Quadrille Publishing Ltd

Twenty years on It was in 1994 that Quadrille Publishing announced itself to the world, a team of four with a dream: the creation of a small list of books that would innovate in every way, editorial, design, production and sales, stay in print for many years, and be sold the world over. Two whole (long) decades later, how the world has changed, yet our goal remains. Our new list reflects these aims. Our craft list is heralded by our second The Great British Sewing Bee TV tie-in book, Sew Your Own Wardrobe, packed with desirable projects and packaged with five full-size pattern sheets - a first for a TV tie-in. Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes, herself a contestant in the first The Great British Sewing Bee, is a brilliant introduction to the world of sewing, full of glorious must-have garments and already attracting wide interest. The Cath Kidston Sewing Book is a dazzling follow up to the most successful craft book ever in the UK, Sew!, which has so far sold 360,000 copies. Our cookery titles are no less exciting. Starting the year with Antonio Carluccio’s outstanding new volume, Pasta, this is the book on the subject for years to come. We have two extraordinary – and very different - books on cake decorating, Peggy Porschen’s Cakes in Bloom and Suzi Witt’s Pretty Witty Cakes. Cabana is a timely and visually exciting celebration of Brasilian food and lifestyle, while Tom Hunt’s veg-centric The Natural Cook is a superb cookbook for the way we eat now. Salad Love is the most inventive book on the subject with literally hundreds of colourful, tasty and easy-to-prepare salads, while 50 Lolly Recipes provides the most delectable ice lollies imaginable. Later in the year, we will publish Michel Roux’s exquisite The Essence of French Cooking and Trine Hahnemann’s impressive Scandinavian Baking –the definitive book on the subject.

Our healthy eating titles include the next book from the best-selling Medicinal Chef, Dale Pinnock, entitled Healthy Every Day, and Cut the Carbs, an enticing new approach for everyone wanting more energy. In association with Shine and One Born Every Minute, we are launching two ground-breaking books in the pregnancy arena: Expecting a Baby? and Expecting Twins? This is the first time such books have been linked to television, and we anticipate stupendous sales. And this is by no means all… there are many further tempting titles in the pages which follow. It remains for me to thank booksellers, distributors and co-publishers the world over who have supported our first 33,000,000+ books sold, and to encourage you all to buy many more!

Pasta The essential new collection from the master of Italian cookery Antonio Carluccio photography by Laura Edwards


This is the ultimate book on pasta, imagined, created and cooked by the Godfather of Italian cookery. Antonio Carluccio’s Pasta combines his inimitable knowledge with his expert taste buds to provide 100 original pasta recipes in this definitive book. Some are Antonio’s interpretations of classic and regional dishes but most are entirely new. He begins with an instructional masterclass, teaching the reader everything they will need to know about pasta – how to cook it and how to marry it with the perfect sauce – with accompanying step-by-step photography should you choose to make your own. Over 100 of his most innovative and irresistible pasta recipes follow, covering: soups; vegetable, meat and fish main courses; salads and even desserts; these vary from the traditional Tagliatelle fresche con ragù alla Bolognese (with real Bolognese sauce) to the truly modern Sedani con vodka e salmone affumicato (with vodka and smoked salmon). With ‘alternative’ options provided for most of the recipes, Antonio Carluccio’s Pasta covers everything any cook will need in order to create the perfect bowl of pasta.

Antonio Carluccio Antonio Carluccio is recognised as Italy’s greatest food ambassador. Having moved to London in 1975, he set up and ran the Neal Street Restaurant and spent 10 years developing the hugely successful Carluccio’s Caffès. In 1998 he was presented the Commendatore award for his lifetime’s service to the Italian food industry, and in 2007 he received an O.B.E. He has made numerous television programmes and written sixteen bestselling books for Quadrille.

With more than 100 recipes, Cabana: The Cookbook is perfect for relaxed outdoor cooking and eating with family and friends.

Lizzy Barber joined them, Chef Director David Rood set to work creating and testing recipes, and Cabana was born.

Zédel A. A. Gill Think ‘grand café’ and the image that immediately springs to mind is a decadent, smoke-filled place populated by coffee-drinking thinkers, writers and artists in 1930s Europe. While the outside world trudged through a depression, inside intellectual revolutions were incited and dreams were made. Along with the brasserie, the grand café combines an opulent setting exclusively for the everyman. In both cases, their definitions are elusive, but step inside an example and you know immediately where you are. Zédel is such a place. Housed in a 1915 hotel off London’s Piccadilly Circus, it was restored to its former grandeur and re-opened in 2012 with all the charm and distinction of Art Deco Paris. In this book, a homage to Zédel’s brasserie, cocktail bar, cabaret and café, A. A. Gill celebrates the origins of the grand café as well as the character of Zédel, and 40 iconic brasserie recipes are included. Period photography and artwork help to capture the mood of this remarkable and fascinating venue.

