MAGNUM ANNIVERSARY

The official publication celebrating Magnum Photos’ 70th anniversary: a totally fresh and perceptive view of the legendary agency’s history and archive. Clément Chéroux is senior curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Clara Bouveresse is a photographic historian.

Over 400 illustrations 29.5 x 24.5 cm 400pp hardback ISBN 978 0 500 544556 May £45.00

Magnum Photos’ 70th anniversary will be celebrated with a global programme of events throughout 2017.

Magnum Manifesto Edited by Clément Chéroux, in collaboration with Clara Bouveresse

2

In this landmark photography publication and accompanying exhibition, Clément Chéroux demonstrates how Magnum Photos owes its pre-eminence to the ability of its photographers to encompass and navigate the points between photography as art object and photography as documentary evidence. A Magnum photograph can be expressive and bear witness at the same time. Magnum Manifesto is organized into three main parts: Part 1 (1947–1968) views the Magnum archive through a humanist lens, focusing on post-war ideals of commonality and utopianism. Part 2 (1969–1989) shows a world fragmenting, with a focus on subcultures, minorities and outsiders. Part 3 (1990–present day) charts the ways in which Magnum photographers have captured – and continue to capture – a world in flux and under threat. Featuring both individual photographs and in-depth projects that have shaped our view of the world, the book also includes correspondence, notebooks, magazine spreads and other previously unseen material. Magnum Manifesto is an essential purchase for anyone seeking to understand the very best in photography. The accompanying exhibition opens at the International Center for Photography in New York in June 2017. It will then travel to: • Rome, Ara Pacis Museum | February 2018 • C/O Berlin | May 2018

David Hockney: Current Texts by Simon Maidment, Li Bowen, Martin Gayford, Barbara Bolt and Edith Devaney 6

David Hockney is one of the most influential British artists of the past halfcentury, and arguably the country’s greatest living painter. He has dedicated his life to drawing, oil painting, printmaking, set design and photocollage, and more recently has extended his practice into watercolour, charcoal, multi-camera video installation and digital drawing. This book surveys the artist’s output over the past decade. It includes essays by Simon Maidment, Martin Gayford, Li Bowen, Barbara Bolt and Edith Devaney, as well as a Q&A with Hockney himself and a selection of the remarkably prolific and diverse works of these years. It also features, for the first time, the complete catalogue raisonné of Hockney’s iPhone and iPad drawings – some 1,500 works. Reflecting and celebrating a life’s work based on risk-taking and experimentation, this publication will appeal to those familiar with David Hockney and inspire those new to his art.

New Edition

A new edition of this landmark anthology of manifestos, articles and statements by the early-20th-century Russian avant-garde, published to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution. John E. Bowlt is Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Southern California, and Director of its Institute of Modern Russian Culture.

Russian Art of the Avant-Garde New Edition John E. Bowlt 8

During the first third of the 20th century, Russian art went through a series of dramatic changes, reflecting the political and social upheavals of the country and producing – for a brief, exciting period – a body of avant-garde work whose influence would eventually be felt throughout the rest of the world. Eagerly breaking with the past and absorbing the innovations of Europe, a new generation of young artists developed a host of fresh ideas and original styles, such as Neo-primitivism, Rayonism, Suprematism and Constructivism. John E. Bowlt has collected and translated manifestos, articles and declarations by the principal artists and critics of the era, including Kandinsky, Lissitzky, Malevich, Goncharova and Rodchenko, as well as many lesser-known but nonetheless key players. Illustrated with more than 100 rare photographs and facsimiles and supplemented by clear introductory essays, up-to-date biographical information and copious notes, this is the essential sourcebook for a clear understanding of the motivations and struggles that produced an extraordinary, seminal period in modern art.

A lavish and thorough look at a large-scale work of landscape art, produced by one of the world’s greatest living artists. Olafur Eliasson lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin. His Berlin studio, established in 1995, consists of about 90 craftsmen, architects and art historians. Landscape architect Günther Vogt develops projects with some 40 employees in his offices in Zurich, London and Berlin. Contributors include geologist Minik Rosing, and Danish novelist Josefine Klougart, with photographs by Iwan Baan, Annabel Elston and Casper Sejersen.

Your Glacial Expectations Olafur Eliasson and Günther Vogt With a literary contribution by Josefine Klougart 10

One of the most ambitious creative minds of his generation, Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson has produced a dizzying spectrum of work around the world. Best known for his large-scale public works in a wide range of settings, from museums to gardens, his constant inventiveness and social concerns have entranced huge numbers of people. For Your Glacial Expectations, created in 2012 for the headquarters of the Danish textile company Kvadrat, he joined forces with renowned landscape architect Günther Vogt, whose design process is led by an active inquiry into the fascinating workings of the natural world. The book focuses on a single artwork situated across a large site in Eliasson’s home country. As can still be seen in the topography and geology of Denmark, the landscape was formed by the glaciers hinted at in the book’s title. Five mirrors, ranging from a perfect circle to elongated ellipses, reflect the changing sky above and the contemplator’s own gaze, as if in the surfaces of glacial pools. Captured over the course of four seasons, this book offers a highly detailed insight into a singular landscape. Eliasson and Vogt have created a unique space seen by few, documenting the work through photographs, essays and collaborators who render the poetic power of the project through their images and words. Designed by Graphic Thought Facility and Peter Saville, and exquisitely produced and packaged in a limited quantity, this very special volume is a gift to collectors, bibliophiles and all those seeking new perspectives on one of the world’s leading artists.

Tracey Moffatt: My Horizon Edited by Natalie King

12

This is the first book on Tracey Moffatt in ten years. Moffatt has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries across the globe, with more than 100 international exhibitions, including a highly prestigious 2012 solo show at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. She also received the 2007 Infinity Award for Art from New York’s esteemed International Center of Photography. Moffatt has created highly stylized narratives and montage to explore a range of themes, including the complexities of interpersonal relationships, the curiousness of popular culture, and her own profoundly felt childhood memories and fantasies. My Horizon presents a compendium of texts that reflect on Tracey’s highly political and deeply personal fictions, allowing readers to ponder what might be over the horizon. With all new work, including large-scale photography and film, it situates Moffatt’s work in the international arena as an artist who consistently takes the tempo of our times. Contributing authors include Germano Celant, Adrian Martin, Moira Roth, Susan Bright, Djon Mundine, Alexis Wright and Romaine Moreton.

