Robinson in Space is a visual, satirical record of a journey made by a fictional character called Robinson, narrated by his traveling companion and researcher, through the increasingly unknown space of present-day England. Robinson quotes Oscar Wilde: "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisible. . ." His assumptions about economic failure, especially in manufacturing industry, are gradually challenged by the discovery of an industrial economy that employs few people but still generates most of the wealth of the fifth-largest economy in the world. Robinson in Space incorporates material from the award-winning film of the same name that was released just before the British 1997 General Election. The book juxtaposes the narrative and over 200 intriguing, strange-yet-familiar images from the film to take the reader on a fascinating journey through the landscapes of present-day England.
Da migliaia di anni una tavola dal valore inestimabile nasconde uno dei segreti più ambiti dall’uomo: la formula dell’eterna giovinezza. Il prezioso oggetto è stato nascosto e protetto per molto tempo dalla storia, che ne ha fatto dimenticare persino l’esistenza. Adesso, però, qualcuno intende recuperarlo ed è disposto a tutto per impossessarsene e decifrare il misterioso testo che è inciso nella pietra. Nel corso dei secoli la tavola è passata di generazione in generazione, segnando il destino di molte persone in una lunga spirale di intrighi e morte: come quello di Yagurum, un bambino vissuto mille anni prima della nascita di Cristo; di Fiammetta, giovane amante di un camerlengo nella Roma rinascimentale; di Alex Kasakian, informatico squattrinato e di Ann Carrington, brillante insegnante universitaria, esperta di linguaggi antichi.
Still recovering from a near-death experience, Homicide Detective Alexander Drake is suddenly recalled to active duty to track down a diabolical serial killer with ties to the occult.

Compiled with the aid of Five Years back issues of DONALD PARSNIPS DAILY JOURNAL, a breeze borne pamphlet and art-object that seeks to place ’encounter’ into contemporary ’mediation,’ AN A TO Z FOR THE EFFECTIVE USE OF YOUR CITY draws on the experience of The Daily Journal in content method and experience so as to impart various unorthodox methods for immediate use by the urban individual in the viewing of interacting with and relating to, their city. There is nothing new in this except in the proposition that such a book taking such a form may exist as a staple of democratisation, alongside the tour guide, map, telephone directory, listings magazine, planning office plannchest, and book review column in local and international newspapers.
