At the age of nine, Jamie was told by doctors that he would never walk again. Twenty years later, he set off to run 5,000 miles coast to coast across Canada. When Jamie decides to repay the hospitals that saved his life as a child, he embarks on the biggest challenge of his life: running the equivalent of 200 marathons back-to-back, solo and unsupported, in –40 degree weather, surviving all kinds of injuries and traumas on the road and wearing through 13 pairs of trainers. And he does it all dressed as the superhero, the Flash. Though his journey was both mentally and physically exhausting, it was the astounding acts of kindness and hospitality he encountered along the way that kept him going. Whether they gave him a bed for the night, food for the journey, a donation to his charity or companionship and encouragement during the long days of running, Jamie soon came to realise that every person who helped him towards his goal was a superhero too.

A perceptive and very personal portrait of Mallorca—Michael Poliza’s unique photographs and thoughtful selection of motifs makes this so much more than a conventional travel guide The island’s stunning variety of landscapes are captured in a single photo book Wherever you live, no matter the season, Poliza’s photos will make you long for sunshine and the sea   Rich with promise: one of teNeues’s most successful and revered artists uncovers an inimitable tourist destination for international travelers. Nature photographer Michael Poliza has already published nearly a dozen books—­including bestsellers like Africa, Eyes Over Africa, and AntArctic—and as an organizer of high-end nature adventure treks, he has a particularly keen sense for unique locations. For his latest tome, he focused on a place of legendary beauty that brims unexpected surprises: ­Mallorca. It’s no wonder that Mallorca has certain qualities in common with tapas, the island’s culinary specialty. The great thing about tapas is that you don’t have to make a meal out of just one ingredient; you can taste a bit of this and have a nibble of that and enjoy a broad spectrum of flavors. And that is the perfect way to describe the vacation mecca of Mallorca, which boasts an attractive mix of old and modern architecture, lively beaches and secluded bays, and the vibrant city of ­Palma and quaint mountain villages. On the ground or from the air, Michael Poliza paints an intimate picture of Mallorca and its most exciting locales—the salt mounds of Es Trenc, Cala sa Nau, the Cap de Formentor lighthouse, and the serpentine road to Sa Calobra—and fulfills his promise magnificently.

New York is probably the most photographed city in the world. It is hard to resist the fascination for the Big Apple, and many have tried to visually capture the singularly unique “Empire State of Mind.” It’s not just the classic landmarks that belong to an emotional portrait of the metropolis, but also the bustling life in the urban canyons of Manhattan and its neighborhoods. And this is why Bernhard Hartmann never approaches New York City from just one perspective. He employs multiple angles: brilliant studies that make the sculptural details of architectural icons, both old and new, come alive, alongside snapshots of ephemeral, shadowy pedestrians hurrying by on rain-soaked asphalt illuminated by neon sign reflections. Hartmann is especially taken with the city’s lights, as his black-and-white photos twinkle in an almost magical way. His color photographs possess a near-hypnotic quality that make the nighttime neon-lit streets feel like an homage to decades past, and his aerial photos almost tangibly pull you into the scene. Despite the technical refinement and exquisite detail of Hartmann’s photos, their unequalled atmospheric intensity is what truly makes them special: he combines the latest photographic techniques with the glamour of historic pictures. The result is a dazzling, contemporary portrait of the most amazing city in the world, one that—like your own first visit to New York—you will never forget.
