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.

In this stunning French cooking bible, chef Marianne Megnier-Moreno simplifies the art of French cooking as she teaches home cooks how to create a range of impressive French dishes.

She follows these hands-on instructions with forty recipes for making classic French dishes, including boeuf bourguignon, salmon confit, cheese soufflé, stuffed mussels, pot-au-feu, roast chicken, and the perfect hamburger. Magnier-Moreno explains how preparation adds depths of flavor to each dish, breaks down the technique involved in creating it, and includes helpful photos for every step, as well as one large full-page photo of the final dish.

French Cooking at Home also contains an illustrated glossary that provides detailed instructions and photography to help you perfect your culinary skills, including plating, decorating, preparing meat, cutting and cooking methods, and key utensils.

The first publication in English of Sergio Larrain’s much-prized book Valparaíso

Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain (1931–2012) published very few books during his lifetime, but perhaps the most f?ted among them was Valparaíso. He photographed this Chilean seaport throughout his career, but it was in the early 1960s, when he returned to his homeland after travelling the world for many years as a Magnum photographer, that it became a focus for his attention. He saw it as ‘a rather sordid yet romantic city’, standing between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, falling into a slow decline as its trading importance faded away, yet still retaining hints of beauty and magic.

Now published in English for the first time with an introduction by Agn?s Sire as well as a specially written text by Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda, this new edition of Valparaíso is based on a layout that Larrain designed in 1993, in response to the original French edition of 1991. It also includes a selection of previously unpublished photographs taken between 1952 and 1992, expanding the original 36 images to a total of 120.

This intimate book features handwritten notes and texts by the artist himself, allowing us to share his singular vision of the world and its moments of grace.

An infant curled within a seashell, on a bed of flowers, or on its mother’s body. With her distinct style and sensitive compositions, Anne Geddes has become one of the world’s most widely known and loved photographers, celebrated for her unique take on infancy and parenthood in soft, characterful, vibrant portraits.

Like no photographer before, Geddes strives to capture the beauty, purity, and vulnerability of early childhood and to embody within an image her deeply held belief that each and every child must be “protected, nurtured and loved.” Since its inception in 1992, The Geddes Philanthropic Trust has designated significant funds from the range of Anne Geddes products to help prevent child abuse and neglect in countries around the world.

This Geddes retrospective draws from access to the photographer’s complete archive, reaching back to the late 1980s. With many previously unseen images as well as a sticker motif, it honors not only a whimsical and endearing aesthetic but its underlying philosophy of care for the young and vulnerable and for the future of mankind.

The photographer

Anne Geddes (born 1956) is one of the world’s most unique photographers, whose beloved imagery of infants and parenthood has been published in over 84 countries and 24 languages. A global ambassador for children, Geddes has her own Philanthropic Trust and is an Ambassador Volunteer for the March of Dimes and an Ambassador for the GSK global awareness campaign for meningococcal disease. This is her first book for TASCHEN.

The author

Holly Stuart Hughes has been the editor of PDN, the award-winning print and online publication for professional photographers, since 1998. A graduate of Yale, she has lectured on artist’s rights and cultural trends to photography groups around the U.S., served as a portfolio reviewer at several photo festivals, and co-curated a show at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.

Back in the days when the information age was a distant dream and the world a more mysterious place, National Geographic began its mission to reveal the wonders of history, popular science, and culture to eager audiences around the globe. Since that 1888 launch, the world has changed; empires have risen and crumbled and a galaxy of information is today only a click away. But National Geographic endures; its calm, authoritative voice is as respected as ever amid the surfeit of data in our daily lives.

In this new anthology, TASCHEN and National Geographic gather the magazine’s best infographics of the past 128 years. Through seven sections—History, The Planet, Being Human, Animal World, World of Plants, Science & Technology, and Space—we encounter the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, the mysterious origins of the Easter Island statues, Cleopatra’s Alexandria, and the anatomy behind a cheetah’s extraordinary speed. We discover how our genetic patterns have been pieced together over the years and how birds make music; we get to grips with global warming and explore our ever-expanding study of an ever-expanding universe.

