Amandes Ameres: Bitter Almonds Bittere Mandeln
Amandes Ameres (Bitter Almonds) is a portfolio of vivid colour photographs that are characteristic of photographer and sculptor Jean-Marc Bustamante's photographic tableaux: intense yet contemplative cityscape images of the capital cities from around the globe, from Buenos Aires to Miami to Tel Aviv. A work of art in its own right, Amandes Ameres was launched in June 1997 at the international art event Documenta X in Kassel, Germany. This book marks Phaidon's first participation in this major and influential event. The volume signifies a highly original distillation of Bustamante's subtle outlook, both in its presentation and in the selection of images designed to illustrate the strikingly sculptural, painterly and symphonic aspects of his innovative and sensitive use of the camera. The compilation is cutting-edge in the context of contemporary visual art and how it is presented, displaying a style that is carefully suited to the atmosphere evoked by Bustamante.

The Lives of the Muses: Nine Women and the Artists They Inspired
To be a muse to a celebrated artist is surely one of the most flattering roles a person can have. But what is the life of a muse really like? In this spirited (and provocative) expose of nine women who fired the imaginations of some of the most inimitable artists and thinkers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Francine Prose draws on photographs, diaries, correspondence, memoirs, and original works of art that reveal the complexity of these artist-muse relationships and illustrate the muse in all her guises: as inspiration, angel, equal partner and, sometimes, monster. The nine muses are: Hester Thrale (Samuel Johnson), Alice Liddell (Lewis Carroll), Elizabeth Siddal (Dante Gabriel Rossetti). Lou-Andreas-Salome (Nietzsche, Rilke and Freud), Gala Dali (Salvador Dali), Lee Miller (Man Ray), Charis Weston (Edward Weston), Suzanne Farrell (George Balanchine) and Yoko Ono (John Lennon).

In Erganzung und Fortsetzung unserer bereits seit zwanzig Jahren im Gebrauch erprobten DREI- SPRACHIGEN Worterbucher - in Englisch, Deutsch und Franzosisch - bildet der vorliegende Band einen Teil einer neuen Serie in ZWEISPRACHIGER Anordnung. In diesen Neuausgaben ist bezuglich Sachbereich und Aufbau das bisherige, allseits bewahrte System beibehalten worden, welches in der besonderen Anordnung des Stoffes den hervorstechenden und unterscheidenden Wesensmerkmalen dient, namlich: Besonders leichtes und schnelles Auffinden eines Stichwortes in moglichst vielen fertig vorbereiteten Verbindungen und moglichst wirksamer Ausschluss von Ubersetzungsfehlern, besonders wenn zwischen mehr- fachen Bedeutungen desselben Stichwortes gewahlt werden muss. Mit der Neubearbeitung ist der Inhalt auf den neuesten Stand des Wortschatzes und der Wortbildungen gebracht worden. Unverandert geblieben ist das Hauptziel, namlich die Schaffung eines Werkes fur die Praxis und fur den Alltagsgebrauch. Ich danke hiermit meinen Mitarbeitern und Helfern in Genf, Bern und Greenwich, Connecticut. Ich erwahne mit besonderem Dank die Mitarbeit meines alten Freundes Alan Readett, Brussel, fur di~ vielen deutschen Fachausdrucke und deren englischen Aquivalente. die er zu diesem Band beigetragen ~.

Pliny's Catalogue of Culture: Art and Empire in the Natural History
One of the earliest surviving examples of 'art history', Pliny the Elder's 'chapters on art' form part of his encyclopaedic Natural History, completed shortly before its author died during the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. This important new work argues that the Natural History offers a sophisticated account of the world as empire, in which art as much as geography can be used to expound a Roman imperial agenda. Reuniting the 'chapters on art' with the rest of the Natural History, Sorcha Carey considers how the medium of the 'encyclopaedia' affects Pliny's presentation of art, and reveals how art is used to explore themes important to the work as a whole. Throughout, the author demonstrates that Pliny's 'chapters on art' are a profoundly Roman creation, offering an important insight into responses to art and culture under the early Roman empire.
