Called Home The Dartmoor Tin Miner 1860-1940 Photoraphs & Memory

Tom Greeves    [Publisher: Twelveheads]    Hardback

A really lovely book, as well produced as you'd expect from Twelveheads, which recalls and desribes the Dartmoor tin mining industry. The author began his interest in the 1960s when he studied the Sheepstor parish as a student, which led him to both further documentary research, field visits and conversations with the generation who had worked in the tin industry. He collected and took some very good photographs, many of which illustrate this book, and which feature more than a glimpse of the actual installations and the minor narrow gauge systems utilised.

Dazzle Disguise And disruption In War And Art

James Taylor    [Publisher: Akeman Press]    Hardback

A fascinating book that explores the development of "dazzle camouflage" by Naval commander Norman Wilkinson from 1917. The influences and ideas that led to the design are discussed as are its objectives, together with a discussion of how well it worked and its wider influences in the worlds of both art, commerce and military camouflage. The book is beautifully produced and includes a wealth of both black and white and colour illustrations, including some truly stunning pieces of art.
