Acc Distribution Porsche 959 Book
Acc Distribution Porsche 959 Book 

Porsche 959 has always been regarded as one of the most exceptional vehicles in automotive history: a technical marvel with its all-wheel drive, a refined biturbo engine, 450 PS and a top speed of 315 km/h - still breathtaking 30 years after its first roll-out. The idea behind this tour de force was to build a Porsche that fitted the new Group B regulations just established in 1983: the Group B Porsche. The regulations demanded just 200 vehicles for the homologation, that is why Porsche was able to turn the technological knowledge of that time into a super Porsche equally suitable for the race track and for rallies which was the intention of the new racing car series. Apart from the races, the homologation vehicles were also meant to go to private owners for the use in road traffic. The Porsche 959 excelled in all of the tasks. It won the murderous Paris-Dakar rally, prevailed in Le Mans as the first all-wheel drive racer against racers with more PS and delighted its customers with road performances never seen before. The surprising end of the Group B regulations, enforced by the motorsports authorities after deadly accidents at the World Rally Championship, ended the motorsports career of the 959 before it had really begun. But the about 300 vehicles that were built, still tell the story of a fascinating car that became a celebrated and precious icon over the last years. Jürgen Lewandowski witnessed the development of the Porsche 959 more than 30 years ago and describes the difficult birth of the super car including the three Paris-Dakar rallies and the Le Mans race. A fascinating boxed set with three volumes on different topics: technical data, history, and a large-format illustrated book that shows the 959 genesis including all derivatives and new photos of the most beautiful specimen. After 30 years, this comprehensive work presents even the minutest details, it comments on events in the past, and contemporary witnesses have their say - all in all it is a literary monument to the Porsche 959.

Assouline Gondwana
Assouline Gondwana 

Gondwana : The results of an expedition of Antarctica by Diane Tuft, Gondwana: Images of an Ancient Land features over 50 stunning images that capture Antarctica’s untouched splendor with colors, textures and compositions that verge on the surreal. Named for the megacontinent that once contained what is now Antarctica, this book represents a living reflection of millions of years of Earth’s history. Gaia : Guy Laliberté's documentation of his experience in space features his photographs of Earth as seen from the International Space Station. Captivated by the beauty of the surface of the Earth, Laliberté’s evocative photos show the colors and textures visible only 220 miles away. A stable subject and a moving photographer-the ISS is moving at 17,500 miles per hour (about 5 miles per second), doing 6 tours of the earth every 24 hours–made for truly original conditions. Using the Nikon D3S and Nikon D3X digital-SLR cameras, deserts resemble contemporary abstract paintings, cities rise up like mini-mountain ranges, and faces and figures are revealed in nature. Laliberté dedicated his personal spaceflight to raising awareness about water issues facing humankind, making his the first, in his own words, "poetic social mission" in space. Proceeds from book sales go to Laliberté’s One Drop Foundation, a non-profit organization created to fight poverty worldwide by ensuring that everyone across the planet has access to water, now and in the future. South Pole : Although it's a piece of history learned by every British student, the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913 remains an epic story unknown to many. In this ultimate showing of life and boundless bravery, Robert F. Scott and his five-man team battled the elements—traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies—in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory. Arriving at the South Pole on January 18, 1912, the adventurers were greeted by their worst nightmare: a Norwegian flag.

Acc Distribution Wild Horses Of Cumberland Island
Acc Distribution Wild Horses Of Cumberland Island 

A longtime favorite getaway for America's most influential families, Cumberland Island, off the Atlantic coast of Georgia, offers breathtaking white-sand beaches, rolling dunes, old-growth oak forests, and salt marsh tidal estuaries. At the center of it all is a population of horses that has thrived, untouched for generations, within this serene sanctuary. In Wild Horses of Cumberland Island, photographer Anouk Masson Krantz has captured the dramatic scenery and majestic horses as they have never been seen before. Her images show the remarkable animals in their naturally diverse ecosystems. A lone horse on a distant beach; four creatures peacefully grazing; a shy animal peering over its shoulder from a brushy thicket - Krantz's portfolio, built over the last decade, is an intimate reflection not only of Cumberland Island's exceptional beauty and spirited horses, but of the history and the safekeeping that have allowed both to flourish. Born and raised in France, Anouk Masson Krantz moved to the United States in the late 1990s. She studied photography at the International Center of Photography and has developed several notable bodies of work, including the wild horses of Cumberland Island. Krantz's work has appeared in prominent galleries and earned accolades from the International Photography Awards and International Monochrome Awards.

Acc Distribution Breaking Stones 1963-1965: A Band on the Brink of Superstardom
Acc Distribution Breaking Stones 1963-1965: A Band on the Brink of Superstardom 

* Promo codes do not apply to this product, due to the brand's request. This brilliant new book captures the youth, the times and the spirit of The Stones' formative early years. In July 1962, a group of young men played a gig at The Marquee Club on Oxford Street, London. They called themselves 'The Rollin' Stones' and little did they know they would soon be making music history. And documenting 1963-1965 were two young photographers just starting out in their careers. Terry O'Neill, aged just 25, had a few years' experience photographing musicians and knew that this group had the same magic as another British phenomenon that just recently started to chart, The Beatles. As the band was starting to record and tour, 19-year-old Gered Mankowitz came along in 1965. His first shoot, the now famous Mason's Yard session, was so fruitful, Gered was asked to tag along on tour to America. Between these two legendary photographers, they documented the band's beginnings and created these indelible images forever placed in music's consciousness. The photography throughout this book is embellished with various memoirs and interviews, celebrating the early days and giving an insight into what it must have felt like to go from a small club in Soho with no record deal to touring the world a few years later with a number one record.

