    When gunslingers chose their weapons and took their chances. From colonial-era rifles carried on the "e;Owlhoot Trail"e; to John Dillinger's Colt pistols, the history of the American outlaw is told in guns--weapons that became each man's personal signature. Authors Gerry and Janet Souter peer into these criminals' choices of derringers, revolvers, shotguns, rifles, machine guns, and curious hybrids, giving us a glimpse into the minds behind the trigger fingers. With over 200 illustrations, Guns of Outlaws gives a unique look at the lives and the hardware of the most infamous outlaws in American history, and of the law enforcement officers who hunted them. As settlers moved further west, away from authority and soft city life into the Great Plains, the push for survival through the endless prairies and jagged isolating mountain ranges bred ruthless men. Most outlaws were technology freaks who seized upon the latest weapon innovations developed in the industrious East to provide an edge in the life-and-death cosmosof the Wild West. Outlaws tinkered with their guns, creating unique hardware that became their calling cards. Attempts by lawmen to take control sparked a weapons race, pitting gunmen and bandit gangs against home-grown lawmen and vigilante "e;posses."e; By the late 1930s and early 1940s, outlaws on horseback had given way to marauding bank robbers. Using fast cars and faster guns, they became folk heroes of the Great Depression, even as the law was hard on their tails.

    Detras de los retratos de Frida Kahlo se ocultan tanto la historia de su vida como la de su obra. Es precisamente esta combinacion lo que cautiva al espectador. La obra de Frida es un testimonio de su vida. Pocas veces se puede aprender tanto acerca de un artista con solo contemplar lo que inscribe dentro del marco de sus cuadros. Frida Kahlo es sin lugar a dudas la ofrenda de Mexico a la historia del arte. Tenia apenas dieciocho anos cuando un terrible accidente cambio su vida para siempre, dejandola discapacitada y agobiada por un dolor fisico permanente. Pero su caracter explosivo, su ferrea determinacion y su inquebrantable ahinco la ayudaron a formar su talento artistico. A su lado estuvo siempre el gran pintor y muralista mexicano Diego Rivera, cuyo obsesivo donjuanismo no le impidio a Frida conquistarlo con sus encantos, su talento y su inteligencia. Ella aprendio rapidamente a aprovechar el exito de su companero para explorar el mundo, creando asi su propio legado y rodeandose con gran esmero de un muy estrecho grupo de amigos. Su vida personal fue turbulenta: muchas veces dejo de lado su relacion con Diego mientras cultivaba sus relaciones amorosas con personas de ambos sexos. Pese a esto, Frida y Diego lograron salvar su deteriorado idilio. La historia y las pinturas que Frida nos dejo revelan el valiente relato de una mujer en constante busqueda de si misma.

    "e;Ya conocia a Diego Rivera, el muralista mexicano, mucho antes de encontrarme con los otros "e;Diego Rivera"e; que circulaban por el mundo entre principios del siglo XX y finales de la decada de los 50. (...) Mientras que sus pinturas de caballete constituyen un amplio corpus dentro de su obra temprana y tardia, sus murales unicos hacen estallar las paredes en una explosion de representaciones de gran virtuosismo cuya organizacion conmociona la mente del espectador. En esas paredes se juntan el hombre, su leyenda y sus mitos, su talento tecnico, su intensa focalizacion sobre la narracion de la Historia y sus convicciones ideologicas propensas a la autoindulgencia."e; (Gerry Souter). Gerry Souter, autor del excelente libro Frida Kahlo, hace a un lado su gran admiracion por Diego Rivera para darle al artista una dimension humana, basada en sus opiniones politicas, sus amorios y su conviccion de que "e;en lo profundo de su ser (...) estaba Mexico, el lenguaje de sus pensamientos, la sangre en sus venas, el cielo azul por encima de su lugar de reposo."e;

  • - Conning the Third Reich
    by Gerry Souter & Janet Souter
    £2.99

    Our story is about the genesis and evolution of these phantoms and men-who-never-were, these artists and magicians at the front line who operated in stealth and secrecy. Throughout the course of World War II, Allied forces engaged in elaborate deceptions to fool Hitler's armies. A ragtag group of Bohemian artists and creatives were assembled to devise these strategies, including rubber dummy tanks, faux railway lines and falsified wireless intelligence. They made armies appear out of thin air, baffling German forces and ensuring Allied success in battle. For fifty years, information on the Ghost Army strategies was classified. It is only recently that details of their heroic actions have come to light. This book includes details of SHAEF command centre who organised many of the deceptions, the First US Army Group (the so-called 'Ghost Army'), the 23rd Camouflage Engineers, and accounts of the double cross agents who risked their lives and freedom to mislead Nazi High Command. Featuring never-before-seen information from veteran interviews, The Ghost Army brings to life the fascinating story of the men and women who conned Adolf Hitler.

