There are as many reasons to love Paris as there are people who love it. Everyone Loves Paris includes tributes from over 50 illustrators from around the world. From grand landmarks—such as the Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Coeur Basilica, and the Louvre Pyramid—to the small pleasures of daily life, each image expresses the joys of this marvelous city through the perspective of each artist’s brush. Quaint cobblestone streets wind through Montmartre; the smells of croissants and café crème waft from a Parisian café; and maps abound with every arrondissement’s must-see sites. Even if you don’t consider yourself an artist, Paris makes you appreciate the art of living. Everyone Loves Paris is a delightful meander that will inspire you to view the City of Light from a new angle and in a multitude of styles.

What happens to buildings when they are no longer needed or have outlasted their original purpose? They are either lovingly restored so they can be used for something else—or they fall into ruin, where they remain as silent witnesses of a bygone era. French photographer Aurélien Villette has made it his mission to trace these dilapidated buildings—some completely forgotten by history—and capture their incomparable beauty in wondrous colour photographs. Whether his subject is a Christian chapel, an erstwhile theatre, or the events centre in a former Communist country, Villette brings the spirit and pathos the place once embodied back to life. At the same time, the ruins in his evocative photographs are stylized to create cultural heirlooms of the various periods and countries where they are located. The technically perfect photography allows the viewer to infer various architectural influences of earlier times, making this volume a very special historical and cultural documentation. Allow yourself to be transported by the breathtaking beauty of these images and dive into a former era where time stands still.

ART ARKTIS explores the fragility and variety of a majestic, untouched world through a collection of fine-art photography. Dietmar Baum and Tini Papamichalis embarked on a three-week expedition, capturing landscapes otherwise guarded from the sights of mankind by ice with the help of Hasselblad’s latest camera technology. Using their trained eyes and artistic points of view, the two have created seemingly surreal images—as if a scene from another planet was painted. The goal of this Antarctic excursion in February 2014 was to give insight into this fragile and pristine land, transporting the viewer to these solitary vistas. The stunning array of images of Antarctica evokes a lasting impression—to undoubtedly preserve this region because of its indisputable role in our planet’s life. • The first ART ARKTIS exhibition took place on May 22, 2014, in Hamburg, Germany—and now the images are available in a large-format coffee-table book • Explore the wonders of Antarctica

Boy meets girl: This eternal and inexhaustible theme is the topic of the Zeiss Art Calendar. Zeiss, the leading manufacturer of optical systems, invites the very best photographers to take part each year. From Wim Wenders in 2009 to Douglas Kirkland in 2015, the photos are as complex and multifaceted as male-female relationships themselves; the lines between romance, drama, and comedy quickly blur. The people in front of the camera are also tops in their fields—actors like Michael J. Fox or Alec Baldwin meet super models like Amber Valletta or Toni Garrn. They all make this book a diverse collection of imaginative stories told through pictures. Interviews with the participants further enrich the book with a behind-the-scenes look at the project.

With his new title, Flash, Lenny Kravitz makes his mark in a new arena of the creative arts. During his childhood, Kravitz was enthralled by cameras, playing with them like toys instead of taking photographs. In recent years photographer friends taught him the fundamentals of photography by using a Leica. Intrigued by the possibilities, Kravitz began creating his own works, featuring close attention to the nuances and effects created by light. As he himself had been endlessly photographed by photographers, paparazzi, and fans—his perspective on aesthetics was decidedly unique. In Flash, he captures the essence of what it’s like to be a rock star who’s constantly in the public eye. The result: an intense exploration of the photographer and his subject. • This thrilling collection documents Kravitz’s world tours, offering a rare record of the nomadic musical life • Flash signals an exciting new chapter in the annals of rock photography • A must-have for fans of Lenny Kravitz and all those fascinated by the world of contemporary celebrity

There’s been a revolution in the family; it’s now all about the kids. Our homes are overrun with their toys and our diaries packed with their schedule of social and educational activities. We’ve lost control and we don’t know how to redress the balance. Thankfully, we’ve moved on from the days of children being forced to sit at the dinner table until they’ve eaten every scrap of overcooked cabbage, but we’re now plagued with the worry of ending up with ‘that child’ – the one running amok in shops and classrooms. This book combines newer and traditional childrearing methods and applies a common sense ‘best of both worlds’ approach – one that works in the modern world for modern families. In this manifesto of new old-fashioned parenting there’s no pandering, no spoiling, and definitely no dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets at dinner time.
