From the Cataloguer's Desktop

A short one; since I'm off for the week, I grabbed and brought home the notes I had ...

Painters of reality : the legacy of Leonardo and Caravaggio in Lombardy, edited by Andrea Bayer. Some very nice clothing details ...

The perfect medium : photography and the occult, by Clément Cheroux, Pierre Apraxine, Andreas Fischer, Denis Canquilhem, and Sophie Schmit. This one is here for the Sarah Waters fans ... the book is a collection of photographs, including many Victorian ones of alleged ectoplasm casts, spirit images, and other objects seen by Margaret Prior when she visits the British National Association of Spiritualists' headquarters in Affinity.

Capoeira conditioning : how to build strength, agility, and cardiovascular fitness using capoeira movements, by Gerard Taylor. Capoeira is a Brazilian combination of martial art and dance, generally performed to music. One doesn't have to aspire to the art itself to benefit from the training behind it ... I figure an exercise program which involves every part of the body and requires no equipment is one that fits everybody's budget. ;-) (and don't look at the cover photo and despair ... on the inside, the program starts at couch-potato level)

Don't click on the blue e! : switching to Firefox, by Scott Granneman.

A new republic : a history of the United States in the twentieth century, by John Lukacs.

Before the dawn : recovering the lost history of our ancestors, by Nicholas Wade.

Devil's game : how the United States helped unleash fundamentalist Islam, by Robert Dreyfuss.

The 25 best reptile and amphibian pets, by R.D. Bartlett.

A northern front : new and selected essays, by John Hildebrand.

Better than I ever expected : straight talk about sex after sixty, by Joan Price. Yeah, I know none of us are there yet. But, with humans being the unpredictable critters that they are, this could be a banned book by the time we need it. It could also be Saturday morning kiddie programming ... who can tell? I'm just giving you the chance to play safe and squirrel a copy away, just in case ... ;-)

Podcasting hacks, by Jack D. Herrington.

Inside every woman : using the 10 strengths you didn't know you had to get the career and life you want now, by Vickie L. Milazzo.

The itty bitty kitchen handbook : everything you need to know about setting up and cooking in the most ridiculously small kitchen in the world ... your own, by Justin Spring.

Meth : America's home-cooked menace, by Dirk Johnson.
