Then, on the eve of war, a film crew arrives in her coastal town. She falls in love. The consequences are devastating. Penniless, denied access to her son, and completely unequipped to fend for herself, she finds herself adrift in wartime London with her lover, documentary filmmaker Dougie Birdsall.

The world stands on the brink of an environmental crisis and the scale of the problem is daunting. But if everyone played their part, the cumulative benefit to the environment would be far-reaching. And where better to start than in our own homes? A must-have reference book with the most up-to-date information, plus inspirational photographs, Eco proves that sustainability in the home is both achievable and beautiful. In the first part, Design, Elizabeth Wilhide focuses on the fundamentals to be considered, whether you are planning home improvements or building a house from scratch. These include siting, construction, energy efficiency, water and waste, gardening, and landscaping. Fifteen case studies demonstrate how architects from around the world have tackled these issues and succeeded in creating sustainable yet aspirational, liveable homes. The second part, Surfaces and Finishes, provides an illustrated directory of the materials and surface finishes that are available to the eco-conscious homeowner, ranging from wood, bamboo, paper, and natural fibers to stone, linoleum, glass, metal, recycled plastic, and concrete. Finally, In Practice offers strategies for eco-living that deliver maximum benefit with minimal changes of lifestyle. These are strategies--reducing consumption, repairing rather than replacing, recycling wherever possible--that everyone can adopt, whatever sort of home you live in. Whether you follow Eco to the letter or adopt a more piecemeal approach, you can relax in the knowledge that every little bit counts. You will enjoy lower fuel bills and fewer allergy-related illnesses, but above all, you will be helping to make the world a healthier place for future generations

The Mackintosh style : design and decor by Elizabeth Wilhide( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mackintosh Style celebrates the work of one of the most influential figures in modern design. Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Scotland's greatest architect and designer, was remarkable for the wide range of his achievements and the clarity of his vision. His work - from architectural masterpieces on a public and domestic scale to innovative interior decorations and designs for furniture to the most delicate household utensils - is of exceptional elegance and refinement, revealing an incomparable talent of great originality." "Mackintosh was ahead of his time - too far ahead to reap the rewards of his genius. In a brief career, dogged by disappointment and lack of recognition, Mackintosh created the first masterpiece of modern architecture: the Glasgow School of Art, a building which expresses all the vibrant creativity of his home city at the turn of the century. His design of family houses shows a practicality as well as beauty, while the tearoom interiors he created for his patron, Miss Cranston, display the exquisite perfection of detail that characterized his work." "From tiles to wrought ironwork, tables to the arranging of flowers, knives and forks to fireplaces, Mackintosh concerned himself with every aspect of architecture and decoration, dissolving conventional boundaries between art, craft, and design."--BOOK JACKET

This book takes a close look at the key developments, movements and practitioners of design around the world, from the beginnings of industrial manufacturing to the present day. Organized chronologically, it locates design within its technological, cultural, economic, aesthetic and theoretical contexts. From the high-minded moralists of the 19th century to the radical thinkers of modernism the book provides in-depth coverage of a subject that touches all our lives. Iconic works that mark significant steps forward or that characterize a particular era or approach - such as Marcel Breuer's Wassily chair of 1925, Eliot Noyes' corporate identity work for IBM in the 1950s and Matthew Carter's Verdana typeface, designed to be read on screen - are analysed in detail, while the text sets out the framework of ideas, intent and technology within which differing approaches to design have evolved. From the cars we drive and the products we buy to the graphics that surround us, we are all consumers of design
