Conran Quant Swinging London – A Lifestyle Revolution Geoffrey Rayner & Richard Chamberlain Transporting you back to London at the height of the Swinging Sixties, this book provides vital context for two of the biggest and boldest names in ‘Pop’ fashion: Mary Quant, alleged mother of the miniskirt, and Terence Conran, the entrepreneur behind the new wave of ‘lifestyle’ stores. Friends, associates and allies in design, Quant and Conran stood at the head of an informal but influential bohemian group who steered the rudder of style during the Pop era. ‘The Chelsea Set’ resist definition; there was no comprehensive members list. Conran/Quant: Swinging London - A Lifestyle Revolution explores the contributions of designers and artists from Laura and Bernard Ashley to Eduardo Paolozzi, Nigen Henderson and Alexander Plunket Greene, all of whom were essential generators of Sixties Style. 9781788840118 ACC Art Books 270 x 215mm. 224pp., 180 col.

“It is given to a fortunate few to be born at the right time, in the right place, with the right talents. In recent fashion there have been three: Chanel, Dior and Mary Quant.” - Ernestine Carter
Pays homage to ‘the Chelsea Set’, a bohemian, progressive clique that would change the course of sixties contemporary design, with a focus on Mary Quant and Terence Conran.
Kenzo Takada Kazuko Masui and Chihiro Masui In 1970, the young Japanese designer Kenzo Takada opened his first boutique, Jungle Jap, in Paris and revolutionised the fashion world. His colourful, ethnic, and nomadic- influenced collections, made with luxurious and vibrantly patterned textiles, tweaked the conventions of haute couture while maintaining the quality of traditional European clothing houses. He was influenced by Parisian fashion and Japanese kimonos, boldly mixing colours and prints, cuts and materials. His vibrant palette and pattern combinations were joyful and whimsical, and very different from the subtle tailoring of the traditional Paris couturier. In his inspired blend of the opulent and the exotic, he developed a signature style and found early success. With stunning photography, and over 300 sketches from Kenzo’s private collection, this book traces more than forty years of his creative output. It includes photographs from his high-energy runway shows, in addition to personal photographs, and a behind-the-scene look at the creation of a spectacular wedding dress, opening a window on the creative process and capturing Kenzo’s energy, vision, and presence. Superbly illustrated throughout with pencilled and hand coloured sketches, swatched drawings, and previously unpublished archival photographs, the authors explore Kenzo’s career, tracing the evolution of his cult label in a look-book of visual exuberance.

Rock ‘n’ Roll London Tony Barrell London teemed with top-rated singers and musicians during the ‘60s and ‘70s, whether they were squatting, playing gigs or investing in multi-million pound mansions. Follow McCartney and co. to the quiet flat on Green Street that was their refuge before the Beatlemaniacs sought them out. Wind back time to when Loog Oldham locked Mick and Keith in their flat and demanded they compose a song. From the zany to the tragic – it was in St Mary Abbot’s Hospital, Kensington where Jimi Hendrix was pronounced dead – this is a guidebook like no other, a pilgrimage dedicated to the rock ‘n’ roll greats.

London Peculiars A Handbook for Offbeat Explorers Peter Ashley A peculiar can be defined as something that ‘has eccentric or individual variations to the general or predicted pattern’. And, as it turns out, London is overflowing with them. This pocket-sized book will accompany you around the capital, guiding you from the tent-shaped tomb designed for Victorian explorer Sir Richard Burton by his widow, Isabel Arundel Gordon; to what may be the last surviving porter’s rest in London; to a stone niche by a long-demolished foundling hospital where almost 15, 000 infants were discarded over the course of the 18th century. Sometimes heroic, sometimes tragic, often amusing and always unexpected, these so-called ‘peculiars’ bring colour to the fabric of London. Whether you are a lifelong resident or a visitor passing through, London Peculiars is guaranteed to lead you on an adventure. 9781851499182 ACC Art Books Ltd 210 x 150mm. 112pp., 168 col.

Hard Rock Hotel Tony Barrell With a finger on the pulse of the twentieth century music scene - tapping along to the beat, in fact – the Hard Rock Hotel, previously known as the Cumberland, was second home to some of the brightest stars on record. Buddy Holly stayed here during his only British tour, less than a year before his tragic death. The Rolling Stones paid Bo Diddley a visit in his suite. Jimi Hendrix gave his final interviews from the Cumberland, named as the place of residence on his death certificate. And, most infamously, it was on the fifth floor of the Cumberland Hotel where a besotted fan with a revolver held Shirley Bassey hostage in 1957. From Bob Dylan to Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross, from Little Richard to Madonna and A-Ha, each suite is steeped in stories. Whether they were wining and dining, giving interviews to the press, or looking for a place within walking distance of Pye Studios, where some of the most iconic pop songs of the sixties and seventies were recorded, the Cumberland was the place to be. Hard Rock Hotel honours its roots with this incredible collection of shots, capturing the glamour, drama, sex, drugs and (of course) the rock ‘n’ roll. 9781788840095 ACC Art Books 290 x 237mm. 192pp., 150 col. April 2019 £29.95, Hardback
Take a tour of the rich rock history behind one of London’s most nefarious hotels, featuring icons such as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna and Stevie Wonder.
London Secrets Style, Design, Glamour, Gardens Janelle McCulloch London Secrets unlocks the city’s most fascinating secrets. Janelle McCulloch strips away bricks, mortar and tarmac to uncover parts of the capital that even born and bred Londoners may never have seen. In the shadow of the Gherkin, Cheesegrater and Walkie-Talkie skyscrapers are medieval churches, crypts and the curios of Postman’s Park – proof that altruism can exist in the Square Mile. In St James’s, a stone’s throw from the glitz and glamour of Soho are hidden squares and shops dating from a gentler age – purveyors of fine wine, gentleman’s apparel and bowler hats. The cobbled mews of Marylebone and Hampstead Village reveal unexpected treasures, rarely seen interiors and a rural idyll amid the urban hum. While the esoteric collections at the Horniman, Sir John Soane’s Museum and exotica of Leighton House make you feel you are in an entirely different country altogether. The author reveals the traditions and quirks that have survived to this day, from the freedom of the City of London allowing you to herd sheep through the town, to the “market ouvert” of Bermondsey Market, original home of the London wheeler-dealer. 9781864708158 The Images Publishing Group 245 x 218mm. 224pp., 200 col. Available £17.99, Hardback
Lavishly photographed and researched, London Secrets sheds a whole new light on this most vibrant – and surprising – of cities.
The Best of Norman Parkinson Edited by Carrie Kania Norman Parkinson (1913-1990) is one of the greatest and most influential photographers of the twentieth century. Beginning in the 1930s his style of work helped define the look of each subsequent decade (including the New Look of Paris in the ‘50s and Swinging London of the ‘60s) and his impact on his followers was immense. Parkinson gained recognition in his early years revolutionising photography by moving female models from the static, serious and controlled environment of the photographic studio to real-life locations and exotic surroundings. This dynamic and spontaneous style garnered the attention of numerous fashion magazines including Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and Town & Country, earning Parkinson international recognition. His photographs helped create the age of the supermodel and made Parkinson the photographer of choice for fashion designers, artists and writers, musicians and actors, and British royalty. In a career that spanned six decades, Parkinson dazzled the world and inspired his peers with sparkling inventiveness as a portrait and fashion photographer. His achievements were recognised by the Queen of England when, in 1981, he was awarded a C.B.E. (Commander of the British Empire). In that same year he was also honoured with a major retrospective exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Goats and Sheep. A Portrait Farm Kevin Horan, Elena Passarello When American photographer Kevin Horan moved from city to country, he found among his animal companions goats and sheep whose chorus of sounds suggested they were not just herd animals, but perhaps individuals as well. Experienced in portraiture, Horan decided to photograph them in his studio, as though they were privileged clients. The resulting images ask us to notice the variety, dignity, and personalities of these lowliest of creatures, who speak to us through the camera in a profile, a sideward glance, or direct gaze. With different coats, faces, and expressions, they are funny, fascinating, intelligent, curious, engaging “others” who command our undivided attention and respect. They remind us that we too are fellow creatures – and the camera isn’t always on us.

Oliver’s Birds Photographs by Oliver Hellowell, Forewards by Iolo Williams and Ken Jenkins Oliver doesn’t only snap birds; his camera shutter also clicks closed for the play of light across rippling water, the mist rising off a wood in early spring and the rolling Somerset hills where he was raised. But birds are a favourite subject of his, and his camera never fails to do them justice. Oliver’s sensitivity to lighting, colour contrast and mood imbues each picture with a unique atmosphere, resulting in precise shots of professional quality. The birds’ glossy eyes, their beaks, the intricate patterns on their feathers and the texture of their down have all been captured with a patience and skill that is admired by dedicated fans from all across the world.

