Алексеев Сергей Трофимович Чудские копи
Молодой, удачливый олигарх Глеб Балщук не верил, что жизни всегда есть место чуду. Однако ему пришлось изменить свое мнение, когда в окрестностях его родного шахтерского городка появились новгородские ушкуйники в кольчужных доспехах XV века. А вскоре начали оживать и древние поверья о таинственном народе рудознатцев, которые испокон века скрывались под землей. И по сей день они владеют всеми ее богатствами. И оказалось что все, к чему стремился Глеб, все его нажитые относительно честным и нечестным путем капиталы ничто в сравнении с древними правдами, которые открылись ему благодаря встрече прекрасной чудской девой Айдорой. Вопрос в том, нужны ли ему эти правды?

Юля - ангел... Но имеет ли она право им быть? Ведь двое, любивших ее, - вампир и юный потомок великого Гауди, погибли из-за этой любви.

Корнев Павел Николаевич Проклятый металл
Бесы из века в век рвутся в души людей из серой бездны, в которой никогда ничего не происходило и никогда ничего происходить не будет… Экзорцисты и экзекуторы молитвами и огнем спасают души бесноватых и изгоняют нечистых обратно в породившую их пустоту… Так было с самого сотворения мира и так должно было быть до конца его дней. Но появился человек, способный повелевать бесами, будто собственными вассалами. И разнеслась подобно чуме по городам новая ересь. И встали одержимые под знамена монарха-вероотступника. И оказались забыты старые договоры и обеты, а в воздухе запахло большой войной. Войной, в которой яд и кинжалы будут значить ничуть не меньше, чем армии и крепостные стены. Войной всех против всех. Какое, спросите вы, к этому имеет отношение Себастьян Март? Не стоило ему браться за изгнание бесов, только и всего.

Баженов Виктор Олегович, Шелонин Олег Александрович Паладин: Изгнанник; Странствующий рыцарь; Благословение (трилогия)
Что может ждать тебя впереди, если ты выпускник рыцарского ордена? Да ничего такого, о чем тысячи раз уже не пели в своих балладах менестрели: турниры, битвы, балы, подвиги во имя Прекрасной Дамы или в честь обета, данного Всевышнему. Вроде бы вот оно счастье рыцарское! Однако человек предполагает, а кто-то там, на небесах, располагает, и в один прекрасный момент ты с треском вылетаешь из ордена, в спутники к тебе набивается бес, сбежавший из ада с целью за твой счет сделать карьеру, а в оруженосцах оказывается недалекий тролль. И уж будьте уверены: такая развеселая компания приключения рыцарю Кевину обеспечит! И с уголовниками сведет, и с сильными мира сего поссорит, и с целым легионом тьмы на бой выйти заставит.
Сапожников Борис Наука побеждать. Авантюра
Этот мир очень похож на наш, несмотря на то что небеса его бороздят громадные дирижабли, перевозящие целые армии. Здесь британские войска по ошибке высаживаются на севере Российской империи, провоцируя войну. Наполеон Бонапарт спешит заключить против Британии наступательный союз с Россией. Главному герою романа, поручику Полоцкого пехотного полка, придется пройти через множество приключений. Судьба забросит его и в небеса над мысом Трафальгар, и на раскаленные равнины Испании, и даже в Париж. Однако он с честью выходит из всех "огней и вод", возвращаясь на родную землю.
Мартьянов Андрей Посредник
Мы ищем не сокровища, а знания. Не золото, а ценнейшие документы прошлых эпох. Не драгоценности и сундуки с деньгами, а уникальную информацию. Вот цель медиаторов, профессионально работающих в исторической реальности минувших веков. Тщательно разработанный план дает сбой и события начинают развиваться непредсказуемо. Кто кого переиграет - жители средневековья или современный человек? Вторая книга цикла А. Мартьянова "Наследник" позволит читателю проникнуть в самые оберегаемые тайны двора короля Франции и узнать, куда ведут "червоточины" - Двери, позволяющие наблюдать за событиями отдаленного прошлого. Это огромный риск. Эта профессия сопряжена с жертвами. Однако чего не сделаешь ради великой цели? История неизменяема, но сценарий событий можно изменить. И это в твоих руках. Действуй!

