Terry O’Neill Terry O’Neill. Introduction by Dylan Jones
• The ultimate record of the work of a worldclass photographer
• The special edition includes a collectable Terry O'Neill silver gelatin print of Brigitte Bardot (France, 1971). This print has never been exhibited and is only available to purchasers of the special edition
“Terry O’Neill rates rightly as one of the best photographers in the world. He captures something special” Sir Michael Caine 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. O’Neill’s 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.

Out of Focus Pinhole Cameras and their Pictures Peter Olpe. Introduction by Klaus Honnef
• Presents the creative photography resulting from Peter Olpe’s infamous pinhole cameras
Peter Olpe has been manufacturing customised pinhole cameras since 1978. In 2012 he donated 90 of his cameras to the Swiss Camera Museum in Vevey. In images and texts the book Out of Focus presents these cameras and, in addition, tells the story of the author’s ever-changing interests in pinhole photography - a written documentation of Peter Olpe’s work as a designer, photographer, illustrator and teacher.
Niggli ISBN: 9783721208511 225 x 195mm. 432 pp. 850 col. February 2013 £53.00 Paperback
Furthermore, the creative work of 36 photographers is presented, all of whom Peter Olpe invited to take photos with one of his pinhole cameras in a kind of ‘art barter’. His offer was simple. If the resulting images were of a quality to be used in the book and the exhibition in Vevey, the camera would pass into the possession of the artist. During the project, Olpe designed many unique tailor-made cameras for the artists - and just as many diverse and surprising photographs were created using them. Text in English, French & German.
4 PHOTOGRAPHY Kite’s Eye View India Between Earth and Sky Nicolas Chorier
• Unique and spectacular views of the wonders of India, as seen from the air, using cameras carried by kite
Aerial photography is prohibited in India. It can only be done with permission from various government agencies. It is for this reason that there are hardly any substantial books on India from the air. For the first time, Nicolas Chorier achieves this feat by using the fascinating technique of kite photography (taking aerial pictures by using a kite to lift the camera). Roli Books ISBN: 9788174368638 239 x 279mm. 192 pp. 172 col. March 2013 £19.95 Hardback
This book showcases the finest work of the French photographer, who has been shooting in India for many years. Seen here are unique and spectacular views of the wonders of India; jewels such as Amber Fort, Mehrangarh Fort, Nagaur Fort, Pushkar, Chittorgarh, Taj Mahal, Hampi, Mamallapuram and the beaches and backwaters of Kerala. Accompanying the pictures is the photographer’s anecdotal take on his India odyssey. For anyone who loves India and its rich heritage, this lavish book is a sumptuous treat for the eyes.

Couture Dogs of New York Paul Nathan and Nadine Rubin Nathan
• A coffee table book that offers dog lovers more than just portraits of dogs. Couture Dogs of New York takes the reader on a voyeuristic journey into the New York ‘Doggie World’ showing them dogs at home with their owners, dogs dressed to kill out and about at events around the city, and dogs in couture outfits posing in the studio like fashion models
Pelluceo ISBN: 9780985136819 254 x 203 mm. 160 pp. 131 col. £24.95 Hardback
Photographer Paul Nathan has documented New York’s best-dressed dogs, their owners, and the couturiers who design their made-to-order outfits. While socialising with the four-legged, Nathan attended ‘pawties’, ‘puptials,’ and ‘barkmitzvahs’. He photographed married dogs who get around in yellow cabs wearing matching outfits and visited the homes of doggie moms and dads with walk-in closets for their ‘fur children’ filled with enough designer outfits to rival any New York fashionista. And finally he chose fifteen of the most fashionable dogs to invite to his studio along with their favourite couture outfits to pose for this book. The result is a giddily glamorous romp through New York’s ‘Doggie World’ where the city’s most fashionable mutts get dressed to the nines - even if it’s just for a walk around the block.
Generation Ink Williamsburg, Brooklyn Photography by Paul Nathan; Text by Nadine Rubin Nathan A short stroll up Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, reveals a veritable walking art gallery with flesh as medium. Hipsters sit on the stoops of brownstones or on the benches outside cafés and restaurants showing off their ink. Others whizz by on their fixed gear bicycles flashing heavily detailed designs on calves or messages on knuckles. In nearby McCarren Park, young women loll about on the grass in bikinis. Many show off full back pieces, chest pieces, or sleeves - sometimes all three. Their male friends have equally elaborate etchings on arms, legs and torso…
Pelluceo ISBN: 9780985136802 254 x 203 mm. 104 pp. 55 b&w £19.95 Hardback
This is Generation Ink, the generation of 20-somethings who regard tattoos as a form of self-expression and a memento of personal freedom. Photographed in Williamsburg by Paul Nathan, this collection of black and white studio portraits is an unsentimental snapshot of a moment in time. Featuring an essay by Nadine Rubin Nathan.

