Great tune - heard it on BBC London in Robert Earl's 4/4 slot. Good blend of Jazz/rock and has a nice late sixties sound

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Historical Read, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you love Old London, Victoriana, technical history then I recommend this book.

It describes the appalling conditions in the early to mid 19th century in the worlds most populated city of water & sewage - things that today we take for granted as being unseen, segregated and clean. Even today much of this is due to the ambition and skill of Sir Joseph Bazalgette. Much of London as we know it today evolved as a result of his invention and foresight and certainly his skills saved many lives in the longer run. Fascinating & to think that it is only now that much of his sytem is being upgraded - how much of what is built today would still be in use 100 years from now?

We live in a world of presumed security and isolated from the events of subterfuge and espionage except for the glamourised and doctored output of the film studios. Read this book and realise the alternative world of secretive submarine operations that have been ongoing through the cold war and since. Chilling, fascinating & illuminating.

Gil Elvgren is a pin-up grand master. You will likely recognise a lot of these as his artistry permeates a lot of american contemporary advertising and publicity. Not much to read her but the pictures are wondrous.

If you like old avaition stories you will love this book. I read it as soon as it arrived and have often dipped back into since.
Gives good insight into the overall early Jet Age era and highlights the whole 'make it up as you go' attitude in those early days of discovery. Full of interesting anecdotes and daring do of these pilots - anyone who loves the Vulcan needs to read these book.
If you've ever stared in wonder at a static or flying Vulcan - read this book & I promise you will not only wonder at its aesthetic but the technical wizardry that brought it about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy Tool!, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My son is forever losing his guitar picks. With this tool and some old memebership/credit cards and /or even plastic packaging he can make his own. He still buys proper picks but for practice has been using the ones he's punched and finds them almost as good - handy novelty gift if you know a guitar player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yee Haa!, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as a summer alternative to my leather Aussie hat. I'm well pleased with the look and feel and its fit excellent.
Distressed look avoids that 'new hat' appearance but isn't overdone so avoids looking scruffy.

Compressed paper straw material is very light and is quite tightly weaved so doesn't look frayed and loose like some of the cheaper fancy dress type hats you can get. Can't wait to wear it out - just need some sunshine!

Anyone interested in old school & contemporary Pin-Up should have this book. Maybe not one for the coffee table as some of the pictures are very revealing but fascinating and very stylish. Book is A4 type format and to very thick so don't expect hundreds of pictures but the content is very good.

Bought this through casual interest as I've always been fascinated at how realistic fantasy art can be. This certainly gives good advise as to how basic shape & form is achieved. Has some nice colour plates of popular artworks.
