Gus’s followers know what insightful and frankly charming pieces he writes, and we’re bringing those digital missives to the page and discerning masses. This is a collection of over 50 of Gus’s most-loved social media posts – covering everything from understanding house-breaking hadedas, the meaning of pathos, deciphering Joburg style, and everything in between.

A captivating account of the Parisian art world at the turn of the twentieth century, these memoirs offer firsthand impressions of Manet, Matisse, Picasso, Rousseau, Vuillard, and other famous artists. Art merchant and socialite Ambroise Vollard (1867-1939) possessed a keen ability to recognize genius in painters as well as a natural warmth and candor, a combination of traits that earned him the friendship of a generation of artists. "Recollections of a Picture Dealer recounts his early efforts to sell the works of Cezanne; his portrait sittings for Renoir, Rouault, Bonnard, Forain, and Picasso; and his social encounters with such artists as Degas, Odilon Redon, and Rodin, as well as with writers Gertrude Stein, Guillaume Apollinaire, Mallarme, and Zola. Unabridged republication of the original (1936) English-language edition, translated by Violet M. Macdonald. Index. 33 illustrations.

Where does my body begin? Where does it end? What is inside my body? What is outside? What is primary? What is secondary? What is natural? What is artificial? Science fiction has long imagined a future fusion of humanity with technology. Today, many of us-especially people with health issues such as autoimmune diseases-have functionally become hybrids connected to other machines and to other bodies. The combination of artificial intelligence with implants, transplants, prostheses, and genetic reprogramming is transforming medical research and treatment, and it is now also transforming what we thought was human nature. Mark C. Taylor identifies this process as "intervolution" and explores how it is weaving together smart things and smart bodies to create new forms of life. Our wired bodies are no longer freestanding individuals, but interconnected nodes in worldwide networks. Recognizing this transformation overturns deeply entrenched distinctions and oppositions between minds and bodies. Intervolution reveals that we are already cyborgs, integral cogs in what will become a superorganism of bodies and things.

The Terroir of Whiskey - A Distiller's Journey Into the Flavor of Place (Hardcover): Rob Arnold The Terroir of Whiskey - A Distiller's Journey Into the Flavor of Place (Hardcover)
Rob Arnold
R580 R545 Discovery Miles 5 450 Save R35 (6%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Turn over a bottle of wine and you may well see a reference to its terroir, the total local environment of the vineyard that grew the grapes, from its soil to the climate. Winemakers universally accept that where a grape is grown influences its chemistry, which changes the flavor of the wine. A detailed system has codified the idea that where the grapes are grown matters to the wine. But why don't we feel the same way about whiskey? The master distiller Rob Arnold reveals how innovative whiskey producers are recapturing a sense of place to create distinctive, nuanced flavors. He takes readers on a world tour of whiskey and the science of flavor, stopping along the way at distilleries in Kentucky, New York, Texas, Ireland, and Scotland. Arnold puts the spotlight on a new generation of distillers, plant breeders, and local farmers who are bringing back long-forgotten grain flavors and creating new ones in pursuit of terroir. In the twentieth century, we inadvertently bred distinctive tastes out of grains in favor of high agronomic yields-but today's artisans have teamed up to remove themselves from the commodity grain system, resurrect heirloom cereals, bring new varieties to life, and recapture the flavors of specific local ingredients. The Terroir of Whiskey makes the scientific and cultural cases that terroir is as important in whiskey as it is in wine.

The Russian Revolution and Civil War - as never seen before! Packed with jaw-dropping, at times blood-curdling images, Russia Accursed! showcases the reaction of Ivan Vladmirov (1869-1947) to the human suffering and Bolshevik barbarity he observed as an artist-reporter during the years 1917-25. Some of his paintings and watercolours appeared in magazines and periodicals, including London weekly The Graphic (Vladimirov's mother was English). But other scenes - featuring point-blank executions, passers-by cutting chunks of meat from a dead horse or dogs gnawing at a human corpse - were deemed too shocking for publication and had to be secretly exported from the USSR by American relief workers. Selected from private collections, Russian museums and the Hoover Library at Stanford University, California, most of the 160 Vladimirov images in this majestic 324-page volume are published here for the first time. Placed in their historic context by scholarly essays, contemporary photographs and eye-witness quotes, they revolutionize our understanding of the beginnings of the Soviet Union.
