Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unite them, but their journey brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood, and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love. Mariscal’s art perfectly captures the steamy, vibrant atmosphere of 1940s Havana and transports the reader back to a time filled with music and romance. Based on the true story of Grammy Award–winning Cuban pianist and bandleader Bebo Valdes, this graphic novel is adapted from the animated feature film Chico & Rita, directed by Trueba and Mariscal. Fernando Trueba is a multiaward-winning writer, director, and producer, with a career spanning more than three decades in film, television, documentaries, theater, and music. Javier Mariscal is an artist and designer working in multiple fields, including illustration, graphics, comic books, paintings, animation, interiors, product design, furniture, and web design. He has a long-standing association with The New Yorker.

n 2005, director Christopher nolan redefined the Batman legend with Batman Begins, starring Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader.

A fresh, dynamic reboot of the franchise, Batman Begins explored the comic book hero’s origins and his evolution from billionaire Bruce Wayne to dark avenger who fights crime and corruption in gotham City. A 2008 sequel, The Dark Knight, took those compelling, characterdriven foundations and raised the stakes, pitting Batman against a deranged master criminal, the Joker, in an all-out war for gotham’s soul. now, the final film of nolan’s trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, is 2012’s most anticipated film release. Christopher Nolan’s Batman: The Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy tells the complete behind-the-scenes story of these three monumental films. Based on in-depth interviews with nolan and all of the films’ key cast and crew—including cowriters David S. goyer and Jonathan nolan, cinematographer Wally Pfister, and more—the book reveals the creative process behind the epic Dark Knight Trilogy, supported by lavish art and never-before-seen photography.

enyse Schmidt is one of the leading quilters of the 21st century. Known as a “modern” quilter, she actually draws much of her creative

vision from quilts of the past. In Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional

Each of the 20 traditional quilt designs she has reinterpreted here (among them are Irish Chain, Mariner’s Compass, and Orange Peel, to name a few) is introduced with a lively overview of the pattern’s history. Instructions are illustrated, templates are provided at full size on a pullout pattern sheet, and a complete techniques section is included at the back of the book. denyse Schmidt’s work has been featured in hundreds of publications, including the New York Times, TIME, People, and Martha Stewart Living. Her fabric and stationery lines are sold worldwide. She is the author of Denyse Schmidt Quilts and 30 Colorful Quilt and Patchwork Projects. Visit her website at dsquilts.com.

Mickey Mantle, and Yogi Berra, and current heroes like Derek Jeter, this unique package provides a fun and fresh approach to revisiting America’s favorite pastime with one of baseball’s most beloved teams. Since the Yankee’s humble beginnings in 1903 as the New York Highlanders to today’s star-studded team, the Bronx Bombers have won 27 World Championships—more titles than any other professional sports franchise in history. Yankee Greats will let Yankee and baseball fans alike revel in and reminisce over so many of the players that helped make baseball what it is today, and these legendary cards will bring back fond memories for both young and old collectors. Bob woods is a freelance writer who grew up in upstate New York during the 1950s and 1960s, loving the Yankees and collecting Topps baseball cards. His affection for the Yanks only increased when he moved to New York City after college and teamed up with Topps to create Topps Magazine. His ongoing association with Topps ultimately led to this labor of love.

Churchill has been the subject of any number of

9 780810 996434

books, but none of them have analyzed his lifestyle as a way to really understand the man. This book features a vivid and entertaining timeline of his public history, but also focuses on the more personal, nonwork aspects of his day-to-day life, covering topics such as autos, books, cigars, dining, fashion, home, libations, and pastimes. Churchill lived an extravagant life, but in reality did not have much money. His ability to live well beyond his means is a lesson that will intrigue many. Barry Singer has been the proprietor of Chartwell Booksellers in New York City, the only bookshop devoted to the works of Churchill, for more than 25 years. Singer is also a New York Times notable author and a regular contributor to the New York Times Arts & Leisure section, among many others.

Baldwin have forged an intense partnership, resulting in a unique and unmistakable style that combines pure design and Scandinavian-inspired techniques together with the Venetian cold-working process battuto. From tableware to sculptural and monumental installations, including blown and cut pieces created for such esteemed glass manufacturers as Venini, Rosenthal, and Steuben, the work of Guggisberg and Baldwin is truly captivating. Vases are decorated with geometric wheel–engraved patterns; glass spheres become mobiles or sparkling, brightly colored installations; and groups of oblong, almost organically shaped sculptures celebrate the incredible elasticity of glass. This new book presents the full scope of their work in lush illustrations.

School of Fine Arts in the early 1920s and was inspired by the works of Oskar Kokoschka and Edvard Munch. While his early paintings follow a straightforward Expressionist style, he truly came into his own after World War II, when his work became distinct and easily recognizable: The energy, contrasting primary colors, vivid outlines, and free brushwork combine to produce powerful, spellbinding images. In addition to stunning color reproductions of his work, this book includes essays on Gotsch’s art and life, illuminating the artist’s creative development and the cultural milieu and influences that inspired him.

