Moods and Moments is a re-print of a classic best seller of 1955 which was judged by critics as the equal to the poems by the famous English poet A. A. Milne. It is being re-published and distributed by Trafford On-Demand Publishing because of popular demand by purchasers of the first edition who want it for their grandchildren. Included in this version are a few of the author's selected poems from Ideas and Images, published by Dembar Educational Services in Madison Wisconsin. It too was a best seller in its time. Moods and Moments, although written about one family, the author's, deals with the experiences of living together - and growing up - that are typically facecd by children and parents in homes around the world. Some poems are for children, some are for youths, and others, for adults. The charming verses in this collection - and their delightful illustrations - are meant for all ages. They are about children and young people; and the things important to them and their parents. They are for all who are now, or who have ever been young - and remember. Most especially, they are for families. And yes, they are for teachers too. For they as well live and grow up with young people. The rhymes and rhythms in this book touch upon - with sensitive insight and delicate whimsy - events and thoughts of children, and family experiences, that are so universal that they belong to all. They briing to the reader, be he or she young or otherwise, vivid poetic reflections of childhood games, and the sheer wonder and mystery of being young, and the refreshing eagerness of every child to run to meet life. Most importantly, Moods and Moments is wholesome reading. It is a pleasant and effective antidote for the confusion and frusratrions of the times. Its readable and enjoyable poems, characterized by simplicity, variety and lively rhythms, help all ages to appreciate - and perhaps to recapture - the vital experiences that make up the fabric of Happy family life. The content and charm of Dr. Stiles' verses, the delightfulness of Sally Turner's, Clarice George Logan and Lori Musil's illustrations and the artistry of the design of the book by Charles Smith and recreated by Simmie Plummer, all combine to make Moods and Moments a "quality book", a classic for all times and ages. It belongs in every home and is a "must" for collections of children's books in both school and public libraries. It is popular poetry for all ages. Its sparkling rhymes and rythms and delightful illustrations reveal with delicate sensitivities events that most children experience as they are growing up. Written about the life of one family, readers have attested that it belongs to all. From the early childhood expeirence of "Johnny One Hop", through the wonderful reflections about whether "Can God See Me" to the galloping saddle-back rhythms of "Round-up time", no reader - young or old - will be untouched. In store for all who read these verses will be wit and wisdom, wonder and relaxation, as well as tears and laughter found in wholesome family living. It is a book that, once started, is difficult to put down - in the initial and subsequent readings.

Introducing the Dante Papers Trilogy: Introductory Papers on Dante Further Papers on Dante The Poetry of Search and the Poetry of Statement This introductory volume of essays on Dante by Dr. Dorothy L. Sayers will be eagerly sought by the many thousands of readers who already know her vigorous and vivid translation of the Inferno. As those who have heard Miss Sayer's lectures on Dante can testify, she brings to the interpretation of the Divine Comedy a vitalizing power of analysis and re-creation. Readers of Dante often become discouraged by the mass of factual detail which the older school of historical criticism has made available; mere aestheticism, however, unrelated to the time and space, is nor likely to satisfy them either. They will find in Miss Sayers' essays enough scholarly assistance to put themselves in the position of a contemporary reader; but their attention will chiefly be drawn to the relevance of the Divine Comedy to our present day world and way of life. Miss Sayers' emphasis on the ethical, rather than on the aesthetic, or historical, significance of Dante's work, comes as a welcome and bracing challenge to the confusion regarding values, whether of literature or of life, which characterizes the present age.

The iPhone camera is a sophisticated device. It has compelled millions of people worldwide to take a new or renewed interest in photography. Let’s face it: most of us now have a tiny yet highly competent camera in a pocket or purse at all times these days, and we use it to grab shots of people, places, and things more and more often as the technology improves—and you know what? We’re largely pleased with those captures. If you’re a SERIOUS photographer, you may be wondering just how much mileage you can get out of your “simple,” ever-ready iPhone camera. Well, the answer may surprise you. In this book, Michael Fagans deconstructs photos taken in 60 scenarios—with a diverse array of subjects, in changing lighting conditions, in places that present unique challenges—showing you how to use solid, traditional photographic techniques to create great shots. Yes, Fagans will teach you the basics of creating a great photo. But there’s far more: He’ll show you that an iPhone, with the aid of apps, can mimic looks achieved by vintage cameras, a range of lenses, and countless filters. In this book, Fagans teaches you how to use free and low-cost apps and Instagram options to create (or, rather, re-create) beloved vintage-photo effects that you’d achieve with the Holga (a plastic vintage camera known for its unexpected lens distortion) and medium-format-camera looks. You’ll learn how to choose and use digital lenses, filters, and effects—and combine and re-combine them–to intensify color and contrast, de-saturate color, introduce lens aberrations, play with the grain and color cast in the image, and much, much more. What to emulate the look of vintage film stock to create a photo with an aged, time-worn feel? No problem. Want to introduce a little focusing inaccuracy for effect? Easily done. Want to do these things AND use traditional, professional artificial lighting sources (think a large softbox), a professional image-editing platform (Photoshop), and really refine your message while pulling out all the stops? Fagans shows you how. The deconstruction of the images in this book makes it worth the price of admission. Still, however, there is far more: Fagans is a photographer’s photographer. The book is peppered with inspiring quotes from Ansel Adams, Minor White, and countless other photographic visionaries that speak to the heart of photography.