Art & Religion in the 21st Century Aaron Rosen

14

Contrary to the expectations of 20th-century rationalists, religion has not faded away in the 21st century, but roared back onto the scene with renewed vitality – and blaspheming artists get all the press. Some exploit the shock potential of religious imagery, but many also reflect deeply on spiritual matters. This survey shows how religious themes and images continue to permeate the work of contemporary artists from across the globe. The introduction outlines the debates and controversies that the art– religion connection has precipitated throughout history. Each of the book’s chapters opens by introducing a theme – ideas about creation, the sublime, wonder, diaspora and exile, religious and political conflict, ritual practice, mourning and monumentalizing, environmental art and sacred space – followed by a selection of works of art that develop that theme. The book encompasses a wide range of media and genres, from sculpture to street art, and considers faith in its broadest sense – from Islam and Christianity to Aboriginal mythology and meditation. Art & Religion in the 21st Century is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary art and culture.

Bosch The 5th Centenary Exhibition Edited by Pilar Silva Maroto The Museo del Prado houses the largest known collection of works by Jheronimus Bosch. Among its holdings are The Adoration of the Magi and The Garden of Earthly Delights triptychs, as well as the original of The Haywain, making it the ‘home of Bosch’ and the perfect institution to hold a major exhibition marking the quincentenary of the artist’s death. This richly illustrated book reproduces these masterpieces and other recently cleaned and restored paintings held in thirty other institutions around the world, and reveals hitherto unknown facets of Bosch’s art. A distinguished team of Bosch scholars contribute to the volume. Pilar Silva Maroto’s essay presents an updated biography of Bosch and his family, which locates the artist in the context of his home town, ’s-Hertogenbosch, and includes all the surviving documents dating from his lifetime. Eric De Bruyn considers Bosch’s sources in texts and images; Paul Vandenbroeck, his values and ideology; and Larry Silver, the sins and their punishment, a fundamental theme in the artist’s work. Finally, there is a ‘conversation’ between Reindert Falkenburg and The Garden of Earthly Delights triptych, and a reflection by Fernando Checa on the reception of Bosch at the Habsburg court in Flanders and in Spain in the 16th century.

Cave Art Bruno David Deep underground, hidden from view, some of humanity’s earliest artistic endeavours have lain buried for thousands of years. Shell beads signal that 100,000 years ago humans had developed a sense of self and a desire to beautify the body; ostrich eggshells incised with curious geometric patterns hint at how communities used art, through the power of symbols, to communicate ways of doing things and bind people together. In time, people came to adorn cave walls with symbols, some abstract, others vivid arrangements of animals and humans. Often undisturbed for millennia, these were among the first visual symbols that humans shared with each other. However, as Bruno David reveals, we have ways of unlocking their secrets. In pictures and words, David tells the story of this mysterious world of decorated caves, from the oldest known ‘painting kits’, found virtually intact after their use 100,000 years ago in South Africa, to the magnificent murals of the European Ice Age that are so famous today. Showcasing the most astounding discoveries made in the past 150 years of archaeological exploration, Cave Art explores these creative achievements, from our remotest ancestors to recent times, and what they tell us about the human past and ourselves today.

‘Creative and original … This book is a new way to frame our attempts to understand cave art on a global scale and is an easy but provocative read. Bravo!’ Meg Conkey, Professor Emerita, University of California, Berkeley

The first biography of the circle of British inter-war artists and designers centred on Ravilious – an enthralling narrative of creative achievement, joy and tragedy. Andy Friend is a Ravilious expert and and co-curator of Towner Art Gallery’s major touring exhibition, ‘Ravilious & Co.’ Alan Powers – art historian, artist and author – has written a number of books on Ravilious including Eric Ravilious: Artist and Designer and Eric Ravilious: Imagined Realities.

‘A lovingly researched and crafted portrait of intricately connected creative lives… New voices emerge from the archives, unfamiliar images light up the pages. Here, above all, is the joyous making of art’ Alexandra Harris

Ravilious & Co. The Pattern of Friendship Andy Friend • Introduction by Alan Powers In recent years Eric Ravilious has become recognized as one of the most important British artists of the 20th century, whose watercolours and wood engravings capture an essential sense of place and the spirit of midcentury England. What is less appreciated is that he did not work in isolation, but within a much wider network of artists, friends and lovers influenced by Paul Nash’s teaching at the Royal College of Art – Edward Bawden, Barnett Freedman, Enid Marx, Tirzah Garwood, Percy Horton, Peggy Angus and Helen Binyon among them. The Ravilious group bridged the gap between fine art and design, and the gentle, locally rooted but spritely character of their work came to be seen as the epitome of contemporary British values. Seventy-five years after Ravilious’s untimely death, Andy Friend tells the story of this group of artists from their student days through to the Second World War. Ravilious & Co. explores how they influenced each other and how a shared experience animated their work, revealing the significance in this pattern of friendship of women artists, whose place within the history of British art has often been neglected. Generously illustrated and drawing on extensive research, and a wealth of newly discovered material, this is an enthralling narrative of creative achievement, joy and tragedy.


BIOGRAPHY

The story of three passionate, unconventional and original 20th-century women and the Venetian Palazzo that they in turn inhabited. Judith Mackrell is the Guardian’s dance critic, and a successful author of non-fiction titles, including Bloomsbury Ballerina and the bestselling Flappers, which combined the biographies of six women whose lives together encapsulated the history of the flapper era.

69 illustrations 23.4 x 15.3 cm 408pp hardback ISBN 978 0 500 518663 April £19.95

The Unfinished Palazzo Life, Love and Art in Venice The Stories of Luisa Casati, Doris Castlerosse and Peggy Guggenheim Judith Mackrell 19 Commissioned in 1750, the Palazzo Venier was planned as a testimony to the power and wealth of a great Venetian family, but the project was abandoned with only one storey complete. Empty and decaying, ‘il palazzo non finito’ was an eyesore for over a century until it came to be inhabited by the very different women whose stories are told in this gripping book. Luisa Casati, Doris Castlerosse and Peggy Guggenheim in turn used the Unfinished Palazzo as a stage on which to re-fashion her life, each making the building famous, or notorious, in her way. Their worlds of art and imagination boasted an amazing supporting cast, from D’Annunzio and Nijinsky, via Noel Coward, Winston Churchill and Cecil Beaton, to Yoko Ono. Marchesa Luisa Casati made her home an aesthete’s fantasy and venue for parties as decadent as Renaissance court operas, spending small fortunes on her own costumes in her quest to become a ‘living work of art’. British socialite Doris Castlerosse (née Delevingne) made her mark during the hedonistic interwar years, hosting film stars and royalty at glittering parties. Jewish-American heiress Peggy Guggenheim turned the Palazzo into a model of modernist simplicity to house her exquisite collection of modern and surrealist art that today draws tourists and art-lovers from around the world. Individually, the lives of these women make remarkable stories of rebellion, absurd privilege and bold self-invention. Together they offer a snapshot of history – both of modern Venice, and of the way women chose to live in the 20th century.

Hokusai Beyond the Great Wave Timothy Clark et al.

