Chapter 2
The Mother Tongue

The making of English is the story of three invasions and a cultural revolution. In the simplest terms, the language was brought to Britain by Germanic tribes, the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes, influenced by Latin and Greek when St Augustine and his followers converted England to Christianity, subtly enriched by the Danes, and finally transformed by the French‑speaking Normans.

From the beginning, English was a crafty hybrid, made in war and peace. It was, in the words of Daniel Defoe, ‘your Roman‑Saxon‑Danish‑Norman English’. In the course of one thousand years, a series of violent and dramatic events created a new language which, by the time of Geoffrey Chaucer, was intelligible to modern eyes and ears without the aid of subtitles.

The English have always accepted the mixed blood of their language. There was a vague understanding that they were part of a European language family, but it was not until the eighteenth century that a careful investigation by a gifted amateur linguist began to decipher the true extent of this common heritage.
The Common Source

In the early days of the Raj, Sir William Jones, a British judge stationed in India, presented a remarkable address to the Asiatick Society in Calcutta, the fruits of his investigations into ancient Sanskrit. A keen lawyer, Jones had originally intended to familiarize himself with India’s native law codes. To his surprise, he discovered that Sanskrit bore a striking resemblance to two other ancient languages of his acquaintance, Latin and Greek. The Sanskrit word for father, transliterated from its exotic alphabet, emerged as pitar, astonishingly similar, he observed, to the Greek and Latin pater. The Sanskrit for mother was matar; in the Latin of his school days, it was mater. Investigating further, he discovered dozens of similar correspondences. Though he was not the first to notice these similarities, no one before Sir William Jones had studied them systematically. The Sanskrit language, he announced to the Asiatick Society on that evening of 2 February 1786, shared with Greek and Latin a stronger affinity … than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong, indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists

GAR0242 BOEK: ‘de Megalietenbouwers’, Francis HITCHING

 'de Megalietenbouwers', Francis HITCHING
DESCRIPTION: DE MEGALIETENBOUWERS Verspreid langs de kusten van Europa bevinden zich tal van overblijfselen uit ons verre verleden. Daar verheffen zich even geheimzinnig als spookachtig de door hoge stenen gevormde cirkels, de dolmens en de grafheuvels, die ons herinneren aan een tijdperk van ver voor het ontstaan van het wiel, meer dan vijfduizend jaar geleden. Met welk doel vele van deze monumenten door de Europese megalitische mens werden opgericht is een der grootste mysteries, een mysterie dat nog altijd een bron vormt van eindeloze en vaak hoog oplaaiende discussies onder archeologen, historici, para-psychologen en zelfs onder religieuze fanatici.
Op fascinerende wijze onderwerpt Francis Hitching de vele argumenten van de elkaar bestrijdende partijen aan een eerlijk en openhartig onderzoek. Hij voegt die argumenten aaneen tot ze in elkaar passen als de stukken van een gigantische legpuzzel en versterkt daarbij gaandeweg het geloof in de thans veld winnende opvatting, dat de mensen die duizend jaar voor het ontstaan van de piramiden de aarde bevolkten beslist niet de barbaren waren voor wie wij hen eeuwen lang hebben gehouden. Integendeel, in dit boek wordt onthuld dat zij, hoewel onbekend met de geschreven taal, een beschaving bezaten van bijzonder hoog peil en dat zij in welhaast volkomen harmonie leefden met de aarde en haar geheimen.
In Amerika werd De megalietenbouwers door de Book-of” the-Month Club gekozen tot keuzeboek van de maand. Francis Hitching Is zowel lid van het Royal lnstitute of Archaeology als van de Prehistorie Society in Engeland.

GAR0245 MANUAL -‘Modern Carbon Printing’ -Louis NADEAU

last  |   next

'Modern Carbon Printing' -Louis NADEAU
DESCRIPTION:
Now that his History and Practice of Carbon Processes (1982 ), is out of print, Luis Nadeau has completely revised and expanded the sections of his first book that related to monochrome carbon transfer processes, to create ‘Modern Carbon Printing’. This new book is the most thorough guide available on the subject. Particular emphasis has been placed on the manufacture of home made materials , especially in regard to the selection of suitable permanent pigments , emulsion
making (dispersions) and coating methods. Step by step instructions guide the worker through the production of what have been described as the most beautiful and most permanent of photographic processes: printing in carbon and carbro. Artistic media par excellence , these
processes have been preferred for many years by photograp hers who want the ultimate in terms of photographic reproduction.

