In 2006, to fulfill a long-held dream, widely acclaimed photographer Michael Poliza and friend Stefan Breuer undertook a helicopter journey across Africa. Skimming close to the ground, they flew over 17 countries on their zigzag route from Hamburg to Cape Town. Poliza's alluring - and often surprising - photographs share this exceptional journey with the world. With a bird's-eye view, we witness the astounding beauty, scale and diversity of this imposing continent. The accompanying texts give a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the photographs and brief background to some of the most fascinating subject matters. A rare treat, both for the lover of fine photography and for the nature enthusiast. 120 colour photographs

New York is probably the most photographed city in the world. It is hard to resist the fascination for the Big Apple, and many have tried to visually capture the singularly unique “Empire State of Mind.” It’s not just the classic landmarks that belong to an emotional portrait of the metropolis, but also the bustling life in the urban canyons of Manhattan and its neighborhoods. And this is why Bernhard Hartmann never approaches New York City from just one perspective. He employs multiple angles: brilliant studies that make the sculptural details of architectural icons, both old and new, come alive, alongside snapshots of ephemeral, shadowy pedestrians hurrying by on rain-soaked asphalt illuminated by neon sign reflections. Hartmann is especially taken with the city’s lights, as his black-and-white photos twinkle in an almost magical way. His color photographs possess a near-hypnotic quality that make the nighttime neon-lit streets feel like an homage to decades past, and his aerial photos almost tangibly pull you into the scene. Despite the technical refinement and exquisite detail of Hartmann’s photos, their unequalled atmospheric intensity is what truly makes them special: he combines the latest photographic techniques with the glamour of historic pictures. The result is a dazzling, contemporary portrait of the most amazing city in the world, one that—like your own first visit to New York—you will never forget.

Catching The Light : A Journey Across Myanmar

Much has changed in Burma since Birgit Neiser first visited in 1981. The country is now known as Myanmar, and military rule – which lasted nearly half a century – has given way to a tentative democratic process. Returning in 2010, at the cusp of this groundbreaking shift, Neiser began spending two months each year in Myanmar. To document ways of life she knew would soon start to disappear and to reach areas inaccessible to the casual visitor, the author travelled across the country – on the back of timber trucks in the mountains of Kachin state, by motorbike in northern Shan State, and onboard an old fishing vessel in the Andaman Sea. The result is Catching the Light – a dazzling collection of photographs that captures a unique moment in Myanmar’s social, cultural, and political history.

For centuries the pub has been an essential part of London’s cultural and social fabric. This beautifully illustrated book takes readers through the doors of 25 historically and architecturally significant London pubs. Through photographs specially commissioned for this project, readers can explore these institutions—from snob screens to 400-hundred-year-old flagstone floors. Engaging texts highlight what makes each pub so special, their place in London’s history, the personalities who have frequented them, the events that occurred inside, and the ways pubs have contributed phrases such as “on the wagon” and “one for the road” to the modern lexicon. This book reveals why the Lamb and Flag in Covent Garden earned the nickname the “Bucket of Blood,” and features a pub that Charles Dickens described as a “great rambling queer old place”. Furthermore, the book muses over the chances that Casanova paid a visit to The Dog and Duck in Soho, and uncovers the location of Charles De Gaulle’s favorite wartime watering hole. These and other amusing anecdotal histories make this fascinating and luxuriously illustrated book a must-have for anyone with a love for the good old London pub.

Even with the loveliest hotel room and a beckoning pool, the perfect vacation can be spoiled when the restaurant forces you to make a meal out of side dishes. For vegetarians and vegans, a hotel vacation suiting their culinary lifestyle can still be quite a challenge. But there are outstanding alternatives out there, you just have to find them! Travel journalists, Thomas and Karen Klein, had the same thought, so, in 2011, they joined forces with Peter Haunert to launch the hotel partner and website, VeggieHotels, a portal featuring 100% vegetarian hotels and inns. In addition to purely vegetarian-vegan hotels, more establishments are offering guests outstanding vegan cuisine alongside more conventional dishes, so the founders of VeggieHotels responded to this trend in 2015 by expanding their selection of vegan-friendly accommodations with another new website called, VeganWelcome. They shine a spotlight on wonderful places run with great love and enthusiasm that are paving the way for a kind of tourism based on ethical principles and sustainability. And their success shows just how right they were: today, more than 300 hotels and inns in over 60 countries are VeggieHotels and VeganWelcome members. Guests at these establishments can savor new and creative vegetarian and vegan cuisine that will satisfy even the most jaded palate. This volume introduces the best hotels from the VeggieHotels and VeganWelcome websites with gorgeous photos and detailed information on each property’s special features—from cooking classes to yoga retreats. The locations include everything from trendy downtown hotels in vegan hotspots Berlin and London to a holistic health resort on Bali. Top chefs reveal their secret recipes as well, so your culinary get-away can continue long after you’ve returned home.
