Trade Student Children’s Gifts



Like you, we are looking forward to Spring 2022: a bright new season full of freedom and hope—and great books and gifts. What better way to start than with our angels deck? In Angels for the Modern Mystic you won’t find rose-cheeked Renaissance cherubs but rather modern entities in tune with contemporary concerns who are capable of inspiring even the most hard-nosed urban skeptic to let the light in and access their full potential. Speaking of finding transcendence in contemporary life, this Spring we turn to that great guru, performance artist Marina Abramović, and publish her method for the first time (it helped Lady Gaga quit smoking). And just in case you need bit of extra wind under your sails, make sure you have The Box of Luck by your side. The natural world is very much at the forefront of all our minds and we continue to explore its wonders, from Jack Wallington’s manifesto A Greener Life to the wildlife photographs of David Yarrow, and from the treetops of our Around the World in 50 Trees jigsaw puzzle to the bottom of the ocean with the games Deep Sea Discovery and Who’s Hiding in the Ocean? But before you set off to change the world, we’ll help sustain you in the healthiest and most original way with The Green Lunchbox and Mind & Bowl: A Guide to Mindful Eating. And if your mind, or mindfulness, requires further stimulation, please note that we continue to innovate in the jigsaw area with the first of our collaborative puzzles, Dog Day Out!, and the latest of our challenging cluster puzzles, 299 Fish and a Diver, not to mention the exclusive, show-stopping 1000-piece jigsaw The World of Agatha Christie celebrating the astonishing life and work of the doyenne of crime fiction (who among other things was also a pioneer of surfing!). As this is the season of hope and positivity, I would like to mention two publications on a subject that has been in all our minds. Our Black Heroes card game features great historical role models from Nelson Mandela to Simone Biles (via Queen Nzinga and Angela Davis), while the groundbreaking photography showcase As We See It features forty black photographers who bring a fresh perspective on black identity. From our new home at Hachette, we would like to wish you all an inspiring Spring!

Nine-year-old Edward VI 33 became king in 1547. His hated uncle, Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset, ruled as regent, advancing the Protestant Reformation. Witness his arrest 34 on trumped up charges in 1552. The girl, trying on the crown, is Protestant Lady Jane Grey 35. Named as Edward’s heir, her ‘reign’ lasted just nine days before his half-sister, Mary I 36 became queen with popular acclaim. Mary’s marriage to Philip of Spain was unpopular, as was her Catholicism. She burned Protestants, including Archbishop Thomas Cranmer 37.

For most, life was far removed from palaces. Cities, such as London, were packed with tall half-timber houses 7, with the upper floors overhanging the street. Watch t hese children at play 8 with leapfrog and hoop and stick popular. All ages enjoyed board games 9, including chess and backgammon. Stop by to watch the printer working 10, too. The first English press was established in 1476, revolutionising book production. Here we can see an apprentice learning his trade as a paper maker 11 to supply the new presses.

Moving through London, we come to old St Paul’s Cathedral 14, the capital’s tallest building. It will lose its spire to lightning in 1561 and later be destroyed by fire. Inside, the wedding of Prince Arthur and Catherine of Aragon 15 is taking place. Arthur’s early death meant his younger brother succeeded as Henry VIII 16 in 1509. He married his brother’s widow and threw himself into the pleasures of kingship. There was jousting 17, at which he excelled, and lavish feasting 18. Henry loved hunting. Look out for the royal falconer 19, often called upon to assist the king in his sports. The government was entrusted to Cardinal Thomas Wolsey 20, the son of an Ipswich butcher. He built Hampton Court 21, a palace so magnificent that the king requested it as a present. Wolsey fell in 1529, after failing to obtain the annulment of Henry’s first marriage. He was replaced by a clever lawyer, Thomas Cromwell 22 who, along with Archbishop Thomas Cranmer and the king’s fiancé, Anne Boleyn, persuaded Henry to declare himself Supreme Head of the Church of England, beginning the Reformation. These actions were deeply unpopular. Here is prophetess Elizabeth Barton 23, the Holy Maid of Kent. After declaring God’s disapproval of Henry’s divorce, she was hanged in 1534. Anne Boleyn failed to bear Henry a son, with the king ordering her arrest on trumped up charges of adultery. She was imprisoned in the Tower of London 24, where most high-profile prisoners were held. We can see her being beheaded 25 by sword on Tower Green in 1536.