With an essay by Nigel Holmes, charting the evolution of National Geographic over the decades and its pioneering use of graphics, as well as five fold-outs mimicking original pull-outs or inserts in the magazine, the book stands as a defining record of one of the world’s best-known publications as well as a beautifully presented repository of accessible discovery and learning. Visualizing the histories, facts, and figures that make up our planet and our species, National Geographic Infographics is as true to the magazine’s original mission as ever—an anchor of knowledge and a wunderkammer of discovery for young and old alike.

The editor

Julius Wiedemann studied graphic design and marketing, and was an art editor for digital and design magazines in Tokyo. His many TASCHEN titles include Illustration Now!, Logo Design, Jazz Covers, and Information Graphics.

Angels, devils, and demons have played a significant role ever since the emergence of religious beliefs. As messengers from other worlds, be they harbingers of good news or tempters, they touch the fundamental hopes and fears of every human being while at the same time depicting the eternal battle of good and evil.

In Christian art, angels and devils, with their human-like aspects allied with their angelic or devilish nature, were a favorite theme of painters and sculptors, as their imagination was set free to create artworks that fascinate in every respect, including masterpieces like “The Last Judgement” by Giotto di Bondone, “The Annunciation” by Leonardo da Vinci, “The Temptation of Saint Anthony” by Hieronymus Bosch, or “The Gates of Hell” by Auguste Rodin, to name but a few.

Angelus & Diabolus is the first publication of its kind to offer a visually stunning collection of the most beautiful and breath-taking pieces of art reflecting this exciting contrast between Heaven and Hell. Seven comprehensive chapters examine the topic from various angles like the nature, the duties and the hierarchy of angels, the downfall of sinful angels, angelic choirs, the pain of hell, imaginations of the end of the world, or the manifestations of heaven.

Substantial texts by art historian Dr. Maria-Christina Boerner are accompanied by striking pictures by photographer Achim Bednorz, some of which show rarely seen details and make otherwise hidden elements accessible to the beholder. This tome comprises an unprecedented compilation of this timeless subject.

Relax by the ocean or head to the mountains? This vacation planning debate-starter is actually a fairly recent invention. To people of an earlier era, both options seemed unappealing and nearly impossible to visit. It wasn’t until railroads came along that remote areas  became accessible, making travel agency founder, Thomas Cook, the inventor of modern tourism as well. Fishing villages turned into swanky beach resorts, out-of-the-way mountain hamlets became hot destinations for hikers and skiers, and humble inns blossomed into grand hotels. Nostalgic Journeys takes you on an unforgettable trip through the last two centuries: ride the Orient Express to the Middle East, cross the Atlantic on an enormous steamship, follow Route 66 through the USA, or break through the sound barrier on the Concorde. Paging through this volume will remind you that traveling was and can be more than just sitting in traffic or enduring security checks. Travel can also be a stylish and sometimes adventurous way to experience the world and return home forever changed by exotic sights and sounds. Bon voyage!

  • A unique cultural history of travel and tourism in the 19th and 20th centuries
  • This volume will awaken feelings of both nostalgia and wanderlust 
  • Full of historic photographs that will amaze and delight

Franck Bohbot s Light On New York City is a sentimental and nocturnal exploration of the city that never sleeps. In this photography project that began in 2013, New York City is presented in a series of haunting and cinematic images as seen in the nighttime façades and storefronts of buildings that boast neon marquees and signage, eerily preserved in all of their nostalgic and kitschy glory, to undeniably sleek and contemporary exteriors with more daring architectural design. This aesthetic, along with the predominant absence of people, results in a melancholic atmosphere reminiscent of Edward Hopper paintings and evocative of staged theatrical sets a merging of a contemporary urban reality and a magical, sentimental artificiality. The photographs featured in Light On New York City convey a luminescence that celebrates modernity while longing for the past in an ironically ageless paradox.
