Whether you've been gardening for ages or you're just setting out on your first venture into the world of plants, this guided journal provides a place to track all your garden chores, dreams and observations. Each month of the journal provides room to record upcoming chores, dreams you have for your personal space and the many wonders you observe in your garden throughout the year. Although numbered by week, the pages are undated so you can start your journal any year and any month you like. The My Garden Journal includes.... * Space for planning your overall gardening goals over the coming year. * 20 pages with areas to plan your garden layout, sketch an interesting flower or critter, or doodle when the weather is too nasty to get outside. For those with minimal artistic skills, you can use these pages for garden images from magazines or photos of your own garden as it grows. * 12 months of seasonal garden tips to give you an idea of what you may need to do in your own garden. The tips are followed by space to plan out your own garden's to-do list for the month. * 52 weeks of pages to record what's growing, how the weather has been, what you did that week, what you observed and any other garden news you want to record. * Room to imagine what next year's garden might bring. While the My Garden Journal can't turn you into a master gardener, it will make you a more organized and more observant gardener as you keep track of your chores, dreams and observations.

Artistic Lives examines cultural production as a non-standard, self-directed, and frequently unpaid activity, which is susceptible to developments that affect the availability of unstructured time. It engages with discourses which have historically had little to do with the arts, including urban sociology and social policy research, to explore the social conditions and identities of ordinary artists, revealing the importance of the cost of living or access to housing, benefits or employment in determining who is able to become an artist or sustain an artistic career. The book thus challenges recent policy discourses that celebrate the ability of cultural producers to create something from nothing, and, more generally, the myth of creativity as an individual phenomenon, divorced from social context. Presenting rich interview material with artists and arts professionals in London and Berlin, together with ethnographic descriptions, Artistic Lives engages with debates surrounding Post-Fordism, gentrification and the nature of authorship, to raise challenging questions about the function of culture and the role of cultural producers within contemporary capitalism. An empirically grounded exploration of the identity of the modern artist and his or her ability to make a living in neoliberal societies, Artistic Lives will be of interest to students and scholars researching urban studies, the sociology of art and creative cultures, social stratification and social policy.
Aristide Valentin, Chief of the Paris Police, was late for his dinner, and some of his guests began to arrive before him. These were, however, reassured by his confidential servant, Ivan, the old man with a scar, and a face almost as grey as his moustaches, who always sat at a table in the entrance hall-a hall hung with weapons.
