    AN ATLAS OF COUNTRIES THAT DONT EXIST

    Title: AN ATLAS OF COUNTRIES THAT DONT EXIST
    Author: MIDDLETON NICK
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

    Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton takes us on a magical tour of countries that, lacking diplomatic recognition or UN membership, inhabit a world of shifting borders, visionary leaders and forgotten peoples.

    Most of us think we know what a country is, but in truth the concept is rather slippery. From Catalonia to the Crimea, and from Africa's last colony to the European republic that enjoyed just a solitary day of independence, the places in this book may lie on the margins of legitimacy, but all can be visited in the real world.

    Beautifully illustrated by fifty regional maps, each shadowy country is literally cut out of the page of this book. Alongside stories, facts and figures, this Atlas brings to life a dreamlike world of nations that exist only in the minds of the people who live there.

    Get the buzz on bees with up-close and personal, stunning photographs of more than a hundred species.If a bee flies near you or if it lands on your arm, you might want to run away as fast as you can. Or maybe you freeze and hope the bee moves on quickly. No matter your strategy, one thing is certain: you're probably not appreciating the bee's fascinating beauty.

    But you're missing out! Bees are stunning to observe up close. Aliens or robots might come to mind when you gaze into a blue face with two giant, shiny black eyes. (That's right, bees can be blue, green, and red, too).

    In Bees, the photography of Sam Droege and the USGS presents more than 100 of the most eye-catching varieties of bees found throughout the world. While bee nerds may appreciate the common honey bee or the rare Andrena violae, others can simply enjoy the wide selection of different body shapes, head configurations, unique antennae, and the stories that accompany them.The next time a bee joins your picnic, you might find yourself staring!

    He's the sort of actor who can do Hamlet and Charlie's Angels in the same year. He shuns managers and agents and once agreed to voice the part of Garfield because he mistakenly believed it was a Coen brothers film. Bill Murray's extraordinary career is rich with fascinating anecdotes, contradictions, and mystery, from his early success on Saturday Night Live and the biggest blockbusters of the 1980s (Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Ghostbusters) to his reinvention as a hipster icon in the early 21st century (in films like Lost in Translation and Moonrise Kingdom). And now you can get your fill of Bill: part biography, part critical appreciation, part love letter, and all fun, The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray chronicles every single Murray performance in loving detail, relating all the milestones, yarns, and controversy in the life of this beloved but enigmatic performer. These pages are packed with color film stills, extraordinary fan art, and behind-the-scenes photography.

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The inside story of The Doug Anthony All Stars then and now. The no-holds-barred true story behind how the bad boys of Australian comedy reunited - weaker, sicker, funnier, older...but not wiser.

    Under the guise of his alter ego Flacco, Paul Livingston once basked in the reflected glory of Tim Ferguson, Paul McDermott and Richard Fidler, and their anarchic comedy incarnation, the Doug Anthony All-Stars. At their peak D.A.A.S. teetered on international greatness, and Paul teetered with them, until that teeter was abruptly toppled in 1994.

    Flacco and Paul now find themselves wrenched out of comfortable but obscure retirement to tread the boards again with Tim Ferguson and Paul McDermott - but this time as part of D.A.A.S., playing to sell-out crowds across Australia.

    As a fly on the pungent walls of D.A.A.S. dressing-rooms over the decades, Paul Livingston has lived and played alongside these men, probing their depths and shallows. In D.A.A.S.: Their Part in My Downfall he reveals all - their rise, disappearance and rebirth - and interviews their fans, colleagues and famous peers and admirers.

    In 2016 the bad old men of Australian comedy dared to venture back to where it all began thirty years ago - the Edinburgh Festival.

    Can they recapture the magic? Will anyone remember them?

Such is his prophetic insight that many of them are more relevant today - and funnier and more ironic - than when they were first published.This beautiful, colour-filled hardback includes some works not previously collected, along with an introduction by Leunig on how he creates: the process of discovering 'poetry and spirit in the playful winding path that the semiconscious pen makes on a piece of paper'. The Essential Leunig is a testament to the enduring appeal of a unique Australian artist.
