   Судьбы кошки и человека переплелись давным-давно. Люди поклонялись кошкам как божествам и испытывали суеверный страх при виде светящихся во тьме кошачьих глаз, просили помощи в защите от грызунов и обожали как самых близких друзей. А художники и скульпторы не могли не восхищаться кошачьей грацией, которую они считали совершенной. В этом небольшом альбоме представлены «Кошачьи» экспонаты Эрмитажа: в древнеегипетской бронзе, европейской средневековой живописи, китайской и японской графике, русском лубке XVIII—XX веков в виде нэцкэ, игрушек и много другого. Издание на английском языке.

A GAME OF THRONES has been adapted into a hit HBO original series. George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy. Labelled by Time magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world, Martin has conjured a world as complex and vibrant as that of J.R.R. Tolkien's, populated by a huge cast of fascinating, complex characters, and boasting a history that stretches back twelve thousand years.

The HBO adaption of A Game of Thrones is currently airing worldwide and has already proved so popular that a second season has been commissioned.
 
Yamamoto and Yohji Yamamoto and Yohji
Автор: Жанр: Книги на иностранных языках Издательство: Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) Год: 2014 Страниц: 428 Дата загрузки: 17 августа 2016
   The definitive monograph on the complete work of Yohji Yamamoto — one of fashion's most transformative designers working today and widely acknowledged as a master of postwar fashion design. Since the early '80s, Yohji Yamamoto's groundbreaking silhouettes and innovative design aesthetic have propelled him to the highest rank of the international avant-garde. Distinguished by his antifashion approach, Yamamoto changed the face of contemporary fashion, radically transforming it with asymmetrical and highly conceptual designs partly inspired by the techniques of traditional Japanese kimonos. His vision came as a refreshing contrast to the power suits and brightly clad fashions of the time, forcing a reconsideration of the future direction of fashion. Yamamoto launched his first collection in 1977 in Tokyo and followed this success with the debut of his experimental and critically celebrated Yohji Yamamoto label in Paris in 1981. This luxuriously bound book explores all the major themes in his thirty years of counter-fashion design. Illustrated with photographs by Craig McDean, Inez & Vinoodh, Max Vadukul and Nick Knight, each chapter elaborates on a particular theme — his sartorial philosophy, influential extensions into scenography, runway shows, monographic exhibitions, and costume design — and is anchored by an essay or interview that lends crucial insight to the story of Yohji Yamamoto, one of the most enigmatic and iconoclastic fashion designers of our time.
 
Wine with Food: Pairing Notes and Recipes from the New York Times Wine with Food: Pairing Notes and Recipes from the New York Times
Автор: Жанр: Книги на иностранных языках Издательство: Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) Год: 2014 Страниц: 256 Дата загрузки: 28 марта 2017
   100 wines paired with more than 100 dishes, from two of the most respected experts in the business. Pairing wine and food can bring out the best qualities in each. But how do you hit upon the right combination? And is there just one? Do you fall back on the old rules or decide by cuisine or season? The choices can be perplexing, and fashions are constantly changing. Eric Asimov and Florence Fabricant have spent much of their careers enjoying this most delicious dilemma and now give readers the tools they need to play the game of wine and food to their own tastes. In this book, they sum up some of their most useful findings. Instead of a rigid system, Wine with Food offers guiding information to instill confidence so you can make your own choices. The goal is to break the mold of traditional pairing models and open up new possibilities. Asimov focuses on wines of distinction and highlights certain producers to look for. Fabricant offers dishes covering every course and drawing from diverse global influences-Clams with Chorizo, Autumn Panzanella, Duck Fried Rice, Coq au Vin Blanc, Short Ribs with Squash and Shiitakes. Sidebars explore issues related to the entire experience at the table-such as combining sweet with savory, the right kind of glass, and decanting. Wine with Food is both an inspiring collection of recipes and a concise guide to wine.
 
Vintage Industrial: Living With Design Icons Vintage Industrial: Living With Design Icons
Автор: Жанр: Книги на иностранных языках Издательство: Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) Год: 2014 Страниц: 224 Дата загрузки: 12 сентября 2019
   An exquisitely illustrated celebration of this influential style that is now at the forefront of interior design. Vintage Industrial covers the period from 1900 to 1950, which produced the raw, functional aesthetic that has become a cornerstone of modern design. The advent of the second industrial revolution created the need for a new kind of furniture to satisfy the demands of a rapidly growing workforce. Chairs, tables, lamps, and modular storage were designed from new materials to be mass-produced, stackable, and adjustable to the developing needs of brand-new industries that in turn were manufacturing the products that would define a changing society. These pieces, that inform a reclaimed style, are now highly popular among collectors and interior designers. This volume celebrates the engineers who shaped the industrial aesthetic as the unsung heroes of modern design and showcases their creations. By discovering ways to work iron and steel into functional forms, luminaries such as Bernard-Albin Gras, George Carwardine, Jean Prouve, and Edouard-Wilfred Buquet sparked a revolution in the way we think about our built environment. Five chapters — on lighting, seating, tables, storage, and curiosities — describe the major innovations and designs from the period and include stunning photography depicting these objects in homes, workshops, factories, and warehouses. Meticulously curated, this elegant book is an informative style guide and source of inspiration for how to live with industrial design.

   Celebrating the ultimate masterpieces of modernist design, from the Arts and Crafts movement up to the twenty-first century, Total Design offers an intimate tour of houses conceived as complete works of art.

