This book is as much a treasure to the boat owner as a glass of Pinot Noir to the discerning wine lover. It takes you through the canals of Burgundy, detailing places of interest which can be... More > visited from the canals. With advice on buses, cycle trips and walks. Rich in history, this area of France needs time to explore and without this book it would be easy to miss the history dating from Caesar's Gallic wars to Middle Ages' architecture and to modern times. For example the gates on the staircase of locks on the Canal du Nivernais are all different because of destruction in WWII by the Resistance to prevent the German Army from using it as a supply line. The town of Gien - 80% destroyed by the Germans in 1940, and by the Allies in 1944 - has been harmoniously restored using traditional brick patterning and chevrons. It is this sort of information which makes this book not only different from other canal guides but gives a unique tast of France - just a sip of the flavours of beautiful Burgundy.< Less

More > century. Beginning with the end of the Dark Ages, Veblen examines the evolution of the hierarchical social structures.

More > towards the inhuman scale of big data. Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
