1001 Photographs: You Must See Before You Die
Is photography art, documentary or both? Should images simply reveal the world we live in, or provoke us to think, act and react? 1001 Photographs You Must See Before You Die is a visually arresting and invaluable guide to the history and practice of photography. Sweeping through the arts, fashion, society, war, peace, science and nature, the images in this enticing book are as eye-catching as the commentary is engaging. Some you have seen, others will be unfamiliar, but what all the photographs have in common is their ability to move you, shock you and open up the notion of what it is to be human. Organized chronologically by the date that each image was made, and featuring a reproduction of each photograph, the selection provides some fascinating and unexpected juxtapositions. Insightful text uncovers the creative process behind each image, revealing its visual, aesthetic and historic significance. Why was the photograph taken? Was it set up? What was the intention? How did the world react? From Roger Fenton to William Eggleston, from Henry Fox Talbot to Nick Knight, and from Henri Cartier-Bresson to Dorothea Lange, all the photographers featured in this book transgressed the boundaries of the camera with a skill and spirit that helped to develop their field into a highly evocative art form. Packed with information that will entertain, inform, educate and surprise you, 1001 Photographs You Must See Before You Die is an essential reference for all lovers of photography.

Elements of Architecture focuses on the fragments of the rich and complex architectural collage. Window, facade, balcony, corridor, fireplace, stair, escalator, elevator: the book seeks to excavate the micro-narratives of building detail.The result is no single history, but rather the web of origins, contaminations, similarities, and differences in architectural evolution, including the influence of technological advances, climatic adaptation, political calculation, economic contexts, regulatory requirements, and new digital opportunities. It's a guide that is long overdue-in Koolhaas's own words, Never was a book more relevant-at a moment where architecture as we know it is changing beyond recognition. Derived, updated, and expanded from Koolhaas's exhaustive and much-lauded exhibition at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale, this is an essential toolkit to understanding the fundamentals that comprise structure around the globe. Designed by Irma Boom and based on research from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the 2,600-page monograph contains essays from Rem Koolhaas, Stephan Trueby, Manfredo di Robilant, and Jeffrey Inaba; interviews with Werner Sobek and Tony Fadell (of Nest); and an exclusive photo essay by Wolfgang Tillmans. In addition to comprehensively updated texts and new images, this edition is designed and produced to visually (and physically) embody the immense scope of its subject matter: Custom split-spine binding: our printer modified their industrial binding machine to allow for the flexible, eight-centimeter thick spine Contains a new introductory chapter with forewords, table of contents, and an index, located in the middle of the book (where it naturally opens due to its unique spine) Printed on 50g Opakal paper, allowing for the ideal level of opacity needed to realize Boom's palimpsest-like design Translucent overlays and personal annotations by Koolhaas and Boom are woven in each chapter to create an alternative, faster route through the book Printed at the originally intended 100% size for full readability

Modern Monarchy: The British Royal Family Today
From the modern-day fairy tale of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding to the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte and their soon-to-be new sibling to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's historic marriage to countless Royal tours in between, this book presents the British Monarchy and Queen Elizabeth II, its most enduring icon, through the lens of one of its most trusted photographers. Chris Jackson has been by the Royal family's side on domestic visits and overseas tours for the past fifteen years, resulting in an unparalleled photographic archive of the evolving British Royal family. Occupying a front-row seat to history, Jackson's assignments have taken him to the four corners of the Earth to document the extraordinary breadth and devotion of the Royals to causes such as cancer research, mental health, and HIV awareness in Africa. Whether it's Prince George's first day of school, the Duchess of Cambridge playing cricket in Mumbai, or the Invictus Games, Jackson records moments both large and small with a warmth and sincerity that has made him a media standout. In his own words in captions and texts, he reveals the magic as well as the logistics of what it's like to photograph the Royal family. Organized by theme, from State Occasions to Charity works to a typical year in the Royal Diary, this book celebrates fifteen years of the Royals in intimate portraits of a singular family's role on the world stage at a unique moment in time.

Gregarious or shy, curious or placid, playful or retiring, all the animals in Traer Scott's newest collection have one thing in common: a sparkling personality! This whimsical, soulful, and personal photo collection focuses on the lives of the farm animals we often take for granted. Scott introduces us to barnyard animals both familiar and lesser known, from cows, pigs, sheep, and chickens to Dolly the wooly llama, Bianca the Sicilian miniature donkey, Percy the Indian peafowl, and Justice the yak. Some of the animals are kept as pets; others are denizens of farm sanctuaries that Scott has visited. She shares her anecdotes about a Texas longhorn steer whose best friends are a trio of goats, a turkey who likes to snack on grapes and watermelon, and many others. Lively captions provide information on each breed, to round out this enchanting tribute to our four-legged (and winged) friends from the farm.

