o photographer had a more serious and deeply felt response

to the political and cultural impact of the 1960s and early 1970s than Richard

Avedon, whose iconic portraits of key figures of the era influenced the course of photography in the decades that followed. In four monumental photographic murals (reproduced in large gatefolds) and many related portraits, he portrayed Andy Warhol’s gender-bending Factory, with Viva and Candy Darling; Abbie Hoffman and the radical agitators of the Chicago Seven; Allen Ginsberg’s family, friends, and fellow artists; and the U.S. Mission Council in Saigon alongside searing portraits of victims of the Vietnam War. The photographs are accompanied by images of archival material, including Avedon’s diaries, correspondence, and contact prints. Major essays explore Avedon’s penetrating incursions into the history and spirit of these tumultuous years.

ee Alexander McQueen (1969–2010), whose design combined visionary aesthetics, emotional power, and

extraordinary craft, was known for staging provocative shows that were as much performances as venues to display his couture creations. Charged with energy, informed by history and culture,

and filled with fresh concepts, McQueen’s shows have become legends not only of fashion but also of art. Anne Deniau was the only photographer allowed backstage by McQueen for 13 years, beginning in September 1997 and ending with the final one in March 2010. She captured McQueen working with his close circle of collaborators—including designer Sarah Burton, milliner Philip Treacy, jewelry designer Shaun Leane, and model Kate Moss—to create his meticulously produced spectacles. Her book offers an inspiring homage, through the art of photography, to the work of a great artist. Anne Deniau is a photographer and filmmaker specializing in fashion and the performing arts: dance, opera, and theater. Her photographs have appeared in Vogue (UK and Italy), Vanity Fair, The Face, ID, Arena, and many other magazines. She lives in Paris. This is her fourth book.

O

. Winston Link photographed the Norfolk and Western, the last major steam railroad in the United

States, when it was converting its operations from steam to diesel in the 1950s. Link’s N&W project captured the industry at a moment of transition, before the triumph of the automobile and the airplane that ended an era of passenger rail service. His work also revealed a small-town way of life that was about to experience seismic shifts and, in many cases, vanish completely. Including a collection of more than 180 of Link’s most famous works and rare images that have never before been published, O. Winston Link: Life

Along the Line offers a moving account of the people and communities surrounding the last steam railroad. o. Winston link (1914–2001) photographed the Norfolk and Western from 1955 to 1960. His brilliant black-and-white prints established him as an important American photographer, and many of his images have become modern classics. tony reevy, administrator at the UNC Institute for the Environment and advisory editor of Railroad History, is an author who has published two books and more than 100 poems and articles. He lives in Durham, North Carolina.

uses his novel of lost love, The Museum of Innocence, as

a departure point to explore the city of his youth. In The Innocence of Objects, Pamuk’s catalog of this remarkable museum, he writes about things that matter deeply to him: the psychology of the collector, the proper role of the museum, the photography of old Istanbul (illustrated with Pamuk’s superb collection of haunting photographs and movie stills), and of course the customs and traditions of his beloved city. The book’s imagery is equally evocative, ranging from the ephemera of everyday life to the superb photographs of Turkish photographer Ara Güler. Combining compelling art and writing, The Innocence of Objects is an original work of art and literature. orhan Pamuk received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2006. His books have been translated into 60 languages. He divides his time between Istanbul and New York City, where he is the Robert Yik-Fong Tam Professor in the Humanities at Columbia University.

artin Luther King Jr.’s family comes together for the first time to share their reflections and

memories of the great civil rights leader. Included are

contributions from his sister (the only surviving member of his immediate family), his children, his in-laws, his nieces and nephews, and even his grandchildren, who, although they never met him, explain what his legacy means to them. Unlike the iconic persona normally associated with the man, the book presents a more personal, warm, and loving portrait: wrestling with his brother on the bed (despite their being in their thirties), sneaking naps during holiday meals, as well as playing games with his nieces and nephews. Alongside these tributes are never-before-published family photos of Dr. King, as well

Love, Loss, and What I Wore for a new generation

Brooke S.

