His articles have appeared in The Observer and the Times Literary Supplement, to which he frequently contributes.

From one of the freshest and most exciting new voices in cultural criticism, a daring yet convincing analysis of 100 artworks that are destined to stand the test of time Just as Picasso’s Guernica and Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa survive as powerful cultural documents of their time, there will be works from our own era that will endure for generations to come. But which ones? Which contemporary artworks best capture the zeitgeist of the late 20th and early 21st centuries? This bold and engaging book predicts which artists and artworks from the past two decades will come to define our age through their power to question, provoke and inspire. Accessible and incisive texts offer a biography of each piece, tracing its inception and impact, and showing how it provides a unique keyhole not only into the imagination of the artist who created it but also into the age in which we live. This is essential and enjoyable reading for all those working with and studying contemporary culture, as well as for the general art-lover keen to find a clear path through the maze of global contemporary art.

El Greco Visionary of the Golden Age Fernando Marías Fernando Marías, Professor of Art History at Madrid’s Universidad Autónoma, is curator of the major El Greco anniversary exhibition to be held in Toledo in 2014.

An authoritative account of the life and work of El Greco, published to mark the 400th anniversary of the artist’s death Domenikos Theotokopoulos, known to us as El Greco, was one of the seminal figures of the Spanish Golden Age. Born in Crete in 1541 under Venetian rule, raised in the iconographic traditions of Byzantine art, and acquainted with both Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic practice, El Greco went to Venice and Rome in the late Renaissance, before finding patronage in Spain at the court of Philip II. He was a painter not only of religious subjects, but also of idiosyncratic portraits executed in his own uniquely dramatic and expressionistic style. He spent approximately half his life in Toledo, a city with which his name has become indelibly linked, although he was never fully accepted and was known there as a disputatious outsider. All this and more is detailed in this magnificent, richly illustrated book, which reproduces many recently cleaned and restored paintings, revealing hitherto unknown facets of his art.

Turner & the Sea Christine Riding and Richard Johns The first study to explore the full breadth of Turner’s lifelong preoccupation with the sea J.M.W. Turner dominated the art of the sea during the first half of the 19th century. In an age of global naval warfare and rapid technological change, the artist’s ceaselessly creative response to contemporary maritime affairs helped to redefine Britain’s cultural relationship with the sea. This beautifully illustrated book brings together many of Turner’s most celebrated seascapes, from his transformative Academy paintings of the late 1790s and early 1800s to the compelling and provocative marine subjects he produced in his final years. It reveals the full extent of the artist’s engagement with the sea, foregrounding important but rarely seen paintings and throwing new light on some of his most iconic works, including The Wreck of a Transport Ship, The Battle of Trafalgar and The Fighting ‘Temeraire’. It also examines the artist’s competitive response to the work of his contemporaries, including John Constable, Augustus Wall Callcott, Richard Parkes Bonington and Clarkson Stanfield, and explores the complex legacy of his seascapes through the maritime subjects of later British, European and American artists.

‘Oles provides a sweeping panorama of five rich and diverse centuries of Mexican art and architecture. The best and most up-to-date survey of its kind’ Alan Knight, Oxford University

Art and Architecture in Mexico World of Art James Oles is Senior Lecturer in Art at Wellesley College, Massachusetts, and adjunct curator of Latin American art at the college’s Davis Museum and Cultural Center.

£14.95 6 Art

James Oles A comprehensive survey of the full breadth and complexity of Mexican art history This new interpretive history of Mexican art and architecture from the Spanish Conquest to the early decades of the 21st century is the most comprehensive introduction to the subject in fifty years. James Oles ranges widely across media and genres, offering new readings of paintings, murals, sculptures, buildings, prints and photographs. He interprets major works by such famous artists as Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, but also discusses less familiar figures who were equally important in the construction of national identity. The story of Mexican art is set in its rich historical context by the book’s treatment of political and social change. The author draws on recent scholarship to examine crucial issues of race, class and gender, including an exploration of the work of indigenous artists during the colonial period, and of women artists in the 19th and 20th centuries. Throughout, Oles shows how artists in Mexico participated in local and international developments, and highlights the important role played by Mexicans in the art world of the last five hundred years.

£9.95

James Graham-Campbell The first book to cover the art of the Viking Age in an accessible yet authoritative text, written by a world expert The distillation of a lifetime’s study of Viking art by a leading scholar, this new account covers all the intricate and beautiful art styles of the so-called ‘Viking Age’. It ranges in time from the first major Viking expeditions overseas around AD 800 to the general establishment of Christianity in Scandinavia some 300 years later. An opening chapter gives the historical and geographical background. Thematic chapters then describe and discuss the six main Viking art styles, showing how they emerged from and interacted with one another. Delicate metalwork is contrasted with elaborate wood-carvings and the famous Gotland ‘picture-stones’, while we move in scale from the Oseberg ship to decorated weapons and fine jewelry. The book’s conclusion looks at the art in relation to pagan Viking mythology, the Conversion period and the Norse sagas as well as at its legacy in later times. With striking illustrations of all the different aspects of Viking art and detailed maps, this will become the definitive guide for all those interested in this vibrant art form and in Norse history.

Japonisme and the Rise of the Modern Art Movement The Arts of the Meiji Period Edited by Gregory Irvine Gregory Irvine is Senior Curator in the Asian department of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. He has published widely on many aspects of Japanese art, and has held senior teaching positions in the UK and Japan.

A study of the influence of Japanese Meiji art on the Modern Art movement in the West From the 1860s to the 1890s the rise of Japonisme and the Art Nouveau movement meant few could resist the obsession with all things Japanese. Superbly crafted and often highly decorated Japanese ceramics, lacquer and metalwork stimulated and inspired Western artists and craftsmen to produce their own works. Van Gogh, Whistler, Monet, Manet, Klimt and Schiele were all, to varying degrees, influenced by the arts of Japan. Van Gogh himself stated that he owed his inspiration to Japanese art, but he was probably not conscious of the full extent to which art in Europe had already been influenced by that of Japan. In this book, six noted scholars examine the wider influence of Japanese art and design in Europe with superlative examples from the Khalili Collection, the world’s finest collection of works from the Meiji period. They demonstrate that the Japanese influence on modern Western art has been far more penetrating than has been widely recognized.

