A 60-recipe book from an internationally acclaimed chef/brewer duo dedicated to elevating and pairing beer with high-end dining. The debut book by Danish gypsy brewer Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø of the bar Tørst, and Canadian chef Daniel Burns of the Michelin-starred restaurant Luksus—both in a shared space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn where they elevate beer to the level of wine in fine dining. With a dialogue running throughout the book, Food & Beer examines the vision and philosophy of this duo at the forefront of a new gastronomic movement. With a stunning, bold aesthetic, the design will highlight the dual visions of the authors and the spaces—Tørst, which is more rustic and relaxed, and Luksus, which is more sleek and refined. Foreword by internationally renowned chef René Redzepi, co-owner of Noma, Copenhagen, the #3 restaurant in the world.

This book is a dazzling compilation of dream houses with a view, photographed by James Silverman on his travels. Whether of a remote mountain cabin in Norway, a sensuous desert oasis in Morocco, or a monolithic concrete home in Switzerland, Silverman’s photographs capture the seemingly uninterrupted flow between interiors and exteriors. The featured architecture is defined by elements that absorb, reflect, or deliberately break with their surroundings.
Silverman’s images play with perspective and sight lines. They underline the harmony of perfectly composed juxtapositions of built structures and natural landscapes. Collected here, they also show how “infinite space” has established itself as a key precept of contemporary architecture around the world.
The May issue of Wallpaper Magazine starts off by delving into the veggie epicurean predilections of Olafur Eliasson's eponymous studio with a new book by Phaidon, before exploring Patricia Urquiola's sensually ribbed metalwork collection, produced in collaboration with Georg Jensen, and getting hung up on Paul Smith and Gufram's technicolour cactus coatstand. Wallpaper traipses around Philipp Mainzer's new distillery for the Black Forest's Monkey 47 gin on, before crossing the Atlantic, to a trio of irresistible summer, winter and urban retreats across two continents for the 'In residence' section. Expect bracing industrial light works from André Fu and Czech behemoth Lasvit; Karakter's resuscitation of dormant Achille Castiglioni shelving designs; an introduction to Swarovski's new Atelier Swarovski Home brand, which harnesses the creative talents of designers as esteemed as Aldo Bakker, Raw-Edges and Fredrikson Stallard, among others. As if that wasn't enough, there's the Time 2016 horological supplement (featuring new offerings from Hublot, Rolex and Jaime Hayon; fresh picks from from Baswelworld and SIHH; and a guest appearance from none other than Éric Cantona).

The creator of some of the most popular, enduring images of late 20th-century art, Keith Haring was also an iconic figure of the downtown New York scene in the 80's.
Christina Clausen's documentary offers an affectionate, deeply personal glimpse into Haring's life, from his early years growing up in a small, conservative Pennsylvania town to his heyday as a world-renowned artist, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Madonna, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Grace Jones, Yoko Ono, among many others.
Lacking a formal narrative, Andy Warhol's art house classic follows various residents of the Chelsea Hotel in 1966 New York City, presented in a split screen with a single audio track in conjunction with one side of screen.
