1% Privilege in a Time of Global Inequality
1% Privilege in a Time of Global Inequality
To be able to simply drift in the infinity pool on the roof terrace of the fifty-seven-floor Marina Bay Sands Hotel, while in the background you can enjoy the urban soundscape of Singapore's imposing sea of high-rises. Or to be personally welcomed to a private champagne party after an extended hot-air balloon ride over the Kenyan wilderness. The extravagant pleasures of the wealthiest one percent of the earth's population represent an extreme contrast to those of the remaining ninety-nine. Describing the gaping disparities in images is a challenge that has been taken up by Nina Berman, Peter Bialobrzeski, Guillaume Bonn, Mikhael Subotzky, and many others photographers. The volume assembles their works for the purpose of lending visual evidence to the blatant discrepancy between people's living conditions, which can be as fascinating as it is shocking.

Marion Bataille is one of the world's greatest pop-up designers and the creator of the best-selling "ABC3D", which sold more than 200,000 copies around the world. In "10", she plays with the shape of numbers, exploring the pleasure of seeing one number mutate into another as we count from one to ten and back again. "10" relates to the way we count numbers on our fingers and to the apparent symmetry of our bodies. If you count from one to ten on your fingers in one direction and then the other, each finger will have two numbers associated with it. For instance if you count to finger number three from left to right, that finger will be finger number eight when counting from right to left. In Marion Bataille's book, the number three effortlessly shifts to the number eight as you turn the page. The formal perfection and playful intelligence of "10" will enchant readers of all ages.

100 days That Mapped a Nation
100 days That Mapped a Nation
October 2019 marks the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook's first landfall in New Zealand. One Hundred Days that Mapped a Nation marks this historic occasion by looking at Cook's intrepid journeys to New Zealand and the Pacific that were unprecedented for the time and had such far-reaching consequences.
His initial voyage on the Endeavour was focused on observing the transit of Venus to gather information to help with nautical navigation and as a result he had on board astronomer Charles Green, naturalists Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander and later artist William Hodges. This has left a legacy of first-hand accounts and artworks that bring alive the impressions of Cook and his crew, and what they experienced in their early encounters with the inhabitants and their reactions to the exotic landscape.

Ships logs, journal entries, maps and illustrations help to build a vivid portrait of the places and people encountered by Cook, recording his impressions and those of some of the talented men who accompanied him. It also looks at the challenges of the voyages, from preventing scurvy to finding adequate provisions. Highly illustrated with a lively but authoritative text by Graeme Lay, this book is the definitive celebration of a remarkable achievement. In the 100 days Captain Cook spent here on three separate voyages he managed to charter the coastline of New Zealand, literally putting the country on the map.

The 100 letters collected in this beautifully illustrated book demonstrate the power of the written word to inspire, astonish and entertain.

Entries include: A resume from Leonardo da Vinci, with barely a mention of his artistic talents; Henry VIII's love letters to Anne Boleyn, which eventually led to the dissolution of the monasteries; Beatrix Potter's correspondence with a friend's son that introduced the character of Peter Rabbit; SOS telegrams from the Titanic; Abraham Lincoln's letter that contradicted his fight against slavery; a legal letter marking the end of the Beatles; Emile Zola's open letter ("J'accuse!"); the scrawled note that brought about Oscar Wilde's downfall; as well as famous last words from Virginia Woolf to Kurt Kobain.
