Описание: 'The V&A is an invaluable resource for costume designers. I was fortunate to be able to look at some of the clothes in the Heather Firbank collection when I was researching for the first series of Downton Abbey - these were fine examples and particularly relevant.' Susannah Buxton, EMMY award-winning costume designer for Downton Abbey (Series 1 & 2) Over 80 years ago, Heather Firbank packed away her extensive collection of fine clothes, bought from London's very best dressmakers and tailors. These treasures lay undiscovered for the next 30 years, until after her death, they were given to the V&A, laying the foundations for the Museum's world-famous collection. Firbank was an enthusiastic shopper and bought her clothes from the world's leading couture houses, including Lucile, Redfern and Mascotte, as well as private dressmakers and department stores. Her collection forms an invaluable record of fashionable Edwardian taste over a period of some 15 years. Beautifully illustrated with new photography of finely crafted evening gowns, tailored suits and glamorous hats, the book also features contemporary photographs and pages from Heather's own albums of fashion cuttings. It vividly maps out the London couture scene of Edwardian Britain, and charts changes in fashion through the tumultuous first decades of the twentieth century. Through the story of Heather's own life, both joyous and troubled, this book celebrates the central role of clothing in creating a single woman's identity.

Описание: London is the royal capital of the world. Nowhere else is steeped in such regal riches. Royalty can be read about in history books, watched in colourful ceremonies and wondered at in lively gossip columns. But most of all, the royal city can be seen and understood in its wonderful, diverse architecture. Using his own unique method of turning photographs into works of art, the highly creative architectural photographer John Cleave continues Editions Didier Millets innovative Sketchbook series by focusing on the citys royal buildings. Here, dating back many centuries, are the glorious palaces of kings and queens, their places of worship and repose, the parks they laid out and the institutions they patronised. Whether in public spaces or in private corners, royalty has stamped its mark right across the city. This isnt just the London of tourists. It is the place Londoners know and love, too, and John Cleaves beautiful pictures evoke Royal Londons finest details, its quiet confidence and its enduring majesty.
Описание: A follow-up to the successful series Rooms to Inspire, this inspirational design guide presents a selection of novel urban interiors by the leading interior designers of our time.
City living evokes cosmopolitan sophistication and artistic expression. This presentation of trend-setting ways to design residences by leading tastemakers such as Muriel Brandolini, Peter Dunham, Jonathan Adler, and Mary McDonald, shows an impressive mix of styles—from eclectic and exotic to neo-traditional.

This inspiring medley ranges from Carolina Irving’s Upper East Side–chic New York apartment with custom molding influenced by Gothic architecture to Robert Couturier’s elegant residence with curved walls, decorated by Paulin Paris. Universal design issues fundamental to living quarters are addressed, including color and comfort, as well as innovative approaches to tight spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms. Sections devoted to bookshelves, home entertaining, and tabletop display, along with a useful resource list, complete this guide to city style. For professionals and novices alike, Rooms to Inspire in the City encourages us to decorate our urban living spaces with panache.

Relax and flip through this book for a real in-depth jaunt through time and place
From the late 1800s until the advent of radio and television, stereoscope viewers were one of the most popular forms of home entertainment. Special cameras make stereoscopic cards, which feature two images set side-by-side. Seen through the viewer, the two photos merge to create a strikingly lifelike 3-D image. You can still experience the thrill of seeing world landmarks up close and personal, with an added dimension. Combine time travel with a trip to London, all from the comfort of your own home.
Here is London in the great era of Queen Victoria and King Edward VII, brought to life in rare, original, three-dimensional photographs. Included are views of such iconic London sights as Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and the famous Beefeaters, nighttime on the Thames, Petticoat Lane, the Tower Bridge, and London Bridge when it was still in London. The book's built-in stereoscopic lenses make viewing the photographs a snap. Extensive captions describe the history of each of the landmarks portrayed in the book.
Experience the depth and realism no ordinary photograph or movie can offer, all in a tidy, bound book, so you can't lose your stereoscope viewer

Описание: Taken in the streets, clubs, basements and bars of London between 1978 and 1987, this new book brings together an incredible series of images from the British photographer Derek Ridgers. People dressing up and going out have always been central to Derek's work from the first days of punk through to the fetish and fringe scenes of present day. Since first picking up a camera in 1971, Ridgers has felt compelled to record the characters that made up the social scenes around him and early on his work attracted both the attention of cultural institutions, such as London's ICA and music and style publications, such as the NME and The Face. These photographs captured across the span of ten years bridge the extremities of youth-culture; from punk through to the birth of acid house. The pictures serve not only as a fascinating document of UK style and culture but as a testament to the spirit of youth, lauding the subjects and their individuality. This book offers us the chance to see the changing faces of fashion, music and culture through individuals and influential social scenes in a time of DIY attitudes.
