Destined to become the one indispensable introduction to why we enjoy art – and how we can best experience it Beginning with a fragment of yellow jasper – all that is left of the face of an Egyptian woman who lived 3,500 years ago, more enigmatic even than the Mona Lisa – this book confronts the elusive questions: how, and why, do we look at art? Philippe de Montebello and Martin Gayford talked in art galleries, churches and museums, and their book is structured around their journeys. But whether they were in the Louvre or the Prado, the Palazzo Pitti or the Mauritshuis, they reveal the pleasures of truly looking at works of art – as well as some of the pitfalls. This is neither a work of art history nor of criticism. Nor is it a travel book, though to write it the authors met on two continents and in six countries. Always their destination was some outstanding collection or individual work of art, and the discussion started from what they saw. The result is highly unusual and very personal: a book about what it feels like to experience pictures and sculptures. Both men convey, with subtlety and brilliance, the delights and significance of their subject matter – some of the greatest creations of human beings through our long history. Art 5

Nicholas Thomas An informed and accessible survey of the extraordinary diversity and creativity of global body art, past and present Body art, practised across all world cultures and throughout history, is the most intimate art form, linking the self, the senses, and the social and political. In recent years, it has proliferated in an unprecedented way, borrowing motifs and practices from many different traditions. What is it that these new and borrowed body arts do, and what do they tell us about the global culture that we now inhabit? Nicholas Thomas explores these questions and many more in this wideranging survey of body arts from prehistoric origins to the present. He illuminates their role in expressing cultural identity; their associations with ritual, theatricality, criminality and beauty; and their recent resurgence via the Modern Primitive movement and in the work of contemporary artists. More than 180 illustrations chronicle the diversity of body arts, from painting and scarification to footbinding, Russian prison tattoos, Harlem drag balls and the inked designs worn by celebrities such as Tupac Shakur and David Beckham. For everyone with any interest in the subject, Body Art offers an intelligent celebration of this quintessentially human art form.

Third Edition Joan Stanley-Baker An authoritative and provocative survey of the arts of Japan, brought right up to date with the latest developments and current trends The uniqueness of Japanese culture rests on the fact that, throughout its history, Japan has continually taken, adapted and transformed diverse influences, whether from Korea, China, the South Seas, Europe or America, into distinct traditions of its own. This book surveys the arts of Japan from the prehistoric period to the present, bringing together the results of the most recent research on the subject. Now updated and expanded with a new chapter on art since the mid-1960s, including the fields of manga and animé in which Japan leads the world, Japanese Art addresses itself equally to the student and to those coming to the subject for the first time. Profusely illustrated with examples from all the arts – painting, calligraphy, the decorative arts, photography and architecture – and with a wide-ranging bibliography, this is a concise and informative overview of a fascinating culture, in which interest has never been greater than it is today.

A guided tour of this masterpiece of Italian art and architecture Founded in 1228, the Basilica of St Francis in Assisi is the burial place of the well-known saint and the mother church of the Franciscan order of monks. It is also a treasure house of art, decorated with monumental frescoes by some of the greatest painters of the 13th and 14th centuries. The Upper Church is perhaps most famed for its sequence of frescoes that celebrate the life and teachings of St Francis, attributed to Giotto and his workshop, while Cimabue and his followers were responsible for a series of dramatic scenes from the Bible. The Lower Church, meanwhile, has been expanded through the addition of several magnificent chapels; their titular saints are commemorated with great imagination and immediacy in works by artists including Simone Martini and Pietro Lorenzetti. This book takes its readers on a guided tour of this magnificent complex, aided by a wealth of beautiful photographs. Rarely seen details allow the personal imprints of the artists to shine through, and prove that beyond their diversity of styles, they were all united by a desire to mirror reality while maintaining a sense of the sublime. This unmatched artistic heritage marks a revolutionary era in the flowering of Italian art. Art 11

An essential overview of Cy Twombly’s complex body of work Cy Twombly created art that was remarkable for its versatility, sensitivity and originality. Throughout his career, he followed his own artistic pathway, independent from contemporary trends, and for a long time his work went unnoticed by a wider audience. By the time of his death in Rome, at the age of 83, he was internationally recognized as one of the greatest and most idiosyncratic artists of the 20th and early 21st century. At an early stage, he began to develop his own symbolic language of letters and words, which suggested a pictorial form of poetry. References from art, history and mythology soon expanded this poetic vocabulary, often combined with a sensual engagement with the painted surface. This book provides an authoritative overview of Twombly’s complex body of work, bringing together the most important of his paintings and painting cycles, as well as a selection of his drawings, sculptures and photographs. Each group of works is introduced and discussed the respected art historians Simon Schama, Laszlo Glozer, Kirk Varnedoe and Thierry Greub.

An overarching survey of mid-century New York’s invigorating new world of art, architecture and performing arts New York Mid-Century tells the story of how the Big Apple emerged as the cultural capital of the post-war world in all fields of creative endeavour. It was a period of intense cross-fertilization, as poets and critics mixed with artists, dealers, musicians, architects, dancers and choreographers. Annie Cohen-Solal brings alive the influential critics and patrons, the legendary galleries, and the artists themselves, from Pollock, Rothko and de Kooning to Johns, Rauschenberg and Warhol. Paul Goldberger presents the modernist architectural masterpieces that created the city’s sleek new profile, highlighting both public and private spaces, while Robert Gottlieb invites us to relive the heyday of the musical, explore the great jazz clubs of Harlem, and peek into the inventive studios of the dance world. Richly illustrated with hundreds of paintings, drawings, photographs, elevations, plans, posters, playbills and ephemera, New York Mid-Century is a stirring evocation of a remarkably fertile period in the city’s history, whose styles and aesthetics are now very much back in vogue.

The first substantial textbook on one of the most exciting areas of art practice today, written by an authority on the subject From its underground genesis during the Cultural Revolution (1966–76), contemporary Chinese art has become a dynamic and hugely influential force in a world where the distinctions between East and West are rapidly collapsing. In this first systematic introduction to the topic, Wu Hung provides an accessible, focused and much-needed narrative of the development of Chinese art across all media since the 1970s. Richly illustrated, it considers its subject chronologically both in the context of China’s specific historical experiences and in a global arena. Wu Hung explores the emergence of avant-garde or contemporary art – as opposed to officially sanctioned art – in the public sphere after the Cultural Revolution; the mobilization by young artists and critics of a nationwide avant-garde movement in the mid-1980s; the re-emphasis on individual creativity in the late 1980s; the catapaulting of Chinese art into the global arena from the 1990s; and the recent identification of Chinese artists, such as Ai Weiwei, as global citizens who create works for an international audience. 15

Daniel Arasse A major monograph available again in a new, compact format Before the publication of this first major monograph on Anselm Kiefer, no one had attempted to analyse in depth the very essence of his art. Daniel Arasse takes as a starting point the 1980 Venice Biennale, a key moment in the artist’s career that marked the birth of both his international reputation and the controversy over the ‘Germanness’ of his work. Across six main chapters, the author delves into the central themes of Kiefer’s art and their evolution: Nordic and Germanic mythologies; Jewish mysticism; the cosmos; the legends of the ancient world; links between heaven and earth, gods and men; transmutation; and the role of the human body. All of these lie at the heart of his rigorous and deeply interesting thought. Interspersed with the main discussion are five sub-chapters that shed new light on the fabric of Kiefer’s work by examining his favorite motifs and the ways they have mutated through time and thematic shifts. By examining his influences, style and recurring motifs, Daniel Arasse illuminates Kiefer’s rich culture and his philosophical and artistic practice, while demonstrating a unity and continuity that transcend any linear concept of his development.

