Lungeing and Long-Reining is a step-by-step guide to training, exercising and suppling horses from the ground, written by Britain’s leading exponent of the art. Published in association with The British Horse Society the book begins with advice on handling untrained youngsters and works through a logical training progression, culminating in advanced dressage movements. Straightforward guidance is given on: Training foals and young horses Lungeing equipment and technique Introducing long-reins and early lateral work Backing and riding young horsesLungeing over poles and fences Advanced long-reining – including cantering, rein-back, shoulder-in, travers, half pirouettes, half-pass, renvers, canter half-pass, canter pirouettes and tempi flying changes Piaffe and passage Olympic dressage rider and trainer Jennie Loriston-Clarke has broken and schooled countless dressage and jumping horses, and initially uses lungeing and long-reining to establish the horse’s basic education and create mutual respect between horse and handler. The knowledge she has gained over the years while working with novices and older ‘difficult’ horses sent for retraining, is distilled in this book into simple instructions, so that others can avoid making costly mistakes when training their horses. The goal throughout is to produce a horse that is confident, keen and happy in his work – which should be the aim of every trainer. Illustrated with specially commissioned sequence photographs, this book will prove particularly valuable in the early training of young horses, as well as in improving or retraining older horses, and refining dressage movements in advance horses.

Perhaps the biggest change is the starting point that vegetarian food should above all taste good. And so in this creative collection there are recipes for tapas, wraps, salads, sauces, salsas, hot dishes using rice, quinoa, noodles and potatoes, bean stews, curries, soups, sandwiches and packed lunches, breads, porridges and mueslis and puddings.

2015 would have been the year the redoubtable Marguerite Patten celebrated her 100th birthday. Sadly, she died on the 4th June 2015, just five months short of her birthday. In her honour, Grub Street is reissuing a new edition of the first book we published by Marguerite back in 1999, her comprehensive Century of British Cooking. In this book, each chapter covers one decade of the 20th century giving both history and recipes. The entire book is illustrated throughout in colour and black and white. Marguerite Patten OBE wrote over 170 cookery books, sales of which amount to over 16 million worldwide. Her long and distinguished career, which began before the war, included regular appearances on radio and television, live and televised cookery demonstrations, lectures as well as extensive journalism and authorship of books and cookery cards. Marguerite was one of Britain’s best known and loved cookery writers and has often been described as England’s Cookery Queen. Ainsley Harriott dubbed her “the cookery icon of our times”. Her Century of British Cooking pulls together her life’s work, with over 200 recipes and is truly an important work of culinary history.

Into the Blue is widely regarded as a literary classic. Originally published in 1929, and 44 years since its latest publication, Grub Street reintroduces you to Norman Macmillan’s insightful and gripping book about his experiences as a pilot during the First World War. Wing Commander Norman Macmillan, OBE, MC, AFC, DL, was born on 9 August 1892 in Glasgow. After serving sixteen months in the Highland Light Infantry, he joined the RFC in 1916. He learned to fly at Netheravon, and in 1917 went to 45 Squadron on 1½ Strutters. Norman flew many missions on this type and claimed two victories before 45 were re-equipped with Camels in August 1917; Norman then gained his first Camel victory in the same month they arrived. On 11th September he twice claimed Fokker Triplanes out of control during two separate engagements in the space of a few minutes. Macmillan went on to claim nine victories in all. After being injured in an unfortunate accident on 6th January 1918 he did not see further combat and returned to England to become a flight instructor. After his experience in the First World War, he was closely associated with flying for many years and also became an enthusiastic writer of aviation books; of which, Into the Blue is the best. In 1925 Norman was the first person to make an emergency landing at Heathrow, which was then a row of cottages. During World War Two he became wing commander war correspondent, before retiring to Cornwall, where he became Deputy Lord Lieutenant of that county. Norman died on 5 August 1976 aged 83. Norman Macmillan was decorated with the Military Cross for conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in 1918 and was also later awarded the prestigious Air Force Cross.

In a departure from the realm of pure chromatic design, this surprising new volume in Viction:ary’s bestselling Palette series investigates the use of transparency in design. From crystal clear translucency through a full range of opaque treatments, designers use the latest in materials and printing techniques to create interest and mystery. From the whimsical to the ingenuous, the designs conceal or reveal, incorporating color, pattern and typography in this interplay of layers. Some are interactive, requiring the participation of the consumer or even light itself to produce the desired effect. Other designs quietly demonstrate their visual power, appealing to our innate sense of wonder. This volume includes a diverse assemblage of examples from the fields of architecture, fashion, print, product, packaging design and more.
