The Origins of the World Invention of Nature at The time of Darwin Laura Bossi The 19th century saw an unprecedented development of the natural sciences. Darwinian theory questions the origins of man, his place in Nature, his links with animals and his own animality in a world now understood as an ecosystem. This upheaval in the sciences, as well as the public debates throughout the century, deeply influenced the artists of the time. The Musée d’Orsay and the Musée des BeauxArts de Montréal are devoting an exhibition to the intersection of science and the arts for the first time, in partnership with the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, which will retrace the themes of this questioning and will confront the main milestones of scientific discoveries with their parallel in the art. Accompanies an exhibition at Musée d’Orsay in Paris: 9 November 2020 - 14 February 2021. The exhibition has been organized with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Canada, which will take place from 16 March - 27 June 2021.

At the crossroads of science and art, this catalog compares the main milestones of scientific discoveries with their parallels in the collective imagination.

Bruce Springsteen Live! Janet Macoska Five decades of blue-jeans, down-to-earth rock ‘n’ roll. Five decades of poetic, authentic performances, political commentary, global tours and even a Broadway show. Bruce Springsteen hasn’t just left an impact on the surface of modern music, he helped shape its foundations. From the early beginnings in 1974 to the seminal Born in the USA – one of the best-selling albums of all time – to the 2016 River Tour, the highest grossing tour of the year, Springsteen has a truly timeless appeal, captured here by lauded rock photographer, Janet Macoska. Macoska charts Springsteen through the ages. Through her lens we witness his enduring energy on the stage, from 1974 to 2016. Here is Springsteen at his finest: a down-to-earth superstar, whose powerful performances stand the test of time. “Bruce would rip his heart out and give it to his audience. He put everything into his performance. He was all over the stage, and the whole rest of the band was in lockstep, complementing that energy. It was going out to the audience in bundles. We were sending it back, too, and that’s really electric. That energy, those visuals? Photographers love that. It’s perfect to have something like that to photograph.” - Janet Macoska

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in glorious black and white and color photos, including iconic, rare, unseen and contact sheets.

Michael Caine Photographed by Terry O’Neill James Clarke “I had to be an actor,” Michael Caine once said. “[…] And of course, you have to remember with me, the alternative was a factory.” A working-class actor who broke through to stardom, Caine’s screentime involves standout performances across multiple genres. To this day, he is synonymous with a certain kind of urbane cool. No camera has captured this quality over the decades better than that of his collaborator and long-time friend, Terry O’Neill. Michael Caine: Photographed by Terry O’Neill offers an immersive visual journey through Michael Caine’s career, immortalizing Caine’s charm both in and out of character. Caine occupies a landmark position in cinema and O’Neill was there from the early days of his stellar career. From the comedy of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels to the European drama of Seven Times A Woman; from the miasma of The Magus to the British cult classic Get Carter, this book combines black and white and color images and includes never-beforeseen contact sheets. Featuring the following films: Mona Lisa, Midnight in Saint Petersburg/Bullet to Beijing, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Blue Ice, Without a Clue, Get Carter, Deadfall, Magus, Woman Times Seven, Funeral in Berlin.

Sukita Eternity Sukita “It’s very hard for me to accept that Sukita-san has been snapping away at me since 1972, but that really is the case. I suspect that it’s because whenever he’s asked me to do a session, I conjure up in my mind’s eye the sweet, creative and big-hearted man who has always made these potentially tedious affairs so relaxed and painless. May he click into eternity.” - David Bowie For Sukita, the creative mastermind behind David Bowie’s cover for Heroes, photography is an expression of a ‘fundamental secret’ shared between artists: a spiritual communication that transcends the minutiae of language. Born and raised in Kyushu, Japan, Sukita’s reverence of American counter-culture lured him to New York and London. He immersed himself in the western music scene which he loved, while his relaxed sessions endeared him to many celebrity figures, including David Bowie (with whom he enjoyed a 40-year professional relationship), Iggy Pop, Marc Bolan, and Japanese musician Hotei, best known for his work on the Kill Bill soundtrack. This is the first time the photographer has collaborated on a major retrospective of his career. It introduces the artist through a series of biographical essays that explore his place within the wider context of both Western and Japanese photography, presented alongside the iconic shots that earned him his eternal reputation.

A homage to Sukita: a legend in the world of music, film and celebrity photography – and the cult photographer of David Bowie’s Heroes, of Jim Jarmusch’s Mystery Train, and of iconic musicians Iggy Pop and Marc Bolan.

Lace Looking Through Flemish Lace Kaat Debo, Frieda Sorber, Tessy Schoenholzer, Ina van den Berghe Lace has been a luxury item, sought after by royalty and the aristocracy, since the early 1600s. Fashion has traditionally driven lace production, and in the 17th and 18th centuries the lace trade was a significant contributor to the economies of many European countries. This exhibition catalog for a show at MoMu, the Antwerp fashion museum, focuses on the venerable tradition of lace-making in Flanders, but places it within the larger context of the history of lace from the 16th century to the present. Historic pieces from international museums, including the Met (New York), the V&A (London) and the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam) are complemented by contemporary fashion (Van Herpen, Dior, Alaia, Prada, Loewe, Givenchy). These pieces, and their cutting-edge production techniques, bring the history of Flemish-made lace up to the 21st century.

New York A Photographic Journey Jacqueline Goossens, Tom Ronse It is often said that you can’t take the same walk twice in New York. Its history may be short compared to that of European cities, but it is also a history marked by lightning-fast change. This pictorial journey into the history of New York City starts from the small town that began as New Amsterdam in the 17th century, tracing the unbridled expansion of the 18th century and waves of mass immigration of the 19th and 20th centuries. The authors, both experienced NYC tour guides, explore iconic districts like Times Square, Harlem, Wall Street, Central Park, Ellis Island and the Bronx, bringing the past and people to life through engaging stories and images. An inspired selection of archival photos, prints, vintage maps, stereographs, and ephemera make this publication, with its elegant, giltedged finish, a fascinating visual homage to the vibrant city that is New York today.

Venezia An evocative and atmospheric photo book, brimming with antiquarian treasures Serge Simonart This love letter in photographs to the unique beauty and mystery of Venice is an evocative compilation of vintage photographs, prints, and ephemera. It is a tactile ode to the sensuality of the city, filled to the brim with all manner of Venetian memorabilia: 19th-century photographs, engravings, hand-colored magic lantern slides, vintage postcards, old luggage labels, keys from long-lost luxury hotels, golden ducats from the 18th century, Carnival ball invitations. With gilt-edged pages and antique Venetian lettering, it is not a travel or walking guide, but an atmospheric pilgrimage that pays homage to this ever-fascinating city. Serge Simonart’s engaging commentary on Venetian history and culture introduces each subject with affection and insight. “Every day, a nervous traveller visiting the City of Doges for the first time asks the best way to get to their hotel. ‘The shortest or the most beautiful?’, I once heard the concierge at Hotel Des Bains ask. The tourist who opted for the most beautiful route is still wandering around the city. This is a unique photobook in which to wander and lose oneself.” - Serge Simonart

A photobook brim-full of antique memorabilia, vintage photographs, prints, and ephemera that pays homage to the melancholy beauty and mystery of Venice, with essays by Serge Simonart.

Book Marks: An Artist’s Card Catalog Notes from the Library of My Mind Barbara Page Book Marks is a literary journey through artist Barbara Page’s imagination and memory. In 2008, Page began creating artworks on obsolete, three-byfive-inch library checkout cards.These richly illustrated “book marks” started out as a colorful system for remembering titles and ultimately became an ongoing art project that forms the heart of this book. Page began by making cards for books she was currently reading, and soon decided to retrace her reading history back to the very beginning. Represented here are over 430 of the cards housed in an antique two-drawer library case, symbolizing the books the artist has read and loved over seven decades. Interwoven with personal accounts of the different stages of her life – as a child, young housewife, pilot, artist, widow, and traveler – the artworks illuminate how our memories of books are anchored not only to the story itself, but also to events and images beyond the book’s cover. Book Marks is a captivating fusion of autobiography and art book that reminds us of how significant books can leave indelible impressions on our lives.

Over 430 richly illustrated artworks interpret a lifetime of reading and illuminate how books inform and are informed by events in our lives.

Old Homes, New Life The Resurgence of the British Country House Clive Aslet, Photographs by Dylan Thomas What it is like to live in a country house today? What role do they play in the 21st century? For many years after the Second World War, the country house was struggling. Now a new generation of young owners, often with children, has taken over. They’re finding innovative ways to live in these ancient, fragile and poetic places. While they treasure the history and beauty of the houses, they’re also adapting and enhancing them for a modern era. Old Homes, New Life is a behind-the-scenes account of today’s aristocracy, as they reinvent the country house way of life. Each family recreates the country house with their own point of view, maintaining the tradition of individualism, even eccentricity, which is so much associated with country houses. Dylan Thomas’s superb yet intimate photographs capture both the inhabitants of these houses and the spaces they occupy - from State dining to family kitchen, walled garden to attic. This feast for the eyes is accompanied by an equally mouthwatering text by Clive Aslet, based on interviews with family members and his long experience of the subject through his years as editor of Country Life.

