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.

This Is Not a Photo Opportunity is a street-level, full-color showcase of some of Banksy’s most innovative pieces ever. Banksy, Britain’s now-legendary “guerilla” street artist, has painted the walls, streets, and bridges of towns and cities throughout the world. Once viewed as vandalism, Banksy’s work is now venerated, collected, and preserved. Over the course of a decade, Martin Bull has documented dozens of the most important and impressive works by the legendary political artist, most of which are no longer in existence.

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.

Ton-up Lancs is a welcome reassessment of a study which first appeared under the 'Claims to Fame' series. Since that publication years ago, information and photographs continued to be sent to and researched and collected by the author, so much so that a complete revision was necessary, with a new 100-sortie aircraft added to the list, and with many more photographs of the aircraft and men who flew in these very special Avro Lancs. Each aircraft's history is recorded, supported by stories from aircrew that flew them, along with what happened to them once - or if - they survived. The most famous is 'Queenie' (W5868), the only one still in existence and which can be seen in the Bomber Command Hall at the RAF Museum, Hendon. She, as with some others, has some controversial accounting regarding the actual number of operations flown, which the book covers in full. Such controversies can also be explained by the detailed listing of each raid flown by each pilot and crew during 1942-1945, on sorties all over Hitler's Third Reich, Northern Italy, during support missions before and after D-Day, as well as in attacking V1 rocket launcher sites in Northern France. There are also first-hand accounts of the experience of flying on ops, supported by over 200 photographs reproduced throughout the book, many from personal albums which have not been published before.

Some of the earliest examples of figurative art in existence are representations of animals. Whether wild predator or prey, or domesticated for food or companionship, animals have played an important role throughout human history. It is no surprise, then, that their very forms can be imbued with so much meaning. Animal Kingdom, the first volume in the new series Untamed Graphics, explores the wide variety of graphic depictions of animals in contemporary design. From branding and packaging, to product design and installation art, the examples showcase the diversity as well as universality of their appeal. Some are gestural or abstract designs that merely hint at their iconic features, while others are highly stylized, reflecting the voice of the artist, or the needs of the market or client. From animalistic typography to boutique window displays, insect identification apps to larger than life sculptures of stalking tigers, the range of scale is staggering, with as many variations as there are species on earth.