    Sie lernten sich 1928 kennen, als Frida Kahlo gerade einundzwanzig Jahre und Diego doppelt so alt war. Er genoss bereits internationale Anerkennung, als sie noch davon traumte. Aus ihrer strmischen Beziehung erwuchs vor allem fr Frida eine starke Kreativitt, doch brachte sie auch groes Leid mit sich. Stets im Schatten ihres Mannes, dessen hufige Untreue sie genau so wie die eigene Eifersucht ertrug, lebte Frida ihren Schmerz auf der Leinwand aus und erlangte so nach und nach das Interesse der ffentlichkeit. Die beiden engagierten Knstler verkndeten ihre Freiheit in Amerika und Europa und hinterlieen hier wie dort die Spuren ihres unglaublichen Talents. In dieser wundervollen Doppelausgabe stellt Gerry Souter nicht nur die Biographien beider Knstler einander gegenber, sondern hlt dem Leser gleichzeitig mit viel Gefhl das dnne Band vor Augen, das die beiden grten mexikanischen Knstler des 20. Jahrhunderts zusammen hielt.

    In die Portrats der Frida Kahlo sind sowohl ihr Leben als auch ihr Wirken selbst eingeflossen. Genau diese Mischung zieht den Betrachter in ihren Bann. Kahlos Werk lauft wie der Film ihres Lebens vor dem Auge des Betrachters ab, und nur selten lasst sich in Bilderrahmen mehr uber Kunstler erfahren, als es bei ihren Werken der Fall ist. Mit achtzehn Jahren veranderte ein Busungluck, das ihr lebenslange Schmerzen verursachen sollte, ihr Dasein. Doch harte Arbeit und ihre Verbissenheit halfen bei der Entwicklung ihres kunstlerischen Talents. Ihr malerischer und schriftlicher Nachlass stellen den mutigen Lebensbericht einer Frau dar, die auch an der Seite des beruhmten Diego Rivera fortwahrend auf der Suche nach sich selbst war.

    Am Zeitraum zwischen Geburt und Tod der Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) streift die gesamte moderne Geschichte der Vereinigten Staaten vorbei wie ein Hollywood-Film. Aus einer kleinen Stadt stammend, schafft sich Georgia O'Keeffe erst in New York einen Namen; jenes New York, das Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts Paris als Welthauptstadt der Kunst ablost. Sie wurde vor allem durch ihre komplexen Naturbeschreibungen wie beispielsweise der Zartheit eines Herbstblattes, den subtilen Nuancen einer Blute oder der Symmetrie eines Tierschadels bekannt. Heute assoziiert man Georgia O'Keeffe mit kraftvollen Farben und der wilden Schonheit der Wuste Neu Mexikos, wo sie bis zu ihrem Tod im Jahr 1986 gelebt hat. Das vorliegende Ebook zeichnet den Lebensweg der modernen Frau Georgia O'Keeffe sowie ihre Art und Weise, Kunst zu schaffen, nach und betrachtet nicht zuletzt ihr Erbe fr die Nachwelt. Es hebt auch die Aspekte der Weiblichkeit und des Schaffens hervor.

    Edward Hopper exprime avec poesie la solitude de l'homme face a cet american way of life qui se developpe dans les annees 1920. S'inspirant du cinema par les prises de vue ou les attitudes des personnages, ses peintures refletent et denoncent l'alienation de la culture de masse. Avec ses toiles aux couleurs froides, peuplees de personnages anonymes, l'A uvre d'Hopper symbolise aussi le reflet de la Grande Depression. A travers des reproductions variees (gravures, aquarelles, huiles sur toile), l'auteur, par une analyse tant artistique que thematique, nous apporte un eclairage nouveau sur l'univers enigmatique et torture de ce peintre majeur.

