Talking about a creative session is like talking about a boxing match. It happened because there was a little bit of magic in the room that night. Brian Duffy
Also available: Duffy, ISBN: 9781851496570 $85.00 Duffy, ISBN: 9781851496587 $400.00, hardcover, slipcase, special edition, limited to 200 copies, with print, non-returnable
Duffy’s most famous photograph dates from the 1970s and is the iconic and revolutionary cover of David Bowie’s album Aladdin Sane. The shot became the defining look of Bowie’s long career, and has been referred to as the Mona Lisa of pop. The photographer and the rock star collaborated on four other projects: Ziggy Stardust, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) and Lodger. They worked together during the pivotal years of Bowie’s career; when the king of glam was assuming and discarding extraordinary personas, Duffy was capturing them all. Written by David Bowie’s biographer Kevin Cann, this book includes anecdotes and stories from those attending the shoots.
Terry O’Neill’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Album Terry O’Neill
chronicle of rock ‘n’ roll history as seen through the lens of master photographer Terry O’Neill. 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. He photographed the giants of the music world both on and off stage capturing those on the frontline of fame: David Bowie, Elton John, Led Zepplin, Amy Winehouse, Dean Martin, The Who, Janis Joplin, AC/DC, Eric Clapton, Sammy Davis Jnr., The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Chuck Berry and The Beatles - to name only a few. O’ Neill spent more than 30 years with Frank Sinatra as his personal photographer gaining unprecedented access to the star. He took some of the earliest known photographs of The Beatles and then forged a lifetime relationship with members of the band that allowed him to photograph their weddings and other private moments. It is this contrast between public and private that makes Terry O’Neill’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Album such a powerful document. Without a doubt, Terry O’Neill’s work comprises a vital chronicle of rock ‘n’ roll history. To any fan of music or photography this book will be a must buy.

Jesse Jackson, who recorded spoken word albums on Stax’s Respect Records label, to Sam Moore of the indelible soul duo Sam & Dave, Carla Thomas, Steve Cropper, B.B. King, Bobby Rush, and many others, including the lesser known but equally vital session players, writers, engineers, publicists who contributed to what is now world renowned as The Memphis Sound.

National Geographic photographer Gerd Ludwig, made nine visits to Chernobyl over a period of 20 years; this is his powerful record of a human and environmental tragedy. Through the perspective of the victims living with the emotional and physical aftermath, to the Exclusion Zone created by a massive evacuation, to the abandoned neighboring city of Pripyat, it is a record of almost unbelievable suffering and desolation. Working under enormous time and radiation pressure, Ludwig ventures deeper into the belly of the beast than any other photographer, documenting the destroyed reactor No.4. Using documents, that until recently have been classified, from the CIA, U.S Government Foreign Press Monitoring, Department of Energy, Department of Defence, GAO and United States Congress of the disaster, The Long Shadow of Chernobyl becomes an even more important voice in the continuing political, environmental and economic arguments around the safety of using nuclear energy, particularly in light of the Fukushima disaster in Japan 25 years later.
Everyone has heard of the Nobel Prize, yet many are unfamiliar with the faces of those who have won the honor. One man (apart from King of Sweden) who knows all the living Nobel laureates personally is Peter Badge, who has spent 13 years traveling the world, on commission to photograph these respected and illustrious luminaries.To date, the Berlin photographer has met and photographed more than 400 of them, usually in locations they have chosen and in natural and relaxed poses that seem to bring their character to the fore. Lavishly illustrated with some amazing photographs, it is also a travel book, as Badge’s meetings with the Nobel laureates were far more than just photo shoots. He took a look behind the scenes, got to know the people behind the achievements, and found himself in unusual situations.

The Moscow Metro was staged by Stalin as a heroic national event. Pompous palaces were built by hundreds of thousands of workers for the “biggest metro of the world”. The aim was to make a statement about the efficiency of the USSR to the West. At the same time, the architecture was supposed to serve as a symbol of power and strength for the citizens. This unique photo documentation of the Moscow Metro by Ralph Richter, one of the most renowned architectural photographers, was created in 1989 with personal permission from Mikhail Gorbachev. With immensely long exposure times the photographer was able to capture the buildings in fascinating brilliance in their actual state at the time. Presented here is an exclusive edition, strictly limited to 499 copies, which are numbered and signed.

New York/Los Angeles is an exciting collection of new images of America’s two most interesting cities taken over some 40 years, captured in black and white and color photography; as seen through the eye of photographer, art director and award-winning designer Lloyd Ziff. Lloyd Ziff is a well-respected and prolific photographer, his work has been included in the permanent collections of The Palm Springs Art Museum, Palm Springs, California, and The International Center of Photography, New York. He has been published in many of the world’s most prestigious magazines including The New York Times Magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, Interview, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and Wired.
Cornelia Wilhelm was only 19 years old when she arrived in New York to work as a photographer’s assistant. Working as a set assistant for Pirelli during the day, she spent her time off photographing the city and its people, capturing the very essence of 1980’s New York from the experimental, to the edgy and exciting, to the commonplace and the everyday. She photographed neighborhoods like the Bronx and Harlem, with their own unique culture and identity. She visited Coney Island with its worn-down amusements, the boardwalks and the fairground rides, the hotdog stands and yesterday’s “star attractions”; her images are nostalgic and eloquent. Shot By Both Sides is a candid, no-holds-barred portrait of an incredible city, at a turning point in its history; an evocative and lyrical collage of the faces and the lives of people far removed from the glamor and the glitz, at the edge of society, in the city that never sleeps.
A Respect for Light The Latin American Photographs: 1974-2008 Mario Algaze, Foreword by Vince Aletti ISBN: 9780991341962 Glitterati Incorporated 10.25 x 11in. 176pp. 128 b.&w. September 2014, $75.00 Hardcover, non-returnable
A Respect for Light showcases the unique genius of Latin American photographer (by birth and subject matter) Mario Algaze, whose deep appreciation and understanding of the nuances of light is both legendary and rare. This compilation is an exquisite and comprehensive collection of work by the Cuban-American photographer who, after being exiled from his homeland at the age of thirteen, traveled extensively in Central and South America, capturing the spirit of Latin America through his lens and seeking a connection with his cultural roots. This book represents the full breadth of the artist’s work, culled from over three decades of travel in sixteen different countries. As Carol McCusker, Curator of Photography at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MoPA) in San Diego, writes, Algaze “has steadily built a sum view of Spanish-speaking countries that no other photographer has done before or since.”
On Stage Vienna Opera House Dominique Meyer, Peter Kozak, Andreas Láng, Oliver Láng, Lois Lammerhuber On Stage shows everything that must be done before the curtain can be lifted and the prepared decorations of an opera house can be seen on stage so that the performance can start. The words ‘stage machinery’ describe only very inadequately the interaction of hundreds of people in highly skilled occupations: the flies, sinking, props... On Stage offers not only a glimpse behind the stage but also to mysterious places on, under and next to the stage, a preparatory drama that is as dramatic as the play itself. After Metamorphoses, Creation (ISBN 9783901753077), Celebration, Close-up (ISBN 9783901753190), Passion, Emotion and Glamour (ISBN 9783901753589), On Stage is the 8th volume in an encyclopaedic series about the Vienna Opera House, conceived to grow by one volume per year until 2019, when the opera house celebrates its 125th anniversary.

Artists’ Portraits François Meyer
François Meyer was awakened very early on to the appeal of contemporary art; his father was a great collector. Even as a child, Meyer would accompany his father to art galleries and auctions. Meyer began his photography career at world-renowned Swiss photographers Boissonas. Here, he developed a love of photography, portraiture in particular, and has, over the years, gone on to photograph some of the world’s best-known and best-loved artists. Included in this stunning book are portraits of Max Bill, Fernando Botero, Francesco Clemente, Sonia Delaunay, Helen Frankenthaler, April Gornik, David Hockney, JonOne, Wilfredo Lam, Roy Lichtenstein, Marilyn Minter, Beverley Pepper, Pierre & Giles, Kurt Sonderborg, Andy Warhol, and Yan Pei-Ming to name just a few.

This book tells the story of the forty-year career of a passionate art collector and photographer.
Photographer’s Paradise Turbulent America 1960-1990 Jean-Pierre Laffont with contributions by Sir Harold Evans The photographs that make up this first book by renowned photojournalist JeanPierre Laffont serve as a powerful and provocative examination of the American dream. For nearly three decades, Laffont traveled the breadth of the United States, a true embodiment of American freedom. Documenting the country in all of its facets from national crises and unsightly social injustices to heartfelt protest and solidarity, the photographer took full advantage of the access granted to him by the world’s greatest democracy. He traveled all fifty of the United States to document a broad swath of the country’s fabric, capturing America through some of its most turbulent eras. From the electric chair at Sing Sing to Women’s Jello Wrestling, the Watkins Glen rock festival to the Kent State shooting protest in Washington DC, Laffont was front and centre to history as it unfolded. Never working on assignment, Laffont chased stories of his own volition with a lens that was at once compassionate, humanistic, and unflinching. Taken together, these pages tell the story of the chaotic, often painful, birth of twenty-first-century America - a place where a black president, gay marriage, and women executives have become the new norm. Photographer’s Paradise reminds us of the power of the freedom of speech, as Laffont speaks truth to power through his camera lens.

Everything The Black and White Monograph Christopher Makos
Internationally renowned photographer Christopher Makos compiles here the finest of his black and white photography. With startling innovation and an eye for the cutting edge, Makos has made an extraordinary contribution to modern photography, continuously pushing the boundaries of his medium. Everything: The Black and White Monograph celebrates the work and influence of the man Andy Warhol called “the most modern photographer in America.” Everything is a comprehensive survey of Makos’ photographic work from 1973 to the present. As Peter Wise writes, it is a collection of images “so distinctly of a particular moment that a whole context is encapsulated” that communicate “something singular about a cultural moment.” This compilation, the first volume in a projected series, is unbound by “categories, themes, or specific subject matter.” Instead, it serves as a period piece, a vision of a particular time and place assembled by the man Doston Rader says is “widely considered the most important and gifted photographer of his generation.” Christopher Makos is known internationally for his explosive and innovative photography. This is his first monograph as photographer and artist. He apprenticed with photographer Man Ray in Paris early in his career, collaborated with Andy Warhol, and first introduced Warhol to photography. He also familiarized Warhol with the work of both Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. Makos’ work has been in the permanent collections of more than 100 museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as major private collections, including those of Pedro Almodovar and Gianni Versace. His photographs of Warhol, Haring, Tennessee Williams, and others have been auctioned regularly at Sotheby’s. Here, his work and influence is celebrated.

As a youngster Lara Gasparotto started photographing her friends in the natural course of their everyday lives. Presented here is a collection that captures these young people over a period of several years; images of what seem at first sight, trivial moments, engage the viewer’s attention. Moments of chance and intimacy, unpretentiously photographed.

ISBN: 9789710579235 ArtPostAsia 8.75 x 10in. 248pp. 124 b.&w. June 2014, $50.00 2 vols, Hardcover
Gasparotto deliberately chooses random images depicting spontaneous life-as-it-happens rather than a polished, posed collection.
Motorsport fanatic Stefan Bogner has now rediscovered the North Loop, capturing its magic forever with his camera. Despite their documentary nature, Bogner’s beautiful images are packed with the emotion and exciting details combined with specific information about the various sections of the track, its contours, the best overtaking opportunities and the right places to apply the brakes. Stefan Bogner is not only a writer and photographer, but also an alpinist, globetrotter and motorsport maniac. In his pictures, sometimes captured from a helicopter, you can feel his passion for, and understanding of, the rhythm of the road and the aesthetic of the asphalt. An evocative photographic journey in two volumes. Volume One is Paradise, a beautiful visual record of Edwin Koo’s travels into one of the most politically controversial places in recent history - the Swat Valley in Pakistan. An introspective journey and a personal reflection on this remote area referred to as “janad” (meaning paradise), this volume documents everyday life in the Swat Valley since the mass exodus of its population (more than two million inhabitants) in 2009. It is a commentary on the fragility of the natural environment and its ecology and testament to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of conflict and loss.