Japanese Erotic Art The Hidden World of Shunga Ofer Shagan Foreword by Andrew Gerstle Ofer Shagan is an art collector who has lived for many years in Japan. Works from his remarkable shunga collection of over 7,000 items have been exhibited at several museums, and he has published widely on the subject. Andrew Gerstle is Professor of Japanese Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Over 1,000 colour illustrations 27.5 x 22.0cm 472pp Special binding with hand stitching ISBN 978 0 500 291177 October

£45.00

The ultimate book on shunga – comprehensive, beautifully produced and visually spectacular Japanese erotic art or shunga has a long history, with thousands of highquality paintings, prints, handscrolls and illustrated books produced mostly from the late 17th to the 19th centuries. Frequently explicit, but also tender, sensuous and humorous, even educational, shunga – a euphemism meaning ‘picture of spring’ – celebrates all facets of human sexuality. In a dazzling diversity of images drawn from his own unrivalled collection, Ofer Shagan shows us the full spectrum of sexual practice and expression, including nudity and clothing, voyeurism, gods, monsters and animals, orgasm, adultery and jealousy, and much else. For a long time shunga has remained taboo, excluded from scholarship, but this ambitious book returns these wonderful artworks to their rightful place in the history of Japanese art, culture and society. With over 1,000 illustrations, all specially photographed and many rarely or never published previously, this beautifully produced book explores the intimate riches of shunga in a way no other publication has done before.

£195 £250

A superior edition of one of the pre-eminent artists’ books in the history of modern art, an essential collectable By 1947, Matisse – in his seventies and suffering poor health – much preferred the simple, fluid act of cutting forms from painted paper to drawing or painting. It was his intention to use this assemblage technique to illustrate a collection of poems, which would be printed as a limited edition book. As this project evolved, Matisse’s notes, written with a paintbrush in looping letters, became integral, and the publisher agreed that they should replace the poems. They appear here in their original ‘rough’ form, creating a visual counterpoint to the images. Jazz is regarded as one of Matisse’s greatest achievements, its original illustrations still exhibited as significant works in their own right. This edition is accompanied by a special book mounted on the reverse of the presentation box’s cover, featuring both a translation of Matisse’s text and two new essays: one examining Jazz’s principal place among other artists’ books; the other surveying the history of artist’ books as a field. Any admirer of modern art (or indeed bookmaking) will be proud to own a reproduction with such uncompromising production qualities throughout.

How to Read Impressionist Painting James Rubin James Rubin is Professor of Art History at The State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he was department chair for fifteen years.

c. 600 colour illustrations 24.0 x 16.8cm 400pp flexibound ISBN 978 0 500 970577 October

A dynamic exploration of the enormously popular art movement How to Read Impressionist Painting is a new, original exploration of the 19th-century movement that changed art forever, and made household names of such painters as Monet, Renoir, Degas, Seurat and Cassatt. James Rubin organizes this new look at the movement by subject matter, rather than by artist or chronologically, looking at urban views and city life, interiors and still life, family and friends, and other common themes. In discussing Impressionism in this manner, he provides readers with the tools to think critically and analytically about the movement, and offers a new understanding of the collective momentum that drove the artists to work with such originality and commitment to modern themes. Through close readings and comparisons of specific paintings, and a wealth of illustrations, Rubin establishes links between the broad visual culture of the period and the various Impressionist artists, and within the artists’ own careers. The entire history of Impressionism is covered, in an entirely new way.

The Letters of Paul Cézanne Edited and translated by Alex Danchev Alex Danchev is the author of a number of acclaimed biographies, including Cézanne: A Life and Georges Braque: A Life. He writes regularly for the Times Literary Supplement and Times Higher Education. Danchev is currently Professor of International Relations at the University of Nottingham.

£29.95

A landmark in Cézanne studies by the author of the highly acclaimed biography Cézanne: A Life, this new translation and thorough reappraisal of the letters will be the reference for decades to come Cézanne is the exemplary artist-creator of the modern age. Misunderstood by his peers but lauded by later generations as the ‘father of modern art’, he has long been a subject of fascination for artists and art lovers, writers, poets and philosophers. A singular thinker and an uncompromising seeker after artistic truth, Cézanne channelled a large part of his wide-ranging intellect and ferocious wit into his letters. Over 250 examples survive, to family, friends and major figures from the literary and art worlds. Punctuated by exasperated theorizing and philosophical reflection, outbursts of creative ecstasy and melancholic confession, the letters reveal both the heroic and the all-toohuman qualities of the greatest artist of modern times. This new translation, by the acclaimed biographer Alex Danchev, is based on a thorough re-examination of the original manuscripts. It clears up decades of questionable scholarship and includes over twenty previously unpublished letters. The correspondence is richly annotated and cross-referenced to the current catalogue raisonné and other monuments of recent scholarship. More than seventy illustrations – sketches, autograph letters and key works discussed by Cézanne – add to the vivid presence of the artist on every page. Danchev’s great achievement is to allow readers in English to hear Cézanne’s voice for the first time in his own idiomatic, idiosyncratic style. And he sounds rather different from the Cézanne we thought we knew – richer, wittier, wiser, more philosophical, more irascible, above all more fully human. The letters offer fresh perspectives on his artistic vision, politics, friendships, psychology, philosophy, literary tastes and classical frame of reference. They provide an intimate insight into the preoccupations and personality of a legend. Art 13

A benchmark survey that illuminates the formative influence of Lake George in the life and art of Georgia O’Keeffe Although O’Keeffe is usually associated with the desert landscape of New Mexico, her professional development as an artist largely occurred during the sixteen years she summered at Alfred Stieglitz’s family estate at Lake George, in the Adirondack mountains of upstate New York. In more than seventy colour plates, this book celebrates the body of work created by O’Keeffe at Lake George, accompanied by rarely seen photographs by Alfred Stieglitz and members of his circle. Illustrated essays explore the impact of Lake George on her early career, the importance of the trees and local landscape on her work, and her emergence as an influential female artist during this period. Modern Nature looks behind the public façade O’Keeffe created for herself in her later career, revealing a surprisingly different portrait of this widely mythologized artist. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Georgia O’Keeffe and the history of American art.

£35.00

The most complete monograph ever published on the internationally acclaimed South African artist Reproducing nearly 200 of William Kentridge’s artworks made since 1989 in more than 2,000 illustrations, this book is the fullest exploration yet of the artist’s diverse expressions across a wide range of media. It reveals Kentridge’s dynamic way of working in his Johannesburg studio, a creative process that can be described as an act of performance during which he searches for ways to express his powerful ideas. This process follows the principle of ‘fortuna’, a principle not subject to rational control but, in the words of the artist himself, one in which there is ‘neither programme nor chance in the making of images’. Kentridge’s own lively commentaries accompany his works, while essays by Lilian Tone and Kate McCrickard put his practice into wider context, investigating the conceptual and visual tendencies in Kentridge’s work, and the relationship between his art and his native South Africa. Supplemented by a bibliography and chronology, William Kentridge: Fortuna is a rich and compelling survey of one of the most significant artists at work today. Art 15

£32.00 16 Art

An interpretation of the Kabbalah as a source of evocative ideas that have either inspired, or are illustrated by, significant works of art and architecture The Kabbalistic idea of creation, as expressed through light, space and geometry, has left its unmistakable mark on our civilization. Drawing upon a wide array of historical materials and images of contemporary art, sculpture and architecture, architect Alexander Gorlin explores the influence, whether actually acknowledged or not, of the Kabbalah on modern design. Gorlin brings light to the translation of the mystical philosophy into a physical form, drawing clear comparisons between philosophy and design that will excite and exalt. Comprising ten chapters that each outline key concepts of the Kabbalah and its representations, both in historic diagrams and the modern built environment, Kabbalah in Art and Architecture puts forth an unparalleled and compelling reinterpretation of art and architecture through the lens of the Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism. A chapter on the Golem, and an epilogue that discusses German artist Anselm Kiefer’s powerful interpretations of the Kabbalah, complete this unique book.

