Damn, I love this book. There isn’t a day since I bought it that I did not take a look inside. The idea is amazing and I had to laugh all the time. The graphics are so reduced to the maximum and so simple, sometimes childish but always 1,000 % to the point. “This is the perfect book for film buffs and anyone with a sense of humour or a short attention span.” I Got the German issue, but in ther imprint i saw that there must be an English original issue from 2013 with the title “FILM IN FIVE SECONDS” published by Quercus Publishing Plc, London. The book is made by MATTEO CIVASCHI and GIANMARCO MILESI – well done guys! The pictures you’ll find below are just some of my absolutely most beloved films. 150 Movies in graphics … where to start? Where to end? The next days I will give you the right titles to the graphics. But I think you’ll know a lot. Photos | LTG || Graphics | MATTEO CIVASCHI and GIANMARCO MILESI
What a wonderful book. A friend of mine ULI GASPER gave me the hint that i had to check this graphic novel as a beard lover. So I did. It is amazing. THE TIMES says “This book is a the same time a satire, a cut-off and a catastrophe film – an experience”. THE OBSERVER: “This book must be a classic”. THE GIGANTIC BEARD THAT WAS EVIL or in german, “Der gigantische Bart, der böse war” tells the story about Dave, who is living in a land called HERE, where all people live a monotone and regulatory overkilled life. When Dave begins someday to think over the sense about this f***ing world he lives in, a gigantic beard begins to grow: a shocking occasion which made such a chaos to Dave’s life and the whole land he lives in. This graphic novel is a bow to these great names: ORWELL, KAFKA and GODZILLA. So exciting, so very well drawn – a wonderful book done by STEPHEN COLLINS who lives in London. 240 pages, hardcover, 21,5 x 30,5 cm big. pics | LTG

maybe you remember LTG post about VINTAGE PANERAI HISTORY 2 from july 2013. i was exalted about the book that i read it completely in 2 days. and believe me, this book just as HISTORY 1 is not only for PANERAI lovers. the stories about the KAMPFSCHWIMMER and their adventures and experiences during WWII are really fascinating and impressive. both books VINTAGE PANERAI HISTORY 1 and 2 are available at: www.vintagepanerai.com .
here some sentences from the authors VOLKER WIEGMANN and RALF EHLERS about these two fascinating books.
sorry, but this is written bullshit: this translation has absolutely nothing to do with the lines i wrote in german …

it was pure luck finding this really funny and exciting book written by, for me unknown, “PARKS & RECREATION” actor NICK OFFERMAN. in his first book he shares his “humorous fulminations of life, manliness, meat, and much more”. i just had the time to read over the first pages and it is great! here a short description by the editor: “Growing a perfect moustache, grilling red meat, wooing a woman, who better to deliver this tutelage than the always charming, always manly Nick Offerman, best known as Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson? Combining his trademark comic voice and very real expertise in woodworking, he runs his own woodshop. Paddle Your Own Canoe features tales from Offerman’s childhood in small-town Minooka, Illinois, “I grew up literally in the middle of a cornfield”, to his theater days in Chicago, beginnings as a carpenter/actor and the hilarious and magnificent seduction of his now-wife Megan Mullally. It also offers hard-bitten battle strategies in the arenas of manliness, love, style, religion, woodworking, and outdoor recreation, among many other savory entrees., A mix of amusing anecdotes, opinionated lessons and rants, sprinkled with offbeat gaiety, Paddle Your Own Canoe will not only tickle readers pink but may also rouse them to put down their smart phones, study a few sycamore leaves, and maybe even hand craft (and paddle) their own canoes.” pics & video | Nick Offerman, LTG
