How many ways are there to live? Clearly no one has ever counted them; many are tied to cultural or religious traditions, popular consensus or aesthetic conventions. Be that as it may, it is evident that Massimo Listri has documented a significant proportion of these modus vivendi both theoretical and actual. Throughout his long career as a photographer, Listri has been a welcome guest in thousands of homes. With his photographs he has tried to render the subtle nuances and sense of life that pervades each one of them: the breath, the tastes, and the passions of those who live there. He has captured a living image constructed of light and shadow with all-encompassing views and evocative details; photographs that combine a conceptual classicism with a modern purism and serve as a touchstone to kindle the sensation of 'home' through a trompe-l'oeil, a picture window or an arrangement of paintings. Varying in style from classic to contemporary, with locations from the Mediterranean to the Alps, from urban settings to rural and indigenous areas, from east to west, the fifty-five houses found here are amongst the most evocative in the world. It is not without reason that this book is entitled 'Casa Bella' – these living spaces are seen from within, mediated by the vision of the proprietor, interior designer, or architect who conceived them. Taken together these images describe an infinite house, ever in progress, and in their own way recount a history of Man and his notion of 'the beautiful'.

Although design infuses every object in the material world and gives form to immaterial processes as well, it is only recently that design itself has become the focus of intellectual debate. In Design Discourse, Victor Margolin gathers together a body of new writing in the emerging field of design studies. The contributors argue in different ways for a rethinking of design in light of its cultural significance and its powerful position in today's society.

Dende a súa intensa etapa con Voces Ceibes, a finais da década de 1960, ata a súa participación no grupo Doa e logo o regreso en solitario despois duns anos de silencio, Miro Casabella puxo música e voz á poesía galega medieval e aos poetas galegos contemporáneos. Comprometido co país, coa cultura e co idioma galego, algunhas das cancións de Miro Casabella son xa himnos, símbolos dun tempo.

Networks of Design maps a new methodological territory in design studies, conceived as a field of interdisciplinary inquiry and practice informed by a range of responses to actor network theory. It brings together a rich body of current work by researchers in the social sciences, technology, material culture, cultural geography, information technology, and systems design, and design theory and history. This collection will be invaluable to students and researchers in many areas of design studies and to design practitioners receptive to new and challenging notions of what constitutes the design process. Over ninety essays are thematically organised to address five aspects of the expanded notions of mediation, agency, and collaboration posited by network theory: Ideas, Things, Technology, Texts, and People. The collection also includes an important new essay on rethinking the concept of design by Bruno Latour, one of the most influential figures in the philosophy and sociology of science and technology and a pioneer of actor network theory, and essays deriving from forum discussions involving designers and designer-makers responsive to actor network theory. Rather than an anthology of previously-published essays, Networks of Design presents work in progress on design theory and its applications. It is the outcome of a live and vigorous debate on the possibilities and actualities offered by actor network led conceptualisations of the relationships and processes constituting design. All the essays, many collaborative, derive from papers presented at the international conference of the Design History Society held at University College Falmouth, UK in the Autumn of 2008.
