Secret Pinner
Pinner is now part of Greater London, but for most of its history it was an agricultural backwater, though one which experienced great changes. Pinner's past has many fascinating aspects. In the Middle Ages it was part of the Archbishop of Canterbury's huge manor of Harrow, and Headstone Manor and Pinner Park Farm preserve relics from this time. By the early nineteenth century Pinner had its own workhouse, toll gate and a stagecoach service to London. The railways brought prosperous Victorian and Edwardian commuters, whose families made Pinner their rural idyll. As others followed, the area was transformed with new stations, shopping centres and residential areas. Famous people associated with Pinner include Mrs Beeton and names associated with the arts and comedy such as William Heath Robinson and Ronnie Barker. Secret Pinner explores lesser-known episodes in Pinner's history including its first policemen, suffragettes and the family of agricultural labourers who gave their name to Rayners Lane. With tales of remarkable people, unusual events and tucked-away historical buildings, it will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this London suburb.

Barrow-in-Furness has a proud and distinctive identity, embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped this Cumbrian town.

From the Perpendicular-style Furness Abbey to the Gothic Town Hall, and from the Beaux Arts Public Library to newer buildings that have attracted disdain from local residents, this study celebrates Barrow's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local historian Gill Jepson guides the reader on a tour of the town's finest old buildings and modern architectural developments.

An Invitation to Dream: A Bedtime Companion to Fill Your Sleep with Wonder
Many books put you to sleep without meaning to. But here is a book specially created to send the reader on a long, restful voyage to slumberland and inspire beautiful and creative dreams along the way. It is a soothing bedtime companion, a portal that takes you from the busyness and distraction of the day into an ocean of calm. Words from poets and writers set the mind on a path of discovery and reflection and a celebration of dreams and dreaming: We all have forests on our minds. Forests unexplored, unending. Each one of us gets lost in the forest, every night, alone. - Ursula K. Le Guin. Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight. - Oscar Wilde. `If we walk far enough,' says Dorothy, `we shall sometime come to someplace.' - L. Frank Baum. Paired with them are lush, romantic images - forests at dusk, castles at the end of a winding road, lanterns swaying in the evening breeze, moonlight on new-fallen snow. The combined effect is like a mandala, something that pulls you in, stills thoughts, inspires mindfulness and dreaming. The book is organised into thematic sections, almost like a menu. When you close your eyes, what do you want to discover? New Worlds, Magic, Love, Mystery,or Peace? Open the book to any page, and may your dreams come true.

Fashionable Folkestone: The Golden Age of a Kent Seaside Resort
Over the course of the nineteenth century Folkestone was transformed from a little fishing village into a popular seaside resort, complete with large hotels to accommodate its many wealthy visitors, a theatre, bathing establishment and pleasure pier. `Fashionable Folkestone', as it became known, thrived during the golden years of the second half of the nineteenth century but its popularity with the rich and famous came to an end with the advent of the First World War, when it experienced a huge influx of refugees and its harbour became a prime military embarkation point. In this fascinating collection of images featuring the town's many grand hotels, Victoria Pier, the Leas, seafront attractions and entertainments, switchback railway and horse tramway from Sandgate to Hythe, local author and historian Martin Easdown illustrates the glory days of this famous old seaside town.

Now That's What I Call Preston
The sixties, seventies and eighties were decades of great change in Preston. This period saw major city centre redevelopment projects that dramatically affected its character. People's shopping habits began to change as supermarkets took over from traditional stores and corner shops. Leisure habits were changing too, and Preston saw major town centre redevelopments. Transport also evolved. A move away from the railway put a greater strain on the roads and the major new road schemes only compounded the changing face of this Lancashire town, which became a city in 2002. These changes in people's lifestyles were keenly felt in Preston. Local author and historian Keith Johnson has captured them all in this fascinating portrayal of how Preston and its people changed over the course of these most nostalgic decades.

