Conte en bibliothèque
Author: Évelyne Cevin
Publisher: Editions du Cercle de La Librairie
Le conte en bibliothèque : pour quoi faire ? Cette alliance de l'écrit et de l'oral n'est-elle pas, a priori, quelque peu contradictoire ? Et d'ailleurs, qu'entend-on par conte ? Conte littéraire, conte populaire ? Que penser de ce genre ? Comment le définir ? Comment constituer un fonds riche et attrayant ? Lit-on les contes, les dit-on ? À qui ? Que penser de l'institutionnelle " Heure du conte " ? Est-elle véritablement encore pratiquée ? A quelles fins ? Le conte intéresse-t-il toujours à l'heure des ordinateurs ? Faut-il le réserver aux plus petits ? Et les adolescents, les adultes ? Qui transmettra ces récits ? Les bibliothécaires ? Les nouveaux conteurs, amateurs ou professionnels ? Après quelques brefs rappels historiques, quelques définitions des différentes familles de contes, quelques réflexions concernant leur transmission, leur transcription, leur survivance grâce à l'écrit et leur retour à l'oralité, on verra pourquoi il est si important d'en nourrir nos enfants dès leur plus jeune âge. Puis, à travers une brève histoire des bibliothèques pour la jeunesse, quelques témoignages actuels, on pourra redécouvrir une part essentielle, parfois un peu trop oubliée aujourd'hui, du métier de bibliothécaire. En guise de conclusion, quelques bibliographies et six variantes d'un conte très connu. Ce livre est le résultat d'un faisceau d'expériences, de points de vue très divers d'universitaires et de praticiens. Il est le fruit d'amitiés nouées au fil des années, de transmissions, de discussions parfois houleuses, de beaucoup de rires partagés, de travail, d'anecdotes... Le conte était propice à ces rencontres imprévues et La Joie par les livres, institution atypique s'il en est, en a été le lieu idéal.

Scott Kelby was honored with Professional Photographer magazine’s highly coveted 2008 Hot One Award for The Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers. Here’s what Jeff Kent, the Hot One Editor at Professional Photographer, has to say about the book: “In a how-to published by Peachpit Press, Scott Kelby, best-selling author on Adobe Photoshop, delves into CS3 to uncover the most important and useful techniques for digital photographers. Our judges liked Kelby’s direct approach with step-by-step instructions. In this new edition, Kelby shares even more secrets from the top pros.” Shutterbug magazine chose The Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers as a Top Digital Book of 2007. Here’s what Joe Farace of Shutterbug has to say about the book: “Scott Kelby’s name on a Photoshop book is like the Dodge brand on the front of a pickup truck. You know it’s built RAM—or pixel—tough. Combining his famous twisted wit with unwaveringly straight tutorials, Kelby takes you through a detailed tour of Photoshop CS3 by showing how to use the new features. No fluff; just page after page of well-illustrated tutorials showing photographers how to get the most out of the new features, commands, and effects found in the latest version of Adobe’s flagship. It will get you up to speed on CS3’s new features faster than you can all by yourself.” Scott Kelby, the #1 best-selling Photoshop author in the world today, once again takes this book to a whole new level as he uncovers the latest, most important, and most exciting new Adobe Photoshop CS3 techniques for digital photographers. This major update to his award-winning, record-breaking book does something for digital photographers that’s never been done before–it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly “how to do it.” It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure it out on your own. Instead, Scott shows you step-by-step the exact techniques used by today’s cutting-edge digital photographers, and best of all, he shows you flat-out exactly which settings to use, when to use them, and why. That’s why the previous editions of this book are widely used as the official course study guide in photography courses at college and universities around the world, and this new edition for Photoshop CS3 exposes even more of the top pros’ most closely-guarded secrets. Learn How The Pros Do It Each year Scott trains thousands of professional photographers on how to use Photoshop, and almost without exception they have the same questions, the same problems, and the same challenges–and that’s exactly what he covers in this book. You’ll learn: • The sharpening techniques the pros really use. • The pros’ tricks for fixing the most common digital photo problems fast! • How to get great looking prints (that actually match your screen!) • A whole chapter on the latest, most requested Photoshop special effects! • How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat. • How to process Raw images, plus how to take advantage of all the new Camera Raw features in CS3! • The portrait retouching secrets only the pros know about! • How to add real automation to your work. • How to show your work like a pro! Plus a host of shortcuts, workarounds, and slick “insider” tricks to send your productivity through the roof! If you’re a digital photographer, and you’re ready to learn the “tricks of the trade”–the same ones that today’s leading pros use to correct, edit, sharpen, retouch, and present their work–then you’re holding the book that will do just that.

Head First HTML and CSS
Author: Elisabeth Robson, Eric Freeman
Publisher: "O'Reilly Media, Inc."
Tired of reading HTML books that only make sense after you're an expert? Then it's about time you picked up Head First HTML and really learned HTML. You want to learn HTML so you can finally create those web pages you've always wanted, so you can communicate more effectively with friends, family, fans, and fanatic customers. You also want to do it right so you can actually maintain and expand your web pages over time so they work in all browsers and mobile devices. Oh, and if you've never heard of CSS, that's okay--we won't tell anyone you're still partying like it's 1999--but if you're going to create web pages in the 21st century then you'll want to know and understand CSS. Learn the real secrets of creating web pages, and why everything your boss told you about HTML tables is probably wrong (and what to do instead). Most importantly, hold your own with your co-worker (and impress cocktail party guests) when he casually mentions how his HTML is now strict, and his CSS is in an external style sheet. With Head First HTML, you'll avoid the embarrassment of thinking web-safe colors still matter, and the foolishness of slipping a font tag into your pages. Best of all, you'll learn HTML and CSS in a way that won't put you to sleep. If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect: a visually-rich format designed for the way your brain works. Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, this book will load HTML and CSS into your brain in a way that sticks. So what are you waiting for? Leave those other dusty books behind and come join us in Webville. Your tour is about to begin.
