  2. As urban life becomes increasingly more demanding, many people are choosing to build away from the city in a way that acknowledges and connects with the landscape. Living in the Landscape explores new and exciting relationships between landscape and design. It examines how architects increasingly use various nuanced landscape conditions as inspirationand sites for creativity. The complexities of the Australian landscape with its beautiful but often harsh geographical and topological physicality, questions of sustainability and climate change, and an understanding of the Indigenous relationship to landscape are all thoughtfully considered. From the archetypal silhouette of the rural farm shed to Glenn Murcutt-inspired buildings designed with the philosophy of touching the earth lightly, the authors explore how landscape and architecture intersect. In an age where we are increasingly aware of our relationship with the environment, these breathtaking homes exemplify the possibilities of living with the land.

  6. Slim Aarons made a career, in his words, “photographing attractive people who were doing attractive things in attractive places.” His subjects were the beautiful and the celebrated, the rich and the powerful, the talented and the privileged, high society and aristocracy. Slim Aarons captured their image for the picture magazines of the 1940s – ’90s, and, in so doing so, defined the image of the Beautiful People – the post-war international Jet Set. Aarons always shows his subjects in their natural setting, in a circumstance synonymous with their station in life, and in so doing, he gained their trust and a most precious thing – access. And so he was welcomed into the exclusive precincts of the world’s elite, in essence attaining the status of court photographer. The images included here are the fruit of that access.

  7. "I have always loved hearts," writes acclaimed actress Drew Barrymore in the foreword to this heartwarming gift book. "The way that continuous line accomplishes the most extraordinary thing--it conveys love." In Find It in Everything, Barrymore shares the photographs she has taken of heart-shaped objects and patterns she has come across over the past ten years. Some are obvious and others barely discernible. A discarded straw wrapper, a hole in a T-shirt, a scallion in a bowl of miso soup -- seemingly everywhere she turns her lens a heart reveals itself. An incredibly personal collection of images, many of them accompanied by brief captions that reflect on beauty in the everyday, Find It in Everything is a delightful book from the beloved actress and director, who now adds photographer to her list of credentials.About the Author Drew Barrymore has been a favorite of film audiences since her role in the Steven Spielberg blockbuster E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial in 1982. In the following decades she earned praise from both critics and audiences for her performances in a wide range of comedies and dramas. She has become a major force not only in front of the camera but also behind the scenes, as a successful producer and director under her own Flower Films banner, with such hits as Never Been Kissed, Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates, He's Just Not That Into You, and Whip It. Outside of her film career, Barrymore currently serves as the Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Program (WFP). In addition, she recently launched the cosmetics line FLOWER Beauty and the wine label Barrymore Wines. Her photography has been exhibited at the International Center of Photography in New York and has appeared in fashion campaigns.

  9. As the first German democracy, the Weimar Republic (1918–33) is indelibly associated with crisis and transition, bridging as it did the fall of the German Empire and the rise of the totalitarian regime of National Socialism. Numerous artists at the time portrayed these years through an array of ironical, grotesque, and critical-analytical works, many of which also aimed to challenge the status quo and bring about social change. This innovative volume portrays the fight for democracy in the Weimar Republic as seen by more than sixty artists, from Otto Dix and George Grosz to Dodo, Jeanne Mammen, and Christian Schad. From the glamor of the Golden Twenties to the dark depths of a world undergoing rapid change, the penetrating content of this volume recreates the age of the Weimar Republic, illuminating big-city life and the entertainment scene as well as controversial topics such as censorship, prostitution, and political corruption. From Berlin to Munich and from Rostock to Hannover, this volume paints a broad and multi-layered picture of the Weimar years, showcasing the era’s art from a uniquely sociohistorical perspective. About the AuthorIngrid Pfeiffer is an art historian, author, and curator who lives and works in Germany.

