Welcome to Unicorn Publishing Group’s Spring 2017 catalogue Seasons come and seasons go and for Unicorn and Uniform the seasons become more and more bountiful. Autumn ’16 finished with the launch of the first of our three volume autobiography of Stanley Spencer, Looking to Heaven. Spring ’17 sees our cultural history imprint Unicorn leading with Unmade Up, a collection of previously unpublished photographs and paintings of David Bowie by his go-to artist Edward Bell. We are pleased to announce our Art Solos series of monographs for exhibiting artists, featuring six new titles for Spring ’17. Additionally, we continue to partner major cultural institutions, this season featuring Neural Architects, published in partnership with the Sainsbury and Wellcome Trusts. Over at our military history imprint Uniform we lead with the first in a major new eight volume commemoration of the Victoria Cross, For Valour produced in association with the Victoria Cross Trust. These volumes will be exclusive, limited and numbered editions and be produced evenly over the next four years. We are also very proud to be working in association with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission on our Epitaphs of the Great War series as we approach the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele. Unicorn Sales & Distribution continues to market not just our Unicorn and Uniform titles but also those of the Imperial War Museum, The Historic New Orleans Collection, The Mosaic Rooms and Heni. All our client publishers have exciting new titles. The IWM features Weird War Two, following on from Weird War One, The Second World War in Colour, and Churchill War Rooms Guidebook. The Mosaic Rooms presents Garden State and HNOC Guidebooks to Sin. We hope you enjoy our backlist too – now at 120 titles and still very much in play. Lord Strathcarron, Chairman access to the laboratories. This arrangement makes it possible to use the lecture theatre for public events. At the same time, after discussions with the planning authority about providing some public amenity space, the whole western end of the building has been set back 10 m from the edge of Cleveland Street, allowing space for a public ‘pocket park’ and complementing the one diagonally across the junction. ART FOR SCIENCE’S SAKE The budget for the SWC provided for an unspecified ‘art project’ to enhance the building, and developments in the design of the building envelope crystallised Ian Ritchie’s ideas for how to fulfil this part of the brief. The architects made an early decision to puncture the opaque wall facing the colonnade with five fullheight clear vitrines, which could display a changing array of exhibits. ‘There’s the chance to have a communication of the building's activity sensed and read by the public, which very few buildings achieve’, says Ritchie. ‘Interestingly all shops sell you what they have through the window. But not many science buildings communicate what they are doing.’ The content of the various elements of the art project was not finalised until long after the planning application had been accepted – indeed, until the building was almost complete – though Camden stipulated that each part of the project must subsequently be submitted and signed off. It was David Sainsbury’s strong preference that the contents of the vitrines should be based on scientific principles, rather than Ritchie’s original proposal of contemporary art pieces inspired by neuroscience. Thinking back to the stimulating sessions he had enjoyed with Richard Gregory at Cambridge, Sainsbury suggested that they should focus on perception and visual illusions, which are captivating for the viewer but also tell you something interesting about how the visual system works. And through Sarah Caddick he also provided an adviser for the project. Marty Banks is a professor of optometry and vision science at the University of California at Berkeley. ‘Our job is to make people understand how difficult it is to see and interpret things’, says Banks. ‘Illusions are a very useful way of doing that.’ Before the SWC was launched, Banks chaired a committee reviewing the work of the GCNU. ‘I was in London for two or three days, and met Lord Sainsbury at the end of it’, he says. ‘I had a chance to chat with him, and he ended up coming to Berkeley and touring the lab. We said, “Maybe we'll get together on some project”, and so it has turned out.’

Painting the Ice Bear

A Visual Investigation by Mark Adlington Mark Adlington London based artist Mark Adlington has travelled extensively in search of wildlife, his principal obsession since early childhood. He works extensively on site before returning to the studio to recreate the immediacy of his responses to the animals, using various and often mixed media. In Painting the Ice Bear the artist’s fascination with this magnificent arctic beast is clear: this fully illustrated, quarterbound edition features watercolours, sketches and large scale oil paintings and represents hours spent searching out and watching polar bears – both in wildlife parks across Europe, and in the wilds of northern Canada. Mark exhibits regularly in London and abroad, and occasionally works to commission. He is represented by the John Martin Gallery in Mayfair, London and by the Bridgeman Art Library with whom he is one of their most frequently downloaded artists. Mark Adlington’s paintings of otters were recently used to illustrate Unicorn’s bestselling centenary edition of Gavin Mawell’s Ring of Bright Water (978-1910065-09-9).

