Описание: This long overdue monograph presents an astonishing collection of images by Los Angeles photographer Julian Wasser. Some are very well known such as an iconic Joan Didion leaning against a Corvette Stingray in Hollywood 1968 and Marcel Duchamp playing chess at his seminal 1963 Pasadena exhibition. But many such as Barbara Hershey and David Carrodine in bed in their Laurel Canyon house (1972), or Jack Nicholson and Angelica Huston at Jack's Mulholland Drive house (1974) start to paint a picture of a very private Hollywood of the 60s and 70s when privacy was possible and celebrity culture had not yet consumed society. Mixed in with the iconic faces are pictures of California counterculture such as the Hog Farm Commune in Sunland (1968) music starts such as Crosby Stills & Nash, Joni Mitchell and Elton John, and a haunting picture of Roman Polanski at his house on Cielo Drive after the murder of Sharon Tate (1969).

Описание: Geologically unique, rich in flora and fauna, wild, remote and steeped in history, the many islands around the long and rugged coastline of Scotland are among the most unspoilt and beautiful destinations to be found anywhere on our crowded planet. Formed during massive and violent upheavals in the Earth's crust nearly three billion years ago and later eroded and shaped by the action of ice, the islands of Scotland also bear the scars of thousands of years of human occupation. From Neolithic settlements, chambered burial tombs, megalithic stone circles, and Iron Age brochs, to early Celtic Christian chapels, Viking place names, clan fortresses, deserted townships of the infamous 'clearances' and more modern relics of both world wars, the islands of Scotland are a historical treasure trove second to none.From the sand-blown machair of Tiree and the white shell-sand beaches of Barra to the towering sea-cliffs and stacks of remote St Kilda and the dramatic Cullins of Skye, the Scottish islands are famed worldwide for their beauty. Internationally recognised for their flora and fauna, the islands are also home to many important nature reserves that provide a safe haven for rare and endangered plant and bird species. The surrounding seas, rich in marine life, not only support vast colonies of seabirds but also large numbers of seal, whale, dolphin and porpoise.Exploring the Islands of Scotland is both beautiful and practical and not only provides the intrepid traveller with a fascinating insight into each island's history and flora and fauna, but also contains valuable information on how to get there, tourist information, what to see, where to stay and island walks.

Описание: Swan & Maclaren were the most prominent and prestigious architectural practice working in Singapore during the latter part of the British era, that is to say, from 1892, when the firm was founded, through to independence in 1965. As such, the history of Singapore architecture, during that period, is very much the history of Swan & Maclaren. Of course there were other important players, local Singaporeans as well as British, working in Singapore at this time, but there is no denying that Swan & Maclaren were the key players during this era, representing the architects of choice for those who could afford them their list of clients during the period we are considering reads like a litany of the good and the great of Singapore. The output of the firm was extraordinary, too, ranging from corporate blockbusters like the Hongkong & Shanghai Bank and the Union Building of the 1920s, to factories, shophouses, department stores, hotels, schools and university buildings, railway stations, churches, mosques, a synagogue, bungalows, even the odd cattle shed And not just in Singapore, but also in Peninsular Malaya (later Malaysia), Bangkok, Rangoon and the east Bornean state of Sarawak, once the fiefdom of the White Rajahs, later a Crown Colony. The names of partners and senior members of staff are also among the most famous in Singapore s architectural record: the eponymous Messrs Swan and Maclaren who founded the firm, Regent Alfred John Bidwell, one of the most talented architects of the British era, famous for having designed Raffles Hotel, the Victoria Memorial Hall and Theatre, the Chased-el Synagogue, the Teutonia Club (today s Goodwood Park Hotel), Stamford House and much else besides; Arts and Crafts maestro, Scotsman David McLeod Craik; the 1920s and thirties triumvirate of starchitects, Frank Lundon, Denis Santry and Frank Brewer; Serbian Slobodan Petrovitch who designed the Tanjong Pagar Railways Station, and C. Y. Koh, author of everyone s favorite early Modernist masterpiece, the Water Boat House on Fullerton Road. Similarly in the postwar era, when we see the emergence of a new generation of local Singaporean architects who would lead the practice through to independence. The scope of the book covers the period from the mid-1880s, when the two eponymous founding partners, Archibald A. Swan and J. W. B. Maclaren first came to Singapore, and continues through to the end of the British era in 1965."