Splash Bob Tabor This collection of nature photography has a poetic purpose in mind. These images convey the sea’s raw power, its constructive and destructive force. Each picture is reflected back on itself, flipped or curved, the waves like works of sculpture that extend into infinity. Tabor’s ingenious method captures the spirit of the wave by breaking it into its physical elements. He crops the most energetic section of the surf and, by eliminating the horizon line, deprives the picture of any sense of scale. He heightens chromatic contrasts until these waves dominate the image – there is only the fluid burst of spray and the flash of reflected light off the water. The results are undeniable: dynamic three-dimensional explosions seem to surge off the page, and it is hard to believe these waves aren’t moving. Splash will bring the ocean to you.

Hollywood Dogs Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation Edited by Gareth Abbott and Catherine Britton; Foreword by William Secord, Introduction by Robert Dance Hollywood Dogs showcases a fine selection of photographs from the famous John Kobal Foundation. Taken between 1920 and 1960 during the Golden Age of Hollywood, they feature stars including Humphrey Bogart, Buster Keaton, Elvis Presley, Tony Curtis, Sophia Lauren, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Ava Gardner, Shirley Maclaine, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn posing with dogs of every stature and breed. In almost every case, these stunning photographs have never been seen before now. Amongst the images are some of the most famous dogs in Hollywood films: Lassie; Asta; Rin Tin Tin and Toto from the Wizard of Oz. There are also a few carefully-set-up publicity shots, such as Frank Sinatra on the set of Pal Joey, and Jean Harlow accessorised with a large hat and two Old English sheepdogs.

Hollywood Cats Photographs From the John Kobal Foundation Gareth Abbott and Simon Crocker There were an impressive number of animal stars during the golden age of film. Cats, however, had something of a unique place within this menagerie of animals. Some, like the young cat that sits on Marlon Brando’s knee in a scene from The Godfather found themselves a place in cinema history, but most simply lived out their lives within the confines of the lots untroubled by dreams of stardom. Hollywood Cats showcases an incredible selection of photographs, taken during the golden age of Hollywood, of stars with their cats, celebrating and documenting this special relationship. Both Carole Lombard and Greer Garson manage to look even more sultry draped alongside their feline friends; photographs of madcap duo Laurel and Hardy playing with a kitten are both comical and endearing. Perhaps the most famous – and arguably the most important of all Hollywood cats is the MGM lion, Leo, who appeared (and still appears) on every MGM movie.

Terry O’Neill Rare and Unseen Terry O’Neill Terry 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 across the globe. 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 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. 9781788840002 ACC Art Books 320 x 320mm. 240pp., 32 col., 111 b.&w.

Duffy Chris Duffy As famous as the stars he photographed, Brian Duffy defined the image of Swinging London in the 1960s. Together with David Bailey and Terence Donovan, Duffy is recognised as one of the innovators of ‘documentary’ fashion photography, a style which revolutionised the industry. Their attitude and aesthetic iconified the scene, birthing the cult of the fashion photographer and inspiring the famous film Blow-Up (Michelangelo Antonioni, 1966). As Duffy put it, “Before 1960, a fashion photographer was tall, thin and camp. But we three are different: short, fat and heterosexual!” The press nicknamed the three photographers ‘The Terrible Three’, while Norman Parkinson added to their notoriety by naming them ‘The Black Trinity’. Duffy’s most famous photograph is the ‘Mona Lisa of pop’, the cover of Bowie’s ‘Aladdin Sane’. He collaborated with the artist over eight years and exerted a direct influence on the numerous reinventions of Bowie’s image. It is fitting, therefore, that this new edition should expand on their work together, providing new images from the photographer’s archive, depicting both the star and photographer in their prime. 9781788840088 ACC Art Books 290 x 232mm. 224pp., June 2019 £45.00, Hardback
Celebrates the career of one of the top British fashion photographers. This new expanded edition includes striking new snaps, including a dedicated new section on David Bowie.
They Must Fall Muhammad Ali and the Men He Fought Photography and Words by Michael Brennan, Introduction by Jimmy Breslin From award-wining photographer Michael Brennan comes a book highlighting his extensive archive of powerful and sometimes very moving images from the world of boxing. They Must Fall: Muhammad Ali and the Men He Fought features images of not only Ali, the ‘Greatest of All Time’, but also of the men he fought in the ring. Brennan located former opponents for a special feature that ran over several pages in Sports Illustrated, to discover for himself where these great athletes ended up. Willie Besmanoff, who fought Ali in 1961, became a youth counsellor. George Logan, who lost in a technical knockout in 1962, became a school truancy officer. When Brennen took photos of Joe Frazier in 1979, he was performing as a cabaret singer. Frazier fought Ali three times, winning the first fight in a famed Madison Square Garden match in 1971, but later lost in 1974 and 1975. Buster Mathis, who lost in 1971, went on to load trucks. George Foreman, who lost by a knockout in the 8th round in 1974, reinvented himself as a roadside preacher in 1978. This unique book is a look through Brennan’s archive with a spotlight on the 1970s. It will contain several never-before-seen photos. With text throughout by Michael Brennan, including his original 1981 Sports Illustrated essay, this is an eye-opening and fascinating account of Ali and the men who challenged him in the ring. This edition also includes a special introductory essay by the late, great Jimmy Breslin.

Steve Diet Goedde
Extempore Photographs by Steve Diet Goedde, with introduction by Andi Campognone Steve Diet Goedde’s photographs are concerned with fetishism, but they could reasonably be regarded as fashion photographs, for they are about clothes and the roles that dressing imposes on women, or allows them to play. Indeed, Goedde has consistently rejected the visual stereotypes of ‘fetish’ photography. Instead he sets out to seduce and amuse, experimenting with humour, irony and elements of the surreal. Extempore brings together images that are departures in another sense. They represent stolen moments, or glimpses behind the scenes, when the models are not necessarily aware of the camera. Most of Goedde’s models are drawn from his close circle of friends and in these photographs particularly one senses a shared trust and understanding.

When it comes to foreign visitors or artists, North Korea must be one of the most restrictive countries in the world. Nevertheless, Belgian-born Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer managed to cross the entire country in 42 days, divided into 3 separate journeys. In his latest book, De Keyzer goes deep into North Korea, officially the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the last communist state in the world from an ideological, political and cultural perspective. De Keyzer is one of very few photographers to have almost unlimited access to the country. He photographed more than 200 different locations, many of which had never been captured on camera before. The 250 photos that form his ‘Grand Tour’ – taken on marches, at the shooting range, in the subway and in family homes – are a testament to this unique and unfamiliar country.
Paci Contemporary Gallery
The photographs included here are testament to Horst’s virtuoso talent, to his mastery of light, form and space.

The City at the End of the Underground
Atlantic City was born in the midnineteenth century and grew so big, so fast, that it captured the American imagination. It was ‘the World’s Playground’. Its hotels were the largest and finest, its nightclubs legendary, its boardwalk an endless promenade. And then, as it began to fade, the casinos came. And instead of reviving the city they killed it. Chief among the villains in this piece is Donald J Trump, who built his casinos on dunes of debt and bled them into bankruptcy. On the presidential campaign trail Trump boasted of his ‘success’ in Atlantic City, how he had outwitted Wall Street and leveraged his own name for riches. He would do for America what he had done for Atlantic City, he said. And so it came to be. Brian Rose has documented what remains of the city in the aftermath of the casino explosion. The images are haunting. Atlantic City may never recover.
This book by Adriano Maccone and Alessandro Martinelli concerns the image of the city at the terminal stations of various underground mass-transit systems in Europe and the Far East. With the objective of documenting and understanding what constitutes the margin of the urban phenomenon in an age of globalisation and urbanisation, the book collects and complements a selection of materials from a photographic project that has been developed by Adriano Maccone over a number of years.
His photographs are of an oldfashioned beauty and at the same time radically contemporary. Flower by flower Bas Meeuws composes his floral still lifes, but digitally: the basis for Meeuws’ monumental works are digital photographs of individual flowers. They allude to the Dutch masters of the seventeenth century with their sense of luxury and their eye for the ephemeral. Meeuws strikes a chord in the art world with his flower still lifes. He is represented by Dutch, American, Taiwanese and Indian galleries and exhibits from Amsterdam to New Delhi.

