Stones From the Inside Rare and Unseen Images Bill Wyman As soon as Bill Wyman was given a camera as a young boy, he quickly developed a passion for photography. After joining what would become the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band, Wyman continued his hobby. When he didn’t have his bass, he had his camera. The result is an arresting, insightful and often poignant collection of photographs, showing his exclusive inside view of the band. Along with the images of the band at work and play, Wyman includes remarkable images of those along for the ride, from John Lennon, Eric Clapton, David Bowie and Iggy Pop to John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.

Chiparus Master of Art Deco Alberto Shayo This new and updated edition of a classic reference work adds new figures as well as historic documents. Of particular interest is the discovery of the long-lost marble figure Polar Bear last seen over 75 years ago in Paris, where it was exhibited for the first and last time at the 1943 Salon des Artistes Français. Accompanying images of this important discovery are presented in this edition for the very first time. Over 26 years ago the first publication of Chiparus: Master of Art Deco brought this artist into the public eye. His name, lost in records and catalogues, was rejuvenated by Alberto Shayo’s rediscovery of his works, effectively bringing artist and oeuvre back to life.

Louis XIII Cognac’s Thesaurus Edited by Karen Howes, preface by John Malkovich First exhibited at the Exposition Universelle (Paris, 1900) LOUIS XIII has embodied sophistication for over a century. Each bottle is a unique work of art, from the decanter – each of which requires eleven craftsmen to blow the crystal, apply the ornamentation and wrap the 20-K gold collar around its slender neck – to the cognac itself. Composed of up to 1200 eaux-de-vie from the first cru of the Cognac region, Grande Champagne, LOUIS XIII balances notes of myrrh, honey, dried roses, plum, honeysuckle, cigar boxes, leather, figs and passion fruit in an unmatched, ambrosial blend.
The book dwells on the sources and inspiration of the Art Deco movement, with particular emphasis on sculptures created by Demétre Chiparus.
The International ARC Salon Competition is the largest and most prestigious for realist based art in the world, receiving this year over 4,300 entries from 73 countries and spanning six continents. The 1,525 works featured here represent over 35% of the total. This year’s winners demonstrate the great breadth and originality that can be found in all facets of fine art.
Tracing the history of the iconic decanter from the pewter flask found after the Battle of Jarnac to the inspired glass vessels that captivated the royal courts of Europe, Louis XIII Cognac’s Thesaurus promises an elegant and entertaining glimpse into this prestigious cognac and the characters who drank it.

Nothing Has Changed Portraits of the US Larry Niehues & Andrew Pogany. Foreword by Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) “I’m proud to say I’m from the USA because I’ve really seen it with my own eyes - all the beauty and the destruction, the tradition and the innovation, the loud cities and the quiet little spaces.” - Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys). Larry Niehues, a French-born photographer who lives in the United States, travelled around the country for 5 years photographing modern day America while seeking out the continuing presence of a timeless post-war ‘old America’.

“African Art is Life. It is dark matter - invisible, omnipresent, unattainable, and uncontainable. In our global culture, Africa’s eclectic influence is ubiquitous. African art (and life) is at the epicenter of modernity and its impact on Western society is copious.” - Hank Willis Thomas 19
Cuba. Vivir Con Carolina Sandretto
Douglas Kirkland Edited by Silvana Editoriale
Cuba has been living under the American embargo for the last 64 years. The living conditions due to the embargo are extremely difficult. The regime provides for education and food but people are obliged to live in the same houses as their families as they are not allowed and do not have the means to buy or construct new ones.
Douglas Kirkland is the legendary photographer who captured the Hollywood elite. Kirkland has been at the cutting edge of fashion, photojournalism and portraiture, working for the world’s most reputable magazines for more than 50 years.
During the last 6 decades people took over old houses once belonging to people now gone or deceased and transformed them into Solar. A Solar is a multifamily and multicultural entity that represents the layers and the complexity of the contemporary Cuban society. Often inhabited by as many as 30 different families, Solar houses, in small tiny apartments that were once rooms, a variety of people. Through a series of portraits executed with a medium format camera the photographer documents Solar, focussing on the inhabitants and their living spaces.

Lucien Hervé White Spain and Black Spain Iñaki Bergera Lucien Hervé (1910-2007) was one of the great architectural photographers of the 20th century. His methodological and conceptual patterns were reflected in his work, which includes a long collaboration with Le Corbusier. In 1958 he launched the project for a photobook on the monastery of El Escorial commissioned by the RM publishing house in Barcelona, and a year later, during a trip around Spain, a second commission on popular Mediterranean architecture arose. Although they remained unpublished, both works were the object of constant revision by the photographer throughout his life. Sixty years later, both photobooks are published, preceded by specialised texts by architects Javier Mosteiro and Marco Iuliano. The publication is completed by a volume in which Iñaki Bergera and art historian Horacio Fernández offer us an overview of the artist’s life and investigate the relationship between these two projects.
