Screenprinting: The Ultimate Studio Guide from Sketchbook to Squeegee

Screenprinting: The Ultimate Studio Guide from Sketchbook to Squeegee

Print Club London

$50.00
Although the technique of screen printing dates back to first-century China, it became the preferred printing method of choice for musical and political counterculture movements of the 1960s, thanks to its ease, cost, and flexibility. It moved into the mainstream with Andy Warhol's iconic screen print of Marilyn Monroe, and was quickly adopted by artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg.

Screen printing has become even more widespread with the many demonstrations, marches, and grassroots protests in the wake of the American presidential election of 2016. Screen Printing: The Ultimate Studio Guide is a definitive, fully illustrated manual on the techniques, materials, and processes of screen printing.

An essential and highly practical reference, this book is equally suited for beginning and experienced printers, with step-by-step tutorials on basic and advanced techniques, as well as "workshops" by several of the world's best-known screen printers, including Ben Eine and Bob Gill.

Hal Missingham

Hal Missingham

Lou Klepac

$120.00
Artist, teacher, graphic designer, photographer, Hal Missingham was also Director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales for twenty-six years from 1945 to 1971. It was a time when Australian painting reached a period of flowering and artists such as Russell Drysdale, Sidney Nolan, Ian Fairweather, John Olsen and Brett Whiteley created some of the most memorable Australian paintings of the twentieth century. And yet the state art galleries were in disarray with minimal staff and steered by reactionary Trustees who would have none of the work of the young, upcoming generation of artists.

Missingham battled on, weathered the difficulties with a determined and idealistic belief that he would win in the end. Exhibitions he organised such as French Art Today 1953 and Italian Art of the 20th Century 1956, which toured the State Galleries, opened up new possibilities for the younger generation of painters and influenced a new direction in Australian art. When he acquired an important work by Sidney Nolan from an exhibition, with what was a director’s small acquisition fund, the Trustees relieved him of this allowance. The painting, Pretty Polly Mine 1949, is today one of the most important works in the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Missingham was loved and admired for his positive, optimistic view of life. After he retired he went to live in Perth, to resume his life as an artist and photographer. It was an ideal period until an electric fire destroyed his studio at Darlington, many of his works and a detailed record of his life from 1926 to 1985. It was a bitter blow. After a series of strokes, he lost his sight and died in 1994.

This book deals with the many sides of this remarkable man, and a unique Australian, who was equally ebullient and modest.

Maggie's Recipe for Life

Ralph Martins ,  Maggie Beer

$39.99
This book is so important to me.

To have a healthy old age you must act now, whether you are 30 or 50.

I have two great passions – sharing my love of cooking delicious simple food and improving the health and nutrition of older people. I hope this cookbook does both but it’s not for ‘old’ people, it’s for you. I have been delighted to work with leading Alzheimer’s researcher Professor Ralph Martins in recent years and I have learned that if we are to avoid Alzheimer’s and other lifestyle diseases it is what we eat today that matters.

These are my recipes for every day, for everybody, full of deep flavours and beautiful ingredients that will nourish you and your family. Nobody wants to eat worthy food that tastes like cardboard. For me, food without flavour is unthinkable! And so is the notion of restricting whole food groups. My recipe for life is to have a healthy attitude to eating – it’s all about balance, variety and choosing foods that give you the best chance of being in good health now and into your future. This is not a diet book – it’s a way of life.

~ Maggie Beer

Maggie Beer and Professor Ralph Martins have teamed up to fight one of the most debilitating diseases of our later years. Based on the latest scientific research, Maggie has created more than 200 recipes that help provide the nutrients we need for optimum brain health. More than one million Australians are affected every day by Alzheimer’s or its impact on their family but the good news is that you can eat well to age well, from this moment on.

The proceeds from Maggie’s Recipe for Life will be shared between the Maggie Beer Foundation and the Lions Alzheimer’s Research Foundation.

Good Food Guide 2018

Good Food Guide 2018

Myffy Rigby ,  Roslyn Grundy

$29.99
This year, for the first time, it's a national book with hats awarded across Australia.

In a historic development, the Good Food Guide will become a national edition for the first time.

The 2018 edition, to be published later this year, will review 500 restaurants around Australia and award hats to the best places from Darwin to Hobart, Melbourne to Perth, and Sydney to Brisbane.

The move builds on a proud 38-year tradition. The Age Good Food Guide was launched in 1979 and The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide followed five years later. The Brisbane Times Good Food Guide was added in 2012.
Collectively, they have become Australia's most trusted restaurant guides, compiled by respected critics and edited by Myffy Rigby and Roslyn Grundy.

"Our defining strength, and the reason people trust the Good Food Guide, is the independence of our critics," says co-editor Myffy Rigby. "Our reviewers arrive unannounced and pay for their own meals. We're stringent when it comes to judging. That means we look at service, ambience, X factor, and most importantly, food to award those all-important hats."

Hats are awarded to the best of the best. To achieve a hat is a pinnacle of a chef's career and a restaurant's history, and the term "hatted" has become part of the Australian lexicon.