England & Wales England and Wales offer an abundance of cultural and natural experiences - for both the tourist and for the native. England is a country steeped in impressive history, and has a past that still influences the present. Occupied for at least 5,000 years, no other country in Europe has quite so many mighty castles, monumental medieval cathedrals, and remarkable palaces. Nature and the countryside have plenty to offer: rolling hills, mysterious moors, spectacular cliff-lined coasts, and more than 30 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty; prehistoric monuments abound too. Vibrant cities such as Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford and of course London, stand out with their mix of modern and ancient architecture and exciting cultural life. Neighbouring Wales also boasts plenty of variety: from an epic 1,680 miles of coastline, to the snow-covered mountains of Snowdonia, its highest summit; from inviting small villages, in between imposing fortresses, to three National Parks that protect an impressive 20% of Wales. This book is a celebration of both countries.

Route 66, the first continuous road linking Chicago and Los Angeles, is an iconic American highway that attracts thousands of visitors each year. Originally designed in 1926 to create a speedier connection with the Pacific coast, today Route 66 represents the opposite: deceleration and leisure time. Passing through eight states, drivers see bustling cities like Santa Fe and ghost towns like Calico, natural spectacles such as the Mojave Desert, and the glories of the Grand Canyon. A road trip on Route 66 draws on the nostalgia of the American dream: the freedom to reinvent oneself, the lure of open country, the cult of ‘Easy Rider’, desert vistas, neon signs, vintage motels, mom-and-pop diners – in short, it is the symbol of a nation that idealises being ‘on the road’. This superb collection of photographs highlights forgotten places and outstanding sights along the legendary highway.

Barcelona Edited by Chiara Ingrosso When we think of Barcelona, the eclectic art of Antoni Gaudí immediately springs to mind. It is present in every corner of the city. Or we think of the Olympic Ring with the tower designed by Santiago Calatrava; but these are only two aspects of the exquisite beauty of the Catalan capital which has been able to blend old and new in a unique and unpredictable way. The traditional Gothic architecture has a discreet historical flavour, while the buildings that have appeared in the past 10 years reflect modern art trends like Cubism, Neo-plasticism, and Futurism. Named the European capital of innovation in 2014, the city boasts extremely distinctive urban planning because of the unusual bevelled corners on city blocks that provide more open street intersections, with extra space for outdoor cafés and seating, that give the city its particularly sociable community atmosphere. 9788899534721 Forma Edizioni 160 x 115mm. 192pp., 82 col., 60 b.&w.

Naples Edited by Andrea Nastri and Giuliana Vespere The influence of Anjou and Aragon, and the traces left by Bourbon, Hapsburg and Napoleonic domination have made Naples a treasure-trove of different styles and periods, rich in original imperfections and extravagance that deserve to be discovered and enjoyed.

Leonardo da Vinci Under the Skin Stephen Farthing and Michael Farthing Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) created many of the most beautiful and important drawings in the history of Western art. Many of these were anatomical and became the yardstick for the early study of the human body. From their unique perspectives as artist and scientist, brothers Stephen and Michael Farthing analyse Leonardo’s drawings – which are concerned chiefly with the skeletal, cardiovascular, muscular and nervous systems – and discuss the impact they had on both art and medical understanding. Stephen Farthing has created a series of drawings in response to Leonardo, which are reproduced with commentary by Michael, who also provides a useful glossary of medical terminology. Together, they reveal how some of Leonardo’s leaps of understanding were nothing short of revolutionary and, despite some misunderstandings, the accuracy of Leonardo’s grasp.

Félix Vallotton Painter of Disquiet Dita Amory, Philippe Büttner, Ann Dumas, Patrick McGuinness, Katia Poletti, Christian Rümelin and Belinda Thomson The Swiss artist Félix Vallotton (1865-1925) was born in Lausanne, but spent much of his working life in France. Closely associated with Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard, and a fellow member of the avant-garde group Les Nabis, Vallotton has nonetheless sometimes been overshadowed by his more famous contemporaries. Although he produced some of his most important work in Paris in the 1890s, his original and innovative approach persisted throughout his career. Texts by leading authorities look at his life, work and reception. Generously illustrated throughout with the finest exemplars of the artist’s paintings and prints, this book accompanies a new presentation of Vallotton’s oeuvre that aims to re-evaluate his output and legacy, and includes works never seen in public before.

Bill Viola / Michelangelo Life Death Rebirth Martin Clayton with Kira Perov At first glance, there may appear to be more to separate Michelangelo (14751564) and Bill Viola (b. 1951) than to unite them: one, the great master of the Italian Renaissance; the other, the creator of state-of-the-art immersive sound and video installations. And yet, when the Head of Prints and Drawings at the Royal Collection Martin Clayton showed Viola Her Majesty The Queen’s unsurpassed collection of Michelangelo drawings at Windsor in 2006, parallels began to emerge. This book presents a new perspective on both artists’ works. Stills and sequences from twelve key video pieces by Viola are reproduced alongside fourteen of Michelangelo’s presentation drawings, as well as the Taddei Tondo, the only Michelangelo marble sculpture in the UK and a treasure of the Royal Academy’s collection. Texts by Martin Clayton examine how existential concerns are explored in Viola’s often profoundly moving video installations, while Kira Perov, Viola’s partner and collaborator, provides insight into Viola’s working processes.
A selection of key works by the American video artist Bill Viola are presented alongside Michelangelo’s drawings revealing surprising parallels. Accompanies an exhibition presenting both artists’ works at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, from 26 January to 31 March 2019.

Helene Schjerfbeck Anna-Maria von Bonsdorff, Rebecca Bray, Désirée de Chair and Jeremy Lewison Though little known outside her native country, Helene Schjerfbeck (18621946) is one of Finland’s best-loved artists. Her career, which stretched from the late 1870s to the end of the Second World War, encompassed both Impressionism and Modernism. This book records an exhibition that marks the first solo show since she exhibited in London herself in 1890. It presents the full range of her exceptional paintings and drawings, with 70 works in all genres, including portrait, landscape and still-life. Schjerfbeck’s technique, her social and cultural context and her legacy are all examined in depth by the authors. Her relationship to such artists as Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Frank Auerbach is considered, while a series of selfportraits reveals the artist from youth to old age. The book also explores the role of the masquerade in Schjerfbeck’s work, and the impact of old-master paintings on her practice. Helene Schjerfbeck, Self-portrait, Black Background, 1915.

Mali Morris Painting Sam Cornish, preface by Mel Gooding The British painter Mali Morris’s career stretches over forty years. Her experiments with colour, layering, and pictorial space have made her one of the most intriguing abstract artists working in Britain today. She draws inspiration from the art of the past – from the paintings of Manet and Velázquez, and the chromatic intensities of Matisse, Indian miniatures and the Sienese masters – as well as acknowledging influence from such twentieth-century artists as Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann and Milton Avery. The contemporary vitality of her work comes from its inventiveness, always moving her painting forwards. This book is the first to present the full range of Morris’s stunning paintings, alongside an insightful essay by Sam Cornish that evaluates the influence and importance of her work, an illustrated chronology, and a preface by the art historian Mel Gooding.

Anne Desmet A Greek Journey Every page of this delightful book - meticulously reproduced from the sketchbooks that Anne Desmet has used since her first travels to Greece in the 1980s - is soaked with the sunshine of the Sporades. Desmet’s drawings show the daily life of her destinations and the bobbing fishing boats, shady streets and bright blue Mediterranean views that make them so appealing. Desmet commits every detail to paper, and the book’s small-scale format emphasises her distinctive flair for capturing the relationship between extreme foreground and distance. This is a unique opportunity to explore the Greek islands, through the eyes of a meticulous artist. Also available: Anne Desmet: An Italian Journey, 9781910350546, £9.95

Phyllida Barlow cul-de-sac Alastair Sooke and Edith Devaney The British sculptor Phyllida Barlow (b. 1944) studied at Chelsea College of Art (1960-63) and the Slade School of Art (1963-66), where she later taught for much of her career. In recent years she has been elected a Royal Academician, created new work for Tate and the Royal Academy, had numerous solo shows and represented Britain at the Venice Biennale. Barlow’s large-scale sculptures eschew serenity, balance and beauty in favour of instability, obstruction and oddness. They invade the spaces they inhabit, instead of neatly complementing them. Her use of inexpensive, everyday materials concrete, plywood, cardboard, plaster, fabric and paint - suggests that her works are a double act of recycling: both of the materials she uses and the images she draws from her memory. With installation shots of the artist’s new works at the Royal Academy and photography from the studio, this book situates Barlow as a key figure within contemporary sculpture. 9781912520015 Royal Academy of Arts 270 x 230mm. 80pp., 60 col.

