Texts by Kazi Khaled Ashraf, Philip Goad, Rosa Maria Falvo, and Syed Manzoorul Islam Rafiq Azam is a world-renowned architect, who recently received the LEAF 2012 Residential Building of the Year Award at the London Design Festival. His holistic approach incorporates all the elements of nature, harnessing its beauty and potential in very practical ways. From a uniquely Bangladeshi perspective, his designs reflect the synergies of living environments. Considering the planning conditions of Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, Azam’s architectural language is quintessential, with traditional courtyards, ghats, and ample internal and external greenery, merging rural typologies in an intensely urban context. Designing exquisite water bodies and natural light rooms with unfolding wall systems, Azam emphasises the subtle interrelationships of ambience, form and function. With more than 300 images, sketches, and aerial views, alongside watercolours and poetry, this exceptionally beautiful and original book offers a unique introduction to a visionary architect and Bangladeshi contemporary living and culture. Rosa Maria Falvo is a writer and curator, specialising in Asian contemporary art and photography. Kerry Hill is an acclaimed Australian architect and influential figure in South East Asia. Kazi Khaled Ashraf is a Bangladeshi historian at the University of Hawaii. Philip Goad is the Deputy Dean of Architecture at the University of Melbourne.

Item Description: SKIRA, 2014. 330 pages. "La mostra "La camicia bianca secondo me. Gianfranco Ferré" e il volume-catalogo edito da Skira con la direzione artistica di Luca Stoppini sono il risultato della collaborazione tra la Fondazione Museo del Tessuto di Prato e la Fondazione Gianfranco Ferré. Concepiti con l'intento di mettere in luce il talento creativo e la progettualità dello stilista, catalogo e mostra propongono diverse modalità di analisi e di lettura della camicia bianca Ferré, presenza costante che corre come un fil rouge lungo tutta la sua carriera, definita da lui stesso "segno del mio stile", oppure lessico "contemporaneo dell'eleganza". In perfetta sintonia con il concept della mostra, il volume di Skira propone un contenuto articolato in molteplici elementi che puntano alla valorizzazione della camicia bianca e ad una visione della progettualità di Gianfranco Ferré applicata a questo must, evidenziandone gli elementi costruttivi più innovativi e le infinite, affascinanti interpretazioni. Il contenuto del catalogo: contributi e approfondimenti di protagonisti dello stile, della moda e dell'architettura italiana; una avvincente sequenza di immagini fotografiche di Luca Stoppini ed una di simulazioni x-ray a cura di Leonardo Salvini, frutto di una ricerca tecnica sviluppata in collaborazione con l'Opificio delle Pietre Dure di Firenze; disegni e bozzetti originali di Gianfranco Ferré e foto di passerella. Parte integrante del volume sono le 27 schede a cura di Daniela Degl'Innocenti, conservatrice del Museo di Prato. ". Bookseller Inventory # 978-88-572-2332-2

Item Description: WILEY-ACADEMY, 2014. 288 pages. Luke Him Sau/Lu Qianshou (1904–1991) is best known internationally and in China as the architect of the iconic Bank of China Headquarters in Shanghai. One of the first Chinese students to be trained at the Architectural Association in London in the late 1920s, Luke’s long, prolific and highly successful career in China and Hong Kong offers unique insights into an extraordinary period of Chinese political turbulence that scuppered the professional prospects and historical recognition of so many of his colleagues. Global interest in China has risen exponentially in recent times, creating an appetite for the country’s history and culture. This book satiates this by providing a highly engaging and visual account of China’s 20th-century architecture through the lens of one of the country’s most distinguished yet overlooked designers. It features over 250 new colour photographs by Edward Denison of Luke’s buildings and original archive material. The book charts Luke’s life and work, commencing with his childhood in colonial Hong Kong and his apprenticeship with a British architectural firm before focusing on his education at the Architectural Association (1927–30). In London, Luke was offered the post of Head of the Architecture Department at the newly established Bank of China, where IM Pei’s father was a senior figure. Luke spent the next seven years in the inimitable city of Shanghai designing buildings all over China for the Bank before the Japanese invasion in 1937 forced him, and countless others, to flee to the proxy wartime capital of Chongqing. In 1945 he returned to Shanghai where he formed a partnership with four other Chinese graduates of UK universities; but civil war (between the Communists and Nationalists) once again caused him and others to uproot in 1949. Initially intent on fleeing with the Nationalists to Taiwan, Luke was almost convinced to stay in Communist China but decided finally to move to Hong Kong. There, for the third time in his life, he had to establish his career all over again. Despite many challenges, he eventually prospered, becoming a pioneer in the design of private residences, schools, hospitals, chapels and public housing. Bookseller Inventory # 978-1-118-44902-8

