              How to Choose, Brief and Work with Graphic Designers (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

              By Field, Amanda J.

              A company's visual identity - as it appears in everything from business stationery and brochures, to product packaging and websites - is central to a company's impact on the market. It's the first impression a prospective customer gets: but for many businesses, design is seen as ...a 'necessary evil', best avoided, but if that's not possible, then best done cheaply. This down-to-earth, succinct handbook will show you why you should choose your designer as carefully as you would choose a new, se...

              Jobsworth (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

              By Philips, Malcolm

              Malcolm Philips was a reluctant bureaucrat. When it was suggested that he give up selling ice-cream and go to work for the council, he protested that it would be full of jobsworths, skivers and crawlers. Truth to tell, however, he quickly fitted in among what his boss described a...s all the other 'sods and buggers' at County Hall. The 1960s and 1970s were the halcyon days of local government when rules and regulations multiplied at the expense of common sense and no-one was entirely sure wha...

              Me and My Hair (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

              By Malcolmson, Patricia

              Good hair day? Bad hair day? Hair has always evoked strong emotions. In this fascinating book, Patricia Malcolmson examines how British women over the past 150 years have managed their hair, from the extravagant styles of the late nineteenth century to the 'anything goes' atti...tude of today, taking in along the way the daring bobs of the 1920s, the wartime styles of women in uniform, the slavish copying of Hollywood stars, the beehive, the hippy and the Goth. In Me and My Hair you'll hear ...

              The Ismay Line (EPUB ebook – 2nd edition)

              By Oldham, Wilton J.

              The Ismay Line charts the rise and fall of one of the most eminent British shipping companies - and tells the story of the family behind it. The founder of the White Star Line, T H Ismay, pioneered a revolutionary design of iron steamships, built for him by Harland & Wolff of Bel...fast. By the time of his death in 1899 he had become the most successful steamship owner in the world. He was succeeded by his son, Bruce Ismay, who in April 1912 was aboard his latest ship, Titanic, when it collided...

              Next Train's Gone! (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

              By Field, Amanda J.

              In the 1930s, British film producers and critics championed the idea of 'quality' pictures - thoughtful, intelligent films that would project a particular and positive view of Britain. The result was to drive a wedge between 'national' cinema (which reflected middle-class values)... and 'popular' cinema (which reflected the working-class values of the majority of cinema audiences). 'Popular' became a term of abuse, particularly directed at comedies, whose roots often lay in music-hall. A very d...

              Sherlock Holmes in Advertising (EPUB ebook – 2nd edition)

              By Field, Amanda J.

              This fascinating book explores the way that Sherlock Holmes has been appropriated by British businesses to advertise everything from carpets and tyres, to honey and whisky. Somerset Maugham believed that Holmes had survived so long in the public imagination because Arthur Conan D...oyle had hammered the detective's idiosyncracies into the minds of his readers with 'the same pertinacity as the great advertisers use to proclaim the merits of their soap, beer or cigarettes'. Linking Holmes with co...

              Impeccably Dressed (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

              By Field, Amanda J.

              Does Laura Mulvey's theory, that only women can be the object of the erotic gaze in cinema, still hold true if films that lie beyond mainstream Hollywood are examined? Through close analysis of the 1937 French film Pepe-le-Moko, this paper examines those aspects of the filmmakers...' craft which influence the direction of the gaze - such as costume, cinematography/lighting, use of the body, and star persona. It demonstrates the way the film helped build on the Jean Gabin 'myth' through a fetish...

              Mollie's Tailpiece (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

              By Harris, Christine M.

              Every Sunday, Mollie - a miniature dachshund - would attend Mass at Holy Trinity Church in Gosport with her owner, Christine Harris. Mollie had her own kneeler, received the blessing of St Francis from the priest and regarded it as her special duty to welcome newcomers to the chu...rch. She was also known to be partial to a quick puff of incense. Her fame spread throughout the town when - in 2008 after her 'sister' Sascha died - she took over Sascha's column in the parish magazine. Written with...
