Jerry Schatzberg Contributions by Jonathan Lethem

n Jerry

Schatzberg’s iconic mid1960s photographs of Bob Dylan at a pinnacle point in his career


n 1965 Jerry Schatzberg was photographing a job and had some fortuitous company. Famed music journalist Al Aronowitz and disc jockey Scott Ross were discussing Dylan and a recent performance they had seen. Half listening he volunteered that he’d like to photograph the singer. The very next day Dylan’s new wife (a friend of Schatzberg’s) called and gave him an invitation to the studio where Dylan was currently recording ‘Highway 61 Revisited’. Schatzberg set off immediately, exactly six days after the Newport Folk Festival where Dylan ‘went electric’ and was collectively booed. Schatzberg received a warm welcome from the singer and the images that emerged from that day make obvious the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere that was already brewing between them. Working and socialising together, Schatzberg would do nine more photo shoots with Dylan from 1965-6, arguably the singer’s most creative period, and capture the (now) Nobel laureate during one of the pivotal moments in music history. Each session says something different about Dylan and manages to perfectly capture the many facets of one of the most unique, complex and mysterious individuals of all time.

Norman Parkinson’s celebrated images of The Beatles at the start of their career


The Beatles

By Norman Parkinson London, 1963 Norman Parkinson


n the morning of Thursday, September 12, 1963, noted fashion photographer Norman Parkinson was to photograph a young pop group from Liverpool. Earlier that year, the band had exploded onto the scene – releasing the first of eleven (out of twelve) studio albums that would reach number one on the charts. That band was The Beatles. The album had been ‘Please Please Me’, it was still number one and it would stay at number one for thirty weeks. Parkinson, already established as Britain’s most famous photographer, had a date with its new greatest band. Revealing, insightful and funny this collection of photos captures The Beatles near the start of their spectacular career. Their creativity is plain to see in these photos which have become some of the most important in the extensive Beatles catalogue. Now, ACC Editions, in collaboration with The Norman Parkinson Archive and Iconic Images, presents this historic meeting between a new music group and one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. Covering nearly 30 rolls of film, these images of The Beatles at the President Hotel in Bloomsbury and famed Abbey Road Studios, offer a rare insight of the making of an iconic band.

Tom Murray’s Mad Day Out

Tom Murray, Paul Skellett, and Simon Weitzman n An

important collection of what many believe to be the best colour photographs of the Beatles


hen the acclaimed photographer Tom Murray, was invited to tag along on an early morning photo shoot in 1968, he had no idea what he would be walking into. He opened the studio door to find Paul, George, Ringo, and John with Yoko Ono. Over the course of a frantic day, rushing around London from one publicity shoot to the next, Tom, the youngest photographer present, caught some of the most iconic colour photographs ever taken of The Beatles. The following day, The Beatles went on to record “Hey Jude”. Having arrived with only two rolls of film, Tom selected the 23 images he considered best. These were exhibited in 1998 after almost 30 years in storage, where many acclaimed them as the very best colour photos of the band. Now, two decades later, these photographs are back together, gathered in a volume no fan would want to be without.

Rare and Unseen Terry O’Neill


erry O’Neill is one of the greatest living photographers today, with work displayed and exhibited at first-class museums and fine-art galleries worldwide. His iconic images of Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Brigitte Bardot, Faye Dunaway, and David Bowie – to name but a few – are instantly recognisable. Now, for the first time, O’Neill selects a range of images from his extensive archive of “vintage prints”, which will surprise and delight collectors and photography lovers alike. Long before the age of digital, photographers would send physical prints to the papers and magazines. These prints were passed around, handled by many, stamped on the back, and often times captioned. After use, the prints were either filed away, thrown out or – for the lucky few – sent back to the photographer or their photo agencies. This book collects hundreds of these rare images, a true must for Terry’s fans and photography collectors.

The Perfect Penguin

Sue Flood, foreword by Michael Palin


mperor: The Perfect Penguin is a celebration of one of the world’s most charismatic creatures. In temperatures that can reach -50°C with 150km/h winds, the emperor penguins’ ability to survive and thrive is nothing short of astounding. Over the past nine years, award-winning photographer Sue Flood has journeyed to remote Antarctic penguin colonies to capture the birds in their native home. Sue Flood’s respect for her subjects emanates from every page. From the poignant sight of an egg abandoned on the sea ice, to majestic shots of emperor penguins returning from the sea and heartwarming photos of chicks clustering together for warmth, every shot explores a new angle of life in this remote and ice-crusted world. As well as following the difficult journey of the penguins across the sea ice, Emperor: The Perfect Penguin narrates the hardships that must be endured to catch the perfect photograph. Sue’s behind-thescenes experiences prove that it is only with patience, endurance, and several thermal layers that one can capture magical moments on Earth’s most inhospitable continent.

