Artist Cat Seto, founder of the acclaimed Ferme a Papier brand, introduces you to the City of Light as never before in this distinctive volume-both a visual feast and celebration of the artistic process-filled with lavish illustrations and descriptive meditations that capture the quotidian pleasures of France's capital city and how they have inspired creativity. In Impressions of Paris, Cat Seto takes you on a dazzling and enlightening tour of Paris, from familiar sights to hidden surprises, to reveal this legendary city as never before. Combining informative and entertaining vignettes, stories, and notes with stunning full-color illustrations, she draws parallels between the city and the art it inspires. Organized around four main principles of art-color, pattern, perspective, and rhythm-Impressions of Paris is a celebration of the artistic spark in the city's mundane yet marvelous details: the pistachio and cassis palette triggered by the ice cream case at Berthillon; how a rainy stroll through an open air market transforms into a smudgy gouache (pronounced gwash) pattern; the lovely ubiquity of the iconic French stripe, the Breton. Pretty and inventive, surprising and stimulating, Impressions of Paris captures the beauty and charms of this stunning city and extols its power to stimulate the creative imagination-inviting artists and art appreciators to intimately experience a painter's process.
A modern masterpiece from one of Italy's most acclaimed authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense and generous hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila. Ferrante's inimitable style lends itself perfectly to a meticulous portrait of these two women that is also the story of a nation and a touching meditation on the nature of friendship. Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighbourhood, a city and a country as it is transformed in ways that, in turn, also transform the relationship between her two protagonists.
Paris is the most atmospheric city in the world: the imprint of its history is everywhere and architecturally, it is without equal. In the Paris Sketchbook, its essence is captured beautifully in more than a hundred watercolour and pencil sketches.

James Joyce A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a 1916 novel and cornerstone of literary modernism by Irish author James Joyce. The story follows Stephen Dedalus, Joyce's fictional alter-ego, and charts his path to personal and artistic maturity through his stream of consciousness. This is a non-linear narrative style typical of modernist prose in which a character's thoughts, feelings, and reactions are portrayed in a continuous flow and often disrupt the linear narrative of events and dialogue in the story.
