    Walter Isaacson

From his remarkable theory of relativity and the famous equation E=mc2 to his concept of a unified field theory, no one has contributed as much to science in the last century as Albert Einstein. Drawing on new research and reproducing documents only recently made available, Einstein reveals the process behind the work and the man behind the science: his early years and experiments in Germany, his marriages and children, his role in the development of the atomic bomb, and his involvement with civil rights groups in the United States.Now in a new format!

  • Vincent van Gogh: A Portrait of His Life and Work

    Cornelia Homburg

    Hardcover (Andre Deutsch, Aug. 6, 2019)
    This beautifully illustrated, meticulously researched book is a must-have for admirers of Van Gogh's work. Vincent Van Gogh is famous as much for his tortured life as for his remarkable paintings. This large, beautiful book offers unique insight into the solitary genius—from his difficult childhood to his inspiring artistic struggles to his mental decline and tragic suicide. It follows the path from his early attempts to forge a career, to the inspiration he found in the Paris of the late 1880s, to the sunlight of Provence with its fierce blues and yellows, and his final days in the village of Auvers-sur-Oise. Gloriously illustrated with such classics as the radiant versions of his favorite sunflowers, “Starry Night,” “La Berceuse,” and his many self-portraits, and including such documents such as his private letters, Vincent van Gogh brings the artist’s world to life as never before.Reissue of The Treasures of Vincent van Gogh in a new format
