hat do we know about René Lacoste? That he was a French tennis legend, the founder of the Lacoste brand, and a

remarkable inventor? Lacoste (1904–1996) was an elegant player

with an acute sense of fair play, a demanding designer who revolutionized sports apparel, and a passionate engineer who invented the first tubular steel tennis racket. From the tennis court to the golf course, accompanied by family members or friends made along the way, the man called “the Alligator” was a determined visionary with an eye for authenticity and detail. René Lacoste remains to this day a timeless yet remarkably contemporary fashion icon. Published to celebrate the Lacoste brand’s 85th anniversary, this lavishly illustrated work includes a wealth of photographs and archival documents, some published here for the first time, and original drawings by the renowned French illustrator Floc’h.

xploring age-old beauty and well-being traditions as well as the latest scientific findings on skin cells, this book—and the

products and treatments it recommends—is the result of 15 years

of research and experience. Jean-Louis Poiroux, founder of Cinq Mōndes Spas, describes how the subtle interactions between body, mind, and skin can create a state of perfect equilibrium—and a feeling of outer and inner happiness, down to our very cells—or a state of imbalance, caused by unsuitable foods, stress, and cosmetics containing industrial byproducts and other chemicals. Drawing on the ancient teachings of Ayurveda and incorporating yoga, breathing exercises, and meditation as well as the natural active ingredients and micronutrients found in raw foods, super fruits, and vegetable super oils, he teaches you how to become happier, both inside and out.

Laurence Benaïm is a French journalist and fashion writer, and the official biographer of Yves Saint Laurent. Floc’h is a French illustrator and comic artist who has worked in the fields of film, advertising, newspapers and magazines, and publishing. He has coauthored comic books with François Rivière and has published children’s books

n Typeset in the Future, blogger and designer Dave Addey invites sci-fi movie fans on a journey through seven genre-

defining classics, discovering how they create compelling visions of the future through typography and design. The book delves deep into 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Trek: The Motion Picture,

Alien, Blade Runner, Total Recall, WALL·E, and Moon, studying the design tricks and inspirations that make each film transcend mere celluloid and become a believable reality. These studies are illustrated by film stills, concept art, type specimens, and ephemera, plus original interviews with Mike Okuda (Star Trek), Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall), and Ralph Eggleston and Craig Foster (Pixar). Typeset in the Future is an obsessively geeky study of how classic sci-fi movies draw us in to their imagined worlds—and how they have come to represent “THE FUTURE” in popular culture.

president. Known and beloved throughout the world as a vocal and fearless advocate for adult literacy,

fighting AIDS, our military families, and as a stalwart champion of the oppressed, especially the long-suffering people of Tibet, President Meyer is considered one of the world’s most notable people. In her own words, she reveals the innermost workings of the world’s most powerful office, sharing previous secret details along with her own personal feelings about the historic events of her time. In A Woman First: First Woman, President Selina Meyer tells the story of her times the way that only she could. Readers will gain new insights not only into Meyer herself but also the mechanics of governing and the many colorful personalities in Meyer’s orbit, including world leaders and her devoted cadre of allies and aides, many of them already familiar to the American people. The perfect gift for dad or grad, there has never been another book to compare with it in terms of both capturing the true essence of not only being president but also the very state of our union. In 2012, Selina Meyer made history when she was elected the first female vice president of the US as the running mate of President Stuart Hughes. When Hughes resigned in 2016, Meyer again electrified the world when she took charge in the Oval Office. Working round-the-clock with her signature drive and intelligence, Meyer managed to overcome decades of government indifference and inertia to create signature initiatives on a broad variety of fronts.

s Viv Groskop knows from personal experience, everything that has ever happened to a person has already happened in the Russian classics: from not being sure what to do with your

life (Anna Karenina), to being hopelessly in love with someone who doesn’t love you back (Turgenev’s

A Month in the Country), or being socially anxious about your appearance (all of Chekhov’s work). In The Anna Karenina Fix, a sort of literary self-help memoir, Groskop mines these and other works, as well as the lives of their celebrated creators, and her own experiences as a student of Russian, to answer the question “How should you live your life?” This is a charming and fiercely intelligent book, a love letter to Russian literature and an exploration of the answers these writers found to life’s questions. Viv Groskop is a journalist, author, cultural critic, and comedian. A graduate of Cambridge University and the University College London School of Slavonic and East European Studies, she is a regular contributor to The Guardian, The Observer, and the Mail on Sunday and has written for many other publications.

