The Golden Age of Czech Spas / Tschechis - Pavel Scheufler

The world of spas at the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when the emperor, the aristocracy and famous visitors from all over Europe would take the waters, is long gone.

This country's many smaller and lesser-known spas offered seclusion and relaxation, while the beautiful promenades, cafés and casinos of Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázně and Františkovy Lázně offered entertainment, convivia...

The Other Slovakia - Andrej Bán

Working as a journalist, I have come to understand that what goes on behind the scenes is very often more interesting than the “main stage” of events. I mean the involuntary gestures, the ambiguous situations perhaps hard to understand, which I am convinced reveal at certain moments something spontaneous and inimitable. What interests me most is authentic life, the rituals and customs of ordinary people who seem to be living “against the flow of time”. I am intimately acquainted with Slovakia, ...

The authors of this book address the topic of image in conjunction with the topic of narrative.

Art Masters: Basquiat

The dazzling, provocative work of Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) would come to define the vibrant New York art scene of the late '70s and early '80s. Punk, jazz, graffiti, hip-hop: his work drew heavily on the cultural trappings of lower Manhattan, to which he fled-from Brooklyn-at the age of 15.