Michael Craig-Martin Present Sense Ben Luke and Tim Marlow Born in Ireland, the artist Michael Craig-Martin (b. 1941) studied in America. On returning to the UK, he became a key figure in British conceptual art and an influential educator, linked in particular to the YBAs including Damien Hirst and Gary Hume. Craig-Martin’s works transform recognisable objects - such as sneakers, headphones, watches and, most recently, Modernist buildings - with bold colour and simplified lines. He cites his ‘rationalism’ as the root of his practice. Craig-Martin is the latest subject of a three-year curatorial partnership between The Gallery at Windsor, Florida, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, initiated to celebrate the latter’s 250th anniversary. This lively book reproduces a selection of his paintings, prints and sculptures, with an insightful essay by art critic Ben Luke and an interview between Tim Marlow and the artist.

Mick Moon Mel Gooding Mick Moon was born in Edinburgh in 1937 and grew up in Blackpool. He studied at the Chelsea School of Art (1958-62) and later taught at the Slade School of Fine Art (1973-90). He was elected a Royal Academician in 1994 and his work now forms part of many public collections including those of the Scottish National Gallery, Tate and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Moon’s paintings and prints combine a wide variety of media and techniques in complex and intriguing layers. More recently, photographic elements have formed part of his practice, along with textural materials such as wood and cloth which Moon combines with ink and paint. The art historian Mel Gooding provides an authoritative insight into Mick Moon’s practice and a definitive overview of his career. He argues that Moon is one of the most important artists of his generation and asserts his place as one of the key figures of post-war British art.

Emma Stibbon Fire and Ice The artist Emma Stibbon (b.1962) is fascinated by environments in flux. Her work often explores the impact of natural forces: the shifting tectonic plates, volcanic activity and powerful glaciers that shape and transform the Earth’s surface. Stibbon has accompanied research expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans, lived and worked among volcanoes in Hawai’i, and has made several visits to Stromboli, off the coast of northern Sicily, Iceland and Norway. This book presents the sketches she made during her travels. They have the immediacy that results from an artist working at speed and often in difficult circumstances. Readers will discover the unexpected visual effect of ink that has frozen on contact with the paper. The book is introduced by the artist who, informed by her discussions with vulcanologists and glaciologists, explains why she is drawn to depict nature’s extremes. 9781912520251 Royal Academy of Arts 180 x 240mm. 112pp., 48 col.

Chris Wilkinson Drawing What I see Chris Wilkinson, the founder of the architectural practice WilkinsonEyre, is responsible for beautiful buildings and structures in London and beyond, including the Gasholders at King’s Cross, the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge. In this appealing publication, Wilkinson presents the sketches he makes while travelling for business and leisure, usually focusing on inspirational buildings or urban cityscapes. Wherever he goes, he finds an hour or two to sit and sketch – whether in a hotel room with a view or on a café terrace with a cappuccino. From the medieval Tuscan town of Lucca to ancient Egyptian architecture, the Sydney Opera House and the skylines of London, Tokyo and New York, Wilkinson introduces each sketch and ruminates on his work, his travels, and the cities and buildings that have most inspired him. 9781912520244 Royal Academy of Arts 240 x 200mm. 144pp., 130 col.

Jock McFadyen Rowan Moore The product of extensive interviews with the artist, this publication provides the definitive guide to the work of Jock McFadyen (b. 1950). The awardwinning architecture critic Rowan Moore creates a fascinating portrait of the artist, weaving together stories from McFadyen’s life with an in-depth analysis of his art. McFadyen’s story begins in 1950s Scotland, moving via squats in Chelsea during the punk era, to the East End of London, now the subject of many of his largescale landscapes. Moore explores McFadyen’s decision to ‘believe in painting’ in the face of artists who appeared to seek financial reward before all else. This publication celebrates an important contemporary painter, and is generously illustrated with a selection of McFadyen’s works – including Tate Moss, a painting derived from an illicit kayak trip along the canal into London’s future Olympic Park, and his recent depictions of a gargantuan moon hanging above Edinburgh. 9781910350911 Royal Academy of Arts 280 x 240mm. 160pp., 130 col.

I Want to Be A Machine Andy Warhol and Eduardo Paolozzi Keith Hartley Through the early works of Andy Warhol and Eduardo Paolozzi, this book traces the development of their deep fascination with the machine. Looking at the way that both artists began in the late 1940s and the years following, the book illustrates their fascination with popular culture and the methods that they used in creating their art. Common to all their methods of making works was their hand-made quality. Only in the 1960s did the artists make the step to mechanical means to create their own artworks, resulting in the iconic images that are integral to our culture. As Warhol said of himself, there is only surface, with nothing underneath.

African Sculptures and Forms Text by François Neyt. Photographs by Hughes Dubois At the turn of the twentieth century, in particular Gauguin, Picasso, Matisse, and later the Surrealists, then others right up till the present day, Western artists have drawn on the arts of Africa for inspiration. How can this constant impact ever be measured? The same is true for the arts in Africa. Every sculpture carries within it the heritage of a people, culture, and artistic tradition in the originality of its forms. West Africa, Central Africa, and East Africa each has its own set of characteristics, within which the variety of the sculptures – always similar yet also always different – demonstrates the creativity of the ethnic group that created it. This book presents a remarkable collection amassed by a knowledgeable and impassioned art lover that combines sensitivity with quality - a quality of forms meticulously selected among different African cultures. It includes masks and reliquaries carved in Gabon, effigies and statuettes from Congo-Brazzaville and Congo-Kinshasa, and astonishing objects from West Africa, from Mali to Cameroon, the Koro and Mossi peoples, the Ejagham and Ekoi in Nigeria, and the Gouro in the Ivory Coast. An extraordinary collection of artistic forms that well merits its place in the universal patrimony of art. 9788874398317 5 Continents Editions 285 x 240mm. 312pp., 181 col.

Art Brut From Japan, Another Look Sarah Lombardi, Edward M. Gómez, Tadashi Hattori Following the publication of Art Brut du Japon, co-published in 2008 by the Collection de l’Art Brut and editions Infolio, this catalogue presents pieces by twenty-five new Japanese artists from different regions of Japan, whose works drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, and textiles – are largely unpublished. The authors explore the assimilation of Japanese Art Brut into the larger culture from 2008 to the present. As they point out, whereas the notion of mental handicap resides in aesthetic and sociological criteria (these artists are self-taught, and often socially marginalised misfits, draft dodgers, prisoners, psychiatric patients, the elderly, etc. who create outside of the official art system), the condition whether mental or physical is not a criterion in itself. Accompanying an exhibition at Collection de l’Art Brut, Lausanne from November 30, 2018 to April 28, 2019, this catalogue of new Japanese works expands our understanding of Art Brut in a contemporary albeit different cultural setting.

The Farnese Cup Valeria Sampaolo, Luigi Spina A tour de force of a carver’s skill and craftsmanship, the Farnese Cup is the largest cameo hardstone cup to have survived from the ancient world. Thought to have been made in Hellenist Egypt sometime between 300 BC and 30 BC, the Cup was not an archaeological find but rather a treasured piece that travelled over centuries through many hands from Alexandria to Rome to Constantinople and back to Rome before joining the Farnese Collection now housed at the National Archeological Museum of Naples. The Cup, carved out of sardonyx agate, remains the subject of scholarly debate: what do the enigmatic figures in the inner scene mean? And the terrifying face of the Gorgon on the outside? Why was it made? And in what context? Whatever its inherent meaning, the piece itself is commanding, requiring a close-up view of each handcarved detail, the balance and impact of the whole, and the subtle variations in the material itself. This book provides that close-up in a series of photographs and varying perspectives that pull back from the delicate infinitesimal cut to the magnificent, perfect whole. There is no better way – in fact no possible way – for the general reader or connoisseur to fully appreciate the Farnese Cup than through the pages of this meticulously prepared publication. 9788874398515 5 Continents Editions 335 x 240mm. 80pp., 70 col.

Carlo Zinelli Anic Zanzi Carlo Zinelli, called Carlo (1916-1974), is one of the leading figures in Art Brut, along with Aloïse Corbaz and Adolf Wölfli. The book devoted to him by Collection de l’Art Brut, in Lausanne – the public institution that possesses the largest body of work by the Italian artist – gathers together a series of articles on Zinelli by experts in different disciplines. This makes it possible to give due weight to relatively neglected aspects of a rich and diverse opus, such as Carlo’s writings, which mingle with his graphic compositions, well known for their characteristic accumulation of motifs, especially stylised human beings and animals, as well as vehicles. This bilingual book is lavishly illustrated throughout with reproductions of Zinelli’s paintings and many photographs, several of which are by John Phillips, as well as previously unpublished archive material.