Art of Botanical Illustration Wilfrid Blunt, William T Stearn This major work, first published in 1950, is still considered the classic book on the subject. It provides a comprehensive, critical and well-illustrated survey of the portrayal of plants across over three thousand years, at a more compact size.

It is essential for the specialist, certainly, but it is also for all the flower-lovers and all those who enjoy the by-ways of biography and the added attraction of good writing”. This edition contains 126 color plates (more than twice as many as the first edition), alongside 140 black-and-white illustrations.

A Sameness Between Us The Friendship of Charmion von Wiegand and Piet Mondrian in Letters and Memoirs Martin Brauen In April 1941 Charmion von Wiegand (1896-1983), an American journalist and artist, met Piet Mondrian for an interview. From this very first meeting, a deep friendship and working relationship developed; she translated Mondrian’s texts into English and edited them, discussed art and philosophy with him, and played a part in the evolution of many of the works he created up to his death in 1944. The artist’s memoirs of their encounters and their comprehensive correspondence have now been published in full for the very first time. The texts portray a relationship fluctuating between burning affection and distant friendship, tenderness and harsh rejection, openness and reticence. A relationship that has left behind clear traces in Charmion von Wiegand’s life and works - far beyond Mondrian’s death. Nothing is the same as it once was!

Pre-Raphaelite Drawings and Watercolours Christiana Payne

The Works of Samuel Palmer Colin Harrison

An Instinct to Draw John Ruskin’s Drawings in the Ashmolean Museum Stephen Wildman

The Ashmolean’s collection of PreRaphaelite watercolors and drawings includes a wide variety of appealing works. It is especially rich in portraits, which throw an intimate light on the friendships and love affairs of the artists, and in landscapes which reflect Ruskin’s advice to ‘go to nature’.

The art of Samuel Palmer (1805-1881) is essentially a discovery of the 20th century. Although he exhibited widely during his lifetime, and found buyers for some of his watercolours and etchings, it was not until the retrospective exhibition held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1926 that the general public were able to enter the uniquely personal world of Palmer’s early years at Shoreham.

More than just an exhibition catalog, this book is a showcase of the Ashmolean’s incredible collection, and demonstrates the enormous range of Pre-Raphaelite drawing techniques and media, including pencil, pen and ink, chalk, watercolor, bodycolor and metallic paints. It will include designs for stained glass and furniture, as well as preparatory drawings for some of the well-known paintings in the collection.

The collection of paintings, drawings, watercolours, and etchings by Samuel Palmer in the Ashmolean Museum is the most important in the world. It is especially rich in the early works of the Shoreham period, from c. 1824 to 1835, notably the haunting self-portrait and the unique group of six sepia drawings of 1825, which represent the ‘visionary landscape’ at its most intense.

Ruskin’s life is one of the best documented of any in the 19th century, through letters, diaries and the many autobiographical revelations in his published writings: this allows the opportunity to give almost any drawing a level of context impossible for any other artist. When there is so much background information, a single drawing reveals much about its creator, and becomes a window into the great sprawling edifice of his life and work.

Thorvald Hellesen 1888-1937 Dag Blakkisrud, Matthew Drutt, Hilde Mørch Thorvald Hellesen (1888-1937) was a Norwegian avant-garde artist who lived and worked in Paris in the 1910s and ’20s. He and his wife, the French artist Hélène Perdriat, were part of a circle of artists that included Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Constantin Brâncusi, Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, and many others. In his short life, Thorvald Hellesen created an impressive oeuvre, oriented on Modernism, consisting of oil paintings, watercolors, gouaches, drawings, design projects, and textiles. With this publication the authors Dag Blakkisrud, Matthew Drutt, and Hilde Mørch have created a written portrait of Hellesen. In addition to classifying him within the history of art, they try to find explanations as to why his artistic practice is only now being considered important and interesting for Norwegian and international art history.

With the help of the faithful gardener Gilbert Carty, amidst canals, bridges, paths made of railway ties, and many trees and flowers, they installed about 50 works, some of them monumental, by artists such as Rodin, Maillol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Zao Wou-Ki, Françoise Lacampagne, Cárdenas, Mark Di Suvero, Léger, Matta, Zigor… Paul positioned the sculptures, and to help them vanish into the natural environment Jeannette would plant a shrub, a rosebush, dahlias, an oak, a maple, a gingko, a Caucasian walnut… “I don’t want this garden to become ridiculous!” she said.

Washi Transformed New Expressions in Japanese Paper Meher McArthur, Hollis Goodall, Edited by Zxachary Marschall Historically, washi paper has been used as a base for Japanese calligraphy, painting, and printmaking as well as a material in architecture, religious ritual and clothing. In recent years, contemporary Japanese artists have turned this supple yet sturdy paper into a medium for expressing their artistic vision – layering, weaving, dyeing, shredding, folding, or cutting the paper to form abstract sculptures, lyrical folding screens, highly textured wall pieces, and dramatic installations. This elegantly designed volume examines the extraordinary creations of these diverse contemporary artists from Japan, France, and the United States. The publication also demonstrates the resilience, versatility, and unique stature of this ancient artistic medium in the realm of international contemporary art. Published to accompany a traveling exhibition: Allentown Art Museum, Allentown, PA October 10, 2021 – January 2, 2022; Longmont Museum, Longmont, CO January 28, 2022 – May 15, 2022; D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield Museums, Springfield, MA June 11, 2022 – September 4, 2022; Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, Delray Beach, FL November 3, 2022 – April 2, 2023.

This exquisite new publication celebrates how Japanese contemporary artists push traditional washi paper beyond its historic uses to create innovative, highly textured two-dimensional works, expressive sculptures, and dramatic installations.

The Art of Thai Comics A Century of Strips and Stripes Nicolas Verstappen After the first Thai comic strip was published in 1907, comics flourished in Siam and developed in uniquely Thai ways. Gory horror tales, anti-communist propaganda and socially-engaged graphic novels bear witness to the country’s darker years. From 1990, Thai comics struggled to compete with the sudden influx of unlicensed Japanese manga and went through a hiatus, making a comeback in the late ’90s with a new and alternative scene that deserves wider recognition. Each page of The Art of Thai Comics opens a unique window onto Thai society – a distilled vision of its hopes, fears, delights and horrors. Thai comics past and present offer an entertaining and enlightening viewpoint onto the country’s history, culture and enduring creativity.

The Age of Combustion Stephen Bayley The automobile is the ultimate analog machine and mankind’s most ingenious, seductive and damaging invention. For over a century, cars have provided reference points for our notions of style, status and desire. In design terms, the Age of Combustion was as rich and varied as architecture’s Baroque – and far more popular. And now it is coming to an end, as the internal-combustion engine is superseded by the battery and cars become wheeled computers, running on AI not oil. Together with a wide-ranging introduction, this book reproduces 60 of Stephen Bayley’s popular monthly columns between 20102020 for Octane, the outstanding classic car magazine where, for more than 10 years, he has provided the most consistent and insightful commentary on car culture, often based on privileged access to industry insiders.

In Flux American Jewelry and the Counterculture Susan Cummins, Damian Skinner, Cindi Strauss In the 1960s and 1970s, a generation of young Americans rejected the promise of prosperity and the suburban dream embraced by their parents. Furious about the war in Vietnam, fighting for civil rights at home, and eagerly exploring the effects of psychedelic drugs, the delights of free love, and the mystical teachings of eastern religions, thousands followed the advice to “turn on, tune in, drop out,” bringing about a counterculture in the process. Jewelers, like other studio craftspeople, rode the wave of popularity for the hand-made and authentic that was at the heart of the counterculture. In Flux is the story of how their jewelry contributed to the raucous, contradictory, and enthusiastic clamor for a new kind of society that made the 1960s and 1970s so extraordinary.

The story of American counterculture from the perspective of jewelry-making, presenting the zeitgeist of the1960s and 1970s in the USA.

Modern British Jewellery Designers A Collector’s Guide Mary Ann Wingfield, Foreword by Lord Snowdon In the 1960s, British jewelry underwent a revolution. Natural, uncut stones exploded into vogue and a 1961 exhibition at the Goldsmith’s Hall kickstarted the nation’s new obsession with gold. The women who shopped at Quant’s Bazaar and Hulaniki’s Biba no longer just received jewelry as gifts. They placed their own orders, exploring Grima’s drizzled gold and Flöckinger’s fused metallic experimentations. This was an era of innovation – captured here through insights into the work of 25 major jewelers and sumptuous pictures of their work. This book introduces the most influential British designers, jewelers, goldsmiths and silversmiths of 1960-1980. Accompanied by new photography showing each designer’s creations, this is the perfect introduction for anyone with an interest in collecting, or learning more about this transformative period in British jewelry design.

