hotographer and filmmaker Michael Grecco was in the thick of things, documenting the club scene in

places like Boston and New York as punk rock morphed into the post punk and new wave movements that

dominated from the late ’70s to the early ’90s. From Sex Pistols to Blondie, Talking Heads, Human Sexual Response, Elvis Costello, Joan Jett, The Ramones, and many others, Grecco captured in black and white and color the raw energy, sweat, and antics that characterized the alternative music of the time. In addition to concert photography, he shot album covers and promotional pieces that round out his impressively extensive photo collection. The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles has offered Grecco an exhibition of his photographs to coincide with publication. Michael Grecco is an award-winning commercial photographer and film director noted for his iconic celebrity portraits, innovative magazine covers, editorial images, and advertising spreads for NBC/Universal, GE, Pfizer, HBO, Kodak, ABC, IBM, Yahoo!, ESPN, WIRED, TIME, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Premier, and more.

nformed and energized by a lifetime of painting, drawing, and making images with cameras, David Hockney, in collaboration with

art critic Martin Gayford, explores how and why pictures have been made across the millennia. Juxtaposing a rich variety of images—a still from a Disney cartoon with a Japanese woodblock print by Hiroshige, a scene from an Eisenstein film with a Velazquez painting—the authors cross the normal boundaries between high culture and popular entertainment, and argue that film, photography, painting, and drawing are deeply interconnected.

more than what you drink from: these objects are to be reflected upon, to be touched and cherished. As mass manufacture became widespread in the post-war period, fascinating cross-cultural exchanges began to take place between Japan and the West. And in recent years, a new generation of designers has taken Japanese creativity into entirely new territory, reconceptualizing the very meaning of design. Showcasing over 80 designers, hundreds of objects, and contributions from both Japanese and Western designers inspired by Japan, this volume will remain the definitive work on the subject for many years to come. Naomi Pollock is an American architect who lives in Tokyo, where she writes about Japanese design. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including Dwell, Wallpaper*, and Architectural Record, for whom she is the special international correspondent.

rguably the most famous perfume in the world,

Chanel №5 continues to fascinate and claim

millions of devotees. Created in 1921 by Gabrielle Chanel, the perfume was one of the first to use synthetics. To

complement her pioneering fashion, Chanel wanted to give the modern woman “a perfume, but an artificial perfume . . . not rose or lily of the valley . . . a perfume that is compound,” offered in a distinctively pared-back glass bottle that would become an icon in its own right. Two oversized volumes explore the evolution of the perfume’s packaging, composition, manufacture, and marketing, with unprecedented access to the Chanel archives and those tasked with creating the fragrance today. Presented in a high-end package inspired by the original perfume box, Chanel №5 will delight lovers of luxury fragrance and fashion.

source carefully, make thoughtfully, think seasonally,

experiment fearlessly, and explore openly. Now, this seasonal approach encourages knitters to delve deeper into those concepts, applying them to everyday making through a series of essays, projects, and patterns that explore the life of a knitter throughout the year.

lice Walker made history in 1982 when she became the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for The Color Purple. Published in the Reagan era amid a

severe backlash to civil rights, the Jazz Age novel tells the story of racial and gender inequality

through the life of a 14-year-old girl from Georgia who is haunted by domestic and sexual violence. Prominent academic and activist Salamishah Tillet combines cultural criticism, history, and memoir to explore Walker’s epistolary novel and shows how it has influenced and been informed by the zeitgeist. The Color Purple received both praise and criticism upon publication, and the conversation it sparked around race and gender still continues today. It has been adapted for an Oscar-nominated film and a hit Broadway musical. Through archival research and interviews with Walker, Oprah Winfrey, and Quincy Jones (among others), Tillet studies Walker’s life and how themes of violence emerged in her earlier work. Reading The Color Purple at age 15 was a groundbreaking experience for Tillet. It continues to resonate with her—as a sexual violence survivor, as a teacher of the novel, and as an accomplished academic. Provocative and personal, In Search of The Color Purple is a bold work from an important public intellectual, and captures Alice Walker’s seminal role in rethinking sexuality, intersectional feminism, and racial and gender politics. Salamishah Tillet is a scholar, cultural critic, and activist. A professor at Rutgers University–Newark and previously a professor of English and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, she is a regular contributor to Elle and the New York Times. With her sister, she cofounded A Long Walk Home, a Chicago-based national nonprofit that uses art to empower young people to end violence against girls and women. She lives in New Jersey.

