3. A Theory of Craft Function and Aesthetic Expression (EasyRead Large Edition) - Howard Risatti

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 41.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

What is craft? How is it different from fine art or design? In A Theory of Craft, Howard Risatti examines these issues by comparing handmade ceramics, glass, metalwork, weaving, and furniture to painting, sculpture, photography, and machine-made design from Bauhaus to the Memphis Group. He describes craft's unique qualities as functionality combined with an ability to express human values that transcend temporal, spatial, and social boundaries. Modern design today has taken over from craft the making of functional objects of daily use by employing machines to do work once done by hand. Understanding the aesthetic and social implications of this transformation forces us to see craft as well as design and fine art in a new perspective, Risatti argues. Without a way of understanding and valuing craft on its own terms, the field languishes aesthetically, being judged by fine art criteria that automatically deny art status to craft objects. Craft must articulate a role for itself in contemporary society, says Risatti; otherwise it will be absorbed by fine art or design and its singular approach to understanding the world will be lost. A Theory of Craft is a signal contribution to establishing a craft theory that recognizes, defines, and celebrates the unique blend of function and human aesthetic values embodied in the craft object.

6. An American Demon A Memoir (Large Print 16pt) - Jack Grisham

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

An American Demon is Jack Grisham's story of depravity and redemption, terror and spiritual deliverance. While Grisham is best known as the raucous and provocative front man of the pioneer hardcore punk band TSOL (True Sounds of Liberty), his writing and true life experiences are physically and psychologically more complex, unsettling, and violent than those of Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk.
Eloquently disregarding the prefabricated formulas of the drunk - to - sober, bad - to - good tale, this is an entirely new kind of life lesson: summoned through both God and demons, while settling within eighties hardcore punk culture and its radical - to - the - core (and most assuredly non - evangelical) parables, Grisham leads us, cleverly, gorgeously, between temporal violence and bigger - picture spirituality toward something very much like a path to salvation and enlightenment. An American Demon flourishes on both extremes, as a scary hardcore punk memoir and as a valuable message to souls navigating through an overly materialistic and woefully self - absorbed ''me first'' modern society.
An American Demon conveys anger and truth within the perfect setting, using a youth rebellion that changed the world to open doors for this level of brash destruction. Told from the point of view of a seminal member of the American Punk movement - doused in violence, rebellion, alcoholism, drug abuse, and ending with beautiful lessons of sobriety and absolution - this book is as harrowing and life - affirming as anything you're ever going to read.

16. A Brief Guide to Star Wars The Unauthorised Inside Story of George Lucas's Epic (Large Print 16pt) - Brian J. Robb

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

George Lucas was a rebel, refusing to make films in the style of the dying studio system, relentlessly pushing the technology of the day, and almost alone in understanding the potential of merchandising; but he was a rebel who built an empire. From the staggering unexpected success of the original ''Star Wars'' in 1977, when cinema attendances exceeded 20 million for the first time since 1963, through ''The Empire Strikes Back'' and ''Return of the Jedi'', then the 'dark times', the 16 years leading to the blockbusting prequel trilogy - this is the fascinating story of how it all happened. Life - long ''Star Wars'' fan and movie journalist Brian J. Robb edited the official ''Star Wars'' magazine for a decade and visited the sets of ''Attack of the Clones'' and ''Revenge of the Sith'' in Australia (observing director George Lucas at work), as well as the famous ''Skywalker Ranch''. He has interviewed many of the stars and crew of all six ''Star Wars'' movies.

17. A Brief Guide to Jeeves and Wooster (Large Print 16pt) - Nigel Cawthorne

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This title is a comprehensive guide to P. G. Wodehouse's two best - loved comic characters, Bertram Wilbeforce Wooster and his valet ('Reggie') Jeeves, Bertie's friends and relatives and their world of sunshine, country houses and champagne. Although the stories may seem quintessentially English, they were for the most part written in the United States by a man who spent more than half his adult life there, eventually becoming a citizen in 1955. The first stories involving the two characters are even set in New York, while those that aren't are set in an England that has never existed, contrived to appeal to an American audience. Cawthorne offers fascinating insights into Wodehouse's world, his life - on Long Island and elsewhere - the wonderful short stories and novels and the many adaptations for stage and screen.

20. A Very Courageous Decision The Inside Story of Yes Minister (Large Print 16pt) - Graham McCann

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The behind - the - scenes story of one of the most successful and admired sitcoms of the 1980s In 1977 the BBC commissioned a new satirical sitcom set in Whitehall. Production of its first series was stalled, however, by the death throes of Jim Callaghan's Labour government and the 'Winter of Discontent'; Auntie being unwilling to broadcast such an overtly political comedy until after the general election of 1979. That Yes Minister should have been delayed by the very events that helped bring Margaret Thatcher to power is, perhaps, fitting. Over three series from 1980 - and two more as Yes, Prime Minister until 1988 - the show mercilessly lampooned the vanity, self - interest and incompetence of our so - called public servants, making its hapless minister Jim Hacker and his scheming Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey two of the most memorable characters British comedy has ever produced. The new prime minister professed it her favourite television programme - a 'textbook' on the State in inaction - and millions of British viewers agreed. In the years since Yes Minister has become a national treasure: Sir Humphrey's slippery circumlocutions have entered the lexicon, regularly quoted by political commentators, and the series' cynical vision of government seems as credible now as it did thirty years ago. Much of this success can be credited to its writers, Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn, who drew on their contacts in Westminster to rework genuine political folly as situation comedy. Storylines that seemed absurd to the public were often rooted in actual events - so much so that they occasionally attracted the scrutiny of Whitehall mandarins. In A Very Courageous Decision acclaimed entertainment historian Graham McCann goes in search of the real political fiascos that inspired Yes Minister. Drawing on fresh interviews with cast, crew, politicians and admirers, he reveals how a subversive satire captured the mood of its time to become one of the most cherished sitcoms of Thatcher's Britain.
