On Having No Head
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

´Reason and imagination and all mental chatter died down... I forgot my name, my humanness, my thingness, all that could be called me or mine. Past and future dropped away... Lighter than air, clearer than glass, altogether released from myself, I was nowhere around.´ Thus Douglas Harding describes his first experience of headlessness, or no self. First published in 1961, this is a classic work which conveys the experience that mystics of all times have tried to put words to.

For a brief moment, as Montalbano was looking, a bright blade of light flashed from the loft and shone straight in his eyes. Despite the sunglasses, he instinctively shut his eyes and when he reopened them the light was gone . . . When a gentleman arrives at Montalbano´s station to report an armed robbery on his wife that ended with a kiss, the inspector´s suspicions are aroused. As he delves deeper into the case, Montalbano finds that none of the witnesses´ stories are adding up, and he can´t help but feel that they´re not meant to. When a body turns up showing all the signs of a mafia hit, the inspector knows he must excavate the truth from what he is being led to believe. Meanwhile there´s a case that keeps winding its way back to Montalbano´s office. A locked door has suddenly appeared on a farmer´s disused shed, and then, just as quickly, the door disappears. The anti-terrorist police soon intervene, but why are they so keen to keep this away from the inspector? And why does he sense that this case is connected to him somehow? With deceit at every turn and a distraction of the heart taking over his head, Inspector Montalbano must focus if he is ever going to solve this mystery. Praise for the Inspector Montalbano series ´A magnificent series of novels´ Sunday Times ´Quirky characters, crisp dialogue, bright storytelling - and Salvo Montalbano, one of the most engaging protagonists in detective fiction´ USA Today

The Artist´s Complete Guide To Drawing The Head
23,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this innovative guide, master art instructor William Maughan demonstrates how to create a realistic human likeness by using the classic and highly accurate modeling technique of chiaroscuro (Italian for ´´light and dark?) developed by Leonardo da Vinci during the High Renaissance. Maughan first introduces readers to the basics of this centuries-old technique, showing how to analyze form, light, and shadow; use dark pencil, white pencil, and toned paper to create a full range of values; use the elements of design to enhance a likeness; and capture a sitter´s gestures and proportions. He then demonstrates, step by step, how to draw each facial feature, develop visual awareness, and render the head in color with soft pastels.

Travel Light, Move Fast
13,99 € *

From bestselling author Alexandra Fuller, the utterly original story of her father, Tim Fuller, and a deeply felt tribute to a life well lived Six months before he died in Budapest, Tim Fuller turned to his daughter: ´´Let me tell you the secret to life right now, in case I suddenly give up the ghost.´´ Then he lit his pipe and stroked his dog Harry´s head. Harry put his paw on Dad´s lap and they sat there, the two of them, one man and his dog, keepers to the secret of life. ´´Well?´´ she said. ´´Nothing comes to mind, quite honestly, Bobo,´´ he said, with some surprise. ´´Now that I think about it, maybe there isn´t a secret to life. It´s just what it is, right under your nose. What do you think, Harry?´´ Harry gave Dad a look of utter agreement. He was a very superior dog. ´´Well, there you have it,´´ Dad said. After her father´s sudden death, Alexandra Fuller realizes that if she is going to weather his loss, she will need to become the parts of him she misses most. So begins Travel Light, Move Fast, the unforgettable story of Tim Fuller, a self-exiled black sheep who moved to Africa to fight in the Rhodesian Bush War before settling as a banana farmer in Zambia. A man who preferred chaos to predictability, to revel in promise rather than wallow in regret, and who was more afraid of becoming bored than of getting lost, he taught his daughters to live as if everything needed to happen all together, all at once-or not at all. Now, in the wake of his death, Fuller internalizes his lessons with clear eyes and celebrates a man who swallowed life whole. A master of time and memory, Fuller moves seamlessly between the days and months following her father´s death, as she and her mother return to his farm with his ashes and contend with his overwhelming absence, and her childhood spent running after him in southern and central Africa. Writing with reverent irreverence of the rollicking grand misadventures of her mother and father, bursting with pandemonium and tragedy, Fuller takes their insatiable appetite for life to heart. Here, in Fuller´s Africa, is a story of joy, resilience, and vitality, from one of our finest writers.
