Graphic tees have been around for decades now, representing as-pects of our lives we are not afraid to share in public, from social and political affiliations to artistic and musical preferences, life-style pursuits or sense of humor. Freestyle focuses on one distinct style of this artwork on ap-parel: the simple line illustration. Whether representational or ab-stract, there is a looseness there, a studied playfulness which ap-peals to our sense of whimsy. Brands respond by commissioning some of the world’s best artists to create graphics that speak to their consumers while exemplifying their graphic identities. Not limited to t-shirts, this survey includes sneakers, hats, glasses and accessories, all displaying this casualness of form.

On visiting his local butcher, Norman Tebbit, food lover and family cook wondered why people would rather buy tasteless, factory-farmed chicken when they could eat good-quality game, often for less money. ‘I think mostly’, replied the butcher, ‘ it’s because they don’t know how to cook them – and they think it would be very difficult’ . First published in 2009 and unavailable for many years, this is a revised, updated and redesigned edition, now containing new recipes, of this immensely popular cookbook. Norman Tebbit showcases his favourite game recipes including pheasant, partridge, duck, grouse, wood pigeon, woodcock, deer, rabbit and many more.

The book also includes a concise guide to game, instructions on preparation, advice on kitchen equipment, handy conversion charts and individual hints and tips on the various game included. Written with humour, The Game Cook is a practical handbook of mouth-watering recipes for eco-cooks, traditional food-lovers and those who are looking for some money-saving ways to provide tasty, wholesome meat dishes to the family.

Winner of the 1992 Glenfiddich Award for Food Book of the Year, this is a cookery book with a strong travel bias, dealing with each of Andalucia’s eight provinces in turn to provide a personal, geographical and culinary survey of the area. It shows how the land itself and historical events have influenced the culinary tradition of the region, with its intriguing combination of hearty peasant fare and the delicate seasonings that are a legacy of the Moorish invasions. Each province draws on its own magnificent natural larder, and the recipes, such as hot gazpacho from Huelva, salt cod with potatoes and peppers from Jaén, pork and beans with chard from Seville and chickpea and wheat soup from Almería, reflect this diversity. The author lived in the area for several years. Her personal reminiscences are interwoven with a wealth of cultural and historical information, and the text is accompanied by the author’s own watercolours of dishes, places and scenes of Andalucian life.
