Asics Women's Gel-1140 Walker (D) Walking Shoe Asics

Being a cyclist, I'm not that familiar with walking shoes and so when I heard that we were going to be hiking as well as cycling (great distances), I wanted to buy something that would be suitable for hiking in Wales and the occasional 'power walk' here in London. These were perfectly good and I didn't even get a blister! I have since learned that for proper hiking, you do need ankle support but for the fairweather walker, these were great.

Also, I have to commend supplier Galaxy Sports for ensuring I received the shoes in time for my holiday - they even ammended the order so the shoes were sent directly to the hostel (out in the sticks) in deepest darkest Wales. Thank you, I… Read more

Do not be fooled, this is not just a pretty face, it is an outstanding reference for anyone passionate about making their house and/or apartment, a living, breathing, aspirational home.

And that's about an inclusive as you can… Read more
2000 Colour Combinations: For Graphic, Web, Textil&hellip by Garth Lewis

I was fortunate enough to have been taught by Garth Lewis at Central Saint Martins and his teachings on colour were on of the best things about that degree. He has since retired and so I was just thrilled when he published this book because it is, essentially, that course (and more) in 336 pages. This means that I now have an archive, of sorts to refer back to when I need to. I've been running my own interior design business, specialising in Colour Consultancy for the last five years and his teachings still influence my work. I cannot recommend this book highly enough - it sits proudly next to the other colour masters, Johannes Itten, Josef Albers, Shigenobu Kobayashi etc.
