Goya - Colour Library (Paperback)
Goya (1746-1828) is one of Spain's most famous artists and is widely acknowledged as an outstanding painter in the European tradition, often called the last of the Old Masters and the first of the Moderns. He is appreciated as a portrait painter; a creator of menacing and melancholy images in oils; a master of enigmatic, satirical and revolutionary drawing and etching; the champion of Spanish people in their struggle against oppression and the recorder of their life and sufferings in war. This book brings out many of Goya's moods, from the gaiety and tenderness of the tapestry cartoons to the mysterious ferocity of the Black Paintings made in his old age.

Although hard-edged, these portraits are still innocent. It's the classic American fantasy: restless, always hopeful, and never giving up - forever young.

Incomparable: Women of Style, Rose Hartman (Hardback)
Incomparable: Women of Style, Rose Hartman (Hardback)
'Incomparable: Women of Style' is a book for fashion aficionados, photography and popular culture fans, and those fascinated with celebrity. This gorgeous volume spans more than 35 years and includes both iconic and rarely seen pictures of celebrated women known for their unparalleled taste and style: Nan Kempner, Jerry Hall, Marisa Berenson, Jackie O., Brooke Astor, Grace Jones, Anna Wintour, Paloma Picasso, Lauren Hutton, Diane von Furstenberg, Daisy Olarte de Kanovas, Rachael Zoe, Candace Bushnell, and Daphne Guinness among many others. Hartman has also captured those anonymous and trendsetters who put themselves together with an ineffable 'wow' factor that is copied by famed designers. Chronicling a world of beauty and style, photographer Rose Hartman has captured fashion's trendsetters for three decades, and in so doing has helped to define what we remember most about glamour and those who create it. Her lens has given order to the chaos of openings, runways shows, and couture's triumphs and tragedies, by letting the viewer see the substance behind the form. With her photographs appearing worldwide in books and magazines, she has distinguished herself as a photographer whose eye is so keen, even her candid work has the finish and insight of portraiture. What one fails to realise is that many of the photographs associated with a style, an event, and an era, have belonged to Hartman, whether it is Bianca Jagger on a white horse as she enters Studio 54, or Isabella Rossellini at a private dinner in the Hamptons.

Dada: The Revolt of Art - New Horizons S. (Paperback)

The Great Court at the British Museum (Hardback)
The Great Court at the British Museum (Hardback)
One of the world's greatest institutions of learning and art, the British Museum sees nearly six million visitors annually. Yet until Norman Foster's remarkable transformation of its courtyard, the enormous rambling structure was like a city without a park. Numerous photographs reveal the court from a variety of perspectives and show the cutting-edge technology of the spectacular glazed canopy that shelters what is now the largest covered public space in Europe. Involving the magnificent restoration of the Reading Room, the creation of new galleries for African art and a range of educational resources, the Great Court project was a herald of the British Museum's wider transformation. The project and this book illuminate Foster + Partners' holistic and ingenious approach to contemporary design.

Herge: The Man Who Created Tintin (Paperback)

Herge: The Man Who Created Tintin (Paperback)
One of the most beloved characters in all of comics, Tintin won an enormous international following. Translated into dozens of languages, Tintin's adventures have sold millions of copies. Yet, despite Tintin's enduring popularity, Americans know almost nothing about his gifted creator, Georges Remi-better known as Herge. Timed to coincide with Steven Spielberg's long-awaited film The Adventures of Tin Tin: Secret of the Unicorn, here is the first full biography of Herge available for an English-speaking audience, offering a captivating portrait of a man who revolutionized the art of comics. Granted unprecedented access to thousands of the cartoonist's unpublished letters, Assouline gets behind the genial public mask to take full measure of Herge's life and art and the fascinating ways in which the two intertwine. Neither sugarcoating nor sensationalizing his subject, he weighs such controversial issues as Herge's support for Belgian imperialism in the Congo and his alleged collaboration with the Nazis. He also analyzes the underpinnings of Tintin-how the conception of the character as an asexual adventurer reflected Herge's love for the Boy Scouts as well as his Catholic mentor's anti-Soviet ideology-and relates the comic strip to Herge's own place within the Belgian middle class. For all his huge success-achieved with almost no formal training-Herge would say unassumingly of his art, "I was just happy drawing little guys, that's all." A profound influence on a generation of artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, the elusive figure of Herge comes to life in this illuminating biography-a deeply nuanced account that unveils the man and his career as never before. "Highlights yet again that all-too-common divide between the flawed private man and the admirable creative genius...Those fascinated by the strange lives of creative geniuses may want to read Assouline's fine, if somewhat disillusioning, biography." -Michael Dirda, Washington Post "Will inform and edify America's Tintin devotees." -San Francisco Chronicle

Shelter Puppies (Hardback)
What could tug at the heartstrings more than a puppy looking for a home? Whether he's exploring eagerly with his littermates or winning you over with his doleful stare, a puppy is quite irresistible. Dog ownership is a responsibility not to be taken lightly, however, and every year growing numbers of newborn or abandoned puppies enter shelters. In this delightful new book, photographer Michael Kloth captures the canine spirit at its floppy-eared, tail-wagging best with over 60 endearing portraits of shelter puppies. From chihuahuas and poodles to pit bulls and Labradors, and all kinds of mixes in-between, the puppies enchant with their curiosity, playfulness and all-round lust for life. By documenting the unique characters and stories of some of the puppies he has encountered in his volunteer work, Kloth raises awareness of animal rescue causes, and especially the need for more adoptive homes.

