Gene Roddenberry’s original pitch, which included character and set descriptions, began: Star Trek is a Wagon Train concept—built around characters who travel to worlds “similar” to our own, and meet the action-adventuredrama which becomes our stories. Their transportation is the cruiser S.S. Yorktown, performing a well-defined and long-range ExplorationScience-Security mission which helps create our format.

Catlg10_002-63.indd 20

The time is “Somewhere in the future.” It could be 1995 or maybe even 2995. In other words, close enough to our own time for our continuing characters to be fully identifiable as people like us, but far enough into the future for galaxy travel to be thoroughly established (happily eliminating the need to encumber our stories with tiresome scientific explanation).

Camelot portrait of

a thousand days in the kennedy white house

PHOTOG RAP H S BY C E C IL STOUGH TON

Published

to commemorate the 50th

anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s election as president of the United States, this book is a revealing and intimate portrait of a leader, husband, and father as seen through the lens of Cecil Stoughton, the first official White House photographer. Stoughton’s close rapport with the president and first lady gave him extraordinary access to the Oval Office, the Kennedys’ private quarters and homes, to state dinners, cabinet meetings, diplomatic trips, and family holidays. Drawing on Stoughton’s unparalleled body of photographs, most rarely or never before reproduced, and supported by a deeply thoughtful narrative by political historian Richard Reeves, Portrait of Camelot is an unprecedented portrayal of the power, politics, and warmly personal aspects of Camelot’s 1,065 days. Richard Reeves has received dozens of awards for his work in print, television, and film. He is Senior Lecturer at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Cecil Stoughton studied with Alfred Eisenstadt and Margaret Bourke-White in the U.S. Army photographer training program and then joined the Army’s Public Information Office. Harvey Sawler is a Canadian author who interviewed Cecil Stoughton extensively before the

September 13 The president ceremoniously signs S1956, an interstate crime bill. Standing behind him are New York Republican Senator Kenneth Keating, who was the bill’s principal sponsor, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, and the president’s brother, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. (Within three years, Robert Kennedy would run against Keating and defeat him for the senatorial seat.)

1963

September 14 Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy preferred gracious Newport, Rhode Island, where she had summered as a girl, to the rough and ready ocean life of the Kennedys of Hyannisport, Massachusetts. She had no trouble, however, getting her husband, the enthusiastic sailor, to Newport in 1962 for the 18th America’s Cup Final between the American sailboat, Weatherly, and Australia’s first contender, the Gretel. Both the Kennedys were in their element at the glamorous dinner before the race began. Said the president that night: “I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it is because in addition to the fact that the sea changes and the light changes, and ships change, it is because we all came from the sea. We have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it we are going back from whence we came.”

November 22 Suite 850 of the Texas Hotel in Fort Worth was decorated with a Monet, a Van Gogh, and a Picasso (the paintings were from local museums) when the Kennedys spent the night of November 21. In the morning the president looked out the window and saw a crowd gathering below to hear him speak. There were more people than he had expected. “Isn’t that terrific?” he asked his wife. A few minutes later, he looked out again and said to Kenny O’ Donnell: “Look at that platform. With all these buildings around it, the Secret Service couldn’t stop someone who wanted to get you.” When Kennedy got downstairs, the crowd cheered and someone shouted, “Where’s Jackie?” The president pointed up toward the eighth floor and said: “Mrs. Kennedy is organizing herself. It takes longer, but of course she looks better than we do when she does it.” When the cheering stopped he went back into the hotel and the couple came out together and were driven to the airport for the short flight to Love Field in Dallas.

From the Introduction

“This book is a tribute to beloved American desserts—treats and baked goods that are regional gems, fading beauties, or family secrets. . . . Renato and I set about looking for the roadways and history to all things sweet and realized that there is no direct route. Most recipes we found had been altered and tweaked by so many hands that one person’s simple chocolate cake recipe was completely different from the next-door neighbor’s, not to mention the recipe from the person two states over. In some instances, we left recipes virtually unchanged from the version we were given. In other cases we performed a Baked makeover. This is not a compendium, nor a voluminous history of baked goods. Think of it as an easygoing road trip with stop-offs at the quirky and unusual monuments.”

Each photo is spectacular on its own, but the effort of constructing it is equally fascinating. Every image in the book is followed by an essay about the creative process and stories from the photo shoots, as well as behind-thescenes material such as preliminary sketches, making-of photos, detail shots, and a list of the ingredients and their position in the final picture.

SELLING POINTS

■ Spike Lee and other high-profile personalities and musicians offer up never-before-told boombox memories ■ Classic hip-hop and punk are big, mainstream subjects, and this is a fresh and unique take on those cultures ■ A guy-friendly gift that’s part “gadget porn,” part cool music history

On the heels

of the graffiti

renaissance comes a vibrant look at an old-school icon that figured prominently in the hip-hop, rock & roll, and punk movements of the 1970s and 80s. The Boombox Project features contemporary fine art portraits of an array of vintage boomboxes, as well as scores of documentary photographs of the people who brought the boombox movement to life back in the day. The book is more than just a collection of images, though; it’s also an oral history of the early days of hip-hop, featuring memories from Fab Five Freddie, Bob Gruen, Rosie Perez, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J, Lisa Lisa, DJ Spooky, and Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, among others, on the role this once ubiquitous machine played. Part pop cultural history and part “gadget porn,” this lively and highly stylish volume is one of the cool books of the season.

