From early ornamental works produced by secretaries in the late 19th century to more recent works that consider the uniqueness of the typewritten document in the digital age, there is an astonishing and delightful range of creativity in every artwork. The publication features three main sections: an introduction to the history of the typewriter and its art; an expansive plate section showing key works, thematized and rendered in exquisite detail; and a reference section featuring biographies of the most influential artists and writers. Each book has a cover with a unique combination of front and back image, meaning no two books are the same. This is a once-in-a-generation publication, carefully curated through decades of first-hand experience to inspire a new wave of designers and artists for the future.

Facade Refurbishment Toolbox: Supporting the Design of Residential Energy Upgrades (B/W version) (A+BE | Architecture and the Built Environment)

The starting point of the research is the need to refurbish existing residential building stock, in order to reduce its energy demand, which accounts for over one fourth of the energy consumption in the European Union. Refurbishment is a necessary step to reach the ambitious energy and decarbonisation targets for 2020 and 2050 that require an eventual reduction up to 90% in CO2 emissions. In this context, the rate and depth of refurbishment need to grow. The number of building to be renovated every year should increase, while the energy savings in renovated buildings should be over 60% reduction to current energy demand. To achieve that, not only is it necessary to find politics and incentives, but also to enable the building industry to design and construct effective refurbishment strategies. This research focuses on refurbishment of the building envelope, as it is very influential with regard to energy reduction.

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure (Performance Philosophy)

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure combines the author's two main biographical paths: her professional commitment to the fi elds of both theater and philosophy. The art of acting on stage is analyzed here not only from the theoretical perspective of a spectator but also from the perspective of the actor. The author draws on her experience as both a theater actor and a university professor whose teachings in the art of acting rely heavily on her own experience and also on her philosophical knowledge. The book is unique not only in terms of its content but also in terms of its style. Written in a multiplicity of voices, the text oscillates between philosophical reasoning and narrative forms of writing, including micronarratives, fables, parables, and inter alia by Carroll, Hoff mann, and Kleist. Hence the book claims that a transdisciplinary dialogue between the art of acting and the art of philosophical thinking calls for an aesthetic study that questions and begins to seek alternatives to traditionally established and ingrained formats of philosophy.

The Winter's Tale

One of Shakespeare's most haunting and enigmatic late plays, The Winter's Tale is a fine example of Shakespeare's fascination with the dramatic genre of "romance"--the portrayal of magical lands, familial conflict and exile, and final reunion and reconciliation. Drawing on Robert Green's story Pandosto, Shakespeare's play tells the story of the middle-aged Leontes, King of Sicilia, and his childhood friend Polixenes, the King of Bohemia. Leontes mistakenly believes that his friend is having an affair with his wife, Hermione. In his jealousy, and consumed by "tremor cordis", he tries to murder Polixenes, who flees, and accuses his wife of adultery. Hermione gives birth to a baby girl, Perdita, who Leontes denounces as illegitimate, and casts her out into the wilderness. Hermione is ultimately proved innocent, but her son, Mamillius, dies of grief. Hermione collapses, apparently dead, and Leontes is left to pick up the tragic consequences of his actions. Time passes, and the action moves to Bohemia, where the lost child Perdita has grown up a shepherdess in the midst of "great creating nature". The final scenes of the play draw towards resolution and reconciliation between Leontes, Hermione and their lost daughter, culminating in one of Shakespeare's most moving final scenes. One of Shakespeare's most consummate plays, The Winter's Tale is a fascinating study of male insecurity and the relations between art and nature. --Jerry Brotton.

Critical Failures: Volume 1 (Caverns and Creatures)

Tim and his friends find out the hard way that you shouldn't question the game master, and you shouldn't make fun of his cape. One minute, they're drinking away the dreariness of their lives, escaping into a fantasy game and laughing their asses off. The next minute, they're in a horse-drawn cart surrounded by soldiers pointing crossbows at them. Tim now has the voice and physique of a prepubescent girl. Dave finds that while he lost a foot or two in height, he somehow acquired a suit of armor and a badass beard. Julian's ears have grown ridiculously long and pointy. And Cooper... well Cooper has gotten himself a set of tusks, a pair of clawed hands, and a bad case of the shits. He also finds that he's carrying a bag with a human head in it - a head that he had chopped off when they were still just playing a game. Shit just got real, and if they want to survive, these four friends are going to have to tap into some baser instincts they didn't even know existed in their fast-food and pizza delivery world. It's fight, flight, or try to convince the people who are trying to kill them that they don't really exist. Meanwhile, a sadistic game master sits back in the real world eating their fried chicken.