‘Until the age of seventy, nothing I drew was worthy of notice’ Hokusai, 1834

An acknowledged master during his lifetime, Hokusai created sublime works during the last thirty years of his life, right up to his death at the age of ninety. Exhibitions since the 1980s have presented his long career as a chronological sequence. This publication, which will coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, takes a fresh approach based on innovative scholarship: thematic groupings of late works are related to the major spiritual and artistic quests of Hokusai’s life. Hokusai’s personal beliefs are contemplated here through analyses of major brush paintings, drawings, woodblock prints and illustrated books. The publication gives due attention to the contribution of Hokusai’s daughter Eijo (Oi), also an accomplished artist. Hokusai continually explored the mutability and minutiae of natural phenomena in his art. His late subjects and styles were based on a mastery of eclectic Japanese, Chinese and European techniques and an encyclopedic knowledge of nature, myth and history. Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave draws on the finest collections of his work in Japan and around the world, making this the most important publication for years on Hokusai and a uniquely valuable overview of the artist’s late career.

Stephen Coppel, Catherine Daunt and Susan Tallman With contributions from Isabel Seligman and Jennifer Ramkalawon In the early 1960s, American printmaking experienced a dynamic resurgence that placed it at the heart of artistic practice. Such was the medium’s attraction that by 1970 virtually every major American artist was exploring its creative potential in collaborative print workshops. Throughout the past six decades, as leading artists have experimented with different materials and new techniques, prints have continued to reflect their central concerns. The American Dream: pop to the present presents an overview of this extraordinarily vibrant period of American printmaking, from the moment pop art burst onto the New York and West Coast scenes in the early 1960s, through the rise of minimalism, conceptual art and photorealism in the 1970s, to the engagement with issues such as race, AIDS and feminism right up to the present day. Particular attention is given to key figures such as Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Ed Ruscha as well as to more recent practitioners, including Jenny Holzer, Kiki Smith, Glenn Ligon and Julie Mehretu. The vital role of several print workshops is also discussed. Fully illustrated with more than 200 key works by almost 70 artists, informative commentaries on the prints and concise biographies of the artists, this book reveals the unprecedented scale, boldness and ambition of American printmaking since the 1960s.

Places of the Mind British watercolour landscapes 1850–1950 Edited by Kim Sloan • With essays by Jessica Feather, Anna Gruetzner Robins, Sam Smiles and Frances Carey The attempts by artists of the Victorian and early Modern period to convey not merely the physical properties of a landscape but also its emotional and spiritual impact – landscape as ‘places of the mind’, as the critic Geoffrey Grigson put it – is the focus of this fascinating new study of British watercolours produced between 1850 and 1950. Drawing on the British Museum’s impressive collection, this book explores artists’ spiritual quests to capture the essence of landscape and convey a sense of place. Artists of the later 19th and early 20th centuries drew on earlier traditions but developed and extended the genre through their imaginative, personal responses to the artistic, cultural and social upheavals of the time. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, this book includes works by Victorian artists Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Poynter and by many well known 20th-century artists, such as John and Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson and Henry Moore, some of which have never previously been published.

The Age of Glamour An Art Deco Colouring Book

24

Throughout the boom and bust of the 1920s and 1930s, Art Deco defined modern style while drawing on the design traditions of the past. Designers captured the spirit of the fabled ‘Jazz Age’, inspired by the glamour and romanticism of Hollywood films and the new streamlined forms of modern architecture. This colouring book explores the work of key designers of the period from the V&A’s outstanding collection, including Georges Barbier and Robert Bonfils. Full-colour reproductions of the original designs are juxtaposed with more than forty line drawings for readers to complete. A short introduction places the designs in their historic and artistic contexts, and thumbnails at the end of the book identify all the images. Art Deco remains enduringly popular for its eclecticism, rich colours and bold use of line and shape. The era is still a rich source of inspiration and has influenced countless designers and artists.

An exquisite facsimile of the Kelmscott Press edition of William Morris’s seminal 1890 novel. William Morris (1834–1896) was an English artist, designer, social reformer and writer associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the Arts and Crafts Movement. Dr Rowan Williams was the Archbishop of Canterbury, 2002–2012, and is now Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge.

News from Nowhere William Morris • Introduction by Rowan Williams News from Nowhere caused a stir with its unusual blend of utopian socialism and science fiction when it was first published in instalments in William Morris’s socialist newspaper The Commonweal in 1890. The Kelmscott Press edition, printed in 1892 and reproduced in this facsimile edition, was a triumph of book design and making. After attending a Socialist League meeting and returning home to the London suburb of Hammersmith, narrator William Guest awakens the next day to find himself in the twenty-first century. Industrial buildings have been transformed into a pastoral paradise; civilians are dressed in fourteenthcentury costume; there is an abundance of open-air markets and wooded areas and gardens; and money, prisons and divorce have been abolished. The bewildered but enchanted Guest embarks on a journey across London and up the Thames to Kelmscott Manor, during which he learns that England, now called ‘Nowhere’, has become a decentralized and humane socialist society following a revolutionary upheaval. Part utopia and part romance, News from Nowhere is William Morris’s depiction of an ideal nation peopled with ‘happy and lovely folk, who had cast away riches and attained to wealth’. In its appreciation that industrial capitalism has alienated us from the world we actually inhabit, News from Nowhere is as relevant today as when it was first published. The beautiful Kelmscott Press edition, like the narrative itself, embodies Morris’s belief that art and beauty should be accessible to all.

The Art of Jewelry Patrick Mauriès and Évelyne Possémé Flowers have long been a source of inspiration for jewelers, many of whom have sought to capture their transient beauty in glittering gemstones and precious metals. In the 17th and 18th centuries, flowers were imitated in enamel or used as motifs for elaborate gemstone bodice ornaments. Brooches, pendants and rings took the form of bouquets or flower baskets. The stylized blooms of the Empire style were followed by the highly naturalistic blossoms of the later 19th century. Flowers continued to flourish in the sinuous shapes of Art Nouveau, the geometric designs of Art Deco and the sculptural simplicity of modernism, with great artists including René Lalique and Georges Fouquet constantly reworking nature’s forms for their style-conscious clientele. Now, contemporary designers such as Claude Lalanne, Lorenz Bäumer and JAR continue to create floral jewelry for today’s trendsetters. The floral pieces in this book have all been selected from the magnificent jewelry collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and range from the 17th century to the present day. Beautifully photographed by renowned photographer Jean-Marie del Moral, these intricate works of art will delight all lovers of jewelry and nature.

Foreword by Princess Catherine Aga Khan Introduction by Pierre Rainero • Essays by Évelyne Possémé, Stephen Harrison and Sarah D. Coffin • Catalogue Texts by Sarah Davis One Christmas Eve, Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan gave his wife, Princess Catherine, an exquisite jeweled box made by Cartier around 1930, thus starting a magnificent collection of objects created in the Art Deco era by jewelers, at a time when the jeweler’s art was at the height of beauty and creativity.