Стил Даниэла Колесо судьбы
Жизнь умной, талантливой, красивой женщины Таны Робертс не была усыпана розами, она всего добилась сама. Друзья, интересная работа, внимание мужчин... Она полагала, что ей этого вполне достаточно.

Панов Вадим Юрьевич Ручной Привод
Он существует с незапамятных времен, а может, и дольше. О нем знает вся Вселенная, но видели его единицы. Он редко включается, но с его работой всякий раз связана судьба человеческой души - "искры". Никто не знает, почему он называется Ручным Приводом. Но именно здесь, посреди ничего не подозревающей Москвы, определяется ход вечной борьбы двух Царств за "искры". Только отсюда можно выйти на связь с тем, кто порождает человеческие души. И именно сюда Царства присылают своих комендантов, попеременно управляющих Ручным Приводом. Но, даже получив Силу и Вечность, человек не способен отречься от своего прошлого, а потому и на Земле, и во Вселенной кипят страсти, совершаются благородные и подлые деяния - и за всем этим следит Ручной Привод. А за ним присматривают коменданты, в обязанности которых входит еще и наказание тех, кто возомнил себя равным Богу…
Вийон Франсуа Король поэтов голоштанных
"Глухой меня услышит и поймет". Гений, создавший матрицы для перевода своих баллад на века вперед, и антиобщественный элемент, живший почти по известному принципу: украл - выпил - в тюрьму; блатарь, чихавший на законы, и поэт, тщательно рихтующий каждую строчку; циник и романтик в одном флаконе. И это всё о нем, о Франсуа Вийоне. Впервые под одной обложкой встретились тоже два - лучших на сей день - переложения "Малого" и "Большого Завещания" Вийона, выполненных в конце прошлого века Ю. Корнеевым и Ю. Кожевниковым. У вдумчивого читателя есть возможность получить стереоскопический эффект от текстов самого необыкновенного поэта на свете.
Друнина Юлия Владимировна Стихи о войне
Сквозь грохот орудий дорогами Великой Отечественной войны шла муза Юлии Друниной - женственной и мужественной, верной солдатскому братству. Поэт-фронтовик, поэт-лирик, она любима все новыми и новыми читателями. Страницы этой книги возвращают в далекие "сороковые-роковые", в героические, полные лишений и страданий, но, вопреки всему, романтичные годы вчерашней школьницы, санинструктора Юлии Друниной.
Твардовский Александр Трифонович Стихи о войне
"Какая свобода, какая чудесная удаль, какая меткость, точность во всем и какой необыкновенный народный солдатский язык -- ни сучка, ни задоринки, ни единого фальшивого, готового, то есть литературно-пошлого слова!" - так писал И.А. Бунин о поэме Александра Твардовского "Василий Теркин". Эта поэма, одна из вершин творчества Твардовского, давно уже вошла в классический ряд русской литературы. Удивительно, что о самой жестокой войне можно было написать с такой жизнеутверждающей силой. В этот сборник вошли наиболее известные стихотворения и поэмы А.Т. Твардовского.
Симонов Константин Михайлович Стихи о войне
"От Москвы до Бреста Нет такого места, Где бы ни скитались мы в пыли..." Эти слова о военных корреспондентах в полной мере относятся и к их автору. "Военная тема", ставшая жизнью и судьбой Константина Симонова, вошла в его лирику не грохотом артиллерии, а пронзительной мелодией, мужественной и нежной. Его стихи о любви и верности, о доблести и трусости, о дружбе и предательстве - солдаты передавали друг другу, переписывали. Они помогали выжить. "...Как я выжил, будем знать Только мы с тобой..."
Варгас Льоса Марио Война конца света
Роман Марио Варгаса Льосы "Война конца света" - захватывающая хроника гражданской войны в Бразилии. В конце XIX века на северовостоке страны вспыхнул крестьянский бунт, который возглавил бродячий проповедник по прозвищу Консельейро (Наставник). Последователи считали его новым Христом, себя именовали апостолами. Поначалу члены общины и не думали воевать. Они поселились в заброшенной деревне Канудос, чтобы спасать душу в преддверии конца света, и составляли новое Евангелие. Власти, однако, рассматривали Канудос как орудие в руках враждебных Республике сил, очаг антиправительственного заговора, и трижды направляли карательные экспедиции против безоружных крестьян. Тем не менее война конца света длилась не один год. Переводчик: Богдановский А.
Идиатуллин Шамиль СССР™
"СССР™" - необычная для сегодняшних дней книга. Это история о том, как в самом глухом углу России возникла свободная экономическая зона, где выращиваются технологии будущего для всей страны, - очень дорогая смесь Академгородка с Магниткой, ДнепроГЭСом и Силиконовой долиной - совершенно реальный "национальный проект", получивший название "СССР". Вы скажете - это фантастика? Нет! Это роман о тех, кто поверил в мечту и построил счастливое будущее уже сегодня. О молодых и умных людях, которым было интересно жить. Но власть боится тех, кто свободен и уверен в себе. Проект решили закрыть. И тогда выяснилось, что счастье, построенное собственными руками, не так-то просто отобрать. Что даже могущественная корпорация, выполняющая приказы Кремля, может выйти из повиновения. И что строители "СССР" готовы за него воевать.