The Author:
Having over 12 years of full-time experience and research in the field of conservation of photographic materials, Luis Nadeau has been consulted by many well-known museums, archives, manufacturers, collectors, and photographers, in Europe and in North America. His previous
works, History and Practice of Carbon Processes (1982) History and Practice of Platinum Printing (1984), and History and Practice of Oil and Bromoil Printing (1985) are now used as textual and reference manuals by more than 50 American universities and other institutions in at least 30 countries. The author owns and operates the only FRESSON lab outside France and was the first to commercially produce permanent tricolour carbon prints for well-known photographers and institutions.

Jan van TOORN - Design beyond Design
DESCRIPTION:
Jan van Toorn (Ed.)
Design beyond design. Critical reflection and the practice of visual communication
English — 192 pp — 170 x 245 mm — colour and b&w illustrations
ISBN 90-6617-224-x
Out of print
Design beyond design. Critical reflection and the practice of visual communication is devoted to the discrepancy between the socio-economic and symbolic reality of the worldwide information and consumer culture and the prospects for a democratisation of the media. More, in particular, it deals with the role of practical intellectuals as visual producers in this development. It concentrates on a communication design that deliberately aims at ‘abolishing the boundaries between the everyday and aesthetic experience’ and puts the strategies and forms of expression of the operational and reflexive traditions on the table for discussion. Initiatives in areas outside the preserve of official design are discussed, as well as dialogic forms of visual communication within design aimed at the formation of independent opinion and participation.

Editorial Reviews
“Lippard skillfully shows the ‘primal urge’ is a core issue in ‘post-modernist’ art. . . it is invaluable as an insider’s synthesis capturing the consciousness of vanguard art in the recent past.” — Village Voice

“Lucy Lippard has skillfully blended sun, moon, myth, and ritual in a search for the meaning and social function of art.” — Gerald Hawkins, author of Stonehenge Decoded and Mindsteps to the Cosmos

“The book’s strength lies in the depth of the author’s commitment–her dual loyalty to tradition and modernity and her effort to restore the broken connection between the two.” — New York Times Book Review

About the Author

She has authored twenty-three books, has curated more than fifty major exhibitions, and holds nine honorary doctorates of fine arts.

Oscar Marzaroli Shades of Grey

GAR0253 Photography Books ‘Shades of Grey’

DESCRIPTION “SHADES OF GREY – Glasgow 1956-1987
Photographs by Oscar Marzaroli
Words by William McIlvanney
This remarkable book marks the conjunction of two substantial talents and their shared experience which is the Glasgow of the past thirty years. While William Mcilvannev, writer, was steeping himself in the atmosphere of mid-fifties Glasgow as a student. Oscar Marzaroli, photographer, was beginning work as a freelance photo-journalist in the city. One way or another. Glasgow has remained an enduring influence on both men. In ‘Shades of Grey’, each pays their particular tribute to a famous city in the process of change. Marzaroli’s photographs record not only the fabric of Glasgow old and new but also, through photo sequences, the character and the characters of the city. His view of Glasgow can bear comparison with other important photographers’ views of their favoured places. No other photographer has caught the look and life of Glasgow with comparable accuracy and sympathy or produced images that we can relate to so strongly. This comprehensive collection of Marzaroli’s Glasgow photographs, selected from thousands of prints, is not just another book of photographs. It is a work that will rapidly become a permanent part of Scotland’s visual heritage. McIlvanney’s text, with its subjective impressions, complements perfectly the objective images from Marzaroli’s camera.

Oscar Marzaroli was born in Castiglione Vara, Northern Italy, in 1933 his family moved to Glasgow when he was two, settling in the Garnethill area of the city. Courses in Glasgow School of Art were interrupted by illness. After working as a photographic assistant in Glasgow he moved to Stockholm to work as a freelance photo-journalist for a few years before moving to London. Returning to .. (continued on Back Flap ..)
