            As a colossal statue takes shape in Renaissance Florence, the lives of a master sculptor and a struggling painter become stunningly intertwined. Florence, 1500. Fresco painter Jacopo Torni longs to make his mark in the world. But while his peers enjoy prestigious commissions, his... meager painting jobs are all earmarked to pay down gambling debts. When Jacopo hears of a competition to create Florence's greatest sculpture, he pins all his hopes on a collaboration with his boyhood companion, Michelangelo Buonarroti. But will the frustrated artist ever emerge from the shadow of his singularly gifted friend? From the author of THE PAINTER'S APPRENTICE and THE GONDOLA MAKER comes a gorgeously crafted, immersive tale of Renaissance Italy. Based on a true story.

            Humanity has reached a pivotal moment in time. With extinction looming over one million species of plants and animals, the United Nations has declared that nature is in more trouble now than at any time in human history. In light of increasing natural disasters, polluted environm...ents and rising sea levels, the present geological era has been described as the age of Anthropocene; the effect of humanity's now indelible, and irreversible, intersection with nature. In this important and timely book, these seminal questions of our time are addressed by twelve of the world's most influential contemporary photographers: Joel Sartore, Paul Nicklen, Ami Vitale, Brent Stirton, Frans Lanting, Brian Skerry, Tim Laman, Cristina Mittermeier, J Henry Fair, Richard John Seymour, George Steinmetz and Steve Winter. With compassion, insight and in compelling detail they share their extraordinary images and the stories behind them, and seek to understand what really matters now for humanity and the planet. At once shocking, illuminating and inspiring, Human Nature: Planet Earth in Our Time asks: 'What do we have?', 'What do we stand to lose?' and 'What must we change?', or is the Anthropocene Age to be humanity's last?

            Just as every home is different, so is every dog. In this stunningly photographed book of architecturally superb houses - many of them architects' own homes - we see how the presence of a dog brings warmth and life to the most dramatic spaces. From mid-century raw brick to a pent...house apartment, gracious Edwardian to Scandinavian modern, from beach house to country retreat, there is always room for a dog or two. Seemingly oblivious to designer furniture, heritage considerations or serious design aesthetics, dogs can make themselves at home anywhere. In fact, the rooms in this book are all the more appealing because of their resident dog.