Чехов Антон Павлович Полное собрание повестей, рассказов и юморесок (DVDpc)
Диск содержит все повести, рассказы и юморески великого русского писателя Антона Павловича Чехова (1860-1904). Посвящается 150-летнему юбилею писателя. Антон Павлович Чехов - один из самых выдающихся современных европейских писателей. Семья Чеховых дала нескольких писателей и художников. Антон Павлович Чехов родился 17 января 1860 года в Таганроге, там же окончил курс гимназии, затем поступил на медицинский факультет московского университета и в 1884 году получил степень врача, но практикой почти не занимался. С 1879, еще студентом, под псевдонимом Антоша Чехонте, начал помещать мелкие рассказы в юмористических изданиях "Стрекоза", "Будильник", "Осколки" и др., затем перешел в "Петербургскую Газету" и "Новое Время". В 1886 году вышел первый сборник его рассказов; в 1887 году появился второй сборник - "В сумерках", который показал, что в лице Чехова русская литература приобрела новое, вдумчивое и тонко-художественное дарование. Постепенно успех Чехова возрастал: особенное внимание обратили на себя "Степь", "Скучная История", "Дуэль", "Палата № 6", "Рассказ неизвестного человека", "Мужики" (1897), "Человек в футляре", "В овраге"; из пьес - "Иванов", "Чайка", "Дядя Ваня", "Три сестры". В 1890 году Чехов совершил поездку на Сахалин. Вынесенные из этой поездки мрачные впечатления составили предмет целой книги: "Остров Сахалин" (1895). Позднее Чехов много путешествовал по Европе. В 1898 после смерти отца, а также в связи с ухудшением здоровья Чехов перебрался из Мелихова в Ялту, где построил дом. Здесь он встречался с Л. Н. Толстым, М. Горьким, И. А. Буниным, А. И. Куприным, И. И. Левитаном. В 1900 году Чехов был избран почетным академиком пушкинского отделения РАН. В 1901 писатель женился на актрисе МХАТа О. Л. Книппер. 15 июля 1904 года, в курортном городе Баденвейлере, Чехов умер от туберкулеза. Содержание: Рассказы: В вагоне. Встреча весны (рассуждение). Грешник из Толедо.