K.C. Korfmann, using photography as a medium of exploration and expression, brings to light the ephemeral moments we are surrounded with. The book is a photographic representation of the fleeting nature of reality. What Korfmann attempts to capture in a photograph is significantly distinct from what the viewer sees in the same image. And this is what he examines in contemporary articles from all over and makes them symbols of his philosophy. In addition to this, Korfmann challenges his readers to reexamine their seemingly regular aspects, beliefs of their world through the secular medium of photography.
Photography offers a thousand possible ways of looking at the society we live in. Foremost among the talents that have brought Calvin Dondo international recognition is the ability to put into his work all the respect he has for the individual identities of those he captures on film. This artist who reveals the nature of Zimbabwe today freely tells us of his country and the history concealed within it. This first monograph to be devoted to a contemporary Zimbabwean photographer will encourage others for the excellent reason that it is time to look at Africa through the clearsighted viewfinder of those working on its development.
This book is about a human adventure - that of photographer Julius Mwelu, a gifted and generous Kenyan who was born, lived and survived in Mathare Valley. This part of Nairobi is one of the huge slums that constitute a permanent social blight in Kenyaâ€™s capital. Julius trained and encouraged children and teenagers to see the world around them in a different light. Trained by their mentor in the use of the camera lens, these youngsters in turn took a complicit but distinctly critical look at the state of the place where they live. With this delicate blend of tenderness and realism, Mwelu offers us 112 testimonies to his mission as an artist and an educator.
In southern Katanga, one of the richest regions in Africa and the economic heart of Congo, cities originated around copper and cobalt mines. For the past ten years Sammy Baloji has been capturing the memories, hopes and imaginings of these children of the mines. The historical perspective in the Memoire series boldly invites the oppressed of yesterday to engage in dialogue with the ruins of today. Far from presenting an impasse, it invites us to rethink society, as if to exorcise its demons, allowing the dead to find peace so they haunt us no more. The optimism inherent in this process comes out even more clearly in Kolwezi, which presents the image of a ghost town and workers who try all they can to reclaim their own wealth, their dreams of comfort and most of all their want for dignity.

A beautifully photographed journey across Asia, documenting the lives of those who make their living from the sea, Catch highlights the extraordinary diversity of fishing methods across Asia; enriched by inspirational Asian quotes and proverbs related to the act of fishing.
Doors are symbols of passage and guardians of unknown treasures. The variety of doors across Asia is without equal: serene temples, magnificent forts, urban housing, and nomadic tents. Doors highlight the diversity in 132 color photographs, and enriched by inspirational Asian quotes and proverbs related to doors.
Hands are expressions of ourselves, measures by which we may be understood. Stretched out in acceptance or clenched in defiance, hands communicate our emotions. Weathered in the fields or immaculately manicured in the salon, they also reflect our lifestyles. Looking at hands across Asia is a journey of discovery, of stories untold.

This incredible book provides a reliable and upto-date reference work and textbook, illustrating the development of fashion from the extreme luxury of haute couture down to youth countercultures, and from high-fashion bespoke items to the endless reproduction of clothes on an industrial level. Each entry covers historical, cultural, aesthetic and technical aspects. The pictures and original illustrations provide the reader with a visual approach to the subject. The book includes entries devoted to the names, events and objects that have made the history of international fashion. Special attention is paid to technical and material details, together with creative and multidisciplinary aspects, such as important collaborations between artists or architects and fashion designers. Specializing in the study of fabrics, Arianna Piazza teaches the history of art, textiles and fashion at Afol Moda Milano.
A revival is now under way of the aesthetic deriving from the fashions of the 20th century’s youth cultures and subcultures. The period in which these trends were distinguished by political or social connotations has now come to an end, and it is simply the stylistic elements that are dominant today: reworked, improved and hybridized to develop an innovative aesthetic canon with evident historical roots in the pop culture with which to identify and, above all, be identified. The impetus comes from the young and not so young men of the 21st century, affluent, carefree travelers, professionally fulfilled, vain, hedonistic and sexually uninhibited. Giulia Pivetta graduated in Fashion and Textile Design; she is now a curator and researcher in the field.
Feathers and plumes have always been popular on the international fashion scene, linked to the glamorous designs of Dior, Yves-Saint-Laurent, Chanel, Alexander McQueen and many others. Birds of Paradise examines the unique role of feathers and plumes used throughout the 19th-, 20th- and 21st-century to create exclusive, eyecatching designs. Focusing particularly on the Plumassiers de Paris, the book features classic creations worn by stars of the stage and screen, such as Marlène Dietrich, the Flapper Girls of the 1920s and those from the time of the Belle Époque (1871-1914) in France and Belgium, inspired by the wonderful literature, music, theater and visual art of the time. Beautifully photographed, this is the story behind their creation - the designers, craftsmen and, ultimately, the people who wore them.
Encyclopaedia of Clothing Culture Thomas Rusche
If you aim to perfect a style of your own, and to dress your best on any occasion without losing your individual touch, the 8-volume Encyclopaedia of Clothing Culture is your indispensable guide. Thomas Rusche published a bestseller on the subject 20 years ago and has been seen as an authority ever since. And he’s an authority who can write – in an entertaining and informative style, presenting a whole portfolio of options to the reader. Rusche isn’t out to lay down the law on an immutable dress code. Far from it: the idea is to open up personal, playful space for readers to stage their own appearance. Once you have a sure and imaginative grasp of the interchange between the occasion, your own personality, and the expectations of others, you can play the gamut of stylish and individual presence to perfection – and enjoy every moment. Dress codes apply chiefly to the lords of creation – the ladies have greater freedom with fashion. For that reason this encyclopedia is mainly about gentlemen’s clothing. Volumes are devoted to suits, shirts and ties, jackets and coats, shoes and socks, hunting and traditional wear, undergarments for day and night, and accessories. And there’s still a volume on key issues in ladies’ fashions, so that the dictates of the commercial fashion industry are offset with a little confidence on points of etiquette and aesthetics.

This magnificent volume is a celebration of the first 100 years of black film poster art. A visual feast, these images recount the diverse and historic journey of the black film industry from the earliest days of Hollywood to present day. Part aesthetic, part nostalgic, the posters have meaning to young and old alike, and possess the power to transcend ethnicity. They capture the spirit and energy of an earlier time. They remind people of the pioneers of the past, those courageous and daring African-American filmmakers, entertainers and artists whose dreams and struggles paved the way for future generations.
This magnificent tome is a previously unseen look behind-the-scenes at the making of this most legendary of science fiction classics. Art director Harry Lange’s strikingly realistic designs for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey created an extraordinary vision of the future and they remain the epitome of filmmaking. The book tells the story of the relationship between the design team and Stanley Kubrick, recognizing their input in what is often considered all the director’s work. By releasing this previously unpublished archive and explaining its significance, the book takes the reader/viewer deep into the visual thinking behind 2001, for the first time ever. And 2001 is, above all else, a visual experience.
The 1960s and 1970s were the Golden Age of the X-rated movie. For the first time, these movies were shown in mainstream cinemas to a fashionable, young crowd. Of all film genres, X is possibly the one that lends itself best to the use of posters as a promotional medium. Screaming taglines, provocative titles and scantily-clad forms are all elements that can be used to best advantage in poster form. Today, these posters remain an inspiration for graphic designers and creatives. They are wonderful period pieces that evoke the temptations and taboos of a bygone age. This magnificent coffee-table book is the 10th anniversary, new, expanded, complete volume of Nourmand and Marsh’s bestselling release.

ulm Journal of the ulm School for Design René Spitzt
The legendary School of Design (HfG) in Ulm is one of the most important institutions for the development of modern design and modern societies. The journal “ulm” was one of the most effective instruments in the presentation and critical discussion of the school’s achievements in theory and practice. 21 bilingual issues (German/English) – initially even trilingual (including French) – were published between 1958 and 1968. The journals were not only an outlet for the school’s self-expression and witness of its own high demands in terms of the overall qualities of design, but also and especially brought together important programmatic texts by the School’s main protagonists, including Tomás Maldonado, Gui Bonsiepe, Reyner Banham, Anthony Frøshaug, Hans Gugelot and Abraham Moles. For the first time ever, all issues will be brought together in one critical compendium as a reprint in the original format, which makes the journal once again available for international discourse and thus brings the discussion of relevant issues of design up to date.

With a preface by Jonathan Adler, the book tracks the couple’s careers in the decorative arts from their beginnings to the creation of Jenev Design Studio and its eventual shift to ERA Industries, as well as their involvement in every prestigious California Design exhibition from 1954 to 1976.

The Ackermans became known for their uses of a wide spectrum of mediums including weaving, ceramics, wood carvings, and mosaics. The Ackermans’ individualistic and innovative techniques also ensured that great design be both accessible and affordable. Featuring many never-before-seen preparatory drawings and color guides, this book tells the heartening story of a successful collaboration and celebrated partnership, in not only design, but in life.

Ercol: Furniture in the Making is the book that post-war design enthusiasts have been waiting for. It tells the fascinating story or Ercol, one of Britain’s best-loved and must successful furniture companies. Founded in 1920 at by Lucian Ercolani, who came to Britain at the age of 10, Ercol is still going strong today and the company is still family-owned and run. Lesley Jackson is an independent writer, curator and design historian specializing in 20th century design. Her specialist fields include furniture, textiles, glass and ceramics but her interests range across the fine and applied arts. She is a published author and is particularly well-known for her research on post-war design. Between 2000-2008 India’s economic and political ascendancy were charted in the world’s press. This period of dynamism ushered in an increased sense of confidence, aspiration and pride in being Indian. This book is about the response of the design community to India’s changing environment. It focuses on fashion, graphic and interior design as metaphors of the complex networks that constitute globalization within key metropolitan centers of India. Examined within the context of their production and consumption, and through their economic, social, political and cultural underpinnings, a picture emerges which conveys how designers grapple with issues of identity and globalization, nationhood and modernity, ethics and commerce.

There has been a shift in contemporary design; it is not kitsch, something that has always taken a side swipe at beauty, because it does not have popular connotations. Rather, it appears to be a high and virtuous manifestation of creativity applied to objects of everyday use. It feeds off a variety of different abilities - woodwork, sculpture, carving, assemblage, collage, recycling, transformation, embroidery, knitting - and crosses a variety of trends, from Surrealism to Dadaism, from Zoomorphism to Anthropomorphism. Functionality becomes optional; the objective is wonder, and perhaps disgust: that healthy jolt that strikes the stomach before it strikes the mind. Terrific Design celebrates some of the most bizarre objects to be found in the design world today.
Paul Evans focuses on an American artist who has attracted a worldwide core of collectors and whose approach to furniture-making defied traditional notions of craftsmanship. Creating furniture as sculpture, defined by abstract composition, designer-craftsman Paul Evans (1931-1987) consistently pushed boundaries with his innovative approaches to metal work and furniture-making, his designs revealing the fascinating juxtaposition of sculpture and design. Constantly experimenting with traditional and synthetic materials, while also borrowing techniques from industrial manufacturing, Evans and his shop workers invested their furniture with an expressiveness that is quite distinctive in the realms of traditional craft and design.
Rupert Williamson is one of the foremost designer-craftsmen of furniture working today. Here, he surveys his work from 1962 up to date. Dividing his work, mostly one-off pieces which he designed and made with the help of only one or two assistants, into the various themes or styles which have emerged, he explains in detail how his work evolves developing from sketches, models, CAD, or a combination of these; the choice of materials and methods of construction. A catalogue of his entire work is included showing its range. In all this gives a fascinating insight into the life and work of a furniture designer and maker of rare talent, supporting the view that his work bridges the division between crafts and art as his work moves towards sculptural forms. The French designer Hubert Le Gall, born in 1961, began his career as a painter and portrait artist before turning to sculpture, furniture and exhibition design. Taking his inspiration from decorative forms from the past, Hubert Le Gall creates furniture that is at once poetic and functional, such as his ‘Pot de Fleurs’ chair and ‘Goutte d’herbe’ commode, juxtaposing ideas in surprising ways and playing on shape, light and color. While he works in a variety of materials, including wood, glass, resin and ceramic, his favorite medium is bronze. Following a period inspired by botanical forms, he is currently exploring a poetic bestiary. Hubert Le Gall’s work embellishes contemporary restaurants, private living spaces and the dining room of the Mayor of Paris. Since 1996 it has been displayed at the Avant-Scène gallery in Paris.

