The Andrew Martin brand no longer just stands for a sumptuous selection of decorative fabrics, wall cov-erings, designer furniture, and home accessories, but also for the “Andrew Martin Interior Designer of the Year Award.” Volume 18 of the Interior Design Review once again features the designers who have won over the renowned jury with their work. Richly illustrated with over 1000 color photographs, this retrospective of the publication—now in its 18th year—has been dubbed “the bible of interior design.” A compendium of contemporary interior design styles, it’s essential for any professional interior decorator or design lover. The artists are individually presented, followed by contact details in an appendix. The broad sweep of exemplary interiors represents an extraordinary variety of international design—brought to life with lush, glossy photos. With a mix of different cultures, the interiors assembled here nostalgically allude to a wide range of styles, while also embodying Andrew Martin’s dazzling world of interior design. © Andrew Martin Interior Design Review Volume 18, published by teNeues, www.teneues.com.

Andrew Nicholson is one of the world's leading event riders. He rode in his first Olympics aged 23 in Los Angeles in 1984, and has represented his native New Zealand in six Olympic Games and six world championships, winning medals of every colour. Andrew is respected and admired by his peers and sporting fans as a brilliant rider and competitor. At the age of 54 he is at the peak of his powers and, with the best team of horses he has ever had, is focused on winning one of the very few prizes to elude him an individual gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. This book tells the story of the boy from a farm in New Zealand who came to Britain as a raw 18-year-old and conquered one of the most demanding sports in the world. Illustrated with superb photographs of Andrew's career and life with horses, it reveals how he got to the top and how hard he still strives to up his game. We discover the personalities of his top horses, and the secrets he has learnt in his 35 years as a horseman. Foreword by Captain Mark Phillips.

Visitors marvel at Hong Kong's breathtaking location, its amazing architecture, its exciting shopping, and its fine dining. And yet it is a land of opposites—of order juxtaposed with chaos, of ancient etiquette and seemingly abrupt manners, a place where rich and poor live in close proximity. Culturally, Hong Kong is rooted in the traditions of China, but there is more than a patina of Westernization. And despite stiff competition, it remains the principal international financial center in China. Hong Kong has more holidays than anywhere in the world, and most are celebrated in the streets or parks. Culture Smart! Hong Kong introduces the reader to this vibrant, multifaceted society. It provides helpful advice and cultural insights on business practice and social etiquette.

Following the success of Karyn Hay’s historical fiction novel, The March of the Foxgloves, Karyn returns with Winged Helmet, White Horse – more reminiscent in style of her debut, Emerald Budgies. Set in contemporary London, Winged Helmet, White Horse is a darkly comic psychological drama. Tim has mastered the art of subordination; to his job, his wife, and even his daughter. Having written one critically acclaimed book of poetry he is struggling to write a second, while his wife, Natasha, who is into “positive affirmations”, and spending money, has plans of her own. As Tim stumbles through the social landscape of suburban London, trying to give up alcohol and gain some control over his life, he makes several disturbing discoveries; ultimately concluding that he is not in control of anything, and that it’s all been a terrible, deadly illusion.
