From left-field satire to hit children’s TV series, from short animations for websites to full-scale, internationally distributed films, the book presents an astonishing array of creative work, casting light on the development of characters, forms, backgrounds and narrative sequences, and also showing finished frames that grew out of the initial, sketched ideas.

Blend in and slowly but surely get noticed for doing something that’s interesting or funny or relevant or cool or different’ Erik Kessels ‘We used to start with commerce and work out to the culture, and now we need to start with culture and work back to commerce’ Dylan Williams, Mother The Stuff You Can’t Bottle Advertising for the Global Youth Market King Adz Reporting from the front line of youth advertising, King Adz gets to the core of what makes a successful campaign today You can’t bottle it; you can’t Google it. What is the magic that creates a spark between brands and young people? How do you capture something that’s so dynamic it’s gone before you know it? There are no tried and tested formulas. You have to speak the right language in the right place; the only way for advertisers and brands to connect with young people is to get involved with the cultures and subcultures that make up their world. In The Stuff You Can’t Bottle, King Adz digs deep to discover the best ways to create a big idea that forges a real connection with the audience. King Adz’s research has taken him across the globe: Europe and North America, Brazil, Russia, China, India, Hong Kong, South Africa and beyond. He has visited skate parks, clubs, gigs, music festivals and street art events. In each location, he has talked to young people to find out what really fires them, and he has talked to the young advertising creatives who have succeeded in connecting with them. King Adz shares his unique insight into the cultures of young people worldwide in 88 themes, including viral video, augmented reality, girls and boys, sex and subcultures, as well as case histories of stand-out campaigns and brands (Vans, Stüssy, Levi’s and more). There are interviews with the ‘legends’ – ad execs who have cracked this notoriously tricky market – and comments throughout from creatives working right now around the world. If anyone can track what young people were buying yesterday, no one can predict what they’ll be into next month. But this book shows how to go about creating the great campaigns of tomorrow. The youth are leading the brands, not vice-versa; and this makes youth advertising one of the most exciting and dynamic creative industries in the world today. Design 9 LetterScapes A Global Survey of Typographic Installations Anna Saccani Anna Saccani studied Visual Communications and Multimedia Design at IUAV, Venice. She has worked as a graphic designer and writes for such architecture and design magazines as Casabella. A global survey of one of the most creative areas of public art – large-scale typographic installations – featuring work by leading practitioners from all over the world In today’s world we are bombarded with words – public spaces are saturated with a discordant mix of messages. But sometimes a sentence, a word or even an individual letter can stop us in our tracks. LetterScapes features thirty-seven such works from all over the world, from the USA to Europe to Asia, by artists and designers with large international followings, among them Joan Brossa, Maya Lin, Lawrence Weiner, Why Not Associates, Pentagram and Paula Scher. Photographs, maps and diagrams explore each project in detail, and an introduction highlights the cultural importance and common themes of the works featured. Interviews with key designers provide a personal insight into why they chose words over images to transmit their message, how the locations for their work are chosen, how they selected the material and the typeface, and how they think their work connects with its particular landscape or setting. LetterScapes is a fitting tribute to the power of type writ large. 350 illustrations, 308 in colour 25.0 x 19.0cm 352pp ISBN 978 0 500 241431 February £29.95 10 Design The Geometry of Type The Anatomy of 100 Essential Typefaces Stephen Coles Foreword by Erik Spiekermann Stephen Coles is a writer and typographer. After six years as creative director at FontShop in San Francisco, he now edits the websites Typographica, Fonts In Use and The Mid-Century Modernist. Erik Spiekermann founded MetaDesign, Germany’s largest design ﬁrm, in 1979 and FontShop in 1988; he now runs the design agency Edenspiekermann. A visual treat for anyone who loves fonts and typographic design The Geometry of Type is the ultimate guide to the intricacies of typeface design. It explores 100 traditional and modern typefaces in loving detail, with a full spread devoted to each entry. Characters from each typeface are enlarged and annotated to reveal key features, anatomical details, and the finer, often-overlooked elements of type design. The book also shows how these attributes affect mood and readability. Sidebar information lists the designer and foundry, the year of release and the different weights and styles available, and feature boxes explain the origins and best uses for each typeface, such as whether it is suitable for running text or as a display font for headlines. To help you spot each typeface in the wider world, the full character set is shown, and the best letters for identification are highlighted. A beautiful and highly practical work of reference for font spotters, designers and users, The Geometry of Type is a close-up celebration of typefaces and great type design.

Among her other books are Gaza Graffiti: Messages of Love and Politics and Tahrir Square: The Heart of the Egyptian Revolution. Tristan Manco is the author of Street Sketchbook, Stencil Graffiti, Graffiti Brasil and Street Logos, all published by Thames & Hudson. Charts the rise of a powerful art movement that has spread through Egypt’s streets with a mix of passion and optimism The Egyptian Revolution that began on 25 January 2011 immediately gave rise to a wave of popular political and social expression in the form of graffiti and street art, phenomena that were almost unknown in the country under the old regime. Mia Gröndahl, a noted photographer, has followed and documented the constantly and rapidly changing graffiti art of the new Egypt from its beginnings, and here in more than 430 colour images celebrates the imagination, the skill, the humour and the political will of the young artists and activists who have claimed the walls of Cairo and other Egyptian cities as their canvas. From the simplest hand-written messages, through stencils and martyr portraits, to the elaborate murals of Mohamed Mahmoud Street, the messages on the walls are presented in themed sections – Revolution & Freedom, Egyptian & Proud, Cross & Crescent, Martyrs & Heroes – punctuated by interviews with some of the individual artists whose work has broken fresh ground.