A beautifully produced literary art book that links contemporary Irish writing to Ireland’s national collection of art ‘The paintings were windows through which I could see snippets of other people’s past lives, and in doing so recognize something of my own.’ So muses Christine Dwyer Hickey in her response to The Goose Girl by Stanley Royle in a collection of new writing that brings together two celebrated traditions: art and literature. Over fifty-five acclaimed Irish novelists, playwrights and poets have selected pictures from the National Gallery of Ireland as setting-off points to explore ideas and tell stories about art, love, loss, family, dreams, memory, places and privacy. Seamus Heaney finds quiet beauty in a canal path by Gustave Caillebotte; Roddy Doyle gives voice to a man in a crowd painted by Jack B. Yeats; Colm Tóibín considers a portrait redolent with possibilities by John Butler Yeats; John Banville sheds light on Caravaggio’s darkness. Each writer creates and connects vividly with other worlds – observed, remembered and imagined. Perceptive and deeply personal, their responses to pictures invite us to look at art in new lights and from different angles.

The definitive guide to writing engagingly about art Invaluable for students, arts professionals and other aspiring writers, this book first navigates readers through the key elements of style and content, from the aims and structure of a piece to its tone and language. Brimming with practical tips that range across the complete spectrum of art-writing, the second part of the book is organized around its specific forms, including academic essays; press releases and news articles; texts for auction and exhibition catalogues, gallery guides and wall labels; op-ed journalism and exhibition reviews; and writing for websites and blogs. In counselling the reader against common pitfalls – such as jargon and poor structure – Gilda Williams points instead to the power of close looking and research, showing how to deploy language effectively; how to develop new ideas; and how to construct compelling texts. More than thirty illustrations throughout support closely analysed case studies of the best writing, in Source Texts by sixty-four authors. Supplemented by a bibliography, advice on the use and misuse of grammar, and tips on how to construct your own contemporary art library, this is an essential handbook for all those interested in communicating about the art of today.

An inspiring global account of some of the most ambitious, daring and socially engaged artwork being made today Art and Politics Now offers a brilliant survey of some 200 artists whose work engages with ‘the political’, whether in providing commentary, questioning social structures, or responding to the world around them. Each themed chapter explores how, since the turn of the 21st century, artists have addressed real-world issues such as globalization, terrorism, conflict, the environment and knowledge, often using radical approaches and techniques to communicate their ideas. Throughout the book, Anthony Downey’s clear and thoughtful discussion of the major issues and themes is closely interwoven with detailed analysis of the artworks, which include projects by Ai Weiwei, Chantal Akerman, Harun Farocki, Omer Fast, Thomas Hirschhorn, Carsten Höller, Steve McQueen, Teresa Margolles, Adrian Paci, Walid Raad, Doris Salcedo and Santiago Sierra. Art and Politics Now is essential reading for anyone interested in the potential of art to engage with and even redefine the political sphere, as well as those seeking inspirational, creative responses to today’s key political debates.

Showcases forty-five artists who are pushing the boundaries of scale to create works of staggering skill and audacity Tristan Manco is the leading commentator on street art and has carved a reputation for championing lesser-known artists at the forefront of cuttingedge design. In this follow-up to his bestselling Raw + Material = Art, he reveals a hugely creative pocket of international artists who are exploring extremes of scale through their work and making us look at the world in new ways: from Lilian Bourgeat, who conjures a theatrical arena with his oversized everyday objects, to Takahiro Iwasaki, who transports us into a miniature world that reflects our own, to Leandro Erlich’s dizzying ‘house’ in Dalston, London. The artists are all highly innovative in their choice of materials, which include fog (Fujiko Nakaya), crayons and pencils (Diem Chau), leaves (Lorenzo Manuel Durán), inflatables (Choi Jeong-Hwa), salt (Motoi Yamamoto) and digital media (Yang Yongliang). Stylishly designed and highly accessible, this book will appeal to artists, designers and anyone interested in creative approaches to form, medium and technique.

Nature • Science • Creativity William Myers Foreword by Paola Antonelli New in paperback, the first overview to address the thrilling new developments in the field of biological design Designers and artists have always looked to nature for inspiration and materials, but only recently have they been able to alter and incorporate living organisms in their work. In a world with finite resources and a growing population, design that mimics or appropriates the sustainable template of nature is likely to prove as vital as it is novel. Bio Design examines some seventy projects that cover the fields of architecture, industrial processes, education, fine art, material engineering and bioengineering. Each project is illustrated by a short text, images and captions that combine to explain the problems the venture tackles, and how living materials and processes were harnessed to solve them in sustainable and aesthetically pleasing ways. Many of the solutions also provoke thought about manipulating life for human ends. From bacteria that can spin microfibrils of pure cellulose for use in the clothing industry to pigeons that – fed special bacteria – excrete harmless detergent instead of faeces, biological design is science fiction, here and now.

Virtually anything can be used to make original typography: flora, fauna, foodstuffs – even men’s underwear. What’s more, once you start looking, it is impossible not to see letters everywhere. From deliberate inventions – aromatic alphabets made of spaghetti, soup or spices, or contorted typefaces styled out of human handprints – to serendipitous and often short-lived discoveries – letters formed by chemtrails in the sky, by negative spaces between trees branches and city buildings, or by cracks in plaster – to fading ‘ghost types’ painted on buildings in a pre-digital age, this typographic scavenger hunt will excite and inspire graphic designers, typographers and anyone who shares the current popular fascination with the wonderful world of typography.

A detailed look at the creative and analytical process of visualizing complex data, in works by over seventy designers We have entered the period of Big Data, where huge amounts of information can be gathered and processed with ever greater speeds, where algorithms have become so refined that they can predict behaviour and tell us what we want. Increasingly, designers and illustrators try to understand what all the information we have collected really means and how we can make sense of it to improve our lives. Presenting work by seventy-three of the world’s most innovative information-graphics designers, Raw Data is the first book to get behind the finished image, to reveal how a stack of numbers could be transformed into a beautiful image rich with meaning and explanation. From the political charts of The New York Times to gadget instruction manuals, from creating a narrative out of complex process or spaces to mapping physical fitness, visualizing data is one of the preoccupations of our day. This timely publication will appeal to graphic and interaction designers, as well as information visualizers across all media and subjects.

