Baird,David M.
Autumn leaves dry in the sun, curling to make endless abstract patterns of curved surfaces and shadows. Or are they leaves? A closer look with Dr David M Baird reveals not leaves but layers of mud, which have shrunk into leaf-like shapes as they dried. Baird's amazing photographs show that intriguing patterns and textures are all around us. In "Beauty in the Rocks" the esteemed geologist, writer and poet takes readers on a photographic journey around the globe, finding beauty and form in settings as exotic as the Galapagos and as close to home as Yoho National Park. His intense, artistic images and accompanying text give mood and meaning to the changing earth and encourage readers to observe carefully the world around them, recognise what they see and understand how it came to be. From the hexagonal 'organ pipe' patterns in Northern Ireland's Giant's Causeway to the 'hoodoos' in Yoho National Park to the wrinkled surface skin of cooled liquid lava on James Island in the Galapagos, the wonders captured in this book will engage and enlighten anyone with an interest in the natural world. 144pp.

Fuchs,Daniel and Geo
Text in English,French and German.Case is damaged,top rear slipcase dented,and slightly scuffed but otherwise very good.This book offers an unprecedented documentation of our era's most famous people, including artists, photographers, designers, creators of culture, musicians, actors and architects. Each of these people was present with his or her full energy and enthusiasm when Daniel and Geo Fuchs used a box-like Polaroid camera, which had originally been developed for eye doctors, to produce these creative highlights. The beginning of each session was devoted to the project of taking an extreme close-up of the celebrity's eye. The next step was to stage a second image, which usually integrated the first portrait of the person's eye. The resultant photographic artworks are every bit as diverse as are the personalities of the photographed individuals. These portraits accurately reflect the many facets of life: from gorgeous and aesthetic, through crazy and shrill, to desolate and thought-provoking. A representative collection of these fascinating photos is available now in this large-format photo book. Book and slipcase.Scuffed/dent in top of slipcase Text in English, German and French.
