Rushlow, Bonnie B.
2003 is the 100th anniversary of Crayola crayons! Most of us can remember opening that new green and yellow box of Crayola crayons in our childhood with their distinctive and familiar smell of the brand-new, waxy crayons. The author presents a rich history of the Binney and Smith Company, a chronology of changes made in crayon colours and packaging through the years, descriptions and current values, and other interesting facts and trivia about Crayola crayons. 380 Colour photographs show a wealth of early Binney & Smith distinctive tins and boxes of crayons, chalks, and paints. In addition collectors today can find artwork, toys, games, puzzles, and an array of other products with the familiar serpentire and chevron trademarked designs, as well as the newer Crayola rainbow swash trademarked products. With this book the author, Bonnie Rushlow, brings back long-forgotten childhood memories through a myriad of Crayola collectibles from 1903 to the modern era. 160pp.

Caraccilo, Dominic J.
Few American prisoners of war during World War II suffered more than the group that was captured on the Bataan Peninsula in the Philippines. The men were forced to endure the infamous Death March, a series of overcrowded prison camps, and the 'hell ships' transporting them to Japan and Korea. Among them was Colonel Irvin Alexander, who recounts his harrowing experience as a captive of the Japanese. As a midlevel commander, he knew the politics behind the surrender in April 1942, but he also suffered with the rest of the men through a horrific confinement. This is the story of one man's struggle to survive a brutal, often unfathomable captivity.342pp.

Logue,Mary
They stand at once as silent reminders of time past as well as the hub of our daily lives. They are the focus of activity in every county - the site of political speeches, holiday parades, and community picnics. They are the courthouses of Minnesota's eighty-seven counties. Writes author Mary Logue, "With a clock tower, the courthouse becomes metaphor, literally the ticking heart at the centre of a county." In this beautiful book are photographs celebrating the variety of Minnesota's county courthouses. From the classic Beaux Arts dome atop the Stearns County Courthouse to the unadorned simplicity of the Sibley County Courthouse, this book offers a parade of some of the finest public buildings in the North Star State. Paired with Doug Ohman's photos is an essay by poet and mystery writer Mary Logue that reveals the secrets of these buildings we thought we knew. Together they tell the story of these distinctly American structures, symbols of the ways Minnesotans live under the law - with justice, equality, and fairness. "Courthouses of Minnesota" is the third book in the "Minnesota Byways" series, a sumptuous photographic survey showcasing the state's classic architectural icons and paired with some of the best writers in the state. 128pp.