Over 150 colour illustrations 25.4 x 22.9cm c. 192pp ISBN 978 0 500 093788 October

£29.95

An anthology of Balthus’s famously ambiguous paintings Balthus was a master of conveying the ambivalence that is part of adolescence. The children in his paintings are usually withdrawn, self-absorbed and unsmiling; they while away their time in rooms closed to the outside world, cats their sole playmates. This book reproduces scores of paintings by Balthus dating from the mid-1930s to the 1950s, a period that saw him create the celebrated series of portraits of Thérèse Blanchard. In Switzerland during World War II, Balthus replaced the austerity of his Paris studio with more colourful interiors in which different nymphets continue to daydream, read or nap. The book concludes with images that he created of his niece, Frédérique Tison, during the 1950s. In her introduction to the book, Sabine Rewald recounts the artist’s precocious childhood and youth, and shows how his penchant for focusing on the ambiguities of adolescence relates to writers and poets who also explored that theme, among them Lewis Carroll, Rainer Maria Rilke, Thomas Mann and Jean Cocteau. The text is enlivened by the memories of a number of models who sat for Balthus during the 1940s, and shared them with Rewald many years later. Art 17

Brings together, for the first time, the poignant, provocative reimaginings of the still life by over 180 international contemporary artists This richly rewarding and timely book reveals how leading artists of the 21st century have reinvigorated the still life, a genre previously synonymous with the 16th- and 17th-century Old Masters. The audacious still lifes celebrated in this publication challenge that historical supremacy and will redefine what it means to be a work of nature morte, or ‘dead nature’. Whether their medium be painting, photography, sculpture, video or other forms of practice, contemporary artists have drawn on a tradition that is ripe with metaphorical and moral significance to create works of conceptual vivacity, striking beauty and emotional poignancy. Michael Petry has structured the publication according to the classic categories of the still-life tradition – Flora, Food, House and Home, Fauna and Death. Each chapter explores how the timeless symbolic resonance of the memento mori – a reminder of death, change and the passing of time – has been rediscovered for a new millennium. Art 19

The first substantial overview on Broodthaers in a generation Marcel Broodthaers filled his twelve-year artistic career with more ideas and works than most artists manage in a lifetime. This career began in 1964, following a period of more than two decades labouring in some obscurity as a poet in the Belgian Surrealist circle of René Magritte and Paul Nougé. He also wrote articles on art during these years, including early critiques of Pop art. Traversing media freely – from installation and sculpture to artist’s books, prints, film and writings – Broodthaers embodied the ‘post-media artist’ for whom any form could be recruited in the service of a larger conception. Those conceptions included institutional critique (of which he is a pioneer), art-historical critique, pastiche and philosophical-linguistic puzzles. Edited by Broodthaers’ daughter Marie-Puck, and with a range of both classic and never-before-seen works, a biography, exhibition chronology and a selected bibliography, this volume is the largest and most authoritative Broodthaers monograph ever published.

This follow-up to the immensely successful Sanctuary surveys 115 American artists and the current American art scene Contrasting visits to artists’ studios with explorations of the United States’ inspirational, sweeping landscapes, Art Studio America provides a privileged look at the dreams, ideas and thoughts of 115 artists practising today. While the world may know their work well, they have rarely, if ever, allowed their personal landscapes to be traversed in such an intimate manner and against the backdrop, both literal and figurative, of their country’s larger environment. Essays by Robert Storr, Mark Godfrey and Ben Genocchio augment the specially photographed artists’ profiles, which cover such established figures as Marina Abramovic, John Baldessari, Francesco Clemente, Chuck Close, John Currin, Rachel Feinstein, Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Julian Schnabel, Kiki Smith and Bill Viola, as well as the up-and-coming new guard. From New York’s hurricane-battered skyline to Southern California’s hazily sunny boardwalks, Art Studio America offers readers the chance to embark on transformative journeys of their own.

The first monograph to explore and analyse Kiefer’s studios as the key to his artistic creation Gaining entry to a painter’s atelier is a rare privilege. Beyond their obvious practical functions as production and storage spaces, artists’ studios are also physical representations of the mind and memory of an artist, where living and working spaces combine. In this superbly illustrated volume, Danièle Cohn, who has worked alongside Anselm Kiefer for many years, explains the central role the artist’s studios play in his artistic process. She reveals how Kiefer’s ateliers – their layout and organization, and their location – are intrinsic to his work as a painter and sculptor. The reader is taken on an exploration of Kiefer’s ateliers around the world and shown the crucial role they have in the creation of his works. From the attic of a former school and a disused brickyard in Germany, via ateliers in the rural south of France and the urban setting of Le Marais in Paris, to his current studio in Croissy-Beaubourg on the outskirts of the capital, we discover how Anselm Kiefer’s work spaces have influenced his art.

The definitive story of the clothes, the labels, the movements and the music that shook the very foundations of society Fashion in the sixties was radical, revolutionary – like nothing the world had ever seen. An unprecedented explosion of youth culture – Diana Vreeland’s famous ‘youthquake’ – led to a demand for informal but stylish clothes, and self-expression became paramount. From the mods in London and the yé-yé scene in Paris, to the flower children in San Francisco in the US, subcultures took fashion into their own hands and changed the world’s style from the bottom up. Mary Quant and André Courrèges were famous for raising hemlines, but as Quant herself said, ‘it was the girls in the street who did it’. Jonathan Walford charts these revolutions in this richly illustrated history in which period advertisements, images of clothes and first-hand accounts from contemporary publications bring high fashion and low fashion, and everything in between, vividly to life. This beautifully designed volume is the essential sourcebook for professionals and retro enthusiasts alike, and will be treasured by all dedicated followers of fashion.

The ultimate repertoire of wit and wisdom from fashion’s sharpest pin Karl Lagerfeld is a modern master of couture. He is also famously outspoken: his wise, surprising statements pop up like offbeat news flashes. This collection of quotations pays homage to the legendary éminence grise of the fashion world. Lagerfeld’s pronouncements – on fashion, women, art, politics, love, and life high and low – are famously oracular, seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes and sages around the world. Created with the full approval of the designer himself, this cornucopia of Lagerfeld’s maxims is required reading for us all today as we negotiate the trickiest curves of modern life. Cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, sometimes shocking, Lagerfeld’s ‘bons mots’ are always impossible to ignore.

