Victoria Alexander: Home

Pale pink pervades the home of Victoria Alexander:  it colors plates and cups, it tinges the walls and the frames of the woodblock prints that hang on the ancient walls, it comes through the windows, a distillation of the very colors found in Australian sunsets.

Writer, passionate cook, refined photographer, Victoria Alexander together with Love Books, a small but intriguing publishing house in Sidney, gives us a book steeped in pink, starting with the color of the cover.  After a cup of tea sipped in her company, she leads us through Home: a fresh account of what she terms an anthropological pilgrimage through the home, and through houses:  from the tribal tents of Kenya through the colorful constructions of Ethiopia, by way of the blossoms put out to dry in a Japanese house and the slatted balconies of old Stockholm.

Dedicated to those who cheerfully color outside the lines, writes Victoria in the epigraph to this book, wrapped in a coarse cloth with a debossed title, and printed on uncoated paper of a delicate pink shade.  The edge of the pages, printed digitally, repeat the title along with the adjective “sweet.”

Home! Home!
Sweet, sweet home!
There’s no place like home
There’s no place like home!

So goes the popular song.  And with that ditty in mind, the author describes with words and illustrates with her own photos the houses in which she would love to live, the cocoons, the nests which we would love to inhabit.

Un château sur la Riviera - L'art de vivre par Oitoemponto

Discover a luxurious wine château and private residence in the south of France designed by the innovative architecture firm OITOEMPONTO.

Near the glittering coast of the French Riviera, surrounded by a luscious cru classé vineyard, OITOEMPONTO architects oversaw the renaissance of Château Saint-Maur de Cogolin through an assiduous, four-year renovation. Using refined materials, they created a sumptuous and relaxing oasis that combines art, signature design pieces, and a sense of harmony both inside and outside the château.

This volume traces the renovation, from initial watercolor sketches and photographs–reproduced here on offset paper–through to the finished private family residence. This exquisitely illustrated volume takes readers on an intimate tour of the immense reception rooms, bedrooms and suites, entertainment areas, and secret chambers in the vast 17,000-square-foot château. This reinvention into a splendid reception space of incomparable charm is the residence’s most luxurious incarnation to date.

MOM

The book’s title reveals the identity of its protagonist: Kathleen McCain Engman has been posing for her son Charlie since 2009. And yet MOM shows us a face we never really get to know: while we soon become acquainted with her freckled complexion and intense gaze, her position in the images becomes increasingly unclear. Engman first began shooting his mother because she was available, ever-willing to meet the demands of one of her children. But what began as a casual, organic process evolved into an intense collaboration. The result is neither a family album nor a filial tribute but a much deeper and far more complex interaction: one that raises questions about the limits of familiarity, the rules and boundaries of roles and representation, vulnerability and control, and what it means to look and to be seen.

The Worm NASA

The Worm showcases over 200 images from NASA’s archives chosen with one simple criteria: each photograph must feature ‘the worm’.

Together, these images demonstrate not only the extent to which Danne & Blackburn’s 1975 NASA Graphic Program had been implemented before being rescinded in 1992, but also the incredible achievements by NASA personnel.

The unfinished final chapter of the book will showcase the return of the worm, as it flies once again aboard a SpaceX rocket on May 30, 2020.