The Knitter's Book of Yarn: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing, Using and Enjoying Yarn (Hardback)
The Knitter's Book of Yarn: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing, Using and Enjoying Yarn (Hardback)
Not all yarns are alike and it happens far too often that we use the wrong type of yarn for the wrong project - sometimes with disasterous results. In these pages, Clara Parkes provides in-depth insight into a vast selection of yarns, giving you the inside stories behind the most common fibre types, preparations, spins and ply combinations used by large-scale manufacturers and importers, medium-sized companies, boutique dye shops, community spinneries and old-fashioned sheep farms. And, because we learn best by doing, Parkes went to some of the most creative and inquisitive design minds of the knitting world to provide a wide assortment of patterns created to highlight the qualities (and minimize the drawbacks) of specific types of yarns. "The Knitter's Book of Yarn" will teach you everything you need to know about yarn: How it's made, who makes it, how it gets to you, and what it wants to become. The next time you pick up a skein, you won't have to wonder what to do with it, you'll know intuitively.

Bookwork: Medium to Object to Concept to Art (Hardback)
Bookwork: Medium to Object to Concept to Art (Hardback)
Bookwork takes our passion for books to its logical extreme - by studying artists who employ found or simulated books as a sculptural medium and investigating the conceptual labor behind this proliferating international art practice. Garrett Stewart looks at hundreds of book-like objects, alone or as part of gallery installations, in this original account of works that force attention upon a book's material identity and cultural resonance. Less an inquiry into the artist's book than an exploration of the book's contemporary objecthood, Stewart's stimulating blend of visual theory and bibliophilia traces the lineage of these aggressive artifacts from the 1919 Unhappy Readymade of Marcel Duchamp down to the current crisis of paper-based media in the digital era. Ranging from appropriated to fabricated book forms, from hacksawed discards to the giant lead folios of Anselm Kiefer, the unreadable books illustrated and discussed in Bookwork offer timely lessons in the history of reading, writing, and art making.

The World of Gloria Vanderbilt (Hardback)
The World of Gloria Vanderbilt (Hardback)
The World of Gloria Vanderbilt is a pictorial biography of the charismatic heiress who first captured America's heart at the tender age of ten, when she became the subject of a scandalous custody trial. A true style-maker, Vanderbilt's story comes to life through the eyes of some of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century. Since her much-heralded birth in 1924, Gloria Vanderbilt has been many things: an heiress, a painter, a decorator, a muse, a designer, a model, a writer, an entrepreneur, a socialite, an icon-but most of all, a survivor. She brought the Vanderbilt name out of the Gilded Age and into the Digital Age, reinventing herself over and over along the way. Hers is a story of charisma, glamour, and heartbreaking loss, told here through photographs, drawings, and paintings, including many from Gloria's own archive. The photographers whose portraits of her appear in this volume include Richard Avedon, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Cecil Beaton, Inge Morath, Horst P. Horst, George Hurrell, Gordon Parks, Francesco Scavullo, Jack Robinson, Gianni Penati, Toni Frissel, Milton Greene, Kenneth Paul Block, and George Hoyningen-Huene; some of the photographs, taken from Vanderbilt's personal albums, have never been published before.

Pictures, Passions and Eye: A Life at Sotheby's (Hardback)
Pictures, Passions and Eye: A Life at Sotheby's (Hardback)
Michel Strauss embarked on an enduring love affair at the age of six when he saw for the first time paintings by Manet, Monet and Degas: the passion aroused by these artists never left him. This passion, this 'eye' as he calls it led to his becoming Head of the Impressionist Department at Sotheby's where he remained for forty years. He describes the personalities he met along the way: the collectors, the dealers, the colleagues and even the forgers, as well as the clients who shared his passion. There were times of boom and times of recession, there were very difficult times - in particular the anti-trust era - and there were times that brought great delight and a sense of achievement, in particular the British Rail Pension Fund sale which Michel had helped set up and which exceeded all expectations. An authoritative and highly respected figure in the art world, Michel Strauss has handled the greatest of all Impressionist works, some of which it was thought had been lost forever.

Robert Therrien: Works on Paper (Hardback)
Robert Therrien: Works on Paper (Hardback)
The Californian artist Robert Therrien has been highly renowned for his large-size sculptures and room installations since the 1980s. Besides these three-dimensional works Therrien has created also a vast oeuvre of paintings, drawings, prints, collages and photography. Therrien's works, many of them named "No Title", are complex and elude a simple classification. Nor does the artist distinguish precisely between the media and techniques he uses. Painting, drawing, etching, collage and photography are often closely intertwined within a single picture. For his motifs he draws on existing things from everyday life. These motifs exist in reality and in images we see, or in our memory.The particular appeal of Therrien's subtle and humorous works on paper emerges from his reduction of motifs to shapes of utmost simplicity. Their arrangement on paper and the precision of their physical appearance places them in an unexpected light, stirring personal memories, associations and rediscoveries, and giving them an almost literary, narrative quality.
