Le Code d’Esther The Esther Code beRnaRD benYaMIn and YoHan PeReZ A thrilling investigation on a century old prophecy. The authors of this essay have made an amazing discovery: there is a secret code hidden in the Book of Esther (in the Torah) that predicted the events of the Holocaust! Their research was prompted by the last words of Julius Streicher, one of the 10 high ranking Nazi officers being tried at Nuremberg. As he was about to be hanged he cried out: “Purim 1946!”. He was referring to the Jewish holiday Purim, which celebrates the escape by the Jews from extermination at the hands of Haman, an ancient Persian government official. At the end of the Purim story, Haman is hanged, as are his ten sons.

FORMAT: 154 x 240 mm PAGES: 272 BINDING: Paperback PUBLICATION DATE: Oct. 2012 RIGHTS: World

The narrator of this investigation analyzes the Book of Esther in great detail and travels all over the world in search of clues. Part Da Vinci Code, part Indiana Jones and the raiders of the Lost Ark, this investigation into this century old prophecy is a page turner, but in which everything is true! THe aUTHoRs: Bernard Benyamin is a journalist and television producer. He is the co-creator of the very famous French investigative journalism program Envoyé Spécial. Yohan Perez is a producer and director for French television.

CARICATURES ET PROPAGANDE DE LA GRANDE GUERRE

Dans cette guerre sans collaborateurs, une fois n’est pas coutume, les plus célèbres illustrateurs de l’époque, et cela dans les deux camps, n’hésitèrent pas à mettre leur talent au service d’une « Vérité », laquelle, comme chacun sait, est la première victime de la guerre.

Caricatures were instrumental in the propaganda of all the countries involved in World War I. Each side used them to picture the other in the worst possible way in order to rally public opinion. This work collects cartoons and drawings from all of the countries involved: France, Germany, England, the nited States, Italy, Russia… These caricatures, and their accompanying text, give a new perspective on the Great War and testify to the power of images. 563446

The Sixties Rediscovered The Sixties Rediscovered

Essai couverture Kasparian_Mise en page 1 11/09/13 18:16 Page13

RoGeR KasPaRIan Rock and pop are now the stuff of museum and it seems as if everything has already been seen and told about the Sixties. This work is a fresh look at the Sixties scene by a rogue photographer named Roger Kasparian. As an employee of now forgotten magazines, Kasparian hounded the stars of rock and pop of that era. He used the Paris airports as his studio and caught the arrivals of the biggest names: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Beach Boys, The Yardbirds, Serge Gainsbourg, Françoise Hardy or The Kinks. The stars of the sixties are all there; candid portraits in dressing rooms or in the streets of Paris or in their homes and studios as well as live photos. Roger Kasparian’s collection has been unearthed by an antiques collector allowing dozens of photographs to see the light of day again. Kasparian, the eternal shadow, shines as bright as the stars now.
