incent van Gogh: The Lost Arles Sketchbook reproduces, for the first time, ­previously unknown drawings by the artist. Heavily illustrated with both the previously unpub-

lished drawings and many of his iconic paintings, this groundbreaking book will offer fresh

insight into the most creative period of Van Gogh’s career. After settling in Arles in 1888, Van Gogh produced approximately 200 paintings, including many of his best-known works, such as The Yellow House, Starry Night, and The Night Café. Art historians have pored over Van Gogh’s work in Arles and have written countless pages on this time period, making it one of the most examined and well-known moments in art history. It is extraordinary that new material is now available for us to explore. Originated by Les Éditions du Seuil in Paris, the book will be published simultaneously in French by Les Éditions du Seuil, in German by Knesebeck, in Dutch by Lannoo, and in Japanese, with several other languages to be published at a later date.

he beauty of Monaco—Colette called it “a country whose borders are made of flowers”—is revealed as

never before in this new book from French photographer

Jean-Baptiste Leroux. Leroux focuses his lens not on the usual tourist attractions, but rather on the passage of time. As an artist fascinated by light, Leroux visited the same landscapes over and over at different hours of the day and night, capturing the subtle, shifting colors of the city: skies, waves, belle epoque mansions, the Casino, the Monte Carlo harbor, parks, and more. From dawn to dusk, in all seasons, these delicate images reveal Monaco’s natural and architectural beauty. In her accompanying text, Mic Chamblas-Ploton explores the history of the Monegasque landscape. Jean-Baptiste Leroux is a well-known landscape and garden photographer whose previous books include Royal Gardens: Extraordinary Edens from Around the World. Mic Chamblas-Ploton is a lifestyle journalist and author who specializes in garden and estate design. She contributed to Royal Gardens.

From chafing to the best times to run, explaining the phenomenon known as the “Oprah Line,” and exposing the torture that is a premarathon expo, Cohen acts as your satirical guide to every aspect of the runner’s experience. Offering both real advice and genuine commiseration with runners of all skill levels, How to Lose a Marathon lets you know that even if you believe that the “runner’s high” is a complete myth, you can still survive all 26.2 miles of a marathon. Joel Cohen is a writer and producer for The Simpsons. He’s also written for Suddenly Susan. He is the winner of two Emmy Awards and three Writers Guild Awards. He also proudly (and barely) completed the 2013 New York City Marathon.

JOY DIVISION UNKNOWN PLEASURES by Geoff Rickly

can bring. His voice is deep and commanding, yet fragile, shot through with anxiety. It echoes, as if issued from the center of an empty factory. And the shadow of the factory never left Curtis’s voice. For every prophetic line, delivered in an omniscient baritone, there’s a later one Curtis delivers in a manic outburst, as on “Shadowplay,” where he screams, “To the center of the city where all roads meet, waiting for you.” These moments remind us that Curtis was all too human—he took his own life just a year after this seminal debut was released. Despite the music’s dark tone, Curtis returns repeatedly to a longing for connection, singing, “I tried to get to you,” until it becomes an incantation on “Candidate.” This may be the thing that separates them from the postpunk and goth groups that followed: Joy Division were disaffected outsiders looking for a way to connect, not entitled insiders trying to broadcast their disaffection and alienate people. So when Ian Curtis sings, “And she turned around and took me by the hand/And said I’ve lost control again,” it calls back to “Disorder” and the guide he was searching for at the opening of the record. The tenderness of “took me by the hand” and the vulnerability of finding someone else willing to share the loss of control are what make this record so affecting. Knowing that Curtis would end his own life just one year later, we hope that, for a moment, he was able to outrun that depression; we hope that maybe he found someone to join hands with and escape the long shadow of the factory.

It’s hard to imagine a world where Joy Division isn’t the stock answer to, “What does your band sound like?” But in 1979, punk was a cartoonish new trend, and there was no such thing as goth or post-punk. Even if you can’t imagine such a time, when you put on Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and play the first song, “Disorder,” you can still hear the sound of music changing forever. The sound is singular but every instrument in the mix is distinct: they are playing the same song at the same time but each member plays alone; every part is highly figurative, each representing different dimensions of postmodern life. Producer Martin Hannett doesn’t just capture the militant march of Stephen Morris’s drums, he captures the atmosphere of war in the hollow echo of every hit: you can see soldiers’ breath in the space between each snare drum; the blood freezing in the snow almost as cold as the look in Ian Curtis’s eyes. Peter Hook’s bass (playing an octave higher than traditional bass players) becomes the conscience of the music, alone in the war, alone in the busy streets, alone on the factory line; it wanders like a thought, equal parts hope and mourning. Bernard Sumner’s guitars are all sharp angles and radio static. They represent the voices of others; the thoughts you can’t tune out. This is the world that Ian Curtis lived in. So when he sings, “I’ve been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand,” he sounds like a lonely god, searching for a salvation only he

