A passionate tribute to vinyl, spotlighting rock’s most influential records — from The Beatles’ 1963 debut Please Please Me, through the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind the Bollocks (1977) — 101 Essential Rock Records celebrates the “Golden Age.” A thoughtful essay on each album accompanies the original vinyl cover artwork, with rare variations from around the world. Also included are provocative interviews with musicians discussing the albums and artists who changed their lives. David Bowie speaks eloquently about the Velvet Underground’s influence, noting his band, Buzz, performed “I’m Waiting For The Man” at their last gig, and that “it was the first time a Velvet song had been covered by anyone, anywhere in the world. Lucky me.” Susanne Vega, Peter Buck (REM), Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Nels Cline (Wilco), Devendra Banhart, Robyn Hitchcock and more contribute original texts. Pictorial explorations of Jimi Hendrix’s personal record collection, and a survey of censored album covers from throughout the rock era are also featured. The sales of vinyl LPs have been growing rapidly while other physical mediums continue to wither, a trend driven in no small part by classic re-issues and the advent of record store day in 2008. 101 Essential is the perfect accompaniment and guide to digging in the bins for that quintessential vinyl experience.

Tracking Captain Thomas

The continuing myth that Canterbury was born in December 1850 with the arrival of the First Four Ships has to be dispelled. Canterbury did not, like the legendary Athena, spring 'fully-armed from the head of Zeus' (in this case, John Robert Godley) as succeeding generations after 1851 have been led to believe. So much of the initial work was carried out by the Canterbury Association Chief Surveyor Captain Thomas; so much of this effort, intentionally or unintentionally, was obscured by the settlers of the 1850s, Thomas deserves recognition as a Canterbury founder.

From converted factories and chapels to cabins built from salvaged wood, this collection of innovative, beautiful, and sustainable dwellings showcases a worldwide trend for upcycling in home design. Antonia Edwards’ first book, Upcyclist, explored how artists and designers around the globe transform castoff materials into elegant domestic furnishings. Now, she turns her sights to the homes themselves in this breathtaking selection of unique buildings and interiors. Divided into three sections—Reclaimed, Revived, and Reimagined—Renovate Innovate offers vibrant photographs and fascinating descriptions of its subjects. Projects in the Reclaimed chapter include environmentalist Peter Bahouth’s highly coveted three-unit tree house nestled in the Atlanta woods and the Love Art Studio in Phuket, Thailand, which is constructed entirely from bits of driftwood. The Revived section features a traditional Slovenian barn, rescued from disrepair and converted into a light-filled holiday home with beautiful Alpine views, and a Milanese apartment furnished with striking vintage finds. Reimagined takes readers from Melbourne to Madrid, Tribeca to the English countryside, showcasing a 7,500 square-foot reservoir converted into a trendy modern residence and a former cement factory that has found new life as architect Ricardo Bofill’s famed studio and living space. This international sampling of stunning new buildings and renovations will inspire readers, designers, architects, and dreamers alike to reimagine lived in spaces.