Photographer Mirjam Bleeker and interior designer Frank Visser have enjoyed a friendship and creative partnership for over eighteen years. During this time, they have traveled the world together. During their travels, they have stayed in a range of settings, private homes and ‘retreats’, meeting an eclectic mix of people choosing to make their lives by the sea. The photographs in this collection are beautiful, capturing the imagination, they reflect the colors of water and sky, filled with the bleached driftwood, shells and pebbles found on the shoreline, the ‘music’ of the ocean, the seabirds and the waves re-created in the internal fabric of the buildings, on porches, under canvas, framed in the windows and through the open doors. This book brings these far-flung places to life, with images of white-washed walls, rusted corrugated iron roofs, strings of faded flags fluttering in the breeze, lazy hammocks, footprints in the sand from Bali to Senegal, Costa Rica, Chile, India and Italy; pure escapism.

Founded in Chicago in 1989, the architectural firm Brininstool + Lynch has become known for modern works that are rooted in the exceptional architectural culture of Chicago but also epitomize the best of contemporary design: elegant spatial compositions, remarkable aesthetic quality, refined details. In this volume, partners Brad Lynch and David Brininstool have selected 15 built works that represent the breadth and depth of the practice as well as its character, at once sophisticated and straightforward. Among the projects are the Racine Art Museum, designed around a collection of crafts in ceramic, fiber, glass, metal, and wood; city and country houses in Illinois and Indiana; and a series of large-scale urban residential buildings; as well as galleries, offices, a lounge, and a stateof-the-art 'sound lab' featuring an ever-changing LED light fixture. Brininstool + Lynch's architecture of refinement is both exquisitely consistent and consistently exquisite.
The main focus of the collection of buildings in Houses Now is to engage the general public with the value of design. Projects are grouped into climate zones: Arid/Semi-arid, Temperate, Tropical/Sub-tropical, Arctic/Cold-climate. Each zone section of the book has an introductory text written for the public that explains the vibrancy of design in response to climate taking into account local vernacular with respect to local materials, local labor, and local cultural symbolism.

‘Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.’ So said the iconic Ray Bradbury, and indeed history as we know it begins with the invention of the library. Libraries is a visual exploration of how cultures around the world have responded to the impulse to protect and interact with the written word; for the story of the human experience is told not only in the books on a library’s shelves, but also in its architecture. Lavishly illustrated with stunning photography, readers are invited into the most ornate libraries, lauded universities and innovative design works on earth; the mannerist and the ultra-modern, the opulent and the austere. As libraries and their architecture continue to evolve at breakneck speed, Libraries captures the particular atmosphere of hushed reverence evoked by these cornerstones of society.

Philippe Samyn is a civil engineer, architect and town planner with a PhD in Applied Sciences. He founded Philippe SAMYN & PARTNERS, architects and engineers, in 1980. Jan De Coninck regularly works together with Samyn and Partners.
Snehal Shah believes in making architecture that is ‘of its time’, as a Gujarati proverb states. History confirms that buildings appropriate to their time, place and climate endure. In learning to build, his architecture adopted a variety of expressions - with the constant being the will to manipulate light and ventilation to best advantage. He studies vernacular techniques as well as learning from wider Indian exemplars and also Western architectural history. References from all these find their way into his buildings, along with his debt to the geometry of Louis Kahn and Mario Botta. In this book, Shah exhibits the work of 25 years in practice. He describes his concerns and development as an architect in parallel with the emergence of India onto the world stage as a mighty, populous, modern nation rich in contradictions.

This book is designed to meet the specific needs of design and construction professionals. It’s not going to waste their time with the things that most educated professionals know, but it will help them with the things they don’t know or are unsure of. It’s not a Chicago Manual-sized encyclopedic reference that includes everything any writer would ever need to know, because architects don’t need to know everything. But what they do need to know - and what they use every day in their professional lives - has been assembled in this book.
An introductory resource for architects and an inspiration to contractors, developers and structural consultants who have encountered Tilt Wall construction. Jeffrey Brown provides a full synthetic treatment of Tilt Wall construction, explaining its history, methodology, and relationship to the current architectural approaches to meaning. Inclusion of practical reference and resource sections in the book will appeal to a crossdisciplinary audience.
Designed by Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners, the Win Sing AIT Residential Towers create a new gateway for the prestigious Neihu District of Taipei, directly across from the future American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), also in design by MRY. The book features an essay by Philip Jodidio, who writes, “This work is at the edge, not the proverbial cutting edge, but at the limit between history and modernity, between the tough city and privileged views toward the green horizon. Where Charles Moore sought to break the taboos that had separated history from Modernism, MRY today integrates culture (and thus history) in a subtle, profound way with a building that is far more solid than any stage set. This link between the origins of MRY and Win Sing AIT is more than a fanciful one, it is the very reason for which this project succeeds in what must be considered a daunting challenge: defining the edge.”

Eaton Center is the expression of the values of a century-old company with deep roots in the American Midwest. Rising above the rolling terrain of northern Ohio, the building takes its place between a woods and a reflecting pond. The experience of Eaton is planar: it extends space and views, both close and distant, through the landscape, connecting the building and its people to the place, and the values held in common. Eaton Center is the product of a dedicated client and design team and the values that brought them together to create a special place to work. Authored by architecture critic Dr Michael J. Crosbie, this book documents that collaboration between Eaton and the design team and the resulting transformation of the land into Eaton’s new home on the North American plain. Inaugurated in 1984 and held every year since, the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers Regional Awards of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects have acknowledged and celebrated the best work by architects on Australia’s Gold Coast over the course of three decades. This book is a photographic record of those achievements, presenting the prize-winning work realized in the region, as well as projects commended for their contribution to the region’s architecture.
The Classicist is an annual peer-reviewed journal dedicated to advancing the mission of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art by providing a venue for scholarship related to the classical tradition in architecture and the allied arts, a forum for current classical practice, and a source of information and inspiration.

Europa is being built to become the headquarters for the European Council. It will host future European summits, meetings between heads of state or government from the 28 European Union member countries. Europa will also be the new headquarters for the Council of the European Union, the EU’s supreme political body. The Europa building will incorporate the listed façades of the former Résidence Palace, built in 1927 by Michel Polak, thus creating an unparalleled architectural backdrop to current and future political discourse within Brussels’ European Quarter. The design of this new and innovative complex is inspiring; this volume presents a critical analysis of the building’s design and provides a comprehensive account of one of Europe’s most important architectural designs.

This book brings together wooden houses of different styles from all over the world, featuring contrasting yet contemporary residential homes for a new age of environmentally responsible construction.
For Belgian architect Jef Van Oevelen architecture is more than merely solving a technical puzzle or playing with volumes. Architecture is about materializing goals and values with an historical, socialogical, political and economical reality. He has been working from these principles since 1987. Next to designing smaller projects and renovating private houses, participation in various competitions also made him familiar with large-scale projects - something that has already resulted in contracts for schools, office buildings, libraries, cultural institutions and above all, many public and social housing projects.

Artists in Britain have long been fascinated by the sea. Since the early 19th century, the sea has been an important focus for painters relishing the challenge of working directly from nature, often in inhospitable conditions. Such work has gained a new importance reflecting current concerns about climate change and rising sea levels. Danger is a recurrent theme; Morland, Danby, Brett and Langley emphasized the human costs of shipwrecks, Turner concentrated on elemental fury, and Constable on the sea’s breezy freshness. Late 19th century depictions seem more benign, portraying the sea as a source of leisure and health. Moore, James, and Laurence all feature.
Created around 1730, this group of reliefs adds fundamentally to our understanding of bronze sculpture in the period between the late Baroque and the Enlightenment. The sculptor Pietro Cipriani, who collaborated on the reliefs with the painter Giovanni Casini, emerges as a key Florentine bronze artist of the early 18th century. The works help confirm that the rich tradition of bronze sculpture in Florence – initiated by Giambologna and influential across Europe – continued for one generation longer than scholars previously believed. The reliefs also show that the last major exponent of this tradition was Pietro Cipriani. The Hours of Night and Day sculptures encapsulate early 18th-century European ideas about the cyclical nature of time and about the characteristics of particular moments.
This book analyzes, from six standpoints, the different ways in which artists have represented the male nude body from modernity to the present day. A hundred and seventy-two works of art created in various techniques and belonging to collections from all over the world engage in a dialogue that originates in modern eighteenth-century Europe, when the canon of classical antiquity was revived and identity between moral virtue and strength was assessed to define the heroic man. From manly strength to the most human pain, this book aims to show the reader both the ancient expression and its contemporary manifestations.
Witches & Wicked Bodies provides an innovative, rich survey of images of European witchcraft from the sixteenth century to the present day. It focuses on the representation of female witches and the enduring stereotypes they embody, ranging from hideous old crones to beautiful young seductresses. Petherbridge introduces this fascinating subject and includes catalogue entries on each of the exhibited works. The illustrations primarily feature drawings and prints as well as a group of important paintings. A wide range of artists is represented including Dürer, Goya, Fuseli, Blake, Burra and Rego.

Bullfight: Paintings and Works on Paper is Glitterati’s second collection of works by worldrenowned Colombian artist Fernando Botero. In his youth, Botero developed a passion for bullfighting that has remained with him throughout his illustrious, six-decade career. The artist was profoundly influenced by the spectacle of the bullring - the vivid colors, the dynamic movement, the beauty and violence, bravery and fear. In Botero’s signature style, the figures of the bullfight appear inflated and voluptuous, a grandiose exploration of scale, space, and volume. Matadors and picadors, horses and bulls, spirited crowds and striking portraits - all are exaggerated and exalted by the hand of the artist.
Hollywood is Don Bachardy’s magnum opus, a five-decade retrospective of the artist’s portrait drawings and paintings; a compendium of Hollywood’s influential actors, directors, screenwriters, cinematographers, costumers, choreographers, composers, columnists, producers, and agents. Includes portraits of: Jack Nicholson, Angela Lansbury, Katherine Hepburn, Robert Downey Jr., Tim Robbins, Julianne Moore, Tom Waits, Madeleine Stowe, Simon Callow, Patrick Swayze, Brooke Shields, Joan Rivers, Jon Voight, Stockard Channing, Jane Fonda, Joan Collins, Fred Astaire, Rita Hayworth, Barbara Streisand, Natalie Wood, Marlene Dietrich, John Huston, Ian McKellen, and many, many more.
This first book by famous textile artist Mister Finch is a gorgeous collection of the artist’s fantastical, one-of-a-kind creatures. Drawing inspiration from the natural world, as well as British folklore, Finch mingles fairytales and reality to create a magical world all his own. Finch’s critters have been called “wonderfully peculiar and completely charming”, “a joy for the eye and the soul”. Many of these pieces were born of treasures lost and forgotten: velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become birds and beasts, looking for new owners and adventures. The pages of this book are strewn with creatures who prove that anything is possible in the fairytale world of Mister Finch.
Start with a House, Finish with a Collection is the story of how a couple’s use of American art and antiques evolved from furnishing a house into a full-blown passion for collecting. Featuring exquisite examples of Hollingsworth and Morris family furniture, Weber boxes, Pennsylvania clocks and Kirk-Stieff silver, as well as American paintings by the Peale family, Edward Hicks, Edward Redfield and Horace Pippin, this museum-caliber collection reveals a pride in the early American sensibility. The combination of text and extraordinary photographs traces this remarkable journey and demonstrates that life can be more than comfortable living among these collections. The compendium catalogues the diversified and important collection, making this a valuable scholarly reference as well as a reading pleasure.

Alexander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (18911953) was a central figure in the Russian Constructivist art movement; a radical activist, a pioneer of photomontage, a theorist, and a teacher. He was an active force in the organization of the first museums of modern art that arose in Russia in the first years after the Russian Revolution of 1917. This concise, comprehensive and informative work focuses largely on Rodchenko’s graphic work in the form of book jackets, posters and advertising, and is an excellent introduction to the life and work of this versatile Russian artist.
Starting in 1991 and continuing through 2010, artist Michele Oka Doner has paved the concourses of Miami International Airport with thousands of sculptural bronze elements, from sea plants and animals through native Florida plant life to astronomical objects. Extending over more than two miles, Doner’s fantastical installations are a first welcome and a last farewell to airport passengers. This slipcased 24-panel foldout showcases Doner’s three major public works in a charming keepsake volume.