hat is it about evil that we find so compelling? From our obsession with serial killers to violence in pop culture, we seem inescapably drawn to the stories of monstrous acts and the

aberrant people who commit them. But evil, Dr. Julia Shaw argues, is all relative, rooted in our unique cultures. What one may consider normal, like sex before marriage, eating meat, or being a banker, others find abhorrent. And if evil is only in the eye of the beholder, can it be said to exist at all? In Evil,

Shaw uses case studies from academia, examples from popular culture, and anecdotes from everyday life to break down complex information and concepts like the neuroscience of evil, the psychology of bloodlust, and workplace misbehavior. This is a wide-ranging exploration into a fascinating, darkly compelling subject. Julia Shaw is a senior lecturer in criminology and psychology at London South Bank University. Born in Germany and raised in Canada, she has a MS in psychology and law and a PhD in psychology from the University of British Columbia. She is a regular contributor to Scientific American and Der Spiegel.

history of the Apollo. Since its inception as an AfricanAmerican theater in 1934, the Apollo, and the thousands of entertainers who performed there, have led the way in the presentation of swing, bebop, rhythm and blues, jazz, gospel, soul, funk and hip‑hop—along with the latest in

dance and comedy. The Apollo has nurtured and featured thousands of artists, many of whom have become legends. The beauty they have given the world—their art—transcends the hatred, ignorance, and intolerance that often made their lives difficult. Today, the Apollo enjoys an almost mythical status. With its breathtaking art, this graphic novel adaptation of Showtime at the Apollo brings to life the theater’s legendary significance in music history, African American history, and to the culture of New York City. Ted Fox is the author of Showtime at the Apollo: The Story of Harlem’s World Famous Theater—the definitive and only fullscale history of Harlem’s legendary showplace. He lives in Manhattan and in Dutchess County, New York. James Otis Smith is a multitalented artist whose work spans illustration, comics, motion graphics, and video. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.

March illustrator Nate Powell, Run brings to life the true story of John Lewis after the historic success of the Selma campaign. Days after the Voting Rights Act is signed into law, external forces in our society assemble to undo the hard-won protections at the ballot box. John Lewis, leading the

Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), one of history’s most important nonviolent organizations—built on consensus, integration, and nonviolence—struggles to survive in the face of powerful disagreements over black political power, white inclusion, the war in Vietnam, and the role of nonviolent civil disobedience in the movement. Run is the story of loss, and in the ashes of John Lewis’s role in the civil rights movement, he finds his future in public service. Congressman John Lewis is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and is the US Representative for Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District. An American icon known for his role in the civil rights movement, Lewis is also the author of the award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel memoir series March.

n Start with a Dot, author-illustrator Peter H. Reynolds takes you on a confidence-building

journey that starts with making one small mark on

a piece of paper. Branching out from the signature orange circle in his internationally beloved picture book The Dot, Reynolds begins by giving you permission to make just one dot and sign your name. Over the next several pages, you’re encouraged to take pleasure in making iterations of the dot: big dots, little dots, colorful dots, orderly dots, and scattered dots. It sounds crazily simple, but this kind of generative process is a key component to brainstorming and innovation. Throughout, Reynolds makes a connection to the meditative aspect of mark making. Drawing while focusing on your breath or doodling to free up the subconscious mind are just a couple of the many ways that the activities intersect with mindfulness. Peter H. Reynolds is the renowned illustrator behind the bestselling Judy Moody and Stink series, as well as many other bestselling and award-winning picture books, including The Dot and Ish. He lives in Dedham, Massachusetts.

Dad rushes through his chores. Even little Amy rushes through dinner. But Sloth does things slowly. He likes to take long, leisurely baths with lots and lots of bubbles.

Ghost lights are meant to stop ghosts from moving in the shadows of empty theaters. Most ghosts are harmless, but this one seems set on ruining their production of The Phantasm. Now, it’s up to Jory and the Backstagers to stop the ghost and save their school’s play. Heartfelt and uplifting, the Backstagers series shows you the magic that happens behind the scenes!

Boone’s first day of school gets off to a rocky start, but Hugo doesn’t have much time to worry before he makes another monster sighting and takes off after the creature. What follows are even more surprises, ones that have Hugo rethinking what it really means to be a “monster.” Ellen Potter is the award-winning author of many books for children, including the Olivia Kidney series, Slob, The Kneebone Boy, and most recently, the Piper Green series. She lives in Maine. Felicita Sala is a selftaught illustrator and lives in Rome.

