Just my type : a book about fonts by Simon Garfield( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Fonts surround us every day, on street signs and buildings, on movie posters and books, and on just about every product that we buy. But where do fonts come from and why do we need so many? Who is behind the businesslike subtlety of Times New Roman, the cool detachment of Arial, or the maddening lightness of Comic Sans (and the movement to ban it)? Simon Garfield embarks on a mission to answer these questions and more, and reveal what may be the very best and worst fonts in the world. Type faces are now 560 years old, but we barely knew their names until about twenty years ago, when the pull-down font menus on our first computers made us all the gods of type. Beginning in the early days of Gutenberg and ending with the most adventurous digital fonts, Garfield unravels our age old obsession with the way our words look. This book investigates a range of modern mysteries, including how Helvetica took over the world, what inspires the seemingly ubiquitous use of Trajan on bad movie posters, and what makes a font look presidential, male or female, American, British, German, or Jewish. From the typeface of Beatlemania to the graphic vision of the Obama campaign, fonts can signal a musical revolution or the rise of an American president. This book is a must-read for the design conscious that will forever change the way you look at the printed word. -- Book Jacket

Il calice della vita : romanzo by Glenn Cooper( Book )
2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"Inghilterra, XV secolo. Non è la prigione a gettare Thomas Malory nel più nero sconforto. È la consapevolezza di avere fallito, proprio come tutti coloro che lo hanno preceduto. Ormai ha una sola ragione di vita: proteggere la chiave che dà accesso a un segreto antichissimo. E ha un solo modo per farlo: scrivere un'opera sulle gesta di re Artù e dei cavalieri della Tavola Rotonda... Inghilterra, oggi. Arthur Malory è sconvolto. Prima ha visto il suo migliore amico, Andrew, morire per mano di un assassino, poi è sfuggito per miracolo all'incendio che ha distrutto la sua casa. E tutto ha avuto inizio con una telefonata, quella in cui Andrew gli annunciava di avere novità sensazionali riguardo alla loro grande passione comune: il Graal. Da quel momento, Arthur è diventato il bersaglio di uomini senza scrupoli, determinati a completare una missione iniziata in Palestina, la notte in cui Gesù ha bevuto dal sacro calice, durante l'Ultima Cena. La sua unica possibilità di salvezza è trovare il Graal prima di loro. E, per riuscirci, dovrà rintracciare a seguire una catena d'indizi lasciata dal suo illustre antenato, Thomas Malory. Ma la sfida più grande che attende Arthur è la natura stessa del potere del Graal. Un potere che risale all'origine dell'universo, un potere che va oltre la Chiesa, oltre la morte di Cristo, oltre la vita..."--

The color of water : a Black man's tribute to his white mother by James McBride( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Who is Ruth McBride Jordan? A self-declared "light-skinned" woman evasive about her ethnicity, yet steadfast in her love for her twelve black children. James McBride, journalist, musician, and son, explores his mother's past, as well as his own upbringing and heritage, in a poignant and powerful debut, The Color Of Water: A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother. The son of a black minister and a woman who would not admit she was white, James McBride grew up in "orchestrated chaos" with his eleven siblings in the poor, all-black projects of Red Hook, Brooklyn. "Mommy," a fiercely protective woman with "dark eyes full of pep and fire," herded her brood to Manhattan's free cultural events, sent them off on buses to the best (and mainly Jewish) schools, demanded good grades, and commanded respect. As a young man, McBride saw his mother as a source of embarrassment, worry, and confusion?and reached thirty before he began to discover the truth about her early life and long-buried pain. In The Color of Water, McBride retraces his mother's footsteps and, through her searing and spirited voice, recreates her remarkable story. The daughter of a failed itinerant Orthodox rabbi, she was born Rachel Shilsky (actually Ruchel Dwara Zylska) in Poland on April 1, 1921. Fleeing pogroms, her family emigrated to America and ultimately settled in Suffolk, Virginia, a small town where anti-Semitism and racial tensions ran high. With candor and immediacy, Ruth describes her parents' loveless marriage; her fragile, handicapped mother; her cruel, sexually-abusive father; and the rest of the family and life she abandoned. At seventeen, after fleeing Virginia and settling in New York City, Ruth married a black minister and founded the all- black New Brown Memorial Baptist Church in her Red Hook living room. "God is the color of water," Ruth McBride taught her children, firmly convinced that life's blessings and life's values transcend race. Twice widowed, and continually confronting overwhelming adversity and racism, Ruth's determination, drive and discipline saw her dozen children through college?and most through graduate school. At age 65, she herself received a degree in social work from Temple University. Interspersed throughout his mother's compelling narrative, McBride shares candid recollections of his own experiences as a mixed-race child of poverty, his flirtations with drugs and violence, and his eventual self- realization and professional success. The Color of Water touches readers of all colors as a vivid portrait of growing up, a haunting meditation on race and identity, and a lyrical valentine to a mother from her son
