              In 1895, armed with their faith and their wits, the enterprising Sisters of the Community of the Church opened a tiny Anglican school at Marlton Crescent in the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda. One hundred and twenty-five years later, St Michael's Grammar School is one of Australia'...s top educational institutions, both utterly modern and deeply connected to its history and traditions. The School's values, passed down from the founding Sisters, have linked generations of staff and students in a long line of academic excellence and community service. In this book, Professor Stuart Kells tells the lively story of St Michael's, celebrating the people and moments that have transformed it from its modest, devout origins through to the innovative K-12 institution it is today. Lavishly illustrated with more than 250 photographs and artefacts from the School's archives, The Art of Being Different pays tribute to this special place, on the occasion of its 125th anniversary.

              A ground-breaking and amusing counter-history of Penguin Books, with a strong new Australian angle. How did the three Lane brothers enter publishing and built Penguin into a global publishing powerhouse? Innovation and creative opposition among them provided Penguin's secret weap...on. The Lane boys did their best thinking together in bathroom board-meetings where at least one director would always be 'mother naked'. The war, though, brought tragedy for the family. John Lane's 1942 death in action during the North African landings shattered the brothers' intimate partnership. Richard Lane went on to share with his brother Allen the leadership of one of the first global media businesses. The Lanes built a firm and a brand that became synonymous not only with paperbacks but with a certain kind of publishing - switched-on, progressive, engaging. With its low price mass-distribution model, Penguin became a vast 'poor man's university' and a prototype internet made from paper and ink. Australia featured prominently in the lives of the Lanes. Richard Lane came to Australia when a young man, and later helped establish and lead Penguin Australia, which was so successful that it enabled its UK parent to stave off bankruptcy in the 1960s and 1970s. With unprecedented access to Lane family sources, including Richard's diaries and other papers, Stuart Kells' book sheds new light on the relationship between Richard and John Lane, so crucial as a driver and influencer of Penguin's spirit and success. It restores Richard to his rightful place in the story. Agatha Christie, Thomas Hardy, Bernard Shaw, Arthur Conan Doyle and Graham Greene are just some of the literary figures who appear in the book and add another rich layer to what is a fascinating story of an unlikely publishing triumph.