Balenciaga in Black: The Black Work
Balenciaga in Black explores the creative genius of Cristobal Balenciaga, the couturier s couturier the fashion designer revered by all other fashion designers. Black served as inspiration and guiding principal for the legendary dressmaker and provided a rich canvas for this extraordinary technician, allowing him to develop new textures and innovative shapes. To Balenciaga black was a vibrant material, alternately opaque or transparent, matte or shining, combined in sumptuous fabrics and undergirding the apparent simplicity of his cuts. Pierre Even s photography of Balenciaga s masterworks, produced specifically for this catalog, capture these subtle gradations in tone and lush details with contemporary precision. Fifty pieces from the Galliera Collection and the Balenciaga archives, including daywear, cocktail dresses or evening ensembles, lined in silk taffeta, fringed with satin ribbons, jet pearls, sequins, are revealed as never before. These contemporary photographs are presented alongside historical portfolios by legendary fashion photographers Richard Avedon, Henry Clarke, and Irving Penn to form three distinct sections: Balenciaga s volumes, interplay of black and light, and combinations of black with subtle colors. Balenciaga s specific materials and shapes are further illuminated by texts, sketches, and detailed captions.

Now That's What I Call Preston
The sixties, seventies and eighties were decades of great change in Preston. This period saw major city centre redevelopment projects that dramatically affected its character. People's shopping habits began to change as supermarkets took over from traditional stores and corner shops. Leisure habits were changing too, and Preston saw major town centre redevelopments. Transport also evolved. A move away from the railway put a greater strain on the roads and the major new road schemes only compounded the changing face of this Lancashire town, which became a city in 2002. These changes in people's lifestyles were keenly felt in Preston. Local author and historian Keith Johnson has captured them all in this fascinating portrayal of how Preston and its people changed over the course of these most nostalgic decades.

Dublin Pubs
Dublin has had a long association with its pubs. The city grew rapidly in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, becoming a major port for trade around the world, and the city boasted a wealth of taverns, inns, alehouses and public houses. An important part of the city's prosperity was also the Guinness brewery, founded in Dublin in 1759 and becoming a major employer. Many drinking establishments have survived from these days and have stories to tell, often involving historical figures or even fictional characters. In Dublin Pubs, author Pat Dargan takes the reader on a fascinating journey through some of Dublin's most interesting, oldest or most famous watering holes. Many of the pubs have retained features and traditions of previous ages, and some are regarded as architectural gems. Pat reveals the variety of Dublin's pubs today and tells of the many characters that have frequented or run the public houses over the years, for which Dublin is justly renowned.

Moreton-in-Marsh Through Time
Forming the northern gateway to Gloucestershire's picturesque north Cotswolds, Moreton-in-Marsh stands on two busy roads: the ancient Roman Fosse Way and the main route from Oxford to Worcester. In the nineteenth century up to seventy coaches rattled through Moreton each week, with the arrival of the railway in 1853 further establishing the town as an important thoroughfare. Always a popular stopping place for travellers, it remains a holiday destination for the many visitors who arrive each year. The town as we see it today has Saxon origins, although archaeologists have found evidence of Bronze Age farming activity. It developed as a market town in the thirteenth century - indeed, the weekly Tuesday market continues to thrive, attracting visitors from near and far - and is now growing faster than ever before. Its changing face is evocatively documented in this book, which will be of considerable interest to visitors and local residents alike.

Cambridge Women and the Struggle for the Vote
Cambridge was at the forefront of the struggle for women to get the right to vote in Britain a century ago. Millicent Fawcett, who later became the national leader of the non-militant Suffragists and arguably one of the most influential women in Britain of the last 100 years, lived in Cambridge and founded the Cambridge Women's Suffrage Association, and leading militant suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst also gave talks at riotous meetings in the city. Author Sue Slack has been researching the archives in Cambridge to write this account of the role that Cambridge women played in the struggle for votes for women from the late nineteenth century to the first Act of Parliament in 1918 that granted women over the age of thirty the right to the vote and the Act of 1928 that gave women equal voting rights to men. Alongside the famous names are accounts of the many other roles that women of Cambridge took up in the fight for the right to vote. Many were involved in work during the First World War, including the founder of the Save the Children Fund; others were Pacifists. Some joined the International Women's Suffrage League. Many led local welfare and education reform after the war or founded local groups such as the WI or Girl Guides, and others went on to become the first women MPs, barristers, magistrates and surgeons in the country. This fascinating survey of Cambridge's role at the heart of the women's suffrage movement includes contemporary photographs and newspaper stories that are not widely known today.

