The definitive monograph on celebrated Italian artist of the meta-spectacle, Francesco Vezzoli. Francesco Vezzoli has become famous for a body of work that belies both a fascination for and a revulsion toward celebrity culture. His wide-ranging works include serigraphs with areas of hand-stitched embroidery, film, and photography, and his ability to create a thriving nexus of art, celebrity, fashion, and cinema is reflected in his splashy live performances.Documenting fifteen years of Vezzoli's practice, this monograph includes the artist's collaborations with an eminent group of luminaries, from Miuccia Prada and Frank Gehry to Cate Blanchett, Gore Vidal, Roman Polanski, Damien Hirst, Lady Gaga, and the Bolshoi Ballet. The book is organized as a seductive anthology of projects, each introduced by a distinguished art critic, curator, or chronicler of modern culture, all of whom have been participators and observers to the course of Vezzoli's career. These enduring collaborations reveal the many touchstones that make up the artist's elaborate and mesmerizing universe: modernity and retro, Hollywood Babylon and personal obsessions, icons of camp and high culture, haute couture and kitsch.

This classic volume — now available in a new, smaller format and at a reduced price — provides time-tested advice and old-fashioned wisdom for maintaining a lovely and inviting home. The frantic quality of modern life and our increasing reliance on technology and on manufactured goods has submerged our awareness of the inherited and seasonal patterns of effective domestic household management. A Well-Kept Home revives the more natural methods used by our forebears to run their homes, reflecting on the traditional way that earlier generations cooked, cleaned, decorated, groomed, and gardened. In this exquisitely illustrated book, Laura Fronty draws on her own grandmother's life experiences in the home and the garden, providing helpful tips and natural solutions for effective food preparation, cleaning methods for clothes and the interior, restorative beauty treatments, and basic approaches to gardening. She emphasizes the satisfaction gained from even the most mundane of tasks and offers indispensable tips for activities that cover a variety of domestic themes, such as making bitter orange marmalade or instant shortcrust pastry, lighting a wood fire, treating wooden floors with wax, mixing ivy water for cleaning delicate fabrics, and preparing lily oil as a face moisturizer. A Well-Kept Home transforms our approach to the daily chores surrounding the upkeep of a home. The practical advice and natural recipes make it possible to take real pleasure in essential household duties, while at the same time evoking the atmosphere and spirit of a time gone by.

A celebration of the uniquely vibrant architecture and interiors of classic and new Spanish-style houses in the southwestern United States, Mexico, and Spain. Casa Bohemia showcases a collection of some of the most beautifully preserved Spanish Colonial houses, from historic haciendas in Mexico to contemporary bungalows in Southern California. Thirty homes built between the late seventeenth century and the present day are featured in stunning color photography that captures architectural details inside and out and enchanting Spanish and Mexican antique furnishings and folk art. Author Linda Leigh Paul traces the history of Spanish Colonial architecture from its Iberian sources to the development of the Mission style in the Americas to the still-flourishing Spanish Revival and Mediterranean styles, with their Renaissance and Moorish influences and endlessly rich details, including ornate wrought-iron and wood balconies, colorful tiles, and graceful arches. But what all of the houses featured in Casa Bohemia have in common — though they range across centuries and places as diverse as San Miguel de Allende, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Hollywood, Malibu, Texas, and Florida — is a visual richness and vitality that emerges from the distinctive approaches to preservation and decoration found in each.

A definitive collection of photographs of the legendary and influential band New Order. New Order remains one of the most popular bands of the last half century. Founded in the dying years of punk and disco, and combining elements of post-punk, new wave, and electronic dance music, New Order was responsible for some of the biggest hits of the era and is one of few bands to have achieved mainstream success while retaining cult status. Having been the most trusted photographer of Joy Division in the 1970s, Kevin Cummins was uniquely placed to document the rise and fall of New Order, from their formation in 1980 to their split in 1993. From underground beginnings as the flagship group of Factory Records in Manchester to grandstand tours around Europe and America, Cummins captured the band in every light, from the intimacy of the studio to the frenetic energy of live performance. Collected here for the first time are more than a hundred photographs reflecting over a decade of New Order. Prefaced by a selection of rarely seen ephemera, conversations with the band members, and an introduction from Douglas Coupland, this is a stunning celebration of a band whose influence on music and fashion is still palpable today.