My Himalaya: 40 Years Among Buddhists
The work of Olivier Foellmi exudes authenticity and spirituality. For more than 40 years, the prize-winning photographer has documented the landscape and peoples of the Himalayas, a region he first got to know on a hiking trip in the 1980s. Captivated by Tibetan culture, people, and their harmonious coexistence with nature, Foellmi returned to the mountain region on numerous occasions-at times as a mountain guide, at others to live and learn from spiritual leaders in a Buddhist temple. The Himalayas became his destiny, and he became one of the most sensitive and insightful observers of life in Tibet. This rich photo book of the Himalayas is at once a remarkable retrospective and an homage to the Tibetan culture and spirituality which has so defined and characterized Foellmi's life and work. Page after page reveals photographs of extraordinary emotion, color, tradition, and beauty, alongside inspiring anecdotes and stories from the photographer. My Himalaya is an enriching and enlightening book for anyone looking toward a more mindful way of life, as well as for all those interested in photography, trekking, landscape, and Buddhism.

Hampshire's Military Heritage
Hampshire's position on the south coast of England has meant that it has played a key role in this country's military history for centuries. Its military heritage is as diverse as any other county in Britain. In this book author Dean Hollands focuses on the significant people, places and events associated with the military history of Hampshire, from the early invaders and occupiers of Iron Age and Roman Britain to the present day. Iron Age hill forts on the chalk uplands of Hampshire can be seen, and the Roman fort at Portchester is the best preserved in northern Europe. These fortifications continued through the Norman Conquest, Henry VIII's castles, Napoleonic era defences and into the two world wars. Southampton and Portsmouth experienced waves of invaders over the centuries, but were also the home of the Navy and the departure point for British military expeditions overseas, not least for D-Day in the Second World War. Aldershot is famous as the home of the British Army and Farnborough's air show has demonstrated its importance as the centre of British military aviation research since the 1940s. Hampshire's Military Heritage looks at the military history of this county on land, by air and at sea. All those wishing to know more about the military legacy of Hampshire will find this book fascinating.

Saltdean From Old Photographs
The coastal suburb of Saltdean, which straddles the boundary between East Sussex and the city of Brighton and Hove, is best known for its art deco lido, the former Ocean Hotel and the various interesting styles and designs of buildings of the interwar era in particular. The residential area gradually developed on open farmland during that period, while the popularity of the beaches and resort amenities was boosted by the completion, in the mid-1930s, of the Undercliff Walk extending from the East Brighton starting point of Black Rock. In this book author Douglas d'Enno traces the changing face of pictorial Saltdean over the course of its intriguing history, starting with a survey of archaeological finds, then of the foreshore and associated hazards and of early activities on the downland on which the community would gradually be built. Alongside the development of Saltdean as a leisure resort, modern housing increasingly drew in new residents before the Second World War, including a number of prominent figures. Its development was halted during the war but resumed in the 1950s and 1960s as the infrastructure of schools, shops and churches was created for the community. Following its use for war purposes, the Ocean Hotel remained virtually unused until 1953 when Billy Butlin dramatically restored its popularity. For its part, the lido lay derelict from 1945 until 1964, when it reopened to huge acclaim from locals and visitors. This fascinating collection of images will be of interest to those who know Saltdean and this corner of the Sussex coast east of Brighton, and equally to those unfamiliar with them.

John Henry Spree's Nottinghamshire
The city of Nottingham has long been one of Britain's most important cities. As Nottinghamshire grew in prosperity during the Middle Ages the city became the heart of a prosperous local centre of trade and business. Later, during the Industrial Revolution parts of the county were transformed by the new industries and the city played an important role in the textile industry as an internationally renowned lace-manufacturing area. Today, Nottingham is a thriving commercial city in the East Midlands, and the area attracts numerous visitors for its modern amenities as well as its historical and cultural heritage. In this fascinating collection of images from around the end of the Edwardian era to the start of the 1930s, author Alan Spree has collected the work of one photographer, John Henry Spree, who produced commercial postcards of Nottingham and the surrounding area of Nottinghamshire. These photographs show many of the well-known landmarks of Nottingham and surrounding towns and villages but also how much these places and the life of their inhabitants have changed in the last century. John Henry Spree's Nottinghamshire provides something for everyone, be they long-time residents or first-time visitors.

