  • There's a couple of big movies coming out in the next few months adapted from big books. Looks like they've thrown quite a lot of money at these flicks...

    1st up is David Mitchell's 'unfilmable' Cloud Atlas. Three directors, nearly three hours *gulp* (epic trailer too - clear 6 minutes to view)

    2nd is Yann Martel's also 'unfilmable' Life of Pi. Much resting on the stripes of a CGI'd Tiger. Grrrrrooowwwlllll.

    As ever, we would urge you to read the wonderful books first!

  • blog imageWhat if angels not only walked among us - but were our celebrities? What if they saved people for money? That's the reality in Angel City. Jackson Godspeed is the hottest Angel in a city obsessed with Immortals. He's about to become the youngest Guardian ever. Everyone loves him except Maddy Montgomery. She's not interested in celebrities. Until Jackson takes refuge in the diner where Maddy works and a fierce, inexplicable connection pulls them together.

    There are angels and then there are Angels. There are book trailers and then there's this:

    We forgot this is a book trailer half way through and started wondering when the movie comes out. Which is not actually that far away from the truth, as the producers of Gossip Girl and Vampire Diaries have already optioned Immortal City for television development. Find the book here and don't forget your popcorn.

    Stuffed chicken

    The 'barnyard fowl', native to southern China, had gradually spread westewrads to Greece; unmistakable vignettes of cocks and hens can be found in Greek vase-painting of about 700 BC.

    Lemon posset

    The name posset persists for this refreshing drink but the typical sweet wine of early recipes has given way to lemon juice.

  • From Nobrow Press comes this stunning book -- twenty four artists take on seven pages each to tell their tales of the creation of everything.

    blog image Some draw on tales from ancient traditions, such as Norse or Ainu legends or a universal mother's womb of all things. Some illustrate mainly in stylised profiles, harking back to Egyptian tomb walls or Grecian friezes. Others mostly ignore previous versions and take more oblique or satirical stabs.

    Features contributions from artists such as Stuart Kolakovic, Ben Newman, Mike Bertino, Brecht Vandenbroucke, and Luke Pearson.

    Pull up a rock and gather round the flickering fire - the universe is about to be born again.

    We can't wait to get our hands on this one...

    What can possibly be cooler than a maze? Oh that's right, a maze made of books!

    The Book Depository proudly supports aMAZEme; part of the London 2012 Festival, aMAZEme is a gigantic maze up to 2.5 meters high, built from over 200,000 books! You might even find some from the Book Depository in there...

    Created by Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo, the aMAZEme Project consists of a series of ideas that mix concepts, languages, techniques and multimedia. The audience will unexpectedly come into contact with the installation, helping to stimulate their curiosity, knowledge and creativity. aMAZEme is an art project that unites literature, performance, installation, live cinema, images and the Internet, based on three main concepts:

    Art/Literature + Entertainment + Generosity

    So if you're in London any time from now until August 26, have a stroll by Southbank and discover the maze at The Clore Ballroom, Royal Festival Hall. Time to get lost in books. Literally!