Olga Picasso Emilia Philippot, Joachim Pissarro & Bernard Ruiz-Picasso In light of a large selection of previously unpublished personal archives documents, photographs and films - this title explores Picasso’s ‘Olga period’. A favourite model since their meeting in 1917, Olga Khokhlova, a Russian ballet dancer who married Picasso in July 1918, is the most represented female figure in the artist’s work of the late 1910s and 1920s. Picasso renders the ambiguity of his first wife, her beauty, her Ingres-like contours, and her deep, pensive, melancholy, in many of his most famous portraits. The exhibition that this book accompanies brings to light materials conserved by Olga’s family until recently, including memorabilia of her life as a dancer, photos of Picasso, their son Paul, and their daily life together, and their travels to Barcelona, Naples, and Monte Carlo.

Conversation Pieces The World of Bruegel Alexandra van Dongen, Abdelkader Benali, Katrien Lichtert, Sabine Pénot, Lucinda Timmermans & Manfred Sellink In 2019, it will be 450 years since the death of Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1526/28-1569). To mark this anniversary, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna is organising the first ever retrospective of Bruegel’s work, while The World of Bruegel will be shown in the Bokrijk Open-Air Museum. The two institutions are joining forces to bring Bruegel’s masterpiece The Fight Between Carnival and Lent (1559) to life. Important keys in this respect are the numerous everyday objects that are depicted in the painting Fight Between Carnival and Lent. In collaboration with the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam) and the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam), the props that Bruegel depicted have been examined and interpreted from a contemporary perspective.

The Art of Campari Since the nineteenth century, Campari has been responsible for some of the most distinctive and innovative commercial imagery created in Italy. Founded in Milan in 1860, the company quickly began to pursue a dynamic approach to marketing its products, harnessing the new power of the advertising poster. It was the ground-breaking campaigns created by the Futurist artist Fortunato Depero that became Campari’s most celebrated commissions. From the mid-1920s, his bold, witty and geometric designs modernised Campari’s look, creating an unmistakable visual identity; his designs were also the basis of the famous conical Campari Soda bottle, launched in 1932. Drawn from the company’s extensive archives in Milan, the show features Belle Époque posters and original artwork for the revolutionary campaigns of the 1920s, in addition to equally striking examples of post-war graphic design and a range of vintage crates, glasses, plaques and other ephemera.

Fabien Mérelle Works Kathy de Nève Fabien Mérelle is a French artist whose delicate and intricate drawings look realistic but on closer examination convey otherworldly and often disquieting subjects. Stuck to the pregnant belly of his wife, an elephant clinging on his back, or in close embrace with his father, Fabien Mérelle portrays himself as the protagonist in his drawings in an absurd and surrealist play. This book combines the highlights from his oeuvre to date, with a hundred drawings and a selection of sculptures. In 2010, Mérelle he was the first winner of the Prix Canson, awarded annually for outstanding work on paper.

Cacaform Birds Zhu Yingchun Step into the world of Cacaform Birds – a world that exists a half-pace to one side of our own, at the confluence of imagination, art and reality. Within these pages we meet the ‘Glowerspite’ (often dozes in a supine position; converts its tail to a head when startled) and the ‘Mare-away’ (who carries a small black troll on its back and rouses dreamers from night terrors), along with many more: a fantastical aviary brought to life by Zhu Yingchun’s art. The book contains three parts, the first containing doctored photographs that show these birds interacting with sepia cityscapes, alternately goggled at and overlooked by the passers-by. The second introduces us to each individual species through poetic verse, while the reader must carefully unseal the third section in order to reveal how the Cacaform Birds came into being. A blend of bestiary, spotter’s guide and poetic anthology, this book demonstrates that art and amusement can be found everywhere, if you only care to look. 9781788840071 ACC Art Books 200 x 140mm. 294pp., 196 col., 358 b.&w.

Picasso The Sculpture Anna Coliva & Diana Widmaier-Picasso In 1917 Pablo Picasso travelled to Rome and Naples with Jean Cocteau and Igor Stravinskij. During this trip, for the first time, he could admire directly Hellenistic and Roman sculpture, that of the Renaissance and Baroque eras, but also the Roman frescoes of Pompei. The first exhibition dedicated to Picasso’s sculpture to be held in Rome, and its accompanying catalogue, are conceived as a journey through the centuries that chronologically follows the interpretation of forms and different themes – stories and myths, bodies and figures, objects and fragments – in sculpture. The exhibition of masterpieces of the great Spanish master is accompanied by previously unpublished images of his sculpture studios (by Edward Quinn) that narrate the context in which these works were born. The catalogue includes essays that explore the visual and conceptual dialogue between the works of Picasso and works of the past, illustrating and examining over fifty works, some of which have never been exhibited before.

González, Picasso & Friends Laura Stamps, and others Spanish artist Julio González (1876-1942) is considered one of the most important and innovative sculptors of the first half of the twentieth century. This catalogue for a show at the Gemeentemuseum in the Hague includes essays by noted art historians, archival photographs and materials, and illustrations of more than 100 works of art (20 by Picasso). The exhibition charts González’s personal evolution from traditional metalworker in his father’s workshop in Barcelona to avant-garde sculptor in Paris. It focuses on the relationship between González and Picasso, specifically, a 4-year collaboration that started in 1928, which played a decisive role in the development of González’s unique and innovative style. For Picasso, González’s expertise in metalwork opened doors to different forms of expression in sculpture. The accompanying texts also explore González’s relationships with other artists, including Brancusi, whose studio he worked in, Pablo Gargallo, and his son-in-law, Hans Hartung.

Mimmo Rotella Manifesto Germano Celant Rich in critical contributions and a vast iconographic apparatus, this book traces every stage of Mimmo Rotella’s career: from the first abstract works to the informal experiences of the 50s, from the relationship with Pierre Restany’s Nouveau Réalisme to the tangencies with Pop Art and his relationship with America. Extensive detail is dedicated to his most famous research, the one revolving around the décollages and the back of posters, but also to Rotella’s relationship with cities such as New York, Rome, Paris and Milan, with the critics and his contemporaries.This book is published on the occasion of Mimmo Rotella’s centenary, and coincides with the largest ever exhibition dedicated to the artist (Rome, GNAM, 30 October 2018 - 10 February 2019).

Queer!? Visual Arts in Europe Evert van Straaten and Anton Anthonissen Fifty years ago, in 1969, non-heterosexual residents of Amsterdam and New York took to the streets to campaign for their sexual, social, and legal rights. That year marked the start of the development of gay rights all over the world, which in many countries has now culminated in the introduction of same-sex marriage. Since the 1960s, artists all over the world have regularly taken homosexuality as the subject of their work, in a range of different ways. Queer!? is the first book to place the development of this art in a broad European context. The book focuses on male homosexuality and queer performances, and offers a chronological look at the past five decades.

Cabins Hidden Places, Stylish Spaces Almost everyone has indulged in the irresistible notion of carving out a romantic rural refuge in a typically rustic setting, beside a beach or meadow, in the mountains, or other pristine environments. This book brings together the infinite number of possibilities of beautiful and creative cabin designs set in idyllic locations where access to nature is unimpeded. Thereâ€™s a growing trend for living in a small getaway, but that neednâ€™t mean living in cramped, unimaginative spaces. Cabins: Hidden Places, Stylish Spaces showcases the challenges of how small floor plans and compact interiors can be overcome with inventive modern design solutions and the innovative use of technology. Once-basic structures are now evolving into fancy dwellings that offer offgrid living with low impact on the environment, all the while cocooning the occupants in differing levels of comfort, from rustic formats with basic necessities, to some which offer facilities for luxury living. From artist studios to alpine shelters, beachside shacks to rural retreats, this book is an endless source of inspiration for armchair architects and those seeking to create a peaceful sanctuary that fuses distilled ingenuity with eco-friendly style.

Carlo Mollino Architect and Storyteller Michelangelo Sabatino & Napoleone Ferrari Today, Italian architect and designer Carlo Mollino (1905-73) is known chiefly for his furniture designs. He is famous also for his erotic Polaroid photography of the 1960s, which has been subject of many exhibitions and has lost nothing of its great appeal to the fashion world today. Much less attention has so far been given to Mollinoâ€™s architecture, and a comprehensive critical study of his work in this field has been lacking. Yet his built work, although relatively small, constitutes a seminal contribution to modernism that is uniquely marked by a strong relationship with Surrealism. Based on years of research and drawing on rich archival material as well as on Mollinoâ€™s own writings, this new book is the overdue tribute to an extraordinary personality in 20th-century architecture. It features an exemplary selection of his key designs, both built and unrealised, lavishly illustrated with images and reproductions of previously unpublished plans, drawings, and documents. Rounded out with scholarly essays by expert authors, this is a long-awaited addition to the library of architecture lovers, professionals, and scholars.

