Agnes Martin's career spanned over seven decades. Though a major influence on Minimalist painters, Martin saw her own work, more closely related to Abstract Expressionism, her paintings being 'meditations on innocence, beauty, happiness and love.' More than 130 of these works can be found in this book. Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances is the first and only complete career retrospective publication of the visionary painter. This important and beautiful book brings together 130 of Martin's paintings and drawings, with her previously unpublished writings and lecture notes, which vividly illuminate her art. Letters and facsimiles are reprinted in Martin's own hand, and cut to notebook size, adding an element of intimacy for the reader. With the Pace Gallery founder, Arne Glimcher's illuminating introduction, his personal remembrances of visits to Martin at her studio, and their correspondence throughout her career, reveal much about the artist's life and work.

Commonly known as "football" outside North America, soccer is the world's most popular sport. The word soccer is derived from "association football," the traditional name for the game in the British Commonwealth countries. Although ball-kicking games can be traced at least as far back as ancient Greece and China, modern soccer originated in 19th-century England. The Football Association laid down the first set of rules in 1863, and the first organized league was established in 1888. Soccer became a medal sport in the Olympic Games of 1908. In 1930, FIFA organized the World Cup, a tournament held every four years to determine international soccer supremacy. Soccer is played according to the same basic rules almost everywhere. This book acts as an illustrated guide to the rules, regulations, and history of this exciting sport.

Winner of the NESTOR LUJÁN HISTORICAL NOVEL PRIZE."I was nervous about this book. Finding a good novel in translation from the tiny state of Andorra, nestling in the Pyrenees between Spain and France, was always going to be tricky... I was in for a pleasant surprise... Salvadó has certainly done his homework: the book is painstakingly researched... By and large, the level of detail and historical knowledge is well-handled... The text itself felt professional and slick... this is a highly readable light novel... powerful flashes of insight into human greed, pride and ambition..." (ANN MORGAN, Andorra: Buried treasure, A Year of Reading the Word, http://ayearofreadingtheworld.com/2012/02/22/andorra-buried-treasure/, London, february 22, 2012)This is the history of the time of Pharaoh Snefru and Queen Hetepheres, the parents of Cheops, who built the largest and most impressive pyramid of all. It is also the story of Sedum, a slave who became Cheops' teacher, the high priest Ramosi, and how the first pyramid came to be built.Sebekhotep, the great wise man of that time, said, "Everything is written in the stars. Most of us live our lives unaware of it. Some can read the stars and see their destiny. But very few people learn to write in the stars and change their destiny."Ramosi and Sedum learned to write in them and tried to change their destinies, but fortune treated them very differently. This is a tale of the confrontation between two men's intelligence: one fighting for power, the other struggling for freedom. Other critics' opinions:“It is a long time since a prize was so justly awarded. THE TEACHER OF CHEOPS deserves every honour... An intrigue that develops at a good pace without causing anxiety... A restrained and inspired piece of writing; an outstanding, intelligent and well-constructed novel.” (RAMÓN VENTURA, El Periódico)“Salvadó develops the mystery with great skill in his novel.” (JACINTO ANTÓN, El País)“Salvadó presents a story about power and knowledge through a fast-paced plot combining intrigue, love, mystery, murder and adventure.” (ROSA Mª PIÑOL, La Vanguardia)“Albert Salvadó displays seasoned writing skill in this novel... A very well-organised plot... A straightforward, effective style that is a pleasure to read... He achieves accuracy in his writing.” (IGNASI ARAGAY, Avui)