Migration in the Southern Balkans: From Ottoman Territory to Globalized Nation States (IMISCOE Research Series)

This volume collects ten essays that look at intra-regional migration in the Southern Balkans from the late Ottoman period to the present. It examines forced as well as voluntary migrations and places these movements within their historical context, including ethnic cleansing, population exchanges, and demographic engineering in the service of nation-building as well as more recent labor migration due to globalization. Inside, readers will find the work of international experts that cuts across national and disciplinary lines. This cross-cultural, comparative approach fully captures the complexity of this highly fractured, yet interconnected, region. Coverage explores the role of population exchanges in the process of nation-building and irredentist policies in interwar Bulgaria, the story of Thracian refugees and their organizations in Bulgaria, the changing waves of migration from the Balkans to Turkey, Albanian immigrants in Greece, and the diminished importance of ethnic migration after the 1990s. In addition, the collection looks at such under-researched aspects of migration as memory, gender, and religion. The field of migration studies in the Southern Balkans is still fragmented along national and disciplinary lines. Moreover, the study of forced and voluntary migrations is often separate with few interconnections. The essays collected in this book bring these different traditions together. This complete portrait will help readers gain deep insight and better understanding into the diverse migration flows and intercultural exchanges that have occurred in the Southern Balkans in the last two centuries.

Billionaire Baby Secret Book One: A Curvy, Secret Pregnancy Romance

His eyes tell me every last, dirty detail of what he'll to do to me.

It was supposed to just be karaoke for my birthday. But the way that sexy stranger at the bar is looking at me, I'm afraid I'll be singing twice tonight - first on stage. And then in his bedroom.

Maybe it's his gorgeous English accent. Or those sizzling eyes that undress me right here in the bar. Well, my good-for-nothing cheating boyfriend has just broken up with me, so I'm going to let the stranger buy me a drink.

Not that I'd be brave enough to actually follow through. I'm not the type of girl that just goes out and sleeps around. Even when those lips make me tremble. Even when all I want to do is rip that million dollar suit off his smoking hot body and take him right here in the bar.

He shouldn't be interested in a girl like me. Guys don't go for curvy and intelligent - or at least, that's what my ex-boyfriend kept telling me.

But that stranger - he keeps looking at me like like I'm the only one in the room. I don't know what to do - I mean, how long do you have to wait after you've broken up with somebody?

And what happens if my ex-boyfriend wants me back?

Warning: Billionaire Baby Secret Book 1 is a short, steamy romance so hot it will have you fanning yourself (and looking for your closest karaoke bar). It contains smoking hot action between a curvy BBW and a gorgeous Billionaire, and includes sizzling scenes which are for adults only.

This is the first book in the Billionaire Baby Secret Series by Nikki Steele, the mistress of billionaire romance sagas.

His witty put-downs, laser-beam glare and no-nonsense approach have won him legions of fans on the BBC's award-winning show The Apprentice. But how has the East End boy turned multi-millionaire - a man famously allergic to wafflers - coped for ten years in the arty-farty world of television? Of course he did it his way, as he reveals in the extracts featured in Unscripted Extras. He describes why he can never be scripted, remembers some of his famous putdowns in the boardroom and cringes at a lead balloon moment. He also explains to a baggy-jumpered beanie-hat-wearing young director that he will not be spending all day filming a five-minute trail and refuses to let Piers Morgan make him cry. Funny and outspoken, this special eBook short is Alan Sugar at his entertaining best.