She is a contributor to Nick Knight’s ShowStudio, and has served as historical fashion consultant to journalists writing for the New York Times, Slate and The Guardian.

£19.95

The first book to focus on Lee Miller’s work as a model and fashion photographer, illuminating both her life and the history of fashion from the late 1920s to the early 1950s Muse, surrealist and war photographer, Lee Miller was also one of the 20th century’s most important female fashion photographers – yet her work in the field of fashion remains little known. This book redresses the balance by exploring her unprecedented contributions as both model and fashion photographer to the century’s leading fashion magazine, Vogue. Lee Miller’s transition from one side of the camera to the other was unprecedented, and her fashion self-portraits for Vogue, in which she was simultaneously model and photographer, are unique in the history of fashion photography. The story of Lee Miller in fashion is also the story of an amazing creative community in New York, London and Paris, as well as the changes that rocked the world in these glittering, then tumultuous decades. Becky E. Conekin seamlessly intertwines this fascinating history with Miller’s life and accomplishments, as well as those of her friends and peers, including Edward Steichen, Man Ray and Picasso. The result is a vivid, beautifully illustrated read about one of the century’s true individuals. Fashion 33

The story of the worldwide textile trade in the Age of Discovery Beginning in the 16th century, the golden age of European navigation brought about the flowering of an abundant textile trade. While previous studies have focused on this story from the viewpoint of trade, Interwoven Globe is the first book to explore it as a history of design – and to approach it from a truly universal perspective. Richly illustrated texts explore the inter-relationship of textiles, commerce and taste from the Age of Discovery to the 19th century, and 120 works from around the globe are discussed in detail. From India’s cotton goods to the silks of Japan and China, Turkey and Iran, the paths of influence are traced westward to Europe and the Americas. Essential to this exchange was the trade in natural dyes and dye products, underscoring the impact of global exploration on the aesthetics and techniques used to produce textiles. Shaped by an emerging worldwide visual culture, the resulting fashion for the ‘exotic’ in textiles, as well as other goods and art forms, gave rise to what can be called the first global style.

Cashmere A French Passion Monique Lévi-Strauss Monique Lévi-Strauss’s passion for cashmere was first sparked by the chance discovery of a 19th-century shawl at a flea market in the 1950s. Since then, she has devoted her life to researching the textile and all things associated with it.

The story of the French cashmere shawls of the 19th century and their rise to the heights of fashion The delicate beauty of the cashmere shawl was first brought to Europe by the East India Companies and Napoleon’s campaigns. Woven in Kashmir, its fabric was so light that, according to legend, a whole shawl could be passed through a finger ring. By the 19th century these shawls were highly sought-after in France; French manufacturers soon saw that there was a market for more accessibly priced versions and started to create their own. Monique Lévi-Strauss has spent more than thirty years collecting and studying these shawls and gathering rare documents to preserve their forgotten history. This completely revised, expanded and redesigned edition of her classic book on the subject illustrates nearly 300 of these beautiful items, superbly photographed to showcase their splendid original designs, alongside a wealth of archive material and contemporary paintings that show them being worn by their elegant owners. This treasure trove of shawls will not only delight textile scholars and costume historians, but is sure to appeal to anyone who loves gorgeous accessories. Fashion 37

The Sasanian fragments reproduced in the book fill a substantial gap in our knowledge of the early history of pile carpets dating from the second to the eighth century AD, and make a valuable contribution to the understanding of local artistic traditions. The second half of the book is devoted to post-Sasanian and Sogdian silks from the sixth to the tenth centuries. A wave of these beautiful textiles has reached the West since the turn of the 21st century, and here they are divided into variants featuring birds, mammals and mythological creatures, which retain their glowing colours and lively charm.

A magnificent visual presentation of Islamic geometric designs in their architectural and historical context, with clear, detailed explanations of how the patterns were created Islamic geometric designs are admired worldwide for their beauty and marvellous intricacy, yet in truth they are seldom understood. Indeed, their complexity and artistry can seem almost beyond the powers of human ingenuity. In this handsomely illustrated volume, artist and teacher Eric Broug analyses and explains these complex designs in their historical and physical context. His own original drawings accompany magnificent photographs of mosques, madrasas, palaces and tombs from the Islamic world, ranging from North Africa to Iran and Uzbekistan, and from the 8th to the 19th centuries. Chapters are devoted to each of the main ‘families’ of geometric design, and illustrated with a wealth of stunning photographs and clear, meticulously detailed drawings. Readers can follow the design processes by which these patterns were created and even learn to reproduce and invent geometric patterns for themselves, using exactly the same tools as the Islamic craftsmen of old: a ruler and a pair of compasses.

She considers signets; rings associated with love, marriage and friendship; devotional, protective and ecclesiastical rings; memento mori and memorial rings; rings associated with famous people and great events; decorative rings; diamond rings; and rings as accessories. She makes us delight in them as works of art, as well as making their context come alive through paintings, drawings and vivid quotations.

Family and Court Stefano Papi A revised and expanded edition of this magnificent and successful survey of the Romanov jewels, published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Romanov dynasty in 1613 The Romanovs ruled Russia from 1613 to 1917, when the Revolution brought their reign to an abrupt end. The late 19th and early 20th centuries were a time of elegance and extravagance for the tsars and the wealthy families with whom they were linked by marriage, and nowhere are these lavish tastes more apparent than in the imperial jewels. Every jewel tells a story. Through his extensive research, Stefano Papi has spent years unravelling the mysteries of Russian imperial jewelry. He has identified pieces with little or unknown provenance, and uncovers the fascinating stories behind the jewels and the people who wore them. He takes us through the golden years, and – after the Revolution – he follows the survivors of the Romanov line, and their jewelry, in European courts and in Paris, where many exiles sought refuge.

A wonderful evocation of a lost world of high society and the jewels that were collected by famous women of the period For many centuries the collecting of jewels was the preserve of royalty. But in the aftermath of the First World War, royal gems passed into the hands of a different kind of elite that included celebrities from the silver screen and a coterie that revelled in a new-rich social whirl. Eleven of these glamorous women, who built up astonishing jewelry collections in the early and mid-20th century, are profiled in this book. They range from the legendary Marjorie Merriweather Post and her niece, the heiress Barbara Hutton, to the Duchess of Windsor, the Maharani of Baroda and the great diva Maria Callas, as well as less well-known but fascinating figures such as the mysterious and beautiful Nina Dyer. The authors vividly bring to life the worlds in which these women moved – exotic travel, grand houses and extravagant parties – describing the gems in detail and providing portraits of the work of the leading jewelers of the day. The book is illustrated with close-up shots of the jewels as well as wonderful drawings of the original designs, and includes portraits of the women by Beaton, Horst and other leading photographers of the time.