Smoky nightclubs and exotically decorated apartments provided a new landscape for the designs of the great jewelry houses of Europe and America, with the most coveted pieces from Paris. Expert authors explore this new artistic world by considering the exotic influences of the most important jewelers – including Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, Boucheron, Lacloche Frères and Cartier – as well as the process of design and making, and the impact of changing femininity. Well over 100 pieces are accompanied by detailed descriptions and have been specially photographed for this book by the renowned photographer Doug Rosa. This collection from the most important period in the history of jewelry and the decorative arts is unsurpassed in quality and is beautifully presented with a wealth of context and detail.

Pattern and Ornament in the Arts of India Henry Wilson This visual exploration of India’s decorative genius focuses on architecture – forts, palaces, havelis or mansions, tombs, temples and mosques. It concentrates on north-west India, which has an exceptionally rich seam of ornamented architecture – forts and palaces of Rajput and Mughal princes, mansions of Gujarati merchants, and much more. Three elements are essential to the evolution of this ornamentation: the natural world, the materials themselves, and the many hundreds of thousands of artists and craftsmen who have created this generous abundance of work in carved stone, wood, plaster both moulded and painted, and glass. Henry Wilson examines all in his introductory texts, and displays the results in his remarkable photographs and stencil-like drawings. This outstanding sourcebook of images will seduce and inform lovers of design, lovers of India and practising artists and designers everywhere.

Ornament and Decoration in Islamic Architecture Dominique Clévenot • Gérard Degeorge Surface decoration has always played a key role in Islamic architecture. As human representation is forbidden in Islamic religious monuments, designers employed mosaics, stucco, brickwork and ceramics, and the vigorous use of brilliant colour to reach unparalleled heights of expression. It is this ornamental dimension of Islamic architecture that is explored in this magnificent volume. Rather than limiting itself to an exclusively historical or chronological perspective, Ornament and Decoration in Islamic Architecture presents four successive approaches to its subject. The first part offers an overview of Islamic architecture, discussing its great diversity. Dealing exclusively with techniques, the second part considers the materials most often used as well as the expertise of the builders and Muslim decorative artists, and the third part explores themes in Islamic ornamentation. Section four discusses aesthetics, and studies the relationship between the buildings – the structures or their architectonic components – and their ornamental coverings. Each of these topics is presented through a number of outstanding examples and then through comparable monuments from all over the Islamic world. For anyone in thrall to such great wonders as the Taj Mahal and the Alhambra, and for everyone interested in the world of Islam, this lavish publication will be indispensable.

‘As much a personal manifesto as a multi-layered exploration of the significance of fashion in society … thought-provoking … Corner races through her subjects elegantly and succinctly’ The Financial Times

Aaron Betsky Architecture does matter. To our cities, to our planet, to our personal lives. How we design and what we build has an impact that usually lasts for generations. The more we understand the importance of architecture, and the thinking and decisions behind the buildings we create, the better world we will construct. Who better to guide readers into the rich and complex world of contemporary architecture than Aaron Betsky, former architect, author, curator and museum director, and today dean of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Combining his early experiences working with and meeting cutting-edge architects with his frequent role as jury member selecting the world’s most prominent global architects to build icons for cities, Betsky possesses rare insight into the mechanisms, politics and personalities that play a role in how buildings in our societies and urban centres come to be. In over thirty themes and drawing from his own experiences and encounters with people and buildings around the world, he explores a broad spectrum of topics, from the meaning of domestic space to the spectacle of the urban realm. Accessible, instructive and hugely enjoyable, this book will open the eyes of anyone dreaming of becoming an architect, and bring a wry smile to anyone that already is.

Building Community New Apartment Architecture Michael Webb 36

Building Community is an in-depth, wide-ranging survey of contemporary apartment buildings, not as raw canvases for interior decoration but as a building type of growing significance. An introduction presents the history of multiple-occupancy housing through its most innovative 20th-century exemplars, from the urbane blocks of Auguste Perret and Henri Sauvage in Paris, to the landscaped housing estates of Weimar Germany and the visionary schemes of Le Corbusier. The heart of the book features 39 recent or ongoing projects, designed by leading international studios and rising talents. Buildings range from social housing and micro apartments to urban villages, megastructures and innovative high-rises. Each project is considered for the way in which it enriches the lives of residents and the city, and is shown through drawings and photographs, taken from the street and within. The book also includes interviews with such contemporary masters of apartment design as Michael Maltzan, Lorcan O’Herlihy, Édouard François and Bjarke Ingels. As our cities grow more crowded, it is critical that we produce creative buildings that enhance the lives of their inhabitants, their surroundings and the urban environment as a whole. Building Community offers dozens of proven successes to designers and apartment-dwellers.

The Work of MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects Economy as Ethic Robert McCarter Foreword by Juhani Pallasmaa • Afterword by Kenneth Frampton 38

MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects, the influential and award-winning firm based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, have an international reputation. Producing a wide range of projects both in Canada and further afield, they work in a sophisticated modern vernacular idiom, drawing inspiration from a rich local heritage of building types and reinterpreting them according to the best practices of 21st-century architecture. It is above all for their dignified and beautiful houses perched on the wild, rocky coasts of Nova Scotia that the firm is recognized. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this remarkable body of work is based around a number of plan types that answer to the particular local climate: open to the sun but sheltered from the winds, and built using traditional materials that are allowed to weather, these dwellings embody the architects’ engagement with their unique surroundings and material culture. This new monograph covers MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects’ complete work. Introductions by renowned architectural writers set the scene, while individual projects are illustrated through evocative photographs and detailed plans and drawings. What emerges is a celebration of an architecture that is both practical and deeply poetic.

Warehouse Home Industrial Inspiration for Twenty-First-Century Living Sophie Bush 42

‘ Warehouse Home freshens up the design market. It is full of great ideas and inspiration for contemporary living with a huge nod of respect to our industrial heritage’ Sir Terence Conran

The love of warehouse buildings has become a global phenomenon, from London to New York, Sydney to Florence. Warehouse Home takes the reader on a tour of the world’s most inspirational industrial conversions. From live-work spaces to family-friendly lofts, substantial developments to single-family dwellings, it showcases a plethora of remarkable residences in historic granaries, former textile factories, tanneries, old printworks and, of course, warehouses. Drawing on her own experience of living in a Grade II listed mill, Sophie Bush examines the qualities that make these homes truly unique: exposed timber beams and bare brickwork, structural columns and industrial doors, combined with heights and scales uncommon within more conventional homes. Case studies offer design insights and personal perspectives from the architects and homeowners. Warehouse Home also provides unique tips and ideas for achieving a warehousestyle feel in any home, and on sourcing distinctive lighting and accessories crafted from salvaged materials. Celebrating the movement for retaining the true character of neglected neighbourhoods through revitalizing the urban fabric, this book will inspire us to live, and work, differently.

