1942 wurde Lale Sokolov nach Auschwitz deportiert. Seine Aufgabe war es, Häftlingsnummern auf die Unterarme seiner Mitgefangenen zu tätowieren, jene Nummern, die später zu den eindringlichsten Mahnungen gegen das Vergessen gehören würden. Er nutzte seine besondere Rolle und kämpfte gegen die Unmenschlichkeit des Lagers, vielen rettete er das Leben. Dann, eines Tages, tätowierte er den Arm eines jungen Mädchens – und verliebte sich auf den ersten Blick in Gita. Eine Liebesgeschichte begann, an deren Ende das Unglaubliche wahr werden sollte: Sie überlebten beide. Eindringlich erzählt Heather Morris die bewegende, wahre Geschichte von Lale und Gita, die den Glauben an Mut, Liebe und Menschlichkeit nie verloren.

Text in English & German. The opulently illustrated volume "Tattoo in Japan" is an impressive book about the high art of tattooing in Japan. Not solely for fans of tattoos, it's equally appealing for people who are interested in Japanese culture and art. This book will likewise delight graphic artists, fashion designers and visual artists. The art of creating long-lasting body decorations has an age-old tradition in Japan. Many parallels can be drawn between this traditional genre and classical ink paintings and woodcuts by Japanese masters. The grand master of an art is known in Japan as a "sensei": this book contains works by many of the finest and most prestigious master tattooists. These virtuosos provide inspiration and serve as role models for a younger generation of tattoo artists in their Asian homeland and abroad. Included are rare and beautifully documented works by traditional masters with their delicate and impressive full body suit tattoos, the style of which has changed very little since the Edo Period, when this art form first became popular. The art works are splendidly depicted in intimate photojournalism, where they provide silent testimony to months spent under the needles of these unparalleled masters, who explore the possibilities of their métier on and in their clients' skin. Tattoo aficionados will be familiar with the names of artists such as Horitoku, Horiyoshi III and Horiyasu, but this comprehensive book also features the diverse styles that are prominent in contemporary tattooing. The spectrum ranges from old school, to neo-traditional and contemporary styles. The volume's generously large format provides ample space for impressive photographs which artfully capture the diversity and lively creativity of Japan's contemporary tattoo scene. The visual interest is further enhanced by a successful mix of studio shots and photographs taken onsite. This lavishly illustrated book prioritises excellent printing and the best colour reproductions. Join us on a visual journey and indulge your senses in incredible imagery and colours. The book is divided into four chapters: Tokyo, Chubu (the region between Tokyo and Kyoto, with Nagoya as its capital city), Kyoto and Osaka. Tattooists in each metropolis have their own distinct styles and trends, spanning a wide spectrum from classically conservative to totally eccentric and extreme. Readers who are eager to delve more deeply into the subject will appreciate the numerous, well-researched texts about the history and background of tattooing. Rounding out the volume are interviews with grand masters, who offer exciting insights into their lives and work, as well as into the tattoo scene in general. "Tattoo in Japan" is a very special book that could only have been created thanks to a unique combination of much love, intense dedication and the utmost efforts by all its contributors. We sincerely hope you'll feel and share our enthusiasm.

Winter 1963. An einem frostigen Dezembertag verschwindet ein dreizehnjähriges Mädchen spurlos aus dem abgeschiedenen Dorf Scardale in Derbyshire: Ahson Carter, die Stieftochter des Gutsherrn. Der junge Inspector George Bennett erhofft sich den ersten spektakulären Ermittlungserfolg seiner Laufbahn. Doch im Dorf Scardale, wo die Zeit stehengeblieben zu sein scheint, herrscht Mißtrauen - und tiefes Schweigen. Von Stunde zu Stunde, von Woche zu Woche mehren sich die Zeichen, daß Alison brutal ermordet wurde. Doch erst nach Monaten hartnäckigen Suchens und einem aufwühlenden Prozeß wird George Bennett den Fall zu den Akten legen - mit mehr offenen Fragen auf der Seele, als ihm lieb ist. Jahrzehnte später, im Jahre 1998, entschließt sich die junge Journalistin Catherine Heathcote, die Geschichte des berühmten "Mordfalls ohne Leiche" in einem Buch aufzuzeichnen. Kaum aber hat sie ihr Manuskript abgeschlossen, geschieht etwas völlig Unerwartetes: George Bennett verbietet die Veröffentlichung. Catherine wird von jetzt an selbst ermitteln und auf eine Wahrheit stoßen, die zerstörerisch ist - eine Wahrheit, die Leben vernichten oder aber retten kann. Die Entscheidung hegt bei ihr... Val McDermid, die zu den erfolgreichsten britischen Autorinnen von Spannungsliteratur zählt, stellt in ihrem atemberaubenden Roman die Gesetze des Kriminalgenres auf den Kopf. In zwei Akten erzählt sie die Geschichte einer tragischen Täuschung - und treibt dabei das raffinierteste Spiel mit der Leichtgläubigkeit der Leser.

Disrupting commonly held notions about who gets tattooed and why, The Tattoo Project describes, illustrates, and celebrates the social significances of commemorative tattoos. Written by scholars from various disciplines, as well as by community members and practitioners, this edited collection considers the meanings people make from their experiences of love, loss, trauma, resilience, and change, and why they choose to inscribe those meanings on their bodies. This methods-based text also examines the process of building a community-contributed digital archive of tattoo photos and stories, the result of which inspired the contributions to this book. Writing at the intersections between the public and the private, the authors consider the production and mobilization of knowledge across communities, disciplines, and space. Featuring beautiful tattoo photography, personal narratives from project participants, and original poetry by Priscila Uppal, The Tattoo Project is a novel read that bridges the gap between academic and popular audiences. This timely collection is a valuable resource for courses across the social sciences and humanities and for anyone interested in tattoos and their significance.
