The Call of the Wild
$10.00
Eighteen-year-old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, half-demon and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight full-blooded demons in Purgatory’s Arena. But when the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of Hell, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, Myla knows trouble is coming with a capital T.

Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super-sexy half-human and half-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.

Sign of the Green Arrow
The Book of Tea was written by Okakura Kakuzo in the early 20th century. It was first published in 1906, and has since been republished many times.
In the book, Kakuzo introduces the term Teaism and how Tea has affected nearly every aspect of Japanese culture, thought, and life. The book is accessibile to Western audiences because Kakuzo was taught at a young age to speak English; and spoke it all his life, becoming proficient at communicating his thoughts to the Western Mind. In his book, he discusses such topics as Zen and Taoism, but also the secular aspects of Tea and Japanese life. The book emphasises how Teaism taught the Japanese many things; most importantly, simplicity. Kakuzo argues that this tea-induced simplicity affected art and architecture, and he was a long-time student of the visual arts. He ends the book with a chapter on Tea Masters, and spends some time talking about Sen no Rikyu and his contribution to the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
According to Tomonobu Imamichi, Heidegger's concept of Dasein in Sein und Zeit was inspired — although Heidegger remains silent on this — by Okakura Kakuzo's concept of das-in-dem-Welt-sein (to be in the being of the world) expressed in The Book of Tea to describe Zhuangzi's philosophy, which Imamichi's teacher had offerred to Heidegger in 1919, after having followed lessons with him the year before.

Manifeste du Surréalisme
La réalité est la base de tout grand art. Sans elle pas de vie, pas de substance. La réalité, c'est le sol sous nos pieds et le ciel sur notre tête.

Tout ce que l'artiste crée a son point de départ dans la nature. Les cubistes, à leurs débuts, s'en rendirent bien compte : aussi humbles que les plus purs primitifs, ils s'abaissèrent profondément jusqu'à l'objet le plus simple, le plus dénué de valeur, et allèrent jusqu'à coller sur le tableau un morceau de papier peint, dans toute sa réalité...

A terrarium is nothing less than a miniature world — one that you can create yourself. It might be a tiny rainforest, with lush foliage and bright tropical flowers. Or a desert, with strange succulents planted among colorful stones. Or a Victorian fernery. Or a minimalist composition with a single, perfect plant.

Or it might not contain any plants at all. It might be made with crystals, feathers, bones, seashells, bits of wood, porcelain trinkets — anything that catches your fancy and helps create a mood or look. Whatever they contain, terrariums are the ultimate in modern, affordable, easy-care décor.

Terrarium Craft features fifty original designs that you can re-create or use as inspiration for your own design. Each entry comes with clear step-by-step directions on how to assemble and care for your terrarium. You’ll also find helpful information about selecting a container, using appropriate materials, choosing the right plants, and maintaining your terrarium. (Hint: It’s easy! In fact, many terrariums are self-sustaining, requiring no maintenance whatsoever!)

If you’ve always wanted to have a bit of nature in your own home, without the worry and labor of a garden, this book will show you exactly how to create your own unique, enchanting world. aste and style.

Selected works of humour and criticism by a revered American master.

Beloved by millions, Mark Twain is the quintessential American writer. More than anyone else, his blend of scepticism, caustic wit and sharp prose defines a certain American mythos. While his novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is still taught to anyone who attends school and is considered by many to be the Great American Novel, Twain's shorter stories and criticisms have unequalled style and bite.

In a review that's less than kind to the writing of James Fenimore Cooper, Twain writes: "Every time a Cooper person is in peril, and absolute silence is worth four dollars a minute, he is sure to step on a dry twig. There may be a hundred handier things to step on, but that wouldn't satisfy Cooper. Cooper requires him to turn out and find a dry twig; and if he can't do it, go and borrow one." It's difficult to imagine anyone else writing in quite this style, which is why Twain's legacy only continues to grow.

Le livre anniversaire des 150 ans du Bataclan

Célèbre chinoiserie de Paris, le Bataclan fêtera ses 150 ans fin 2014. Initialement dédiée aux café-concerts dès 1864, la salle connaîtra plusieurs vies : revue montée, cinéma… En 1983, elle renoue avec ses premières amours et redevient une salle de spectacles (humour, musique…). Pour célébrer l’anniversaire de cette emblématique salle parisienne, le photographe Stephan Zaubitzer a choisi l’angle de ses publics. Un large panel d’individus grâce auquel le lieu se transforme chaque soir. Pendant plus de deux ans, Stephan Zaubitzer a aménagé un studio dans ce lieu mythique et y a photographié des centaines de spectateurs, avec leurs codes vestimentaires, leur maquillage, badge ou tatouage. Photographiés seuls, en pied, de face et de dos, les personnages s’animent comme autant de figurines d’un vaste musée vivant.
Concerts photographiés entre 2012 et 2014 : Soirée 1990 ; Soirée Crazyvores ; Asap Rocky ; Die Antwoord ; Earth Wind and Fire ; Fauve ; Kev Adams ; Kid Creole and the Coconuts ; L.M.C. ; La Fouine ; Metal ; Ministry ; Wu Tang Clan.

Le photographe

Stephan Zaubitzer est photographe depuis 1991. Douze ans plus tard, sa photographie rencontre le cinéma. Il devient lauréat du World Press Photo 2004, puis est nominé au prix Roger-Pic décerné par la Scam pour son travail sur les salles de cinéma du monde. Sous la direction artistique de Françoise Huguier, ce travail est exposé au Mois de la Photographie 2008 organisé par la MEP. Avec l’aide des instituts français, il développe ce travail en Égypte, Inde et Maroc. Stephan Zaubitzer vient de réaliser Mon entreprise prend la pose, un livre de portraits pour France Initiative. Il est par ailleurs sociétaire de la coopérative de photographes Picturetank qui distribue ses archives.
