Gardening

Astonishing, harmonious, filled with exemplary ideas and inspirations

Ursel Borstell, Christa Hasselhorst

A Garden for all Seasons [Ein Garten für alle Jahreszeiten] Artistic, inspiring, surprising Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt 96 pages 100 colour illustrations Format 19,5 x 25,5 cm August 2010

Specialising in garden photography since 1990, she is one of the most sought-after garden photographers in Germany.

She is the author of several books, and leads tours of Berlin's and Potsdam's private and public gardens.

Whoever thinks that a garden can be enjoyed only from spring to fall will discover in this book that the opposite is true. The garden here, in the raw region of Osnabruck Land in Germany's lower Saxony, is not blessed with some particularly favourable climate. But its gardener has designed her blossoming kingdom in a manner as individual as it is tasteful, with many innovative ideas and unusual combinations of plants. She outwits autumn with ingenious combinations of perennials, bulbs, herbs, and vegetables and enacts atmospheric paintings of green, silver, and her beloved violet. Even in otherwise dreary winter, shaped hedges and woody plants create a scaffolding for impressive sculptures along with evergreen plants. Numerous seating places ranging from the conservatory to pleasurable gatherings underneath ancient trees extend the season. Also available:

With the help of the right lighting, these “interior spaces without roofs” can create a stimulating expansion of architecture and of urban and domestic life, especially at night. Using contemporary examples, lighting-planner Fabian Maier presents a wide range of design possibilities, the lighting techniques required to achieve them, various kinds of products, and the effects that can be created with them. Private houses with roof patios, front yards, and gardens of every size are introduced as well as examples of successful open-air architecture. The author explains the tools of the lighting planner such as visualization and light refractions, and provides information on products and how to solve potential problems. Also available:

The perfect guidebook for your own economical home

Thomas Drexel

New Houses on a Budget [Neue Low-Budget-Häuser] Building for under 225,000 euros Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt 160 pages 180 colour illustrations Format 21,5 x 28,0 cm September 2010

Thomas Drexel worked in an architect’s studio for several years and now writes on the subject of building, renovating, interior design and decorating, as well as photographing fine examples of architecture.

Is it even possible to build a house well and also economically? This frequent question can be answered with an emphatic yes, if you go about your construction project as carefully as the examples in this book do. Building your house economically can only succeed with a detailed plan for realizing the building project, a plan that is that is consistent and followed carefully. For each project in the book, the total costs remain under 225,000 euros—from excavation of the foundation pit to the final stroke of the paintbrush, including all work, fees, additional costs, and value added tax. The examples presented here are not “small cottages” but fullfledged single-family homes, and some of them even high-energyefficiency homes such as the KfW- certified energy saving houses. • With detailed information on cost-saving construction, detailed dating information for construction, planning and reference addresses Also available:

Highly up-to-date in uncertain economic times

Albert Ringlstetter

An architecturallydesigned house at a fixed price [Ein individuelles Architektenhaus zum Festpreis] Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt 144 pages 120 colour illustrations Format 17,0 x 24,0 cm November 2010

Albert Ringlstetter, architect, studied at the University of Technology in Munich, and has had his own office since, specializing in houses built in brick; he is the author of several popular guidebooks for clients and architects.

Whoever goes to an architect expects a good and individuallydesigned plan for their house. But a realistic estimate of costs is just as important, paving the way to a clearly-defined fixed price. What use is the most beautiful home when the client is massively in debt afterwards? The author presents the planning tools with which an architect, in close consultation with the client, can really build according to a fixed price—why accept design compromises with building developers? • Concepts proven in the author's practice

Building in a group: Living ideas for the Future

Christoph Gunßer, Theo Peter

building together [miteinander bauen] Architecture for good neighbors, building groups, cooperatives Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt 144 pages 220 colour illustrations Format 21,5 x 28,0 cm October 2010

Christoph Gunßer, born in 1963, is a freelance specialist author with a focus on sustainable planning and building. He studied architecture and after several years as a practicing architect became academic assistant at the institute for city planning, housing, and regional planning at the University of Hannover. From 1992 to 1997 he was editor of db. Theo Peter, born in 1948, is a banker and director of the network BauZEIT. For twentyfive years he has been occupied with sustainable, climate-friendly housing construction with good design, construction qualities, and alternative financing. His projects have been distinguished with several architectural and environmental awards.