The bow is not for the timid of heart... but a beautifully asymmetrical, slightly tousled bow is a perfect look for a romantic nonconformist man of style. GQ style writer Glenn O'BrienFrom its humble beginnings around the necks of seventeenth-century Croatian mercenaries, the bow tie has evolved to become one of the signature accessories in the modern gentleman's wardrobe.

All of Bennison's interiors are showcased, from magnificent country estates and retreats to elegantly appointed apartments and townhouses filled with priceless French and English furniture and curiosities, making this book a must-have for design lovers.

For those who love or have collected early Bob Dylan bootleg albums, an archive of never before published photographs of the young Dylan, when he first moved to New York City in the early 1960s. It was in late 1961, photographer Ted Russell recalls, that he first heard about an up-and-coming young fellow who was coming out with his first album. A freelance photographer on the lookout for good subjects, Russell was intrigued by a rave review from The New York Times of the raw-voiced folk singer. Russell's subject was a twenty-year-old Bob Dylan, a young folk singer whom nobody knew, and Russell photographed Dylan in 1962. Bob Dylan is a window into the singer/songwriter who would go on to become one of America's greatest musical treasures: the book contains photos of Dylan in his tiny Greenwich Village apartment, writing and practicing; snuggling with girlfriend Suze Rotolo; and performing at celebrated folk club Gerde's. Bob Dylan is an important chronicle of the days just prior to Bob Dylan's celebrity and the perfect tribute both for Dylan and rock history fans.

The definitive monograph on the art of Tintin. Since he first appeared in Herge's weekly cartoon strip in Le Petit Vingtieme in Paris in 1929, Tintin has become one of the most celebrated characters in the comic world. With more than 200 million copies of the famous twenty-three albums sold worldwide, Herge's iconic hero has exploded genres and expectations, bringing readers of all ages to his stories for their unique mixture of artistry, history, and adventure. Drawing on the archives of the Herge Museum in Brussels, this book looks at the evolution of Herge's artwork, from the simplicity of the early newspaper strips to the sophisticated graphic work of the later books. An avid art collector, Herge was inspired by Old Masters but infatuated with graphic design and modern art, from the Constructivist work he studied in his youth to the Lichtensteins and Miros he would travel to see in his maturity. Written by the Belgian art critic Pierre Sterckx-and translated by the British expert on Tintin, Michael Farr-this is the definitive book on the art of Tintin. With rarely seen pencil sketches, character drawings, and watercolors alongside original artwork from the finished stories, the book illuminates Tintin's progress from whimsical caricature to profound icon and reveals Herge's parallel development from cartoonist to artist.

Steven Brooke, whose dazzling photography of Miami's Art Deco District once helped spur the area's preservation, now captures the incredible architectural restoration of this glamorous international playground. During the 1930s, Miami Beach emerged as an epicenter of Art Deco architecture. Against the azure sky gleamed buildings that boasted voluptuous curves, nautical elements, Jazz Age ornamentation, and seductive neon. After the area fell into decline in the 1970s and '80s, Steven Brooke and others successfully campaigned to protect the Art Deco District's architectural treasures from the wrecking ball. Now, with the district's buildings finally restored to their eye-popping glory, Brooke offers Miami — and Art Deco-lovers the most up-to-date celebration of the inimitable architecture that has made the city a style magnet for artists, designers, and travelers from around the globe.

«This Is Not a House» takes a close look at spaces that reformulate the idea of what home means, in innovative houses in cities around the globe. «This Is Not a House» showcases recent projects that represent the vanguard of architects creating innovative spaces for living in the twenty-first century. Dan Rubinstein and the editors of the Amsterdam-based magazine have selected projects on five continents that will shape how we think of domestic life for a long time to come. Where the great experimenters of the last century were stripping away ornamentation and creating free-flowing spaces for the first time, today's pioneers are researching the potential of new materials and techniques to push the boundaries of environmental sustainability, as well as creating new forms and bold, sophisticated explorations in the adaptive reuse of spaces originally designed for any number of other purposes. «This Is Not a House» presents the latest built residential projects by such design luminaries as Sou Fujimoto, Plasma Studio, and Michael Maltzan, as well as emerging ones such as Johan Selbing, among others, in an array of locations across the globe, including New York, London, Los Angeles, and Tokyo.»