Jewelry Stories Highlights from the Collection 1947-2019 Edited by Barbara Paris Gifford, and the Museum of Arts and Design, New York Jewelry Stories highlights the Museum of Arts and Design’s unique, worldclass collection of studio and contemporary art jewelry from the US, Europe, Australia, and Asia, a medium that comprises one-third of its permanent collection. Artists working in this field create jewelry rooted in sculptural experimentation and the concept of art as a wearable medium. The pieces featured represent the history of art jewelry as told from a largely US perspective. Jewelry artists are inspired by such subjects as found objects and materials, as well as by politics and pressing social issues, allowing for the development of unique, personal narratives in each piece. Each of the jewelry stories is written by an expert on the artist or subject, thus the book also celebrates the contributions they have made to the field.

Quiet Elegance The Jewelry of Eleanor Moty Helen W. Drutt English, Matthew Drutt, Bruce Pepich Eleanor Moty (American, b. 1945) is a seminal figure in the field of contemporary international studio jewelry. In a career that has spanned more than 50 years, she has been both a dedicated practitioner and a devoted teacher who has inspired succeeding generations of artists, collectors, and fellow professionals. She began to attract national attention in the late 1960s and early 1970s for her experiments with photoetching and electroforming metal. Later, mid-career, Moty made what seems like an abrupt shift in style and focus, with more abstract works whose designs were inspired by the natural inclusions within the non-precious gems used in their fabrication. This monograph is the first comprehensive in-depth examination of her career from its inception in 1967 through the present day.

Toxic Garden AN+, Edited by Stella Fitzgerald Foreword by Piet Oudolf, designer of the New York highline Published at a crucial time in which we are being forced to reconsider our relationship with the planet, this book explores the irony of toxic plants. Through exposing the fragile beauty of dried specimens in photographs, the reader learns of their physical potency in their potential to cause detrimental harm. Part I is an index of toxic plants and has an accompanying text to describe the adverse effects of their toxins on living beings. Part II is a reflective, philosophical meditation, which considers the different facets of reality, providing the reader with an opportunity to encounter the speculative aspects of architecture through plantscapes. Toxic Garden is a beautiful, philosophical and scientific book which creates a space for readers to grasp the qualities of poisonous plants. It is a story of their delicacy, resilience and power – characteristics which must be retained as the plants’ fragility is under threat.

By exposing the paradox between plants’ beauty and toxic qualities, readers learn of their physical potency and potential to cause detrimental harm.

LandRush Ventures into Global Agriculture Frauke Huber, Uwe H. Martin Agriculture drives climate change, extinction, erosion and water depletion. It uses about 40 percent of all land on earth and more than 70 percent of all freshwater. Due to over-exploitation of the soil and climate change, desertification is one of the greatest threats to life on earth. The authors have been documenting the social and environmental consequences of global agriculture since 2007. The book is divided in three parts: White Gold (2007-2012) examines the social and ecological effects of global cotton production; LandRush (2011-ongoing) analyzes the impact of large-scale agro-investments on rural economies, the boom of renewable fuels, and the future of agriculture around the world; Dry West (2014-ongoing) documents the hydrological society and human-shaped landscapes of the American West.

Let’s Play House Inspirational Living with Kids Joni Vandewalle Whoever welcomes children says goodbye to a tidy and perfectly-styled house.

Creating children’s rooms for optimal use is a challenging job, but one that is immensely rewarding for the whole family.

Icons Portraits by Andy Gotts Andy Gotts Foreword by Stephen Fry “His forté is the absolutely direct black and white portrait, full-on, sometimes grainy and remorseless in the detailing of complexion, sometimes mischievously witty and unexpected, always completely unforgettable.” - Stephen Fry “Andy Gotts is a genius of his craft” - Tom Hanks In 1990 Andy Gotts, then a young photography student at Norfolk College of Arts and Technology, approached Stephen Fry at an event to ask him for a portrait. That brief meeting led to an even briefer photographic session (90 seconds), during which Andy realized he had discovered his photographic approach: “I cannot remember what I said to provoke the expressions and reactions I had in these 10 frames, but that was it... BOOM! ... my eureka moment. It was like a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders and I knew celebrity portraits were the way for me.” Some 30 years later, Andy’s unique portrait style – rapidly taken and often face-on – is admired for capturing the charisma of famed sitters such as Kylie Minogue, Meryl Streep, Harrison Ford and Kirk Douglas. Andy’s chatty, quick-fire approach led Paul Newman to nickname him ‘One Shot Gotts’. The photographs that Andy creates are naturalistic, eschewing the seductive technological traps of airbrushing and heavy styling. Andy Gotts was awarded an MBE in 2012 for his contribution to photography.

Venice in Silence Gaby Wagner When news of the coronavirus arrived, the lockdown came fast to Italy. The figures were scary and the disaster bigger every day. But it also became a rare opportunity to truly see and share this magical city that I love so much. I photographed its overwhelming beauty, reflected in the liquid mirror of the canals, the glorious vision of architectural perfection, the colors enhanced by the incredible sun and deep blue sky we had every day. It was the most incredible experience of my life and the images and feelings will stay with me forever, hoping sincerely you will have the impression you have been there with me. – Gaby Wagner

In Your Face Paul Trevor Photographer Paul Trevor has been documenting the East End of London for over 25 years. This new book of black-and-white close-ups, made spontaneously on the streets of east London, capture Britain’s perennial social divide. They contrast the people in the City – London’s money market – with those in the nearby street market of Brick Lane. Paul Trevor shot these images between 1977 and 1992 – but mostly in the ’80s, provoked by Thatcherism and a polarized debate on market forces vs community values. The imagery is as fresh and relevant today as it was then.

In Praise of Hands Woodcuts by Naoko Matsubara Poems by Penny Boxall Edited by Clare Pollard This creative collaboration between artist Naoko Matsubara and poet Penny Boxall celebrates in words and colors the beauty and variety of the human hand. The series of dynamic woodcuts at the heart of this book was initially inspired by the artist’s wonder at the busy hand movements of her baby son. The woodcuts convey a sense of joy and energy, whether exploring the symbolism of gestures, playing with form and color, or expressing a mood or emotion. Penny Boxall’s new poems were specially written to accompany the woodcuts. In their clarity and playfulness, their range of mood and their deceptive simplicity, they form a remarkable creative synergy with the art works.

Courtly Companions Pugs and Other Dogs in Porcelain and Faience Gun-Dagmar Helke, Hela Schandelmaier In the 18th century pugs found their way onto the laps of noblewomen and, with this, into the portraits of contemporary rulers. Small and forever panting, the pug could not be put to use as a watchdog or a herding dog, but it compensated for this with its charm. The dog ultimately found its way onto porcelain and faience. Johann Joachim Kändler, the most significant modeler of the Meissen porcelain manufactory, designed over 60 variants of the pug between 1740 and 1760 – standing, lying, scratching, and performing tricks. This southern German collection comprises over 150 ceramic pugs as well as other dogs.

Don Gummer Contributions by Peter Plagens and Linda Wolk-Simon Don Gummer’s career as a sculptor began in New York City in the late 1970s with his wall reliefs of painted wood, carefully layered geometric works exhibiting a strong architectural influence. Moving beyond wood to stone, bronze, stainless steel, aluminum, and glass as his primary materials, his artworks have evolved into subtly inventive, often monumental, freestanding sculptures that demonstrate his unfailing attention to craftsmanship and detail. The Artist Book Foundation is delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of Don Gummer, a new monograph on the artist and his highly acclaimed body of work.

Porsche Unseen Design Studies Stefan Bogner When car companies present studies and prototypes, they allow a glimpse behind the scenes, a vision of what may come in the future. Apart from what is shown during official events and at fairs, there is an overwhelming number of drafts and models that remain hidden from the public for various reasons. This book achieves the impossible: a look at Porsche cars the public never laid eyes on – Porsche Unseen. Stefan Bogner was exclusively allowed to take pictures in the Porsche Design sanctum. The Porsche DNA is recognizable in any of the models shown, but the design is so new and unexpected that it suggests the existence of a parallel universe. A 1-liter Porsche? A coupé-like four-seater with 911-looks? Single-seated roadsters with 1950’s flair? Stefan Bogner took photos of all of them – either as models or ready to drive. Jan Baedeker talked with Michael Mauer, Head of Design, and took down the enlightening background information. Join our extraordinary expedition of discovery through the world of Porsche Design!

When Elephants Come to Town A Visual Anthology James Attlee When Elephants Come to Town is a visual celebration of man’s timeless fascination with the world’s largest land animal through the medium of photography. The joy and excitement elephants arouse when they make an appearance in our lives is brought to life through a combination of iconic photographs by, amongst others, Garry Winogrand and unattributed, archival material. Rather than a series of contemporary nature photographs, the book is a collection of exceptional images from around the world of elephants in captivity, dating from Victorian times to the height of circus culture in the mid-20th century. In the essay that accompanies the photographs, acclaimed British author James Attlee describes the broader context of that relationship through the ages. Intensely nostalgic, often poignant and always fascinating, these images capture the complexity of one of the planet’s most enduring inter-species relationships.

A collection of exceptional images of elephants from around the world, taken in days gone by, often by anonymous photographers.