As Seen in Blitz Fashioning Eighties Style Iain R. Webb
• 1980s fashion and culture, as seen on the •
deeply influential pages of BLITZ, the pioneering ‘80s style magazine A wealth of stunning visuals, text and interviews from the time, plus new commentaries from over 100 key players
In London at the start of the 1980s, three new style magazines emerged to define an era. It was a time of change: after Punk, before the digital age, and at the dawn of a hedonistic club scene that saw the birth of the New Romantics. On the pages of BLITZ, The Face and i-D, a new breed of young iconoclasts hoped to inspire revolution. As BLITZ magazine’s fashion editor from 1982-87, Iain R. Webb was at the centre of this world. His images manipulated fashion to explore ideas of transformation, beauty, glamour and sex. The magazine’s arresting, subversive fashion pages, and its profiles of disparate designers and creative types, let the imagination run free. Lavishly presented here are over 100 BLITZ fashion stories, with previously-unseen archive content, original images and tearsheets. A separate section features original BLITZ interviews with the key designers, and there is also a vast amount of completely new material: Iain R. Webb has gathered the memories of those involved into a gripping oral history of an under-documented time. The cast of characters and contributors includes Leigh Bowery, Amanda Cazalet, Boy George, Princess Julia, Nick Knight, David LaChapelle, Paul Morley and Anna Piaggi. Featured designers include Bodymap, Judy Blame, Dean Bright, Comme Des Garçons, Jasper Conran, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Katharine Hamnett, Hermès, Pam Hogg, Marc Jacobs, Stephen Jones, Calvin Klein, Andrew Logan, Issey Miyake, Franco Moschino, Rifat Ozbek, Antony Price, Vivienne Westwood, and many, many more.

Madame Grès Sculptural Fashion Olivier Saillard
• A remarkable couturier, with a career spanning
half a century, Madame Alix Grès (1903-1993) was known for using delicate pleats which turned ordinary fabric into Grecian-style sculptures. This is the first monograph of her extraordinary work Accompanies an exhibition at the MoMu Fashion Museum, Province of Antwerp from September 2012 - February 2013
Madame Grès launched her design house under the name Grès in Paris in 1942. Formally trained as a sculptress, she produced haute couture designs for an array of fashionable women, including the Duchess of Windsor, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Dolores del Río. Her signature was cut-outs on gowns that made exposed skin part of the design, yet still had a classical, sophisticated feel. She was renowned for being the last of the haute couture houses to establish a ready-to-wear line. Olivier Saillard is currently director of Galliera, the Paris Museum of Fashion. A renowned fashion historian, he has been the curator of many successful exhibitions. He published A History of the Bathing Suit and more recently An Ideal History of Contemporary Fashion in which he gathered and analysed the most important fashion shows from 1970 to today. Furthermore, Olivier Saillard has been the graduated guest of the Villa Kujuyama in Japan. He is completing poetic work in the form of performances at every haute couture fashion week that present the garment, as the main topic of a sensitive and reflective work.

Lucienne Day In the Spirit of the Age Andrew Casey
• In-depth study of a key major British textile designer and ceramicist
This is the first in depth study to look at all aspects of the work of Lucienne Day, bringing together her work in textiles, wallpaper, carpets and ceramics from both Britain and Europe. Andrew Casey has uncovered new research and unpublished material from the Lucienne Day Archives and the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation, and has interviewed members of her family including her daughter, her design associates, members of her staff and specialist museum curators in the UK and overseas. Lucienne Day is perhaps best celebrated for her work in textile design, but her work in carpet designs, wallpaper and ceramics was just as influential, and the book features an extensive range of illustrations, archive photography and for the first time examples of her own original art work for both textiles and carpet designs as well as pattern book illustrations for her ceramic designs. Andrew Casey is an expert in post-war design, particularly ceramics, and is the author of several books including Susie Cooper: Pioneer of Modern Design (ACC, 2002) and Art Deco Ceramics (ACC, 2008).

