Living in Provence by Barbara & Rene Stoelte
Hardcover, 21,6 x 25 cm, 200 pages
Nestled in the south of France, bordering the Mediterranean sea, is a magical region of the world renowned for its lavender fields, fine, cuisine, golden sun, and dreamy landscapes. This land, known as Provence, has inspired such writers and artists as Alphonse Daudet, Frédéric Mistral, and Vincent Van Gogh. Paul Cezanne loved the region’s Mount Sainte Victoire so much that he immortalized it in his famous paintings; his Provence studio, which still looks the same as it did over one hundred years ago, is featured herein, as is the house where Mistral, 1904 Nobel prize-winner, lived and wrote. Also included are photographs of the famous Hotel Nord-Pinus in Arles where Jean Cocteau sojourned and Picasso stayed when he came to see the bullfights. Bringing together the region’s most remarkable interiors, classical and contemporary, this book paints a gorgeous picture of Provençal living.

The typical plants of each climatic region are represented—delphiniums, roses and irises in the North, and Californian poppies, santolinas, and lavender in the Midi.

Inside Chefs’ Fridges, Europe. Top chefs open their home refrigerators Hardcover, 21 x 30 cm, 328 pages
Ours is the era of the celebrity chef. Like never before, we’re fascinated by fine food and the personalities who create it. Newspapers follow the antics of our favorite cooks both in and out of the kitchen, bake-offs of all kinds become hit TV shows, and chef-owned restaurants have lines trailing around the block. Amid this media frenzy, the world of fine dining can feel removed from our lives.
Inside Chefs’ Fridges brings the heavenly cuisine back down to earth. Touring the European continent, it profiles 40 of Europe’s top chefs alongside their personal home fridges. The result is a revelation, through images and words, of the inner sanctum of culinary creativity, with each chef revealing their dependable fridge contents, their favorite local ingredients, as well as two of their most treasured home recipes.
Stars of this European edition include Joan Roca, Massimo Bottura, Fergus Henderson, Yotam Ottolenghi, Marco Pierre White, Hélène Darroze, Inaki Aizpitarte, Mauro Colagreco, Thierry Marx, and Christian F. Puglisi. Eschewing the media dazzle, this book is instead an inspiring and accessible collection of exclusive insider secrets in which culinary genius meets domestic reality.
“Forget snooping in medicine cabinets or on open laptops: if you want to get to know someone, look inside their fridge – a chilly window on where and how we live and who we are.” Tatler, Hong Kong
20th Century Travel Hardcover, 15,1 x 19,5 cm, 464 pages Multilingual Edition: English, French, German
Over the course of the twentieth century, travel experienced an unprecedented boom. As ocean liners broke speed records, aerodynamic trains roared down tracks, and stylish boat-plane clippers evolved into jumbo jets, travel transformed from a cushioned journey of the elite into a convenient pastime for the general public.
With the mass production of automobiles, invention of airplanes, freeways and motels, America led the wanderlust phenomenon. With nearly 400 vintage print advertisements from the Jim Heimann Collection, this book documents the exponential expansion of American tourism, through the domestic and global, exclusive and popular, exotic and standardized adventure.
With an introduction, decade-by-decade analysis, and an illustrated timeline, rediscover the thrilling energy of this new age of mobility in which Americans climbed aboard locomotives or ships, jets or Greyhound buses to explore distant lands, or to see whole new sides to their own country.
