But the book also includes interiors and furniture displayed at the 1928 exhibition ‘Heim und Technik’ in Munich, photos of smal-apartment buildings models, etc. ‘Zur neuen Wohnform’ is one of the most attractively designed publications ever on International Style architecture, in itself a congenial expression of the Luckhardts Brothers aesthetic ideals” J.

        Die Weltmeisterschaftsbälle - Alle original Fußbälle von 1930 bis 2010 - Kunstedition mit Buch.

      . Nie zuvor wurden die originalen Weltmeisterschaftsbälle komplett fotografiert, nie zuvor mit fotoästhetischer Perfektion und Liebe porträtiert. Die Künstler und Autoren haben dazu fast ein dutzend Länder bereist, über drei Jahre hinweg recherchiert, ein Jahr geplant, entworfen und produziert und dieses wunderbare, limitierte Werk herausgebracht. Die Kunst-Edition besteht aus 7 hochwertigen Pigmentabzügen der Weltmeisterschaftsbälle von 1930, 1954, 1966, 1974, 1986, 1998 und 2006 im Format 33 cm mal 33 cm, auf Hahnemühle Fine Art Papier 285 gr, in Museumsqualität angefertigt. Das heißt, sie sind besonders lange haltbar und die Oberfläche edel. Die Pigmentabzüge sind alle vom Fotografen Jens Heilmann handsigniert. Das Buch wurde auf einem besonders veredelten Naturpapier im hochwertigen Offsetdruck gedruckt, dann mit großem Aufwand zu einer sogenannten Schweizer Broschur verarbeitet (fadengenäht und verleimt, mit offenem Rücken), weil sich diese Form des Buches leicht blättern lässt. Die Naht darf gern an Ballnähte erinnern. Der Buchdeckel nimmt das Material der Schachtel noch einmal auf. Die Fotografie der Bälle ist aufwändig, wirkt aber schlicht und unspektakulär. Die individuelle Geschichte der Bälle, ihr oftmaliger Wechsel von einem Besitzer zum anderen, ihre technischen Besonderheiten wurden mit größtmöglicher Detailtreue recherchiert und aufgeschrieben. Materialwahl und Verarbeitung, Form, Grafik. Texte und Fotografie sollten eine Einheit bilden und zur Ausstrahlung der Bälle passen. Diese haben mit der Zeit eine schöne und schlichte Patina erhalten. Ähnlich verhält es sich mit diesem Buch. Der Einband ist empfindlich und es wird ein vorsichtiger Umgang empfohlen, insbesondere, wenn das Buch weiterverschenkt werden soll. Zu diesem Zweck sind Baumwollhandschuhe beigelegt. Die Bücher haben einen Umfang von 60 Seiten und 33x33 cm und sind handnummeriert. Die Schachtel ist eine hochwertige Buchbindearbeit aus Karton und Holz. Das Obermaterial ist gesiebdruckt und erinnert an die Oberfläche eines Balles. Glatt und trotzdem griffig, edel, kühl, schön in der Hand zu halten. DEUTSCHE AUSGABE. Zustand: A.

        Theatre de Moliere

      Paris - Librairie Plon, 1930. Paris - Librairie Plon, 1930 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautiful set of the Theatre de Moliere with illustrations. Complete in six volumes. These volumes contain the following works by Moliere: La Jalousie du barbouill - Le Mdecin volant - L'Etourdi - Le Dpit amoureux - Les Prcieuses ridicules - Saganarelle - Don Garcie de Navarre - L'Ecole des maris - Les Fcheux - L'Ecole des femmes - L'Impromptu de Versaille - Le Mariage forc - Les Plaisirs de l'le enchante - Tartuffe - Don Juan - L'Amour mdecin - Le Misanthrope - Le Mdeci malgr lui - Amphytrion - George Dandin - L'Avare - Monsieur de Pourceaugnac - Le Bourgeois gentilhomme - Les Fourberies de Scapin - La Comtesse d'Escarbagnas - Les Femmes savantes - Le Malade imaginaire. Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, known by his stage name Molire; was a French playwright and actor who is considered to be one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature. Among Molire's best-known works are Le Misanthrope (The Misanthrope), L'cole des Femmes (The School for Wives), Tartuffe ou L'Imposteur (Tartuffe or the Imposter), L'Avare (The Miser), Le Malade Imaginaire (The Imaginary Invalid), and Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme (The Bourgeois Gentleman). Born into a prosperous family and having studied at the Collge de Clermont (now Lyce Louis-le-Grand), Molire was well suited to begin a life in the theatre. Thirteen years as an itinerant actor helped him polish his comic abilities while he began writing, combining Commedia dell'arte elements with the more refined French comedy. Through the patronage of a few aristocrats, including Philippe I, Duke of Orlans the brother of Louis XIV Molire procured a command performance before the King at the Louvre. Performing a classic play by Pierre Corneille and a farce of his own, Le Docteur Amoureux (The Doctor in Love), Molire was granted the use of salle du Petit-Bourbon near the Louvre, a spacious room appointed for theatrical performances. Later, Molire was granted the use of the Palais-Royal. In both locations he found success among the Parisians with plays such as Les Prcieuses ridicules (The Affected Ladies), L'cole des Maris (The School for Husbands) and L'cole des Femmes (The School for Wives). This royal favor brought a royal pension to his troupe and the title Troupe du Roi (The King's Troupe). Molire continued as the official author of court entertainments. Though he received the adulation of the court and Parisians, Molire's satires attracted criticisms from moralists and the Roman Catholic Church. Tartuffe ou L'Imposteur (Tartuffe or the Hypocrite) and its attack on religious hypocrisy roundly received condemnations from the Church, while Don Juan was banned from performance. Molire's hard work in so many theatrical capacities began to take its toll on his health and, by 1667, he was forced to take a break from the stage. In 1673, during a production of his final play, Le Malade Imaginaire (The Imaginary Invalid), Molire, who suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis, was seized by a coughing fit and a haemorrhage while playing the hypochondriac Argan. He finished the performance but collapsed again and died a few hours later. Condition: In quarter calf leather bindings with marbled paper covered boards and gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Corners are slightly bumped. Some volumes are in a partial acetate covering. Top edges of the leaves are gilt. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are foxed throughout, particularly to the first and last few pages. Overall: VERY GOOD..