n 1951 in Sydney, Australia, a fourteen-year-old boy named James Harrison was near death when he received a transfusion of blood that saved his life. A few years later, and half a world away, a shy

young doctor at Columbia University realized he was more comfortable in the lab than in the examination room. Neither could have imagined how their paths would cross, or how they would change the world. In Good Blood, bestselling writer Julian Guthrie tells the gripping tale of the race to cure a horrible affliction known as Rh disease that stalked families and caused a mother’s immune system to attack her own unborn child. The story is anchored by two very different men on two continents: Dr. John

Gorman in New York, who would land on a brilliant yet contrarian idea, and the unassuming Australian whose almost magical blood—and his unyielding devotion to donating it—would save millions of lives. Good Blood takes us from Australia to America, from research laboratories to hospitals, and even into Sing Sing prison, where experimental blood trials were held. It is a tale of discovery and invention, the progress and pitfalls of medicine, and the everyday heroics that fundamentally changed the health of women and babies. Julian Guthrie is a journalist and author based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She spent 20 years at the San Francisco Chronicle, where her writing was nominated multiple times for the Pulitzer Prize. She is the author of four previous books, including the bestsellers The Billionaire and the Mechanic, and her most recent, How to Make a Spaceship.

n a memoir spanning decades of artistic risk-taking, Genesis P-Orridge, the inventor of “industrial music,” founder of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV, and world-renowned fine artist takes us

on a journey through creativity and destruction, pleasure and pain. Genesis’s unwillingness to be stuck—in one place, in one genre, or in one gender—will be an inspiration to the newest generation of trailblazers and nonconformists. It’s for an audience that cannot and will not be ignored. Nonbinary has far-reaching potential because of Genesis’s remarkable body of work. It is full of great stories about Genesis’s experiences with icons like William S. Burroughs and Ian Curtis.

Genesis P-Orridge is a founder of artistic collectives, the inventor of industrial music and a maker of experimental music in Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV, with more than 200 musical releases. Genesis was called a “wrecker of civilization” during a session of British Parliament, is the co-instigator of the Pandrogeny Project, and is a global icon in the avant-garde art scene. Their archives were recently acquired for the permanent collection of London’s Tate Modern. They live in New York City. Tim Mohr has cowritten bestselling memoirs by Gil Scott-Heron, Paul Stanley, and Duff McKagan, as well as a forthcoming memoir with Joe Walsh of the Eagles. His own book, Burning Down the Haus, a history of East German punk rock, earned praise from Rolling Stone, Billboard, NPR, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and others. He lives in New York City.

A

mong the extensive writing available about the history of ancient Greece, there is precious little about the city-state of Thebes. At one point the most powerful city in ancient Greece,

Thebes has been long overshadowed by its better-known rivals, Athens and Sparta. In Thebes: The Forgotten City of Ancient Greece, acclaimed classicist and historian Paul Cartledge brings the city vividly to life and argues that it is central to our understanding of the ancient Greeks’ achievements— whether politically or culturally—and thus to the wider politico-cultural traditions of western Europe, the Americas, and indeed the world. From its role as an ancient political power, to its destruction at the hands of Alexander the Great as punishment for a failed revolt, to its eventual restoration by Alexander’s successor, Cartledge deftly chronicles the rise and fall of the ancient city. He recounts the history with deep clarity and mastery for the subject and makes clear both the differences and the interconnections between the Thebes of myth and the Thebes of history. Written in clear prose and illustrated with images in two color inserts, Thebes is a gripping read for students of ancient history and those looking to experience the real city behind the myths of Cadmus, Hercules, and Oedipus. Paul Cartledge is the A. G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture Emeritus at the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of Clare College. He has written and edited more than 20 books, many of which have been translated into foreign languages, including The Spartans, Alexander the Great, and Thermopylae, all published by The Overlook Press/Abrams Press, and most recently Democracy: A Life. He is an honorary citizen of modern Sparta and holds the Gold Cross of the Order of Honor awarded by the president of Greece.

account gender, because it treats men as the default and women as atypical, women pay tremendous costs for this insidious bias, in time, in money, and often with their lives. Celebrated feminist advocate Caroline Criado Perez investigates this shocking root cause of gender inequality in Invisible Women.

Built on studies around the world, and written with sparkling intelligence, this groundbreaking exposé will change the way you look at the world.

