Amos, Robert and Wong, Kileasa
Victoria's Chinatown is Canada's oldest Chinese neighbourhood and has a lineage unbroken since 1858. With large-format colour photos and photocollages, Robert Amos and Kileasa Wong take you behind the doors of the 29 private clubs that make up the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association. You'll see the gilded altars, antique art and ornate furniture that grace these meeting halls. Through stunning pictures and text in both Chinese and English, you will meet the club members and take an inside look at the culture of this complex community. "Inside Chinatown" is sure to become a landmark publication chronicling the vibrant heritage of Chinese Canadians. 151pp.

Anderson,Duane
Rain gods and their relatives developed out of an earlier tradition of larger hollow clay figurines, the earliest of which was collected at Tesuque Pueblo in 1879. They continue to be produced at Tesuque Pueblo to this day, constituting the longest continuous figurative art tradition in the Southwest. This book traces the evolution of the rain god from tourist art to Indian self-identity and self-expression. Importantly, it studies a popular form that has heretofore failed to earn the serious attention of scholars and collecting institutions and further the discourse on how art is defined and valued.144pp.Rear cover corner slightly creased.

Fuchs,Daniel and Geo
Text in English,French and German.Case is damaged,top rear slipcase dented,and slightly scuffed but otherwise very good.This book offers an unprecedented documentation of our era's most famous people, including artists, photographers, designers, creators of culture, musicians, actors and architects. Each of these people was present with his or her full energy and enthusiasm when Daniel and Geo Fuchs used a box-like Polaroid camera, which had originally been developed for eye doctors, to produce these creative highlights. The beginning of each session was devoted to the project of taking an extreme close-up of the celebrity's eye. The next step was to stage a second image, which usually integrated the first portrait of the person's eye. The resultant photographic artworks are every bit as diverse as are the personalities of the photographed individuals. These portraits accurately reflect the many facets of life: from gorgeous and aesthetic, through crazy and shrill, to desolate and thought-provoking. A representative collection of these fascinating photos is available now in this large-format photo book. Book and slipcase.Scuffed/dent in top of slipcase Text in English, German and French.

Yolanda, Nada
Travel back in time two thousand years. Imagine yourself in the Upper Room, sitting at the feet of the Master, the resurrected Christ, Jesus of Nazareth. Bask in the radiance of his materialised presence. Hear his illuminating words, given then to a few disciples. Receive his inner teaching, the true meaning of his resurrection into the light body, the spiritual or ascended form of his I Am Self. So it is now. This book reveals the sacred wisdom that Christ Jesus imparts to all who are ready to follow his pattern in re-evolving into cosmic consciousness. Inside are the keys you need to understand, and to prepare for, the demonstration of your own immortal, etheric, fourth dimensional, resurrected, light body. The time is ripe. In these Latter Days, light workers throughout the planet are undergoing a spiritual regeneration that will lead all mankind into the fourth dimension, a new heaven on a new Earth. We are preparing the force field for the redescent of our planetary way shower, Sananda, in his light body as Christ Jesus. Co-partners in the Second Coming, we are called to anchor our light bodies on Earth in order to lift mass consciousness for this prophesied event. As we ascend, Sananda descends. In the Upper Room of your consciousness, the resurrected Christ, your own I Am presence, awaits you. Seated at the feet of the Master - and at the feet of all ascended beings ready to instruct you - open your mind and heart to the adventure of a lifetime: anchoring your light body on Earth! The book presents the esoteric teachings and inter-dimensional communications of Nada-Yolanda, cofounder of Mark-Age. N.B. Crease to bottom corner of front cover. 344pp.