An invitation to roam in the endlessly fascinating collections of ten fine English country houses This beautiful book showcases ten outstanding British country houses all still in the hands of descendants of the original owners. They range 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, to a ducal palace and car-crazed Goodwood House. James Peill recounts the ups and downs of such deep-rooted clans as the Cracrofts, 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 Biddulphs, who constructed the Arts & Crafts masterpiece Rodmarton 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. The English Country House is an inspiring sourcebook for lovers of old houses.

A private tour of the remarkable homes of the world’s great couturiers, stylists, muses and fashion personalities Some of the most celebrated figures of fashion – Chanel, Alaïa, Blahník, Yves Saint Laurent, Pucci, Kenzo and Missoni – are known for their public image and their outstanding designs. But what kind of world have they cultivated behind closed doors? Ivan Terestchenko’s intimate photographs revel in the décor, works of art and the personal collections of some of the world’s most inspirational fashion figures. Some interiors, such as Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment at 31 rue Cambon, Paris, are legendary, while others are wildly unconventional. For some, home is a sanctuary, for others a place of reflection and inspiration; but in every case, the surroundings of these creative spirits reveal their enjoyment of textiles, art, space and light. From Nicole Farhi’s Queen Anne house in the heart of Hampstead to Giorgio Armani’s luxurious alpine retreat and Loulou de la Falaise’s deceptively simple French farmhouse, here is an inspiring first-hand tour of the spaces and places created by some of fashion’s biggest names.

The ultimate inspiration for anyone wanting to foster their own style: here is a collection of ‘real homes’ that are a reflection of their owners’ personalities and interests rather than a homage to current trends Through her sensitive and perceptive photographs, Solvi dos Santos shows how to make living spaces that satisfy fundamental needs, but are also private works of beauty and self-expression, whether a warehouse in Paris, a converted church in the Hudson Valley, New York, or a farmhouse in Ibiza. So how do you create a stylish home of your very own? Real Homes takes you through room by room and shows you spaces that are original, functional and aesthetically pleasing, whether through the mixing of materials, periods or genres. What oozes from the pages is an effortless style and a sense of everyday living – pertinent today when many of us are looking at ways to live more simply. This book resonates with bold imagination and a refreshingly broad vision, appealing to everyone who is seeking a source of ideas for creating a home that breaks away from the stereotypical sterile approach – one that is both a place with spirit and has that essential spirit of place.

A lavish survey of an icon of Renaissance architecture An opulent pleasure palace for rest and entertainment, the Palazzo Te is the masterpiece of Renaissance artist, designer and architect Giulio Romano, the most accomplished and favoured of all Raphael’s pupils. Built for Federico II Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, between 1525 and 1536, the Palazzo’s interiors are decorated with spectacular frescoes of themes from ancient myth. Showing richly imaginative scenes and trompe l’oeil fantasies, they depict gods and heroes, fictive marble statues and portraits of the Duke’s favourite thoroughbreds. From the erotic scenes of the Chamber of Psyche to the famous Chamber of the Giants, based on the defeat of the Titans by the gods of Olympus, the High Renaissance ideal of classical harmony and balance is overtaken by breathtaking illusionist techniques, with images of giants, falling masonry and the gods’ thunderbolts filling the visitor’s imagination. Ugo Bazzotti takes the reader through the halls, courtyards and gardens that constitute this elaborate masterpiece of Mannerist decoration, explaining its history and the inventiveness and versatility of its creator.

The definitive architectural history of the library The finest libraries are repositories not just of books, but also of learning, creativity and contemplation; they embody some of the highest achievements of humankind. In its highest form the library is a total work of art that combines painting, sculpture, furniture and architecture into seamless, dramatic spaces. From their designs for the libraries of ancient Rome to those of the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, architects have sought to outdo each other by producing ever more spectacular creations. Each age and culture reinvented the library, moulding it to reflect its own priorities, and in the process mirroring the history of civilization itself. In its ambition and scope, this book is in a league of its own. The author and photographer have travelled the globe together, visiting and documenting some eighty libraries. James Campbell’s account of them is authoritative and highly readable, while Will Pryce’s photographs are both lucid and deeply atmospheric. Together they have produced a landmark book – the first single volume to tell the story of the library around the world, from the beginnings of writing to the present day. Architecture 65

A magnificent survey of the staircase in all its forms This volume showcases the astonishing diversity of staircases over the centuries, from the stepped pyramids of the Maya to the exquisitely proportioned stairs of the Renaissance, to the elaborate balustraded confections of the Baroque period, to the computer-aided designs of today. A dazzling range of photographs, many specially taken for this book, illustrates chronologically ordered essays. Among the scores of featured staircases are Michelangelo’s double stair at the Palazzo dei Senatori on the Capitoline Hill in Rome; the double-spiral stair at Château de Chambord in the Loire Valley; the entrance stair in the Winter Palace (now the Hermitage) in St Petersburg; the radical spiral ramp of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum; and the exterior stair at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. The authors also explore the magical and symbolic meanings of the staircase. Powerful emblems of technological and artistic achievement, these staircases are inherently dynamic, as is every page of this fascinating and beautifully illustrated book.

‘This is in fact a manifesto. It encapsulates what I regard as the fundamental value – and values – of architecture’ Richard Rogers

Architecture: A Modern View Available again Richard Rogers is perhaps best known for his work on the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Lloyd’s building and Millennium Dome (both in London), and the European Court of Human Rights building in Strasbourg. He is a winner of the RIBA Gold Medal, the Thomas Jefferson Medal, the RIBA Stirling Prize, the Minerva Medal and the Pritzker Prize.

Richard Rogers A small book of big ideas from one of the most distinguished and inventive architects at work in the world today Originally published as part of Thames & Hudson’s highly respected Walter Neurath Memorial Lecture series, this book is reissued on the occasion of the architect’s 80th birthday and to coincide with the Royal Academy exhibition showing from 18 July to 13 October 2013. Richard Rogers has always been a frequent commentator on the contemporary urban realm, and it is especially valuable to have his philosophy of design so succinctly summarized in this book. He explores how the crisis of modern architecture is part of a much larger crisis involving the whole question of the way we live and how we use the resources of our planet, and puts forward his belief that poor design, monotony and inhuman scale are the results not of lack of talent nor the failures of the Modern Movement, but of a surrender to selfish interests and short-sighted economies. His book is illustrated largely by examples drawn from his own work, making it a professional record as well as a manifesto for the future.

The defining book on Le Corbusier, revealing the ways in which he observed and imagined landscapes throughout his career Le Corbusier is often remembered as having been indifferent to the sites in which he inserted his buildings and plans. However, a new generation of research reveals that, in keeping with his proposition that ‘the outside is always an inside’, all of Le Corbusier’s projects responded emphatically to specific geographies. His sketchbooks, letters and publications confirm that he was deeply involved with both optical and physical relationships to landscapes – in observing them, rendering them and building them. This book examines Le Corbusier’s relationship with the landscapes of five continents, in some fifty essays by thirty of the foremost scholars of his work. From his beginnings in Switzerland, as a disciple of the regional style sapin in his hometown of La Chaux-de-Fonds, to the creation of the new Indian city of Chandigarh; from touring Europe in his Avions Voisin automobile to mapping South America from the air; from inserting grand plans into existing urban layouts to setting the Ronchamp chapel on an isolated hill in France, Le Corbusier created forms that responded to the horizons and welcomed them in.

