'Exceedingly well-researched and packed with fascinating lore, it should appeal to avid birders and general readers alike' - WALL STREET JOURNAL 'As gleaming and mesmeric as its tiny subject' VANITY FAIR 'Ever thoughtful and engaging, Jon Dunn pursues these dazzling creatures through dust and jungle to the chillier shores at the far end of the world' - BENEDICT ALLEN 'Enticing ... brilliant ... a warm-hearted and enthusiastic triumph of nature writing' - TIM DEE No family of birds has quite the compelling allure offered by the hummingbird. For centuries they have captured our imaginations: revered by Native Americans, coveted by European collectors and admired worldwide for their jewel-like plumage, acrobatic flight and immense character. Though their renown extends throughout the world, hummingbirds are found exclusively in the Americas. Small in stature yet fiercely tenacious, they have conquered every habitat imaginable: from boreal woodlands to deserts, mangrove swamps to volcanic slopes, and on islands both tropical and sub-polar. The Glitter in the Green takes us on an unforgettable journey in search of the most remarkable examples of this wildly variable family. There's the Bee Hummingbird in Cuba, the smallest species of bird to have ever lived; the diminutive Rufous Hummingbird, whose annual migration exceeds 3,000 miles; and the critically endangered Juan Fernández Firecrown, marooned on the remote Pacific island that inspired Robinson Crusoe. Jon Dunn brings us closer than ever before to these magnificent creatures, exploring a heady mix of rare birds, a history redolent with mythology, and the colourful stories of the people obsessed with hummingbirds through the ages. With great passion for his subject and a taste for adventure, Dunn transports us to wondrous landscapes from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, and invites us into the kaleidoscopic world of the hummingbird – the bird that has won the hearts and minds of mankind for millennia.

In this history of Modernism, Edward Lucie-Smith examines the historical, social and intellectual contexts that have underlain individual creativity. The book's structure is strictly chronological, rather than thematic, in order that readers can find affinities between approaches to art normally regarded as separate, such as Pop Art and Conceptualism. The main topics - architecture, painting, sculpture, photography - appear within each chapter in a fixed order.

In Song of Herself, psychiatrist and Kahlo expert Salomon Grimberg introduces and contextualizes a deeply introspective interview that Kahlo gave toward the end of her life to her friend the psychologist Olga Campos. The interview was intended to appear in a book on the creative process of artistic individuals, but it was never published. Kahlo comments candidly on her life, her loves, and her painting, and expresses her attitudes toward her body, politics, friendship, sexuality, and death, among other personal concerns. The most startling autobiographical text known on this singular woman, Kahlo's interview is accompanied by Campos's warm reflections on their relationship, a medical history oh Kahlo gathered by Dr. Henriette Begun, and a detailed psychological assessment of the artist by Dr. James Bridger Harris.
