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.

Pin-up travels the long road from barracks wall to high art

In the 15 years since TASCHEN released The Great American Pin-up, international interest in this distinctly American art form has increased exponentially. Paintings by leading artists such as Alberto Vargas, George Petty, and Gil Elvgren that sold for $ 2,000 in 1996 are going for $ 200,000 and more today. Pin-up: drawings, paintings and pastels of an idealized female face and figure intended for public display, was produced between 1920 and 1970, for use on calendars, and magazine covers and centerfolds. The majority of original paintings were discarded by publishers and calendar companies after printing, making the surviving art that much more precious. Today it’s popularity is huge, and ripe for an equally huge and truly comprehensive collector’s edition.

Formidably sized, The Art of Pin-up is an impressive book that will be coveted by casual fans as well as hardcore pin-up collectors. The top 10 artists are profiled in depth. Each chapter opens with a tipped-in reproduction of an original calendar or magazine cover by that artist. The reproduction quality of the paintings, pastels, and preparatory sketches that follow—largely sourced from the original art— invites the viewer to trace the brush strokes, while the exquisite period calendars, vintage prints, and original model photos document the artists’ creative process. Much of these ephemera were photographed on-site at the historic Brown & Bigelow Company, home to the world’s largest archive of vintage pin-up calendars.

In addition to the chapters on the 10 featured artists, the book includes thumbnail bios and representative art of 85 additional artists, the most complete compendium of pin-up artists ever compiled. All this adds up to a hard-to-beat book on this popular subject.

Čínský jazyk se tradičně vyučuje prostřednictvím sady zhruba 180 až 215 radikálů. Tyto radikály jsou pak použity k vytvoření znaků čínského jazyka. Karetní učebnice "Chineasy: 100 Postcards" člení tuto sadu do jejích nejzákladnějších a opakujících se forem, což umožňuje studentům naučit se méně jednodušších radikálů, které jsme nazvali stavebními bloky. Jeden stavební blok nebo specifická sloučenina formy stavebního bloku může být kombinována s jedním nebo více dalšími znaky, aby se sloučily ve znak. Dva nebo více nezávislých znaků může být umístěno vedle sebe, aby se utvořila fráze. Ve sloučeninách vznikají zcela nové znaky, umístění znaků vedle sebe dává nový význam danému souboru znaků. Tento princip stavebních bloků dělá pak výuku psané čínštiny snadnou!

Long before the first computer-generated 3-D images, M.C. Escher was a master of the third dimension. His impossible geometry and illusions, bordering between the scientific and psychological, are an homage to the possibilities of the human mind. This collection presents the artist’s key graphic works and illustrations in stunning full-page reproductions, complete with detailed explanations of each mathematical problem.

“A woman once rang me up and said, ‘Mr. Escher, I am absolutely crazy about your work. In your print Reptiles, you have given such a striking illustration of reincarnation.’ I replied, ‘Madame, if that’s the way you see it, so be it.’” A fittingly sly comment from renowned Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898–1972), whose complex and ambiguous drawings continue to leave hasty interpretations far behind.

Long before the first computer-generated 3-D images, Escher was a master of the third dimension. His lithograph Magic Mirror dates as far back as 1946. By taking such a title for the book, mathematician Bruno Ernst stressed the enrapturing spell Escher’s work invariably casts on those who see it. Ernst visited Escher every week for a year, systematically talking through his entire oeuvre with him. Their discussions resulted in a friendship that gave Ernst intimate access to the life and conceptual world of Escher. Ernst’s account was meticulously scrutinized and made accurate by the artist himself.

Escher’s work refuses to be pigeonholed. Scientific, psychological, or aesthetic criteria alone cannot do it justice. The questions remain: Why did he create the pictures? How did he construct them? What preliminary studies were necessary before achieving the final version? And how are his various creations interrelated? This book, complete with biographical data, 250 illustrations, and a thorough breaking-down of each mathematical problem, offers answers to these and many other lingering mysteries, and is an authentic source text of the first order.

