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: The last 25 years or so have witnessed redevelopment in the City of London on an unprecedented scale, following the deregulation of the financial markets, the so-called ‘Big Bang’, in the mid-1980s. As the City has earned its place as a true global financial centre, the majority of its office space has been rebuilt, and developers have taken a more adventurous approach, commissioning such leading British and international architects as Norman Foster, Rem Koolhaas, Jean Nouvel and Richard Rogers. New City is the first book to examine in depth the creation of one of the world’s largest collections of cutting-edge architecture – not just the prestigious office blocks that have changed the skyline, but also cultural institutions, retail sites and public spaces. Following an introduction that explores the context for the rebuilding of the City, the main part of the book is divided into 12 concise walk-throughs of the major areas. Authoritatively written by a former urban planner and with all-new photography throughout, this is an indispensable architectural guide for professionals and the public alike.
