Delight a child with a colourful crocheted or knitted Octo. Octos' twisty tentacles are calming and comforting - and they feel a bit like mum's umbilical cord. THE DANISH OCTO BOOK is the official book on the adorable knitted and crocheted octopus puppets that have become a huge phenomenon in Denmark and is now spreading like wildfire across the globe. With tentacles reminding babies and young children of an umbilical cord, what started as a means to soothe and calm premature babies in hospitals has now become a natural presence in lots of Danish homes, and turned into an unstoppable movement with Octo groups forming all over the world. But this is only the beginning. With the octopuses having showed similar effects with older babies, the Octo movement is about to reach a whole new magnitude. It all started with one octopus-obsessed dad who, when his daughter was born premature, got hold of a small octopus-shaped puppet for her. At the hospital, people soon noticed that the little girl was clutching onto the puppet's tentacles, looking calmer and more secure. It didn't take long till two volunteers started crocheting similar puppets for the neonatal units at three hospitals. This is how the Danish Octo Project was born. Today, this association of volunteers has many ambassadors in the country, supplying Octos for babies at every hospital in Denmark. THE DANISH OCTO BOOK tells the story of this fascinating international phenomenon, but also contains lots of cute and inspiring knitting and crocheting patterns to help parents and guardians make their own octopuses. Written in collaboration with The Danish Octo Project, this small, lovely book is the original and official book on this new movement. Combining the Danish way of life with the mindfulness of knitting, this is the ideal book for parents, grandparents, and all those who want to cultivate their meditative passion for knitting, while at the same time creating the ultimate loving gift for a child.

Have you been tinkering with mosaics for a while, but feel that you need to take it to the next level? Or are you a beginner looking for a challenge? Then this is the book you need.

Starting out as a textile designer, the author recognises how important the choice of design is when you start a mosaic project. This book will teach you how to choose the right design and translate it into a template, allowing you to 'paint' with the mosaic tiles. The technical information supplied will guide you through the selection process of the right design, teach you about the various tiles available, surfaces to work on and which ones to choose for which conditions, materials and tools needed as well as the different mosaic techniques that can be used to complete your project. You will also find suggestions for alternatives if supplies are hard to find in your area. The step-by-step projects are lovely and can be followed exactly, but the author urges crafters to make the projects their own and bring their own personality into them by playing around with colours and texture. The projects include big and small items for the home or to give as gifts, with alternative ideas and suggestions if you prefer a different look or feel.

Impressionism is one of the world's most popular and well-known art movements. Originated by a group of 19th-century artists based in Paris, they were seen as the rebels of their time. The paintings that came out of this period have become some of the most well-loved artworks in existance today. The most famous Impressionist of them all has to be Claude Monet. This inspiring new colouring book produced in conjunction with the Thyssen art museum in Madrid features some of his most famous paintings including The Water Lily Pond and Woman with a Parasol. Featured is also work by other famous Impressionists including Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh, Manet, Slevogt, Pissarro, Liebermann, Gauguin, Morisot, Cezanne, Sisley and Israels. You are invited to add your own touch of colour to intricate illustrations of paintings such as Monet's Tulip Fields in Holland, Degas' Woman in the Bath, Gauguin's Washerwomen at Pont-Arles, Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party and Van Gogh's The Langlois Bridge at Arles.

Hierdie boek neem jou verby die tradisionele voorkoms van ligte, sagte en bykans deurskynende waterverfwerk. Leer hoe om ryk, lewendige beelde te skep nie net met waterverf op papier nie, maar ook met ander mediums en materiaal. Jy behou die waterige gevoel, maar versterk en verbreed die moontlike tekstureringseffek. Die projekte toon hoe verskeie watermediums op bekende dog onkonvensionele maniere gebruik kan word. Verf, ink, kleurpotlode en lapkleursel vorm die kleurkomponent, terwyl tekstuurmediums deel van die repertoire uitmaak. Heelwat projekte is op waterverfpapier, maar skilderdoek, karton en velyn of natrekpapier kom ook voor. Daar is baie eenvoudige gestruktureerde tegnieke wat stap-vir-stap gevolg kan word om 'n baie soortgelyke voorkoms te skep vir handwerkprojekte. Maar lesers word ook aangemoedig om met meer spontane en minder gekontroleerde tegnieke (ook stapsgewys geillustreer) hulle eie skeppende weg te volg en avontuurlustig te wees, risiko's te loop en met hulle gelukkige 'ongelukke' te werk. Minder suksesvolle werk kan op baie verskillende maniere ingespan word en die boek bevat idees oor hoe sulke werk met nuwe kunswerk geinkorporeer kan word. Water-(verf-)kuns is propvol wonderlike idees vir kunstenaars en handwerkers en selfs groentjies sal wil saamspeel en eksperimenteer.

**SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER** **RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK** The Hare with Amber Eyes meets The History of the World in 100 Objects: an eloquent history of the language of sewing. For the mothers of the disappeared in 1970s Argentina, protest was difficult. Every Thursday they marched in front of government buildings wearing headscarves embroidered with the names of their lost children. Through sewing, they found a way to campaign. In Tudor England Mary, Queen of Scots was under house arrest and her letters were censored, so she sewed secret treason into her needlework to communicate with the world outside. From the political propaganda of the Bayeux Tapestry and First World War soldiers with PTSD, to the maps sewn by schoolgirls in the New World, Threads of Life stretches from medieval France to contemporary Mexico, from a POW camp in Singapore to a family attic in Scotland. It is a chronicle of identity, protest, memory, power and politics told through the stories of the men and women, over centuries and across continents, who have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard, even in the most desperate of circumstances. In an eloquent blend of history and memoir, Threads of Life is an evocative and moving book about the need we all have to tell our story. 'Threads of Life is a beautifully considered book . . . Clare Hunter mixes the personal with the political with moving results.' TRACY CHEVALIER
