Sotheby's Cafe Cookbook

Auteur: Laura Greenfield
A celebration of food and art

Entering its tenth year, Sotheby's Cafe, remains a sensational success with an eclectic mix of fine art collectors and dealers, tourists and Bond Street fashionistas.To celebrate this anniversary, head chef Laura Greenfield presents 40 of her favourite recipes, organised by season and complemented by wine recommendations and anecdotes from Serena Sutcliffe, MW, head of the Sotheby's wine department. Each recipe is illustrated with either food photography or an artwork sold by Sotheby's, ranging from Chinese porcelain to Contemporary art, creating a visual feast for food and art lovers alike. Eight unique articles will be interspersed throughout the book. Written in the form of conversations between Sotheby's specialists and leading experts in their fields, the articles cover such diverse topics as the caf, culture of the Impressionists; the 19th century fashions for dining rooms and their impact on decorative arts; tea and porcelain: from Asia to England.

Auteur: Jasper Krabbe

Jasper Krabbé dwaalde door de depots van het Tropenmuseum. Met de daar gevonden collectiestukken én eigen werk creëerde hij vervolgens ensembles die een nieuwe en persoonlijke kijk geven op zowel zijn eigen werk, als de collectie.
Het levert een bijzondere tentoonstelling op en een al even bijzonder boek. Krabbé nodigt de kijker uit in zijn ideale huis. Een huis met negen kamers. Zo dwaal je door de Hallway vol textiel en erotische prenten uit China, door de Smoking Room met rookgerei en Indonesische portretten en door de donkere Bedroom met kasten en wichelboeken uit Sumatra. Telkens worden verrassende, nieuwe verbanden gelegd tussen kunstenaars, materialen en vormen en emoties en inspiratie. Soulmade is een zeer persoonlijk boek over verbanden tussen kunst uit alle windstreken.
Beeldend kunstenaar Jasper Krabbé (1970) is telg uit een geslacht van beeldend kunstenaars. Hij studeerde cum laude af aan de Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam en aan de Cooper Union New York.

Storybook Culture

Auteur: Homme
The art of popular children's books

Remember hiding under the covers and being swept away by a fantastical tale while clutching a flashlight? Sure, it began with Dick and Jane, but soon moved on to the more sophisticated Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys, and before you knew it, the journey was out of this world with Tom Swift Jr. and his science-adventure sagas. These illustrations and stories are not lost. They are here just as you remember them in Storybook Culture. Abundantly illustrated, this study in American culture tells the history of the stories, the authors, the illustrators, and the art that sold seven decades on the power of the imagination. This sentimental voyage is sure to evoke fond memories of childhood and, if only for a moment, recapture the innocence of youth.

About the Authors:
Joe and Cheryl Homme have contributed to a variety of publications and media, from a comedy column in a small newspaper, to copy for radio broadcast, and human-interest pieces. The Hommes find their writing projects to be quite rewarding due to the education they have received through their tireless research and from the enjoyment they garner from working together. To their passion for children's literature was added the passion of many people who held similar feelings for the books of their childhood. That is how the project that would become Storybook Culture began. Nearly two years in the making, this book celebrates the illustrators and authors, and speaks of the Homme's admiration and respect for this fascinating subject.

Auteur: M. Hampshire

This fact-packed, beautifully illustrated handbook is also a sourcebook of hundreds of ideas for the imaginative use of stripes in every type of design, featuring examples of stripes in graphics, art, fashion, product design, interiors, architecture, retail, and information design.

While Communicating with Pattern: Stripes is a unique look at how we design and communicate with a single pattern, it is only the first in a series that forms a "bible of pattern" for designers from every walk of life.