She was the 2013 recipient of the Liberty Human Rights Campaigner of the Year Award and was named OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2015. She has a degree in English language and literature from the University of Oxford, and she studied behavioral and feminist economics at the London School of Economics.

n late-1980s rural Ohio, bright but mostly friendless Barry Nadler begins his freshman year of high school with the goal of going unnoticed as much as possible. But his world is upended by the arrival

of Gurbaksh, Gary for short, a Sikh teenager who moves to his small town and instantly befriends Barry and, in Gatsby-esque fashion, pulls him into a series of increasingly unlikely adventures. As their friendship deepens, Barry’s world begins to unravel, and his classmates and neighbors react to the presence of a family so different from theirs. Through darkly comic and bitingly intelligent asides and wry observations, Barry reveals how the seeds of xenophobia and racism find fertile soil in this insular community, and in an easy, graceless, unintentional slide, tragedy unfolds. How I Learned to Hate in Ohio shines an uncomfortable light on the roots of white middle-

American discontent and the beginnings of the current cultural war. It is at once bracingly funny, dark, and surprisingly moving, an undeniably resonant debut novel for our divided world. David Stuart MacLean is a winner of the PEN Emerging Writer Award for Nonfiction and author of the award-winning memoir The Answer to the Riddle Is Me. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Ploughshares, Guernica, and on This American Life. He has taught creative writing at the University of Chicago, Columbia College, and the School of the Art Institute; is co-founder of the Poison Pen Reading Series in Houston; and was a Fulbright Scholar to India. Raised in central Ohio, he now lives in Chicago. How I Learned to Hate in Ohio is his debut novel.

fter the sudden death of his nuclear physicist father and the arrest of his mother during the Stalinist purge of Jewish doctors, young Leon Rozental—intellectually precocious and

possessing a disarming candor—is hiding from the NKVD in the secret rooms of the House on the

Embankment, a large building in Moscow where many Soviet officials and apparatchiks live and work. One day after following a passageway, Leon meets Koba, an old man whose apartment is protected by several guards. Koba is a high-ranking Soviet officer with troubling insight into the thoughts and

machinations of Comrade Stalin. Through encounters between a naive boy and a paranoid tyrant, Robert Littell creates in Comrade Koba a nuanced portrayal of the Soviet dictator, showing his human side and his simultaneous total disregard for and ignorance of the suffering he inflicted on the Russian people. The charm and spontaneity of young Leon make him an irresistible character—and not unlike Holden Caulfield, whom he admits to identifying with—caught in the spider’s web of the story woven by this enigmatic old man. Robert Littell is the author of 19 highly acclaimed novels, many about the Cold War and the Soviet Union, including his masterwork, the New York Times bestseller The Company. An American born in Brooklyn, he now lives in France.

onday, Kierk wakes up. Once a rising star in neuroscience, Kierk Suren is now homeless, broken by his all-consuming quest to find a scientific theory of consciousness. But when he’s

offered a spot in a prestigious postdoctoral program, he decides to rejoin society and vows not to self-destruct again. Instead of focusing on his work, however, Kierk becomes obsessed with another project—investigating the sudden and suspicious death of a colleague. As his search for truth brings him closer to Carmen Green, another postdoc, their list of suspects grows, along with the sense that something sinister may be happening all around them. The Revelations, not unlike its main character, is ambitious and abrasive, challenging and

disarming. Bursting with ideas, ranging from Greek mythology to the dark realities of animal testing, to some of the biggest unanswered questions facing scientists today, The Revelations is written in muscular, hypnotic prose, and its cyclically dreamlike structure pushes the boundaries of literary fiction. Erik Hoel has crafted a stunning debut of rare power—an intense look at cutting-edge science, consciousness, and human connection. Erik Hoel received his PhD in neuroscience from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is a research assistant professor at Tufts University and was previously a postdoctoral researcher at Columbia University in the NeuroTechnology Center, and a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Hoel is a 2018 Forbes “30 under 30” for his neuroscientific research on consciousness and a Center for Fiction Emerging Writer Fellow. The Revelations is his debut novel. He lives in Massachusetts.

