Hollywood in the 30s
Author: Daniel Kothenschulte, Robert Nippoldt
In the 1930s, the legendary City of Cinema moved from the silent era to the talking picture. It was a decade of pomp and excess in the motion picture capital, of glorious stardom and megalomaniac directors; a time when politicians and the mob all wanted a piece of the thrilling action. Illustrator Robert Nippoldt and film critic Daniel Kothenschulte have teamed up to pay homage to this remarkable era, sharing amusing stories and anecdotes about the glamour and grit of Tinseltown. It was Hollywood's golden prewar era, and Nippoldt's illustrations bring it back to life.

A resource book covering the finest walks, treks and climbs in the High Pyrenees for 400km between France and Spain, from the Cirque de Lescun, on the edge of the Basque country in the west, to the Carlit massif and the Cerdagne to the east of Andorra. The book is divided into five regional chapters: the Western Valleys; Cirques and Canyons; the Central Pyrenees; Enchanted Mountains; and Andorra and the Eastern High Pyrenees. Intended as a resource book for those planning a range of mountain activities in the Pyrenees, the guide describes each area valley by valley, and provides information on access and accommodation, as well as recommended maps and guidebooks. Unlike a conventional walking book, detailed route descriptions are not included; the guide does, however, direct the reader to the finest walks, treks and climbs in the area and provide an outline of specially selected routes. An extensive introduction gives all the practical advice and information needed for planning a trip. It offers a background to the mountains and their exploration, and provides a snapshot of the range with sections that help the reader focus on specific areas of activity, and suggests where best to exercise that activity.

Author: Dan Franck
Dan Franck's book covers the first thirty years of the twentieth century, when Montmartre and Montparnasse were filled with glorious subversives who were inventing modern art and the literary language of the century: Picasso the gentle anarchist, Apollinaire the eroticist, Modigliani and his women, Max Jacob and his men, the fiery Aragon, the solitary Soutine, Man Ray, Gertrude Stein, Henri Matisse, Andre Breton and many others. They came from many different countries.They were painters, poets, sculptors, musicians, and began seminal movements such as fauvism, cubism and surrealism. Their lives were as flamboyant as their work; they were hedonists, believed in free love and broke all the rules of conventional Parisian society. They were and always will be the heroes of the Bohemian period: a magnificent era whose influences and movements still reverberate at the turn of the twenty-first century.