Remembering Elephants Margot Raggett and Wildlife Photographers United The vision for this book has always been simple. Ask the world’s best wildlife photographers to donate an image each and produce the most beautiful book on elephants ever made. Then use that picture book to raise awareness of and funds to fight the plight that elephants are facing. Remembering Elephants is that vision come true with a total of 65 photographers coming together for this unprecedented project and their stunning images collectively showing the life enjoyed by wild African elephants in the early part of the 21st century. And sadly also, what can happen at the hands of man.

Gesamtkunstwerke Architecture by Arne Jacobsen and Otto Weitling in Germany Edited by Hendrik Bohle and Jan Dimog The architecture by Arne Jacobsen and Otto Weitling is of outstanding importance for post-war modernism in Germany. The caliber of their projects, however, has been forgotten. Gesamtkunstkwerke closes this gap in the appreciation of their work with a comprehensive presentation of seven out of eight German projects by the Danish master architects. The publication also takes stock of how the legacy of late modernism is being handled. The journey through the architects’ locales leads us to the sea, to model towns and to the intricacies of modernism, prompting a debate in accordance with Otto Weitling: ‘Pros and cons would be a positive sign because a building that isn’t talked about is usually not worth talking about.’

Giuseppe Terragni His War, His End Valerio Paolo Mosco, Edited by Attilio Terragni Giuseppe Terragni, an influential proponent of modernism in Italian architecture and design in the 1920s and 1930s, translated the visual vocabulary of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe into what became known as the Rationalist School of Architecture. This monograph covers his later years (he died in 1943), with a focus on the war and his devastating experience as a soldier. It includes some notable projects from the 1930s like the Casa del Fascio in Como, and the designs for an unrealized final project for a cathedral that he did in the days before his death. The book is illustrated with historical photographs and includes letters Terragni wrote from the front.

From Granada to Berlin The Alhambra Cupola Anna McSweeney

Iron Bridge, England Hefte zur Baukunst Volume 2 Hermann Reemtsma Stiftung

This book is the story of an extraordinary survivor from the Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain: the Alhambra cupola, now in the Museum of Islamic Art in Berlin. The cupola, a ceiling crafted from carved and painted wood, was made to crown an exquisite mirador in one of the earliest palace buildings of the Alhambra. The book is the cupola’s biography from its medieval construction to its imminent redisplay in Berlin. It traces the long history of the Alhambra through the prism of the cupola, from the Muslim craftsmen who built it, to its adaptation by the Christian conquerors after the fall of Granada in 1492, to its creation as a heritage site.

The second volume in the Hefte zur Baukunst series is devoted to the Iron Bridge, which crosses the River Servern, in Shropshire, UK. Owing to its vast resources of iron ore and coal, the region is known as the birthplace of Great Britain’s Industrial Revolution. The bridge reputedly required a total of 385 tons of cast iron and more than 1,700 individual pieces. The Iron Bridge was opened to traffic in 1781, and, in 1986, the structure was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. An expert survey conducted in 2000 and in-depth research on materials, surfaces, and construction techniques resulted in a detailed conservation plan, which was successfully carried out in the following years.

It was designed in 1789 by the architect Carl Gotthard Langhans who also created the Brandenburg Gate. The building was conceived as the main structure of the new veterinary school. It ranks as the most important work of early classicism in Berlin and is an impressive testimony to the Enlightenment and the Prussian spirit of innovation.

Following his studies at the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio and various internships, Andreas Heierle founded his Atelier fĂźr Architektur in Lucerne in 2012. Since then, he has produced a number of architectural gems, including a small, elegant residential building with three courtyards in Romania and a school in the community of Crissier, Canton of Vaud, which is naturally integrated into the landscape.

The new agricultural school in Salez, in the St. Gallen Rhine valley region, has a slender, airy and light appearance. It is an extremely intelligently conceived low-tech construction made of timber. The design is by Andy Senn, who has led his architectural office in St. Gallen since 1998 and has produced an extraordinary, homogeneous oeuvre in the last 20 years.

The book documents the original 1951 building using historical plans and photographs, provides insight into the building-historical analysis before the renovation and uses plans and photo material to describe the strategy and measures by the architects in renovating the architecturally important historical building.

Lineage and Legacy A certain Modernism in Cadaqués Edited by Stephen Bates, Fernando Villavecchia

Durchdringung als Bedingung Edited by Hochschule Luzern – Technik & Architektur, Johannes Käferstein

This book investigates a particular kind of architecture that thrived in the 1950s in Cadaqués, a small Spanish fishing village on the Costa Brava. It explores a number of holiday houses built between the mid-1950s and 1960s by a group of architects who shared bonds of friendship and architectural affinities, as well as connections with the international Modern movement. Observations on the common threads that link eight case studies are enriched by a photographic essay by David Grandorge and by detailed architectural drawings on a number of significant projects of the time. An interview with the authors Stephen Bates (Sergison Bates architects, London) and Fernando Villavecchia (Liebman Villavecchia Arquitectos, Barcelona) provides a background to their shared fascination with Cadaqués.

This volume marks the conclusion of the many years of teaching and research by Dieter Geissbühler, investigating the significance of construction in architecture.

Staehelin Meyer Anthologie Edited by Heinz Wirz

The Zurich architects Annette Spillmann and Harald Echsle became renowned in 2006 with their container tower for the FREITAG bag and fashion label in Zurich. It represents ‘architecture without architects’ while also being a nonchalant solution for a common architectural program in the midst of an inhospitable residual zone. The 2013 ‘House of Switzerland’ in Sochi (Russia) is intelligently derived from the same approach.

Jonas Staehelin and Stephan Meyer are among a promising young generation of architects in Basel. Their conversions and housing have their own hallmark, an outstanding sense of exciting interior spaces and a high degree of precision in formulating details. Their designs are characterized by particular elegance and dignity.

Hans Gugelot - Die Architektur des Design Edited by HfG-Archiv / Museum Ulm

AFF – Berlin/Lausanne Edited by Heinz Wirz, contributions by Hartmut Frank

The Dutch architect Hans Gugelot came to the Ulm College of Design in 1954. With his product designs, he contributed significantly to the success of this legendary university. In 1956, together with Dieter Rams, he developed the ‘SK 4’ radio set for the Braun company, which became an icon of West German postwar design as the ‘Scheewittchensarg’ (Snow White coffin). Hans Gugelot designed numerous industrial goods for leading manufacturers: razors, furniture, sewing machines, slide projectors, trains for local transport. This book deals with individual focal points of Gugelot’s work and at the same time describes the attitude to life and the living conditions of the design avant-garde in the young Federal Republic of Germany.

Martin and Sven Fröhlich have passionately pursued the permanence and longevity of forms, images and narratives in architecture since 2000. The result is surprising, strong and memorable architecture that often appears close to conceptual and minimal art. De aedibus international is a series on contemporary, highly qualified European architects and architecture. An archive of carefully selected buildings and projects.

Leading historian of architectural theory, Professor Harry F. Mallgrave, writes an essay on the discourses that were particularly important and the architecture connected to them, while also taking into account aspects of the cultural and social background of that era. This entire issue is made up of relevant works of architecture and discourses laid out with reference to the three topics that Professor Mallgrave outlines in his essay. Finally, the editorial team added examples related to the topic of The Vernacular and the Language of Modernism. The result is a cross-section of the 1970s.

JA 117, Spring 2020 Kunio Maekawa Edited by The Japan Architect JA 117 features Kunio Maekawa (19051986). Kunio Maekawa’s work has established a Japanese architectural identity within the context of modernism. His work is therefore intricately intertwined with both modernism and Japaneseness. Based on this idea of the Belgian architect Hera Van Sande, who serves as guest editor, this issue approaches Kunio Maekawa’s work from the following four aspects. First, the influence of Le Corbusier’s thought on Maekawa within the realm of modernism. Second, Kunio Maekawa’s method for sublimating the unique spatial characteristics of Japanese traditional architecture into his own architecture. Third, his synthesizing stance that advocates the transcendence of modernism and localism. And finally, Maekawa’s liberated design approach which leads to natural and peaceful spaces.

Stories and Scenes Jin Yucheng Shanghai, second largest city in the world, is a hub of humanity. To Jin Yucheng, bestselling author of Blossoms, Shanghai is home.

Yucheng also delves into Shanghai’s history, paying particular attention to the 1960s-1990s. Later chapters focus on Chinese culture, the contrast between mega cities and remote villages, and Yucheng’s favorite animal – the horse.

Woven Tapestry Guidelines for Conservation Ksynia Marko

This volume is the eighth in this biennial series which presents the recent research into the conservation, structure, materials, history etc. of paintings by past and present staff and students (including early career interns) of the Hamilton Kerr Institute.

From the Middle Ages, tapestries with figurative or other ornament were used by royalty and aristocrats to furnish their palaces and houses. While often observed as two-dimensional art, they are three dimensional structures requiring specialist skill to maintain and conserve them. Since the vast majority of tapestries are on open display in historic interiors, they pose particular conservation and interpretation challenges.

