From the palaces of Fez to the riads, or courtyard dwellings, of Marrakesh, from the trading posts of Essaouira to the Kasbahs of the south, this book seeks out the most singular living spaces in Morocco, a country blessed with one of the richest architectural heritages in North Africa. Some of these spaces bear witness to hispano-Moorish splendours, others are vibrant with the influence of the Sahara, but all of them are temples of the art of living. Corinner Verner explores the archetypes of the Moroccan built environment in over 200 glorious colour photographs, interspersed with numerous essays exploring a number of related topics, from the decorative arts of Morocco, the concept of the garden as 'metaphors for paradise' to contemporary fashions and developments.

Winner of the 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award, Autobiography Swimming Studies is a brilliantly original, meditative memoir that explores the worlds of competitive and recreational swimming. From her training for the Olympic trials as a teenager to enjoying pools and beaches around the world as an adult, Leanne Shapton offers a fascinating glimpse into the private, often solitary, realm of swimming. Her spare and elegant writing reveals an intimate narrative of suburban adolescence, spent underwater in a discipline that continues to inspire Shapton’s work as an artist and author. Her illustrations throughout the book offer an intuitive perspective on the landscapes and imagery of the sport. Shapton’s emphasis is on the smaller moments of athletic pursuit rather than its triumphs. For the accomplished athlete, aspiring amateur, or habitual practicer, this remarkable work of written and visual sketches propels the reader through a beautifully personal and universally appealing exercise in reflection.

Während zehn Jahren haben sie auf ihren abenteuerlichen Reisen in ferne Länder eine Fülle von einheimischen Rezepten aus dem Nahen Osten und Afrika, Indien, Nepal und Sri Lanka, Südostasien und China sowie Amerika gesammelt, die sie in diesem besonderen, geografisch in vier Teile unterteilten, Kochbuch veröffentlichen.