Mailer Norman GOLD Moonfire. The Epic Journey of Apollo 11
"And the Moon came nearer..." A unique tribute to the defining scientific mission of our time "MoonFire is the greatest book I have ever seen. The photography is unparalleled... It is more than just a book, it is an experience." - David Schonauer, American Photo It has been called the single most historic event of the 20th century: On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins met John F. Kennedy's call for a manned Moon landing by the end of the 1960s. A decade of tests and training, a staff of 400,000 engineers and scientists, a budget of $24 billion, and the most powerful rocket ever launched all combined in an unprecedented event watched by millions the world over. And no one captured the men, the mood, and the machinery like Norman Mailer. One of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, Norman Mailer was hired by LIFE in 1969 to cover the Moon shot. His three-part feature was the longest nonfiction piece LIFE had published. He enhanced and extended his reportage with deeper reflection in the brilliantly crafted book, Of a Fire on the Moon, excerpted here for the first time. Equally adept at examining the science of space travel and the psychology of the men involved-from Saturn V rocket engineer Wernher von Braun, to the crucial NASA support staff, to the three astronauts-Mailer provides provocative and trenchant insights into this epoch-making event. Illustrating this volume are hundreds of the best photographs and maps from the NASA vaults, magazine archives, and private collections. Many of them previously unpublished, these images document the development of the agency and the mission, life inside the command module and on the Moon's surface, and the world's jubilant reaction to the landing. This edition includes an original introduction by Colum McCann and captions by leading Apollo 11 experts, explaining the history and science behind the images, citing the mission log and publications of the day, and post-flight astronaut interviews. The book you couldn't get your hands on is finally available as the first publication in TASCHEN's new series of GOLDEN BOOKS, created to celebrate the company's 30th anniversary! Originally published as a TASCHEN Limited Edition, Norman Mailer's MoonFire sold out instantly and earned accolades from publications the world over. About the author: Norman Mailer was one of the 20th century's greatest and most influential writers, as well as one of America's most renowned and controversial literary figures. The best-selling author of a dozen novels and 20 works of nonfiction, he also wrote stage plays, screenplays, television miniseries, hundreds of essays, two books of poetry, and a collection of short stories. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, he lived in Brooklyn, New York and Provincetown, Massachusetts. About the contributing author: Colum McCann is the author of seven books, including Let the Great World Spin. He has written for The New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, GQ, The Times (London), The Irish Times, and La Republica.

He enhanced and extended his reportage with deeper reflection in the brilliantly crafted book, Of a Fire on the Moon, excerpted here for the first time. Equally adept at examining the science of space travel and the psychology of the men involved-from Saturn V rocket engineer Wernher von Braun, to the crucial NASA support staff, to the three astronauts-Mailer provides provocative and trenchant insights into this epoch-making event. Illustrating this volume are hundreds of the best photographs and maps from the NASA vaults, magazine archives, and private collections. Many of them previously unpublished, these images document the development of the agency and the mission, life inside the command module and on the Moon's surface, and the world's jubilant reaction to the landing. This edition includes an original introduction by Colum McCann and captions by leading Apollo 11 experts, explaining the history and science behind the images, citing the mission log and publications of the day, and post-flight astronaut interviews. The book you couldn't get your hands on is finally available as the first publication in TASCHEN's new series of GOLDEN BOOKS, created to celebrate the company's 30th anniversary! Originally published as a TASCHEN Limited Edition, Norman Mailer's MoonFire sold out instantly and earned accolades from publications the world over. About the author: Norman Mailer was one of the 20th century's greatest and most influential writers, as well as one of America's most renowned and controversial literary figures. The best-selling author of a dozen novels and 20 works of nonfiction, he also wrote stage plays, screenplays, television miniseries, hundreds of essays, two books of poetry, and a collection of short stories. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, he lived in Brooklyn, New York and Provincetown, Massachusetts. About the contributing author: Colum McCann is the author of seven books, including Let the Great World Spin. He has written for The New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, GQ, The Times (London), The Irish Times, and La Republica.
Bosing Walter Hieronymus Bosch c. 1450-1516. Between Heaven and Hell
The pictorial world of Hieronymus Bosch If Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516) remains an enigma today, it is little wonder. Even his contemporaries found the Dutch painter's work difficult to decipher—and it still presents riddles to contemporary art historians. Part of the problem in decoding his shocking and richly allegorical paintings is that virtually nothing is known of the artist himself, apart from his birthplace. There is no record of his life or training, no personal letters, diaries or notebooks, and no contemporary insights into his personality or thoughts on the meaning of his art. Even his date of birth can only be guessed at, and that based on a drawing assumed to be a self-portrait, made shortly before his death in 1516, which supposedly shows the artist in his late sixties. Bosch remains as mysterious as the worlds he painted. Although rooted in the Old Dutch tradition, Bosch developed a highly subjective, richly suggestive formal language. With a mixture of religious humility and satanic wit, he illustrated both the joys of heaven and the cruelly imaginative tortures of hell. In his pictorial world teeming with surrealistic nightmares, the medieval imagination catches fire in a moment of final brilliance before succumbing to humanism and modern rationalism. Though the man himself remains a mystery, this book pulls together the elusive threads of Bosch's entire oeuvre into a cohesive and comprehensive analysis of his visionary work and methods.

