Herschel, Wayne; Lederer, Birgitt
Wayne Herschel, in a culmination of 15 years of research on archaeo-astronomy, has unravelled an extraordinary secret. His journey begins in Egypt discovering that in all probability, all 50 of the pyramids of Lower Egypt represent a grand star map of the brightest stars forming a 360 degree circuit of constellations along the edge of the Milky Way. Even more importantly, the star map denotes the proverbial X that marks the spot. He also identifies the origins of a human blueprint code within the star map. In its context it claims cryptically that our human lineage is associated with what appears to be another nearby Sun-like star system. The human blueprint emerges at other ancient sites. The same star pattern found in Egypt is also found at Stonehenge, Tikal, and Angkor Wat when their nearby monuments are included. The earliest human cave paintings at Lascaux, the Sumerians and the Incas, as do many other ancient civilisations around the world, all appear to emulate the very same star secret with great obsession. In every instance it is their ultimate monument or an inscription that reveres the importance of one nearby Sun-like star. This star is in Taurus, the bull of the heavens, and the ancients passionately worshiped it as the place of their gods. Just when you think you have seen it all, the so-called pyramid ruins on the planet Mars reveal the unthinkable. This full-colour glossy book takes the reader on a riveting journey from one clue to the next, proving its theories at the hands of a whole array of forgotten ancient texts and artefacts. 292pp. N.B. Slight crease to foredge of front cover.

De Bruyn, Gerd
This work contains text in English and German. In the summer 1978, the cover of the magazine "Bauwelt" showed a photograph of an unusual building. It was tersely introduced to readers as a 'private house with office in Bad Nauheim', but it was immediately obvious that this was a built manifesto. What appeared was a strictly symmetrically articulated, steeply rising facade, emanating dignity and composure. It also seemed able to manage without windows, which further enhanced its austere elegance. And then there were the strikingly slender, sharp-angled wall elements, which seemed captivatingly graceful, or even delicate and fragile - as though folded from paper. The fact is that, long before Gilles Deleuze had cast his spell on a new generation of aesthetically ambitious architects, Johannes Peter Holzinger was putting his folding skills into practice as a matter of course.60pp.
