Designed in the USSR: 1950-1989
Phaidon 2018, ISBN: 9780714875576
4653руб Купить
A fascinating glimpse into design behind the Iron Curtain, revealed through the products and graphics of everyday Soviet life. This captivating survey of Soviet design from 1950 to 1989 features more than 350 items from the Moscow Design Museum’s unique collection. From children’s toys, homewares, and fashion to posters, electronics, and space-race ephemera, each object reveals something of life in a planned economy during a fascinating time in Russia’s history. Organized into three chapters — Citizen, State, and World — the book is a micro-to-macro tour of the functional, kitsch, politicized, and often avant-garde designs from this largely undocumented period.
 
Faberge Rediscovered
Юпитер-Импэкс 2018, ISBN: 9781911282167
6585руб Купить
The firm of Faberge, jeweller to the Russian court, was founded in St. Petersburg in 1842. Expanded by the founder’s son, Peter Carl Faberge (1846-1920), the firm became one of the most famous jewellers of the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Major American collectors, such as Marjorie Merriweather Post, played a significant role in Faberge’s fame after the fall of the imperial regime, and her mansion at Hillwood in Washington, DC now has a collection that includes two imperial Easter eggs, silver, jewellery, hardstone, and religious items. With new photography, exquisite works of art and illuminating focus spreads by Faberge experts, this new volume presents the firm in the broader history of nineteenth to twentieth century jewellery and goldsmithing, and documents new attributions and provenances.
 
Holidays in Soviet Sanatoriums
Fuel 2018, ISBN: 9780993191190
3381руб Купить
Architecturally diverse and ideologically staunch, Soviet sanatoriums were intended to edify and invigorate Visiting a Soviet sanatorium is like stepping back in time. Originally built in the 1920s, they afforded workers a place to holiday, courtesy of a state-funded voucher system. At their peak they were visited by millions of citizens across the USSR every year. A combination of medical institution and spa, the era’s sanatoriums are among the most innovative buildings of their time. Although aesthetically diverse, Soviet utopian values permeated every aspect of these structures; Western holidays were perceived as decadent. By contrast, sanatorium breaks were intended to edify and strengthen visitors: health professionals carefully monitored guests throughout their stay, so they could return to work with renewed vigor. Certain sanatoriums became known for their specialist treatments, such as crude-oil baths, radon water douches and stints in underground salt caves. While today some sanatoriums are in critical states of decline, many are still fully operational and continue to offer their Soviet-era treatments to visitors. Using specially commissioned photographs by leading photographers of the post-Soviet territories, and texts by sanatorium expert Maryam Omidi, this book documents over 45 sanatoriums and their unconventional treatments. From Armenia to Uzbekistan, it represents the most comprehensive survey to date of this fascinating and previously overlooked Soviet institution.

Fuel 2018, ISBN: 9780993191145
1836руб Купить
From Sputnik to Gorbachev: an intricately detailed graphic exploration of Russian history that only you can complete This coloring book for all ages marks the first publication of the graphic works of Russian artist Amanita. His fantastical images form a unique world: they are like modern variations of illustrated manuscripts, packed full with elements of Soviet and post-Soviet cultures. The book also works as an introduction to the Russian alphabet. Every drawing depicts a word beginning with each letter from the Cyrillic alphabet, also shown in English, giving a light-hearted guide as to how the letters look and sound. The subjects of Amanita’s illustrations are wide-ranging: from political leaders (Lenin, Gorbachev) to inanimate objects (Tupolev aircraft, Sputnik, Tsars, cosmonauts) and Constructivism, these classic Soviet themes are interwoven from one page to the next, all rendered in an abundance of detail. Amanita’s amazing and skillful images define a previously unimagined graphic landscape that takes the humble coloring book into a new dimension. Russian Alphabet Colouring Book is the perfect gift book. Alexander Erashov was born in Ermak, Kazakhstan, in 1972. The pseudonym Amanita (a red-and-white spotted mushroom) is a reference to the black-white-red palette of his artworks.

Equus by Tim Flach (Mini)

No animal has captured the human imagination quite like the horse, depicted in cave drawings thousands of years ago through countless rendering in paint, clay, ink, even film. In his first book, award-winning photographer Tim Flach’s quest to document the horse has resulted in Equus, an intensely moving look at an animalas a solitary subject and en masse, from the air and from underwater whose history is so powerfully linked to our own. This highly successful book, originally published in 2008, is now available in a new, more affordable format. From exquisite Arabians in the Royal Yards of the United Arab Emirates to the purebred Icelandic horses in their glacial habitat; from the soulful gaze of a single horse’s lash-lined eye, to the thundering majesty of thousands of mustangs racing across the plains of Utah, Equus provides an amazing and unique insight into the physical dynamics and spirit of the horse.

LOOK. David Bailey, Higgins Jackie
Phaidon 2018, ISBN: 978-0-7148-5783-1
1675руб Купить
One of the first celebrity photographers, David Bailey socialized with many of the cultural icons of the 60s — he lived with Mick Jagger, married the legendary French film actress Catherine Deneuve and had relationships with the models Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree. Along with Brian Duffy and Terence Donovan, he was one of the ’Terrible Trio’ — self-taught East End boys who rebelled against the precious style of fashion portraiture as practiced by society photographers like Cecil Beaton and Norman Parkinson. His own fame was confirmed when director Michelangelo Antonioni used him as inspiration for the character of fast-living photographer Thomas Hemmings in cult film «Blow-Up» (1966). Outside the world of fashion photography, Bailey has pursued numerous personal and commercial projects; documenting the streetscapes of London, photographing the people and places of Havana, Cuba, and producing an intimate series of portraits of model Catherine Bailey, his current wife. He has also created record-sleeve art, feature films, documentaries and around 500 commercials. The vigour and variety of his work has made him the subject of numerous exhibitions, including a major traveling show that opened at the Barbican, London, in 1999 entitled «The Birth of Cool». This handsome monograph provides an overview of Bailey’s career, including works from key monographs such as his debut Box of Pin-Ups (1964) and the controversial series The Lady is a Tramp (1995). The book, on a photographer whose reputation only continues to grow, will appeal to all photography enthusiasts and students, and to anyone with an interest in popular culture of the 1960s onwards.