Pop Expressionism Works on Paper

Rudolf Humm and Edward Lucie-Smith Rudolf is a German/Belgian artist living and painting in London. From a young age Rudolf had a great love for the arts and took art and design classes. Despite this he was sidetracked into academia, finishing with a BA in Philosophy and an MBA. He then went on to have a successful corporate career. In 2012 Rudolf returned to London and was greatly inspired by this vibrant city. He enrolled in art classes and reconnected with his passion, spending up to thirty hours a week painting whilst still holding down a demanding day job. He finally transitioned to become a full time professional artist. Rudolf is a neo-narrative figurative painter and his art typically bridges between classical painting and modern pop art. He works in series, each based on a dominant idea. Rudolf ’s work is influenced by his early studies of Philosophy. He specialized in Existentialism from Heidegger and Sartre; “Finding the meaning of my life and the role I play in the bigger picture within civilization and my purpose of existence are questions which are close to my heart”. Edward Lucie-Smith is generally regarded as the most prolific and the most widely published writer on art. A number of his art books, among them Movements in Art since 1945, Visual Arts of the 20th Century, A Dictionary of Art Terms and Art Today are used as standard texts throughout the world.

Lulu in New York and Other Tales Robert Power and Max Ferguson Often featuring solitary figures, the brooding atmospheres and urban landscapes of Max Ferguson’s paintings have a cinematic quality that hint at hidden stories and conversations waiting to happen. Robert Power’s critically acclaimed fiction of longing and resolution, alienation and loving, provides the perfect vehicle to breathe life into these luscious paintings. Lulu in New York and Other Tales is a volume of sixty stories from Power, inspired by Ferguson’s paintings. Some of the pictures, like Chess Players and Interiors lend themselves to whimsical conversations. Others, such as Woman in Bath, Subway have violence and menace simmering at their core. And then there are paintings that tell of love both lost and found. What binds Ferguson’s painting and Power’s storytelling is a common understanding and appreciation of the nuances, agonies and ecstasies of the human condition. Max Ferguson is an American artist best known for his realistic paintings of vanishing urban scenes in and around New York City. Ferguson has worked on a number of series over the years, including Coney Island, nocturnal imagery, paintings of his father and Jewish life scenes. His work has been widely exhibited, including in many prominent private and public collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The British Museum and the Albertina, Vienna. Writer Robert Power freelanced as a journalist appearing regularly in publications including the Guardian, New Statesman and Time Out. He has worked in international health for thirty years, travelling globally as a consultant, and publishing over 100 academic journal articles. He has also written three novels and a collection of short stories.

Sophie Walbeoffe

Painting with Both Hands Sophie Walbeoffe and Edward Lucie-Smith The book presents images and anecdotes of established travel painter Sophie Walbeoffe’s sojourns across four continents, with an introduction by Edward Lucie-Smith. Tracing her first paintings as a teenager, through art school and the struggles starting out as an unknown artist, painting native North Americans on the bitter streets of Nanaimo, through to the baking tradewinds of the Middle East and Africa. The book illustrates Sophie’s long career painting on site in deserts, surrounded by camels, wild people and exotic beasts, while raising her two young children in the African bush. Her yearning for home and other climes enriches the book with images of her Devon roots, the freshness of Italy, Spain and France, the colour of India and the history of Jerusalem. Wherever she travels she draws a crowd as she paints with both hands. Sophie Walbeoffe graduated from Wimbledon School of Art in 1984, tutored by Maggi Hambling and Christopher Lebrun. She then studied under Cecil Collins where she learnt to paint with two hands. Having travelled in Dubai and Canada in the mid-eighties, in 1987 Sophie joined the Operation Raleigh expedition to Kenya as the official artist, where she met her husband Dr. Piers Simpkin. Sophie continued to travel and paint in Syria, Jordan, India, Spain and France and spent three years living in a studio in the Old City, Jerusalem. She has painted some curious people from Wilfred Thesiger to the Emir of Sharja on his death bed. With over thirty solo exhibitions to date she is still living and working in Kenya where her husband’s sixty camels and their herders still model for her paintings. She is represented by the Osborn Gallery Studio in London. 12

Amazonia Imagined Kim Poor and Edward Lucie Smith The Amazon has universal appeal and Kim Poor’s artwork encapsulates the magic and colours of that extraordinary region. It showcases her unique fine art technique in creating images inspired by a mythology that is alive today and used by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon to explain nature and its origins to the next generations. Amazonia Imagined is an important and beautiful document that preserves a vital link to the past that is stored in the minds of the Amazonian peoples. It is a book that will be loved by anyone who has travelled to Brazil or is planning to visit there. It will have an instant appeal for those who are interested in the preservation of the Brazilian rainforest and the fate of the native Amazonian Indians. It is an elegantly conceived and executed tribute to these indigenous peoples and to this Brazilian artist’s inimitable and pioneering technique. Kim Poor is a Brazilian artist working in London and Rio de Janeiro. She has exhibited all over the world, including major solo shows at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio and in São Paulo with her Legends of the Amazon multimedia exhibition, raising awareness of something precious which is about to vanish from the earth. In the 1970s Salvador Dali christened her technique of fusing glass powder on steel plate ‘Diaphanism’. She has also created artwork for over thirty record sleeves and a book illustrating the music of the English group, Genesis. Edward Lucie-Smith is generally regarded as the most prolific and widely published art historian and critic. A number of his art books, among them Movements in Art since 1945, Visual Arts of the 20th Century, A Dictionary of Art Terms and Art Today are used as standard texts throughout the world. 15

