Der Glanz The Splendor derofEpochen the Epochs

After the international success of ARS SACRA the passionate bookmakers Rolf Toman and Achim Bednorz now proudly present their new opulent masterpieces in a deluxe format. Rolf Toman originally wanted to become a teacher, but following his second state exam instead of working in a school, he worked as an editor with a large international publisher. Starting in 1992, he worked as a freelance publisher for different international publishers. Art history epoch volumes are at the heart of his many years of work. A book on Christian monasticism (Monasteries and Monastic Orders, 2007) resulted in Ars Sacra, as yet the most elaborate title in his career. Rolf Toman lives and works in southern France.

Photographer Achim Bednorz has worked for international publications on art history topics for over 20 years. He made a name for himself mainly as a specialist in sacral areas. His interpretation principle is phenomenally simple: as realistic as possible, meaning with depiction of the object in balanced lighting; recognizability in ideal conditions, and no sensationalism. He is the photographer of the overwhelming photos in Ars Sacra. Achim Bednorz lives and works in Cologne.

Visual Art of the Middle Ages After the international success of Ars Sacra, Rolf Toman and his team once more embark on a journey into the world of art. The uncontested highlights are without a doubt the famous French cathedrals of Chartres, Reims, and Laon, but there is more to the culture, understanding, and self-perception of the Middle Ages. This volume presents outstanding treasures of medieval imagery both in a religious and civic context, such as religious panel paintings, Madonna statues, illumination, goldsmithing as well as courtly culture and architecture. Photographer Achim Bednorz, known for his passionate and meticulous approach, has succeeded in capturing details with the lens of his camera that cannot even be perceived at the original locations. Author Bruno Klein brings to life the seemingly remote world of the Middle Ages, helping the reader to see and understand the different concepts and conditions of life in the times now known as the Gothic epoch.

Theatrum Mundi. The World as a Work of Art The Palace of Versailles and St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican—these are the epitomes of Baroque architecture. But there is more to it; there are undreamed-of jewels in Europe and America, then the New World, waiting for discovery. The wealth and variety of works of art that were created in this complex and fascinating epoch spans magnificent libraries and mysterious gardens, skilfully handcrafted porcelain and illusionistic painting, to name just a few less obvious aspects. The photographs by Achim Bednorz, which are exclusively featured in this volume, come to their full effect in the large format at hand. Author Barbara Borngässer invites the reader to join her on a virtual journey into a historical world that was perceived and staged as if it were a theatre—the Theatrum Mundi.

10 Art and Architecture

How did the monks, nuns and hermits live? What rules did they agree to obey? To what extent were they able to uphold those ideals in reality? What was the relationship between the monasteries and worldly authorities? And what was the source of the power that the religious orders were able to exercise in political affairs at various times? Are the remarkable cultural accomplishments of the cloisters simply the fruits of great self-discipline, or did they also result from a privileged way of life? Who were the men and women who entered monasteries?

Art historian Kristina Krüger is a specialist in the art and architecture of the Middle Ages. Her research and publications focusing in particular on the relationship between architecture and liturgy make her the ideal author for this book.

An Opulent Collection of Historical Ornaments

The History and Culture of a Legendary City

An Opulent Collection of Patterns – from Ancient Greece to the Middle Ages, from the Renaissance to Classicism, from Japanese to Floral Style

Byzantium – Constantinople – Istanbul: The city that was once founded as a Greek settlement on the Bosporus can look back on a history replete with significant political and cultural developments. This impressive book unveils the inheritance of a fascinating city. Christened “Constantinople” by Constantine the Great, the city successively served as the capital of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires and commanded a key position between Occident and Orient for more than sixteen centuries. The wealth of cultural treasures that characterize the face of Istanbul today reflects this rich history. The Hagia Sophia stems from the early Christian era; the Middle Ages bequeathed us churches and monasteries rich in mosaics as well as illuminated manuscripts and icons; and the cultural renaissance following the conquest of the city by Mehmed II in 1453 brought magnificent palaces and mosques, calligraphic treasures, and book and miniature paintings inspired by Persian and Arabic forms. The buildings of the Ottoman baroque period and nineteenth-century architecture complete the exceptional cityscape Istanbul boasts today.

This volume is based on the well-known 1892 collection of ornamental designs, The Practical Decorator and Ornamentist by George A. and Maurice A. Audsley. Originally conceived as a collection of samples for architects and decorative painters, many professionals have found inspiration in this book, including cabinet-makers, ceramicists, and engravers. This way, these ornaments found their way into tapestry designs, carpets and upholstery fabrics. Ornaments is not restricted to a mere reproduction of the original designs, though; it also provides commentary based on the original annotations of the Audsleys, and describes the background of ornament from a perspective of the history of style and cultural studies, from ancient Greece to the Middle Ages, from the Renaissance to Classicism, from Japanese style to floral style. The book is completed by detailed instructions on how to copy the ornaments.

Richly illustrated and studded with selected literary documents, this book conveys a living experience of Constantinople in all its various aspects.

If you approach Venice by way of the lagoon, the city appears to be a single, homogenous building.

This classic volume offers detailed insight into the broad spectrum of architecture, sculpture, and painting of the »city on the lagoon«. The authors chronologically progress through the stages of Venetian art history from the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries. More than 500 illustrations document the eventful artistic development of this exceptional city, whose monuments have been largely preserved until today.

Berlin, since 1990 the capital of all of Germany again, is distinguished by an exciting and unusual history that is mirrored in its unique architecture and countless museums with works of art famous throughout the world. The Reichs­tag building, the Brandenburg Gate, the Palace of Charlottenburg, and Potsdamer Platz are only a few of the countless stops the viewer can explore in detail. Berlin exerts a very special fascination, not least because of its former status as a divided city.

The Prado is without doubt for Madrid what the Louvre is for Paris and the Uffizi for Florence. A guidebook through this museum with a know­ ledgeable commentary is therefore essential for really getting to know Madrid. However, this richly illustrated book not only portrays the city and its art in a dynamic relationship, it also relates a long and checkered history – from its beginnings and its charms as a residence, to the Civil War and modern times – expressed in countless churches, buildings, and squares.

Getty Images has one of the most important photo collections in the world. The fascinating black-and-white and color photographs in this volume lead observers through almost two centuries of the history of photo journalism. Including both, mundane daily life and the grandest events, the ideals and concerns of the decades are conveyed through an exciting perspective. The book chapters illuminate the chronology of political events and topical issues that go beyond them, such as economical, cultural, environmental and scientific aspects. The documentation includes the latest developments of our millennium, such as the nuclear power disaster in Fukushima and the upheavals resulting from the Arab Spring. A must-read for anyone interested in photography and current affairs.

This extraordinary construction kit contains eight different models to build yourself – from a delightful car with driver to a plane with propeller. There are perforated construction sheets for each figure and additional material, including wooden sticks, a rubber band and beads, and an extensive manual with detailed step-by-step illustrations. Even non-experts will be able to build these models. The colorful results will delight not only children. The models have been lovingly created and include ingenious mechanisms: when you push the car, the driver and his luggage sway amusingly from side to side, caused by clever positioning of the rear axle. The clown’s facial expression changes when you turn the wooden sticks. Kimono ISBN 978-3-8331-6323-4
