Nominated for both the Eisner and Harvey Awards for Best Foreign Language Publication! With this book Pratt leaves behind the short story form he'd used for twenty-one interrelated tales and presents a truly epic graphic novel. In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution and the First World War, Corto Maltese is engaged by the Red Lanterns-a Chinese secret society made up entirely of women-to find an armored train laden with gold that belonged to the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II. They aren't the only ones lusting after the treasure. The adventure, which shifts from the hidden courts of Venice to the mysterious alleys of Hong Kong, from Shanghai to Manchuria and Mongolia to Siberia, also attracts regular and irregular armies, as well as revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries. The sweeping plot allows Pratt to fully investigate the complicated and competing motivations of his cast that includes the return of Rasputin and the introduction of the cold and dangerous Duchess Marina Seminova, the enigmatic warrior/spy named Shanghai-Lil, and historical figures such as the "Mad Baron" Roman Ungern-Sternberg, a Russian general who who sees himself as the modern-day Genghis Khan!

Pénélope, la désormais fameuse conservatrice de Versailles, qui a déjà révélé les inquiétants mystères de la tapisserie de Bayeux (Intrigue à l'anglaise) et du château de Versailles (Intrigue à Versailles), passe une semaine à Venise pour un savant colloque. Un illustre écrivain français, qui ne publie que sur cette ville, meurt tragiquement. Bientôt, ce sont tous les "écrivains français de Venise", club d'habitude paisible, qui sont menacés. Pénélope se retrouve au cœur d'une énigme dont l'origine remonterait au fameux Bal du Siècle, donné par Carlos de Beistegui dans son palais de la Sérénissime en 1951. Aidée par son fiancé le journaliste Wandrille, elle se lance sur la piste d'un tableau de Rembrandt que personne n'a jamais vu et qui dormirait quelque part sur une des îles de la lagune. Les plus grands hommes de lettres français commencent à craindre pour leur vie...

The Walking Man is a reprint of Jiro Taniguchi's most cherished title. It is a book in which nothing happens but everything occurs. The Walking Man follows a modern day Japanese business man as he strolls at random through urban Japan - often silent, usually alone - with his vivid dreams that let time stand still. Join him as he climbs a tree in bare feet, takes time out to observe the birds, plays in the puddles after the rain and returns a shell to the sea. It is an ideal way for readers and graphic novel-lovers to relax.

Venise n’a pas toujours été une ville morte, une ville musée saturée de touristes telle que nous la connaissons aujourd’hui. Durant cinq siècles, la Sérénissime fut une cité grouillante, commerçante, souvent belliqueuse, à la tête d’un empire qui domina une grande partie du monde occidental et oriental, avant de céder la place à la Grande-Bretagne.Comment un républicain aussi convaincu que Jean-Claude Barreau peut-il choisir l'oligarchie vénitienne comme modèle pour notre société ? Parce qu’elle inventa un capitalisme intelligent, respectueux de son peuple, fondé sur le sens de l’État de ses élites. Parce qu'avoir de l'argent impliquait plus de devoirs que de droits. Bien avant les protestants de Max Weber et leur célèbre éthique, les Vénitiens inventèrent le capitalisme moderne (la Bourse, les banques, la lettre de change, la comptabilité double), mais aussi l’écologie au quotidien, une certaine forme de laïcité, le non cumul des mandats et la justice égale pour tous. Parce que les riches qui dirigeaient ce monde avaient à cœur de le préserver, de le faire fructifier et non de le consommer. Comment construire un capitalisme à visage humain ? En ces temps de crise, la question est d'une grande urgence. Venise nous donne une partie de la réponse et Jean-Claude Barreau une magistrale leçon d'économie politique.

An extraordinarily beautiful city that has been celebrated, criticized, and studied in many films, San Francisco is both fragile and robust, at once a site of devastation caused by 1906 earthquake but also a symbol of indomitability in its effort to rebuild afterwards. Its beauty, both natural and manmade, has provided filmmakers with an iconic backdrop since the 1890s, and this guidebook offers an exciting tour through the film scenes and film locations that have made San Francisco irresistible to audiences and auteurs alike. Gathering more than forty short pieces on specific scenes from San Franciscan films, this book includes essays on topics that dominate the history of filmmaking in the city, from depictions of the Golden Gate Bridge, to the movies Alfred Hitchcock, to the car chases that seem to be mandatory features of any thriller shot there. Some of America's most famous movies--from Steven Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark to Hitchcock's Vertigo to Don Siegel's Dirty Harry --are celebrated alongside smaller movies and documentaries, such as The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, to paint a complete picture of San Francisco in film. A range of expert contributors, including several members of the San Francisco Film Critics Circle, discuss a range of films from many genres and decades, from nineteenth-century silents to twentieth-century blockbusters Audiences across the world, as well as many of the world's greatest film directors--including Buster Keaton, Orson Welles, George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, David Fincher, and Steven Soderbergh--have been seduced by San Francisco. This book is the ideal escape to the city by the bay for arm chair travelers and cinephiles alike.

The second volume in the definitive English language edition of Hugo Pratt's masterpiece, Corto Maltese, presented in the original oversized B&W format and with new translations made from Pratt's original Italian scripts. "Mushroom Heads" begins in Maracaibo, Venezuela, where Corto Maltese and Professor Steiner lead an expedition on the trail of the legendary El Dorado, financed by the antiquarian Levi Colombia. In "Banana Conga," Corto has his first and nearly fatal encounter with the beautiful yet dangerous mercenary Venexiana Stevenson. Within this framework of adventure, Hugo Pratt weaves themes dealing with the exploitation of indigenous people, the noble struggle to gain freedom and independence, and how cowardice can poison men of all classes. The action, set in 1917, takes Corto Maltese from the Mosquito Coast to Barbados to a deadly struggle among Jivaro head-hunters in the Peruvian Amazon.

Simons Everson Manigault ('You say it "Simmons". I'm a rare one-m Simons') lives with his mother, an eccentric professor known as the Duchess, on an isolated strip of South Carolina coast. Convinced that her son can be a writer of genius, the Duchess has immersed Simons in the literary classics since birth and has given him free rein to gather materials in such spots as the Baby Grand, a local black nightclub. Although possessed of a vocabulary and sophistication beyond his years, Simons feels the normal adolescent bewilderment about the behaviour of his parents. His conventional father, the Progenitor, has recently left the family in a dispute over Simons' upbringing and has moved to nearby Hilton Head, where he would like to see his son raised in the orthodox surroundings of condominiums, country clubs and private schools. So the Duchess brings in Taurus, an enigmatic father-surrogate who tutors the boy in the art of watching the world without presumption.