David Hicks: Intimate A World of Private Interiors David Hicks • Foreword by Neale Whitaker Photographs by Ivan Terestchenko and Shannon McGrath David Hicks’s interior design work is streamlined and modern, yet tactile and luxurious while hinting at a little nostalgia; it is an aesthetic that has been described as ‘new luxury’. The influential Australian designer has a knack for mixing styles, periods and antiques, which he then juxtaposes with modern finishes. However, his design philosophy extends far beyond the surface, and architectural considerations are balanced with a keen eye for decoration. Every detail from materials and finishes to decorative objects and furnishings are thoughtfully curated with an emphasis on enduring quality. This collection of Hicks’s most covetable spaces is an invitation into an intimate world of interiors where no detail is too small. With photography by Ivan Terestchenko, Intimate is David Hicks’s personal perspective, a narrative of his references and inspirations – from the detailed curation of objects and art sourced from the world over, through to the architectural detailing and finishes.

The Anatomy of Colour The Story of Heritage Paints & Pigments Patrick Baty 46

The definitive book on the use of colour and paint in interior decoration over a three-hundred year period, The Anatomy of Colour is certain to appeal to both amateur and professional restorers, renovators, enthusiastic decorators and all those with an interest in interior decoration and design. Drawing on his huge specialist archive, Patrick Baty traces the evolution of pigments and paint colours together with colour systems and standards, and examines their impact on the colour palettes used in interiors from the 1660s to the 1960s. He first charts the creation in paint of the common and expensive colours made from traditional earth pigments between 1650 to 1799. Next he examines the emergence of colour systems and standards and their influence on paint colours together with the effect of industrialized production on the texture and durability of paints. Finally, Baty turns his attention to 20th-century colour standards, including those developed originally for the purpose of identifying flowers, such as the Répertoire de Couleurs des Fleurs, des Feuillages et des Fruits, each incarnation of the British Colour Standard cards, Walpamur paint swatch cards and Parson’s Tint Book of Historical Colours. Throughout the book reproductions of interiors highlighting the distinctive colour trends and styles of painting particular to each period and room accompany the in-depth analysis of the history of colour and the development and use of paint colours in interior design.

The English Country House James Peill • Introduction by Julian Fellowes Photographs by James Fennell 48

‘Glorious ... a must for anyone interested in the English country house’ Historic House ‘Its tone is deliberately light, balancing the nuts and bolts of architectural history with family anecdote ... Offers inspiration for colour, pattern and the arrangement of rooms ... Very enjoyable’ The World of Interiors

Ranging from Kentchurch Court, a former fortified medieval manor house that has been the seat of the Scudamore family for nearly 1,000 years, to a delightful Strawberry Hill-style Gothic house in rural Cornwall and car-crazed Goodwood House, this beautifully illustrated book showcases ten outstanding English country houses, all still in the hands of the original families. James Peill recounts the ups and downs of such deep-rooted clans as the Cracrofts, landowners in Lincolnshire since the 12th century, whose late 18th-century Hackthorn Hall is a perfect example of the kind of house Jane Austen describes in her novels (indeed, she appears on their family tree), as well as the relatively newly arrived Biddulphs, who constructed Rodmarton, an Arts & Crafts masterpiece, in the first decades of the last century. James Fennell provides superb photographs of a wealth of gardens, charming interiors, bygone sporting trophies, fine art collections and fanciful family memorabilia, making The English Country House a delicious treat for Anglophiles and lovers of old houses.

‘Packed with ideas you’ll want to steal’ Grand Designs

The countryside has always held appeal for those trapped in the urban jungle, as it can be difficult for artful minds to isolate themselves from the 24/7 stimuli that cities bring. With a greater appetite for ‘authentic’ experiences, working practices and creative inspiration, metropolitan talents are setting up studios far from the madding crowd. Combining a more relaxed lifestyle, budding entrepreneurship and social media, a new generation of young creatives is redefining ‘country living’. Creative Living Country celebrates this new breed of artists and creatives – from photographers to textile designers and ceramicists – who have found a way to make their homes, work and lifestyle a seamless whole away from the city lights. Looking at 25 houses across the UK, Chloe Grimshaw and Luke White provide a glimpse into truly original homes that could only have been inspired by country life. From the East Anglian fens to the Cornish coast, the unique landscapes that make up the British experience take on new meaning in the hands of these creative pioneers and provide inspiration for all of us, no matter where we live.

Erik Madigan Heck: Old Future Essays by Susan Bright and Justine Picardie

In contemporary fashion photography, Erik Madigan Heck is something of an anomaly – a very successful anomaly who steers his own path. His work is elegant and unashamedly beautiful, exploring the intersections of fashion, painting and classical portraiture. Working with natural light and combining in-camera effects with digital post-production, he produces evocative and seductive images that are simultaneously timeless and futuristic. His work stands alongside that of the greats, yet he is a true original and no mere impersonator. Erik Madigan Heck: Old Future presents more than 100 photographs in a flowing, chromatic sequence. With essays by Susan Bright and Justine Picardie that look at Heck’s place within the realms of both art photography and fashion, and with an index to the photographs captioning the piece, model, designer, collection or publication in which each image appeared, this book is the essential introduction to a future master of fashion photography.

New in Thames & Hudson’s acclaimed ‘Photofile’ series, this book surveys the work of William Klein, best known for New York. Christian Caujolle studied in Paris with Michel Foucault, Roland Barthes and Pierre Bourdieu. He worked as Picture Director at Libération before founding the VU photo agency in 1986.

William Klein Introduction by Christian Caujolle William Klein was born in New York City in 1928. After enlisting in the army he was stationed in Germany and then France, where he would later settle permanently. His interest in art began with abstract painting and shifted to photography in the early 1950s as he began his career in fashion photography with Vogue magazine. He gained notoriety for his ambivalent and ironic approach to fashion photography and can be credited as one of the founding fathers of street photography. He directed such satirical films as Who are You, Polly Maggoo?, as well as documentary shorts and features. This latest addition to the Photofile series assembles the experimental, unforgettable moments captured by William Klein in one accessible volume.

