S. R. Badmin and the English Landscape by Chris Beetles (£79.00)Publisher: London: Collins — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0004120205]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Signed by the author on the half-title page beneath his name — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated by way of: Colour Plates; Black & White Plates; Chronology Tables; Laid in publishers compliment slip and exhibition invitation.

From the cover: “S. R. BADMIN AND THE ENGLISH LANDSCAPE is a celebration and appreciation of one of Britain’s foremost watercolour painters. The work of Stanley Roy Badmin is uniquely familiar and dear to the post-war generation. No other artist has had such consistent popular exposure: for forty years his beautifully detailed and romantic landscapes have graced nature books and travel guides, Puffin Picture Books, the covers of Radio Times and Reader’s Digest, and innumerable greetings cards and calendars.

S. R. BADMIN AND THE ENGLISH LANDSCAPE is an authoritative and long-overdue survey of Badmin’s life and art. The text is lavishly accompanied by a selection of his book illustrations as well as a wealth of his sketches taken from over sixty years of careful work and loving observation of nature.

The text is followed by a catalogue raisonne of Badmin’s etchings, many of them reproduced here for the first time, together with full-colour reproductions of forty-four of Badmin’s best watercolours. The detailed captions to the plates are based on the artist’s own memories, giving a privileged insight into the technique and inspiration for each work. A list of exhibits and book illustrations and a full chronology complete this account of England’s most popular watercolourist.

Badmin teaches us to look again at nature, and share his pleasure in the landscape around us. His countryside is our countryside.”

From the cover: “This publication marks the first of a series of South Bank Centre exhibitions selected by artists and writers with a particular interest in drawing. Deanna Petherbridge is both an accomplished draughts-woman and an eloquent exponent of the art of drawing; her insights bring a fresh perspective to a subject which is rarely dealt with in print in other than specialist terms, of technique or historical scholarship. This exhibition is based on the notion of the primal nature of drawing, its universality and economy of means, its expressive intensity, its ability to reveal process and autograph.”

Dough: Simple Contemporary Bread by Richard Bertinet (£42.00)Publisher: Kyle Cathie — 2008Binding: Paperback Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 1856267628]Condition: Very Good+. Includes a pristine in appearance DVD to the reverse of the upper wrapper. This is untested and unwarranted. Text complete, clean and tight. A nice copy.Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This award-winning book is an invaluable and beautiful guide on how to make simple contemporary bread. Richard Bertinet brings back the fun to breadmaking with his practical and easy approach so you will never want to buy a supermarket loaf again. He uses a method of ‘working’ the dough rather than ‘kneading’ it, allowing air and therefore lightness to prevail so you don’t create that well-known home-made brick bread.

The five chapters start with a basic bread — White, Olive Oil, Brown, Rye and Sweet — and from this ‘parent’ dough you can bake a vast variety of breads really easily. There are breads for every occasion — bake a pile of scones for tea, make pizza dough with the kids or friends, impress your guests with puff balls for supper, knock up a tantalising focaccia for an informal lunch or treat yourself to a honey and lavender loaf for breakfast — the choices are endless as once you’ve mastered a ‘parent’ dough you can experiment with your own favourite flavours.

Making any of these imaginative breads is bound to lighten your mood and brighten your meal.”

Interpreting the Figure in Watercolor by Don Andrews (£34.00)Publisher: Watson Guptill Publications — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0823025489]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is slightly pulled at the head of the upper panel and has a light stain to the reverse of the same. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Figure painting is considered by many artists to be the most intriguing subject matter of all. But when forced to paint the figure from a laborious, anatomical point of view; artists often become discouraged. Well-known workshop artist Don Andrews advances the idea that the figure can be approached with the same creative attitude with which artists approach the landscape or still life. His emphasis is not on what you know, but on what you see. As demonstrated by Andrews in this book, the task of the painter is to organize, not report. Not only is this method easier, it results in better paintings as well.

Interpreting the Figure in Watercolor takes on a challenging subject: showing how the figure can be painted creatively and beautifully in watercolor through simplification, interpretation, and shape-making. In explaining how to capture the essence of the human figure, Andrews provides basic information about materials and discusses such techniques as gesture drawing and gesture painting; defining the figure with light and shadow and linking darks and lights for unity; introducing backgrounds; creating visual interest; edge quality; color granulation and temperature; middle value construction of the figure; using whites to “turn on the light”; and working from the model and photographs — but leaves readers free to make their own personal statements, to develop their own “how-to”. By carefully observing, interpreting, and then painting what you see, you can achieve very convincing and appealing likenesses of people.

Andrews’ unique approach to painting the figure is designed to teach artists at every level to overcome the obstacles of figure painting. His accessible style will help watercolorists improve their handling of the medium and rendering of the figure dramatically.”