A. A. Gill A. A. Gill was born in Edinburgh. He is the television and restaurant critic for The Sunday Times and is a contributing editor to GQ, Vanity Fair and Australian Gourmet Traveller magazines. He is the author of several books, including Breakfast at The Wolseley (2008).

Tamasin Day-Lewis

Tamasin’s philosophy is all about making the most of everything she cooks and using each ingredient in its season. If you’re in need of some new supper ideas, try the blue cheese, red onion, potato and walnut pie, or a comforting salmon and scallop chowder, smoky with bacon and flecked with tarragon. Resist, if you can, a delectable, gooey bitter chocolate and salted caramel brownie cake. You will find plenty of effortless dishes in this book that are utterly, totally, completely irresistible. ‘Tamasin is a magpie collector of recipes . . . giving each one her own twist. Often her variations are so perfect you wonder why no one has done it that way before. Best of all, these recipes are not difficult’ BBC Good Food


For the clever cook in the cost-conscious kitchen photography by James Merrell Supper for a Song is about cooking (and shopping for) the best while spending less. This, Tamasin Day-Lewis believes, is the most exciting and creative way to cook. As well as many cost-conscious main dishes and a wonderfully indulgent baking chapter, she offers original ways to extend the Sunday roast and transform leftovers. There’s also advice on keeping a storecupboard well stocked for quick meals, and making the most of seasonal fruit and vegetable gluts. Supper for a Song offers readers thrifty ways to cook without ever feeling deprived or short-changed. ‘Tamasin Day-Lewis’s books are always a delicious treat and this latest is no exception’ Red

Scandinavian Christmas Trine Hahnemann

The Scandinavian Cookbook Trine Hahnemann

photography by Lars Ranek

photography by Lars Ranek

With 70 festive recipes, Trine Hahnemann shows how to make delicious dishes to celebrate Christmas the Scandinavian way, with great comfort food eaten by cosy candlelight. Brunches, cocktail and tea parties, lunches and dinners are celebrated with a mixture of traditional goodies and delicious modern recipes. Duck and pork rule on Christmas Eve, fish, ham and seasonal vegetables on Christmas Day. Sweets, puddings and other treats abound – all washed down with glühwein and fruity cocktails.

Scandinavia may be small, but with its dramatically changing seasons and strong agricultural and fishing traditions, it offers much in terms of food and lifestyle and Lars Ranek’s evocative photographs reflect a year’s cycle, comprising lifestyle and festivals as well as seasonal dishes. Of course, fish features large – with recipes for smoked and marinated salmon and gravad lax, Skagen fish soup and Limfjords mussels, as well as a variety of Smørrebrød open sandwiches, and rice pudding with warm cherry sauce, among others.

Sophie Grigson creates accessible and contemporary recipes to tantalise and spice up our everyday cooking, as well as retracing the lineage and journeys that these ancient wonders of the food world undertook to reach our modern palettes.

Simple French Cooking for English Homes X. Marcel Boulestin

The Gentle Art of Cookery Mrs C. F. Leyel and Miss Olga Hartley

Described as ‘the most subtle, imaginative, and liberating food writer of his day’, Xavier Marcel Boulestin, first published in 1923 and an immediate success, popularised French cuisine in the English-speaking world. This book dispels the myth that French cooking is complicated by offering over 300 delicious, simple recipes – including traditional favourites such as Entrecôte bordelaise and Galette au chocolat. ‘Includes recipes for everything . . . Bon appétit’ Stella


Part of a striking upheaval in attitudes to cooking between the wars, The Gentle Art of Cookery was published in 1921, inspiring its readers with its attention to detail and daring recipe selection. With chapters entitled Dishes from the Arabian Nights, The Alchemist’s Cupboard and Flower Recipes, this book can’t help but capture the reader’s imagination. With its intensely modern focus on flowers and vegetables, and its revival of old tastes and suggestions of new ones, this book points towards modern molecular gastronomy and demonstrates how elegant and innovative British food can be. ‘Reveals British food in the Twenties [to be] aromatic and well-travelled’ The Daily Telegraph