Sergio Larrain: Valparaíso Texts by Agnès Sire and Pablo Neruda Sergio Larrain (1931–2012) published very few books during his lifetime, but perhaps the most fêted among them was Valparaíso. He photographed this Chilean seaport throughout his career, but it was in the early 1960s, when he returned to his homeland after travelling the world for many years as a Magnum photographer, that it became a focus for his attention. He saw it as ‘a rather sordid yet romantic city’, standing between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, falling into a slow decline as its trading importance faded away, yet still retaining hints of beauty and magic. Now published in English for the first time with an essay by Agnès Sire as well as a specially written text by Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda, this new edition of Valparaíso is based on a layout that Larrain designed in 1993, in response to the original French edition of 1991. It includes a selection of previously unpublished photographs taken between 1952 and 1992, expanding the original 36 images to a total of 120. This intimate book features handwritten notes and texts by the artist himself, allowing us to share his singular vision of the world and its moments of grace.

Karl Blossfeldt: Masterworks Ann and Jürgen Wilde • Foreword and Botanical Notes by Hansjörg Küster

62

Karl Blossfeldt (1865–1932) was a great pioneer of botanical photography, yet he was neither a professional photographer nor a botanist. A professor at the Academy of Applied Arts in Berlin, he was a sculptor and amateur photographer, and his interest in the plant world was originally educational. Fascinated by the structure of plants, whose apparently artistic forms were created by biological expediency, he realized that photography could be a useful teaching tool, allowing his students to see and compare many natural forms. Blossfeldt worked with a homemade camera and gathered and photographed his own plant samples, magnifying them by up to 45 times. From around 1898 onwards, he shot some 6,000 images, which he used primarily as visual aids in his classes. Eventually published as Art Forms in Nature (1928) and Art Forms in Nature, Second Series (1932), his photographs had a lasting impact on the art of his day and were enthusiastically embraced by both the Surrealists and the New Objectivity movement. His books brought him overnight fame and are still considered landmarks in the history of art and photography. This volume brings together a remarkable collection of Blossfeldt’s strikingly austere yet poetic portraits of plants, capturing their timeless beauty in intimate detail.

The Polaroid Project At the Intersection of Art and Technology Edited by William A. Ewing and Barbara P. Hitchcock 64

Accompanies a touring exhibition organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography (FEP), which opens at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth, Texas, in June 2017 before travelling to the WestLicht Museum of Photography, Vienna, in November 2017, C/O Berlin in March 2018, and worldwide thereafter.

In 1943 the American inventor and scientist Edwin H. Land was asked by his daughter why she couldn’t see immediately the photograph he had just taken. Within an hour, Land had conceived of the technology required to make this seemingly impossible demand a reality. So begins the story of Polaroid instant photography, an invention that revolutionized the taking and making of pictures. But Land’s creation was more than a groundbreaking scientific accomplishment; it also heralded an exciting new chapter of artistic expression. Through the efforts of thousands of photographers the world over, as well as the corporation’s own artist support programme, which provided many with materials, Polaroid would help shape the artistic landscape of the late twentieth century – and, indeed, up to the present day. Published to accompany a major travelling exhibition, The Polaroid Project is a creative exploration of the relationship between Polaroid’s many technological innovations and the art that was created with their help. More than 300 illustrations showcase not only the myriad approaches and often idiosyncratic work produced by such photographers as Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe, Ellen Carey and Chuck Close, but also a fascinating selection of the technical objects and artefacts that speak of the sheer ingenuity behind the art. With essays by the exhibition’s curators and leading photographic writers and historians, The Polaroid Project provides a unique perspective on the Polaroid phenomenon – a technology, an art form, a convergence of both – and its enduring cultural legacy.

167 illustrations 28.5 x 24.0 cm 240pp hardback ISBN 978 0 500 544761 March ÂŁ32.00

Introduction by James Attlee The nations bordering the North Sea have always been engaged in a dialogue with water. The sea is the source of livelihoods as well as leisure, industry and relaxation. Holidaymakers are not the only ones drawn to the seaside: the currency of both painters and photographers is light, and under Northern skies the best light is often to be found where land joins water. In addition, coastal locations often give urban artists an opportunity to observe life in the raw. North Sea provides the overarching theme for this showcase of vintage and contemporary photography, accompanied by paintings and songs, poetry and prose by a diverse cast of artists, from Wordsworth and Keats to Bob Dylan and Radiohead. Its pages capture both the sublimity of nature and a cast of human subjects, whose lives are placed in perspective by the vastness of the sea. In spite of the changes wrought by history, the fascination of the frontier between land and water remains timeless, and these images stand as a striking testament to the relationship between the sea and the people who live and work alongside it.

Billie Holiday at Sugar Hill Photographs by Jerry Dantzic • Text by Grayson Dantzic Introduction by Zadie Smith 70

In 1957, New York photojournalist Jerry Dantzic spent time with the iconic singer Billie Holiday during a two-week run of performances at the Newark, New Jersey, nightclub Sugar Hill. The resulting images offer a rare behind-thescenes glimpse of Billie at work and at play. We see her with her family, friends and her pet chihuahua, Pepe; playing with her godchild (son of her autobiography’s co-author, William Dufty); washing dishes at the Duftys’ home; walking the streets of Newark; in her hotel room; waiting backstage or having a drink in front of the stage; and performing. The years and the struggles seem to vanish when she sings: her face lights up. Later that year, Dantzic photographed her at the second New York Jazz Festival at Randall’s Island, in colour. Only a handful of the photographs in this book have ever been published. The collection is introduced by the celebrated writer Zadie Smith.

Their revolutionary cover art moved away from the conventional group shots favoured by record companies of the day, resulting in the ground-breaking, often surreal designs which define the albums of many of the biggest names in the history of popular music: 10cc, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Peter Gabriel, The Police, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, Syd Barrett, Throbbing Gristle, T. Rex, Wings, Yes and XTC, to name but a few. Now, at last, the complete, definitive and never-before-published catalogue of Hipgnosis, Vinyl • Album • Cover • Art, does justice to the work of the most important design collective in music history. Arranged chronologically, it features stunning reproductions of every single Hipgnosis cover – 373 in total – coupled with detailed information by Po and Storm Thorgerson on the artworks and the stories behind their creation. Insightful introductory text by Po charts the story of Hipgnosis, while extensive articles by Peter Gabriel, Storm Thorgerson, Marcus Bradbury and Pentagram’s Harry Pearce provide engrossing insights into the way these incredible artworks came into being; place the covers in context; and reflect on their enduring impact on album design.

Animation: The Global History Maureen Furniss

74

This book provides an essential foundation for the study of animation in its many forms. Maureen Furniss surveys the cultural, political and economic context of how this dynamic industry evolved, emphasizing both artistic and technical achievements from around the world. She introduces readers to industrial productions and arts-based practices related to drawn and painted animation, stop-motion and computer-generated imagery; major studios within the USA and Japan; and animation produced throughout Eastern and Western Europe, the UK, Australia, Latin America, South Africa and elsewhere. The films run the gamut of the major studios – Disney, Fleischer, Warner Bros., Pixar and more – as well as all types of animated production, including: World War II propaganda; short films; experimental and abstract animation; animation on television, in video games and in the art world. The analysis of these works is placed within historical contexts that help readers understand the ‘big picture’ that has influenced the development of animation down the years. To help with the presentation of material and to assist the reader’s understanding, the book’s content is presented in a six-part structure. Each part begins with a timeline that places in historical context the major turning-points in animation. Global Storylines provide an overview of the content in each chapter, and a glossary in the back of the book defines animation-specific terminology.