Neural Architects

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre: From Idea to Reality Georgina Ferry Neural Architects documents a unique collaboration between a leading architectural practice, Ian Ritchie Architects Ltd, and a community of scientists seeking to understand how we think, feel, understand and remember. The outcome of this collaboration is an outstanding laboratory for the 21st century, the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre at University College London. This book celebrates the opening of the building in 2016. Ian Ritchie and his team swept away all preconceptions about how to design a laboratory. Instead they visited neuroscientists around the world, gaining an intimate understanding of the way they use and construct the spaces around them. Through continuing dialogue, the design team imagined the new lab ‘from the inside out’, and then finished it with a stunning contemporary take on the Fitzrovia streetscape. Georgina Ferry’s text is based on interviews with all those involved, giving a rare insiders’ view of the process of creating a highly specialised building. Georgina Ferry is a science writer, author and broadcaster. She was formerly a staff editor and feature writer on New Scientist and has presented science programmes on BBC Radio. She has also published several books on 20th-century science and her biography of Britain’s only female Nobel-prizewinning scientist, Dorothy Hodgkin: A Life (Granta 1998) shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Prize.


in the brain?’ He began to see the Howland Street façade not as a flat surface, but as a series of vertical waves. ‘That rhythm applies to how you look at it in the street’, he says. ‘You will never look at the main façade of this building perpendicularly, always tangentially. Because you’re in a Georgian area of London, surrounded by a conservation area, getting verticality into the design is important. All visually horizontal buildings within the city look wrong.’ The rhythms introduced by constructing the façade as a series of waves mimic the verticality of traditional Georgian buildings. ‘The Georgian rhythm – the spacing between party walls in the Georgian terraces of London – is roughly 6 m’, says Ritchie. ‘Even though traditionally brickwork is a single plane, the windows give you the verticality, and the door indicates the separation.’ Partly as a joke about the rapidly firing neurons of the computational neuroscientists, and partly to give the GCNU a distinct identity from outside the building, he increased the frequency of the waves across the central block of the building. ‘There are always differences [in Georgian architecture] that make the places interesting’, he says. ‘I thought that while using only one material, we would vary the frequency, and enjoy the material at the small scale as it mimicked the larger waves which it was creating.’ The walls at the eastern and western ends continue the whiteness and translucence of the cast glass, though in a flat plane. At each end of the laboratory levels, where there is a meeting room, there was an opportunity to provide views up and down the street, and so they are faced in clear glass. ‘It looks as though when the cast glass, which is ice, comes round the corner, it melts into liquid’ says Ritchie. Much of the detailed design and research on the building envelope was undertaken by one of the younger members of IRAL, Karl Singporewala. The architects worked with a specialist façade contractor, Frener & Reifer who are based in northern Italy, to develop the finished design. ‘It’s been very interesting working with the Italian façade contractor’, says Singporewala. ‘They have brought a passion and rigour to the detailed design, working closely with us. They were selected because of their understanding of our design. They produced their own tools and said, “OK, this is how I think you would make that.” And some things we agreed with and some things we didn’t, and we learned from each other.’ When they were first presented with the design of the façade, the scientific advisers, inevitably, were less concerned with its appearance than with whether it would perform as required. ‘The deal was that Ian could have the façade’, says

