We think we can control the elements but recent disasters like the tsunami of 26th December 2004 and Hurricane Katrina make it clear that we cannot. Never has it been more essential to understand how and why they happen. In a book that brings together science, history, literature and mythology, Rebecca Rupp demonstrates how humans relate to the elements. Full of intriguing facts and fascinating stories, Four Elements examines why we call people airy fairy, fiery tempered or down to earth; why the US National Bureau of Standards actually calculated the temperature of the pit of hell (44 degrees C); how the eruption of Tambora in 1815 inspired Mary Shelley to write Frankenstein; and why there is a 98.2% chance that an air molecule in your lungs at this precise moment was one of Caesar's last breaths. Four Elements is a journey of discovery through the elements - real and symbolic - that shape our lives. No one will leave this book without feeling hugely enriched.

Design icon Vicente Wolf, believes that the classical elements -- earth, water, air, and fire -- form the basic building blocks of great interior design, and the result is an inspirational guide to designing unforgettable spaces based on the four natural elements. Through his own breathtaking photography, and engaging narrative, Wolf shares his philosophy of designing around these four fundamental principles in a book divided into sections reflecting the unique qualities of each. Air showcases projects that contain a lightness of spirit, open in feeling, with a palette that creates an atmosphere without the conventional inside-outside boundaries. Earth features interiors grounded in stone, wood, and natural textures. Water shows restorative spaces swimming in serene shades of blues and aqua, while enlivening rich colors, and dramatic qualities are showcased in Fire. More than a dozen projects are presented in detail including Long Island beach houses, Manhattan apartments, a chalet in the Swiss Alps, a house in Israel, and sumptuous homes from New York and Connecticut, to California. Through this unique concept, Wolf proves why he is an uncontested master of luminous rooms that combine light, texture, strength, fluidity and sensuality.