Your Guide to Downtown Denise Scott Brown Hintergrund 56 Edited by Jeremy Eric Tenenbaum, Angelika Fitz, Katharina Ritter & Architekturzentrum Wien Denise Scott Brown has shaped the course of contemporary architecture since the 1960s. She has chartered a rebellious course across three continents – from childhood in 1930s South Africa to education in 1950s England to teaching and practice in the United States. Scott Brown is both renowned and misunderstood for her designs and theories, many developed in collaboration with her companion in life and work, Robert Venturi. From her 1972 research studio on Las Vegas emerged the legendary book Learning from Las Vegas, whose visuals and social impact remain as important today as then. As a younger generation of architects and urban designers engages the complexity she defined, Scott Brown continues to raise her voice as a fierce critic of a modernism ignorant of context, history, and joint creativity. The time has come to rediscover her undogmatic formal language, careful urban interventions, and adventures in mannerism. This ground breaking new book features previously unpublished material and offers an entirely fresh view of Scott Brown’s achievements as a preeminent architectural designer, urbanist, theoretician, and teacher. A fantastic guide to her life and ideas, it also reveals her humanism, complexity, and wit.

Klip and Corb on the Road
Dual Diaries & Legacies of August Klipstein and Le Corbusier - Eastern Journey Ivan Zaknic In 1911, Le Corbusier (1887-1965) and his friend August Klipstein (1885-1951), a scholar of art history and later renowned art dealer, undertook a grand tour of Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Turkey, and Italy. They both kept a diary of their journey and produced many sketches, drawings, watercolours, and photographs en route, sometimes capturing the same motif and even copying each other’s work. While Le Corbusier’s record was published in 1966 as Journey to the East and has become a classic, Klipstein’s testimony of the expedition remained largely unknown until today. In this new book, Ivan Zaknic explores the creative symbiosis of this friendship. Richly illustrated, including a reproduction of Klipstein’s entire diary, and featuring excerpts from the little known correspondence between Le Corbusier and Klipstein, the book offers an entirely new perspective of this seemingly wellknown undertaking. 9783858818171 Scheidegger & Spiess 245 x 155mm. 268pp., 130 col., 20 b.&w.

Little Known Facts: Shanghai Tower Edited by Ge Qing
For the first time, China has built its own goliath of a building – Shanghai Tower, reaching higher than 600 metres. Its construction lasted 73 months, with more than 500 companies and nearly ten thousand workers involved. Shanghai Tower weighs 850,000 tons, covering an area of 578,000 square metres, 127 floors above ground, 5 floors underground, as well as the world’s fastest elevator. It can accommodate more than 30,000 people.
Revealing the Sacred in Everyday Life Tom Gottsleben and Patty Livingston with Ronnie Shushan. Photographs by Mick Hales
Behind these awe-inspiring statistics are digital codes hidden in its construction, which prove to be shocking. With precise calculation and efficiency of these digital codes, the building’s completion has become a reality. By an analytical reading of the 95 engineering codes, this book treats these codes as carriers, pathways to explain a more accurate interpretation of the building in 5 chapters, with focuses on Appearance, Experience, Underground Exploring, Construction Q&A and Concept Decoding.
Why was an artist with no architectural experience inspired to design and build a five-storey spiral house made of stone? Can a home designed as sacred architecture be a comfortable place to live in the 21st century? How does living in a sacred space support one’s path to awakening? These questions are answered in the story of artist Tom Gottsleben and his wife, Patty Livingston, who spent 20 years building a 5-storey spiral house made of stone. This inspiring, informative and inspirational book tells of Tom’s years exploring stone sculpture and landscaping walls, his lifelong spiritual practice, his accidental discovery of sacred geometry, and how Patty’s pragmatic nature grounded the project in the practicalities of a comfortable home. Although this is the personal story of one couple’s journey and their beautiful home and joyful approach to life, its purpose is to attune readers to seeing and creating sacred space in their own lives.

Japanese Residence studio LOOP Japanese residential buildings are known for their beautiful and cutting-edge designs, green building materials, and rugged construction quality. Japanese people boldly accept innovative design, and the academic community has greatly encouraged the innovation of residences. This has provided excellent conditions for a large number of Japanese architects to experiment with new approaches, and has led to Japanese housing design being a model for other countries. This book brings together more than 60 distinctive Japanese residential and interior designs. These projects illustrate designers who pay great attention to people’s daily lives. The houses in this book offer an exciting look at where Japanese housing design is going.

Le Corbusier: Unité d’habitation “Typ Berlin” Construction and Context Edited by Bärbel Högner, with contributions by Arthur Rüegg, Franz Graf, Hermann-Joseph Pohlmann, Friedemann Gschwind, Anke Zalivako & Florence Cosnefroy Le Corbusier’s Unité d’habitation in Berlin (built 1957-58) stands as an exceptional monument within Berlin’s post-war architecture. The gigantic building with 530 apartments follows the basic ideas of a ‘vertical village’ as envisioned by the architect. However, modifications according to German bylaws led to an outsider position within his oeuvre. This volume explores the exceptional house through multiple perspectives, hereby gathering authors from the fields of architecture, urbanism, art history and cultural studies. For the first time a precise research into the history and construction is given at length, complemented by various design and urbanist contexts and discourses. These include the origin and development of the split-level apartment block itself, a comparison with the four related buildings of the typology Unité d’habitation in France, and Le Corbusier’s colour concept ‘Polychromy’. 9783868595635 JOVIS 240 x 170mm. 256pp., 180 col.

The Auerbach House by Walter Gropius With Adolf Meyer Barbara Happe & Martin S. Fischer In 1924, while Director of the Bauhaus, Walter Gropius built the Auerbach House, his first private house in the Bauhaus mode. Thus, this building is one of the most important milestones for the early years of the Bauhaus. Certainly, the most outstanding feature of the house is the authentic interior colour scheme. It was first discovered during the restoration of the house in the late 1990s that architect Alfred Arndt designed colour schemes for every interior wall. Preserving almost all original details, today the house glows again with the 37 original pastel tones. This book also recounts the moving story of the Auerbachs, a married Jewish couple who helped to shape the social life of the city of Jena, befriended Edvard Munch, fought for women’s rights, and whose house symbolised resistance to the expulsion of the Bauhaus from Weimar.

Developers Who Shaped the Emerging Metropolis Wolfgang Schäche, David Pessier & Daniel Ralf Schmitz Viewing architecture and urban development from the perspective of building contractors is a much-neglected topic to date in architectural and art history. If mentioned at all, they are often even seen as potential adversaries of the architects, as their actions are allegedly determined solely by the maximisation of returns. However, it is the determined entrepreneurial and often very creative spirit of the contractors that allows the constructional realisation of architectural ideas for buildings.
Casa Galina Salvotti Alessandro Franceschini
Designed and built by Leo Salvotti, this small holiday building by the lake – renamed ‘Casa Galina’ by the local inhabitants for its zoomorphic shape – is the best-known building in Calceranica al Lago and represents a unique architectural experiment in Italy. Through pictures from the 1960s, drafts, and 3D reconstructions, alongside the photographic work of Luca Chistè, this book aims to enhance this building’s history. Essays written by experts who insert Casa Galina into the local and Italian architectural history complement the book.
In view of this, this book is dedicated to the multi-faceted actions of six selected building contractors who were active when Berlin flourished to become a world city. The compact articles about their life and work also seek to illuminate their far-reaching, but largely unknown influence on the development of the cityscape and the architecture of Berlin. 9783868595598 JOVIS 287 x 223mm. 224pp., 180 col., 54 b.&w.

