Mark Lewisohn "The Beatles: All These Years (комплект из 2 книг)"

8576.00 руб

With a dash through their respective school exits, John and Paul would arrive together on the same stretch of street at the same moment and were truants for the afternoon - "sagging off". John would have his guitar ready. From a stop on Catharine Street, they boarded the 86 bus, a green double-decker like those driven by Harry Harrison, father of Paul's young schoolfriend George. They found their way upstairs and had a smoke, strumming strings while the bus bounced them out to the southern suburbs. Within thirty minutes of sneaking out, they were inside Paul's terraced council house at 20 Forthlin Road, empty in the daytime. As Jim McCartney would no more let Paul skip school than allow that boy in the house, subterfuge was vital. Afternoon sessions, two till five, ended with a hurried wafting around of smoke and washing of dirty dishes... though by then they'd often written another song.

2293.00 руб

When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved? To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan.

Colin Cowie "Weddings"

8656.00 руб

Weddings is the most anticipated wedding book of the year, and for good reason: it's as gorgeous, filling, and sweet as a double slice of wedding cake. As Colin Cowie explains in the book's introduction, he earned recognition as a wedding designer by paying attention to the personalities and desires of the bride and groom as well as the smallest, most excruciating details. "Style should prevail," he says, explaining that style has nothing to do with the design of the dress or the make of the limousine and everything to do with confidence, consideration, and graciousness toward others; it's a tone everyone can respect. The typical bride and groom may not be rich, famous, or personally acquainted with famous musicians who beg to play at the reception, and the example weddings pictured in the book are conspicuous-consumption daydreams for many. But everyone wants to plan their own perfect wedding, and Cowie is a genius at the fine embellishments that can make a modest wedding more...

Emily Dickinson "The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson"

3280.00 руб

Emily Dickinson is today universally acknowledged as a poet of the high­est order. Writing apart from the mainstream of nineteenth-century poetry, she forged a poetic language of her own, transforming the domestic into the lyrical, creating an entire world from the micro­cosm of a leaf, a blade of grass, or a single metaphor. The startling originality of her work is what doomed it to obscurity during her lifetime. When Emily Dickinson died in 1886, only eleven of her poems had been published. Left behind was a body of work far more extensive than anyone had imagined - stacks and stacks of poems, tied together in packets with twine. Early posthumously published collec­tions of Emily Dickinsons verse - some of them featuring liberally "edited" versions of her poems - did not fully or accurately represent the poet's bold experiments in prosody, her tragic vision, or the range of her intellectual and emotional explo­rations. Not until the 1955 publication of THE COMPLETE...

John Szarkowski "Ansel Adams at 100"

3737.00 руб

Grandly proportioned, linen-bound and graceful as the images it conveys, "Ansel Adams at 100" commemorates the birth of the famous native San Franciscan photographer with 114 of Adams's rich, beloved images spanning his oeuvre, and some delightful photos of the artist. The book and accompanying centennial exhibit at San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art (Aug. 2001-Jan. 2002), curated by John Szarkowski, director of the department of photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art, reevaluate the impact of Adams's work on photography, landscapes and the audience. "His pictures have enlarged our visceral knowledge of things that we do not understand," writes Szarkowski. He relates specific epiphanies that propelled Adams's evolution as an artist, such as when he shot Monolith, the Face of Half Dome, having suddenly realized that using a specific filter would "deepen the tone of the sky almost to black" and capture his emotional experience of the vista.
