<p>Imagine waking up one day to discover that you have forgotten everything about your life. Your only link with the past, your only hope for the future, is your identical twin.</p><p>Now imagine, years later, discovering that your twin had not told you the whole truth about your childhood, your family, and the forces that had shaped you. Why the secrets? Why the silences? You have no choice but to begin again.</p><p>This has been Alex's reality: a world where memories are just the stories people tell you, where fact and fiction are impossible to distinguish. With dogged courage he has spent years hunting for the truth about his hidden past and his remarkable family. His quest to understand his true identity has revealed shocking betrayals and a secret tragedy, extraordinary triumph over crippling adversity and, above all, redemption founded on brotherly love.</p><p>Marcus his twin brother has sometimes been a reluctant companion on this journey, but for him too it has led to staggering revelations and ultimately the shedding of impossible burdens. </p><p>Their story spans continents and eras, from 1950s debutantes and high society in the Home Counties to a remote island in the Pacific and 90s raves. Disturbing, funny, heart-breaking and affirming, Alex and Marcus's determination to rebuild their lives makes us look afresh at how we choose to tell our stories.</p>

We can access any location on Earth with a simple click on our computer or cell phone. This wasn鈥檛 always the case, but it was always a desire, for man has continually sought to understand the extent of the Earth and his place on it. While this is not a treatise on the history of cartography, it will serve to show the vital importance of maps and the little known, but extraordinary accomplishments of Leonardo da Vinci as a Renaissance cartographer. Since many examples of his maps survive today, (with an extensive collection in the Royal Collection Library at Windsor Castle), we can appreciate not only his skill, but the instruments he invented to achieve nearly perfect accuracy in his measurements. He melded his knowledge of geology, engineering, surveying, hydrology, and of course art to revolutionize cartography. We can see his innovations on every map we use today and can even name him the inventor of the Google Map.

Anecdotal, funny, frank, <i>POPism</i> is Warhol鈥檚 personal view of the Pop phenomenon in New York in the 1960s and a look back at the relationships that made up the scene at the Factory, including his rela顱tionship with Edie Sedgewick, focus of the film <i>Factory Girl.</i> In the detached, back-fence gossip style he was famous for, Warhol tells all鈥攖he ultimate inside story of a decade of cultural revolution.

Over the course of his 20-year career, Martin Kippenberger (1953-1997) cast himself alternately as hard-drinking carouser and confrontational art-world jester, thrusting these personae to the forefront of his prodigious creativity. He was also very much a player in the international art world of the 1970s right up until his death in 1997, commissioning work from artists such as Jeff Koons and Mike Kelley, and acting as unofficial ringleader to a generation of German artists. Written by the artist's sister, Susanne Kippenberger, this first English-language biography draws both from personal memories of their shared childhood and exhaustive interviews with Kippenberger's extended family of friends and colleagues in the art world. Kippenberger gives insight into the psychology and drive behind this playful and provocative artist.<b>This is the ebook edition of <i>Kippenberger</i>, originally published in print form in January 2012.<p></p></b>

They embrace not only art but also architecture, town planning, engineering, naval warfare, music, medicine, mathematics, science, and philosophy. The notebooks鈥攁 treasure trove of unparalleled ingenuity, curiosity, and creative energy鈥攈ave inspired readers for centuries. <i>The Da Vinci Notebooks </i>is the perfect introduction to the mysteries of a master artist.

Working with the full cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Naifeh and Smith have accessed a wealth of previously untapped materials to bring a crucial understanding to the larger-than-life mythology of this great artist: his early struggles to find his place in the world; his intense relationship with his brother Theo; and his move to Provence, where he painted some of the best-loved works in Western art. The authors also shed new light on many unexplored aspects of Van Gogh鈥檚 inner world: his erratic and tumultuous romantic life; his bouts of depression and mental illness; and the cloudy circumstances surrounding his death at the age of thirty-seven.<br /> 聽<br /> Though countless books have been written about Van Gogh, no serious, ambitious examination of his life has been attempted in more than seventy years. Naifeh and Smith have re-created Van Gogh鈥檚 life with an astounding vividness and psychological acuity that bring a completely new and sympathetic understanding to this unique artistic genius.<br /><b><br />NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY聽<i>The New York Times Book Review聽</i>鈥⒙?lt;i>The Washington Post聽</i>鈥⒙?lt;i>The Wall Street Journal聽</i>鈥⒙?lt;i>San Francisco Chronicle聽</i>鈥?NPR 鈥⒙?lt;i>The Economist聽</i>鈥⒙?lt;i>Newsday聽</i>鈥?BookReporter聽</b><br /><br />鈥淚n their magisterial new biography,聽<i>Van Gogh: The Life,聽</i>Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith provide a guided tour through the personal world and work of that Dutch painter, shining a bright light on the evolution of his art. . . .

<b>From a cinematic grand master, 鈥渙ne of the most readable books of movie criticism, and one of the most instructive鈥?(<i>American Film Institute</i>).</b><br /> 聽<br /> An icon. A rebel. A legend. The films of Fran莽ois Truffaut defined an exhilarating new form of cinema for moviegoers the world over. But before Truffaut became a great director, he was a critic who stood at the vanguard, pioneering an innovative way to view movies and to write about the cinematic arts. Now, for the first time in eBook, the legendary director shares his own words, as one of the most influential filmmakers of all time examines the art of movie-making through engaging and deeply personal reviews about the movies he loves. Truffaut writes extensively about his heroes, from Hitchcock to Welles, Chaplin to Renoir, Bu帽uel to Bergman, Clouzot to Cocteau, Capra to Hawks, Guitry to Fellini, sharing analysis and insight as to what made them film legends, and how their work led Truffaut and his fellow directors into classics like <i>The 400 Blows</i>, <i>Jules and Jim</i>, and the French New Wave movement.<br /> 聽<br /> Articulate and candid, <i>The Films in My Life</i> is for everyone who has sat in a dark movie theater and dreamed.<br /> 聽<br /> 鈥淭ruffaut brings the same intelligence and grace to the printed page that he projects onto the screen. <i>The Films in My Life</i> provides a rare knowledgeable look at movies and moviemaking.鈥?鈥?lt;i>Newsday</i>

<b>Fran莽oise Gilot's candid memoir remains the most revealing portrait of Picasso written, and gives fascinating insight into the intense and creative life shared by two modern artists.</b><br /><br />Fran莽oise Gilot was in her early twenties when she met the sixty-one-year-old Pablo Picasso in 1943. Brought up in a well-to-do upper-middle-class family, who had sent her to Cambridge and the Sorbonne and hoped that she would go into law, the young woman defied their wishes and set her sights on being an artist. Her introduction to Picasso led to a friendship, a love affair, and a relationship of ten years, during which Gilot gave birth to Picasso鈥檚 two children, Paloma and Claude. Gilot was one of Picasso鈥檚 muses; she was also very much her own woman, determined to make herself into the remarkable painter she did indeed become.<br /><br /><i>Life with Picasso</i>, written with Carlton Lake and published in 1961, is about Picasso the artist and Picasso the man. We hear him talking about painting and sculpture, his life, his career, as well as other artists, both contemporaries and old masters. We glimpse Picasso in his many and volatile moods, dismissing his work, exultant over his work, entertaining his various superstitions, being an anxious father. But聽Life with Picasso聽is not only a portrait of a great artist at the height of his fame; it is also a picture of a talented young woman of exacting intelligence at the outset of her own notable career.
