Ansel Adams: Landscapes of the American West - Lauris Morgan-Griffiths

Quercus Publishing (MacLehose Press) / —
Ansel Adams’ legendary photographs inspire an appreciation for natural beauty and conservation that has communicated down the generations. His ambition was not simply to record the landscape, but to capture his emotional and spiritual response to the wild areas that he loved so deeply. The results are spectacular: an emotional charge and passion shine through the prints with an intensity that is as powerful today as it was over sixty years ago.In 1941, Ansel Adams was commissioned by the United States Interior Department to take photographs of the National Parks to be printed as murals for the walls of the new Interior Department building. This couldn’t have been closer to his heart: it combined a commercial assignment with his personal, creative work he referred to as within. The within was the work that encapsulated his emotional reaction to the landscape — when he, the camera and the landscape were at one. Unfortunately, the project was curtailed with the outbreak of World War II and the mural was never produced.The majority of pictures in this book are from the National Parks Mural Project, but also include work from other projects. The Kings Canyon photographs, taken in 1936, were successfully used to lobby for Kings Canyon to be designated a National Park. There is an exuberant photograph of an apple tree in snow taken at Yosemite, as well as the images taken for a documentary project during the war when Japanese Americans were interned at the Manzanar Relocation Centre.

Salvador Dali - Rachel Barnes

Quercus Publishing (MacLehose Press) / —
Salvador Dali was one of the most famous artists of the 20th century — and also one of its greatest eccentrics. Renowned for his striking and provocative work, as well as his unconventional behaviour, he attracted admiration and controversy in equal measure. This stunning volume showcases more than 90 of Dali’s most famous works in magnificent giant size. Arranged chronologically to reflect Dali’s artistic development from ambitious young painter to reclusive artist, the images include the sensational Persistence of Memory; the finely detailed Metamorphosis of Narcissus; and his later works, such as the arresting image of Christ of St John of the Cross and The Hallucinogenic Toreador. Here too are numerous depictions of his muse and wife, Gala; and his most well-known sculptures, including Lobster Telephone and Retrospective Bust of a Woman; as well as evocative black-and-white photographs of the artist throughout his life. Accompanying the images is art historian Rachel Barnes’s lively and entertaining account of Dali’s life and artistic style and techniques, shedding light on the artist’s influences and inspirations. Ideal for Dali enthusiasts and art lovers, these spectacular giant-size reproductions and insightful commentary reveal the extraordinary life and works of this gifted, controversial and inimitable artist.

Breakout: A Parker Novel - Richard Stark

Quercus Publishing (MacLehose Press) / —
In a hulking drab warehouse in a hulking drab city in the center of an empty state, Parker is caught moving pharmaceuticals into a waiting truck. Led into a joint called Stoneveldt — from which no one has ever escaped — Parker has to find a way out, before his whole violent past catches up with him. And getting out of Stoneveldt means taking on the only partners he can find, including one who is already planning his next job. For Parker and his fellow jail breakers, freedom is just another word for committing their next felony. They pull off the perfect jailbreak and then start the perfect heist. But things go south in a hurry — leaving three men dead and Parker and his fellow escape artists scratching, clawing, and running for their lives. Suddenly, the big, drab city in the big, empty Midwestern state has become a prison. A cast of cops, busybodies, snitches, and weak links have turned into jailers. And for Parker, the ultimate jailbreak is about to begin.

Betrayals: A Strange Angels Novel - Lili St. Crow

Quercus Publishing (MacLehose Press) / —
The second novel in the Strange Angels series picks up with Dru neatly tucked away in a Schola that’s more like a prison than a secret training facility. Except for one tiny detail… she’s the only girl in the place and is totally surrounded by tons of cute boys. But a traitor in the Order wants Dru dead and she can’t trust anyone except for Graves. Too bad he’s being kept busy with a new crew of wulfen teens and doesn’t have time for her. As she learns the truth about who she can and can’t trust, Dru’s only hope may be to save herself — although the one gift that makes her special is draining away, and she doesn’t know how to get it back. Will Dru survive long enough to find out who is really after her? Or is she destined for the same fate as her murdered parents? Lili’s characters come alive on the page in a way that’s visually stunning and she creates the same terrific pace, danger and teen romance as in Strange Angels.
