Описание: Vivid colors, delicate stonework, and opulent decor are the trademarks of the palaces, forts, and mansions of India's maharajas. With their vast marble halls, jewel-box mirrored rooms, mosaics, and tapestries, these palaces present a veritable visual feast. In styles ranging from Art Deco to modern, from Indian folk style to English Colonial, the palaces of Rajasthan, dating from as early as AD 760 to as recently as the middle of the last century, are astonishingly innovative and modern. Many of the most luxurious of them have been converted to hotels. Lavishly illustrated with more than 250 specially commissioned photographs, "India Sublime" offers twenty-one of the most sumptuous palace hotels, displaying their interior decoration in great detail, as well as showing their pleasure pavilions, gardens, and pools. Now travelers-both real and armchair-can experience the lifestyles of the princes and princesses of old.
Описание: In 1967, a 17-year-old aspiring photographer named Ed Caraeff found himself front row at the Monterey Pop Festival, California. Caraeff had never seen Hendrix before, nor was he familiar with his music. But Caraeff had his ever-present camera and as Hendrix lit his guitar, he snapped a photo. That picture - Hendrix burning his guitar at Monterey - has become one of the most iconic images of rock and roll. A photo that defined Hendrix as an artist, appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine not once, but twice, and launched Caraeff's photographic career. Timed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival, Capturing Jimi reveals never-before published images from the magnificent, Hendrix-dedicated archive that Caraeff has compiled.
From onstage to backstage, Jimi Hendrix was as electric in front of the camera as he was when he strummed his guitar. In Capturing Jimi, Caraeff showcases more than 100 images, including rare shots and contract sheets, and discusses his experiences with this incredible musician.

Описание: Elegant Japanese products, architecture, and interiors that build upon tradition while defining the future of design. After the visual excesses of the first decade of the new millennium, there now appears to be a distinct demand for clear and rational, yet forwardthinking, design. Seamlessly melding aesthetics, functionality, and quality while simultaneously avoiding excess has been a foundation of Japanese handicraft for hundreds of years. Creatives from Japan are masters at skillfully combining rational functionality with a contemporary sense of design in a way that seems effortless and even playful. Sublime is a comprehensive collection of the relevant trends in Japanese design that reveals the country's overall design aesthetic. The book presents architecture, interiors, and products that are created with an approach that is both rational and visionary. The results of this striking combination often appear futuristic and somehow transcendent. Japanese architecture is adept at bringing inner and outer areas of buildings together harmoniously. Even the smallest rooms can seem surprisingly spacious. Sublime explores the impact of the interplay between old-style handicraft and modern technology as well as traditional and high-tech materials on Japanese design. It features work by established names such as Naoto Fukasawa, Tokujin Yoshioka, Kengo Kuma, and Nendo, and introduces talent from a new generation that has found its own design style somewhere between a traditional Japanese approach and modern or post-modern influences. As the book clearly shows, a Japanese design philosophy based on local traditions has not only survived a general trend toward Westernization, but it is also being translated into outstanding examples of contemporary visual culture around the world.