Lauder Collection Lynda Klich & Benjamin Weiss Lynda Klich is Distinguished Lecturer, Art and Art History Department and Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College, CUNY. Benjamin Weiss is Leonard A. Lauder Curator of Visual Culture at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Draws on one of the world’s finest and most comprehensive postcard collections to present an enthralling, exciting and sometimes disturbing portrait of the dawn of the modern age In the decades around 1900, postcards were Twitter, email, Flickr and Facebook all wrapped into one. A postcard craze swept the globe, wreaking havoc on international postal systems and giving rise to anecdotes about overburdened postmen who had to leave bags of cards undelivered. The craze for buying and sending postcards was married to a craze for collecting them. Millions upon millions of postcards were never posted; instead, they were tucked into boxes and albums, unused and in mint condition. Drawing on one of the finest and most comprehensive collections of postcards anywhere, The Postcard Age traces how big historical and cultural themes of the modern era played out on the postcard’s tiny canvas. Taken together, the almost 400 postcards represented in this book provide a vivid picture of the concerns, trends and pastimes of another era as well as a sampler of the artistic and historical riches offered by these messengers of the modern age.

Gombrich Francis Haskell Kenneth Clark Svetlana Alpers Heinrich Wรถlfflin Clement Greenberg The Books That Shaped Art History From Gombrich and Greenberg to Alpers and Krauss Edited by Richard Shone and John-Paul Stonard Richard Shone is Editor of The Burlington Magazine and author of a number of books on French and British art. John-Paul Stonard is an art historian formerly on the staff of The Burlington Magazine. He is the author of Fault Lines: Art in Germany 1945–55. Abounding with ideas, this overview of the history of art is told through its most enduring literature The Books That Shaped Art History provides an invaluable roadmap of the field by reassessing the impact of the most important texts of art history published during the twentieth century. Each of the sixteen incisive chapters, focusing on a single book, is written by a leading art historian, curator or one of the promising scholars of today. In bringing these cross-generational contributions together, the book presents a concise and brilliant overview of the history of art. The sixteen books include Nikolaus Pevsner’s gospel of Modernism, Pioneers of the Modern Movement, Alfred H. Barr’s now legendary monograph on Matisse, E.H. Gombrich’s Art and Illusion and Rosalind Krauss’s The Originality of the Avant-Garde and Other Modernist Myths, which introduced structuralist and poststructuralist philosophy into art historical study. Initiated by and prepared under the auspices of The Burlington Magazine, each chapter analyses a single major work, mapping the intellectual development of its author, setting out the premises and argument of the book, discussing its position within the field of art history, and looking at its significance in the context both of its initial reception and its legacy. An introduction by John-Paul Stonard explores how art history has been forged by these outstanding contributions to scholarship, as well as by the dialogues and ruptures between them. The book is supplemented by contextual essays summarising the achievements of each art historian and offering a detailed publication history of their texts. Enlivening debates and questioning the very status of art history itself, this is an essential resource for students, teachers, bibliophiles and all those interested in visual culture and its histories. 54 illustrations 23.5 x 16.9cm 264pp ISBN 978 0 500 238950 March £24.95 John Elderﬁeld on Alfred H.