Wolf Norbert Durer 1471-1525. The genius of the German Renaissance
Germany's greatest Renaissance artist. Though most famous for his engravings, Albrecht Durer (1471-1528) was also a master painter and draftsman whose work exemplifies the spirit of German art. Durer's importance in the German High Renaissance was such that he can be considered to embody the movement entirely. His visits to Italy (where he studied most notably with Giovanni Bellini) had a profound effect on his artistic development and enabled him to combine both German and Italian influences in his work. In his later life, Durer's passion for knowledge and progress led him to research and write on the subjects of art theory and mathematics, making him not only the greatest Northern European artist of his time, but also one of its leading thinkers. This overview of Durer's entire oeuvre—covering his oil, tempera, and watercolor paintings, copper and wood engravings, and his drawings and sketches—is the perfect introduction to his work.

Zollner Frank Leonardo
Leonardo: from art and anatomy to helicopters and submarines One of the most accomplished human beings who ever lived, Leonardo remains the quintessential Renaissance genius. Creator of the world's most famous painting, this scientist, artist, philosopher, inventor, builder, and mechanic epitomized the great flowering of human consciousness that marks his era. And yet, so wide-ranging and prolific were his interests that he brought hardly any major undertaking to a final end. If Leonardo seems so modern, it is perhaps because of his non-speciality, his magpie mind and curiosity, and his thousands of notes and sketches. In these pages he would anticipate some of the great discoveries and inventions that would follow him, from key points in anatomy-such as the principles behind blood circulation-through to plans for armoured military vehicles, planes, helicopters and submarines. Leonardo also advanced numerous artistic techniques, and implicated a complex psychology into his paintings of The Last Supper and the enigmatic La Gioconda, or Mona Lisa. Famous horseman, rival to Michelangelo, military engineer to the Borgias, he died in 1519 in a chateau given to him by Francis I, King of France. Not bad for the illegitimate son of a Florentine notary.

Neret Gilles Michelangelo 1475-1564. Universal Genius of the Renaissance
Michelangelo between earthly passions and fear of God During the Renaissance, several great homosexual artists-from Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli to Michelangelo and Raphael-transformed the history of art, striving for ever closer imitation of nature while shaping it to their tastes. In their art ambiguous beings were born, half man, half woman; female breasts were planted on male busts and a young man's gaze peeped out beneath the eyelids of a Madonna. From his earliest youth Michelangelo transformed personal torment into exquisite creativity-attempting to reconcile the apparently conflicting forces that inhabited him: his earthly passions and his fear of God. Hence the peerless monuments to beauty, celestial and infernal alike, that Michelangelo raised to the glory of God. His predecessors aspired to Heaven through faith alone; Michelangelo sought absolution through the contemplative exaltation of beauty-even on the ceiling of a papal chapel: the Sistine. This exposed him to a chorus of derision from prudish critics, who accused him of exhibiting paganism in a place of religion, and who clothed his immodest Titans in painted "breeches". It was Michelangelo's curse to remain a colossus outside and apart from his time. It is the birthright of the comet to inspire fear and awe in the spectator; but the spectacle of such glory can sear the tender eye.

Zimmerman Claire Mies van der Rohe 1886-1969. The Structure of Space
Less is more: finding perfection in purity Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969) was one of the founding fathers of modern architecture, and creator of the Barcelona Pavilion (1929), the Farnsworth House in Plano, Illinois (1945–1951) and the Seagram Building in New York (1954–1958). Famed for his motto "less is more," Mies sought a refined purity in architectural expression that was missing from the vocabulary of his Bauhaus peers. He aimed to build for those of modest income while also building economically and sustainably, both in technical and esthetic terms; the use of industrial materials such as steel and glass were the foundation of this approach. Though his stark forms and modern materials provoked some criticism, over the years many have tried—most unsuccessfully—to copy his original and elegant style. This book explores more than 20 of his projects between 1906 and 1967, from his early work around Berlin to his most important American buildings.

