    Henk van Rensbergen is a Boeing 787 pilot who flies around the globe. While his crew rests at the swimming pool, he goes out to explore abandoned places in our world. From the breakaway state of Abkhazia, a floating warship cemetery in France, a forgotten love hotel in Japan to an abandoned rail depot in Detroit, van Rensbergen searches for the beauty of their desolation and pinpoints the richness of their decay. Van Rensbergen is a pioneering urban explorer. His Abandoned Places photo books (1, 2, 3 and The Photographer's Selection) have been highly successful. This complete revised edition shows his most iconic photos of the past 25 years, including new unpublished material and anecdotes.

  • What if customers expect more than just a good product, excellent service and perfectly performing digital interfaces? And what if new technologies like 5G, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and robotics offer possibilities that go beyond mere ease of use?

    Digital ease of use is the new minimum. It has become a commodity. The customer now regards it as the most normal thing in the world to have access to limitless products and services with just a single click of a mouse. In the years ahead, companies will need to play an active role in the 'life journey' of customers: helping to make their dreams come true and removing problems from their daily lives. In addition, customers are looking increasingly to companies instead of governments to tackle societal challenges like climate change, health care and mobility.

    If your company succeeds in providing outstanding digital service, becomes a partner in the life of your customers and provides solutions for major societal issues, you will develop 'an offer you can't refuse'.

  • In effective animation programming, one must be able to rely on theoretical knowledge as well as research-based insights in applicability. This updated version of Animation Maths contains an overview of both.

    In addition to exploring collision detection, it also puts forward a discussion of programmable kinematics. These physics of motion, designed to complement programming, offer an invaluable tool in adding realism to games and animations. Furthermore, screen effects and image handling are taken to a professional level by a detailed outline of all the basic transformations.

    The uniqueness of this book lies in its calculus-free approach. In order to cover the basics of the discipline, Animation Maths contains a brief summary of the fundamentals in arithmetics, solving systems and trigonometry. Animation Maths is accompanied by the website www.animationmaths.be which contains online support and useful downloads.

    "Animation Maths achieves a perfect balance between deductive mathematics and broad accessibility, particularly through its interactive companion site." Leo Storme (Pure Mathematics and Computer Algebra, UGent) "With Animation Maths, Ivo De Pauw and Bieke Masselis present motion related mathematical subjects, ranging from trigonometry to quaternions and kinematics in an understandable fashion. It's a true game developers toolkit." Fries Carton (Guerrilla Games, Amsterdam)

    When it comes to foreign visitors or artists, North Korea must be the most restrictive country in the world. Nevertheless, Carl De Keyzer managed to cross the entire country in 42 days, divided into three journeys. In his latest book, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer points his lens at North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the last communist state in the world from an ideological, political and cultural perspective.

    De Keyzer is one of very few photographers who get almost-unlimited access to the country. He photographed more than 200 different locations, many of which had never been captured on camera before. The 250 photos that form his 'Grand Tour' - taken on marches, at the shooting range, in the subway and in family homes - are a testament to this country's uniqueness.

    Pourquoi le nombre de cas d'obésité augmente-t-il dès qu'un nouvel hypermarché ouvre ses portes ? Pourquoi les plus grandes entreprises au monde s'arrogent-elles tous les bénéfices ? Pourquoi les clubs de football des petits pays arrivent-ils rarement à dépasser le stade des tours préliminaires de la Champions League ?
    Dix ans après le début de la crise financière et dix ans après la publication de son best-seller Econochoc, Geert Noels nous propose une nouvelle et audacieuse analyse de l'économie mondiale. Son diagnostic : notre monde souffre de gigantisme. Les entreprises et les organisations ne cessent de gagner en taille et en puissance, tuant la saine concurrence, créant une croissance non durable et mettant l'humain sous pression, avec comme conséquence la hausse du nombre de maladies dites de civilisation, comme le burn-out et l'obésité.
    Dans GIGANTISME, Geert Noels propose aussi dix solutions pour changer les règles du jeu économique, dompter les géants et rendre à l'humain et à l'environnement la place qui leur revient dans l'économie mondiale. Pour y arriver, nous n'avons pas d'autre choix que de mettre fin à la course au gigantisme et de privilégier la lenteur et le retour à un monde plus humain.

    Drawing enhances memorisation, understanding, talking and listening and sparks communication. It is a universal language, and can help you convey your message more clearly and engagingly - especially during meetings, while laying out ideas or simply in a brainstorming session. So why have all of us stopped drawing at a certain point in our lives?
    Start to Draw is a fun and clear-cut guide to drawing and visualising your ideas in your work environment. It is an accessible, bite-size book providing insight into why drawing works, how you can have a great impact on your own (and others') professional work, and how you can end up with a more creative approach to your job.

  • Cobalt blues : la sape d'un géant ; Congo 1960-2020 Nouv.

    Les Panama Papers de la RD Congo: pourquoi ce pays potentiellement riche est-il tellement pauvre ? Une accusation tranchante contre le pillage des matières premières du Congo, pendant que la population souffre Dans Cobalt blues le journaliste Erik Bruyland plonge dans l'histoire postcoloniale de son pays natal, la République Démocratique du Congo. Le passé colonial belge transmue vers des scènes quasi d'esclavage dans les mines les plus riches au monde. Alors pourquoi ce pays tellement riche est-il si pauvre ? Son travail fouillis de journalisme d'investigation dévoile comment des opportunistes et de spéculateurs ont - comme des vautours - pu mettre main-basse sur les richesses minières. Bruyland effiloche les carrousels économiques et financiers et les manigances géopolitiques qui ont abouti à la tragédie du Cobalt blues: l'or bleu qu'engrangent des sociétés offshore, la sueur noire n'en récoltant rien. Et tout ça pour assouvir notre appétence pour nos téléphones intelligents ou voitures électriques. Une analyse tranchante du dépérissement économique et politique de la RDC, avec en miroir le rôle et la responsabilité de l'ancien colonisateur belge

  • How will people shop in the future?
    Why are there so many bankruptcies in the retail sector and so many empty shops in our high streets?
    What can brands and retailers do to survive?

    Traditional retail is dead. Economic, demographic and above all technological developments have made it obsolete. The static shop has made way for a multiplicity of different retail forms. Thanks to digitalization, the world has become a single gigantic marketplace.
    As a result of this revolution, a new type of consumer has been born, who is also producer and retailer. Today, it is the shoppers who determine what a brand stands for and how it presents itself to the public. In a world of change, everything needs to be reinvented.
