    Delving into the wardrobes of literary icons-past and present-and the way they write about clothes provides a glimpse into the world they each inhabited and their moment in time. A testament to the notion that reading and writing never go out of style, Legendary Authors and the Clothes They Wore is sure to captivate lovers of fine literature and dedicated followers of fashion.

    A collection of icons of literature and the sartorial stories they tell, this innovative gift book presents fifty fully illustrated profiles of prominent men and women of letters, highlighting their key works, signature fashion moments from their wardrobe that express their persona, and how they influence the fashion world today. This segues into an examination of how a particularitem of clothing or style makes up part of fashion's lingua franca, getting under the skin of the fashion story and going into more detail about its historical trajectory and distinctive impact on popular culture.

    Entertaining features-revealing anecdotes about the authors and their work, archival photography, first-person quotations, little-known facts, and clothing-oriented excerpts that exemplify their writing style-make this a lively look at the authors we love.

    SCHIFF THOMAS R
    ISBN: 9781597113748
    Title: LIBRARY BOOK
    Author: SCHIFF THOMAS R
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    In pre–Revolutionary War America, libraries were member-driven collections for the elite; it was not until 1790 that Benjamin Franklin helped to establish the first public lending library. Throughout the subsequent centuries the library has evolved, but always remained central to the cultural life of the nation.

    Thomas R. Schiff’s photographs trace the history of the library through aesthetic and style while featuring legendary architects such as Charles F. McKim; Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge; and I. M. Pei.

    The Library Book beautifully captures the shifting architectural styles and missions of the library in sweeping 360-degree panoramas from the very earliest American libraries to the modernist masterpieces of Louis I. Kahn and others.

    In his introductory essay, acclaimed author and library lover Alberto Manguel considers the story of the library in America, its evolving architecture and cultural role, and how the American model reflects the archetypal idea of the universal library.

    Including brief descriptions of each unique library, this book brings bibliophiles into one hundred libraries across the nation.

    Title: MAKING SENSE : The Glamorous Story of English Grammar
    Author: CRYSTAL DAVID
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The world's best-known authority on the English language reveals the secrets and subtleties of its grammar.

    David Crystal explains grammar's rules and irregularities, shows how to navigate its snares and pitfalls, and explores its history and varieties. He gives practical guidance on how grammar may be used for different purposes and in different settings. He provides a series of insights into the stages by which children acquire grammar and shows how this can be used to guide its early instruction. He casts a mordant eye on what learned people have said about English grammar over the centuries and what they continue to say now. People have always been uneasy about points of grammar and worried that what they say may not always be what they mean. Grammar is complex but, Professor Crystal shows, it need not be daunting: the more we understand it, he argues, the more sense we shall make.

    Making Sense is as entertaining as it is instructive. David Crystal unites investigations of its nature, variations, history, learning, and teaching with a host of practical advice. Like its three companion volumes it will appeal to everyone interested in the English language and how to use it.

    Title: MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE MANUSCRIPTS
    Author: DE HAMEL CHRISTOPHER
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

    This is a book about why medieval manuscripts matter. Coming face to face with an important illuminated manuscript in the original is rather like meeting a very famous person. We may all pretend that a well-known celebrity is no different from anyone else, and yet there is an undeniable thrill in actually meeting and talking to a person of world stature.

    The idea for this book, which is entirely new, is to invite the reader into an intimate conversation with a selection of the most famous manuscripts in existence, and to let each of those manuscripts illuminate the Middle Ages and sometimes the modern world too. Meetings with Remarkable Manuscripts invites the reader to accompany the author on exclusive private visits to a dozen very varied collections, in different parts of the world, to discover twelve great manuscripts and to explore their historical and intellectual significance.