Stephan Vanfleteren


ith Surf Tribe, photographer Stephan Vanfleteren shows that there is far more to surf culture than just sport and competition. Surfing is also about a deep admiration and respect for the ocean, as well as the feeling of insignificance when confronted with the forces of nature. Surfers use the waves for fun, but also to forget and to battle, both with others and with themselves. Vanfleteren looks beyond the traditional borders of the United States and Australia and searches the globe for people who live in places where sea and land meet. He documents a fluid community, with nature as its sole leader. He has sought out young talent, living icons, and old legends, both competitive and free surfers. The photographs here are serene black and white portraits in Vanfleteren’s wellknown, haunting style; as always, he reaches below the surface and goes to the core of his subjects. Included, amongst many others, are Kelly Slater, Gerry Lopez, John Florence, Mickey Munoz, Filipe Toledo and Stephanie Gilmore. Surfer, journalist, and actor Gerry Lopez has contributed the Foreword.

Yet the events of 1948 are remembered very differently by the Palestinian people, who to this day carry the memory of the Naqba, the displacement of an estimated 750,000 Palestinians from their territories during the 1948 Palestine war. Unresolved is the most recent photoessay by renowned Swiss documentary photographer Meinrad Schade. A continuation of his ‘War Without War’ project, in which Schade documented the lingering, damaging marks of war on the former Soviet Union, Unresolved explores the obvious traces of conflict and the scars it leaves on both the people and landscapes in Israel, the West Bank, the Golan Heights, and the Gaza Strip.

n 2018 the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, will host exhibitions on two of the greatest artists of the 20th century – Egon Schiele and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Both exhibitions will have the same curator, and will be held at the same time. The shows will illustrate exactly what it is that linked the two artists: line, and the use of expressive force. In Schiele’s work the evolution of his unique, idiosyncratic uses of line provides a visceral element of expression that allows the viewer to trace his artistic development over the course of distinctive periods within his body of work. This, the catalogue of the Egon Schiele exhibition, concentrates on themes of the body and portraits, through drawings and watercolours, showcasing Schiele’s incredible expressive force.

his, the catalogue of the Basquiat exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, brings together 100 of the artist’s most important masterpieces, sourced from international museums and private collections. With the astonishing radicalness of his artistic practice, Basquiat renewed the concept of art with enduring impact. This Basquiat retrospective centres on the idea of Basquiat’s unique energetic line, his use of words, symbols, and how he integrates collage in his paintings, sculptures, objects, and large-scale drawings. The catalogue includes texts by great authors, including Paul Schimmel who tells of his meeting with Basquiat in California; Francesco Pellizi who knew Basquiat well and has not written about him for a long time; and Okwui Enwezor who talks about Basquiat in the context of African American identity.

Klimt’s and Egon Schiele’s sensuous and often explicit drawings are brought together in a beautifully presented volume


ustav Klimt (1862-1918) and his younger protégé Egon Schiele (1890-1918) are considered two of the greatest figures of Austrian Modernism. Whether competing with or inspiring one another, together they reconfigured the way the human body was translated into art. Although both artists are primarily remembered as painters, between them they left 7,000 drawings, many of the greatest of which are now in the collection of the Albertina Museum, Vienna. In 2018 an exhibition opens in London of both artists’ drawings from the Albertina. This stunning publication records these precious works, which are very rarely displayed and almost never travel, in all their erotic, intriguing and sometimes disturbing beauty. Leading experts on the period provide authoritative texts that illuminate the important relationship between the two artists. They analyse the role of drawing in their practice and chart the response of early twentieth-century Vienna to their electrifying work, which still has the power to shock and enthral to this day.

n 2015 Barbara Rae travelled to Greenland on the trail of her namesake and fellow Scot, the surgeon and explorer Dr John Rae (1813-1893). Captivated by the ‘wild sort of life’, he travelled to the Arctic in 1846, learning local languages and survival techniques. His enlightened co-operation and collaboration with the Inuit – almost unheard of at the time – allowed him to discover the fate of Sir John Franklin’s lost 1845 expedition, and to confirm the existence of the Northwest Passage, the maritime link between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This book is the artistic result of Barbara Rae’s extraordinary journey. Through the artist’s deft handling of colour and line the frozen landscape of the Arctic jumps into life from the page. This special publication takes the reader on a journey of discovery from Scotland to the Arctic, and back again. Her vivid images are combined with insightful texts from authors including the Inuit leader and advocate Tagak Curley, the architect Ian Ritchie and the celebrated playwright Duncan Macmillan, as well as contributions from the artist herself.

