Renaissance Art: A Very Short Introduction
Artists like Botticelli, Holbein, Leonardo, Durer, and Michelangelo and works such as the Last Supper fresco and the monumental marble statue of David, are familiar symbols of the Renaissance. But who were these artists, why did they produce such memorable images, and how would their original beholders have viewed these objects? Was the Renaissance only about great masters and masterpieces, or were women artists and patrons also involved? And what about the "minor" pieces that Renaissance men and women would have encountered in homes, churches and civic spaces? This Very Short Introduction answers such questions by considering both famous and lesser-known artists, patrons, and works of art within the cultural and historical context of Renaissance Europe. The volume provides a broad cultural and historical context for some of the Renaissance's most famous artists and works of art. It also explores forgotten aspects of Renaissance art, such as objects made for the home and women as artists and patrons. Considering Renaissance art produced in both Northern and Southern Europe, rather than focusing on just one region, the book introduces readers to a variety of approaches to the study of Renaissance art, from social history to formal analysis.

Bridges: The science and art of the world’s most inspiring structures

Bridges: The science and art of the world's most inspiring structures by David Blockley
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0199543593 | 329 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
The Brooklyn Bridge, London's Tower Bridge, Sydney's Harbour Bridge, San Francisco's Golden Gate–bridges can be breathtakingly monumental structures, magnificent works of art, and vital arteries that make life vastly easier.

Bridges: The science and art of the world’s most inspiring structures
In Bridges , eminent structural engineer David Blockley takes readers on a fascinating guided tour of bridge construction, ranging from the primitive rope bridges (now mainly found in adventure movies), to Roman aqueducts and the timber trestle railway bridges of the American West, to today's modern marvels, such as the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, which has the largest span in the world. Blockley outlines the forces at work on a bridge–tension, compression, and shear–and the basic structural elements that combat these forces–beams, arches, trusses, and suspensions (or BATS). As he does so, he explores some of the great bridges around the world, including such lesser-known masterpieces as the Forth Railway Bridge (featured in Alfred Hitchcock's The Thirty-Nine Steps ), and describes some spectacular failures, such as the recent bridge collapse in Minnesota or the famous failure of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in 1940. For instance, Blockley discusses the London's Millennium Bridge–the blade of light across the Thames–which displayed an alarming wobble when opened. He explains that when people walk, they not only exert force directly forward, but also exert a lesser force to the side, and the Millennium Bridge engineers did not consider this tiny lateral movement in their otherwise meticulous design. Amazingly enough, this minor omission caused a wobble severe enough to close the bridge for two years. Bridge building is a magnificent example of the practical use of science. But as Blockley shows in this illuminating book, engineers must go beyond science, blending technical experience and creativity to build the spans that connect us all.

Sea Legs: Tales Of A Woman Oceanographer By Kathleen Crane
Publisher: Ba..sic Bo..oks 2003 | 320 Pages | ISBN: 0813340047 | PDF | 13 MB

Sea Legs: Tales Of A Woman Oceanographer
Crane chronicles the relentless adversity she faced in becoming a world-class oceanographer with a modest matter-of-factness that almost camouflages the high caliber of her achievements. During the 1970s, when Crane was struggling to accomplish her demanding and pioneering fieldwork on underwater volcanic activity–she was the first to postulate the existence of the now famous deep-sea hot springs–female scientists either weren't allowed on expeditions at all or only in pairs, and they were not only forbidden below deck but also lectured patronizingly on their apparel and behavior.

Angus Croll, "If Hemingway Wrote javascript"
2014 | ISBN: 1593275854 | 192 pages | EPUB | 12 MB

If Hemingway Wrote JavaScript
What if William Shakespeare were asked to generate the Fibonacci series or Jane Austen had to write a factorial program? In , author Angus Croll imagines short javascript programs as written by famous wordsmiths. The result is a peculiar and charming combination of prose, poetry, and programming.

The best authors are those who obsess about language—and the same goes for javascript developers. To master either craft, you must experiment with language to develop your own style, your own idioms, and your own expressions. To that end, playfully bridges the worlds of programming and literature for the literary geek in all of us.