aking place over the course of 48 hours in 2024, This Little Light draws readers into a universe of born-again Christians and celebrity worship where abortion is once again illegal and both

religion and surveillance run amok. Heroine Rory Miller and her best friend, Fee, are on the run after a bomb explodes at their elite Christian private school in their triple-gated California community during their American Chastity Ball, where girls in white gowns pledge to their fathers that they will remain

virgins until marriage. As the girls struggle to survive while following their own attempted capture on social media and cable news—crowdsourced by Christian zealots and bounty hunters—Rory blogs their story in real time, determined to leave behind a record in their own words in case they don’t make it out alive. In This Little Light, bestselling author Lori Lansens weaves together the pressing issues of our time—women’s rights, income disparity, religion and politics, immigration—and diffuses them through the authentic voice of a 16-year-old navigating a frightening reality. The result is an intense, urgent, and enthralling read about an all-too-believable near future—and the world we already live in. Lori Lansens is a successful screenwriter and novelist whose books have been sold in more than 13 countries. She is the author of four previous novels, including the New York Times bestseller The Girls. Born and raised in Chatham, Ontario, she now lives in Santa Monica, California.

ala Garncarz, daughter of a rabbi and the youngest of 11 children, was 16 in 1940 when she volunteered to take her sister’s place in a Nazi work camp. Over the next fi ve years, she

endured seven camps and collected, at great risk to herself, a cache of more than 350 letters, postcards, photographs, and other documents sent to her and others during that time. Sala survived the war and moved to America, where, more than 50 years later, she and her family donated her remarkable collection of letters and documents to the New York Public Library, where it went on to earn wide attention. Through these letters that Sala managed to hide and keep safe, Letters to Sala tells the story of her experiences and those of others in the web of Nazi labor camps in occupied Europe, a less-documented and less-familiar aspect of the Holocaust. Adapted by award-winning playwright Arlene Hutton from the book Sala’s Gift by Ann Kirschner, Letters to Sala has been produced off-Broadway at The Barrow Group and with more than 100 productions. Arlene Hutton is best known as the author of the award-winning Nibroc Trilogy. Her plays have been produced at regional theaters and colleges around the country, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, for FringeNYC, and at theaters in New York City and abroad. She’s a member of Ensemble Studio Theatre and an alumna of New Dramatists. She lives in New York City.

The book offers insight into the minds of famous artists and provides an entry point for considering how integral music is to our own personal narratives. Mike Ayers has been an arts and entertainment journalist and editor for outlets such as the Wall Street Journal,

Rolling Stone, GQ, Vanity Fair, Esquire, Billboard, and many more. He is currently a senior editor at Money magazine, where he steers coverage of stories that examine the intersection of culture and money.

In a single-bit axe, the head consists of the bit, which bites into the wood, and the poll, a slab of steel opposite the bit that provides a counterweight for stability, and the eye, into which the helve is inserted. A good head is drop forged from a highcarbon steel, and the bit is then hardened and tempered. The head doesn’t have to be shiny and perfect—but the bit should always be sharp.

15. KERF SLOT

Often called the helve or haft, the best helves are made of straight-grained, knot-free American hickory (see page XX); they come in various shapes and sizes but always with some sort of knob at the end to maximize the grip. Some contemporary axes have plastic or fiberglass composite helves that have few redeeming qualities (see page XX). The helve should not feel too thick or too long in your hands. It should instill in you just as much confidence as the head.

Peter Buchanan-Smith founded Best Made Co. in 2009 because he loved making things with his hands and wanted to start a company that would not only celebrate the inherent beauty of timeless, utilitarian tools, but would also inspire people to get out from behind their screens and experience the natural world. The

From the basics and fundamentals of handling and owning an axe, to details on how to find the right axe, to informa-

obedient axe

per—it’s a sure way to end up learning how to re-helve an axe. Some axe bits are constructed with a steel collar that covers the area of the helve most susceptible to overstrike. Collars can make the helve hanging process more tedious, however, and don’t excuse poor form. If overstrike occurs, be sure to examine the helve for any long, longitudinal cracks that may foretell a catastrophic failure. The helve shoulder is durable and can bear a few mistakes, but can’t withstand overstrike forever. Striking too far to the toe is even worse, as the axe is suddenly cleared of any obstructions until it finds the ground or a boot. Find the ground, and you might face a few hours of filing and resharpening to take the chip out of your prized bit. Find the boot, and your day just got a whole lot different. When you chop into a piece of wood it’s impossible to anticipate every single outcome, every single time. That’s why you need to plan ahead, and map your next steps. If in doubt I will literally take slow practice swings, just to be 100 percent sure I know where my axe is going, and what might be in its way. You would be surprised what damage you can do if, in full swing, your axe gets hung up on a seemingly harmless little branch or vine. Think of the axe like a well-trained dog. An obedient dog is responsive to your inputs, or “commands,” while an unruly hound spells danger. Obedience requires patience and training, just as the axe requires care, maintenance, and practice. With practice you will build muscle memory, and chopping wood will feel as natural as riding a bike or skipping rope. The more time spent swinging the axe, methodically practicing technique, and keeping it clean and sharp, the less likely it is to come back and bite you.

