    The illustrated Slow Tech manual will interest historians and re-enactors, parents managing their children's screen time, and young adults looking for mindful and practical escapes from the digital age.

    Featuring topics such as building bread ovens, making clay pots in a bonfire, felling and processing trees, cooking on open fires, blacksmithing, beer making, wattle and daubing, this book is a combination of the dangerous book for boys and a practical manual of experimental archaeology and historical research. Highly readable and hugely practical, the book is either armchair reading or a valuable guide to getting your hands dirty and creating something useful as you discover the art of slow technology. Light a fire without matches and cook a meal on it. Weave a basket, build a bread oven in your back garden and brew your own beer. Go camping in the wild, build a shelter, catch fish without a rod, and teach your kids how to knap flint. Whether you decide to try to make your own forge in the garden, carve a wooden spoon, build a dry-stone wall, or process your own salt, you will be reconnecting with your own practical abilities and creative impulses.

    Title: Almost Lost Arts Traditional Crafts & the Artisans Keeping Them Alive
    Author: FREIDENRICH EMILY; KHANDEKAR NARAYAN (COMPILED BY)

    Since the Industrial Revolution, humans have been mechanising and digitising processes previously done by hand. But craftsmanship isn't lost to the footnotes of history. Meet the makers, fixers, and collectors dedicated to preserving traditional handicrafts. Brittany Nicole Cox repairs antique clocks; Anita Rodríguez and Joanna Keane Lopez build and preserve traditional adobe structures; Simon Vernon roves the British countryside drawing maps by hand; Lee Eun Bum maintains a ceramic tradition from tenth-century Korea.

    Almost Lost Arts& pays tribute to these artisans, celebrating human ingenuity and tactile beauty. Twenty in-depth profiles& and stunning full-colour photography transport the reader to workshops across the globe, from Kyoto to Oaxaca, and from Milan to Tennessee. Two essays - by a calligraphy expert and the curator of Harvard's Forbes Pigment Library, respectively - explore the experience of engaging deeply with tradition. The book is lovingly curated by Emily Freidenrich and features a deluxe three-piece case with foil stamping.

    Title: Anatomy for the Artist
    Author: SIMBLET SARAH

    Unlock your inner artist and learn how to draw the human body in this beautifully illustrated art book by celebrated artist and teacher Sarah Simblet.

    In Anatomy for the Artist, Sarah reveals the extraordinary structure of the human
    body. Combining specially-commissioned photographs of models with historical
    and contemporary works of art and her own dynamic life drawing, she leads us inside the human body to map its skeleton, muscle groups, and body systems. Detailed line drawings superimposed over photographs reveal the links between what the body looks like and its internal construction. Six drawing classes show how to observe different parts of the body - from top to toe - and give expert guidance on how to draw them. Inspirational master classes on famous works, ranging from a Michelangelo study to a Degas painting, show how artists have depicted the human body over the centuries. Each master class includes a photograph of a model holding the same pose as in the painting, to highlight details of anatomy and show how the artist has interpreted them.

    Understanding anatomy is the key to drawing the human body successfully. As well as being the perfect reference, Anatomy for the Artist will inspire you to find a model, reach for your pencil, and start drawing.

    Title: Contemporary Ceramic Art
    Author: VANNIER CHARLOTTE

    A companion volume to Unravelled and Threads, featuring the work of ninety artists at the forefront of contemporary ceramic art.

    No longer considered merely decorative, ceramic art has broken free from the dusty display cases to which it was once relegated and is now taking centre stage in contemporary galleries.

    Although often integrating traditional modelling, firing and glazing techniques into their output, the 90 artists featured here invite us to look at ceramics in a different way. Whether creating monumental installations or intricate miniatures, imaginary beasts or life-size human figures, they subtly blur the borders between art and craft, sometimes conceiving witty or unnerving twists on traditional ceramic forms, sometimes using cutting-edge technology, conceptual thinking and new platforms to push the boundaries of clay and broaden its appeal.

    Packed with works that are questioning and provocative, disturbing and seductive, this is an exciting overview of a booming field.

    Author: THARP TWYLA

    What makes someone creative? How does someone face the empty page, the empty stage and making something where nothing existed before? Not just a dilemma for the artist, it is something everyone faces everyday. What will I cook that isn't boring? How can I make that memo persuasive? What sales pitch will increase the order, get me the job, lock in that bonus? These too, are creative acts, and they all share a common need: proper preparation. For Twyla Tharp, creativity is no mystery; it's the product of hard work and preparation, of knowing one's aims and one's subject, of learning from approaches taken in the past. It's a process undertaken every day. It's a habit. The Creative Habit is not merely a look inside the mind of a remarkable woman with remarkable skills, but a programmatic, inspiring, encouraging guide to help each of us achieve our fullest creative potential.

Created for those who have never held a needle before, Walker's exciting beginner's book introduces the basics with plenty of step-by-step photos; she then rolls out new techniques as you need them, so you're never overloaded with information. Most of the projects--including a phone cozy, turtle coaster, cup warmer, tiger scarf, bottle carrier, bobble hat, and lion toy--use easy-to-handle super-chunky yarn, which lets you see your stitches effortlessly and your project to grow quickly. You could even finish some in just one evening And unlike other knitting books, First Time Knits has links to accessible online video tutorials as well as images of other novice knitters working on the same project as you. They tell you their knitting stories and compare their finished knits with you, helping you to identify common mistakes, why they've made them, and how to fix them.

    Title: Golden Fleece: A Journey Through Britain's Knitted History
    Author: RUTTER ESTHER

    Over the course of a year, Esther Rutter - who grew up on a sheep farm in Suffolk, and learned to spin, weave and knit as a child - travels the length of the British Isles, to tell the story of wool's long history here. She unearths fascinating histories of communities whose lives were shaped by wool, from the mill workers of the Border countries, to the English market towns built on profits of the wool trade, and the Highland communities cleared for sheep farming; and finds tradition and innovation intermingling in today's knitwear industries. Along the way, she explores wool's rich culture by knitting and crafting culturally significant garments from our history - among them gloves, a scarf, a baby blanket, socks and a fisherman's jumper - reminding us of the value of craft and our intimate relationship with wool. This Golden Fleece is at once a meditation on the craft and history of knitting, and a fascinating exploration of wool's influence on our landscape, history and culture.

Alanna Okun is an expert knitter and oï¬eers very accessible instructions: Her idea of starting with a hat rather than a long scarf is sure to make this book easy for even the wariest of beginners.
