100 Top Houses from Down Under

I received this book as a gift, and I love it. Australia and New-Zealand has a lot of fantastic modern architecture, and this oversized book, is filled with fantastic pictures and covers residential architecture from beach houses on the gold coast to re-interpreted victorian terraces in the heart of Sydney.

This book is perhaps the best example of such layering I have seen this year. "Deus ex machine" is a literary term, a reference to a former movement of motorcyclists and the name of a thriving custom bike business with outposts in Australia, Indonesia and (soon) Venice, California. This book captures this cycle-driven zeitgeist in text and color photography.

Whether you are a cafe owner, a competitive barista, or an amateur enthusiast, The Professional Barista's Handbook written by Scott Rao is the most important resource you can have to improve your coffee-making skills. The book explains the science behind espresso and drip coffee brewing, how to pour latte art, how to evaluate equipment, and every other important aspect of making great espresso, drip coffee, and tea. No doubt that this is a book which covers everything and each topic is dealt with in great detail: percolation, dosing, the methods for levelling the ground coffee in the filter-holder, pressing and, it goes without saying, everything which has got to do with preparing an espresso and there is also a chapter on tea. The Professional Barista's Handbook is a must have coffee reference! Specifications * Format Hardcove * Size 17,5 x 25,5 cm * 100 Pages * 90 Images * Language English “When I began in the coffee business fourteen years ago, I read every book I could find about coffee. After reading all of those books, however, I felt as if I hadn’t learned much about how to make great coffee. My coffee library was chock-full of colourful descriptions of brewing styles, growing regions, and recipes, with a few almost-unreadable scientific books mixed in. I would have traded in all of those books for one serious, practical book with relevant information about making great coffee in a café. Fourteen years later, I still haven’t found that book. I know many other professionals as well as some obsessive nonprofessionals would like to find that same book I’ve been looking for. This book is my attempt to give it to them.“ Scott Rao Origin USA

  • It's always interesting to read about the 'troublemakers' (often artists) of the world!

In the works for ten years, Kings Way documents the early days of graffiti in Melbourne as never collected in one place before. Kings Way refers both to a prominent stretch of road in Melbourne, Australia, and to a "when we were kings" reminiscence of youthful, though not necessarily more innocent, days. Jam-packed with stunning images of works which have long since been buffed, covered, faded away or buildings demolished. Wonderful photographs you might not see anywhere else. A must have for the natives, and of interest to graffitophiles everywhere.

While on the march, she meets Joe Harman, an Australian POW who is driving trucks for the Japanese. He speaks fondly of the town of Alice Springs, which he frequented. Joe helps the ladies, and steals black chickens from the Japanese commander's flock for food and is punished by crucifixion. Jean assumed that he died. After the war, she relocates to England. Several years later, after she comes into a fortune, Jean returns to Malaysia to build a well and wash house for the village that sheltered her and friends for three years. There she discovers that Joe didn’t die and sets out to Australia to find him. Joe, in the meantime, has gone to London using earnings from a lottery to find Jean, after he discovers that she was not a married woman. They do find each other, and Jean relocates to Australia to recreate A Town Like Alice in dusty Willstown, the nearest town to Midhurst, where Joe ranches. Jean is a clerk/typist from England working for a leather goods company in Malaya when the story begins. Jean demonstrates resourcefulness and fortitude when a POW and later in the outback. When building a Town Like Alice in Willstown, she demonstrates a flair for entrenpreneurship. Joe, despite his machismo, encourages Jean in her entrepreneurial ventures. The story is narrated by Noel Strachan, who is trustee for Jean’s fortune. He is forty years older than Jean and became very fond of her, actually an unrequited love. I love a great romance, where the man and woman meet, are separated, and reunite despite overwhelming odds. I first loved the Masterpiece Theater TV series with Helen Morse and Bryan Brown. Then I happened upon the 1956 movie with Virginia McKenna and Peter Finch when it was shown on TCM recently. I knew it was time for me to read the book.
