World Atlas of Golf
By Mark Rowlinson
First published in 1976, The World Atlas of Golf has a unique place in golf literature as the first book to take a global view of the sport and the history and architects of course design. Now, re-written for the twenty-first century, this new format is a handy size, with expert guidance of the world's greatest courses. Written by an expert panel comprising of course designers, ex-tour pros, leading journalists and commentators from around the globe, The World Atlas of Golf covers the courses that are seminal in the history of the sport as well as those that simply demonstrate architectural brilliance. Sumptuous computer-generated artworks accompany each course, illustrating features in impressive detail, while 'cut away' illustrations of signature holes highlight their particular challenges and show the course architect's ingenuity.With feature pages that provide a thorough understanding of the golfing scene in every part of the world and maps showing the locations of key clubs, this is the book that will set the benchmark in golf publishing for the next 30 years.

Living with Books
By Alan Powers
This is an inspirational book that explores over 150 ways in which books can not only be stored, but made to play a full part in the character of a home, be it large or small, minimalist or full of cluttered charm. Books are among the commonest but most treasured possessions in a home, yet their storage and display is often neglected and not given serious consideration as part of the interior design - something all the more necessary as the functions of home and workplace now often merge. Chapters are devoted to separate rooms, looking in turn at reception rooms, home offices, and libraries, as well as kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms, with over 180 colour photographs from around the world providing a wealth of inspiration. Ingenious space-saving devices are illustrated for storing books in odd spaces within the home - for example in staircases, corridors, and hallways. There is a chapter on caring for books, plus practical pages providing useful technical hints for planning and building bookshelves (scale, proportion, materials, fittings, etc), complete with illustrated step-by-step instructions showing how to carry out your own imaginative book-storage projects.Special double-page features appear in each chapter on topics such as ingenious designer solutions, book plates, and creating furniture out of books.