Among his other books are Luca Signorelli: The Complete Paintings, also published by Thames & Hudson. Paul Joannides is Professor in the History of Art at the University of Cambridge. Sublime works of art that provide a deeper knowledge of one of the masters – with Leonardo and Michelangelo – of High Renaissance art Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Museo del Prado, this book focuses on a crucial but hitherto neglected part of Raphael’s oeuvre: the work he and his pupils executed in Rome during the seven years from 1513 to the artist’s death in 1520. Nearly ninety works – including paintings such as Saint Cecile and Portrait of Baldassere Castiglione, as well as many significant drawings – illustrate the ways in which Raphael employed an astonishing range of technical devices, many of which were highly novel and enjoyed considerable subsequent influence: Raphael’s workshop methods eventually became a model for the great artistic enterprises of the seventeenth century, notably those of Rubens, Bernini and Pietro da Cortona. The book also clarifies and focuses on the work of his two most important pupils, Gianfrancesco Penni and Giulio Romano. The text surveys Raphael’s late paintings in chronological order, explores his range of styles, and investigates the role of his workshop in the design and production of his pictures. 288 illustrations, 238 in colour 30.0 x 24.0cm 384pp ISBN 978 0 500 970492 April £39.95 18 Art The Young Van Dyck Edited by Alejandro Vergara and Friso Lammertse Alejandro Vergara is chief curator of Flemish and Northern European paintings at the Museo del Prado, Madrid. Friso Lammertse is curator of Old Master Paintings and Sculpture at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam. A magnificently illustrated book, packed with new scholarship, devoted to Van Dyck’s early work By the age of just twenty-two, Anthony Van Dyck (1599–1641) had produced over 160 paintings, many of them ambitious compositions of remarkable quality. This book offers an in-depth study of the artist’s early career, spanning the eight years between 1613, when the artist was just fourteen, to his departure for Italy from Antwerp in October 1621. Were the paintings he created during these years his only legacy, he would still be recognized as one of the greatest artists of the 17th century. Van Dyck’s precocious talents are brilliantly demonstrated in the many works reproduced here, among them such strikingly original masterpieces as The Betrayal of Christ and Saint Jerome in the Wilderness. Others – The Entry of Christ into Jerusalem and The Lamentation, for example – reveal Van Dyck at his most experimental. Van Dyck was also one of the first painters to rise to the challenge of Rubens’ omnipresent influence, evident in works such as Christ Crowned with Thorns. 278 illustrations, 242 in colour 30.0 x 24.0cm 416pp ISBN 978 0 500 970508 April £45.00 Art 19 ‘They protest against the immorality of my work, they criticize me for loving women … But they are incapable of understanding what I do’ Auguste Rodin Rodin & Eros Reannounced Pascal Bonafoux is a French writer and art historian, whose books include Van Gogh: The Passionate Eye and Rembrandt: Substance and Shadow. Pascal Bonafoux Surveys Rodin’s erotic depictions of women in drawings, sculptures, plasters, bronzes and marble The theme of the erotic is ever present in the work of Auguste Rodin, both in his sculptures and in his many drawings. Throughout his career, he depicted sexual desire in all its facets, in every mood from delicate innocence to frank intensity, bearing witness to an endless fascination with the flesh and a love of the female form. Taking a chronological path through Rodin’s career, this is an intimate approach to the many faces of sex and sensuality in his body of work and in the society within which his art was forged. The text discusses his relationships with women, his friendships with poets and artists, and the controversy that his sculptures caused in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when French society was marked by a hypocritical disparity between public morals and private desires. This witty and perceptive book, packed with beautiful images, will shed new light on this intriguing aspect of the artist’s world and his skill at capturing the fleeting nature of pleasure in timeless art. 156 illustrations, 140 in colour 20.0 x 17.0cm 272pp ISBN 978 0 500 239001 January £19.95 20 Art Vincent’s Trees Paintings and Drawings by Van Gogh Ralph Skea Ralph Skea was formerly the Senior Lecturer in European Urban Conservation at the University of Dundee. He is the author of Vincent’s Gardens, also published by Thames & Hudson. A gorgeous gift book showcasing the variety and beauty of the trees in Van Gogh’s oeuvre, and a companion volume to Vincent’s Gardens Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) felt a profound empathy with the natural environment, and considered the spiritual essence of trees to be comparable with that of human figures. Vincent’s Trees traces Van Gogh’s development as a painter of the arboral landscape – from his home province of North Brabant in Holland, through Paris to Provence. Ralph Skea’s elegant prose is accompanied by Van Gogh’s vibrant illustrations of trees, which range from pencil and ink sketches to watercolours and oils. Stylistic experiments encompassing Pointillism and compositions inspired by Japanese prints give way to the expressive, painterly depictions of his later work. The book’s pages are interspersed with quotes from Van Gogh’s letters, which convey the depth of his feeling for the natural landscape, and the force with which it affected him. This attractive gift book will appeal both to lovers of nature and lovers of Van Gogh’s paintings alike.

I cannot be called non-ﬁgurative while I am still interested in the modern magic of space, primitive sex forms, the sensual and the erotic, disconcerting contours, the things of life’ William Scott William Scott: Catalogue Raisonné of Oil Paintings Reannounced Sarah Whitﬁeld is an art historian, writer and curator. She is co-author of the René Magritte Catalogue Raisonné, and serves on the authentication committee for the Estate of Francis Bacon. Sarah Whitfield The complete oil paintings of William Scott, a central figure in 20th-century art Over the course of nearly sixty years, William Scott painted more than 1,000 works in oil, all of them catalogued in this magnificent new fourvolume publication. Each work is accompanied by a catalogue note giving reasons for the dating together with any documentary material relevant to its history, much of it published here for the first time. An enormous amount of new information has been unearthed during the six years of research that has gone into this important project, research that not only reveals a great deal more than was previously known about the artist’s life and work but also about how both these aspects of his career had a bearing on the wider context of contemporary British art. The artist’s own papers and many previously unpublished letters and lecture notes have been made available by his family especially for this project. This landmark work will provide cultural and art historians, as well as dealers and the art trade, with a vital tool for further research.

Berman A landmark study of 19th-century Danish painting, now available in a compact paperback format ‘A timely and important contribution to the sparse English-language literature on Danish painting … refreshingly detached and lucid … Berman’s writing is both scholarly and illuminating’ RA Magazine Between 1790 and 1910, Danish painters developed a national school of art that matched the artistic centres of France, Germany and Britain. The range of outstanding works created by Nicolai Abildgaard, Jens Juel, Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, Christen Købke, P. S.