French Art Deco Jared Goss Jared Goss is an independent scholar and former associate curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

A lavish introduction to and celebration of French Art Deco ‘Art Deco’ is epitomized by the French works exhibited at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris in 1925. The exquisite craftsmanship of the dazzling works on show spoke to a sophisticated modernity, yet were firmly rooted in tradition. Interest in the style has not only endured but has grown steadily, and Art Deco is now more coveted and collected than ever before. This book draws on the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s significant French Art Deco holdings to present more than one hundred masterpieces made by forty-five designers. Among the pieces are Süe et Mare’s furniture from the 1925 Exposition; Dufy’s Cubist-inspired textiles; Dunand’s lacquered bedroom suite made for railroad mogul Templeton Crocker; Dupas’s monumental glass wall panels from the ocean liner Normandie; and Fouquet’s spectacular dress ornament in the shape of a Chinese mask. Sumptuous, atmospheric photographs of the objects themselves accompany the text, making this not only one of the first explorations of French Art Deco in English, but a true objet d’art in its own right.


Turquerie An Eighteenth-Century European Fantasy Haydn Williams Haydn Williams, formerly a director and head of the objects of vertu and Russian works of art department at Sotheby’s, is now an independent fine art consultant.

The first book to evoke the fantasy world of turquerie in all its diversity and richness At the end of the 17th century, the long-standing fear of the Turk in Europe was gradually replaced by fascination. Travellers’ accounts of the Ottoman lands, translations of works such as One Thousand and One Nights, and the magnificent spectacle of Ottoman ambassadors and their retinues were among the catalysts that inspired the creation of a European fantasy of this world. In this new book, Haydn Williams shows how turquerie manifested itself in the arts across Europe. Its most intense and long-lasting expression was in France, but its reach was broad: from a mosque folly in Kew Gardens to an ivory statuette of a janissary created in Dresden for King Augustus II of Poland and the costumes worn for a carnival celebration in Rome in 1748. Focusing on categories including painting, architecture, interiors and the theatre, Turquerie provides an engaging account of this whimsical European fantasy.

A landmark study of the deepest roots of Islamic calligraphy This remarkable publication is the first comprehensive exploration of the ‘Proportioned Script’, an Arabic writing system attributed to the Abbasid wazir (minister) Ibn Muqla and the master scribe Ibn al-Bawwab that has dominated the art of Arabic and Islamic penmanship from the 10th century to the present day. Volume One, Sources and Principles of the Geometry of Letters, traces the origin of the Proportioned Script to the cross-cultural encounter between Greek learning and the scientific, artistic and philosophical pursuits of classical Islam. On the basis of instructions in surviving sources it identifies a grid module that serves as a common foundation for the design of all the Arabic letter shapes. In Volume Two, From Geometric Pattern to Living Form, the authors construct each of the letter shapes on the grid module and compare their findings to samples traced by two classical master scribes. They conclude by examining the religious, aesthetic and cosmological significance of the Proportioned Script in the wider context of the Islamic cultural heritage. Decorative Arts 39

Modern Masterworks of Monsoon Asia David Robson Photographs by Richard Powers New in paperback, a companion to Thames & Hudson’s successful Bawa monograph presenting the most appealing ‘tropical modern’ work produced over the last decade Geoffrey Bawa (1919–2003) was among Southeast Asia’s most influential architects in the last decades of the 20th century, and the principal force behind what is today known globally as ‘tropical modernism’. Beyond Bawa, now available in paperback, considers his continuing influence through the work of contemporary architects working in the region. The book has two essential sections. The first is a useful overview of Bawa and his contribution to contemporary architecture; the second presents twenty-four contemporary architects, ranging from such wellknown practitioners as Kerry Hill to such local talents as Anjalendran, and their works, which reveal the long-lasting significance of Bawa’s uniquely sensitive approach to building and the landscape. This illuminating introduction to current architectural practice in Southeast Asia is a fitting tribute to the creativity of a very special architect and the talented generations he has inspired.

A collection of innovative contemporary lightweight houses whose design and construction ‘touch the earth lightly’ While architects have always sought to liberate architecture from its solid foundations through the use of new materials and spatial reconfigurations, climate change, new materials and restricted land use have given new impetus to finding lightweight solutions for our homes. ‘Superlight’ houses combine two strands of thinking: that lightweight buildings have less impact on their environments, and that this lightness (visually, materially, ecologically) can lead to more open living and greater communion with their surroundings. Each of the forty-one houses presented here is shown through photographs, plans and lucid explanations. Residences that appear to float, ingenious constructions using local materials, innovative structures, inflatable spaces, high-tech hyper-intelligent houses – superlight takes many forms, in many places. From the urban jungle of Tokyo to rural China and mountainous Chile, Superlight offers new solutions for architects and designers everywhere. Architecture 45

An anthology of essays by the world’s leading educators on how aspiring architects should be taught and trained The practice of architecture has changed dramatically in light of new digital technologies, material science and new structural possibilities. Images of striking buildings from around the world have become a part of our visual culture. What is less known, but perhaps more important, is how the architects who created these marvellous buildings were educated. This is the first volume to consider comprehensively the role of architectural education in the 21st century. Many top schools are run by leading global practitioners, who, some might argue, have more lasting influence as educators than as architects. The wide range of pedagogical philosophies and practical lessons, set out in specially commissioned essays by thirty-eight of the world’s top architects and educators, creates a fascinating picture of how our ideas and practices of architecture are formed, nurtured and ultimately built. Through both the professional and educational experience of the contributors, we discover many unexpected and unorthodox methods for teaching those who will build our world.

A richly illustrated, elegantly designed retrospective of one of the UK’s most innovative design practices working worldwide Wilkinson Eyre Architects is one of the UK’s leading architectural practices, with a large portfolio of both domestic and international projects to its name.

Featuring an engaging introduction by Jay Merrick, and with an illustrated summary of more than 100 of the firm’s projects dating from 2005 onwards, Wilkinson Eyre Architects: Works is an incisive and timely guide to a true pioneer of the built environment.

A substantial monograph on the new addition to one of the world’s greatest museums and the most visited in Russia Founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great, the Hermitage Museum is one of the largest museums in the world. In early 2000, it was decided that the eastern wing’s General Staff Building (1820–30) should be converted into a museum of 19th and 20th century art, and an international architectural competition was held. St Petersburg-based Studio 44 won the commission for the elegant manner with which it addressed the project’s complexity, by preserving the integrity of the original design, adapting a ministry building into an exhibition space, incorporating 21st-century museum technologies and connecting to the main buildings and public areas of the city beyond. The centrepiece of the design is a breathtaking enfilade that will enthral visitors to the new space. The scale and dramatic outcome of the building provides a treasure trove of information and inspiration for architects, museum visitors, curators and anyone interested in Russia’s rich cultural heritage, of which this building marks a new chapter.

Intrepid young architects using new technologies and materials are refashioning these traditions, with results that range from gemütlich retreats to glamorous hilltop villas. Houses are presented in three sections: Cabin, Chalet and Villa. Photographs of each house reveal its architecture, interior design and striking setting, while plans provide an additional layer of information. The text tells the story of how the dwelling was sited to make the most of its location, how new construction innovations were introduced, and how these solutions provide a comfortable space from which families can enjoy the great outdoors.

