Due amici programmano un viaggio in auto molto particolare, da Bari a Pechino passando da Vladivostok, e per renderlo ancora più speciale decidono di compierlo con una Fiat 500 del 1973. Un viaggio attraverso due continenti in totale autonomia, con pochi bagagli, un budget limitato e senza alcun supporto tecnico, su di un’auto vecchia di oltre trent’anni. Percorrendo sedicimila chilometri a una media di trenta all’ora, i protagonisti di La bizzarra impresa impiegheranno più di tre mesi per raggiungere la loro meta. Un viaggio in tutta lentezza che darà loro modo di guardarsi attorno e di parlare con la gente, cogliendo l’immagine di un mondo che sta rapidamente cambiando a seguito dei cataclismi politici che ne hanno modificato i confini e le certezze.

Marco Polo was nicknamed "Marco of the millions" because his Venetian countrymen took the grandiose stories of his travels to be exaggerated, if not outright lies. As he lay dying, his priest, family, and friends offered him a last chance to confess his mendacity, and Marco, it is said, replied "I have not told the half of what I saw and did." Now, in his new novel The Journeyer, Gary Jennings has imagined the half that Marco left unsaid as even more elaborate and adventurous than the tall tales thought to be lies. From the palazzi and back streets of medieval Venice to the sumptuous court of Kublai Khan, from the perfumed sexuality of the Levant to the dangers and rigors of travel along the Silk Road, Marco meets all manner of people, survives all manner of danger, and, insatiably curious, becomes an almost compulsive collector of customs, languages and women. In more than two decades of travel, Marco was variously a merchant, a warrior, a lover, a spy, even a tax collector - but always a journeyer, unflagging in his appetite for new experiences, regretting only what he missed. Here - recreated and reimagined with all the splendor, the love of adventure, the zest for the rare and curious that are Jennings's hallmarks - is the epic account, at once magnificent and delightful, of the greatest real-life adventurer in human history.

Fiat has built millions of vehicles since 1899 but the company is perhaps best known for its ability to produce small, economical, characterful cars. Great Small Fiats traces this concept from the birth of the 500A "Topolino" in the 1930s up to the current Panda and a hint of the proposed Nuova 500. Each of the selected models are described in detail from their conception through to current ownership in the hands of collectors and enthusiasts. The chapters include practical information on buying and running a small Fiat and restoration advice for the older cars. Also included are Fiats built under license outside of Italy and the Fiat-derived "etceterini" coachbuilt and competition cars.

Jason Fulford has arranged his third collection of photographs into eight distinct chapters that can be read as a game, a series of essays, an abstract visual narrative or all of the above. "The intention of this edit and layout," Fulford explains, "is to create as many relationships as possible between the pictures as well as the chapters. I like the idea of a meticulously planned-out event that remains unpredictable." The work in 'Raising Frogs for $ $ $' was selected from the photographer's personal archive, from images taken in various countries between 1997 and 2005. Fulford's photographs have been used on book covers by Don Delillo, John Updike, Bertrand Russell, Terry Eagleton, Ha Jin and many others.
