There’s been steadily growing interest and knowledge in Korean food across the globe in recent times – which can be seen reflected in the number of Korean restaurants and chains popping up. Of course, it’s helped that the cult food figure of David Chang and his Momofuko restaurants (as well as Lucky Peach magazine) have helped propel Korean flavours, techniques and classics into the mainstream. Just like some of Korea’s chilli-spiked dishes, this cuisine is very hot right now!
Not only is the food diverse and the flavours distinct, but the dishes are simple to create at home too. Little Korea contains the most popular Korean dishes eaten everyday on the streets and in homes across the nation. No kitchen gadgetry or trickery is required – this is food with a singular mission: to deliver maximum flavour and texture in a simple way.

“Reading this guy on the subject of waves and water is like reading Hemingway on bullfighting; William Burroughs on controlled substances; Updike on adultery. . . . a coming-of-age story, seen through the gloss resin coat of a surfboard.”—Sports Illustrated
Included in President Obama’s 2016 Summer Reading List Barbarian Days is William Finnegan’s memoir of an obsession, a complex enchantment. Surfing only looks like a sport. To initiates, it is something else: a beautiful addiction, a demanding course of study, a morally dangerous pastime, a way of life. Raised in California and Hawaii, Finnegan started surfing as a child. He has chased waves all over the world, wandering for years through the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, Africa. A bookish boy, and then an excessively adventurous young man, he went on to become a distinguished writer and war reporter. Barbarian Days takes us deep into unfamiliar worlds, some of them right under our noses—off the coasts of New York and San Francisco. It immerses the reader in the edgy camaraderie of close male friendships forged in challenging waves. Finnegan shares stories of life in a whites-only gang in a tough school in Honolulu. He shows us a world turned upside down for kids and adults alike by the social upheavals of the 1960s. He details the intricacies of famous waves and his own apprenticeships to them. Youthful folly—he drops LSD while riding huge Honolua Bay, on Maui—is served up with rueful humor. As Finnegan’s travels take him ever farther afield, he discovers the picturesque simplicity of a Samoan fishing village, dissects the sexual politics of Tongan interactions with Americans and Japanese, and navigates the Indonesian black market while nearly succumbing to malaria. Throughout, he surfs, carrying readers with him on rides of harrowing, unprecedented lucidity. Barbarian Days is an old-school adventure story, an intellectual autobiography, a social history, a literary road movie, and an extraordinary exploration of the gradual mastering of an exacting, little-understood art.
50 reasons your internet boyfriend Timothée Chalamet is perfection
By Billie Oliver
This book is a chic love letter to the shaggy-haired, angelically cheekboned heartthrob: Timothée Chalamet. It’s author Billie Oliver’s very own De Profundis, that’s not at all creepy – just celebratory. Well maybe a little creepy, but if it results in Timothee reaching out to Billie and her getting his number, well, that’s certainly worth a little creeping.
The world has fallen in love with Timothée Chalamet, thanks largely to his skillful performances in films like Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name and Beautiful Boy. But it isn’t just Timothée’s acting chops that have won him the world’s – particularly, the Twitter and Instagram world’s – devotion … Clearly, the aforementioned cheekbones go a long way, as does his floppy hair and dreamy green eyes. But, do you know he speaks French? That he takes red carpet selfies with Glenn Close? Or that he takes consistently bold risks on every red carpet, fashion-wise? (We all remember the Louis Vitton sequined harness.) That he’s happy to talk about that time he cried watching Interstellar for the first time because he thought his role was bigger? And that he brought his sister as his date to the Golden Globes Awards?
There are so many reasons to be crushing on Timothée Chalamet right now, so let us indulge the Chalamania and count just 50 of the things we adore about him most. And Timothée, if you’re reading this – call me.

