Reiter Christiane Great Escapes Mediterranean
The Mediterranean is a mythical place, with three continents - Europe, Africa and Asia - and 21 countries sharing its coastline. These disparate cultures are all blessed with its fine climate, luxuriant fauna and flora, and the intense blues of its sea. Angelika Taschen has discovered the very best of this legendary region. Included here are the glamorous Eden-Roc on the Cote d'Azur, the stylish Monte Carlo Beach created by India Mahdavi, the hotel Stella Maris north of Portofino - accessible only by boat or trekking - and of course the famous Amalfi Coast with its numerous beautiful hotels. Add to these the tiny hotel on the small Croatian island of Lopud, the exclusive Perivolas in Santorini, and last but not least, the new branch of the Hotel Nord-Pinus in Tangier, looking out at the Straits of Gibraltar. Highlights include the Hotel Le Corbusier in the "Cite Radieuse", a Le Corbusier building in the residential district of Marseille, built in 1952; Casadelmar on Corsica, set in beautiful gardens overlooking Porto Vecchio, where every room has a sea view; and the enchanting private rocky beach Cala Piccola of the remote hotel Torre di Cala Piccola on the little-known Tuscan island of Argentario, which takes you back to 1960s Italy. Other gems include the charming La Locanda del Barbablu (with only six rooms) on the mythical island of Stromboli, set in the shadow of its active volcano; the amazing hotels in the "masserie" of Apulia, such as the Borgo San Marco in Fasano; and the beautifully designed Orloff Resort near the Old Harbour of Spetses, a small Greek Island which relaxes the eyes and calms the mind. About the editor: Angelika Taschen studied art history and German literature in Heidelberg, gaining her doctorate in 1986. Working for TASCHEN since 1987, she has published numerous titles on art, architecture, photography, design, travel, and lifestyle. Texts by: Christiane Reiter is a freelance author based in Hamburg. She studied journalism at the University of Eichstatt and worked as a travel editor for Ringier Publishing in Munich and Zurich. She then established the travel section of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung. For TASCHEN she has also written the texts for Great Escapes Asia, Great Escapes South America, and Great Escapes Mediterranean. Издание на английском, французском и немецком языках.

Rubesamen Kristin Great Yoga Retreats
Looking for a tranquil vacation that leaves you relaxed, restored and uplifted? Then try a Yoga retreat. Even if enlightenment is not your aim, you'll definitely achieve a luminous glow. Yogis understand the positive influence of natural surroundings and feng shui on the body, mind and soul, while the healthy organic food (almost always vegetarian) served at most retreats leaves you feeling lighter and purified. Whether you go by yourself, with a friend or partner, or even in a group, you will always find friendly company. Angelika Taschen has found the most exquisite and inspirational Yoga retreats around the world: choose from an exotic luxury hotel in Bhutan, a spiritual ashram in India, a farmhouse in Tuscany or a beach resort in Mexico. But be warned, Yoga can easily become a way of life. You might find yourself planning your days and even holidays around Yoga practice. Highlights include the Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh, the birthplace of Yoga, one of the holy cities of the Ganges and a renowned pilgrimage site, where the Beatles attended the Maharishi's ashram in 1968; Yogamagic, an eco-retreat in Goa on the gentle Indian Ocean. Italy is not just a destination for the cultural and culinary traveller but also for the dedicated Yogi: Il Convento in Tuscany and Santa Maria del Sole in Puglia strike a balance between Yoga and the sensual Italian lifestyle. The Esalen Institute in Big Sur is a legendary New Age destination, offering Yoga and much more, with over 500 spiritual and physical workshops; while Amansala's Bikini Boot Camp in Tulum, Mexico, combines beach life with Yoga classes. About the editor: Angelika Taschen studied art history and German literature in Heidelberg, gaining her doctorate in 1986. Working for TASCHEN since 1987, she has published numerous titles on art, architecture, photography, design, travel, and lifestyle. Texts by: Kristin Rubesamen holds an MA in German and Russian literature. Her two novels (Spater, Baby, 2003, Hitzefrei, 2007) were published by Random House and she is a contributing editor for Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, Suddeutsche Zeitung, and German Vogue. A certified senior Jivamukti Yoga teacher, she lives and teaches in Berlin.

