Journeys out of time into unusual places where the enthralling and involving narrative and wonderful pictures come together to focus particular attention on Art, Astronomy, Travel and much more besides.


The dreams of Liu To



This story by Roberto Piumini is a genuine voyage of discovery into the art of the lute-maker, a complex journey that examines the skill, dedication and passion that result in the creation of this beautiful instrument, and ends up by looking at the fascinating relationship that is established between the craftsman and the musician once the instrument has been finished. Through the use of added in-depth information and extra material, four fact sheets focus on the artistic value of the lute-maker’s profession and the tremendous wealth of an ancient tradition that is ready to be re-discovered, and brought back to life for future generations.

"You can 't make a good violin on the assembly line,
ten, a hundred, a thousand, all alike
You have to make it one at a time: your
for each of them, must be special."
