Тщеславие, как известно, всегда было двигателем прогресса. И остаётся таким по сей день, когда люди гоняются за деньгами, чтобы затем сверкать золотой улыбкой, интригуют в высоких кабинетах, добиваясь очередной для себя награды. А то и просто собирают в коллекцию всякую ерунду, чтобы прослыть знатоком данного предмета. Вот о таких представителях нашей цивилизации и рассказывает юмористическая поэма Фёдора Быханова под названием "Мосты и медали". И если кто-то узнает себя в её героях и попробует начать жить иначе, то, наверное, окружающий мир будет удобнее для всех и светлее!

Artist, Charles Bragg brings us a view of his own special reality—and sheds new light on what we know of our own.In Asylum Earth, nothing is quite as it seems. Toulouse-Laurec shares a room with El Greco in «Art Heaven,» while back among the living, an irate «Letter to the Editor» demands that someone go in and finish «all those impressionist paintings—why leave just an impression?»Irrelevant and brilliantly funny, Bragg brings us a view of his own special reality—and sheds new light on what we know of our own. Witticisms, satire, and irony abound, and no profession or institution escapes Bragg's sharp eye. Often compared to Daumier, Nast, and Bosch, Bragg is a master of observation. Once our human frailties are scrutinized by his myopic gaze, we may never see ourselves in quite the same way again! Illustrated throughout with Bragg's paintings and etchings.
