This is a book about the simple pleasure of pebble spotting. Clarence Ellis is a charming, knowledgeable and witty guide to everything you didn't know there was to know about pebbles. He ruminates on what a pebble actually is, before showing us how they are formed, advising on the best pebble-spotting grounds in the UK, helping to identify individual stones, and giving tips on the necessary kit. You'll know your chert from your schist, your onyx from your agate, and will be on your guard for artificial intruders before you know it. Understanding the humble pebble makes a trip to the beach, lake-side or river bank simply that little bit more fascinating.
Dragons guarding gateways, elephants in parks, sea monsters on gables--this quirky guidebook introduces the animals that hide amidst the iconic London landscape London is full of animals. They are hidden in crumbling graveyards, daubed in canal-bank graffiti, and perched atop rooftops, but in the hustle-and-bustle at street level they are all too often overlooked. This guidebook full of gorgeous photography brings to life the animal artworks that give London its unique character. From rabbits, owls, dogs, and cats to tortoises, dolphins, sharks, and gorillas, a menagerie of creatures inhabits every corner of the city from Tobacco Docks to Crystal Palace, Bankside to Hackney. They span both ancient and modern too: monstrous medieval gargoyles lurk down damp alleyways, while in a modern urban wasteland there lives a "mechanosaurous" made out of car parts by scrap merchants. From the moment a reader spies one in the undergrowth of a neglected park, or spots for the first time one clinging to the parapet of a classic landmark, they will have embarked on a remarkable topographical treasure hunt.

How through our language we can see that it (the Heart Symbol) was created by our hunter gatherer/agrarian Ancestors from their thoughtful understanding of nature. This document explains in detail how it is that the Sun the Earth and attendant Moon were the primary reason for the Heart Symbol and perceived as the incunabula of everthing.