An engaging and enlightening reappraisal of cutting-edge fashion Why did Paul Poiret design a dress that resembled a lampshade? Did Rudi Gernreich really think that both men and women would wear his topless monokini? And what prompted Jeremy Scott to include a shimmering leopard-print niqab in his womenswear collection? In an informed defence of innovative fashion, Marnie Fogg explains why challenging established codes of dress can be highly creative if also, at times, wildly controversial. Why You Can Go Out Dressed Like That features 100 of the best fashion pioneers, from the cerebral conceptions of Comme des Garçons, to the augmented anatomies of Thierry Mugler and the exaggerated physicality of Thom Browne’s broad-shouldered men. Readers can also discover how the subversive designs of Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood and Walter Van Beirendonck have each redefined ideas of volume and identity. Many original designs elicit the response: ‘You can’t go out dressed like that!’. Marnie Fogg proves decisively that modern fashion is not as outrageous and unwearable as it may seem. Fashion 61

The smart, sassy, savvy insider’s guide to what’s happening fashionwise in the streets of Asia What’s the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Asian street fashion? Perhaps it’s Tokyo’s wacky concoctions, a mishmash of styles combined with an ease that belies their complexity. While this vibrant city has undoubtedly had a huge impact on the growth of Asian fashion, there is startling originality to be found across the vast continent. Young Asia appears to be channelling an energy and drive for creative freedom, making bold fashion statements that scream innovation and individuality. Photographer James Bent has spent the past few years travelling around Asia in pursuit of the most unique approaches to fashion. From Bangkok’s seemingly effortless blend of vintage and modern to Seoul’s layered, sleek chic with a daring twist, the diverse results reveal an irresistible quality that unites Asian fashion as a whole: the refusal to conform to a uniform and conservative form of dress. Collectively, Bent’s photographs take us on a vibrant visual journey of Asian fashion at its best, sparking our imaginations, inspiring fresh interpretations of style, and inviting us to view our own wardrobes in a new light.

Yves Saint Laurent is Lowit’s personal photographic history of Saint Laurent, the man and the fashion, from 1978, the year she first met him, to the last show he gave in 2002. With contributions from YSL’s muses and admirers, including Catherine Deneuve, Lucie de la Falaise, Betty Catroux, Jacqueline de Ribes, André Leon Talley and Valerie Steele, this book represents the backstage experience at YSL’s shows as Lowit experienced them. Whether surrounded by beautiful models or peeking at the catwalk from the wings, every moment was a magnificent photo opportunity. Lowit shares with the world magical moments of YSL – intimate, social, absorbed in fashion – and creates a unique portrait of this towering figure of postwar couture. Fashion 71

Fashion Photography Next Magdalene Keaney Thirty-five rising stars who are the future of fashion photography This vibrant book surveys the outstandingly fresh and original fashion images being created by thirty-five emerging photographers from fourteen countries. From Axel Hoedt’s bold graphic experimentation and fascination with traditional costume, and Erik Madigan Heck’s painterly use of colour and natural light, to Daniel Jackson’s exploitation of movement and dynamic shape or Hanna Putz’s cool neutral aesthetic, the photographs brought together under Magdalene Keaney’s curation are diverse, innovative and utterly memorable. Unlike recent books on fashion photography, which inevitably bring together the established ‘names’ whose work already appears widely in international fashion magazines, this book embraces the fashion world’s obsession with freshness and youth: it looks beyond what is ‘now’ and showcases what comes ‘next’. With an introduction that sets out the author’s view on the meaning of contemporary fashion photography and its prevalent visual trends, as well as texts on each of the photographers that profile and critique their careers and work to date, this will be essential reading for anyone in the fashion industry and an inspiration for aspiring photographers. Magdalene Keaney was formerly the Associate Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery in London and was the inaugural Creative Director of the Fashion Space Gallery at the London College of Fashion. She has written widely on photography and contributed to numerous major museum catalogues.

Beyond D-Day Edited by Antony Penrose

Foreword by David E. Scherman

Published in a new compact format to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings Lee Miller’s work for Vogue from 1941–45 sets her apart as a photographer of extraordinary ability. Its full range is shown here, accompanied by her brilliant despatches, which combine immediacy with acute observation, and deep personal involvement with professional detachment. Complementing her words are over one hundred and fifty remarkable photographs from the Lee Miller Archives. They portray the raw edge of combat at the siege of St Malo and the bitterly fought Alsace campaign, and the disbelief and outrage she describes on witnessing the victims of Dachau. The horror is relieved by the spirit of post-liberation Paris, where she indulged in frivolous fashions and recorded memorable conversations with Picasso, Cocteau, Eluard, Aragon and Colette. The book ends with Miller’s first-on-the-scene report giving a sardonic description of Hitler’s abandoned house in Munich. David E. Scherman, the renowned warphotojournalist who shared many of Miller’s assignments, contributes a foreword.

William Helburn Mid-Century Fashion and Advertising Photography William Helburn Text by Robert Lilly and Lois Allen Lilly Robert Lilly has produced news programmes, stories and documentaries from Europe, the Middle East and the Americas for companies including NBC, CNN, VH1 and Reuters. Lois Allen Lilly is a reporter, producer, narrator and intellectual property expert.

200 illustrations in colour and black and white 30.5 x 25.4cm 224pp ISBN 978 0 500 517659 October

£39.95

Lusciously illustrated and produced, here is the work of one of the major image-makers of postwar fashion and advertising William Helburn was the photographer of choice for many of the top advertising agencies in New York in the 1950s and 60s. Shock value and an unrelenting hunger for success helped Helburn to a pioneer’s share in the revolutionary era of advertising, and his work appeared on the pages and covers of major magazines. As well as cars and cosmetics, Helburn shot Coca-Cola, Canada Dry, clothing lines, airlines, jewelry, cigars and cigarettes. He worked with the top models of the day, from Dovima, Dorian Leigh and Jean Patchett to Barbara Mullen, Jean Shrimpton and Lauren Hutton. This volume is the first to survey his photographic work, and gives readers a taste of the vivid reality that the television series Mad Men seeks to evoke. Most of the images have not been seen since they were first published decades ago. In addition to the photographs, Robert Lilly contributes a biographical account of Helburn’s life and work, and former colleagues Jerry Schatzberg, George Lois, Sunny Griffin and Ali McGraw offer insights into William Helburn’s lusty, creative spirit.

Introduction by Roger Grenier Available again in the esteemed Photofile series, a collection of work by the photographer Brassaï No photographer is more closely associated with a city than Brassaï (1899–1984) is with Paris.

A friend of Picasso and Henry Miller, Brassaï knew and photographed the leading figures of his day – Giacometti, Sartre, Dalí, Matisse and Mann among them. His most famous portraits and cityscapes, collected in this volume, form a unique vision of life in pre- and post-war Europe. Photofile The Photofile series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers, in an attractive format and at an affordable price. Handsome and collectable, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography.

