Stephen Hunter has chosen the backdrop of the chaotic and cruel Spanish Civil War to weave a classic tale of espionage and counterespionage. Julian Raines was one of the first Englishmen to volunteer for the international brigade in Spain. The British Secret Service suspect that the flamboyant Raines was recruited for the KGB by the Bolsheviks during his student days at Oxford and send Robert Florry, a struggling young writer to Spain after Raines with orders to eliminate him. Florry was an old school chum to Raines and had every reason to hate him. The British are not alone on Raines' trail. The ruthless Communist leader in Barcelona believes that the identity of the double agent conceals a powerful and profitable secret. It is a novel that constantly surprises.

The internationally acclaimed European tapestry collection in The Minneapolis Institute of Arts comprises forty-one pieces designed and woven between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries, representing all the major tapestry-weaving centers - Flanders, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, and Norway. European Tapestry in The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is the first complete documentation of this outstanding and unusually varied collection. Candace Adelson is a leading European-tapestry scholar and the author of numerous articles and exhibition catalogue texts. In this book she describes in detail how European tapestry was created and marketed, explains the techniques of tapestry weaving, and defines technical terms. Then she analyzes the Institute's pieces individually, exploring in depth each tapestry's subject, symbolism, history, and design and listing related works. The result is an invaluable record of a fragile legacy. Everyone interested in learning more about Western culture and the fascinating world of European tapestry will find this extensively researched, lucidly written, and abundantly illustrated catalogue enlightening.

"Determining a difference between the spatially-'outermost' and the spatially-'innermost', and evaluating uses to which these spaces may be put within the visual arts are learned processes. They resemble the cognitive mapping that children use when developing skills for understanding alphabets and scripts that need to be read top to bottom, right to left or left to right. Each case requires learning strategies in order to navigate the geography of the writing or drawing space of a planar surface." "Enduring skills of this kind came from the Mediterranean basin through the spread of Roman civilization and subsequent Christian education to Ireland and Britain, and to the continental cultures of the Germanic peoples after the fourth century. This volume considers the ways that these heirs of Mediterranean aesthetics invested their native cconcepts of space, design and relative value with new meanings as they applied them within their own unique programmes of visual art and book production."--BOOK JACKET.