African and Asian headdresses come to life in marvelous reproductions. Made by remarkably skilled craftsmen, each distinctive form of headwear has an opulence and symbolism of its own. Constructed with plant materials such as fibers, seeds, leaves, and flowers, as well as feathers, shells, teeth, and fur, each of these articles was designated for a different member of society. The headdresses were worn by initiates, hunters and warriors, religious dignitaries and healers, rulers and notables, unmarried girls, married women, and young mothers. Some examples also include iron, copper, silver, and gold. Powerful Headdresses illustrates and explains the signifi cance of these important cultural symbols, and explains how, as trade increased, knowledge of new techniques and methods of fabrication advanced the decorative beauty of historic headwear.

Originally

associated with pop art, in

the past 50 years, Joe Tilson (b. 1928) has achieved international acclaim for the individuality and originality of his paintings, constructions, painted reliefs, prints, and multiples. As an artist who refused the traditional boundaries of printmaking, his multiples often include found objects or newspaper cuttings, fusing a cubist approach with his pop sensibility. His more recent prints mix silkscreen, woodcut, and etching to produce radiant matrixes of rich color, embedded with butterflies, birds, and objects loaded with symbolic meaning. Richly illustrated and produced, this book confirms Tilson’s reputation as one of the most innovative and exciting artists of his generation. Enzo Di Martino is a curator and art critic.

British

painter Chris Ofili (b. 1968) is one of the

most remarkable artists of his generation. This vibrantly illustrated survey, which accompanies a major Tate exhibition, sheds new light on Ofili’s inspiration and technique. Ofili’s paintings often refer to his Nigerian heritage and the wider African-American and Afro-Caribbean experience. He uses a range of materials in his works, including sequins, glitter, map pins, and his trademark, varnished elephant dung. Because of this, Ofili’s painting The Holy Virgin Mary was declared “blasphemous” by former New York City mayor Rudy Guiliani when it arrived at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999 for the Sensation exhibition. An outstanding artist whose work garners attention worldwide, Ofili was closely involved with the preparation of this volume. Judith Nesbitt is chief curator at Tate Britain. Okwui

A leading

figure in the Abstract

Expressionist movement, Arshile Gorky (1904–1948) is a pivotal figure in American painting who bridged European modernism and the New York School. This attractive introduction, published to coincide with a major traveling exhibition of his work, provides new insight into the tragic life and important career of one of the 20th century’s greatest painters. After fleeing the Turkish incursion into Armenia, Gorky arrived in New York in 1920 and swiftly became an integral part of the American art scene. His most famous early work, The Artist and his Mother, was inspired by a single surviving photograph of his family, while his later style impressively incorporated biomorphic, abstract, and surrealist elements.

Jan 29–Apr 25, 2010

in post-colonial studies coined by British academic Paul Gilroy in 1993, applies to art, and in doing so confirms the centrality of artists of African descent to the formation of modernity. Topics explored include the early 20th-century Parisian avant-garde; the Harlem Renaissance; the cultural links between Africa and Brazil; contemporary and “postblack” art; and the way Paul Gilroy’s original concept of the Black Atlantic remains relevant to current discussions of migration and exploitation.

Young Michelangelo THE PATH TO T H E SI ST I N E A BIOGRAPHY ■

BY JOHN T. S P IK E

FROM THE VE N D OME P RE SS

A prodigiously informative and compelling account of the early years of Michelangelo— and the world he lived in

SPECIFICATIONS ■ 20 color and 40 black-and-white illustrations ■ 312 pages, 6 × 9" ■ Hardcover with jacket RIGHTS: NORTH AMERICA PUB MONTH: SEPTEMBER BIOGRAPHY

SELLING POINTS

■ A highly engaging read, this is the first comprehensive study of Michelangelo’s early life and art in more than a century ■ Not just for art historians, the book captures the essence of life in Renaissance Italy, casting the artist’s achievements against the major historical events of his time ■ John Spike is the highly praised author of books on Masaccio, Fra Angelico, and Caravaggio, and is slated for a five-city promotional tour

Truly

in a class of its own, Young Michelangelo is

the most definitive and eye-opening study of the artist’s early life to come along in a generation. In this compelling account, renowned art historian John Spike paints a vivid portrait of one of the world’s greatest artists and the places and people—Lorenzo de’ Medici, Leonardo, Machiavelli—that inspired and defined his early life and career. Spike’s masterful text probes the thinking, evolution, and desires of a young man whose awareness of his exceptional talent never wavered. Michelangelo’s complex personality is revealed through lively examinations of the Pietà, the David, and all other major works. Drawing on a rich background of Italian Renaissance politics and culture, Spike deftly navigates the fiery Florentine master’s struggle to surpass da Vinci’s artistic mastery, and his troubled relationships with Julius II and other key figures of the era. John T. Spike, critic, curator, and art historian, is the author of more than 20 significant books on Italian painting and

But their stigma as Jews in Nazi Germany and occupied Europe doomed them to exile or death in Hitler’s concentration camps. Here, after years of meticulous research, Melissa Müller (Anne Frank: The Biography) and Monika Tatzkow (Nazi Looted Art) present the tragic, compelling stories of 15 Jewish collectors, the dispersal of their extraordinary collections through forced sale and/or confiscation, and the ongoing efforts of their heirs to recover their inheritance. For every victory in the effort to return these works to their rightful heirs, there are daunting defeats and long court battles.

—Booklist, starred review

Frida Kahlo feels lost and lonely when she arrives in San Francisco with her husband, the famous artist Diego Rivera. It is the first time she has left her home in Mexico. And Frida wants to be a painter too. But as Frida begins to explore San Francisco on her own, she discovers more than the beauty, diversity, and exuberance of America. She finds the inspiration she needs to become one of the most celebrated artists of all time. Me, Frida is an exhilarating true story that encourages children to believe in themselves so they can make their own dreams soar. Amy Novesky is a children’s book editor and the author of Elephant Prince: The Story of Ganesh. She lives with her family just north of the city that inspired Frida Kahlo, San
