A More Exciting LifeOrdinær pris 229,00 kr
This is a guide to the more exciting life we know could be ours. It isn't about the outward things we might do: travel, parachute out of airplanes or learn a foreign language. This is a book of psychology and about how we can nurture a sense of inner liberation, accept our desires and aspirations and then have the courage to set ourselves free. Perhaps for too long we have resigned ourselves to things that aren't fair or necessary, we have felt too constricted (and perhaps unloved) to communicate well with others and the proper expansion of our characters has been sacrificed for the sake of compliance.

ANIMALS : Photographs That Make You ThinkOrdinær pris 169,00 kr
An innovative and insightful look at our relationship with animals in the age of the Anthropocene from bestselling author Henry Carroll with original images from an innovative array of contemporary photographersSee through the eyes of a new generation of photographers responding to the rapidly unfolding issues shaping our lives. In this series of small, revealing, and beautifully presented books, Henry Carroll, the bestselling photography writer of the last decade, considers the ideas behind images to present personal perspectives on climate change, race, sexuality, gender, faith, inequality, beauty, power, and the natural world. In this second book of the series, ANIMALS, Carroll deep-dives into an ecosystem of contemporary images to consider how we relate to animals in the Anthropocene.
His accessible analysis of emotive imagery suggests that our appreciation for some animals and disregard, or repulsion, for others is shaped by our own physicality as much as theirs. He shows how the conventions of natural history offer a very politicized understanding of fauna and how the role of animals as spiritual, cultural, and personal symbols can be an equally valid means of classification. Carroll reflects on the psychological power struggles infusing our daily interactions with animals and unpacks the photographers' visual insights relating to our treatment of animals, whether it's the way we pamper them as pets or consume them to excess.
In this diverse collection of arresting images and engaging text, Carroll regards the photographers as modern-day philosophers, original thinkers who show us how to fuse technique, concept, and imagination in order to pose intriguing questions about the animal kingdom and human nature. For both the creators and consumers of images, this timely book contains a treasure trove of meaningful visual reflections that will prompt you to rethink your relationship with animals both domestic and wild.

Antarctic Atlas : New Maps and Graphics That Tell the Story of A ContinentOrdinær pris 599,00 kr
A FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR 2020
One of the least-known places on the planet, the only continent on earth with no indigenous population, Antarctica is a world apart. From a leading cartographer with the British Antarctic Survey, this new collection of maps and data reveals Antarctica as we have never seen it before. This is not just a book of traditional maps.
It measures everything from the thickness of ice beneath our feet to the direction of ice flows. It maps volcanic lakes, mountain ranges the size of the Alps and gorges longer than the Grand Canyon, all hidden beneath the ice. It shows us how air bubbles trapped in ice tell us what the earth's atmosphere was like 750,000 years ago, proving the effects of greenhouse gases.
Colonies of emperor penguins abound around the coastline, and the journeys of individual seals around the continent and down to the sea bed in search of food have been intricately tracked and mapped. Twenty-nine nations have research stations in Antarctica and their unique architecture is laid out here, along with the challenges of surviving in Antarctica'sunforgiving environment. Antarctica is also the frontier of our fight against climate change.
If its ice melts, it will swamp almost every coastal city in the world. Antarctic Atlas illustrates the harsh beauty and magic of this mysterious continent, and shows how, far from being abstract, it has direct relevance to us all.

Hva gjør du om Norge blir rammet av en matvarekrise? Våren 2020 fikk vi en påminnelse om hvor fort en krise kan ramme oss.

Beredskapshagen viser deg, steg for steg, hvordan du går frem.

Bird: Exploring the Winged WorldOrdinær pris 649,00 kr
"The most glorious cornucopia celebrating our enduring love affair with birds - an uplifting and eye opening tribute to the way they enrich our lives." - Alan Titchmarsh MBE, British TV presenter, broadcaster, and gardener "Wonderfully illustrated." - Wall Street Journal Let your imagination take flight and celebrate the beauty and diversity of birds throughout art, science, history, and cultureThis visually stunning survey of birds, chronicling their scientific and popular appeal throughout the ages and around the world, showcases the remarkable diversity of species in the avian kingdom, from tiny hummingbirds to ostriches taller than humans, and icebound penguins to tropical macaws. With its content curated alongside an international panel of ornithologists, art historians, wildlife photographers, conservationists, and curators, this extraordinary book includes illustrations and artwork of all styles, with works by a diverse and often surprising range of creators from many different backgrounds, including: John James Audubon; Robert Clark; Mark Dion; Charley Harper; Barbara Kruger; Edward Lear; Ustad Mansur; John Ruskin; Joel Sartore; Sarah Stone; and Charles Frederick Tunnicliffe. Arranged in thoughtfully paired juxtapositions, it reveals how artists, illustrators, ornithologists, and photographers - from ancient Egypt to the present - have captured the spirit, likeness, character, and symbolism of birds.