O

n Gullstruck Island, legend has it that the mountain ranges and volcanoes are in charge.

Anger them, and you’ll pay the price. Keep them happy, and you’ll enjoy their protection.

These stories of the land’s command come in handy for quiet, near-invisible Hathin when she must run for her life. Hathin’s sister, Arilou, is believed to be a Lost. The Lost are held nearly sacred by those on Gullstruck, for they can send their senses away from their bodies. If Lost, Arilou can read a message across the island. If Lost, Arilou can hear whispers in the corners of private rooms. If Lost, Arilou can smell bread baking in the governor’s mansion. All from her beachside hut. But the question remains: Is Arilou really a Lost? When all the Lost drop dead—except Arilou—she and Hathin are swept into a grand conspiracy that leads them to the most sinister depths—and heights—of the island.

he autobiography of Mary Quant—the inventor of the miniskirt—was originally

published in 1966 at the height of Swinging London. After opening her groundbreaking boutique Bazaar on London’s King’s Road in 1955, Quant soared to international fame with her brand of witty style that fitted perfectly with modern city life. She was at the forefront of fashion’s democratization—seeking to eliminate snobbery and “make fashionable clothes available to everyone.” Just as her signature styles have become synonymous with the pop culture of the Swinging Sixties, her joyful, evocative autobiography captures the world in which she found inspiration—and which she ultimately helped to define and change. Mary Quant (b. 1934) studied at Goldsmith’s College in London. Famed for popularizing the miniskirt, she was awarded an OBE in 1966.

rom a distance, micromosaics appear like paintings; it is only on closer inspection that

the intricate patterns of tesserae (the tiny pieces

of stone, tile, or glass used to create the mosaic) become apparent. Some of the most virtuosic examples of this art appear in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Gilbert Collection. Sir Arthur Gilbert was credited with coining the term “micro­mosaics” and this superlative collection includes pieces ranging from portraits to table tops. Illustrated with stunning photography, this new book explores the technical aspects of making micromosaics as well as the cultural atmosphere in which such pieces first flourished during the late 18th century. Author Heike Zech traces their evolution through the 19th century until the technique virtually vanished in the early 1900s. Heike Zech is former curator of the Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

the time. Over the course of the year he created some of his best-loved works, from color-saturated portraits to surrealist drawings. In his personal life, throughout 1932, Picasso kept a delicate balance between tending to his wife Olga Khokhlova and their son, Paulo, and his passionate love affair with Marie-Thérèse Walter, who was 28 years his junior. This publication brings these complex artistic and personal dynamics to life. Picasso’s journeys throughout the year, between his country home in Boisgeloup, in Brittany, and his house in Paris, capture the contradictions of his existence at this pivotal moment: a life divided between countryside retreat and urban bustle, established wife and recent lover, painting and sculpture, sensuality and darkness. This lavishly illustrated book explores the major themes and concerns of 1932 in essays, artworks, and archival photographs. Achim Borchardt-Hume is director of exhibitions, Tate Modern.

ince the turn of the century, technology has transformed the way we communicate and consume,

how we work and fall in love and navigate the world. We

are increasingly reliant on it—but few of us know anything about the science that is driving this technological change. Kurt Vonnegut famously said that to leave technology out of fiction is to misrepresent life. Here, six acclaimed graphic novelists present reports from the digital frontier. Exploring everything from artificial intelligence to virtual reality, I Feel Machine is by turns cautionary and celebratory, touching and terrifying. It challenges and confronts the digital world using the most technologically efficient machine ever invented: the book. Krent Able is a London-based comics artist and illustrator.

’n’ roll scene. Drugs, prostitution, teenage rebellion: the

punk quartet wrote about what they knew—and the result

was an explosive, radical new sound. Their honest, frenzied, and furious performances, not to mention their iconic look, would change rock music forever. Told through the eyes of Dee Dee Ramone, this graphic novel traces the life of the band’s creative soul, spanning his troubled years at a military school in Germany, his early experiences with opiates, his family’s relocation to New York, and his first encounters with fellow misfits Joey, Johnny, and Tommy. This fascinating graphic portrait of the band’s development takes readers from The Ramone’s dismal first show to Dee Dee’s death in 2002, shortly after the band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Warhol’s silk-screen prints are the epitome of Pop Art: witty, gimmicky, and unafraid of repetition. Obsessed with consumerism and the cult of celebrity, Warhol (1928–1987) exalted the “surface of things”—and yet he was a man of deep complexity.

t is the long, hot summer of 1976. Hugo, the youngest child of three, is walking with his father in the woods.