Love at First Stitch Demystifying dressmaking Tilly Walnes photography by Ellie Smith


Love at First Stitch gives you all the know-how you need to start making the dresses of your dreams. Written for novice stitchers by the author of the popular sewing blog Tilly and the Buttons, Tilly Walnes demystifies dressmaking for the generations who have never previously learnt to sew. This book presents the core sewing basics in an informal style, with Tilly’s friendly and encouraging voice cheerleading the reader on throughout. Instead of overwhelming the novice dressmaker with theory, this book is about learning by doing. Starting with the simplest Brigitte Scarf and working through to the desirable Lilou Dress, each chapter presents practical tips and inspiration to guide you through creating a made-to-measure garment from one of the seven versatile and adaptable patterns included with the book, which can then be personalised to suit your individual style. Peppered throughout the book are Tilly’s top sewing tips, including everything from what to look out for when buying – or borrowing – your first sewing machine, through how to behave in a fabric shop to appear like an expert, to techniques for pressing perfection.

Tilly Walnes On a whim and feeling the urge to fill a creative void, Tilly Walnes signed up for a three-day dressmaking course. It was love at first stitch. Her new-found joy in sewing her own clothes – but lack of friends with an interest in sewing – lead Tilly to start her blog, Tilly and the Buttons, so that she could share her experiences and swap tips with other would-be dressmakers. Within three years of first threading a needle Tilly has the most popular sewing blog in the UK and appeared as a contestant in the first series of The Great British Sewing Bee, the only contestant to design and draft her own garment designs. Between teaching dressmaking classes at sewing schools in both London and Birmingham, Tilly is developing her own range of dressmaking patterns.

Simple Colour Knitting A complete how to knit with colour workshop Erika Knight photography by Yuki Siguira

Each of the 20 projects in this book teaches you a new colour-knitting technique – from working motifs in intarsia in a graphic Missoni-inspired throw to creating Fair Isle patterns through stranding and weaving in the two-colour snood scarf – and, at the same time, consolidate and build upon those colour skills already learnt with the preceding projects. In addition, Erika dispenses her designer tips on putting different shades together, whether they are primary colours or neutral shades, monochrome schemes or punchy accent hues. She puts this basic knowledge into practical terms that every knitter will understand and relate to. Simple Colour Knitting contains an introductory chapter of basic techniques which is followed by a Pattern Library that provides a handy gallery of Erika’s favourite colour effects and motifs. The core of the book is the 20 original designs, from cushions and throws to hats and scarves, that provide the perfect vehicles for practising your colourwork, whether that is random striping, tonal phasing, texture stitches or pictoral motifs.

Tricia Guild understands the powerful emotional effect of colour, and is aware that colour is never constant; rather it is always shifting subtly with the play of light on different surfaces, but an understanding of colour encompasses more than just its use on walls and fabric. The rooms shown are meant for living in; they feature people, objects and ephemera whose movement and incidental colour within a backdrop bring the subject alive. The book is divided into eight chapters based around groups of colour, packed with inspirational photographs taken in a modern mews house, a period town house, two lofts and Tricia’s own homes in Tuscany and London.

How to live in an eco-friendly way without compromising on style

Scandinavian Modern Home traces the development of this most influential and enduring design movement of the 20th century, from the late 1920s to its spread throughout Europe and the USA. It reveals the movement’s key design trademarks – its approachability, the use of natural materials and organic forms, clean lines, practicality and comfort. Combining a collector’s guide to the classic products, designers and manufacturers, with advice on how to put the look together using new or vintage pieces, this elegant yet informal design movement is shown here at its best and most liveable.

How do we reduce the environmental impact of our homes without compromising our sense of style? In this design-led yet practical guide, Oliver Heath shows you the way. Based around the three elements of Technology, Nature and Vintage, Urban Eco Chic promotes a philosophy that combines the use of pioneering energy-efficient technologies, sustainable natural materials, and recycled or recyclable products, such as vintage furniture and accessories. The result is a contemporary style that is ethical, eco-conscious and yet as individual as each homeowner.

