The definitive final word on the world's greatest rock band, Led Zeppelin. Over ten years after WHEN GIANTS WALKED THE EARTH, Mick's seminal biography of the band, comes this major and extensively researched revision, which will provide an unflinching look at life inside one of the biggest-selling rock bands of all time, and present the definitive, final word on Led Zeppelin. They were 'the last great band of the sixties; the first great band of the seventies'; they rose, somewhat unpromisingly, from the ashes of the Yardbirds to become one of the biggest-selling rock bands of all time. Mick Wall, respected rock writer and former confidant of both Page and Plant, unflinchingly tells the story of the band that wrote the rulebook for on-the-road excess - and eventually paid the price for it, with disaster, drug addiction and death. WHEN GIANTS WALKED THE EARTH reveals for the first time the true extent of band leader Jimmy Page's longstanding interest in the occult, and goes behind the scenes to expose the truth behind their much-hyped yet spectacularly contrived comeback at London's O2 arena in 2007, and how Jimmy Page plans to bring the band back permanently - if only his former protege, now part-time nemesis, Robert Plant will allow him to. Wall also recounts, in a series of flashbacks, the life stories of the five individuals that made the dream of Led Zeppelin into an even more incredible and hard-to-swallow reality: Page, Plant, John Paul Jones, John Bonham, and their infamous manager, Peter Grant.

Argivale bronne in die Kunsargief van die Universiteit van Pretoria, die Argief van die Johannesburg Kunsmuseum en die Nasionale Argief van Suid-Afrika in Pretoria het grootliks bygedra tot die toevoeging van inligting oor hierdie kunstenaar wat nie voorheen bekend was nie. Dieplakboek van Gerda Oerder en n lang lesing met detailinligting oor Oerder se vroee lewe deur mev. Lorimer in die Kunsargief van die Universiteit van Pretoria het bygedra tot n nuwe vertolking van die lewe en werk van hierdie belangrike Suid-Afrikaanse kunstenaar. Tydens die Anglo-Boereoorlog was Oerder die enigste amptelike kunstenaar aan Boerekant, maar tot dusver is nog geen volledige geskiedenis van sy deelname aan die oorlog geskryf nie. In hierdie boek word Oerder se Anglo-Boereoorlogtekeninge nou vir die eerste keer so volledig moontlik afgedruk en beskryf.

April 1943. To mark a move by the Hungarian Club to new premises at 33 Pembridge Square, London W2, the emigre critic and publisher Charles Rosner organised a graphics show including work by 14 Hungarian-born artists living in Britain, all but one of whom were to be granted British citizenship. The 14 were: Joseph Bato, painter and art director; Klara Biller, illustrator; Val Biro, illustrator and author; George Buday, illustrator and organiser; Imre Goth, painter and inventor; Imre Hofbauer, illustrator and author; Peter Lambda, sculptor; Lili Markus, ceramist; George Mayer-Marton, painter and teacher; Henry Ripszam, painter and sculptor; Jean-Georges Simon, painter and teacher; Istvan Szegedi-Szuts, painter and author; Paul Vincze, medallist; Akos Zsoter, painter. All found haven of a sort in Britain, although George Buday, denied citizenship by MI5's false allegation of Communist sympathies, suffered a nervous breakdown when Moscow crushed the October 1956 uprising. To mark 75 years from the original show, and the centenary of Armistice Day, Robert Waterhouse followed the tracks of all 14 artists from Glasgow to Penzance via London, Vienna and Budapest, turning up archives, working through family collections and searching the vaults of public galleries. He came across long-lost images, unpublished diaries, memoirs and out-of-print titles which flesh out caricatures of exile, showing how each artist came to terms with British life, making a living and an individual mark. Seven of the 14 had fought as Austro-Hungarian conscripts in the First World War. Driven from their homeland by the punitive terms of the 1920 Treaty of Trianon, then pushed from Berlin, Prague and Vienna by the rise of the Third Reich, their arrival in London, where they were treated as enemy aliens, was anything but auspicious. Yet they survived. The anthology rediscovers a forgotten generation-and-a-half whose contribution to our national culture as Hungaro-Brits has clear messages for today's Hungary, questioning democratic institutions, and today's Britain, intent on cutting bonds with the Continent.

A Wall Street Journal bestseller An insider's account of Apple's creative process during the golden years of Steve Jobs. 'If you've ever wondered what it's like to work in a hotbed of innovation, you'll enjoy this inside view of life at Apple. Ken Kocienda pioneered the iPhone keyboard, and this book gives a play-by-play of their creative process -from generating ideas to doing a demo for Steve Jobs.' Adam Grant Hundreds of millions of people use Apple products every day; several thousand work on Apple's campus in Cupertino, California; but only a handful sit at the drawing board. Creative Selection recounts the life of one of the few who worked behind the scenes, a highly-respected software engineer who worked in the final years of the Steve Jobs era, the Golden Age of Apple. Ken Kocienda offers an inside look at Apple's creative process. For fifteen years, he was on the ground floor of the company as a specialist, directly responsible for experimenting with novel user interface concepts and writing powerful, easy-to-use software for products including the iPhone, the iPad and the Safari web browser. His stories explain the symbiotic relationship between software and product development for those who have never dreamed of programming a computer, and reveal what it was like to work on the cutting edge of technology at one of the world's most admired companies. Kocienda shares moments of struggle and success, crisis and collaboration, illuminating each with lessons learned over his Apple career. He introduces the essential elements of innovation, inspiration, collaboration, craft, diligence, decisiveness, taste, and empathy, and uses these as a lens through which to understand productive work culture. An insider's tale of creativity and innovation at Apple, Creative Selection shows readers how a small group of people developed an evolutionary design model, and how they used this methodology to make groundbreaking and intuitive software which countless millions use every day.

'A masterpiece ... a moving image of post-war Poland, and the first breathing of one of the essential voices of the twentieth century... the master of literary reportage' The Times Literary Supplement When the great traveller-reporter Ryszard Kapuscinski was a young journalist in the early 1960s, he was sent to write about the farthest reaches of his native Poland. The resulting essays brought together here reveal a place as strange as any of the distant lands he visited on foreign assignments: caught between ties to the past and dreams of escape, a country on the edge of modernity. 'Kapuscinski trascends the limitations of journalism and writes with the narrative power of a Conrad or Kipling or Orwell' Blake Morrison
