From a single white cloud floating in a clear sky to a wrinkled linen shirt drying in the sun to shores dotted with throngs of buildings like pebbles washed in from the sea, Abranowicz's work elevates simple everyday objects to objects of austere beauty. These photographs capture the many facets of the Greek islands: their serenity, exceptional light, and arresting art and architecture.: New in original shrink wrap.. Hard Cover. New/New.

Description:
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2003 'Her mouth was like the bloom of a rose, when the rose begins to part the lips of its petals. As soon as I saw, I was done for.All my dreams were of Leucippe.' Achilles Tatius' Leucippe and Clitophon is the most bizarre and risque of the five 'Greek novels' of idealized love between boy and girl that survive from the period of the Roman empire. Stretching the capacity of the genre to its limits, Achilles' narrative covers adultery, violence, evisceration, pederasty, virginity-testing, and (of course) an improbable happy ending. Ingenious and sophisticated in conception, Leucippe and Clitophon is in execution at once subtle, stylish, moving, brash, tasteless, and obscene. This new translation aims to capture Achilles' writing in all its exuberant variety. A new translation by Tim Whitmarsh. Introduction by Helen Morales (Introduction byHelen Morales. 164p.. Softcover.

And the walls where the Trojan women watched their warriors in battle with the invader. It will stir your blood, Sophia. " Sophia Chrysanthis is in her twenties when the celebrated German archaeologist Herr Obermann seeks her out; comes wooing: he wants a Greek bride who knows her Homer. Sophia passes his test, and soon she is tying canvas sacking to her legs, so that she can kneel on the hard ground in the trench, removing the earth methodically, identifying salient points, lifting out amphorae and bronze vessels without damaging them. "Archaeology is not a science, " Obermann says. "It is an art. " Obermann is very good at the art of archaeology-perhaps too good. Obsessive and intuitive, he is a romantic visionary". 1st UK Edition.. Hard Cover. New/New.

Toronto: Firefly Books, 1999 Adam goes far beyond container gardening on apartment building fire escapes in this fine primer, successfully addressing a wide range of specific concerns for the urban gardener. Leaving no stone unturned, she assesses everything from overcoming the limitations of a city site to improving and amending neglected soil and selecting appropriately sized perennials, shrubs and trees; she also suggests using vines to camouflage ugly fences, walls and vistas. Her practical, straightforward style is enlivened by a keen wit and such horticultural bon mots as "concealment is sometimes the better part of gardening valor" and "like the course of true love, a good path seldom runs straight." In addition to thoroughly covering the basics of planning, planting and maintenance, Adam shares creative tips on making the most of awkward sites and expanding gardening opportunities by reclaiming and redesigning unused space, from side alleys and parking strips to land… Read more