Others were active in the various service industries that met the needs of those employed in the dockyard or the navy: a largescale tailoring industry that initially began in the production of service uniforms, but rapidly expanded to meet more general needs far beyond that of Portsmouth; brewing, with Portsmouth boasting more pubs per head of population than any other city in the UK; and, of course, entertainment, as its many theatres, cinemas and music halls provided alternative diversions for a large population of off-duty sailors. Portsmouth at Work explores the life of Portsmouth and its people, from pre-industrial beginnings through to the present day. In a fascinating series of contemporary photographs and illustrations it takes us through the phenomenal growth of the naval dockyard and the city's role as a major seaport, the part it played in both world wars and subsequent conflicts, and into the twenty-first century as Portsmouth has adapted to the reduced size of the British Navy with the development of other industries.

Secret Exeter
Few cities in the UK present a more favourable impression to visitors and residents alike than Exeter, the county town of Devon. Today it is a modern, thriving and pleasant city, known for its cathedral, university, busy array of shops, cafes and restaurants and historic quayside. However, beyond its quirky narrow streets or the modern charms of the newly revitalised Princesshay, Exeter is well known for its rich historical heritage, evident in its ancient but still partly present city walls, famous medieval underground passages and even in the recollections of those city residents who are old enough to remember the devastation of the Blitz in 1942. Exeter also has lesser-known aspects in its history, those forgotten fragments of the city's past that have thus far mostly eluded twenty-first-century attention. How many people today know of the devastating Victorian theatre fire, the mass executions or of the multiple sieges that the city has endured during centuries of warfare? In Secret Exeter, local authors Tim Isaac and Chris Hallam venture down the secluded streets and alleyways attempting to shed light on the neglected corners of Exeter's past.

Secret Romsey
Having been around for well over a millennium, there is a lot that is known about the town of Romsey, and there is a lot that isn't. From the first Romsey Abbey, which was founded in 907, religion has always been a strong presence in the town: whether it be Ethelflaeda, who ran the town's nunnery in the early medieval period and who would stand naked in the River Test in the middle of the night reciting religious chants for hours on end, or the wide variety of religious organisations that can be found there in the twenty-first century. More recent inhabitants and visitors include Jean-Pierre Blanchard who, a few months before he made the first balloon flight over the English Channel, landed his balloon through Lord Palmerston's park into the middle of the marketplace. Romsey is also known for the manufacture of jam and for having more pubs per person than any other town in the country at one time. Secret Romsey explores the lesser-known aspects of the town's past. With tales of remarkable characters, unusual events and tucked-away historical buildings, this book will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this Hampshire town.

Bath in 50 Buildings
The ancient city of Bath in Somerset grew up around hot springs on the River Avon, where the Romans founded baths at the location they named Aquae Sulis, the magnificent buildings of which still stand today. The health-giving fame of the waters brought wealth and visitors to the town in later centuries and Bath became an important and fashionable spa town during the Georgian period, attracting high society and gentry from London and around the country. Bath was transformed in the Georgian era as leading architects left a remarkable historical legacy, much of it built in the distinctive Bath stone. Despite being targeted in the Baedeker raids during the Second World War, the legacy of Bath's historical structures has remained intact, and the city has been recognised with its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Bath in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating city through a selection of its most interesting buildings. These buildings represent architectural and historic periods from Roman Britain to the present day including the Roman Baths, the medieval abbey church, the elegant sweep of the Georgian Royal Crescent, the striking Circus, the magnificent Pump Room and Assembly Rooms as well as many streets and squares of the period and Robert Adam's Pulteney Bridge. Twentieth-century and present-day architecture is also represented in Bath with new commercial and housing developments, its two universities, Thermae Spa and Southgate Shopping Precinct, theatres and other cultural centres. The book will appeal to all those who live in Bath or who have an interest in the city.

Chatham's Military Heritage
Chatham has a rich military heritage dating back to the Roman occupation. Remains of a Roman military building on the high ground above the town were discovered in 1779. Following the Battle of Aylesford in AD 455, this same strategic high ground was occupied by one of the victorious Jutish warlike tribes, the Ceatta from which the town takes its name. In Chatham's Military Heritage local military historian Clive Holden focuses on Chatham's most active military period from the founding of the Royal Dockyard in the mid-sixteenth century to the Royal Navy's withdrawal in 1984 and the subsequent run-down of its other military facilities since then. It covers Chatham's activities in both world wars, the Cold War and earlier conflicts with the Dutch and French. As well as the wars, the book details the development of the dockyard, the area's various barracks, buildings, forts and fortifications and the social and environmental effects they had on the locality, together with some of the major military personalities connected with the town.
