Wordsworth’s Gardens and Flowers The Spirit of Paradise

Peter Dale and Brandon C. Yen

A

book that debunks the popular myth that William Wordsworth was, first and foremost, a poet of daffodils, Wordsworth’s Gardens and Flowers: The Spirit of Paradise, provides a vivid account of Wordsworth as a gardening poet who not only wrote about gardens and flowers but also designed - and physically worked in - his gardens. This is a book of two halves. The first section focuses on the gardens that Wordsworth made at Grasmere and Rydal in the English Lake District, and also in Leicestershire, at Coleorton. The gardens are explored via his poetry and prose and the journals of his sister, Dorothy Wordsworth. In the second half of the book, the reader learns more of Wordsworth’s use of flowers in his poetry. Throughout, the engaging, accessible text is woven around illustrations that bring Wordsworth’s gardens and flowers to life, including rare botanical prints, many reproduced here for the first time in several decades.

Dangerous Women Mary D. Garrard and Kimberly L. Dennis

T

he Old and New Testaments are full of compelling female characters: good wives and bad, courageous heroines, and deceptive - sometimes deadly - femmes fatales. Dangerous Women presents works from the rich holdings of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art that explore different artists’ responses to the women of the Bible. Paintings by Pietro da Cortona, Francesco Cairo, and Fede Galizia and others stand as a reminder of how dangerous biblical women have continued to loom large in the modern imagination. These stories in this volume show how narratives of power are constructed, interpreted, and continue to evolve over the course of time. While some women saved their people, were paragons of virtue, or repented, others were purveyors of sin, harlots, and seductresses. Even if it was through their misbehavior, all of these women - from Mary Magdalene, to Judith and Esther, to Salome and Potiphar’s Wife shaped biblical history. ACC DISTRIBUTION SPRING 2018

Through photographs, words and recipes, Giulia tells the story of Florence’s historic markets, local organic farmers’ markets, and the weekly market days held in Tuscan towns and villages. She also explores Tuscany’s coastal fish and seafood markets, together with the roadside vendors of the Maremma area, with their vibrant fresh fruit and vegetable stands.

hat could be simpler than a pan’ino? Take some bread and butter, slice it through the middle and fill it. But when Alessandro Frassica thinks about his pan’ino, he considers it in a different way, not as a shortcut, but as an instrument for telling stories. Because even if the sandwich is simple, it is not necessarily easy to create… Alessandro searches for ingredients, and in the foods he finds people: producers of pecorino cheese from Benevento, anchovies from Cetara, ‘nduja spicy salami from Calabria. Then he studies the combinations, the consistencies and the temperature, because a pan’ino is not just a random object; savory must be complemented by sweet; bread should be warmed but not dried; thus the sandwich becomes a simple way of saying many excellent things, including finding a complexity of flavors that can thrill in just one bite.

degustation dinners every month. Resplendent with stunningly detailed photography, Isadora Chai’s cookbook explores her gastro gourmand’s take on a delicious array of superbly satirical but infinitely edible recipes. She details many sophisticated, very passionate, and innovative culinary surprises, including a wide range of dishes directly reversed, such as the Reversed Sushi and the Reversed Root Beer Float, where the proportions of the components and the composition of wellknown dishes are reversed. Other menus reflect the heady worlds of politics, love and war no less. The book also includes a beautifully illustrated Manga graphic novel - by the author’s own hand - which presents an exquisite collection of dishes from the degustation combining modern Japanese food, subculture and art. Intrigued? This book is unique and spectacularly expressive snapshot of a culinary expert whose star continues to be on the rise.

L

ifestyle journalist Veerle Helsen went “out-of-office” for six months, bought an old camper and traveled by herself along the Spanish and Portuguese coastline. Ever true to her motto “surf, see, sleep & eat”, she combines three of her passions in this book: surfing, traveling and discovering hidden gems. She searched and found camper spots so quiet she could stay there for days without seeing another soul; secret beaches that aren’t indicated on the map where one can sit back and watch the waves. Veerle Helsen dismisses the classic tourist image of Spain and Portugal and writes about a completely different world: untouched, fierce and free, with little beach bars serving fish caught earlier that day, and roads wrapping themselves around cliffs and dunes, sheltered by pine trees and maintaining the view of sandcastles on the beach. While she drove, her drone was beside her on the passenger seat and her surfboard was on the roof.

