Victorian London

Liza Picard
Authors:
Liza Picard

From rag-gatherers to royalty, from fish knives to Freemasons: everyday life in Victorian London.Like its acclaimed companion volumes, Elizabeth's London, Restoration London and Dr Johnson's London, this book is the product of the author's passionate interest in the realities of everyday life so often left out of history books. This period of mid Victorian London covers a huge span: Victoria's wedding and the place of the royals in popular esteem; how the very poor lived, the underworld, prostitution, crime, prisons and transportation; the public utilities - Bazalgette on sewers and road design, Chadwick on pollution and sanitation; private charities - Peabody, Burdett Coutts - and workhouses; new terraced housing and transport, trains, omnibuses and the Underground; furniture and decor; families and the position of women; the prosperous middle classes and their new shops, such as Peter Jones and Harrods; entertaining and servants, food and drink; unlimited liability and bankruptcy; the rich, the marriage market, taxes and anti-semitism; the Empire, recruitment and press-gangs. The period begins with the closing of the Fleet and Marshalsea prisons and ends with the first (steam-operated) Underground trains and the first Gilbert & Sullivan.

Marco Made Easy

Marco Pierre White
Authors:
Marco Pierre White

This book is all about creating beautiful and delicious food...without stress and without fuss. Marco Pierre White serves up more than 100 recipes and shows the home cook how to get big flavours from store-cupboard ingredients.The book has sections for starters, shellfish, fish, meat, poultry, desserts, and Marco uses bottles, jars and packets to make divine sauces, syrups and dressings. Olive oil, honey, mustard, soy sauce, vinegar, Hellmann's, Heinz and Knorr - they are all on the lists of ingredients here. And the three main ingredients of Marco Made Easy are: Simple, Fast and Fun. 'It'll take longer to wash the dishes,' he says, 'than it will to make them.'Tomato ketchup helps to make Salmon Ketchup; that bottle of Lea and Perrins brings life to the sauce for peppered steak; and beef casserole is transformed by a can (or two) of Guinness mixed with a carton of prune juice. Desserts, too, require little skill. Jamaican Mess, made with bananas, shop-bought custard and Carnation caramel sauce - is creamy, rich and swee. Who could say no? Beautiful photographs of each stunning dish enable the reader to copy the master chef¿s presentation: you don't need to be an artist. As Marco says of this revolutionary cook book, `It's for anyone who loves food but hates aggro'.'

New Faux Finishes

H. John Johnson
Authors:
H. John Johnson

Thankfully, the days of all white walls and monochromatic furnishings are over; the new trend in home design is all about colour, depth, and texture. Faux finishes deliver these qualities and more: they also add depth, drama, and a lifetime of beauty to your home. By using sponges, rags, feathers, paper, and burlap, as well as brushes and rollers on your walls and ceilings, you can simulate that appearance of bamboo cloth, antique mouldings, even formal wallpaper, while energising your interiors. From colour selection and preparing to paint mixing, application and cleanup, the author walks you through every step of the rolling, stippling, colour layering, and other remarkably simple ¿ and surprisingly fun ¿ decorative painting techniques that imbue your rooms with New Age elegance or Old World charm.

Every one of the dozens of fresh and fabulous ideas here can be implemented in a flash...with great results. Beguiling colour photos exhibit novel notions for displaying containers and textiles; adorning the walls and windows; bringing Mother Nature into the home; setting up warm and wonderful lighting effects; and adding a host of other minor details. Fill an urn with feathers, not flowers; use colourful sachet bags (in a fluted bowl) as decorative elements; drape vintage scarves over furniture and layer doilies of various sizes over a table top; tie back curtains with tassels; and sponge metallic paint on to a wall trim. Great, easy concepts so you will have more time to enjoy the beauty and splendour of your home.