Schmidt-Loske Katharina Maria Sibylla Merian, Insects of Surinam
At a time when few women were educated or literate - and rarely travelled - German-born naturalist and artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) made history with her studies of insects in Surinam. Trained as a copperplate engraver and watercolorist, she documented the metamorphosis of butterflies, laying the foundation for modern entomology. What Merian observed when breeding native species of butterfly triggered her curiosity, and spurred her to further investigation; the development from ovum, via larva and chrysalis, to adult butterfly was not fully understood in the 17th century. And not every pupa developed into a butterfly, which puzzled Merian for a long time. On seeing a collection of butterflies from Dutch Guiana, modern Surinam, she decided to study tropical flora and fauna, to discover whether the moths and butterflies she saw in collections shared the same life cycle as those she had bred: the egg and caterpillar stage. In 1699 she sailed for South America with daughter Dorothea, the first time any woman had ventured on a journey of exploration on this scale. Having evaluated and categorized her specimens, in 1705 she published her major work Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium, in Dutch and Latin. She made 60 copperplate engravings to illustrate the stages of insect development, arranged around the cultivated and wild plants she had encountered on her travels. With its detailed text and imagery, the Metamorphosis is the first work on the natural history of Surinam. For 17th century Europeans it was an insight into an unknown world. TASCHEN's reprint of a hand-colored first edition copy, belonging to the University Library of Basel, includes the complete plates with a commentary by Katharina Schmidt-Loske. Merian accomplished a pioneering achievement of the modern age. This publication pays homage to her work and offers readers an opportunity to appreciate her sumptuous engravings. About the author: Katharina Schmidt-Loske studied biology in Munster, Bonn, and Frankfurt am Main, with a focus on insects and reptiles, and has worked as a book illustrator. She earned her doctorate at the University of Bonn with a dissertation entitled Die Tierwelt der Maria Sibylla Merian (The Fauna of Maria Sibylla Merian), published in 2007. In 2008 she was appointed director of the Biohistoricum at the Museum Koenig, Bonn.

She made 60 copperplate engravings to illustrate the stages of insect development, arranged around the cultivated and wild plants she had encountered on her travels. With its detailed text and imagery, the Metamorphosis is the first work on the natural history of Surinam. For 17th century Europeans it was an insight into an unknown world. TASCHEN's reprint of a hand-colored first edition copy, belonging to the University Library of Basel, includes the complete plates with a commentary by Katharina Schmidt-Loske. Merian accomplished a pioneering achievement of the modern age. This publication pays homage to her work and offers readers an opportunity to appreciate her sumptuous engravings. About the author: Katharina Schmidt-Loske studied biology in Munster, Bonn, and Frankfurt am Main, with a focus on insects and reptiles, and has worked as a book illustrator. She earned her doctorate at the University of Bonn with a dissertation entitled Die Tierwelt der Maria Sibylla Merian (The Fauna of Maria Sibylla Merian), published in 2007. In 2008 she was appointed director of the Biohistoricum at the Museum Koenig, Bonn.
Fussel Stephan The Bible in Pictures
Lucas Cranach's incendiary illustrations for Luther's 1534 Bible: the book that changed Christianity forever. Martin Luther's Bible, published in 1534, was the first complete German Bible and a pivotal event in the history of Christianity. Luther's revolutionary translation, modern in vernacular and interpretation, made the Bible accessible to laypeople, fueled anger and revulsion toward Rome and the Papacy, and begat a new religion: Protestantism. The most desirable copies came with shockingly graphic and politically-charged illustrations, such as those depicting the Whore of Babylon riding a seven-headed beast while wearing the Papal crown, or the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse led by a Turkish soldier. About the author: Stephan Fussel is director of the Institute of the History of the Book at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, and holder of the Gutenberg Chair at the same university. He has published prolifically on the early days of printing, the sale and publication of books between the 18th and 20th centuries, and the future of communications.