Maude

German exchange student One night, while my friend Anne J and I waited outside the Windmill Deli for local boys to swing by and take us to a beach party, we spotted the most amazing-looking girl we’d ever seen in person. She had lanky blonde hair (which I loved, because mine was thick and brown and at that age—anything’s better than what you’ve got) and wore a mechanic’s jumpsuit, unzipped, with the sleeves tied around her waist and nothing but a man’s tank undershirt on top. She tucked the pant legs into highheel leather scrunch boots (even though it was summer). We were all so curious about her, and I asked my older sister if she thought that maybe this girl had kissed one of the boys we liked. She told me I was naïve and that no one her age (sixteen, maybe?) “just kisses.” *Be creative with how you wear something to make it your own. If this girl had simply zipped up her jumpsuit like the rest of us, she wouldn’t have been as special.

Janet W. Janet was one of my sister’s friends who had really good style. One outfit I remember was a diaphanous hippie top that had a subtle metallic thread running through it worn underneath a pair of slightly-too-large overalls. Janet was obsessed with David Bowie. She was nice enough to say that if I agreed that he was not only a great musician but also super handsome, then she would agree that Leif Garrett, my obsession, was hot. Done deal. Janet later joined a band that played in the East Village (even on school nights!) and got punkier and punkier over time. By graduation, she was wearing full-on thick, dark eyeliner that was flung way beyond the corners of her eyes, a leather biker jacket, skinny black (always ripped) jeans, combat boots, and chains. Rumor had it that she later went crazy after drinking liquid acid, although I’m pretty sure that’s not true since I just saw her on Facebook looking beautiful as ever. * Let your favorite music influence your style, even just a little bit.

wenty-eight-year-old Nao Brown, who’s hafu (half

Japanese, half English), is not well. She’s suffering

from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and fighting

violent urges to harm other people. But that’s not who she really wants to be. Nao has dreams. She wants to quiet her unruly mind; she wants to get her design and illustration career off the ground; and she wants to find love, perfect love. Nao’s life continues to seesaw. Her boyfriend dumps her; a toy deal falls through. But she also meets Gregory, an interesting washing-machine repairman, and Ray, an art teacher at the Buddhist Center. She begins to draw and meditate to ease her mind and open her heart—and in doing so comes to a big realization: Life isn’t black-andwhite after all . . . it’s much more like brown. Glyn Dillon’s comics illustrations have appeared in several works from Vertigo, including The Sandman. He has also worked as an artist, animator, and designer in film and television.

Though the storyline is epic, the storytelling is intimate, reflecting the real life of the book’s artist. Li Kunwu spent more than 30 years as a state artist for the Communist Party. He saw firsthand what was happening to his family, his neighbors, and his homeland during this extraordinary time. Working with Philippe Ôtié, the artist has created a memoir of self and state, a rich, very human account of a major historical moment with contemporary consequences. Mao said, “The masses are the real heroes,” but A Chinese Life shows those masses as real people. li Kunwu has had more than 30 of his comics published in the three decades he’s worked as a state artist.

rench painter Yves Klein (1928–1962) stands as one of the most exciting artists of the 20th century. A

founding member of the New Realism movement, he was

also a pioneer in performance art and installations, and a forerunner of body art, land art, and conceptual art. During his meteoric eight-year career, Klein expressed his vision through a wide range of media, including pure color (notably a deep, bright blue now known as Yves Klein Blue), architecture, sculpture, literature, and music. This book looks afresh at Klein’s works, and especially those that involve fire. Klein used fire to represent the mysterious and intangible elements of the world: He believed that an artist’s transfiguration of reality could change a viewer’s personal values, and his aim was to usher in an age of happy and fulfilled humankind. Here, images of his spectacular mur de feu, or “wall of fire,” along with monochromes, monogolds, drawings, letters, and articles, as well as pictures of him producing his works, are testament to Klein’s belief in the spiritual power of art. Frédéric prot is an associate professor at the University of Bordeaux.

hether at rest, work, or play, or hamming it up for the camera, Jack Russell terriers can’t help but be adorable.

