As sweeping in magnitude as its name implies, 5000 Years of Chinese Art is an amazingly comprehensive guide to Chinese art from prehistory (ca 2 million) to the end of the Qing Dynasty in 1912. This gorgeous volume, which comes in an elegantly crafted red and gold folding case, looks at highlighted pieces not just as static objects but as artifacts of their time, tied to the historical and political context of the period they were created in. Chapters arranged in chronological order and an index presented as a timeline allow readers to trace the progression of signature forms of Chinese art through the ages, as simple jade talismans evolve into carved jade bonsai, elegant bronze work leads to elaborate vessels crafted from a variety of precious metals, and early writings carved on “oracle bones” give way to scrollwork of stunning beauty and philosophical value. From furniture to drinking vessels, simple glazed ceramics to the terra cotta warriors, 5000 Years of Chinese Art is a fully engaging experience for anyone with an appreciation of art, history, or Chinese culture.

Type Player 3 displays the best of types that demonstrate how designers don’t just design type, but turn it into a subject of play with letters that go beyond the page to capture the unique needs and aesthetic preferences of designers and brands. The words and letters within exist as physical objects that embody the messages they spell out in their very design — items of clothing demonstrate exactly what it means to be “colorful,” long nights working on deadlines are represented in buzzing neon, and delicate curls of smoke show how beautiful a reminder in text can be. Type Player 3 contains creative examples collected worldwide, including editorial work, illustration, fashion, hand-made objects and environmental subjects, with 240 pages of lettering created from flowers, raindrops, food, and even the human body itself. The sequel to the best-selling Type Player 2, this title is essential for anyone looking for provocative new ways to get their message across.

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.

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.

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.