Bob and Roberta Smith: The Secret to a Good Life Bob and Roberta Smith


hen Bob and Roberta Smith – pseudonym of the artist Patrick Brill – was elected a Royal Academician in 2013, he had a more complex relationship with the Royal Academy than most. He remembers well the feeling of suspense as his parents, both artists, waited to hear whether their submissions had been accepted for the annual Summer Exhibition. The outcome brought jubilation or despair, but rarely to both, which led to its problems. In The Secret to a Good Life, Bob and Roberta Smith introduces his mother, Deirdre Borlase, and her encounters with the often sexist and class-ridden art establishment of post-war Britain. Her story has led her son to ruminate on drawing, politics and the challenge that art can pose to authority. In the colourful signwriting style for which he is best known, the artist tells a poignant and political family story. In the end, it is Deirdre who provides the answer to the question: what is the secret to a good life?

Cornelia Parker Margaret Iversen & Sheena Wagstaff


n September 2018 Cornelia Parker’s Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) lands in the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Arts, London. This meticulous and unsettling installation – first shown on the roof of The Metropolitan Museum of Art – is half stage set, half sculpture. The work, which draws on archetypal images of American culture such as the red barn and the infamous Bates motel from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, will now be seen against a backdrop of Burlington House’s neoclassical buildings. Cornelia Parker was elected a Royal Academician in 2009. She has since had solo shows at the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester, and the Frith Street Gallery, London. She is well known for her installations, including Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View (1991), a reconstruction of an exploded shed, which now forms part of Tate’s collection. Generously illustrated, this book comprises a conversation with the artist and a text on the work’s installation in London.

Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity

Frances Fowle & Hannah Brocklehurst


enri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s brief career coincided with one of the most exciting periods in the history of western printmaking. In Paris at the end of the nineteenth century, a new generation of avant-garde artists made techniques such as lithography, etching and woodcut central to their creative process. Vibrant images of the celebrities of the day – performers, singers and dancers from Paris’s most famous nightclubs such as the Moulin Rouge and the Chat Noir – Lautrec’s work was a huge commercial success. The prints and posters of this time are colourful, evocative and iconic. Toulouse-Lautrec’s ground-breaking achievements in lithography, his technical and artistic virtuosity and modern outlook and approach, transgressed traditional boundaries by mixing popular culture, commerce and art and led the way to modern visual culture.

Beezy Bailey Richard Cork & Roslyn Sulcas


eezy Bailey aspires to create art as a balm for a mad world – a corrective for our most lamentable human qualities, including a planet brutalised by extremes of wealth and poverty, environmental ignorance and negligence. Often his works are accompanied by poems, such as 1000 Year Dance Cure, in which he exhorts the world to dance a new dance, to abandon that which does not serve us, and to embrace each other in our humanity, and the Earth in her service to us. The sources of his imagery are elusive. In his own words: “frozen dreams, images and legends enter from my subconscious, the realm of my imagination. I act as a conduit for visual messages greater than I am.” This new monograph embraces the entire spectrum of Bailey’s creative output over the past thirtyfive years, from sculpture and ceramics to paintings, prints and drawings.

Final Works of the Great Masters: From Giotto to Twombly Bernard Chambaz


here are no rules, and even less justice. Death takes everyone without discrimination. Sometimes it is accidental – like Signorelli, who fell from scaffolding. Sometimes it is expected, as with the diabetic Cezanne, who wrote “I am old, sick, and I swore to die while painting”. But often, researching a painter’s death is an easier task than determining which of their works is truly their ‘last’. Paintings tend to be dated by year and not month, inciting much debate among art historians. This book embraces this ambiguity, studying 100 examples of works that lay completed for several years, or were left unfinished on the easel, or were finished post-mortem by a friend’s grieving hand. The Last Painting collects 100 terminal paintings from 100 artists, including Dalí, Manet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Goya, Pollock, Rembrandt, Dix, Bonnard, Titien, and many more. Each picture gives us a glimpse into the painter’s mind. Did they know death was coming? Did they paint with denial, or acceptance? Did they return to a favourite subject, or decide to embark on a new, original project while they still had time? A poetic and thought-provoking book, The Last Painting is a sensitive exploration of the relationship between art and death.