C. Escher. A superb draughtsman, he set himself the challenge of portraying other-worldly transformations of space within the familiar boundaries set by a sheet of paper. The resulting images have become the favourite artworks of hundreds of thousands of people around the world. As beautiful and as rigorous as an Escher work itself, this book does brilliant justice to the artist’s visual invention. Escher’s works are arranged to form a cinematic journey of discovery, superbly interweaving his betterknown prints with numerous working drawings and sketches (including twelve colour fold-outs), the artist’s eloquent words, and observations by Escher expert J.

A reissued classic from the master of pop art, published to coincide with the major Lichtenstein retrospective showing at Tate Modern this spring One of the founders of pop art, Roy Lichtenstein is best known for large-scale renditions of comic-strip art, and for fusing comicbook techniques with ‘high art’ in his appropriations of such artists as Picasso and Mondrian. His distinctive look – filled with brilliant colour, dots and stripes – is one of the most identifiable in all contemporary art. Here Lichtenstein’s unique style celebrates the ABC, with results that are surprising, delightful and amusing. D is for a comically vicious growling Dog. H is a Horse that races by in dizzying blaze of dots and stripes.

The two-way inspirational relationship between the West and India, as seen through the prism of design and the visual arts Western Artists and India identifies the cross-cultural exchanges that took place between India and the West after decolonization, with its primary focus on important American and European artists and designers who travelled to India post independence and created works inspired by their visits. While providing a valuable portrait of a largely unacknowledged aspect of the history of art produced in India, their journeys serve as the conduit to an examination of the growth of Indian Modernism and rare moments of local patronage. This highly original volume has nearly 400 images, which include many hitherto unpublished photographs from personal archives. It comprises seven authoritative essays by noted critics and art historians; four fascinating interviews with the artists Howard Hodgkin, Lynda Benglis, Luigi Ontani and Wolfgang Laib; a specially commissioned contribution by the artist Matti Braun; and representative portfolios of 29 artists.

A consummate picture of a complex and conflicted artist whose work retains its visceral impact today Marking twenty years since Francis Bacon’s death, Francis Bacon: Five Decades provides a timely account of the life and work of Francis Bacon, one of the greatest figurative painters of the 20th century. Essays by international scholars provide new insights into Bacon’s art and life, and some fifty-five paintings from every decade of his career – from the pensive yet shocking works of the 1940s to the enormous, exuberantly coloured canvases of the 1970s and 80s – show Bacon’s unique representations of the human body through his mastery of paint. As well as the sensual enjoyment of paint, Bacon’s work speaks of violence, from depictions of a screaming pope to crucifixions, animals and carcasses, ancient Greek figures and distorted, emotionally charged portraits of his close friends and lovers. Over 150 additional illustrations portray his studio, friends and lovers, and reveal the diversity of his source materials, from Velázquez to the motion photos of Eadweard Muybridge.

Formerly a curator at London’s Hayward Gallery, she is the co-author with Suzy Klein of What is Contemporary Art? A Children’s Guide, also published by Thames & Hudson. Jacky Klein A revised and expanded edition of the definitive monograph on the Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry has captured the public imagination like no other British artist in recent memory. His hard-hitting yet exquisite work, which includes tapestry, prints, sculpture and drawing as well as pots, references his own upbringing and his life as a transvestite while also engaging with broader issues, from war and religion to politics and sex. In this first major monograph on the artist, now updated and expanded, Jacky Klein explores his work through a discussion of his major themes and subjects. A completely new chapter examines Perry’s fascination with pilgrimage, including many of his most renowned works, such as The Walthamstow Tapestry, The Westfield Vase, the cast-iron sculpture The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman, and the major tapestry cycle The Vanity of Small Differences. Perry’s own perceptive commentaries on individual pieces give unique access to his imaginative world and creative processes. With a fully up-to-date biography, bibliography and exhibition history, Grayson Perry remains the essential book on one of today’s most popular and important artists.

Yoko Ono is a renowned artist and activist. Bruce Ferguson is Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at The American University in Cairo. The first monograph to survey Cornelia Parker’s entire career from the late 1970s to today Cornelia Parker is one of the most thoughtful, profound and poetic artists working in Britain today. Exploring everything from ghosts and gravity to relics and the unconscious, she transforms everyday objects into compelling works of art.

Parker’s engaging commentaries describe her adventures with the unlikely institutions that have helped create her works, as well as her wide-ranging travels. Organized chronologically to show the development in Parker’s thinking and practice, the book features five thematic essays by Iwona Blazwick, a foreword by Yoko Ono and an introduction by curator Bruce Ferguson. Supplemented by a biography, bibliography and exhibition history, this is the definitive book on one of the leading artists of our time.

