Complementary Medicine, Beauty and Modelling offers readers the knowledge to naturally improve their appearance, slow the ageing process, and experience increased physical and emotional security. By understanding and applying some basic principles of complementary medicine, readers should be able to strengthen their physical bodies, improving upon the individual qualities that they appreciate most, whilst also improving upon those that they feel they might be lacking. Beauty is often considered a commodity reserved for the young and slim, and modelling the domain of the impossibly attractive. As a result, the majority of both men and women may never envisage themselves possessing the physical criteria for a career spent posing in front of cameras or strutting the worlds catwalks. However, it is important to remember that each person possesses individual characteristics and personal attributes that make them unique. Addressing these attributes will improve their appearance, and often result in improved temperament and appreciation of individual strengths. The beauty that a woman expresses in her daily life is a declaration of herself and the person she wishes to present to the world, whether it is while caring for children and family, managing a business, studying, or spending time with friends and family. This is no less so for men, who often see physical appearance and strength as a means to establish their relationship with their body and declare their presence. This book offers an insight into concepts of physical beauty and photographic modelling, and encourages the reader to view the body from a different perspective. Physical features aside, the book delves into the body/mind relationship, and draws upon the wisdom of philosophies such as naturopathy, nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine, Bach flower remedies, acupuncture, mineral therapy, iridology, yoga, meditation, and natural remedies, without ignoring skin care, cosmetics, perfume, and paramedical tattooing. With even a basic knowledge of the principles of complementary medicine, readers can begin to understand and improve upon perceived flaws in their physical features, and gain the confidence to recognise the personal attributes that make them each individuals. We encourage readers to appreciate the unique beauty that is within each of us, and recognise that a nutritious diet, healthy lifestyle, and positive view of themselves are the keys to maintain emotional stability and emphasise their appearance.

About the author

The authors first became involved in photographic modelling after meeting and working with professional photographers and models in Australia and the United Kingdom. Their exposure to the modelling industry led them to combine their knowledge of complementary medicine and beauty therapy as a means to improve physical appearance by safe and natural means. Agata Listowska gained her Masters in sport and physiotherapy in 1988 from AWF, Gdansk, Poland. She later worked as a model in Australia whilst studying and graduated in acupuncture with qualifications in beauty therapy, iridology, and kinesiology. After graduating in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts in law and political science from the Australian National University, Mark Nicholson progressed to further studies in naturopathy, herbal medicine, homoeopathy, iridology, ryodoraku, acupuncture, and kinesiology. In 1991, Mark was awarded the Australian Service Order for Natural Medicine (civil award) after working in Far North Queensland with Indigenous communities. As a practitioner in these fields, he also authored the Constitution of the New Zealand Charter of Health Practitioners, and Chaired the Australian Self-Regulation Task Force of the Natural Health Professions. He taught at various natural therapy establishments, and lectured in justice studies at the Queensland University of Technology.

“I’ve paged through stacks of books on the history of watches. . . . But I hadn’t come across a book that actually moved me until I picked up A Man and His Watch. The volume is filled with heartfelt stories.”
—T: The New York Times Style Magazine

Paul Newman wore his Rolex Daytona every single day for 35 years until his death in 2008. The iconic timepiece, probably the single most sought-after watch in the world, is now in the possession of his daughter Clea, who wears it every day in his memory. Franklin Roosevelt wore an elegant gold Tiffany watch, gifted to him by a friend on his birthday, to the famous Yalta Conference where he shook the hands of Joseph Stalin and Winston Churchill. JFK’s Omega worn to his presidential inauguration, Ralph Lauren’s watch purchased from Andy Warhol’s personal collection, Sir Edmund Hillary’s Rolex worn during the first-ever summit of Mt. Everest . . . these and many more compose the stories of the world’s most coveted watches captured in A Man and His Watch. Matthew Hranek, a watch collector and NYC men’s style fixture, has traveled the world conducting firsthand interviews and diving into exclusive collections to gather the never-before-told stories of 76 watches, completed with stunning original photography of every single piece. Through these intimate accounts and Hranek’s storytelling, the watches become more than just timepieces and status symbols; they represent historical moments, pioneering achievements, heirlooms, family mementos, gifts of affection, and lifelong friendships.
“A sumptuous book which will delight idolaters of high fashion and movie stardom.” —Times Literary Supplement

Audrey Hepburn is a sumptuous celebration of Hepburn as a beloved fashion icon and actress. Karney tells the story of Hepburn’s life, from her childhood in Nazi-occupied Holland, through her early aspirations to become a ballet dancer, the instant and universal acclaim of her onscreen debut and her years as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after stars, to her later life working among the poorest children of the Third World. Karney’s book gives fans a rare view into the life of a beloved star.

Hepburn’s acting career began after a series of minor revue and film roles in London. Hepburn was spotted by the writer Colette, who immediately cast her in the central role of a Broadway adaptation of her story, Gigi. Soon afterwards, Hepburn was offered a role alongside Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday, for which she collected an Oscar for Best Actress. The book highlights all her success that followed: she won the Tony Award for Best Actress for Ondine, captivated audiences as Natasha in War and Peace, and was highly praised for her brilliance in a serious role in The Nun’s Story. Hepburn’s style was perfection, and her clothes—many of them designed by Givenchy, who dressed her for Funny Face in 1957—placed her on the world’s Best-Dressed Women list for several consecutive years. Her personality and sensuous yet untouchable beauty made her irresistible to the public. On Hepburn’s death, Liz Taylor said, “God has a most beautiful new angel now that will know just what to do in heaven.”