An entire generation of kids got introduced to Roberta Flack—nearly 20 years after she was a Grammy-winning artist—thanks to the Fugees. Well, specifically Lauryn Hill, who flipped Flack’s “Killing Me Softly with His Song” into the Fugees’ biggest hit; a song so big Wyclef Jean was able to run for president of Haiti off his fame from that (basically). Flack was able to re-release the song as a dance remix in ’96 after the Fugees’ version blew up, and it hit number one on the dance charts. For better or worse, Roberta Flack’s legacy in musical history is probably going to come down to that song, and maybe her duet with Donny Hathaway from 1978, “The Closer I Get to You.” That’s more than most people get, but those two songs can’t reduce the power of Flack’s career—for a stretch in the early ’70s, she was the biggest-selling female singer—or ignore her deep catalog of perfect jazz-pop albums. First Take is more jazz-oriented, and was legendarily recorded in ten hours, and Chapter Two is the one you own if you’re a completist, but the essential Flack record to own is Killing Me Softly, an album that lives up to the evergreen single it spawned.

Like all of Flack’s records, Killing Me Softly is built on her show-stopping, limitless voice and her Walden Pond-pristine arrangements. Killing Me Softly starts with the stunning title track, before hitting another early peak with “No Tears (in the End),” a spunky tell-off to a romantic partner, where Flack simultaneously issues a warning and worries about his ability to make her cry. “River” plays like what would have happened if Flack signed to Motown, and the album’s closer, the 9-minute torch song “Suzanne,” rolls and picks up steam, constantly building towards its conclusion. Flack was nominated for Album of the Year for Killing Me Softly, losing to Stevie Wonder’s Innervisions. But at the 1974 Grammys, she won Record of the Year for “Killing Me Softly with His Song,” becoming the first (and only, till U2 won in 2001 and 2002) artist to win back-to-back Record of the Year Grammys (she won in 1973 for “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”). She might go down in recent memory for her link to the Fugees, but, for a time, Roberta ruled music like no other. Killing Me Softly was her reign’s greatest moment.

damn record club out there.” Founded in 2013, they believe that an album isn’t something you simply own, and their mission is to turn music listening into an immersive sensory experience. They can be found at vinylmeplease.com.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that in the late ’90s, Neutral Milk Hotel existed in real life. They went on tours, sold merch, did interviews; Jeff Mangum was just a weirdo lifer from Louisiana with an unsubtle crush on rinky-dink, pre-war Americana. It’s hard to build a massive shadow when you’re standing on coffee-shop stages. In the Aeroplane Over the Sea received workmanlike treatment from critics—a standard 3/5 from Rolling Stone, an enthused 8.7 from Pitchfork—and that was it. An album by a band. But then, after the band’s abrupt, mysterious breakup in 1999, something strange began to happen. In the Aeroplane Over the Sea became legendary. A new generation, kids without the humanizing memories of witnessing Neutral Milk Hotel in person, pored over its mysterious crevices. The surreal, unsettling, ambiguous album cover, the dying embers of “Two-Headed Boy Part 2,” the chaos of “Holland, 1945,” the delicious puzzle of what

drove Mangum away from the music business and into hermitism. In the Aeroplane Over the Sea emerged as the 21st century’s very own Pet Sounds, earning ringing endorsements from Win Butler and Jesse Lacey, and remaining completely remote from any reunions, archives, rumors, or paper trails. There was a small sense of closure in 2012, as Jeff Mangum returned from the darkness to play a small tour of Neutral Milk Hotel songs for his patient cult. It was strange hearing these visceral songs return home. Again, just an album by a band. But I think we all prefer to remember Aeroplane as something outside of time. A bizarre, terrifying wonderland of singing saw and hurdy-gurdy, impossibly beautiful words about eyes, and sleep, and love, happily unaware of the lineage of everything else happening in 1998. It’s an album on the edge of a universe, more questions than answers; nobody will ever be completely satisfied. And that’s why we love it.

O

n April 6, 1917, the United States declared war on Germany and joined World War I. German submarine attacks on American ships

in March 1917 were the overt motive for declaring war, but the underlying

reasons were far more complex. Even after the United States officially joined, Americans were divided on whether they should be a part of it. Americans were told they were fighting a war for democracy, but with racial segregation rampant in the United States, new laws against dissent and espionage being passed, and bankers and industrial leaders gaining increased influence and power, what did democracy mean? Come On In, America explores not only how and why the United States joined World War I, but also the events—at home and overseas—that changed the course of American history. Linda Barrett Osborne is the author of Traveling the Freedom Road, Miles to Go for Freedom, and This Land Is Our Land. She was a senior writer-editor in the Library of Congress Publishing Office for fifteen years. Osborne lives in Washington, D.C.