Literary Biography 39 46 illustrations 21.5 x 13.5cm 192pp paperback ISBN 978 0 500 290866 February £9.95 The Wry Romance of the Literary Rectory Deborah Alun-Jones Deborah Alun-Jones was brought up in an English village in Surrey and attended Wellington College, going on to study at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and University College London, where she specialized in the work of Jane Austen, Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath. Enchanting places that have inspired writers from Alfred Tennyson and Rupert Brooke to Vikram Seth and Edmund de Waal The British rural idyll is epitomized by the mellow bricks and mortar of the rectory: the icon of serenity, restraint, civility and continuity. While all is not what it seems, nevertheless – for many – the archetypal Georgian rectory nestling beside an ancient church evokes a scene from a Jane Austen novel. But for others it conjures up something much darker and elemental, such as the parsonage at Haworth on the Yorkshire Moors where the Brontë sisters led such confined yet creative lives. In this engaging book, Deborah Alun-Jones goes inside the rectory to explore the lives of writers and poets who were either the children of clergy – such as Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Dorothy L. Sayers and Edmund de Waal – or who, as in the case of Rupert Brooke and John Betjeman, have been seduced by the romance, seclusion and enduring values that these properties embody. The story is sometimes one of overcoming adversity, whether it was exile in a Yorkshire rectory for the London wit and essayist Sydney Smith in the early 1800s; struggling with a bitter and melancholic father for Alfred Tennyson and his siblings; or seeking his vocation in the Welsh hills for the poet-rector R. S. Thomas. For others, it has been a question of entering a world where literary voices still resound, such as Vikram Seth at the Old Rectory in Bemerton, near Salisbury, where the seventeenth-century poet George Herbert lived, or Edmund de Waal and his brothers growing up in the 1970s in the Chancery at Lincoln, home to the prodigiously creative Benson family a century earlier. The stories from the rectory are often heart-warming and fit a romantic image of a golden age, with amateur theatricals, games of tennis and picnics on the lawn; but Deborah Alun-Jones reveals that the serene exterior often belied the tensions within – the very tensions that have produced some of the greatest writers and poets in the English language. 75 illustrations, 12 in colour 22.9 x 15.2cm 208pp ISBN 978 0 500 516775 March £18.95 A timeless series, relaunched for the 21st century, that offers the perfect introduction to the tantalizing mysteries of the world’s great esoteric traditions.

Sophie D. Coe and Michael D. Coe A richly detailed and illustrated investigation into the story of the world’s favourite food, now in its third edition Chocolate – ‘the food of the gods’ – has had a long and eventful history. Its story is expertly told here by the doyen of Maya studies, Michael Coe, and his late wife, Sophie. The book begins 3,000 years ago in the Mexican jungles and goes on to draw on aspects of archaeology, botany and socioeconomics. Used as currency and traded by the Aztecs, chocolate arrived in Europe via the conquistadors, and was soon a favourite drink with aristocrats. By the 19th century and industrialization, chocolate became a food for the masses – until its revival in our own time as a luxury item. The third edition of this classic book includes some tantalizing new data on the first cultivation of the cacao tree in the northwest Amazon, and the discovery of the chocolate process in southern Mesoamerica, long before the rise of the Olmecs. Chocolate has also been giving up some of its secrets to modern neuroscientists, who have been investigating how flavour perception is mediated by the human brain. And, finally, the book closes with two contemporary accounts of how chocolate manufacturers have (or have not) been dealing with the ethical side of the industry. 99 illustrations, 14 in colour 23.2 x 15.5cm 280pp paperback ISBN 978 0 500 290682 June £14.95 48 Archaeology & History ‘An ideal introduction to one of the world’s great classical sites’ The Sunday Times The Complete Pompeii New in paperback Joanne Berry Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the British Museum, an essential account of Pompeii, the world’s bestpreserved ancient city ‘A triumph, a must for everyone interested in the most famous site of the ancient world.

P. Mallory J. P. Mallory is a world expert on the interconnection of archaeology and linguistics and is the author of the standard work In Search of the Indo-Europeans, also published by Thames & Hudson. He is Emeritus Professor of Prehistoric Archaeology at Queen’s University Belfast and a member of the Royal Irish Academy. The first major attempt in nearly a century to address the core issues of how the Irish people came into being About 80,000,000 people today can trace their descent back to the first occupants of Ireland. But where did these occupants themselves come from – and what do we even mean by ‘Irish’ in the first place? Written as an engrossing detective story, this authoritative and brilliantly argued book emphasizes that the Irish are a product of multiple influences that can only be tracked by employing the varied disciplines of archaeology, genetics, geology, linguistics and mythology. Beginning with the geological collision that fused the two halves of Ireland together, the author then traces the origins of the first farmers and their monumental impact, followed by an exploration of how metallurgists brought the country into increasingly wider orbits of European culture. Traditional explanations of Irish prehistory are assessed in the light of the very latest genetic research into the biological origins of the Irish. The author also tackles the vexed question of the Celts and the sources of the Irish language. Illustrated with numerous informative line drawings and maps, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in Ireland and the Irish.