Essay by Michel Frizot

Available again, a facsimile of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s famous scrapbook Henri Cartier-Bresson was taken prisoner by the Germans in 1940. After two unsuccessful attempts, he managed to escape in 1943. During this time, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, assuming that the photographer had died in the war, started preparing what they thought was a posthumous exhibition of his work. When he reappeared, CartierBresson was delighted to learn of the exhibition, and decided to review his entire work and curate it himself. In 1946 he travelled to New York with about 300 prints in his suitcase, bought a scrapbook, glued each one in, and brought that album to MoMA’s curators. His first exhibition, a celebration of his survival, opened on 4 February 1947. In the 1990s, Cartier-Bresson once again returned to this scrapbook. Following his death in 2004, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, the present owner of the prints, finished restoring them, making it possible to bring a large body of extraordinary, hitherto unpublished work to the public, images that have finally become a memorial collection after all.

Foreword by Czesław Miłosz Photographs by Josef Koudelka New commentary with Josef Koudelka and Robert Delpire A new, expanded edition of Koudelka’s seminal volume with ten never-before-published images About Exiles, Cornell Capa once wrote, ‘Koudelka’s unsentimental, stark, brooding, intensely human imagery reflects his own spirit, the very essence of an exile who is at home wherever his wandering body finds haven in the night.’ In this newly revised and expanded edition of the 1988 classic, Koudelka’s work once more forms a powerful document of the spiritual and physical state of exile. The sense of private mystery that fills these photographs – mostly taken during Koudelka’s years of wandering through Europe since leaving his native Czechoslovakia in 1968 – speaks of passion and reserve, of his rage to see. Solitary, moving, deeply felt and strangely disturbing, the images in Exiles suggest alienation, disconnection and love. Edited and sequenced by Koudelka and Robert Delpire, Exiles evokes some of the most compelling and troubling themes of the twentieth century, while resonating with equal force in this current moment of profound migrations and transience.

Uncommon Places: The Complete Works Essay by Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen Conversation with the artist by Lynne Tillman A contemporary classic, revised and expanded Originally published in 1982, Stephen Shore’s legendary Uncommon Places has influenced more than a generation of photographers. Shore was among the first artists to take colour beyond the domain of advertising and fashion photography, and his large-format colour work on the American vernacular landscape stands at the root of what has become a vital photographic tradition over the past forty years. Now, for this lushly produced reissue, the artist has added nearly fifteen images and a statement discussing the rediscovery of images never before printed and what it means to expand a classic series. An essay by noted critic and curator Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen and a conversation with Shore by fiction writer Lynne Tillman examine his methodology as they elucidate his roots in the Pop and conceptual art movements of the late sixties and early seventies. The texts are illustrated with reproductions from Shore’s earlier series American Surfaces and Amarillo: Tall in Texas. Photography 81

An international survey of the vibrant, burgeoning field that is contemporary landscape photography Landscape finds itself at the cutting edge of contemporary image making, driven partly by an enduring fascination with the land, and partly by the urgent need to take stock of the extraordinary forces impacting on our environment. For this first global survey of the genre, William A. Ewing has selected work by over 100 photographers, ranging from renowned figures to younger rising stars. Each represents an individual or original viewpoint of a shared concern for our changing environment. Organized into ten themes, Landmark covers the full range of the style, and sometimes goes outside it: from bucolic images picturing the last vestiges of ‘nature’, through disturbing depictions of a sullied Earth, scarred and abused, to surreal and artificial landscapes where nature is channelled, controlled and regulated. Ewing contributes a preface and an introduction as well as introductory texts to each section, and the book also features concise statements by the photographers themselves. The result is a thoughtprovoking meditation on the meaning of landscape in today’s world.

A history of our era’s defining medium, told via a tour of the most significant photography shows to have ever taken place This is the first book to study the history of photography via international exhibitions. It describes the most important shows and sets them in the context of their times: London’s Great Exhibition of 1851, the magnificent Vienna International Exhibition of 1891, and Film und Foto in Stuttgart 1929 all feature in this wide-ranging global survey. In the postwar period, The Family of Man toured over sixty countries, and curators began to make formal links between photography and contemporary art. In this century, the photographic aftermath of 9/11 is marked by an interview with Charles Traub, co-founder of Here is New York, which remains possibly the most seen exhibition in history. With contributions by and interviews with Quentin Bajac, Gerry Badger, Paul-Louis Roubert, David Spencer, Francesco Zanot, Michel Frizot, Alessia Tagliaventi and Charles Traub, this book will be required reading for anyone with a serious interest in photography and curating.

A behind-the-scenes exploration of the art of contemporary photography, richly illustrated with rarely seen works-inprogress from forty-three of today’s most original practitioners This book celebrates the new creative processes of the modern photographic era, in which blogs and Instagram streams function alongside analogue albums and contact sheets, and the traditional artist’s sketchbook takes the form of Polaroid studies, smartphone pictures, diaristic projects, found photography and self-published photo-zines. Each photographer introduces several pages of ‘sketchbook’ images that convey his or her working methods and thought processes. These one-off presentations are accompanied by engaging interviews that reveal how the simple act of pressing a shutter can capture and express a fully realized personal vision. Three essays explore subjects at the cutting edge of contemporary practice, including: conceiving and editing projects; technical and artistic experimentation; and print and electronic publishing. Designed to satisfy the most demanding of image junkies, this is a key resource for anyone interested in photography or the creative process.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand Text by Jean-Louis Gouraud Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s classic equestrian anthology, now available in a new format ‘Remarkable … there is humour, grace and power here. But what makes these wonderful images above all is a Stubbsian perfection that will knock you out of your saddle’ The Sunday Telegraph No one has captured the affinity between people and horses better than Yann Arthus-Bertrand. His in situ photographs show horses as they really are – lively, high-spirited, mettlesome, animated, prancing, supple, and even ethereal. Here, Arthus-Bertrand portrays these magnificent creatures and their human partners in photographs shot on location and around the globe, from Montana to Russia, central Asia to Argentina, Mongolia to Cameroon, and points in between. They range from purebred Arabians and the Lippizaner, star of the famous Spanish riding school in Vienna, to the American Appaloosa and the sleek, patrician thoroughbred. Each moment captured is a testament to man’s powerful and moving relationship with the horse. Full of tribal costume, local colour and panoramic scenery, and accompanied by text from equine expert Jean-Louis Gouraud, Horses is a book of unparalleled ambition and scope.

£29.95

Presents the most beautiful photographs ever published of sharks in the open sea Sharks engender our most primal emotion: fear. Real danger is something we seldom experience in the modern world, protected by the comforts of civilization. Yet fear is deeply inscribed at the core of our being. Jean-Marie Ghislain overcame his fear of water by learning to swim with sharks. By confronting his emotional responses to these graceful predators, he sought to recover from personal trauma, asking himself: ‘Can beauty cure fear?’ These photographs are among the most beautiful pictures of sharks ever taken. Working entirely with natural light and a focal length as close as possible to that of the human eye, he brings these magnificent creatures closer to us than most could ever dare. The tiniest mark or scar is rendered so clearly that we feel we could reach out and touch them. By sharing his profoundly personal experience with sharks, Jean-Marie Ghislain captures the character and beauty of these exceptional creatures, so often maligned or threatened, and urges us to learn to share our oceans with a new sense of respect and even love.