Item Description: TUSQUETS, 1997. 680 pages. "Beno®t Mandelbrot es conocido como el «padre de los fractales». Pero ¿qué es la geometría fractal? Concedamos la palabra al propio Mandelbrot: «¿Por qué a menudo se describe la geometría como algo "frío" y "árido"? Si, es incapaz de descubrir la forma de la nube, una montaña, una costa o un árbol, porque ni las nubes son esféricas, ni las montañas cónicas, ni las costas circulares, ni el tronco de un árbol cilíndrico, ni un rayo rectilíneo. (…) Creo que muchas formas de la naturaleza son tan irregulares y fragmentadas que la naturaleza no sólo presenta un grado mayor de complejidad, sino que ésta se nos revela completamente diferente. (…) La existencia de estas formas representa un desafío: (…) la investigación de la morfología de lo «amorfo". (…) En respuesta a este desafío, concebí y desarrollé una nueva geometría de la naturaleza y empecé a aplicarla a una serie de campos. Permite describir muchas de las formas irregulares y fragmentadas que nos rodean, dando lugar a teorías coherentes, identificando una serie de formas que llamo fractales. (…) Algunos conjuntos fractales [tienen] formas tan disparatadas que ni en las ciencias ni en las artes he encontrado palabras que lo describieran bien. El lector puede hacerse una idea de ello ahora mismo con sólo echar una rápida mirada a las ilustraciones de este libro». Y termina: «Contra lo que hubiera podido parecer en un principio, la mayoría de mis trabajos han resultado ser los dolores de parto de una nueva disciplina científica». Lo son, en efecto, de tal manera que esta nueva disciplina, la geometría fractal de la naturaleza, protagonizan hoy múltiples investigaciones en todos los campos de la ciencia.".

Item Description: ROUTLEDGE, 2014. 166 pages. In 1935 Jung gave a now famous course of five lectures at the Tavistock Clinic in London. In them he set out in lucid and compelling fashion his theory of the mind and the methods he had used to arrive at his conclusions: dream analysis, word assocation and ‘active imagination.’ Immediately accessible to the general reader, the Tavistock lectures are a superb introduction to anyone coming to Jung’s psychology for the first time. A fascinating feature of the book is the inclsion of the questions posed to Jung at the end of each lecture. The questions, including those from leading psychoanalysts such as Wilfrid Bion, and the discussions that follow offer a superb example of a great thinker at the peak of their powers.

Item Description: AMSTERDAM UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2013. 356 pages. Samuel van Hoogstraten was not only one of Rembrandt's most successful pupils but also a versatile painter in his own right. His experiments in optical illusion also attracted the interest of the natural scientists of his time, and he wrote some of the first Dutch novels, plays, and a treatise on painting. This rich interdisciplinary study examines how van Hoogstraten understood the relationship between art, literature, and science and how these reflected the general views of his time. Bringing to the fore hitherto unknown works, the book is an important contribution to our understanding of van Hoogstraten's life and art. Bookseller Inventory # 978-90-8964-523-4

