"Beautiful and haunting."
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 08, 2011
Midnight Oil Publishing is proud to announce that Tel Aviv Stories, a book of critically praised fiction by Ashley Rindsberg, is now available at Israel's prestigious Bauhaus Center of Tel Aviv.
Since its release, Tel Aviv Stories has earned critical praise. The Jerusalem Post says the book "Leaves you wondering out loud," and YNet, the online edition of Israel's largest newspaper, calls it "Beautiful and haunting."
The Bauhaus Center (http://www.bauhaus-center.com) serves as a platform for the study and public education of Bauhaus architecture and design, which features prominently in Tel Aviv's urban landscape. Since Tel Aviv was designated a World Heritage Site in 2000, the Center's founders, Dr. Asher Ben Shmuel, Dr. Micha Gross and Shlomit Gross, have worked closely with Israel's National Commission of UNESCO.
Tel Aviv Stories is a compilation of seven works of fiction, six of which take place in Israel's White City. The book is peppered with references to the city's architecture, from its "toothless Bauhaus buildings" to the city's dust which settles in the "corners of pristine Bauhaus buildings."
The book's cover was also designed with a Bauhaus sensibility. The designer is noted French hip-hop album cover designer, Florent Fourniau. The black-and-white dominance of the cover follows Bauhaus' focus on primary color, and some of Tel Aviv's most distinctive buildings can be seen in the title's typography.