Costumes and Textiles of Awadh From the Era of Nawabs to Modern Times Sushama Swarup Awadh has historically been among the most important regions in India, and holds a vital position with respect to the development of Indian fashion. As such, fashion and history are not mutually distinct, but rather intricately intertwined. This book takes a fascinating journey, connecting dates and events to the evolution of costumes, textiles, colours, motifs and ornamentations from the eighteenth century up to present-day India. It recaptures the ambience of the Nawabi Era and the British Raj in Awadh, and makes them relevant for contemporary times.
Couture Graphique From Label to Total Look José Teunissen This magnificent book shows the development that the big fashion brands such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton have undergone over the last 30 years. Since the eighties of the past century, every fashion house has had its own art director. This has shifted focus from pure clothing towards a ‘Total Look’: a clear visual style that reflects the image of the fashion brand. This development has made fashion accessible for a much larger audience. Graphic design, architecture, shop design, websites and movies create the total image of a brand. Fashion is everywhere, making Couture Graphique a magnificent, visual book.

The first volume in the series on Twentieth-Century Decorative and Applied Arts is dedicated to what is known in Italy as ‘Stile Liberty’, or Liberty style. Flowers, ribbons, garlands, dragonflies, butterflies and graceful young women dancing, followed by a host of curvilinear, sinuous and spiralling forms: this was Liberty, the new style that at the dawn of the twentieth century, by creating a rupture with traditional artistic forms, spread throughout Europe. Although the movement was short-lived, the First International Exposition of Modern Decorative Arts held in Turin in 1902 showed that it numbered excellent interpreters in every single field. Chini’s ceramic works, furniture designed by Quarti and Basile, Mazzucotelli’s wrought iron objects, glass-work by Buffa and Cambellotti: pieces that are now much sought after by private collectors and museums.

Nurtured by the aesthetic-social critique undertaken by the British Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau contrasted the heaviness of mechanical production with the ingenious elegance of forms inspired by pure and alluring lines, based on plant forms. Enlivened by nostalgic fin de siècle decadence, the movement’s unique style was built upon the transposition of industrial materials and techniques into the pristine elegance of the vernacular handicraft tradition. The wealth of images in this, the second volume in the Twentieth-Century Decorative and Applied Arts series, illustrates the artists’ approach, and the objects themselves, as well as the birth and evolution of Art Nouveau in the countries that contributed most to the success of this new aesthetic - France, Belgium, Spain, Hungary, United States, etc. Contents: The Legacy of the Arts and Crafts movement; Fin-de-siècle Decadentism; The Invention of the Modern; Vernacular Expression between Identifying Spirit and Romantic Nationalism; Japonisme; The Forms of Nature; Towards the Total Artwork; Catalan Modernismo; The Lesson of Horta and van de Velde; The French Way; The 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris; Focus on: The Paris Métro, Tassel House.
14 DECORATIVE ARTS Gallé Lamps Alastair Duncan and Georges de Bartha
• A comprehensive survey of the glass lamps designed by a towering figure of the Art Nouveau era
Although renowned for his work as a verrier, lamps did not form a significant part of Gallé’s repertoire in glass until immediately prior to 1900. Indeed, only in the last few years of his life does it appear that he realised the full aesthetic potential of opalescent glass viewed by transmitted light. In an Art Nouveau context, Gallé’s creations reached their apogee between 1900 and his death in 1904, a brief period during which he adapted the shape of much of his glassware to its theme. Vases decorated with lilies became lily-shaped in a marriage of form and function.
Antique Collectors’ Club ISBN: 9781851496716 300 x 237mm. 250 pp. 500 col. June 2013 £50.00 Hardback
This comprehensive volume catalogues the full range of light fixtures produced by the Gallé cristallerie, from those made during his lifetime to those manufactured for more than twenty-five years after his death. Including table, bedside, hanging and wall models, Gallé Lamps reveals the extraordinary variety of thematic shade-and-base combinations introduced by the firm: butterflies, moths, dragonflies, swallows and eagles hover, flutter, glide or swoop over flora and mountain vistas in a seemingly endless interplay of Nature’s decorative motifs. This volume is a companion to Gallé Furniture ISBN: 9781851496624.

Designing with Black Architecture & Interiors Stephen Crafti
• Daring, dramatic and full of inspirational ideas

Stephen Crafti has always been drawn to black houses, irrespective of the materials they are constructed in, be they zinc, timber or simply painted. Unlike most houses, which scream for attention, black houses sit quietly, accentuating the often-verdant landscape. There is also a sense of calm and tranquillity with a black home. Crafti doesn’t live in a black house, but he recently upgraded a 1930’s home. ‘Everything I touched was changed to black, from the timber fences to the timber floorboards’. He even added black curtains and planted black bearded irises in his garden. Using black seemed to unify disparate elements in and around his home. While there are numerous black features in Crafti’s home, his ideal scenario would be to live in a contemporary black house, with black furniture and black walls. And maybe even a garden filled with black plants. This book, showcasing black houses, is the starting point to this goal and will be organised according to the following themes: Black Exteriors; Living in Black; Details of Black; Kitchens & Dining in Black; and In Black And White.

