The architecture of Michael Hopkins' formative years has evolved into something that defies easy stylistic categorization. In buildings such as the Glyndebourne Opera House, the Inland Revenue Centre and the New Parliamentary Building, a new individuality has emerged. These works have the uncompromising quality of certain nineteenth-century industrial buildings, yet they have gained acceptance among some of Britain's most ancient institutions. They are often hybrid creations, juxtaposing strongly contrasting elements, while also remaining loyal to a strict code of truth to materials and honesty of expression. Traditional and new forms of construction are combined in unconventional ways, often using innovative prefabrication techniques, but without sacrificing traditional craft virtues.Detailed presentations of twenty-six buildings and projects analyse the genesis and logic of a unique, and now instantly recognizable, architecture. The book's publication coincides with Hopkins' most importantcommission to date: the New Parliamentary Building in London, which has an extensive presentation and is the subject of an essay by Patrick Hodgkinson. An essay by respected architecture critic Charles Jencks examines themes and historical precedent in the buildings, and an interview with Michael Hopkins gives a personal perspective to the work and office of Michael Hopkins and Partners.
Welcome to Mister Doodle’s world—it’s different as can be. Come along and help explore his world from A to Z. In C Is for City, we meet Mister Doodle—a stick figure who lives somewhere in between the real world and a child’s imagination. He’s smart and sophisticated with a hint of goofiness—a winning combination that allows him to teach the ABC’s while entertaining! C Is for City introduces toddlers to a unique art style—a mixture of black line art and photography—never before seen in board books. The black ink drawings are simple and clean. The photographs are colorful, and chosen strategically to highlight each letter being taught. The Mister Doodle books also have a “hidden” layer of educational content for hours of fun learning! On each page of C Is for City, toddlers will learn multiple words that start with that particular letter—not just the one word mentioned in the text. For example, they will discover that not only is C for “City,” but C is for “car” or “cab” as well. The entertainment and educational value of this alphabet book far surpasses one read!

Chronicling the British pursuit of the legendary El Dorado, Masters of All They Surveyed tells the fascinating story of geography, cartography, and scientific exploration in Britain's unique South American colony, Guyana. How did nineteenth-century Europeans turn areas they called terra incognita into bounded colonial territories? How did a tender-footed gentleman, predisposed to seasickness (and unable to swim), make his way up churning rivers into thick jungle, arid savanna, and forbidding mountain ranges, survive for the better part of a decade, and emerge with a map? What did that map mean? In answering these questions, D. Graham Burnett brings to light the work of several such explorers, particularly Sir Robert H. Schomburgk, the man who claimed to be the first to reach the site of Ralegh's El Dorado. Commissioned by the Royal Geographical Society and later by the British Crown, Schomburgk explored and mapped regions in modern Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana, always in close contact with Amerindian communities. Drawing heavily on the maps, reports, and letters that Schomburgk sent back to England, and especially on the luxuriant images of survey landmarks in his Twelve Views in the Interior of Guiana (reproduced in color in this book), Burnett shows how a vast network of traverse surveys, illustrations, and travel narratives not only laid out the official boundaries of British Guiana but also marked out a symbolic landscape that fired the British imperial imagination. Engagingly written and beautifully illustrated, Masters of All They Surveyed will interest anyone who wants to understand the histories of colonialism and science.
Domesday Book is the most famous English public record, and it is probably the most remarkable statistical document in the history of Europe. It calls itself merely a descriptio and it acquired its name in the following century because its authority seemed comparable to that of the Book by which one day all will be judged (Revelation 20:12). It is not surprising that so many scholars have felt its fascination, and have discussed again and again what it says about economic, social and legal matters. But it also tells us much about the countryside of the eleventh century, and the present volume is the seventh of a series concerned with this geographical information. As the final volume, it seeks to sum up the main features of the Domesday geography of England as a whole, and to reconstruct, as far as the materials allow, the scene which King William's clerks saw as they made their great inquest.
