As well as new art technique books, whenever we find them we try to get in pre-loved art books. They aren't as common as you might think. I think artists must also be hoarders.
|A small selection of our art technique books|
|First Edition Joseph Conrad|
|1893 Strand Magazine with an original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle short story (sadly not a Sherlock Holmes!)|
As I've already said, we are always on the lookout for interesting books, so I'll keep updating this page when I find something good.
At the moment we also have a range of contemporary "holiday" reading, but they are going quite quickly.
If you are looking for a gift for someone who likes literature and books, we also stock literature and music orientated gifts and cards.
- Secret Garden. They are a Norwegian keyboard player and an Irish violinist duo, who play a lot of their music with many different guest musicians and singers. Theirs is a haunting sound, often with a Celtic feel to it.
- Suade. They are a male a capella group from Melbourne. Their harmonies are great and their music has heaps of energy!
- Spiral Dance. They are an Adelaide based band, producing what they describe as mystical and mythical music.
- E-Type Jazz. This is another Adelaide based group, and as their name suggests, play and sing all the smooth jazz standards.
- Cotters Bequest. They are a Lenswood (Adelaide Hills) traditional Celtic group.
- Carisma. This is a beautiful, Queensland based, trio of harp, cello and flute.
- Kobya. Kobya is a Byron Bay based singer of traditional southern African music. His favoured Reggae sound seems to sneak in a bit on some of his albums.
- Chanson. This is a now defunct trio of harp, cello and flute, although two of their members form 2/3 of Carisma. Their album "White Chocolate" (what a great title!) is a mixture of jazz standards and more contemporary instrumentals. As its title suggests, it is very warm, smooth and comforting!
- We have a large selection of the Putumayo CDs of world music, including their range especially for children. To sample the music you can listen to any of their current stock on http://www.putumayo.com/en/
