              Photographs have the power to reveal, to condemn, to celebrate and to catalyze. How that power has been used and abused in the past 150 years is the subject of this book. The photographs are diverse and varied, from Marilyn Monroe to the mushroom cloud of the Atom bomb.

              Chesapeake Bay is a study in contrasts. Great cities perch on its rivers, but so do sleepy little towns and great plantations. And there are the famous skipjacks, the last commercial sailing fleet in America. Chesapeake Country is a gorgeously photographed guide to the region--to... its rich history, to its wildlife, to the varied ways people have lived and still live on the water. The second edition of this best seller includes a new introduction by the author, describing recent developments in the life of the bay.

              In this comprehensive volume, Sarah Sherrill examines Western carpet design and production from the Middle Ages to the present, in styles that range from magnificent palatial creations to delightful folk designs. With hundreds of dazzling illustrations, Sherrill's authoritative t...ext includes chapters on Moorish weavers and the golden age of carpets in Spain; the exquisite carpets of the Savonnerie, Aubusson, and Beauvais in France; productions from Moorfields, Exeter, and Axminster in England; the intriguing but little-studied rugs of Eastern European countries; the charming and resourceful rugs of America; and an important chapter on modern designs that offers an extensive survey of rugs created by leading artists and architects of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Sherrill's stimulating text, based on years of research, brims with interesting new findings, not only on the history and design of these works, but also technological developments that had an often unrecognized effect on rug design and production.

              The fourth in AbbevilleGCOs series of unusual, illustrated vacation guides, Bicycling Along the WorldGCOs Most Exceptional Routes follows the success of Cooking School Holidays in the WorldGCOs Most Exceptional Places, Spas: Exceptional Destinations Around the World, and Walking ...the WorldGCOs Most Exceptional Trails. In this new guide, excursions range from an easy ride through the Loire Valley in France, with stops along the way to taste local wines, to a more challenging trail through Tibet into Nepal. Among the other destinations is a route into northwest Ireland, which winds through an unspoiled landscape of lakes and rivers, and a trip beginning in Tallinn, Estonia-where you'll have time to explore the cityGCOs historic streets and squares before heading out into the countryside-and ending in St. Petersburg, Russia. Included in this book is a holiday to suit everyoneGCOs interest and ability. The trips last between seven and fourteen days and are easy to organize yourself. Alternatively, the author provides information about specialist travel companies who will make all the reservations for you. You can opt to travel with a group or ride independently at your own pace, following a set of detailed notes and maps. Ground operators are on hand along the way to service your bike and make any repairs needed. Whether you prefer the countryside with long, winding downhill runs or being dropped off on a mountaintop to admire the view before riding down through the terrain, this book will help you discover an extraordinary outdoors vacation.