Best known for his monumental sculptures, his pieces are tributes to the monumentality of sculpture, what the artist called “presence.” His large objects fill entire rooms, pressing outward against the walls and ceilings; themes include the force of gravity, the dynamism of planar surfaces, the impact of scale, and the emotional power of confrontation with the viewer.

of his best-known pieces are Earth Drawings, which he created in his early career, and Three Elements, which was featured at the breakthrough exhibition Primary Structures at The Jewish Museum in 1966

n Featuring

an essay from a leading international scholar in the field

his absorbing introduction to the story of Rembrandt’s rampant fame and influence in Britain is filled with beautiful images. The story of ‘Rembrandt mania’ began in 18th-century Britain with passionate, and often eccentric, collectors acquiring artworks by any and every means. As the craze for Rembrandt ebbed and flowed, each new wave of enthusiasm brought him ever-greater fame and influence, and collectors became increasingly ingenious. This master’s impact not only on collectors and the public but also on British artists over the last four centuries is explored, with lavish paintings, drawings and prints from artists such as Henry Raeburn, Joshua Reynolds and James Abbott McNeill Whistler shown alongside some of Rembrandt’s most famous masterpieces.

Carole Blumenfeld


ften dismissed merely as Fragonard’s sister-in-law, Marguerite Gérard (17611837) was in fact one of the major artists working in France in the late 18th century. Initially Fragonard’s pupil, she found success as an artist in her own right, becoming known for her portraits and sometimes voluptuous genre scenes. Standing alongside Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun and Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, Marguerite Gérard is another in the distinguished company of French female artists of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries whose major talents and formidable characters are now being rediscovered Lavishly illustrated throughout, this engaging and comprehensive study – the first devoted to Gérard – includes detailed appendices and a complete catalogue raisonné of Marguerite Gérard’s work.

The Eclipse of Classicism

Vern G. Swanson


ohn William Godward was among the brightest stars of the late Graeco-Roman painters during classicism’s twilight years. However, his own reclusive nature, society’s loss of interest in classical subject painting, aggressive modernist art and the efforts of his disapproving family conspired to plunge him into obscurity. Godward’s art was more than escapist; it was purposely beautiful in an age plunging headlong into atrocity. A hapless victim of his own personality, unable to make his way in a hostile world, Godward ended it all. This revised edition of Vern G. Swanson’s essential work contains the author’s latest research – significant expansions to the text, as well as approximately 100 new pictures, many of which have only recently been attributed to Godward.

Austin Cooper, Master of the Poster Ruth Artmonsky


ustin Cooper was by chance of birth a Canadian but built his career as a commercial artist in London. Art-educated in Wales and Scotland, he became, in the interwar years, one of the most highly-respected poster artist in the United Kingdom – one of L.N.E.R’s ‘elite’ five, his name comparable to that of McKnight Kauffer for work for London Transport, and a contributor to Post Office posters for some ten years. He was to become the Principal of the distinguished Reimann School for its short life in London just prior to WWII. He then virtually disappeared from the commercial art world, leading a reclusive life in a frustrated attempt to build a belated career as a ‘fine’ artist. His ‘Making a Poster’ book is as valid in its advice now as when it was written in 1938.

Made in Denmark

Design Since 1900

Edited by Olaf Thormann and Sabine Epple for the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts Leipzig

n The

interest in Danish design remains unbroken; this volume shows how the Danish form of Art Nouveau created the basis for the hype



anish design is inextricably linked with the design icons of the twentieth century. From Kaare Klint via Arne Jacobsen to Verner Panton, they informed the product and home decor culture of whole generations. However, that equally significant designers, craftspeople and internationally observed trends that preceded this era receives far less attention. Yet it is Skønvirke, the Danish form of Art Nouveau, that created the basis for modern Danish design. ‘Made in Denmark’ was finally established as an international brand by 1945. Danish, and by extension Scandinavian, design has been a role model ever since and remains the epitome and expression of a timeless modern lifestyle to this day.

