The Chinese Cinema Book: Song Lim, Julian Ward
Agatha Christie meets St Trinian´s in this delightful new middle grade mystery series! Daphne is off to St Rita´s, an exclusive girls´ boarding school. It sounds awfully respectable, and Daphne herself is awfully respectable, too. She loves to read and is delighted to be offered the chance to interview for librarian´s assistant´s assistant immediately upon arrival. But it turns out nothing is quite what you´d expect at St Rita´s - you can´t trust a padlock if the fourth graders are around, the floor has holes from cannonballs, the smell in the dining room is disgustingly foul and Daphne discovers the librarian doesn´t really exist. But there is a librarian´s assistant, Emily Lime. And she´s really a crime-solving genius who´s looking for a new assistant of her own. And book-smart Daphne is just the girl for the job, because mystery and intrigue are about to strike St Rita´s, and Emily Lime is going to need all the help she can get.... 1. Language: English.

Traditional mortars are eminently workable, effectively porous, economic in use and appropriately durable. Used in buildings for thousands of years, these materials are ideal for repair and conservation work. Unlike cement or modern hydraulic lime, their routine use would make a significant contribution in the struggle against climate change. However, despite the 1975 ´lime revival´ there remains a deficit in research into the most-used traditional mortars. This book seeks to redress the balance. Drawing upon historic literature, material science and industry case studies, topics covered include: a historical overview of traditional mortars; slaking and mixing hot mixed lime mortars; the essentials of pozzolans, aggregates and lime tempering; plasters, lime washes and sheltercoats, and finally, the revival of interest in the use of like-for-like and compatible mortars. A comprehensive book on the true understanding of hot mixing limes and traditional mortars for the twenty-first century. It is fully illustrated with 286 colour photographs and 11 line artworks. Nigel Copsey is an accredited conservator-restorer and works as a Research Associate in the Dept of Archaeology, University of York.
