Описание: The art of southern and eastern Africa, unlike the better-known traditions of central and western Africa, is often overlooked. The complex history of the region, marked by migrations rather than settled kingdoms, and the very nature of the objects produced, seen as craft artefacts by western eyes, are the main reasons for this relative obscurity. The objects illustrated and catalogued in the book include rare figural sculptures, jewellery, regalia, prestige staffs carved with ornamental heads and decorations, walking/fighting sticks, headrests, snuff containers and the occasional ornamental but useful adornments which double as combs and snuff spoons. The source of distinctiveness for the artefacts of the southern African region lies in the pastoral and specifically nomadic nature of the cattle culture shared by the majority of the peoples in the region. The functional beauty of the objects and their small size are linked to the necessary ease to take them along as the need to move arose.

Описание: Following on from Mapping New York and Mapping London, Mapping America: Exploring the Continent takes a similar approach in its presentation, thematically arranging a vivid collection of historic, demographic, cultural and artistic maps to aid the reader on their journey. Featuring four centuries of maps that depict the changing landscape of North America, Mapping America charts the continent through numerous landmark events and uprisings, including the Civil War, the Civil Rights Movement, and more recent concerns, such as the environment and terrorism. From early maps depicting the country's colonial beginnings, through to contemporary maps depicting America today, the book presents the reader with a multi-faceted view of the North American physical and cultural landscape; from maps showing the electoral routes of Presidential campaigns, to the diminishing native communities shown in census maps, to maps charting the country's health statistics. Alongside the historic, geographic, and political, the book also pays particular attention to the artistic and imaginative, documenting America's rich and descriptive literary and artistic past. The journey taken by Jack Kerouac in the seminal book On the Road is documented in a hand-drawn map, whilst numerous artists known for their interest in cartography will be featured, from the representational to the abstract, including Paula Scher with The United States and Daniel Medina with Map Cube World. Not just for cartography enthusiasts, Mapping America: Exploring the Continent appeals to the general reader, as well as specialists in the areas of geography, art, architecture and design. The book's breadth of material, with a variety of maps ranging from the historically accurate to the imaginative and entertaining, makes it accessible to all, and a perfect Christmas gift.

Описание: Ten-years-in-the-making, Austin Granger s "Elegy from the Edge of a Continent: Photographing Point Reyes" is a earnest beacon to an extraordinary place. It is a book about Sir Francis Drake and the Golden Hind, Miwok Indians and eucalyptus trees, sea lions and elk. It is a book about wind and fog, lupine and firs, starfish and granite and daffodils. Combining haunting black and white photographs with wide-ranging prose, that is at turns penetrating, humorous, and poignant, "Elegy from the Edge of a Continent" is both a heartfelt memoir to a singular land, and a luminous meditation on how we make, and are made by, the world around us. It is, above all, a work of love. "