our men took the stage for the very first time. Their first gig was in a basement below a record shop, but at the peak of their success, they played to over 50 000. Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, John Bonham and Robert Plant were all experienced and respected musicians in their own right. When they formed a band, they transformed the way we listen to rock. But it wasn’t just their music that would shake the world. Their performances left millions with the memories of a lifetime. In partnership with ACC Editions, Iconic Images has created a book that celebrates the live performances that defined a generation. Photographers, including the world-famous Terry O’Neill, Baron Wolman and Michael Brennan have opened up their archives to present Led Zeppelin: Live. With more than 200 million records sold worldwide, including eight consecutive number one albums in the UK alone, Led Zeppelin were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and received a Grammy for Lifetime Achievement in 2005. Rolling Stone magazine named Led Zeppelin one of the greatest acts of all time. The three surviving members are recipients of Kennedy Center Honors, and some of the most well known faces in the history of modern music. ACC DISTRIBUTION SPRING 2018

H

e was a young man with a distinctive voice. He had a throat that knew its way around whisky and cigarettes. And could write poetry and prose that rivalled any poet. When Tom Waits took to the recording studio to sing his lyrics and play his songs, a new icon in American music was born. Few artists match their image with what they create. But to listen to Tom Waits, especially in his ground-breaking debut Closing Time, the images that were presented to the press and used on the album cover would do just that. The photos matched the artist. Ed Caraeff, a noted photographer who also captured Jimi Hendrix on stage at Monterey, was enlisted by the record label to work with this new artist in 1972 for publicity shots as well as the cover image for his debut. Caraeff would work with Waits and produce a series of iconic images - many never published before. In Tom Waits, all of Ed Caraeff’s images are reproduced, along with notes and commentary from Caraeff and an introduction by Barney Hoskyns. Hoskyns is a celebrated journalist, music critic and the editorial director of Rock’s Backpages. ACC DISTRIBUTION SPRING 2018

Eye of the Flâneur

William Albert Allard

F

or 31 years William Albert Allard has returned again and again to the City of Light in the true spirit of the flâneur, to wander the streets aimlessly, yet ever alert to moments he might capture in his camera. With superb colour perception, this masterful portraitist and long-time contributor to National Geographic magazine has returned from his strolls with images ranging from fashion models backstage, to a beautiful young café patron lost in thought, to bikini clad sunbathers in a grassy park in the Marais or lying on the sand of man-made beaches along the Seine. As does a flâneur, Allard has often walked about Paris in pursuit of nothing specific but everything in general. He is known for his meticulous framing of the moment, all the many pieces of a visual puzzle falling gracefully into place. Allard claims he misses far more than he gets, but those he does capture are truly memorable pictures one can cherish, from a city that never stops offering more. ACC DISTRIBUTION SPRING 2018

From festivals such as Woodstock and Altamont, musicians including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead and moments including the Human Be-In and Death of Hippie marches, Wolman was on the visual front lines of an important period in the history of American society. “At that moment it all came together for me as a photographer.

I was invited to witness what was happening, ‘going down,’ culturally and socially, and I was taking photos along the way... who would have guessed that fully five decades down the line, we would be here still talking about what an incredible time it was.”

Edited by Diego Sileo rida Kahlo, a truly extraordinary woman who captured the public’s imagination with her iconic look, troubled life and exotic air, is first and foremost a great painter. This exhibition and accompanying catalogue aim to free her work from the haze of myth and the frustrating limits of private life in order to grant her the position she deserves within the history of art. Oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, letters and photographs explore the complex historical and cultural context of Kahlo’s work, examining its explicit realism as well as its disturbing ambiguity, its dramatic content as well as its irony, and not least, the exuberant sensuality of her still lifes. Organized by theme in several large chapters, the catalogue analyses the art of

Frida Kahlo, revealing its uncompromising political nature, audacious use of the body, macabre, violent aesthetic, and symbolic and symbiotic interaction with the natural environment of Mexico in the early 1900s. The catalogue represents the most up-to-date text available on the work of one of the most celebrated and beloved artists of all time.

America’s Cool Modernism O’Keefe to Hopper

Katherine Bourgignon, with essays by Leo Mazow and Lauren Kroiz

A

s some American artists began to eliminate people and remove extraneous details from their compositions, they often employed neat, orderly brushwork or closeup, unemotional photography. Artists as diverse as Patrick Henry Bruce, John Covert, Georgia O’Keeffe, Paul Strand and Arthur Dove navigated European and American avant-garde circles, picking and choosing new ideas and methods. Inspiration ranged from cubism and machine parts to new technologies, and they found ways to bring order to the modern world through extreme simplification. For them, abstraction involved absence and presence - the evacuation of human beings but also the desire to depict something that would not otherwise be visible or to render visible unseen natural processes like the passage ACC DISTRIBUTION SPRING 2018

his award-winning contemporary art book is made completely from the perspective and language of bugs, from the front page to the final chapter, with no human writing and text, only the “writing” of bugs. Inspired by the marks left behind by a cicada walking across his sketchbook, contemporary artist Zhu Yingchun placed boards and “ink ponds” of dark-colored vegetable juices in his garden for the bugs to crawl through. The resulting marks, were thousands of twisted characters, each with a charm of its own - the language of the bugs.

