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.

Pierre Winther is a world-renowned conceptualist, raconteur, image-maker, and visionary. Born in Copenhagen and today based in Berlin, Winther has been pushing the boundaries of photography and film since 1985. With his mind deeply rooted in cinema, he manages to tell entire stories in single moments with his complex imagery. Nothing Beats Reality is a carefully curated selection of Winther’s prolific oeuvre spanning a quarter of a century. It contains his revolutionary editorials, campaigns, and high-concept visuals, such as Winther’s most iconic image of a man riding a 17-foot tiger shark. This daring image was achieved on a mammoth 1992 shoot in the Great Barrier Reef and produced without digital manipulation. Shark Riding appears on the cover of this book and inspired its title, Nothing Beats Reality. To connect his visual worlds as a photographer and film director, Winther strikes a new interactive path in this volume by “encoding” his imagery. In other words, “The film starts where the photograph ends.”

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.

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.
