Ransome kept Swallow until he sold her a number of years later, while Mavis remained in the Altounyan family and is now on permanent display in the Windermere Steamboat Museum. Spurrier's drawing for the dust jacket had to be retained, and also the endpaper map.

Audible, the audio book arm of Amazon, has created self-guided audio tours of a number of our offices.

Ransome then provided drawings for the two books already published Swallows and Amazons and Swallowdale to replace Webb's drawings in later editions. We got soaked from the branches above. Additionally, a wall of British, American and European magazines offers up virtually every cultural title available. There is a lot to explore, with a vibrant arts and theatre community, acres of public parks, museums, several professional sports teams and different outdoor activities for all seasons — like going on a day trip to hike Mount Rainier. The actual existence of the Amazons, or other matriarchal cultures in the ancient world, was once hotly debatedthe modern discussion about them beginning with Swiss law professor and classical scholar Johann Jakob Bachofen who asserted in a thesis that they were not just myth and did in fact exist. For example, the children said we want to go to the island, so they sorted it all out, and then they sailed themselves to the island.

Biophilia — the idea that humans want to feel more connected to nature — inspired our newest buildings, The Spheres, which are an extension of our workspace. It offered a somewhat subversive statement on traditional female roles and status in Classical Greece. The majority of filming, which took place in Cumbria, was shot outdoors unlike other locations, which was done mostly in a studio.

Favorite place in England? With being in The Lakes we are not in the centre of the action and it's very peaceful. Filming was different as quite often we were in really remote places and we had to carry everything there, including the toilets and the kitchen!
