From his home base in Denmark, Jakob Schultz interviewed tattooists from around the world, with an emphasis on Scandinavian artists. Each featured artist says a little about his or her craft and then the pictures do the talking. Photographer Michael Caddy Sondergaard captures the personalities and styles of the tattooists, and then the fresh ink of their clients, with great flair. Every speck of ink, right down to the pores of living canvases, is revealed in stunning detail.

Bottoms Up In Belgium

‘Brussels and all those Eurocrats on the gravy train? It’s just so boring. Why, youcan’t even name ten famous Belgians!’

Until 1993, Alec had never been to Belgium, so it came as some surprise when in August that year he found himself at the altar of a small church in Flanders, reciting wedding vows in Flemish. It was the start, for better or for worse, of along relationship with this unassuming and much maligned little country. He decided to put worldwide opinion to the test: is Belgium really as boring as people say it is? Immersing himself in Belgian culture – and sampling the local beer and ‘cat poo’ coffee along the way – he discovers a country of contradictions; of Michelin stars and processed food, where Trappist monks make the best beer in the worldand grown men partake in vertical archery and watch roosters sing (not necessarily at the same time). This colourful and eccentric jaunt is proof that Belgium isn’t just a load of waffle.

This important, research-based text explores the concept of literacy as social practice within diverse family, community and educational settings. Its theoretical premise - that literacy learning and life chances are inextricably linked - is underscored by practical example, teachers’ stories and real-world vignettes.
With close reference to the Early Years Learning Framework, this book acknowledges the multiplicity of ‘literacy’ experiences that manifest in the lives of young children from birth to five.
It provides clear guidelines and foundational principles for tertiary students, early childhood professionals and primary school teachers, as they work to support literacy learning and prepare children for future success.

Diverse Literacies in Early Childhood:
• includes direct links in each chapter to the Early Years Learning Framework, Australian Curriculum, National Goals for Schooling and National Quality Standard
• includes case studies, sample documentation and examples
• outlines the importance of popular culture and digital media in the lives of young children and families
• explores the partnerships that extend all children’s literacy participation across homes, early childhood settings and schools
• investigates ways of documenting and assessing children’s literacy interests and pedagogies for extending literacy learning
• focuses on diverse sociocultural contexts.