Jimi Hendrix
Raised on the blues, James Marshall Hendrix exploded onto the international stage in 1967 fronting the Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. The world had seen nothing like him before: a wild-haired, blues-rocking, singer-songwriter whose virtuoso psychedelic guitar style and showmanship captivated audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Wowing fans and critics alike, Hendrix took blues-rock as the basis for a unique sound filled with amplified distortions, wild feedback and liquid solo riffs. His live performances became legendary, hallmarked with teeth-playing antics and guitar-burning rituals, while his personal life followed an equally fascinating and destructive path. Dead at just 27, Hendrix became the poster boy for the psychedelic era's sex, drugs and rock'n'roll lifestyle. Transforming the landscape of rock music forever, the seminal recordings from his four studio albums broke new ground and his unrivaled southpaw fret-work has influenced successive generations of musicians. Hendrix's music and legacy burn as brightly today as they did 40 years ago.

Dead at just 27, Hendrix became the poster boy for the psychedelic era's sex, drugs and rock'n'roll lifestyle. Transforming the landscape of rock music forever, the seminal recordings from his four studio albums broke new ground and his unrivaled southpaw fret-work has influenced successive generations of musicians. Hendrix's music and legacy burn as brightly today as they did 40 years ago.

John Lennon
One quarter of the world's most famous group, one half of the most successful songwriting team of all time and one voice for world peace - all achieved in one tragically shortened career. John Lennon's remarkable talent and uncompromising character gave him a unique and extraordinary life, achieving a level of success and public adoration that few can imagine. Never far in his mind from his working class roots, his lifestyle was conversely rich and free, his celebrity affording him a musical and political soapbox few have attained. Music Icons: Lennon takes a look at both his personal and professional life before, during and after the Beatles: the progression of his creative genius as a solo artist and songwriter, his battles with the US government, his devotion to his wife and their mutual goal for a peaceful revolution. Having become a controversial and outspoken idealist and a mercurial music legend, Lennon's senseless murder in 1980 shook the world. While his widow has continued to keep his cause and ideals alive, it is Lennon's music - both as a Beatle and as an iconic solo artist - which continues to inspire and move music lovers around the globe.

Schutze Sebastian Caravaggio. The Complete Works
Caravaggio, or more accurately Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610), was a legend even in his own lifetime. Celebrated by some for his naturalism and his revolutionary pictorial inventions, he was considered by others to have destroyed painting. Few other artists have provoked such controversy and so many contradictory interpretations right up to modern times. Just in time for the Caravaggio year 2010, this work offers a comprehensive reassessment of Caravaggio's entire oeuvre, with a catalogue raisonne of his works. Five introductory chapters analyse his artistic career from his training in Lombard Milan and his triumphal rise in papal Rome, up to his dramatic final years in Naples, Malta and Sicily. The spotlight thereby falls upon the radical nature and innovative force of Caravaggio's art and its influence in all of Europe. About the author: Sebastian Schutze was a longtime research fellow at the Bibliotheca Hertziana (Max Planck Institute for Art History) in Rome. He is a member of the academic board of the Istituto Italiano per gli Studi Filosofici in Naples and of the Institut europeen d'histoire de la Republique des Lettres in Paris. From 2003 to 2009 he held the Bader Chair in Southern Baroque Art at Queen's University in Kingston. In 2009 he was appointed Professor of Early Modern Art History at Vienna University.

