Описание: A splendid catalogue devoted to the work of an artist who was responsible for some of the most original glass artworks in art history. Through around 300 works, documents, and original drawings from private collections and museums from all over the world, this important volume reconstructs the work and life of Carlo Scarpa from the very beginnings of his career when he worked as artistic director for the Venini glassworks, between 1932 and 1947. The experience acquired in those years offered Scarpa the possibility of following the experimental vocation that was to also distinguish his work as an architect, and to carry forward research intended to investigate the expressive possibilities of glass the material, to experiment with the age-old crafting techniques of the old masters of Murano and to update the traditional forms of craftsmanship in glass. It is no coincidence that Scarpas glasswork can be organized into no less than thirty distinct styles, differentiated by the technique of execution and the glass construction method used. We need only think of the corrosi (corroded), in which the material is attacked and eaten into by sawdust soaked in hydrofluoric acid. Under Scarpas artistic direction the forms created at the Venini glassworks are more sober and modern, with geometrical inspiration, and above all, the importance of the role of the designer is established in the history of 20th-century Venetian glass, which owes much of its substantial renewal to him.

Описание: An academically rigorous and beautiful new publication on a crucial chapter in fashion history London Couture is the first book to examine, in detail, the luxurious garments produced by the rarefied London couture industry - from lavish ballgowns to sharply tailored suits and spectacular court dress - as well as the designers who conceived them, their clients and the prestigious publications that disseminated and promoted the 'London Look' to an international audience. Expert authors from around the world have delved into museum collections, as well as the archives of prestigious designers, textile suppliers and fashionable journals, to bring together this pioneering study of the London couture houses of the early to midtwentieth century, renowned for their superb craftsmanship and attention to detail. The full breadth of London's offering is examined, from royal favourite Norman Hartnell to pioneer Charles James, and prestigious houses such as Lucile, Worth and Hardy Amies. The ancillary dressmaking trades in London are also considered, as are the international markets for London couture, and the impact of royal dress on high-end fashion.A wealth of visual material supports the extensive, original research - from beautiful features by celebrated photographer Norman Parkinson to the elegant illustrations of Francis Marshall. Previously unseen garments are illustrated throughout the book, alongside historical photography that documents the houses of the great designers, their favoured fabrics and their most glamorous clients, including Queen Elizabeth II, Margot Fonteyn, and many stars of stage and screen.

Описание: The Russian Avant-Garde movement is a common term denoting a most remarkable art phenomenon that flourished in Russia from 1890 to 1930 which covered art, literature, cinema, sculpture, architecture and political propaganda. Work from this period is easily recognizable thanks to bright colors, geometric shapes and bold lettering. This lavishly illustrated exhibition catalogue features six major works from renowned Russian Avant-Garde artists: Kazimir Malevich, Vladimir Tatlin, Ivan Kliun, Ilja Chashnik, El Lissitzky and Lyubov Popova. These works will be accompanied by a selection of original documents, objects, manuscripts and photographs from the art historian and independent scholar Andr i Nakov's private collection which will contribute to highlight the importance of this critical current in the formulation of Modern Art. The book will also refer to the contribution in the late 1950s by Canadian diplomats posted in Moscow and their role in assisting George Costakis, collector of Russian art whose collection became the most representative body of Modern Russian Avant-Garde art anywhere. Numerous publications have been devoted to the non-objective Russian Avant-Garde in recent years, but there is still much to be explored with regard to the movement and its beginnings.
Get a close look at every production motorcycle ever built by BMW.
The Complete Book of BMW Motorcycles is a thorough year-by-year guide to every production machine ever built by Germany's leading motorcycle manufacturer. All the classic bikes are here--pre-World War II BMWs such as the R5 that defined performance in that era; the military R12 that carried the Wehrmacht as it blitzkrieged its way across Europe; the Earles-forked R69S that offered the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar; the R90S cafe racer; the K1 "flying brick"; and the GS (Gelande Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution, right up to today's world-class S1000RR.
All of BMW's bike families are covered--the side-valve machines from the early years, the early overhead-valve performance bikes, the postwar Airheads and Oilheads, the four- and six-cylinder touring bikes, the early pushrod singles, the modern overhead-cam singles, the latest parallel twins, and inline four-cylinder sport bikes. From the first model, the R32 that launched BMW's motorcycle dynasty, to the latest (and fastest) model, the World-Superbike-dominating S1000RR, The Complete Book of BMW Motorcycles captures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence with a combination of historic and contemporary photos.
Complete technical specifications for each model make this book a must-have for any serious BMW aficionado. Don't miss the most thorough reference to these outstanding German motorcycles available today
Описание: These are the uniforms not normally seen on an everyday basis by Air Force members, and include both formal and informal examples. With over 1,000 images, it is possible to trace the introduction of the various uniforms and the changes made over the years. Recognizing that uniforms come and go, this study provides the collector and historian with the uniform, and where possible, the story behind the uniform. Dave Schultz and Johnny Schlund provide a combination of decades of research, and cover aspects of the formation of such distinctive career fields as Flight Nurses, WAF Utility Uniforms, Physical Training Uniforms, the USAF Honor Guard, and the largest of USAF career fields, the Security Forces.
Описание: Compiled from official source documents this book covers the entire period of the USAAF, pre-war and post-war, and throughout World War II, up to the fomation of the independent U.S. Air Force in 1947. Described are many hitherto unknown facts about the USAAF involvement in the worldwide war theaters. This includes information about converting the Eighth Air Force in England to night bombing, because of the horrendous losses being suffered over Germany, and how the timely development of the Merlin-engined P-51 helped to prevent this. Full details are given of the conversion of B-17s to the night bombing role. The book covers the toal subject in chronological order, with chapters covering 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945-1947. All details, and the reasons for the changes, are given for the camouflage colors, camouflage schemes, national insignia, and aircraft markings. A chapter is devoted to a brief description of the combat aircraft distinctive markings evolved by the Eighth Air Force (these will be covered fully in a subsequent book), a complete history of the Invasion stripes used during the Allied assault on Europe in 1944 (the author had these Top-Secret files declassified in 1966), and a selection of some of the unit insignia used by various USAAF units. A final chapter discusses the evolution of the camouflage and gloss colors used by the USAAF, including the official color standard numbers employed in the various color specifications up to, and including, FS 595B, and includes color swatches of them. Two appendices cover the aircraft designation system, and the aircraft maintenance markings. All aircraft camouflage schemes are shown in full color, as three-view drawins, where applicable. This includes the almost unknown special camouflage schemes evolved by the Army in North West Africa, to reduce losses due to the unexpected German counterattack, near the Kasserine Pass in Tunisia. The text of the numerous official technical orders are given in full, allowing the reader to see their complete progression for the first time. The meetins of the applicable joint meetings with members of the allied nations, and the effect of their decisions are fully covered, together with some surprising differences. This book is an indispensable reference for historians, restorers of USAAF aircraft, museums, and modelers.