FANTASTIC Book with Easy Step-by-Step Guide to Reading Music ... and MORE! June 6, 2014

The author did a TREMENDOUS job of explaining a SIMPLE way to read Music. The Step-by-Step method of instruction provides an excellent way to learn the important aspects of reading Music to be able to actually play the musical notes on the piano properly.

There are also four detailed Charts presented in a clear and concise manner. Additionally, I really appreciated the section of Definitions with over 100 Musical Terms that helped refresh my memory! The information in the Charts and the vocabulary of the language of Music in the Definitions is of great value.

An Active Table of Contents and clear professional Illustrations compliment this well written Kindle book. I look forward to reading additional books as this author is definitely an EXPERT on the subject.

As such, I wholeheartedly and Highly Recommend with a 5 STAR Rating!

"David Bookbinder is one of those awakened souls whose near-death experience gave him fresh and timeless eyes. He has taken that gift and poured it into Paths to Wholeness, using innovative photography and heartfelt reflection to surface and praise the mysteries of the inner world." - Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening

The Death of an Actress

Dana: it's like her whole life is still swirling around. She was my dear ex-wife. A beautiful portrait was propped on the wall besides the hospital table. Everybody has reasons to see her walking and talking again. Kind of she is still alive. Everybody is waiting to see her waking up from her seizure. The doctor talked to my daughter yesterday and told her that the seizure didn't wipe out any additional spots of her brain besides what the first stroke did already. It is encouraging. I look at her as she is lying on her back with her beautiful head propped up on the raised pillows: she looks relaxed though there are lots of tubes and wires connecting her to devices that trace her body's work. "She may be able to see you and hear you but her mind would not be able to interpret... People who had seizures could get back sometimes to full consciousness unaffected. Not though people that had a stroke on each side of their brain. They'd linger on bed for a while and cling to a thin string of air before passing away. They'd slowly get breathing difficulties. Some would begin coughing and die. The diaphragm would press their heart. There is nothing to do about that. If you wish you could go and talk to her. Some pleasant words... It would sooth you". The unhappiness I gave her comes back into my mind. No forgiveness. I sit on her death bed watching her heavily breathing. That's the way she could live forever, I think. Her face and her forehead are reddish and hot. I am determined to ask her to live one more day. Sometimes her breathe seems to be lost. I panic; I squeeze her hand and urge her to breath. We are attached to our breathing or our breathing is attached to us? I tell her not to be afraid. What do I know? Nobody would understand that seeing her breathing makes me feel happy. I massage her toes. When I touch her sole it looks like she opens her eyes. "What are you trying to do?" my daughter asks. I'm still trying to revive her.

A Bird in the Hand

This book is a brief look into the world of Terry Everitt as a Wildlife Artist - or Bird Carver as he'd rather be known. It describes the strong feelings he has about both the good and the bad of inheriting a talent and how it's affected his life over the last 40 years or so. It traces the path from his earlier years drawing and painting birds, then changing his tools and medium to reach where he is today as a carver.

Terry briefly covers the evolution he went through with variations in the design of his unique "Naturebox" before specialising in the product that he crafts nowadays. He includes a short, but nevertheless, easy to follow "work in progress" piece which details the process of carving birds from wood.

If you are an experienced wildlife wood carver already or have always hankered over picking up some sharp instruments, Terry's book will inspire you. It's a great hobby to have.

*******************************************

Tracy Heath once again brings the quirky Oregon desert and its people to you with her feel-good, laugh-out-loud tales. In this second book of her Country Misadventures series, Tracy recounts numerous stories full of humor and poignancy.

Experience the face-palm moments of becoming a dog owner:

"Considering his klutzy habits and ill-mannered behavior, [Bowser's] knowledge of the indoors was limited. But his understanding of life in general was lacking, so we should have seen something coming."

Relive the days of T-ball where the hardest part of the game is keeping the helmet out of your eyes:

"We had a few players that could hit the ball off the tee onto the field and then run toward first base. Sometimes they forgot to turn left after reaching first and just kept galloping into the outfield, but it was a start."

And get ready for hard-core fishing, folks, because fishing's not for wimps:

"Dripping piteously, the fishers reached the foot of the trail and took a minute to gaze up the steep, switchbacked path, the shadows already growing long around them. Crying seemed a viable option...."

