Patina Style Book Review:

The Giannettis have developed a home design style that embraces age, patina, weathered and worn surfaces, and rough surfaces. Patina Style is a color palette, a romance with subtlety, an attraction to natural materials and architectural details. It is at once old-world, contemporary, and mildly industrial. Patina Style gives insight into materials choices, methods and treatments that result in spaces that celebrate beauty in the old, the imperfect, the slightly roughed-up.

Patina Book Review:

When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, the world reacted with shock on seeing residents of this distinctive city left abandoned to the floodwaters. After the last rescue was completed, a new worry arose—that New Orleans’s unique historic fabric sat in ruins, and we had lost one of the most charming old cities of the New World. In Patina, anthropologist Shannon Lee Dawdy examines what was lost and found through the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. Tracking the rich history and unique physicality of New Orleans, she explains how it came to adopt the nickname “the antique city.” With innovative applications of thing theory, Patina studies the influence of specific items—such as souvenirs, heirlooms, and Hurricane Katrina ruins—to explore how the city’s residents use material objects to comprehend time, history, and their connection to one another. A leading figure in archaeology of the contemporary, Dawdy draws on material evidence, archival and literary texts, and dozens of post-Katrina interviews to explore how the patina aesthetic informs a trenchant political critique. An intriguing study of the power of everyday objects, Patina demonstrates how sharing in the care of a historic landscape can unite a city’s population—despite extreme divisions of class and race—and inspire civil camaraderie based on a nostalgia that offers not a return to the past but an alternative future.

The English Country House Garden Book Review:

'This book will inspire and delight … the stories of these gardens so compellingly captured by George Plumptre make the reader stop and tarry awhile, marvelling at the energy, the vision and the passion of the people who created gardens such as Hidcote, Sissinghurst and Great Dixter.' (The English Garden) 'A feast of horticulture and Englishness.' (House & Garden) 'Tells the tale of the English Country House Gardens over the past 500 years expertly and informatively.' (Countryside Magazine) 'Sure to become a classic.' (Garden Design Journal) Gardening Book of the Year 2014 (Daily Telegraph) Revised and updated edition. There is something special about the English country house garden: from its quiet verdant lawns to its high yew hedges, this is a style much-desired and copied around the world. The English country house is most often conceived as a private, intimate place, a getaway from working life. A pergola, a sundial, a croquet lawn, a herbaceous border of soft planting; here is a space to wander and relax, to share secrets, and above all to enjoy afternoon tea. But even the most peaceful of gardens also take passion and hard work to create. This new book takes a fresh look at the English country house garden, starting with the owners and the stories behind the making of the gardens. Glorious photographs capture the gardens at their finest moments through the seasons, and a sparkling and erudite text presents twenty-five gardens - some grand, some personal, some celebrated, some never-before-photographed - to explore why this garden style has been so very enduring and influential. From the Victorian grandeur of Tyntesfield and Cragside, to the Arts & Crafts simplicity of Rodmarton Manor and Charleston; from Scampston, in the same family since the 17th century, to new gardens by Dan Pearson and Tom Stuart-Smith; and with favourites such as Hidcote and Great Dixter alongside new discoveries, this book will be a delicious treat for garden-lovers.

Barbets the Best Kept Secret of the Dog World Book Review:

Never heard of a Barbet? That's no surprise, because this rare breed is still a hidden treasure. Dog lovers are only starting to discover all that's great about this calm, clever, and charming purebred. Barbets have it all-in a medium-sized, allergy-friendly package. A versatile and sturdy breed that once graced the palaces and marshes of France, the Barbet is considered the ancestor of the Poodle and Portuguese Water Dog. However, the Barbet's numbers dwindled to near-extinction before dedicated breeders staged its comeback. In Barbets: The Best Kept Secret of the Dog World, Pam Headon draws on her extensive breeding experience to shine a spotlight on this canine gem. A long-time fan of Portuguese Water Dogs, Headon calls the Barbet a "decaffeinated" version of the spirited Portie or a "non-shedding Golden Retriever." Owners wholeheartedly agree that the Barbet is a wonderful companion dog. This primer covers all the essentials: finding a reputable breeder, required health checks, care, training and grooming. Headon also describes her journey, complete with an insider's look at the complicated world of dog breeding. Beautiful photos and warm testimonials will make you wonder how this amazing breed has remained a secret for so long. Pam Headon grew up among dogs and horses on an Ontario hobby farm. She began breeding Portuguese Water Dogs in 1998 and Barbets in 2006. Her conscientious, humane, and effective program has made her a leading breeder of Barbets in North America.