Type Tells Tales Steven Heller and Gail Anderson

78

Typography has traditionally been seen as a ‘crystal goblet’, designed to convey a message neutrally without attracting attention to itself. In Type Tells Tales, Steven Heller and Gail Anderson break down this preconception, uncovering examples of typography that speaks – or shouts – with a voice of its own. Letters take on the form of people or animals, wander off the page, or appear in dramatically varying sizes to create a typographic pantomime. This is type that is integral to the message it is expressing, letterforms that explode the boundaries of printed expression. The designers featured in this eclectic contemporary collection give a new voice to all forms of writing, from fairy tales and children’s books to rap lyrics and literary classics. Experimenting with diverse media, they lift typography away from the printed page and show that everything – from baseball bats and clothing to the human body – can be transformed into typographic art.

Revival Type Digital Typefaces Inspired by the Past Paul Shaw • Foreword by Jonathan Hoefler 80

Revival Type is an overview of the various ways in which lettering and typefaces from the past have provided inspiration for contemporary type designers. Some designs are not revivals of typefaces but of letterforms, from inscriptions to calligraphic manuals to lettering in posters, bookjackets and other ephemera. Some revivals are aesthetic extensions or reimaginings of 20th-century typefaces occasioned by the need to update them technically. And others are actually reinterpretations or variations of typefaces from the past, necessitated by having to make types that function in the 21st century and not in the past. Among the fonts are interpretations of classic designs by Nicolas Jenson, Claude Garamont, Robert Granjon, William Caslon, John Baskerville, Giambattista Bodoni, Firmin Didot and other iconic names. Alongside them are typefaces rooted in the work of important, though lesser known, names such as Eudald Pradell, Philippe Grandjean, and Richard Austin. Finally, there are updates and revisions of 20th-century classics like Palatino, Meridien, DIN, Metro, and Neue Haas Grotesk (the original name of Helvetica). Revival Type demonstrates that the best typefaces are as much a part of the 21st century as of the age they were created: they transcend time and place.

The works are organized into thematic chapters such as ‘Pretty Ugly’ (portraits), ‘In Out’ (sex), ‘Life Death’ (conflict), and ‘Less More’ (daily life). Alongside the images, Bar reveals his working methods and the stories behind his often idiosyncratic inspiration for different illustrations, and reflects on how his life experiences have shaped him as an artist. As a collection, the whole is much greater than the sum of these many, many-layered parts. It is destined to become a must-have reference source for all professionals in the worlds of graphic design and illustration, while also being an enthralling treasury for any follower of visual and popular culture.

For team sponsors they must stand out, and in doing so they must increase brand awareness. For cycling fans they help pick out their favourites or a race or competition leader. Jerseys show who is a world or a national champion. And in some races, jerseys tell of a competitor’s nationality. But cycling jerseys have evolved into something bigger than all those things. Some jerseys are iconic, others stylish, and some are beautiful. They can evoke good times or bad times, success or failure. Above all, jerseys mark the great occasions of cycling, they speak of its history, its personalities and its style. And all jerseys have an element of art in their design. Cycling Jerseys celebrates the greatest jersey designs in the history of competitive cycling, from the simple garb of the early racers to the high-tech jerseys worn today. Stunning archive photography and specially sourced images accompany the in-depth story of the iconic garments associated with illustrious riders and legendary teams – the jerseys of champions.

People Power Fighting for Peace from the First World War to the Present Lyn Smith • Foreword by Sheila Hancock 92

People Power charts the history of the anti-war movement in the UK from the outbreak of the First World War to present-day conflicts in the Middle East, telling the story of conscientious objectors and others who have been engaged in protest over the past century. Drawing on testimonies from the Imperial War Museum’s vast collection, and its rich archive of visual material, including photographs, paintings, posters, cartoons and badges, the book explores the wide-ranging reasons for opposing war and examines the changes and continuity in the movement as the nature of conflict has evolved from trench warfare to nuclear stand-off and the ‘endless war’ on terrorism. The role of key organizations and groups within the movement is examined, such as the Peace Pledge Union in the 1930s and the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp in the 1980s, as well as that of high-profile individual campaigners, including Fenner Brockway, Virginia Woolf and Tony Benn. Accompanying a major exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, London, People Power is an important and compelling counterpart to the myriad histories of war in the past hundred years.

Pocket Museum: Ancient Greece David Michael Smith Pocket Museum: Greece presents nearly 200 objects currently housed in public collections around the world that offer both context and immediacy to the rich culture of Ancient Greece. From the bifacial hand tools of the Lower Paleolithic (300,000 years ago) to the Hellenistic Great Altar of Pergamon (second century BCE), the artifacts described here reflect the cyclical ups and downs of prosperity and poverty, and changing cultural and social norms from epoch to epoch. Beautifully illustrated with detailed photographs of each featured object, this is an absorbing introduction to a culture that has exerted an unparalleled influence on Western civilization.

Pocket Museum: Ancient Rome Virginia Campbell If all the portable artifacts of Ancient Rome were in a single location, the lives of students, historians, and connoisseurs would be immeasurably simpler. But the masterpieces are in museums all over the world. This book identifies 200 of the most important of these works, and describes them vividly and informatively in ways that reveal how each is a key object in its own right – a creation that commemorates a great event or heralds the start of a new era in creativity or politics. A rich array of photographs provides a close-up look at each piece. From coins of the fifth century BCE to pottery made at the time of the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 CE, each object reveals an important insight into this ancient civilization.

The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt Richard H. Wilkinson The temples of ancient Egypt include the largest and some of the most impressive religious monuments the world has ever known. Mansions of the gods, models of Egypt and of the universe, focal points for worship, great treasure houses and islands of order in a cosmic ocean of chaos – the temples were all these things and more. Richard Wilkinson traces their development from the earliest times, looking at every aspect of their construction, decoration, symbolism and function. From the Delta to Nubia, all of Egypt’s surviving temples – ranging from the gargantuan temple of Amun at Karnak, to minuscule shrines such as the oasis Oracle of Siwa, where Alexander went to hear himself proclaimed god – are discussed and illustrated here.

