The Banquet of Esther Rosenbaum

Editura: ALCEMI

Anul aparitiei: 2008

This work portrays the interwar cabaret scene in Munich and Berlin, seen through the eyes of a seven foot Jewish giantess. It reveals the tapestry of Jewish culture, evoked through food, theatre, clothes and custom, at the point at which it is about to unravel. This retro epic evokes Angela Carter's brand of burlesque magic realism.

The Deer Wedding

Editura: ALCEMI

Anul aparitiei: 2011

Two periods of Croatian history are interwoven in the stories of a sculptor and a student both seeking truths about their parents. Antun belongs to 1941, the time of the first Independent State of Croatia, and Dagmar, 1998, when a second attempt at independence was forged, following the Balkan War of 1992 - 1995. Set in Split, Zagreb and Hvar, the novel explores how a country like Croatia could implode into such violence; how history is still a living (and unspent) force for many and how might it be possible to trace out a future when so much has been broken and destroyed. Can a country torn apart by civil war ever know peace? Was the price paid for independence really worth it?

The Japanese Pottery Handbook: Revised Edition

Editura: KESSINGER PUB LLC

Anul aparitiei: 2014

The Japanese Pottery Handbook, first published by Kodansha in 1979, has become a classic, beloved by anyone interested in pottery for its practical, step-by-step approach, and homespun charm. Now, thirty-five years since its publication, authors Penny Simpson and Lucy Kitto have refreshed their work, expanding and adding to the material, re-designing the pages, and re-drawing many of the delightful illustrations. The book has a cleaner, more modern look, yet retains the simple, friendly, and distinctively Japanese sensibility of the original. In addition to the new layout and drawings, the authors have tweaked the text and expanded several sections (including the discussion of underglazing and overglazing, and the Tea Ceremony and its utensils). There's also a new page showing different types of brushes; and the Information chapter has been updated to include websites and recent books. The book is a manual to the way pots are made in Japan, their forms, and their decorations.The authors give a thorough account of both traditional and modern techniques and also describe in detail tools, materials, glazes, and the setup of workshops and kilns. Lucy Kiitto's sprightly drawings infuse ...