Foster + Partners Portfolio 1967-2017 Edited by Tom Wright; essays by Norman Foster and Peter Buchanan Foster + Partners Portfolio is a complete and extraordinary account of the first fifty years of Foster + Partners – a globally renowned studio for sustainable architecture, urbanism and design. Over the past half-century, the practice – founded as Foster Associates in 1967 – has grown into a multi-disciplinary studio, motivated by sustainable design and leading through creativity and innovation. This book provides a beautiful visual record that celebrates the practice’s remarkable breadth of works – both built and unbuilt. For the first time ever, Portfolio features photography of every project completed in the practice’s first five decades, as well as drawings of its most important unrealised designs. Through over 480 carefully edited images – many previously unpublished – the book highlights the enormous contribution the practice has made to a range of design disciplines. Portfolio is delineated into five decade-long chapters, spanning from 1967 to 2017. Photographic pairings, acting as a chronological record of over 340 built works, provide the book’s visual narrative. Drawings of unbuilt works appear at the end of each decade, celebrating the people behind the projects and hinting at the depth of ideas that permeate the practice. By placing projects side-by-side that would not normally be seen together, the book offers new readings of Foster + Partners’ oeuvre. Always thoughtprovoking, often surprising and sometimes humorous, the juxtaposed photographs and drawings have been chosen to illuminate evolving design ideas rather than detail the finished architecture. Connected by colour and light, or contrasted by form and function, the image pairings are shown without the responsibility of spatial explanation. This abstraction puts the viewer close to the creative spark of the architect and offers a unique insight into one of the most inventive studios in the world.
Featuring photography of every completed work from the practice’s first fifty years – from Reliance Controls in 1967 to Apple Park in 2017 – Foster + Partners Portfolio is the only comprehensive book on the complete work of the renowned practice ever published.

The Invisible Mark Élise Van Thuyne Élise Van Thuyne has been working as an interior architect since 2005 and has already renovated over 70 private homes, offices and studios. This book offers a unique insight into her world, in the form of various reportages about some of her projects, which could be described as both invisible and profound. The book opens with a chapter on Élise’s own home, as well as offering a detailed overview of the renovation of the studio of the artists Muller Van Severen. The photos by photographers such as Tine Guns, Heidi Lerckenfeldt, Hannes Vandenbroucke and Adriaan Verweé add depth, creating a subjective and imperfect view of Élise’s projects. These qualities are also typical of Élise’s work: you can recognise her interventions because of the tactile materials and her never-wavering yet unassuming attention to detail.

Made in Cuba Molly Mandell, photography by James Burke In this book, Molly Mandell and James Burke, both writers and photographers, profile 30 creative professionals, makers and entrepreneurs in Cuba – artists employing recycled materials, collectors restoring antique furniture with limited supplies and designers creating an independent magazine with a USB distribution network. As a result of Cuba’s limited trade and imports, a striking and admirable DIY (do-it-yourself) attitude has cropped up throughout the country. This mentality exists well beyond pastimes and craft projects; it is simply a part of day-to-day existence and a testament to the self-reliance, resilience and creativity that permeates the culture. More than a tome on DIY solutions, the book offers an inside look into everyday life on the island. As such, Made in Cuba is not only a source of inspiration for creative professionals but also a personal guide to the country and its people.

The First Golden Age of British Advertising Ruth Artmonsky The ‘golden age’ of advertising is usually seen to be the last decades of the 20th century, centred on Fitzrovia, vast in quantity, swamping the plethora of magazines and newspapers appearing (and disappearing) at that time, and making optimal use of the novelty of commercial television. But the true ‘golden age’ of British advertising was in the decades immediately after the First World War, when zealous entrepreneurs banded together in local clubs and in national bodies to take the activity from the back room of jobbing printers or from being sketched on the back of envelopes on ego-driven managers’ desks to becoming a valid profession. It was in the inter-war years that Titans in the field, such as William Crawford and Charles Higham, not only built their own empires and taught the government how to publicise itself, but even morphed the concept of advertising and publicity from something rather shady and disreputable to having a moral status of being a crucial arm of the nation’s economy and an educator of the masses. This book tells the story of some of these early agencies and the contribution they made.

An account of early advertising agencies, their entrepreneurial directors and original graphic designers and the development of a profession that ascribed to itself not only a crucial role in the economy of the UK but a moral role in advising government and educating the people.
Handmade in Germany Manufactory 4.0 Edited by Pascal Johanssen Manufacturers from Germany enjoy a worldwide reputation. Whether porcelain, watches, organs or writing implements, the origin of artisanal craftsmanship lies in the immaterial cultural heritage of traditional handicrafts training in central Europe. Now, in the twenty-first century, the fundamental processes of change brought about by digitalisation and globalisation are clearly felt by each individual, and manufacturers too must reinvent themselves in view of the global market, relying on future technologies and endeavouring to combine the artwork – the vision of a ‘manufactory 4.0’ – with the classical self-image of the workshop. Globally networked businesses thus arise that are oriented towards a human dimension and mindful of sustainable production. Handmade in Germany provides an insight into the practice and future concepts of the most significant German manufacturers.

Gio Ponti Archi-Designer Edited by Silvana Editoriale Regarded as one of the most influential architects and designers of the twentieth century, Gio Ponti (1891-1979) was a prolific creator, as much interested in industrial production as in handicrafts, who has revolutionised post-war architecture while opening up the prospects for a new way of life. This book covers his entire career from 1921 to 1978, highlighting the many aspects of his work, from architecture to industrial design, from furniture to lighting, from the creation of magazines to a foray into the fields of glass, ceramics and goldsmithery. More than 500 pieces trace this multi-disciplinary journey through architecture, furniture, installations for private homes or public buildings (universities, cathedrals), displaying the creative world of this legendary figure of the Italian scene, whose generosity and enthusiasm have stimulated his contemporaries and still inspire new generations of designers and architects.

What the Fuck! Edited by Luster A collection of astonishing photos from around the world, which the editors stumbled upon during their many hours on the World Wide Web. The book is a cross between a cabinet of curiosities and a documentary on the human species, offering a unique insight into contemporary amateur photography. Photos like these are avidly shared on social media and this book makes you think about the how, where and why of this phenomenon. They are often accompanied by the acronym ‘WTF’ on social media and websites, reflecting the incomprehension of anyone who gazes at these photos as well as the uneasy feeling that overcomes the ‘voyeur’ when he sees them. All these pictures combined emphasise the astounding pace at which countless anonymous spectators are exposed to these extraordinary images, and how the extraordinary increasingly becomes the norm to which we have all become accustomed.

The Book of Ice Cream Lydia Capasso & Simone De Feo This book is the fruit of a collaboration between Lydia Capasso, food writer and lifelong ice cream lover, and Simone De Feo, passionate expert ice cream maker, who make it possible for anyone to make good ice cream at home. You don’t necessarily have to buy a scrumptious ice cream for it to be delicious; ice cream is quick and easy to prepare and can be a perfect ready solution to round off a meal. This book doesn’t just talk about ice cream, it also conveys the essence of family and memories, especially those linked to childhood. Quality of the ingredients is one of the most important aspects of preparation; by using only excellent seasonal and local ingredients, ice cream becomes a narrator for its local area and has the power to tell entire stories on your palate. Devotion to tradition is the solid basis for creativity and a taste for innovation; this is the authors’ philosophy. As a result, their ice cream is digestible, not too sweet, balanced in the mouth and able to leave the palate clean, as the highest Italian artisan tradition dictates.

Porsche 356 Made by Reutter Frank Jung The long and successful cooperation between Porsche and the Stuttgarter Karosseriewerk Reutter & Co. GmbH has always been more than just a marriage of convenience. In 1931 the Reutter coachwork company started building prototypes of what would later be known as Volkswagen on behalf of the Porsche engineering office. In 1949 Porsche gave the order to Reutter to produce 500 bodies for the Porsche sports car, and by Easter 1950 the first Porsche 356 ever to be constructed in Germany was finished. Besides those vehicles made by hand in serial-production Porsche 356 presents many prototypes and special cars made for Porsche up to the point of collective evolution of the later called Porsche type 911. The book’s focus is on the description of the development of a Porsche 356body, colourfully illustrated and detailed as never before. Much of the material used was taken from the Reutter-family archive. Previously unpublished documents and pictures were found in several institutional and private archives, especially the archive of Porsche itself.
Together the companies Reutter and Porsche made automobile history.

Porsche 914 50 Years Jürgen Lewandowski The Porsche 911’s little brother... In 1969 a very special sports car was born. The 914 rose from a marriage of convenience of Volkswagen and Porsche, because both companies wanted a small, modern and affordable sports car in their product range, but for little cost. Thus it was decided to combine the skills of both manufacturers. The result was a light mid-engine sports car with a lively road performance and even 50 years after its launch, it pleases the eye with a fresh design. Back then it was often ridiculed as a ‘housewife Porsche’ or ‘Volks-Porsche’, but now, the 914 has come out of the shadow of its big brother the 911 and has a huge fan base; today it lives on in the Boxster and Cayman models. This volume includes: the result of thorough research in the Porsche and VW archives; rich photography; all technical data; development, production, model history and racing appearances. 9783667114587 Delius Klasing Verlag 265 x 230mm. 176pp., 100 col.

