In July 1935, Robert Atkinson and John Ainslie set out on an ornithological search for the rare Leach's Fork-tailed Petrel. Their search was to last for twelve years and to take them from their Oxford base to many of the remote and often deserted islands off the North West coast of Scotland (including North Uist, the Monarch Isles and St Kilda), to an almost inaccessible North Rona and, their search rewarded, beyond. Robert Atkinson's account of his twelve year adventure provides a detailed and emotive description of the wildlife and landscape of the Hebridean outlanders. He recounts with clarity his first sighting of a puffin, 'So brand new was this unique first insight of puffins ... they might have been of fresh creation: bright fantastic dolls but alive!', and explains in detail the effort entailed in reaching the most inaccessible of islands. But more than that he records with compassion the primitive lifestyles of the islanders, their living conditions, traditions and histories and notes too the changes they witnessed as the war years came and went. His writing has inspired many of the later accounts of Hebridean travel. Atkinson's account of his travels has established itself as one of the greatest of all memoirs of sailing in the Hebrides.

Composites. We hardly ever think about them, but we use them everyday. We play, work, fly, ride, eat, wear and build with them. We find them literally everywhere, in skis, surfboards, motor helmets, bicycles, canoes, and silverware. Formula 1 couldn't do without them. In fact, the car and motor industry, the space industry, the aeronautics industry, the building industry, the army, and the medical world can't make much without their material magic. Despite their indispensability, the creation and development of composites is hardly known. From Bakelite to Composite aims to correct this oversight by presenting the history of composites and their various types, processing techiniques and applications in the design and styling of masses of consumer goods. More than 200 illustrations reveal the strength, durability, and lightness of composites as found in furniture, lighting, sporting equipment, cars, and also artworks by Panamarenko, Tony Cragg, Niki de Saint-Phalle, and others. Published in cooperation with the Design Museum, Ghent. Essays by Lieven Daenens, Moniek Bucquoye, Ignaas Verpoest, Lut Pil, Vicki P. McConnell, Klaus Drechsler and Adriaan Beukers. Text in English and Dutch. 200 colour illustrations
