“Diff in June” tells a day in the life of a personal computer, written by itself in its own language, as a sort of private log or intimate diary focused on every single change to the data... More > on its hard disk. Using a small custom script, for the entire month of June 2011 Martin Howse registered each chunk of data which had changed within the file system from the previous day's image.

John Constable: 81 Drawings and Watercolors By Narim Bender
eBook (ePub): $1.99
John Constable was English painter, ranked with Turner as one of the greatest British landscape artists. After spending some years working in the Picturesque tradition of landscape and the manner of... More > Gainsborough, Constable developed his own original treatment from the attempt to render scenery more directly and realistically; he thought that 'No two days are alike, nor even two hours; neither were there ever two leaves of a tree alike since the creation of the world', and: 'The sound of water escaping from mill dams, willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts and brickwork. I love such things. These scenes made me a painter.' He never went abroad, and his finest works are of the places he knew and loved best, particularly Suffolk and Hampstead, where he lived from 1821. Often completing primary sketches prior to starting a large canvas, Constable would draw on the inspiration nature gave him and tries to capture a moment in time, testing his composition first in sketches.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
An ancestral trail through two English counties inhabited by everyday, church-going country folk. Great-grandmother Mary Brewer Andrew was to grow up in a sheltered Cornish village founded by a Welsh... More > saint, but fate found her transported across the country to Suffolk, where she was to find the man of her dreams and start an idyllic family. Life was good and prosperous as a butcher's wife, the only real tragedy being in WWII with the loss of her youngest child. Yet her own childhood and ancestry tell a tale of death and hardship. Pealing back the pages of the lives of her immediate parents' family, who were agricultural labourers, is a story unto itself. Some ancestors did run successful businesses though. They were millers; but even millers can fall foul of the law, which has necessitated a detailed look into the life inside the notorious Bodmin jail. Chilling though its stories are, the place is now a museum, a skylight looking down into how things should not have been, but how history & karma affect us all.< Less

While reading A Cul-de-Sac Off of Main Street by Peter V. Dugan I was drawn in by the brilliance of his work. Peter uses laymen’s terms, everyday language, and yet his poems are elevated, and... More > they elevate us, those that read his powerful work. Throuthout the book I am riding with the poet as he shows me so much of the stuff that makes up what we call life. We are given a personal tour, which says; “Hey, take a look, you don’t want to miss this!” As I place the book down I feel grateful for the experience Peter has given me; the ability to safeful view what he has seen and then go back to my nine-to-five life, and yet I am left with a twinge of sadness that somewhere, back there in my own past, I may have left the best part of me.

“Whilst we can't deny the existence of ladders in life, we should never be so taken over with the desire to climb that we allow it to overcome the desire to be loved and rest on the rungs where... More > we are now. No earthly ladder can ever take us closer to God, only God can draw us closer to Himself.” ‘Horizontal Ladders’ reflects the author’s wonderfully colourful and agile mind. Readers should expect the unexpected. From the experiences and joy of the birth of his children, to the struggles of mental health, from the teachings of Genesis, to dealing with the grief of losing a loved one, this is a great collection of God-inspired thoughts. Vince Lee is a Christian father of four wonderful children, husband to an amazing wife and has Rapid Cycling Bipolar Disorder. Since being diagnosed he has spent time in quiet Suffolk, collating many years of writings and poetry to form this book. In characteristically modest fashion, he describes this book as ‘random’, like him and like life!< Less
