... ? "History of Beauty" (Rizzoli, 438 pages, $40)Mr. Eco is the author of several other novels and a short shelf of books on various literary and philosophical topics. With "History of Beauty" he has entered the realm of coffee-table books, again taking a highbrow approach to a venerable genre.
"History of Beauty" (Rizzoli, 438 pages, $40) is more than 400 pages long. There are at least that many illustrations--sumptuous full-page, full-color reproductions of art works, postage-stamp-sized photographs of celebrities and celebrity objects, scores of black-and-white pictures, diagrams, sketches, mementos. Sandwiched in between the visuals are quotations from Xenophon, from Sappho, from Nietzsche, from Thomas Aquinas, from Rimbaud and Baudelaire, from Kant and Shakespeare, and from Edmund Burke. If someone wrote tellingly about art or beauty, it's likely that you'll find his name here.

This year he's a free man, but he's more likely to be thieving his way round the West End than tucking into turkey and plum pudding - because there's no holiday from his heroin habit. Here, in a raw and frank account, he describes the festive season both inside and out

'What he liked about it was its impermanence. What's going to survive? Perhaps nothing. And he found that reassuring. If you want to know what it was like to live through the 20th century, he was there. When they were burning the books in Berlin, in Hollywood, in the British movie industry, communes, mystical religions, lost a partner in the First World War, survived the Second. It's all there.'

... ? Guardian Unlimited | Arts features | 'The worse the break-up, the better the art'Sophie Calle views the suffering that comes with the end of a relationship with uncontained glee. From a creative point of view, the worse the break-up, the better the art: even as she is experiencing pain, the artist in her is starting to calculate how best she can exploit it.
Her new book, Exquisite Pain, is the product of a period of intense grief she experienced 20 years ago - so bad that she packed up everything associated with the relationship and its end, and left it untouched in a box until she felt strong enough to deal with it.
... ? Pride and prejudiceTheir gigs have been cancelled all over the world and their names withdrawn from awards.

... ? Michael Collins' Web PageBig for his age, Michael had a keen mind as well as a fit, athletic body. He loved to read. His sister, Mary Ann, heightened his interest in the struggle for nationalism, and because of her, he devoured the writings of men such as poet and Nationalist, Thomas Davis. Worried that he might fall in with a bad sort, his mother sent him to Clonakilty to study for the Post Office examinations and to live with his sister Margaret. Here he worked briefly for his brother-in-law who owned the West Cork People, a newspaper of the area. Michael learned typesetting and wrote articles of local sporting events. After a year and a half, he went to London where he lived with his sister Hannie, in West Kensington and worked for the Postal Savings Bank in West Kensington. He was fifteen. Michael would spend the next nine years in London.

... ? Guardian Unlimited | Arts special reports | Turner prize shock: out of four serious competitors, the best artist wins2004-12-06Even the losers won't have a word to say against the winner: last night Jeremy Deller, unprecedentedly the favourite of the bookies, the critics, the public, and his own fellow artists, won the £25,000 Turner prize.
The judges praised his "generosity of spirit, across a succession of projects which engage with social and cultural context and celebrate the creativity of individuals".
The 38-year-old Londoner, who describes himself as "not a technically capable person", is almost unnaturally well-liked both by the art world and the general public.