Box of Delights Wood Engravings from the Ashmolean Collection Anne Desmet The Ashmolean Museum houses one of the most extensive collections of wood engravings in the world. The collection effectively began with the gift in 1964, by Arthur Mitchell, of over 3,000 prints, including a large group of wood engravings. During the 1980s and 1990s it expanded remarkably with acquisitions of large groups of prints, often as gifts from the artists. They included John Farleigh (1986), John Buckland Wright (1990), Clare Leighton (1992), Monica Poole (1993) and Anne Desmet (1998). A key point in this period of expansion was the acquisition of a comprehensive body of work by Gertrude Hermes and Blair Hughes-Stanton in 1995 from the artists’ family.

Die Sprache der Dinge Angewandte Kunst der Lotte ReimersStiftung im Museum Pfalzgalerie Kaiserslautern Marlene Jochem In addition to her life’s work in ceramic art, the artist, gallerist and collector Lotte Reimers (b. 1932) has compiled a fascinating collection of applied art from other disciplines. With 132 objects, Die Sprache der Dinge (The Language of Things) presents jewelry, metal and textile design, leather- and woodwork, paper art, and one-offs in glass. The collection, which has grown over decades, reflects Lotte Reimers’ own unique collecting style: aside from personal taste, quality in form and craftsmanship is an essential criterion for inclusion. The things themselves enter a polyphonic and exciting dialogue in their multiplicity and individuality.

Mexico and the Mexicans in the Kaluz Collection Alan Rojas Orzechowski, Ery Cámara Thiam

Presenting the art of David Czupryn and Jochen Mühlenbrink, this publication explores two contemporary approaches to painting. They subtly challenge our perception of the world and investigate reality. The paintings by both artists are designed to trick the eye. In the spirit of classical trompe-l’œil painting, Czupryn is a master of aesthetic deception who translates the pictorial language and techniques of past ages into the present and skilfully integrates numerous references to the history of art and religion, iconography and allegory, politics and society into his paintings.

This catalog accompanies the inaugural exhibition of the Kaluz Museum, Mexico and the Mexicans in the Kaluz Collection, as a faithful display of a collector’s passion for their cultural and artistic heritage. With a selection of more than 200 works that span a period of more than 250 years, mostly Mexican figurative painting, this catalog presents the work of painters who have been captivated by Mexico’s beauty, rarity and majesty. This pictorial exhibition talks about the country’s landscape, people, food, customs and traditions. Architecture

Dream Baby Dream Haus Mödrath Our childhood home is a place of imagination, safety, and playfulness, but sometimes also of trauma, violence, and fear. It determines who we are, shapes who we become, and influences what we repress. Many artists draw on early experiences in their works and subsequently renew, expand, or change our view of the world. The title ‘Dream Baby Dream’ evocatively reflects this approach by quoting the eponymous song by the influential electro duo Suicide. The American dream that is conjured up in the lyrics is transformed through the song’s gloomy sounds into both a nightmare and a trance-like ray of hope. This catalog is devoted to artists whose oeuvre has been fueled by this source of imagination.

Jochen Mühlenbrink Dr. Thomas A. Lange, Moritz Scheper, Gisela ElbrachtIglhaut

With the artist Jana Schröder, the Kopfermann-Fuhrmann Foundation is opening an exhibition series curated by Benjamin-Novalis Hofmann, which will feature presentations with women painters of the younger generation. The individual artistic positions are each based on an outstanding idea of abstract painting in the 21st century. With regard to her works, Schröder herself speaks of an “aesthetics of doodling”. Her works are characterized by lines that sometimes seem to dissolve, then again condense into tight and finely rhythmic webs. The catalog shows works from the past 10 years and includes an extensive interview with the artist.

Presenting the art of David Czupryn and Jochen Mühlenbrink, this publication explores two contemporary approaches to painting. They subtly challenge our perception of the world and investigate reality. The paintings by both artists are designed to trick the eye. In his own unique style, Jochen Mühlenbrink creates a semblance of reality by imitating various materials that deceive viewers with their realism. David Czupryn takes an opposite approach. In the spirit of classical trompel’œil painting, Czupryn is a master of aesthetic deception who translates the pictorial language and techniques of past ages into the present and skilfully integrates numerous references to the history of art and religion, iconography and allegory, politics and society into his paintings.

100 Masterpieces: Old Dutch and Flemish Art 1350-1750 Codart

Lars Reiffers Paintings Dr. Gabriele Hovestadt, Lars Reiffers

What are the 100 most important masterpieces from the Netherlands and Flanders created between 1400 and 1750? In this well illustrated book, over 100 curators from CODART, an international network for museum curators of Dutch and Flemish art, has compiled a canon of the best works from museums around the world. Each painting, drawing, sculpture or print on the list is profiled, with commentary by the curators. Included are works by Rubens, Rembrandt, Bruegel, Van Eyck, Hals, Memling, Vermeer, Metsu, de Hooch, Steen, and many more.

Lars Reiffers first studied painting in Aix-en-Provence, the birthplace of Paul CĂŠzanne, before continuing his studies at the Kunstakademie MĂźnster in 1999 in the class of Professor Kuhna and being appointed his master student in 2002. Inspired by his teacher, Reiffers developed his artistic signature at an early age, which is characterised by an exuberant visual abundance. The camera always replaces the sketch pad in the process of creating a picture, and Reiffers has collected a gigantic archive of motifs that are brought to new life in his studio. The photographic templates are projected onto the screen, but in the end they subtly deviate from reality. Color, form and space thus develop independently on the canvas.

Perino del Vaga for Michelangelo The Spalliera of the Last Judgment in the Spada Gallery Edited by Barbara Agosti, Silvia Ginzburg In 1542 pope Paul III commissioned to Perino del Vaga (1501-1547) a tapestry basement for Michelangelo’s Last Judgement in the Sistine Chapel. The Spalliera was never completed, but its model, painted on canvass, was later acquired and used as a frieze in cardinal Bernardino Spada’s roman palace. This book explores its significance in Perino’s artistic career, marked by an intense dialogue with Michelangelo’s art. The reception of the Spalliera by different artists is studied through a group of drawings deriving from it.

Peterhof State Museum Reserve Director’s Choice Elena Kalnitskaya

The A.G. Leventis Gallery Director’s Choice Loukia Hadjigavriel

The Lobkowicz Collections Music Series Beethoven Kathryn Libin

The Peterhof State Museum-Reserve is one of the most visited and attractive museums in Russia. Uniting today more than 30 expositions located on the territory of Peterhof, Alexandria, Strelna and Oranienbaum, the museum acquaints its guests with the great past of Russia. The planning structure of Peterhof skilfully combines regular and landscape parks, palaces of different architectural styles, small forms and fountains. The Peterhof collections, collected by the crowned owners of the residence to decorate it, consist of a variety of museum items. Each object, tells its own story, but also invites the reader to better understand the history of Russia.

The A. G. Leventis Gallery brings the grandeur of European art from the Renaissance to the 20th century, connecting the European continent with its south-eastern outpost by highlighting the unique relationship between art and its history. In this book, Director Loukia Hadjigavriel selects highlights from the Collection. From the outstanding paintings and objets d’art - Old Master paintings, Dutch still lifes, light-spirited Rococo pastorals, and boldly colored pointillist and fauve canvases; through the Gold Collection, where gold coins from antiquity unfold the history of the rulers and artists who created them; and into the development of modern Greek art, as well as the first generation of Cypriot artists from the beginning of the 20th century.

The Lobkowicz Collections rank among the oldest and largest privately owned collections of art, music and archival documents in Central Europe. Among the many musicians whose music played an important role in the life of the Lobkowicz family was Ludwig van Beethoven. Preserved in The Lobkowicz Collections are original manuscripts of significant works by Beethoven, many containing the composer’s own corrections, which were used by musicians in early performances. Some of these works were dedicated by Beethoven to Franz Joseph Maximilian, 7th Prince Lobkowicz. This volume reveals a remarkably fruitful period in Beethoven’s career, and the role that Prince Lobkowicz played in bringing his works to life.

Mesdag & Mancini Adrienne Quarles van Ufford Antonio Mancini (1852-1930) was one of the most important Italian painters of the 19th century. His talent was recognized early on by the Dutch painter Hendrik Willem Mesdag (1831-1915) who, together with his wife Sientje, bought many expressive paintings and drawings by the eccentric Italian. Mancini delighted in experimenting and incorporated fragments of glistening glass or other objects in his paint. The Mesdag Collection still owns fifteen works by Mancini. This book sheds light on his art and his turbulent life.

Recent figures speak of 68 million refugees in the world and 5 million stateless people; they are not recognized by their government and do not have a passport. The Paper Biennial 2020 shows the many interpretations and meanings of the term ‘Home’ that artists give to it in their work.

China Without Dragons Rare Pieces from Oriental Ceramic Society Regina Krahl

Furnishing the Gracious Chinese Home Philip Mak

Tanabe Chiku’unsai IV A Life With Bamboo Miho Sauser, translated by Ma Linchao

This fully illustrated and researched catalog commemorates an exhibition of over 200 pieces of Chinese and related ceramics collected within the members of the Oriental Ceramic Society of London. The selection spans the complete range from Neolithic to contemporary ceramics, and from pieces of academic interest to world-famous masterpieces. It privileges unusual and rarely seen artifacts and avoids well known, repetitive designs such as that of the dragon, which is so firmly identified with China that it has become a cliche of Chinese art. It also aims to demonstrate the vast variety of wares and the inventiveness of Asian potters well beyond the classic confines.

