Playing with Fire: Paintings by Carlos Almaraz is the first full-length monograph devoted to an artist known for both his politically engaged cultural production as well as his vibrant, highly sought-after studio art, particularly his scenes of car crashes and pastoral depictions of L.A.’s Echo Park. Among the leading figures whose artistic, cultural, and political motivations catalyzed the Chicano Art movement in the 1970s, Almaraz began his career with works for the United Farm Workers and cofounded the important artists collective Los Four. Although he saw himself as an activist, Almaraz straddled multiple — and often contradictory — identities that drew from divergent cultures and approaches, and his work became less overtly political and more personal, psychological, dreamlike, and even mystical as he evolved artistically. The book features more than 60 works, mostly from the late 1970s through 1989, the year of the artist’s untimely death at age 48, as well as selections from his journals and recollections from numerous colleagues and friends who knew him throughout his career.

Like British pop music, Italian food, and German Cars, Dutch interior design is evolving into a trademark with its own quality seal. Leonie Hendrikse and Jeroen Stock are becoming the archetype of this new mastery in design. Under the Stock Interiors label, they fuse the Dutch interior design creed: joyful experimentation unbound by convention with their own unique touch. The imaginative designs created at Stock Interiors center on the idea that memories are the colorful foundation of our lives. Their passion is learning about the homeowner’s personality and memories, and translating them into an interior design that fits like a glove. You will fall in love with the featured homes and apartments that immediately embrace you with a wonderfully homey ambiance. Dutch Interior Design introduces you to the sumptuous designs of Leonie Hendrikse and Jeroen Stock with beautiful photography and incisive commentary. Superstar saxophone player and Stock Interiors customer, Candy Dulfer, compares their artistry to her own, saying “Great music is like a jigsaw puzzle: oddly-shaped interlocking pieces form a unique composition. Open this book to discover that the creations of Stock are just like a beautifully-composed song.”

The strange piece of art that hangs over the bed. The well-organized sneaker collection. Artifacts—sinfully expensive or of sentimental value—from all over the world. The things you find in other people’s homes spark the imagination, inspire one’s own design efforts, and speak volumes about the character, dreams, and essence of the residents. Over the past years, Welt am Sonntag visited the homes of creative workers, artists, and style influencers all over the world and shared them with us via home stories: the daughter of design icon Verner Panton, the son of the legendary artist, Fornasetti, an attorney with a mania for collecting, a jewelry designer in London, an American hairstylist to the stars, and Berlin’s most controversial architect. Instead of high-gloss photography productions where every object is carefully placed at the correct angle in order to showcase “perfect” taste, the images here are intimate encounters on familiar terrain that give us insight into unexplored worlds: private, curious, and eccentric. Style experts and co-authors, Adriano Sack and Dagmar von Taube, have compiled these visual short stories into a fascinating photo volume that is a wonderful source of ideas for your own home—the Mick Jagger portrait by Andy Warhol above the fireplace mantle, the vase you sculpted and fired yourself, and the terribly impractical gigantic sculpture in the dining room that just make life better. In other words, do try this at home!

Home of Lagerfeld to Lanvin, Paris extends its style influence well beyond Fashion Week. By the time the renowned furniture trade show Maison et Objet opens its doors, the French fashion capital reveals itself to be a barometer of taste and aesthetics and a magnet for the who’s who of the interior design world. Caroline Sarkozy is one of the insiders who knows precisely how to lend apartments, houses, and lofts that “je ne sais quoi” factor. Sarkozy, who lives and works in Paris, has tremendous expertise and a unique, elegant style that is perfectly at home in luxurious interiors around the world. She grew up in Asia, the Middle East, and the USA, and together with Belgian photographer Jean-François Jaussaud, she whisks us into the personal living spaces of the most beautiful arrondissements of Paris in the second edition of Living in Style Paris. From timeless, understated interiors and ornate, yet refined Art Deco apartments to spectacular dream oases at the city’s edge: captured in opulent pictures and carefully curated, this book provides an intimate look at the work of design greats such as Frédéric Méchiche and Elliott Barnes, and the exclusive hideaways in the metropolis on the Seine that are normally hidden away from prying eyes.

Cool, creative, and not afraid to buck convention, Amsterdam makes the hearts of architecture and design lovers beat a little faster. You’ll find furniture that is refreshingly different, yet still functional; hotels where creative minds feel at home; restaurants that are a joy for both the eye and the palate; and museums and concept stores around every corner. Good design is in the genes of the capital city of the Netherlands, visible almost everywhere you look—in part, thanks to pioneers like Marcel Wanders, Piet Boon, and the Droog Design Collective. So it’s no surprise that MENDO (“the coolest bookstore for visual beauty”) chose to make its home in Amsterdam. We worked with interior design insiders to bring you Living in Style Amsterdam, the latest volume in the series of the same name, and share the dare-to-be-different Dutch design mentality. Selected private apartments, carefully restored 17th-century canal houses, and extravagant high-design hotels and penthouses all opened their doors to us. And what lies behind them? Innovative living spaces and furnishing concepts freed from transitory trends and the talented visionaries who created them. Meet internationally-recognized icons and discover talented newcomers to the Dutch design and architecture scene like Joyce Urbanus, Dax Roll, and James van der Velde. Living in Style Amsterdam is a timelessly beautiful photo book that will provide a wide range of ideas for every design lover and whet your appetite for your next trip to this inspiring city!