Originally bred as hunting dogs in 19th-century England, these days they spend more time chasing photo ops than foxes—at least in the world of photographer Andy Hughes, who spends his days canine-

spotting across the UK and U.S. to document the intelligence, tenacity, and quirky personalities of these endearing animals. A somewhat embarrassing discovery—that Hughes had more photos of dogs than people—led him to celebrate his dog’s-eye view of life, culminating in a trip to the Sunshine State Jack Russell Terrier Club Trials in Florida to capture the paws célèbre in motion. The playful and spontaneous shots in I, Jack Russell are accompanied by Hughes’s happy musings about the hounds that have him spellbound. Contributions by two renowned dog experts set the photos in context. Andy Hughes is a photographer whose works center on the environment. John Bradshaw is the author of the bestseller Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You a Better Friend to Your Pet and founder of the Anthrozoology Institute at the University of Bristol. Alexandra Horowitz, author of Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know, teaches psychology at Barnard College, Columbia University, in New York City.

as the father of modern painting. This remarkable book, published to accompany an important traveling exhibition, explores the artist’s stylistic evolution in the context of his portraiture. The relationship between Manet’s portraits and his genre scenes is presented for the first time, illustrated by such masterpieces as The Luncheon (In the Studio) of 1868, and In the Conservatory (M. and Mme. Guillemet) of 1879. Leading authorities consider such topics as the influence of 17th-century Dutch painters, parallels with Renoir, and links with early photography.

The thick walls of southern Italy and Sicily provide protection against the mezzogiorno’s brutal summer heat, while the cozy wooden mountain chalets of Cortina d’Ampezzo preserve as much warmth as possible. As Nicoletta del Buono’s vibrant text makes clear, each approach to design is unique to its region, but nevertheless identifiable as trademark Italian. With over 300 color photographs of 30 intriguing houses, ranging from Tuscan villas to the characteristic cone-roofed houses of Trulli, At Home in Italy explores a rich interplay between distinctive style and tradition. Nicoletta del Buono is the editor of AD Italia. Massimo listri is Italy’s leading architecture and interiors photographer.

Exploring the relationship between her jewelry and fashion as well as the remarkable gems that inspired her work, this large-format book focuses on the pieces themselves, exquisitely photographed by master jewelry photographer David Behl. Some are as intricate as Chinese embroidery, others as ethereal as butterflies, and still others are jeweled reinterpretations of timeless works of music and art, from Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata and Puccini’s Turandot to Monet’s Water Lilies. Janet Zapata is a renowned historian of decorative arts and jewelry. Carol Woolton is jewelry editor of British Vogue. David Warren has headed Christie’s jewelry department since 1995. David Behl is one of the world’s leading photographers of fine jewels. His many books include The Art of Zadora, Seaman Schepps, and Yard.

These beautiful stools, desks, chairs, and bureaus have become the fastest-growing area of collecting within China as impassioned experts rediscover the glory of their artistic patrimony. The heart of Classical Chinese Furniture is the presentation of 52 masterpieces that provide an invaluable lesson on the Chinese approach to aesthetics, craftsmanship, architecture, and culture. Marcus Flacks has been one of the forces behind the rediscovery of Chinese furniture over the past 20 years. He has mounted a host of exhibitions to introduce this field to Western and Chinese collectors alike.

riginally published in 1966, Quant by Quant is the hugely entertaining story of fashion designer Mary Quant’s early career and life with her husband and business partner,

Alexander Plunket Greene. After opening the groundbreaking Bazaar boutique on London’s King’s Road in 1955, Quant soared to international fame with her brand of witty style that fitted perfectly with modern life. Just as her signature styles have become synonymous with the pop culture of the Swinging Sixties, her joyful, evocative autobiography captures the world in which she found inspiration—and which she ultimately helped to define and change. Mary Quant (b. 1934) studied at Goldsmiths College in London. Famed for popularizing the miniskirt, patterned stockings, and hot pants, she was awarded an OBE in 1966.
