V roce 2012 se součástí Nakladatelství Slovart stalo nakladatelství Brio. Nakladatelství Brio vydávalo ve spolupráci s předními spisovateli a výtvarníky nádherně ilustrované originální příběhy a sbírky pohádek pro děti od šesti do dvanácti let. Pro starší děti, mládež a dospělé Brio nabízelo sebrané spisy pohádek a bajek od renomovaných spisovatelů, doplněné o to nejlepší z klasické literatury celého světa. V této tradici pokračujeme také my v rámci stejnojmenné edice.

The quest to affirm Americans’ need for alcohol and tobacco is a tale of 100 years of advertising intended to seduce consumers to partake in these delicious vices. This catalogue of ads showcases the extensive and abundant campaigns and trends of drinking and smoking in the United States that, for better or worse, explore a vibrant chapter of advertising history.

Vices or virtues: drinking and smoking provided marketers with products to be forged into visual feasts. In this lush compendium of advertisements, we explore how depictions of these commodities spanned from the elegant to the offbeat, revealing how manufacturers prodded their customers throughout the 20th century to imbibe and inhale.

Each era’s alcohol and tobacco trends are exuberantly captured page after page, with brand images woven into American popular culture so effectively that almost anyone could identify such icons as the Marlboro Man or Spuds MacKenzie, figures so familiar they could appear in ads without the product itself. Other advertisers devised clever and subliminal approaches to selling their wares, as the wildly successful Absolut campaign confirmed. Even doctors contributed to a perverse version of propaganda, testifying that smoking could calm your nerves and soothe your throat, while hailing liquor as an elixir capable of bringing social success.

Whether you savor these visual delights, or enjoy inhaling and wallowing in forbidden pleasures, you will certainly be thrilled by this exploration of a decidedly vibrant—and sometimes controversial—chapter of advertising history.

2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the House of Dior. It was in 1947 that Christian Dior presented his first collection and heralded the birth of a new fashion silhouette for women. After the austerity of the war years, the cinched waistlines, full skirts and soft shoulders of the New Look came to embody a revival of Parisian luxury. Paris regained its place as the global capital of fashion and the name of Dior became a synonym for haute couture.

For this book, seventy of the most memorable looks created Christian Dior and his successors – Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri – have been specially selected and photographed in fascinating detail. These wonderful designs are also featured in sketches, runway shots and fashion shoots by the world’s greatest fashion photographers, including Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, William Klein, Helmut Newton, Patrick Demarchelier, Paolo Roversi, Peter Lindbergh, Mario Testino and Nick Knight.

Recurring themes from the history of Dior are discussed in depth: the concept of line and architecture in fashion; the influence of history and art (the Palace of Versailles, the Empire style, Impressionism, the Belle Époque, the Ballets Russes, Picasso, Dalí, Pollock); the use of colour; the influence of gardens and landscapes as sources of inspiration; and, of course, the brand’s muses and famous clients: the Duchess of Windsor, Marlene Dietrich, Princess Grace of Monaco, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Isabelle Adjani, Princess Diana, Marion Cotillard, Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence and more.

The charming world of Miss Maggie’s Kitchen brings a mixture of refined classic French style with a modern twist, for perfect, effortless entertaining.

Heloïse Brion’s early life was rhythmed by mealtimes―from her childhood in Florida, where her mother proudly upheld the tradition of the French family dinner, to summers spent in the Pyrenees where her grandmother cooked over a wood-fire oven. Her passion for food―always respectful of the seasons and the origins of her products―followed her back to France where she pursed a career in fashion.

What initially began as a whimsical pastime turned into Miss Maggie’s Kitchen, her brand that blends cooking, travel, and lifestyle in a perfect alchemy. Her innate talent for style and entertaining stems from her informal American approach to life mixed with her inherent French flair. Here, Brion shares more than eighty laid-back recipes for every occasion, including her beautiful table settings that are festive and welcoming. Her simple, authentic, and tasty cuisine includes sweet potato crostini, summer tomato pizza, veal stew, pistachio and clementine cake, and lavender lemonade. Brion’s husband, photographer Christophe Roué, captures the charm of Miss Maggie’s Kitchen where retro and modern culminate in the ultimate comfortable elegance.

Cultural timelines are there too, to help to the reader with historical context.

Masterpieces that epitomize each period or movement are highlighted and analysed in detail. Everything from use of colour and visual metaphors to technical innovations is explained, enabling you to interpret the meanings of world-famous masterpieces – Mughal miniatures; Japanese prints in the 19th century; the colour theories behind Seurat’s remarkable La Grande Jatte; and why Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon was so shocking in its day.

