Author: Betty Soldi
Modern calligraphy has taken social media by storm and inspired thousands of people to put pen to paper and get involved with ink. For years, handwriting has been in danger of becoming lost to keyboards and smartphones, with few of us picking up a pen to do much more than scrawl a shopping list or take hasty notes in meetings so, for professional calligrapher Betty Soldi, this increase in interest is welcome. In Inkspired, Betty encourages you to reconnect with handwriting and discover the calming, creative joy of calligraphy. The book contains guidelines and practice pages, and its calligraphy-friendly paper and unique lie-flat binding mean you can write straight into the book with ease. Once you have had a go at her own `Alphabetty' of calligraphic letters, you are encouraged to develop your own individual style, with a section of projects, from invitations to writing on crockery. Learn to embrace mistakes, play around with new ideas - Betty encourages practising not just with pen and paper, but writing on mirrors in lipstick or etching messages into a plant leaf - and express yourself with beautiful lettering and flourishes. Betty's mantra is `Practice makes progress', and with her infectious enthusiasm and invaluable guidance, even the most inexperienced of inkers will find their scribbles transformed.
Practical guide teaches elegant 18th-century writing style. Each letterform demonstrated stroke by stroke with clear explanation. Write quotations, poems, invitations, more. Numerous black-and-white illus. Bibliography.

The problem of otherness is central to debates in both the social sciences and theology. To define the other – by colour, gender, politics, nationality, or religion – is to define the self. Othering has been used through history as a justification for boundary-setting, for conflict and for oppression. Radical Otherness presents a broad overview of otherness in both sociology and theology. The book reveals how social theory can illuminate many contemporary issues in theology, whilst the examination of theological methods can shed light on problematic issues in sociology. The discussion of issues in Radical Otherness moves from the personal to the political, to the hermeneutic, to the ultimate otherness of metaphysics. At each stage, discussion of theory is grounded in concrete examples. The book offers students of ethics, theology, and sociology of religion a clear and engaged assessment of otherness, and opens up new ways for investigating a concept central to the study of both religion and society.

Sewing Machine Basics
Author: Jane Bolsover
Publisher: CICO Books
In the climate of “make do and mend,” sales of sewing machines have soared, but many are only accompanied by a difficult-to-understand technical manual. Here, Jane Bolsover provides a comprehensive guide for beginners. Starting with an essential overview of the sewing machine, learn how to thread it and wind bobbins, why tension is important, and which needles to choose. There's information on the basic sewing kit you will need, plus advice on which fabrics to choose and how to cut out. The chapters then build into a complete sewing course, and at the end of each chapter is a simple project to consolidate the skills you have just mastered. The projects include items for the home, including a cushion cover and a lampshade, stylish accessories, such as bags and scarves, plus great clothing basics, such as an A-line skirt and a simple shift dress. Also included at the back of the book are two full-size pull-out paper pattern sections.
No God in Sight
Author: Altaf Tyrewala
Publisher: Anchor Canada
Fast — paced and innovative, No God in Sight captures the seething multiplicity of Bombay through the first — person accounts of an abortionist, a convert, a pregnant refugee, a gangster in hiding, a butcher, and an apathetic CEO, among others. As the reader is hurtled from monologue to short story to anecdote, disparate lives collide in tantalizing ways. A family flees religious persecution in their village to take refuge in an urban slum; women walk the tightrope of free will and dormant violence; a father and son grant each other the relief of estrangement; and young men and women struggle to comprehend the consequences of sexual attraction. Insightful, ironic, and scathingly honest, No God in Sight is a brilliant debut by a talented young writer. From the Trade Paperback edition.
