Catherine Cooper,Ron Cooper: The Golden Acorn

The Golden Acorn


When Jack Brenin finds a golden acorn lying in the grass little does he know that it is the beginning of a thrilling and magical adventure. Just an ordinary boy, Jack has been chosen for a hugely important task, and enters a world he believed only existed in legend. Full of twists and turns, talking ravens and mischievous Spriggans, The Golden Acorn is a hugely entertaining and exciting tale from a very talented new author. This wonderful story, the first of a five book series, deservedly won the Brit Writers' Awards 2010 for unpublished writers. Written for children aged 8-11, the Jack Brenin series has garnered a cult following among its young readers. The adventure continues in Glasruhen Gate.

This book is a practical primer to looking at architecture and all the elements that are included in buildings, from cornices and friezes to columns and porticos - all facets of buildings are included. Each chapter takes an architectural element and looks at its variety across various historical periods and geographical locations. Examples are shown through dozens of fine engravings with extended captions, creating a dip-in read and an effective I-Spy guide. Additional sections look at the clues offerred by history, geography and religion (with a timeline showing how and where architectural elements have been introduced), and at the significance of the ornaments. Everyone has an idea of their own dream home, whether it be a minimally furnished apartment overlooking a city skyline or an informal and colourful retreat in the sun. Whatever your dream, this bestselling book - now available in paperback for the Cats Stained Glass Coloring Book free ebook first time - presents 100 inspirational interiors of all styles from around the globe, from New England to Mallorca and from Provence to South Africa. Alongside the work of many of the world's most talented interior designers are homes that have been imaginatively transformed by the vision and commitment of their owners. "Dream Homes" features 100 inspirational homes, the key characteristics of which are compellingly described by leading interiors writer Johanna Thornycroft and stunningly illustrated with over 800 photographs by world-renowned interiors photographer Andreas von Einsiedel.
