Neuschwanstein by Gottfried Knapp
Book DescriptionText in English and German. One and a half million visitors per year can't be wrong. For them the royal castle at Neuschwanstein is the pinnacle of every dreamer's architectural fairy-tale. But for the architecturally educated, for adepts of Modernism, this stylistically crude, anachronistic monument to a prince's whim is simply annoying. Admittedly, putting aside all positive or negative prejudice, it is impossible not to count this romantic recreation of a medieval castle on its breath-taking scenic site as one of the most spectacular pioneering buildings of European Historicism.

Max Mannheimer: The Marriage of Colours, Hardback (October 2016)
Max Mannheimer (1920) survived the Holocaust as a Jew in a concentration camp. His moving life history has been published in several books in different languages. However, few people are aware of his paintings, which were created under his Hebrew name "ben jakov". This volume assembles a selection of 70 of his works.
Paper Dancers : Maria Beykirch, Hardback (July 2016)
Pictures of poetic power and joie-de-vivre and characters, syllables of words and digits hidden in layers of painting: Maria Beykirch fires the imagination more vividly than most other artists with her drawings and paintings and conjures up in the eyes and minds of viewers an infinite succession of imaginary worlds. This title deals with her work.