Caveney Mike, Steinmeyer Jim, Jay Ricky Magic, 1400s-1950s
Magic has enchanted humankind for millennia, evoking terror, laughter, shock, and amazement. Once persecuted as heretics and sorcerers, magicians have always been conduits to a parallel universe of limitless possibility-whether invoking spirits, reading minds, or inverting the laws of nature by sleight of hand. Long before science fiction, virtual realities, video games and the internet, the craft of magic was the most powerful fantasy world man had ever known. As the pioneers of special effects throughout history, magicians have never ceased to mystify us by making the impossible possible. This book celebrates more than 500 years of the dazzling visual culture of the world's greatest magicians. Featuring more than 1,000 rarely seen vintage posters, photographs, handbills, and engravings as well as paintings by Hieronymus Bosch and Caravaggio among others, this 650-page volume traces the history of magic as a performing art from the 1400s to the 1950s. Combining sensational images with incisive text, Magic explores the evolution of the magician's craft, from medieval street performers to the brilliant stage magicians who gave rise to cinematic special effects; from the 19th century's Golden Age of Magic to groundbreaking daredevils like Houdini and the early 20th century's vaudevillians. About the editor: TASCHEN editor Noel Daniel graduated from Princeton University, and studied in Berlin on a Fulbright Scholarship. She received a master's in London and was the director of a photography art gallery before becoming a book editor. Her TASCHEN books include Magic 1400s-1950s (2009) and The Circus 1870-1950 (2008). About the authors: Mike Caveney is a writer, collector, professional magician, and the publisher of over 50 books on the theory, practice, and history of magic. His biographical works include Kellar's Wonders (2003) with Bill Miesel, and Carter the Great (1995). An avid collector and performer for over four decades, he has appeared onstage or on TV in more than 20 countries. Jim Steinmeyer is the author of many books on magic history and practice, including Los Angeles Times bestseller Hiding the Elephant (2004) and The Glorious Deception (2006). He has created deceptions featured by magicians such as Doug Henning, David Copperfield, and Siegfried and Roy, and critically acclaimed illusions for Broadway hits Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, and Into the Woods. About the contributing author: Ricky Jay is one of the world's great sleight of hand artists, and a distinguished actor, historian, and best-selling author. His Learned Pigs & Fireproof Women and Jay's Journal of Anomalies were both New York Times "Notable Books of the Year," and he defined the terms of his art for The Cambridge Guide to American Theatre and Encyclopedia Britannica.

Featuring more than 1,000 rarely seen vintage posters, photographs, handbills, and engravings as well as paintings by Hieronymus Bosch and Caravaggio among others, this 650-page volume traces the history of magic as a performing art from the 1400s to the 1950s. Combining sensational images with incisive text, Magic explores the evolution of the magician's craft, from medieval street performers to the brilliant stage magicians who gave rise to cinematic special effects; from the 19th century's Golden Age of Magic to groundbreaking daredevils like Houdini and the early 20th century's vaudevillians. About the editor: TASCHEN editor Noel Daniel graduated from Princeton University, and studied in Berlin on a Fulbright Scholarship. She received a master's in London and was the director of a photography art gallery before becoming a book editor. Her TASCHEN books include Magic 1400s-1950s (2009) and The Circus 1870-1950 (2008). About the authors: Mike Caveney is a writer, collector, professional magician, and the publisher of over 50 books on the theory, practice, and history of magic. His biographical works include Kellar's Wonders (2003) with Bill Miesel, and Carter the Great (1995).

He has created deceptions featured by magicians such as Doug Henning, David Copperfield, and Siegfried and Roy, and critically acclaimed illusions for Broadway hits Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, and Into the Woods.

