New in Paperback! In much the way that the CD replaced the album, the poster has waned as a messaging vehicle. The poster has now become a postcard and e-mail blast, leaving many to long for the lost age when posters were not only major promotional vehicles, but also artwork worthy of framing. Some of the world's best designers just could not stand idle while the poster fell by the wayside. They turned to the poster for personal expression and as an outlet from more restrictive mediums. This book showcases their breathtaking artwork, which has proven that the poster can still serve as a worthy communications tool. In doing so, they've brought the poster back to prominence. In this book, John Foster has compiled the world's finest new work at the height of this rebirth. There is currently no book on the market that can claim it features a "definitive" poster collection.

The history of the clans reaches back into the mists of antiquity. On the strength of a surname alone, families can claim kinship with people who existed a thousand years ago. The origins of the distinctive cloth patterns collectively known as tartan are, however, shrouded in controversy. Tartans are now inextricably linked with the story of the clans and are the most evocative symbol of the clan, as well as of Scotland. While kilts have been worn in Ireland as long as they have in Scotland, they were of plain cloth in shades of green, brown, or yellow. Tartan was once a uniquely Scottish phenomenon, though it has spread to Ireland as well as other parts of the world relatively recently. Most of the Scottish tartans as we know them today date back no further than the 1820s, when King George IV visited Scotland dressed in a kilt, complete with flesh-colored tights. This sight -- while perhaps rather ludicrous -- triggered the craze for tartan that endures to this day. Now, the number of tartans runs to many hundreds. Clans & Tartans includes over 300 tartans, their derivation and ancestry, and a short history of the clan associated with them. They are listed alphabetically in an easy-to-use format with sections for both Scottish and Irish clans and tartans. Discover the proud traditions of Scotland's and Ireland's clans in this beautifully illustrated and informative book. Book jacket.

Paris Armstrong never saw it coming. With two grown children and a lovely home in Connecticut, Paris was happy with her marriage, her family, her life. So when her husband of twenty-four years said they needed to talk, Paris couldn't imagine what he was about to say. "I want a divorce," Peter tells her. Just like that, the husband she adored had dumped her for a younger woman. And just like that, Peter and his thirty-one-year-old lover had made their plans for their future, leaving Paris to pick up the pieces of a shattered life. Within days, Peter was gone. And Paris was left to figure out how she intended to get through the next day, let alone the rest of her life. The task could not have been more painful. First came the tears. Then the excruciating attempts by well-meaning friends to "fix her up" with men who paled in comparison to Peter. Worse yet, she still loved him. Finally, Paris realized she was in a fight for her very survival. Drastic measures were called for. Even her shrink agreed. It was time to move - as far away as possible, just after Peter remarried. Paris had never felt, or been, more alone. Saying goodbye to the world she knew and loved, Paris heads west, to San Francisco, and discovers being single in a world full of men who were too young, too old, too married, or too good to be true. For Paris, the list seemed endless . . . the charming commitment-phobe . . . the drunken Neanderthal . . . the young Frenchman - so adorably sexy she almost forgot about his age, and did, for a while. With her dating track record veering between disappointing and disastrous, and her daughter now engaged to a man Paris's age, Paris finally comes to the conclusion that romance is not in her future. That's when her small circle of offbeat, loving friends becomes more important than ever before. And a decision Paris makes only for herself changes her life once more. The secret, she discovers finally, is in finding the gifts in life's unexpected twists and turns, and turning despair into freedom and loss into joy. In a poignant, wickedly funny novel about getting dumped and getting over it, about tackling life with both courage and laughter, Danielle Steel explores what it means to start over, whether you wanted to or not, and finding something better than you had before.
