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.
Beatles A To Z
Anyone who talks trash on The Beatles is just looking for a fight. It’s as simple as that. There’s a reason they’re empirically and spiritually the most successful band of all time: they did it all, and in a shockingly short timeframe. The Beatles A to Z explores the kaleidoscopic world of the biggest band ever, through a funky alphabetized factoid format. We follow the four boys’ early days playing all-nighters in Hamburg and Liverpool, through their mop-top era and the height of the British Invasion, to experimentation (musical and otherwise) in India. The Beatles remain unrivalled in their effect on music and pop culture. This book revels in their cultural impact, and peeks into the lives of John, Paul, George and Ringo, the iconic albums, the hit singles and the epidemic of Beatlemania. This book looks at the life, art, collaborations, films and friendships and fun surrounding the greatest band of all time – all in a brilliantly illustrated A to Z format.

Urban Pioneer: Interiors Inspired By Industrial Design
The conversion of such buildings into residential spaces first emerged in the 1960s and ‘70s. A decline in manufacturing in city centres meant that many warehouses and factories became vacant, attracting the first wave of urban pioneers—artists and creatives seeking cheap rents and large interiors to use as studio spaces. Since then, industrial areas in many cities have become sought-after residential districts and urban regeneration has gone from strength to strength. Nowadays the trend shows no sign of waning, with a second generation of urban pioneers cleverly converting former lofts, warehouses, schools, factories, offices, and retail spaces into highly desirable homes full of personality and soul.
The Inspired Home: Nest of Creatives
Through the romantic and artful photographs of Ditte Isager, authors Kim Ficaro and Todd Nickey guide the reader through the homes of fifteen dynamically creative individuals, including: Art Director Doug Lloyd's Hamptons beach house, musician Moby's Los Angeles home, and Mads and Cecile Norgaard's Copenhagen boathouse. Organized by theme, chapters are broken down to present different lifestyles and aesthetics: homes inspired by light and love; by darkness and mystery; by the quiet and still; or by natural landscapes or the seaside.
Both youthful and sophisticated as well as romantic and upscale, the living spaces within The Inspired Home leave the reader thoroughly inspired to embrace their own inner creative voice to express their style in their own interiors.
Ten years ago, the Novogratzes bought a modest house in disrepair in Trancoso, Brazil, long before the rest of the world had discovered the peaceful beach outpost. This gorgeous book chronicles the transformation of the unremarkable cottage into a beloved family retreat in the glorious tropical environment of coastal Brazil that perfectly fits their lifestyle, where outside living is as important as interior.

Liquid Architecture by Tony Owen & Partners
Tony Owen & Partners believes that there is a place for an architecture that is exciting and unique, but that is based on sound commercial principles and realizes our clients’ needs; an architecture which is driven by contemporary ideas and which is combined with a proactive and inclusive approach to consultation with authorities. Tony Owen Partners believes in a “realizable architecture” that challenges the norm. Tony Owen Partners' focus is on gaining successful approvals on prominent residential and commercial developments. This involves the fusion of commercial interest with stylistic and community issues and through extensive consultation with state and local authorities. The city is a laboratory for living. What makes the Urban Realm so interesting is that it is the intersection between the human, environmental, commercial and cultural needs.
