Poolside With Slim Aarons

Poolside With Slim Aarons Lowest new price: $51.69
Lowest used price: $44.98
List price: $85.00
Brand: imusti

Like its predecessors, Once Upon a Time and A Place in the Sun, Poolside with Slim Aarons offers images of jet-setters and the wealthy, of beautiful, glittering people living the glamorous life. Yet this new collection of stunning photographs of the rich and well-connected “doing attractive things” in their favorite playgrounds has a new twist.

The main character is pools and everything that goes with them—magnificent, suntanned bodies; well-oiled skin; bikini-clad women; yachts; summer cocktails; sumptuous buffets; spectacular locations; and most of all: fun. Poolside is not so much a Who’s Who of society, aristocracy, and celebrity—although C. Z. Guest, Lilly Pulitzer, Cheryl Tiegs, Peter Beard, and many who have appeared in the previous books are here—as it is about leisure time and how the rich make use of it. This is a more intimate peek into very private lives, to which Slim Aarons was given unprecedented access in the fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties.

From the Caribbean to Italy and Mexico to Monaco, Poolside with Slim Aarons whisks the reader away to an exclusive club where taste, style, luxury, and grandeur prevail.

France is a Feast: The Photographic Journey of Paul and Julia Child

France is a Feast: The Photographic Journey of Paul and Julia Child Lowest new price: $18.68
Lowest used price: $16.40
List price: $35.00
Author: Alex Prud'homme
Brand: Pratt Katherine

From the coauthor of My Life in France, a revealing collection of photographs taken by Paul Child that document his and Julia Child’s years in France

Through intimate and compelling photographs taken by her husband Paul Child, a gifted photographer, France is a Feast documents how Julia Child first discovered French cooking and the French way of life. Paul and Julia moved to Paris in 1948 where he was cultural attaché for the US Information Service, and in this role he met Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Brassai, and other leading lights of the photography world. As Julia recalled: “Paris was wonderfully walkable, and it was a natural subject for Paul.”

Their wanderings through the French capital and countryside, frequently photographed by Paul, would help lead to the classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and Julia’s brilliant and celebrated career in books and on television. Though Paul was an accomplished photographer (his work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art), his photographs remained out of the public eye until the publication of Julia’s memoir, My Life in France, in which several of his images were included. Now, with more than 200 of Paul’s photographs and personal stories recounted by his great-nephew Alex Prud’homme, France is a Feast not only captures this magical period in Paul and Julia’s lives, but also brings to light Paul Child’s own remarkable photographic achievement.

250 black-and-white photographs

Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America

Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America Lowest new price: $46.35
Lowest used price: $40.50
List price: $75.00
Author: James Allen
Brand: Twin Palms Publishers

The Tuskegee Institute records the lynching of 3,436 blacks between 1882 and 1950. This is probably a small percentage of these murders, which were seldom reported, and led to the creation of the NAACP in 1909, an organization dedicated to passing federal anti-lynching laws. Through all this terror and carnage someone-many times a professional photographer-carried a camera and took pictures of the events. These lynching photographs were often made into postcards and sold as souvenirs to the crowds in attendance. These images are some of photography's most brutal, surviving to this day so that we may now look back on the terrorism unleashed on America's African-American community and perhaps know our history and ourselves better. The almost one hundred images reproduced here are a testament to the camera's ability to make us remember what we often choose to forget.

Evolution of Loving

Evolution of Loving Lowest new price: $18.94
Lowest used price: $25.85
List price: $24.95
Author: Carl Studna

We live in a culture where romantic illusions about love abound.  From movies and ballads and fairy tales, we learn the idea that somewhere out there exists that one special person who will fulfill all of our desires and make our hearts – and our lives – complete.  And we’re taught that once we find the “right” person, we will simply live Happily Ever After without any conscious effort on our part.  By the time we’re young adults, most of us have had the experience of falling in love, but very few of us are equipped with the skills and insights needed to sustain that love, or to create a healthy, lasting, and evolving partnership.   In truth, love is a verb: a regular practice, and a moment-by-moment, deliberate choice.  It’s not an experience that just happens to us, but an environment that we create and then nourish with our ongoing commitment and attention.   Few of us are skilled in the practice of love, but approaching it as a practice is precisely what is required, both for the longevity of our relationships and for our ability to evolve as individuals within them. 
The Evolution of Loving provides an intimate glimpse into eight remarkable partnerships that have been consciously built – and in many cases, rebuilt – on a foundation of authenticity, personal responsibility, and trust.  As a photography book and a written essay, It is both a beautiful celebration of, and a concise synthesis of, the principles and practices – including meditations, communication exercises, daily and monthly rituals, and more – that have helped each couple fulfill the highest promise of partnership.  The experiences conveyed in both words and images inspire us as to what becomes possible when we have the courage to fully open up to and grow in partnership alongside another human being.   The book has a very warm and inviting layout and design, like that of one’s personal diary that invites you to snuggle up next to a loved one or a fire and travel deep into the devotional love shared by each couple.  On it pages, you will discover the inspiring real-life stories of sixteen men and women who have learned to listen generously, to communicate authentically, and to take complete responsibility for our own happiness – and whose relationships reflect the depth of this commitment.  And while these couples all display an exceptional degree of devotion, it’s vital to understand that this did not happen by chance.  The level of intimacy between them was created in direct proportion to how much each was willing to give of themselves for the sake of their relationship – not only in happy times when giving comes easy, but at times when old wounds are triggered and our every survival instinct is screaming for us to build defensive walls and guard our hearts. The commitment to return to the practices that foster, maintain and restore connection, even in the midst of heartbreak, disillusionment or uncertainty, is what ultimately guided each couple to the other side.    In this book, you will learn the fundamental principles for deepening physical and emotional intimacy over time, and for allowing your partnership to foster both your individual and collective evolution.  You will learn how to intentionally view your partner – flaws and all – from the broadest and most empowered perspective.  You’ll learn how to balance togetherness with autonomy, and to appreciate the ways your individual differences can contribute to the expansion of your partnership.  Finally, the book closes with a comprehensive array of rituals and practices that will support you in strengthening the foundation of shared values between you and your partner, even when times are tough or communication has broken down.    The promise of evolving love is to use whatever comes up as an opportunity to heal past wounds, to understand our partners more intimately, and to remove any obstacles within ourselves to experiencing love’s full depth.  Each couple featured throughout this book has provided a piece of what is now a precise roadmap for nurturing the ongoing evolution of loving.  The insights, tools, practices and examples offered here will light the way to an experience of love that grows ever deeper, transparent, and trusting over time.
