Painting Recipes A collection designed for mid-level artists interested in perfecting their style,

LANDSCAPE

in trying new forms of interpretation or effects to use in their work, and in developing more creative, modern styles suited to a kind of painting in which effects and color predominate. The series takes its inspiration from cooking recipe books. “Cooking”, in artistic terminology, means experimenting with new techniques and materials, trying out and mixing different substances to obtain new effects. Books on this series propose to explain the thousand “flavors of painting” and offer an extensive catalogue of the techniques, styles and resources of the craft. The content of the work is essentially didactic, with exercises to practice and polish the use of the different techniques and a section explaining how to use unusual materials to obtain a variety of effects.

ARTISTIC DRAWING

After the success of the series Creative Painting, with more than 75,000 copies sold throughout the world, Parramón’s publishing team has created a new collection to help the painter discover the possibilities of traditional expressive media though research and experiment. From the very first page, each book in the collection offers a broad horizon for creative development deriving from the exercises that serve as a starting point. Readers are taught how to examine a subject in order to then proceed to select different forms of pictorial research and thus acquire the fundamentals that will permit them to creatively develop their own personal work. Through technique, experimenting with ranges of color or changes of approach, readers learn to acquire an expressive language of their own. This is without doubt one of the special features of this collection.

Fashion Design & New Technologies Design, Production, Marketing and Communication Technological advances gained ground among creatives of the fashion design industry throughout the 20th century. Several factors are the cause of this rapid expansion, one being the phenomenon of subcontracting FASHION DESIGN & NEW TECHNOLOGIES

or outsourcing. This brings with it a need to improve the communication channels between different creative teams. Another factor can be found in the consolidation of computer applications, which offer an extensive range of work possibilities in addition to better communication between the user and the computer. This book does not, in anyway, attempt to offer a manual of style or a computer tool. The essential focus of the project is to cover the different possibilities offered by technology industries that can be applied to design, reflecting how the creative reality of the fashion industry uses the computer to work in the 21st Century.

Light, Color and Sound Sensorial Effects in Contemporary Architecture Light, color and sound are the three elements in architecture today capable of generating the greatest sensorial impact. Advanced technologies have made possible new ways of integrating color as well as lighting and acoustical systems into buildings, transforming them into veritable mechanisms of interaction with their context and the public. This volume concentrates on these elements and explores the conceptual, aesthetic and technical implications of their application in architecture and of their integration into the very structures of buildings themselves.

into one single project. The temporal nature of window displays, not only of the objects themselves but also how they are perceived, raises complex challenges specific to impermanent architecture. Cinematic dramatization, new forms of artistic expression, and the rise of social and ecological concerns are decisive factors that create a wealth of possibilities in the art of window display.

House by Type PATIO HOUSES

The family house is a proposition that is never far from the thoughts of architects: they dream about it and build it in response to human beings’ material and spiritual needs, they turn it into an interpretation of diverse personal and cultural characteristics, they design it to represent the trends of an age. In this search for the unique house, various typologies offer themselves as ideas from which the form of a building and the characteristics of its elements can be developed. This collection explores various “types” that have come to define the architectural composition of a family house.

Contemporary Housing

Since the origins of architecture up until today, housing continues to be one of the most fundamental aspects of this discipline. The social, geographic, climatic and economic conditions of every neighborhood, town or city generate a diverse range of housing typologies that respond to the characteristics of the site. The objective of this collection is to single out the most significant issues and trends in contemporary residential architecture,

REMATERIAL. WHEN WASTE BECOMES ARCHITECTURE

Rematerial When Waste Becomes Architecture Every day millions of tons of rubbish are dumped into landfills and driven into perpetual disuse. But when creativity meets resourcefulness in the form of an architect, someone else’s waste can become the next designer’s building material. This book explores the possibilities of recycling to create imaginative, attractive and efficient architecture, featuring projects that rescue discarded materials from paper cups to steel containers and transform them into buildings, notable for their sustainable approach to design as well as their contribution to the craft of architecture.