Building studies: models show the evolution of IRAL's ideas



builders could understand what they were building, she had arranged for them all to go and see a performance in the RSC’s ‘temporary’ Courtyard Theatre. It was such a success that in 2010 she decided to do the same for the SWC team. ‘Team building was even more important with the neuroscience project’, she says. ‘Putting people in a situation where they travel together, they get to know each other in a different way. We booked coaches, toured the site before the theatre was finished and then we went to see a show in the Courtyard, the theatre that Ian had already built. When the Royal Shakespeare Theatre was finished [in 2011] we took them again, the whole lot.’ Representative user Arifa Naeem had never previously been to Stratfordupon-Avon. ‘Susie treated us to a really lovely lunch and the performance, it was a complete day out’, she says. ‘It did work as a team building exercise, but I find the whole team works very well anyway. Even if they don’t agree it’s dealt with in an adult, mature way. But yes, the trip did help. We talked a lot on the bus, and found out about people’s lives, which you don’t normally do at the meetings. I thoroughly enjoyed it.’ The strict timetable of the outline plan of work concentrated minds, and the time spent in workshops proved its worth, even for busy scientists. Chris Russell ticks off numerous points in the development of the design that emerged from the workshop process (these are all explored in more detail in the following chapters): ‘How the building is arranged, with the BSU where it is; how that would be serviced; the novel satellite BSUs; accepting the concept of the two-storey lab spaces; whether the GCNU’s space would be on multiple floors or not; how the building would be furnished. The double-height lab spaces were Ian’s concept, but developed through the workshops. Certainly the louvres for the windows, and even the fact that there should be windows; the write-up and meeting room spaces; the location, layout and subdivisibility of the lecture theatre and the fact that it is not raked; the open amenity space at the back of the building, and the pocket park. Even things like where visitors would come in, and where lockers would be (and how that would be arranged versus the scientists putting their bags next to their desks); going to the loo, having a coffee, having a sandwich, as well as the workspace.’ By January 2011, the version of the SWC that had been designated as building study 23c had become the basis of Stage D, which would be costed, sent to the planning department at the London Borough of Camden, and presented to contractors bidding to build the laboratory.

But John O’Keefe was initially slightly sceptical that creative interaction could be engineered. ‘The questions in the scientific CIRCULATION SPACE advisers’ workshops would be “Where are people going to bump In architectural terms, circulation spaces are into each other?”’, he says. ‘That is a very dominant view among the areas through which people who think about how science works. I do believe that people occupants of a building get ideas from each other, but equally there’s the idea that somebody pass on their way to or from the rooms they occupy goes away and sits in their monkish cell and thinks very hard, and for longer periods. They include staircases, corridors, to be honest I think that’s much more the British tradition.’ However, no one wanted the arrangement that the visiting foyers or atria. In a welldesigned building they offer team saw in one laboratory: a long corridor of doors with names on, opportunities for unplanned and no windows. ‘You can’t say “Hi Sarah, Hi Bob”, and they might encounters that increase give you a wave to come in’, says Talbot. ‘You don’t want to knock on the social coherence of the community of occupants. the door, so where else do you meet? Sarah and Susie said “Coffee is everything” and Peter Dayan said “Coffee is definitely everything, and by the way don’t forget tea.” But then there are other natural spaces, that’s what we were striving for – it could be the stairs, it could be the corridor. So we just widened out the circulation spaces to try and create informal meeting places in front of the stairs. It was a very simple move. But hopefully it isn’t contrived and they are open spaces and they’ll work.’

Portraits of the English Civil War angus haldane The period of the English Civil Wars was one of the most momentous in English history. These significant events have been examined in great detail from an historical point of view, but never before has the period been discussed in detail from the point of view of portraiture. Art historians have tended to ignore the period 1642-1660 on the basis that it falls between the genius of Van Dyck, court painter to Charles I, and the genius of Sir Peter Lely, court painter to Charles II. There is an overriding sense that these years represent as much an artistic interregnum as a political one. This book examines the portraiture and history of the English Civil Wars through representations of the protagonists who were involved in the conflict. Each portrait illustrated is accompanied by a short biography of the protagonist’s life, and an extended discussion on the iconography of the painting and its art historical relevance, including aspects of patronage. Angus Haldane is Director of Haldane Fine Art, an art dealership and consultancy. He is also an independent curator and art historian. Angus studied Classics at Oxford University. After Oxford, Angus graduated from the Courtauld Institute with an MA in Byzantine and Early Renaissance art. He worked for many years as a senior specialist in paintings at Christie’s and Sotheby’s, where he gained considerable experience researching, attributing, and valuing pictures. He has catalogued museum collections, in particular The Cromwell Museum in Huntingdon, and provides consultancy to some of London’s leading Art Advisors. Angus has appeared as an art commentator on the BBC and CNN and speaks French, Italian and Russian.

Eighteenth-Century Women Artists Their Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs Caroline Chapman The eighteenth century gave us a burgeoning middle class, who could enjoy a remarkable flowering of the arts. But it was a man’s world; any woman who wished to succeed as an artist had to overcome numerous obstacles. In a society in which women were required to marry, reproduce, and conform to rigid social conventions, being a professional artist risked becoming an object of gossip and hostility. Nevertheless, for a woman who had charm and good looks, ambition, and allied talent with hard work, success was attainable. This book examines the careers and working lives of celebrated artists like Angelica Kauffman and Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun but also of those who are now almost forgotten. As well as assessing the work itself – from history and genre painting to portraits – it considers artists’ studios, the functioning of the print market, how art was sold, the role of patrons and the flourishing world of the lady amateur. It is enriched by over 50 illustrations in glorious colour. Caroline Chapman is a writer, editor and picture researcher. She has worked for both the Arthur Tooth and Son art gallery and the Crane Kalman Gallery as well as a working as a freelance picture researcher for thirty years, for Times Books, Dorling Kindersley, Phaidon, and Weidenfeld. Caroline Chapman is the author of Elizabeth & Georgiana: The Duke of Devonshire & his Two Duchesses for John Murray and John and Joséphine: The Creation of The Bowes Museum for The Bowes Museum and has written an number of travel articles for the Times Education Supplement and Cosmopolitan.

