Summary

They met in 1928, Frida Kahlo was then 21 years old and Diego Rivera was twice her age. He was already an international reference, she only aspired to become one.
An intense artistic creation, along with pain and suffering, was generated by this tormented union, in particular for Frida. Constantly in the shadow of her husband, bearing his unfaithfulness and her jealousy, Frida exorcised the  pain on canvas, and won progressively the public’s interest. On both continents, America and Europe, these commited artists proclaimed their freedom and left behind them the traces of their exceptional talent.
In this book, Gerry Souter brings together both biographies and underlines with passion the link which existed between the two greatest Mexican artists of the  twentieth century.
Available since: 01/07/2014.

    A hilarious examination of faux pas for fans of Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened.  
    Humankind is doomed. Especially you. It's already too late. From overstaying your welcome at a party to leaving passive-aggressive Post-its on your roommate's belongings to letting your date know the extent of the Internet reconnaissance you did on them - you're destined to embarrass yourself again and again. In You Blew It!, Josh Gondelman, comedian and cocreator of the Modern Seinfeld twitter account, teams up with Joe Berkowitz, an equally wry and ruthless social observer, to dissect a range of painfully hilarious faux pas. Breaking down the code violations of modern culture - particularly our fervent, ridiculous addiction to technology - Gondelman and Berkowitz will keep you laughing as they explore how social blunders are simply part of the mystery that is you.

    “Jennie’s blend of witchcraft and hygge resonates so deeply with me. In Hearth and Home Witchcraft, Jennie’s book is a joyful and supportive exploration of domestic witchcraft. Nourishment and comfort are important themes here, as is accessibility; you don't need a background in magick to start exploring hearth-craft.” —Arin Murphy-Hiscock, author of The Green Witch, The House Witch, and other books For author Jennie Blonde, witchcraft is, in and of itself, comforting. Sure, there are not-so-comfortable parts as well—working with the shadow, coming face to face with that which holds you back. Jennie’s witchcraft is about connecting with the magic of nature, your higher self, and something beyond—a deity, deities, Spirit, the universe—and being comfortable with your true self in all aspects of your life. “In times of anxiety,” Jennie writes, “I turn to my practice. When I need a moment of calm and reflection, I retreat to my sacred space for quiet meditation, pulling tarot cards, and journaling to nourish my soul. When I want to nourish my family, I turn to my garden and herbs and cauldron (my stockpot) for a bit of kitchen witchery. When I wish to nourish my body, I turn to mindful movement, self-care rituals, and spell work. And throughout the day, every day, there are small rituals I perform to keep me connected to my practice. It’s all of those things together that are the heart of my craft.”Hearth and Home Witchcraft explores the following topics:  rituals for protection and cleansing the hearth and home  kitchen witchery, creating a kitchen altar, and recipes and rituals for nourishment  the witch’s altar, tools, and spells, and creating a sacred space, no matter the size of the home  herbs and plants, grounding rituals, and meditations to connect you with the earth  witchy self-care, complete with rituals and recipes for ritual bath salts, oils, balms, and more

    Discover the culinary heritage of America’s capitol with this guide to Washington, D.C.’s historic restaurants and storied local eateries.   While today’s foodies enjoy the latest culinary trends of Logan Circle and the H Street corridor, Washington's first true restaurants opened around 1830. Waves of immigrants introduced a global mix of ingredients to the capital’s eager palates by opening eateries like the venerable China Doll Gourmet and Cleveland Park's Roma Restaurant.   By the twentieth century, the variety and quality of cuisine was astounding. Diners could have tea at Garfinckel's Greenbrier or lunch at local favorites such as Little Tavern Diner or Ben's Chili Bowl. For an elegant evening, fine restaurants like Rive Gauche and the Monocle satisfied the most sophisticated gastronome.   With careful research and choice recipes, “Streets of Washington” blogger John DeFerrari chronicles the culinary and social history of the capital through its restaurants, tasting his way from the lavish Gilded Age dining halls of the Willard Hotel to the Hot Shoppe's triple-decker Mighty Mo.