THE SWING

Master accuracy before speed and force. You don’t need to swing as hard as you think. And always remember a sharp axe is the most accurate axe.

Keep the path of your axe well clear of overhanging branches and obstuctions. Your top hand is loose and will glide the length of the shaft. Your bottom hand is the anchor of your swing. Don’t lock your wrists. The snap of the wrists accelerates the moving axe and gives it that necessary whip.

From the minute you raise your axe keep your eyes fixed on the target. As you lower the axe imagine cutting through the target, not just into it.

Keep your shoulders square and level.

BUILD MUSCLE MEMORY The key to becoming an effective chopper is practice and repetition. Swinging the oldest tool known to humankind is in your DNA. Tap into that ancient muscle memory!

PLAN AHEAD Do a mental walk-through of your swing and its intended path. Trace the actual path of the axe if you need to. Every swing should land where you intend it, but know that the chances of that happening are not guranteed.

Keep your knees slightly bent. Keep a wide and stable stance. Know what’s under foot.

Wear the right boots.

ALSO AVAIL AB LE

Keep your swing straight, and the axe in this channel on the downward stroke.

Peter Buchanan-Smith built a successful career as a

Best Made worked closely with Council Tools, a fourth-generation forge in North Carolina, to produce one of the first premium “modern-era” American felling axes. At the time, our axe was the most expensive you could buy, on par with the incredible specimens that had already been coming out of Sweden. In the early days, some of our customers would reach out to tell us how much they wanted a Best Made axe, but quietly asserted they couldn’t quite justify the expense. They’d reminisce about the axes of their childhoods, invariably the ones an ancestor had swung. Little did they know there was a lot of life left in those axes; there was no reason why they couldn’t be brought back into service and be as good (or better) than any new axe on the market. And so that is how Best Made got into the axe restoration business. We were obviously not the first to restore an axe, but to my knowledge Best Made was the first retail brand to offer axe-restoration classes. Early pioneers of “restoration-education,” we hosted our first class in our 180-square-foot (55-square-m) workshop in Lower Manhattan, and were soon on the road, heading out across the United States and to parts of Europe to teach folks how to breathe life into derelict but undeniably vital and beloved axes. An axe maker once told me that a million (new) axes

He’s covered in fleas. He doesn’t know which fork to use. He has never been anywhere so grand!

Indeed, when he arrives, Bobo feels terribly out of place. And trouble is following him wherever he turns! But maybe . . . he’s not the only one who’d like to let loose? For any kids who have tried their hardest to behave at a grown-up gathering, Bobo the boar is just the itchy, clumsy, endearing hero they’ve been waiting for.

uardians of Liberty explores the essential and basic American ideal of freedom of the press.

Allowing the American press to publish—even if what they’re reporting is contentious—

without previous censure or interference by the federal government was so important to the

Founding Fathers that they placed a guarantee in the First Amendment to the Constitution. Citing numerous examples from America’s past, from the American Revolution to the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement to Obama’s and Trump’s presidencies, Linda Barrett Osborne shows how freedom of the press has played an essential role in the growth of this nation, allowing democracy to

efore he led the first expedition to circumnavigate the Earth, Ferdinand Magellan (1480–1521) was a Portuguese sailor known for his incredible navigation skills. After years of sailing, he

was chosen to lead a crew to circle the globe—a trip that no other ship had ever completed. Though

Magellan died in combat in the Philippines before he could finish the voyage, his ship went on to complete the first circumnavigation of the world, and he is still known as one of the greatest explorers. However, as historians today note, many of the places that Magellan “discovered” already had people living there, and his fame is rooted in colonialism.

run it with her eyes closed. She’d never let anyone—whether it be a drunkard or a captain of the

queen’s guard—take advantage of her. But when her guardian dies, she might lose it all: the bar, her home, her purpose in life.

Desperate, Caleb uses an online forum to capture Evie’s interest—and it goes a little too well.