Six of the contributions focus on technological or historical aspects of specific artists' materials. These papers were presented at a conference held at the National Gallery to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The National Gallery Technical Bulletin which has a tradition of publishing interdisciplinary research which combines scientific investigation of the materials and techniques of paintings with knowledge of their historical context. Such research is therefore directed towards issues that inform art-historical study as well as questions that bear on the material history of a work. Bookseller Inventory # 978-1-904982-63-0

Item Description: ARCHETYPE PUBLICATIONS, 2013. 232 pages. The conservation profession has its roots in the intellectual movements of the first half of the 19th century, following the Enlightenment. Scholarly study of objects made available by important archeological excavations and discoveries gave birth to the first debates on theoretical issues of preservation. Also the political events which disrupted Europe in the first decades of the 19th century played a significant role in conservation practice. In particular, Napoleon’s appropriation of works of art. As much as early conservation treatments can create many problems for conservators today, in some cases, they did prolong the life of an object that might not exist today. In some of these treatments we can see the interest in scientific methods that comprise the foundation of current conservation treatments. Nineteenth century technical inventions brought about by the industrial revolution led to the mass production of many materials. These have had both a positive and negative influence on conservation.

Item Description: EDITIONS DE LA MARTINIERE, 2012. 260 pages. "Suivant la philosophie même du musée du quai Branly, connu également sous le nom de musée des Arts Premiers, à savoir "là où dialoguent les cultures", l'ouvrage se veut un miroir de l'échange incessant qui existe entre l'espace végétal extraordinairement foisonnant conçu par Gilles Clément, l'architecture particulière du bâtiment et le plateau des collections. En effet, l'architecte et le jardinier ont composé le jardin et le musée de telle sorte que l'un soit le prolongement de l'autre, dans un même rapport spatial. Plus original, les grandes expositions qui ont jalonné l'histoire du musée ("D'un regard l'autre", "Dogon", "Tarzan", "Les Maîtres du désordre" "seront également présentées. Les 3 chapitres permettent de traverser le musée dans toutes ses dimensions et d'évoquer tous les aspects qui en font l'unicité et la popularité en évitant de morceler ce qui est conçu, à la manière d'une toile universelle, comme un monde".

Item Description: OXBOW BOOKS, 2012. 330 pages. In this book the concept of mobility is explored for the archaeology of the Amazonian and Caribbean region. As a result of technological and methodological progress in archaeology, mobility has become increasingly visible on the level of the individual. However, as a concept it does not seem to fit with current approaches in Amazonian archaeology, which favour a move away from viewing small mobile groups as models for the deeper past. Instead of ignoring such ethnographic tyrannies, in this book they are considered to be essential for arriving at a different past. Viewing archaeological mobility as the sum of movements of both people and objects, the empirical part of Amotopoan Trails focuses on Amotopo, a small contemporary Trio village in the interior of Suriname. The movements of the Amotopoans are tracked and positioned in a century of Trio dynamics, ultimately yielding a recent archaeology of Surinamese-Trio movements for the Sipaliwini River basin (1907-2008). Alongside the construction of this archaeology, novel mobility concepts are introduced. They provide the conceptual footholds which enable the envisioning of mobility at various temporal scales, from a decade up to a century, the sequence of which has remained a blind spot in Caribbean and Amazonian archaeology.