Enjoy these escapades and several other comical stories in Tracy's take on country life. Bedoggled is available solely for your entertainment!

This may include hiring a freelance ghostwriter (if you choose not to write your book yourself), an experienced editor, and even a professional graphic designer for best results. It all depends on the type of book an indie author wishes to produce.

For example, there are different components involved with designing a paperback book than an ebook of any kind; and there are even more components to consider if that indie author wishes to publish and print a hardcover book. An Independent Author's Checklist includes an important list of questions indie authors will want to answer for a graphic designer, ahead of time, to ensure the book is completed properly and professionally the first time around. This type of preparation can save time and money for both project stakeholders because it can prevent complete do-overs in cases where the designer was unclear about the indie author's original vision.

Communication is so important throughout this process--not only with your graphic designer. An indie author will also want to have certain things prepared ahead of time, in certain ways, for both the ghostwriter (if applicable) and the editor. As such, it's often helpful to have a checklist at your disposal that makes this entire process run as smoothly as possible--particularly for the indie authors who are new to the whole publishing business. That's why I created An Independent Author's Checklist and decided to publish it online for indie authors everywhere. I want you all to have as much helpful information as possible at your fingertips, so you all have a positive publishing experience coupled with the best possible chances of success. That is my wish for you.

An Independent Author's Checklist includes helpful information for indie authors regarding effectively communicating your book's vision to a ghostwriter. Although some indie authors are both qualified and have the time to write their own books, you might choose to hire someone else to help you create that compelling narrative. Both are acceptable ways to produce a book. That said, when hiring a ghostwriter to help pen your book, it is important for indie authors to remember that ghostwriting is an ongoing, collaborative process (much like the entire publishing process). To make things run smoother, you should be prepared ahead of time.

An Independent Author's Checklist also includes important guidance for indie authors regarding how to submit one's manuscript to an editor so that it contains all the information you want edited. For example, some indie authors will only have the main body of their book interiors professionally edited. In that case, often any front matter, back matter, and back cover copy that is added after the fact is riddled with all kinds of spelling errors and typos, diminishing the professional quality of the book. But for indie authors like you who follow the guidelines in this checklist, you'll avoid these issues and end up with the best possible result.

Battlelines: Road to Gettysburg: Civil War Combat Artists and the Pictures They Drew

What did a battle during the Civil War look like?

We have no photographs of Civil War battles because photography had no advanced to where it could stop that kind of action.

But we can get a good idea of what the battles were like from the courageous -- and sometimes reckless -- combat artists from contemporary publications who took to the field and attached themselves to the armies.

Sadly, the work of these men has been largely ignored. Happily, many of their original drawings still exist.

This series of the work of the Civil War combat artists will show you scenes, places and fighting men that you have never seen before -- largely because many of the works in these volumes have remained unpublished even after more than 150 years.

In this volume, you will meet Alfred Waud and Edwin Forbes, the two artists who were with the Union's Army of the Potomac during those fateful days leading up to the battle of Gettysburg, one of the largest and most important engagements of the war.

Kaleidoscope City: Reflections on Planning and London

Published after a century of professional planning in the United Kingdom, Kaleidoscope City brings together short, accessible and engaging opinions from leading practitioners and theorists in the built environment.

Looking to both the past and the future, it raises important and often emotive questions about the design and development of our cities with a particular focus on London. How should we balance economic growth with environmental protection? How big is too big? Edited by prominent urbanist, Jonathan Manns, the work opens and energises debates in urban planning and development in a manner that is locally focussed but globally relevant. Informing and inspiring, it voices the spectrum of opinion which exists at the start of the twenty-first century. This should therefore become required reading for all those with an interest in the future of our cities.

"London, as one of the world's great cities, has many lessons for all of us, and the breadth and scope of this book makes it an invaluable study for anyone concerned with future proofing our built environment."

Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney

"All readers, whatever their personal views, will find much to stimulate their thinking in this book. Its focus and relevance will help us think more clearly about important issues both in London and around the world."

