Re: Old books and the illustrations therein

That’s wonderful news, Andy - thank you so much as always for your speedy and erudite reply! I had been pondering this issue for some time as I frequently haunt secondhand bookshops in the hope of picking up copyright-free material (particularly old Victorian art books) - I have always been slightly...

Old books and the illustrations therein

Hi again guys Wonder if you can help with this one, please? It’s a bit contorted and I would (possibly!) know the answer if I was dealing with the first layer of the enquiry but am not sure about the historical aspect. I am thinking about buying a book and would like to use the illustrations for a d...

Re: WW2 Naval Publication Maps

Thank you, Nick. I’ll get my friend to check out the National Archive, too. She already has an artist on the starting blocks, I think, as regards the map so it would be good to look at other sources.

Thank you all, as always, for such great advice.

Best regards

Sally

Re: WW2 Naval Publication Maps

Hi ATMOSBOB

Thank you - we won’t give up on the publisher just yet then! And no, we never gave the Smithsonian a thought, but will now - this is worth knowing and I’ll pass this on to my friend. A great lead!

Thank you again.

Best regards

Re: WW2 Naval Publication Maps

Hi again Andy What a great thought! Very many thanks for this - I know that my friend has access to the arts community here and could get a map re-drawn. It’s the perfect solution and one that never crossed my mind. It would be a good idea to contact the Admiralty, too, as you suggest. Am so glad I ...

Re: WW2 Naval Publication Maps

Hi Andy Thank you for your speedy and erudite response. It looks as though we may have to go back to the drawing board with this one - I can’t see a way around this (and we obviously can’t force the publisher to respond). I think I may suggest that my friend finds something suitable in a more recent...

Re: WW2 Naval Publication Maps

Hello again guys Sorry to keep harping on with this one - any advice gratefully received! We seem to have hit a brick wall with the permissions to publish. I have written to Batsford giving full details of the publication and, as nothing happened whatsoever, thought I would try MacMillan (who republ...

Re: Photo Effects Filters and Filter Apps

Hi Andy Thank you so much for your speedy and knowledgeable reply, as always. I had been pondering over this for a while as, on the one hand, it would seem odd to give one access to a tool that one couldn’t use publicly but, on the other, it seems to be ‘cheating’ (and using someone else’s design ta...

Photo Effects Filters and Filter Apps

Good morning All Sorry to be back so soon! I’ve had a quick trawl through the searches and can’t find this (although I’m sure it must have come up before, so would be grateful if I could be pointed in the right direction, please). I have discovered the joys of special effects filters for pictures an...

Re: Latin Mottos

Hi Andy Lovely - thank you so much as always for your sound (and speedy) advice! I think I’ll try to stick to those quotes which either have a sizeable fan base or those which I’m fairly sure were recorded a few centuries back. In truth, I hadn’t really contemplated the possibility that some of the ...

Latin Mottos

Good afternoon guys Am just about to launch myself into another project and I’d like to be able to use a Latin phrase in my needlework (a tad pretentious, I grant you, but there you have it). I had assumed (wrongly, probably) that as Latin is a dead language I would be on safe ground here. I have fo...

Re: WW2 Naval Publication Maps

Hi Andy

Thank you so much for your speedy and knowledgeable reply - you really are a marvel (as Bertie Wooster would say!).

I shall pass on the good news regarding the HMSO publication to my friend and get to grips with Batsford. Very many thanks again as always.

Best regards

WW2 Naval Publication Maps

Hi guys Hoping you can help with this one, please. It’s hugely different to my usual area of questioning and I have no idea where to start! I have been asked to help collate information for a friend who is writing her father’s memoirs. The chap concerned was in the Royal Navy and, although he had qu...

Re: Visualisation of short phrases from music and fiction

Hi again guys Sorry to go back to this one again! Was wondering..........as part of a local carnival group, have now been asked to produce a piece of costume depicting a Beatles’ song from around the Yellow Submarine era. I’d like to do ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’. I remembered that you thought ...