The German-Swedish artist Ann Wolff (born in 1937) is one of the most significant and exciting proponents of the European studio glass movement. This publication offers an extensive overview of the period of work over the last ten prolific years. With most of her large-format sculptures, the medium of glass plays a central role, but Ann Wolff is not restricted to it alone; she also uses other materials, such as bronze, concrete or aluminium. The catalogue is boosted by additional selected drawings and pastels.
A recently discovered plaster of Little Dancer, Aged Fourteen is critically challenging our understanding of Edgar Degas’ most famous work. The plaster reveals Degas at his most innovative by introducing a radical idea of posing a lowly ‘opera rat’ as a revered figure by giving her an iconic pose, then locking her into a square vitrine, thus emphasising her symmetrical, four-sided stance. It is now clear that in his Little Dancer Degas anticipated radical ideas that came to define key aspects of modern art, dramatically impacting his most noted peers, including Whistler, Manet, Seurat and Sargent. Even 20th-century masterpieces by Duchamp, Giacometti, Oldenburg, Warhol and Hirst reflect, albeit indirectly, Degas’ masterful innovations.
When the British colonial power in the 19thcentury extended its influence to the borderland between India and Burma, it brought about an era of cultural changes for the native Naga tribes. The spectacular material culture soon led to the Naga being stylized as the epitome of ‘noble savages’. The pictorial documentation of the tribe reached its peak in the 1930s, following the research expeditions by the Austrian ethnologist Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf and his German colleague Hans-Eberhard Kauffmann. The photographic heritage of Kauffmann, rediscovered by the author, is the focus of this publication. A detailed introduction presents the working practices and analyzes the biographies of the two ethnographers and their political and ideological entanglements. Lilo Rasch-Naegele, who was born in 1914 in Stuttgart and died in 1978 in Oberaichen, would have celebrated the centenary of her birth in 2014. This volume sheds light on the extraordinary artistic legacy that this versatile, highly creative painter and graphic artist left to posterity. Recognized as an important twentieth-century artist, whose outstanding oeuvre comprises oil paintings, prints and an impressive collection of graphic drawings. This monograph contains contemporary insights into Lilo Rasch-Naegele's creative personality, as well as presenting examples of her graphic art and her oil paintings.

As a young artist in the ‘50s and ‘60s, Mira Lehr was at the forefront of abstract expressionism and the New York School. Mira Lehr, Nature in Art presents Lehr’s work and career as an artist continuing over five decades. The artist’s expression of nature through various media is explored by Eleanor Heartney, arts and cultural critic. Heartney analyzes Lehr’s work, her background and the process involved in her artistry as well as her drive as a woman artist. The book also features a 2014 interview by Irving Sandler and a foreword by Thom Collins, Director of the Miami Art Museum. Lehr’s own writing and reflections throughout the book reveal her metaphysical nature. Includes over 100 images of Lehr’s art - compelling paintings, sculpture and video in brilliant color.
Renowned art historian/critic of modern art, Joseph Masheck was so encouraged to be a generalist by his mentor, the great architectural historian Rudolf Wittkower, that he answers to a specialty of “mostly modern.” This book, a compilation of essays by colleagues near and far, has grown out of a symposium organized at Hofstra for his seventieth birthday.

The 8 of Paths
The 8 of Paths introduces 22 young artists from Beijing by means of large-format pictures as well as texts on their lives and works. It shows a generation which has worked for new possibilities and freedoms and which make a China visible that was so far unknown. Contrary to the common Western depiction of a monolithic state apparatus, multiplicities develop in China that result in a new self-image of artistic personality in the conflict between the public and the private of Chinese coinage. In addition several essays provide a fascinating overview of the current art scene in Beijing and an informative look back at their development since the beginning of the 1990s.

Translated into English for the first time, Jacques Ellul’s ground-breaking Empire of NonSense analyzes the relation between technology, art, rationality and human freedom. Ellul examines this process in modern art from the beginning of the 20th century where the sense of art - its meaning and embodiments - is reduced to non-sense. Ellul’s study is in the tradition of Guy Debord’s The Society of Spectacle and Theodor Adorno’s Aesthetic Theory but moves significantly beyond their Marxist perspectives that were, from Ellul’s view, co-opted by technique.
Adrian Wiszniewski (born in Glasgow in 1958) remains best known as one of the ‘New Glasgow Boys’, who shot to prominence in the mid-1980s with huge, exuberant figure paintings as redolent of fantasy and myth as they were attuned to the workings of contemporary thought and everyday life. This book, with over 100 illustrations of the most important work, is the first to provide an overview of Wiszniewski’s art over thirty years of continuity and change. Ten essays mix chronological survey with thematic discussion to identify both the core elements and the more distinctive features of the artist’s surprisingly consistent creative personality.
Edgar Holloway, the Doncaster-born son of a miner, turned print seller, was recognized as an infant prodigy and given his first exhibition in London in 1931, aged 17. He was an acclaimed portraitist of, among others, T S Eliot, Stephen Spender, Herbert Read, and noted for his series of etched self-portraits, and for lively watercolor landscapes. Written by his second wife, this book will be published to celebrate the centenary of Edgar Holloway’s birth. It is illustrated throughout with various aspects of his work.
Constant Within the Change: Gary Wragg surveys the work of abstract painter Gary Wragg. Texts by Hilary Spurling, Terence Maloon, Matthew Collings, Sam Cornish, Stefanie Sachsenmaier and Wragg himself explore various aspects of his art – including his relation to American Abstract Expressionism and friendship with painters Jack Tworkov and Willem de Kooning; and his practice of Tai-Chi, of which he is one of Europe’s leading experts. In two volumes Constant Within the Change includes over five hundred full-color images, and comes with access to an on-line catalogue of Wragg’s work.

Illuminating Faith: The Eucharist in Medieval Life and Art examines the importance of the Eucharist in Europe during the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. Over sixty images from the Morgan Library & Museum’s famous holdings of illuminated manuscripts are used to illustrate the themes of the Institution of the Eucharist, Celebration of Mass, the Eucharist and the Old Testament, Domestic Devotion to the Eucharist, the Feast of Corpus Christi, and Eucharistic Miracles.

The book is divided into two sections. The first presents a broad selection of contemporary artists who were inspired by Robert Walser, such as Markus Raetz, Rosemarie Trockel and Mark Wallinger; the diversity of the artistic media alone serves to demonstrate just how significant Walser’s impact has been. In the second historical section, works created in Switzerland and abroad during Robert Walser’s lifetime are shown.
The ‘Two Roberts’: Robert Colquhoun (19141962) and Robert MacBryde (1913-1966), were two of the most important and celebrated Scottish artists of the twentieth century. Their post-cubist work - much influenced by Picasso - became enormously successful. In the 1950s they established worldwide reputations.
Robert Colquhoun and Robert MacBryde
The writer Robert Walser (1878-1956) had an enormous influence on the visual arts. This publication is the first attempt to extensively document and discuss aspects of his influence.
Published to accompany an exhibition at the Musée du Louvre, this book presents a vast array of works of art: the mask of Dyonisus (5th century BC), Man Ray’s photos, Mantegna’s and Callot’s etchings, the death masks of the Italian and French Renaissance, the Mannerist Gorgon heads sculpted on the parade shields to imitate the petrifying head of the Gorgon on Athena’s shield. The catalogue examines the religious role of the mask in Greek theater, its expressive, playful and at times diabolical force in feasts, balls and the Italian Commedia, its role in funerary contexts (death mask) and its apotropaic function in burials. It also investigates its uses as an ornamental element (large, grotesque masks).

In the last twenty-five years contemporary art in Scotland has grown from a tiny and tightly knit scene to a globally recognized center of artistic innovation and experiment. Generation provides the first collection of key documents from the period including essays, interviews, critical writing and artists’ own texts. This publication will fill a significant gap in the scholarship of the period and provide a resource for the future, an illustrated guide to the ideas, events and debates that shaped a generation. The selected archive texts from the period will sit alongside some newlycommissioned writing which includes essays by the novelist Louise Welch and by Nicola White, Dr Sarah Lowndes, Francis McKee, Professor Andrew Patrizio and Julianna Engberg.
Fernando Vicente is an artist based in Madrid. It is his painting work - specifically three series: ‘Atlas’, ‘Anatomies’, and ‘Vanitas’ that is the focus of this title. Since the early 1980s, Fernando’s award-winning illustrations have appeared in Vogue, Playboy, El País, Letras Libres, Gentleman, and many other publications, and his off-center style and dark sense of humor are similarly evident in his numerous book cover designs, for Spanish publishing houses and the OUP. He has had 4 books of his work published in his home country, where he has been exhibiting in solo and collective shows since 1984. However, thanks to a rapidly growing online fanbase, his paintings are beginning to receive due recognition.
What is Art? What is value? What is good taste? What makes a cultured class? Tolstoy wrestled with these questions for fifteen years, and this book is the result of his fascination with the evolution of art, and its relationship with religion, commerce, and science. As the growing digitization of our world continues to provide new ways to create and consume art, and raises questions about its quality and its control, What is Art? challenges us to revert to the visceral, the authentic, and to think carefully about how art can shape our collective future.
Artist Tessa Newcomb’s new book explores her love of Paris in words and paint - “a more leisurely Paris with fewer cars, less noise and stress” - with elegant ladies walking their dogs, one large and one small, children playing on the carousels in the Tuileries, devotees of boules and chess in the Luxembourg, bars and cafés, hidden squares, shuttered windows, glimpses of interiors, strolling nuns, mysterious courtyards seen through half-open doors. Around 100 oils and watercolor drawings, lovingly painted in the past few years, offer a wonderful visual record of her wanderings in the by-ways of Paris.

This simple handbook aims to enable readers to make their own lake pigments or dye their own textiles using dyes from naturally occurring raw materials in a simple way under relatively controlled conditions and using recipes optimized for easy use in the laboratory or indeed the classroom. The book provides the basic principles of dying and lake pigment making (using the term ‘lake pigment’ in its original, historical, sense indicating a naturally occurring dye precipitated onto a conventional usually white substrate, frequently a form of hydrated alumina) and from these the reader can try modifying the conditions or the amount of raw material, for example, to obtain different results. Suggestions for simple modifications are given.
Alexandru Radvan, a man with astounding creative energies, is one of the most prominent contemporary artists in Romania and his art not only fits into the art historical tradition, but itself reinterprets the old myths and mythologies. This profusely illustrated book explores the work of Alexandru Radvan over the last decades examining it from both critical and art historical points of view. This book also serves as a call to make records of the materials used by contemporary artists in their artistic processes and also to interest contemporary artists in the methods of preventive conservation of their artistic works.
This important book presents the results of a comprehensive technical study of the painters in Cologne between 1400 and 1450. It represents a major step forward in understanding the materials and techniques of panel painting in the 15th century achieved through dendrochronological evidence and examination of the ground and intermediate layers, pigments etc. In addition to discussions on the results of the analyzes, there is a catalogue of 29 15th-century panels together with the results of their examinations.

Joan Eardley was one of the best-loved Scottish artists of the twentieth century. Her observations of children in the back streets of Glasgow as well as her expressionistic drawings and oils of the elements on the north-east coast of Scotland have caught the imagination of the Scottish public. This book examines Eardley’s oeuvre and its place in the international and British context and her reputation. It includes paintings and drawings from private collections, which have not been seen for many years, and works from the collection of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which also holds the Joan Eardley Archive.
‘My favorite museum in the world!’ This is what many visitors say about the Pitt Rivers Museum, with its atmospheric galleries, showing artifacts from all corners of the world, uniquely arranged according to the objects’ different functions. But who was General Pitt-Rivers, who donated the founding collection, and how did the museum come to have so distinctive an appearance? Its displays may look unchanged since Victorian times, but they are actually the outcome of a lively history, curatorial ambitions, university politics and shifts in public taste. This book provides, in addition, an insight into the collections themselves, the cast of characters who contributed to them and the kind of collaborations that the museum today undertakes with the communities from which the collections originally came. Only at The Ringling can you discover the magic of the American circus, explore 5,000 years of art from around the world, step back in time to the Roaring Twenties, and take in a show at a theater fit for a Renaissance queen. The many wonders of The Ringling come together in this one volume, designed to enhance your experience on site and serve as a souvenir of your visit. With more than 80 illustrations and an accessible text, this book introduces you to the fascinating history of a unique institution and its extraordinary collections.

