Product Description & Reviews

The unbelievable true story of artist Thomas Kinkade, self-described "Painter of Light," and the dramatic rise--and fall--of his billion-dollar gallery and licensing businessHe was just one man, but Thomas Kinkade ultimately made more money from his art than every other artist in the history of the world combined. His sentimental paintings of babbling brooks, rural churches surrounded by brilliant fall foliage, and idyllic countryside cottages were so popular in the 1990s that it is estimated that one out of every twenty homes in America owned one of his prints. With the help of two partners--a former vacuum-cleaner salesman and an ambitious junior accountant who fancied himself a businessman--Kinkade turned his art into a billion-dollar gallery and licensing business that traded on the New York Stock Exchange before it collapsed in 2006 amid fraud accusations.One part fascinating business story about the rise and demise of a financial empire born out of divine inspiration, one part dramatic biography, Billion Dollar Painter is the account of three nobodies who made it big. One was a man who, despite being a devout Christian who believed his artwork was a spiritual force that could cure the sick and comfort the poor in spirit, could not save his art empire--or himself.G. Eric Kuskey, former colleague of Thomas Kinkade and close friend until the artist's death in 2012, tells Kinkade's story for the first time, from his art's humble beginnings on a sidewalk in Carmel, California, to his five-house compound in Monte Sereno. It's a tale of addiction and grief, of losing control, and ultimately, of the price of our dreams.

By Peter Lang GmbH, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften

Sprechhandeln meint das Erleben und Erproben der untrennbaren Verbindung von Sprache mit außersprachlichen Handlungselementen. Im Gegensatz zu dem bisher in Deutsch als Fremdsprache üblichen «Rollenspielen» geht es in diesem Ansatz um Reflexion über Kommunikation und Aktion - Bild und Spiel - nach sozial- und theaterpädagogischen Prinzipien. Transkulturelles Sprechhandeln bedeutet darüber hinaus das Sehen und Sichtbar-Machen von kulturellen Erscheinungsformen, um zu einem Begriff vom

Audiovisual Translation – Research and Use (Łódź Studies in Language)
By Peter Lang GmbH, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften
ean: 9783631722299, isbn: 363172229X,
This book explores two strands of Audiovisual Translation referred to as «research» and «use». As their points of convergence as well as divergence are brought to light, the contributors show that the two tend to overlap and cross-pollinate. The volume’s inquiries of linguistic, cultural, sociological, computational, educational and historical nature give a comprehensive up-to-date account of AVT as an expanding and heterogeneous, yet internally coherent, field of scientific and

Los atentados del once de septiembre de 2001 han dejado una huella imborrable en la cultura estadounidense en general y en las producciones audiovisuales en particular.

Digital Media: Transformations in Human Communication
By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
ean: 9781433132865, isbn: 1433132869,
The age of digital media has given rise to a new social world. It is a world in which the transmission of information from the few to the many is steadily being supplanted by the multi-directional flow of facts, lies, and ideas. It is a world in which hundreds of millions of people are voluntarily depositing large amounts of personal details in publicly accessible databases. It is a world in which interpersonal relationships are increasingly being conducted in the virtual sphere. Above all,
