To have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part... Any couple who have stayed together happily over the years have much to celebrate. Steve Palin, author and artist of the bestselling book A Murmuration of Starlings, displays here which gifts, modern or traditional, mark which particular anniversary of 'staying together', from the romantic first to the romantic last... The symbols and themes of love are explained and beautifully illustrated - from flowers, gemstones, practical or luxurious gifts to large or small love tokens. In watercolours and words are the gifts you might like to give on your anniversary, for each passing year.

What is an idiom? It's a turn of phrase designed to convey a meaning which is different from the literal meaning of the words. But this is a fun take on the subject. Artist and writer Steve Palin has combined another of his passions: his love of animals, birds and insects - to come up with a delightful book in which he has illustrated and explained his favourite wildlife idioms. Cat among the pigeons, big fish in a small pond, a kangaroo court - these idioms have inspired some of his joyous paintings in this book, each paired with his short explanation of how the term came to be used. Hours of fun guessing what the idiom depicted is, with the answer on the following page!