Canada’s Dream Shall be of Them Canadian Epitaphs of the Great War

Eric McGeer with Photographs by Steve Douglas There could be no truer witness to the enormity of the First World War, and its terrible cost in lives, than the memorials and war cemeteries along the old Western Front. In Canada, no less than in the other Dominions of the British Empire, the war left a conflicting legacy of pride and sorrow that endures to this day. The soaring Vimy Memorial, the Brooding Soldier, and the monuments honouring Canada’s significant contribution to the Allied victory symbolise the spirit of shared sacrifice and nationhood that emerged from the crucible of the war; but alongside this official commemoration there exists a poignant, strangely overlooked, record of the grief and search for consolation among the Canadian populace in the years after the Armistice. Simple, heartfelt, these farewells preserve the voice of Canada’s bereaved, the parents, the wives, the children, who were left to mourn and to seek meaning and comfort in their loss. Photographs and war art will transport readers to the sites, and each chapter reviews the sources and themes of the epitaphs to establish their place in the national memory of the First World War. The close cultural affinity between Canada, Great Britain and other English-speaking Dominions should make these epitaphs accessible and relevant to readers whose countries were as profoundly affected by the ordeal of 1914-1918. Foreword by Terry Copp, leading Canadian military historian, Professor Emeritus at Wilfrid Laurier University and Director of the Laurier Centre for Military and Strategic Disarmament Studies. 27

H-Bombs and Hula Girls Operation Grapple 1957 and the Last Royal Navy Gunroom at Sea Written and compiled by Michael Johnston Foreword by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh kg, kt, gbe, om, pc Published to coincide with the 60th anniversary of Britain’s first successful nuclear bomb tests in the Pacific, H-Bombs and Hula Girls tells the extraordinary tale of ten bright and cheerful young men, brought together through National Service, sailing in the aircraft carrier HMS Warrior through an Atlantic hurricane, squeezing through the Panama Canal, and taking part in the top secret thermonuclear weapon tests at Christmas Island. The book evokes the Cold War atmosphere of Britain in the 1950s and the race to secure the nation’s place among the thermonuclear powers. But it also paints the picture of a heterogeneous group of young men enjoying together the life-shaping experiences of learning to be sailors, exploring South Sea paradises, participating in and witnessing three vast explosions, being their nation’s goodwill ambassadors as they encounter completely different cultures, and here and there experiencing life-threatening moments intertwined with having their hearts broken. This fascinating memoir of the last Royal Navy Gunroom at sea, crafted from journals, letters, and contemporary records, plus the wonders of hindsight, culminates in the surprising realisation that Operation Grapple may not have been quite what it seemed. Michael Johnston was the oldest of the group of ten Midshipmen and went on to become a Sub-Lieutenant.

Epitaphs of the Great War Passchendaele Sarah Wearne Epitaphs of the Great War: Passchendaele is an edited collection of headstone inscriptions from the graves of those killed during the Third Battle of Ypres - Passchendaele. Limited by the Imperial War Graves Commission to sixty-six characters - far more restrictive than Twitter’s 140-character rule - these inscriptions are masterpieces of compact emotion. But, as Sarah Wearne says, their enforced brevity means that many inscriptions rely on the reader being able to pick up on the references and allusions, or recognise the quotations - and many twenty-firstcentury readers don’t. This collection, the second in a short series, will be published to coincide with the centenary of the opening of the Passchendaele offensive on 31 July 1917. Together with Epitaphs of the Great War The Somme, published on 1 July 2016, these books cover the epitaphs of the ordinary and the famous, the privileged and the poor, the generals and the privates and, after a hundred years, give us an insight into what contemporaries believed they had been fighting for and how they viewed the loss of the men they had loved.

