´´Lass deiner Fantasie freien Lauf´´, rät die Autorin in ihrem Vorwort und gibt allen begeisterten Modeillustratoren 500 Templates an die Hand, die darauf warten, vervollständigt zu werden. Zuvor vermittelt sie noch alles Wesentliche, um eigene Ideen mit flottem Strich aufs Papier zu bringen - von der Einrichtung des Arbeitsplatzes über das figürliche Zeichnen, dem Illustrieren einzelner Körperteile und verschiedener Kleidungsstücke bis hin zum Skizzieren unterschiedlicher Posen. Die Figuren sind in verschiedenen Körperhaltungen mit spezieller Farbe vorgedruckt, die bei anschließendem Kopieren verschwindet - zu sehen ist schließlich nur noch der eigene Modeentwurf.
The only figure in the Dictionary of National Biography who is said never to have existed, Robin Hood has taken on an air of reality few historical figures achieve. His image in various guises has been put to use as a subject of ballads, nationalist rallying point, Disney cartoon fox, green-clad figure of farce, tabloid fodder, and template for petty criminals and progressive political candidates alike. In this engaging and deeply informed audiobook, Stephen Knight looks at the different manifestations of Robin Hood at different times and places in a mythic biography with a thematic structure. The best way to get at the essence of the Robin Hood myth, Knight believes, is in terms not of chronological and generic progression but of the purposes served by heroes. Each of the audiobook´s four central chapters identifies a particular model of the hero, mythic or biographic, that dominated in certain periods and in certain genres and explores their interrelations, their implications, and their historical and sociopolitical contexts. 1.

An enthralling historical narrative filled with critical leadership insights that will be of interest to a wide range of listeners - including those in government, business, education, and the arts - Forged in Crisis, by celebrated Harvard Business School historian Nancy Koehn, spotlights five masters of crisis: polar explorer Ernest Shackleton, President Abraham Lincoln, legendary abolitionist Frederick Douglass, Nazi-resisting clergyman Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and environmental crusader Rachel Carson. What do such disparate figures have in common? Why do their extraordinary stories continue to amaze and inspire? In delivering the answers to those questions, Nancy Koehn offers a remarkable template by which to judge those in our own time to whom the public has given its trust. She begins each of the book´s five sections by showing her protagonist on the precipice of a great crisis: Shackleton marooned on an Antarctic ice floe; Lincoln on the verge of seeing the Union collapse; escaped slave Douglass facing possible capture; Bonhoeffer agonizing over how to counter absolute evil with faith; Carson racing against the cancer ravaging her in a bid to save the planet. The narrative then reaches back to each person´s childhood and shows the individual growing - step by step - into the person he or she will ultimately become. Significantly, as we follow each leader´s against-all-odds journey, we begin to glean an essential truth: Leaders are not born but made. In a book dense with epiphanies, the most galvanizing one may be that the power to lead courageously resides in each of us. Whether it´s listened to as a repository of great insight or as exceptionally rendered human drama, Forged in Crisis stands as a towering achievement. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nancy Koehn.

Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She is descended from one of the three magical races - shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In the case of Bryar, that template should be Sleeping Beauty. Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the Sleeping Beauty life template. Not even close. She does not like birds or woodland creatures. She cannot sing a note. And she certainly cannot stand Prince Philpot, the so-called His Highness of Hedge Funds that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar finds herself attracted to a hottie werewolf named Knox and is under attack by evil mummy-zombies. If Bryar cannot figure out who - or what - she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives...as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself. 1. Language: English.

Apocalyptic millennialism is one of the most powerful strands in evangelical Christianity. It is not a single belief, but across many powerful evangelical groups there is general adhesion to faith in the physical return of Jesus in the Second Coming, the affirmation of a Rapture heavenward of ´´saved´´ believers, a millennium of peace under the rule of Jesus and his saints and, eventually, a final judgement and entry into deep eternity.A key figure in this process was John Nelson Darby. Akenson emphasizes that, as strong a personality as Darby was, the real story is that he became a vector for the transmission of a terrifically complex and highly seductive ideological system from the old world to the new. So beguiling, adaptable, and compelling was the new Dispensational system that Darby injected into North American evangelicalism that it continued to spread logarithmically after his death. By the 1920s, the system had become the doctrinal template of the fundamentalist branch of North American evangelicalism and the distinguishing characteristic of the best-selling Scofield Bible. 1.