Building in a group: In building their own four walls, more and more people are choosing new and unconventional paths. By building a house together with like-minded people, it is possible not only to save money, but to create a living environment that is tailored to your individual needs much more closely than the usual housing offerings. Architects are often involved in the planning: inspiring and moderating construction groups is an exciting, challenging task, and offers a promising sphere of activity. The receptiveness to new ideas becomes mirrored in the architecture; this is why houses built by cooperatives are frequently buildings with remarkable innovations in terms of design, ecology, and energy balance. Christoph Gunßer and Theo Peter, versed architectural journalist and experienced initiator of group building projects, introduce around twenty new houses and residential spaces in the text and descriptive photos and drawings, and provide valuable information for planning and realization. • Valuable ideas for planning and practice • Selected collection of projects: project organization, design, ecology, and the energy footprint of the houses

Johannes Kottjé

55 Staircases for Residential Buildings [55 Treppen für Wohnhäuser] Materials - Construction – Spatial Effects Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt 128 pages 165 colour illustrations Format 17,0 x 24,0 cm September 2010

Often located centrally in modern architecture, staircases can create a sculptural effect, or become practical components of the interior architecture when they serve as decorative room-dividers or for the storage of countless objects. The book shows fifty-five staircases, ranging from intentionally simple wooden stairs to multifunctional stairway-furniture, from the space-saving stairway to the imposing, apparently floating design object. • Fifty-five stairways in a great variety of materials and constructions • An extensive group of examples, helpful for communication between clients, architects, and craftsmen • All project include photos of the rooms, explanations, and technical information Also available:

Bikes and birds – a portrait of England's Rocker subculture

Horst A. Friedrichs Or Glory [Or Glory] 21st century rockers Prestel Verlag 176 pages 60 b/w illustrations, 100 colour illustrations Format 19,3 x 27 cm July 2010

English edition available

Horst Friedrichs’ photographs have appeared in Stern, The Independent, and The New York Times. He is the author of I’m One: 21st Century Mods (Prestel). He lives in London.

With their tattoos, leather jackets, slicked-back hair, and beloved British motorbikes—BSAs, Triumphs, Nortons, and Royal Enfields— Rockers are the nemesis and antithesis of the fastidiously groomed Mods. Elvis, James Dean, and Marlon Brando made rocker style synonymous with rebellion, sparking a global cult. Friedrichs follows the British rocker tribe as its members congregate in parking lots, pubs, cafes, dance and pool halls, as well as huge gatherings at Jacks Hill and the Ace Café. Alternating between rich, vibrant colour and gritty black and white, these photographs capture a spirit of unapologetic defiance in clothing as well as attitude, every bit as strong today as it was sixty years ago. Trenchant and revealing commentary from Friedrichs’ subjects sheds light on the impulses, yearnings, and motivations of this enduring international rebel chic subculture. Also available:

Prestel Verlag 176 pages 250 colour illustrations Format 23 x 28 August 2010

For as long as we’ve been dressing ourselves, we’ve been adorning ourselves with embellishments for ears, hands, wrists, waist and fingers. And as fashion trends evolve, so do trends in jewelry. Here jewelry expert Carol Woolton demonstrates how the worlds of fashion and jewelry have become increasingly integrated over the last century. From the corset-bound silhouettes of the turn of the century, with their elegant drop earrings and delicate chokers, to the free-flowing kaftans of the 1970s, adorned with chunky, earthy bangles and beads— major trends and designers are featured in double-page spreads that offer endlessly fascinating and informative texts and illustrations. Profiles of icons from Coco Chanel and Harry Winston to Princess Diana and Michelle Obama reveal the interplay of personality and history in the world of fashion. And as jewelry from Chanel, Boucheron, Van Cleef & Arpels and others was shown for the first time alongside haute couture in this year’s Paris Fashion Week, Woolton explores how brands have made the most of this trend. Gorgeous photography from the archives of Condé Nast, Sotheby’s, and many fine jewelers bring precious metal and twinkling gems to glorious life on the pages of this book.

Fred Astaire and Bryan Ferry, Truman Capote and Che Guevara, George Clooney and Boy George all find a place in this fun and fascinating exploration of what makes a man into an icon. From Oscar Wilde’s penchant for velvet to Don Johnson’s Miami style, the cool aloofness of Johnny Depp and Kurt Cobain, or the characters of Ziggy Stardust and James Bond— all are featured in double page spreads with glossy full colour pictures and Simon Werle’s acute observations, anecdotes, and historical insight.

Ralph Erdenberger

The Secret Files of Vincent van Gogh [Geheimakte Vincent van Gogh] Volume 1 Prestel Verlag 112 pages Format 16.0 x 23.5 cm September 2010 10 plus

Ralph Erdenberger is a freelance journalist for the WDR and other ARD radio stations. Among other projects, he works for the children's radio programme Lilipuz and the historical series Zeitzeichen. In Prestel's series Bilder im Ohr he set artworks from famous museums to sound for children.

The art detective investigates: He has to find out about this mysterious Vincent van Gogh, on whom Theo is supposed to do a school presentation. He starts out on the trail of the famous artist.