Steve Quartermain, Chief Planner, Department for Communities & Local Government

"This well-crafted book expertly opens debate and offers suggestions to meeting the challenges of planning for the future in a rapidly growing city, constrained by space but striving to remain at the world's top table."

Nick Whitten, News Editor, Estates Gazette

So Lonesome: Hank Williams and the Creation of Country Music (Chicago Shorts)



Hank Williams (1923-53) was an American singer-songwriter and musician regarded as the most important country music artist of all time, creator of an unforgettable sound and persona that helped to define the genre from its infancy and beyond. Though unable to read or notate music to any substantive degree, Williams recorded 11 number one hits between 1948 and 1953, which carried him to music's mainstream and left an enduring legacy. In So Lonesome, Richard A. Peterson captures the free-wheeling entrepreneurial spirit of an era gone by, when the Grand Ole Opry put Nashville's star on the map, while detailing how Williams came to fame and helped launch country music both during his life and after his death. More than just a history of the music and one of its most celebrated performers, So Lonesome explores what it means to live an authentic life within the confines of marketing popular culture.

It's Alive!: The Science of B-Movie Monsters (Chicago Shorts)



The B-movie monster--be it gap-toothed gorilla, ripped-from-time dinosaur, overstretched arachnid, or another outrageous anthropomorphic fantasy--has thrilled moviegoers for decades, and firmly sunk its claws into popular culture. In It's Alive!, Michael LaBarbera delves into the science behind these characters' construction, from the biology surrounding tyrannosaurid postures in Jurassic Park and King Kong to the questionable physics employed by The Incredible Shrinking Man. Accompanied by a treasure trove of images from old movie posters and stills, and ranging from the 1930s to such recent films as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the latest installments of the Alien franchise, It's Alive! cleverly uses science to remind us that the best parts of moviemaking might indeed be magic-for all creatures, great and small.

AM Envelope: The potential of Additive Manufacturing for facade constructions

This book shows the potential of Additive Manufacturing (AM) for the development of building envelopes: AM will change the way of designing facades, how we engineer and produce them. To achieve today's demands from those future envelopes, we have to find new solutions.

The term 'AM Envelope' (Additive Manufacturing Envelope) describes the transfer of this technology to the building envelope. Additive Fabrication is a building block that aids in developing the building envelope from a mere space enclosure to a dynamic building envelope.

AM offers the opportunity to manufacture facades 'just in time'. It is no longer necessary to store or produce large numbers of parts in advance. Initial investment for tooling can be avoided, as design improvements can be realized within the dataset of the AM part. AM is based on 'tool-less' production, all parts can be further developed with every new generation.

The basic principle of AM opens a fascinating new world of engineering, no matter what applications can be found: to 'design for function' rather to 'design for production' turns our way of engineering of the last century upside down. A collection of AM applications therefore offers the outlook to our (built) future in combination with the acquired knowledge.

Vlad the Impaler: Son of Dracul

Many will assume this is just another retelling of the "Dracula" horror myth... but Vlad's story is true. Hitler's Holocaust killed approximately 10% of Germany's people, while some estimates claim that Vlad exterminated more than 20% of his fellow Wallachians. A gruesome genre-bender with perverse humor, based on 15th-century history. Warning: graphic transgressive violence.

Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in the Digital Age

Wayne Clough, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, asks "How can we prepare ourselves to reach the generation of digital natives who bring a huge appetite--and aptitude--for the digital world?" He explains how the Smithsonian is tackling this issue in Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in a Digital Age.

Libraries and archives have already made many documents available through the Internet. The digital world presents a bigger challenge for museums; producing images of 3D objects is more complicated, and collections are built with exhibitions in mind rather than open access on computers.

In 2009, the Smithsonian began digitizing its vast collections to make them accessible to the millions of people who do not visit the museums in person. "Digital access can provide limitless opportunities for engagement and lifelong learning." Clough sees museums gradually moving beyond showcasing collections to engaging the public online so "visitors" can access the objects they find most interesting.