Introduction by Aaron Betsky An affordably priced, fully updated overview of the world’s most exciting architect Zaha Hadid is one of the most innovative and celebrated architects working in the world today. Born in Iraq, raised in London and recipient of the coveted Pritzker Architecture Prize (and twice winner of the UK’s Stirling Prize), Hadid has transformed our experience of space and architecture. This comprehensive volume of over 200 projects – from the earliest experimentations to product design, from follies to large-scale built works, including the recently completed London 2012 Aquatics Centre, Guangzhou Opera House in China and Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum in Michigan – is a testament to the depth, range and excitement of her vision. The works, organized in chronological order over Hadid’s thirty-year career, are introduced by critic and museum director Aaron Betsky, who examines Hadid’s output both in the context of architectural history and as a manifestation of the current and future state of architecture. This book remains the essential survey on and insight into the working mind of one of the world’s great architects. Architecture 71

An engaging and indepth overview of one of the most creative and deeply thoughtful architects at work in the world today Byoung Cho, widely considered to be Korea’s most important architect, aims to make each of his buildings ‘so it looks like it’s not designed at all, it’s just there’. Influenced by Korea’s rich aesthetic tradition, Cho utilizes understated forms to create serene buildings with a high regard for nature and sustainability, that yield powerful and subtle experiences for their inhabitants. He has created many buildings, cultural centres, schools, health facilities and residences throughout Korea, Japan and the United States. This book features over twenty-five of Cho’s most highly acclaimed projects, including Twin Trees (2010), his instantly iconic towers located adjacent to the 14th-century royal Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul. The Twin Trees embody Cho’s fascination with the relationship between ancient history and modernity in the context of both Korea and the world at large. The projects are accompanied throughout by sketches and plans, providing a comprehensive insight into the making of these buildings. Byoung Cho will be inspiring reading for all architects, architectural students and those interested in sustainability and the built environment.

£42.00

A uniquely in-depth view of a contemporary masterpiece As Chief Executive at Foster & Partners, Graham Phillips has had responsibility for the design and construction of some of the world’s most iconic buildings. But it was a small house in the fields of Buckinghamshire that sent him back to the drawing board, and to his investigations as a student into ‘a search for form’. Skywood has been called a house that ‘offers a masterclass in architecture’s power to excite and inspire’. It also became a favoured setting for television and film producers: it is known as the ‘Va Va Voom’ house for its appearance in the 2005 Renault Clio advert featuring football star Thierry Henry. This book offers a uniquely in-depth view of Skywood, and places it alongside Phillips’s other residential projects. Texts by Phyllis Richardson, Kenneth Powell and Graham Phillips accompany evocative photography, plans and working drawings. These illustrations, combined with Graham Phillips’s explanation of his own design philosophy, give both a full and intimate portrait of the creation of this iconic building. Architecture 73

Introduction by Alastair Duncan

A jaunty cavalcade of international poster design Posters by their very nature are ephemeral: crookedly plastered on a roadside billboard, tacked to the back of a tabac, they lasted a few weeks until advertisers issued another imaginative argument for soap or an ocean voyage. While few contemporary observers understood the richness of their design or appreciated the ingenuity of their unsung creators, they are now highly prized. William Crouse, long-time poster aficionado, has selected over 300 of the most sought-after examples of poster art created between the wars to include in this definitive volume. Organized thematically into subject categories (aviation, communication, fashion and more), The Art Deco Poster includes highly rare and even unique examples by masters of the art form, including Nizzoli, Cassandre and Beall. Each poster – digitally photographed under carefully controlled conditions – is accompanied by an expanded caption that addresses the aesthetic, sociological, economic, and/or political context of the image. Introduced by Art Deco specialist Alastair Duncan, The Art Deco Poster is an essential addition for all interested in graphic design, Art Deco, and life and culture between 1919 and 1939.

A retrospective of a distinguished graphic designer, influential on both sides of the Atlantic A consistent vision pervades the design endeavours of Philippe Apeloig. Over time, he has crafted a visual language strongly connected to rhythm, structure, pattern, space and choreography, a language that invites us to wander through a thicket of letters, lines and shapes that coalesce into something magical. Apeloig’s career began in 1985 when he designed the poster for the Musée d’Orsay’s first exhibition, ‘Chicago, Birth of a Metropolis’. He has since created many more seminal posters and his own typefaces, including Octobre and Drop. This book, published to accompany a major exhibition at the Musée des Art Décoratifs, Paris, surveys and explores the entirety of Apeloig’s graphic design process and philosophy, reproducing posters, logos, visual identities, books and animations, and analysing the influences that fuel his work. It will be required reading for anyone concerned with the recent history of graphic design. Design 79

Marian Bantjes’s first complete monograph, revealing the astonishing range of her graphic design, typography and illustration over the past decade From a remote cabin off Canada’s Pacific coast, Marian Bantjes has created a unique visual language that combines typographical craftsmanship, illustrative flair and personal observation. Her generous approach, meticulous attention to detail and wit have made her one of the most sought-after graphic artists of her generation. Presented loosely chronologically and with candid commentary throughout, this large-scale book traces Bantjes’s fascinating trajectory from her early work as a typesetter to her adoption of digital technologies that push conventional print production to the limit. It examines the way she works, collaborates and creates her ‘pretty pictures’, echoing the wry cultural observation and design comment that marked her seminal I Wonder publication. Brimming with insights, inspiration and – of course – glorious illustrations, this is a goldmine of ideas and approaches for students and professionals. Design 81

A cutting-edge global survey of fresh contemporary illustration talent and a daring experiment in creative collaboration Illustration is experiencing a remarkable renaissance. Young illustrators are no longer regarded as the poor relations of artists, photographers and designers, and their work – engagingly human, delightfully witty and intricately hand-rendered – is at the forefront of visual culture. This outstanding book brings together the dazzling talent of fifty illustrators from over twenty countries, among them Julia Rothman, Whitney Sherman and Mike Perry, and hands them the opportunity to indulge in a brilliant, creative experiment. The book is curated into two interleaved strands: in the first, each illustrator showcases their own work and is interviewed by the author to shine a light onto what inspires and motivates them. The second strand is a collaborative project with illustrators working in pairs to create original work to one of 25 briefs from the author. Each of the outstanding collaborations is accompanied by a joint interview with the two illustrators. As a result, half the work featured has never been seen before and has been created exclusively for this book. Design 83