Хааг Мартина Самая-самая, всеми любимая
Эта первая книга Мартины Хааг, шведской актрисы, писательницы и журналистки, сразу же вызвала бурный восторг критики и читателей. Жизнь героини романа явно не задалась: 34 года, а ни семьи, ни карьеры, которую она мечтала сделать в кино или театре. И вдруг ей предлагают замечательную роль, да и с личной жизнью все вроде бы налаживается. Правда, пришлось соврать, что она профессиональная акробатка. Ну не признаваться же, что она указала в своем резюме акробатику для красного словца. Ведь спектакль ставит сам великий Бергман. И героиня начинает тренироваться, не жалея сил и времени...
Озик Синтия Путермессер и московская родственница
В Америке имя Синтии Озик известно не меньше, чем имена Филипа Рота или Исаака Башевиса Зингера, однако в России она печатается впервые. В сборник "Путермессер и московская родственница" вошли рассказы разных лет, в которых представлена широкая панорама жизни американского еврейства. Это интеллектуальная и вместе с тем страстная проза, в которой лирика и сарказм неотделимы друг от друга.
Пастернак Борис Леонидович Собрание сочинений в 2-х томах (комплект)
Настоящее двухтомное юбилейное собрание сочинений Бориса Пастернака посвящено 120-летию со дня рождения поэта. Музыка, живопись и философия - те три стихии, которые сформировали творческое мировоззрение Б. Пастернака. Живопись и музыка сопутствовали ему с детства. Успешные занятия музыкой и философией открывали для него двойную перспективу. Но им обеим он предпочел Поэзию. От ошеломляющей избыточной метафоричности стихотворений 1910-1920-х годов он приходит к не менее ошеломляющей и органичной свободе самовыражения книг "Второе рождение" и "На ранних поездах", достигнув затем в "Стихотворениях Юрия Живаго" и книге "Когда разгуляется" того провидческого состояния, когда "язык, родина и вместилище красоты и смысла, сам начинает думать и говорить за человека…" В 1958 году Б. Пастернак был удостоен Нобелевской премии "за значительные достижения в современной лирической поэзии, а также за продолжение традиций великого русского эпического романа". В первый том двухтомного Собрания сочинений включен основной свод стихотворений и поэм Б. Пастернака. Книгу предваряет статья И. Н. Сухих "Жизнь Поэта: правда и поэзия", а завершают комментарии Е. В. Пастернак и Е. Б. Пастернака. Во второй том включены статьи "Живаго жизнь: стихи и стихии" и ""Доктор Живаго": пятьдесят восьмой и другие годы" И. Н. Сухих, а также комментарии к роману Е. В. Пастернак и Е. Б. Пастернака.

Маккарти Кормак Дорога
Кормак Маккарти - современный американский классик главного калибра, хорошо известный нашему читателю романом "Старикам тут не место" (фильм братьев Коэн по этой книге получил четыре "Оскара"). Его роман "Дорога" в 2007 году получил Пулитцеровскую премию и вот уже более трех лет остается в списках бестселлеров и не сходит с прилавков книжных магазинов. Роман "Дорога" производит неизгладимое впечатление. В какой-то степени это эмоциональный шок! Сюжет прост. После катастрофы Отец и Сын идут через выжженные земли, пересекая континент. Всю книгу пронизывают глубокие, ранящие в самое сердце вопросы. Есть ли смысл жить, если будущего - нет? Вообще нет. Есть ли смысл жить ради детей? Это роман о том, что все в жизни относительно, что такие понятия, как добро и зло, в определенных условиях перестают работать и теряют смысл. Это роман о том, что действительно важно в жизни, и о том, как это ценить. И это также роман о смерти, о том, что все когда-нибудь кончается, и поэтому нужно каждый день принимать таким, какой есть. Нужно просто... жить.
Гиллиам Терри Интервью: Беседы с И. Кристи
Терри Гиллиам - бескомпромиссный иконоборец современного кинематографа, каждым своим фильмом разрушающий мифы о том, что можно и чего нельзя в массовом кино. К нему в полной мере применимо определение, данное Станиславом Лемом Филипу Дику: "визионер среди шарлатанов" (и неслучайно множество нереализованных проектов Гиллиама включает экранизации произведений Дика). Его анимационные вставки придали неповторимую цельность знаменитому телесериалу комик-группы "Монти Пайтон", у него сыграли свои лучшие роли Джонни Депп ("Страх и ненависть в Лас-Вегасе"), Брэд Питт с Брюсом Уиллисом ("Двенадцать обезьян") и Джефф Бриджес ("Король-рыбак", "Страна приливов"), а его блокбастеры "Бразилия" и "Приключения Барона Мюнхгаузена" прославились эпическим размахом не только постановочных эффектов, но и последующих баталий со студийным начальством. Именно его Джоан Роулинг видела постановщиком фильмов о Гарри Поттере, именно ему Слава Полунин доверил сценографию своей недавней программы "Дьябло". В цикле бесед, предлагаемом вашему вниманию, Гиллиам рассказывает о том, как "пайтоны" искали Священный Грааль и смысл жизни, как "Бандиты времени" путешествовали от Наполеона к Агамемнону, как череда стихийных бедствий помешала Джонни Деппу стать "Человеком, который убил Дон Кихота", как роль Хита Леджера, уже игравшего у Гиллиама в "Братьях Гримм" и умершего на съемках "Воображариума доктора Парнаса", доиграли Джонни Депп, Колин Фаррелл и Джуд Лоу и тем спасли постановку.