LETTER FROM THE EDITORS

Welcome to our first season of books, from the team at Magic Cat. We are a new independent children’s publishing company, based in London and founded by award-winning publishers Rachel Williams and Jenny Broom. As bookmakers, we make family-friendly non-fiction and gift books, for children from pre-school through middle grade, that speak to our passion for pioneering design and beautiful illustration. As moms, we believe that books are the best way to put inspiring ideas in the hands and hearts of our children, and that reading with your child is the best way to help them develop intellectually, socially, and emotionally. Some of our books explain and explore the world around you; others help you escape altogether and fire your imagination...in both cases, we know that the stories we are told in childhood shape the people we grow up to be. Thank you for making us part of that journey. and

Rachel Williams and Jenny Broom have worked together for nearly 10 years. During this time, the pair have pioneered a renaissance in children’s nonfiction and spawned industry-wide trends for sophisticated illustration styles and innovative formats. Founding Big Picture Press in 2012 (an imprint of Candlewick Press), they launched the imprint with the game-changing children’s title Maps, followed by Animalium and Atlas of Adventures in 2013. Joining Quarto in the same year to found another new children’s imprint, the pair launched Wide Eyed Editions in the US in 2015 with the best-selling title The 50 States before taking the reins of Frances Lincoln Children’s Books. Several more successes followed, including the record-breaking biography series Little People Big Dreams, as well as stand-alone picture book hits such as the award-winning The Bear and the Piano, Grandad Mandela, and John Lennon’s Imagine. Now embarking on a new chapter, the pair have founded independent publishing house Magic Cat, which will build on previous successes and set new boundaries for children’s books with their groundbreaking concepts and inimitable design flair.

Kenya to the indulgent resorts of South Africa and the inspired eco-designed camps of Rwanda.

Drawing on the early 20th-century tradition of the safari, they have reinvigorated the experience with access to parts of Africa previously out of bounds, notably Rwanda, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. These new camps and lodges reinvent the safari and represent a fresh approach to wildlife conservation involving local populations.

hinoiserie is a term for Western art and design inspired by a largely invented vision of China.

Marco Polo’s sensational account of his visit to the exotic East in the 13th century sparked a fascination with China that reached a fever pitch in the 18th century and continues to this day. Art historian and artist Aldous Bertram has long been captivated by chinoiserie. Dragons &

Pagodas is organized by theme, including porcelain, color and pattern, flora, fauna, and architecture. Each chapter is bursting with images ranging from grand European summer palaces and whimsical pagoda follies to charming details of screens, porcelain figurines, and ornate plasterwork. Complete with Bertram’s own chinoiserie-inspired watercolors and collages, Dragons & Pagodas is an irresistible confection and an example

A Year in Provence, the sun-drenched southern French

region continues to excite home decorators with its combination of rustic charm, elegant details, and historical influences.

Provence Style showcases the best of the region, with Shauna Varvel’s quintessential 18th-century Rhône valley farmhouse– Le Mas des Poiriers–as its focus. Named for the working pear orchard on the grounds, the property was re-imagined by noted local architect Alexandre Lafourcade, who transformed a rough structure into a luxurious expression of the Provençal aesthetic, with gardens designed by the architect’s mother, renowned landscaper Dominique Lafourcade. This model of Provençal style is the starting point for exploring the region, transporting readers on a captivating stylistic journey.

backdrop of 40 years of transformation and conflict

across the Arabian Gulf and Islamic world. A doctorturned-artist, Ahmed Mater has continually confronted his traditional context. Here, he explores Arab and Islamic society in an era of globalization and social upheaval to uncover the unofficial histories that have shaped the present. Mapping his life and work on a historical timeline, the book offers an unprecedented insight into changes forged by and in the Kingdom, and its significance in world religion, culture, and geopolitics. Celebrating 20 years of Mater’s art-making, organizing, and activism, this book is not only a mid-career survey of an essential artist, it is an urgent prognosis of a society in dramatic transition. Born in 1979, when Islamic revolution reconfigured the region, and trained as a community doctor on the Saudi/Yemeni border, Ahmed Mater has risen to become one of the most significant Arab artists of the 21st century.

