Women have long realized that cool shoes do not only complement the outfit, they are the whole point. From Cinderella to Carrie, we have all fallen head over heels for “the right pair”—and to hell with cost or comfort! This book explores the outer realms of avant-garde shoe design. Unfettered by commercialism, these pioneering designers give full rein to their artistic visions. These zany pieces contain an array of extraordinary forms and materials. With influences ranging from Las Vegas pizzazz and arcane tribal relics to contemporary architecture, it may be difficult to distinguish between fun footwear and conceptual sculpture.

“One must first imagine a car,” stated Enzo Ferrari. Nobody creates pictures worthy of the Commendatore’s imagination quite like Günther Raupp. Not just a random flood of images, this internationally renowned automotive photographer’s artworks capture the seductive essence of these status symbols from Maranello—maintaining the legendary Ferrari luster.

Recently, a major exhibition in the World Cultural Heritage Site of the Völklingen Ironworks was dedicated to his photographs, their almost surreal effects and striking use of backlighting. In 2008 teNeues published Raupp’s successful Ferrari. 25 Years of Calendar Images. With The Ferrari Book Günther Raupp adds an exciting, exclusive collector’s item to our line of high quality car books.

Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was among the foremost ukiyo-e artists of his generation, and his Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji ranks among the best-known series of Japanese woodblock prints. This edition presents a full-color reprint of Hokusai's enduring masterpiece, plus his black-and-white series, One Hundred Views of Mt. Fuji.
Hokusai created thousands of woodcut prints based on the traditions, legends, and lives of his countrymen. The artist blended Western perspective with traditional Eastern techniques to reinvent the art of the Japanese print. His timeless images achieved their greatest popularity in the West and influenced generations of artists, most notably Van Gogh, Monet, and Degas. Published in the 1830s, The Great Wave is Hokusai's most familiar vision of Mt. Fuji. This compilation, which depicts the sacred mountain from many angles and in all seasons, is a must for all lovers of Japanese art and woodblock prints of the floating world.

Barry Cleavin has played a significant role within the New Zealand arts scene since the 1960s. In his prints he maintains a consistently individual approach, with a style that is immediately recognisable yet ranges from lightly humorous parody through to caustic social comment. In Cleavin's world nothing is what it seems: Lateral Inversions invites viewers to explore other ways of seeing and understanding, prompting a wider consideration of our fragile and often absurd existence.
Lavishly illustrated with over 120 colour plates, Lateral Inversions draws from Cleavin's vast output to present a major representative survey of his prints and drawings from 1966 through until 2012. Over more than five decades Cleavin has developed thematic groupings, created visual echoes and provided contemporary twists on age-old traditions. Selected works are presented within the context of Cleavin's wider oeuvre, but they are also placed within their social and historical background, demonstrating the range of Cleavin's talent and providing significant new insights into his work and thematic concerns.

The place of tattoos in the cultural milieu of China and Japan today parallels their standing in society in the West in many ways; associations with gangs, outlaws and "degenerate" subcultures are commonly held perceptions. It is, however, the differences which fascinate and illuminate.

Oriental Tattoo Art explores how traditions going back thousands of years have directly informed the development of the prevailing aesthetics in the East. Twenty contemporary artists from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan talk about their understanding of and practice within the tattoo realm and their finished masterpieces feature prominently.



Tattooed "sleeves" and "suits" are a mainstay as are traditional motifs, including dragons, chrysanthemum flowers, koi, and dramatic landscapes and natural scenes. Historically, tribal, religious and sacrificial motivations informed the earliest tattoos in the Orient, but over time these influences have developed into a fascinating modern discipline. The aesthetic is often copied in the West, but seldom with the depth of tradition or understanding informing the work found in these pages.

To select the color photographs for this vast project that have never been published in a book before, Elliott Erwitt sifted through his ample archive of nearly half a million 35mm slides. Then he began the mammoth task of whittling it down to this epic collection of roughly 450 pages. For most of these images, the color managed to stay miraculously preserved and every evocative detail is as crisp as the date of its creation. Whether world leaders or sassy showgirls, the subjects reflect Erwitt’s own wry and eclectic sensibility. To say the juxtapositions are intriguing would be an understatement. From marketplaces to military camps, Vegas to Venice, there’s a rich mixture of public pageantry and carefully observed private interactions.
