            In DUNE: The Graphic Novel, Book 2: Muad'Dib, the second of three volumes adapting Frank Herbert's Dune, young Paul Atreides and his mother, the lady Jessica, find themselves stranded in the deep desert of Arrakis. Betrayed by one of their own and destroyed by their greatest enem...y, Paul and Jessica must find the mysterious Fremen, or perish. This faithful adaptation of the 1965 novel, Dune, by Brian Herbert, son of Frank Herbert, and New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson, continues to explore Paul's journey as he evolves from boy to mysterious messiah. Illustrated by Raul Allen and Patricia Martin, this spectacular blend of adventure and spirituality, environmentalism, and politics is a groundbreaking look into our universe and is transformed by the graphic novel format into a powerful, fantastical tale for a new generation of readers.

            A beautifully designed new book that champions recent film, animation and video art made by Maori artists. Whether it be 16mm film, hand-drawn animation, 4K video or footage recorded on a phone, moving image artworks create a unique space for Maori artists to connect the forms, p...atterns and concepts of toi ataata (Maori visual arts) with the oral histories, performance and music of nga mahi a te rehia (the arts of performance). This new book acknowledges the senior Maori artists who have led the way, and the newer generations working with moving image to convey concepts of whakapapa, whenua and whanaungatanga.

            'Her gift for directly communicating the open-heartedness and spirit of adventure with which she confronts her life ... is the stuff of bestsellers' Joan Bakewell, Guardian Sheila Hancock looked like she was managing old age. She had weathered and even thrived in widowhood, takin...g on acting roles that would have been demanding for a woman half her age. She had energy, friends, a devoted family, a lovely home. She could still remember her lines. So why, at 84, having sailed past supposedly disturbing milestones - 50, 70 even 80 - without a qualm, did she suddenly feel so furious? Shocking diagnoses, Brexit and bereavement seemed to knock her from every quarter. And that was before lockdown. Home alone, classified as 'extremely vulnerable', she finds herself yelling at the TV and talking to the pigeons. But she can at least take a good long look at life - her work and family, her beliefs (many of them the legacy of her wartime childhood) and, uncomfortable as it might be to face, her future. In Old Rage, one of Britain's best loved actors opens up about her ninth decade. Funny, feisty, honest, she makes for brilliant company as she talks about her life as a daughter, a sister, a mother, a widow, an actor, a friend and looks at a world so different from the wartime world of her childhood. And yet - despite age, despite rage - she finds there are always reasons for joy.