100 Objects that Define India Jahnvi Lakhota Nandan, Shivani Gupta

n Gathers

together, in a fun and colourful way, 100 objects that represent Indian culture and design - from Agarbatti to Veena, from Bindi to Z-shaped pump


n Hindi ‘pukka’ means genuine, authentic, complete. Design in India is not only determined by the aesthetic appeal of the object, but also by the significance of the object in the everyday life of its users. In some instances, the age-old practices established by ancient Indian wisdom determine the design of an object, such as the datun (neem tree twig) recommended for oral care or agarbatti (incense) used to heal and protect. On the other hand, the lota (a kind of metal pot) has been a part of everyday Indian life for centuries and its design remains unchanged even today. Pukka Indian, or Purely Indian, brings together 100 objects that are the most coveted symbols representing Indian culture and design. This illustrated book celebrates the diversity, versatility, vibrancy, and colours of design icons - ranging from kulhad to the kolhapuri chappal, Nano to the Nehru jacket, and auto rickshaw meter to the Ambassador – that set them apart in a country as multifarious as India. Each of these 100 profiles reveals the intrinsic Indian nature of every object, and how each has influenced design, culture and, in turn, every Indian.

He is responsible for such iconic landmarks as the Shard in London, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. The Renzo Piano Building Workshop, based in Paris and Genoa, fosters this spirit of collaboration and mentoring, and continues to pioneer ground-breaking architecture that challenges and inspires. This book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, provides an intimate look at the life and work of a man who believes passionately that architecture should make a positive contribution to people and place. An exclusive interview with Piano himself introduces this exceptional publication, before a series of texts by major figures from the worlds of culture, engineering and building, including the Oscar-winning actor and director Roberto Benigni, the artist Susumu Shingu and the architect Richard Rogers, Piano’s co-designer of the Centre Georges Pompidou.

New Orleans

Garden City Extraordinaire Geoffrey H. Baker


ometimes, the vocation of a place is hard to understand. New Orleans, like Venice, is built in a location that at first sight seems curious in the extreme. How could it be that these cities, built so precariously in the face of a watery threat, were to become among the greatest in the world? It seems that the challenge posed by the location, the opportunities created and the resilience of the inhabitants were decisive. By a strangely circuitous route, places that seem to have little promise are transformed because they create an opportunity at a particular time. This guide, richly photographed, endeavours to highlight these plights. ACC Art Books Autumn 2018

Nile Greenberg & Matthew Kennedy

n 1928 Swiss architect Hannes Meyer (18891954) became director of the Bauhaus in Dessau. During his tenure at Bauhaus, Meyer proposed the concept of the ‘Advanced School of Collective Feeling’. It was based on his belief that the gymnasium was overtaking the museum as the great public space. American architects and designers Matthew Kennedy and Nile Greenberg have undertaken a reconstruction of Meyer’s 1928 concept by building models, redrawing plans and examining types of activity that took place in the context of this experiment. Their new book brings to light Meyer’s nearly forgotten concept and features the contemporary reconstruction of the ‘Advanced School of Collective Feeling’ through texts and illustrations.

he Bauhaus Dessau, designed by Walter Gropius, was home to the Bauhaus Dessau School of Design from 1925 to 1932. The epitome of 20th century modern design worldwide, it attracts some 80,000 visitors annually from Germany and abroad. In 1996, the building was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. This volume shows, in over 80 unique photographs – taken in the empty rooms immediately after the general renovation of 1996-2006 – the transparency and lightness of an exceptionally sensate modern architecture, whose surprising and bold colouration debunks the myth of a ‘white Modernism’.

Vladimir Guculak


his atlas of contemporary landscape architecture in London offers a comprehensive overview of new projects within public space. Over the past years, major investments in the infrastructure and housing market of London have driven the need for high-quality public spaces. In the course of this development, new public areas have been created, brownfields have been revitalised, and already-existing gardens and parklands have been upgraded. Landscape Observer: London illustrates these spaces with numerous photographs. Details of the hard and soft landscape elements are labelled to provide essential information on key materials and plants used in each individual project. The book therefore serves as a reference guide and source of inspiration for landscape architects and urban planners, as well as for garden designers and political activists in the field of infrastructure and urban planning.

The book presents model assembly kits and the real buildings that inspired them, and thus brings the architecture and model construction history of the post-war period together.

A History of Thresholds

Life, Death & Rebirth

Sensual City Studio


hresholds are an anthropological constant found in every era and culture. From the spatial understanding of Greek antiquity to the establishment of the private sphere in the 18th century, the threshold has always been a central architectural element. It is only in recent decades that thresholds have lost significance as part of our everyday experience with architecture. Sensual City Studio not only provides an overview of this important architectural feature, but also shows in particular that thresholds can and must be rethought and rebuilt.

he enormous increase of urbanisation characterising the 20th century often overlays the architectural approaches that took place when cities were founded and continue to have an effect into the present day. Many cities have been newly planned and built from the ground up. What they all have in common is the search for a new urban beginning. The aim of ambitious future programs should be a better control of the growth of metropolises. This book, which not only presents fundamental international planning features, examines factors such as location, size and layout in particular, as well as the spatial value of new metropolises.