Chinese furniture design had been improved through the centuries, maturing during the 14th century. The multifunctional Chinese classical furniture facilitates the indoor and outdoor activities of its inhabitants. This book provides details on which pieces of furniture should be displayed in each chamber, as well as full-color illustrations and diagrams of how each piece was made and assembled. This includes three-dimensional drawings by Philip Mak and perspective views of the interior of various rooms. The author guides the readers through them, narrating the placement of furniture with inherent social implications. For easy reference, each piece is numbered and a more detailed description available in the catalog section of this book.

The bamboo: tall, strong and flexible. This fast-growing shoot has been used as a construction material, a foodstuff and fuel for millennia, from India to Japan. Tanabe Chiku’unsai IV’s art elevates bamboo to new heights. By weaving together small pieces of fibrous stalk, he creates vast, detailed sculptures without the use of rivets or adhesives. Under Chiku’unsai IV’s skilled craftsmanship, bamboo is more than a functional tool: it is modern art, a unifying symbol of Japanese culture. His sculptures revere traditional workmanship, while conveying important contemporary messages – the co-dependence of nature and man, and the importance of protecting our environment.

Bindu Space and Time in Raza’s Vision Geeti Sen The Bindu has been the leitmotif in S.H. Raza’s work, growing in meaning over many years. To this primordial symbol he was introduced as a boy of eight years, in his native village of Kakaiya in Madhya Pradesh. This revised edition traces the evolution of a vision over fifty years of painting by an artist who retained his Indian sensibility. His images are improvisations on an essential theme: the mapping out of a metaphorical space in the mind which is India.

Monsoon Mosques Arrival of Islam and the Development of a Mosque Vernacular Patricia Tusa Fels For centuries, monsoon winds brought traders from the Middle East to India, and onward to Malaysia and the Indonesian archipelago. As Islam peacefully spread through the Indian Ocean littoral, the coastal trading cities responded in extraordinary ways, modifying the form of the local tropical buildings of timber and stone to create a stylistic hybrid for their houses of prayer, the ubiquitous village mosque. Since their creation, these local mosques have been kept alive and well as dynamic expressions of place. But the 20th and 21st centuries have brought numerous threats to their continued existence and vitality. Monsoon Mosques explores the fate of these vibrant symbols of the integration of Islam into local culture.

Flower Shower The Culture of Flowers in India Alka Pande

Court & Courtship: Indian Miniatures in the TAPI Collection is a study of Indian paintings in which the author J.P. Losty explores the well-trod highways and the lesser-known byways of miniature paintings, put together by the well-known textile collectors, Praful and Shilpa Shah. Starting with a splendid 16th-century painting from the early Rajput Bhagvata Purana, readers will savor the variety of Mughal and other portraits of emperors, princes, courtiers, and of royal elephants and horses.

Flowers occupy a special role in Indian culture, history, myth and tradition.

Flower Shower explores this integral role that flowers play in our world. Discussing a range of topics from botany to aesthetics and history to poetry, the author takes you through an immersive journey, laden with the beauty and perfumes of the exotic, nutritional and decorative role of flowers within Indian tradition and aesthetics.

Painting in the Kangra Valley is an attempt to survey the painting styles of Guler and Kangra, which flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries. The painting activity began with Kashmiri painters, who started receiving royal patronage during the reign of Raja Dalip Singh (1695−1741) of Guler. But it attained culmination during the long reign of Maharaja Sansar Chand (1776−1823) of Kangra. The royal atelier of Kangra produced a large number of paintings covering diverse subjects. The advent of the Bhakti movement in north India had a tremendous impact, resulting in a preference for Krishna themes for the artists of Guler and Kangra.

Kashmir A Journey Through History Garry Weare Kashmir: A journey through history will appeal to the armchair traveler and history buff. Neither an academic tome nor a guidebook, it describes how Kashmir – ringed by snow-capped peaks – has attracted pilgrims and Sufis, armies and traders, travelers and adventurers, over the centuries, who embraced the crisp mountain air, a world away from the soaring heat of the Indian plains. The book traces the journey of the region from its ancient times to the present, with chapters highlighting periods in history, such as the role of the Mughal Emperors who created over 700 resplendent gardens and patronized the fine pashmina shawls that were to grace the palaces of India and Europe.

On the Trail of Buddha A Journey to the East Deepankar Aron

The Maharaja of Jodhpur’s Guns Robert Elgood

On the Trail of Buddha - A Journey to the East is a unique sojourn in search of the richness, depth, and breadth of the spiritual, philosophical, and cultural linkages that bind India to the East Asia civilizations of China, Japan, Korea, and Mongolia. From the wandering monks of Asia to the temples and monasteries they visited; from the emperors who embraced Buddhism to the relics of Buddha spread far and wide; from the diverse ethnicities of the people to their common gods and goddesses - the book touches upon the entire gamut of the East-Asian culture and its deep-rooted linkages with the Indian civilization, which will be an eye-opener for many.

Robert Elgood discusses the worldwide medieval diffusion of firearms technology and Arab, Ottoman, European and Chinese influences on the development of Indian firearms. Jodhpur was one of the most important military states in Rajasthan, playing a major role in the history of the subcontinent, never more so than during the reign of Maharaja Ajit Singhji (1678–1724) who purchased large numbers of guns when his daughter married the Mughal emperor.

Textiles of Rajasthan At the Jaipur Court Vandana Bhandari

Turbulent Times The Diaries of Prince Chakrabongse 1916 - 1920 Narisa Chakrabongse

Meticulously researched, with text and pictures that bring to life the nearly lost craft, this book traces the history of Phulkari through the ages: the craft, the decline, the revival. It highlights the agonies of lost finesse and compulsions of commoditisation that the practitioners of the art shared with the authors. And on a positive note, it shares instances of revival and innovation, narrates the robustness with which Phulkari has re-entered the imagination of designers. The book offers glimpses of India’s heritage and diverse treasure trove in the field of textile craft.

This is the fifth book in a new series of illustrated publications that was launched in 2014, with the intention of bringing the museum’s collections to the attention of a wider audience.

In this volume, Dr Vandana Bhandari, a noted expert in the field, focuses specially on textiles that were made locally. By showcasing and celebrating some of our best examples, we hope to raise awareness and interest and preserve the legacy of the magnificent textiles of Rajasthan.

Gandhi in the Gallery The Art of Disobedience Sumathi Ramaswamy Mohandas K. Gandhi has been described as ‘an artist of non-violence,’ crafting as he did a set of practices of the self and politics that earned him the mantle of Mahatma, ‘the great soul.’ His philosophy and praxis of satyagraha, nonviolent civil disobedience, has been analyzed extensively. But is satyagraha also an aesthetic regime, with practices akin to a work of art? Is Gandhi, then, an artist of disobedience? Sumathi Ramaswamy explores these questions with the help of India’s modern and contemporary artists who have over the past century sought out the Mahatma as their muse and invested in him across a wide range of media from painting and sculpture to video installation and digital production.

In truth, craft practices are all deeply connected to the elements and to nature. Seven distinguished writers and thinkers living in the Nordic region endeavor to flesh out concepts such as material interaction and material agency, Posthumanism, site-responsiveness, and symbiotic thinking in the field of crafts. How do artists explore the potential of materials and the four natural elements? What does a human-material interaction look like, and how might one approach a material, not from the position of a master but from that of a collaborator?

John McConnell: Design Robert McCrum John McConnell’s list of collaborators includes many household names - Boots, Faber & Faber, Halfords, Clarks, John Lewis. The man behind the Biba logo (for which he won the D&AD Silver in 1969), the logo of the National Grid and the covers of a Penguin student textbook series from the early ‘70s has exerted a quiet influence over British design since the sixties. His awards alone speak to his prowess: the Prince Philip Designers’ Prize (2002) and the title of RDI (Royal Designer of Industry, 1987) among them. Part biography, part showcase for some of McConnell’s most celebrated designs, this book gathers McConnell’s exclusive redesign for Faber & Faber - a revolutionary new approach to book covers from the early 1980s.

Tikimania Bernd Zimmer, die Marquesas-Inseln und der europäische Traum von der Südsee Edited by Hilke Thode-Arora, Museum Fünf Kontinente A South Seas dream and dangerous Other - the Marquesas Islands in the Pacific Ocean captivated such figures as Paul Gauguin and Herman Melville. Tikimania embarks on a unique journey to unravel the fascination, presenting the Tiki works of the Junge Wilde painter Bernd Zimmer alongside the Indigenous Marquesan art from the collection of the Museum Fünf Kontinente in Munich. An entirely new interplay of European art and Oceanic culture arises through the contrasts and harmonies as a result. In addition, the catalog traces European images of these islands, accompanies Karl von den Steinen on an ethnological expedition, and invites the reader to revive Tiki pop culture in America.

