ALEXANDER MCQUEEN SAVAGE BEAUTY
By Andrew Bolton, with contributions by Susannah Frankel and Tim Blanks; Photography by Sølve Sundsbø
Alexander McQueen (British, 1969–2010) was one of the most influential, imaginative, and provocative designers of his generation. His clothing both challenged and expanded the conventional parameters of fashion to express ideas about culture, politics, and identity. Rare among designers, McQueen saw beyond clothing’s physical constraints to its ideological and conceptual possibilities, addressing questions related to race, class, gender, religion, sexuality, and the environment.
Featuring the most iconic and radical designs of his prolific career, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty examines the designer’s evolution from the start of his fledgling label, to his years as creative director at Givenchy in Paris, and finally to the collections of his own world-renowned London house. It reveals how McQueen adapted and combined the fundamentals of Savile Row tailoring, the specialized techniques of haute couture—such as lacework, embroidery, and featherwork—and technological innovation to achieve his distinctive aesthetic. It also focuses on the highly sophisticated narrative structures found in McQueen’s collections and in his extravagant runway presentations, which suggested the most avant-garde installation and performance art.
Published on the occasion of an exhibition organized by the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, this stunning book includes a preface by curator Andrew Bolton; an introduction by Susannah Frankel; an interview with Sarah Burton, creative director of the house of Alexander McQueen, conducted by Tim Blanks; and illuminating commentary from the designer himself. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty celebrates the astounding creativity and originality of a designer who relentlessly questioned and confronted the requisites of fashion.
240 pages, 293 full-color illustrations. 9 3/4'' x 13 1/8''. Hardcover, with lenticular image.

AN ATLAS OF GEOGRAPHICAL WONDERS
This is the first book to catalog comparative maps and tableaux that visualize the heights and lengths of the world's mountains and rivers. Produced predominantly in the nineteenth century, these beautifully rendered maps emerged out of the tide of exploration and scientific developments in measuring techniques. Beginning with the work of explorer Alexander von Humboldt, these historic drawings reveal a world of artistic and imaginative difference.
Many of them give way-and with visible joy-to the power of fantasy in a mesmerizing array of realistic and imaginary forms. Most of the maps are from the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection at Stanford University.

A must-have for Warhol fans and pop culture enthusiasts, this in-depth and comprehensive overview of Warhol's extraordinary career is packed with more than 2,000 illustrations culled from rarely seen archival material, documentary photography, and artwork.
ANIMAL PORTRAITS GREAT BOOK OF
In 1484, the beautiful Stoat decided to charge the best painter of Florence, and probably the world, with a portrait. A penguin of aristocratic origin is pleased to be painted as the proud renaissance animal showing all its power. But, in reality, who was that person? Had he coincided in the painter’s study with Federico de Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino? In the self portrait of the Lion, may we deduce that Durero was his master? A game between fantasy and reality, an exceptional gallery where the animals take on the leading role, up to now, unknown in art.
Opening windows on art, sharing pleasure in painting, challenging a classical portrait… are the aims OQO brings closer to the world of art in the first issue of its new collection OQart.
The great book of animal portraits was conceived by Svjetian Junakovic and OQO to give documentary proof that, throughout history, animals, in their best dress, posed for the most famous portrait painters.
Svjetlan Junakovic made the selection responding to theoretical and practical requirements of the era (norms of animal beauty, social customs, and construction condition of the image in the space…), and with a ludic and suggestive proposal, advises us that any resemblance to any of the most famous portraits of the human type will be quite by chance…
But in the elusive, impenetrable countenance of Stoat, don’t we recognize the Dama… by Leonardo? What is hidden behind the crime of the chicken in the bath? Who is the letter addressed to? Does this animal have anything to do with the revolutionary Marat, killed under similar circumstances? Death and beauty in the same tunic of enigma and mystery…
These and other questions, never completely resolved, shall rouse the curiosity in the observer, in an exceptional gallery unknown to the world of art. It’s enough to know that one day they existed…

Now available in a new format, this lavishly illustrated volume explores Art Deco art and design from its origin to its present day influences. The Art Deco style is so recognizable and widespread that its original impact on the culture in which it emerged has been all but lost in the clutter of imitation. This book draws our attention back to the birth of Art Deco—a period between two devastating world wars when industrialization was flourishing, interest in archaeology was peaking, and movements such as Cubism, Constructivism, Futurism, and Modernism were turning the art world on its head. Brilliantly designed to reflect the style it celebrates, Art Deco is filled with hundreds of examples of painting, architecture, interiors, jewelry, crafts, furniture, and fashion.
ART FORMS IN NATURE PRINTS OF ERNST HAECKEL
The geometric shapes and natural forms, captured with exceptional precision in Ernst Haeckel's prints, still influence artists and designers to this day. This volume highlights the research and findings of this natural scientist. Powerful modern microscopes have confirmed the accuracy of Haeckel's prints, which even in their day, became world famous. Haeckel's portfolio, first published between 1899 and 1904 in separate installments, is described in the opening essays. The plates illustrate Haeckel's fundamental monistic notion of the "unity of all living things" and the wide variety of forms are executed with utmost delicacy. Incipient microscopic organisms are juxtaposed with highly developed plants and animals. The pages, ordered according to geometric and "constructive" aspects, document the oness of the world in its most diversified forms. This collection of plates was not only well-received by scientists, but by artists and architects as well. Rene Binet, a pioneer of glass and iron constructions, Emile Galle, a renowned Art Nouveau designer, and the photographer Karl Blossfeld all make explicit reference to Haeckel in their work.
ART OF THE BALTIC STATES (T&H)