An intimate portrait of one of Britain’s most influential filmmakers – a cult in his lifetime; a cult today There are few more complete examples of an artist’s record of their own life than the intimately detailed and beautifully produced books that Derek Jarman created throughout his career. Seen together they reveal the story of how he gathered, shaped and made concrete his ideas. Containing poetry, drawings, pressed flowers, photographs, scripts and notes, the sketchbooks are part autobiography and part social history, bursting with the energy and creativity of this groundbreaking artist. Wholly private during his lifetime, these precious books reveal the detailed planning, and creative and emotional engagement, behind each of his films. This book collates the best of Jarman’s sketchbooks to reveal his filmmaking process in more depth than ever before. Contributions from people closely tied to Jarman’s work bring to life the filmmaker’s social circle and the cultural climate of Britain in the 1970s and 80s. Excerpts from early scripts, sketches and notes in particular ensure this is destined to be an essential work. Film 89

A visual journey through cinema history from an author hailed by John Banville as ‘the greatest living writer on the movies’ It’s rare that a critic writing about a moment, or moments, on film has the opportunity to show them simultaneously to his readers. In Moments that Made the Movies, with its dynamic combination of text and image, David Thomson does just that. Focusing in on one scene, or even a few seconds of celluloid, his book both finds and displays those uniquely revealing moments in a roster of films, both widely familiar and nearly forgotten. Thomson’s moments range from a set of Eadweard Muybridge’s pioneering photographs to sequences in films from the classic – Citizen Kane, Sunset Boulevard and The Red Shoes – to the unexpected – The Piano Teacher, Burn After Reading – immersing the reader via the marriage of imagery and the author’s accompanying narrative. The excitement of the book’s dynamic visuals will be matched only by the discussion it incites in film circles, as readers revisit their own list of memorable moments and then re-experience the films – both those included on Thomson’s list and from their own life – as never before.

Thrilling, first-hand accounts by men and women who are the modern heirs of the great explorers of previous ages The idea that nowhere on earth remains unexplored is instantly disproved by the contemporary explorers who are showcased here. Through thirtynine vivid, mostly first-hand accounts, we gain unique insight into what it is actually like to be on an expedition – to be dragged through the top of the rainforest canopy in an inflatable raft suspended from a balloon; to walk across fiercely inhospitable desert with your water supply running out; to conquer a summit never climbed before; to pedal a boat solo across the Pacific; or to stand on the edge of an erupting volcano… Dramatic photographs taken on these epic journeys add to the sense of adventure. Some of those featured are already celebrated internationally – Ranulph Fiennes, Chris Bonington, Pen Hadow; others are less well known: but they all have a common passion, courage and resilience. The Modern Explorers will inspire anyone who wants to feel the thrill of exploration and share the euphoria of these intense voyages; it also shows how exploration continues to deepen our understanding of our world and its wild places, as well as how we might preserve them for future generations.

£29.95 96 Natural History

The animal world in all its profusion and glory, featuring an astounding, often overlooked, range of species and lineages The animal kingdom is staggeringly diverse, but the animals that most easily spring to mind account for only a tiny proportion of known species: there are estimated to be many tens of millions still unknown to science. Animal Earth is an unbiased tour of this world, highlighting the bizarre appearances, hidden lives and mostly small scale of the creatures with whom we share our planet. The book summarizes the animals’ lineages, and is structured according to the latest research on their evolutionary relationships. How they all fit on the ‘tree of life’ is a much-debated topic, not least because new species are being discovered all the time – and some lesser-known lineages, such as Chaetognatha (arrow worms) and Xenoturbellida (strange worms), continue to defy classification. Humankind is in a uniquely privileged position as the only species that can appreciate and marvel at our fellow animals. But, as this superbly illustrated book makes plain, we are very far from being above nature – we are utterly dependent on it.

‘I became a photographer so that I could capture Paris by night’ Brassaï

Brassaï Paris Nocturne Sylvie Aubenas and Quentin Bajac Sylvie Aubenas is Chief Curator in the Department of Prints and Photographs at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.

£48.00 100 Photography

Firmly rooted in its time and place, timeless in its appeal: a collection of Brassaï’s seminal night photography of Paris Brassaï (1899–1984) was, and remains, the most famous photographer to chronicle Paris after dark. Walking the city’s streets at night, he captured a previously unseen world on camera. He shows us every face and every facet, from tough guys and showgirls to prostitutes and pleasure-seekers, from the bustling cafés and dance halls to the stillness of deserted streets and mist-shrouded monuments. Through his eyes, Paris becomes a world of shadows, in which light, the prerequisite for any photograph, is reduced to dimly lit windows, street-lamps in the fog, or reflections on a rain-soaked pavement. This book brings together some of the best-known images from Brassaï’s classic Paris After Dark and The Secret Paris of the 30s, showcasing them alongside previously unpublished photos and archive material. It places his work in context, analysing the unique nature of his photographic vision: part reportage, part social document, part poetic exploration. These works assure his place among the great photographers of the 20th century.

£65.00

The first ever monograph on Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain ‘Larrain took photographs in black and white, especially in the street. He cut up light in such a way as to give the impression that the day had dived into night. People are like ghostly apparitions. He took rare liberties so as to lead the spectator into daring and virtuoso compositions, carnal and knocked about, as if one were on a pitching boat: diving, tilting back up, deep perspectives, blurry in the foreground, a violent slicing up of light…’ Le Monde Sergio Larrain only published four books during his lifetime, and a complete monograph of his work has never been put together. This book fills that gap. It is edited by Agnès Sire, who after keeping up a long correspondence with the photographer, has worked with Magnum on preserving his estate. The collection of over 200 photographs is made up of two main axes, Latin America and Europe: Macchu Pichu, Bolivia, Chile and Valparaiso; and London, Paris and Italy. A luminous reflection of Larrain’s extraordinary personality, the book also features a selection of essential letters, drawings, workbooks and handwritten texts about meditation. Photography 101

WHY IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE IN FOCUS Why It Does Not Have to Be in Focus Modern Photography Explained Jackie Higgins Jackie Higgins is a writer, journalist and filmmaker.