he buildings erected in the Deccan region of India belonged to a number of pre-Mughal kingdoms that reigned in the Deccan from the middle of the 14th century onwards. Many are still standing - yet outside this region of peninsular India, they remain largely unknown. While it is impossible to encompass the full breadth of the subject in a single volume, this book aims to embrace the visual diversity of the Deccan without sacrificing the rigor of academic study. Structures of historical or architectural significance are placed in their context, as the authors discuss building typologies, civic facilities and ornamental techniques, from plaster and carved stone to glazed tiles and mural painting. A chapter is dedicated to each principal Deccan site, interweaving the rise and fall of these cities with a pictorial journey through their ruins, and each building is accompanied by an overhead plan view.

Emil Milan: Midcentury Master Craig Edelbrock with Norm Sartorius, Phil Jurus, Barry Gordon. Foreword by Albert LeCoff

rtist Emil Milan (American, 1922-1985) was a major contributor to the studio craft movement in the 1950s and ‘60s. He was an innovator in woodworking tools and techniques, and a pioneer in using power tools to boost production. After training to be a sculptor at the Art Students League of New York, he developed and produced a distinctive line of “functional sculpture” wooden bowls, trays, and serving ware - that captured the essence of Midcentury Modern Design. He stood with now legendary artists and designers like Wharton Esherick, Sam Maloof, Wendell Castle, Charles Eames, George Nakashima, and Bob Stocksdale in the most important exhibitions of fine craft in America. His wares were tailored for and sold in high-end retailers such as Hammacher Schlemmer, Saks Fifth Avenue and the original Pottery Barn store in Manhattan. After fading into obscurity following his death, this book will rekindle awareness. Through this work the author wanted to merge two art forms that fascinate her: the art of flower design and the art of the tattoo. Inked & Blossom is a synthesis of divergent worlds, wherein both arts are allowed to complement and nourish each other, rather than being placed in opposition. For this unique project, Sarah Willemart Bauer has enlisted the support of internationally renowned tattoo models and make-up artists, making this book a must-have for flower enthusiasts, tattoo addicts, and those who are both!

Author Lynn Holstein is in search of a national identity in the artisanry of the still young country - and she finds it in the unifying pursuit for innovation. Forty artists, including Jews, Muslims and Christians, tell their stories and show in five different trades how emancipation can be promoted through creativity. Working with one’s hands stands unfailingly at the center of this reflection. From the hybrid of cultural and religious backgrounds emerges a unique compilation that brings together the fields of metalwork and jewelry, ceramics, textiles, paper and wood. This compilation portrays a sensitive and inspiring portrait of Israel and its inhabitants. This book accompanies an exhibition at The Open Museum, Tefen (IL), in January 2018.

ewelry is more than an arrangement of precious stones - it is a story. This is the principle on which Vincent Meylan has written his latest book. Now, with unparallelled access to the Bulgari archives, Meylan guides us on an intimate journey through the lives of the clients who have given this pre-eminent Mediterranean jeweler their patronage. Their client roster reflects their prestige. Nobility and celebrity intermingle; the Countess di Frasso shopped at Bulgari with her Hollywood superstar-beau, Gary Cooper, as did the Infanta Beatriz of Spain and Princess Maria José of Belgium, while Richard Burton wooed Elizabeth Taylor with glittering Bulgari jewels. But these jewels tell tales of many genres, not just romance: from exiled Iranian Shahs to Count Cini of Monselice, held for ransom by the SS and released in exchange for Bulgari jewels. Each story is retold with Vincent Meylan’s characteristic verve, embellished with original pictures from the archives. Chapters are dedicated to wealthy customers, and also to the stones themselves, tracing the evolution of this iconic Roman company through history, and the development of their jewelry from mine, to workshop, to model.

