In “Sanctuary,” haunting images of the legendary Italian film studio Cinecittà capture the beauty of the decaying film sets. Texts from curators of the exhibition and Crewdson himself offer fresh insight and examine the parallels between these seemingly disparate subjects.

Living in the Material World George H arrison By Olivia Harrison

Edited by Mark Holborn


rawing on George Harrison’s personal

archive of photographs, letters, diaries, and

memorabilia, Olivia Harrison reveals the arc of his life, from his guitar-obsessed boyhood in Liverpool, to the astonishment of the Beatles years, to his days as

an independent musician and bohemian squire. Here too is the record of Harrison’s lifelong commitment to Indian music, and his adventures as a movie producer, Traveling Wilbury, and Formula One racing fan. The book is filled with stories and reminiscences from Harrison’s friends, including Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and many, many others. Among its previously unpublished riches are photographs taken by Harrison himself beginning in the mid-1960s. It is a rich tribute to a man who died far too young, but who touched the lives of millions. Olivia Harrison is a producer and philanthropist. She has received a Grammy Award for her video of the 2002 Concert for George, which she organized to benefit the Material World Charitable Foundation in memory of her husband, George Harrison; and a UNICEF Spirit of Compassion Award in recognition of her family’s assistance to the children of Bangladesh. Mark Holborn is a distinguished editor of illustrated books, who has worked with numerous photographers and artists, from Annie Leibovitz to Lucian Freud.

s e lling points ■ Many never-before-seen photographs from Harrison’s personal archive, including images from the height of Beatlemania ■ Features reminiscences from Harrison’s family and fellow musicians and artists, including Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Terry Gilliam, organized by his widow, Olivia Harrison ■ Coincides with the Martin Scorsese documentary Living in the Material World: George Harrison, to be broadcast worldwide in September

he Smurfs began as Les

Schtroumpfs in a Belgian comic

strip in October 1958 and quickly gained

popularity, launching comic books and classic figurines. But it wasn’t until the NBC cartoon that American audiences fell in love with the Smurfs. The show ran from 1981–1989, and fans can still watch episodes twice a day on Cartoon Network’s Boomerang channel. And now, the Smurfs are back in town, thanks to Columbia Pictures & Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming star-filled liveaction/CGI-hybrid movie premiering in summer 2011. The World of Smurfs will delve into the history of the series’ characters and profile Smurf village residents. It includes a biography of the creator, Peyo, a look back at the popular Hanna-Barbera–produced cartoon, and behind-thescenes photos from the upcoming movie. Everything will be topped off with seven unique interactive elements,

des Inclu llage f Vi smur r, mini poste c, & comi heet! er s stick

including stickers and an original mini-comic. This will be the first and only book to chronicle Smurf history for fans of all ages. Matt. Murray is the country’s leading Smurfologist and runs He was previously the executive director of the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art. He lives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

ountains have long fascinated both artists and photographers. A companion to the Swiss

photography festival Alt. +1000, held in the foothills of the Alps, High Altitude features works by contemporary photographers of mountains in their various and

continually changing states. It celebrates and challenges deeply rooted myths about Switzerland’s defining feature and, by extension, about mountains and mountain ranges worldwide. What remains of the myths linked to mountains? How do perceptions of them shift as their populations disappear, and cultural references are increasingly centered on an urban existence? What effect is climate change having on mountains? Including a new work by Olaf Otto Becker, renowned for his views of Greenland, High Altitude provides some of the answers to these questions. Nathalie Herschdorfer, curator and art historian, specializes in photography. Director of the festival Alt. +1000, she was previously a curator at the Musée de l’Elysée, Switzerland.

5,000 archeological masterworks created in a range of raw materials by ancient peoples. The house, the Casa del Alabado, or House of Praise, passed its name to the museum, a fitting one for the space that contains a unique collection of indigenous works of art, with some 500 pieces permanently on view. This book brings the art to a wider public, explaining the worldview and philosophy of these ancient people, in particular the importance of preserving life by maintaining the flow of cosmic energy and spiritual communication between the distinct worlds that made up their universe.

rom her early work with such writers as

Samuel Beckett, Eugène Ionesco, and John

Osborne, to her time with Laurence Olivier at the National Theatre, Jocelyn Herbert (1917–2003) pioneered a simple yet atmospheric set design style that remains influential today.

Published for the first time, Herbert’s sketchbooks provide an intimate portrait of her life and work. Illustrated with production stills and accompanied by commentaries from the actors, directors, and writers involved, this book brings to life a golden age of British theater and film.

artists like Peter Kennard, whose work demonstrates the important role art can play in political discourse. At turns challenging, unsettling, and poignant, these seven chapters combine new works made with Tarek Salhany with iconic images from throughout Kennard’s 40-year career. Together they create a moving statement about the impending eco-crisis, the arms race, war, and the injustices of the power structures dominating today’s world. Peter Kennard was born in London in 1949 and is senior tutor in photography at the Royal College of Art, London. His work is known internationally and held in many major collections, including Tate and the V&A. It also crosses over to myriad popular outlets such as newspapers, magazines, books, and television, and even appears on the streets.

n 1900 Pablo Picasso went to Paris to visit the Universal Exhibition and experience life in the art capital of the

world. His training had been in provincial Spanish art schools, but in the space of just a year he was offered an

exhibition at the prestigious Vollard Gallery. A few years later he was challenging Matisse for the position of leader of the French avant-garde. This book follows Picasso’s discovery of art and life in the French capital, and examines his response to specific artists, including Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rodin, and Cézanne. Amid the distractions of the bohemian district of Montmartre, he began to forge a personal style, which blurred the distinctions between imitation and reality, culminating in perhaps the most seminal painting of the 20th century, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. marilyn mcCully has organized numerous international exhibitions and written widely about Picasso. She is cocurator of Three Decades of Picasso’s Drawings, a 2011–12 exhibition at the Frick Collection, New York, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

9 780865 652750

guns. The result is a captivating series of portraits that reveal an unexpected complexity behind each woman’s attachment. For some, guns represent family and belonging. For others, they symbolize rebellion. Still others find their weapons empowering. Every photo tells a story enhanced by the woman’s own words. Here are a gun-toting bride, an only daughter who received her first .22-caliber rifle as a Christmas present when she was six, and a woman whose skills at the target range far exceed her husband’s. There are policewomen and hunters, ranchers and grandmothers. Although all of these remarkable women share a fondness for guns, no two of them are alike. lindsay mcCrum received a BA from Yale University and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work is exhibited in galleries in New York, California, and Berlin.

rom the romance of its evolution to the splendor of its design, the wedding dress is unlike any other garment, a talisman from a fantasy

world, the manifestation of dreams coming true. This book draws on wedding

garments in the V&A’s renowned collection along with photographs, letters, memoirs, and newspaper accounts to explore the history of the white wedding dress and the traditions that have developed around it from 1700 to today, when designers from Vera Wang to Vivienne Westwood continue to challenge the aesthetic. Paintings, drawings, and wedding photos depict queens, princesses, celebrities, and everyday women—including Kate Middleton—in their gowns. The text considers the dress in the context of the commercialization of weddings that began in the Victorian era. The Wedding Dress is not only about costume, but also about the cultivation of the image of the bride. edwina ehrman is a curator of Textiles and Fashion at the V&A and of the exhibition The Wedding Dress: 300 Years of Bridal Fashions. She is coauthor of The London Look: Fashion from Street to Catwalk and a contributor to The Englishness of English Dress.
