5.0 out of 5 stars Stimulating!, 20 Jun 2014
This is a collection of beautiful and intriguing photographs but what is just as interesting is Chris Packham's comments on each. He is very self critical but they are wonderful images from across the world. Fascinating simply for the images but also for the photographic tips !

This a beautiful book and I would thoroughly recommend it. The illustrations are delightful and the flavour of the west coast of Scotland is wonderfully captured.


Field Notes From a Hidden City: An Urban Nature Diary
Field Notes From a Hidden City: An Urban Nature Diary

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointed, 20 Jun 2014
I am rather disappointed by this book. There is more philosophy and quotes from other writers than I would like in what I thought was a wildlife book. The first quarter of the book seems to be a very long winded lament about snow, I have no memories of quite the endless winter and snow that is described.
Not at all what I expected, could not recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much of some things, not enough of others !, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have many of these guides but was disappointed at the spread of items covered. For example, kitchenalia consists of one page of Pyrexware, four Scandinavian wooden pieces and only three other items !! There are so many fascinating items of kitchenalia, gadgets, etc. In contrast, glassware had 36 pages not including the page of Pyrex and other categories in which it appears. There are 17 pages of posters which, while very interesting, are less widely collected than, for example, the large category of kitchenalia. As usual, the photographs are extremely good giving clear images and very professional.
Please, Judith, go back to a balanced mix of items from different eras. Not everyone wants to see 50s and 60s items given such prominence.

Does what it says but very expensive and I don't feel I should have needed to replace the original so soon - 18 months.

Gorgeous shoes but very small . Had to return for a larger size. No problem doing that but a hassle and would have mattered if time was short.
