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.

A bold anthology that explores how photographers worldwide are tackling the maelstrom of family life. It will appeal to photographers both professional and amateur, and to anyone who has ever been intrigued by dramas played out behind closed doors.

'Family Photography Now' presents 40 international image-makers who have turned their lens on the complex dynamics of the family, whether their own or other people’s.
    Here you will find Swedish stay-at-home dads and Congolese first-time mothers, families with same-sex parents and families with identical twins, blended families and extended families, portraits made via Skype and portraits of imaginary families. Sophisticated art projects appear alongside highly personal images.

From Magnum member Trent Parke’s darkly amusing shots of life in suburban Australia and Denis Dailleux’s portraits of Egyptian bodybuilders and their mothers to Elina Brotherus’s devastating records of failed IVF and Nadia Sablin’s elegy to her elderly aunts in rural Russia, this book takes readers on powerful journeys that are by turns moving, funny, thought-provoking and inspiring, encouraging us to reflect on how we photograph our own families.

Complete with profiles revealing each photographer’s story and working methodology, and two essays analyzing the complications of family attachments and the ways in which these have been captured in photography of many genres and moods.

Sophie Howarth is a writer, teacher, curator and entrepreneur based in London. Co-founder of The School of Life, she has also been Curator of Public Programmes at Tate Modern and an Associate Curator for Artangel. Stephen McLaren is a widely exhibited photographer, writer and curator based in San Francisco. Howarth and McLaren are co-authors of Street Photography Now,
also published by Thames & Hudson.

The first complete overview of the most important contemporary architecture practice ever to have emerged from China

The skylines of modern China are punctuated by architecture that amazes, inspires, and awes. Many of these structures are the work of new, experimental practices like China-based MAD Architects. MAD Works not only documents the buildings of this group of avant-garde architects but also traces the development of their ideas through associated practice including art, research, and exhibition projects. Organized thematically, the book explores the underlying concepts of MAD Architects' work. MAD Works is illustrated with photographs, architectural drawings, and 3D visualizations to provide a thorough exploration of MAD Architect's international portfolio of completed works, unbuilt projects, and future ideas.

The Wiener Werkstätte (“Vienna Workshop”) bears many hallmarks of a modern creative movement. Founded in 1903 by Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Fritz Waerndorfer, this progressive alliance of artists and designers was particularly interested in challenging industrialised society with individual handcraftsmanship, and in bringing different facets of life into one unified, elegant artwork.

The workshop began life in three small rooms, but soon expanded to fill a three storey building with special departments for metalwork, leatherwork, and woodwork, as well as a book binder and a paint shop. Artists experimented with various materials such as gold, precious stones, and papier mâché and applied their simple, often geometric, designs across ceramics, textiles, typography, interior design, furniture, and fashion. In architectural commissions such as the Purkersdorf Sanatorium and the Palais Stoclet in Brussels, the group was able to realize its ideal of the Gesamtkunstwerk (“total artwork”), in which every detail of an environment was designed as an integral part of a coordinated whole.

Though the workshop lasted only 30 years, it enjoyed major commercial success, with outlets in Karlsbad, Marienbad, Zurich, New York, and Berlin. It also garnered designs from many of the leading artists of the epoch, including Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, and Egon Schiele. Today, the Vienna Workshop is recognized for its comprehensive approach to artistic practice and its stylistic influence on Art Deco and Bauhaus.

The author

Gabriele Fahr-Becker studied art history, archaeology, and philosophy, and gained her doctorate from Munich University in 1970 with a thesis on Art Nouveau. She has published numerous books on turn-of-the-century art.

Fritz Kahn byl německý lékař, pedagog, spisovatel populární vědy a průkopník informační grafiky, jehož duchaplné dílo ale upadlo v zapomnění. Z Německa byl vyhnán nacisty, kteří také spálili a zakázali jeho knihy. Kahn emigroval do Palestiny, později žil ve Francii a nakonec ve Spojených státech, kde pokračoval v jeho celoživotním díle. Dosáhl četných úspěchů, přičemž nejpozoruhodnější byl rozvoj tvůrčích vizualizací vysvětlujících složité vědecké myšlenky. Tato Khanova monografie, která vychází u příležitosti 125. výročí jeho narození, obsahuje více než 350 ilustrací s obsáhlými popisky, tři původní texty Fritze Kahna, předmluva Stevena Hellera a esej o Kahnově životě a díle. Touto knihou budou naprosto fascinování všichni, kdo se zajímají o přírodní vědy, vizuální vyjadřování myšlenek i profesionální grafici.