Christine Kinealy is an Irish historian, whose ﬁrst book, This Great Calamity: The Irish Famine 1845–52, was published to great controversy and acclaim. A Photohistory Sean Sexton and Christine Kinealy Ireland in the first century of photography: a photohistorian’s treasure trove The first Irish photographs date from 1840, a year after Louis Daguerre announced to the world his discovery of the photographic process. In the century that followed, Ireland was to know tragedy and triumph, bitter struggle and agonized compromise. The Great Famine was to kill over a million Irish poor between 1846 and 1851, and force an even greater number to flee the horrors of their homeland. In the following decades, political life was dominated by the struggle for Home Rule. Yet these images do much more than tell a gripping political story. They evoke the grandeur and complacency of life in the Big House, home and symbol of the Anglo-Irish elite. They reveal the hard labour of rural survival: cutting peat for fuel, fishing, gathering seaweed and tilling the soil, against the magnificence of the Irish landscape. And they show the transforming impact of modernity, as industry, railways and urban expansion slowly brought Ireland into a new era. This is engrossing visual history, not just for Irish families worldwide, but for the people of every nation. 271 illustrations 21.5 x 20.6cm 224pp paperback ISBN 978 0 500 290798 March £12.95 54 History ‘An enthralling visual history that brings the country to life’ Scottish Field The Scots New in paperback | Compact Edition Murray MacKinnon’s long love affair with photography and what it reveals about his native Scotland goes back over forty years to his ﬁrst purchase of a vintage camera and photo album in a Glasgow auction room. Richard Oram’s books include Scotland’s Kings and Queens. He is Professor and Deputy Head of the School of Arts, University of Stirling. A Photohistory Murray MacKinnon and Richard Oram Documents a century of profound contrasts, of division, upheaval and change that recast forever Scotland’s character The craze for photography ripped through Scotland like a whirlwind following its invention in 1839. Over the next century, Scottish photographers captured a remarkable visual record of their land and its people, their mixed fortunes, hopes and aspirations. Here are the triumphs of self-confident Scotland – the completion of the Forth Bridge and shipbuilders on the Clyde – but also its injustices, the story of the rural and urban poor, and the Clearances that drove people from the land to seek work in the cities or new hope in emigration to the New World. Highlanders drinking whisky from enamel buckets in 1890; the caves of Staffa and their associations with the mythical Celtic hero, Fingal; the grandeur of Edinburgh Castle; a portrait of John Logie Baird; the golfers of Scotscraig; settlers overseas in Colorado; or salmon-netting on the River Oykel – this enthralling visual history brings the country to life not only for everyone of Scottish descent, but equally for everyone who has enjoyed the rich character and landscape of this beguiling nation.

Veronica Buckley is the author of Queen Christina: The Restless Life of a European Eccentric and Madame de Maintenon. A captivating portrait of pre-revolutionary Russia Twilight of the Romanovs opens a door onto the world of Imperial Russia in original photographs taken during the last decades of Romanov rule, many in colour created using an early three-colour-plate technique that brings the remote past to life with an especially vivid jolt. These images are snapshots of a vanished world. The Russian Empire was soon to be destroyed, and, in the ensuing blood-soaked decades, rendered unrecognizable. Yet these images reveal a surprising continuity: despite the subsequent cataclysm, faces, postures, buildings and landscapes still resonate with those who see them a century and more later. Our companions on this journey include the Scottish photographer William Carrick, Americans George Kennan and Murray Howe, the German– Russian Carl Bulla, the photographer Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky, the writer Leonid Andreyev and even Anton Chekhov, together with many anonymous others. Through their eyes we discover a world of exceptional diversity, seemingly timeless, almost archaic, marked by persistent poverty, yet also abundantly rich and often surprisingly modern. 360 illustrations, 114 in colour 29.0 x 24.0cm 240pp ISBN 978 0 500 516683 March £34.95 56 History Are We Being Watched? The Search for Life in the Cosmos Paul Murdin Paul Murdin has been President of the European Astronomical Society, Director of Science in the British National Space Centre and Treasurer of the Royal Astronomical Society. In 1971, he discovered the ﬁrst black hole in our Galaxy. He is the author of a number of books on astronomy, including Secrets of the Universe, also published by Thames & Hudson. One of the world’s most eminent astronomers surveys the latest thinking surrounding one of the biggest questions known to humanity: are we really alone in the universe? How did complex life arise on Earth? Might it have developed on other planets? What forms could it take? How likely are we to make contact with aliens? How could we communicate with them? In this absorbing book, the distinguished astronomer Paul Murdin invites readers to join him in exploring the huge array of evidence we must consider to determine if there is life in the stars. Murdin describes the habitats that exist on alien worlds, and examines the colour photographs that show conditions on Mars and elsewhere in the Solar System. His argument is grounded in the most recent research, including the theory that the Cosmos is chaotic: our planet is the chance outcome of unpredictable forces interacting over great lengths of time. In Are We Being Watched?, Murdin makes cutting-edge astronomical thinking accessible and captivating to anyone who has wondered whether there is life beyond the Earth. 36 illustrations, 29 in colour 22.9 x 15.2cm 224pp ISBN 978 0 500 516713 February £16.95 Science & the Environment 57 Includes contributions from: Sir Edmund Hillary Sir Chris Bonington Kenton Cool Peter Hillary Tom Hornbein Reinhold Messner Colin Monteath Jan Morris Norbu Tenzing Norgay Doug Scott Stephen Venables 58 History | Exploration The Conquest of Everest Original Photographs from the Legendary First Ascent George Lowe and Huw Lewis-Jones George Lowe – explorer, mountaineer, photographer and ﬁlmmaker – is the last surviving member of the 1953 British Everest Expedition.

