Artists often use large notebooks, which include wide spaces of blank paper appropriate for drawing. Lawyers use rather large notebooks known as legal pads that contain lined paper (often yellow) and are appropriate for use on tables and desks. These horizontal lines or “rules” are sometimes classified according to their space apart with “wide rule” the farthest, “college rule” closer, “legal rule” slightly closer and “narrow rule” closest, allowing more lines of text per page. When sewn into a pasteboard backing, these may be called composition books, or in smaller signatures may be called “blue books” or exam books and used for essay exams.
In contrast, journalists prefer small, hand-held notebooks for portability (reporters’ notebooks), and sometimes use shorthand when taking notes. Scientists and other researchers use lab notebooks to document their experiments. The pages in lab notebooks are sometimes graph paper to plot data. Police officers are required to write notes on what they observe, using a police notebook. Land surveyors commonly record field notes in durable, hard-bound notebooks called “field books.”
Coloring enthusiasts use coloring notebooks for stress relief. The pages in coloring notebooks contain different adult coloring pages. Students take notes in notebooks, and studies suggest that the act of writing (as opposed to typing) improves learning.
Fine art photographer Edward M. Fielding has licensed another photograph for a book cover via his agency, Arcangel Images. The image used for the novel “In ewiger Schuld” a thriller by author Harlan Coben is being sold in the German book market.
Maya – Pilotin und nach einem umstrittenen Einsatz aus dem Militär entlassen – blickt fassungslos auf die Filmaufnahmen ihrer Nanny-Cam: Dort spielt ihre kleine Tochter seelenruhig mit Mayas Ehemann Joe. Doch Joe wurde zwei Wochen zuvor brutal ermordet – und Maya hat tränenblind an seinem Grab gestanden. Kann Maya ihren Augen trauen? Wer würde sie so grausam täuschen? Und was geschah wirklich in der Nacht, in der Joe ermordet wurde? Um Antworten auf all ihre Fragen zu finden, muss Maya sich den düsteren Geheimnissen nicht nur ihrer eigenen Geschichte stellen. Sie muss auch tief in die Vergangenheit von Joes reicher Familie eintauchen. Doch dort ist sie plötzlich nicht mehr willkommen …

How to Hang a Picture: And Other Essential Lessons for the Stylish Home by Jay Sacher
Like tying a Windsor knot or brewing a perfect cup of coffee, knowing how to hang art on your wall is a hallmark of everyday style and nuts-and-bolts know-how. The where, what, and whys of hanging art are an overlooked, under-appreciated line of inquiry. Most of us simply wing it with a quick eyeball and a swing of the hammer. How hard can it be? we think. What can go wrong? The answer, of course, is plenty: crumbling plaster, ruined antique laths, mismatched art hung too-close together, or a poorly-mounted photograph warping in its frame. But beyond the technical mishaps, there is a more essential lesson to be learned: The skill and consideration with which you decorate your home makes an aesthetic statement about the world you inhabit-and more importantly, when it’s done right, it very clearly looks a whole lot better.
Slim and stylish, How to Hang a Picture: And Other Essential Lessons for a Stylish Home is a user-friendly guidebook that details everything you need to know about hanging, framing, decorating and displaying art. If Strunk & White’s Elements of Style was crossed with a no-nonsense how-to manual, you will have captured the tone and immediacy of How to Hang a Picture: simple rules and essential information presented with charm and intelligence.