Education has always been at the core of the Smithsonian. Today, the Smithsonian offers materials and lesson plans that meet state standards for K-12 curricula; online summits on many diverse subjects; the Collections Search Center website; and apps. The Smithsonian's website, www.seriouslyamazing.com, draws people in with fun questions and then takes them deeper into the subject. The question "What European colonizer is still invading the U.S. today?" reveals not only the answer--earthworms--but also in-depth info on worms from environmental researchers.

Clough concludes with this thought: "While digital technology poses great challenges, it also offers great possibilities."

Nature matters in conversation

This 12-hour free course looked at where responsibility lies in matters of conservation and what should now constitute the primary focus of attention.

Nixon and the Silver Screen (Chicago Shorts)

Richard Nixon and the film industry arrived in Southern California in the same year, 1913. In Nixon and the Silver Screen, Mark Feeney offers a new and often revelatory way of thinking about one of our most controversial presidents: by looking not just at Nixon's career--but Hollywood's. Nixon viewed more movies while in office than any other president, and Feeney argues that Nixon's story, both in politics and in his personal life, is nothing if not quintessentially American. Bearing in mind the events that shaped his presidency from 1969 to 1974, Feeney sees aspects of Nixon's character--and the nation's--refracted and reimagined in the more than 500 films Nixon watched during his tenure in the White House. The verdict? Nixon's legacy, for better or worse, is forever representative of the "Silver Age" in Hollywood, shaping and being shaped by that flickering silver screen.

Transformations of Urbanising Delta Landscape: An Historic Examination of Dealing with the Impacts of Climate Change for the Kaoping River Delta in Taiwan

This book argues that the floods following extreme precipitation result not only from very heavy rainfall but also from the significant impact of human activities on natural water systems. While most literature emphasises that the increasing magnitude of storm rainfall extends beyond the original protection standards of hydrologic facilities in highly populated delta cities. Based on the knowledge of urban morphology, this study analyses how human systems have affected the transformation of natural water processes in the Kaoping River Delta. The relationship between human environments and natural landscape is illustrated via a 3-layer analytical framework which consists of a natural landscape layer, an infrastructure layer and an occupation layer. This layer-based approach views landscapes as a whole system in which each element interacts with the others.

Understanding culture in territorial management and its implications for spatial planning.: The case of floodplain management in urbanised delta regions in the Netherlands and Thailand

This study presents and applies an integrative conceptual framework which is used to explain how culture, planning policy and territorial management outcomes are interrelated, and what the implications are for spatial planning. The study investigates territorial development processes in the context of floodplain management in urbanised delta regions. This specific context is selected because of its strong relations between physical attributes and spatial planning activities. The analysis is carried out based on a comparative approach at two levels. At the cross-national level, the Rhine-Meuse delta region in the Netherlands and the Chaophraya delta region in Thailand are used as case studies. The comparative approach is useful for this study because culture can be best understood in a relative form. The sub-national analysis emphasises comparison of floodplain management in three selected districts in the Chaophraya delta region. Besides the theoretical contribution, this study contributes methodologically through development of a common conceptual framework that can be applied to the analysis of various issues in territorial management, which is not limited only to the subject studied here.

In Ebert's Bests, he takes readers through the journey of how he became a film critic, from his days at a student-run cinema club to his rise as a television commentator in At the Movies and Siskel & Ebert. Recounting the influence of the French New Wave, his friendships with Werner Herzog and Martin Scorsese, as well as travels to Sweden and Rome to visit Ingrid Bergman and Federico Fellini, Ebert never loses sight of film as a key component of our cultural identity. In considering the ethics of film criticism--why we should take all film seriously, without prejudgment or condescension--he argues that film critics ought always to engage in open-minded dialogue with a movie. Extending this to his accompanying selection of "10 Bests," he reminds us that hearts and minds--and even rankings--are bound to change.