When the excavations at Pompeii were first placed on a scholarly, archaeological footing in the 19th century, brothers Fausto and Felice Niccolini were close at hand and ready to respond. Making use of the newly introduced technique of color lithography, they documented the buildings, frescos, statues, as well as its most ordinary everyday objects, of the city buried in just 24 hours by the catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius and preserved for over 1,600 years under a mantle of volcanic ash.

The Niccolini’s goal was to illustrate all aspects of life in the antique city. Their publication, Le case ed i monumenti di Pompei (“The Houses and Monuments of Pompeii”), which was issued in instalments between 1854 and 1896 in Naples, presented over 400 color plates providing not only views, maps, and groundplans of the city and its public buildings, but also offered unprecedented access to Pompeii’s private residences. They revealed the astonishing painted wall decorations that adorned these long-buried abodes, their intricate works of art, and the practical utensils of everyday use, conjuring up a vivid picture of each house as a real, domestic space. In total, the plates illustrated more than 1,000 items, each extensively specified and located for the first time, making the publication a major reference in Pompeii research. In addition, “animated” representations visualized daily life in Pompeii’s workshops, taverns, and shops, on its public squares, and in its temples, theatres, and baths.

This meticulous facsimile revives the Niccolini’s extraordinary achievement with all color plates and two introductory essays setting the project in its contemporary context and presenting the historical protagonists of the Vesuvian excavations. In addition, we explore the remarkable influence exerted by Pompeian art – and by the haunting plaster casts made of victims of the eruption – on the visual arts. Across painting, sculpture, and interior design, we trace the Pompeii legacy in the work of Robert Adam, Anton Raphael Mengs, Angelika Kaufmann, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Pablo Picasso, and Giorgio de Chirico, right through to recent masters Duane Hanson and George Segal.

This comprehensive, beautifully illustrated book takes you through the astonishing history of life on Earth

All humans are fascinated by their origins, and this comprehensive book traces an extraordinary journey, spanning 4 billion years, from the emergence of bacteria to the rise of the species that coexist today. Evolution: The Whole Story equips you with everything you need to know about the development and survival of life on Earth.

Our understanding of evolution has a profound effect on our appreciation of the natural world. The plants and animals alive today account for only one per cent of the species that have ever lived, and this book will enable you to understand why and how the other 99 per cent perished.

Here you will encounter pivotal evolutionary turning points, uncover false starts and global disasters, and trace the crucial scientific breakthroughs that have contributed to our understanding of this planet and the creatures on it.

• A complete account of all major life groups, from early single-celled organisms to the emergence of today’s species
• Chronological timelines plot key evolutionary events and discoveries for each major group
• A spectacular variety of images, including fossils, skeletons, life-like reconstructions and living plants and animals
• Profiles of the scientists who made major contributions to our understanding of evolution

Beginning with single-celled organisms, then discussing plants, invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, dinosaurs, mammals and humans, each chapter presents essays on particular subgroups. Photographic features then investigate organisms in detail, with reference to the ways in which their anatomy suited their environment, the factors that necessitated adaptation – or caused their demise – and their evolutionary legacies. Extinct species are analysed with reference to fossil specimens, reassembled skeletons and reconstructions, while living creatures are compared to their ancestors.

Learn about the giant spiders that prowled the seas until 250 million years ago; the sharks that changed little in 400 million years; the carnivorous dinosaurs that roamed during the Cretaceous period; the terror birds that gave rise to ostriches; and the complex evolution of the horse. Helpful cladograms clarify relationships between each animal or plant group. Theorists, fossil-hunters, palaeontologists and geneticists have all contributed to the unravelling of this complex subject, and here, profiles of eminent figures place important discoveries in their historical context.

Steve Parker is a Senior Scientific Fellow of the Zoological Society of London and has worked at the Natural History Museum, London. He has written more than two hundred books and contributed to, or acted as consultant for, another hundred or so titles
Alice Roberts is a clinical anatomist and Professor of Public Engagement in Science at the University of Birmingham.