Bockemuhl Michael Turner
The innocence of the eye As a blind person might see the world if the gift of sight were suddenly returned-this is how we might describe the effect of William Turner's paintings on the observer. John Ruskin, Turner's uncompromising 19th-century defender, alluded to this idea when he spoke of an "innocence of the eye" which perceived the world's colours and forms before it could recognize their significance. But to develop such a style, William Turner (1775-1851) first had to overcome the legacy of late rococo academic teachings. He was simultaneously a romantic and a realist-and yet he transcended both styles. His landscapes, far in advance of their time, have been called forerunners of Impressionism, yet they also possess traits that influenced Expressionism, and many of his late compositions are undeniably surrealistic. Turner's art cannot be bound by such classifications, and remains an oddity to art history even today. His work arises from a unique relation to the nature that it depicts: through his brilliant sketches, he found a rigorously open kind of painting in which nature sets free the use of colour. And through the workings of the natural elements-especially atmospheric light-Turner confronted nature at the point where nature itself is an image. This book opens up Turner's paintings for the eye, demonstrating that he was not simply illustrating nature, but that his pictures speak directly to the eye as nature does itself-through a world of light and colour.

Schneider Norbert Vermeer
Vermeer's women, their duties and unspoken dreams The 35 paintings that have come down to us from the hand of Jan Vermeer (1632-1675) place him beside Rembrandt and Frans Hals as one of the great masters of the golden age of Dutch art. Little is known of Vermeer's early life and training, though we can be certain that he never knew great success or acclaim during his lifetime, and after his death-reputedly in part because of the stress of his debts-his work was almost completely forgotten for the best part of two centuries. And yet today he is acknowledged as an exquisitely talented and highly original artist. Most of his pictures (all of which are reproduced in this book) show middle-class women about their daily business. Vermeer records the tasks and duties of these women, the imperatives of virtue under which their lives were lived, while also evoking their dreams and their contrasting inner worlds.

Jodidio Philip Architecture Now! Museums
Star architects from Zaha Hadid to Herzog & de Meuron have shaken up the formerly staid world of museum architecture, bringing bravura to new buildings and extensions. But the trend for new museums to opt for bold contemporary architecture goes well beyond the stunning work of Renzo Piano or Tadao Ando. Many less well-known architects have also designed remarkable places to exhibit art and artifacts. Some have provoked controversy, like Mexican architect Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon's University Museum of Contemporary Art on the sprawling UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) campus. Others have been warmly welcomed, like the sweeping, light-filled Art Gallery of Ontario Extension by Toronto-born Frank O. Gehry, his first commission in his native city. Others point out new horizons for reclaiming brownfield sites and reviving derelict industrial structures: Nicholas Grimshaw's conversion of a disused 1960s blast furnace into Horno 3, a welcoming extra gallery space for the Mexican city of Monterrey's Museum of Steel is a case in point. In Cartagena, Spain, Rafael Moneo's decade-long work on the Museum of the Roman Theater culminated in a structure that engages visitors in an archaeological manner, taking them on a tour of history as well as the site itself. Here then are more than 50 projects by the major talents pushing the limits of contemporary museum design, from established masters to the latest generation of brilliant architects. About the author: Philip Jodidio studied art history and economics at Harvard, and edited Connaissance des Arts for over 20 years. His books include TASCHEN's Architecture Now! series, and monographs on Tadao Ando, Norman Foster, Richard Meier, Jean Nouvel, and Zaha Hadid. He is internationally renowned as one of the most popular writers on the subject of architecture. Литература на английском, французском и немецком языках.