Перро Шарль Золушка
Давным-давно в одном королевстве случилась волшебная история. История настолько удивительная и прекрасная, что о ней стали говорить сначала во всём дворце, потом во всём королевстве. Её любили слушать все маленькие девочки, потому что им хотелось быть похожими на главную героиню - Золушку. Мальчики же представляли себя принцами, которые встретили свою Золушку на балу. История не забывалась, и много лет спустя её записал известный сказочник Шарль Перро. Благодаря ему мы во всех подробностях знаем о том, как встретились Золушка со своим возлюбленным во времена, когда принцы и принцессы танцевали на балах, а маленьким девочкам в крёстные доставались настоящие феи. Теперь сказку Шарля Перро знают во всём мире, Золушка стала героиней множества мультфильмов, опер, балетов и театральных постановок. Почему? Вам надо прочитать эту сказку, и вы всё поймёте сами!

Юрье Женевьева Ура, летим!
Тех читателей, кто еще незнаком с замечательным кроличьим семейством, ждет немало сюрпризов. А тем, кто уже не в первый раз берет в руки книгу о приключениях наших героев, предстоит вновь пережить много волнующих и веселых минут вместе с непоседами крольчатами, их почтенным кроликом-папой и тетушкой-крольчихой. Сначала вы узнаете о том, как отважные крольчата поднялись в небо на воздушном шаре и стали настоящими воздухоплавателями… А вот они уже на горе, спускаются по заснеженному склону на санках, которые везет добродушный пес Ворчун… И наконец, крольчата расследуют загадочное исчезновение кубка тетушки Циннии…
Юрье Женевьева Веселый карнавал
Что, по-вашему, должен делать счастливый отец пяти крольчат, с которыми постоянно случаются какие-нибудь истории? Спросите у папы Онестуса. Его милые, но очень шустрые дети ни минутки не сидят спокойно. Сначала вы встретитесь с Горицветиком, который убедил братьев и сестру, что им под силу втайне от взрослых покрасить стены в новом доме. И покрасили, но потом… Новый дом. Затем узнаете о том, как братья-кролики уговорили свою сестру Пируэтту пожарить пончики - ведь она видела, как это делает тетушка Цинния, - и чуть не спалили новую кухню… Сгоревшие пончики. Вместе с крольчатами вы сделаете карнавальные костюмы и отправитесь на праздник в город Камыш-на-Воде. Но и там вас будет ждать незабываемое приключение - на этот раз в маске клоуна… Веселый карнавал. Детям до 3-х лет.

