Fashion Universe of Jean Paul Gaultier
From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk
Published to coincide with the first retrospective of the 'enfant terrible' of design Jean Paul Gaultier, this monograph sheds light on his life in fashion over the last 35 years. It includes more than 500 full-colour photographs of artists, movie stars and musicians wearing his eclectic clothing, interviews with Gaultier and his associates, and essays by leading fashion writers, including the editor of Vogue International Suzy Menkes.
Ambassador of Comics
In 1939, at the age of 17, Jerry Robinson was taken on by cartoonist Bob Kane to work on his new creation, Batman, and over the next few years helped create the superhero's sidekick, Robin, and his chief antagonist, the Joker. This illustrated biography charts the career of the influential artist from comic books, satirical cartoons and newspaper comic strips to his later work as a curator of comic book art and campaigner for artist's rights.
Global Street Style
The shiny skirts, bowler hats and plaits of Bolivian ‘Cholitas’ reveal them to be a cut above the peasant women, while the ‘born-free’ Smarteez of South Africa express their superiority through avant-garde individuality. Based around the images of an award-winning fashion photographer, this photographic extravaganza explores how, in seven distinct areas of the world, modern-day ‘tribes’ use style as a means to express themselves, often overcoming hardship or personal misfortune in the process.
One of the first female members of the Magnum Photos agency, Inge Morath was at her most prolific during the 1950s and 1960s, travelling widely for magazines such as Life, Vogue and Paris Match. This collection of her work focuses on the style and fashion of the period in England, France and America, and ranges from street scenes and society parties to portraits of famous models, couturiers and actresses.
A Celebration of the Artist and His Work
Published to accompany a 2013 exhibition at the Museum of Illustrators in New York, this catalogue celebrates the 60-year career of the celebrated children's book artist Maurice Sendak (1928–2012). It comprises more than 200 images, including sketches, photographs, ephemera and rare and unpublished artwork from Where the Wild Things Are, and 12 essays from noted scholars and historians such as Iona Opie and Steven Heller.
Only What's Necessary
Charles M Schulz and the Art of Peanuts
For 50 years, from 1950 to 2000, Charles ‘Sparky’ Schulz wrote and illustrated thousands of Peanuts strip cartoons, always making every line count. Despite, or perhaps because of their simplicity, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and Snoopy are some of the most famous cartoon characters in the world. This compilation of sketches, proofs, comics and all things Peanuts draws on the collection of the Charles M Schultz Museum to give an insight into the work of a remarkable cartoonist.