Birshall Heather Pre-Raphaelites
"Genuine ideas to express" Sometimes considered the first avant-garde art movement, the Pre-Raphaelites rejected their era's dominant artistic theories for what they saw as a more spiritual, naturalistic and intensely personal approach. Fascinated by the romantic aspects of medieval culture and the vivid, jewel-like colors of Quattrocento art, the movement abhored the Classical poses and composition of Raphael and those influenced by him-hence the group's name-and the influence of Sir Joshua Reynolds. Founded in 1848 by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the original Pre-Raphaelites were joined by William Michael Rossetti, James Collinson, Frederic George Stephens and Thomas Woolner to form a seven-member "brotherhood". Its influence on many later British artists was extensive, and Rossetti's work is now seen as a precursor of the wider European Symbolist movement. This book examines the group's emergence, development, influence, and subsequent demise.

Margolies John Roadside America
The native genius of America's mid-era automobile culture Before the advent of corporate communications and architectural uniformity, America's built environment was a free-form landscape of individual expression. Signs, artifacts, and even buildings ranged from playful to eccentric, from deliciously cartoonish to quasipsychedelic. Photographer John Margolies spent over three decades and drove more than 100,000 miles documenting these fascinating and endearingly artisanal examples of roadside advertising and fantasy structures, a fast-fading aspect of Americana. This book brings together approximately 400 color photographs of Main Street signs, movie theaters, gas stations, fast food restaurants, motels, roadside attractions, miniature golf courses, dinosaurs, giant figures and animals, and fantasy coastal resorts. In an age when online shopping and mega-malls have reconfigured American consumerism, stripping away idiosyncracy in favor of a bland homogeneity, Margolies's elegiac 30-year survey reminds us of a more innocent unpredictable and colorful past. About the photographer: John Margolies is an author, photographer, and lecturer on American architecture and design. For 30 years he has explored America's highways in search of unique architecture. Author of a dozen books, his photographs and articles have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, Domus and Architectural Record. About the editor: Cultural anthropologist and graphic design historian Jim Heimann is Executive Editor for TASCHEN America, and author of numerous books on architecture, pop culture, and the history of the West Coast, Los Angeles, and Hollywood. His unrivaled private collection of ephemera has been featured in museum exhibitions around the world and dozens of books. About the author: Phil Patton writes about car design for The New York Times and is a contributing editor to ID magazine. He was a consultant for Curves of Steel: Streamlined Automobile Design at the Phoenix Art Museum, and Different Roads: Automobiles for the Next Century at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. About the contributing author: C. Ford Peatross is director of the Center for Architecture, Design and Engineering in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress. He is the author of Eero Saarinen: Buildings from the Balthazar Korab Archive (2008). Литература на английском, французском и немецком языках.

Rajesh Devraj, Duncan Paul Directors - Art of Bollywood
Mother India goes to the movies Hand-painted movie posters that made Bollywood a winner Since its inception in the second decade of the 20th century, the Bombay-based Indian film industry-Bollywood-has developed a unique visual language, articulated by the vivid hand-painted movie posters that have since become highly-desirable collectors' items. While Bollywood poster artists produced a staggering number of these hand-painted images, their ephemeral work has traditionally been presented unevenly, with shoddy reprints and re-release posters. The Art of Bollywood digs deeper into the tradition, presenting the original art in its true glory-from seldom-seen posters to rare images of street publicity and cinema displays. The text provides a detailed discussion of the works of key artists, in this comprehensive overview of a previously neglected and underrated artistic genre. About the editor: Paul Duncan has edited 50 film books for TASCHEN, including the award-winning The Ingmar Bergman Archives, and authored Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick in the Film Series. About the authors: Edo Bouman is a researcher and collector of Indian film posters and Indian film music, and runs the Amsterdam-based record label Bombay Connection, which specializes in South Asian film scores and soundtracks. Rajesh Devraj is a writer and filmmaker based in Mumbai, India. He has worked in advertising and television, and is the author of several screenplays.