Soviet Modernism 1955-1991 An Unknown History Edited by Architekturzentrum Wien Az W
• A unique documentation of modern Soviet architecture, presenting the findings of the first ever comprehensive research on the topic carried out
• Published by the renowned Architekturzentrum Wien Az W, The Vienna Centre of Architecture, where the exhibtion Soviet Modernism 1955-1991 from November 2012 to February 2013
While Constructivism and Stalinist architecture are familiar to a specialist audience, knowledge of postwar Soviet Modernism in architecture is very limited. Much of the former Eastern Bloc's architecture is regarded as monotonous and uninteresting. Yet a closer look reveals that hardly any linear development of a formal architectural vocabulary can be ascertained. A research project undertaken by the Architekturzentrum Wien Az W explores the architecture of the 14 former Soviet republics between the 1950s and the end of the Soviet Union in 1991. It is the first ever attempt to provide a comprehensive inventory and contextualisation of this second modern movement, tracing local particularities and singular evolutionary processes and also the signatures of individual architects. In its main section the new book Soviet Modernism 1955-1991 presents the 14 republics in four chapters: Baltic States, Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia. Each country is covered by a factsheet including a concise historical overview, a research and travel report and a scholarly essay. Additional essays investigate Soviet urban planning and large-scale housing programs and typologies of large Soviet cities. A catalogue raisonné of around 400 important buildings and a bibliography complete the book..

Rural Modern Rural Residential Architecture Russell Abraham Modernism crashed into the American consciousness right after the Second World War. While it offered a new design paradigm that would transform the urban landscape, modernism was a slow burn for residential architects. A group of innovative architects in the USA took Bauhaus modernism and gave it a vernacular face. Russell Abraham dubs this style ‘rural modernism’ - a modern aesthetic with a vernacular palette. The result of several ingenious ideas blended together to create a contemporary, sustainable and highly liveable architecture, these houses respect the past while looking forward to the future.

For Those About to Power Abdul Vas The first monograph by Abdul Vas, For Those About to Power, surveys most of the work that the artist has created during his dedication to AC/DC, the Australian rock group. The paintings, drawings, collages, and murals that Vas has produced over a decade are the result of his submersion into a subculture whose nonlinear, hallucinatory aesthetic seems an attempt to mimic AC/DC’s entirely subjective and frenzied universe of contemporary mythology characterised by rebellion, pleasure, and power.

David Bomberg, Dora Carrington, Mark Gertler, Paul Nash, C.R.W. Nevinson and Stanley Spencer - six of the most important and distinctive British artists of the twentieth century - had all been students together at the Slade School of Art in London. They formed part of what their drawing teacher, Henry Tonks, described as the school’s last ‘crisis of brilliance’. For young British artists working in the years immediately before the Great War it was an exciting and demanding time as various Modernist movements fought for precedence: Primitivism, Futurism, Cubism, Vorticism and Expressionism. Each of the six artists found their own distinctive response. David Boyd Haycock’s group biography, A Crisis of Brilliance, was published to much acclaim in 2009. Jenny Uglow wrote in her review in the Guardian, ‘We should call for a joint exhibition of [their] work, to complement the moving portrayal of their lives in this engrossing and enjoyable book.’ This book marks the fulfilment of that wish. It features Haycock’s selection of 70 works, ranging from their early student drawings, watercolours and oil paintings, to the first great mature works that they made during and immediately after the Great War of 1914-18.

32 ART REFERENCE Aldeburgh A Portrait Tim Coates A look at the history, culture and personalities of this famous Suffolk town, through archive photographs, maps, portraits and contemporary paintings. Tim Coates’ accessible text takes the reader from the earliest accounts of Roman occupation, through the development of maritime trading links (and the associated piracy) to the prosperous Tudor era when the famous Moot Hall was built, to the industrial expansion of the Victorians and the development of the town as an upmarket holiday resort.

