Het is oktober 1886 als Edgar Drake een vreemd verzoek van het Britse ministerie van Oorlog bereikt. Hij krijgt de opdracht om zijn vrouw en zijn rustige leventje in Londen vaarwel te zeggen en naar de jungle van Birma te reizen, waar een bijzondere Erard-vleugel gerepareerd moet worden. De piano is van Anthony Carroll, een arts in het Briste leger die er nogal onorthodoxe methoden op na houdt om de vrede te bewaren met de vijandige vorsten in de zuidelijke Shan-staten: door zijn liefde voor poëzie, muziek en studie met hen te delen. Voorlopig zorgt deze aanpak voor rust in het gebied, maar die roept tegelijkertijd vragen op bij Carrolls superieuren over zijn loyaliteit. Op zijn reis naar Birma - via Europa, de Rode Zee en India - ontmoet Edgar profeten en dieven, soldaten en verhalenvertellers, en een fascinerende vrouw die net zo ongrijpbaar blijkt te zijn als de arts. Op de grote rivieren en in de verlaten steden van Birma krijgt Edgar te maken met meer mysteries en gevaren dan hij zich ooit had kunnen voorstellen. Echo's van Heart of Darkness en The English Patient weerklinken in deze sensuele roman over mythes en bevlogenheid, passie en avontuur. "[...] prachtige evocaties van het Birmeese landschap.

The most impressive LEGO models often take careful planning (and lots of pieces), but with some inspiration, a little imagination, and a number of tried-and-true techniques, you too can turn bricks into a masterpiece.In The Art of LEGO® Design, author Jordan Schwartz explores LEGO as an artistic medium. This wide-ranging collection of creative techniques will help you craft your own amazing models as you learn to see the world through the eyes of some of the greatest LEGO builders. Each concept is presented with a collection of impressive models to spark your imagination—like fantastic dragons, futuristic spaceships, expressive characters, and elaborate dioramas. You’ll discover some of the inventive techniques that LEGO artists use to: –Create lifelike creatures from unusual elements like inside-out tires and minifigure capes –Design sleek cars without showing a single stud –Add ambience to dioramas with light bricks or LEDs –Craft eye-catching textures to create cobblestone roads and brick walls –Build sturdy, detailed, posable mechs and other figures –Add depth with forced perspective and interesting silhouettes Interviews with the talented builders behind many of the book’s models reveal their thoughts on the design process and what inspires them most.

Minecraft has sold more than one hundred million copies worldwide (about 25 million of those units for the PC and Mac). According to Mojang, since the beginning of 2016 Minecraft continues to average 53,000 copies sold per day. Microsoft bought Minecraft (and Mojang) in 2014 for $2.5 billion. In 2016, Microsoft released a version of Minecraft specifically for educators called MinecraftEdu that is used by thousands of teachers around the world. Minecraft for Makers explores the intersection of this creative and beloved electronic game with the real world. It gives readers the opportunity to take familiar objects from the game - such as blocks, jack o'lanterns, and mobs - and make real-world versions of them. Begin with simple crafting projects using wood, paint, and LEGOs. Then move up to projects that involve basic electronics with LEDs. And, finally, advance to Arduino microcontroller projects that teach programming skills and basic robotics. The skills build progressively on one another, from chapter to chapter, and the emphasis is on fun all the way! Chapters include: Basic Projects (Item Frame with Diamond Sword, LEGO Minecraft Block, Minecraft Chess Pieces) LED Projects (Glowing Minecraft Block, Glowstone Chandelier, Minecraft Chess Board) Arduino Projects (Minecraft Jack O'Lantern, Night and Day Clock, Robot Creeper)

Informed by the analytical practices of the interdisciplinary 'material turn' and social historical studies of childhood, Childhood By Design: Toys and the Material Culture of Childhood offers new approaches to the material world of childhood and design culture for children. This volume situates toys and design culture for children within broader narratives on history, art, design and the decorative arts, where toy design has traditionally been viewed as an aberration from more serious pursuits. The essays included treat toys not merely as unproblematic reflections of socio-cultural constructions of childhood but consider how design culture actively shaped, commodified and materialized shifting discursive constellations surrounding childhood and children. Focusing on the new array of material objects designed in response to the modern 'invention' of childhood-what we might refer to as objects for a childhood by design-Childhood by Design explores dynamic tensions between theory and practice, discursive constructions and lived experience as embodied in the material culture of childhood. Contributions from and between a variety of disciplinary perspectives (including history, art history, material cultural studies, decorative arts, design history, and childhood studies) are represented – critically linking historical discourses of childhood with close study of material objects and design culture. Chronologically, the volume spans the 18th century, which witnessed the invention of the toy as an educational plaything and a proliferation of new material artifacts designed expressly for children's use; through the 19th-century expansion of factory-based methods of toy production facilitating accuracy in miniaturization and a new vocabulary of design objects coinciding with the recognition of childhood innocence and physical separation within the household; towards the intersection of early 20th-century child-centered pedagogy and modernist approaches to nursery and furniture design; through the changing consumption and sales practices of the postwar period marketing directly to children through television, film and other digital media; and into the present, where the line between the material culture of childhood and adulthood is increasingly blurred.