Arabia’s most talked-about contemporary artists,

Abdulnasser Gharem (b. 1973), who is also a lieutenant

9 781861 543240

colonel in the Saudi Arabian army. Gharem is widely regarded as a pioneer in the Middle East for his firebrand intellectual courage and innovative use of materials, including rubber stamps, a collapsed bridge, and an invasive tree. His story takes readers to the very heart of what it is to stand against the tide, to innovate, and to do so fearlessly, and it reveals precisely what happens when a trickster positions himself both at the center of society and at its margins. If there is just one thing to say about a book on Abdulnasser Gharem, whose works are in the collections of LACMA and the V&A, it is that it is not destined to sit on a coffee table. Henry Hemming’s publications include Together: How Small Groups Achieve Big Things, Misadventure in the Middle East, In Search of the English Eccentric, Edge of Arabia: Contemporary Art from Saudi Arabia, and Offscreen: Four Young Artists in the Middle East.

the United Kingdom. Tracing his rise in Britain, the ways in which his work was exhibited and collected there during his lifetime, and the evolution of his critical reception, this book demonstrates that the British engagement with Picasso and his art has been much deeper and more varied than was previously understood. Picasso’s enormous impact on British modernism is examined through seven artists for whom he proved a particularly important stimulus: Duncan Grant, Wyndham Lewis, Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Graham Sutherland, and David Hockney. With more than 150 illustrations and essays by leading experts in the field, this book will appeal to anyone interested in Picasso’s long career or the development of modernism in Britain. James Beechey is an art historian and the author of Patrick Heron. Chris Stephens is curator of modern British art and head of displays at Tate Britain and the editor of Henry Moore and Francis Bacon.

flat, inexpressive manner, combining apparently mundane, everyday scenes with elements of the fantastic or erotic, created a disturbing, dreamlike atmosphere that is all his own. He remained faithful to Surrealism throughout his career and developed a vocabulary of symbols—floating rocks, bowler-hatted men carrying umbrellas, incongruous nudes, concealed or shrouded faces—that is among the most recognizable in modern painting. This book explores the full scope of Magritte’s work through the format of an A to Z, fully illustrated in color, with entries written by a range of international scholars. The entries under the letter A alone—Absence, Abstraction, Appropriation, Anonymity, Artifice, Automatism, and Automatic Writing—show how this approach reveals and explores the themes and motivations in this most enigmatic artist’s work.

or most people, the name Edvard Munch (1863–1944) is synonymous with his iconic painting

The Scream (1893). Yet beyond this justly famous masterpiece, the prolific Norwegian artist was also a major figure in the development of 20th-century painting. The themes of desolation and despair in his most popular work resonated with those coming to terms with modernity and acted as an influential precursor to the Expressionist movement in Europe. This concise and inviting book offers a perfect introduction to Munch’s work, including his etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, and set designs. It also details his tragic childhood, his travels in Europe during the emergence of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, and his circle of friends. Frank Høifødt is an art historian and Munch specialist, and a former lecturer and curator at the Munch Museum in Oslo.

he Ambassador has been described as

“probably the most daring and enterprising

trade magazine ever conceived.” With the motto

“Export or Die!,” the magazine was renowned for its innovative design and adventurous editorial approach in promoting British manufacturing in the post-WWII period. This book takes a detailed look at the background and impact of The Ambassador. Driven by the vision of founder Hans Juda and his wife, Elsbeth, who was responsible for much of the magazine’s striking photography, the magazine created ambitious photo shoots to showcasing the latest couture fashions, promoted fine art as an inspiration for design, and commissioned artists such as John Piper and Henry Moore for their covers. The Ambassador Magazine brings this trove of art, textiles, and fashion to a new generation. Christopher Breward is the head of research at the V&A. Claire Wilcox is the senior curator of fashion at the V&A.

with designers, clients, and occasions unique to Britain. Britain’s traditional social season of debutante parties, private balls, weddings, and charity events has long provided fashion designers with opportunities to create elaborate, tour-de-force eveningwear. In more recent years, the ballroom has been replaced by the red carpet. Though the context has changed, the ballgown remains a staple in many designers’ collections and continues to serve as an expression of status, protocol, and taste, while simultaneously embodying elements of drama and fantasy.

his fascinating, interactive autobiography presents Chuck Close’s story, his art, and a

discussion of the many processes he uses in the studio. The question-and-answer format is based on real kids’ inquiries about Close’s life and work,

and his answers to them. Close, who is wheelchair bound and paints with a brush strapped to his arm, discusses the severe dyslexia and face blindness he has struggled with since childhood. An engaging feature of the book is a mix-andmatch Chuck Close self-portrait section. The book also includes an illustrated chronology of Close’s life, a list of museums where his work can be seen, and an index. Chuck Close is one of the most recognized American artists of our time, known for his large-scale portraits of friends, fellow artists, and himself. He lives and works in New York City.
