    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: 15 Tangram Book & Puzzle 460 Puzzles of Ancient Chinese Wisdom
    Author: YEGENG TONG

    This beautiful tangram kit includes the original fifteen-piece set along with a beautifully illustrated instruction guide.

    The tangram has a very long history. In the Qing Dynasty, there was a puzzle game whose idea derived from the Banquet Table Diagrams (Yanji Tu) of the Song Dynasty and Butterfly Table Diagrams (Dieji Tu) of the Ming Dynasty, capturing the wisdom of the ancients. From literati to businessmen, even the royal family, they all fell in love with this brain game, also known as the "Fifteen-Piece Tangram Puzzle."

    As the name suggests, the fifteen-piece tangram puzzle consists of fifteen pieces. They are different from the regular seven-piece tangram puzzle concerning shapes and number of pieces. The regular seven-piece tangram puzzle is made up of five triangles, one square, and one parallelogram. The fifteen-piece tangram puzzle is also dissected from a square but composed of more shapes: four triangles, two trapezoids, one parallelogram, two L-shapes, two semi-circles, and four arch-shapes. A more extensive range of shapes and pieces allows more flexibility and creates more vivid configurations such as animals, birds, flowers, fruits, figures, objects, or even landscapes. Every single puzzle in this tangram book is full of imagination, supplemented with poems and phrases, which can both be a feast to the eye and delightful experience for your mind.

    Did you have a difficult time to start in the beginning? Don't worry The first chapter in this book illustrates various geometries that can be formed by the fifteen pieces. After learning the basics, you can then go into the advanced chapters to get the key to all the puzzles.

    Title: Almost Lost Arts Traditional Crafts & the Artisans Keeping Them Alive

    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.

    ISBN: 9780241426456
    Title: Anatomy for the Artist

    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: Day at the Zoo: My Big Wimmelbook

    "Abounding with humor and detail, this brain-building excursion to an illustrated zoo would be a great rainy-day substitute for a real one."--The Wall Street Journal

    In these one-of-a-kind picture books, every page is bursting with life--and tons to discover

    Children as young as two have a blast pointing out recognizable things--a blue tricycle, a hungry dog, a piggyback ride--while older kids can follow the star characters from page to page, telling their stories along the way.

    How? Wimmelbooks are virtually instruction-free, inviting kids to make their own way through the busy Wimmelworld they encounter, and to craft their own stories. First, you're introduced to a unique cast of characters who are hidden in plain sight on the pages that follow. As you seek them out, each character's storyline unfolds, but it's up to kids to interpret the scenes and create stories they think fit. It's hours upon hours of fun--and an effortless introduction to literacy to boot.

    So welcome to Wimmelzoo From the wildcat enclosure to the aviary to the monkey house, get ready to explore an array of animal exhibits and spot the characters there to enjoy them in My Big Wimmelbook--A Day at the Zoo.
    Wimmelbooks originated in Germany decades ago and have become a worldwide sensation with children (and adults ) everywhere. My Big Wimmelbooks is the first-ever Wimmelbook series to feature Wimmelbooks as Wimmelbooks in English.
