A very nice copy, clean, tightly bound, light age tanning to page edges, feint remains of erased inscription to rear endpaper, very light edgewear to jacket. Other Colours is a collection of immediate relevance and timeless value, ranging from lyrical autobiography to criticism of literature and culture, from humour to political analysis, from delicate evocations of his friendship with his daughter Ruya to provocative discussions of Eastern and Western art. It also covers Pamuk's recent, high profile, court case. My Father's Suitcase, Pamuk's 2006 Nobel Lecture, a brilliant illumination of what it means to be a writer, completes the selection from the figure who is now without doubt one of international literature's most eminent and popular figures. 448 pages.

A firmly bound copy with clean bright pages; unclipped jacket, 1mm nick at spine end of rear lower edge, very slight rubbing to corners, small shallow indent on front adjacent to spine. Saturated with sympathy and sense of place, the book charts a boy's journey into manhood and Turkey's into irreversible change. But it is above all a book of ideas. Pamuk's work promotes the fact that we should always interrogate the past but never deny or bury it. History - personal, imagined, actual - reminds us to remember, to think better... This book sings with the power of diverse remembrance. (Financial Times) 272 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9780571330294. Inventory No: dscf8965. . 9780571330294

Freedom Press, 2008. First Edition. Softcover. Fine Condition. A few slight cover markings, contents are clean bright and unmarked. Almost as new. From poverty and a Yorkshire orphanage, Herbert Read went on to become the most significant cultural critic to come out of England in the twentieth century. In this book sixteen of the world's leading writers on modernist cultural history look at Read's work again, focusing on his anarchist political beliefs, his work on art and literature, and his own creative writings. They place him in the context of twentieth century cultural life, and offer startling explanations for his neglect by later writers on modernism. The book is very well illustrated in full colour, with images of works by many of the artists Read championed. 238 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Art & Design; ISBN/EAN: 9781904491088.

Lark Books, 2000. Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine. A nice clean bright copy, unmarked internally, slight rubbing to jacket corners. Sashiko is traditional blue-and-white Japanese quilting. Usually hand-stitched in white thread on indigo-dyed textiles, sashiko designs range from simple geometrics to elaborate florals. This book offers 20 projects which bypass the time-consuming process of stitching the motifs by hand. The iron-on, colour-coded patterns allow the modern sewer to machine-stitch the patterns in long, unbroken lines in a fraction of the time. The projects illustrate sashiko's decorative possibilities - on clothing (adornments on collars, pockets and handbags) and home decoration items (duvet covers, sheets and pillowcases) and the stitch directory provides over 100 colour-coded designs for many uses, some are centuries old, others are the author's creations. 144 pages.
