War Bowl by Dominic Wilcox

A bowl made from melted toy soldiers. This bowl
depicts the Battle of Waterloo: half British Artillery,
half French Infantry. These are not too easy to find
and the price has been reduced so don't hesitate,
we won't be able to get them in again!

Japanese Art Then & Now

See/Saw offers a provocative new look at the
origins of Japanese pop art. Often defined by
references to manga or anime, contemporary
Japanese art in fact has much broader roots.
By drawing parallels between the art of Japan
past and present, this compelling book reveals
how current artists rework the traditional forms
and techniques of Japanese art history. Modern
takes on time honored conventions are illustrated
by the work of contemporary artists including
Tabaimo, Makoto Aida, Takashi Murakami, Yayoi
Kusama and Yoshitomo Nara. Aficionados of
both contemporary and traditional Japan are sure
to appreciate this fresh perspective on art and
the power of visual culture.

more new records just in...

playmobile joy division

this definitely made us smile. it is a pretty
faithful version of the original 1979
appearance on BBC show "something else"
love the drummer but playmobile ian curtis
seems a little stiff :)

more chocolate has arrived!!

You have no idea how excited we are to have this
amazing chocolate back in stock!! We sold out at
Christmas and we've been missing it like crazy.
We have the Salt & Pepper bar and the Mexican
style Cinn-Chili bar (both are 67% cacao). If you
missed out in December you owe it to yourself
to come in and try some. The chocolate is bean
to bar, small batch, slow-roasted, stone ground
and simply to die for. Those of you tried it and
came back in looking for more in January I hope
you see this and come back in before its gone...