The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt Richard H. Wilkinson The gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt, worshipped for over half of recorded history, are among the most fascinating and complex of any civilization. Here is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the deities who lay at the heart of Egyptian religion and society. It examines the evolution, worship and eventual decline of the numerous gods and goddesses – from minor household figures such as Bes and Taweret to the all-powerful deities Amun and Re – who made Egypt the most completely theocratic society of the ancient world, and made Egyptians, according to Herodotus, ‘more religious than any other people’.

ARCHAEOLOGY

An informative and beautifully produced guide to the Nimrud ivories, one of the world’s most spectacular collections of ancient ivory, now largely lost as a result of conflict in the Middle East. Georgina Herrmann is Honorary Professor and Emeritus Reader in Near Eastern Studies at University College London. She directed the archaeological excavations at Merv, Turkmenistan, for over a decade.

322 illustrations 28.0 x 21.8 cm 208pp hardback ISBN 978 0 500 051917 June £40.00

Ancient Ivory Masterpieces of the Assyrian Empire Georgina Herrmann Ivory is a wonderful material: tactile, beautiful, workable into many different forms and the strongest in the animal kingdom. Unfortunately for the elephant, it has been highly prized from the Palaeolithic to the present day, in part by virtue of its rarity and the difficulty of acquiring it. During the early first millennium BC – the ‘Age of Ivory’ – literally thousands of carved ivories found their way to the Assyrian capital city of Kalhu, or modern Nimrud, in northern Iraq. The majority were not made there, in the heart of ancient Assyria, but arrived as gift, tribute or booty gathered by the Assyrian kings from the small neighbouring states of the ancient Middle Eastern world. The ivories were first unearthed in the mid-19th century by renowned Victorian traveller and adventurer Austen Henry Layard, but it was not until the mid-20th century that the extent of the treasure was realized by Max Mallowan, the archaeologist husband of Agatha Christie. Thousands of extraordinary ivories have since been excavated from the ruins of the ancient city’s extravagant palaces, temples and forts. In recent years, many have been destroyed or remain at risk following the invasion of Iraq and the sacking of the Iraq Museum, as well as in the ongoing conflict and destruction of cultural heritage in the region. As a result, the ivories preserved in these pages form a unique, unparalleled record of the otherwise lost art of the Middle East.

Gods and goddesses; mighty heroes and indomitable women; dragons, serpents and cosmic wolves; the great World-Tree, inhabited by magical and monstrous creatures… Through Carolyne Larrington’s vivid new translations from the Old Norse, we meet the inhabitants of a rich mythological cosmos face to face. Beginning with an account of the Norse myths’ origins and survival, the book continues by introducing the principal gods and goddesses – Óðinn (Odin), Loki, Þórr (Thor), Freyja, Heimdallr and the rest – before examining the gods’ powerful adversaries, the giants of ice and fire. According to the Norse creation myths, the world was born, and continued, in violence; two chapters are devoted to the (mis)adventures of the men and women of heroic legend and their sometimes unsettling conceptions of heroism and sacrifice. The last chapter is, fittingly, dedicated to ragnarök – the final conflict in which most of the gods will die and the world come to an end, with a hint at the possibility of rebirth. The Norse Myths offers fresh retellings of the vivid, often funny, almost always bloodthirsty tales of the Norse gods and heroes, and a satisfying exploration of their meaning and significance. The old stories have found new life in the work of Wagner, William Morris and J. R. R. Tolkien, and even in the reimagining of the fimbulvetr, or ‘Mighty Winter’, in Game of Thrones.


ARCHAEOLOGY

Two of the greatest living authorities on Ice Age art take the reader on a journey across the globe and hundreds of thousands of years into the past to discover the deepest origins of art. Michel Lorblanchet is a leading specialist in the field of Palaeolithic art. His Art pariétal: Grottes ornées du Quercy, the sum of 45 years of research, is considered the definitive work on the art of France’s Quercy region. Paul Bahn is co-author of Thames & Hudson’s bestselling Archaeology: Theories, Methods and Practice, and sole author of Images of the Ice Age, widely regarded as the standard introduction to cave art.

c. 80 illustrations 23.4 x 15.3 cm 296pp hardback ISBN 978 0 500 051870 May £19.95

The First Artists In Search of the World’s Oldest Art Michel Lorblanchet and Paul Bahn • Foreword by Pierre Soulages Where do we find the world’s very first art? When, and why, did people begin experimenting with different materials, forms and colours? Were our once-cousins, the Neanderthals, also capable of creating art? Prehistorians have been asking these questions of our ancestors for decades, but only very recently, with the development of cutting-edge scientific and archaeological techniques, have we been able to piece together the first chapter in the story of art. Overturning the traditional Eurocentric vision of our artistic origins, which has focused almost exclusively on the Franco-Spanish cave art, Michel Lorblanchet and Paul Bahn take the reader on a search for the earliest art across the whole world. They show that our earliest ancestors were far from being the creatively impoverished primitives of past accounts, and Europe was by no means the only ‘cradle’ of art; the artistic impulse developed in the human mind wherever it travelled. The long universal history of art mirrors the development of humanity.

While highly finished drawings and paintings frequently feature in histories of botanical art, the preparatory sketches, first impressions and creative thoughts on paper behind them are rarely seen and have often remained hidden and locked away. Filled with remarkable images from the unparalleled collections of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, many of them rarely reproduced before, Botanical Sketchbooks brings these personal and vividly spontaneous records gloriously back into the light. A series of biographical portraits offers a captivating glimpse into the firsthand experiences and adventures of around eighty artists – professional, amateur and accidental – from the 15th century to the 20th century and from around the world, including Leonardo da Vinci, Georg Dionysius Ehret, Carl Linnaeus, Maria Sibylla Merian, Hellen and Margaret Shelley and John James. Sketchbooks proper are joined by notebooks, journals, albums, loose pieces of paper, works on vellum, manuscripts, letters, herbarium sheets and marginalia – even one drawing on the back of an envelope. This book is an invitation to relive extraordinary experiences, imagine lost worlds, and become immersed in the endeavours, observations and motivations of the makers of beautiful and enchanting art.

Chronicling a quest for the soul of Mexico through the medium of its food, this book captures the essence and spirit of Mexican food history as well as a wide range of contemporary cooking styles in more than 100 entertaining, informative profiles. They represent a cross-section of walks of life and social classes: nuns; grandes dames; campesinos; barrio residents; creatives in the arts, architecture, music, film and media; businesspeople – and, of course, great chefs. The lively profiles are accompanied by specially commissioned photographs of both people and places, focusing the aesthetic interplay of visual and textual narratives. While food is at its heart, the lure of Mexico: A Culinary Quest is not just the featured personalities – their tables, their menus, their local specialities, their kitchens – but the country’s magnificent settings and landscape. From Yucatán to Tabasco, from Nuevo León to Chiapas, from famous watering holes to local holes in the wall, Mexico: A Culinary Quest is a feast for both the eyes and the intellect.