There, he comes face-to-face with a wolf—and from that moment on, his life will never be the same again. Soon after, a tragic accident leaves Hugo desolate and disoriented. The family, now grieving and incomplete, moves to a new home. Among Hugo’s new neighbors is the Wolf Man—a dangerous recluse, according to the boy next door. Spellbound by the movie The Time Machine and desperate to return to the days before the accident, Hugo draws up plans to build a contraption that will turn back time. But only the Wolf Man has the parts Hugo needs to complete his machine, and that will mean entering his sinister neighbor’s house. Beautifully illustrated in pencil, Wolf is a captivating and poignant graphic novel about confronting childhood grief and overcoming the loss of a loved one. Rachael Ball is the author of the graphic novel The Inflatable Woman. Her comics and illustrations have appeared in Deadline, the Radio Times, and many other publications.

road, there is a village called Lip Hook. For its inhabit-

ants, the village is more than the end of the road—it’s the end of the world. Beyond it, there is nothing but mist-shrouded marshland. Few travelers take the road to Lip Hook, but one foggy night, a car speeds perilously toward the village. The driver is a dangerously beautiful woman, the passenger a man with a gunshot wound and a suitcase containing a treasure he has risked his life for. Cash-strapped but in need of a place to hide, the two fugitives seek shelter at the Hanged Man Inn, where the woman persuades the innkeeper to accept payment in kind. As days pass and the woman extends her services to more of Lip Hook's men, among them the village priest, a false faith grips the community—and reason, logic, and humanity begin to disappear. David Hine is a London-based comics writer. He has written extensively for Marvel, DC, and 2000AD. Mark Stafford is the cartoonist-in-residence at London’s Cartoon Museum.

In 2008–11, she participated in fieldwork among the Baga with the Yale University Museum of Art.

his is the first book on the work of Fernando

Costa (b. 1972), an eclectic, self-taught

French artist. Costa works in an unusual medium: He collects damaged street signs and cuts them up, smooths them down, and reassembles them, welding the pieces onto large metal plaques to

create energetic, colorful works of extraordinary originality. Some of the works are figurative, echoing Pop Art, moments from the artist’s life, or people who have influenced him, such as the Beatles, the British cyclist Tom Simpson, or Josephine Baker. Other works flirt with abstraction derived from cubism and the mechanical music of Edgard Varèse. In 2013, he was the 18th artist selected to create the Art Car for the 24 Hours of Le Mans car race, following in the footsteps of Calder, Warhol, and Koons. Johan-Frédérik Hel Guedj is a French writer who has published short stories, two novels, and an account of polar exploration. He lives in Brussels and writes on contemporary art in the daily newspaper L’Echo/De Tijd.

poetic, beautifully illustrated picture book inspired by Ode to the Onion by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda (1904–1973). Pablo has a lunch date with his friend Matilde, who shows the

moody poet her garden. Where Pablo sees conflict and sadness, Matilde sees love and hope. The story is less a biography of Neruda and his muse, Matilde Urrutia (1912–1985), and more a simple ode to a vegetable that is humble and luminous, dark and light, gloomy and glad, full of grief and full of

joy—just like life. Alexandria Giardino is a writer and translator. Her work includes translating My Life with Pablo Neruda by Matilde Urrutia and her essays have appeared in the Village Voice Literary Supplement, Marie Claire, Discover, American Poetry Review, and on air at KQED.

r. Finch leads a quiet life with his best friend, a small red bird. Nothing very exciting ever happens to them, and that suits Mr. Finch just fine. Until one day when Mr. Finch’s one and only

friend disappears! Worried, Mr. Finch heads off in search of the bird, right into the heart of a jungle that has recently invaded the city. Suddenly, Mr. Finch finds himself on an extraordinary journey that teaches him a lot about himself. Will this journey allow the two friends to take flight and finally find true happiness? Thomas Baas was born in Strasbourg, France, where he attended the College of Decorative Arts. He has illustrated many children’s books.
