If you want to experience Italy’s passion for fast, elegant cars, there is no more thrilling place than the Mille Miglia. With hundreds of thousands of spectators cheering drivers on, the long-distance race from Brescia to Rome and back was held from 1927 to 1957. Racers like Tazio Nuvolari, Rudolf Caracciola, and Stirling Moss—along with the Mille Miglia itself—became legends. The Mille Miglia was revived in 1977 and once again cheering fans line the roads. This exclusive book shows the spectacular 2014 race, which was photographed by René Staud and his team, and offers insights into the exciting history of this renowned competition. The result is an enthralling documentation of this unique event and its fascinating cars, picturesque landscapes, and celebrity drivers like Jay Leno and Adrien Brody.

This may sound a little crazy, but take a moment to close your eyes while you’re browsing through this book. You’re sure to taste a hint of fine red wine spreading across your tongue. The Grand Châteaux of Bordeaux is your complete guide to the most famous wine-growing region in the world. Discover outstanding vineyards and their wines in spectacular photos: everything from Margaux and Mouton Rothschild to Gruaud-Larose and Latour. Take an exciting look behind the walls of the châteaux where these storied vintages are born. See Bordelais vintners and cellar masters at work in Saint-Émilion or Pomerol. And learn about the history of the vineyard estates and their architec­tural heritage, as well as grape varieties, wine storage, and soil characteristics, because, as Goethe famously said, “Life is too short to drink bad wine.” The informative texts round out the book like the silky finish of a Grand Cru.

What do the Gallagher brothers of Oasis, Franz Beckenbauer, Albert Camus, Diego Maradona, Elton John, and David Beckham all have in common? They all cross the borders from football to pop culture. They are football-obsessed pop musicians, singing footballers, Nobel Prize in Literature winners who play football, footballers who write books, pop stars who buy football clubs, or footballers who become pop stars (and want to buy a football club). They breathe life into the phrase “football culture” while simultaneously ensuring that football garners even greater mass appeal. Football is much more than “11 people, 1 goal.” It’s a beloved big-screen theme—just think of Stephen Frears’ The Van or Victory with Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone, and Pelé. It is the subject of hundreds of books and immortalized in hundreds of songs, so it’s only logical that we devote a volume from our new The Stylish Life series to football: Here’s to the fashion whims of the footballers on and off the pitch, the Cristiano Ronaldo-ization of football, ’rock-n-roll, and the glamorous life.

Zerofriends co-founder Alex Pardee returns with a collection of some of the most horrifying and iconic characters of film, video games and comics with Doppelgangers. The monograph displays a parade of serial killers, demons, aliens and psychopaths, from early film monsters in melancholy black and white to modern horrors captured in full bloody colour. The freaks of cult classics rub shoulders with the slick killers of modern blockbusters, all captured with Pardee’s signature deranged style and a sense of childlike delight. Nostalgia and terror mix with the blood, guts and slime that drip from the collection’s pages, but above all, Pardee’s tongue-in-cheek humour shines through, with incompetent space villains and men with scissors for hands rubbing shoulders with mutating aliens, erudite cannibals, and a healthy assortment of axe murderers, demons, evil clowns and murderous tomatoes. In Doppelgangers, Pardee invites us to get cozy with the evil twins and dark doubles of pop culture.