Max Schanz Spielzeug Gestalten im Erzgebirge Sabine Rommel, Mathias Zahn The leaping deer from the range of wooden toys from the Seiffen region is an international symbol in the gleaming eyes of children and collectors alike. It was designed by Max Schanz (1895–1953), who as a teacher and director of the Spielwarenfachschule [Technical College for Toys] informed the production of toys in the Erz Mountains. His designs were implemented through the division of labor in family-oriented cottage industries, achieving the standards set by the Werkbund [German Work Federation] for attractive aesthetic and professional production: from small carol singers to six-meter-high Christmas pyramids, all basic components were turned on the lathe and thus display the design idiom typical of Seiffen.

Young-Jae Lee Das Grün in den Schalen Edited by Gisela Jahn, Nadine Engel, Museum Folkwang, Essen Since 2006 Young-Jae Lee (b. 1951), the head of the ceramic workshop Margaretenhöhe Essen, has been creating her Spinatschalen (Spinach Bowls). Behind the purist form of Lee’s bowls lies a long history stretching back to Korean vessels of the Goryeo dynasty (918–1392) by way of Japanese tea bowls. This publication reveals much more than just the genesis of the Spinatschalen; it unlocks a piece of ceramic history. Negotiating the complex historical and cultural relationships between Japan and Korea against which the tea bowls evolved, it uses examples from Museum Folkwang to also illustrate the German reception of East Asian ceramic vessels at the dawn of the 20th century.

It also brought forth new concepts with which we had not reckoned a couple of years ago: virtual twins, AR or VR walk-through stands, online exhibitions with new meeting formats, or quite different ideas that are currently turning the sector upside down, providing new impetuses and making the trade fair a place as we have never known it before. The new trade fair yearbook presents not only the most exciting exhibition settings of the previous year but also entices us into virtual space.

This book presents embroidery in fashion. It includes clothes and accessories that were made or worn in the Netherlands from the late 16th century until today, and range from 18th-century men’s waistcoats to Roaring Twenties dresses and the latest creations by Gucci and Balmain. Embroidery in fashion expresses identity and status: people wore it to signal membership of a social group or to stand out from the crowd. It is also the ‘white’ thread that runs through important moments in life such as birth, baptism and marriage. But above all, embroidery is an indispensable part of the latest fashion trends, which ladies and gentlemen have been proud to show off for centuries.

A key figure in the Art Deco movement, artist Jean Dunand (1877-1942) stands out for his multiple talents as a sculptor, goldsmith, copper maker, but also lacquerer, bookbinder and decorator. After having excelled in finishing hammermounted vases and brassware, he met Seizo Sugawara in 1912 who led him to become passionate about lacquer. He participated in the major international exhibitions of his time, in Paris in 1925, 1931 and 1937, in New York in 1939, and was regularly exhibited at the Georges Petit gallery and at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs. This book charts a rich career of more than two thousand works, presented in a repertoire at the end of the book.

Jean-Michel Frank (1895-1941) is a legendary figure in the decorative arts. His style described as “poor luxury” is just as paradoxical as his life between parties and solitude, with loyal friendships for poets, artists who were decisive in the development of his aesthetic, but also his clients, people of the world of fashion or intellectuals. Indifferent to the great debates of the first half of a 20th century, Jean-Michel Frank did not seek to build a new world or to cling to a nostalgic past. With elegance, he broke conventions.

Aegean Legacies Greek Island Embroideries from the Ashmolean Museum Francesca Leoni Embroideries from the Greek islands dazzle with their bright colors and charming motifs. This publication reveals little-known pieces from the Ashmolean Museum at the University of Oxford, newly photographed and published here for the first time. As with all collections of textiles, the story of the Ashmolean holdings is chiefly about their makers and their ingenuity. Once forming the bulk of bridal trousseaux, Greek embroidered textiles were produced and maintained by young and old women for themselves and the house using locally produced materials. A mark of their worth and a platform for self-expression, embroidered textiles also helped Greek women to negotiate their place in the community, signaling status and affiliation.

HMKV Video of the Month HMKV AUSSTELLUNGSMAGAZIN 2020/1 Inke Arns, HMKV (Hartware MedienKunstVerein)

This book focuses on right-wing populist movements that are heavily reliant on the Internet and social media to spread their ideas. It explores the emergence of a (sub)culture of transgression in online forums such as 4chan and on platforms such as Breitbart News. The artists featured in this volume address Internet phenomena such as memes, figures such as Steve Bannon, flag worship, the prepper scene, white supremacists, and Dark Enlightenment. The catalog includes a comprehensive introduction to the issue, an interview with the science writer Angela Nagle, entries on all of the works, a critical glossary, and a list of links to relevant online resources.

Every month, the art association HMKV presents the latest videos by international artists in its series “HMKV Video of the Month” which has been ongoing since March 2014. For the first time, this publication unites all 78 works that have been exhibited since 2014. The videos address a variety of different topics and stories, ranging from labor conditions, structural changes, speculative technologies, or post-human machines to technology (and its history) as well as artificial intelligence. A wide array of works is devoted to the old ‘new’ right-wingers and the alt-right. The book not only shows stills of all videos, but each work is also accompanied by an introductory text to provide a comprehensive overview.

Deganit Stern Schocken: How Many Is One Jewellery / Objects / Installations Liesbeth den Besten

Plant Fever Towards a phytocentred design Edited by d-o-t-s (Laura Drouet & Olivier Lacrouts), Marie Pok

How Many Is One encapsulates one of the fundamental questions at the core of art and design. The oeuvre of Deganit Stern Schocken (b. 1947) has delved into the socio-political question of place, creating works in which text is incorporated as an integral part of the object; in the process the artist has adhered to the classical language of jewelry while employing state-of-the-art technologies. The book explores the architectural-planning aspect in Stern Schocken’s jewelry. While each object stands in its own right (like a building), it is also part of a system (the city).

For centuries, our inherent alienation from nature has prevented us from truly seeing plants and understanding them as more than simple materials or decorative objects.

Serial Eater Food Design Stories Benjamin Stoz Serial Eater dissects 30 years of experimentation and reflection on the ‘object’ food. Since its development in the 1990s until its actual status, food design analysis helps us to understand how consumption habits and our awareness of the food system have evolved. In an often anxiety-provoking approach to the future of food, food design questions our behavior, desires and doubts as eaters. It also proposes a more entertaining vision of our relationship to food (Italian Futurists, Eat Art, Marti Guixé...), whilst not forgetting its primary objective: nourishing our bodies, eyes and minds. From the origins of food design to current issues in terms of anthropology, jurisdiction and design.

AHCI – The Independent Spirit Time Makers Since 1985 Olivier Muller

Karl Fritsch: Ruby Gold Edited by Galerie Zink, Waldkirchen

Reinhold Ziegler: Transgression Heike Endter, Reinhold Ziegler

The Academy of Independent Creators in Watchmaking (Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants, AHCI) is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2020: that’s over one-third of a century of total independence, creativity, exhibitions, and sharing watchmaking craftsmanship. Here, AHCI, the oldest organization in the world devoted to protecting independent, artisanal watchmaking, presents an inside portrait of its members and candidates. They share their most iconic creations and their knowhow, give guided tours of their workshops, and offer a glimpse into their own private world. This dive into the beating heart of independent watchmaking is for all lovers of creativity and authenticity, be they connoisseurs of fine craftsmanship or experienced collectors willing to take the road less traveled.

Karl Fritsch (b. 1963), master of extravagant rings, returns with a publication that lures us deep into his world. Ruby Gold is a “no-frills” pared-back book, without pagination, without essays. Instead it comprises 81 rings from the past 20 years featuring embedded gemstones and such memorable slogans as “Fuck Off ” and “Nudelsuppe” (Noodle Soup). The jewelry artist’s unmatched mastery of material and expression is apparent in every single ring, and every piece possesses tremendous energy as a result of the delicate yet archaic handling of the precious metals: Karl Fritsch carves in silver, shapes in gold, sets rubies and zirconias as a child would decorate a cake - with selfconfidence and with no regard for waste.

The intention of Reinhold Ziegler’s jewelry objects is to move the attention of the wearer or onlooker from themselves onto something greater. Ziegler’s art is influenced by the French philosopher Georges Bataille, who in his work Eroticism identifies a strong dilemma in humanity in which, on one hand, we want to fight for our individuality yet, at the same time, have a strong desire to be united with what he calls ‘everything that is’. In this book, Ziegler deals with this topic from many angles - gravitation, vibration, meteorites, fossils, and general aspects of humanity such as tools (from the Stone Age), talismans, spirituality, and consciousness.

Munnu Vision and Passion Usha R Balakrishnan

The Thin Line Giada Ripa, text by Pippo Ciorra

Munnu: Vision & Passion traces the creativity and vivacity of the late Munnu Kasliwal. Kasliwal’s magical designs put The Gem Palace, his family’s jewelry house, and India on the fashion map of the jewelry world. The book follows the design journey of Munnu Kasliwal of The Gem Palace Jaipur, a jewelry house synonymous with luxury, sophisticated style, striking statement pieces, and exquisite craftsmanship. Munnu: Vision & Passion chronicles the metamorphosis of The Gem Palace from a local jewelry firm to an international jewelry house, an evolution synchronous with Munnu’s life. Published as a tribute to Munnu, this book documents his design journey for more than two decades.