The papers in this volume, presented at the Royal Institute of Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) in Brussels in November 2012, cover a wide range of works of art, periods, sources and approaches, from Dioscorides to contemporary artists’ installations. The theme of the conference is reflected in studies such as Tingely’s explosive Homage to New York, the evolutions and transformations of harpsichords in France in the 17th and 18th centuries, the art of wax anatomical models in Spain, or neogothic polychromies. Research on artist’s materials, such as vermillion, zinc white or turpentine, refers to patents, inventories, diaries and chronicles. The interpretation and transmission of sources is central to several papers. Innovative databases on Art Technological Sources are also presented.
A forum (the papers of which are published here) was held in Oslo in 2010 to gather ideas, seek advice and, in general, begin to shape the onward decision-making process for a new project known as After the Black Death: Painting and Polychrome Sculpture in Norway, 1350-1550. The forum was the first step towards gaining intellectual access to altarpieces, shrines, sculptures and crucifixes for which little (if any) historical documentary evidence has survived. Significantly, too, the forum was a step toward addressing issues related to visibility.
This book is a collection of scientific papers written over 30 years by Karin Groen on aspects of the painting of Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Leyster, Vermeer, Van Gogh etc. The author tracks the historical development of the application of scientific techniques in research into artists’ techniques and materials and examines phenomena such as the changing of green pigments to blue, the use of red in preparatory layers, binding media, blanching and organic pigments.
The implications of globalisation include the growing necessity for people everywhere to be working in a more ‘global’ way. The growing international cooperation between professionals and clients in the field of Architectural Paint Research has highlighted the necessity of agreeing on standards in the way that samples are taken, analyzed and recorded. The papers in this volume illustrate the problems involved in meeting this challenge. The importance of keeping up with present-day standards in the paint industry is also addressed.

The volume includes never-before-seen imagery from Alice Maher’s sketchbooks.
The first monograph on the work of Patrick George (born 1923), this book reveals to a largely unsuspecting public the lyrical paintings of a rare talent. George is better known as a teacher; he taught for 40 years at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College, London before becoming Director there. He has only shown his work infrequently, yet perceptive commentators have identified him as a School of London painter. Patrick George is very much his own man, a Northern European landscape and figure painter, working in the tradition of Constable and Gainsborough. In this book, his unique contribution to the development of contemporary landscape painting is for the first time examined and evaluated.
Published on the occasion of the renovation and expansion of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in 2014, this extraordinary new book offers a fully-illustrated overview of the Clark’s world-class collection of nineteenthcentury European and American Paintings, Old Master paintings, English and American silver, master drawings and prints and early photography. Featuring iconic works by Edgar Degas, John Singer Sargent, and Winslow Homer, this elegantly designed volume examines the collection as well as the history of the Clark and its origins, its new expansion, and its ongoing commitment to research and art historical scholarship.

The contemporary art scene in India is still quite young but is developing quickly. The authors invite the reader on a journey through this fascinating and fast moving art scene. Both Gérard A. Goodrow and Julia Ritterskamp have long -standing connections within the contemporary art world in Western Europe, but have also sought and established contact with Indian artists and other protagonists of the Indian art scene long before the boom of the socalled “emerging markets”. The book presents both established and emerging artists from India, as well as those with Indian heritage abroad. The topics range from politics to gender, from the art market to photojournalism, from abstraction to the conscious drawing on traditional techniques. Himalayan Cities: Settlement Patterns, Public Places and Architecture explores the idea of settlements in different areas of the Himalayan region, cutting across national boundaries, from Kashmir via Nepal to the north-eastern parts of the Indian subcontinent, and their relationship with the landscape. The relationship between natural systems and human ingenuity as projected through its built traditions forms the underlying theme of the book. Lavishly illustrated with stunning photographs and detailed hand drawings by the author and his students, Himalayan Cities not only engages the academia but also the general reader and helps provoke a discourse on this intriguing landscape and its architectural nuances.
A facsimile edition of the much-acclaimed exhibition Mughal India: Art , Culture and Empire, curated by the British Library, London, The Mughals: Life, Art and Culture, brought to Delhi by Roli Books in collaboration with the British Library and IGNCA, showcases an extensive collection of illustrated manuscripts and paintings that depict the splendor and vibrant color of Mughal life. From scenes of country life, including lively hunting parties and formal portraits of emperors, to illustrations of works of literature which manage to convey complex storylines in a single image, many of these works have never been published.
Radha occupies a space which moves from the aesthetics of shringara rasa to the theology of shringara bhakti, from the madhurya of Pushtimarg Vaishnavism to the prema of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, taking in its stride the philosophies of Advaita and Dvaita, the traditions of Shakti and Shakta, she takes us from the devotional poetry of Bhaktikal to the courtly poetry of Ritikal and even beyond to the modern poetry of Adhunikkal. Radha is both kamini and ramani, desirable and beautiful, she is both a gopi and a nayika and through her we feel the presence of Krishna in Vrindavana and the opulence of the Vaishnava Rajput courts, she is a devi in the temples of the Gaudiyas and through her we are able to worship Krishna, and finally she is even a kalankini or the defiled one and through her we are privy to the folk literature of Bengal and modern middle class psychology of the bhadralok.

Ragachitra: Deccani Ragamala Paintings presents exquisite miniature art from Bijapur, rendered in the Deccan style (19th-century). A set of 44 unpublished ragamala paintings in possession of the National Museum, Delhi since 1989 has been displayed, retaining its original brilliance. The paintings stand apart in their vibrant visual appeal, depth and range of content and in the perfect symphony created between art and music. A lucid narrative documents the history of Indian classical music, the range of traditions of the raga theory and their miniature visual forms created in medieval India. It is a delightful and overwhelming aesthetic and intellectual experience for the reader.
Aamir Khan: Actor, Activist, Achiever; an acclaimed actor who became the thinking man’s superstar. An ardent activist who highlighted complex social issues and spread awareness. An accomplished achiever who reinvented the entire concept of a movie star. Aamir Khan actor, producer, director - has so many colors in his life that it is almost impossible to compile them in a single book. The author and photographer, Pradeep Chandra, attempts the insurmountable task of tracing the trajectory of Aamir’s career that has seen him evolve and become one of the greatest contributors to the art of cinema in India and a hugely influential public figure. This book is the author’s tribute to the superstar and the man behind it.
Cycling into rarely visited northern Rajasthan’s tiny desert towns Ilay Cooper discovered impressive buildings, their walls covered with vibrant paintings. Research revealed the unpublished writings and drawings of Col Lockett and Lt Boileau, who crossed Shekhawati in 1831. Both men are depicted in contemporary murals. Their mission was to enquire into and record the brigandry then affecting local trade. This led to the founding of a Shekhawati Brigade to suppress robbery and bring security to the local merchants. Peace and prosperity returned, creating ideal conditions for a display of conspicuous wealth. The merchants commissioned fine buildings and, as a final touch, their walls were painted. So a military mission led to an artistic one!
Indian Painting is a tribute to the scholarship of the distinguished art historian B. N. Goswamy, whose critical influenced opened up new ways of thinking about Indian Painting. Forty major scholars from South Asia, America, Australia and Europe write in his honor, about pictures from a large geographical area and huge chronological span - from Ajanta to present times. These authors break new ground and chart new paths. They also bring to attention a number of previously unpublished visual materials, adding a refreshing dimension to the already vibrant study of Indian painting.

This volume is a product of Aalam-e-Khusrau project, which was initiated in 2010 by Aga Khan Trust for Culture with a grant from Ford Foundation. Born in Patiali, in present-day Uttar Pradesh, Amir Khusrau Dehlvi (1253 1325 AD) went on to create the largest and most versatile corpus of literature in the Persiante world of his time and of today. Khusrau studied and had an understanding of diverse knowledge from science and art, to religion. This lavishly illustrated volume exemplifies the innovations and contributions of Amir Khusrau with a vast array of rare manuscripts, objects and images from several collections. With diverse and insightful visual references, it fully expands his works as they contribute to the making and continuity of Indo-Islamic cultural heritage. Within the context of Tai cosmology and numerology, Therevada Buddhism and spirit religion, this lavishly illustrated book examines how good and bad spirits are formulated to bring good luck and protection or to cause bad luck. Extensive field-work studies over a period of four years were conducted in the Shan States (now part of Burma/Myanmar) and in northern Thailand. Using her field notes and photographs, Susan Conway provides a colorful picture of the people who create magic and explains how mystical remedies are prescribed and the rituals involved. She includes material from museum collections in the USA, UK and Thailand.
While connoisseurship of natural stones is today well established in the West, books on viewing stones still predominantly feature East Asian examples. This is the first to present the finest North American viewing stones from private and institutional collections, selected by a panel of experts from over 275 professional photographs submitted by over 50 individuals and institutions. Each stone confronts us with the beauty and diversity of the natural world, and each has an uncanny ability to elicit an emotional response in the viewer. Included are introductory essays on Native American stone appreciation and a brief history of stone collecting on the continent.
Here, for the first time, American architect Roger Vogler examines this great Hindu temple carved downward from the top of a hillside in Maharashtra from the perspective of his fellow architect: the unknown sthapati who actually designed it thirteen centuries ago. This book presents new insights into the understanding of an archeological marvel. Included are magnificent photographs of these 5-7th-century temples. Published in association with Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH).

Temple Tents for Goddesses in Gujarat, India is a monograph on printed and painted canopies and awnings used by some underprivileged groups in Gujarat to erect temporary sacred spaces to perform ceremonies invoking goddesses. The book is based on an exhibition catalogue (in German) the author produced in collaboration with Jyotindra Jain and Haku Shah in1982 for an exhibition at the Museum Rietberg in Zurich. The first part introduces 52 matano chandarvo textiles that belong to the textile collection of the Museum Rietberg. Production, iconography, function and distribution of these fascinating textiles are discussed in the remaining parts of this book and supported by photographs which were taken by the author in the late 1960s to 1982.
Fatehpur Sikri was founded in 1569 by the Mughal emperor Akbar, and served as the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1571 to 1585. Here the construction of a planned walled city took fifteen years to build a series of royal palaces, harem, courts, a mosque, private quarters and other utility buildings. It is one of the bestpreserved collections of Mughal architecture in India. In Fatehpur Sikri the complex of monuments and temples all in a uniform architectural style includes one of the largest mosques in India, the Jama Masjid. Within it is the tomb of Salim Chisti - many believe that he makes our wishes come true! Lucy Peck goes into the architectural magnificence of the city giving us the history behind the ‘forgotten’ or ‘ghost city’.

To understand the present context of the city the book takes on a series of walks giving you a chance to get a sense of the architectural legacy, as well as the dynamic interplay of civic life, religion, and trade in the city.