A glorious celebration of the beauty, diversity, importance and sheer wonder of plants, with exquisite illustrations from the collections of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew Plants are truly remarkable: even with all our modern technological prowess they still feed, clothe and shelter us, help transport us and can intoxicate and cure us. Helen and William Bynum are expert guides to the rich histories, significance and uses of over eighty key plants, revealing our relationship with them, both utilitarian and aesthetic, and their multiple benefits and cultural associations. Organized thematically, eight sections cover all aspects of our interaction with plants – starting with those crops that were fundamental to the development of cultures and civilizations, and those that enliven our diet beyond the basics, such as saffron and chilli peppers. Other sections look at plants that have helped to create our material world, as well as those that are used medicinally or are revered and adored for symbolic reasons, including the tulip, the rose and the lotus. For anyone interested in the extraordinary diversity of flora around us, this elegantly illustrated and covetable book, published in association with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, will be an inspiration and a delight.

Seven of Salvador Dalí’s mind-bending images re-imagined as superbly crafted pop-ups During a hugely productive working life that spanned much of the 20th century, Salvador Dalí produced more than 1,500 paintings as well as other artworks and objets d’art, including sculpture, jewelry, photography, etchings, lithographs, designs for theatre sets and costumes, plus commercial projects such as the Chupa Chups lollipop logo. Decades after his death, his trademark moustache and dandy outfits remain instantly recognisable, while his art has inspired and continues to inspire new generations of artists, from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst. This book features pop-ups of seven of his most important works: The Persistence of Memory; Hallucinogenic Toreador; Metamorphosis of Narcissus; Dancer in a Skull; Galatea of the Spheres; Rose Meditative; and Fifty Abstract Paintings Which as Seen from Two Yards Change into Three Lenins Masquerading as Chinese and as Seen from Six Yards Appear as the Head of a Royal Bengal Tiger.

An extraordinary paper doll’s house created by the imaginative Miss Otis, enhanced by contemporary material evoking her late 19th-century life, as well as press-out dolls and costumes In 1884, Miss Sarah Elizabeth Birdsall Otis – known to all as Birdie – made an extraordinary paper doll’s house in the form of a book. While these were fashionable enough at the time, they were usually drawn and painted: Birdie, however, chose the medium of collage. Her album’s exquisite rooms, paper dolls and tiny accessories are true works of art, full of period charm but also distinctly appealing to a modern sensibility. Eric Boman’s fullcolour photographs capture Birdie’s remarkably vivid fantasy world in all its quirky splendour. Boman also provides an entertaining text giving her life story and the background to the making of the doll’s house, accompanied by turn-of-the-century photographs found in her family albums. With an envelope at the back of the book containing press-out dolls and costumes from the original collection, this book showcases an astonishing example of youthful creativity and is guaranteed to appeal to adults and children alike.

£19.95

A captivating selection of 19th-century inventions, as revealed through illustrations from the National Archives Here is a humorous look at some of the most endearingly quirky inventions registered with the British Government in the 19th century. In an era when Britain was known as the workshop of the world, enthusiasm was rife for submitting new and innovative designs that might capture the popular imagination and seal the fortunes of their inventors. Inevitably, all manner of bizarre curiosities were painstakingly recorded alongside the genuinely great inventions of the period. These strange, eccentric and often hilarious designs were beautifully rendered by draftsmen, allowing us a unique perspective on the preoccupations of Victorian society; a ventilating top hat, an anti-garotting collar, a moustache protector, artificial leeches and a ‘Design For a Flying or Aerial Machine Adapted for the Artic [sic] Regions’ are just some of the gems included in this book. Extensively illustrated with original beautifully drawn designs for each registered invention, this book captures a bygone era as giddy with the possibilities of a newly industrialized world as today’s app and software designers are with the digital world.

The book lays out the things that matter for a teenage rebel, including ‘How Not to Make Eye Contact with Your Mother’ and ‘How to Turn Your Life into a Soap Opera’, alongside humorous pointers for cultural and social advancement, such as ‘How to Appreciate Jazz Music’, and dreamy, surreal ideas, such as ‘How to Fly’ and ‘How to Breathe Fireballs’.

Exuberantly illustrated with fresh content hand-drawn by the author herself, it is the ideal gift for all young girls with a renegade spirit and all young women who want to keep that rebellious streak alive.

The last known extensive formal photographic session of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, offering a unique, powerful and deeply poignant portrait of the musician in the last months of his life In July 1993, Nirvana were in New York City to promote their new album In Utero. While there, Cobain and the band were photographed by Jesse Frohman – and Cobain gave a candid interview to Jon Savage – for an article in the Observer. Just nine months later, Cobain committed suicide. It was the last formal photo shoot Nirvana ever did, and one of the last major interviews Cobain ever gave. Twenty years after his death, they are published here together, with previously unpublished material, for the first time since the Observer article. The images are accompanied by new commentary from Frohman and Savage about that day, and an essay by pop culture maven Glenn O’Brien. Frohman’s 100-plus photographs, including contact sheets, get to the heart of one of the most beloved bands of all time, at the height of their success. This book offers a powerful, moving portrait of Kurt Cobain and will be an important contribution to the literature of rock and roll. Music 101

A journey into the archives of the most important design agency in music history Some of the most innovative and surreal album cover art of the 1960s, 70s and early 80s emanated from the legendary design agency Hipgnosis. Their iconic designs – including Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy and The Who’s Who’s Next – grace a staggering number of major releases. In rejecting the posed, conventional band photography of the day and embracing the possibilities of the gatefold format, they changed album design forever. Hipgnosis Portraits explores an endless stream of creative ideas in two sections. Part I, ‘Imagination’, tells the story behind the artwork, supported by a wide range of archival materials. Part II, ‘Realization’, showcases the band portraits themselves, in beautiful, large-scale reproductions, many published for the first time. This superb volume’s stellar collection of bands and the exalted status of Hipgnosis will enthral all music lovers, designers, artists and photographers. Music 103

Derek Jarman Super 8 Edited by James Mackay James Mackay is custodian of Jarman’s Super 8s and the leading expert on Jarman’s filmography. He produced twelve Jarman films, including Caravaggio and The Last of England.