Silver Jewellery - 20th Century. The New Schwandt Collection Jörg Schwandt

n Comprehensive

volume on Danish silver jewellery including 166 pieces by 48 artists


implicity of material and solid craftsmanship have secured Danish silver jewellery its prominent role in the twentieth century. Until c. 1920 the chasing technique creates an intensive plasticity; the imagery is concrete and close to nature. The functionalistic period with its geometrical design leaves the narrative element behind, preparing for the abstract, sculptural forms of the 1950s. Smooth surfaces and lively reflections of light characterise the second half of the century. The New Schwandt Collection presents 166 highlights by fortyeight artists, all of which are illustrated. Besides providing a general aesthetic evaluation, the author closely observes artists and trends over twenty chapters. The book includes notes on artists and workshops, a list of signatures, bibliographical notes and a special chapter on how to date early Georg Jensen jewellery.

hey consider Charles Darwin to be their executive director, their sources of inspiration are still lifes by 16th and 17th century painters such as Jan Weenix, Frans Snijders and Melchior d’Hondecoeter, and British artist Damien Hirst is their biggest fan. He bought their first collection of art works. You can call them flamboyant, special or strange, but the very least you can say is that the career of Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren is impressive. Their work is devoted to showing the ultimate beauty and magic of nature and amazes by the astonishing sculptured compositions, reviving animals.

Ceramic Works

Jorunn Veiteberg, Lars Dybdahl


ince her debut in 1995, the Danish ceramist Gitte Jungersen (b. 1967) has gained much attention for her innovative work with ceramic glazes. She experiments with extremely active glazes that melt and run during firing, and form individual masses and cracks. After cooling, the works appear as congealed traces, balancing on the edge between chaos and control.

Johannes Nagel Trial and Error

Jörg Johnen, Marcel René Marburger


appenstance and gesture play a central role in the creative work of the ceramicist Johannes Nagel (b. 1979). His objects examine the associations between form and idea. Using work techniques such as burrowing into sand to form negative figurations for casting, he successfully performs his work directly and manually, lending the process of searching a tangible presence.

Bubacco’s works in glass are unparalleled examples of extraordinary Venetian flame technique


ost of the subjects of Lucio Bubacco’s (b. 1957) glass art are provocative and polarising; at the same time they are sensual and beguiling. In a kind of erotic ‘trance dance’ – Mephistophelian and frequently riotous – nightmarish fabulous creatures and mythological phantasms virtually undulate about each other. His technical virtuosity in creative execution is unparalleled, for the Murano-born glass artist has elevated the Venetian flame technique to a new level of skill and complexity.

P.R.J. Ford


etween 1400 and 1500 a design revolution in Persia swept away a 2000-year-old tradition of carpet design, replacing abstract geometric patterns with complex floral scrolls. This revolution represents a major event in world art history, comparable to the Italian Renaissance. It was followed over the next four centuries by a second revolution, during which the principal design elements of the first permeated carpet production at every level throughout Persia and continue to dominate it to this day.

Its companion volume, Traditional Indian Jewellery: The Golden Smile of India explores the rich heritage of Indian jewellery and its significance in past and present Indian society.

It is not only girls and women who wear jewellery, but also boys, men, temple statues and even animals. The books excel in their detailed descriptions, which accompany the sumptuous array of images. These publications are the result of thirty-five years of research – travelling, studying, and talking to many people across the entire subcontinent of India, as well as having had unprecedented access to goldsmiths and enamellers; being shown techniques known only to one family, which have been transferred from generation to generation; and being granted access to beautiful and never-beforeseen Royal collections.

ew Yorkers love their museums. It’s an obsession. From Gauguin to gangsters, finance to food, New York City has the richest museum culture in the world. Only here, can a former run down tenement be transformed to one of the most beloved museums in the city. And for New Yorkers, simply finding the best museums is an urban sport itself; a personal quest to seek out the cool, the curious and the uncanny. Consider this book a treasure guide to the secret corners of the iconic museums, a field guide to the little museums you never dreamed existed. We learn, we grow, we are amused and inspired. And when we leave, we feel a little more connected to the city around us, and to ourselves. And that’s what being a New Yorker is all about.