Дюма Александр (сын) Дама с камелиями
- Дама с камелиями" - роман, а затем и пьеса, которая доказала независимость Александра Дюма-сына (1824-1895) от его плодовитого и экспансивного отца. Отпрыск автора исторических романов-фельетонов писал о проблемах, на открытое обсуждение которых в середине XIX столетия решался отнюдь не всякий. История Маргариты Готье, вдохновленная любовью автора к куртизанке Мари Дюплесси, по сей день является образцом психологической литературы несравненной глубины. "Держит ли он в руке резец, перо или кисть, художник действительно заслуживает этого имени лишь тогда, когда вселяет душу в материальные предметы или сообщает форму душевным порывам".

Лазарев Юрий Летопись Древней Руси: Что скрыто между строк?
Юрий Лазарев рассматривает летописные своды "Повести временных лет" как ключ к многочисленным загадкам истории Древней Руси. Существует ли более древняя история нашей страны, чем мы знаем по учебникам? Откуда пришли и кто такие славяне? Был ли "призванный на Русь" Рюрик скандинавом? Как на самом деле произошло крещение Руси? Автор книги ищет ответы на эти вопросы в летописи и обнаруживает много интересных фактов в ее строках. По доступности и увлекательности текст напоминает труды Л. Гумилева, а большое количество оригинальных авторских иллюстраций дает возможность совершить путешествие во времени и увидеть своих предков воочию. Книга будет интересна как ученикам старших классов и студентам, так и широкому кругу читателей, которым небезразлична история России.

Зощенко Михаил Михайлович Избранное
Зощенко сравнивают с Гоголем и Достоевским. Сюжеты своих рассказов он видел везде, где бы ни оказался. Зощенко смотрел на мир, как смотрит на него ребенок, - чистым и любопытным взглядом. В его книгах столько веселого и доброго, они написаны так просто и бодро, что для его современников они являлись поддержкой. Он прошел через много трудностей, но всегда умел смотреть на все с улыбкой и своим творчеством хотел научить этому других. Такая литература действует как бальзам на раны души и пробуждает ее из самозабвенности, позволяя выйти всему наболевшему и освобождая разум.
Баркер Клайв Галили
Они - боги, но не святые. Они живут на этой земле, среди нас, практически вечно, однако им свойственны все наши грехи, все наши муки. Они точно так же ведут войны - очень жестокие и кровопролитные... Известный культовый режиссер Квентин Тарантино очень точно охарактеризовал творчество Клайва Баркера: "Назвать Баркера писателем, работающим в жанре "хоррор", все равно что сказать: "Да, была неплохая группа "Битлз", даже записала парочку популярных песенок". Клайв Баркер видит иной мир и рассказывает о нем читателю, он работает на стыке многих жанров, и каждый его роман - это новое откровение, рассказывающее нам о жизни, которую мы не видим, но которая, несомненно, существует.
Колычев Владимир Григорьевич Невеста мафии
Когда сыщики влюбляются - преступникам становится некомфортно вдвойне. Буря чувств и океан страстей сметают на своем пути любые злодейские преграды, уловки и козни! Один минус: любовная нега затуманивает взгляд, и даже опытный опер порой не замечает очевидного... Так и капитан милиции Петрович, лежа в больнице с простреленной ногой, начал приударять за медсестрой Лидочкой. И думал он о чем угодно, но только не о последствиях этого флирта. И вдруг Лидочка бесследно исчезает. Похоже на то, что ее похитили торговцы женской красотой, на счету которых несколько убийств в подпольном стриптиз-клубе. И вот Петрович, как говорится, рвет чеку. Теперь его не остановит ничто. На розыски любимой он готов отправиться к черту на кулички - на сибирские золотые прииски, в самое разбойничье гнездо, где шансов остаться в живых - почти никаких...

Остен Эмилия Бархатная маска
Графство Лестершир - одно из самых тихих и спокойных мест в средней Англии. Здесь туманные рассветы и восхитительные закаты, которыми так приятно любоваться из окна собственного дома. Здесь старые патриархальные устои и добропорядочное общество, ведущее размеренный образ жизни. Лаис, молодая вдова, привыкла к его распорядку. После смерти мужа все ее заботы сводятся к воспитанию детей и управлению небольшим поместьем. Но вот на пороге ее дома появляется молчаливый незнакомец, закутанный в черный плащ, - претендент на должность учителя фехтования для ее сына. Он и вправду мастерски владеет шпагой и, к удивлению Лаис, слишком образован для простого учителя. Возможно, этот образ - лишь маска. Молодой женщине ужасно любопытно, кто же в действительности скрывается под ней.

