William Blake
William Blake
Prophet, poet, painter, engraver - William Blake (1757-1827) was an artist of uniquely powerful imagination and far-reaching creative gifts. His work expresses the spiritual drama of the English national being, integrating poetry and visual art in a sustained work of visionary creativity unparalleled in English art history.

Revealing Blake to be far more than a revolutionary social radical, this classic study reshapes our understanding of the artist's achievement. Kathleen Raine details the enriching effect of mystical, alchemical and gnostic philosophy on Blake's art. She unravels the complex, deeply felt symbolism expressed in his paintings and prints, and describes the powerful impact of his reading of Dante, Milton and the Bible.

Raine's compelling and accessible text guides the reader through the life and thought of this extraordinary artist. Fully alive to the uniqueness of Blake's art - which has `a reality, a coherence, a climate' all its own - she introduces famous work such as Jerusalem, Songs of Innocence and of Experience, The Four Zoas and The Book of Job, relating them to Blake's world view and explaining their prophetic qualities, their fierce energy, and their central place in British Romantic art.

Wonderland
Wonderland
A superb tribute to the New Zealand landscape photography of Whites Aviation. Many of New Zealand's best hand-coloured photos were produced by Whites Aviation between the 1950s and 1970s and changed the way we saw our country. These glorious scenic vistas were a sensation, adorning offices and lounges throughout the land. Now, despite massive changes in society and photography, these images remain sought-after collectors' items, a charming reminder of gentler, quieter times.
The photos in this book were first presented in Peter Alsop's book 'Hand-Coloured New Zealand: The Photographs of Whites Aviation', which was published in large format in 2016 by Potton & Burton, and which was an immediate hit, quickly selling out.
'Wonderland' collects the best of these images in a more condensed edition, presented in the style of a New Zealand pictorial and geographically organised from Northland and Auckland, down to the deep south. The introduction tells the story of Whites Aviation, with profiles of the key personalities behind this company's success.

Yayoi Kusama
Yayoi Kusama
Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (b.1929) is arguably Japan's most famous living artist. Her originality, innovation and powerful desire to communicate have propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades. During this time, Kusama has explored painting, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance and installation, as well as product design.

From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York and was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city. Returning to Japan in her forties, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition she has recently achieved. In her ninth decade her imagination remains richly creative and she continues to extend the range of her practice.

Having accompanied the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist's work to be staged in the UK, this lavishly illustrated book features an introductory essay by Director of Tate Modern, Frances Morris, as well as four other substantial essays by leading international critics. Topics covered included Kusama's time in New York, her career after her return to Japan, her installation works and an exploration of her art from a psychoanalytical point of view."
