50 LESSONS TO LEARN FROM FRANK LLOYD WRI

50 Lessons to Learn from Frank Lloyd Wright begins with a simple question. What lessons can designers today learn from Frank Lloyd Wright? Unlike recent books focusing on Wright’s tumultuous personal life and the Taliesin Fellowship, and equally unlike certain works that paint Wright as a mythical hero or genius, this handsome and valuable volume aims to reveal some of the design tools Wright used to create exceptional architecture, interiors, and landscapes—and how we may glean insight from an American master and find inspiration for the thoughtful design of our own homes. By means of succinct examples, pithy texts by noted architecture experts Aaron Betsky and Gideon Fink Shapiro, and evocative visuals provided by photographer Andrew Pielage, they share fifty lessons, or "learning points," with an eye to Wright-designed houses and interiors, ranging from "Let Nature Inspire You," "Screen, Don’t Close," and "Embroider Rooms with Textiles," to "Look to Asia," "Design for Resilience" and "Balance the Whole." Each lesson is accompanied by color photographs, original Wright drawings, newly commissioned diagrams, thoughtful analysis by the authors, and pearls of wisdom gathered from the master's trove of writings on architecture and design. Beyond specific lessons, this volume offers an informal yet richly detailed introduction to this seminal figure, world-famous for his romantic Fallingwater and magical Guggenheim Museum, and will be of much interest to the budding architecture enthusiast as well as to the interior designer, to those seeking ideas for their own homes, and to fans of Frank Lloyd Wright looking for just the right book.

A SUMMER PLACE. LIVING BY THE SEA

For this ode to summer living, noted designer and author Tricia Foley discusses how to create airy and relaxed homes, which capture the essence of the seaside. A Summer Place reflects the natural charm, understated beauty, and sophistication of the properties of notable tastemakers of Long Island's idyllic seaside community of Bellport-Brookhaven, where Foley resides. This beautifully photographed collection of homes offers inspirational ideas for making your home a personal sanctuary. Featured are modern residences by the sea designed around their water views, nineteenth-century shingle-style cottages that have been restored for today's living, and artist retreats filled with color, pattern, and unique style. Many of these houses, with their screened porches, handcrafted outbuildings, and summer gardens have ideas that translate to seaside living anywhere. Some are decorated with subtle hues of sky blue, white floorboards, and comfortable rustic or contemporary furnishings. The grounds vary from manicured lawns that roll down to the sea to wild landscapes of seagrass, and lovely pergolas dripping with wisteria to working cutting gardens. With sections on summer decorating style, casual outdoor entertaining, seasonal flowers, and weekend guest tips, this book shares several ways to enjoy summer living at home.

ALELUYA. MISTICA Y RELIGIONES EN EL ROCK

La espiritualidad y las grandes religiones de la humanidad han influido en numerosos músicos a lo largo de la historia del rock. Entre ellos, destacan cuatro extraordinarios artistas que conforman los pilares sobre los que descansa este libro, y cuyas obras agrupan las cuatro grandes religiones: hinduismo ―reflejado en la obra de George Harrison―, cristianismo-judaísmo ―que forma el sustrato de numerosas canciones de Bob Dylan―, islam ―representado por Cat Stevens, también conocido como Yusuf Islam tras su conversión a esta religión―, y budismo-zen ―cuya influencia es fundamental en la obra de Leonard Cohen―. Asimismo, el poso de las religiones y el misticismo es notorio en la obra de otros grandes artistas como Patti Smith, Nick Cave, Sinéad O’Connor, Van Morrison, Suzanne Vega, Johnny Cash y Nico, que también son analizados con detalle en esta obra. Alberto Manzano es un gran historiador de la música rock y un reconocido periodista musical que ha publicado para El País, El Mundo, La Vanguardia, ABC, El Periódico de Catalunya, Rockdelux y Ajoblanco. Desde 1980 ha traducido a los grandes poetas del rock en más de cien libros publicados. Es autor de ensayos biográficos sobre Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Kevin Ayers y Leonard Cohen.

ALFRED HITCHCOCK

Imperturbable, cínico, misógino, machista, reprimido, ambiguo y genial. Todo eso y mucho más era Alfred Hitchcock. Abraham Menéndez aka Abe The Ape rinde un sentido y personal homenaje al hombre que supo plasmar en imágenes conceptos perturbadores como la necrofilia, el fetichismo y la represión sexual a través de unas películas noir que ya forman parte de la historia del cine. Este controvertido e inquietante mito de la gran pantalla fue un personaje único que alcanzó el éxito planetario y se convirtió en el primer director estrella. Este libro recorre su filmografía, sus actrices fetiches y sus influencias a través de unas ilustraciones elegantes, irónicas y repletas de influencias vintage.
