George Luks: 102 Paintings By Maria Tsaneva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
"I can paint with a shoestring dipped in pitch and lard . . . Technique did you say? My slats! . . . It’s in you or it isn’t. Who taught Shakespeare technique? Guts! Life! Life!... More > That’s my technique.” - George Benjamin Luks George Benjamin Luks (1867 – 1933) was an American realist artist and illustrator. His vigorously painted genre paintings of urban subjects are examples of the Ashcan School of American art. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art under Thomas Anshutz and traveled abroad studying from 1885-1895. Luks first met the group of artists known as "The Eight" while working as a newspaper artist in Philadelphia in the 1890s. Luks subject matter generally focused on the everyday immediacy and drama of the working class people. He was able to portray their energy and raw physicality. Luks was a born rebel and he took pride in being known as the "bad boy" of American art but he was also a paradox: a man of enormous egotism and a great generosity of spirit.< Less

Paperback: $11.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is the story of a woman born to money and privilege, who rejected the upper class values of her parents while still a child. The book’s title refers to the difficulty of changing... More > things… like piles of leaves, once kicked, return to their original state. Caperton’s life has been filled with both amazing and deplorable people, charming and not so charming animals, frightening and joyous events. She has always been active in progressive causes, once pulling an outrageous stunt to talk with Mario Cuomo about an environmental issue. She was active in the anti-war movement and lived close to New York when the twin towers went down. Caperton’s life has not been all kicking leaves. She has touched the lives of many people who will remain changed by her humor, generosity, and spirit. She has written prose, poetry, and memoir. As her mother lived until almost 106, we can anticipate much more writing from Caperton in the future.< Less
My China By David Lewis Paget

The thirty four poems contained in this volume are reflective of what I observed in China between September 2005 and December 2006. Twenty three of them were written in China during that period, the... More > others after returning to Australia, and on reflection. The latter poems are fictional narratives, designed to entertain the reader. I wanted to collect them together in one edition so they could be read as a whole, rather than being interspersed with other poems not about China. I had no intention of passing any sort of judgement while writing these, neither blame nor praise. I was merely an observer, a 'Yang Wei', (foreign devil) from the west, taking my first look at the east, and liking what I found. The Chinese culture captured my heart, despite the poverty I could see around me. Their generosity overwhelmed me, their work ethic, their ability to enjoy life despite their poor conditions, and their artistic culture in art, dance and music was inspiring. Dedicated to my students and friends in Zhong guo.< Less

Margaret Edwards has written poetry all her adult life. Her poems are clear and vivid, and, had she wished to publish them before now, she could have done so. But Margaret wrote solely for her own... More > amusement, and because she enjoyed sharing her thoughts in poetic form with her family and friends. Her topics vary from poem to poem, but all her writing draws its power from her abiding love of life.
