"Printmaking techniques have long been used in the pottery industry but until comparatively recently ceramicists have tended to view the use of these techniques with disdain. However, attitudes are changing rapidly now as makers continue to explore creative possibilities while working with ceramic materials. In this book, Paul Scott briefly discusses the history of ceramics and print, and then concentrates on the techniques used by contemporary ceramicists. These include: screen printing, both transfer decoration and working directly onto clay; photographic processes; sponge printing; stamped ware; linocuts; prints from plaster slabs; and other printmaking techniques such as etching, lithography, computer-generated and laser prints, and the use of photocopiers."--Jacket

The birds of paradise by Paul Scott( Book )

55 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Scott is most famous for his much-beloved tetralogy "The Raj Quartet," an epic that chronicles the end of the British rule in India with a cast of vividly and memorably drawn characters. Inspired by Scott's own time spent in India during World War II, this powerful novel provides valuable insight into how foreign lands changed the British who worked and fought in them, hated and loved them. A coming of age tale, "The Birds of Paradise "is the story of a boy and his childhood friendship with the daughter of a British diplomat and the son of the Raja. Scott artfully brings his young narrator's voice to life with evocative language and an eye for detail, capturing the pangs of childhood and the bittersweet fog of memory with nostalgic yet immediate prose"--Provided by the publisher

Chinese love pavilion by Paul Scott( Book )

53 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Bombay in the 1930s a young British clerk named Tom Brent is persuaded by a botanist named Saxby to stay on in India. Saxby is that rare Englishman who really understands Indian culture, but he's also elusive and deeply flawed. Years later, after Tom has become a soldier and been wounded in Burma, he is sent on a mission to Malaya to track down Saxby, now suspected of murder. The second half of the novel, set in 1945 (a time when Scott was in Malaya), is a strange brew of exotic romance, tensions between army officers, and the mystery of the jungle: its cultures, religions, and fauna. The love pavilion is where Tom meets his Eurasian lover and imagines he can escape the constraints of British colonial notions of manhood
