I personally own two of the Paintings featured within this Volume. I have another copy. Exhibition held at Collect Art, 29 The Cross, Lymm, Cheshire WA4 2BP on 27th June 2014. Invitation Card loosely laid in. p.[viii], unnumbered pages, informative text throughout, colour illustrations of all paintings at the exhibition, [ 47p illustration, Biography to rear. The exhibition was a complete sell out, further enhancing David’s growing reputation as a leading light in the art world. Gallery owner Martin heaps said: David’s work is in great demand; the evening was a lovely way to gather together those who already admire and collect his work with new collectors. It’s always a wonderful occasion when you can introduce an artist to art lovers and we all thoroughly enjoy ourselves! Born in 1972 in Wiltshire, David Farren now lives and works at his home in Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire. Best known for his cityscapes, David uses expressive brushwork and colour to represent the energy and movement of the urban landscape, providing a snapshot of everyday life. His aim is to capture the ambience and individuality of cities including New York, Manchester, Edinburgh and Paris. Landscapes occasionally emerge as a chosen subject matter, inspired by the nearby Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, as well as from his travels abroad. David paints in oil and acrylic, enjoying the immediacy and versatility of both mediums, appropriate for his direct, expressive style of painting. He is fascinated by the changing light within his urban scenes and uses colour to portray its effects on steel, glass and rain-washed streets. David has exhibited widely in galleries across the U.K and his paintings can be found in collections across Europe and America [ Location : BR1]. First Edition. Hard Cover. As New. Landscape.

Harris's guide to churches and cathedrals : discovering the unique and unusual in over 500 churches and cathedrals

By Harris, Brian L.

Haydock, St Helens: The Book People Ltd, 2006. xxix, 481 p. : ill. (some col.), map ; 23 cm. Includes bibliographical references (p. 465-466) and index. The unique, the unusual, the rare - these are the features that form the criteria for selection in Brian Harris's wonderful guide to churches and cathedrals. Here is a man who, in the style of Pevsner, has travelled the length and breadth of England and Wales in his quest for the most fascinating churches and cathedrals, recording his visits in minute detail and creating a marvellous treasury of facts about our religious heritage. Each church comes with a list of key must-see features - whether it be the particularly beautiful fan-vaulted cloisters of Gloucester Cathedral, the tombstone carved by Eric Gill in the graveyard of St Mary and St Lawrence in Great Waltham, Essex, or the glowing great East window in the choir at York Minster, made of the largest single area of medieval stained glass in the world. Alongside the gazetteer to 500 churches come amazing stories about every aspect of church architecture from bells and mazes, to maidens' garlands and stained glass sundials, vamping horns and wooden effigies. Fully illustrated throughout, this book will become a standard work of reference for anyone who loves visiting churches and wants to know more. Review: "Brian Harris...is a guide, a mentor, a leader, an opener of doors and eyes. He takes us through some of the most moving places in our land, and he does so with grace and wisdom." Chris Smith, Former Culture Secretary. [ Location : BR1] . Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Smoke : a global history of smoking

Smoke : a global history of smoking

By Sander L. Gilman and Zhou Xun. [ Edited By ]

London: Reaktion Books, 2004. The First UK edition: Beautiful and informative book. The culture of smoking around the world is examined thoroughly in this illustrated volume. The contributors explore the history of smoking and its impact on health, gender, sexuality, art and literature. The study is not confined to tobacco and examines the use of other drugs like cocaine, hashish and opium. Human beings have always smoked, and they probably always will. Every culture in recorded history has smoked something, whether as a cure or for pleasure, whether as part of a ritual or as an aspect of popular culture. It is curious, then, that no history of smoking has been written based on the assumption that smoking - in all of its forms and products - is a cultural phenomenon common to all human societies. Smoke: A Global History of Smoking examines the culture of smoking in different traditions and locations around the world. From opium dens in Victorian England to tobacco in Edo period Japan, and from ganja and cocaine to Havana cigars, Smoke encompasses the subject as no book has before. Based in cultural history, it employs a large number of images as part of its evidence: around 300 illustrations document smoking and smokers of many substances including tobacco, scented cigarettes, marijuana, opium and cocaine. The various essays examine the changing role of smoking in high and popular culture, ranging from images used in advertising to the legal and moral critiques of smoking, and from opera to the internet. Smoke will appeal to all those who smoke, all those who used to smoke, and all those who have tried, and failed, to give it up. Review: This ... fascinating book has opened my eyes... -- Beryl Bainbridge The Times As with the best histories Smoke paints a vivid picture of times past into which smoking itself is just a lure. Glasgow Herald Smoke has many splendid and absorbing illustrations - pictures on nearly every page that range from smoking film stars, early advertising posters and ornate carved pipes, to beautiful full-colour reproductions of Western and Oriental art Sunday Telegraph There is ... an undeniable pleasure to be taken in Smoke's copious visual material -- Jonathan Meades London Evening Standard A remarkable collection of over 30 essays ... it is beautifully produced and profusely illustrated ... It is a real pleasure to recommend a book of true anthropological range and seriousness, conjuring, like the perfect smoke ring, the history of a universal human practice at a time when the issues raised ... are at the forefront of current world-wide debates on health policy and social safety. British Medical Journal. 408 p. : ill., ports. ; 25 cm. Includes bibliographical references (p. 365-393) and index. Sander L. Gilman is Distinguished Professor of the Liberal Arts and Medicine at the University of Illinois, Chicago, USA. A cultural and literary historian, he is the author or editor of over sixty books, including Health and Illness: Images of Difference (Reaktion Books, 1996), and Franz Kafka (Reaktion Books, 2005). Zhou Xun is ESRC Research Fellow in the History Department at SOAS, University of London, and the author of Chinese Perceptions of the 'Jews' and Judaism: A History of the Youtai (2000) [ Location : Br4/3 ].