25 Dresses From the collection of WilliamVintage William Banks-Blaney


Through his selection and description of 25 iconic vintage dresses, William Banks-Blaney tells the history of 20th and early 21st century fashion, the designers who created the dresses and the women who wore them. Each dress is looked at in forensic detail for its design and construction, its cut and embellishments, in order to evaluate the artistry of the individual couturier. The inspiration behind each dress is considered – whether that be Classic statuary, Secessionist architecture or fetish wear – as well as its legacy, thus determining each dress’s place within fashion history. William spends his life sourcing vintage couture, unpicking the history of each piece – how they were made, who wore them and where they fit within the story of fashion. Accompanied by exquisite photography of what are arguably the finest examples of each of these landmark designers, and bolstered by fashion plates contemporary to the selected pieces, 25 Dresses is the distillation of the knowledge and skill that William employs every day when fitting the world’s most beautiful dresses to today’s women. Part fashion history, part social history, part style guide and part field guide to buying vintage, William reveals many of the secrets behind his business as well as his passion for fashion.

William Banks-Blaney WilliamVintage was founded in 2009 by William Banks-Blaney, an interior designer who always loved vintage clothing but felt there was a gap in the market for an edited, exacting source of the world’s best vintage clothing and haute couture. Christened ‘The Vintage King’ by Vogue, the ascent of WilliamVintage has proved his instincts right. William has become the voice of vintage within the fashion industry; he has spoken at the Vogue Festival, lectured at the V&A Museum, been interviewed by CNBC, appeared in numerous episodes of The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo, and will be appearing on This Old Thing in 2014. Recently William was announced by British Vogue as the national Fashion Patron of Oxfam, the world’s largest charity. Clients of WilliamVintage include Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs, Lana Del Rey, Rihanna, Gillian Anderson, Tilda Swinton and Eva Green alongside a growing number of women who realise that relevant, fine vintage clothing should be a part of their wardrobe and not the dressing up box.

All are revealed here in iconic Vogue images.

Vogue On Coco Chanel

Vogue On Christian Dior

Bronwyn Cosgrave

Charlotte Sinclair

The most influential female designer of the 20th century, Coco Chanel pioneered relaxed elegance for the modern woman, reinventing couture with new materials and outfits that were deceptively simple yet still incomparably chic. The pages of Vogue documented her iconic designs and glamorous life and her enduring influence, with her legendary, much-imitated ‘little black dress’, the Chanel Suit, and her quilted black handbag, as popular today as when they first appeared.

In 1947, Dior’s New Look transformed the way women dressed. Recounting Dior’s search for the perfect line, how his vision of women’s ideal silhouette developed and altered, as well as examining how he embraced the dual aspects of creativity and commerce – exploiting the press and the possibilities of merchandising – this book offers a unique insight into Dior’s dramatic impact on the landscape of Forties and Fifties fashion, his personal legacy and the continuing success of the House of Dior.

Bronwyn Cosgrave Bronwyn Cosgrave is the author of three critically acclaimed fashion history books and the former features editor of British Vogue, and a regular contributor to the international editions of Vogue.

Vogue On Elsa Schiaparelli

Chloe Fox

Judith Watt

From the controversy of his early shows to the elegiac perfection of his last, Alexander McQueen was British fashion’s most significant figure. This book outlines his stellar career and worldwide influence, showing how his visionary brilliance and iconoclastic designs, featuring immaculate tailoring, slashed material and sculpted outlines, achieved his own declared ambition: ‘When I’m dead and gone, people will know that the 21st century was started by Alexander McQueen.’

Vogue presented Schiaparelli as ‘a genius, madder and more original’ than her contemporaries, championing her designs from 1927’s revolutionary Bow Knot sweater to the Surrealist Tear Dress and Shoe Hat of the late 1930s, and showing her as a true original who collaborated with artists such as Salvador Dalí, made trompe l’oeil images, dresses with skeletal forms, perfume bottles shaped like Mae West’s torso and pioneered the use of man-made fabrics – a daring and visionary designer.

A Short Book About Drawing Andrew Marr Like millions of others, Andrew Marr draws. He hasn’t had lessons, yet since childhood, he has been at his happiest with a pencil or brush in his hand. One way or another he draws most days. But why does he do it? Does it have a point? And in what way does this activity of his relate to what we think of as ‘art’? A Short Book about Drawing explores the subject of drawing and painting through Andrew’s own experience. He considers the mechanics of the drawing process – the act of making and its importance for a happy life – along with the ways in which good art can make us think harder and see the world differently. He looks at the historical differences between drawing and fine art as well as how drawing fits into today’s art world. Written in his signature engaging and evocative style and illustrated with his own previously unpublished art work, A Short Book About Drawing is Andrew Marr’s unique take on this absorbing subject.