isbon, Lisboa... the Portuguese capital stands for colourful tiles and architectural contrasts, the most sunshine hours in Europe and a very special light, for traditional shops next to postmodern shopping centres. Lisbon is in fact the oldest city in Western Europe. Today the city is booming again like no other time since the days of the great voyages of discovery. Foreign investors are buying into it; facades are being surrounded by scaffolding. The goldmine of tourism has created a new international flair, brought jobs and attracted film teams, scrubbing away at the morbid charm of urban decay. Lisbon’s lively cultural life now includes a young blossoming street art scene; it is a city with rather reserved, friendly people and an unflustered multicultural identity. With the help of this book, track down the Portuguese soul – and the famous saudade!

The History of a Legend

Preface by Sir Kenneth Branagh Text by Guillaume Picon, Photography by Benjamin Chelly

n This

beautifully illustrated book captures the history, the legends and the unique style of the most famous train on earth: The Orient Express


he first train to connect Paris to Constantinople - the gateway to the Orient and epitome of all its associated desires and fantasies - the Orient Express was an immediate success. Quickly nicknamed ‘the king of trains, the train of kings’, it had already become a legend in its own time. This unique train and its celebrated passengers (both real and fictional) have become one of the great cultural icons of our times and have helped to create a limitless source of stories and fantasies to feed our imaginations. It’s a story told here through fabulous new photographs of the restoration workshops where the historic train carriages are being brought back to life, through archive photos of famous and exotic destinations, and portraits of the most famous passengers who were lucky enough to climb aboard.

Beetle Love Edited by Dr. Nadja Kneissler


eetle Love endures. It’s global and conquers every generation. And this love is classless. Never mind if used as a taxi on a daily basis, as a company car owned by a craft brewery in Ecuador, as a show piece in Great Britain or as a family heirloom in Indonesia: Beetle Love introduces them all. Convertibles and limousines, from red to rusty, from purple to polished. And it’s always the story that their owners lost their hearts to the Beetle. And rightly so! Hardly any other car arouses more emotions around the world. All covered in this book, more than 20 stories, 208 pages, a wonderful and unique picture and story book.

A Tribute to 70 Years of Porsche

Stefan Bogner & Ben Winter


0 years of passion. 70 years, in which the enthusiasm for sporty driving, advanced technology and sensual design has created something very special. Is it a coincidence that more than 70 percent of all Porsche cars ever built are still on the road today? There can only be one answer when you gather together the highlights from seven decades of sports car construction – not in a well-tempered museum, but in the places for which they were created: road and track. What if you had to get a 918 Spyder to Germany via the snowbound passes of northern Italy? What would it be like to rerun the legendary record-breaking lap of the Nordschleife in Stefan Bellof’s 956? Can you bring a 906 to the Porsche Rennsport Reunion in Laguna Seca under your own steam? This may sound like a shimmering daydream, but it turns into a tribute to 70 years of brand history, captured in unparalleled images.

These are the cars that should have been bought when they were new and kept for the future – now that they are truly desired. Features cars from across the varied spans of time, price and purpose, including: Lancia Lambda, Austin Seven, Volkswagen Beetle, Jaguar C-Type, Citroen DS19, Ford Mustang, DeLorean DMC 12, McLaren F1.

Vodka: The Complete Guide tells the whole story, from the origin and production method to an overview of the numerous vodka brands and the most delicious cocktails.

alk into any bar, in almost any part of the world, and there, on the back shelf you’re likely to see Vodka, Gin, Scotch, Bourbon, Brandy, Rum, Shochu, Tequila, Absinthe, Vermouth. These drinks helped shape our culture; inspired authors and painters, brought both anarchy and harmony and even, in some cases, induced mass hysteria. In Ten Drinks That Changed the World, bartender, poet and writer Seki Lynch tells the stories behind the spirits. Tracing the origins of each drink, he dissects the ingredients and locates the first makers, exploring how perceptions and consumption levels have ebbed and flowed through the centuries. Cocktail recipes, lists of artisan makers and insights from the great, good and notorious drinkers of history help complete the résumé for each drink. London artist Tom Maryniak has created original illustrations of each drink for the book.

