Description

In the last hundred years East Anglia and Dorset have received the greatest attention from folklorists interested in such canine apparitions. Jeremy Harte combines folklore scholarship with a lively style to show what the presence of fairies meant to people's lives. The gleaming fragments of the nation’s cultural and countercultural histories unearthed by Guy Mankowski’s Albion’s Secret History suggest otherwise. Better known to the tabloids as Pete, rather than Peter, he's been lauded and vilified in equal measure, and thanks to his on-off-on (and now apparently permanently off) relationship with supermodel Kate Moss, he's more famous for his seemingly uncontrollable drugtaking and resulting court appearances than he is for his musicianship. We can also offer you illustrated books on: erotic, photography, music, fashion, movies, art, painting, sculpture, architecture, design.

I've been given enough cash to get trashed for the next six months just for digging out some scraps of stoned ramblings, so I'm sorted. This book includes a detailed study of the lore in Norfolk, showing how oral tales become interwoven with published accounts and the heritage of historic places. He takes on a very romantic, melodramatic tone throughout the book, but it is really just describing boring day to day life! Explore Green Men is illustrated with 118 photographs and drawings, mostly of Green Men who have never before showed their faces in books. From his guerrilla gigs with the Libertines through to his TV appearances, our wayward rake has stumbled through every barrier that separates the private and public spheres.

If we are frightened of the fairies, it may be because their world offers an uncomfortable mirror of our own. We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there’s something for every literary palate.

Doherty's handwriting is barely legible and the amount of work I had to put into deciphering the page left me frustrated and gave me no encouragement to continue forward.Eexplore Fairy Traditions draws on legends, ballads and testimony from throughout Britain and Ireland to reveal what the fairies were really like. Albion's Secret History compiles snapshots of English pop culture’s rebels and outsiders, from Evelyn Waugh to PJ Harvey via The Long Blondes and The Libertines.