600 illustrations, 400 in colour 16.1 x 21.2cm 288pp ISBN 978 0 500 517321 October

A brilliantly edited selection of stills from Derek Jarman’s many short Super 8 films, curated and commented on by some of the biggest names in contemporary art and cinema One of the most influential filmmakers of the late 20th century, Derek Jarman directed cult feature films such as Jubilee (1977) and Caravaggio (1986), as well as music videos for The Smiths, the Pet Shop Boys and Marianne Faithfull. He also trained in fine art and a painterly mentality permeates all his work, particularly his Super 8 films, which show Jarman at his most visually courageous and creative, using prisms, filters and superimposition to produce rich colour and artistically bold compositions. Now, Jarman’s producer and collaborator, James Mackay, has overseen the restoration of ninety-two Super 8s in order to prevent these rarely seen films being lost for ever. This book features key stills and sequences from the films, as chosen and introduced by Wilhelm Sasnal, Liam Gillick, Ed Halter, Isaac Julien, Sarah Turner, Neil Bartlett and Matthias Müller. The transient images, isolated like paintings, are the essence of Derek Jarman and the visual vocabulary of a great artist.

The ultimate celebration of Martin Scorsese’s fifty years at the helm of filmmaking Since his emergence in the late sixties, Martin Scorsese has become one of the most respected names in cinema. Classics such as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas are regularly cited as being among the finest films ever made. This lavish retrospective is a fitting tribute to a remarkable director, now into his sixth decade in cinema and showing no signs of slowing up. Leading film writer Tom Shone draws on his in-depth knowledge and distinctive viewpoint to present refreshing commentaries on all twenty-three main features, from the rarely shown Who’s That Knocking at My Door? (1967) to the latest release, The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), as well as covering Scorsese’s notable parallel career as a documentary maker. Impeccably designed, and copiously illustrated with hundreds of stills and behind-the-scenes images, this is the definitive volume on one of cinema’s most enduring talents.

The Crossing of Antarctica Original Photographs from the Epic Journey that Fulfilled Shackleton’s Dream George Lowe and Huw Lewis-Jones Introduction by Sir Ranulph Fiennes A remarkable visual and personal testimony of an expedition that rewrote the history books The first ever crossing of Antarctica in 1957/58 by the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, led by Vivian ‘Bunny’ Fuchs, was one of the 20th century’s great triumphs of exploration – a powerful expression of technological daring as much as a testament of bloody-minded human willpower. Now, one hundred years after Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated Endurance expedition, this beautifully illustrated volume celebrates the men who succeeded where he had failed. A trove of unpublished images from the Lowe archives are brought together here for the first time, along with others from the Fuchs family collection. Awe-inspiring landscapes, candid portraits and action shots evoke the day-by-day moments as the expedition travelled across snow and ice in a variety of vehicles and on dog sledges, facing enormous challenges and dangers. An array of polar experts and explorers also add their reflections on Antarctica, and the meaning and art of true exploration.

Set to be as influential as the Orientalism of Edward Said: the first book to explore the role of popular culture in generating and propagating prejudices and stereotypes about China A hundred years ago, a character made his first appearance in the world of literature who was to enter the bloodstream of 20th-century popular culture: the evil genius Dr Fu Manchu, described as ‘the yellow peril incarnate in one man’. Here, Sir Christopher Frayling assembles an astonishing diversity of evidence to show how deeply ingrained Chinaphobia became in the West – so acutely relevant again in the new era of Chinese superpower. Along the way he talks to Edward Said, to the last Governor of Hong Kong, to Sax Rohmer’s widow, to movie stars and a host of others; he journeys through the opium dens of the 19th century with Charles Dickens; takes us to the heart of popular culture in the music hall, pulp literature and the mass-market press; and shows how film amplifies our assumptions, demonstrating throughout how we neglect the history of popular culture at our own peril if we want to understand our deepest desires and fears.

An exhilarating, provocative and hugely ambitious cultural history by one of our most brilliant critics and historians ‘We Are All Americans Now’ proclaimed headlines around the world on the day after 9/11. It was not news: it had been true for several decades. In 1945, profiting from a world war that had bankrupted the other combatants, the United States established a new global order, and – despite French resistance to Coca-Cola and processed cheese, and Russia’s antagonistic economic theory – set about Americanizing all other countries. Idealistic by nature, Americans saw this as a mission of redemption. The new empire’s subjects were eager enough to be converted, though not for moral and spiritual reasons: America proved irresistible because of the gloss and glamour of its self-presentation, and the cornucopia of consumer goods it bestowed on the markets to which it had access. America did indeed save the world, though isolationists in Washington wondered whether the expensive rescue effort was worthwhile. And despite the first flush of enthusiasm for the liberating GIs with their gifts of chocolate bars and nylon stockings, a wrenching disillusionment followed in the 1960s during the Vietnam War. Three decades later, 9/11 gave a sudden and traumatic warning that the American century might be coming to an abrupt, premature end. Looking back over the era since 1945, Peter Conrad tracks America’s rise to become ‘master of the earth’, and measures what we have gained and lost by Americanization. Inevitably he deals with resistance to this domination – even by Americans, some of whom deplored the ‘elephantine agony’ of their distended republic and remembered the fate of Rome. But as an admirer of the country’s people, landscape and culture, Conrad ends by saying ‘Thanks, America’. The context for this grand tale is, inevitably, politics, war and commerce, but for the most part Conrad delights us with a kaleidoscopic presentation of America’s unstoppable creativity: its output of great, good and enjoyably bad art, of jeans and jazz, fast food and fridges, comic books and motorbikes, technologies and therapies, along with the heroic, erotic or terrifyingly violent cinematic scenarios that have Americanized even our dreams.

From Mesopotamia to the Americas, from China to Africa – an illuminating and evocatively illustrated tour of forty of the greatest cities of the ancient civilizations The impressive cities of the ancient world built the foundations for modern urban life today, witnessing the birth of architecture, of literature and drama, of painting and sculpture. But when did humans first come together in this way and what were these places like to live in? From the world’s first cities, in Mesopotamia, to the spectacular urban monuments of the Maya in Central America, the cities described here represent almost three millennia of human history and development. Under John Julius Norwich’s expert editorship, eminent historians and archaeologists with first-hand knowledge and deep appreciation of each site give voices to these silent ruins, bringing them to life as the teeming, state-of-the-art metropolises they once were. Imaginatively illustrated with spectacular photographs of the places as they are now, as well as the fabulous objects and works of art that once adorned them, this book provides a fascinating exploration of cities that shaped the ancient world – just as that ancient world has shaped our own.

City by city, discover the rich sophistication of urban life under the pharaohs Ancient Egyptian cities and towns have until recently been one of the least-studied and least-published aspects of this great ancient civilization. Now new research and excavation are transforming our knowledge. This is the first book to bring these latest discoveries to a wide general and scholarly audience, and to provide a comprehensive overview of what we know about ancient settlement during the dynastic period. Divided in two halves, it opens with an account of the development of urban settlement in Egypt, describing the pattern of city life, from food production, government, crime and health to schooling, leisure, ancient tourism, and the interaction of the living community with the dead. The second half of the book takes the reader on a trip down the Nile from Aswan to the Delta, giving a comprehensive account of all cities and towns with details for each of their discovery, excavation and important finds, supported by maps and plans as well as recent photographs. The Complete Cities of Ancient Egypt is sure to appeal to all those concerned with urban design and history, as well as tourists, students and Egyptophiles.