48

49

Henry’s final years saw war with France. He built a series of forts, including Deal Castle 31 in Kent, to protect the coast. Invasion was a real concern, with Henry’s finest ship, the Mary Rose 32 sunk during a naval engagement in 1545. Henry unsuccessfully attempted to have the vessel raised, with the ship waiting over 400 years on the seabed off Portsmouth.

Stepping inside the Tudor court, we find a woman at prayer. This is Margaret Beaufort 4, mother of the king and his leading advisor. Next, we meet John Blanke 5, dressed in his ceremonial robes as one of the king’s trumpeters. He probably travelled to England from Africa, via Spain. Moving into the palace kitchens, where we see young Lambert Simnel 6, who impersonated a Yorkist prince and led a rebellion. He was lucky to secure a pardon and job in the royal kitchens.

Disease was rife, with outbreaks of deadly Sweating Sickness 12, which first appeared in 1485. This young man is suffering from its fever and breathlessness, advancing rapidly. There was little benefit in consulting with doctors, who still practised the ancient humoral system. This doctor is attempting to restore balance to his patient’s humours by blood letting 13.

26

28

We start our tour at the Tudor rose emblem 1, uniting the red rose of Lancaster with the white rose of York. These rival dynasties fought for the crown before 1485, when the Lancastrian Henry Tudor met the Yorkist king Richard III in battle at Bosworth 2. Richard died fighting, ending the Wars of the Roses. The new Henry VII married Elizabeth of York 3, creating the new Tudor dynasty.

The baby in his cradle is Henry VIII’s longed-for son, Edward 26, whose birth caused the death of his mother, Jane Seymour 27. Edward had a further three stepmothers, with Anne of Cleves 28, Catherine Howard 29 and Catherine Parr 30 following in quick succession. Unsurprisingly, since Henry had already beheaded two wives, Catherine Parr was a reluctant bride.

Mary was followed by her half-sister, Elizabeth I 38, who was expected to quickly marry. The leading candidate was Robert Dudley 39, who wooed her for years, inviting her to stay at his residences of Warwick Castle 40 and Kenilworth Castle 41. She also refused many foreign suitors, although Francis, Duke of Anjou 42 proved persistent. Nicknaming him her ‘frog’, Elizabeth was delighted when he came in person to propose, although he too failed. Many Puritans, such as the writer John Foxe 43, complained that Elizabeth’s Protestant religious settlement did not go far enough. Catholic worship became illegal, with some smuggling priests into their houses and hiding them in priest holes 44. Others threw their support behind the Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots, who had been forced to abdicate her Scottish crown. During twenty years of imprisonment, her gaolers included the reluctant Bess of Hardwick 45, who had amassed an enormous fortune due to her shrewd business acumen. Desperate to be freed, Mary plotted against Elizabeth, leading to her execution 46 for treason in 1587. The execution of a sovereign monarch shocked Europe, with Philip of Spain resolving to invade. Elizabeth’s fleet was led by Sir Francis Drake 47, who was famously playing bowls when the Armada was sighted. Drake’s seamanship and a ‘Protestant wind’ scattered the Spanish Armada before it could land troops. Elizabeth’s reign was a golden age. Here are the playwrights Christopher Marlowe 48, William Shakespeare 49 and Ben Jonson50, whose work was performed in London’s packed theatres. Sir Walter Raleigh 51 is here with his globe, contemplating the foundation of the first English colony in the New World in 1585. We find Abd el-Ouahed ben Messaoud 52 on his way to see Elizabeth in 1600. The Moroccan ambassador was a striking visitor, attempting to negotiate an alliance against Catholic Spain. England was still primarily rural, with shepherds 53, who supplied the lucrative English wool trade, being particularly important. Many women eked out a living spinning wool and thread 54. Vagrancy was a criminal offence, punishable by whipping, but that did little to deter growing numbers of beggars 55. Most villages owned a ducking stool 56, used to punish unruly women or to identify witches. Witches were believed to float, with those deemed innocent often drowning. We can see Elizabeth’s grand funeral procession 57, with her effigy carried amidst a crowd of black-clad mourners. With no heir, her death in 1603 brought the world of the Tudors to a close.
