    In a country only unified since 1871, German culture and art is derived from ancient tradition. Studying German painting requires viewing it on a different scale, larger than the current geographical frontiers. From the Middle Ages through to the New Objectivity of the 20th century, we introduce you to the German artists who have marked history: Albrecht Dürer, the Romantic Caspar David Friedrich, and the Expressionist Otto Dix. Original in its themes, German painting always seeks harmony whilst remaining inquisitive.

    An invaluable collection of think pieces from a climate change expert and the author of the #1 international bestseller The Weather Makers.   Tim Flannery is one of the world’s most influential scientists, a foremost expert on climate change credited with discovering more species than Charles Darwin. But Flannery didn’t come to his knowledge overnight. With its selection of exhilarating essays and articles written over the past twenty-five years, An Explorer’s Notebook charts the evolution of a young scientist doing fieldwork in remote locations to the major thinker who has changed the way we think about global warming.   In over thirty pieces, Flannery writes about his journeys in the jungles of New Guinea and Indonesia, about the extraordinary people he met and the species he discovered. He writes about matters as wide-ranging as love, insects, population, water, and the stresses we put on the environment. He shows us how we can better predict our future by understanding the profound history of life on Earth. And he chronicles the seismic shift in the world’s attitude toward climate change. An Explorer’s Notebook is classic Flannery—wide-ranging, eye-opening science, conveyed with richly detailed storytelling.   “Tim Flannery is in the league of all-time great explorers like Dr. David Livingstone.” —Sir David Attenborough

    Ever since the ancient greeks sculpted the first kouros, children have been a source of inspiration for some of the world’s greatest artists. Whether portraits of their own children, friends, and family members, or a nostalgic psychological portrayal of the artist’s own youth, depictions of children in art remain arresting examples of an intersection between the picturesque innocence of childhood and the methodical work of adult artistry. In this delightful new puzzle book, children get a chance to see little boys and girls just like them as portrayed by great artists, learning about how children grew up throughout history while experiencing a genuine connection with works of artistic genius.

    Do you want to discover more, choose wisely and deep-dive into the amazing world of Italian wine? 
    In this seven-day guide, you will gain a simple-to-digest lesson on Italian wines, taking you from any starting point, to being able to select, taste, pair and pour an outstanding Italian variety. If you are currently at a fairly average stage in your wine knowledge and need a book where a plane ticket to Italy is not required, then this book is for you. 
    Do you need the skills to be able to deliver the right bottle of wine for all social occasions, and start to raise your game from just Pinot Grigio or Merlot? Then we are here for you. Drinking and sharing wine is one of life’s great pleasures, and even better if you know what on earth you’re doing. And we plan to get you to exactly that point with clear explanations, visual maps and example wines to add to your growing collections. 
    These seven days take you through everything from knowing Italian labels and the 20 wine regions, spreading across 695,000 hectares, to knowing how to store wine correctly. We give you takeaway lessons each day, such as how to open the bottle and pour a sophisticated glass. You will also be able to identify aromas with specific visual tools provided, and ultimately be able to pair the right wine with the right foods. Finally, we give you a daily Wine of the Day to try each evening with us and put theory into practise, as well as our final Top 10 chosen wishlist on our final day together. 
    This audio will help you navigate the world of Italian wine, even if you are starting from zero knowledge.
