Thames & Hudson
In 2010, journalist and author Will Jones gave up London life to move to rural Canada with his young family. His dream was to build a remote cabin in the woods that would be a silent retreat from the world. This is the story of how he created the ultimate hideaway, inspired by cabin-building practices around the world.
Throughout history, people around the world have built cabins as homes, nature-watching huts and even follies. In recent times, many have been drawn to cabin-building by a yearning to connect with nature and spend time in the wilderness. From the homes of indigenous peoples and the settlers of the New World to contemporary Nordic summer homes and artists’ retreats, the emotive lure of cabin-building shows no sign of abating. In this book, Will Jones explores the history and romance of cabin-building and delves into the architectural styles, vernacular idiosyncrasies and tools and techniques of historical and modern builders.
Weaving the personal story of his cabin build with illustrated practical know-how on everything from deciding on site and orientation, to foundations and interior design, Jones’s essential book is full of inspirational ideas. The urge to escape the city and live in nature has never been stronger. Part story, part history and part practical guide, this is the ultimate read for anyone dreaming of building a cabin of their own.

David Hockney: Normandy Portraits accompanies a major exhibition on David Hockney at the National Portrait Gallery, London. It reveals new portraits painted in Hockney's Normandy Studio between 2020 and 2022.
David Hockney: Normandy Portraits illustrates around 40 acrylic on canvas works painted by Hockney at his Normandy studio – depicting his friends and visitors, including his partner JP, pop-star sensation Harry Styles, and the artist himself. This image-led book product will showcase a series of some previously unseen portraits, through 48 pages, uninterrupted by text, to allow readers to engage directly with the artworks that will be on display at the National Portrait Gallery as well as some added exclusives. These works highlight the ongoing importance of portraiture within the artist’s practice and demonstrate his sentiment that ‘drawings and paintings … are a lot better than photographs to give you a sense of the person’. Hockney returned to painting after an intensive period spent depicting the Normandy landscape using an iPad. The portraits were painted quickly and directly onto the canvas without under drawing. As Hockney has said ‘to do a portrait slowly is a bit of a contradiction’.

Hvor begynder Tal R’s maleri?
Var det, da et par kunstnere fra Køln besøgte kunstakademiet i København i 1998? Var det mødet med 1990’ernes videokunstnere, der viste en ny vej for det figurative maleri? Eller begyndte det længe før akademitiden med et maleri af lyserøde nazister?
I mere end 25 år har Tal R været en uomgængelig figur på den danske kunstscene. Lige fra starten drømte han om at male og om at fortælle historier, også selvom tiden ikke var til ”den store fortælling” og da slet ikke i maleriet. Man måtte ”sidelæns ind i maleriet”, som Tal R udtrykker det. ‘Tal R Maleri’ er den første samlede præsentation af hans mangefacetterede maleriske praksis. Den følger det formskiftende maleri fra 1990’erne og frem til i dag, hvor Tal R er internationalt anerkendt som en markant fornyer af det figurative maleri.
Bogen er skrevet af Pernille Albrethsen, kunstkritiker på Weekendavisen og København-redaktør for det skandinaviske onlinemagasin Kunstkritikk. Hun har en cand.mag. i moderne kultur fra Københavns Universitet og New York University.

With pieces drawn from the extensive personal collection of Pharrell Williams, this is a stunning and unprecedented exploration of the “bling” in hip-hop culture and fashion.
Few recording artists have had a greater hand in incorporating the culture of hip-hop into contemporary luxury than Pharrell Williams. Collaborating with Louis Vuitton nearly two decades ago, Pharrell was the first to have his designs integrated into the haute joaillerie of the great maisons. His innovative team-ups continue through to the present day, most memorably with Tiffany and Chanel, and the watchmaker Richard Mille.
The most extravagant of these chains, rings, and pendants—crafted in precious metals and studded with gems—are as much a part of Pharrell’s musical performance as they are of his personal style. His designs, which include one-off pieces such as solid-gold cases for mobile phones and handheld game consoles, have been legendary for featuring iconography of Pharrell’s own brands, Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream.
This book was originally published with two different colored covers. Customers will be shipped either of the colors at random.
Featured in the book are over 100 pieces, many of which he created in tandem with some of the most recognizable designers in the industry—such as Jacob & Co, Yoon & Verbal, and Lorraine Schwartz. With frequent collaborators such as NIGO® and Tyler the Creator, Pharrell discusses his role in the evolution of hip-hop jewelry, the processes involved in the creation of his one-of-a-kind custom pieces, and the state of connoisseurship in a growing market for the most extravagant of hip-hop collectibles.

An extravagant monument to a unique collaboration in the worlds of art and fashion: the Autumn-Winter 2022 collection of the luxury brand AMIRI, created in partnership with the painter Wes Lang.
Rooted in the culture of Los Angeles—the place both designer and artist call home—AMIRI’s Autumn-Winter 2022 collection is an exploration of the city’s aesthetic heritage. Mixing high with low, extravagance with subtlety, the collection reflects the intersection of worlds—rock, skate, luxe, craft, art, glam—that defines Los Angeles style. Throughout the collection, Wes Lang’s painterly interventions introduce elements of subversion and energy to AMIRI’s pieces.
The book meticulously documents the creative process, from the design of key silhouettes to the hand-painting of original works onto individual garments. Hundreds of photographs, taken specially for the book by the artist duo Hart Lëshkina, go behind the scenes in AMIRI’s atelier and Lang’s studio, revealing the collection’s evolution from sketches to clothing and finally to the star-studded runway show, cinematically illuminated with Lang’s artwork, at which the line debuted in the spring of 2022.
Elaborately designed with spectacular gatefold pages and booklets, and with texts by fashion editor Dan Thawley and art critic Andrew Berardini alongside the voices of Mike Amiri and Wes Lang, this book is a testament to the power of collaboration and an impressive record of an iconic moment in contemporary art and fashion.