fascinating insight into the stimulating universe of Belgium’s cult fashion designer duo A.F.Vandevorst. A universe of fetishes, fur, leather, sensual folds and tight straitjackets... That is what Belgian fashion designers A.F.Vandevorst stand for. This publication celebrates their twentieth anniversary. An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx met in 1987, on their first day of school at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Ten years later, they set up their company Blixa and presented their first collection as A.F.Vandevorst in Paris. They have collaborated with such people as the flamboyant and world-famous hat designer Stephen Jones and have grown to become one of Belgium’s most edgy cult designers, closely connected to the Antwerp Six (Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, Walter Van Beirendonck ). With fashion shows and flagship stores in Paris, New York and London, they are much respected internationally and hugely admired in Japan. A.F.Vandevorst’s aesthetics are the result of their strong love for the visual arts, music and literature and of their great interest in cultural archetypes. This book focuses on their diverse inspirations, including Joseph

Beuys, the military and the medical scene, and is a collaboration with artists to whom An and Filip feel strongly connected. Among them is Blixa Bargeld (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds/Einstürzende Neubauten), who was the source of their first company’s name and has been a big inspiration ever since. Following an intuitive order, this book gives an intimate, very exciting and stimulating insight into the fascinating world of A.F.Vandevorst.

The book excels in its detailed descriptions, which accompany the sumptuous array of images. This publication is the result of 35 years of research - traveling, studying, and talking to many people across the entire subcontinent of India, as well as having had unprecedented access to goldsmiths and enamellers; being shown techniques known only to one family, which have been transferred from generation to generation; and being granted access to beautiful and never before seen Royal collections.

Street Jewellery Styles and Styling Tips Liza Urla

D

id you know that jewelry predates clothes? The oldest known piece is a set of 100, 000-year-old beads, made from Nassarius shells. Liza Urla advises us not to look at the eyes when meeting a new person, but instead to look at their jewelry. She describes it as the ultimate means of self-expression, essential to our identification as humans. “Jewellery is our armour,” she says, “and precious stones our amulets”. In this book, she journeys from continent to continent, chronicling the pieces that capture her imagination and her heart. Although many of the pictures are from the street, defining the wearer’s style on the day they were taken, Urla has been lucky enough to access people’s personal jewelry boxes. As she says, the best pieces are always in private collections. Urla’s favorite finds are presented alongside her own jewelry styling, in collaboration with various designers from the jungles of Brazil, the beaches of Mexico, or the streets of London, NYC, Paris or Moscow.

H

ouse design in Britain and Ireland is guided by climate, landscape and local resources just as much as the centuries-old traditions that have influenced architectural shape and form. Today’s best-known and emerging architects interpret their briefs with imaginative flair: they are transforming houses for the next generation of families by blending their renewed vigor for a local aesthetic with new materials and trends. Shown in stunning, full-color photographic detail are hundreds of pages of new and renovated houses, cottages and even converted barns nestled in misty rural valleys, including new and retrofitted modern inner-city terraces and townhouses that make the best use of available space. Houses are selected for levels of comfort, use of materials, and dramatic expression of traditional and contemporary architecture, as well as houses that capitalize on longer and warmer summers imposed by changing weather patterns in this corner of the globe. British + Irish Modern reveals a rich array of works that showcase how architecture in Britain and Ireland today has much to teach the world about creative, high-caliber design, innovative application of materials, and cautious but clever reliance on resources.

iribati is an island nation in the vast blue of the Pacific Ocean. Composed of thirty-two atolls and three groups of islands, Kiribati lies halfway between Hawaii and Australia. The largest and best-known of the many coral islands is Kiritimati, where James Cook landed on December 24, 1777, which is why he called it ‘Christmas Island’. In recent years the island world of Kiribati has achieved fame for the wrong reason: climate scientists have calculated that many of these atolls and the outer zones ACC DISTRIBUTION SPRING 2018

of the coral islands will sink into the ocean when sea levels rise as expected. When Alice Piciocchi and Andrea Angeli heard this, their desire to visit grew. Yet, instead of meeting desperate inhabitants sitting on their packed suitcases, they found people who had no intention of leaving. This book is a special kind of travel journal and a masterpiece of bibliophilism. The authors have succeeded in bringing us closer to the everyday culture and ideas of Kiribati’s people, testifying to their deep connection to the ocean and the universe itself.

HERITAGE & HISTORY

Buckingham Palace

Queen Victoria’s time it has been the official London residence for the ruling monarch and it houses a superb collection of works of art, part of the Royal Collection, but this is no rarefied museum. The headquarters of the British monarchy, Buckingham Palace is that rare thing - a working palace. Its state rooms form a magnificent setting for the official and ceremonial duties carried out by Her Majesty The Queen as Head of State of the United Kingdom and Head of the Commonwealth. This souvenir guide takes you inside the Palace and highlights the multiple roles Buckingham Palace plays - as a symbol, a royal residence, a working palace and an exceptional art collection - while offering a glimpse into one of the most famous buildings in the world.
