Parks

A never-before-seen collection of United States National Park Service maps This book brings togethere a collection of over 400 maps produced by the United States National Park Service from 1910 to today. Photographer Brian Kelley has impulsively archived the rarely seen treasures over the past three years, uncovering a design portfolio with little to no credit to their respective designers. The growing collection displays a progressive design approach, from more typographic-driven covers, to the proliferation of duotone print production, culminating in the Unigrid system developed by Italian designer Massimo Vignelli in the 1970s.

Medici Money

Medici Money

Their name is a byword for immense wealth and power, but before their renown as art patrons and noblemen, the Medicis built their fortune on banking. Banking in the fifteenth century, even at the height of the Renaissance, meant running afoul of the Catholic Church's prohibition against usury. It required more than merely financial skills to make a profit, and the legendary Medicis--most famously Cosimo and Lorenzo ("the Magnificent")--were masterly at the political, diplomatic, military, and even metaphysical tools that were needed to maintain their family's position. Parks uncovers the intrigues, dodges, and moral qualities that gave the Medicis their edge. Evoking the richness of the Florentine Renaissance and the Medicis' glittering circle, replete with artists, popes, and kings, Medici Money is a look into the origins of modern banking and its troubled relationship with art and religion. --From publisher description.

Great City Parks

Great City Parks

Great City Parks is a celebration of some of the finest achievements of landscape architecture in the public realm. It is a comparative study of thirty significant public parks in major cities across Western Europe and North America. Collectively, they give a clear picture of why parks have been created, how they have been designed, how they are managed, and what plans are being made for them at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Based on unique research including extensive site visits and interviews with the managing organisations, this book is illustrated throughout with clear plans and photographs– with this new edition featuring full colour throughout. Tate updates his seminal 2001 work with 10 additional parks, including: The High Line in NYC, Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam. All the previous city parks have also been updated and revised to reflect current usage and management. This book reflects a belief that well planned, well designed and well managed parks and park systems will continue to make major contributions to the quality of life in an increasingly urbanized world.

Rosa Parks Updated Edition

Rosa Parks Updated Edition

This is the fascinating story of a woman's defiance and the movement it inspired.On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks transitioned from seamstress and secretary to an American civil rights icon by refusing to give up her seat on a bus. Her quiet act of defiance sparked the bus boycotts in Montgomery, Alabama, which launched the career of Martin Luther King Jr. and demonstrated the effectiveness of unified peaceful protests. Parks remained a prominent activist as the civil rights movement progressed, traveling around the country to speak at various events and eventually founding the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self-Development. Throughout her life, she advocated an end to violence, discrimination, and injustice - a message that has been carried on since her death in 2005 by the many Americans she inspired.This updated biography celebrates the legacy of the woman known as the mother of the civil rights movement. Featuring full-color photographs, as well as Did You Know? fact boxes and a selection of quotes from Parks, this comprehensive resource is essential for readers interested in this inspirational woman.
