Métropole commerciale, industrielle et culturelle, Londres attire comme un aimant créatifs et entrepreneurs depuis des siècles. Rien ne caractérise mieux la diversité et la vitalité de la capitale britannique que sa multitude de cadres de vie hors du commun. Cet ouvrage vous ouvre les portes d'intérieurs sans pareils dans le monde. Témoignages de styles allant du classicisme majestueux jusqu'à l'avant-gardisme, les photographies sont une invitation à découvrir certaines des résidences particulières les plus remarquables de la ville. De genres très différents les unes des autres, elles reflètent cependant toute cette attitude londonienne indéfinissable, composée d'un inimitable mélange de confort et de glamour. L'excentricité typiquement anglaise transparaît dans l'emploi de matériaux ainsi que dans des juxtapositions fort intéressantes. Ce livre richement illustré rend à merveille le luxe de demeures exceptionnelles conçues par de grands noms de l'architecture d'intérieur, dont Tara Bernerd, Rabih Hage, David Carter, Stephen Ryan, Veere Grenney, et enfin et surtout, Geraldine Apponyi et Monika Apponyi, les décoratrices de renom qui ont dirigé la publication de cet ouvrage. Vous ne manquerez pas d'être fascinés par la large palette d'intérieurs magnifiques et originaux que recèle cette ville époustouflante.

This collection of essays brings together many separate but related issues which form the focus of contemporary research into the history of dress. Historically, in Britain at least, investigations of dress were primarily informed by historical and empirical protocols, although the symbolic meaning of dress was explored by anthroplogists and sociologists, who tended to concentrate on either non-Western cultures or British or Western sub-cultures. In recent years these approaches have moved closer together partly as a result of the impact of feminism.

An epic novel of Elizabeth I—her captivity, forbidden love, and rise to power—from the author of The Queen’s Rivals. Accused of conspiring with rebels to steal the throne, Princess Elizabeth is relegated to the Tower of London by her half-sister, Queen Mary. There she finds solace in the arms of a fellow prisoner—her childhood friend, Robert Dudley. Certain their days are numbered, their bond deepens. But they are spared the axe and Elizabeth soon wins the crown, while Robert returns to his wife and the unhappy union he believes cheated him of his destiny to be king. As a daughter of Henry VIII and the ill-fated Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth knows firsthand the cruelty that marriage belies, and roundly rejects the many suitors eager to wed the “Virgin Queen”—with the exception of the power-hungry Robert. But her conflicted love for him could threaten to destroy everything for which she has sacrificed so much. A captivating story of loyalty and betrayal, duty and freedom, The Queen’s Pleasure is a fascinating portrait of both the rise of Elizabeth I and one of the most compelling periods in history.
