This book is a richly illustrated guide showing the home garden as a composition of many different sectors creating a plant setting for a family house. We find a short historical sketch presenting the path of development and the changes which have taken place in the composition of small gardens, beginning with ancient times, and going right up to the present day. In the chapter devoted to the composition of the contemporary house garden, attention is drawn to certain differences we can observe as between town, suburban, and country gardens. None the less, they all consist of two basic areas of activity. The first is the area located in front of the building, representing the showcase zone of the garden. The remaining area behind the house fulfils a recreational role, though one embracing the different needs and requirements of the occupants.

Those who favour thematic arrangements will find out what to pay attention to when creating for instance gardens from conifers, stones, water features, or compositions in a Japanese style. The sound advice and observations, enriched with colour photographs and drawings, will be an inspiration and a model to imitate.

The closing part of the book contains a chapter devoted to the elements and principles of garden composition. Presented here is a good deal of important information from the theory of garden art. All this information is useful not only to those who are planning to lay out their first garden round the house, but also to those who have had such a garden for years.

The book describes little known archeological and historical treasures. Treasures hidden by the Swedes, royal crowns still not found, mysterious items deposited in the castles of the Borderlands of the First Republic, in dungeons outside towns and in fortress cellars, the treasures of mountain robbers hidden in inaccessible caves. The author, a well-known popularizer of archeology, also writes about the inevitable ghosts that accompany such treasures, about dramatic events that have taken place during searches, about cunning frauds, and the peregrinations of treasures that have already been found. Compulsory reading for anyone who dreamed in their youth of finding some treasure, and who in their adult life has no intenion of giving up such dreams...

This is a shooting handbook, aimed both at hunters and marksmen or sport shooters. It points out all the mistakes made by rifle users, as well as ways in which they can be eliminated. The book’s merits are enhanced by information concerning the training of snipers, the principles of camouflage, and the tactics used by marksmen. It also contains descriptions of the construction of many competitive and military guns.
The publication is aimed broadly at all enthusiasts fascinated by markmanship and sniper weapons, including their historical aspects. Hunters will also find something for themselves – after all, the line dividing big-game hunting from contemporary sniping is a very thin one...

The real Tunesia sometimes begins a few dozen metres from the tourist centres and the zones marked out for strangers, to which the ordinary citizen doesn’t always have access. It could be the most authentic of Arab cafes, situated a mere block away from the hotel, where a Coca-Cola poster from the 1930s has pride of place, and where the coffee is brewed in an ‘expresso’ from the beginning of the century and served with a glass of water. Or it could be an architecturally traditional quarter criss-crossed by uneven sandy streets, and surrounded by the walls of houses where it would be difficult to find any modern furniture, where mattresses are placed straight on the floor, and chandeliers are replaced by bare lightbulbs hanging from a wire. Houses carefully guarded from the eyes of foreigners, where only true friends are invited.
This richly illustrated book opens a new series of publications from Bellona – ‘My World’. The author, an outstanding artist and photographer (winner of the silver medal at an international exhibition in Montreal), shows a country visited by numerous tourists from a different angle. The Tunisian south, the Sahara, the Saharan Atlas, these are exceptional places, wrapped up in legend and clouds of mystery. This other Tunisia, and interesting facts about its past and present, are described in a commentary appended to more than 100 splendid photos.
