The Book of Latin American Cooking is an exotic, exciting and uncomplicated cookbook that comes with a fascinating culinary introduction and notes on all the essential ingredients. With a sudden rash of Latin American restaurants opening in London and other major cities, such as Ceviche and Lima and the chain of Las Iguanas, the British are at last getting to grips with the cooking of Latin America; a sophisticated cuisine that is as old and as complex as any in the world. First published in 1969 and written by one of the first ‘scholar cooks’, The Book of Latin American Cooking is regarded as a classic and one of only a handful of books to examine this much underappreciated cuisine. The collision of civilisations that occurred after the Spanish conquest, and the adoption by the colonisers of so many new foods such as the chilli and the pepper, the tomato, the potato, chocolate, French beans and avocados, down to the very staple, maize, means that Latin American cookery is a hybrid of infinite and unique combinations. Elisabeth Lambert Ortiz was the very first writer to encourage British and American enthusiasm for the food of Latin America and the Caribbean. Ortiz introduces the reader to the subtle marriages of texture and flavour which distinguish the cooking of South America from Peru to Chile.

In recent years, the concept of kitchens has been changing. From being a place only thought of for preparing meals, it has become a meeting point for families and friends, and often serves as the core of one’s home. Making this a cosy place where functionality, aesthetics, and comfort seamlessly blend together can be quite the challenge. There are endless possibilities when designing a kitchen, offering us a chance for total creative freedom where avant-garde or vintage styles can be mixed without a problem. Several soft or tones and shades of white can be employed depending on the feeling you wish to convey, and you can choose an outstanding design for its simplicity and its linearity, or include ornamental additions and small storage spaces to add extra character.

A Multidisciplinary building is generally used by the general public, and one that includes large multi-purpose spaces. Each activity area leads into a hall, which acts as a common link between them, thus creating a dynamic area where information, relations, leisure and culture are intermingled and mutually enhanced. Some multidisciplinary buildings are cultural centres which include an auditorium, a theatre, rehearsal area, events room...others are sports facilities which contain different pitches and courts, for basketball, indoor football, etc. combined with educational areas such as libraries, and areas set aside for workshops.

Rehabilitate, in the strict sense of the word, means to enable again, to enable once more, just that this time we don’t turn back to the past but to the future. This time the end is to guarantee the life of the building in question and frequently implies its complete modernization and sometimes, even shifting its use.

We are perfectly capable of differentiating between certain products simply using their packaging as a reference point. In this book our aim has been to find a different and more contemporary concept for compiling the material. We are referring to the concept of “illustration”. We shall encounter authentic works of art made out of different materials and a variety of techniques, in what is more contemporary packaging. We have sorted the material into different categories such as Food, Beverages, and Cosmetics products and on this occasion, we also thought it was apt to include Projects created by students - this category covers these new designers’ trends, and also more recent studies, which show us a new vision of the world of packaging.

It is easy to see why brands often turn to depictions of animals in their identity materials. A brand can turn to the figure of an animal to evoke freedom, pride, or power, or just as easily associate themselves with loyalty, reliability, or playfulness. Restaurants may use them to artistically touch on the contents of their menu or their particular ideology; corporations to distinguish themselves in a world of plain symbols and vector art. Animal Graphics explores the wide range of possibilities with animal imagery, capturing these wild designs in their native habitats of artwork, publications, and personal and corporate branding and identities.

Simultaneously frightening and familiar, the image of the skull is the closest thinghuman civilization has ever seen to a universal aesthetic totem. Although the power of its iconic form originates from its association with death, it has come to represent so much more. Skullture takes a comprehensive approach while examining this phenomenon, taking into account both visual and conceptual considerations of the skull throughout history. The book explores the connections of Aztec religious iconography to Damien Hirst and the Ramones to Eighteenth Century funerary practices without ever losing sight of the fact, that while fashion changes, the visual staying power of the human skull carries on. Skullture presents different aesthetic uses of the skull as well as its various cultural resonances through myriad disciplines of art design and fashion. The list of more than 70 contributors includes; Emilio Garcia, Lucy Hardie, Haroshi, Dionne Marshall, Alexandre Orion, Jim Skull, Ian Strange, Didier Ra, Vhils and Yohji Yamamoto.