The book also examines the lives of several of the sons and daughters of Aldeburgh, namely George Crabbe, the 19th-century poet whose evocative verses (in particular Peter Grimes) inspired Benjamin Britten; also the Garrett family, whose best known members were perhaps Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (the first woman doctor) and Millicent Garrett (later Fawcett) who was a leading campaigner for women’s suffrage. The cultural heritage of the town is covered in depth, as many writers and thinkers lived and worked in the town, such as HG Wells, JM Barrie, Thomas Hardy, and, more recently, Ruth Rendell. The most famous resident of the town was Benjamin Britten, who, with the tenor Peter Pears, founded the Aldeburgh Festival, and developed the Garrett family’s old industrial site into the Snape Maltings music centre, with two concert halls and a music school.
Dartmouth An Enchanted Place Joslin Fiennes Painting and sculpture, poetry and adventure, the present and the past, the local and the cosmopolitan, all belong to this exploration of the Dartmouth area. Extraordinary natural beauty is captured in art going back to the 17th century; a multi-layered and often glorious past is discovered behind modesty today. At the end of the road, the area is a springboard to a highway by sea, and modern yachtsmen sail off in the wake of kings and pilgrims, crusaders and explorers, emigrants and invasion forces.

Much of the cultural heritage uncovered in this book is surprising and new. John Masefield, Robert Graves, Flora Thompson and Nevil Shute as well as Agatha Christie were inspired by the Dart; with Queen Victoria came the Prince of Wales and his friends who spawned little-known local inventors of marine engines, motor-cars and gliders. The book displays Lucien Pissarro’s pastoral vision and publishes for the first time delicate sketches by Turner; it explores how the same stretch of the Dart inspired the pre-Christian vision behind Bridget McCrum’s minimalist modern sculpture and Graves’ writing on the same mythology. Dartmouth is all about looking again at this quiet coastal area - through the eyes of the artists who dress it up and the voices of the historians and writers who write it down. It is about the people who made a unique place and those who have preserved it.

• An excellent introduction to the career of John Piper, the celebrated twentieth-century painter and designer
This, the newest title in the highly acclaimed Design Series focuses on the work of John Piper (1903 - 1992). Piper remains something of an enigma: an antiquarian who was among the pioneers of non-representational art in Britain; an abstract painter who drew his inspiration from the paintings of Turner and mediaeval stained glass; and a romantic with a penchant for geometric design. Despite, in formal terms, coming to art late, Piper became one of the most diverse designers of his generation. Up until the 1951 Festival of Britain, his work had been almost entirely graphic. Indeed much of his design particularly for the theatre, murals, mosaics, textiles and tapestries - was to remain graphics based. However, Piper was also to enter into rewarding partnerships with Patrick Reyntiens, David Wasley and Joseph Nuttgens designing stained glass; with Geoffrey Eastop in ceramics; and, most explosively of all, with Ron Lancaster and John Deeker, for some of the greatest pyrotechnic displays that Britain has witnessed since the 18th century. Commissioned by the War Artists Advisory Committee in 1940, Piper’s two paintings of the ruins of Coventry’s St Michael’s Cathedral, along with his St Mary-le-Port, Bristol are among the most iconic images of World War II. However, mediaeval stained glass was perhaps Piper’s most enduring passion; the slabs of glass, the leading and the richness of colour of these windows, were to provide a fundamental source of inspiration not only for his paintings and designs for stained glass, both figurative and abstract, but also for work in other media.

Encyclopedia of Russian Stage Design 1880-1930 John E. Bowlt, Nina D. Lobanov-Rostovsky, Nikita D. Lobanov-Rostovsky and Olga Shaumyan Why collect Russian stage designs? Why write about them? Answers may vary, but surely a primary response must be that, quite simply, Russian stage designs are immensely pleasing to the eye. They vibrate, and scintillate with colour, texture, and movement. Furthermore, through their daring inventions, Russian artists of the first thirty years of the 20th century transformed, profoundly and permanently, our perception of stage design and hence of the theatre. They belonged to an extraordinarily creative generation of impresarios, dancers, actors, patrons, and critics who inspired or at least made a major contribution to the international renaissance of the art of the stage, and in particular areas, e.g. the teaching and performing of ballet, their influence is still present today.

William Bouguereau (1825-1905) was a highly important and influential French academic painter, who taught a long succession of gifted students, primarily at the private Académie Julien in Paris. Bouguereau wanted to become a serious history painter and his efforts paid off in 1850 when he won the much coveted Prix de Rome (meaning that the French government paid him to stay in Rome and study art). After his studies in Italy, he established his reputation in Paris as a premier history painter, portraitist, and decorator of churches during the 1850s and 1860s. He was elected to the Académie des Beaux-Arts in 1876 and remained an important and influential member for 30 years. His large output of Salon paintings was consistently praised by critics, often purchased by the French state, and frequently reproduced in the press. He won numerous awards throughout his career and can be seen as the epitome of the French Academy.