Trump Steaks and the Ego sign from the Ego Lounge at the Taj Mahal. The scope of the project is as vast as Donald Trump’s reach has been, showing that long before he became president, Donald Trump wrapped himself around America and called it his. Born on August 15, 1950, in New York, the American artist Andres Serrano first came to public attention with his controversial work Piss Christ (1987), depicting a crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine. Other notorious projects include photographs of recently deceased bodies, and a series of portraits of Ku Klux Klan members. In the late ’80s and early ’90s his works were a flashpoint in what became known as the “culture wars,” inspiring a national debate on freedom of expression and the public funding of controversial art in America.

ments remain poorly known and largely misunderstood

outside the country. Epic Iran tells the story of Iran from preIslamic through modern times and provides an opportunity to see pieces from key museum and private collections. This book combines the ancient and Islamic periods and continues the narrative into the contemporary world. It shows how an Iranian identity formed in the first millennium BC has survived until today, expressed in the Persian language and in religious affiliations. Lavishly illustrated, some 250 images showcase pieces including goldwork, ceramics, glass, illustrated manuscripts, textiles, carpets, oil paintings, drawings, and photographs. Alongside the historical sweep are examples from contemporary artists and makers, demonstrating the rich antecedents still influencing modern-day practitioners. John Curtis is the chief executive officer of the Iran Heritage Foundation and former keeper of the Middle East Department at the British Museum. Tim Stanley is a senior curator in the Asian Department at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Ina Sarikhani Sandmann is the co-founder and Director of The Sarikhani Collection.

ayoi Kusama is arguably Japan’s most famous living artist. Her originality, innovation, and powerful desire to communicate have

propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades. During this time, Kusama has explored painting, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance and installation, and product design. From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York and

was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city. Returning to Japan in her 40s, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition she has recently achieved. In her ninth decade her imagination remains richly creative and she continues to extend the range of her practice. Having accompanied the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work to be staged in the UK, this lavishly illustrated book features an introductory essay by Frances Morris, director of Tate Modern, as well as four other substantial essays by leading international critics. Topics

E XHIB ITION SCHE DULE Tate Modern, June 17–Sept 13, 2020 agdalena Abakanowicz (1930–2017) was a Polish sculptor and fiber artist, most notable for her use

of textiles as a sculptural medium. In the 1960s and ’70s she wove sisal in intense colors to create towering, hanging pieces that radically expanded the field of sculpture

and installation art and catapulted the international fiber art movement. Known as Abakans, these “organic environments” carried many meanings and were often large in size, containing entanglements of ropes or dividing spaces. They were spaces to contemplate, to immerse oneself, to experience. Lavishly illustrated, this beautiful book explores the unique nature of these works and their impact as environmental sculpture. Considering the relationships between the Abakans and their forest-like atmosphere,

and other key works, it reveals the artist’s broad interest in natural phenomena and folk-art traditions from different cultural backgrounds, and the mastery and determination of a woman artist who, despite the restrictions of living in Poland under an oppressive communist regime, established a career as an international artist.

As their Socratic dialogue continues, Cédric notices striking parallels between the suffocating commercialism of mid-19th-century America and the unsustainable, alienating, tech-driven consumerism of today. Both societies are shaped by a single priority—economic growth—that squanders the earth’s natural resources and separates us from nature. Inspired by Thoreau’s return to nature, Cédric begins dream-

Buñuel: the moment when he doubted surrealism and contemplated

embracing a more social type of cinema. At this crucial turning point in his career, he wanted to change the world by showing the hidden heart of reality. Buñuel was deeply affected by the harshness of Las Hurdes and the extreme misery of the people who live in this remote region, so with his friend, the movie producer Ramón Acín, he began work on the pseudo-documentary Land Without Bread. But in the mind of the great surrealist, reality inevitably clashed

mil Zátopek is arguably the greatest Olympic champion of all time. The Czech runner’s three gold medals at the 1952 Helsinki

Summer Olympics, for the 5,000 meter, 10,000 meter, and marathon, is an achievement that has never been matched. His success as a runner made him a national hero, but as a public figure, outspoken and unafraid to take a stand, he was equally impressive. Even before the Helsinki Games, Zátopek had scored a remarkable victory, successfully pressuring the communist regime to allow his colleague Stanislav Jungwirth, who until then had been excluded on political grounds, to compete. In Zátopek, Jan Novák and Jaromír 99 trace the extraordinary life and times of the great Olympian, from his first meeting with Dana, the love of his life, to the victories that would ensure his lasting legacy.

complicated personal life later cast a shadow over Freud’s professional career—and came close to destroying his reputation.