The Artistry of Handwork is dedicated to artisans for whom handwork is worship, creative expression and earnings. It is a collection of random images that gives the viewers joy at the sight of the simple beauty of handwork. The images depict crafting, weaving and other forms of artisanship.The silent, almost prayer-like meditative moments during production add to the many faceted worth of a crafted object. Jaya Jaitly belongs to Kerala, and graduated in English Literature from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, USA. She is the Founder-President of the Dastkari Haat Samiti, a nationwide association of craftspeople. She regularly speaks and writes on crafts, has published five books on handicrafts and one as selected writings on crafts, womenâ€™s empowerment, human and animal rights, social and political issues. She was in mainstream politics for 25 years and was the General Secretary, spokesperson and later President of the Samata Party.
Vijayanagara, once one of the mightiest Hindu empires, has now been reduced to a mere village. Through extensive research and restoration efforts, dedicated conservationists and the ASI have made every possible attempt to restore the lost brilliance of the Vijayanagara Empire. The splendid rocks and large boulders, together with the awe-inspiring royal architecture, confer on Hampi the rare accolade of being declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its natural beauty as well. Indeed, with the turbulent Tungabhadra river flowing on one side and rocks and boulders poised in an amazing balancing act, Hampi presents a sight to behold. In Vijayanagara Empire acclaimed photographer Raghu Rai, through his passionate response to the site, takes the reader on a visual experience akin to being transported into the world the way it must have existed centuries ago. His photographs have an archival and ancient feel to them, and yet succinctly capture not only the depths and details of the ruins but also fleeting experiences.
Science and Art are both manifestations of beauty and creativity. As mankind has evolved and as science has progressed, artistic creations by humans have become more abstract-like mathematics, which is the abstraction of all sciences. The authors of this unusual work postulate some critical ideas on science, art and aesthetics, and establish that we need both, a scientific temper and the temper of art. The eight theses that relate to science and art, and their rationale presented in this book are a culmination of observations, conversations, readings, ideas exchanged, and thoughts that span a journey of six decades. The accompanying DVD is a reproduction of two shows held in Hyderabad of MF Husainâ€™s 25 paintings on some of the most important events of the last century with their description as written by Bhargava. The CD records the music Susumo Ohno, an American geneticist, created by converting the language of DNA into the language of music.
The Tale of Masha and Vanya Russian Fairy-Tales, Retold and Illustrated by E. D. Polenova Elena Polenova, translated by Netta Peacock In the 1880s, the artist, designer and illustrator Elena Polenova (1850-98) began illustrating fairy tales that she noted down during her travels around Russian villages. The first of these was The Tale of Masha and Vanya. The original editions of some of these illustrated fairy-tales are now kept at Polenovo, the museumestate of the artist’s family, and this is the first English-language publication based upon Polenova’s original hand-made drawings and typography. Sister of the landscape artist Vasily Polenov, and a leading member of the Abramtsevo circle of Russian artists, who engaged with peasant traditions and folklore towards the end of the nineteenth century, Elena Polenova is well known in Russia and abroad, but her illustrations for fairy tales have had little exposure. With a new translation, this beautifully crafted book is published to coincide with an exhibition in the UK of the artist’s work.

More than a fashion accessory or means to tell the time, the wristwatch has become a statement of identity and speaks volumes about who you are. The World’s Most Expensive Watches by Ariel Adams, owner and editor of aBlogtoWatch.com presents some of the most extravagant, intricate, collectible, decadent, or just plain interesting modern-day timepieces that sit at the top of the price spectrum. Starting at a threshold price of about $200,000, it is a trip through the last decade or so of watches whose values soar incredibly to prices of $5 million dollars or more. Additionally, there is a selection of notable watches that yielded extremely high prices at auction - many of which are historically relevant. 21st-Century Jewellery Designers: An Inspired Style is a stunning survey of the contemporary jewelry that’s being designed and created across the world today. From the great JAR, to James de Givenchy and Nicholas Varney in the West, and Michelle Ong, Wallace Chan and Bhagat in the East, 21stCentury Jewellery Designers: An Inspired Style is an exploration into the designers’ worlds, helping the reader to discover the jewels that great jewelry artists are creating now. Interviews with each designer featured reveal their inspirations and passions, their favorite materials, designing processes, and how their personalities influence their designs.
From Empress Farah and the secrets of the treasure of Iran, to Queen Marie Amélie’s missing emeralds, entering the world of Van Cleef & Arpels is like embarking upon a fascinating treasure hunt. In this book, Vincent Meylan explores a century in the history of one of the most prestigious Parisian jewelry dynasties. The Maharani of Baroda, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlene Dietrich, Princess Grace of Monaco, Maria Callas and the Countess of Camargo: they are all the heroines of this incredible epic. Van Cleef & Arpels: Treasures and Legends is full of extravagant fairytales and fascinating behind-the-scenes revelations. It also tells the sometimes troubled story of a dynasty of jewelers, who have, for over a century, helped to shape that inimitably Parisian art de vivre that is the envy of the world. A classic Antique Collectors’ Club title, Understanding Jewellery is unique in explaining why jewelry values vary and the individual points important for each category. Explanations are given in a straightforward, uncomplicated manner with a text largely linked directly to specific illustrations. This makes the assimilation of the information much easier than in traditional text-dominated books. The authors, both jewelry experts, evaluate many millions of dollars’ worth annually and thus handle a complete cross-section of what is available on the market. They have selected the hundreds of superb color illustrations to show what to look for and, equally important, what to avoid. Whether interested in the history of fashion, deciding what to buy or simply to enjoy a visual feast of beautiful objects, this book will serve as an invaluable reference and represents outstanding value.

Michele della Valle is unquestionably one of the leading jewelers working today. He is famed for his appreciation of rare and unusual gemstones and it is his quest for and discovery of those gems that forms the heart of every piece he makes. This book is an autobiography, told through pictures, of della Valle’s influences and above all his spectacular jewelry creations. “A story in pictures that spoke of my adventurous travels to exotic countries in search of rare and precious stones. I hope it will succeed in telling you about me, about my work, about my emotions and the myths that inspired me. It is not a boring autobiography but rather a dream in colors. It is precisely from these dreams my jewels are born”.
Very rarely does a jewelry artist manage to find new pictorial worlds of such a personal nature during the course of their creative work so freely and unencumbered as Daniel Kruger. His experiments with the most diverse materials, decoration, forms and structures testify to an exuberant creativity. Daniel Kruger uses found objects of every kind, or quotes historical forms and decoration. The works illustrate Daniel Kruger’s curiosity with unconventional techniques and materials; they are also an expression of his awareness of nature and artificiality, history and tales, tradition and the present: sometimes ironic, at times restrained, but frequently also opulent and sensual. Jewelry and drawings are central to Iris Bodemer’s creative designs. She experiments with a diverse range of materials, but her focus is not the value of the material but rather the possibilities for creative use and expression. Iris Bodemer brings colors and textures together to become one work, independent and unique; providing a reference point within a rapidly changing information-based modern society. She consciously refrains from commenting on her work, allowing her designs to make their own statement. The artifacts in this collection are varied and present an overview of her work. They stand as reference points in our modern fluctuating information-based society.
Published to accompany an exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, this catalogue is the first to examine the union of contemporary jewelry and the photographic image, demonstrating how each of these mediums is informed and enlarged by an engagement with the other. The works included, both historical pieces and recent creations by over eighty international art jewelers, suggest the richness of this encounter and the artistic strength embodied in this dynamic combination of object and image.
Cosmic Debris Meteorites and Jewellery Objects by Reinhold Ziegler Halvor Nordby, André Gali
In his work, Reinhold Ziegler (born in 1965) explores the meaning of jewelry. Through the reduction of visual forms of expression, his works go beyond the purely decorative. His jewelry is not intended to reflect the individual personality of the wearer, but to link the individual with the universal.

Winfried Krüger No Title Cornelie Holzach et al.
The narrative Eitzenhöfer strives for is one of social criticism, her designs are perceived as opulent yet reflect a certain image or concept inherent in the modern world. She has consistently challenged and explored the themes of freedom, time, sensuality and worth in her work. This volume is a collection of designs that range from her earlier creative work to the last ten years; thought-provoking, imaginative and often extreme, this is jewelry as a social statement, rather than an accessory.
Winfried Krüger (born 1944) belongs to that generation of jewelry artists who witnessed the birth of avant-garde jewelry in the 1960s. The skilled goldsmith liberated himself from precision, fineness and other virtues of his craft in order to allow free rein to his creativity.

For Krüger jewelry is ever-present; he finds inspiration in all things. Translated into metal, extraordinary artworks are then created.
The Jewish Wetzlar family from Munich had a renowned silverware shop with an adjoining workshop. In 1938, the family were forced to abandon the business due to the ethnic cleansing in Germany of all Jews throughout the WWII. They emigrated to London, thereby escaping persecution but losing their livelihood. The purpose of this volume is a long overdue celebration of their wonderfully creative and original silver work and to set it in its historical context; a recognition of their importance and influence in the history of silver craftsmanship and design. As well as detailing the history of both the family and the company they founded, this is a presentation of the incredible range of their creative work, held both in public and private collections.

Antique Sealed Bottles is a volume that unlocks history through the identification of unique seals, using crests and coats of arms as the ‘keys’ to identifying the original owner.

A dazzling collection of modern glass was gifted to National Museums Scotland by Alan J. Poole and Dan Klein in 2009. Their collecting began in the late 1970s and over the subsequent 30 years they assembled one of the most comprehensive collections of modern British and Irish glass. Dan Klein held directorships in Christie’s auction house and, among other appointments, was Professor of Glass and Ceramics at the University of Sunderland for eleven years. He was one of the first people to collect and write about British post-war glass. Together with Alan J.Poole he formed a company to promote contemporary glass with an emphasis on the work of artists from Britain and Ireland including Sam Herman, Alison Kinnaird, Colin Reid, Karl Herron, David Reekie, Katharine Coleman and Tessa Clegg.
The creations of silversmiths Rob and Jaap Thalen are inspired by the beautiful landscapes of the Ardennes and the sometimes harsh climate that fashions them. The tactile surfaces of their creations are reminiscent of the harrowing landscapes, the wild brooks and sometimes even the ruptured clay left behind in a dry river bed. The purity and apparent simplicity of their designs give their work the semblance of effortlessness; it is a testament to their excellent craftsmanship.

The manufacture of colorfully painted tiles has a long tradition in Persia, modern-day Iran. This publication focuses on so-called haft rang (seven colors) tiles from the 18th and 19th centuries. During this time, the art of making tiles experienced a revival, starting in the city of Shiraz and initiated primarily by unknown artists who wanted to preserve and carry on their country’s traditions. Their vibrantly colored tiles, with underglaze, decorated private homes, as well as public and religious buildings. The tiles are characterized by a wealth of pictorial elements, with floral motifs as well as motifs from traditional Persian folktales. Social change and a disregard for Iranian architecture and traditions at the beginning of the twentieth century led to the destruction of many old town quarters and to the disappearance of this impressive art. Hadi Seif visited the direct descendants of the tile makers and presents his findings in this book.
The Ming dynasty (1368-1644) was a period of important social transformation that resulted in a thriving consumer culture, and was the starting point of modern China. Exquisite luxury items and rare objects reveal the wealth and opulence of the Ming imperial court. These include the iconic blue and white porcelain with which the Ming period is synonymous. Many forms of visual art and handicraft flourished at this time: sumptuous textiles, gold and jades, and elaborately enamelled cloisonné. Beautiful furniture, musical instruments, Buddhist artifacts and items of personal adornment also help to bring to life the elegant tastes and concerns of this gilded age. Published to accompany an exhibition at the National Museums of Scotland, Summer 2014.
Since first published in 1991 Pocket Jackson’s, as it is most often called, has enjoyed enormous success and is constantly rated as a best seller in the Arts & Antiques category. During the last 23 years important developments have taken place in the Hallmarking system. Most notably the introduction within Europe of a universally accepted system of marking has lead not only to the addition of new marks, but also, to a change of status of several historic marks. This edition brings up to the present day all the date letters and commemorative marks. It also includes the recently introduced marks for Palladium and a section illustrating the Assay Office identification marks of those countries that are signatories to the International Convention marking system. In addition and of importance are the changes made in the early cycles of Dublin date letters which result from recent research by silver scholars in Ireland.

Seeing Butterflies Philip Howse
ISBN: 9781906506469 Papadakis Publisher 9.5 x 7.5in. 176pp. col. October 2014, $19.99 Paperback
Insect predators such as birds see a greater range of colors than we do and focus on details rather than whole objects. Engraved on the wings of many butterflies and moths, among the rainbow colors and the opalescence, are images that closely resemble millipedes, salamanders, frogs, snakes, falcons, spiders, hornets, bats, large canine teeth, claws, caterpillars, wolves, and owls. Philip Howse explains how these colors and designs have evolved and how the insects are protected by such camouflage, mimicry and deception. An appendix provides a simple identification guide to British and European butterflies and to familiar tropical species. This new way of looking at these beautiful and iconic insects and the superb images will inform and inspire nature-lovers, photographers, artists and scientists.

Eight hundred years ago King John of England was forced to seal a document of historic importance. As the first charter to grant individual liberties under the rule of law, Magna Carta is the most influential and far-reaching legal text the world has ever known. For this book, published with the support of the UK Magna Carta Trust and marking the 800th anniversary of the charter’s first issue, Professor Nicholas Vincent is joined by a range of experts on Magna Carta from across the world to reflect on the circumstances of its genesis and its enduring significance. Magna Carta was serially reinterpreted by later generations, becoming a totem in fierce political debates on the liberties of the people - it became a sacred text for English puritans of the Civil War, for the American patriots of the War of Independence, and for all those in the English-speaking world who have striven to build democratic rights and freedoms in the post-colonial age.