The idea for this book, and its companion volume, The Louvre Nude Sculptures was born in the course of a visit through the Louvre, when Catherine Belanger ventured to call the Louvre ‘the biggest brothel in the world’. Jointly, with author Jean Galard and photographer Lois Lammerhuber, she selected key paintings spanning five centuries to illustrate the fascinating art of depicting nudity and the artists’ struggle for acceptance of the nude in art and society. Lois Lammerhuber resorts to these ‘models’ to translate them into the language of fashion, nude and advertising photography, reading their body language and interaction in a way reminiscent of artists like Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Horst P. Horst or Herb Ritts - sensual and unexpected. Text in English & French.

most famous museum in the world, an exceptional photographic interpretation in 162 sensational pictures, a tribute to sensuality in art The ideal gift book for art lovers, a sophisticated and surprising approach to nudity and sensuality in major sculptures of the Louvre The sophisticated design of the book, reminiscent of bronze and referring to the haptic character of sculpture, makes the book itself a sculptural work of art
In this stunning book, key works illustrate the artistic approach and the representation of the nude in the Western world from 7th century BC to 1897. Lois Lammerhuber detaches the nudity, sensuality and sexuality of the sculptures from the context of their artistic intention, conceiving them as ‘material’ in a fictional photography studio and recreating them in his photographs. The images are accompanied by Jean Galard’s reflections on this approach from an art-historical and philosophical angle. Text in English & French.

Isabel Azevedo Drouyer Photography by Rene Drouyer For centuries, Buddhist monks, using magical incantations and spells, have been covering people’s bodies with indelible ink marks in the belief that they will attract luck, wealth, and blessings, and provide protection against evil spirits. Known in Thailand as Sak Yant, these ancient tattoos are today experiencing a revival in popularity. Filled with large-format photographs, this book provides a unique window into their world, and in doing so illustrates one of the last living examples of authentic traditional tattooing.

meteorites from the Moon and Mars, and what happens when huge meteorites, - asteroids - collide with Earth Written by Christian Köberl, one of the most eminent experts on meteorite impact craters
Stones that fall from the sky have been known for millennia, but only during the past 200 years was their extraterrestrial origin confirmed. Today scientists know that meteorites, these inconspicuous gray or brown rocks, are the only witnesses of the origin of the solar system (and the Earth) available to us. Their composition provides invaluable information on the origin of the chemical elements, as well as when and how our planetary system formed. This book recounts the history of meteorite research, tells us how and where to find and identify them, their classification and composition, including the exciting story of meteorites from the Moon and Mars, and what happens when huge meteorites, the asteroids, collide with the Earth. Plentiful colour illustrations come from the huge meteorite collection at the Natural History Museum in Vienna, which is also the oldest in the world. Text in English & German.

We always complain about the weather no matter if it is hot and sunny or wet and cold. But weather can all too easily make the difference between plenty and famine, survival and death. Technically the term ‘weather’ refers to the condition of the atmosphere in a particular place and time as opposed to climate, which refers to the overall tendency of an area. So while today the weather might be hot and sunny, the climatic tendency may actually be cool and wet. This fascinating book covers all aspects of the weather from the beauty of clouds, auroras and sunsets to the aweinspiring and often terrifying tornadoes, typhoons and lightning storms that affect many parts of our Earth. The author guides you through the process of forecasting weather, what causes various weather conditions, the impact of solar flares, the threat of climate change and finally urges us to look again at the wonder surrounding us. Clearly written and extensively illustrated, this book is for students, for amateur meteorologists or for anyone who wants to learn more about the weather that affects us all.

Reine Sammut Mediterranean Cuisine Text by Anne Garabedian. Photographs by Jean-Philippe Garabedian An authentic Provençal cooking class, as if you were really there! Twelve cooking classes, using twelve fresh products, creating menus with asparagus, cuttlefish, octopus & squid, purple artichoke, mussels, spices, zucchini, tomatoes, sardines, potatoes, cooking in foil, stuffings, and a menu for a special occasion. Reine Sammut takes us into her kitchen and her living space, introduces us to her favourite products and suppliers. For each recipe she shows us the main steps, the tips and techniques. Reine Sammut arrived in Provence when she was 14. She really started loving and preparing Provençal food when she met her husband and his family and started to discover the rest of the Mediterranean: Tunisia, Malta, Sicily. She started to work at the Fenière de Lourmarin alongside Claudette, her husband’s mother. Little by little she acquired the knowledge and techniques to be able to cook fish, couscous, pastries… Claudette can pass the restaurant to her daughter-in-law. Every Thursday Reine opens her kitchen and gives cooking lessons at the Cour de la Ferme. Apparently her cooking classes are a powerful antidepressant! Anne Garabedian was born in the kitchen (figuratively speaking!). Her grandfather was a pastry-chef and when she was 10 she was already discovering and copying out her great grandmother’s recipes. Very early on, she tried all sorts of sweet recipes and tested them out on her family, with some successful and some less so. Much later she learned how to make taramasalata, sweet bread, ravioli: they were her first cooking lessons and her first reportages. Jean-Philippe Garabedian is a photographer and a cook. During the cooking classes he manages to overcome his desire to take up a whisk or a ladle and hold onto his camera lens instead…

