Why French women of a certain age are the consummate hostesses, homemakers, and style icons and how you can be, too. Frenchwomen--particularly those 40 and over--are role models for stylish and gracious living, what the French call l'art de vivre. American-born fashion journalist Tish Jett, who has studied these women for years, shared their beauty secrets in her first book, Forever Chic. Now she explores why Frenchwomen of a certain age are master hostesses and homemakers, expert practioners of les bonnes maniиres as well as everyday elegance, savoir-faire, and as a result, la joie de vivre. Jett explains how to entertain like a Frenchwoman, including a glimpse into the typical French larder from which a delicious meal can be thrown together with ease, to detailed instruction on laying a beautiful table and crafting a perfect cheese plate (did you know that when cutting from a wedge of cheese, slice from the back to the point, which is the "heart" of the cheese, and as such considered the best part and not to be lopped off so others cannot enjoy it). She explores everyday style and elegance, disclosing how to create that special bien dans sa peau (to feel good about oneself) sensation so coveted by Frenchwomen. Jett also shares the importance of discipline, which goes hand in hand with beauty a well-ordered closet, be it for clothes or linens, translates to easy everyday elegance. With tips on adjusting your beauty and style regimes seasonally, charmingly packaged with color illustrations, Living Forever Chic is a delightful gift for the Francophile in your life.

In forty years of activity, the Diesel brand has managed to construct a world that communicates values of rebellion, nonconformity, and individuality. This book celebrates Diesel s irreverence and innovation in the rejection of the often overly serious vernacular that surrounds denim. Diesel s denim has really been the gateway into a much wider and larger lifestyle arc, masterminded by Renzo Rosso. Denim is the fabric of Diesel, but in-between the warp and weft of those threads, what Diesel really communicates is something that goes far beyond the physical garment. In addition to shooting and recontextualizing the archives, the volume also looks at the present, on how the denim permeates and punctuates Diesel s world today, concluding with the exciting output from Diesel Red Tag as more and more collaborators (Shayne Oliver, Glenn Martens, and more to come) are added to the fold. This volume is not an academic study, nor is it a chronological retelling of Diesel s history in denim. It is a tongue-in-cheek compendium about Diesel s denim universe. New images shot by four different photographers are interspersed with archival visual material, campaigns, and editorials.

For those who love or have collected early Bob Dylan bootleg albums, an archive of never before published photographs of the young Dylan, when he first moved to New York City in the early 1960s.

A freelance photographer on the lookout for good subjects, Russell was intrigued by a rave review from The New York Times of the raw-voiced folk singer. Russell’s subject was a twenty-year-old Bob Dylan, a young folk singer whom nobody knew, and Russell photographed Dylan in 1961.Bob Dylan is a window into the singer/songwriter who would go on to become one of America’s greatest musical treasures: the book contains photos of Dylan in his tiny Greenwich Village apartment, writing and practicing; snuggling with girlfriend Suze Rotolo; and performing at celebrated folk club Gerde’s. Bob Dylan is an important chronicle of the days just prior to Bob Dylan’s celebrity and the perfect tribute both for Dylan and rock history fans.

Hiroshi Sugimoto, one of Japan’s best-known photographers, turns his lens on Italy’s architectural masterworks to create a meditation on the potential of cultural exchange and the possibility of cultural fusion. In an electrifying moment in 1585, four Japanese youths appeared before Pope Gregory XIII, summoned to his court from the nascent Christian community in Japan to present themselves at the capital of their faith. Legendary photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto follows in the boys’ footsteps, capturing the architectural wonders of Rome, Florence, and Venice as the Eastern visitors might have seen them on their grand tour. Sugimoto’s images present each chapel and theater as a marvel, imposing and dark. He contextualizes his photographs with Japanese works from the period and the decades that follow. These panels and objects attest to the impact of Western culture, specifically Jesuit Christianity, on Momoyama and Edo aesthetics as Japanese artists envisioned scenes of European life.