The first book to tell the Greek story through the lives of the men and women who shaped its politics and literature, its science and philosophy, its art and sport ‘A few great men operating in isolation – too often this is the way ancient Greece is described to us. Stuttard puts the very greatest into their historical, political and cultural contexts and coaxes some of the lesser known centre stage. Compelling, sympathetic, revelatory – a vital volume’ Bettany Hughes, author of The Hemlock Cup and Helen of Troy The political leaders, writers, artists and philosophers of ancient Greece turned a small group of city states into a pan-Mediterranean civilization, whose legacy can be found everywhere today. But who were these people, what do we know of their lives and how did they interact with one another? In this original new approach to telling the Greek story, David Stuttard weaves together the lives of fifty movers and shakers of the Greek world into a continuous, chronologically organized narrative, from the early tyrant rulers Peisistratus and Polycrates, through the stirrings of democracy under Cleisthenes to the rise of Macedon under Philip II and Alexander the Great and the eventual decline of the Greek world as Rome rose.

The Great Archaeologists Edited by Brian Fagan A gripping account of 200 years of archaeological research, excavation and thought, told through the life stories of seventy of the world’s greatest pioneers and practitioners Brian Fagan has assembled a team of some of the world’s greatest living archaeologists to write knowledgeably and entertainingly about their distinguished predecessors in this handsome volume, full of fascinating anecdotes, personal accounts and unexpected insights. Little-known pioneers such as Max Uhle in Peru and Li Chi in China are set beside the giants in the field – from Lepsius, Mariette and Carter in Egypt, and Koldewey, Dörpfeld and Woolley in the Near East, to Stephens and Catherwood, discoverers of the Maya of Mexico, and Louis and Mary Leakey, who transformed knowledge of our African ancestry. Imaginatively chosen illustrations range from photographs of the archaeologists and their sites, original drawings and field notebooks, to images of the famous objects that were unearthed. Divided into six thematic sections, this is a compelling journey through the lives of those intrepid excavators and decipherers who opened up vast vistas of time and revealed buried cities, lost civilizations and forgotten scripts to the modern world. Brian Fagan is Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

ÂŁ24.95 120 History

A covetable and beautifully produced exploration of the medieval world, conveyed through intimate biographies This engrossing and often witty account tells the life stories of some seventy individuals who made the Middle Ages. There are kings and queens, popes and politicians, soldiers and merchants, scholars, authors and visionaries. They range from the important, such as El Cid or Frederick Barbarossa, to the little known, such as the dissolute Venetian nun Clara Sanuto. Some were astonishingly successful: the empire created by Chinggis Khan was one of the most extensive ever seen. Some, such as Charles the Bold, the over-ambitious duke of Burgundy, were failures. Contrary to modern myth, medieval people did not believe the earth was flat; torture was far less common than in later centuries; and technological advances included guns, printing, spectacles, stirrups and the compass. Full of insights such as these, this book shows how medieval people lived in an era that was more one of invention and innovation than of superstition and backwardness. It will appeal to all those who want a truer picture of a world often erroneously portrayed by novelists of today.

Illustrated in colour throughout Book: 20.5 x 14.0cm Cards: 14.8 x 10.5cm Box: 22 x 15.5 x 4.3cm Book: 60pp Cards x 54 (48 game cards, 4 bonus cards, 2 blank cards) ISBN 978 0 500 650394 August

£14.95 (inc VAT) 124 Children’s

A fun-to-play book and card game that puts children in the unique position of exhibition curator This set of cards and its accompanying book form a lively art-exhibition game for children aged eight and over. Each card reproduces one of fifty major works of art by Michelangelo, Velázquez, Degas, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Dalí, Warhol and others. As well as key information, such as artist and date, the cards also use symbols and colours to indicate which Movement and Theme the work represents. There are twelve Movements – Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, PostImpressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Surrealism and Pop Art – and six Themes – People, Places, Objects, Animals, Story and Religion. The main card game resembles Rummy, and the aim is to be the first to ‘put on a show’ (i.e. collect three and four of a kind). The book supports the game by providing further information on the artworks and artists, answers to questions on the cards and alternative games to play.

A step-by-step fashion drawing book for young beginners that focuses on finding inspiration in vintage styles Based on successful fashion-drawing workshops at the Fashion and Textile Museum, How to draw vintage fashion encourages young people to draw inspiration from the looks of the past to create their own unique designs. Leading designers open the book by explaining how they go about finding vintage inspiration for the design process, giving examples from their sketchbooks, while people from the fashion world discuss why vintage fashion is now so on-trend. There are sections that show how to draw a fashion template (croquis), including guidance on body proportions and how to turn a stick figure into a full figure. The book then demonstrates how to draw various fashion looks, including those from key decades such as the 1960s and 1970s. Iconic fashion pieces are showcased throughout. Feature boxes look at the detail of accessories, including jewelry, bags, belts and shoes, and the book closes with a helpful look at the design process, from creating a mood board and following a brief to developing a vintage collection.

An ingeniously constructed drawing book that allows children to create a range of funny faces Funny face! is an activity book in which things aren’t quite what they seem. Inspired by the idea of visual puns, the book allows children to draw, shade and fold to make surprising and funny things happen to pictures of all kind of faces. Doodle through a die cut, and shaggy eyebrows on one picture turn into a droopy moustache on the picture beneath. Open a gatefold to make a little boy’s tiny ears become gigantic. Draw pictures on split pages to create faces with different hats, noses and beards. Turn the pages back and forth to find all the tricks and make all the funny faces. Children will be delighted and surprised when, by creating one funny face, they unexpectedly make another on a different page. Enhanced by Hannah Warren’s entertaining range of cheeky, naughty, smiling and jolly faces, presented with rich colours and a sturdy format, Funny face! will offer many hours of joy for energetic and creative children.

An unconventional and idiosyncratic art pad – an ideal gift purchase for children of three and over Make art with your hands and feet! is an art pad with a difference. The reader is encouraged to draw around his or her fingers, thumbs, hands, toes or feet to complete the thirty-two pictures. Hand- and finger-prints can be made with paint, too. Once the images are complete the pages can be personalized with the child’s name and/or messages for family and friends, and torn out to be given as gifts, or simply stuck on the wall. Some pages have a space for the reader’s age to be inserted, giving them a unique and personal record. The reader is called on to complete the zany images, from reindeer with hand-print antlers to foot-print ghosts, and from jelly-fish thumbs to finger space rockets. There are whole families of toes too. Each picture has an icon to show the child what to do, whether to draw around or print with their hands, fingers, thumbs, toes or feet. With plenty of opportunities to experiment and personalize, the unique pictures will reflect each child’s own creative energy.

The games include: Hot air repair: (Quick! – repair the puncture first to win); Space race (steer your rocket through outer-space obstacles back to Earth); The rumble-fart game (make body noises as you match them with their body parts); Slither and climb (go up and down as you meet all the animals); Ready, steady, disco!