A major reconsideration of the work of Bill Brandt, the artist who defined the potential of photographic modernism Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light is the first full-scale examination of Brandt’s oeuvre to trace a coherent trajectory across the photographer’s multifaceted career. With rich duotone reproductions made from the finest of the photographer’s vintage prints, this book lays out Brandt’s career in ‘all its unruly splendour’, as Sarah Hermanson Meister writes in her introductory essay. Meister’s fresh scholarship and keen attention to the chronological developments of Brandt’s career – including, for the first time, an analysis of the dramatic evolution of Brandt’s printing techniques – shed new light on an artist long considered an enigma by art historians. A comprehensive survey of the work Brandt published during World War II in a number of popular illustrated magazines reveals the origins of some of his most remarkable postwar work, while a technical examination of the photographer’s often painstaking retouching techniques, accompanied by detailed illustrations, offers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the process that was critical to the ultimate impact of Brandt’s photographs.

Albert Lim is an architectural photographer based in Singapore whose images have been published worldwide. A comprehensive survey of Ernesto Bedmar’s award-winning villa, The Jiva Puri, which has taken Balinese design precepts and updated them for the 21st century Perched on the spectacular southwest coast of Bali sits Ernesto Bedmar’s long-awaited first project on the island that has so inspired his successful career, the exquisitely designed, award-winning villa, The Jiva Puri. ‘Jiva’ in Hindu religious texts denotes the immortal essence of a living organism or being, while the Sanskrit ‘Puri’ refers to a place or large dwelling. Although highly contemporary in expression, the villa’s design is intrinsically linked to the built history of the island and shows a deep understanding of traditional Balinese architectural concepts and their relationship to the landscape. With a foreword by Darlene Smyth that puts The Jiva Puri into context, sumptuous photography by Albert Lim that takes the reader on a detailed tour of every pavilion, and comprehensive plans, elevations and details, this monograph gives a fully rounded view of a villa complex that has set new standards of subtle architectural brilliance on the island.

They are both professors of architecture at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Their previous books include The Autonomous House, Green Architecture, The New Autonomous House and Time to Eat the Dog, all published by Thames & Hudson. A novel view of architecture explored through the enduring delights of children’s construction toys This entertaining book offers an intriguing new perspective on the history of modern architecture. Brenda and Robert Vale discover a host of connections linking the model-building sets of the modern period with architectural movements, social history, and national identities and myths. They investigate not only how model sets have reflected different building styles, but also whether the toys themselves influenced the subsequent careers of the children who grew up playing with them. Some construction toys have looked to the past – Richter’s Blocks, Lincoln Logs and Tudor Minibrix, for example. Others have looked to the future: as early as the 1920s, the American metal toy Bilt-E-Z could be used to construct the iconic stepped-back skyscraper, like the Empire State building in New York. Later, the British Arkitex and its American forerunner Girder and Panel mirrored the steel-framed glass towers of the modern era. The Vales show how the prefabricated engineered aesthetic of Meccano does seem to have influenced some notable architects. They draw out novel connections between model-railway buildings and modernism; model sets such as Castos and reinforced concrete housing; and even between the creative but slightly surreal Playplax and postmodern deconstructivist architecture. Informative, opinionated and ranging across more than a century of architectural trends, this book imparts an infectious nostalgia for these wonderful toys, many of them vintage classics. 111 illustrations, 97 in colour 22.9 x 15.2cm 208pp ISBN 978 0 500 342855 June £19.95 George Daniels In association with Omega Michael Clerizo is the author of Masters of Contemporary Watchmaking and was a close friend of George Daniels. He is noted for his in-depth analysis of bespoke luxury products for the Wall Street Journal and specialist watch magazines. A Master Watchmaker & His Art Michael Clerizo An original and sensitive biography of the most important watchmaker of the 20th and early 21st century George Daniels (1926–2011) was born into a poor family and endured a childhood of parental neglect and abuse, yet rose to become a renowned horological artist who created exquisite watches. Daniels’s bulldog spirit is present on every page but especially in the chapters covering the story of his most significant invention: the co-axial escapement. The unflinching belief Daniels had in the superiority of the co-axial sustained him through nearly twenty years of ridicule and rejection before the escapement was adopted by Omega, one of the most famous Swiss watch brands. In his lifetime, Daniels produced only twenty-five watches. When brought together for a retrospective exhibition in 2006 at Sotheby’s London, they were estimated to have a combined value of over £5,000,000. This book was produced with the close collaboration of Daniels. Brilliant colour photography reveals his precious watches in minute detail. The book also features previously unseen archival imagery, including Daniels’s own photographs and sketches. 240 illustrations, 138 in colour 29.5 x 29.5cm 208pp, inc 4 6-page gatefolds ISBN 978 0 500 516362 March £75.00 78 Decorative Arts Treasures of the Habsburgs Edited by Sabine Haag and Franz Kirchweger Sabine Haag has been the General Director of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna since 2009. Franz Kirchweger is a curator at the same institution. Surveys the magnificent Habsburg collections housed in Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum The House of Habsburg was one of the wealthiest dynasties in Europe, and many of its members were also great collectors and patrons of the arts.