From Chaplin’s last silent films to the colorful Wizard of Oz In the 1930s, the legendary City of Cinema moved from the silent era to the talking picture. It was a decade of pomp and excess in the motion picture capital, of glorious stardom and megalomaniac directors; a time when politicians and the mob all wanted a piece of the thrilling action. It was the age of the Marx brothers, Greta Garbo, Frankenstein, and Gone with the Wind, Charlie Chaplin's bowler hat and moustache, Marlene Dietrich's androgynous glamor, and Jean Harlow's perfectly positioned beauty spot. In this tribute to Tinseltown's finest age, illustrator Robert Nippoldt and film critic Daniel Kothenschulte team up to pay homage to the creators, characters and charisma that made up this golden era. With his evocative illustration style, previously showcased in TASCHEN's Jazz: New York in the Roaring Twenties, Robert Nippoldt captures the scene with all its seduction, celebrity, and its grit. In the accompanying text, Kothenschulte profiles the movers and shakers of the age, as well as its most groundbreaking developments across movie direction, music, costume, scenery and beyond. Brimming with elegance and energy, this enchanting journey in images and words takes the reader back in Tinseltown time, direct to the heart, and the sheer movie-making thrill, of a decisive cinematic decade.

Through blood, sweat, tears, and writhing, bikini-clad bodies, this book compiles the best images of Theo Ehret, an unsung giant of sports photography. From the mid-1960s through the early 1980s, Ehret chronicled the matches at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in L.A. as well as the erotic sub-genre of “apartment wrestling.”

Through the weigh-ins, the injuries, the backstage brawls, and the captivated crowds, Ehret’s images capture all the action and the atmosphere of the Grand Olympic Auditorium, where the likes of André the Giant, Killer Kowalski, The Sheik, Gordman and Goliath, and Jesse “The Body” all punched their way to stardom. Alongside the Grand Olympic shots are the dramatic apartment wrestling images, a male fantasy phenomenon of bare breasts and buttocks, long, strong limbs and staged passions.

An interview with Ehret adds his personal commentary to both sides of the wrestling scene, the legends he met along the way, and the interplay of fantasy, reality, and photography.

At first glance, Walton Ford’s large-scale, highly-detailed watercolors of animals recall the prints of 19th century illustrators John James Audubon and Edward Lear. A closer look reveals a complex and disturbingly anthropomorphic universe, full of symbols, sly jokes, and allusions to the ‘operatic’ nature of traditional natural history.

In this stunning but sinister visual universe, beasts and birds are not mere aesthetic objects but rather dynamic actors in allegorical struggles: a wild turkey crushes a small parrot in its claw; a troupe of monkeys wreak havoc on a formal dinner table; an American buffalo is surrounded by bloodied white wolves. In dazzling watercolor, the images come to impress as much for their impeccable naturalism as they do for their complex narratives.

This updated edition of Pancha Tantra features the artist’s most recent works and contextualizes his collection of bestial tableaux with an in-depth exploration of his oeuvre, a complete biography, and excerpts from his textual inspirations: Vietnamese folktales and the letters of Benjamin Franklin, the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini, and Audubon’s Ornithological Biography.

The artist:
Walton Ford, born 1960, studied filmmaking at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), but soon realized he was a painter. For the last twenty years he has been creating large-scale narrative watercolours. His work has been widely exhibited, including solo shows at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin and the Brooklyn Museum in New York.

The author:
Bill Buford is an author and New Yorker staff writer, as well as the founding editor of Granta, which he edited for 16 years. His books include Among the Thugs and Heat: An Amateur’s Adventures as a Kitchen Slave. He lives in New York City with his wife and two sons.
