No! No! No! The little troll is terribly angry. It's like there's a storm inside him, with lightning shooting out of the sky and thunder rumbling loudly.

Creating a capsule collection - a fashion collection based on one single design concept - is a process that requires much thought and organization, with different steps to be considered. Firstly, it is necessary to find a concept: one single theme that structures the designs of that collection and from which the creations are developed. The next step is to design a moodboard, an inspirational collage formed by images, text and samples of materials prior to the design of the collection, which then leads to the initial sketches using the illustration technique of one's choosing. Through these 16 tutorials the reader will learn the necessary elements that any process should have when designing a collection and how it should be presented in a portfolio. The techniques used in the book range from watercolour to collage, as well as digital tools. This is a book from which aspiring fashion designers will be able to draw the inspiration and skills needed to launch their own collection.

This evocative cookbook invites kids of all ages to the table for more mouthwatering innovative outdoor fare put together by the James Beard Award-nominated author of Wild: Adventure Cooking. In her first cookbook, Sarah Glover showed the world how liberating, satisfying, and easy it is to cook beautiful healthy food outdoors. Now she brings kids of all ages into the mix, proving that they too can take part in collecting, preparing, and cooking campfire meals the whole family can enjoy. Glover’s simple yet elegant meals are inspired by the land and the sea: fish and ears of corn dangled on a stick over an open flame; perfect bread baked directly on hot coals; kale and potatoes simmered in saltwater; eggs fried alongside spicy sausage and toast; chili-brined cherry tomatoes—and more. Glover emphasizes fresh seasonal food that can be acquired locally. And, while her techniques date back to ancient traditions, the flavors are distinctly modern. Brimming with gorgeous landscape photography from across the Australian continent, this stylish yet down-to-earth cookbook encourages families to embrace the outdoors, teaches young chefs valuable techniques and life skills, and proves once again that everything tastes better cooked over an open flame.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Richard Johns reflects on his illustrious career in this fascinating autobiography. During his time in the RAF, Sir Richard attended RAF College Cranwell, served as an operational fast-jet pilot on Javelin night-fighters and then fighter-reece Hunters operating from Aden and Oman. He also commanded the Harrier Force in Germany. As a qualified flying instructor, he taught the Prince of Wales to fly to wings standard. During the 1990s, Sir Richard held a succession of senior national and NATO appointments and played an important role throughout conflicts such as the first Gulf War and the Balkans war. It was in 1997 that he received his appointment as chief of the Air Staff where he was responsible for the operational efficiency and morale of the Royal Air Force. During his last three years of service, the air chief marshal was fully involved in the decision-making process of the Strategic Defence Review, the commitment of RAF aircraft to operations over and within Kosovo and continuing air operations over north and south Iraq. His distinguished career gave him the privilege of a rare, if not singular, perspective of the RAF, its sister services and national defence matters, witnessing a steady decline in the combat power of the UK’s armed forces as financial management took precedence over identifying strategic priorities and maintaining the vital skill-set of service personnel. His views are forensic and forthright, balanced and thought-provoking and this autobiography should be essential reading for anyone interested in the development of Allied air power over the last fifty years.

In the world of textiles, knitted fabric is one of the most complicated to work with, but also one of the most commonly used. This is a book for all those fashion lovers who, although fascinated by knitted fabric, have never yet dared to venture into this field and for those advanced and professional knitters who want to systematically round off their knowledge. It includes all the steps necessary to realize a knitted garment, from the choice of yarn to manufacturing apparel, explaining how to use a knitting machine correctly, the linking, cutting, sewing, and, last but not least, ironing of knitted garments. The author describes the various stitches in a clear and well-structured manner with a language of symbols developed to be used for all kinds of studio and domestic knitting machines, regardless of the brand: Brother, Silver Reed, Coppo and Dubied. The book includes examples of working with traditional materials like wool, alpaca, cotton or linen, but also encourages experiments with paper, plastic materials, vegetal and metallic yarns, to create sculptures, reliefs and three-dimensional effects.

The English Electric Canberra first came into production in the late 1940s and has since played a hugely significant part in world events. In Canberra Boys, Andrew Brookes takes us through its rich history with the help of those who operated this magnificent machine. Contributors include Roly ‘Bee’ Beamont, the English Electric test pilot who first flew the aircraft in 1949. As part of the expansion of the RAF’s Bomber Command in the 1950s, RAF Binbrook was the first station to house four Canberra squadrons, starting with 101 Squadron in May 1951. Since then and throughout the 20th century, the Canberra operated across the globe in Europe, South America and South East Asia. It has served an array of air forces such as the USAF, Australian air force and the Indian air force – the third largest operator of the Canberra after the RAF and USAF. This led to the Canberra playing a crucial role as a photo-reconnaissance aircraft in phenomenal operations like the Suez Campaign, the nuclear tests of Operation Grapple and the Indonesian Confrontation. Other tales in the book include participation in the Sassoon Trophy competition, long-distance flights in Exercise Round Trip, and Operation Quick Flight. Concluding with the Canberra PR9’s final RAF flight on 39 Squadron in July 2006, this book provides a detailed and fascinating history of an outstanding aircraft alongside illuminating anecdotes from the men who served with this aircraft. Vulcan To The Sky are restoring Canberra WK163 to flight in 2017/18.

Nimrod Boys is a complementary book to Nimrod Rise and Fall from acclaimed author Tony Blackman. It is a collection of over twenty first-hand accounts of operating the Hawker Siddeley Nimrod – an aircraft which served at the forefront of the Cold War. As the first jet-powered maritime aircraft, it could reach critical points for rescues or for operational requirements in rapid time. Its outstanding navigation and electronics systems also allowed the Nimrod to be a first-class machine in anti-submarine warfare. The book focuses on the Nimrod’s UK-based and worldwide operations. With detailed accounts of the Nimrod’s role during the Falklands Campaign and in later conflicts such as the First Gulf War to modern-day anti-drug smuggling operations in the Caribbean. There are also descriptions of the Nimrod’s achievements in the International Fincastle Competition – where RAF squadrons competed against counterparts from Australia, Canada and New Zealand. With a variety of perspectives on Nimrod crew life, including from a female air electronic operator, readers will find dramatic, engaging and occasionally humorous stories. One flight test observer also reflects on the cancelled Nimrod MR4 project. Nimrod Boys written by Tony Blackman with Joe Kennedy and with a foreword by AVM Andrew Roberts is more than worthy addition to the celebrated Boys series.
