Magdalena: River of Dreams: A Story of Colombia
Wade Davis
$30.00

Travelers often become enchanted with the first country that captures their hearts and gives them license to be free. For Wade Davis, it was Colombia. Now in a masterly new book, Davis tells of his travels on the mighty Magdalena, the river that made possible the nation. Along the way, he finds a people who have overcome years of conflict precisely because of their character, informed by an enduring spirit of place, and a deep love of a land that is home to the greatest ecological and geographical diversity on the planet. As Gabriel García Márquez once wrote during his own pilgrimage on the river: “The only reason I would like to be young again would be the chance to travel again on a freighter going up the Magdalena.” Only in Colombia can a traveler wash ashore in a coastal desert, follow waterways through wetlands as wide as the sky, ascend narrow tracks through dense tropical forests, and reach verdant Andean valleys rising to soaring ice-clad summits. This rugged and impossible geography finds its perfect coefficient in the topography of the Colombian spirit: restive, potent, at times placid and calm, in moments explosive and wild.

Both a corridor of commerce and a fountain of culture, the wellspring of Colombian music, literature, poetry, and prayer, the Magdalena has served in dark times as the graveyard of the nation. And yet, always, it returns as a river of life.

At once an absorbing adventure and an inspiring tale of hope and redemption, Magdalena gives us a rare, kaleidoscopic picture of a nation on the verge of a new period of peace. Braiding together memoir, history, and journalism, Wade Davis tells the story of the country’s most magnificent river, and in doing so, tells the epic story of Colombia.

Airline Visual Identity 1945-1975
M.C. Huhne
$400.00

Arguably no other book has been produced with such technical sophistication in recent years and few design books have received such an overwhelming worldwide media resonance. Airline Visual Identity 1945-1975 rounds up the most imaginative, influential and surprising designs of the airlines’ commercial art from the “golden age of flying.” It provides an unprecedented, systematic outline of the development of the visual identities of thirteen pioneering airlines, combining innovative research and stunning, museum-like presentations of hundreds of spectacular aviation posters, photos and other illustrations.

Conceived by some of the world’s top creative minds, such as Ivan Chermayeff, Otl Aicher, Massimo Vignelli, Academy Award winner Saul Bass, or advertising titan Mary Wells Lawrence, the designs found in the book’s case studies also illustrate the shift from traditional methods of corporate design and advertising to comprehensive modern branding programs which took place in the same period.

To reproduce all of the images as precisely as possible, a total of seventeen different colors, five different varnishes, and two different methods of foil printing and embossing were used. The result is a book of exceptional vivacity that pushes the limits of modern art printing technology. The Premium Edition has received glowing reviews in leading media around the world, including The New York Times, Newsweek, CNN, New Republic, Slate, Adweek, and dozens of others in the United States, France, Britain, Germany, China, Japan, Switzerland, Austria, Australia, Spain, Italy, Norway, and many other countries.

Created by internationally recognized art book publisher Callisto and designed by distinguished Berlin-based designer Yvonne Quirmbach, the volume was produced in a renowned printing facility in northern Italy on deluxe 200g Fedrigoni paper.

The Premium Edition is also available as a Collector’s Edition, limited to 999 copies and presented in a grand clamshell case designed by Yvonne Quirmbach, with a metal cover similar in appearance to the aluminum alloy used to manufacture jet aircraft in the 1960s.