The Foundation of Freedom 1215-2015
The 93 Lewis chessmen, bought by the British Museum and by what is now the National Museum of Scotland in the mid-19th century, were made in 12th-century Scandinavia, from ivory and whales’ teeth. They continue to fascinate academics from various disciplines. As David Caldwell says: ‘The beauty of the Lewis chessmen and their significance in the development of the game of chess are factors which have overshadowed other matters relating to their origin and provenance.’ So the chapters in this scholarly book look, for example, at the landscape of Scotland’s western seaboard, at medieval politics and kingship and at the ivory trade in the north Atlantic as the time the chessmen were made.

The Moorish Castle is a military fortification that bears witness to the Islamic presence in the region, and was probably constructed between the 8th and 9th centuries and later expanded after the Reconquista.

Howard Carter’s excavation of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 was one of the most significant archeological discoveries of the 20th century. This book tells the story of the search for Tutankhamun’s tomb and its discovery using Howard Carter’s excavation records that were deposited in the archives of the Griffith Institute at the University of Oxford. Against this backdrop of scholarship, the book also explores the phenomenon of ‘Tut-mania’, when the world was gripped by all things Tutankhamun, from jewelry and clothing to curses. In the final section, the authors reevaluate what the tomb’s contents can tell us about the king and his time, and explores projects that have in recent years sought to ensure the preservation of Tutankhamun’s tomb and its contents for future generations. The Face of the Earth is a book ‘posthumously’ written by the father of modern geology, Eduard Suess, who died on 26 April 1914. He was not only influential in geosciences but also in society. As a politician he initiated the construction of a new water supply system for Vienna (and many other major projects). Many of his most important theses are still valid today. He created concepts like the Thetis ocean, Gondwana-Land, biosphere, the Continental Breakup or the so-called Long Distance Correlation. The Face of the Earth provides a snapshot of his legacy and highlights what remains today of his vision that is relevant to the theme of the face of the earth in the 21st century; it cuts across all disciplines, presents quotes of the excellent writer Suess, commented on by some of today’s most important geologists, mirrored and anchored in fantastic photographs. This is not an Arab Spring. This is an Arab Revolution of the magnitude of the French Revolution. Historian, political observer and opinion-maker Koert Debeuf draws this conclusion from three years of living and working in the heart of the Arab world. This book gives unique insight into the real fights and frustrations of the Arab Revolution. It shows how blogs and social media can change the course of history, how individuals do make a difference and why the Arab Revolution is just the beginning of a profound transformation. In a foreword, Guy Verhofstadt, president of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, sets out a new vision of European cooperation with the Arab world. On the occasion of the discovery of logarithms 400 years ago, the Arithmeum in Bonn presents a selection of the collection by Ijzebrand Schuitemas (1929-2013), which contains more than 4,000 slide rules. The exhibition catalogue introduces the brilliant idea of the slide rule, shows its interesting history and deals with the diversity of this calculating instrument, which became indispensable for numerous professional groups and which were still used in various ways until well into the 20th century. The introduction of the calculator meant the demise of this historically and culturally fascinating object.

In 1949 a young Hungarian immigrant arrived in Belgium, with just a few dollars in his pocket. Fleeing from communist repression in his own country, Alexandre Lamfalussy had come to Leuven to study economics. From these modest beginnings, he succeeded in working his way up to become not only chairman of the board of directors of the Bank of Brussels, but also one of the fathers of the euro and an internationally respected economist. In this book, the Belgian baron tells his life story in a series of interviews never previously published. His testimony covers the history of many different countries, from Belgium to Hungary, and is the tale of one of the truly great Europeans, who strove to reunite the continent following the tragedy of the Second World War. The First World War is hugely significant to India’s history. Largely considered a European war, it actually involved the participation of more than 100 countries. In 1914 it was thought by Indian political leaders that offering support to the British would further the cause of India’s independence. Accordingly, Indian soldiers were sent to fight alongside the British. Though mentally ill-equipped to deal with an emotional and physical relocation as vast as this, Indian soldiers fought valiantly. The author Captain Amarinder Singh is a published military historian; he retraces the footsteps of the Indian battalions during the First World War, using official battle details, war diaries, and maps.
The Indian National Congress believed that supporting Britain’s war efforts during WWI would benefit India’s move towards independence. As a result, over a million Indian men were deployed to fight for the British. Post the war, Britain’s refusal to grant India home rule created hostility among the Indians towards them. This dissent eventually paved way for the Indian independence movement. For the first time India’s contribution to the First World War is carefully documented with details of the different theaters in which Indian soldiers took part. Using first-hand accounts such as letters home and incredible photos, the authors reconstruct the story of a war which was as much India’s as it was Britain’s. Situated at the top of a hill, following the wishes of Ferdinand II of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, king consort and husband of Queen Maria II, Pena Park and Palace are Portugal’s greatest examples of 19th-century Romanticism and the most important element in the cultural landscape of Sintra - World Heritage Site. The building of the palace began in 1839 around the ruins of an old Hieronymite monastery erected in the 16th century by King Manuel I and acquired by Ferdinand. It incorporates architectural references of Manueline and Moorish influences. The modest initial plans to restore the building as a summer residence for the royal family progressed to the eventual building of a grand palace. The decorative tastes of King Fernando II, along with those of the last Queen of Portugal, are evident in the decoration of the interiors, through which this book provides a fascinating tour.

Raw data is bewildering by itself, it means nothing, it scares and confuses. Human intellect rationalizes the immense continuum of its surroundings by means of categorizations. With this concept in mind, this book represents a challenging proposal: it is the attempt to find a cultural pattern for each country of the EU stated on the distinctiveness of the statistics, the arbitrariness of the samples and the persistency of the stereotypes. This book is meant as a search for the hidden and the subtle, setting out on a quest for a bird’s eye view, and as a way to heed details, however small. Geographic Europe is a book filled with dazzling trivia and curiosities; it embraces our national identities - in their economical, cultural and political aspects - and delivers them in a fun, informative and immediate way. Richly illustrated, this book contains the papers read at the conference ‘Textiles of the Nile Valley’. The first part is devoted to textiles from excavations, the second part of the book covers research on textiles in public collections, the third part carries articles concerning textile techniques and radiocarbon dating, the following part is dedicated to iconographical studies and the last parts deal with special items of costume and footwear. Cäcilia Fluck specializes in late antique art from Egypt. She works for the Skulpturensammlung und Museum für Byzantinische Kunst, Staatliche Museen in Berlin.
During the Second World War, the German occupiers built a coastal defence line along the Dutch, Belgian and French seaboards. The Atlantic Wall was designed to protect the Reich against an Allied invasion. Yet the coastal population suddenly found itself living in a Sperrgebiet of immense strategic importance, as a result of which the dunes and the beaches became no-go zones. Despite the countless restrictions the residents of the coast tried to continue life as normal. The result of a twoyear European research project, The Occupied Coast chronicles life behind the Atlantic Wall. Drawing on over 100 Belgian, French, Dutch, British and German testimonies, four historians describe the wartime experiences of the coastal population and the impact of the Atlantic Wall upon daily life. The centennial anniversary of MIT Sloan presents an ideal time to reflect on a history of extraordinary achievement. MIT Sloan: Celebrating Our Past, Inventing The Future revisits people and programs, break throughs and discoveries, with an eye fixed on the next 100 years. It provides a definitive account of the legacy of Course XV and the powerful influence it has had on shaping the future. Over the past century, MIT Sloan faculty, students, alumni, and staff have made significant and lasting contributions to the field of management and management education. We pay tribute to those individuals and groups whose ideas and work changed thought, theory, and practice.

This is the tale of a medieval masterpiece. York Minster boasts one of the great artistic achievements of the Middle Ages.

Specially commissioned as the Minster received a generous grant to clean and preserve this masterwork, Apocalypse reproduces the entire cycle in color for the first time.

Many of the libraries of the ancient colleges of Cambridge and Oxford boast remarkable collections of historic manuscripts, printed books and even non-book artifacts, making them effectively working museums in their own right. Among them St John’s College, Cambridge, has one of the finest of all. For this richly illustrated volume the treasures of the library have been newly photographed in the finest detail. Fifty of them are featured here, each with expert commentary by a leading academic authority. The Library Treasures of St John’s College, Cambridge makes many of these historic items available to a general readership for the very first time and is essential reading for anybody interested in the history, the development and the art of the book. William Gladstone, King Edward VII of England, Winston Churchill - if the roll call of visitors to Warren House, one of the finest Victorian stately homes in the south of England, is impressive, then the wider cast of characters associated with the House and its owners is a veritable Who’s Who of the political, cultural and social elite of their day. This is a social tale of individual lives, enriched by the first-hand accounts of two former residents nurse Lilian Philips who lived and worked at the House during the Second World War, and former Serbian refugee - now Canadian citizen Bill Pazaratz. The fascinating text is enriched by beautiful illustrations of the House and its splendid gardens, past and present.
Founded in 1979, the Weekly World News was an irreverent tabloid newspaper that played with sensationalist conventions in tabloid journalism. Iconic in its design and infamous in its content, it ran for twenty-eight years, and at its peak it had a circulation of 1.2 million per issue. It ceased to appear in print form in 2007, but has maintained its cult status with an online presence. (Recent startling stories include President Obama’s Executive Order to begin carving his face on Mount Rushmore.) Weekly World News is now operated by Neil McGinness, formerly of National Lampoon, and it continues to generate the best of subversive but good-natured urban legends, trash tales and satirical pop culture stories - highlighting the absurdity of today’s celebrity obsessed tabloids.

Mindfulness In the Maelstrom of Life Edel Maex, with a preface by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness finds its origins in Buddhist meditation techniques. Instead of trying to achieve goals that lie far ahead in the future, mindfulness teaches you to be present in the moment, with a compassionate and open mind. This book, consisting of short and airy texts, follows the eight weeks of the traditional stress reduction programme as it was developed by dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of the mindfulness movement. Based on his many years of experience as a psychiatrist, Edel Maex has written a clear, concise and heartfelt guide to mindfulness, that will help you to deal differently with the unavoidable agitations of life. With a preface by Jon Kabat-Zinn. “I bow to Edel Maex for writing this lovely book, and for all his efforts to bring mindfulness in an authentic and universal articulation, based on his own years of meditation practice and study, more and more into the mainstream of medicine, psychiatry, and Western culture.” Jon Kabat-Zinn, Professor of Medicine Emeritus and founding director of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

“This book invites the reader to make an appointment with himself, in an open and welcoming spirit. It seems so simple... In reality, this requires, as any other form of training, the daily discipline to perform mindful exercises and meditations. Edel Maex gives us different keys to sit, to maintain and to develop our mindfulness practice, with an exceptional clarity and a lot of wisdom. An admirably clear, didactic book. I would recommend it to all participants of our MBCT-courses and their instructors.” Lucio Bizzini, Ph.D, Department of Psychiatry, University Hospital of Geneva.

“The economy has to keep growing.” So says top economist Peter De Keyzer. In his view, a free market and intelligent growth are necessary for our continued wealth and well-being. Better yet: economic growth is the only recipe for guaranteeing more freedom and more prosperity for all. Nevertheless, after nearly five years of crisis, one no longer seems to believe in economic progress. Growth Makes You Happy is a solidly argued plea in favor of more optimism, more risk, less collectivism, and more freedom.

It looks at the organizational problems of running a voluntary social enterprise dependent on the engagement of volunteer staff and clients. This is not just ‘another book about youth problems’. Instead, it is a critical analysis of our modern world, exploring the root causes (cultural, political, social) of the current pressures on young people in today’s society and the way in which these are being met.

