Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This well referenced book provides an amply illustrated publication on upholstery conservation which discusses and reviews the issues related to the care, interpretation and treatment of upholstered furniture. Through many well illustrated case studies the inter-disciplinary collaboration fundamental to upholstery conservation, and the complex decision-making process involved in the treatment of upholstered furniture, are made evident. The case histories are contributed by leading international practitioners in the field and concern objects and collections in the care of English Heritage, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and other internationally renowned institutions. Likewise, the contributors, from both sides of the Atlantic, are world-renowned specialists and leaders in this area of conservation working for the public and private sectors. The case histories, illustrated in colour, black and white and specially prepared line drawings, concern object treatment and documentation, the conservation of information, the function and the artefact. They range from the documentation of eighteenth century removable chair covers and the treatment of a nineteenth century carriage to a twentieth century foam-filled chair belonging to a museum.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : The representation of aquatic people in contemporary film and television—from their on-screen sexuality to the mockumentaries they’ve inspired. Mermaids have been a feature of western cinema since its inception and the number of films, television series, and videos representing them has expanded exponentially since the 1980s. Making a Splash analyses texts produced within a variety of audiovisual genres. Following an overview of mermaids in western culture that draws on a range of disciplines including media studies, psychoanalysis, and post-structuralism, individual chapters provide case studies of particular engagements with the folkloric figure. From Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid” to the creation of Ursula, Ariel’s tentacled antagonist in Disney’s 1989 film, to aspects of mermaid vocality, physicality, agency, and sexuality in films and even representations of mermen, this work provides a definitive overview of the significance of these ancient mythical figures in 110 years of western audio-visual media.

Book excerpt/synopsis : Tamera Rehnborg learned about Gods grace the hard way. For years she lived in hard, barren places. Eventually her world spiraled down to a small chamber. She lost her voice, her identity, and her vision. In 2007, a life change forced her to call out to God to make room for her. Growing Room is the chronicling of her move out of those tight places. Slowly and incrementally, God used commonplace life experiences to introduce her to his tenacious gracea grace she had never known. He taught her to seek and to find him in the most obscure and ordinary of places. God revealed himself through the tight places of biblical personages such as Hagar, Gomer, Jacob, Peter, and Mary, but most often he engaged Tamera through her daily routine of living. Through these experiences, she learned to abide in the parameters of his grace. Growing Room is the story of Gods unfolding revelation in every situationholy to the profane, humorous to the serious, and the mundane to the extraordinaryfor us to know him. Tamera wants others who are in tight places to know that the relentless love of God will make room for them to grow into his wholeness and perfection. His beautiful, fierce grace will provide the growing room we need to stretch out into his spacious place.
