Описание: Ben Logan won the hearts of readers the world over with his 1975 memoir, "The Land Remembers." He returns to the farmland of his youth in "Christmas Remembered," a loving tribute to holiday rituals and the people who make them happen: people like his mother, who was married on Christmas Day, and people like his wife, who brought her own traditions from the mountains of Mexico. "Rituals do not persist simply because they may possess a magical power from outside us," Logan tells us. "They live because they touch something inside us that is wanting and waiting to come out and express itself." With a new foreword by Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, "Christmas Remembered" will make you laugh and cry--and grow nostalgic for your own holiday seasons past.

Описание: Enjoy a nostalgic look back at Allentown, Pennsylvania, during its "Golden Age", from the late 1890s through the 1950s. During this period, Allentowns citizens left behind their frugal Pennsylvania German traditions to take on the social and cultural trappings of the twentieth century. Capitalising on a labour force swelled by an influx of immigrants, local entrepreneurs created many new businesses and factories. As their fortunes and aspirations grew, these men built large mansions, hotels, and public parks. Amusement parks sprang up, theatres were built on Hamilton Street, and Allentown became an All-American city with an upscale future. Over 360 images of vintage postcards and memorabilia bring this exciting time in Allentowns history to life.

Описание: Rising dramatically above all other skyscrapers at the tip of Manhattan, the World Trade Center symbolized New York. From any direction, the Towers were
lodestars, Manhattan's local mountains. As New Yorkers desperately seek a path toward healing, following the dark events of September 11th, they have been reminiscing about the
view of the Towers they once had from their homes and offices.
Visitors too are remembering how the WTC looked as they approached Manhattan by car or by plane or from
the water. The WTC was a compass. As we mourn for the terrible loss of life, we also want to remember.
The 72 images of the World Trade Center presented in this book
depict a New York we once knew, one we are now working to rebuild. For more than two decades, practically since the Twin Towers were ere
ted, Sonja Bullaty and Angelo Lomeo have been photographing these awesome buildings. The pictures featured portray the WTC from all directions, starting with views from the east at
dawn, and ending with evening views from the west.
There are panoramas from Brooklyn, Lower Manhattan, New Jersey, and uptown, taken in all seasons, as well as a
section showing the grand Plaza at the centre of the buildings. Together, they create a portrait of the Twin Towers. Paul Goldberger's text evokes the Towers and the city they came to
He recalls how they evolved in the public mind, targets of criticism to beloved American icons. He explains their architectural significance and explores their visceral
meaning to New Yorkers. In contrast to books depicting the disaster and the days following it, this photographic memoir should be welcomed by all of us - New Yorkers and visitors alike
- who yearn to remember the way life was.
