Описание: Lost Futures looks in detail at the wide range of buildings constructed in Britain between 1945 and 1979. Although their bold architectural aspirations reflected the forward-looking social ethos of the postwar era, many have since been either demolished or altered beyond recognition.Photographs taken at the time of their completion are accompanied by expertly researched captions that examine the buildings' design, creation, the ideals they embodied and the reasons for their eventual destruction. Lost Futures covers many building types, from housing to factories, commercial spaces and power stations, and presents the work of both iconic and lesser-known architects.
The author charts the complex reasons that led to the loss of these projects' ambitious futures, and assesses whether some might one day be recaptured.

Описание: Sixty years after his father left to be a mapmaker in the war in Europe, Emerson Johansson received a package that had been lost in the mail for decades. The package contained a most extraordinary gift: an exquisite book Johansson s father lovingly handmade detailing an extraordinary adventure they shared together just months before his departure. This book tells the tale of how father and son set out into the mountains on Christmas Eve to cut a tree, but get caught in a dangerous blizzard. Lost in the snow, they are helped by a mysterious figure, a silvery man who does not speak but leaves them a series of gifts that help them survive and who ultimately leads them home in an almost magical way. The enigmatic man's image is not captured in the photographs the boy took with his new camera, pictures he believed, until now, were long lost. Little did he know that his father had taken the photographs, and drawing on vellum overlays from his own memory of that night's events, meticulously reconstructed, mapped, and narrated their adventure, revealing that the curious man in the woods was, in fact, no stranger, but somebody well known to us all. This book, destined to become a Christmas classic, is a faithful facsimile of the magnificent handcrafted present Johnasson s father sent him, and a poignant reminder that the best gifts, of memory, family, and the kindness of strangers, transcend time but never our understanding.

Описание: Neasden Control Centre was the first book to feature the artist project of the same name. It shows how NCC uses talent, technique and a childlike perspective to create works that mix drawing, graphic design and art. Because these multi-disciplinary works are exactly in tune with the zeitgeist, the book achieved cult status in the design scene and is one of the most sought after out-of-print titles at dgv. Lost Control is the self-deprecating title of the new publication from the Neasden Headquarters. The book presents graphic design, installations and collages in NCC s incomparable style that always comes across as simultaneously spontaneous and calculated. These seemingly contradictory, but in NCC s work so coherently united characteristics give their work a powerful appeal. They are not only influencing creatives from around the world today, but are also increasingly recognised by clients such as Volkswagen and international museums such as the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art. The majority of work featured in Lost Control was created by Neasden Control Centre exclusively for this book and is complemented by images from current commercial and artistic projects.
Описание: Few movements in art are more beloved than French impressionism. It was during this period that artists like Monet moved outside the studio to paint elaborate plein air "impressions" of the world around them, from cheerfully colored city scenes, to seascapes during stormy weather and detailed landscapes awash in natural light.
Monet: Lost in Translation. Revisiting Impressionism brings together two hundred full-color images from the period. In addition to their undeniable beauty that leaves viewers breathless, part of the fascination with the French impressionists lies with what these works can tell us about the time of their production--from favorite places like the beaches of Normandy and the banks of the Seine to popular pastimes like picnics and promenades and even the importance of the railroad and other innovations of the day. Beginning with the precursors of the plein air tradition, the book takes readers through masterworks by Corot, Degas, Renoir, Gauguin, Caillebotte, and many of their contemporaries before ending on what is undeniably the movement's most well-loved masterwork: Monet's Water Lilies, painted in his famous garden in Giverny.
Drawing on a vast collection of masterworks from museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the book guides readers through the major works of the movement.
Описание: In this landmark commentary, Craig R. Koester offers a comprehensive look at a powerful and controversial early Christian text, the book of Revelation. Originally written for Christian communities in Asia Minor, Revelation depicts scenes of cosmic conflict in which God, the creator of the world, overcomes the forces of destruction and makes all things new. This often misunderstood portion of the New Testament repeatedly surprises readers by warning that judgment is imminent, only to interrupt the visions of terror with messages of hope and redemption.
Koester provides richly textured descriptions of the book's setting and language, making extensive use of Greek and Latin inscriptions, classical texts, and ancient Jewish writings, including the Dead Sea Scrolls. While Revelation has often been viewed as world-negating, this commentary focuses on its deep engagement with social, religious, and economic issues. It also addresses the book's volatile history of interpretation and its cultural impact over the centuries. The result is a groundbreaking study that provides powerful insights and sets new directions for the continued appreciation of this visionary religious text.

Описание: Explores the history and theory of literary translation as an art form. Arguing that literary translation goes beyond the transfer of linguistic information, the book
emphasizes that imaginative originality resides as much in the translation as in the source text.

Описание: St. Paul's "I Corinthians" stands as one of the Bible's greatest masterpieces and certainly one of the greatest contributions to Christian theology. The epistle
"To the Church which is in Corinth..." addresses itself to the basic tenets of Christian faith as well as down-to-earth matters of moral conduct and standards of Christian living, including
such topics as speaking in tongues, the Resurrection, the Lord's Supper, and the problems of marriage.
The letter also includes Paul's memorable definition of Christian
love.The man who laid the foundations of Christian theology remains important not only for what he taught but for who he was. Professors William F. Orr and James Arthur Walther ask -
and answer - "What kind of Man was Paul?" in their own extended introductory biography of the man: a look at his life, his ministry, and his beliefs.

Описание: For the author, translation has a transcendent importance: `Translation not only plays its important traditional role as the means that allows us access to literature originally written in one of the countless languages we cannot read, but it also represents a concrete literary presence with the crucial capacity to ease and make more meaningful our relationships to those with whom we may not have had a connection before. Translation always helps us to know, to see from a different angle, to attribute new value to what once may have been unfamiliar`.