Item Description: SKIRA, 2012. 496 pages. "La mostra attraverso quasi 200 opere provenienti da tutto il mondo - alcune mai viste in Italia - , ricostruisce per la prima volta il tessuto connettivo della Città eterna, in cui visse e operò il grande genio lombardo. La mostra prende in esame quello che può essere definito un momento cruciale della pittura italiana, che nasce negli ultimi anni del XVI secolo in una Roma ancora in crisi per il traumatico scisma luterano e si sviluppa, con sempre maggiore vigore, attraverso il regno di quattro importanti Pontefici: Clemente VIII Aldobrandini, Paolo V Borghese, Gregorio XIV Boncompagni, Urbano VIII Barberini. Questo irripetibile momento durò pochi anni, appena quaranta, dal 1595 al 1635 circa, ma dagli avvenimenti accaduti di questi anni è dipeso gran parte dello sviluppo delle correnti artistiche europee fino alla fine del XVII secolo. I primi anni sono segnati dal confronto serrato e diretto tra due giganti della pittura italiana: il bolognese Annibale Carracci, capo indiscusso della pittura classicista, e il lombardo Caravaggio, creatore di una nuova suggestiva rappresentazione della realtà, che non sembra inadeguato definire rivoluzionaria. Entrambi scomparvero a un anno esatto l'uno dall'altro: il 15 luglio 1609, Annibale; il 18 luglio 1610, Caravaggio. Nei due decenni successivi le stimolanti basi gettate dai due maestri furono raccolte e sviluppate sia da quanti seguirono il drammatico naturalismo di Caravaggio sia dai pittori classicisti bolognesi, che avevano seguito Annibale nella città papale. Le due correnti dominarono il panorama artistico romano del secondo decennio, e continuamente modificate e arricchite non solo da frequenti influssi e intrecci reciproci, ma anche con intensi scambi con i numerosi pittori toscani, emiliani, genovesi, lombardi e soprattutto stranieri (francesi, olandesi e spagnoli) presenti a Roma in quel periodo. Di cruciale interesse è l'esuberante schiera di artisti europei, attirati a Roma non solo dalle prestigiose committenze papali e da quelle delle grandi famiglie romane, che in quegli anni andavano formando le loro collezioni, ma anche dalla fama della nuova maniera caravaggesca che, con fulminea rapidità, in pochi anni, si era diffusa in tutta Europa. Lo studio di questo particolare fenomeno artistico - che può essere considerato il primo a carattere veramente europeo - non è stato ancora affrontato con sufficiente approfondimento e la presentazione in mostra di tanti dipinti tra loro coevi, costituisce una occasione unica per la piena comprensione di questo particolare momento creativo, tra i più stimolanti della storia della pittura, non solo italiana. Le opere prescelte per l'esposizione sono state selezionate in modo da dare il panorama più ampio possibile delle complesse vicende che caratterizzarono l'ambiente artistico romano all'inizio del '600. Per l'occasione è presente eccezionalmente in mostra per la prima volta in Italia il "Sant'Agostino", recentemente attribuito a Caravaggio e oggetto di un vivace dibattito: a questo dipinto sarà dedicata una giornata di studi, condotta in collaborazione con l'Università di Roma, che vedrà riuniti a confronto i protagonisti della querelle attributiva.".

Item Description: J. PAUL GETTY MUSEUM, 2008. Book Condition: AS NEW. COMO NUEVO. 384 pages. This volume presents the most noteworthy concepts, artists, and cultural centers of the seventeenth century through a close examination of many of its greatest paintings, sculptures, and buildings. The Baroque, rooted in classicism but with a new emphasis on emotionalism and naturalism, was the leading style of the seventeenth century. The movement exhibited both stylistic complexity and great diversity in its subject matter, from large religious works and history paintings to portraits, landscapes, and scenes of everyday life. Masters of the era included Caravaggio, whose innovations in the dramatic uses of light and shadow influenced many of the century's artists, notably Rembrandt; the sculptor, painter, and architect Bernini, with his combination of technical brilliance and expressiveness; and other familiar names such as Rubens, Poussin, Velázquez, and Vermeer. This was the era of absolute monarchs, including Spain's Habsburgs and Louis XIII and XIV of France, whose artistic patronage helped furnish their opulent palaces. But a new era of commercialism, in which artists increasingly catered to affluent collectors of the professional and merchant classes, also flourished. Bookseller Inventory # 978-0-89236-934-8