Andrew Marr Andrew Marr is a hugely successful writer, TV presenter and political journalist, working for The Scotsman, The Independent, The Daily Express and The Observer. From 2000 to 2005 he was the BBC’s Political Editor. He has presented a range of programmes and most notably hosts The Andrew Marr Show on BBC1. He has published many books, selling over 800,000 copies worldwide. ‘A unique take on the subject of drawing from the journalist and TV presenter Andrew Marr.

The Soul of Scotland

Celia Birtwell

Anam na h-Alba

with Dominic Lutyens

Max Milligan

Celia Birtwell is one of Britain’s best-known textile designers, famous as David Hockney’s chief muse, and equally renowned for her dynamic collaboration with her then husband, Ossie Clarke – in the Sixties and Seventies, London’s most talented fashion duo. With the warmth and visual intricacy of a family scrapbook, this biography features her drawings, her charmingly idiosyncratic, sumptuously colourful design sketches, her fashion and home fabrics, and photographs of Celia, her friends, her bohemian milieu, her work and her eventful life.

Avoiding the clichéd photographs of the same old castles and postcard views, internationally acclaimed photographer Max Milligan turns his artist’s eye on the glens, lochs, towns, islands, peat bogs, beaches and mountains of his native land, from Shetland to The Borders. Fishermen at sea off the Hebrides, Glasgow’s vibrant street life at night, snow on the Black Cuillin, the crofter combing his highland cattle at the Islay Show are recorded here with drama, tenderness and wry humour.

My Life in Pictures Jerry Hall

Perceptions Patrick Lichfield

curated by Jonathan Phang

created by Martin Harrison

One of the world’s top models and a member of the rock aristocracy, Jerry Hall has consistently presented an impeccably glamorous image. Over the years she has been photographed by all the greats, with pictures appearing in magazines throughout the world. Curated by Jerry herself, with the help of Jonathan Phang, this book is a celebration of Jerry’s life – a fabulous collection of photographs from her earliest modelling days to the present time, as well as intimate personal photographs of family and friends. Woven through it is Jerry’s candid and personal account of what she calls her ‘extraordinarily fortunate life’.

The name of Patrick Lichfield (1939–2005), photographer, is indelibly associated with a world of beauty and style that he inhabited with conspicuous success for more than 40 years. Throughout his career he photographed personalities: stars of stage, politicians, aristocracy, royalty, sportsmen and women, models and socialites, as well as ordinary men and women going about their daily business. Curated by Martin Harrison, Perceptions is filled with photographs from Lichfield’s entire archive, over half of which have never been seen before. This retrospective establishes Patrick Lichfield as one of the great British photographers of the late 20th century.

Great Gardens of Italy Monty Don and Derry Moore

A Taste of the Unexpected

The gardens of Italy rank amongst the great treasures of the world and have influenced almost every landscape designer since the Renaissance. A garden is an evolving entity that tells a thousand stories about the people who made it as well as the plants that populate it. Few people have as passionately practical an engagement with gardening as Monty Don. From the southern island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples to the extraordinary Isola Bella, they capture the essence and atmosphere of every garden. Far more than an inventory of plants or designs, this book is provocative, engaging and mesmerising.

This updated and revised card pack is a companion set to Angela McGerr’s Heart & Soul Angel Cards, describing how you can contact angels on a daily basis. It consists of 48 cards in four suits, from which you are able to choose various layouts. The accompanying book describes the meanings of each and every card.

This third set of Angela McGerr’s angelic guidance cards follows the Harmony Angel Cards. The first set encouraged readers to attract angels into their lives; the second helped them to identify their heart’s desire and embark on their soul quest; this final set takes them along the Way of Love and Light towards Ascension. The 48 cards come with an accompanying book showing how to lay out the cards and interpret their meanings.

A companion set to Angela’s hugely successful Harmony Angel Cards, Heart & Soul Angel Cards will take readers further along the way of Love and Light. With 48 cards in four suits and an accompanying book describing the overall meaning of the four suits and the inherent meanings of each and every card, Heart & Soul Angel Cards would make a superb gift for a friend, but will prove so invaluable personally that they could be hard to give away!

Titania’s Star Tarot Titania Hardie

Titania’s Fortune Cards Titania Hardie

Reading the tarot helps us to understand our inner secrets while enabling us to achieve personal harmony along the way. The symbolic cards are capable of articulating emotions and passions, and Titania’s Star Tarot unites the immense flexibility of the traditional meanings of the cards with their equally significant astrological past.

Presented in a beautifully designed pack with an accompanying book, Titania’s Fortune Cards are a modern interpretation of an age-old pack, remaining faithful to the symbolism of the original images, but with a modern twist to better reflect contemporary issues.