  12. A spellbinding reimagining of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ set amongst the wild bohemian circle of Pre-Raphaelite artists and poets. The Pre-Raphaelites were determined to liberate art and love from the shackles of convention. Ned Burne-Jones had never had a painting lesson and his family wanted him to be a parson. Only young Georgie Macdonald – the daughter of a Methodist minister – understood. She put aside her own dreams to support him, only to be confronted by many years of gossip and scandal. Dante Gabriel Rossetti was smitten with his favourite model, Lizzie Siddal. She wanted to be an artist herself, but was seduced by the irresistible lure of laudanum. William Morris fell head-over-heels for a ‘stunner’ from the slums, Janey Burden. Discovered by Ned, married to William, she embarked on a passionate affair with Gabriel that led inexorably to tragedy. Margot Burne-Jones had become her father’s muse. He painted her as Briar Rose, the focus of his most renowned series of paintings, based on the fairy-tale that haunted him all his life. Yet Margot longed to be awakened to love. Bringing to life the dramatic true story of love, obsession and heartbreak that lies behind the Victorian era’s most famous paintings, Beauty in Thorns is the story of awakenings of all kinds.

  15. In 1968, the Beatles went to Rishikesh, India, studied transcendental meditation, and wrote music. These intimate photos are the only record of their time in this sacred retreat.This new edition of The Beatles in India brings intimate images of the group, taken at an ashram in Rishikesh, India, to a wider audience than ever before. No photographers or press were allowed at Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram in the foothills of the Himalayas, but the Beatles had no objection to fellow visitor Paul Saltzman freely snapping pictures during their time there. This unprecedented access resulted in an extensive collection of intimate photos of the world’s most beloved rock band during one of their most serene and productive periods, only two years before the official dissolution of the group.

  16. ‘Arriving in Cambridge on my first day as an undergraduate, I could see nothing except a cold white October mist. At the age of twenty-four I was a complete failure, with nothing to show for my life except a few poems nobody wanted to publish in book form.’ Falling Toward England – the second volume of Clive James's Unreliable Memoirs – was meant to be the last.

  18. Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) was the best-known “amateur” in the history of photography, famously discovered by the art world and given an exhibition at MoMA in New York when he was in his late sixties. He began by recording the pastimes and customs of his wealthy Parisian milieu, indulging his fascination with sports and aviation, and throughout his long life he was never without his camera. His friendships extended to the superstars of French culture, but he also made thousands of photographs of his family, wives and lovers. His work was irresistibly warm and engaging. Although known for his black-and-white work, Lartigue loved colour film, experimenting with the Autochrome process in the teens and twenties and embracing Ektachrome in the late 1940s. His colour work, reproduced here for the first time, is astonishingly fresh: the French countryside, the women in his life, famous friends (Picasso, Fellini) and glimpses from his travels all come alive in this delightful book.

One of the last surviving members of the futurist generation, Bruno Munari’s Design as Art is an illustrated journey into the artistic possibilities of modern design translated by Patrick Creagh published as part of the ‘Penguin on Design’ series in Penguin Modern Classics.‘The designer of today re-establishes the long-lost contact between art and the public, between living people and art as a living thing’Bruno Munari was among the most inspirational designers of all time, described by Picasso as ‘the new Leonardo’. Munari insisted that design be beautiful, functional and accessible, and this enlightening and highly entertaining book sets out his ideas about visual, graphic and industrial design and the role it plays in the objects we use everyday. Lamps, road signs, typography, posters, children’s books, advertising, cars and chairs – these are just some of the subjects to which he turns his illuminating gaze. How do we see the world around us? The Penguin on Design series includes the works of creative thinkers whose writings on art, design and the media have changed our vision forever.Bruno Munari (1907-1998), born in Milan, was the enfant terrible of Italian art and design for most of the twentieth century, contributing to many fields of both visual (paint, sculpture, film, industrial design, graphics) and non-visual arts (literature, poetry). He was twice awarded the Compasso d’Oro design prize for excellence in his field.If you enjoyed Design as Art, you might like John Berger’s Ways of Seeing, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.‘One of the most influential designers of the twentieth century … Munari has encouraged people to go beyond formal conventions and stereotypes by showing them how to widen their perceptual awareness’International Herald Tribune
