Special photographic essays show helmet markings and ephemera. From designation as the U.S. Army's first airborne division in 1942 through the campaigns in Sicily, Italy, Anzio, Normandy, Holland, Belgium, and Germany all the way to the occupation of Berlin and the victory parade in New York, this is the story of the 82nd Airborne Division - The All American in World War II. A great reference for anyone interested in the 82nd Airborne Division in World War II and a fitting tribute to those who served in its ranks.

    Title: 'Tis the Season New York
    By (author): Betsy Pinover Schiff
    ISBN10-13: 0764356046 : 9780764356049
    No other American city dazzles during the winter holidays like New York, with its magical store windows, larger-than-life street decorations, and brilliant, tree-lit plazas. New York City photographer Betsy Pinover Schiff has gone uptown to Harlem, downtown to the 9/11 Memorial, and to all the boroughs—on foot, by subway, by double-decker bus, and on a tour boat decked with lights and garlands—to capture the city's creative spirit. Photographed mostly at night, scenes range from Rockefeller Center's ice rink and a Jewish Festival of Lights ceremony, to a puppet procession and elegantly decorated homes, offering a new, intimate, and heartwarming sense of the city. The book also contains a foreword by New York Times reporter James Barron, quotes from notable New Yorkers, and a map of the image locations. 'Tis the Season New York is a beautiful keepsake of the Big Apple, burnished and bedazzled during the most festive time of the year.
    About The Author:
    Betsy Pinover Schiff is a photographer of landscape architecture, gardens, and travel destinations. She is the principal photographer of six books, and her images have appeared in The New York Times, numerous magazines, and many publications for non-profit organizations.

    ISBN10-13: 0764327585 : 9780764327582
    Relive an era when the kitchen was kitsch -- melamine bowls were pink and purple, cocktail shakers and party glasses sported fun themes, iced tea was served in sweaty spun aluminum of futuristic metallic shades, and wall clocks kept time in bright plastic frames shaped to evoke the jet age. This wonderful collector's guide helps to date and value items manufactured for the kitchen in the mid-20th century. items range from ever popular cocktail accessories to serving ware, pitchers and glassware, canisters, spice racks, trivets, ashtrays, rotary wall phones, chalkware ornaments, and salt and pepper shakers. Here is a nostalgic trip back in time, to mom's eat-in kitchen where family and neighbors gathered for cards, gossip, and good eats.

    By (author): Barbara Ifert
    ISBN10-13: 0887406130 : 9780887406133
    This new book is an excellent reference for the multitude of ceramics items marked "MADE IN JAPAN" that were exported between 1921 and 1941, after Japanese manufacturers used the "NIPPON" mark and before the "MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN" mark. The 350 color photographs show hundreds of household ceramics arranged in an easy-to-find alphabetical order from ash trays to wall pockets. The Price Guide makes clear that this is an excellent field for collectors priced out of other fields.

    Title: "Tails" of the Afterlife
    Sub-title: True Stories of Ghost Pets
    By (author): Peggy Schmidt
    ISBN10-13: 0764332538 : 9780764332531
    Learn how departed animals communicate with their owners with either "Postcards" or "Kisses" from heaven and other heartwarming and funny stories. This book highlights true "tails" about animals that have visited their owners from the afterlife. For anyone who has ever loved an animal, these stories will produce a roller coaster of emotions and the belief that their "heart animal" will always be there for them-even after leaving this world. Harrison the Greyhound refused to leave the van he rode in, even after he passed away; Boo Boo, the long-deceased Boston Terrier, reappears any time another pet needs to cross to the other side, and Coco's barking from beyond saved her family from a fire. Do pets return from the dead to contact their owners? Can pets actually see spirits that exist in your home? Does your pet have the drive to protect you from spirits that appear at your bedside? Decide for yourself as you read these ghostly stories.
    About The Author:
    Peggy Schmidt, President of Ghost Tours of America, shares ghost stories from the Outer Banks. She is also author of Tails of the Afterlife †True Stories of Ghost Pets.

    Title: A Bit of Brundage
    Sub-title: The Illustration Art of Frances Brundage
    By (author): Sarah Steier
    ISBN10-13: 0764307169 : 9780764307164
    Sarah Steier and Donna Braun have pooled their extensive collections to write A Bit of Brundage, a book about the prolific and very collectible American illustrator Frances Brundage. This volume contains over 500 color illustrations, taken from calendars, books, postcards, paper and cloth dolls, prints, advertisements, and other items--all decorated by the artist during the period from the late 1800s to the mid-1930s. Brundage was atypical of her time, as a woman who successfully supported herself by her art from an early age. She became a well-known and sought-after illustrator, with a working career that spanned generations. Today, those who love her drawings of children and beautiful ladies also will be intrigued by her humor. Students of illustration will find A Bit of Brundage a revelation, and the rest of us will quite simply enjoy it.

    Title: A Century of American Sculpture
    Sub-title: The Roman Bronze Works Foundry
    By (author): Lucy D. Rosenfeld
    ISBN10-13: 0764315196 : 9780764315190
    For over a century the majority of America's major sculptors chose one particular foundry to cast their works in bronze. That foundry was the Roman Bronze Works and its castings (and often the initials R.B.W.) represent a vast and fascinating collection of sculptures, ranging from the monuments of French and Saint-Gaudens to the cowboys of Remington and Russell, from the grand and graceful figures of Paul Manship and the charming salon pieces of Bessie Potter Vonnoh, to the brilliant abstractions of Archipenko and Calder. To study the ledgers and archival photographs of Roman Bronze Works is to see the unfolding of American sculpture through the 20th century, for here are examples from the many schools and "isms" that locked the nation's art world in titanic battles between realism and modernism and the many significant styles in between. Over 700 photographic examples (many in color) and biographical information about over 120 sculptors make up this book, the first to examine R.B.W.'s role in American art.
    About The Author:
    Lucy D. Rosenfeld is author of several books on art and architecture, art education, and cultural history. She has also written walking guides to public art, historic sites, and gardens.