Giada Ripa’s photos form an itinerary of landscapes traversing Italy, North to South, focusing on five regions: Friuli, Lombardy, Tuscany, Abruzzo, and Sicily. This account calls upon champions from each area who, through engaging interviews, describe the positive impact on its territory of the commitment of an important local business. Examples of this cooperation are the environmental revival carried out in the Prealpi Giulie Nature Reserve in Friuli, the conservation of local species of flowers carried out with the cooperation of the Botanical Gardens in Palermo, and stretches of land made available and leased free of charge. Thus, The Thin Line represents a hope, but also an awareness of the territory and of those who not only inhabit it now, but will come to inhabit it in the future.

The Gardens of Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot Yvonne Molenaar, Henk Boers

The Skipper’s War Dragon School, Oxford & The Great War Desmond Devitt

Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot is not just the oldest castle in the Netherlands. It is a magical place, surrounded by water and vegetation. The castle gardens feature lots of heritage varieties: vegetables, herbs, fruit, herbaceous plants and flowers (some of them edible). The produce from the gardens was for centuries used to prepare the exquisite meals at the castle. And the gardens still produce a rich harvest every year. Muiderslot is also part of the Amsterdam Defence Line, a World Heritage Site. The castle gardens are open daily, offering visitors the chance to enjoy this lush part of our heritage.

Charles ‘Skipper’ Lynam, the celebrated preparatory school headmaster at the Dragon School, Oxford, during the First World War, inspired a generation of his pupils as they found themselves caught up in the conflict. This book tells the story of the school’s wartime years and the various fronts on which its boys were involved. It traces the roots of a school founded by Oxford dons for their children, its idiosyncratic ways and the extraordinary relationship Skipper Lynam forged with his boys, some of whom (in former pupil John Betjeman’s words) ‘lost their lives for King and Country and the Dragon School’.

Insights into 19 Ateliers Photography by Sibylle Mania Frank Motz

Local Nomads Sustainable Adventures on Your Doorstep Elisaveta Schadrin-Esse

Richmond Park London’s Wildlife Haven Photography by Alex Saberi, text by John Karter

Sibylle Mania’s Insights into 19 Ateliers are more than just a chronicle of studios and workshops - they are windows into the world of creative processes. Yet in these analog black- and-white photographs, the artists themselves remain hidden. Within the intimate interiors, secretive chaos merges with productive efficiency. It is this interplay that fully draws the viewer into the world of painters, sculptors, ceramicists, photographers, metalworkers, and graphic artists. Sibylle Mania takes a step back as photographer and, in her meticulously selected details of the untouched workshops, leaves us with the impression of being immersed in a place where inspiration can turn into creation at any moment.

Even before the climate debate started, many nomads had already raised the questions about a simpler and more sustainable way to see the world. The desire for a decelerated life has long gripped the travel community and inspired families, solo adventurers, and outdoor fans to discover their home region. Slow movement, simple living, and sustainable travel are not just buzzwords, but rather reality which many modern explorers live. Local Nomads is an illustrated book about adventures on your own doorstep. In this volume, adventurers from around the world share their personal stories of discovering the nature wonders close to home - and inspire you to do the same. A small adventure can feel a world away.

Sir David Attenborough has described Richmond Park as “A very special place” - and with good reason. This vast oasis of green, just eight miles from the center of London, is an ecological pearl in the midst of sprawling urbanization. In this beautiful book, Alex Saberi captures Richmond Park’s unique blend of rare and diverse wildlife, plant life and rolling landscapes. From a crow perching on a bench in the morning haze to a foolhardy Labrador, breaking impatiently away from its owner, the photographs capture its inherent beauty.

1990,Peter Bux, Peter Krauskopf Rich in surplus goods, not short of opportunities and without need: the year 1990 also began in Leipzig as a great historical interim period. The old was gone, the new had not yet arrived, and a continuum of possibilities formed everyday life.

Albert Weis Changes Markus Heinzelmann Since the late 1990s, Albert Weis’s art has gained widespread public attention. His installations with their references to architecture, as well as his sculptural and photographic works, analyze the complex nature of urban spaces and examine how people interact with them. In addition to Weis’s visual exploration of existing urban spaces with his camera, he also investigates the utopian and dystopian qualities of modern architecture – above all by means of physical interventions. This book is the first-ever comprehensive monograph on Albert Weis. Containing numerous essays, in-depth information on individual works, and a wealth of images, it provides unique insights into the rich and diverse oeuvre of the artist.

Marvin Bohm You’re not as ___ as you think Marvin Böhm In 2017, Marvin Böhm’s mother was diagnosed with cancer. From then on, he began to capture his private life with a camera. He had little interest in chronicling her suffering and illness: Böhm’s main goal was to ‘carry on’ and continue into the future. Even though his mother appears in the pictures again and again, his attention was drawn especially to familiar settings and objects, friends and commonplace occurrences. Joined together, these pictures provide a photographic diary. Owing to their stylized black-and-white contrasts, the photos convey an atmosphere that is deeply moving and oscillates somewhere between drama and gloom.

Moritz Kustner Silence is the Sound of Fear Moritz Küstner In March 2014, Vladimir Putin signed an agreement that declared Crimea to be a part of the Russian Federation. The annexation of the peninsula was preceded by a controversial referendum, and neither the referendum nor the annexation have so far been recognized by the international community. The sanctions imposed against Russia and the crackdown on freedom of expression and the free press have dramatically changed people’s way of life. In particular, the Crimean Tartars, a Muslim minority, suffer intimidation and reprisals at the hands of the Russian authorities. The photographer Moritz Küstner spent five years, from 2015 to 2019, documenting the changes affecting Crimea and the lives of the Crimean Tartars.

Passing Through Nigel Grierson

x-mal Mensch Stuhl Angie Hiesl, Roland Kaiser

Passing Through is a book concerned with nature, and our transient connection to it. Consequently, the human figure is seen only occasionally and rather vague, like something from the imagination or a memory. Nigel Grierson’s visual journey through the seasons, treads a fine line between reality and fiction, in his search for abstraction and spirituality: “As adults, in search of sophistication, and jaded by the rigors of work, it’s easy to lose the natural sense of wonder, and to take for granted the things that fascinated us so much as children.”

The choreographer, performance and installation artist Angie Hiesl has been presenting her interdisciplinary projects since the 1980s, always and exclusively at “art-unrelated” locations in private and public urban spaces. Since 1997 she has been realizing her artistic projects together with the director, choreographer and visual artist Roland Kaiser. Her works, which have received many awards, are shown worldwide. Twenty-five years ago, she made aging in our society the subject of an artistic intervention in public space. With x-mal Mensch Stuhl she created a project that was performed in 16 countries in Europe, North and South America.

David Bowie by Sukita Masayoshi Sukita

Lightstream Nigel Grierson

With shimmering outfits, poetic texts and energetic performances David Bowie delighted millions of fans. As Ziggy Stardust, Major Tom or the Thin White Duke he proved his innovative power and eagerness to experiment. On the occasion of the 5th anniversary of Bowie’s death, photographer Masayoshi Sukita presents an extraordinary illustrated book on the celebrated musician, actor and producer. During their 40-year cooperation Sukita captured the essence of Bowie – in iconic blackand-white photos and extravagant portrait photos. The best of them were chosen for this book and topped off with informative texts.

Lightstream represents Nigel Grierson’s most recent foray into photographic abstraction as he makes long exposures of figures beside the light of the ocean. Taking the maxim from Dieter Appelt “A snapshot steals life that it cannot return. A long exposure (creates) a form that never existed”, Grierson makes beautiful images, which on the surface might appear to owe as much to the medium of painting as they do to photography. However, it is important to him that these are un-manipulated images straight from the camera.

The Museum of Doubt A Modest Manifesto by a Science Curator Marjan Doom If one wants to paint a realistic picture of the scientific practice, one cannot only parade success stories and easily digestible results. But how to present the beauty and complexity as well as the vulnerability of science without jeopardizing its credibility? In The Museum of Doubt Marjan Doom looks for an answer to that question. The opening of the Ghent University Museum (GUM) provided her, as curator, with the opportunity to reflect on the role of science museums in the 21st century. She delivers a passionate plea for a better dialog between science and art, but also for a revaluation of doubt. Like science itself, a museum is an ideal sanctuary to let go of false certainties and give doubt its rightful place again.

Beyond the Pain Edited by Madeleine Frey, Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen The catalog Beyond the Pain, published for the exhibition of the same name at Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen, addresses approaches to conquering pain within the visual arts. Twelve renowned national and international artists demonstrate how negative physical and psychological experiences can be transformed into a positive attitude to life, and contributions from academics complement and discuss the overcoming of pain. The reception of art, just like the experience of pain, is as much informed by cultural-societal norms as it is a profoundly individual experience; to this end contemporary art is connected to a universal theme of humanity.
