Decorate Your Shoes

RRP $59.99

Forget your heart on your sleeve. Wear your passion on your shoes! Paint a quilt on them! On a whim, Annemart Berendse painted a quilt on her shoes to wear to the 2011 AQS quilt show in Paducah. She could barely move through the crowd because people kept stopping her to comment on her brightly colored 'patchwork' clogs. She shares her techniques for creating a quilt design and positioning it appropriately on any style of shoe. She explains various combinations of shoe material-leather, manmade leather, vinyl, and canvas-and markers-pens and paints. Her easy-to-follow directions guarantee foolproof results. In the 11 projects there are 7 different styles of shoes-something for everyone, from truly inexpensive to ultra chic. Her 'grocery lists' assure you'll have every supply needed on hand should you, too, be overcome by a shoe decorating whim. Stand out in any crowd with decorated shoes on your feet.

Shoes For The Moscow Circus

RRP $59.95

Shoes for the Moscow Circus is an atmospheric, lyrical look behind the scenes of a number of Australian trades and industries, many of which are fast disappearing in the modern world.

Arts writer Leta Keens, with photographer Oliver Strewe, visited more than 25 factories and workshops - including an umbrella maker and cricket ball factory, a taxidermist and a bicycle maker, a tannery and a dolls' hospital - and discovered far more than simply the history and processes involved in these trades.

With an engagingly readable style, she also tells the stories of the characters who inhabit these intriguing and often little known worlds.