Описание: Christian Dior pulled off a coup that would revolutionise the international fashion scene when he showed his first collection on 12 February 1947. Thus was the
'New Look' born, which made his Paris fashion house world-famous overnight. Today Dior's early collections symbolise the rebirth of Paris haute couture after 1945.
only a few years Christian Dior rose to rule over a flourishing luxury empire and was celebrated throughout the world as the monarch of fashion until his sudden death in October 1957.
His twenty-two haute couture collections - including the celebrated A and H as well as Tulip lines - comprising some three thousand models, represent a design legacy that, more than
any other, wrote 20th-century fashion history. This superlative publication marks two anniversaries: it is published sixty years after the first Christian Dior collection was launched and fifty
years after his untimely death.
For the first time the links between Christian Dior and Germany in the founder years of Maison Dior (1947-1957) are focused on. Twenty
original, for the most part unpublished Dior models from German museums are shown, including the fabulous Marlene Dietrich Collection in Berlin. The twenty-four Dior fashion jewellery
sets made in Pforzheim presented here are astonishingly fine and richly diverse.
This sumptuously illustrated book contains an extensive annotated catalogue as well as
essays by five distinguished fashion and jewellery specialists, on the fashion jewellery made under a licensing agreement in Germany for Dior, the early Dior fashion shows in Germany,
Christian Dior's sole post-war visit to Germany as well as the reception of Dior fashions as echoed in German-language journals and magazines of that time.

Описание: The writing of this book, the first in-depth and fully detailed research about the early years of the Chel Haavir from the light-plane days to the supersonic fighters received roughly ten years later is the culmination of a long research period by the author. Research that was made harder by the tight but understandable and respected security measures involving Israels Forces. An exceptional source of information has been the help provided by many Chel HaAvir veterans who fought in the early days during 1948/1949, and those who helped establish a viable air force in 1949-1956 in spite of tight budgets, obsolescent equipment and lack of experience, and also those who fought in Sinai in late 1956, establishing the seeds for its future role as the airborne shield of Israel. As the reader will discover, the beginnings were extremely hard, and the Chel HaAvir had to face unfriendly attitudes from both the United States and the United Kingdom, which took place while many people civilian and military were dying in the newborn Hebrew state. But in observing that official policies do not always reflect the citizenships feelings, most of the colorful band of foreign volunteers that helped the Chel Haavir and the other defense forces to resist, fight back and win, came from those countries. These foreign volunteers, mostly with combat experience in World War II, provided a core in which many highly talented young Israelis learned fast. One thing was certain, then and now; Israel exists because of the resolute people that live in this small country, both civilian and military, but above all because of the Chel Haavir which in the following years would be proclaimed the most combat experienced air force in the world.
