The Journey is the Destination: The Journals of Dan Eldon - Kathy Eldon 21/06/2010

A truly inspirational book of a photojournalists life in Africa

The Journey is the Destination: The Journals of Dan Eldon - Kathy Eldon Dan Eldon was born in England in 1970 and was raised in Nairobi, Kenya. He was a photojournalist who worked for Reuters. Dan tragically lost his life at the young age of 22, and despite only living to this age, he had experienced more in his life than most adults who live to their 80’s. Dan had travelled through four continents, written a book, made a film and led expeditions through Africa, (which is where majority of the work in these journal pages were made and inspired by). He travelled through various countries in Africa with friends, experiencing the highs and the lows of the continent. Dan’s mother and sister spent many dedicated hours working through his journals, which they themselves had never seen before, and selected the pages to put into this book that they feel represent Dan’s journey the best. It is not only a wonderful tribute to his life, showing the work of his journals that he kept so private, but also a great source of inspiration to anyone who loves scrapbooking, travel documenting, creating journals or art in general. --------------- - INTRODUCTION: The book begins with an eight-page introduction written by Kathy Eldon – Dan’s mum. She talks about his life as he was growing up, the things they did together, the difficult decision she faced when he begged her not to make him leave Africa, despite the obvious dangers he faced, and finally how she and the rest of the family dealt with the tragic news of his death. The introduction looks lengthy, but is so ...

Artists' Journal and Sketchbooks - Lynne Perrella 18/06/2010

Artists Journals & Sketchbooks: Great for ideas & inspiration

thecharmworks.com 14/05/2010

Amazing selection of high quality charms

thecharmworks.com I first came across this website when I decided I wanted a personalized charm bracelet for my 18th birthday. I searched endlessly for a bracelet that I felt suited my personality, and after failing to find one, searched for a website that would let me create my own. This is when I found The Charm Works. The website has a simple layout, with a category list down the side listing the following choices: - Silver Charm Bracelets - Sterling Silver Charms - Finished Silver Charm Bracelets - Swarovski Crystal Charms - Silver Necklaces & Chains Charm Bracelet Builder: (Link found on the Silver Charm Bracelets page) This is all done online - no software needs to be downloaded to your computer! You select the bracelet you want from the side bar on the left, then browse through the charms using the drop down list of categories, then simply drag the charm to the bracelet image displayed at the top of the page. It is easy to remove a charm too if you change your mind on it. The price is displayed on the page and updated each time you add/remove a charm to let you know how much you are spending. Once you are finished with your bracelet, you just click 'add to basket' and go to the checkout. Price: This really depends on what you are after - bracelets can be bought with as little as one charm on, all the way up to seventeen. The bracelets average at £18, and then the charms are generally between £4 and £6 each. This means that a bracelet can be created for as much or as little money ...

Wicked: The Grimmerie - David Cote 27/11/2009

A perfect reminder of an excellent show

Wicked: The Grimmerie - David Cote Having been to see Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London three times, and with tickets booked to see it on Broadway next Easter, you can tell I am a fan! What I wanted however, was a reminder of the show for when it is no longer in production, and this is exactly what i found in 'The Grimmerie'. The book is named 'The Grimmerie' after the spell book that features in the musical, and to me is a perfect name for such a book. It contains information on how the musical 'Wicked' was created, interviews with the original cast, stunning photographs of the production from Broadway, behind-the-scene looks at the production of the musical, and my personal favourite; parts of the script and all the song lyrics form the show. PRESENTATION: The front cover is simple but striking. It is green; to tie in with the colour's of 'Wicked'. It has the show's logo and name, and then 'The Grimmerie - a behind the scenes look at the hit broadway musical' printed in the centre of the cover. The book has an old fashioned style to it, with an antique look to the front cover. Inside, the pages all follow in the same antique style. Most pages are cream, which makes the text (printed mainly in black with some green) easy to read. Photographs are present on practically all pages, breaking up the text and making it easy to read. There are some stunning pages mixed in with the text that are full double page photographs from the broadway show itself. These images are so bright and colourful, you ...

DON'T RUN, Whatever You Do - Peter Allison 12/09/2009

hilarious light reading

DON'T RUN, Whatever You Do - Peter Allison I bought this book because of my interest in Africa, and the life of safari guides. I did not expect this book to be so entertaining, or have it make me want to read it over and over again! (As I have done!) SYNOPSIS: The book tells Peter Allison's (the author) account of his time working as a top safari guide in Africa. He tells all sorts of tales about the rich tourists he has to look after, as well as many narrow escapes he was with dangerous wild animals. Using his unique humour and wit, these tales are brought alive, and by the end of the book you feel as if you experienced his life in Africa with him! Allison tells of the young lady who refused to wear the recommended safari-friendly khaki to wear a more fashionable hot pink; the drunk, half-naked missing tourist who happened to be a member of the British royal family; the squirrel that overdosed on malaria tablets; the monkeys with an underwear fetish; and last, but by no means least, Spielberg the Japanese tourist who wanted a repeat performance of Allison s narrow escape from a pair of charging lionesses so he could videotape it LIGHT OR HEAVY READING? This is a very easy book to dip in and out of, and makes for great holiday reading. It is very entertaining, and I would say is suitable for ages 8+. PRICE: This book is originally priced at £10, which to me is on the expensive side, but can be found on the internet for £5, which is much more reasonable. Alternatively, a lot of libraries stock this book, so take it ...