Even today, Balenciaga’s name remains synonymous with quality. This fully revised and extended edition of Balenciaga offers a thorough examination of the Spanish-born couturier’s designs and business practice, and places him firmly in the context of the time, looking at the country in which he learned his trade and the international fashion scene in which he matured and triumphed. His perfectionism, effortless, iconic style, and the wearability of his clothes continue to influence designers today. Illustrated with archival images as well as stunning new photography, this book explores Balenciaga’s legacy in fascinating detail.

nformal Beauty explores the photographic works of Paul Nash (1889–1946), one of the

most significant British artists of the 20th century.

Best known for his evocative paintings of war-ravaged landscapes and his quasi-Surrealist visions of the English countryside, Nash was also a consummate photographer, who believed that the camera could reveal aspects of the world that the painter could not. Beginning in 1930, he regularly experimented with photography, working with a No. 1A pocket Kodak series 2 camera. Including a highly informative contextual essay by Simon Grant, Informal Beauty explores the experimental nature of Nash’s output and the intensity and power of his photographic vision. Simon Grant is editor of TATE ETC magazine and coeditor of Picpus magazine.

ince Tate Modern opened in London in 2000, the Turbine Hall has hosted some of the world’s most memorable and

acclaimed works of contemporary art, reaching an audience of millions. The way artists have interpreted this vast industrial space has revolutionized public perceptions of contemporary art in the

21st century. Philippe Parreno (b. 1964) is a leading French artist who works in film, video, sound, sculpture, performance, and information technology. His work explores the borders between reality and fiction, and he sees his exhibitions as choreographed spaces that follow a score, during which a series of different events unfold. These kaleidoscopic environments redefine the museum-going experience. Created in close collaboration with the artist, the book features a fully illustrated survey of Parreno’s life and work and an in-depth interview with curator Andrea Lissoni. Exploring in fascinating detail the artistic processes involved in creating this exciting new work, it includes stunning photographs of the dramatic new installation in the Turbine Hall from October 2016 through April 2017. Andrea Lissoni is senior curator of international art/film, Tate Modern.

T

his book is the first important monograph dedicated to the work of Pablo Reinoso (b. 1955), a leading French-Argentinian artist and

designer known for his Spaghetti Benches—found all over the world—and his variations of the iconic Thonet chair. Over more than 40 years, Reinoso has produced his works in series. Here, in more than 200 superb color illustrations, are Reinoso’s bestknown masterpieces as well as more recent works that have been on view

around the world. In his most recent series, Scribbling Benches (started in 2009), Reinoso no longer takes an anonymous bench, nor an iconic chair, as his point of departure, but instead a steel girder. These works play on the unexpectedness of a solid, heavy object, a key structural component in architecture, that is made to twist like a piece of wire and turn into a bench suggesting airy, transparent, contemplative spaces. The book explores Reinoso’s worlds and his uses of different materials, which constantly translate the permanent into a work in progress. Gérard Wajcman is a lecturer in the Department of Psychoanalysis at the University of Paris 8. Henri-François Debailleux is a longtime contributor to Libération; he also teaches at the Institut des Carrières Artistiques.

uring the Golden Age of Magic—the 1880s to the

1940s—magicians and prestidigitators fought a

veritable advertising war. In the United States, Canada, and Europe, city walls were plastered with posters offering tantalizing previews of magician’s most spectacular tricks. Poster designers and printers were inspired by all variety of phantasmagoric imagery: devils and demons, skeletons and skulls, cards and rabbits, alluring assistants and symbols of exoticism. Here, 250 breathtaking posters, mostly dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, retrace the social history of this still-active phenomenon.

iggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke: David Bowie had an extraordinary talent

for reinvention. But at the beginning of his career, he made the most significant transformation of his life: from

“David” to Bowie. In 1969, shortly after the release of his first hit single, David and his girlfriend Angie move into Haddon Hall,

9 781910 593264

a sprawling Victorian villa in the London suburbs. Part commune, part creative hub, the house becomes home to a community of musicians, hippies, and hangers-on. As egos clash and parties get out of hand, David keeps writing: “Changes,” “Kooks,” “Life on Mars”—songs that will propel him to global fame. Charting Bowie’s personal life, the development of his music, and the transformation of his image, Haddon Hall is an evocative portrait of a young artist presiding over a musical revolution. Néjib is a graphic designer and comics artist. Born in Tunisia, he now lives and works in Paris.