Яковлев В. Ф., Яковлев А. А. Свеча целительница
Книга посвящена одной из жемчужин знахарского наследия - искусству лечения болезней с помощью горящей свечи. Таинственные взмахи знахаря свечой непосвящённому кажутся либо чудом, либо шарлатанством. На самом же деле движения руки со свечой подчинены строгим законам ориентации вокруг тела человека особых магистралей, соединяющих различные участки тела между собой. Горящая свеча - один из наилучших инструментов для обнаружения внетелесных энергетических магистралей и восстановления их функции при болезненных состояниях. В книге рассмотрены фундаментальные принципы использования свечи в качестве лечебного инструмента. Подробное описание технических приёмов даёт возможность освоить их и применять при коррекции разнообразных болезненных состояний. Грамотное применение чудесных свойств горящей свечи в дополнение к классическим медицинским способам лечения позволяет существенно ускорить темп выздоровления. Книга адресована широкому кругу читателей.

Гюго Виктор Собор Парижской Богоматери
"Собор Парижской Богоматери" - величайший исторический роман. Книга, в которой увлекательный, причудливый сюжет - всего лишь прекрасное обрамление для поразительных, потрясающих воображение авторских экскурсов в прошлое Парижа.

Сартр Жан-Поль Слова
В детстве Сартр насочинял себе немало ролей, одна из которых - писатель. В автобиографической повести "Слова" он вспоминает, что в библиотеке его "забавляли дамы, скользившие от полки к полке в тщетных поисках автора, который насытил бы их голод; они и не могли его найти, ведь им был я - мальчик, путавшийся у них под ногами, а они не смотрели в мою сторону". Как ни странно, но эта выдумка оказалась пророческой.

Большая книга Камасутра
Один из известных переводов знаменитой "Камасутры" - трактата индийского философа М. Ватсьяяны. Веками люди размышляли о том о том, как любить, не утрачивая свежести чувств, как получать удовольствие от любовной игры, о красоте отношений между мужчиной и женщиной. Кроме этого, в книге вы найдете главу, посвященную индийским традиционным отношениям полов, в которой отражены специфика, деликатность и тонкость сексуальной жизни людей Востока, а также главу, посвященную миру китайской эротики, весьма экзотичной для читателя-европейца и являющейся своего рода введением в курс китайского "альковного искусства" - искусства любви, основанного на многовековых традициях национальной культуры.

Самые знаменитые парусные суда. История парусников с древности до наших дней
Всем ясно, что именно парусники - повелители морских просторов, ведь в них сочетаются великолепие, благородство и авантюрный дух, ведь они пересекают моря и океаны, борются с грозными и изменчивыми ветрами. Четыре столетия длился золотой век парусников, отмеченный героическими событиями, великими трагедиями, романтическими приключениями и коммерческими удачами. Во славу парусного дела трудились мастера-корабелы, столяры, плотники, мореплаватели, однако истинными героями являлись сами парусники, в великом многообразии форм, продиктованном маневренностью, прочностью, быстроходностью и дерзновенным стремлением к прекрасному. В этой книге рассказывается история развития парусного судостроения от античных времен до наших дней. Детальное описание самых знаменитых парусников, некоторые из которых и сегодня продолжают бороздить моря и океаны, сопровождается великолепным иллюстративным материалом. Парусное судно - ярчайший пример единства технических, функциональных и эстетических возможностей человека. Самые знаменитые парусные суда - историческое исследование и впечатляющий каталог наиболее известных и красивых кораблей - вносит свою лепту в прославление человеческого гения.
