The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn: Colour Photographs from a Lost Age
The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn: Colour Photographs from a Lost Age
by David Okuefuna
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £40.00

5.0 out of 5 stars THe dawn of colour photo-jounalism, 22 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having seen the BBC documentary series (which was magnificent) I was very pleased to find the book of the film available. I am not disappointed; the combination of good design and printing make this a study item, not simply a pleasant reminder, and the almost archaeological feel to the images adds greatly to the book's usefulness. A great bargain when I bought it, and gaining in importance every day that something else irreplaceable gets blown up, down, or over!

5.0 out of 5 stars They sent the right DVD, 22 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Badlands [DVD] [1973] (DVD)
I always wanted a copy of Badlands because of the Carl Orff 'Musica Poetica' music in the background. Problem solved, and a very good (if pessimistic) film comes free with the music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good batteries, 22 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are the highest capacity rechargeable batteries I could get to fit the Magic Mouse which came with my new Apple iMac. So far as life goes they are as good as a standard non-rechargeable Duracell, i.e. the mouse stays working for over a fortnight instead of needing a 4 or 5 day recharging cycle like the 2100 mah batteries I was using before. Since I can recharge them on any old Ni-MH charger, they make more sense to me than buying the Apple Charger/Battery product, especially since they come out so much cheaper! Totally satisfactory (until the 3000 mah barrier is broken, anyway...) and a very good price.


Sonnet Technology FireWire 400 to 800  Connector Adapter
Sonnet Technology FireWire 400 to 800 Connector Adapter

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems OK, 22 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this so that I can connect Firewire 400 things to my Intel iMac which only has a Firewire 800 socket. It seems to work OK, as Sonnet things generally do. Not glamorous, not Super High Technology, but very useful.


Workshop Materials (Workshop Practice)

5.0 out of 5 stars Material atlas, 11 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a fantastic guide to all the materials you could possibly want to use in small and model engineering. It ranges from all the commonly used metals to solvents and acids, by way of mixing your own model engine fuels and anodising aluminium. All the metals are discussed in terms of their use, ease of working, and suitability for their intended purpose. If, like me, you are approaching workshop techniques from the complete idiot direction I think that this book is both invaluable and indispensible. Need I say more?

5.0 out of 5 stars Workshop Projects, 11 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this book to find out what there is in it; very good and interesting as many of the projects are sensible tools for further workshop use once made. The final step up the mountain is a project to make a tapping drill for small (fragile) taps. This is quite a complex project but very attractive to me as the commercial alternatives are quite expensive. Not having access to a milling machine makes constructing this a bit theoretical as far as I'm concerned, but everything in this book will interest and be of use to someone; the instructions are clear and make everything look possible!

5.0 out of 5 stars PhD level Origami!, 28 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been involved with Origami for 40 years and this is quite the best technical book on the subject I have found. It tries to show the mathematical basis and application for every stage and technique of the craft from very simple starter models through to the most complex (and terrifyingly complex some of them are!) with wit, enthusiasm and a firm belief in the power of geometry and mathematics. Absolutely fascinating; a great addition to the books about Origami!

I found this book quite a delight. It is saturated with enthusiasm for the techniques of cardboard engineering, especially with relation to creative education, and the 4 models included in the book show the application of the methods explained in the book in a graphic and funny way.

These disks are very good and a great bargain compared to, for example, the official Dremel prices. Thoroughly recommended!

Epson Stylus SX115 All-in-One Printer with Individual Inks

5.0 out of 5 stars Epson Stylus, 6 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't order this All-in-One for my own use but I know the lady I got it for is very pleased with it. I suggested she buy it (through me) as I have used Epson scanners for years with great satisfaction, and find my PictureMate very useful and reliable. The very good price for inks was also very attractive. She certainly sees a big improvement o the Lexmark device she was using before - I think that one gave up the ghost after some very damp weather. Apparently a very satsfactory substitution/upgrade!
