  • Barron & Larcher. Textile Designers
    Barron & Larcher. Textile Designers
    During the 1920s and 1930s, Phyllis Barron (1890-1964) and Dorothy Larcher (1882-1952) were at the forefront of a revival in hand block-printing in Britain. As designer-makers they formed a unique partnership, producing innovative textiles and seeing the entire process through from beginning to end. Using whatever materials they could muster - fabric ranging from balloon cotton to prison sheets and velvet, and everyday items such as combs and car mats for printing - and pushing the boundaries of what could be achieved with predominantly natural dyes, these two remarkable women ran a successful business that lasted from 1923 until the outbreak of World War II. Nearly one hundred years on, another special collaboration between the Craft Studies Centre in Farnham, Christopher Farr Cloth and Ivo Prints, has brought a selection of Barron and Larcher's work back into production. The warm welcome they have received across the globe is a testament to the timeless quality of great design.
  • Duncan Alastair, Georges De Bartha. Galle Lamps
    Galle Lamps
    Duncan Alastair, Georges De Bartha
    This book divides the Galle cristallerie's vast production of light fixtures into two basic categories: those created before Galle's death in 1904 and those produced by the firm from then until its closure in 1931. Curiously, many of the firm's most desirable models in today's market were introduced as late as the 1925 Exposition Universelle, Paris, still in the Art Nouveau high style at the very moment that it had been replaced by the era's ascendant Art Deco movement.

    Gemstones. Understanding, Identifying, Buying
    Wallis Keith
    Whether buying gem-set jewellery or loose stones, you will be faced with a colorful array of beauty and value. With such a wide choice - from amethyst to zircon which should you choose? What is it worth, and how do you even know it is real? All that glitters is not gold, as they say, and all that sparkles is not diamond. Gemstones helps to answer these questions in simple and easy to understand terms. As well as diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires, over 100 gems are featured, with full descriptions, technical details, and tips on how to check for fakes; illustrated throughout with fabulous color photographs to make identification easier. Technical terms such as refraction and fluorescence are explained and some basic identification tests are introduced. A helpful tour around the world details where gems are best available. Informative appendices include a glossary of terms, tables of specific gravity and refractive index, and the comparative value of different stones. The clear, uncomplicated presentation makes this book a must for anyone interested in gemstones, whether as an investment or simply as a hobby.
