Broderie po tique
Nathalie Locquen déroule l'histoire de la Princesse aux petits riens qui aime amasser des petites choses, un peu kitsch, un peu ringardes, ces petits riens dont personne ne veut, laissés à l'abandon, poussiéreux et oubliés, pour leur donner vie, les transformer, avec du fil et une aiguille, en de doux objets. Ce livre propose de découvrir un monde habité d'Improbables, ce petit peuple d'êtres imaginaires, un monde où les vacances sont éternelles, où les maisons de famille regorgent de trésors oubliés où les lapins sont des coureurs automobiles, les ballerines dansent au fond des bouteilles, les escargots font les jolis curs. Cet ouvrage contient 17 projets de broderie traditionnelle ou aux rubans, objets en 3D emplis de poésie, conçus à partir de supports de récupération. L'imagination, le charme et la qualité de réalisation signent un univers unique à explorer de toute urgence.
Mademoiselle de Maupin

Embarking on an affair with the lovely Rosette to ease his boredom, he is thrown into tumultuous confusion when she receives a dashing young visitor. Exquisitely handsome, Théodore inspires passions d'Albert never believed he could feel for a man - and Rosette also seems to be in thrall to the charms of her guest. Does this bafflingly alluring person have a secret to hide? Subversive and seductive, Mademoiselle de Maupin (1835) draws readers into the bedrooms and boudoirs of a French château in a compelling exploration of desire and sexual intrigue.

The Sweet Cheat Gone
"Mademoiselle Albertine has gone!" How much farther does anguish penetrate in psychology than psychology itself! A moment ago, as I lay analysing my feelings, I had supposed that this separation without a final meeting was precisely what I wished, and, as I compared the mediocrity of the pleasures that Albertine afforded me with the richness of the desires which she prevented me from realising, had felt that I was being subtle, had concluded that I did not wish to see her again, that I no longer loved her. But now these words: "Mademoiselle Albertine has gone!" had expressed themselves in my heart in the form of an anguish so keen that I would not be able to endure it for any length of time. And so what I had supposed to mean nothing to me was the only thing in my whole life. How ignorant we are of ourselves. The first thing to be done was to make my anguish cease at once. Tender towards myself as my mother had been towards my dying grandmother, I said to myself with that anxiety which we feel to prevent a person whom we love from suffering: "Be patient for just a moment, we shall find something to take the pain away, don't fret, we are not going to allow you to suffer like this."
This early work by Guy de Maupassant was originally published in the 1880's. Guy de Maupassant was born in 1850 at the Château de Miromesnil, near Dieppe, France. He came from a prosperous family, but when Maupassant was eleven, his mother risked social disgrace by trying to secure a legal separation from her husband. After the split, Maupassant lived with his mother till he was thirteen, and inherited her love of classical literature. In 1880, Maupassant published his first – and, according to many, his best – short story, entitled 'Boule de Suif' ('Ball of Fat'). It was an instant success. He went on to be extremely prolific during the 1880s, working methodically to produce up to four volumes of short fiction every year. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
