Many have tried to convey the true spirit of Africa’s animals in words, photography, or in music. There may be no challenge greater; Africa’s fauna are vast in number and rich in diversity. In this finely crafted collection, French photographer Laurent Baheux uses the medium of black-and-white photography to capture the intricate details of both the wondrous beasts and the magnificent settings in which they dwell. This wide-ranging volume lays particular emphasis on his subjects’ individual spirits—revealing all of their vulnerability while losing nothing of their raw vitality. Every photograph is so carefully composed and well lit that the details equal the evocative precision of an Old Masters portrait. Through Baheux’s eyes we get close to creatures that will both inspire and humble us all.

Favorite Juxtapoz artists fill the pages of Juxtapoz Wild with portrayals of beasts great and small. No spotted elephants or pink balloon poodles. Banish any thoughts of grapes and dead game on a platter. These paintings evoke the full range of Mother Earth's creatures as they both murmur and roar amongst the foggy haze and moss-covered reaches of her landscapes. 28 artists including Sage Vaughn, Josh Keyes, Laura Ball, Martin Wittfooth, Andreco, and Cathie Bleck give shape, vibrant color, and shades of meaning to the most humble or humbling creatures. Wild is a book to enjoy and study as it depicts the furry and feathered beauty made ever more fragile in our changing world.

Todays couples no longer feel constrained by traditional expectations of what a wedding should be. More and more they feel free to adapt customs at will to better create a celebration that reflects their own personal values and tastes. While some may still opt for a traditional multi-tiered cake, others employ multiple cakes or even cupcakes to satisfy sweet tooth expectations. Food is no longer provided solely by established caterers, but can even come from local eateries or food trucks. Likewise, invitations, signs and place cards are now produced in a variety of ways from utilizing traditional printers, a letterpress or even hand lettering. From floral arrangements to lighting design and table presentation, no stone is left unturned. Whether modern or rustic, or a combination of the two, the variations brought upon by individual choice lead to an incredible selection of creative and highly festive occasions.

The highly individual cabins, hideaways, and summer homes featured in Hide and Seek offer their owners exceptional, yet convenient ways to escape urban routines and embed themselves into the land. These imaginative structures meld traditional architecture with modern living in fascinating and surprising ways. Whether located in the forest, on the water, or in the mountains; whether light and minimalistic or dark and cozy, the compelling dwellings exemplify how to create remote shelters that bring calm and balance to our hectic lives. With the right concept, furniture, décor, and atmosphere, even small or basic designs become stunning sanctuaries. Hide and Seek is a contemporary survey of contextual architecture and interior design that channels our shared desire for peace and quiet. These projects not only have the power to get people in touch with their surroundings, but also with themselves.

Mobility is the ultimate new form of freedom: freedom from routine, traditional values, and geographic restraints. Today's creatives thrive on a lifestyle that enables them to work six months in a shared office in Berlin, spend the summer in a caravan in Chile, and show up in time for their next project at a temporary desk in New York. This growing trend has generated visionary ways of designing products and spaces that facilitate a nomadic yet high-tech life. From a modular dwelling system on wheels to an inflatable classroom in a repurposed dumpster, this book compiles a wide range of flexible spaces and innovative products that define today's nomads. Through innovative technology, and by (literally) thinking outside the box, the designers behind these concepts give people the freedom to call the entire world their home.

The book aims to demonstrate a methodology to achieve a green and cheap architecture using containers. Shipping containers were designed to provide an economically viable way to store and transport goods over long distances in watertight conditions. Their dimensions were internationally standardized, particularly in terms of height and the shape of the enclosure itself. These standardized dimensions as well as being economic and secure also happen to be almost perfect in terms of human scale, meaning they are entirely appropriate for designing habitable spaces. Green Container Architecture 3 features four advanced container projects designed by renowned architect and expert on sustainability, Luis de Garrido, that are analyzed in depth.

The spaces children occupy in the home are not only play areas, but rather something much more complex, they are their kingdoms. It is where the major part of their leisure, rest and study time is spent. From there, is the importance of instilling in them at a very young age to appreciate the value of sustainable products. Our objective that we propose in this book, Eco Kids Design, is to claim the childhood as a life stage, games and lots of happiness, because it's important to make he design arousing their creative side enjoyable. All of the products shown in the book are geared and manufactured with ecological friendly materials that do not harm the environment and perfectly adapt to the needs of the little ones at home.

With 2015 being the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain – arguably the Hawker Hurricane’s ‘finest hour’ – it is appropriate to tell the story of the surviving Hurricanes from around the world. Building on research originally started thirty years ago, the author has delved into the archives to amass new information – and in the process managed to identify positively one particular Hurricane which had proved elusive for more than forty years.
