It’s not just rap music. Hip-hop has transformed theater, dance, performance, poetry, literature, fashion, design, photography, painting, and film, to become one of the most far-reaching and transformative arts movements of the past two decades. American Book Award-winning journalist Jeff Chang, author of the acclaimed Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation, assembles some of the most innovative and provocative voices in hip-hop to assess the most important cultural movement of our time. It’s an incisive look at hip-hop arts in the voices of the pioneers, innovators, and mavericks. With an introductory survey essay by Chang, the anthology includes: Greg Tate, Mark Anthony Neal, Brian “B+” Cross, and Vijay Prashad examining hip-hop aesthetics in the wake of multiculturalism. Joan Morgan and Mark Anthony Neal discussing gender relations in hip-hop. Hip-hop novelists Danyel Smith and Adam Mansbach on “street lit” and “lit hop”. Actor, playwright, and performance artist Danny Hoch on how hip-hop defined the aesthetics of a generation.

LIFE One Nation

LIFE One Nation

During our nation’s most trying times, it has been LIFE that has provided the images that help us understand, remember, and in the process, renew. Now the editors of LIFE have assembled a moving, brilliantly illustrated account of tragedy and triumph. This is about firemen going in amidst the rubble, but it is also about a Frenchman in Paris holding up a sign that says, “We are all Americans.” This is about our leaders taking charge, but it is also about schoolchildren in Iowa hanging an American flag on a tree in their backyard.

Beginning with the history of lower Manhattan, the book explains what happened on September 11, profiles many of the heroes, victims and rescuers (fireman, police, doctors, and rescue dogs among them), and paints an inspiring portrait if a nation and world coming together in sadness, pride and resolve.The book is more than photographs. Explanatory text runs throughout, and the book also includes a selection of original essays about America and September 11, written by such notables as Maya Angelou, Thomas Keneally (Schindler’s List), Stephen Ambrose, Melissa Fay Greene (The Temple Bombing), AndreiCodrescu, Gordon Parks, Doug Stanton (In Harm’s Way), Bob Greene (Duty), James Bradley (Flags of Our Fathers), and others.

All profits from the sales of this book will be donated to American Red Cross, September 11th Fund, International Association of Fire Fighters, New York Fraternal Order of Police WTC Fund, The National Organization for Victim Assistance, and The Twin Towers Fund. When Americans think of photographic journalism at its finest, they think of LIFE magazine.

This book will draw upon the best photographers employed by TIME, LIFE, PEOPLE and other magazines. Many of the photographers have had their own collections published in book form.

Hello, Is This Planet Earth?

Hello, Is This Planet Earth?

The #1 international bestseller: An astronaut’s tour of our planet from the heavens, featuring 150 mesmerizing photographs (with commentary) from the International Space Station.

During his six-month mission to the International Space Station, astronaut Tim Peake became the first British astronaut to complete a spacewalk — and, perhaps more astonishingly, the first to run an entire marathon in space. During his historic mission, he captured hundreds of dazzling photographs, the very best of which are collected here.

Tim captures the majesty of the cosmos and of the planet we call home: breath-taking aerial photos of the world’s cities illuminated at night, the natural beauty of the northern lights, and unforgettable views of oceans, mountains, and deserts.

Tim’s lively stories about life in space appear alongside these photographs, including the tale from which the title is taken: his famous wrong number dialed from space, when he accidentally called a stranger and asked: “Hello, is this planet Earth?”

With this truly unique perspective on the incredible sights of our planet, Tim demonstrates that while in space, hundreds of miles above his friends and family, he never felt closer to home.
The Camera

The Camera

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) produced some of the 20th century’s most iconic photographic images and helped nurture the art of photography through his creative innovations and peerless technical mastery.

The Camera–the first volume in Adams’ celebrated series of books on photographic techniques–has taught generations of photographers how to harness the camera’s artistic potential. This time-honored handbook distills the knowledge gained through a lifetime in photography and remains as vital today as when it was first published.

Along with visualization, image management, Adams’ famous Zone System, and other keys to photographic artistry, The Camera covers 35mm, medium-format, and large-format view cameras, while offering detailed advice on camera components such as lenses, shutters, and light meters. Beautifully illustrated with photographs as well as instructive line drawings, this classic manual belongs on every serious photographer’s bookshelf.

“Adams is a clear-thinking writer whose concepts cannot but help the serious photographer.” – New York Times

“A master-class kind of guide from an undisputed master.” – Publishers Weekly

Over 1 million copies sold.

Publisher’s Note: This ebook of The Camera works best as a digital companion to the print edition. The ebook was produced by electronically scanning and digitizing a print edition, and as a result, your reading device may display images with halftone or moiré patterns.
Pine Forest in Snow, Yosemite National Park, California, 1932

Pine Forest in Snow, Yosemite National Park, California, 1932

The thirty-two Ansel Adams posters published by Little, Brown over the last fifteen years have sold nearly 2 million copies, making the series perhaps the most successful single-artist poster line of all time. Now, to update the series for a new century and a new generation, Little, Brown and The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust have commissioned Pentagram, the renowned international design firm, to create a fresh look for the posters.

The two posters pictured here introduce Pentagram’s beautiful new design. The images are larger and the sans serif typeface lends an elegant simplicity to the overall presentation. In response to requests, sheet sizes have been standardized so that commercially available poster frames can be used. And to highlight the fact that these are the only authorized Ansel Adams posters published, each will feature a striking blind-embossed seal. The one thing that has not changed is the painstaking attention to quality — the superb duotone printing and heavy coated stock that are hallmarks of the series. Pine Forest in Snow is a superb representation of Yosemite in winter.