Brooks Pfeiffer Bruce Frank Lloyd Wright 1917-1942
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is widely considered the greatest American architect of all time; his work ushered in the modern era and remains highly influential today-half a century after his death. TASCHEN's three-volume monograph covers all his designs (numbering approximately 1100), realized and unrealized. Made in collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in Taliesin, Arizona, this collection leaves no stone unturned in examining and paying tribute to Wright's astonishing life and work. Whereas the first volume covers the early Chicago years, this second volume deals with the work after World War I, beginning with the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and covering Wright's quest to design affordable houses with systematic construction methods and the Usonian concept house, with the forest-sited villa Fallingwater being the dramatic climax. The years spent working in Japan were followed by personal turmoil. In late 1922, Wright divorced from first wife Catherine, and the following year married Miriam Noel. Yet barely six months later she left, initiating a bitter divorce. Shortly after, Wright met his third wife, Olgivanna. During this difficult period a second fire at Taliesin strained his already parlous finances; the bank foreclosed, leaving him without home or studio. With nowhere to practice, he started writing magazine articles, and his autobiography (published in 1932 to great acclaim). From 1917 through the Depression, up until 1942, though he designed continually, Wright saw many projects go unrealized, but nevertheless had the chance to build on new concepts and in new regions. His block building system led to idiosyncratic works like the famous Ennis house in Los Angeles, and in 1936 he completed the Herbert Jacobs house, using his new "Usonian" techniques, designed to be affordable for the middle-American family. The same year he moved to Arizona where, at the age of 71, Wright embraced his rugged new life in the desert, and with his students started building the Taliesin West complex. After receiving a gold medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects in London, he returned to see his Johnson Administration Building opened to great fanfare, nationwide publicity, and lines around the block waiting to tour inside. Despite adversity, Wright emerged from this era with reputation restored and vitality renewed-as manifested in Fallingwater and the Johnson building-while his Usonian homes began to alter the way Americans lived. About the author: Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer became Frank Lloyd Wright's apprentice at the Taliesin Fellowship in 1949. In 1957, he attended the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris, returning in 1958 to continue his apprenticeship with Wright until his death in 1959. He remains at Taliesin to this day, as director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, a vice-president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and author of numerous publications on Wright's life and work. About the editor: Peter Gossel runs a practice for the design of museums and exhibitions. He is the editor of TASCHEN's monographs on Julius Shulman, R. M. Schindler, John Lautner and Richard Neutra, as well as the editor of the Basic Architecture Series. Издание на английском, французском и немецком языках.

Whereas the first volume covers the early Chicago years, this second volume deals with the work after World War I, beginning with the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and covering Wright's quest to design affordable houses with systematic construction methods and the Usonian concept house, with the forest-sited villa Fallingwater being the dramatic climax. The years spent working in Japan were followed by personal turmoil. In late 1922, Wright divorced from first wife Catherine, and the following year married Miriam Noel. Yet barely six months later she left, initiating a bitter divorce. Shortly after, Wright met his third wife, Olgivanna. During this difficult period a second fire at Taliesin strained his already parlous finances; the bank foreclosed, leaving him without home or studio. With nowhere to practice, he started writing magazine articles, and his autobiography (published in 1932 to great acclaim). From 1917 through the Depression, up until 1942, though he designed continually, Wright saw many projects go unrealized, but nevertheless had the chance to build on new concepts and in new regions. His block building system led to idiosyncratic works like the famous Ennis house in Los Angeles, and in 1936 he completed the Herbert Jacobs house, using his new "Usonian" techniques, designed to be affordable for the middle-American family. The same year he moved to Arizona where, at the age of 71, Wright embraced his rugged new life in the desert, and with his students started building the Taliesin West complex. After receiving a gold medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects in London, he returned to see his Johnson Administration Building opened to great fanfare, nationwide publicity, and lines around the block waiting to tour inside. Despite adversity, Wright emerged from this era with reputation restored and vitality renewed-as manifested in Fallingwater and the Johnson building-while his Usonian homes began to alter the way Americans lived. About the author: Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer became Frank Lloyd Wright's apprentice at the Taliesin Fellowship in 1949. In 1957, he attended the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris, returning in 1958 to continue his apprenticeship with Wright until his death in 1959. He remains at Taliesin to this day, as director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, a vice-president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and author of numerous publications on Wright's life and work. About the editor: Peter Gossel runs a practice for the design of museums and exhibitions. He is the editor of TASCHEN's monographs on Julius Shulman, R. M. Schindler, John Lautner and Richard Neutra, as well as the editor of the Basic Architecture Series. Издание на английском, французском и немецком языках.