CabinsOrdinær pris 279,00 kr
Ever since Henry David Thoreau's described his two years, two months, and two days of cabin existence at Walden Pond, Massachusetts in Walden, or, Life in the Woods (1854), the idea of a refuge dwelling has seduced the modern psyche. In the past decade, as our material existence and environmental footprint has grown exponentially, architects around the globe have become particularly interested in the possibilities of the minimal, low-impact, and isolated abode.This new TASCHEN title, combining insightful text, rich photography and bright, contemporary illustrations by Marie-Laure Cruschi, explores how this particular architectural type presents special opportunities for creative thinking. In eschewing excess, the cabin limits actual spatial intrusion to the bare essentials of living requirements, while in responding to its typically rustic setting, it foregrounds eco-friendly solutions.
As such, the cabin comes to showcase some of the most inventive and forward-looking practice of contemporary architecture, with Renzo Piano, Terunobu Fujimori, Tom Kundig and many fresh young professionals all embracing such distilled sanctuary spaces.The cabins selected for this publication emphasize the variety of the genre, both in terms of usage and geography. From an artist studio on the Suffolk coast in England to eco-home huts in the Western Ghats region of India, this survey is as exciting in its international reach as it is in its array of briefs, clients, and situations. Constant throughout, however, is architectural innovation, and an inspiring sense of contemplation and coexistence as people return to nature and to a less destructive model of being in the world.

Evergreen Architecture. Overgrown Buildings and Greener LivingOrdinær pris 599,00 kr
As more of the earth’s surface is swallowed up by the built environment, architects are increasingly advised to integrate urban flora and fauna into their designs. Whether developing green roofs, living walls, abundant indoor courtyards, or balconies that connect interior and exterior spaces, the urge to intertwine nature and architecture has never been more apparent.
Embracing this ubiquitous trend, Evergreen Architecture surveys a broad spectrum of residential, institutional, urban, and rural spaces. But as change occurs and solutions to the climate crisis are being integrated on the ground, many new questions are posed. How do residents keep moss-covered walls alive? How can a skyscraper uphold the weight of hundreds of trees?
Evergreen Architecture investigates this movement from the perspective of the architects leading the charge whilst offering diagrams and plans to help the reader understand how each building came together and how it intends to survive.

Flukten med Norges gullOrdinær pris 399,00 kr
9. april. Tyske soldater marsjerer oppover Karl Johan. Noen steinkast unna, ved Norges Bank, har den siste av 26 lastebiler med gull akkurat kjørt. Bankens gullbeholdning er livsviktig for landets handlefrihet i kampen mot nazistene.
I en hemmelig operasjon fraktes 49 tonn gull gjennom store deler av vårt langstrakte land. Første stopp er Lillehammer. Da tyskerne rykker nordover, må gullet hastig flyttes videre med spesialtog vestover. En tid sperrer tyske fallskjermsoldater jernbanelinjen. Gullet når Åndalsnes og Molde, før tyskerne bomber byene sønder og sammen. I fiskebåter fra Møre og Frøya fortsetter ferden nord til landets midlertidige hovedstad, Tromsø.
Mye gikk galt da tyskerne angrep. Men beredskapen rundt Norges gullbeholdning sviktet ikke. I Flukten med Norges gull går Asbjørn Jaklin tett på historiens handlekraftige personer: Ansatte i Norges Bank. 30 menige soldater, blant dem dikteren Nordahl Grieg. Politikere som Einar Gerhardsen, Oscar Torp – og Fredrik Haslund, gulltransportens modige leder. Og ikke minst hverdagshelter fra hele landet som bidro til at gulltransporten lyktes. Mot alle odds. Og med livet som innsats.

