  • Andy Warhols New York City Four Walks
    Andy Warhols New York City Four Walks
    ISBN: 9781892145932
    Publication date: 01/09/2011

    Andy, Andy everywhere. Twenty-three years after his death, few figures hover over New York City--its art, its street life, its commerce, its creativity, its nightlife, its myths, and its idea of itself--like Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol's New York City provides a panoramic view of the artist's life there from the fifties through the eighties. Eighty sites associated with the artist careen delightfully from coffee shops to museums, from disco clubs to churches, with dozens of glamorous and gritty places in between. Fashionistas will love reading about the rare pretzel-print dress Warhol designed (now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art) and seeing him looking like a character out of Mad Men as he's photographed on the steps of the Met; cineastes will be riveted to the behind-the-scenes stories of his films; art lovers will appreciate the comprehensive listing of his many shows; and New York City history buffs will savor glimpses of the city's icons--vanished (Schrafft's), current (Serendipity 3), and never-realized (the Andy-Mat). There are sidebars on Warhol's residences, favorite restaurants, and factories. Brief biographies of figures in the book familiarize the reader with the revolving cast of glittering characters that enter and leave the stage as Warhol's story unfolds. Nine original drawings in the book were made specially for "Andy Warhol's New York City" by the artist Vito Giallo, a former studio assistant of Warhol's who executed hundreds of Warhol's ink blot drawings, and who later owned the antique store where Warhol bought thousands of items that were posthumously auctioned at Sotheby's.

    The Bucket List is a collection of 1,000 adventures to be had across every continent, from seeing the northern lights from an igloo in Finland to panning for gold in California, from cruising the Galapagos Islands to ninja training in Japan.

    The Bucket List is the perfect gift for the passionate traveler: an around-the-world, continent-by-continent listing of beaches, museums, monuments, islands, inns, restaurants, mountains, and more.

    Whether it's a gap year before university, a holiday, or a life-changing retirement, this is the handbook to inspire you to do something you've always wanted to, but never thought you could.

  • CIVILIZED SHOPPERS GUIDE TO EDINBURGH AND GLASGOW (OPS)
    CIVILIZED SHOPPERS GUIDE TO EDINBURGH AND GLASGOW (OPS)
    ISBN: 9781892145581

    Named the top shopping destination in the United Kingdom outside of London, "Glasgow is a must-see destination...a mandatory stop on everyone's European travel itinerary" ("The Philadelphia Inquirer") and Edinburgh has long been considered one of the most hospitable cities in Europe. This book has eleven walks-seven in Edinburgh and four in Glasgow-taking shoppers to the most charming and unique stores in both cities, which are less than an hour away from each other by train. The shops included offer cashmere, hats, shoes, books, handcrafted soaps and natural botanicals inspired by Scotland (Treasure Island is a heady mix of musk, lemon, and cinnamon inspired by the Robert Louise Stevenson classic), single malt whiskies, purses, the best of British home design, and jewelry using Scottish gemstones. There are shops that specialize in traditional foods (farmhouse cheeses, toffee, shortbread, and lemon curd). There's a "glorious mess of an antique shop," a "kilt maker for the 21st century" who uses fabrics that range from denim to leather and whose customers include Sean Connery, and many more establishments, both new and historic. Old businesses aren't included simply for being old, but for continuing to offer goods of beauty and quality; new businesses are chosen because they operate in an old-fashioned way, with an emphasis on service and craftsmanship. Some are elegant and refined, some offer on quirky twists on classic themes, but each is stylish and without pretense. One shop owner says her boutique attracts the "discerning and determinedly different." The guide also includes restaurants, pubs, and cafes along the walks, and has an entire section devoted to the stunning tearooms of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Edinburgh farmer's market. Sumptuous color photos throughout give a sneak preview of the shops and their offerings, and the address, phone number, opening days and hours, and website of each establishment are included for extra convenience.
