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.

*Explores the growth and development and changes in one man’s faith over 87 years

*Debates and analyses, in the light of modern scholarship, key Christian doctrines.

*Speculates on the possible survival or otherwise of the Christian church in the world

Ewing’s life has known many twists and turns. He is still an ordained Presbyterian minister and has been a minister in another calling since 1979.
His faith has been shaped through illness for 5 years with tuberculosis, his theological training for the church, his experiences of the suicidal death of a son, the death of his wife and remarriage, the controversy over a book he wrote about the life of Jesus, his work over nearly 20 years with questioning and rebellious youth and 50 years of radio broadcasting.
Ewing has always questioned his Christian faith and some of the ancient doctrines of the Christian church in the light of the scientific age. The virgin birth of Jesus, the miracles, stories of Jesus’ resurrection and place of the Christian church in a world of many beliefs.
His aim is to encourage his readers to question what they believe and to be honest in their thinking about faith. And to encourage the adoption of a belief system that leads to a moral approach to the whole of life through this philosophical auto biography.

As more and more people move into urban environments, there becomes a greater need for space-conscious housing in our cities. Collective Housing is a compilation of the best architectural designs for shared and social housing in a city or urban environment, where aesthetics are integral, and utilization of space imperative. The projects featured come from cities around the world, both those known for innovation in urban architecture, such as Tokyo, London and Barcelona, and those aspiring to world-class status. The book provides an illuminating look at the future of our urban landscapes. Architectural plans and drawings are featured alongside renderings and photographs of the completed housing projects. The text accompanying the images provides further insight into the design, execution and consideration of the space. The designers and architects featured were often constrained by existing structures, small or awkward plots of land and strict city codes. But as the abundance of images in Collective Housing show, these restrictions only heightened their creative sensibilities.

Landscape Design examines innovations and inventiveness in current landscape architecture. The book features a variety of projects from around the world, including commercial properties, private residences, and government and public buildings. Local environments have been highly considered by the designers, and have thus played a large role in the plant life, building materials, use of space, and topographical elements. Many of the landscape projects use sculpture, water features and unique materials to blur the lines between landscape architecture and installation art. As a compilation of some of the worlds best landscape designers, Landscape Design will provide any student, firm or individual working in the field with insight and inspiration into current practices and constructions of outdoor spaces. The projects featured will make you reconsider your idea of what is possible in the field.

Whether trophy or status symbol, comfort or escape, books can have profound meaning in our lives. As a result, how we store them can take on importance. Bookshelf Design examines the most creative storage solutions of recent years by an international cast of industrial and furniture designers. In some, the books are hidden or not immediately recognizable, in others they take center stage and even interact with the design to create the finished composition. The definition of “bookshelf” is expanded to include, chairs, tables and even lamps that function as storage. There are a myriad of ways to shelve a book, but chances are, youve never thought of these.

Throughout history, in fables and even in pop culture, every underdog has possessed one vital asset that led to their success: passion. The same can be said about the art and apparel brand Zerofriends.

Originally consisting of a small group of imaginative artists who shared the same desire to create obscure, unique, and borderline demented artwork, Zerofriends has grown into an art and apparel brand whose creativity has gained worldwide recognition. This is due in large part to the collective artists’ uncompromising approach to their work and the completely DIY operation of the business that has sprouted from the collective passion of the artists involved.

Zerofriends showcases the fine artists and illustrators who have played a major role in establishing the Zerofriends brand as one of the most unique and inspiring collections in the industry. Featured artists include Alex Pardee, Tara McPherson, Greg “Craola” Simkins, Skinner, Dave Correia, Robert Bowen, Jon Wayshak, Jason Edmiston, and others.