This book features around 150 of the masterpieces from the Habsburg collections, ranging from sublime works of sculpture and fine metalwork to exotic objects fashioned from ostrich eggs, nautilus shells, rhinoceros horns and shark’s teeth. Alongside the Saliera, Benvenuto Cellini’s famous golden salt cellar, and the High Gothic sculpture known as the Krumau Madonna, are subtly delicate works carved from ivory, gorgeous tapestries and mechanical marvels. The emperors, princes and archdukes who shaped these collections wanted not only to create a sense of wonder in all who gazed upon them but also to symbolize their own dominion over the world. Filled with lavish photographs and fascinating insights, this is a worthy tribute to the Habsburgs and their lasting artistic legacy.

The new trends in earring design and craftsmanship explored through myriad ingenious styles, forms and concepts A new wave of designers and artisans are creating earrings that push the boundaries of jewelry design. Drawing on unique sources of inspiration to incorporate symbol and meaning, they are redefining the earring as more than a mere ornamental piece. This book showcases a stunning collection of the innovative work of jewelry designers from around the world, drawing together a variety of creative approaches and methods. Employing an array of materials, the models on show range from the traditional – many displaying tribal inspiration – to more complex, cutting-edge pieces. All of the jewelry featured is notable for its boldness, whether in terms of dimension, colour or composition, its exuberance or the choice of materials. Whatever the materials chosen, it is the design that shines through. The miscellaneous approaches shown in this book highlight the copious and constantly renewed creative potential offered by earrings.

Elegance is refusal’ ‘Pink is the navy blue of India’ ‘The bikini is the most important thing since the atom bomb’ Diana Vreeland Empress of Fashion Amanda Mackenzie Stuart Amanda Mackenzie Stuart worked as a screenwriter and independent ﬁlm producer for a number of years before publishing her ﬁrst biography, the critically acclaimed Consuelo and Alva Vanderbilt: The Story of a Daughter and Mother in the Gilded Age. The first full biography of the legendary ‘Empress of fashion’ Described by an admirer as ‘the High Druidess of fashion, the Supreme Pontiff, Perpetual Curate and Archpresbyter of elegance, the Vicaress of Style’, Diana Vreeland is the cloth from which twenty-first-century fashion editors are cut. Diana joined Harper’s Bazaar in 1936, where her pizzazz and singular point of view quickly made her a major creative force in fashion. During her time at Harper’s Bazaar and later as the editor-in-chief of Vogue, the self-styled ‘Empress of fashion’ launched Twiggy’s career, advised Jackie Kennedy, and enjoyed the full swing of sixties’ London. In Diana’s Vogue, women were encouraged to resist fashion orders from on high, and to use their own imaginations in re-creating themselves – much as Vreeland spent her own life doing. In this book, Amanda Mackenzie Stuart portrays a visionary: a fearless innovator who inspired designers, models, photographers and artists. Diana Vreeland reinvented the way we think about style and where we go to find it. As an editor, curator and wit, she made a lasting mark and remains an icon for generations of fashion lovers.

Thames & Hudson published his previous book, Face Hunter, in 2010. More than just a sequel, this new book from Face Hunter shows how he is taking street-style blogging to an entirely new level ‘It’s not about fashion people inspiring fashion people anymore – it’s about real life inspiring real people, all over the world!’ This fresh collection of photographs follows Face Hunter (the alter ego of fashion blogger Yvan Rodic) through more than thirty of his favourite cities, on a typical year-long travelling session around the world, in which he covers 432,044 km, visits on average two or three different countries a week and circles the globe more than ten times. Showcasing his new approach to street style (‘something more like a cultural explorer’), Rodic increasingly finds as much creative inspiration in the urban surroundings and local culture as in street fashion itself. With excellent global coverage, both from the world’s established fashion capitals – London, New York, Paris, Milan – and Face Hunter’s favourite styles cities – Reykjavík, Moscow, Sydney, São Paulo, Batumi and beyond – this is an engaging visual travel diary of people-watching, partying and urban exploration, and a fitting celebration of Rodic’s refreshing, democratic and intensely individual approach to fashion.

Their appeal lies in the simplicity, minimalism, attention to detail and high quality of materials so iconic in Scandinavian design, as well as in the sustainable and ethical production methods espoused.

She is the author of Shoes: A Celebration of Pumps, Sandals, Slippers & More and Brilliant: White in Design. An engaging exploration of one of the most ubiquitous and perennially appealing patterns in the world: stripes Stripes are everywhere: on clothes, from elaborate woven textiles to the iconic Breton T-shirt to sharp pin-striped suits; in art, from the earliest cave paintings to vibrant op art canvases; and in industrial design, from World War II-era dazzle battleships to the bar code. This book is a rollicking visual feast of stripes in all their permutations, with a text – by turns witty and weighty – that shows how these potent, sometimes charged symbols have on occasion changed the course of world history. Eight chapters look at stripes in all their manifestations, from diabolical to decorative, historic to postmodern, creating a wonderfully varied visual collage that shows how design-savvy people throughout the ages and recent design stars, including Jonathan Adler, Geoffrey Beene, Jean Paul Gaultier, Josef Hoffmann, Sol LeWitt, Todd Oldham, Alberto Pinto, Giò Ponti, Karim Rashid, David Rockwell, Carolyne Roehm, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood, have incorporated stripes into their work and daily lives.