For Science, King and Country The Life and Legacy of Henry Moseley Roy MacLeod, Russell G. Egdell & Elizabeth Bruton (ed.) Even in his lifetime, Henry Gwyn Jeffreys Moseley, who died at Gallipoli in 1915, was widely regarded as the most promising British physicist of his generation. Had he survived, he could well have won the Nobel Prize for Physics. His death provoked a reassessment of the role that scientists might play in war. This book of essays over twelve chapters is a commemoration of his life, his work, and his ongoing legacy. Linked with the 2015 exhibition ‘Dear Harry… Henry Moseley: A Scientist Lost to War’, held at the Oxford Museum of the History of Science. This book charts his education, his brief scientific career, his military service and his lasting influence in a field of science which is still developing to meet the needs of current research, and foreshadowing the innovation of new material science. For Science, King and Country speaks to both historians and to scientists, and draws on a wealth of newly discovered archival material, artefacts, and interpretations. Together, it presents a comprehensive account of a young scientist whose brief but mercurial career led the way to a new understanding of nature, and to shaping the future of chemistry and physics ever since. Edited by Roy MacLeod, Professor Emeritus of Modern History, University of Sydney, Russell Egdell Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, University of Oxford and Dr Elizabeth Bruton, University of Manchester. 30

The Western Front

Battlefields, Memorials and Cemeteries of the First World War Marcel Belley One of the rare books about the First World War that visually explores the efforts of the major combatants to remember the fallen along the entire length of the old Western Front. The area of Belgium and northern France that was the Western Front is a place like no other. In a line running seven hundred kilometers from the English Channel to the Swiss border the horrors of industrialised war consumed men by the millions for over four years. When the war finally ended, entire societies were in shock and the ensuing outpouring of grief can be seen today in the countless cemeteries and memorials that dot the landscape. Much has been written of the British experience and the work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission including the major architects of national memorials, but little material can be found regarding the American, French and German sites. In 2013 Marcel Belley and a friend travelled the entire length of the Western Front. The images he captured tell an amazing story and the chapters of the book are organised in such a way as to help the reader to understand the stupendous efforts of the nations involved to remember their fallen.

Recovering the Past Ian Alderman Despite a century having passed since the signing of the Armistice, the scale of the legacy of unexploded ammunition from the Great War is still a little known fact. Recovering the Past is a photographic documentary project of 25 striking and thought provoking images produced to coincide with an exhibition at In Flanders Fields museum in Ypres, Belgium. This accompanying postcard book contains all the images from the exhibition and describes how they came about in technical detail and the backstory behind each image. It also comes with twelve detatchable postcards. It examines the operations of the Belgian Army’s bomb disposal unit (DOVO), whilst drawing its artistic inspiration from Australian cultural icons and official war photographer Frank Hurley to commemorate the Australian Imperial Force’s (AIF) significant contribution to the fighting in Flanders. The role of the British army in the battles of Flanders is widely appreciated, yet the role of the AIF to that fighting and the eventual allied victory remain little known. The sacrifice and heroism of Australian soldiers in Belgium was as intense as that endured in France and at Gallipoli. Through sensitive compositing of both historic and modern photographs, Recovering the Past visually acknowledges Australia’s ‘Diggers’ in the successful outcome of the war in Flanders.

Brighton’s Secret Agents

The Brighton & Hove contribution to Britain’s WW2 Special Operation’s Executive (SOE) Paul McCue Winston Churchill authorised the creation of a new wartime secret service, the Special Operations Executive (SOE), with the order ‘And now set Europe ablaze’. On behalf of the Secret World War 2 Network, an educational charity dedicated to revealing hitherto-secret operations to the current generation, Paul McCue tells the story of four Brighton and Hove-born agents honoured with blue plaques. He details the organisation’s creation and post-war demise, its training methods and the missions of the four chief subjects. He also covers three other agents, a special duties RAF pilot and the inspiration for ‘Q’, the inspired ‘boffin’ of the James Bond books and films – all of whom had links with the city. Some enjoyed great success, others were doomed to failure and death, but all displayed the volunteer spirit and courage that saw Britain through the darkest days of the Second World War. Their stories, largely little-known, deserve to be told. Paul McCue is a part-time military historian and author for over 25 years, he is the author of four books to date and regularly gives talks and presentations in England and France. His current specialised subject is French Section of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) and he is presently working on a three-volume roll of honour for this Second World War secret service.

Can You Keep a Secret?

Growing up under Occupation – a Child’s Tale of Courage, Risk and Resistance. Anne de Cintra, illustrations by Louise Prentice A good versus evil children’s morality tale, illustrating the importance of honesty, reliability and trustworthiness against the backdrop of war-time resistance in occupied France. The story examines the impact of the occupation by foreign invaders on the community, as seen through the eyes of a 9-year-old child. Living with a teenage brother, papa and mama, who own the cafe in market square, the child regularly escapes to a secret world in the forests to play with friends. The atmosphere in the town progressively darkens as the fall of Paris and the establishment of the Vichy government lead to occupation of the town by the German army. The child’s curiosity is aroused by the arrival of a mysterious female guest who takes a room above the café. When the child decides to follow the mystery guest into the woods and is discovered, the adult world of a secret agent and the child’s world of secret hideouts become inextricably entangled. The child’s ability to keep a secret is repeatedly tested by a shadowy cast of characters (from resistance fighters to fugitive airmen) whilst delivering secret messages, following escape routes and hiding weapons drops. Anne de Cintra was Head of English at one of the country’s largest middle schools. She was driven by a passion for children’s literature, recognising the power of the written word to ignite the young imagination. When she took early retirement for health reasons, she applied her enthusiasm to combine her twin interests in children’s literature and the S.O.E. This novel is the result. 36

