What would an anatomy of the book look like? There is the main text, of course, the file that the author proudly submits to their publisher. But around this, hemming it in on the page or enclosing it at the front and back of the book, there are dozens of other texts—page numbers and running heads, copyright statements and errata lists—each possessed of particular conventions, each with their own lively histories. To consider these paratexts—recalling them from the margins, letting them take centre stage—is to be reminded that no book is the sole work of the author whose name appears on the cover; rather, every book is the sum of a series of collaborations. It is to be reminded, also, that not everything is intended for us, the readers. There are sections that are solely directed at others—binders, librarians, lawyers—parts of the book that, if they are working well, are working discreetly, like a theatrical prompt, whispering out of the audience's ear-shot Book Parts is a bold and imaginative intervention in the fast growing field of book history: it pulls the book apart. Over twenty-two chapters, Book Parts tells the story of the components of the book: from title pages to endleaves; from dust jackets to indexes—and just about everything in between. Book Parts covers a broad historical range that runs from the pre-print era to the digital, bringing together the expertise of some of the most exciting scholars working on book history today in order to shine a new light on these elements hiding in plain sight in the books we all read.

If the Tasmanian Tiger really is extinct, how come it won't go away in this bundle of three funny novels? If you like finding a quirky character behind every corner, you are in danger of enjoying this collection. You are in serious danger of enjoyment you like a dash of mystery with your laughs, and you don't mind twists you don't see coming. The first book is WHO KNEW TASMANIAN TIGERS EAT APPLES! It has revenge like you've probably never seen, dealt up by someone who doesn't really want to deal it. The novel is set in Tasmania in the early 1990s and takes a satirical dig at a small town and some small-minded officials. The Tasmanian Tiger hunter tangles with a greedy mayor who believes no one can tell him what to do with an apple orchard that was handed down from his great, great, great grandfather, who was a tyrant who struck fear into the hearts of Irish convicts under his command. When claims are made Tasmanian Tigers have been spotted in the orchard, the mayor doesn't believe a word of it. Why would he? The last-known Tasmanian Tiger died in 1936, and the species was later declared extinct. The next novel, LIE OF THE TIGER, is set in the same location 25 years later. How could secret doggy business possibly solve the mystery of the Tasmanian Tiger? Find out in this funny but touching story about two old men and an Irishman who are trying to save a failing Tasmanian Tiger museum. Finally, BLOKES ON A PLANE. The Mayor is missing ... someone is stealing important landmarks ... and the Tasmanian Tiger starts being elusive once again. Two old men go from being unlikely tourists to becoming unlikely sleuths in this funny novel. Octogenarians Oodles and Wish-Wash, who were drrinking mates in the first book all those years ago, have been planning to go to Ireland to retrace family history. But they are forced to reassess their priorities when they realise no one else seems to share their concerns about the strange things happening in the normally sleepy little town. Will the old men solve the mystery in time to catch their plane? WHAT OTHER READERS THINK Lie of the Tiger TOUCHINGLY FUNNY: Great style of writing which engages and makes the book even more enjoyable. Character based, and likeable characters at that! READ IT, laugh and then, like me, wait for the next instalment! I do hope that Mr Martin can write quickly. JOHN MARTIN'S forte is his funny, quirky characters and there is one around every corner of Windy Mountain. IN A ROMP OF mistaken identities, hidden agendas, lost loves, and a group of wacky townsfolk, Paddy, Wish-Wash, and Oodles give their lives new meaning. JOHN MARTIN has a good grip on characters and their development, particularly the quirks. His writing rhythm is smooth and consistent. I laughed out loud enough that it makes me want to continue following his work. Blokes on a Plane IT READS like a comedy sketch. It's something a little different for me and it was entertaining. It's quirky, heartwarming and funny … IT IS AN understatement to say that nothing is as it seems. Another raucous story from John Martin. Who Knew Tasmanian Tigers Eat Apples! DIDN'T WANT to put it down … the characters were colorful and fun! This is a quick read and enjoyable! THERE ARE several stories going on in this book, all with humorous moments, and well developed characters. IF YOU like your humour with a touch of mystery and quirky townsfolk, then you may also enjoy this story. SOME OF the Australian slang was a little difficult to understand at first, but added to the flavor of the book. I ENJOYED THE book for its quirky, exaggerated characters and it's satirical, tongue in cheek look at life in a small town. WHAT MORE can you ask in a cast of characters? The story itself, a quick read, is light-hearted and humorous, and a good start to a series.​

Pencils, a sketchbook, cake, yards of stolen ribbon, thimbles, snuff boxes, a picture of a lover, two live ducks: these are just some of the fascinating things carried by women and girls in their tie-on pockets, an essential accessory throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. This first book-length study of the tie-on pocket combines materiality and gender to provide new insight into the social history of women's everyday lives--from duchesses and country gentry to prostitutes and washerwomen--and explore their consumption practices, work, sociability, mobility, privacy, and identity. The authors draw on an unprecedented study of surviving pockets in museums and private collections to identify their materials, techniques, and decoration; their use is investigated through sources as diverse as criminal trials, letters, diaries, inventories, novels, and advertisements. Richly illustrated with paintings, satirical prints, and photographs of artifacts in detail, this innovative book reveals the unexpected story of these deeply evocative and personal objects.