Architectural Interventions in the Landscape Projecting landscape is a practice that goes beyond extreme actions like the complete obliteration of a site’s history or, in contrast, conservationist immobility that spurns all intervention. It is possible to recognize contemporary projects which respond to human demands for a respectful relationship with a natural setting, without denying their condition of artifice and cultural manifestation. Such projects make an effort to understand the place in which they are situated and embrace its distinguishing features as structural elements for their ideas.

In the fiercely competitive corporate world, brands are obliged to search for sophisticated marketing strategies in order to outshine their adversaries and rise above the rest. The implementation of architecture as a marketing tool in order to “build” a corporate image has become a phenomenon over the last few years. This has produced in exceptional buildings designed by world famous architects as a way of elevating the status of prestigious firms through their association with iconic structures. This series offers an in-depth analysis of this growing trend, not only exploring the buildings themselves but also the history of each firm and its relation to evolving design concepts. AUTOMOBILE

Analogies

The design process of any project invariably draws references from our natural environment and finds inspiration in the behavior of plants, the structures of animals or the morphology of minerals.

C

The contemporary architect, like any other designer, continues to explore fixed elements from other disciplines to learn from their structure, form or function. In architecture today, thanks to the current systems of representation and construction, the results can reach a high degree of abstraction and sophisticated execution. This collection focuses on this relationship between architecture and other disciplines, in order to further explore how architects employ mechanisms of abstraction, representation and construction.

Diary of History Who was the first person to discover that the World was round? Who was the first to circumnavigate it? Who was the first to leave it to reach the Moon? Did Persians invent Paradise? Did the Black Death help to develop the printing press? Did Indians invent the number zero? Did the Chinese come up with the idea for the first Earthquake detector? The words we say, the things we use and even many of our ideas are the fruits of philosophies, inventions, and historic facts that took place in other cultures and in other times. Thanks to that legacy we reached civilization. The Diary of History offers children the possibility to explore in a fun way how those times were, since knowing them is a big help to conceive new ideas to invent a better world.

STORIES BY POE

narrative has encouraged us to make a start in this world.

Edgar Allan Poe has gone down in history as a mysterious, eccentric figure. But also as the forerunner of the detective story, the inventor of mystery literature and a master of the short narrative. “The Gold Bug”, “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether”, and “The Fall of the House of Usher” give us a broad view of his narrative skills, from the comical and satirical to intrigue and suspense. Two hundred years after his birth, Poe can still surprise us.

A simple but very attractive narrative structure, illustrations of superb quality and a format that is closer to that of the traditional novel than to the comic are the characteristics of the line we are introducing.

FRANKENSTEIN

Traumatized by the death of his mother, Victor Frankenstein becomes obsessed with the study of natural science and medicine and the idea of creating a more intelligent human being, possessing perfect health and long life. During his time at university he delves deep into cemeteries, opens tombs and studies the corpses to acquire the knowledge that will allow him to give life to a being created out of lifeless matter. But the creature turns out deformed and monstrous, and Victor abandons it to its fate…

Graphic Novel

Contemporary Works.

Children and Young Readers.

In contrast to the Classics, the text in this line is youthful, with fresh, modern themes; influenced by new tendencies in literature and cinema.

We have also decided to go into literature for children and young people, to appeal to younger readers, respecting the standards of the collection while offering a type of illustration and narrative style more suitable for this audience.

CROW’S CRADLE

TALES TO KEEP YOU AWAKE

Crow’s Cradle is a novel that touches the most passionate themes of human experience: love, life and death. In it, the concepts of magic realism are reinterpreted, the line between life and death diffused and the characters subject to an environment that shapes their destiny. And all this takes us back to Don Quixote, to the madness of letters, to fantasy and how it mixes with reality.

Seven horror stories by seven acclaimed authors. This book opens the door to the world of extraordinary events and amazing experiences the grand masters of horror literature wrote about. The unknown, ghosts, inexplicable occurrences, vampires and other evil creatures are major figures in the most terrible nightmares, stories set down so that they will never be forgotten and that make you tremble with fear.