Written in 1914 by Frank Fox, The Agony of Belgium recounts events that the modern European mind would probably wish to forget. The bravery and resilience of the relatively new and untested Belgian Army, following the rejection of the German Ultimatum by the King, deserves a wider audience. Fox provides vivid descriptions of a terrible, and little known episode of the Great War including the sacking of cultural treasures.

This unique contemporary account of Haig’s GHQ gives a vivid insight into life in Montreuil sur-Mer from 1916 onwards, and of the complexity of the planning the ultimate defeat of the German Army. It was here that Staff officers routinely worked late into the night, weekends really did not exist, leave was intermittent, and those who worked here would have suffered from that additional sense of guilt about being away from the action. An important gap in the understanding of the administration of war is filled by Frank Fox’s work in this book first published in 1920. Frank Fox was commissioned into the British Army at the age of 41, and back in France by December 1914. He suffered severe injuries during the Battle of the Somme, and spent a year recovering in hospital back in England. Yet still, he wanted to be back to the front, and succeeded in getting himself a job at Haig’s HQ at Montreuil-sur-Mer. 37

British Artillery and Ammunition I.V. Hogg and L.F. Thurston The definitive account of British artillery in the Great War, first published in 1972 and now re-released featuring new photographs and a foreword by Professor Peter Simkins. This book catalogues all known types of artillery weapons that were in British service at the commencement of hostilities and all new developments that were rushed to the battlefields during the following four years. It also includes types that would have entered service in 1919 had the war continued. Also listed are the great variety of coastal defence weapons and 19th century veterans that were wheeled out of retirement in readiness for active service if needed. As the artillery weapon is only a tool designed to project a missile into the ranks of the enemy, the importance of ammunition is also covered in some detail to include dimensions of cartridge cases which is useful for the collector. Many of the weapons described in the book have their ammunition types shown at the back.

Echoes in Silence

Italian Mountain Landscapes of the Great War Andrea Contrini Text by Francesca Candioli, Foreword by Michael St Maur Shiel The southern part of Trentino was one of the most contended areas of the Italian-Austrian front during the First World War. A hundred years after the end of the war, the rough and deep traces of the fighting are still visible in the landscape echoing the drama of the past in the silence of nature. Taking inspiration from diaries and memoirs of Italian and Austro-Hungarian soldiers, Andrea Contrini has undertaken a photographic journey to discover the old front line that goes from Lake Garda to the Pasubio through the peaks and valleys illustrating how the passing of time has transformed the battlefields into places of peace. Echoes in Silence consists in one hundred and fifty colour photographs, divided into chapters following a geographical order, and illustrating the battlefields as well as the Italian and AustroHungarian fortified lines of the following areas: Massiccio del Pasubio, Piccole Dolomiti, Monte Zugna, Passo Buole, Alto Garda, Massiccio del Baldo, Vallagarina, Vallarsa and Val di Gresta. A map of the area completes the historical and geographical framework along with some photos of the period from 1915 to 1918 and numerous memories of the protagonists of the time, including Eugenio Montale, Felix Hecht and Fritz Weber. The text is presented in English and Italian. Also available

Garden State Corinne Silva In this new monograph, artist Corinne Silva considers how gardening, like mapping, is a way of allocating territory. Garden State is the outcome of exhibitions at The Mosaic Rooms and Ffotogallery, co - organised by the UAL Photography and the Archive Research Centre and supported by the London College of Communication. Offering an ‘unexpected view on gardening’ (Wall Street International) Silva presents 53 colour plates which trace suburban settlements in Israeli occupied territories. Between 2010 and 2013, Silva made a series of visits to Israeli occupied territories between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River. She travelled across twenty-two Israeli settlements making photographs of public and private gardens. Silva presents this visually rich photographic journey and examines how the gardens in these occupied lands are both material and symbolic evidence of a continuing colonisation. The publication also features a taxonomical table of colonising plants by Sabina Knees (Middle Eastern plant botanist at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh), an essay by Professor Val Wil­liams (Curator and Director of the Photography and the Archive Research Centre) and the artist in conversation with Professor Eyal Weizman (Architect and Director of Forensic Architecture) reflecting on the work and the political relationship between gardens and colonisation that has existed from the eighteenth century to the present day. Corinne Silva’s practice is concerned with landscape as a com­plex interrelation of culture and geography, politics and botany, living beings and inanimate matter. The artist explores these interrelations on journeys through Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. UNICORN