The American farmhouse represents integrity, ingenuity, self-reliance, and agricultural heritage. Today, the farmhouse is a rare survivor from another era that can be found sensitively reinterpreted by artists, carefully preserved by original owners, or functionally maintained by farm-to-table artisanal food producers. In more than 200 stunning images, Steve Gross and Sue Daley have painstakingly photographed 20 of the most beautifully preserved farmhouses in the northeast. Some are working farmhouses that have been passed down in families for generations; some have been made productive again by a whole new generation of organic farmers. Still others have been rescued from neglect and restored to their former splendor. Each house is accompanied by an overview of the farmhouse owner and how he or she maintains the property. Fans of the farm-to-table movement as well as historic architecture and preservation will find this an intriguing and beautiful read.
Praise for Farmhouse Revival:
“Those interested in a homey, country style of decorating or in home restoration will be inspired.” —Library Journal
“Above all, the greatest joy is just looking at the beautiful time-worn places and appreciating the way those that came before led a happy and fulfilling life of simplicity and utility within their walls. For once you have read this book, you will realize that in many ways, it is the farmhouse that helps to restore us, and not the other way around.” —Preservation.com
“Buy the book Farmhouse Revival for the photos—for inspiration . . . the authors clearly know architecture and antiques.” —Dan’s Papers
“Perusing Farmhouse Revival is a marvelous experience . . . and is sure to make readers wonder what stories the farmhouses in their towns could tell.” —Cleveland Plain Dealer
The scene of some terrible drama that occurs during a howling snowstorm. A place you don’t want your kidnapper to take you. A place where no one can hear your screams.
Perhaps a place where the rabbits were butchered. A sex crime occurred. A strange old hag lives casting her evil spells.
Maybe a place of poverty and shame. Growing up in the shadows of the coal fields or where Grandpa sharpened his knives and axes. Perhaps the place where secrets or fugitives are hidden. Maybe shelter for that escaped convict from the local prison, unknown to the little girl sent out for kindling or to feed the goats.
Of course these old cabins in the woods or covered in a blanket of fresh winter snow don’t have to be the scene of terrible events. They can be fond memories, sugaring shacks for boiling maple sap down to sweet syrup, they can be workshops, warm and toasty vacation spots or even warming huts for cross country skiers.
The cabin photographs in this collectin depict remote cabins, barns, shacks and sheds in all seasons including winter, spring, summer and fall.
These fine art photographs, watercolors and paintings are available as prints rolled in a tube, framed and matted prints from hundreds of combinations of mats and frames, canvas prints, acrylic prints, metal prints, wood prints as well as on products such as tote bags, throw pillows, phone cases, greeting cards and more!
I created a nice portfolio photo book of my photographs using a company that is headquartered here in Hanover, NH. Picaboo also does the yearbook for Hanover High School. The first part of the video shows the office building downtown and then a flip through the book of some of my photographs.
Picaboo (https://www.picaboo.com/) did a great job with the book and the turnaround was very fast! I opted for the flat lay pages which shows off full-page, double page spreads very nicely. It’s a 12 x 12 inch book so the result is some really nice and big pages. It will be very impressive to show potential collectors.
The book is not intended for sale but as a portfolio if anyone wants to see some of my work. There is no real theme to the book, it covers a lot of subjects from some of my book cover concepts to landscapes to portraits. It gives a good over view of my style and capabilities as a photographer.

We go to the gallery – an art world primer for young readers.
British artist and comedy writer Miriam Elia’s popular art world-skewering “We Go to the Gallery,” will be re-released in mass-market format.
Early readers in the USA enjoyed Sally, Dick and Jane in the Dick and Jane book. who were the main characters in popular basal readers written by William S. Gray and Zerna Sharp[ and published by Scott Foresman, that were used to teach children to read from the 1930s through to the 1970s in the United States.
Meanwhile in the UK, the Ladybird series kept early readers in England happy. For art world fans with a sense of humor this new book parodies the modern art world in the style of these early readers.
“I want to play with the balloon, ” says John.
This sweetly sharp art world satire parodies the beloved ’60s British Ladybird series of early learning pocket books, enabling children to “smoothly internalize all of the debilitating middle class self hatred” contained in contemporary artworks. “New words on every page will also help your child to identify core concepts, so that they may repeat them at dinner parties to impress educated guests…
John does not understand.
“The rubbish smells,” says Susan.
New Words: Rubbish, Smells, Western
Printed in bold colors and written in clear, simple English,” each book in this new series from Dung Beetle Learning “will drag families in to the darkest recesses of the collective unconscious, for their broader cultural benefit.”
The canvas is blank.
Did you know? “The first release of “We Go to the Gallery,” printed after a Kickstarter campaign by the author, yielded only 1,000 copies that were sold for around $30 each. But the book gained popularity quickly. Ms. Elia shared some of the pages on social media, and soon they went viral. Then, the first release copies became coveted, and some resold for around $1,400. Ms. Elia knew then that she had to do a reprint.”
