    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!

    We're in the middle of the Tour de France. High drama already with lots of crashes, angry outbursts and accusations all around (are team Sky doping? Or, has everyone else stopped doping and are just going slower?)

    If it gets you in the mood to hop on your bike and head to la belle France then Lonely Planet have some great guide books to help you plan your trip and they've been good enough to give us a sample to have a look at. As the Tour is off to the Pyrenees here's a few pages from that region.

    (PS Lonely Planet don't just do cycling guide books to France. Lots of places!)
