With the advent of new, inexpensive photographic technology emerging in the United States during the mid-19th century, communication by postcard became a very popular way to exchange travel stories, news, and gossip over the decades. Drawing on a private collection of vintage postcards, this new book features a history of Hollywood, spanning half a century. Exploring Hollywood before and after it became the entertainment capital of the world, these images offer readers a glimpse of some of the city's most interesting places during its Golden Years. Long before motion pictures arrived, when the area was a residential neighborhood of beautiful homes and lemon groves, Hollywood was just another suburb of Los Angeles striving to become a community. From the familiar sights of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and the ChinesTheater, to the horse-and-buggy driven dirt roads and pineapple fields at the turn of the century, Hollywood in Vintage Postcards will guide the curious through the city's progress in the first half of the 20th century.

Just after the turn of the 20th century, the motion picture industry moved to the West Coast, and the largest land of make-believe was created in Hollywood, California. From the silent-era beginnings of primitive, open-air stages to the fabled back lots of the studios' heyday, Hollywood Studios presents a bygone era of magical moviemaking in rare postcards. Assembled from the author's private collection, these images from the Chaplin Studios to Metro-Goldwyn Mayer depict an insider's look back at the dream factories known as the Hollywood studios.

Magnum photographer Martin Parr is a key figure in the worlds of photography and contemporary art. He has been an avid postcard collector for twenty years and in Langweilige Postkarten he presents the pride of his 'boring' collection: 160 postcards from Germany that take you on a daringly dull tour of its autobahns, airports, hotels, factories, shops, border posts, tower blocks and new towns.Presented without commentary or introduction of any kind, and with the original captions, the postcards are allowed to speak for themselves. They were all made before German reunification and provide fascinating and hilarious insights into German social and architectural values between the 1950s and 1980s. The two nations' special relationship with concrete and the functional modernist block is nostalgically and repetitiously celebrated in postcard after postcard, and the volume provides a revealing context for consideration of the work of contemporary German art and landscape photographers.

The "Yellow Peril" is a wide spread term and widely used stereotype. How did it emerge and how did it develope? During the first part of the 20th century postcards became the most important pictorial mass medium. A fair number of postcards deal with Japan regarded by the West as an exotic country with dainty people. But since Japan declared war on all major Western powers between 1900 and 1945 the postcards changed. The Japanese are portrayed as dainty, funny soldiers by nations not involved in the wars, as heroic fighters by their allies or as ruthless, barbaric "Yellows" by their enemies. The "Yellow Peril", a new term, had been created - presently used again in the context of China's role as an emerging world power. Book jacket.

Das Landstädtchen Stockton ist der durchschnittlichste aller Orte auf dieser Welt: niemand Berühmtes wurde hier geboren, nichts erfunden, keine berühmten Schlachten sind hier geschlagen worden. Genau das, was die Kugels gesucht haben. Einen Neuanfang. Nochmal von vorne beginnen. Doch schon kurz nach dem Umzug geht einiges schief: Kugels sture Mutter zieht ein und treibt alle in den Wahnsinn. Dann zündet ein Unbekannter in der Nachbarschaft Farmhäuser an, genau so eines wie das, das Kugel gerade gekauft hat. Und dann, eines Nachts, hört Kugel das komische Tappen vom Dachboden. Schlaflos, angsterfüllt steigt er hinauf. Und dieses kleine Überbleibsel der Vergangenheit, das er dort entdeckt, die se fiese sarkastische Spitze der Geschichte, macht alles nur noch viel, viel schlimmer. Hoffnung: eine Tragödie ist bitterböse und unendlich komisch, ein galoppierendes Gespenst der Geschichte, eine Abhandlung über die conditio humana und eine Komödie zugleich.
