Taking examples from all media and genres, this comprehensive book, now available in paperback, explores this emotionally powerful and geographically pervasive style, tracing its development from Rome, centre of papal and princely power. Carefully selected and rarely seen objects from public and private collections illustrate traditions of ornament, performance and visual art, while stunning spreads examine how churches and palaces became showcases for the pomp and splendour of Baroque art. Michael Snodin is Head of the Strawberry Hill Trust and was previously Senior Research Fellow at the V&A.

Voysey Karen Livingstone Designers Box-set Stunningly repackaged in a limited edition box-set, some of the most popular V&A Pattern series titles – William Morris, Walter Crane and Owen Jones – are accompanied by a new title that celebrates the innovative and inspirational work of C.F.A. Voysey (1857–1941). Voysey was an architect who produced a prolific range of pattern designs over a career that spanned 50 years.

Hari Kunzru has conjured a dark vision of a future in which not just books but remembering itself is banned and a small group of renegade memorialists is all that stands in the face of total oblivion. From the point of view of one of their incarcerated members, Memory Palace takes us through his fragmented memories as he lies trapped in his cell, clinging to the belief that without memory civilization is doomed. An essay by the exhibition’s curators, Laurie Britton Newell and Ligaya Salazar, unpicks the intentions and process behind this innovative project, while specially commissioned work by Robert Frank Hunter and drawings from the exhibition’s collaborators illustrate the book. Hari Kunzru is the author of the novels The Impressionist (2002), Transmission (2004), My Revolutions (2007) and Gods Without Men (2011). His work has been translated into 21 languages and won him prizes including the Somerset Maugham Award, the Betty Trask Prize and a British Book Award. Laurie Britton Newell and Ligaya Salazar are curators of Contemporary Programmes at the V&A.

From the late 1950s Bawden used linoleum as an alternative to traditional ink and paper drawing, and the practice did much to further his unique, graphic style. The cuts in this selection illustrate a wide range of activities and characters from history and fairytales. From London monuments, to lions and tigers, to princesses and knights, there is something for everyone. Edward Bawden (1903–1989) was born in Essex and studied at the School of Art in Cambridge and the Royal College of Art, where he was taught by Paul Nash. As well as linocuts and landscape paintings, Bawden worked on book illustrations and commercial graphics. During the Second World War he served as an Official War Artist.

GRINLING GIBBONS And the Art of Carving David Esterly Grinling Gibbons (1648–1721), the greatest of decorative woodcarvers, is seen in this study through the eyes of a fellow carver. His flamboyant cascades of lifelike blossoms, fruits, foliage, birds and fish dominated English interiors of the late seventeenth century – in royal palaces, churches and cathedrals, and great country houses. David Esterly’s first-hand experience of limewood foliage carving gives him unprecedented insight into Gibbons’s method and technique. Unique photographs illustrate these procedures, while spectacular interior shots show the carving in its original setting. Tools, workshop practice, materials and finishes are also discussed in detail. David Esterly is a professional limewood foliage carver in the Gibbons tradition, who played a key role in restoration work at Hampton Court Palace following the disastrous fire of 1986. He curated the V&A exhibition Grinling Gibbons and the Art of Carving (1998) and is the author of The Lost Carving (2012).

Highlighting the decade’s extraordinarily creative interaction between fashion and popular music, the book shows how both catwalk and club fashions were interpreted for a wider audience through the striking photography and innovative graphic designs of key magazines. 80s Fashion includes interviews and original archive material from practitioners such as Wendy Dagworthy and Paul Smith that casts new light on the designs of the decade.

The social season of debutante parties and private balls, weddings and charity events has long provided Britain’s fashion designers with opportunities to design elaborate, tour de force eveningwear. In more recent years the ballroom has been replaced by the red carpet. Though the context has changed, the ballgown remains a staple in many designers’ collections and continues to serve as an expression of status, protocol and taste, while simultaneously embodying elements of drama and fantasy. Sonnet Stanfill is curator of twentieth-century and contemporary fashion at the V&A. She curated the displays Ossie Clark (2003) and New York Fashion Now (2007). Oriole Cullen is curator of modern textiles and fashion at the V&A.

This book draws together a wide selection of beautiful pieces, originating from across the continent – from Iceland in the north to Cyprus off the shores of Asia – to demonstrate the wonderful variety of this jewellery. Spectacular examples include gilded Norwegian wedding crowns and extravagant golden crosses of Normandy, ornate earrings of Spain and Italy, and imposing filigree clasps from the Balkans. The book illustrates how the jewellery was originally worn with traditional dress, and explores its popularity in the nineteenth century. Jane Perry is a visiting scholar at the V&A, involved in cataloguing and studying its extensive collection of European traditional jewellery. She has written many articles on aspects of nineteenth-century jewellery and is the author of A Collector’s Guide to Peasant Silver Buttons (2007).

The essays cover a range of sculptural materials and forms to cast fresh light on the artists, their creative and collaborative processes, and those who commissioned, owned and responded to their work. The papers were originally presented at a two-day conference at the V&A in November 2010 as part of the Robert H. Smith Renaissance Sculpture Programme. Peta Motture is Senior Curator of Sculpture at the Victoria and Albert Museum. She has published widely on medieval and later sculpture and co-curated several exhibitions.