HokusaiOrdinær pris 229,00 kr
Meet the artist whose majestic breaking wave sent ripples across the world. Hokusai (1760–1849) is not only one of the giants of Japanese art and a legend of the Edo period, but also a founding father of Western modernism, whose prolific gamut of prints, illustrations, paintings, and beyond forms one of the most comprehensive oeuvres of ukiyo-e art and a benchmark of japonisme. His influence spread through Impressionism, Art Nouveau, and beyond, enrapturing the likes of Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, and Vincent van Gogh.
Hokusai was always a man on the move. He changed domicile more than 90 times during his lifetime and changed his own name through over 30 pseudonyms. In his art, he adopted the same restlessness, covering the complete spectrum of Japanese ukiyo-e, “pictures of the floating world”, from single-sheet prints of landscapes and actors to erotic books. In addition, he created album prints, illustrations for verse anthologies and historical novels, and surimono, which were privately issued prints for special occasions.
Hokusai’s print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, published between c. 1830 and 1834 is the artist’s most renowned work and, with its soaring peak through different seasons and from different vantage points, marked the towering summit of the Japanese landscape print. The series’ Under the Wave off Kanagawa, also known simply as The Great Wave, is one of the most recognized images of Japanese art in the world.
This TASCHEN introduction spans the length and breadth of Hokusai’s career with key pieces from his far-reaching portfolio. Through these meticulous, majestic works and series, we trace the variety of Hokusai’s subjects, from erotic books to historical novels, and the evolution of his vivid formalism and decisive delineation of space through color and line that would go on to liberate Western art from the constraints of its one-point perspective and unleash the modernist momentum.
About the series:
Born back in 1985, the Basic Art Series has evolved into the best-selling art book collection ever published. Each book in TASCHEN’s Basic Art series features:
- a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance
- a concise biography
- approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions

Into the Wild : The Story of the World's Greatest Wildlife PhotographyOrdinær pris 649,00 kr
An epic visual story of wildlife photography's pioneers and world firsts. From some of the very first pictures of wild lions and tigers on record and the first-ever underwater colour photograph, right up to the spectacular images from the wildest corners of the earth that modern-day technology allows, Into the Wild is an extraordinary collection of over 250 images and 150 years of our efforts to document the natural world. Now, more than ever, these are the photographs and stories that matter.
"Gemma Padley takes us on a fascinating journey through 150 years of the wildlife photography that has informed and delighted us. The text tells us not only about the images themselves, but describes how cameras gradually got faster shutter speeds, longer lenses, greater resolution and are now mostly digital. But it is the patience and endurance of the photographer who waits for hours or even days in tropical heat or arctic freeze to capture these special shots: taken at just the right moment in just the right light and from just the right angle. Into the Wild is a must-have coffee table book."

Let's Eat Italy!Ordinær pris 699,00 kr
“A fantastic read for foodies and a luscious culinary reference.”
From the same team that created Let’s Eat France! comes this celebration of Italian food in the form of an oversized, obsessively complete, visual feast of a book. With a mix of gastronomy, food science, history, cultural references, legend, lore, charts, graphs, photos, and illustrations, every one of the 400 pages in Let’s Eat Italy! is an alluring and amusing journey into Italian food.
Readers will find recipes for classic Italian dishes spanning all regions, like pappa al pomodoro, Bolognese, risi e bisi, risotto, focaccia, frittata, and so much more—all accompanied by photos and delightfully entertaining information on the origins and modern uses of the foods. There’s an ode to the panettone, the traditional Christmas sweet delight. A dedication to the magic of basil, Italy’s “royal” herb. A love story between pasta and potatoes that examines the many dishes that marry these two starches in delicious harmony. And, of course, pasta information aplenty; it’s featured in guides like that on the ultimate noodle, spaghetti, which includes all the different forms, the top spaghetti artisans in Italy, and the semolina flour mills and farmers. True Italians speak espresso, so readers will delight in the poster-like graphic that depicts 27 different types of espresso drinks. Tips for the kitchen include cooking beans in a chianti bottle—a trick Tuscan nonnas have been using for ages in the dish known as fagioli al fiasco. Learn how contemporary food trends (like the oh-so-hip orange wine, which Italians have been drinking for nearly 8,000 years) trace their roots to Italy. But the influence of Italian food doesn’t stop at the table—an entire spread looks at the Italian Mafia’s favorite dishes as seen in Hollywood, through the lenses of Scorsese, Leone, and Coppola. Let’s Eat Italy! is a splendid exploration of this beloved cuisine, from pizza to gelato, Milan to Sicily, and from the many kitchens of Italy to your own.

Mountains : Beyond the CloudsOrdinær pris 399,00 kr
Mountains, one of nature's greatest masterpieces, in their rugged beauty, breathtaking views from the top, clear air, green pastures, mountain lakes and glaciers, have captivated mankind all along. Climbing mountains or just gazing at their majestic splendor causes us to slow down and contemplate, maybe even giving us a little serenity. Photographer Tim Hall beautifully captures the powerful solace of mountains in his images.
He often chooses to shoot in dramatic weather, making his work and the photographed mountains look even more stunning and transcendent. The intention to strike an emotional or spiritual chord is evident in much of his landscape work, which is inspired by Rothko and Turner. The influence of painting in his work stems from his studies of Art History at Manchester University.
Mountains - Beyond the Clouds presents the extensive Alpine mountain range, including famous landmarks such as the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, and the Dolomites. Text in English, German and French.
