Vitruvius: The Ten Books on Architecture

by Morris Hicky Morgan

For the first time in more than half a century, Vitruvius' Ten Books on Architecture is being published in English. The only full treatise on architecture and its related arts to survive from classical antiquity, the Architecture libri decem (Ten Books on Architecture) is the single most important work of architectural history in the Western world, having shaped architecture and the image of the architect from the Renaissance to the present. Demonstrating the range of Vitruvius' style, this new edition includes examples from archaeological sites discovered since World War II and not previously published in English language translations. Rowland's new translation and Howe's critical commentary and illustrations provide a new image of Vitruvius, who emerges as an inventive and creative thinker, rather than the normative summarizer, as he was characterized in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Palomino

by Elizabeth Jolley

PALOMINO Laura is in her fifties, a gynecologist now barred from her profession. For ten years, she has lived alone on a remote valley farm in self-imposed isolation. Then, returning by ship from a journey around the world (meant as an act of self-healing, -to reawaken her senses), Laura sees Andrea, a young woman whose golden hair and complexion remind her of the beautiful palomino horses that run together in paddocks in clear view of her verandah. Later, by chance, the two women meet at a dinner party, and to Laura's delight, Andrea insists on an extended visit to Laura's farm. Here, they share early morning walks in the jarrah forest, evenings of music and intimate conversation, and much reading-of diaries and letters, in particular. In this idyllic setting, amid orchards and rain storms, each woman seeks to make herself known to the other. The passion that blossoms is rare and deeply felt. As time passes, events long suppressed are revealed, unorthodox entanglements of friendship and love and a bizarre medical accident (or was it murder?).

by George Lucas

Luke Skywalker challenged the stormtroopers of a distant galaxy on a daring mission -- where a Force of life became the power of death! Luke Skywalker was a twenty-year-old who lived and worked on his uncle's farm on the remote planet of Tatooine...and he was bored beyond belief. He yearned for adventures out among the stars -- adventures that would take him beyond the farthest galaxies to distant and alien worlds. But Luke got more than he bargained for when he intercepted a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by a dark and powerful warlord. Luke didn't know who she was, but he knew he had to save her -- and soon, because time was running out. Armed only with courage and with the light saber that had been his father's, Luke was catapulted into the middle of the most savage space war ever... and he was headed straight for a desperate encounter on the enemy battle station known as the Death Star!
