Diana Style Icon A Celebration of the fashion
Diana Style Icon A Celebration of the fashion
With famous fans such as Rihanna still referring to Lady Di as one of her style icons, and Hailey Bieber paying homage to her athleisure looks, it's clear that Princess Diana is one of the most influential style icons of the 20th century. Throughout the 80s and 90s she was known as a loving mother, philanthropist, 'Princess of the People' and daring and bold fashionista. In The Legend of Di Dan Jones celebrates the style evolution of Lady Diana Spencer - from the innocent see-through skirt faux-pas, to the off-the-rack blue David Sassoon suit and pussy bow ensemble worn on her engagement to Prince Charles, the 25-foot train on her Elizabeth and David Emmanuel wedding dress, the 1996 black Christina Stambolian 'revenge dress', bike pants with Virgin Atlantic sweatshirt going-home-from-the-gym look, and more.

Dan will chart how Di's style evolved from the twee Laura Ashley-loving 19-year-old when she first joined the monarchy in 1981, to a bold and confident fashion influencer in the 90s. Diana had the the knack of following Royal Etiquette yet making up her own fashion rules, influencing millions of women across the globe along the way. From her frilly pussy bow blouses, to one-shoulder spangly dresses, statement chokers, colourful suits and jeans with blazer ensembles, this is a collection of her best-loved fashion moments - from the red carpet to heading home from the gym and walking through minefields.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, and featuring over 50 of Diana's most iconic looks, as well as profiles of her go-to designers, this is a keepsake for die-hard Di fans and fashion-lovers alike.

Dior Great Lives in Graphic Form
Dior Great Lives in Graphic Form
The Biographic series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world's greatest thinkers and creatives. It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey all of them in vivid snapshots. Many people know that Christian Dior (1905-1957) was a French fashion designer, the founder of the world famous fashion house that carries his name. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he once owned a small art gallery selling work by artists including Pablo Picasso; that he employed a young Yves Saint Laurent as his assistant; that he included a garment in each of his shows named after his home town of Granville; and that he had a superstitious belief in the number 8, with the house of Dior being housed over 8 workshops in an 8-storey building in the 8th district of Paris. Biographic: Dior presents a visual catwalk through his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the genius behind the garments.

Door JAdore A Celebration of the Worlds Most Beautiful Doors
Door JAdore A Celebration of the Worlds Most Beautiful Doors
Doors are a barrier between reality and imagination, and the portal between private and public. And therein lies their sense of mystery: without opening them we will never know what or who lies behind them. Our curious nature leads us to wonder what is beyond, and we only have what we see in front of us to go by, but take a closer look and you will discover that every door tells its own story. Whether it's the particular shade of paint, the texture of the finish, an extravagant knocker, the plant that scrambles around the frame or an elegantly turned handle, every door reveals the secret of its past, its present, its culture and the person who lives behind it.

This book showcases a variety of beautiful doors chosen for their wide-ranging appeal and celebrates the everyday beauty of something we take for granted - doors.

Down to Earth
Down to Earth
An elevated yet accessible follow-up to Lauren Liess's Habitat, showcasing her signature easy-living lifestyle




Down to Earth picks up right where Lauren Liess's critically acclaimed Habitat
left off. While Habitat walked readers through the decorating process
step-by-step, Liess's latest title takes a step beyond the basics and
invites readers to incorporate the main components of her familiar
design aesthetic: nature, easy living, and approachability. With
evocative photos and substantive design advice, Down to Earth focuses on creating a lifestyle that inspires creativity and functionality.



Throughout the book, Liess shows readers how to incorporate six guiding
principles in six unique homes: a new farmhouse, a classic American
historical home, a lakeside contemporary house, a modern villa, a turn-
of-the-century American Foursquare, and a cedar and glass house on a
bluff. While each home has a different architectural style, fingerprints
of Liess's down-to-earth style are evident throughout.