A companion volume to Why Your Five Year Old Could Not Have Done That ISBN 978 0 500 290477 £9.99 100 colour illustrations 19.8 x 14.0cm 224pp paperback ISBN 978 0 500 290958 September

£9.99

An engaging, thoroughgoing and enlightening reappraisal of contemporary photography Why It Does Not Have To Be In Focus offers a lively, informed defence of modern photography. Choosing 100 key photographs – with particular emphasis on the last twenty years – it examines what inspired each photographer, and traces how the piece was executed. In doing so, she brings to light the layers of meaning behind these singular works, some of which were initially dismissed out of hand for being blurred, overexposed or ‘badly’ composed. Discover why Gillian Wearing’s Self-Portrait at 17 Years Old is not the straightforward photobooth snap it appears on first sight; find out what lies behind Hiroshi Sugimoto’s decision to use a 19th-century large-format camera for his work; and explore what prompted Richard Prince to begin photographing existing photographs. The often controversial images discussed in this book play with our expectations of a photograph, our ingrained tendency to believe that it is telling us the unadorned truth. Jackie Higgins proves once and for all that there’s so much more to the art of photography than ‘point and click’. Photography 103

New in the Photofile series, a collection of work by the man best remembered for his photographic essays for Life magazine and as the director of the 1971 film, Shaft Gordon Parks (1912–2006) was a pioneering figure in 20th-century photography. As well as being the first African-American photographer to join the Farm Security Administration (FSA) and to become a staff photographer for Life magazine, he was also a writer, film director and composer. Although best known for documenting issues such as poverty, race relations and civil rights, he was remarkably versatile, turning his gift for visual narrative to subjects as diverse as news coverage, fashion, art and sport. He also captured prominent figures of his era, from Malcolm X to Marilyn Monroe, in a series of memorable portraits. Working in the USA and around the world, he was driven by a commitment to social justice: ‘The common search for a better life and a better world is deeper than colour or blood.’

A collection on Anders Petersen, a veteran chronicler of the seamier side of life, noted for his highly personal black and white photographs Born in Stockholm in 1944, Petersen studied photography under Christer Strömholm at his famous Fotoskolan from 1966 to 1968. He is perhaps best known for his book of reportage, Café Lehmitz, which was first published in 1978 and is recognized as one of the classics of postwar European photography. In it, he captured a time and place now long gone: a bar on the Reeperbahn teeming with prostitutes, dropouts, and the fringe elements that went to make up a warm-hearted family of nonconformists with whom he could identify and feel thoroughly at home. In 1970, he co-founded SAFTRA, the Stockholm group of photographers, and has since ceaselessly gone on taking photographs in his own unique fashion, following the rhythms of his own life.

110 Biography

An intensely personal photographic memoir Fifty years after his assassination, John F. Kennedy is still a towering figure in the history of our times. JFK embodied the hopes of a generation who were attracted by his open and relaxed style. One of the creators of that image was the photographer Jacques Lowe, who first met Kennedy in 1958 and quickly established a rapport with him. For the next five years, Lowe had privileged access to the Kennedy family and was not only the official photographer of Kennedy’s campaign for the presidency, but also his personal photographer following his election. Gathered in this book are over 250 images that capture the life – and the charisma – of this almost mythic figure: at home with Jackie and daughter Caroline, on the campaign trail, politicking behind the scenes, at work in the White House and as a leader on the world stage. The photographs are complemented by Lowe’s personal record of his friendship with the Kennedy clan and his years at the heart of American politics. Together, they provide a unique record of one of the most enduringly fascinating politicians of the modern era.

New in paperback, a book that provides a unique perspective on the nation state – the most potent force in world history National history is a vital part of national self-definition. Most books on the history of the world try to impose a uniform narrative, written usually from a single writer’s point of view. Histories of Nations is different: it presents 28 essays, each written by a leading historian as a ‘self-portrait’ of his or her native country, defining the characteristics that embody its sense of nationhood. The countries have been selected to represent every continent and every type of state, large and small, and together they make up two-thirds of the world’s population. They range from mature democracies to religious autocracies and one-party states, from countries with a venerable history to those that only came into being in the 20th century. In order to get to grips with the national and cultural differences that both enliven and endanger our world, we need above all to understand different national viewpoints – to read the always engaging and often passionate accounts given in this remarkable and unusual book. Original and thought-provoking, it is a crucial primer for the modern age. History 113

A tour de force of original cultural history from the author of the bestselling The Empire of Death In 1578 a labyrinth of burials was discovered in Rome, containing the remains of thousands of individuals assumed to be early Christian martyrs. Reassembled, encrusted with gold and jewels and dressed in fantastic, colourful costumes, the skeletons were displayed in public shrines as reminders of the spiritual treasures that awaited the faithful after death. This astonishing volume brings the catacomb saints out of the darkness. It features arresting images of more than seventy spectacular jeweled skeletons and the fascinating stories of dozens more, accompanied by rare archive material. This is the first time that some of these incredible relics – both intriguing historical artifacts and masterpieces of artistic craftsmanship in their own right – have appeared in a publication, with Koudounaris gaining unprecedented access to photograph in some of the most secretive religious establishments in Europe. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, this book carries deep resonances for a modern audience fascinated by visual representations of death.

An up-to-date, eye-opening new account of our most famous cousins on the human evolutionary tree For too long, the Neanderthals have been seen as dim-witted evolutionary dead-enders with strange-looking heads. In recent years, their story has been transformed thanks to new discoveries and scientific innovations. It emerges that the Neanderthals’ behaviour was surprisingly modern. They buried the dead, cared for the sick, hunted large animals in their prime, harvested seafood, used red paint and spoke. Meanwhile, advances in DNA technologies have forced a reassessment of the Neanderthals’ place in our own past. In a compelling narrative – one that has not previously been told in a way that encompasses the entire dramatic arc from evolution to expansion to extinction – Dimitra Papagianni and Michael A. Morse take a fresh and engaging look at the whole story of the Neanderthals, setting out all the evidence, redressing the balance and arriving at a fairer assessment of a species that was closely related to us, In so doing, they address what it means to be human.

A New History Guy de la Bédoyère An illuminating account of Britain as a Roman province, now fully updated for this edition ‘Lucid and engaging … should take pride of place on the bookshelf of specialists and non-specialists interested in Roman Britain’ Minerva This lively, authoritative account of a crucial period in Britain’s history has been revised and updated to incorporate the very latest findings and research. Guy de la Bédoyère – the popular face of Romano-British archaeological studies – puts the Roman conquest and occupation within the larger context of Romano-British society and how it functioned, thoroughly tackling the issues facing Britons after the absorption of their culture by an invading army, including the role of government and the military in the province, religion, commerce, technology and daily life. With nearly 300 illustrations, including dramatic aerial views of Roman sites, and brimming with the very latest research and discoveries, Roman Britain will delight and inform all those with an interest in this era of British history.

£34.95 120 Ancient History & Archaeology

A landmark publication: the first full, interpretive synthesis for a generation on the rise of the Mediterranean world from its beginning up to the threshold of Classical times Thanks to unrivalled depth and breadth of exploration, Mediterranean archaeology is one of the world’s richest sources for the reconstruction of ancient societies. This book is the first to draw in equal measure on ideas and information from the European, western Asian and African flanks, as well as the islands at the Mediterranean’s heart, to achieve a truly innovative focus on the varied trajectories and interactions that created this maritime world. Extensively illustrated with maps and hundreds of unusual photographs, and ranging across disciplines, subject matter and chronology from early humans and the origins of farming and metallurgy to the rise of civilizations – Egyptian, Levantine, Minoan, Mycenaean, Phoenician, Etruscan, early Greek, and ulimately pre-Mediterranean – The Making of the Middle Sea has already been recognized in pre-publication reviews as a seminal work.
