Celtic Tatted Leaves and Flowers (Revised 2014) This revised Edition includes The Leaves and Flowers in the original book plus patterns for a Celtic Poppy Flower and Leaf, Celtic Dragonfly, Stargazer Lily and Day Lily, Celtic Rosebuds, Star Flower, and a Celtic Rosebud Heart. The delicate intricacies of Celtic weaving and Celtic knot work form the basic shapes of this collection of tatting patterns. The interweaving and Celtic knot designs are reminiscent of the ancient Celtic stone carvings and metalwork artifacts, including ancient jewelry found in archaeological digs throughout Europe and the British Isles and the treasures of Celtic Christian monasteries' crosses and illustrations of ancient books now preserved for generations in museums.

Extreme Deviance

Most primary deviation is of transitory significance and involves a fairly insignificant punishment. Extreme Deviance focuses on behavior, beliefs, and traits that are so serious as to generate, in the words of Edwin Lemert, secondary deviation. Editors Erich Goode and D. Angus Vail tunnel to the core of the subject by emphasizing a set of central lessons, offering edgy, pedagogically dramatic illustrations of principles that are contained in no other collection of readings. The book is complete with vocabularies of motive, deviance neutralization, the acquisition of a deviant identity, and the formation of a deviance subculture.

Enter the plant world's heart of darkness--and discover it's beautiful, filled with luscious, deep tones to enrich any garden's color scheme.

Choose from an amazing array of annuals, biennials, and tender perennials; bulbs, corms, rhizomes, and tubers; hardy perennials; and even trees, shrubs, and grasses, all in an alphabetical directory with descriptions and growing information. Six easy-to-implement design schemes take you through the seasons, and from sun-loving to shade plants. A Selection of the Garden Book Club.

To make an animal "live" in a three-dimensional sculpture, you sometimes have to make it live in a two-dimensional drawing first. With carefully crafted illustrations as a guide, the animal's character will show, it will have realistic facial expressions, and its body language will be just right. No sculptor or model-maker can do without this detailed manual that covers the basic components--from trunks and limbs to paws and claws--of all kinds of animals. Collect and organize information on your animal, take measurements for reference images and modify them to suit your model, find out what materials to use and how to transfer shapes from the working drawing to the sculpture. Includes numerous photos and grids to follow.

50 New Milanese Lace Patterns

From the co-author of two previous Batsford lace titles comes a collection of 50 stunning lace patterns that showcase the delicate beauty of this ever-popular lace. Traditionally, the ornate braids that make up Milanese lace were used in long, convoluted floral patterns, but they are also easily adapted for use in more modern designs. This new book of patterns contains both traditional and modern examples, and the author experiments with different decorative styles - for example, Celtic lettering that is vibrant with the colours of original Celtic art, taken into a new dimension with the addition of Milanese braids. Exquisite miniatures in a Japanese style will be a challenge even for the most experienced lacemaker: the smallest patterns are not necessarily the easiest! Other patterns include flowers, scrolls, leaves and butterflies, plus some more unusual designs: dragons, a picture depicting the legend of Arion and the dolphin, and a spectacular piece featuring the mythical seven-headed Hydra. There is a good range of patterns, including both prickings and photographs of the finished pieces, suitable for abilities ranging from beginner to advanced.
