Holocuast


The Holocaust was the systematic murder of Europe's Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators during the Second World War. An understanding of the historical circumstances that fed the Holocaust remains the essential means of making sense of the inexplicable crimes that occurred. This commemorative volume describes Jewish life before the spread of Nazism in Europe and Nazi ideologies. The author discusses the mass murder, the death camps such as Auschwitz, the perpetrators, the witnesses, the escapees, the refugee havens and the 10,000 Kindertransport youngsters who were given safe haven in Britain. We are told stories of the resistance, acts of heroism, survivors and those who risked their lives to save the Jews. Finally, we learn about the liberation of the camps, the resettlement of the Jews and how the events are remembered now. The 15 removable documents included in this book have been carefully selected to take us beyond the horrifying statistics and remind us that each number was a person. They include: letter describing Kristallnacht and a diary extract about life in the ghetto; list of Jews to be transported, including place of departure and destination; and drawings by a child incarcerated at Theresienstadt concentration camp.

Oliviero Toscani


Toscani's photography often depicts what no one has ever dared to explore before in advertising, such as homosexuality, racism and anorexia. This magnificent volume explores the creative force behind brands and advertising campaigns, focusing on the finest examples of his work. Interspersed throughout are collected stories of the life of the man behind the lense from some of the major personalities in the creative industries. Contributors include the photographers, David Baily and Rankin, fashion designer Issey Miyake, designers Philippe Starck adn Kenzo Takada, the musician Peter Gabriel and film director and actor, Mathieu Kassovitz, and the entrepreneur Luciano Benetton. The book features Toscani's advertising campaigns, particularly his work with Benetton from 1982 to 2000, which was some of the most shocking advertising ever seen: in some cases provoking lawsuits and the removal of Benetton clothing from stores. However, Toscani worked wonders for the company, making it into one of the world's most recognised clothing brands - despite no items of clothing appearing in the campaigns between 1990 and 2000.Throughout the years he has also created corporate images and campaigns for companies such as Esprit, Chanel, Fiorucci, Prenatal and many more. He has collaborated as fashion photographer for international magazines such as Elle, Vogue, GQ, Harper's Bazaar, Esquire, and Liberation.

Lost Buildings


Have you ever wished that you could have seen King Solomon's mighty Temple in Jerusalem or climbed to the top of the legendary Tower of Babel? What must it have been like to have paraded up and down the great glass galleries of the Crystal Palace in London in 1851? Why is the Euston Arch, demolished in 1961, still missed? What would buildings described in much loved books have been like if these had existed outside their author's imaginations? Imagine walking through the labyrinthine corridors of Mervyn Peake's mythical Gothic fortress Gormenghast, or visiting Toad Hall. And what of the current trend for reconstructing buildings which were destroyed in wartime or for political reasons? Lost Buildings is an invitation to visit buildings long vanished or those demolished within living history, some by dim politicians, others by war or "acts of God", that we would pay good money and travel a long way to see, if only they existed, today. It looks, too, at buildings from literature, myth and children's stories, and some lost opportunities - fantastic, ambitious designs that were never built.There are countless buildings that remain vivid in the collective memory, whether they were once real or were only ever imagined. Lost Buildings brings these together for the reader's curiosity and delight

Woody Allen Film by Film


Since he first vented his neuroses on the big screen in 1965, Woody Allen has enjoyed a career unlike any other writer or director in cinema. The impact of his comedy and his psychoanalysis of the modern world have been hugely influential and had a profound effect on popular culture ever since. Woody Allen is unarguably one of cinema's most successful and renowned auteurs, a filmmaker who has influenced the zeitgeist more than any other, and a director every actor wants to work with. Everyone has their favourite Woody film - whether it's his nervous but hilarious urban romances such as Annie Hall or Manhattan, or the later, lighter dramas such as Vicky Cristina Barcelona or Blue Jasmine. Woody Allen has never failed to release a movie every year, on time and on budget. As Woody said about himself: "The two biggest myths about me are that I'm an intellectual, because I wear these glasses, and that I'm an artist because my films lose money." As self-critical as ever, Woody Allen remains a force to be reckoned with. Woody Allen: Film by Film covers 50 years of ground-breaking cinema and explores each one of the director's movies, making it the most complete critical analysis of the filmmaker's work to date. Written by highly respected film critic Jason Solomons and featuring a revealing new interview between the author and Woody, this sumptuously illustrated biography through film is an insightful, entertaining and authoritative exploration into the mind of one of the world's most complex, creative and best-loved directors.
