Puppies


Wet Noses and Fuzzy Bellies

Jane Burton


VMB 2010
Hardback Illustrated
 

For anyone who has no puppy of their own to fall in love with, here are hundreds, captured in beautiful studio photographs, yet behaving like puppies should - mostly playing and sleeping. The pictures are by wildlife filmmaker and photographer Jane Burton (1933-2007) and they need few words - each puppy's age and breed and quotations from miscellaneous philosophers, dog lovers and rock stars - among them, Charles Schulz ('Happiness is a warm puppy') and Longfellow ('Youth comes but once in a lifetime'). ...more

Splendour and Intrigue in the Georgian Court at Kensington

Lucy Worsley


Walker 2010
Hardback Illustrated
 

Now famous as the home of Diana, Princes of Wales, Kensington Palace entered the limelight during the reigns of the first two Georges, when its elegant assembly room was a theatre for intrigue and scandal. This absorbing portrait of court life under the quarrelsome Hanoverians charts the skulduggery, politicking, rivalries and affairs, bringing vividly to life a gallery of ambitious politicians, neglected wives, spurned mistresses, a chancellor with a taste for young men, and George II's two Turkish servants. ...more

Silhouette



Emma Rutherford


Rizzoli 2009
Hardback Illustrated
 

Silhouette portraits have been around since antiquity, but in the 18th century they became immensely popular, cut from black paper as an amateur pastime, championed by scientists as a study of physiognomy, and providing mementoes of loved ones in an age before photography. Illustrated with more than 250 examples, many published for the first time, from private, public and royal collections, this beautiful book explores the fascinating techniques and social history of this charming, yet neglected art form. ...more
