The Junkers 87 Stuka was an iconic weapon of World War Two and an aircraft name that was, and still is, instantly recognised worldwide. Its roles in Poland and the Battles of France and the Low Countries are almost legendary, but in the UK its import during the Battle of Britain is one that has never been covered in any specific detail. Here, Andy Saunders takes a critical look at every operation by Ju87s against British targets in 1940 – including those on land and at sea. Each raid is charted, covering all aspects of the attacks including participants, defending RAF fighters and those on the receiving end. Myth and reality and truth and legend are all examined and analysed in this highly illustrated new book, which adds to our knowledge of one of the most significant periods in the whole of British history.

Consummate wiseguy, documentarian of working people, and “vaguely anonymous human” Dont Fret is one of Chicago’s most visible street artists, best known for his wheat-pasted characters and snarky musings that populate city streets worldwide. Simultaneously sardonic, biting, and fond, the bluntness of his figures and texts—often “belonging” to the neighborhood they inhabit—skewers the obvious and reflects the normalized-until-numbed issues of the city back at the passerby experiencing them firsthand. While his work has stretched from São Paulo to Helsinki, he remains a true Wicker Park native, digging into the character(s) of Chicago—the stew of down-and-out and up-and-up, the meatpackers, the artists, the street-wise, and the stupid. The first comprehensive survey of Dont Fret’s work/life thus far, this monograph showcases a decade of his street and gallery work and features memories and anecdotes from fellow artists and friends, as well as a foreword by writer and Brooklyn Street Art co-founder Steven P. Harrington.

Based on a series of lectures developed by noted furniture designer Richard Schultz, this brief, striking book lays out his design manifesto both challenging and adding to Louis Sullivan's credo ""form follows function."" From African stools carved from a single log to advanced techniques of laminating wood; from simple twisted wire chairs to complex wire furniture bending in three axes; and from basic stonework to iconic post-and-beam structures, the art of design evolves along with the available materials and techniques. Combining Zen wisdom, examples of classic furniture, and a lifetime of experience as a designer, Schultz explores how technology both limits and fosters innovative design. It is the author's hope that this book will encourage students, designers, and others to think about new materials and techniques so that they, too, will create iconic designs.
