This book is a collection of six papers from the 2004 Land/Water and Surface symposium. These works contribute both to contemporary academic debates within artist and curatorial practices, and to understanding within related areas of experience and knowledge. Central themes include: sustainability; representation of change, journey, place and visual practice; West Country and regional specificity. There is particular focus on coast as a littoral space, and interest in exploring relations between site-theme-art process-narrative. The collection also includes material about the Land/Water Research group, the programme for the 2005 symposium and speaker biographies illustrations, and a poem by Thomas A Clark written especially for the occasion.

Author: Alexander Medcalf
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319708577
Release Date: 2018-03-06
Genre: History

This book explores the phenomenal resources dedicated to understanding and encouraging passengers to consume travel from 1900 to 1939, analysing how place and travel were presented for sale. Using the Great Western Railway as a chief case study, as well as a range of its competitors both on and off the rails, Alexander Medcalf unravels the complex and ever-changing processes behind corporate sales communications. This volume analyses exactly how the company pictured passengers in the countryside, at the seaside, in the urban landscape and in the company’s vehicles. This thematic approach brings transport and business history thoroughly in line with tourism and leisure history as well as studies in visual culture.

Genre: Travel

This ebook covers the Neolithic and Bronze Age remains of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Dorset. If you�re looking to visit as many iconic megalithic sites in as short a time as possible, then West Penwith, at the very tip of Cornwall, should be high on your list, with its famous holed stone at M�n-an-Tol, the leaning pillar inside the circle of Boscawen-_n, and much else. But there are many other treasures to find throughout the region. Dartmoor is famous for its stone rows (around 86 of these have been identified), and Exmoor for the challenge of its hard-to-spot _minilithicî settings. Britain�s second-largest stone circle is at Stanton Drew in Somerset, while the 10km (6 mile) long Dorest Cursus is probably Britain�s largest Neolithic site. If you�re visiting Gloucestershire, you may also want to download The Old Stones of Wales ebook as the sites here are very close to South Wales. The Old Stones of the West of England is part of a series covering the megalithic and other prehistoric sites of Britain and Ireland. The series is published together as The Old Stones: A Field Guide to the Megalithic Sites of Britain and Ireland, available as a book and an ebook.