   A fascinating survey of Jewish art and history from one of the most comprehensive Jewish collections. The Jewish World represents an overview of Jewish art that spans the multiple dimensions of Jewish life across the globe. Through beautiful photographs and insightful texts, this richly illustrated book brings to light masterpieces of Judaica and craftsmanship — from classical paintings to lush illuminations, from intricate silverwork to modernist sculpture — from The Magnes Collection, one of the world's largest and most preeminent collections of Jewish ceremonial, modern, and contemporary art, music, rare books, and manuscripts.

The Magnes's sparkling new quarters, in a 25,000-square-foot building near the University of California, Berkeley, campus, make this important resource accessible as never before.
 
Simplicity Simplicity
Автор: Жанр: Книги на иностранных языках Издательство: Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) Год: 2014 Страниц: 296 Дата загрузки: 24 июля 2015
   Interior designer Nancy Braithwaite's long-awaited first book is a striking tutorial in the power of simplicity in design. In the world of interior design, Nancy Braithwaite is known for her single-minded devotion to the principle that has guided her work for more than forty years: simplicity. Braithwaite's work is luxuriously minimalist, its beauty inextricably tied to its Shaker-like purity. While her work varies from art deco to country, the underlying rules remain the same: every element should strive to be simple and powerful without compromise, and every room must have a level of power that comes from commanding scale, repetition of elements, subtleties of color, or the sheer beauty of forms. In Braithwaite's world, excess is not opulent. Simplicity is opulent. Braithwaite takes the reader deep into her singular vision. Divided into five sections, the book begins with her manifesto on simplicity and the aspects of design used to achieve it, including architecture, scale, color, texture, pattern, and composition. She then presents three categories of style--country, classic, and contemporary — and explains and illustrates each with iconic rooms from her portfolio. Finally, she presents several houses as case studies, displaying the power of these principles in action and emphasizing the importance of craftsmanship in design, from a stunning modern seaside retreat on Kiawah Island, South Carolina, to her unforgettable country house in Atlanta.
 
Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude
Автор: Жанр: Книги на иностранных языках Издательство: Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) Год: 2014 Страниц: 224 Дата загрузки: 12 сентября 2019
   An irreverent cookbook filled with inventive recipes for baking that deliver a punch. Libbie Summers is not your run-of-the-mill cook. Growing up, she was the kind of child who dunked her potato chips into chocolate syrup to see if it might taste good (it does). That insatiable curiosity-and sweet tooth-is what fuels this book. Sweet and Vicious is all about exploring new taste sensations in the realm of baking. It is a no-holds-barred approach to baking outside the box with crazy-brilliant combinations. Savory and spicy flavors come into play often, such as in Habanero Carrot Cake, Fig and Pig Pie, and Mojito Cookies. Other times, the innovation comes in the form of a cooking method or serving presentation borrowed from another side of the kitchen, as with Meatball Muffins or Grilled Apricot Polenta Cake. There is also a healthy dose of humor sprinkled around, with recipes such as Gingerbread Working Girls, Preggers Pink Pickle Pie, and Salvation Cinnamon Rolls. Essential to her philosophy is that sweets are supposed to be over-the-top, and that there is no point in firing up the oven if you are not making something so good it hurts. Sweet and Vicious brings a sense of adventure into the kitchen and some fun into desserts. Isn't that the whole point of dessert, after all?
 
Jeremy Scott Jeremy Scott
Автор: Жанр: Книги на иностранных языках Издательство: Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) Год: 2014 Страниц: 272 Дата загрузки: 14 апреля 2018
   The definitive monograph on Jeremy Scott, one of the most creative and influential American designers working in fashion today. Jeremy Scott is an American designer whose sensibility has brought elements of humor, rebellion, and fantasy to the elevated culture of couture — from his earliest collections in Paris to the outrageous runway shows in recent years that led the New York Times to call him fashion's last rebel. Creative, original, and iconic, Scott is the voice of his generation, his work a colorful marriage of the ubiquity of cultural reference with the refinement of high fashion. Since the late 1990s — when he twice won the Venus de la Mode Award for Best New Designer — Scott has retained his bright and extravagant style while honing his vision to take each collection in a new and startling direction. Referred to by Karl Lagerfeld as the only designer worthy of taking over at Chanel, Scott also dresses the icons of pop, from Madonna to Rihanna, and alongside his eponymous collections he is creative director of Moschino and designs streetwear for Adidas. This book reflects all the style of Jeremy Scott's world, from snapshots of fittings in his studio to Polaroids taken backstage at shows and editorial work from Inez and Vinoodh, Steven Meisel, Ellen von Unwerth, and Terry Richardson, among others. With an introduction by Jeffrey Deitch, this is a lavish survey of one of today's most iconic designers.

Автор: Жанр: Книги на иностранных языках Издательство: Rizzoli (RCS MediaGroup) Год: 2014 Страниц: 288 Дата загрузки: 15 июня 2016
   The first book on the work of a designer whose refined classical interiors are widely desired and emulated as the epitome of French style. Honored as one of the top designers by all the international design magazines and universally admired by design editors, Jean-Louis Deniot is in demand. His updated classical approach now graces interiors in Paris, the French countryside, Moscow, India, New York, Chicago, L.A., and beyond — and his legacy is already being compared to that of design greats such as Jacques Grange and Alberto Pinto. Deniot is an architect first, ensuring that the interior architecture of his rooms is harmonious before giving a neoclassical approach to the decor. He brings education, logic, and design history to his work, with one eye looking at the most refined style of French eighteenth century and one eye on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His mix is highly individual and includes contemporary art and custom-made furniture, yet his rooms always look comfortable and are never overly formal or trendy. This book demonstrates a new, sophisticated classical style that is changing the scene for international design and offering inspiration and ideas to decorators, homeowners, and antiques enthusiasts.
