Confabulation is a drawing together through storytelling. Fundamental to our perception, memory, and thought is the way we join fractured experiences to construct a narrative. Confabulations: Storytelling in Architecture weaves together poetic ideas, objects, and events and returns you to everyday experiences of life through juxtapositions with dreams, fantasies, and hypotheticals. It follows the intellectual and creative framework of architectural cosmopoesis developed and practiced by the distinguished thinker, architect, and professor Dr. Marco Frascari, who thought deeply about the role of storytelling in architecture. Bringing together a collection of 24 essays from a diverse and respected group of scholars, this book presents the convergence of architecture and storytelling across a broad temporal, geographic, and cultural range. Beginning with an introduction framing the topic, the book is organized along a continuous thread structured around four key areas: architecture of stories, stories of architecture, stories of theory and practice of stories. Beautifully illustrated throughout and including a 64-page full colour section, Confabulations is an insightful investigation into architectural narratives.

Heraclitus is the first English translation of Volume 55 of Martin Heidegger's Gesamtausgabe. This important volume consists of two lecture courses given by Heidegger at the University of Freiburg over the Summers of 1943 and 1944 on the thought of Heraclitus. These lectures shed important light on Heidegger's understanding of Greek thinking, as well as his understanding of Germany, the history of philosophy, the Western world, and their shared destinies.

Using close visual analysis of drawings, artist interviews, critical analysis and exegesis, Drawing Investigations examines how artists use drawing as an investigative tool to reveal information that would otherwise remain unseen and unnoticed. How does drawing add shape to ideas? How does the artist accommodate to challenges and restraints of a particular environment? To what extent is a drawing complementary and continuous with its subject and where is it disruptive and provocative? Casey and Davies address these questions while focusing on artists working collaboratively and the use of drawing in challenging or unexpected environments. Drawing Investigations evaluates the emergence of a way of thinking among an otherwise disconnected group of artists by exploring commonalities in the application of analytical drawing to the natural world, urban environment, social forces and lived experience. Examples represent a spectrum of research in international contexts: an oceanographic Institute in California, the archives of Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, the Antarctic Survey, geothermal research in Japan and the Kurdish diaspora in Iraq. Issues are situated in the contemporary theory and practice of drawing including relationships to historical precedents. By exploring drawing's capacity to capture and describe experience, to sharpen visual faculties and to bridge embodied and conceptual knowledge, Drawing Investigations offers a fresh critical perspective on contemporary drawing practice.

A presentation copy inscribed on the front-end-paper "To Sir Alexander Allan Bart., with the respectful compliments of the author." Hailed by his contemporaries as the "Father of watercolour painting in this country", Francis Nicholson's career spanned nine decades. He witnessed the founding of the Royal Academy, the opening of the first public 'Picture Gallery', the founding of the National Gallery, the growth of provincial Fine Arts Societies and not least, the Inaugural Exhibition of the Society of Painters in Watercolours of which he was a founder member. He was born in Pickering, North Yorkshire and for some fifty years painted portraits and scenes mainly in the northern counties. After his marriage, he worked from Whitby, Knaresborough, and Ripon before moving his family to London. For a further forty years, he continued to paint in watercolours and established himself not only as a fashionable drawing master but as an early exponent of the newly discovered medium of "lithography"- the art of making prints from drawings on stone. According to Thornbury (1861) J. M. W. Turner described Francis Nicholson as "my model", and once related to Mr. Munro how he had copied Nicholson's paintings in his youth. (Ken Spelman 76/42).
