A classic, prize-winning novel about an epic migration and a lone woman haunted by the past in frontier Waipu. In the 1850s, a group of settlers established a community at Waipu in the northern part of New Zealand. They were led there by a stern preacher, Norman McLeod. The community had followed him from Scotland in 1817 to found a settlement in Nova Scotia, then subsequently to New Zealand via Australia. Their incredible journeys actually happened, and in this winner of the New Zealand Book Awards, Fiona Kidman breathes life and contemporary relevance into the facts by creating a remarkable fictional story of three women entangled in the migrations - Isabella, her daughter Annie and granddaughter Maria. McLeod's harsh leadership meant that anyone who ran counter to him had to live a life of secrets. The 'secrets' encapsulated the spirit of these women in their varied reactions to McLeod's strict edicts and connect the past to the present and future.

Im Rahmen des Forschungsvorhabens "Religiöse Schriften der Yao" wurde ein groáes Segment der entsprechenden Bestände der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek erfaát: mit 2776 Kodizes, die dieser mehrheitlich in China, Thailand, Laos und Vietnam als Minderheit lebenden Gruppe zugerechnet werden, einer der bedeutendsten Sammlungen weltweit. Etwa ein Drittel davon beinhaltet das hier vorgelegte Verzeichnis. Dabei handelt es sich insofern um eine äPioniertatô, als erstmals ein Katalog der mit Hilfe chinesischer Schrift niedergelegten Texte veröffentlicht wird, welcher auf eine wissenschaftlichen Kriterien standhaltende Dokumentation abzielt. Dies zeigt sich nicht nur im Umfang der einbezogenen Informationen (einschlieálich der Benennung von Besitzern und Schreibern), sondern auch in dem Bemuehen um Zuordnungen (Lokalisierung, Datierung, Verknuepfung mit bestimmten Ritualen, Anbindung an religiöse Schulen), die den Ausgangspunkt fuer weiterfuehrende Forschungsaktivitäten bilden sollen. Schlieálich ist die Bereitstellung der im Katalog erfaáten Daten nicht zuletzt fuer die Yao selbst von Bedeutung, welche ihre Identität insbesondere an der Verschriftlichung ihrer religiösen Traditionen festmachen.

An inspirational how-to course on Japanese woodblock printing's history and techniques, with guidance on materials and studio practices, step-by-step demonstrations, and examples of finished works by modern masters of the medium as well as historic pieces. A Modern Guide to the Ancient Art of mokuhanga An increasingly popular yet age-old art form, Japanese woodblock printing (mokuhanga) is embraced for its non-toxic character, use of handmade materials, and easy integration with other printmaking techniques. In this comprehensive guide, artist and printmaker April Vollmer—one of the best known mokuhanga practitioners and instructors in the West—combines her deep knowledge of this historic printmaking practice with expert step-by-step instruction, guidance on materials and studio practices, and a diverse collection of prints by leading contemporary artists. At once practical and inspirational, this handbook is as useful to serious printmakers and artists as it is to creative people drawn to Japanese history and aesthetics. From the Hardcover edition.
