  • Mini Knitted Farmland

    This gorgeous book brings you more than 40 irresistible mini knits for knitters of all abilities. The fun, simple knitting patterns include a whole range of cute little farmyard animals, as well as fields for them to live in, a barn to shelter in, and some farmers to look after them with their own country cottage!

    Choose from all your farmyard favourites such as cows, sheep, pigs, donkeys and horses along with chickens, ducks, pheasants and crows. Many of the patterns require only small amounts of readily available yarn, so they are ideal for using up scraps from your stash. The book also contains a useful techniques section, with step-by-step instructions on stuffing and sewing up, creating tails and manes, and the embroidery stitches needed to create the facial features and details.

    With a handy foldout template sheet stored in the back of the book, this is all you need to make your very own knitted farmyard.

  • Painting by Numbers

    Ferdinand Bauer is seen by many as the greatest natural history painter of all time. Hand-picked by Joseph Banks, in 1801–1805 Bauer accompanied Matthew Flinders during his circumnavigation of Australia, and lived in New South Wales and Norfolk Island. Already celebrated in Europe for the precision and beauty of his paintings, it was during this commission that Bauer perfected the technique of sketching and colour-coding in the field, and then colouring later – painting by numbers.

    This fascinating new study of Bauer's work includes reproductions of never-before-published works from collections in Europe and Australia. Written by one of the world's foremost botanical scholars, Painting by Numbers reveals Bauer's innovative colour-coding technique for the first time.
