  • French cuisine for today's kitchens. An evocative, intimate food monograph by the duo behind one of the most acclaimed restaurant collections in France - the Michelin starred restaurant group that has moved French cuisine from the ceremony and grandeur of haute cuisine to a lighter, fresher and more approachable style of cooking.

    This much-anticipated debut book celebrates ten years of chef Bertrand Grébaut and partner Théophile Pourriat's success. Its highly inspiring recipes demonstrate how they have moved French cuisine away from the ceremony and grandeur of haute cuisine. By introducing an air of simplicity and modernity to their cooking, they gained a legion of admirers, not only for their much-praised Parisian restaurant Septime but for their work in all four of their premises featured in the book. With a preface by acclaimed chef Alain Passard and natural winemaker Thierry Puzelat.

  • Legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz's surprising - and surprised - account of her encounters with fashion.

    'Looking back at my work, I see that fashion has always been there,' Annie Leibovitz observes in the preface to her new book, Wonderland.
    'Fashion plays a part in the scheme of everything, but photography always comes first for me.
    The photograph is the most important part.
    And photography is so big that it can encompass journalism, portraiture, reportage, family photographs, fashion. . . . My work for Vogue fueled the fire for a kind of photography that I might not otherwise have explored.'

    Since the introduction of portable consumer electronics nearly a half century ago, artists throughout the world have adapted their latest technologies to art-making. In this book, curator Barbara London traces the history of video art as it transformed into the broader field of media art - from analog to digital, small TV monitors to wall-scale projections, and clunky hardware to user-friendly software.
