By the 1980’s skateboarding had reached all corners of the USA and was becoming popular worldwide with kids adopting the culture as their own and taking over public spaces to practice the sport. Over the following pages we will show the work of 44 artists, displaying the evolution of the skateboard with a whole range of designs, colours and shapes.

ollage art is a lot more than just cutting and pasting, it’s a refined technique which shows a peculiar vision of the world, it’s a true creative tool. “Collage Makers” took us closer to the spacious world of collage and its different artists. Now we expand this marvellous world with “Collage Makers II”. Artists like Ernesto Artillo, Lola Dupré, Damien Blottiere, Pablo Thecuadro, Rocío Montoya… show us their techniques and explain to us the way they normally work in their exclusive and unrepeatable creations due to the raw materials used, magazines, pieces of wood, photographs, news papers, everyday objects, etc.

Frida Kahlo is the most famous Latin-American painter of the 20th century and a fundamental figure in Mexican art. She met Pablo Picasso and André Bretón; she was a friend of Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky and of poet Pablo Neruda. She received at her home writers, artists, film directors, doctors, politicians, photographers... Diego Rivera, the most recognised artist of Mexican mural art and Frida´s husband, described her in this manner: “Your genius is in the painting and in your image. Decidedly, there is no other living painter that can do what you do. You have laid (Te has echado al pico) with the whole painter race”.

Whether it's diving off a cliff, cross-country skiing in Antarctica, or free climbing the Picos de Europe in Northern Spain, women in extreme sports are proving every bit as strong, determined and ambitious as their male peers. As in her extremely popular previous books, Surf Like a Girl and Skate Like a Girl, Carolina Amell has compiled spectacular photography that evokes the thrill and beauty of female nontraditional sports in every corner of the world. There's Lynn Jung tackling a parkour course with exquisite grace; Anna von Boetticher skimming the ocean floor hundreds of feet below the surface; Heather Larsen slacklining across a canyon wall; Ashley Fiolek, the world's only deaf professional motocross racer, kicking up dirt on her BMX bike; and other female wakeboarders, Pro-Base jumpers, aerobatic pilots, wingsuit pilots, and, ironically, Ironman champions. Each of the athletes contributes her own motivating words of encouragement that will inspire girls of every age and from every culture to chase their dreams, shatter every glass ceiling, kick down the men's clubhouse door-and have fun doing it all.