Guidebooks to Sin

The Blue Books of Storyville, New Orleans Pamela D. Arceneaux with a foreword by Emily Epstein Landau Between 1897 and 1917 a legal red-light district thrived at the edge of the French Quarter, helping establish the notorious reputation that adheres to New Orleans today. Though many scholars have written about Storyville, no thorough contemporary study of the ‘blue books’ – the neighbourhood’s guidebooks, featuring directories of prostitutes and advertisements for liquor, brothels and venereal disease cures – is available. Pamela D. Arceneaux’s examination of these rare guides invites readers into a version of Storyville created by its own entrepreneurs. A foreword by historian Emily Epstein Landau places the blue books in the context of their time, coincident with the rise of American consumer culture and modern advertising. Heavily illustrated with images of the blue books in The Historic New Orleans Collection’s holdings, Guidebooks to Sin illuminates the intersection of race, commerce, and sex at this seminal place and time in New Orleans history. Pamela D. Arceneaux is senior librarian and rare books curator at The Historic New Orleans Collection, where she has worked since 1981. She earned a BA in history from West Georgia College (now the University of West Georgia) and an MLS from Louisiana State University. Emily Epstein Landau received her PhD in American history from Yale University. She is the author of Spectacular Wickedness: Sex, Race, and Memory in Storyville, New Orleans (LSU 2013).

Building the Front

German Military Structures in the Spotlight Kristof Blieck and Jan Vancoillie From 1915, Zonnebeke was part of the German hinterland as the front line moved towards Ypres. With military operations fairly limited in Flanders in 1916 the Germans were busy in this area working on a defensive network of seven lines with pioneer troops and conscripted civil labourers constructing machine gun nests, bunkers and concrete shelters. This book stems from the 2016 exhibition ‘Building the Front’ at the Memorial Museum Passchendaele and explores the methods used, materials and types of building constructed from hideouts to shelters, underground bunkers and machine gun posts to the creation of false trenches and painted windows and doors used to mislead Allied air reconnaisance. The Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 presents the historic story of the First World War in a poignant and vivid way, providing an overview of the five battles of Ypres with particular emphasis on the Battle of Passchendaele. Using historical objects, posters and documents, uniforms of the various armies and video clips, etc. visitors get an insight into how life must have been on and around the battlefields and how the landscape compares today.

For over two decades Liu’s practice as a visual artist has encompassed, and often combines, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, embroidery and collage. Representations of the body permeate her oeuvre, from portraiture to abstraction. To date, her work has explored issues of sexuality, identity, race, memory and history. She has had solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Nova Scotia and Munich.

When setting down my responses, I used the technique of spontaneous writing as much as I could. I let myself associate with the image, but not randomly. It’s tempting when you look at Asian-inspired art, or abstract art in general, to turn the image into a Rorschach test. (Not that ink blots don’t have their own aesthetics. After all, they were devised to peer deeper into the patient than what he or she was willing to see, or tell.) I could be criticized for dwelling too much on everyday associations. My starting point might be too mundane. Let’s go a bit deeper, then. Telepathy isn’t about using your mind like a TV station to broadcast pictures. Indeed, telepathy is no more than an example of how mind extends beyond the brain. Mind is collective. Its contents are shared. Hidden in its deeper reaches are invisible things. What kind of invisible things is Lucy tapping into?

Description Seventy Two is a dynamic body of artwork by Lucy Liu. Comprising 72 paintings in ink and acrylic, the series is inspired by the 72 Names of God – esoteric sequences of Hebrew letters that some believe help in the journey to find enlightenment for mind, body, and spirit. Liu’s art practice sits at the interface of Eastern and Western traditions of art, referencing a variety of styles, from Abstract Expressionism to Chinese calligraphy. With a freshness, vitality, and energy of its own, Liu’s Seventy Two series is a must for anyone with an interest in abstract art and spirituality. A text by Deepak Chopra offers an insightful introduction to Liu’s paintings, while Michael Dopp takes the reader on a journey through the series as a whole. An essay by theology and art history scholar Ori Z Soltes explains the history and meaning of the 72 Names of God. This Special Edition comprises a copy of the publication presented in a silkscreened cloth-covered slipcase.

Consider Listening To Your Soul (p. 136). If I sampled twenty people and asked them if this image was masculine or feminine, I think most would say feminine. The soul, or anima, is also feminine. It’s our source, the still point around which a lifetime of activity spins. Isn’t that implied here? I see that white dot in the center as a kind of source, and swirling out of it is Creation. The soul expands into the world exactly like that. I also think that most people could see the outline of a chambered nautilus in this image, if it were suggested to them.
