GREEK STYLE, by Suzan Slesin
Rustic and elegant, ancient and modern, minimal and yet rich in detail, the style of Greece is one of exciting contrasts. This volume captures not only the authentic simplicity of Greek interior design, but also the remarkable liveliness of Greek culture. In a more than 700 splendid full-color photographs, simple whitewashed village homes convey the spellbinding magic of living in Greece.

VANISHING GREECE, by Patrick Leigh Fermor
A celebration of a country whose ancient landscape and culture are changing irrevocably. This is the real Greece lovingly recorded in 250 color photographs; the people and their traditional way of life, their homes, villages, day-to-day activities and festivals, as well as haunting and varied landscape of the country itself.
AT THE PALACE OF KNOSSOS by Nikos Kazantzakis
Blending historical fact and classical myth, the author transports the reader three thousand years into the past: the final days before the ancient kingdom of Minoan Crete is to be conquered and supplanded by the city-state of Athens. The familiar figures who peopled that ancient world - King Minos, Theseus and Ariadne, the Monotaur, Daidalos and Ikaros - fill the pages of this novel.
229 pages, 6x9 inches, Paper $12.95.
