Okładka książki Światotwórstwo w fantastyce

49,00 zł 36,01 zł


Dlaczego w dziesięć lat po rozpoczęciu rekordowej zbiórki na realizację gry Squadron 42, opiewającej na ponad dwieście milionów dolarów, powstała nie gra, lecz skomplikowany świat Star Citizen, nazywany przez twórcę pierwszoosobowym uniwersum (first-person universe)? Jak to się dzieje, że znając fabułę siedmioksięgu Harry Potter lub pamiętając większość odcinków Gry o tron, decydujemy się i tak powracać do kreowanych w nich światów kosztem ponownego przyswajania dobrze już zapoznanych historii? Dlaczego w niespełna dziesięć lat powstało gigantyczne Marvel Cinematic Universe, podczas gdy pięć razy więcej czasu zajęło sfilmowanie dotychczasowych przygód Jamesa Bonda? Wreszcie, czym różni się opowiadanie historii światotwórczych i imersywnych od tych angażujących tylko ze względu na porywającą fabułę i celne portrety psychologiczne postaci? Książka Światotwórstwo w fantastyce, będąca drugą na świecie (po Building Imaginary Worlds Marka J.P. Wolfa) i pierwszą w Polsce teoretyczną monografią sztuki światotwórczej, odpowiada na wszystkie te pytania, adresując równocześnie te kwestie, które pomijane były dotychczas w polskich i światowych badaniach nad fantastyką i kulturą popularną.Monografia opatrzona jest również słownikiem zbierającym całość opracowanej przez autora terminologii z zakresu badań nad światotwórstwem.

Okładka książki Kanony śmierci
nowość

69,00 zł 53,44 zł


Wariacje goldbergowskie są jednym z najdoskonalszych wcieleń dojrzałego myślenia muzycznego Jana Sebastiana Bacha. Chodzi tu o myślenie muzyczne charakterystyczne szczególnie dla ostatniego okresu jego twórczości, kiedy związał się z Societät der musicalischen Wissenschaften, ekskluzywną grupą teoretyków i praktyków muzyki, którzy wcielali w życie pitagorejską i teologiczno-metafizyczną koncepcję muzyki. To właśnie komponowanie Wariacji goldbergowskich zaczęło ten niezwykły czas w życiu kantora z Lipska, gdy tworzył on – trudno nie zgodzić się z Malcolmem Boydem – „najbardziej wizjonerską i głęboką muzykę, jaka kiedykolwiek została skomponowana”.

Okładka książki The Home Upgrade

The Home Upgrade looks beyond big budget projects and explores homes where the seemingly impossible has been achieved. Against a backdrop of growing cities and a changing approach to how we live, there are many reasons to refurbish a home. Our buildings must continue to evolve along with us—and that takes a little imagination. Societal shifts continue to impact our homes. People live longer, and often alone. Homes will need to be updated to accommodate a changing climate. Resourcefulness will also play a role in how we carve out living spaces in our cramped cities. Today’s population living in cities is 3.9 billion, and it’s anticipated to grow to 6.34 billion over the next 25 years. The vast majority of the planet’s population now lives in an urban environment, which is a first in human history. These numbers are only going to grow, and increasingly this means not bulldozing and building on top of the rubble, but working with what we have. The Home Upgrade looks beyond big budget projects and explores homes where the seemingly impossible has been achieved. For architects striking out on their own, such projects offer the opportunity to flex their muscles and lead a project for the first time. A home in Brooklyn, featured in the book, was refurbished after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the Eastern Seaboard in 2012. The living space was raised above the high-water line, an answer to the grim fact that once-in-a-generation occurrences are a new reality. Historic conversions celebrate the unexpected relationship between old and new, and adaptive reuse projects reinvent the buildings around us. Exploring the most extraordinary transformations of recent years by leading studios, The Home Upgrade is an exhilarating look at the boundless possibilities of reimagining a home.

Okładka książki Key Interiors since 1900

179,00 zł 152,15 zł

Each chapter comprises a selection of case studies in chronological order. 52 key examples dating from 1900 to the present are explored in terms of context, concept, organization and detail and are illustrated with photographs, plans, sections, concept drawings and sketches. This unique history will be invaluable for students of interior architecture and design seeking a survey tailored especially for them, as well as appealing to interested general readers.
Okładka książki Ill be Watching You Inside the Police 1980-83

In the early 1980s, The Police went on tour accompanied by a photographer who documented the band behind the scenes in a series of candid and striking black and white photos. This talented photographer also happened to be the band's guitarist, Andy Summers. Yes, it's true - the man responsible for the guitar lick from "Every Breath You Take" was not only the backbone of one of the most popular bands of all time, he also possessed a visual gift for composition and mood that allowed him to capture the spirit of The Police better than anyone else could have.This book, somewhere between photojournalism and an illustrated diary, follows The Police around the globe between 1980 and 1983. From the American West to Australia to Japan, Summers recorded not only the band members rehearsing and partying - the proverbial sex, drugs, and rock and roll - he also photographed fans, landscapes, still lifes, and passersby in a reportage style reminiscent of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank. Containing over 600 photos and filled with diary-style entries, "I'll Be Watching You" is a sumptuous volume beating with musical energy, nostalgia, and atmospheric beauty. It is a must for photo buffs and Police fans alike. It contains over 600 photographs personally selected from the photographer's archive of over 25,000 thousand negatives (1980-83). Most photos are previously unpublished, and many of them have never even been printed prior to this project. Highlights include: rehearsals and recording sessions with band-mates; Sting and Stewart Copeland; exclusive back-stage and on-stage footage from concerts including Plaza de Toros (Barcelona, 1980), Budokan (Tokyo, 1981), Wembley Stadium (London, 1981), and Shea Stadium (New York, 1983); inside the tour busses, limousines, helicopters, private planes, parties, and hotel rooms; behind the scenes on music video shoots, at press conferences, and in-store appearances; life on the road with other bands including The Go-Go's, XTC, and The B-52's; and rain-soaked train windows, trashed hotel rooms, island retreats, over-capacity stadiums, and thousands of screaming, singing, sobbing, fans.
