Roald Dahl cumple cien años en plena forma





Nuevas ediciones y adaptaciones mantienen encendido el fuego de su obra un siglo después de su nacimiento. Poeta, cuentista y también escritor de novelas para adultos
“Padre de Charlie, Matilda y los Gremlins”
Hay escritores que dan con la tecla y consiguen aupar dos o tres de sus libros a la categoría de imprescindibles. Roald Dahl, es uno de ellos. Es difícil nombrar uno de sus libros sin tener ya formada en la cabeza una idea sobre su trama y, claro, sus protagonistas: James (el del melocotón gigante), Charlie (el de la fábrica de chocolate), Jorge (el de la medicina mágica) o Matilda (la de Matilda) comparten juventud, espíritu rebelde e inteligencia…Más sobre esta noticia en El País

Libreros independientes… los compañeros soñados. ¿Te unes?

Libreros independientes… los compañeros soñados. ¿Te unes?

En fechas recientes he leído una información sobre una campaña lanzada por las librerías de Francia.
En la misma se presenta un manifiesto que pretende resaltar los elementos unificadores para la creación de una identidad colectiva de las Librerías independientes.
Agradezco a Alex Barandiaran la traducción al castellano y la maquetación del texto.

Y en esta época de sueños y deseos se me ha ocurrido, con toda la modestia del mundo, abrir una sencilla campaña.
Si consideras que los principios reflejados en la carta son una buena pista y deben ser tenidos en cuenta por las librerías independientes españolas le invito a que te unas con tu adhesión.
Iremos publicando a partir del miércoles las adhesiones que vayan llegando.

The Launch of NAOMI CAMPBELL



With a multiple artwork by Pop Art legend Allen Jones, NAOMI CAMPBELL is limited to 1,000 Collector’s Edition copies and two Art Editions of 100 copies each, with signed photographic print by Paolo Roversi or Jean-Paul Goude.

The two-volume edition marks a major record of Naomi’s career to-date, incorporating both a ravishing, SUMO-sized image portfolio and exclusive autobiographical text. Volume 1, the photographic collection, showcases Naomi as styled and shot by such luminaries as Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Richard Avedon, Anton Corbijn, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Paolo Roversi, Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth, and Bruce Weber. Volume 2 offers an unprecedented personal encounter with the supermodel, pairing Naomi’s own anecdotes and memories with family snapshots, personal notes, and photographs of friends and collaborators from her own archives.

Designed exclusively for Naomi’s book, Allen Jones’ artwork deploys stylized contours and smooth surfaces to invoke a sense of touch, while exploring the role of the supermodel in contemporary culture. In Jones’s words, “it does not attempt to illustrate Naomi, but to encapsulate her.”

This is the first in a series of international launches for TASCHEN’s NAOMI CAMPBELL.