There is no other European capital where your home is (literally) as dear a possession as it is in London, a place where your postal code can be a powerful calling card. Anyone who has ever strolled through the city’s various neighborhoods, passed its modern skyscrapers, and entered into one of the many Georgian or Victorian buildings, has probably experienced a great curiosity, if not envy, about residing in this genteel and historical, yet thoroughly modern metropolis. Examples of breathtaking design abound in Living in Style London, as readers will see how London interior designers and architects create residences perfectly tailored to the people who live there, while making optimal use of the available space. Photographer Andreas von Einsiedel and author Karin Graabaek Helledie, both residents of London, escort us on a trip through the imposing residential landscape of this storied British city, a place as diverse and varied as its homeowners. Renovated industry lofts, carefully restored row houses with light-flooded bay windows, or glass oases with spectacular views of the Thames are presented with informative accompanying texts, showing off the most impressively beautiful homes found in the English capital. Born in Denmark, KARIN GRAABAEK HELLEDIE developed her sense for good design and furnishings in the cradle! For more than twenty years, the journalist and book author (Living in Style Scandinavia, teNeues), who lives in London, has been writing about trends, interior design, and travel for international publications like Danish newspaper, Børsen, and interior magazine, RUM. As an homage to her adopted home, she also wrote an intimate city guide called, London My Love!

The perfect gift for all boys who have grown up, but preserved their inner child..   There are only two notable differences between toys for little boys and toys for grown-up boys: the toys get bigger with age—and more expensive. Matchbox cars give way to high-end sports cars, model boats become motorboats and sailing yachts, and the plastic wristwatch turns into a Swiss chronograph with a perpetual calendar and minute repeater. The Toys for Men series has always stayed abreast of this male drive to play; in the latest volume, we present the ultimate wish list, a selection of the most exclusive, most innovative, and most luxurious toys that men with money can buy. Of course, the list includes the classic male fantasies of Lear jets, mega- yachts, and super sports cars—the truly giant and great things that move men in the air, on water, or on land. But it also includes the little gadgets—from headphones and wristwatches to SLR cameras—that make tech-loving men’s hearts beat a little faster. We also include the vices that speak to connoisseurs, like that special bottle of French wine, Scottish whiskey, or Cuban cigars. And last but not least, we include one of the greatest luxuries of all: having a product tailored to you and you alone, bespoke-style. But we’re not just talking about custom- tailored suits. Cars, golf clubs, skis, nearly everything today can be customized to suit your particular tastes. If you’re searching for the ultimate toys for the gentleman who has everything, you’ll hit pay dirt here. Because as philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche already knew, “There is a child hidden in every man: and it wants to play.”

The Equestrian World takes you on a journey into a world where there is always the scent of polished leather and fresh hay in the air. Peek behind the scenes at world-famous competitions—from heart-pounding head-to-head races and hard-hitting polo matches to exquisitely-controlled dressage riding. Horse expert and aficionado, Peter Clotten, takes the reins in this book and whisks us into the many sides of the equestrian sport world. Expressive portraits and informative accompanying text will acquaint you with famous riders and horse enthusiasts as well as manufacturers, saddleries, and designers who make global style statements with their creations—whether it’s mounted on a horse or in the grandstand at Ascot, St. Moritz, and elsewhere. Impressive, graceful, majestic, but also patient—for horse lovers, there is no lovelier feeling than stroking the coat of their faithful companion, saddling up, and riding off into the woods. In earlier times, the horse served primarily as a means of transportation, but now more than ever, the relationship between horse and human is characterized by an intimate bond, and riding is a way of life—not just for professionals, but for passionate hobbyists as well. The Equestrian World is the best way to take a little break from the day-to-day stresses and dive into this fantastic world. Or if you’d like to take the reins yourself, the book also describes luxurious destination resorts, glorious clubs, and rider-friendly hotels where you can get away and get a fresh new perspective on the world.

From majestic glaciers to vast frozen plains as far as the eye can see, ice is just as important to the world’s ecosystems as water, air, and trees. And yet its presence and vital role on Earth is increasingly threatened by the effects of global warming and population growth—the inspiration behind French photographer Laurent Baheux’s latest endeavor, Ice is Black. Through breathtaking black-and-white images, Baheux captures the world’s most beautiful icy landscapes and the fascinating animals that inhabit them. We get close to creatures and landscapes that seem to be taken out of time. Taken in such far-flung lands as Norway, Iceland, and Canada, Baheux’s images present polar bears and their cubs, foxes frolicking in snow, and seals navigating icy waters. While the photographs convey evocative beauty, they also act as a call to action to protect these magnificent icy lands and the creatures that rely on them.