Iggy & The Stooges: One Night at the Whiskey 1970
Iggy & The Stooges: One Night at the Whiskey 1970 

* Promo codes do not apply to this product, due to the brand's request. In May 1970, The Stooges were in the middle of recording their celebrated album, Fun House at Elektra Records Recording Studio in Los Angeles. That same month, they appeared at the Whisky a Go-Go on Sunset Boulevard for two incredible nights. Ed Caraeff, a new rock photographer who had burst onto the scene three years prior with his now-iconic image of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar onstage at Monterey, happened to be in that crowd, and took a plethora of wonderful pictures. Only a few stills from that phenomenal gig were ever reproduced. Most famously, one was used on the cover of Fun House. The rest were filed away. Until now. Ed Caraeff's coverage of this monumental moment is reprinted here for the first time in book form. He not only captures the energy, madness and raw power of Iggy Pop's performance, but also the preceding minutes before the band stepped onto stage and made history. Along with images and contact sheets, original interviews shed new light on that unforgettable night. Interviewed by pop-culture historian Jennifer Otter Bickerdike, names include Jac Holzman, Head of Elektra Records during the recording of Fun House; Mikael Maglieri, son of Mario Maglieri, owner of the Whisky a Go-Go when The Stooges played in 1970; Danny Fields, a DJ/publicist credited for signing MC5 and The Stooges; and Jeff Gold, music historian and noted Iggy Pop biographer. A tribute to the band that rocked the world, Iggy & The Stooges: One Night at the Whisky, 1970 will revolutionise your view of music.

Acc Distribution Artisans of Israel: Transcending Tradition 

Artisans of Israel is a very special book that uniquely compiles artists and their work in the fields of metalwork and jewelry, ceramics, textiles, paper, and wood. Author Lynn Holstein is in search of a national identity in the artisanry of the still young country - and she finds it in the unifying pursuit for innovation. Forty artists, including Jews, Muslims and Christians, tell their stories and show, in five different trades, how emancipation can be promoted through creativity. Working with one's hands stands unfailingly at the centre of this reflection. From the hybrid of cultural and religious backgrounds emerges a unique compilation that brings together the fields of metalwork and jewellery, ceramics, textiles, paper and wood. This compilation portrays a sensitive and inspiring portrait of Israel and its inhabitants. Text is available in English, Hebrew, and Arabic.

Jean Royere
Jean Royere 

By the age of 30 Jean Royère had already established his brilliant career as a decorator. After eschewing the functionalism so in vogue in the 1930s, in 1939, at the Salon des artistes Décorateurs, he presented a boudoir which provocatively marked the return of ornament. A keen observer of contemporary design, Royère was an early discoverer of the Scandinavian and Italian designers - especially Alvar Aalto and Gio Ponti - and their new forms freely associating a set of ornaments, and employed them in variations of extreme virtuosity. From 1931 to 1972, Royère completed over a thousand projects around the globe, from the interior design of the Cité ouvrière d'Aplemont, a workers' housing development in northern France, to the decoration of the palace of the shah of Iran, creating a style evoking a desire for freedom and lightness that would leave its mark on an entire era and many of his contemporary designers. His furniture and objects, notably his emblematic armchairs and Ours sofas, are now the passionate focus of collectors of art and design around the world. Prefaced by Jean-Louis Gaillemin, JEAN ROYERE enables readers to discover and enrich their knowledge of little-known aspects of Jean Royère's oeuvre, largely thanks to some one hundred new illustrations. For his PhD in art history, Pierre-Emmanuel Martinivier wrote a thesis on the life and work of the decorator Jean-Michel Frank, which was published by Editions Norma in 2006. A specialist in decorative arts of the twentieth century, he participated in several exhibitions, including "Jean Royere, Decorator in Paris," at the museum of decorative Arts in Paris. A recognized expert on the art market, he is also head of the Art of the Twentieth Century department at Christie's since 2013. He is the author of Max Ingrand, Norma, 2009.

Acc Distribution Decorators of the 1960s and 1970s 

Composed of a long introduction that provides a synoptic view and 32 monographs that describe its many faces, "Decorators of the 1960s and 1970s" invites the reader to discover an exceptionally creative period and revels in an abundant iconography. The 1960s and 1970s marked a sharp turning point in the history of decoration and furniture. Until that point, the world was confined to national and elitist forms of expression. At the beginning of the 1960s, the sector took its inspiration from Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Italian and French decoration. Genres were combined in a frenzied desire to live in symbiosis with one's time. The progress of technology strengthened the conviction that the individual had unlimited freedom and aroused the desire to inhabit in a new manner. Forms became rounder, furniture was in sync with a warm, playful, and anticonformist universe. Colors and decorative motifs took on the brilliance and fantasies of Pop Art and psychedelia. The living environment was transformed into a waking dream in which luxurious furniture in original materials and surprising objects were mixed, associated, for the first time, with early furniture. The end of the 1970s marked the advent of a period in which beauty and classic elegance gave way to a host of expressions that were unclassifiable and rejected any hierarchy. The postmodern period had arrived.

Remy Meijers: Simply Elegant
Remy Meijers: Simply Elegant 

Interior architect Remy Meijers became famous for his ability to create balance in the most diverse spaces. The starting point of his work is a holistic approach in which all elements are perfectly matched. This approach creates interiors that exude a pleasant sense of repose, in all their simplicity. A good example is the prestigious 5-star hotel The Dylan in Amsterdam. But the estates, mansions, villas, cottages, commercial and exhibition spaces designed by Meijers' capable hands also reflect his vision of interior architecture. As part of his overall vision, Remy Meijers usually designs the furniture and accessories himself, both for his own collection and for a number of collections from leading brands. This book shows his most recent projects.