48 CHILDREN’S BOOKS Edward Lear’s Alphabet of Nonsense Edward Lear
• Published to mark the 200th birthday of Edward Lear • The illustrations are facsimiles of the original 1860 document recently acquired by the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

Edward Lear, born in 1812, was a British artist, illustrator, author, and poet, renowned today primarily for his literary nonsense, in poetry and prose, and especially his limericks. Lear seems to have begun making nonsense alphabets in the mid-1850s, usually for children of his friends and acquaintances. The present alphabet was created for Ruth Decie. It is one of the most charming of all Lear’s alphabets, typically drawn on sheets of blue writing paper backed with linen. The alphabet was bequeathed to the Ashmolean by a descendant of Ruth Decie, James Farquharson, who died in December 2011. This beautiful facsimile features a short introduction about Edward Lear, written by the Ashmolean curator, Colin Harrison. Following this is a replica of each page of the original publication featuring the letters of the alphabet with the short poem underneath each drawing. This is accompanied by each poem again, this time written in a more accessible font so that children may read this too. The Ashmolean have utilised this recent acquisition to recreate a stunning classic.
All Aboard with Joanna! Kathrin Schärer All Aboard with Joanna! begins by inviting young readers into the fantastical world of creating books by showing a black and white sketch of the artist’s work table as she faces the blank page. The reader can then follow the interaction between the fictional character, the little pig Joanna, and the artist. A train and its numerous passengers become the setting for this beautifully illustrated narrative. As the story unfolds, Joanna has many requests to make to her creator: from her clothing (that she would prefer to be stripey), to catching up with another train to see who could possibly be inside it. By the end of this delightful story where the author even teases Joanna - drawing a big bad wolf and a huge monster! - Joanna is finally content when she gets the right companion to spend the rest of the trip with.

His images open the doors to hidden universes, usually inaccessible to the public, highly protected as they are against accidents and terrorism. Abandoned worlds of concrete and steel reveal themselves to us, cathedrals of the modern age, temples of an energy-devouring society that radiate a cold logic. His images of imposing halls, endless corridors, massive floodgates and cryptic signs are as intimidating as they are fascinating.

Smoking Kids is the title of Frieke Janssens’ photographic project. Fifteen children aged between four and nine pose in a startling adult way in front of the camera, each seemingly smoking a cigarette, cigar or pipe (which in reality has been skilfully Photoshopped into place).

Raphael: The School of Athens
Titian: Sacred and Profane Love
The fresco The School of Athens in the Vatican stages a scene with 58 characters, among whom the ancient world’s most famous thinkers can be identified. This book presents the assorted theories of who’s who in the fresco and examines the secrets of the great work.
The title of the masterwork painted by Titian, Sacred and Profane Love, is of little help in solving the mystery surrounding the painting. It is unquestionably a celebration of love, but what is the relationship between the woman dressed in white and the woman who is naked?

Van Eyck: The Arnolfini Portrait
Veronese: The Wedding at Cana
What makes The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck one of the best-known works of art in the world? What mystery do we happen upon when we tiptoe into the bridal chamber? Within the modest dimensions of an “intimate” scene, the artist manages to invite us almost physically into the room.
Paolo Veronese’s dazzling painting The Wedding at Cana was commissioned to be hung in the refectory of the Benedictine monastery of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. Veronese transforms a religious scene into a worldly event, veering from realism to the fantastical, in a virtuoso display of his own vision of art and life.

72 ART REFERENCE Pompeii: The Ages of Pompeii Fabrizio Pesando Pompeii is one of the great legends of the modern world. The name immediately brings to mind the day in 79 AD when the eruption of Vesuvius put an end to the city’s life. The city already had a very long history when this occurred; the passing of ages left its imprint on the evolution not only of painting - the four Pompeian styles - but also of architecture and construction techniques. In addition to recounting the history of Pompeii, this work is designed for the precise purpose of accompanying the reader in the discovery of this variety and these traces, thus transforming their journey into a series of very interesting surprises.

