Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light. I've been looking around for weeks trying to figure out a way to acquire Bill Brandt's Perspectives of Nude. The few photos of that series I had seen seemed so outside of the frame of reference of nude photography that I wanted to see and understand more about it. But I can't afford this never reprinted 1961 book. Shadow and Light, it turns out, is a retrospective of his whole carreer including some of the nudes, and I'm very glad I got it because Brandt's earlier work, particularly his photographies of Northern England before WW2 are striking both in what they depict and in the compositional flair that Brandt seems to have at all times, not matter what his subject matter is. The book has a detailed but not too long biographical and artistic notice at the front, very well written and legible. It then details his work in roughly 5 sections : Photos of London, Photos of the North, Portraits, Landscapes and Nudes. In reality this distinction is only partly relevant, at least for the last three because his nudes are conceived as landscapes but are also portraits. Stunning book with stunning photographs throughout.
Zania and her friends must contend with storms, pirates, sorcery and even other exiles from the Throne of the Sun. But their greatest test will come when they reach the elven kingdoms -- a test which may tear their bonds of friendship apart and change their lives forever.

I'm reading 'The Killer', the complete graphic novel series. I'm a fourth into the book and pleasantly surprised. I feared this might be just some simplistic take on a murderous person's lifeas with 'American Psycho'but this book has a few things going for it, especially during some of the protagonist anti-hero's inner discussions. At times, philosophical. Other times, nearly depressed. The book is quite carefully written.
It'll be interesting to see the film that's based on this book the film is written by Andrew Kevin Walker, mainly known for having written 'Se7en', the film. David Fincher directs this film (having also directed 'Se7en') and Michael Fassbender plays the lead rle:

Olen lukenut reilut 21 % Susan Cainin Bittersweet -kirjasta. Thn menness kirja on ollut hienoinen pettymys. Kirjailijan aikaisempi Quiet-teos mullisti elmni, mutta en odottanut uuden kirjan tekevn samaa. Odotin silti aika paljon enemmn.
Kirja alkoi kiinnostavasti, mutta alun jlkeen lukukokemus on ollut aika tahmainen. Minun on jotenkin vaikea saada kiinni siit, ett mit Susan haluaa kirjassaan sanoa.
Kirjan ensimminen viidennes on ollut tynn erilaisia tarinoita, joilla tuntuu olevan hirven vhn tekemist keskenn. Huomaan usein tarinoita lukiessa etsivni niiden yhteytt kirjan aihealueeseen. Ne ovat niin vaikealla ja maalailevalla tyylill kirjoitettu, etten aina ne niiden punaista lankaa.
Pidin Quiet-kirjasta, koska se rakensi sanomansa paitsi hyvien esimerkkien niin mys tutkitun tiedon varaan. Bittersweet tuntuu rakentuvan lhinn epmristen tarinoiden plle. Lisksi kirjassa on lsn outo uskonnollinen hhmisyys.
Tm onkin yksi piirre josta en erityisesti pid. Minulle tulee lukiessa fiilis, ett agnostikko tutkija on kntynyt uskoon, ja yritt nyt houkutella lukijoitaan omaan maailmaansa. Jonkun ilmin selittminen uskonnollisilla teksteill ja tarinoilla ei minun pss ole selittmist lainkaan.
Aion kuitenkin jatkaa kirjan lukemista koska aihealue kiinnostaa. Toivottavasti kirja saa vauhtia ja lihaa luiden ymprille. Susan onnistui edellisess teoksessa kertomaan siit, miten introverttiys ei ole vika joka pitisi korjata vaan vahvuus, josta on paljon hyty. Uskoisin hnen osaavan tehd saman katkeransuloisen tunteen kanssa

From nearly everything that goes on round me.
In other words, I know wherever I am,
Being the creature of literature I am,