The history of the Porsche 914, written by a renowned motoring journalist. Cars & Motor Vehicles
911 LoveRS Jürgen Lewandowski and WAFT As the first comprehensive homage to the R and RS models, this is a musthave for all Porsche 911 lovers. At auctions they rack up premium prices, but the makers of the 911 R never intended to create objects of speculation for maximum profit. Their main concern was developing vehicles that would appeal to customers because of their uncompromising sportiness. The story begins 50 years ago, when the first Porsche 911 R achieved five new long-distance world records in Monza; and goes on to the latest 911 R – a car that is aware of its history, with racing stripes, houndstooth bucket seats, manual gear change, and a free-revving naturally aspirated engine. In between the first and the latest lie 50 years, numerous models, and a legion of fans.

Landy Love Since 1948 Nadja Kneissler On 29th January 2016 the last Land Rover Defender left the factory halls in Solihull (UK) – a Defender 90 Soft Top with heritage outfit – and went directly to the Jaguar Land Rover Collection exhibition. With this, a great story of success ended: the most original of all Land Rover models had been in mass production for 68 years. In 1948 it was developed for agricultural use, but the robustness of the all-wheel drive vehicle got round quickly. The demand never decreased and there were always new versions and engines. Today, 75 percent of all ‘Landies’ ever built are still in use worldwide. This declaration of love for the British classic presents portraits of all Land Rover generations and of their most passionate owners.

A Millennium of Monochromes From the Great Tang to the High Qing. The Baur and the Zhuyuetang Collections Peter Y.K. Lam, Monique Crick, Laure Schwartz-Arenales More than any other civilisation, China is renowned for its long tradition of ceramic production. These works have been admired and collected over centuries for their outstanding quality and refinement. Now 200 masterpieces from private collections have been brought together for the first time. The Baur Collections in Geneva, formed between 1928 and 1951, and the Zhuyuetang Collection (the Bamboo and Moon Pavilion in Hong Kong), which has been building since the late 1980s, reveal the elegance and variety of imperial monochrome porcelain wares produced during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, which followed on from the Tang (618-907) and Song (960-1279) periods. These restrained pieces – both profane and sacred - exemplify the values of simplicity and modesty espoused by classical Chinese texts. This book will be a key reference on Chinese monochrome ceramics for all lovers of the subject, as well as students, researchers and connoisseurs. 9788874398386 5 Continents Editions 270 x 210mm. 400pp., 240 col.

Gisbert Stach Jewellery and Experiment Pravu Mazumdar, Corinna Rösner & Bernhart Schwenk Gisbert Stach’s (b. 1963) monograph Jewellery and Experiment presents a multifaceted opus from twenty-five years of gold- and silversmithing. In his oeuvre the primarily conceptual artist combines jewellery with video, photography and performance. One focus of his work deals with processes of transformation and experiment – pieces disappear through chemical dissolution, and form is determined by agencies of growth in nature. Stach works with means of alienation and irritation. Ground amber serves as pigment, which he works into jewellery pieces in the form of fish fingers, sliced bread or schnitzel. A further characteristic of his work is the performative act, for example when brooches are pelted with knives. Gisbert Stach is represented in numerous museums and collections, including Die Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum, Munich (DE); Fondazione Cominelli, Brescia (IT); Museo de Arte Moderno, Tarragona (ES); Museum of Arts & Crafts, Itami (JP); Gallery of Art, Legnica (PL); Museum of Bohemian Paradise, Turnov (CZ); Amber Museum, Gdansk (PL). 9783897905320 Arnoldsche Art Publishers 280 x 210mm. 96pp., 131 col.

Asian Chic How Japanese and Chinese Textiles Influenced Fashion During the Roaring Twenties Estelle Niklès van Osselt European fashion was profoundly influenced in the early decades of the 20th century by the style, textiles, patterns and colour combinations of Asian clothing. The discovery of the kimono, with its loose cut, fluid lines and broad range of decorations, captivated the great couturiers of the period. It enabled adventurous women in the 1920s to cast out their corsets and social straightjackets, while offering a new, daring kind of elegance with exotic overtones. From the meeting of these two sartorial cultures has sprung an exhibition and this catalogue, in which the drawings of Paris fashion designers are compared with examples of contemporary East-Asian textiles from the Baur Foundation in Geneva. 9788874398560 5 Continents Editions 270 x 210mm. 256pp., 210 col.

Barron & Larcher Textiles Designers Michal Silver & Sarah Burns During the 1920s and 1930s, Phyllis Barron (1890-1964) and Dorothy Larcher (1882-1952) were at the forefront of a revival in hand block-printing in Britain. As designer-makers they formed a unique partnership, producing innovative textiles and seeing the entire process through from beginning to end. Using whatever materials they could muster – fabric ranging from balloon cotton to prison sheets and velvet, and everyday items such as combs and car mats for printing – and pushing the boundaries of what could be achieved with predominantly natural dyes, these two remarkable women ran a successful business that lasted from 1923 until the outbreak of World War II. Nearly one hundred years on, another special collaboration between the Craft Studies Centre in Farnham, Christopher Farr Cloth and Ivo Prints, has brought a selection of Barron and Larcher’s work back into production. The warm welcome they have received across the globe is a testament to the timeless quality of great design.

………………STOP PRESS……………… Terry O’Neill Terry O’Neill, introduction by Dylan Jones Terry O’Neill is one of the world’s most celebrated and collected photographers. No one has captured the frontline of fame so broadly – and for so long. For more than 50 years, he has photographed rock stars and presidents, royals and movie stars, at work, at play, in private. He pioneered backstage reportage photography with the likes of Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Sir Elton John and Chuck Berry and his work comprises a vital chronicle of rock and roll history. Now, for the first time, an exhaustive cataloguing of his archive conducted over the last three years has revisited more than 2 million negatives and has unearthed unseen images that escaped the eye over a career spanning 53 years. Similarly, his use of 35mm cameras on film sets and the early pop music shows of the 60s opened up a new visual art form using photojournalism, to revolutionise formal portraiture. His work captured the iconic, candid, and unguarded moments of the famous and the notorious – from Ava Gardner to Amy Winehouse, from Churchill to Nelson Mandela, from the earliest photographs of young emerging bands such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace. O’ Neill spent more than 30 years photographing Frank Sinatra, amassing a unique archive of more than 3,000 Sinatra negatives. Add to that the magazine covers, album sleeves, film poster and fashion shoots of 1,000 stars, and Terry O’Neill – comprises the most compelling and epic catalogue of the age of celebrity. 9781788840286 ACC Art Books 325 x 275mm. 352pp., 105 col., 212 b.&w February 2019, reprint , new ISBN £60.00, Hardback

………………STOP PRESS……………… John Carter On Paper Stephen Bann John Carter RA has made some of the most beautiful and lucid artworks of the last fifty years. The apparent simplicity and directness of his abstract reliefs belie an ambiguity that extends even to their definition, as Carter seeks subtly to reimagine the relationship between sculpture and painting. Carter is best known for his ‘wall objects’, shallow sculptures based on abstract mathematical formulae. He begins each work with notebook sketches, moving on to larger, measured drawings. It is these drawings - taken from throughout Carter’s career - that this book presents. Each drawing is a fascinating model of colour abstraction, with commentary by the artist. Carter’s drawings reveal the originality of his mind and the love of exactitude and clarity that drives his practice. His singular contribution to the post-war flowering of British abstraction can clearly be seen here. 9781912520206 Royal Academy of Arts 285 x 245mm. 160pp., 110 col. June 2019 £25.00, Hardback

Summer Exhibition Illustrated 2019 Edited by Jock McFadyen RA The Royal Academy’s legendary Summer Exhibition has been an annual event since 1769, making it the longest-running art exhibition of its kind. The exhibition, which includes paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture, architectural design, photography and models, is the largest open-submission show in the UK. First published in the 1870s, the Summer Exhibition Illustrated presents the highlights of each year’s selection. The Royal Academicians on the Hanging Committee in 2019 include Stephen Chambers, Anne Desmet, Bob and Roberta Smith and Richard Wilson. Together they will decide which artists – professional and amateur alike – will have the chance to display and to sell their work in the galleries of Burlington House, to be seen by thousands of visitors. The painter Jock McFadyen RA will co-ordinate the Summer Exhibition this year. His essay explains his ideas for the show and provides a behind-thescenes glimpse into this idiosyncratic fixture of the London calendar. 9781912520022 Royal Academy of Arts 240 x 170mm. 192pp., 200 col.