Pompeii: The Art of Loving Cinzia Dal Maso Does Pompeii really deserve its reputation as a city of vice ‘punished’ by the eruption for its sinful ways? The Romans had a less inhibited attitude towards sex than we do. In this respect the Pompeians were no more dissolute than any other citizens of the empire. At the same time, however, there was something very particular and odd about the city. The sheer number and variety of sexual references in Pompeii in 79 AD has no parallel in the known Roman world. The possibility that the city was something more than a simple sea port, is an intriguing hypothesis and one this book illustrates.

Raphael, Goya, or Ingres did not produce or design footwear, but they all ‘recorded’ shoes, contributing to a history of footwear and at the same time creating fashion archives of shoes that people stepped out in between 1280 and 1863.

Folinsbee Considered Kirsten M. Jensen John Fulton Folinsbee was a very successful artist virtually from the time he started painting, fresh out of school, in 1915. By the 1930s he was considered one of the leading artists of his generation along with names such as Leon Kroll and Thomas Hart Benton. By the 1950s however, Folinsbee’s career was in commercial decline and his work has been overlooked by art critics and historians through most of the rest of the 20th Century. It is as a regional (New Hope) Impressionist that he is still best known, though his transition to an Expressionist style is perhaps the most intriguing and least explored of the large body of work he created right up to his death in 1972.

Mao’s Golden Mangoes and the Cultural Revolution Edited by Alfreda Murck In August 1968, the Pakistani foreign minister visited Beijing and presented Chairman Mao with a crate of mangoes. Apparently, Mao sent the mangoes as a gift to the “Worker-Peasant Mao Zedong Thought Propaganda Teams”. The exotic fruit were distributed to various factories, where they were celebrated by the workers as tokens of Mao’s love and worshipped as a kind of religious relic. This is an interesting case study on how symbols are constructed by politics, exploring Chairman Mao's Mangoes’ reverberations throughout Chinese culture for years to come.

(R)EVOLUTION Albert Niemeyer Quietly, but steadily, Albert Niemeyer has been paving the road to success as an artist for over 30 years. Intrigued and fascinated by the pictorial freedom of expression in the art of Van Gogh, Dalí, Chagall, Picasso and Karel Appel, Albert Niemeyer depicts his subjects with the same stylistic liberty. Niemeyer’s vibrant works can be photorealistic, abstract expressionist or even hint at cubism and futurism. Every work is painted as if it were his first one. This typifies Niemeyer as an artist: idiosyncratic, sincere, inquiring and ever developing. Text in English & Dutch.
Herman van Nazareth Piet Boyens Graphic artist, painter, sculptor, designer of wall textiles,... the artistic achievements of Herman van Nazareth, alias of Herman van Aerden, are manifold. Van Nazareth’s abstract-expressionist imagery is unpretentious, rough and powerful, faceless but with a distinct voice. His pictorial and sculptural language is restrained and universal and goes back to the basic shapes, sometimes hinting at ethnic art. His work is internationally acclaimed and for the first time his extraordinary output has been collected in a comprehensive catalogue.

India Partitioned The Other Face of Freedom Mushirul Hasan The Partition of India cast its lengthy shadows on two generations of the subcontinent. Drawing on short stories, poems, satirical writings, eye-witness accounts, and interviews, these two volumes document the anguish and sense of betrayal at the freedom gained. These writings are a reminder of how partition cruelly displaced millions, divided India’s past, wrecked its civilisational rhythm and unity and left behind a seemingly constant legacy of hostility, bitterness, and rancour between the people and government of India and Pakistan.

Flowers & Imagination Gillian and Alan Wheeler
• A compilation of stunning floral designs by acclaimed British floral designer Gillian Wheeler
‘Flowers are the most amazing and beautiful creations. Nothing on earth can match their colours, textures and fragrances. Flowers, singly or massed, have a vibrant life that along with foliage gives the designer an incomparable paint box of colour and an endless series of sculptural forms.’ These are the exact words of Gillian Wheeler, founder and principal of The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers situated in the heart of London. In this book she proves to be an imaginative artist, a designer who can handle the rich palette flowers offer very well.
Stichting Kunstboek ISBN: 9789058564337 280 x 280mm. 144 pp. 250 col. February 2013 £42.50 Hardback

This book is testament to the imaginative interaction between different arts - floral art and paper art.

Even if you are not the most handy or craft-minded person, you won’t be able to resist trying your hand at some of these projects; they are simply too beautiful and too clever.

Shirley Temple says she stopped believing in Santa when he asked for her autograph; these sun-kissed photographs created that demand” The Independent on Sunday
Artists’ Textiles (ACC, ISBN: 9781851496297, £29.95): “Artists’ Textiles: A Masterpiece in Every Home” The Sunday Telegraph
