Stealing with the Eyes

Paperback
by Buckingham, Will
Will Buckingham travelled to Tanimbar Islands (Indonesia) as a trainee anthropologist to meet three remarkable sculptors: the crippled Matias Fatruan, the buffalo hunter Abraham Amelwatin, and Damianus Masele, who was skilled in black magic, but who abstained out of Christian principle.

Hardback
by Bersier, Gabrielle
The German polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is often seen as the quintessential eighteenth-century tourist, though with the exception of a trip to Italy he hardly left his homeland. Compared to several of his peripatetic contemporaries, he took few actual journeys, and the list of European cities in which he never set foot is quite long. He never saw Vienna, Paris, or London, for example, and he only onc...

Paperback
by Bose, Mihir
The British like to see themselves as tolerant and believers in fair play. Yet, often in thought and deed, they behave in a fashion that could not remotely be considered moral. This is the great British moral dilemma, a country forever wrestling with whether to be Lions who roar and conquer everyone or gentle lambs that gambol about happily without a care in the world. In the days of the empire these two fa...

The Photographs of Joan Leigh Fermor: Artist and Lover

Hardback
by Stewart, Olivia
Elusive, enigmatic and beautiful, Joan Leigh Fermor (1914-2003) was also one of the finest photographers of her time. Although hailed and hired by John Betjeman and Cyril Connolly from the 1930s, and a remarkable recorder of the London Blitz, she most excelled in pictures of unspoilt Greece taken between 1945 and 1960 as visual notes and with no thought of publication. The scale of her achievement was only ...
