In this work of historical speculation Terry Jones investigates the mystery surrounding the death of Geoffrey Chaucer over 600 years ago. A diplomat and brother-in-law to John of Gaunt - one of the most powerful men in the kingdom - Chaucer was celebrated as his country's finest living poet, rhetorician and scholar: the pre-eminent intellectual of his time. And yet nothing is known of his death In 1400 his name simply disappears from the record. We don't know how he died, where or when; there is no official confirmtion of his death and no chronicle mentions it; no notice of his funeral or burial. He left no will and there's nothing to tell us what happened to his estate. He didn't even leave any manuscripts. How could this be?;What if he was murdered? What if he and his writings had become politically inconvenient in the seismic social shift that occurred with the overthrow of the liberal Richard II by the reactionary, oppressive regime of Henry IV. Would the dogs of suppression, unleased by Archbishop Arundel, have been snapping at the heels of a dangerous poet?;Terry Jones' hypothesis is the introduction to a reading of Chaucer's writings as evidence that might be held against h

A founder of the leading design firm Pentagram, Alan Fletcher is considered by many in the graphic design world to be a contemporary master, known for his sharp and unerring sense of style. From the initial brief to the often award-winning outcome, here are over 100 of Fletcher's design solutions. Grouped into thematic chapters for instructive reference, the projects demonstrate Fletcher's lithe and lateral jumps, his skills and techniques and his ability to fuse interpretation, aesthetics and function with apparent ease. The commentary shows how each individual graphic idea was developed, giving insights both into the particular project and into the way in which the design process can be manipulated. Designed by Fletcher himself, Beware Wet Paint offers a vibrant description of an artist at work.

Alan Fletcher (1931 - 2006) is one of the most influential and respected figures in British design. Famous for the high profile work he created with Pentagram of which he was a co-founder, Fletcher became renowned as one of the most creative graphic designers on the British scene. "Anteaters to Zebras", created the year before his untimely death in 2006, is the first children's book by Alan Fletcher to be published in the UK. Originally designed with Fletcher's grandson in mind, this book is a creative, playful and witty introduction to the alphabet, expressing the pleasure he took in turning work and play into the same activity. Children and adults alike will delight in Fletcher's series of brightly coloured animals illustrating the letters of the alphabet and in his infectious sense of fun.
The Art of Looking Sideways is a primer in visual intelligence, an exploration of the workings of the eye, the hand, the brain and the imagination. It is an inexhaustible mine of anecdotes, quotations, images, curious facts and useless information, oddities, serious science, jokes and memories, all concerned with the interplay between the verbal and the visual, and the limitless resources of the human mind. Loosely arranged in 72 chapters, all this material is presented in a wonderfully inventive series of pages that are themselves masterly demonstrations of the expressive use of type, space, colour and imagery. This book does not set out to teach lessons, but it is full of wisdom and insight collected from all over the world. Describing himself as a visual jackdaw, master designer Alan Fletcher has distilled a lifetime of experience and reflection into a brilliantly witty and inimitable exploration of such subjects as perception, colour, pattern, proportion, paradox, illusion, language, alphabets, words, letters, ideas, creativity, culture, style, aesthetics and value. The Art of Looking Sideways is the ultimate guide to visual awareness, a magical compilation that will entertain and inspire all those who enjoy the interplay between word and image, and who relish the odd and the unexpected.
