New and exciting titles for Spring 2015

Stealing Dylan From WoodstockSteal­ing Dylan from Woodstock

Ray Foulk & Car­o­line Foulk

For a time, the Isle of Wight Fes­ti­vals trans­formed a sleepy Eng­lish island into the rock‘n’roll cap­i­tal of the world. What started in 1968 as a parochial one-nighter in a stub­ble field to raise funds for a local swim­ming pool, a year later bal­looned into a mas­sive out­door gath­er­ing. Num­bers sky-rocketed as devo­tees flocked to the Island from main­land Britain, Europe, the Amer­i­cas and as far away as Aus­tralia, to pay homage to rock’s poet lau­re­ate, Bob Dylan.

DeeperThanIndigoDeeper than Indigo

Jenny Bal­four Paul

This intrigu­ing odyssey, set on the edges of time, encom­passes biog­ra­phy, mem­oir, detec­tive story, trav­el­ogue and his­tory to tell a remark­able tale of East-West con­nec­tions and a mys­te­ri­ous love.

“One of the most remark­able books I have ever read” A N Wilson

SpiritOfTheWindSpirit of the Wind

Miona Janeke

Spirit of the Wind is the result of an intre­pid pil­grim­age to dis­cover the essence of the mys­te­ri­ous herds of feral horses in the Namib desert.

In 2014 Miona Janeke spent many months fol­low­ing the elu­sive horses in an attempt to cap­ture on cam­era their unfet­tered wild spirit, and the bleak beauty of their inhos­pitable habitat. That she has suc­ceeded is evi­dent in these stun­ning photographs.

“In telling the story of our race­courses, Roy Gill per­fectly high­lights the agony and the ecstasy of the world of rac­ing.”  Bob Cham­pion MBE
