THE ANIMALS

Brunelli, Giacomo & Nordstrom, Alison

A revised edition of Giacomo Brunelli’s classic first book, The Animals. Brunelli’s animals are often composed only of suggestive fragments. His spare black and white images are attuned to the nuances of a moving mane, a silhouetted whisker, a highlighted, almost illuminated wing. He favours the profile and the counterintuitive angle, setting dark unobservable features against dark undiscernable backgrounds. These pictures are timeless and uncanny, powerful in their ordinariness, and emotionally much bigger than their simple subjects. KEY SELLING POINTS • A revised edition of Giacomo Brunelli s highly acclaimed first book. • It established his reputation internationally and has led to worldwide exhibition and publication of his work. • The new edition includes an additional eight photographs. • Brunelli continues to exhibit extensively throughout Europe and the United States. • There is considerable press and media interest in his work.

TERRA NOSTRA

Mollica, Mimi; O’Hagan, Sean & Scarpatino, Roberto

Sicilian born photographer Mimi Mollica explores the effects of the Mafia on his homeland - documenting the scars inflicted on both the physical and social landscape as a result of a system strongly rooted in both fear and corruption. For Mollica the biggest challenge was to convey the legacy that Cosa Nostra has imposed both on the Sicilian people and on the land itself, with its coastline blighted by illegal speculative building. Here is a system based on extortion and the corruption of public office, and an unsustainable economy overseen by the capitalist monopoly of the crime families.

Introducing two new titles

The Dung Beetle Learning Scheme

The Dung Beetle Learning Scheme

We learn at home ISBN: 9780992834999 We go out ISBN: 9780992834982 Published: September 2016

Bic code: WH Binding: Cloth By: Miriam Elia and Ezra Elia RRP: £7.99

Following the bestselling success of the first title ‘We go to the Gallery’ (see left), Dung Beetle books are proud to announce the publication of two new titles in the scheme. Both will further the child’s progress by undermining everything that he understands to be true, valuable or just. This demonstrates Dung Beetles core principle of development through total annihilation of self worth, and will help to create the next generation of the kind, loving and utterly brainless intellectual elites. In book 1b of the Dung Beetle Learning series, Mummy grounds all learning in a feelings-based outlook, free of any actual facts or skills, re-evaluating core subjects such as mathematics, religion, philosophy and art. In book 1c a simple stroll down the local high street is magically illuminated by Mummy’s insights into the nature of society, religion, art and the various other forms of hierarchical or patriarchal oppression. M.Elia and E.Elia are highly successful reclusives, who live in a cave and have no contact with the outside world. They maintain a strict policy of no contact with anyone they disagree with.