Lila De Nobili, Edited by Claudie Gastine & Francesca Simone

wonderful gift for all cat lovers


ainters, writers and chansonniers have celebrated Paris cats since the 19th century, when Steinlein created the poster for the cabaret ‘Le Chat noir’. Lila De Nobili occupies an important place among these artists. She painted and designed stage sets for the Scala in Milan, the Opéra in Paris, Covent Garden in London and many other theatres. Sought by the most famous directors, she designed costumes for Maria Callas, Edith Piaf, Audrey Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman. Just after the events of May 1968, she devoted herself exclusively to painting and adopted her first cat, Ulysse, in her apartment in rue de Verneuil. The feline family soon grew and Lila never tired of sketching them, drawing them, or painting them in watercolour. Most of these intimate works, full of insight and subtlety, were gifted to a friend, herself a cat lover, by Lila in her last years and thanks to this collection a book can now be published.

he year was 1968, 50 years ago, when Arthur Ashe won the first U.S. Open Tennis Championships.

It was also a year of seismic social and political change. This book retells this turbulent chapter in 20th century history through the lens of American photographer John G. Zimmerman, who had unique access to Ashe before, during and after the US Open final in 1968. It presents the highlights of this tremendous photo series, accompanied by essays from prominent public intellectuals, who discuss the role and complex character of Arthur Ashe, the importance of 1968 and the Civil Rights Movement, and the aesthetics of sports photography.

Saunders attempted the ascent of Panch Chuli, ending in one of the most dramatic mountain rescues ever to succeed at such altitudes. All are included in this volume.

A Design Diary of Princely India

n Brings

together a range of works made for Indian princes by western artists


Amin Jaffer


ndian royalty’s passion for western luxury goods reached its peak at the height of the British Raj (1857-1947) as Indian rulers travelled to Europe and began to model their lives along western lines. Commissioning architects to design palaces in modern or historic styles, purchasing fleets of cars, and ordering their family jewels to be reset by the most skilled European goldsmiths, Indian princes established themselves as the new creative patrons of European high design. This book examines the role of maharajas in an age of high spending and fashion. It brings together original designs with surviving objects, and looks at the creative dialogue between Indian princes and the tradesmen who satisfied their desires. Rich in anecdotes and visually splendid, Made for Maharajas brings alive the lavish, varied and sometimes implausible works commissioned by princes whose wealth knew no bounds.

Last Of The Tattooed Headhunters

Phejin Konyak & Peter Bos. Foreword by William Dalrymple

n The

first time such intensive research and documentation on Konyak tattoo art has been undertaken


he Konyaks – a once fearsome headhunting tribe in Nagaland on the border of Myanmar in northeast India – are well known for their iconic body and facial tattoos, originally earned for taking an enemy’s head. This book – over four years in the making – is the personal journey of a Konyak woman who retraces the steps of her grandfather and great-grandfather by documenting her tribe’s tattooing practices. She explores the Konyak’s concept of beautification of the body using it as a canvas for art, with inscriptions marked on the skin as a form of rite of passage and cycle of life. With elegant and powerful portraits of elders, both men and women, this book preserves the unique but vanishing practices of the culture, together with tattoo patterns, their meanings, and the oral traditions attached to them in folktales, songs, poems and sayings. It includes descriptions and information on headhunting and tattooing practices; reasons behind them; techniques used; tattoo artists; different tattoo groups; types of tattoos; and personal stories.

Magic, Ritual and Witchcraft

Sophie Page, Marina Wallace et al


pellbound explores the concept of ‘magical thinking’, which describes how people in all ages and cultures have sought to connect with an unseen world of perceived power. This concept of magical thinking is used here to explore the history of medicine and the mind, focusing in particular on magic’s secular expressions. Spells, magical objects and rituals are engines of hope, and hope is essential to physical and mental health, indeed to survival. These ideas are explored and conveyed through the extraordinary visual culture of magic, offering an introduction to diverse magical objects, from the exquisite, such as engraved rings and illuminated manuscripts, to the unsettling – a shoe embedded in a wall or a bull’s heart pierced with nails.

Witches & Wicked Bodies Deanna Petheridge


itches & Wicked Bodies provides an innovative, rich survey of images of European witchcraft from the sixteenth century to the present day. It focuses on the representation of female witches and the enduring stereotypes they embody, ranging from hideous old crones to beautiful young seductresses. Such imagery has ancient precedents and has been repeatedly re-invented by artists over the centuries, to include scenes with corpses and cauldrons, caverns and kitchens, and the dead being raised through demonic or satanic rites all inversions of an ordered and religious social world. Petherbridge introduces this fascinating subject and includes catalogue entries on each of the exhibited works. The illustrations primarily feature drawings and prints as well as a group of important paintings. A wide range of artists is represented including Dürer, Goya, Fuseli, Blake, Burra and Rego.