Henry James Collection: The Ghostly Rental, Daisy Miller, the Altar of the Dead

"The Ghostly Rental"Henry James wrote many excellent ghost stories, his most famous being, "The Turn of the Screw." In "The Ghostly Rental," a newcomer in town, who loves to walk for exercise, comes upon a deserted rural road. He follows the road and comes upon a house that immediately strikes him as "simply haunted." He is determined to get into the house and find out the truth about it. What he finds out turns out to be quite different than what he expected. "Daisy Miller""Daisy Miller" is one of Henry James'' shorter and earlier novels. Written in 1878, it portrays the confused courtship of a headstrong American girl by Winterbourne, a compatriot of hers who is much more sophisticated. His pursuit of her is hampered by her own flirtatiousness, which is frowned upon by the other expatriates they meet in Switzerland and Italy. Her lack of understanding regarding social mores of the society she so desperately wishes to enter ultimately leads to a very unexpected ending. In addition to being a very good story, the novel serves as both a psychological description of the mind of a young woman and an analysis of the traditional views of a society to a clear outsider. This continues to be one of James'' most popular works. "The Altar of the Dead""The Altar of the Dead" was first published in the collection "Terminations" in 1895. It is a fable of life and death significance which explores what happens when a man tries to keep the remembrance of his dead friends, to save them from being forgotten entirely in the rush of everyday events. He meets a woman who shares his ideals, only to find that the past places what seems to be an impassable barrier between them. Although James was not a religious man, at least in the conventional sense, this story shows a deep spirituality in its treatment of mortality and the transcendent power of unselfish love. Critics have generally rated this tale very high among James'' works, with some calling it a "glorious fable," "magnificently w

Magic of Colors

The White Slave

The young filmmaker Rene Daalder and the architecture student Rem Koolhaas wrote the screenplay to Daalder's 1969 film De blanke slavin (The White Slave) in 1967/68. Taking inspiration from B-movies and Luis Bunuel, it is a hall of mirrors that toys with cliches and inverts them into campy provocations. A few years after the Eichmann trial, a man named Gunther Unrat arrives in the Netherlands looking for "good Germans" who helped fight the Nazi occupation. He quickly gets mixed up in a nefarious organization that inspires him to follow in the footsteps of the consummate "good German" Albert Schweitzer by setting up a camp for young Dutch women who think they are training to work in Africa as nurses. Blinded by idealism, he fails to see that his shady partners are scheming to sell them into sexual slavery. The screenplay soon develops into an absurd morality play, challenging all notions of political correctness, then and now. It has been translated from the Dutch by Laura Martz, while Rene Daalder has contributed a preface about the origins and background of the film.

Renewing City Renewal: A call for strong design

Between 1970 and 1990 the prewar districts of Dutch cities underwent an unparalleled process of renewal. What began as 'building for the neighbourhood' in protest against extensive demolition has now come to be known as 'city renewal'. Large numbers of affordable dwellings and social facilities were created. However, businesses often disappeared, the quality of public space did not always improve and districts sometimes became isolated from the rest of the city. Since 1990 some of the old city renewal districts have taken off again and become popular (and expensive) housing districts. But others still have problems despite the renewal.

The design studies in this book show how economic activity, infrastructure and public space can be the keys to new strategies for improving city districts. Four 'problem districts' have been chosen as testing grounds: Leiden's Havenkwartier, The Hague's Schilderswijk, Rotterdam's Feijenoord and Amsterdam's Indische Buurt. Three essays describe the history of city renewal, the future of urban renewal and the role of spatial design in changing the existing city. The book ends with a call for meaningful new roles and instruments for architects and urban designers at a time when large-scale urban development has come to a standstill.

Spiral Jetta Summer: Swimming in the Great Salt Lake (Chicago Shorts)



Erin Hogan hit the road in her Volkswagen Jetta and headed west from Chicago in search of the monuments of American land art: a salty coil of rocks, four hundred stainless steel poles, a gash in a mesa, four concrete tubes, and military sheds filled with cubes. Her completed journey took her through the states of Utah, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. It also took her through the states of anxiety, drunkenness, disorientation, and heat exhaustion. Spiral Jetta Summer is a chronicle of this adventure, and it reveals Hogan's unpretentious and boisterous narrative flair on the roads of middle-of-nowhere Utah in pursuit of Robert Smithson's classic work Spiral Jetty. Along the way, Hogan writes about venturing outside of her urban comfort zone; who she encounters; and most importantly, how she found most of what she was looking for and then some.
