Guide du Routard Mad re 2017 18
Madère réunit, au milieu de l’océan, un climat à la douceur légendaire et une flore exubérante – bougainvillées, mimosas, amaryllis, oiseaux du paradis (symbole de l’île)... Et aussi des montagnes volcaniques déchirées par l’érosion et de vertigineux à-pic. À Funchal, capitale anglophile, on se rue dans les églises et les musées... Au delà des vagues s’ancre le reste de l’archipel : la petite Porto Santo, réputée pour sa longue plage de sable clair. La vie y est aussi douce que l’air !

Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc
Between Nice and Cannes lies one of the world's most beautiful palaces. Standing on more that twenty acres along the coast, the Eden-Roc is a legendary estate where time stands still behind the rustle of Alep Pines. This elegant home, with its Napolean III style, has been a refuge since 1869, first to artists and writers, then to the great European aristocracy before receiving celebrities, mostly in the springtime during the Cannes Film Festival. In a tribute to CÃ´te d Azur, FranÃ§ois Simon evokes the uniqueness of this discreet place, which for the first time opens its doors for a publication, offering an elegant look at never-before-seen photographs.

Matisse in the Studio
Published to accompany the Royal Academy exhibition 'Matisse in the Studio', this book is the first in English to explore the essential role that Henri Matisse's personal collection of objects played in his studio practice. Featured frequently in the modern master's bold paintings, drawings, and cut-outs, and influencing the development of his work in sculpture, Matisse's objects formed a secret history hiding in plain sight. Works that span the artist's entire career are presented here alongside the objects that inspired them, from Asian vases and African masks to intricate textiles from the Islamic world. With lush illustrations and archival images, Matisse in the Studio provides exceptional insights into the world of the artist at work.
