  • No-Trump Bidding

    By Mike Wenble, Sally Brock
    Authors:
    Mike Wenble, Sally Brock
    The aim of this book is to describe a complete and coherent method of partnership bidding after the opening bidder has announced a balanced hand. Balanced hands are more common than unbalanced hands, so it is important to be able to describe them accurately and efficiently - to show their precise strength and distribution. The scheme proposed here is independent of your bidding system, and so it can be adopted whether you play a natural system such as Acol or Standard American, or a Strong Club system or something more exotic.

    New Faux Finishes

    By 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.