Cambridge Women and the Struggle for the Vote
Cambridge was at the forefront of the struggle for women to get the right to vote in Britain a century ago. Millicent Fawcett, who later became the national leader of the non-militant Suffragists and arguably one of the most influential women in Britain of the last 100 years, lived in Cambridge and founded the Cambridge Women's Suffrage Association, and leading militant suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst also gave talks at riotous meetings in the city. Author Sue Slack has been researching the archives in Cambridge to write this account of the role that Cambridge women played in the struggle for votes for women from the late nineteenth century to the first Act of Parliament in 1918 that granted women over the age of thirty the right to the vote and the Act of 1928 that gave women equal voting rights to men. Alongside the famous names are accounts of the many other roles that women of Cambridge took up in the fight for the right to vote. Many were involved in work during the First World War, including the founder of the Save the Children Fund; others were Pacifists. Some joined the International Women's Suffrage League. Many led local welfare and education reform after the war or founded local groups such as the WI or Girl Guides, and others went on to become the first women MPs, barristers, magistrates and surgeons in the country. This fascinating survey of Cambridge's role at the heart of the women's suffrage movement includes contemporary photographs and newspaper stories that are not widely known today.

Joan Liftin: Water for Tears
Joan Liftin's third monograph, Water for Tears , is a lyrical memoir. The book is about family and trips, about running away and coming back, short texts and photographs about pleasure in the newness of everyday life. There are layered images from everywhere, like the blind woman feeling her way by a timeworn splattered wall in Mexico or the teenage boys posing with a head of Reagan in the Soviet Union in 1988, while the darkest ones are from the American South's brutality during the struggle of the Civil Rights Movement. Her observations are mysterious, sensuous and often very funny. At the heart of the book is a tender farewell to her life with Charlie, Magnum photographer Charles Harbutt. There are no captions or dates, except in the back of the book, but you know where you are - you are with Joan.

The installation encourages visitors to pick their favorite subjects out of a total of several hundreds of displayed photographs, rearrange them, name their sequences, and print them in the form of a fanfold. The publication analyzes the 30 000 sequences selected by the public. A detailed demonstration of the applied algorithms helps us to understand the connection between the photographs, the number of times they were chosen by an individual visitor, and how the visitors named their personal selection of images. The book traces the creative processes and the interaction of the visitors with the material of the installation as a work of art highly dependent on the involvement of the audience. Essays by curators and art historians discuss the subject on a theoretical level while examining the aspects of participation and emancipation as well as the question of the autonomy of images.

Intimate, never-before-published photographs taken just before Kate Moss's rise to fame, in one elegant volume This gorgeously produced book features intimate, never-before-published portraits of a young and undiscovered Kate Moss, taken in the early 1990s by her then-boyfriend, Italian photographer Mario Sorrenti.

Sumptuously reproduced in tritone and presented in a cloth-covered clamshell box, Kate is a stunning photographic portfolio of one of contemporary culture's most iconic figures. It includes tipped-on images on the book and clamshell box's covers, plus an introductory essay by Sorrenti, which puts the work in its uniquely personal context. This book, which celebrates the dawn of two legendary careers, and the start of the highly influential aesthetic of 1990s fashion photography, is a must-have for Kate Moss's fans, for fashion devotees, and for lovers of traditional portraiture and fashion photography.

Dublin Pubs
Dublin has had a long association with its pubs. The city grew rapidly in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, becoming a major port for trade around the world, and the city boasted a wealth of taverns, inns, alehouses and public houses. An important part of the city's prosperity was also the Guinness brewery, founded in Dublin in 1759 and becoming a major employer. Many drinking establishments have survived from these days and have stories to tell, often involving historical figures or even fictional characters. In Dublin Pubs, author Pat Dargan takes the reader on a fascinating journey through some of Dublin's most interesting, oldest or most famous watering holes. Many of the pubs have retained features and traditions of previous ages, and some are regarded as architectural gems. Pat reveals the variety of Dublin's pubs today and tells of the many characters that have frequented or run the public houses over the years, for which Dublin is justly renowned.
