly recognized as a classic on its publication in 1963 and secured his position as one of the leading social historians of his time. Thompson was also an active campaigner and key figure in the ending of the Cold War. He died in 1993, survived by his wife and two sons.

The Ways of War (Classic Reprint)

The Ways of War (Classic Reprint)
£9.59

Excerpt from The Ways of War Perhaps the order of the chapters in the present book requires a word of explanation. They have a natural sequence as the confessions of an Irish man of letters as to why he felt called upon to offer up his life in the war for the freedom of the world. Kettle was one of the most brilliant figures both in the Young Ireland and the Young Europe of his time. The opening chapters reveal him as a Nationalist concerned about the liberty not only of Ireland - though he never for a moment forgot that - but of every nation, small and great. He hoped to make these chapters part of a separate book, expounding the Irish attitude to the war; but unfortunately, as one must think, the War Office would not permit an Irish officer to put his name to a work of the kind. After the chapters describing the inevitable sympathy of an Irishman with Serbia and Belgium - little nations attacked by two Imperial bullies - comes an account of the tragic scenes Kettle himself witnessed in Belgium, where he served as a war=correspondent in the early days of the war.

Blue Heart

Blue Heart
Was: £9.99 Now: £7.45

Two exhilarating and teasingly entertaining one act plays from one of the UK's leading playwrights. Heart's Desire sees a family awaiting their daughter's return from Australia, though in a series of alternative scenarios, the play collapses as it keeps veering off in unexpected and ridiculous directions. Blue Kettle tells the story of conman Derek and the five women he misleads into believing he is their biological son. Try as he might, Derek's plans are scuppered as the play is invaded by a virus. In Caryl Churchill's ever inventive style, the two plays in Blue Heart pull apart language and structure in a way that is theatrically remarkable and fast paced, in a stirring yet truthful exploration of family and relationships. This edition was published alongside the first major revival of Blue Heart, nearly twenty years after its Royal Court premiere, in a co production by the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, and Tobacco Factory Theatres, Bristol, in 2016.

White Grizzly Bear's Legacy

White Grizzly Bear's Legacy
Was: £15.99 Now: £13.92

I walked across the highway and stood on the bank overlooking Lake Roosevelt. My attention was directed to the area where Kettle Falls once flowed. As I stood there the wind came. As I listened I imagined that it talked to me. It seemed that it was telling me of how things once were. I began to think of friends and relatives who were no longer living. They began to appear before me, perched on the large rocks, fishing for the great salmon. In his distinctive voice, Lawney Reyes, grandson of Pic Ah Kelowna or White Grizzly Bear of the Sin Aikst, relates the history of his family and his people. The Sin Aikst are now known as the Lakes tribe, absorbed into the Colville Confederated Tribes of eastern Washington. And where Kettle Falls once flowed and the Sin Aikst once fished are places that exist now only in memory, flooded when the Grand Coulee Dam was completed in 1942. Reyes uses personal and family history to explore the larger forces that have confronted all Native Americans: displacement, acculturation, and the potent force of self-renewal. The son of a Filipino immigrant and a mother who traced her ancestry to the earliest known leaders of the Sin Aikst, Reyes paints a vivid picture of his early life in the Indian village of Inchelium, destroyed by the building of the dam. Reyes describes the loss of homeland and traditional ways of life, the scarcities that followed, and the experiences of a court-ordered Indian boarding school in Oregon. These well-known facts of loss and injustice take on a compelling dimension in Reyes's blend of history and autobiography, brought to life by the vivid images and personalities he describes. Despite the loss of heritage beneath the waters of the Columbia River and the flood of white acculturation, Reyes and his younger brother, the late Native American leader Bernie Whitebear, were able to fashion rich lives in a changed world, lives that honor the past while engaging with the present.

The Twinings in Three Centuries

The Twinings in Three Centuries
£9.59

Excerpt from The Twinings in Three Centuries: The Annals of a Great London Tea House, 1710-1910, With Portraits and Illustrations It is in the eternal fitness of things that the bicentenary of the birth of the great lexicographer who confessed himself a "hardened, shameless tea drinker, whose kettle had scarcely time to cool," should be almost immediately followed by the two-hundredth anniversary of Thomas Twining's transformation of "Tom's" Coffee House (the trysting place of Pope, Akenside and Birch) into an emporium for the sale and consumption of what was still timidly spoken of as "the new China herb." That excellent, and by all Physicians approved, China drink called by the Chineans 'Tscha, by other nations 'Tay' alias Tee, had been sold at the Sultane s-Head Coffee House near the Royal Exchange in the year succeeding the Restoration; Edmund Waller, the courtier-poet, had intermingled his praises of Catherine of Braganza (the best of queens) with that of Tea( the best of herbes), and Samuel Pepys had greatly commended the China drink which he had never before tasted; but at the beginning of Queen Annes reign, the dawn of what Lord Tennyson describes as "The teacup times of hood and hoop And when the patch was worn," the coffee-houses and the tea-houses of the metropolis were still in the proportion of something like three thousand to three.
