    Title: Art Forms in Nature: Prints of Ernst Haeckel
    Author: BREIDBACH OLAF

    The geometric shapes and natural forms, captured with exceptional precision in Ernst Haeckel's prints, still influence artists and designers to this day. This volume highlights the research and findings of this natural scientist. Powerful modern microscopes have confirmed the accuracy of Haeckel's prints, which even in their day, became world famous. Haeckel's portfolio, first published between 1899 and 1904 in separate installments, is described in the opening essays. The plates illustrate Haeckel's fundamental monistic notion of the "unity of all living things" and the wide variety of forms are executed with utmost delicacy. Incipient microscopic organisms are juxtaposed with highly developed plants and animals. The pages, ordered according to geometric and "constructive" aspects, document the oness of the world in its most diversified forms. This collection of plates was not only well-received by scientists, but by artists and architects as well. Rene Binet, a pioneer of glass and iron constructions, Emile Galle, a renowned Art Nouveau designer, and the photographer Karl Blossfeld all make explicit reference to Haeckel in their work.

    Title: Dick Bruna: The Illustrators Series
    Author: INGMAN BRUCE & REIHILL RAMONA


    By the time Dutch artist Dick Bruna retired, he was an international star, far beyond the sphere of children's books, and his creation, Miffy, had become a global sensation, translated into more than 50 languages. Fellow illustrator Bruce Ingman takes readers behind the scenes of the work of Dick Bruna, who created some of the world's most endearing children's characters. Offering a deeper appreciation of the artistry and skill behind the international icon Miffy, also reveals Bruna's lesser- known works, including his striking book and poster designs.


    Inspired by Fernand L ger and Henri Matisse, Bruna's clearly defined use of line, color, and text, confirmed that for him, the illustration and book design processes were inseparable. Ingman shows us how the elegant simplicity of Bruna's illustrations appeals to children, artists, and designers alike, and how he gained devoted fans across ages and artistic disciplines.


    With an illustrator's insight, this book celebrates Bruna along with his influences. A glimpse into his studio reveals a man of many media, including drawing, painting, collage, and photography. All the elements of Bruna's extensive body of work, spanning book covers, posters, stamps, and merchandise, are given space in this illuminating study of his stunningly successful career.

    Title: Emperor of the Eight Islands #1 Tale of Shikanoko
    Author: HEARN LIAN


    In the opening pages of the action-packed Book One of Lian Hearn's epic Tale of Shikanoko series, a future lord is dispossessed of his birthright by a scheming uncle, a mountain sorcerer imbues a mask with the spirit of a great stag for a lost young man, a stubborn father forces his son to give up his wife to his older brother, and a powerful priest meddles in the succession to the Lotus Throne, the child who is the rightful heir to the emperor barely escaping the capital in the arms of his sister. And that is just the beginning.


    As destiny weaves its rich tapestry, a compelling drama plays out against a background of wild forests, elegant castles, hidden temples, and savage battlefields. This is the medieval Japan of Lian Hearn's imagination, where animal spirits clash with warriors and children navigate a landscape as serene as it is deadly.