    Georgia O'Keeffe (Sun Prarie, Wisconsin, 1887 - Santa Fe, 1986)En 1905, Georgia O'Keeffe suivit des cours l' Art Institute de Chicago et dbuta srieusement sa carrire artistique. Elle s'installa ensuite New York et s'inscrivit l'Art Students League School.Georgia adorait les cours de nature morte dispenss par le fringant William Merritt Chase, un des professeurs qui l'influencrent durant cette priode. Elle frquenta la galerie 291 et y rencontra son futur mari, le photographe, Alfred Stieglitz. Durant l't 1912, elle suivit des cours l'universit de Virginie auprs d'Alon Bement qui recourait une mthode rvolutionnaire pour enseigner l'art, imagine par Arthur Wesley Dow. Les lves ne copiaient pas mcaniquement la nature, mais se voyaient enseigner les principes du dessin bas sur les formes gomtriques. Ils s'exeraient diviser un carr, dessiner au coeur d'un cercle ou encore placer un rectangle autour d'un dessin, puis organiser la composition en l'agenant par l'ajout ou l'limination d'lments. Georgia trouva que cette mthode confrait une structure l'art et l'aidait comprendre les bases de l'abstraction. Au dbut de l'anne 1925, Stieglitz exposa les artistes encourags l'poque du 291. C'est au cours de cette exposition que les peintures gantes de fleurs de Georgia O'Keeffe, destines faire prendre conscience de la nature, furent prsentes pour la premire fois. Les critiques acclamrent cette nouvelle manire de voir. Elle dtestait cependant les connotations sexuelles que les gens associaient ses toiles, en particulier ce moment des annes 1920 o les thories freudiennes commenaient ressembler ce que nous appellerions aujourd'hui de la psychologie de bazar L'hritage que Georgia laisse derrire elle est une vision unique qui traduit la complexit de la nature en formes simples. Elle nous enseigne qu'il y a de la posie dans la nature et de la beaut dans la gomtrie.

    Je connaissais Diego Rivera, le muraliste mexicain, bien avant de decouvrir les nombreux autres Diego Rivera qui hanterent le monde du debut du XXe siecle a la fin des annees 1950. [...] Si ses peintures de chevalet et ses dessins forment une grande part de ses A uvres de jeunesse comme de la maturite, ses peintures murales uniques font exploser les murs par la virtuosite de leur composition epoustouflante. Sur ces murs s'exposent tout a la fois l'homme, sa legende et ses mythes, son talent technique, son intensite narrative et les convictions ideologiques qu'il aimait afficher. (Gerry Souter) Depassant son admiration, Gerry Souter, auteur du remarquable Frida Kahlo, n'hesite pas a ramener Diego Rivera a une dimension humaine, en constatant ses choix politiques, ses amours, et qu'au fond de lui bouillonnait le Mexique, langue de ses pensees, sang de ses veines, azur du ciel au-dessus de sa tombe.

    They met in 1928, Frida Kahlo was then 21 years old and Diego Rivera was twice her age. He was already an international reference, she only aspired to become one.An intense artistic creation, along with pain and suffering, was generated by this tormented union, in particular for Frida. Constantly in the shadow of her husband, bearing his unfaithfulness and her jealousy, Frida exorcised the pain on canvas, and won progressively the public's interest. On both continents, America and Europe, these commited artists proclaimed their freedom and left behind them the traces of their exceptional talent.In this book, Gerry Souter brings together both biographies and underlines with passion the link which existed between the two greatest Mexican artists of the twentieth century.

    In his works, Hopper poetically expressed the solitude of man confronted to the American way of life as it developed in the 1920s. Inspired by the movies and particularly by the various camera angles and attitudes of characters, his paintings expose the alienation of mass culture. Created using cold colours and inhabited by anonymous characters, Hopper's paintings also symbolically reflect the Great Depression.Through a series of different reproductions (etchings, watercolours, and oil-on-canvas paintings), as well as thematic and artistic analysis, the author sheds new light on the enigmatic and tortured world of this outstanding figure.

    The largest such spectacle in the world, the Chicago Air and Water Show draws over three million people to the lakeshore for a weekend of low-key beach leisure and high-powered entertainment. Gerry and Janet Souter climb into the cockpit (and occasionally lean precariously out of it) to log the extravaganza's fascinating history. Even before the event became a beloved annual tradition half a century ago, visitors to the lakeshore had been treated to sights like the International Aviation Meet, attended by the Wright brothers and their daring competitors; World War II training maneuvers executed by pilots like President George H.W. Bush; and an ascension to world seaport status graced by a visit from the royal yacht Britannia. This book is for anyone who has ever participated in the show's glorious tradition and for those who haven't but who still would like to get a glimpse of the gut-thrumming majesty of the planes and learn what convinced comedian Bill Murray to jump out of one of them.

    The village of Arlington Heights--beginning with the diligence and fortitude of William Dunton--is replete with stories of bitter hardship and exalting triumph. Originally named Dunton after its founder, the village's success was sealed by canny deal-making that brought a railroad through the middle of town. As the state of Illinois boomed, the village on the tracks flourished with agriculture, industry, transportation and an expanding population. From the influx of immigrants and industry to the resurrection of the Arlington Park Racetrack, read the compelling history of a small agricultural village's transformation into a thriving commercial district and the unique way in which its small-town charm and industrious spirit coexist.
