Don McCullin is among our era's greatest photographers, eyewitness to the "hearts of darkness" of wars, humanitarian tragedies, and social dramas that have marked the second half of the cruel century we have left behind. His images focus on dramatic framing, the expressiveness and powerful impact of close-ups, the movements of bodies silhouetted in space, and strong chiaroscuro accentuated and dominated by his velvety blacks. But he is also the author of unforgettable landscapes, almost always photographed in winter, at dawn or dusk. In this publication the photographic testimonies McCullin gathered from the world's frontlines and humanitarian disasters pass before our eyes one after another : images of the Berlin Wall's construction; wars in Vietnam and Cambodia ; bloody conflicts in the Middle East ; and victims of famine in Biafra, cholera in Bangladesh and AIDS in Africa - to mention just a few. Then there are the merciless depictions McCullin made of his homeland, England, photographing the most contradictory "faces" of that society : gangs and teddy boys, the homeless and the unemployed, and the nobility attending the Ascot races. This monograph is completed by images from recent decades : still lifes like the votive altars he erects at home; views of the English countryside around his house; so-called "primitive peoples" in various parts of the world; and the ruins of Rome's glorious past, for which he developed a keen interest through his friendship with Bruce Chatwin.

In Photography After Frank, former New York Times writer and picture editor Philip Gefter presents the tale of contemporary photography, starting with a pivotal moment: Robert Franks seminal work in the 1950s. Along the way, he connects the dots of photographys transformation into what it is today. Gefter begins with Franks challenge to the notion of photographys objectivity with the grainy, off-handed spontaneity of The Americans. Next comes the staged document and postmodernisms further challenge to image fidelity. Other themes are photojournalism, the diversity of portraiture, the influence of private and corporate collections on curatorial decisions, and how the market shapes art making. Throughout the book, Gefter deftly connects Franks legacy with the work of dozens of important individual artists who followed in his wake, from Lee Friedlander and Nan Goldin to Stephen Shore and Ryan McGinley. The book includes texts written exclusively for this publication as well as essays drawn from Gefters critical writings, reviews, and even obituaries. Photography After Frank offers a page-turning yet journalistic approach bound to appeal to students and artworld aficionados, alike.

Baudelaire composed the series of prose poems known as Paris Spleen between 1855 and his death in 1867. He attached great importance to his work in this then unusual form, asking, "Which one of us, in his moments of ambition, has not dreamed of the miracle of a poetic prose, musical, without rhythm and without rhyme, supple enough and rugged enough to adapt itself to the lyrical impulses of the soul, the undulations of reverie, the jibes of conscience?"

These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all. Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.

Lester Young fading away in a hotel room; Charles Mingus storming down the streets of New York on a too-small bicycle; Thelonius Monk creating his own private language on the piano. . . In eight poetically charged vignettes, Geoff Dyer skilfully evokes the embattled lives of the players who shaped modern jazz. He draws on photos and anecdotes, but music is the driving force of But Beautiful and Dyer brings it to life in luminescent and wildly metaphoric prose that mirrors the quirks, eccentricity, and brilliance of each musician's style.

Returning with him to the magical kingdom of Fionavar to attend a festival, they soon discover that they are being drawn into the conflict between the dark and the light…. Praise for Guy Gavriel Kay "[Kay] stunningly weaves Arthurian legends into the fluid mix of Celtic, Nordic, and Teutonic, creating a grand fantasy that sweeps readers into a heroic struggle that the author makes all the more memorable because of the tributes he pays to past masters…. Kay is undoubtedly one of the Canadian masters of high fantasy." —Jeffrey Canton “Kay is a genius.” —Brandon Sanderson “As captivating as any classic of the fantasy field.” —Maclean’s “Can only be compared to Tolkien’s masterpiece. This is a series to cherish and reread.” —The Star-Phoenix “The essence of high fantasy.” —Locus

Theodosia Throckmorton has her hands full at the Museum of Legends and Antiquities in London. Her father may be head curator, but it is Theo—and only Theo—who is able to see all the black magic and ancient curses that still cling to the artifacts in the museum. Sneaking behind her father’s back, Theo uses old, nearly forgotten Egyptian magic to remove the curses and protect her father and the rest of the museum employees from the ancient, sinister forces that lurk in the museum’s dark hallways.
