This comprehensive, hands-on guide to interior design from Cullman & Kravis, a prominent New York decorating firm, offers a broad spectrum of solutions for integrating architecture, art, and antiques into living spaces that are comfortable, functional, and stylish. As Ellie Cullman writes reassuringly in her introduction: "If the very thought of decorating your home sends you into a tailspin, you can relax. Creating a beautiful, comfortable environment is not a simple process, but it need not be an overwhelming experience." In this generously illustrated handbook, Mrs. Cullman and her colleague and co-author Tracey Pruzan share the basic principles followed by Cullman & Kravis when they work with clients, whether they are renovating an existing house or building a new one. The authors clearly demonstrate that decorating a home is a rational process that can be followed by anyone willing to learn. Step by step, they answer the questions and solve the problems associated with every type of project, illustrating the explanations with case studies of actual designs, hundreds of tips, and full-color photographs of completed rooms and details of wall surfaces, rugs, and textiles.

Colette peters, the celebrated queen of the confectionary arts, unveils an inspiring resource for serious home bakers, professional chefs, and aficionados of Colette's incredible edible architecture. The ingenious cake decorator - whose miraculous and luscious concoctions have appeared everywhere from White House Christmases to royal weddings - presents a master class in cake design and decoration, alongside an all-new selection of her own cake designs. With Cakes to Dream On, Colette's inspired creations can now be rendered into show-stopping cakes of your own. Cakes to Dream On reveals the secrets to fashioning gorgeous and utterly distinctive cakes for all occasions - whether it's an opulent marriage reception (the majestic Ivory Wedding Cake) or a fanciful children's party (the whimsical Homage to Dr. Seuss). Colette presents designs for cake architecture ranging from the imperial splendor of Dolce de Medici, to the elegant grace of Bride's Vintage Cameo, to the topsy-turvy daydream of Mad Tea Party. Colette begins with the foundations: she illuminates step by step the process of constructing a multitiered cake, from determining serving sizes and choosing appropriate cake pans to making fillings, and ultimately stacking layers so they don't tumble off the table. Cakes to Dream On also discloses insider tricks of the trade: Colette's easy-to-follow instructions in techniques such as sugarwork, gumpaste, brush embroidery, and piping will help readers recreate the spectacular effects of this singular confectioner's toolbox. Bakers - and their enthusiastic audiences - will discover that these sensual masterpieces tantalize the palate as much as they do the eye. Colette's cake recipes include the Coco-Loco Cake, an alluring marriage of coconut and coffee; the Meringue Buttercream and its luscious lemon, raspberry, and mocha variants; and the ambrosial caramel-tinged Heavenly White Cake. As breathtaking as Colette's cake works appear, her clear explanations of technique are meant to stimulate readers' creative instincts and give them ideas for crafting their own distinctive confections. With more than 150 dazzling full-color photographs illustrating both processes and finished presentations, and more detailed instruction than ever before, Cakes to Dream On will inspire readers to create their own mouthwatering masterpieces. Colette's master class is truly a launchpad for cake lovers' own confectionary visions.

First published in 1994, Flytyer's Masterclass showcases the talents of British fly-tyer Oliver Edwards. Using his excellent knowledge of entomology and recognising specific characteristics of each species of fly he is creating, Edwards has developed his trademark of ultra realistic flies which are highly regarded for their near perfect imitation to the natural. Featuring patterns for the baetis nymph, ephemerella nymph, rhyacophila larva, and Klinkhamer special. For this new edition the publisher has commissioned new photographs by Terry Griffiths which depict each fly in stunning detail. It has been produced in a hardback spiral-bound format so that the book may be opened flat for use at the vice. A fine de luxe leather-bound edition, limited to only 120 copies, was produced simultaneously by The Flyfisher's Classic Library. Each de luxe copy carries a real fly tied by the author and set inside a bespoke mount within the front board. "It is a really seminal book by probably the greatest fly-tyer of our generation." (Magnus Angus).