From the #1 best-selling author of The Alchemist comes an inspiring story about a young man seeking wisdom from an elder, and the practical lessons imparted along the way. Includes stunning illustrations by Christoph Niemann.

“A novelist who writes in a universal language.” —The New York Times


In The Archer we meet Tetsuya, a man once famous for his prodigious gift with a bow and arrow but who has since retired from public life, and the boy who comes searching for him. The boy has many questions, and in answering them Tetsuya illustrates the way of the bow and the tenets of a meaningful life. Paulo Coelho's story suggests that living without a connection between action and soul cannot fulfill, that a life constricted by fear of rejection or failure is not a life worth living. Instead one must take risks, build courage, and embrace the unexpected journey fate has to offer.

With the wisdom, generosity, simplicity, and grace that have made him an international best seller, Paulo Coelho provides the framework for a rewarding life: hard work, passion, purpose, thoughtfulness, the willingness to fail, and the urge to make a difference.

Klara and the Sun is the first novel by Kazuo Ishiguro since he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature 2017

'The Sun always has ways to reach us.'

From her place in the store, Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, watches carefully the behaviour of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass in the street outside. She remains hopeful a customer will soon choose her, but when the possibility emerges that her circumstances may change for ever, Klara is warned not to invest too much in the promises of humans.

In Klara and the Sun, Kazuo Ishiguro looks at our rapidly-changing modern world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator to explore a fundamental question: what does it mean to love?

Kazuo Ishiguro was born in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1954 and moved to Britain at the age of five. His eight previous works of fiction have earned him many honours around the world, including the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Booker Pr- ize. His work has been translated into over fifty languages and The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go, both made into acclaimed films, have sold over a million copies each in Faber editions. He was given a knighthood in 2018 for Services to Literature. He also holds the decorations of Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from France and the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Star...

Kniha Mikea Evanse je okázalou vizuální oslavou úžasných dějin a triumfálního návratu tohoto média. Autor vytahuje z polic a přepravek těžké osmasedmdesátky a živé pětačtyřicítky, výstřední EP i kultovní LP.

Své místo zde mají i dějiny a vývoj různých předních značek jako Atlantic, Audio Fidelity, Casablanca, Decca, Def Jam, Motown, Verve atd., jakož i průlomoví umělci a jejich přelomové nahrávky, od prvních pětačtyřicítek jako „Texarkana Baby" Eddyho Arnolda až po představitele vinylového revivalu Jacka Whitea a jeho album Lazaretto.

Veľká reprezentatívna kniha zachytáva atmosféru Bratislavy rokov 1944 až 1964, ako ju vnímal významný slovenský fotograf Karol Kállay. Vo svojich fotografiách a lyrických textoch rozpráva príbeh mesta, jeho obyvateľov a štvrtí, ktoré dnes už neexistujú. Pripomína časy tesne po vojne, keď sa mesto spamätávalo z jej hrôz a začalo vytvárať svoju novú tvár. Ale aj časy, keď ho ubíjala nezmyselnosť nového režimu. Všetko sa to odráža aj na tvárach obyvateľov Bratislavy, ktorých život autor zvečnil na svojich výnimočných fotografiách. Úvodný text, ktorý je preložený do anglického, nemeckého a maďarského jazyka, napísl prof. Jozef Leikert. Kniha bude vhodná ako reprezentatívny dar pre firmy aj jednotlivcov.

An introduction to the history of American prints

Three Centuries of American Prints

Nearly 200 American prints, representing more than 100 artists, and dating from the colonial era to the present day, are brought together in this unprecedented volume from the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, to commemorate its collection and recent acquisitions.

The artists featured range from Paul Revere through James McNeill Whistler, Mary Cassatt, Winslow Homer, Louise Nevelson, Romare Bearden, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Chuck Close and Kara Walker. The works cover the major movements in American art and print history, so major art and historical themes running through the collection are readily visible. Lending context, twelve contributing authors discuss the varied themes in American art.

Biographies of the artists and a glossary of printmaking terms are also featured.

Published in association with the National Gallery of Art

Judith Brodie is the curator and head of the Department of Modern Prints and Drawings at the National Gallery of Art. Amy Johnston is the assistant curator of Prints and Drawings at the National Gallery of Art. Michael J. Lewis is the Faison-Pierson-Stoddard Professor of Art History, Williams College.
