The only thing that keeps him going are the crazy stories Cook tells about the grizzly sea monsters. But when a huge wave sweeps him overboard, Davy finds himself in much stormier waters... and on the ship of a vengeful skeletal pirate captain! How will Davy get home now?!

In Woodlands, German photographer Mat Hennek (born 1969) presents portraits of trees, the results of numerous hikes through various forests in Europe and the US. Hennek sets out to discover extraordinary places in remote and often difficult-to-access areas, traveling for days on paths remote from human civilization. Hennek removes all spatial landmarks, alternately erasing the ground and horizon to unhinge any sense of direction. Light and shadow, pattern and structure build up to an impressionistic hymn--infinite, without a center, without beginning or end. As author Laureline Amanieux writes, “man is not needed in these works, as it is the viewer who becomes wholly integrated in the bosom of nature.” Through a graphic style that sublimates the landscape into pure abstraction, Hennek eliminates the border between painting and photography.

When the German Embassy in Washington was completed in 1964, the architectural critic of the Washington Post wrote that the express aim of those commissioning the building had been to make an architectural statement that would embody the spirit of the young German democracy and avoid any form that could revive grim memories of the past. The paper felt that it had been right to engage Egon Eiermann for this project, as he had already solved the same problem of ”architectural diplomacy“ with his German Pavilion for the Brussels World Fair in 1958. Eiermann (1904-1970) studied at the Technische Hochschule in Berlin, finally in Hans Poelzig's master-class, but he was also influenced by Heinrich Tessenow. As early as 1931 his first building, which he had planned as an architect employed in a practice, was published in Wasmuths Monatshefte fur Baukunst und Stadtebau; his major buildings and projects continued to be featured in magazines in Germany and abroad, and impressed with their formal language, which remained uninfluenced by fashionable trends. Building was first and foremost an intellectual process for Eiermann, determined by the factors construction, function and material, by objectivity and a self-control that granted the imagination only limited scope. Eiermann developed the vocabulary he had found in the thirties consistently after 1945. The works dating from the early post-war period still appeal, no less than the major sixties projects, because of their tight organization of functional necessities, unity of construction and architectural form, and precise shaping of even the tiniest detail and not least because of an effortless elegance and lightness that raise the work above merely fulfilling a purpose into the ranks of great architecture. J. Alexander and Jerry Hecht were the official photographers for the building. Their pictures are among the most convincing photographic interpretations of Eiermann's work. Immo Boyken is professor of building history and architectural theory in Konstanz. He is particularly interested in the architecture of the late 19th century and of classical Modernism. He made a major contribution to the 1984 monograph on Eiermann.

From his images of the Chateau of Versailles under restoration to the faded grandeur of Havana, to scenes of devastation from Chernobyl after the nuclear explosion and a New Orleans ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, Robert Polidori is drawn to detritus, shattered worlds and elegant ruin. Often considered an architectural photographer, Polidori captures more than buildings: his highly detailed views of interiors evoke both the intimate and the mysterious, wherein the humanity of these photos is felt in its very absence, in the traces left behind in vacant spaces once inhabited. "Chronophagia" is an affordable sampling of Polidori's many famous projects. This handsome clothbound volume contains the artist's own selection of more than 100 photographs, from the classics to several rarely seen images. The result is a beautifully edited compendium of Polidori's 28-year career and a stunning visual exploration of the liminal space between past and present, of worlds on the brink of disappearance. Robert Polidori was born in Montreal in 1951 and lives in Los Angeles. His work has been the subject of exhibitions in New York, London, Brazil and Montreal, among others. He received the World Press Photo Award in 1997, the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award for Magazine Photography in 1999 and 2000, and Communication Arts awards in 2007 and 2008. In 2006 Polidori's series of photographs of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina was exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Slavutych, a Ukrainian provincial city north of Kiev, seems in many respects to belong to a different era. Built after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986 to replace the contaminated dwellings of workers from the plant, Slavutych is the last "ideal" planned city of the Soviet Union. The city is highly topical, particularly in times of political crisis in Eastern Europe. However, Slavutych is also an architectural manifestation of the Soviet people's friendship, with architects throughout the Soviet Union involved in its planning and construction. Postmodern buildings in Slavutych are both characterised by socialist, Soviet influences and regional styles from the Caucasus region, Baltic States and Russia. Furthermore, the search for an environmentally sustainable, habitable architecture is of course still relevant today. The Architectural Guide Slavutych documents numerous buildings as well as all city districts, providing a critical analysis of unique late-Soviet architecture and urban planning in the context of Perestroika.