How I Play Golf by Tiger Woods with the editors of Golf Digest (£18.50)Publisher: Little, Brown & Co. — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0316643696]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs [Some Fold-Out]; Diagrams;

From the cover: “The youngest Masters champion ever. The first person since 1953 to win three majors in one year. The fifth — and youngest — golfer to complete a career grand slam. There is, simply, no one who can match the achievements of Tiger Woods. He will win more majors than Arnold Palmer and me combined, claimed Jack Nicklaus and, the frightening thing is, he’s probably right. For Tiger Woods is more than just the best golfer in the world today: he is the most complete player of his era.

Now, in How I Play Golf, Tiger allows us the inside track into his tactics and techniques, and explains what makes his golf ‘tick’. Whether you are an absolute beginner, an enthusiastic amateur, or one of Tiger’s fellow professionals, this book is the essential guide to how to understand — and improve — your game.

Tiger takes his game apart in the same way as he does the field on the back nine on a championship Sunday, he starts where other golfing books end: on the putting green. From there he moves to building a swing to last, sand play, iron play, fairway woods and the driver. There are also chapters on golf psychology, how to break those bad habits and Tiger’s suggested diet and exercise routines.

Beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated, Have I Play Golf is the ultimate golf book from the greatest golfer in the world. From sorting out your swing plane to bouncing the ball off the face of your sand wedge (and looking cool doing it), Tiger tells you everything you need to know to make you a better golfer.”

One of the objectives is to reconsider those parts of the theories of international trade and capital movements which can be profitably analyzed with the technique of the money-income multiplier. Furthermore, an attempt is made to develop the multiplier technique in certain respects, applicable not merely to the theory of foreign trade but also to that of the trade cycle and to monetary problems in general. Lastly, the book has the pedagogic objective to present the multiplier pattern in so patient an exposition that it loses all the horrors which it still seems to hold for many, and becomes an easy tool which the student understands to handle with facility and care.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 6".

The Complete Art of Printing and Enlarging by Dr. O. R. Croy (£13.00)Publisher: Focal Press — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0240447557]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a stain to the foot of the reverse and minor splits at the lower corners.Description: 15th Impression, 3rd Edition. [First Edition: 1950] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “THIS IS THE FIFTEENTH PRINTING of O. R. Croy’s most popular book — which is in its third edition and something of a classic in many languages.

There have been few photographers blessed with such unusual gifts, who have amassed so much varied experience as O. R. Croy did, before he died in 1977.

As the son of a painter he grew up with an artist’s tools. At university he read photographic chemistry to become first a research worker and then a teacher in his own right. Yet somehow this still left him with time for his hobby, conjuring.

His interest in art, his scientific training, his ability to teach and his skilful hands made him a very exceptional sort of photographer. He continuously broke new ground both by using the camera as a tool for serving science and by creating unusual pictures just for the fun of it. His macro-photographic illustrations of natural history and his pictorial jokes in American and Continental magazines thrust into many fields and established new techniques.

Of his books on photography this one is the most methodical and detailed in covering that decisive last phase of photographic work — the finished print — which in the end speaks for every photographer, amateur and professional, beginner and advanced alike.

On how to make prints — ordinary prints and elaborately controlled prints, straightforward prints and very tricky prints—there is such a wealth of technical knowledge and personal experience that you will be unlikely to find it between the covers of any other single volume.

It is like an encyclopaedic cookery book — you can follow its recipes without ever having tried your hand at them before and you will find new ideas, novel methods and exciting possibilities suggested by them, however wide your own experience may be.

And how matter of fact, easily understood and readable it all is! Croy had the gift of really good teachers of never using more words than necessary and never forgetting any that matter. There is a message and a lesson in every sentence he writes. And there is practical evidence in every picture he shows.

A glance at his photographs and his diagrams is the best proof that he knows what he is talking about. They are all his own in this book.”

For today’s artist they are a challenging and rewarding subject and their delicate colours and forms are well suited to the drawing media.

Whether you want to portray a dramatic floral display or concentrate on a single flower head, An Introduction to Drawing Flowers provides a thorough grounding in the skills you will need. The initial chapters concentrate on the importance of observing and understanding the shapes and structures of plants and how they are affected by perspective. Further chapters cover composition and using a sketchbook, and explore suitable media such as pastel, ink, pencil and mixed media. The text is accompanied by finished drawings and step-by-step demonstrations.

An Introduction to Drawing Flowers is an invaluable book, full of practical advice on how to improve your technique. It clearly explains the principles behind drawing flowers and also suggests ways in which artists can expand and develop their skills.”

He describes his psychological development — from a young boy who got up at 4.30 every morning to practise to Test batsman, and tells us how he is motivated, how he concentrates, and how he copes with fear.
