Camille Fauré: Impossible Objects
by Cork Marcheschi
A new, authoritative book on a never-before-covered subject: Atelier Fauré, the last Art Deco studio of note to receive the attention it deserves. This book is notable for the author’s refreshing writing which reveals his own passion for the subject with a narrative and personal style that involves the reader in the fascinating story of a studio parked on the sidelines for too long. It features beautiful, in-depth photographs of the bold and fearless enamel vases which were the most important output of the studio and includes facts and figures of great value to the history of 20th century art and to the collector, as well as details of enameling techniques which have been buried along with the masters who developed and practiced them.

FIFTY FOOT HOSE
Fifty Foot Hose is a psychedelic rock band that formed in San Francisco in the late 1960s, and reformed in the 1990s. They were one of the first bands to fuse rock and experimental music. Like a few other acts of the time (most notably the United States of America), they were consciously trying to fuse the contemporary sounds of rock with electronic instruments and avant-garde compositional ideas.