In Berlin, the city divided after World War II, everybody knows about the Brandenburg Gate, Hitler’s bunker, splendidly broad boulevards, and numerous lakes. But this metropolis encompasses many niches characteristic of a heterogeneous city. It is often these miniscule witnesses that tell authentic history. Besides the larger attractions, this unusual guide presents Berlin’s other side - such as a tower so ugly that no-one wants to open a restaurant in it; a library offering its books in the trunks of living trees; the monument for the inventor of the currywurst; the house where David Bowie lived; a museum for things used for purposes for which they were not created; the reception camp for refugees from East Germany - and, in a completely unexpected spot, the most romantic place in Berlin. Although the singular brutality of the Nazi dictatorship symbolizes ruthlessness beyond all boundaries, one often searches for its visible traces. This special guide through “Brown” Berlin identifies many of them: where swastika flags and yellow stars were manufactured, where the SS played soccer with skulls, where the Nazis hoarded their bars of gold, where Hermann Göring’s extravagant wedding was celebrated, or what was taught in the Reich School for Brides. This book puts particular emphasis on the courageous Berliners who concealed Jews in the face of mortal danger, or dared to rise up openly against the Gestapo and the SS, and which Jewish organizations saved the lives of children and others. A poignant city guide to places that must never be forgotten. Hamburg, Germany’s second-largest city, was always one of Europe’s biggest harbors. So it’s no wonder that sailors yarns and merchants fantasies have left their traces in the granary district, on the Reeperbahn, in the sailors churches, and on the mudflats. But Hamburg is more than seagulls and salty air, as this book will show you: there are 1,000 year-old oaktrees, and 14,000 year-old residential settlements; how do ships get into bottles? Which supermarket shelters Jewish graves? Which former Nazi bunker now harbors a restaurant? There is a monument to the conflagration of 1943, a building that’s reminiscent of Turkish cucumber salad in hot sauce, and a tower looks just like a veritable TRex: all this is Hamburg. Almost everybody knows Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and the Tower Bridge. But the secret London which shapes the flair of the capital of the British Empire is getting harder and harder to find. This guide elucidates unknown aspects of well-known places, and explores the London unknown to foreigners and, in part, to natives. Such as bars with noble origins going back for centuries; 300 year-old wine shops and synagogues; mosques and Buddhist temples; a tree planted in 1802; a medieval cemetery for pariahs; a street lantern which has been lit for more than 100 years; the monument to 10,000 Jewish children saved from the Nazis, and one for the Great Fire of 1666; legal and illegal street art; or the crypt in which skulls and bones are arranged in a checkerboard pattern. Unknown London from the Middle Ages until today - brand new.

This book shows - besides curiosities about better-known sights - locations where apartment houses hang over cliffs, where you can meet the devil, or particularly strong women, and where, perhaps for this reason, a church is standing on its head; where a bridge which is millions of years old arches over the sea, where citizens are guarded by a grimacing face, where secret medieval orders left their traces, on which mountains three cloisters, as old as the hills, are stuck above each other like “swallows’ nests”, or - speaking of cloisters - in which one Chopin’s piano still stands today. Many people think that Munich means beer, beer, another beer - and the Alps. They might also recognize a church, a castle or two, but these edifices only reveal half of the story. The real Munich is hidden behind them, embodied by fountains, monuments, alleyways. Here, one finds out, for instance, where in Munich a house with 1,000 plaster figures is, where hallucinations are guaranteed, where you can find out what your genetic fingerprint is, where there is an experimental brewery, where a maker of artistic cabinets tried, all by himself, to blow up Adolf Hitler (and unfortunately failed); or which cowards “Coward Street” is named after. Whoever would like to get to know the city beyond beer stains and Our Lady’s Cathedral will find fantastic discoveries in this book. Theater, pigtailed wigs and Mozart - there is far more to Salzburg than that. This guide to the more intimate aspects of Salzburg will lead you to places known, at best, only to the natives, and often not even to them - such as a network of medieval tunnels, chamois living in freedom in the middle of town, even living urban flamingos and a quarry yielding one of the most precious kinds of marble in the world. This extraordinary guide will tell you which church alter a human skull is walled into, about where the Doppler Effect comes from, where the only outdoor organ pulls out all its stops, where defenceless women were burned as witches in the 17th century, which house, with a width of 1.42 meters, is the city’s smallest, and finally, where Mozart thought up “The Magic Flute”.
Wiener Schnitzel, apple strudel, the Prater, Schönbrunn, and the Beautiful Blue Danube? The Viennese are proud of the fact that in Austria’s capital, the sights are really worth seeing. Beyond the well-trodden paths, however, a completely unknown, kinky, even morbid Vienna can be found: a slaughterhouse in which singer Leonard Cohen was once a squatter; an 18th-century looney bin shaped like a UFO; a store for erotic underwear in an Archbishop’s palace; Trotsky’s garden; narrow 16th-century alleyways and, of course, all the Kafka, coffeehouse culture, and Klimt you can wish for; famous assassinations and grim reminders of the Nazi past. This guide introduces you to a Vienna which is still alive although it’s bursting with history - the pulsating city which many consider the most beautiful in Central Europe.

Every year 20 million tourists are drawn to Rome. They admire the Colosseum and St. Peter’s Cathedral, sit on the Spanish Staircase, and stroll along the Campo de Fiori. But the Eternal City offers still more: clandestine spots, stories sunk into oblivion. Why, for example, is there a lighthouse, although Rome is not on the ocean? Where is the grave of Pope Joan? What does the hangman’s cloak have to tell? What landmark was nearly stolen? Where do you get rewarded for impossible misbehavior? And why is the world’s oldest baby hatch here, of all places? This book will bring you to spots that will show you the city from a completely new side - the city where everybody wants to be at least once in his life.
Why are half of the bars in Barcelona called “Frankfurt”, why is chocolate booming here, and why do the people of Barcelona never write their names on their doorbells? where can you find the most unusual souvenirs? What happens at night in the Egyptian Museum? This book will lead you to places in the Catalonian capital for which you will look in vain in conventional travel guides. Even the Catalonians themselves can find surprises in this book.

The Wisdom of Wine Simon Drew
Simon Drew would like to be considered a very wise man. His evidence is that “wise men drink wine” and nobody could be more dedicated to prolonging this state of (dis)graceful wisdom than Simon. He is certain that wine is an excellent aid to inspiration for his word plays, puzzles and drawings. For Simon, “less is never more. More is always more. Less is always less. This is more or less true.” Such wisdom comes to him after several glasses of wine. Simon has produced this book with due reverence to all viticulturists, vintners, publicans, restaurateurs, bon viveurs and to the god Bacchus and hopes to demonstrate that the way of the wise man is the path through the vineyard. He is fond of quoting a saying oft repeated by his grand-mother (a reformed Methodist and born-again drinker): “I have no pain now, mother dear, but – oh I am so dry! Connect me to the vintner’s tap and leave me here to die” (or words to that effect).
ISBN: 9781851497768 Antique Collectors’ Club 6.25 x 8.5in. 48pp., 50 col. August 2014, $14.95 Hardcover
So enjoy the book. Simon suggests you open a bottle of St Emilion, put your feet up, abandon all hope of good sense and read in a disorderly manner.
Curtain of Rain Tew Bunnag
Two lives, fatefully interlinked; two sets of memories, in danger of being lost. Clare Stone’s past has suddenly caught up with her. When a long-suppressed memory comes vividly alive, she finds herself being pulled back to the place of its origin: Bangkok. There she meets Tarrin Wandee, the writer whose book unsettled her. But have they met before, all those years ago, when she was young, idealistic and dangerously naïve? And so their stories unfold in a steady rhythm between the past and the present, fiction and reality, in relief against the pulsating backdrop of Bangkok itself. All our lives are linked; it’s just a question of how. Moody and atmospheric, Curtain of Rain is a story of politics, power and greed, and the search for meaning, and redemption. Tew Bunnag is an author and journalist and writes for many international papers, including The Independent. His previous novels include the acclaimed Fragile Days and he has also written a number of non-fiction titles. ISBN: 9786167339498 River Books 5.5 x 8.25in. 224pp. June 2014, $15.00 Paperback

Heart of Darkness
Young lawyer Jonathan Harker is summoned to the castle of Dracula to advise the Count on his relocation to England; he soon finds himself imprisoned and terrified. In this fast-paced gothic horror, with undertones of sex, violence and colonial politics, Stoker has taken the folklore figure of the vampire and transformed him into an immortal icon.
Few narratives can rival the way in which Shelley’s gothic masterpiece captures the human imagination; it is powerful and thoughtprovoking. In Frankenstein, the creature that has become the grotesque caricature we all know so well raises pertinent questions about science and responsibility that are more relevant today than ever before.
In Heart of Darkness, English seaman Marlow tells the story of his time as a riverboat captain for a trading company on the Congo. On his journey, Marlow discovers not only the barbaric treatment of the natives at the hands of the Europeans, but also the darkness in every human soul. The novel is a fascinating exploration of imperialism and human nature.
Jane Eyre is ‘obscure, plain and little’. Despite her seeming lack of charm, her strong spirit makes an indelible impression. The uncompromising yet restrained first-person narrative of Jane Eyre powerfully allies one with the heroine and instils an earnest desire to see Jane clear of the many trials, betrayals and cruelties she must endure.

Gustave Flaubert Translated by Eleanor Marx Often described as the perfect novel, Madame Bovary is said to have had a profound influence on modern fiction. It relates the tale of a bored and unsatisfied woman, struggling to find contentment in 19th-century middle-class French society. To cope with the emptiness of her existence she embarks on a series of disastrous affairs and runs up huge debts. ISBN: 9781909399082 5.25 x 7.5in., 400pp. October 2014, $15.00 Paperback
Fyodor Dostoyevsky Translated by Constance Garnett Notes from the Underground is celebrated as the first existentialist novel. Dostoyevsky’s most revolutionary work is comprised of the rambling memories of a bitter unnamed narrator who has withdrawn entirely from society into an underground existence.

The Good Soldier Ford Madox Ford John Dowell, the narrator of this novel, is attempting to recount the saddest story he has ever heard; he is incessantly interrupted by his own haphazard ramblings and casual musings. The Good Soldier is so clearly the work of a master of composition and a remarkably rewarding and unique reading experience. ISBN: 9781909399266 5.25 x 7.5in., 240pp. October 2014, $15.00 Paperback
The Scarlet Letter Nathaniel Hawthorne This powerful gothic drama, set in Puritan Boston, tells the story of Hester Prynne, who conceives a daughter through an adulterous affair with an unnamed man. The Scarlet Letter’s themes of hypocrisy, women’s role in society and the destructive power of guilt are as relevant as ever, making Hester Prynne a classic heroine with a great deal to say to the twenty-first century reader.

The Hound of the Baskervilles
The Picture of Dorian Gray
Arthur Conan Doyle
The Hound of the Baskervilles is the ultimate in detective fiction. The family is cursed; at least that is the hypothesis when Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead, the footprints of some ferocious beast beside his body. It is down to Holmes to solve the mystery of the killing, before the hound returns to claim the heir to Baskerville Hall.
Wilde’s only novel posits the idea that the only thing worth pursuing is beauty. Dorian Gray, entranced by the perfection of his portrait, makes a Faustian bargain whereby the figure on the canvas ages in his place. Gray embarks upon a spree of cruelty and debauchery which marks only the portrait’s face; Gray’s beauty remains intact.
The Prince is Niccolò Machiavelli’s handbook on power and politics. This treatise, which gave rise to the term ‘Macchiavellian’, spurns idealism and presents a brave, pragmatic and at times brutal guide to governance. Still controversial to this day, The Prince has had a remarkable influence on modern political thought.

The Thirty-Nine Steps
Franz Kafka Translated by David Wylie
John Buchan Europe is close to war and spies are everywhere. Richard Hannay encounters Scudder, a stranger who has discovered a plot to assassinate the Greek Premier. When Scudder is found dead, Hannay is the obvious suspect. Burdened with this terrible secret he must run. He heads for the moors of Scotland where he must use his wits to grapple his way out of a number of sticky situations.
On his 30th birthday, Josef K. is arrested for an unspecified crime. Kafka brings us a nightmarish vision of the irrationality and blindness of bureaucracy in 20th-century totalitarian regimes; the narrative is driven by a terrifying inevitability, pushing the protagonist towards a meaningless demise. The Trial is an existential masterpiece that resonates strongly with modern audiences.

Niccolò Machiavelli; Translated by W.K. Marriot
Emily Brontë Critics were initially baffled as to how a novel such as Wuthering Heights, filled with dark places and wild brooding people could become so dear to so many hearts. It is now regarded as a masterpiece of English literature; its depiction of class and money stifling human relationships leading to misery and corruption still resonates powerfully today.
