Slow cooking is the culinary equivalent of stopping to smell the roses. During the week most of us opt for a quick and easy meal, but the weekend should be celebrated and enjoyed with a complete change of pace. This introduction to a new movement in the kitchen guides the way. It includes a mixture of traditional and modern recipes, chosen to reflect the pure enjoyment of cooking without time constraints. An original photograph illustrates each recipe, while photographs of the antique kitchenalia seek to further evoke the mood of an aroma-filled kitchen.

This second edition of Laster's Catalog combines in one volume the listings from the first catalog with the voluminous material that has appeared since 1973, more than doubling the number of citations. It is designed as an aid for the church musician and/or pastor seeking to plan unified worship services. It will also be of use to those church musicians who follow the Liturgical Calendar and plan music appropriate to the appointed lessons, as well as a source for non-church choir directors who would like to locate choral settings based on a particular passage from Scripture. Entries are arranged from Genesis through Revelation. Each main entry citation provides the biblical reference (book, chapter, and verse), as well as a reference to additional passages from Scripture used in the anthem. The composer, arranger, or editor and the title are listed as they appear on the octavo. Information on voicing, solos, and instrumental accompaniment is noted; the name of the publisher, the most recent date of publication and the octavo number appear at the end of each citation, where information on instrumental parts, other versions of the same title, and collections where the work might appear are also listed. Composer and title indexes round off the work.

For the past thirteen years, young American artist Chris Verene has carefully documented the strange and yet oddly familiar world of his family and friends. Verene's lush color images reveal freakishly beautiful stories of simple daily joys and troubling family secrets. Curators, critics, and museums from Atlanta to New York and Europe are exhibiting and discussing his moving portrayal of family, love, youth, and aging.
The geography of Chris Verene's color photography is primarily social, though the landscape is always a presence. Whether he is following his relatives around the dilapidated environs of Galesburg, Illinois, or locked in a suburban bedroom with five members of his "Camera Club" photographing a half-dressed woman draped over a bed, Chris Verene innerves us with a vision of daily life at once bizarre and banal. His high-key colors and composition occupy a terrain somewhere between William Eggleston and Nan Goldin. This is the artist's first book.
