    Inspired by Nature
    Celebrated art director and stylist Hans starts off by discussing the essential components of a well-loved home. Nature is at the heart of his decorating philosophy, and contact with the natural world has been linked to reduced stress levels and improved mood. Still-lifes and displays of treasured pieces are key to his look, and Hans explains how to style vignettes that will add visual interest as well as a connection to our past. Using contrasting yet harmonious textures will engage our senses, while his favoured earthy palette creates a sense of calm and tranquillity just where we need it most. In the second part of the book, Homes, Hans takes us on a tour of real-life homes that possess a sense of comfort, contentment and beauty and will inspire the reader to create a home that offers a refuge from the wider world as well as the perfect place to welcome family and friends.

  • Living in Tuscany
    Living in Tuscany
    Under the burning Tuscan sun roll marvelous hills, vineyards, and olive groves-all postcard-perfect landscapes nestling centuries-old towns, rural villas, and contadino farmhouses. We've tracked down the best examples of such havens to paint a warm-hued picture of the look and feel of Tuscan living.

    Follow in Michelangelo's footsteps to the Eremo Santa Maria Maddalena, a medieval hermitage nestled in the steep Arezzo hillside. Take a dip in the California-style pool of Roberto Budini Gattai, the architect who turned a modest winegrower's house into a dazzling homage to David Hockney. Cool down in the tiled bedrooms of the Villa Villoresi, where, legend has it, Dante's wife took refuge during the poet's exile in the early 14th century.

    This collection gathers the region's most remarkable homes and interiors, complete with insightful captions and enthralling double spreads. Across contemporary architecture and traditional craftsmanship, minimal earthenware and decadent furniture, we discover all the natural tones and sun-kissed textures of Tuscany.

  • Notre Dame A Short History of the Meaning of Cathedrals
    Notre Dame A Short History of the Meaning of Cathedrals
    Ken Follett will donate his proceeds from this book to the charity La Fondation du Patrimoine.

    "The wonderful cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, one of the greatest achievements of European civilization, was on fire. The sight dazed and disturbed us profoundly. I was on the edge of tears. Something priceless was dying in front of our eyes. The feeling was bewildering, as if the earth was shaking" - Ken Follett

    In this short, spellbinding book, international bestselling author Ken Follett describes the emotions that gripped him when he learned about the fire that threatened to destroy one of the greatest cathedrals in the world - the Notre-Dame de Paris. Follett then tells the story of the cathedral, from its construction to the role it has played across time and history, and he reveals the influence that the Notre-Dame had upon cathedrals around the world and on the writing of one of Follett's most famous and beloved novels, The Pillars of the Earth.

    With its spectacular rose windows, majestic spire, soaring vaults, twin bell towers, and massive pipe organ, the gothic cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris has long stood as a symbol of of that city.

In stunning photographs, this volume celebrates Notre-Dame through the ages: its beginnings in 1160 and construction during the Middle Ages, its survival through the French Revolution and two World Wars, its coronations (including Napoleon's), royal weddings, and presidential funerals; its resurgence after the publication of Victor Hugo's novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, its magnificent relics and artwork; its portrayal by artists through time, and, finally, its recent near-destruction...and the miraculous efforts to save it, and restore it to its former glory and beyond.
