Baird,David M.
Autumn leaves dry in the sun, curling to make endless abstract patterns of curved surfaces and shadows. Or are they leaves? A closer look with Dr David M Baird reveals not leaves but layers of mud, which have shrunk into leaf-like shapes as they dried. Baird's amazing photographs show that intriguing patterns and textures are all around us. In "Beauty in the Rocks" the esteemed geologist, writer and poet takes readers on a photographic journey around the globe, finding beauty and form in settings as exotic as the Galapagos and as close to home as Yoho National Park. His intense, artistic images and accompanying text give mood and meaning to the changing earth and encourage readers to observe carefully the world around them, recognise what they see and understand how it came to be. From the hexagonal 'organ pipe' patterns in Northern Ireland's Giant's Causeway to the 'hoodoos' in Yoho National Park to the wrinkled surface skin of cooled liquid lava on James Island in the Galapagos, the wonders captured in this book will engage and enlighten anyone with an interest in the natural world. 144pp.

Sinha, Gayatri
K M Adimoolam's art resists easy categorisation. He brings to his work a genuine spirit of enquiry, and a continually rejuvenating wonder at the generative cosmic possibilities of art. He makes profoundly aesthetic choices, bringing to his abstract painting and apparently realistic drawing sheer, unambiguous artistic skills. Adimoolam is primarily optimistic; his paintings resonate with a pleasure in the sensuality of the medium of oil, its dexterity and movement, and its ability to translate emotion into colour. What all the works have in common is his preoccupation with presences and fields outside his immediate perception, and a graded move towards the ideal space of pure abstraction. This for Adimoolam is the vivid, magnetic other, the field of consciousness - energy or citsakti - one that is not personalised in any way, but which hints at the possibility of the deepest realisation. 104pp. N.B. Laminate to bottom edge of rear D/J slightly peeled.

Some fading to spine and covers. Corners slightly bumped. Damaged stamp to title page.
