Barrett, Trevor
The Isle of Man snuggles cosily between the coastlines of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - yet is not part of the UK or the EU. Head of State is the Duke of Normandy - yet female. Crime rates are extremely low - yet use of a simple three-letter word in public is almost tantamount to treason. This book portrays the Isle of Man in a new light - a book to appeal not only to the people of this unique island nation but also to a far wider audience.168pp. N.B. Top edge of rear D/J creased.

Edited By Gustafson, Paula and Nisse & Gogarty, Amy
This volume features 21 essays and critical commentaries by acclaimed Canadian practitioners, educators and curators, demonstrating the range of critical thought about craft as presented in symposiums, exhibition catalogues and art journals. Over 40 full-colour photographs of works in craft media including fibre, ceramics, metal, wood and 'new materials' accompany the essays. The texts in this volume explore the conceptual, social and cultural significance of craft practice today, and describe new initiatives in conceptualising craft practices in contemporary life. Essays by prominent academics and theorists such as Sandra Alfoldy, Paul Mathieu, Arlene Oak, and Kirsty Robertson discuss craft in terms of political and social activism, gender theory, semiotics and aesthetics, analysing shifting boundaries between craft, fine art and design.Artists Mackenzie Frere, Murray Gibson and Ruth Scheuing discuss their own work, providing insight into the relationship between skill, technology, history and personal expression. The diversity of contemporary craft practice is well-represented in essays by Mireille Perron, Shannon Stratton, Glenn Allison and others, whose thoughtful analyses raise challenging questions about craft practice today. This volume substantiates academic advancement of craft curricula and provides an authoritative springboard for debate and discussion among craft practitioners, educators, curators and collectors.213pp.

Francis, Daniel
British Columbia's colourful story has been told many times, but until now no one has attempted to relate the chronicle specifically for young readers. From the gold rush to the Gumboot Navy and from 'bride ships' to WAC, Bennett, BC history comes alive in this highly illustrated and vivid account by award-winning writer and historian Daniel Francis. Starting with the story of BC's aboriginal people and their lives prior to the arrival of the Europeans, "Far West" recounts first contact with early explorers such as Captain James Cook and Captain George Vancouver and the changes the fur trade brought to the 'New World'. Francis then describes how BC was born, starting with the gold rush and Confederation eras, going through to modern times and speculating on BC's future. This title is richly illustrated with archival photos, colourful paintings, maps and original illustrations. 175pp.
