Rozik, Eli
This book is a comprehensive introduction to the analysis of fictional worlds in a set of fifteen arts, including theatre, opera, figurative ballet, mime, audio drama, figurative drawing/painting, figurative sculpture, strip cartoon, animation, puppet theatre, still photography, photo-novel, silent movie, cinema and TV drama. Due to their extreme differences, the combination of different arts in the description of a single fictional world, and the translation from one medium to another, are considered problematic. While such differences do not concern fictional creativity, which applies the same poetic and rhetoric rules whatever the medium, it is widely accepted that the problem lies in the extreme differences between the mediums of description. In contrast, this study explores their common grounds. These arts are iconic in nature, and if 'iconicity' is re-defined in terms of imprinting images on matter and mediation of language, and as reflecting the common roots of these mediums in a preverbal mode of imagistic thinking, therein is an explanation of their possible combination and translation from one medium to another without impairing the receivers' reading, interpreting and experiencing capacities. Eli Rozik analyses numerous fictional worlds in all these arts, produced during the last 2,500 years of artistic creativity, especially in theatre, art and cinema. This book presupposes that principles underlying the generation of descriptions of fictional worlds by the theatre medium, as proposed in two earlier works (Generating Theatre Meaning and Fictional Thinking), also apply to all the iconic/fictional arts. The text-book format of the volume has been purposefully designed to address the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students, suiting the structure of university courses and providing all necessary information to access the images/artistic works discussed in the volume via the web and Google. This inter-art journey from theatre theory to the arts is compelling reading for all those involved and engaged in artistic creativity. 299pp.

The pictorial world of Rini Dhumal is an amalgam of myth and realism, where nostalgia and sombre tones meet to create powerful protagonists that exude raw primal energy. We see representations of memory and recollection, distilled by her imagination which emerges from deep convictions and courage. Incarnations of the quintessential Indian Woman, quiet, with aloof confidence and devoid of any fragility, dominate the earthy landscapes. Stories of displacement, chance encounters and tales of far-away lands, integrating with symbolism and perception, are all part of her oeuvre. One comes upon, at once, the universality and intimate familiarity in the fluid forms. Trained as a painter, Rini Dhumal has experimented with every conceivable medium ranging from print-making, graphics and ceramics, with fantastic results, and created a cultural vocabulary uniquely her own. Her sketchbooks, with jottings of her initial responses before they take shape as paintings or other artworks, reveal the coming together of her hand and spirit. Drawing upon a storehouse of historical details, the splendours of her childhood, and anecdotal references from various travels, she creates a vivid aesthetic in her art-making. 248pp. N.B. Corners very slightly bumped.

Stein, Joel B.
This is the ultimate guide to getting the most out of your visit to the City Different. With the aid of this book and the internet, you can plan your trip using over 1,000 links to sites belonging to hotels, restaurants, historical sites, museums, retail stores, galleries, spas, pueblos and special places just outside the city. This book was designed for the traveller who stays for a few days, a week or perhaps a little longer. It highlights everything to see in this centuries-old city and takes you to the places you are most likely to enjoy, the places that provide the most immediate contact with the rich history of one of the oldest cities in America, where three cultures interact separately and together to create a rich and unique cultural mosaic. The guide covers key travel information, a downtown walking tour, and diversions: from the famed Santa Fe Opera, to the unique Tesuque Pueblo Flea Market, to the legendary artist colony on Canyon Road. Also included are historical buildings and art galleries, museums, restaurants with a past, lodgings of historical value, shopping and spas, the countryside from Abiquiu to Taos, outdoor activities from hiking to skiing, the Pueblos, their feast days and casinos, places of worship, secret spots for taking those special pictures, and major yearly events and celebrations. World-renowned photographer Marcia Keegan lavishly illustrates every section with corresponding photographs. Internet links guide you to the actual web sites of the places covered, where you can learn a great deal before you even get to Santa Fe! If you will be pressed for time, you can also use the sites to help you decide before arrival which actual places you are most interested in spending your valuable time and money.220pp.
