Dinner & Party

By Rose Prince
Authors:
Rose Prince
"Come Over..." Whether you're a beginner looking for simple, impressive recipes to feed friends and family, or a seasoned host hoping to inject your repertoire with stylish, interesting ideas, you'll find all you need in Dinner & Party.Rose's stance on entertaining is that the cook shouldn't be banished to the kitchen; cooking for guests needn't be fussy or hard to juggle, but instead made up of dishes - some classics, some novel - that can be prepared in advance, dressed up to impress last minute and enjoyed by everyone. Practicality is central to a book updating the etiquette for entertaining in our times. With this in mind, Part 1: Dinner showcases easy options for every course, all alongside thoughtful advice about how to source ingredients, when to begin preparation and how to serve. Meanwhile, Part 2: Party provides tried and tested catering ideas for larger groups, from indoor picnics, to standing parties and Christmas dinners.With sample menus, including an innovative guide to putting the right dishes together through the seasons, this is the friendly, practical guide to making entertaining easy in the 21st century, bringing everyone together.

Drawing The Human Body

By Giovanni Civardi
Authors:
Giovanni Civardi
Every artist longs to portray the human figure in all its expressiveness and sculptural beauty. To do so requires a well-balanced mix of science and creative vision, an understanding both of anatomy and each individual body¿s emotional eloquence. Overflowing with the sketches that capture a wondrous repertoire of angles and positions; pointers that, one by one, focus on all the details of the body; and close-ups that show emotion-packed expressions as well as precise musculature. Through his own expert illustrations, the author shows the male and female body from front, sideways and back, revealing typical proportions, and showing projections in frontal, lateral and dorsal, each part of the skeleton and each muscle. He comments on morphology of the head, neck shoulder and more; and offers a plethora of gestures and action positions.Every drawing is proof of how technique and imagination come together to create superb art.