Wild, unbändig und humorvoll – Beni Bischofs Inszenierungen folgen seinem unbändigen Schaffensdrang und verbinden gekonnt alle Medien: Von wandfüllenden Malereien über groteske Collagen zu filigranen Zeichnungen, von surrealen Objekten zu materialverschlingenden Skulpturen. In seinem pointierten künstlerischen Schaffen schlägt sich die Banalität des Alltags thematisch genauso nieder wie politische Diskussionen. Virtuos führt Beni Bischof den Betrachter aufs Glatteis und entlarvt die Mechanismen und Illusionen der uns umgebenden Medien-und Glamourwelt. Psychobuch (2014), seine erste Publikation in der Edition Patrick Frey, war zugleich Gesamtschau dieses dichten Schaffens sowie eigenständiges Künstlerbuch. Texte 1 (2015) erschien anlässlich der Verleihung des Manor-Kunstpreises 2015 und der damit verbundenen Einzelausstellung im Kunstmuseum St.Gallen. Mit Texte 2 erscheint nun der zweite Band im Taschenbuchformat und vereint einmal mehr Beni Bischofs überbordende Sammlung von Headlines, Slogans, Witzen, Junk-Mails, Lyrics, filmischen Dialogszenen, Lebensweisheiten und vielem mehr – eine momentane Auswahl und zugleich subjektive Quintessenz seines über Jahre angehäuften Textarchivs. (Nadia Veronese)
Getaway is a photobook that plays out in a parallel universe a little closer to the sun. The Canary Islands – almost exclusively a holiday destination for more than 3 million western tourists a year – is the backdrop of this performance. Five Danish photographers have been on a photographic expedition to this lost and blazing world and the book is a collection of images they brought back with them.
Getaway is about a place where we enjoy, dream, escape, recover and confront the absence of everyday life. That temporary reality we call vacation.
Bio: Ulrik Jantzen, Kasper Witte Larsen, Emil Jakobsen, Simon Caspersen and Kasper Kristoffersen work together in the photo collective Büro Jantzen. The collective was founded by Ulrik Jantzen, who graduated from the School of Journalism in Denmark, and who, over the past 15 years, has made his mark on the photographic scene in Denmark. Büro Jantzen has exhibited at multible galleries and museums in Denmark and abroad, won several photographic awards and published a number of photobooks.
Adolf Loos was an eloquent voice against the squandering of fine materials, ornamentation and unnecessary embellishments. The rational underpinnings of his later assertion that “ornament is crime” first appear in these polemical thrusts at the stylized work of the Viennese secessionists. Few are acquainted with his amusing, incisive, critical and philosophical literary works on applied design and the essence of style in fin de siecle Vienna. Loos often had a radical, yet innovative outlook on life that made him such a nuisance for many of his contemporaries. His provocative musings on an assortment of subjects portray him as a man of many interests, and possessing a keen feel for elegant design still valued today. This publication is now available in English for the first time.

The Movie Kama Sutra offers creative sex positions – including the ‘Potter’s Wheel’ (Ghost), ‘King of the World’ (Titanic) and, for the more sexually experimental, ‘Cable Drop’ (Mission: Impossible) – inspired by the most erotic moments in cinema history.

No real public figure has seen more fictious representations than POTUS
What single figure has been represented most frequently in Western film history? The answer: By far, the President of the United States.
This unique compendium of POTUSs on screen reveals both the ubiquity and remarkable range of presidential portrayals, from the earliest appearances to the present. Featuring 164 fictitious screen presidents—including the first female president, seen in the 1964 comedy Kisses for My President—the book shows film presidents making speeches, in the Oval office, riding around in limos, addressing the press, and in more private moments. Graphic designer Lea N. Michel has sorted these presidents into six key types—Father and Husband, Villain, Alien, Clown, Hero, Lover—which she has further sorted into a dizzying 240 subcategories, such as Shaking Hands, Looking Shocked at a Screen, or In in a Video Conference with a Terrorist.
Drawn from both films and TV, familiar works and lesser-known productions, the images highlight the intense relationship between fiction and reality in a time when the sitting president exploits all media to an unprecedented extent to market himself and to increase his popularity. You won’t find a more surprising or striking book this election.
Lea N. Michel is a Zurich-based graphic designer, working independently and as partner of Studio HOMI. She is also working as a teaching assistant at Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK.
Ludovic Balland runs the graphic design studio Typography Cabinet in Basel, Switzerland, and he is professor of typography at the Academy of Fine Arts HGBin Leipzig, Germany.

The companion volume to Peter Lindbergh’s first self-curated exhibition
The first-ever exhibition curated by Peter Lindbergh himself, shortly before his untimely death, Untold Stories at the Düsseldorf Kunstpalast served as a blank canvas for the photographer’s unrestrained vision and creativity. Given total artistic freedom, Lindbergh curated an uncompromising collection that sheds an unexpected light on his colossal oeuvre. This artist's book, the official companion to the landmark exhibition, offers an extensive, firsthand look at the highly personal collection. When it came to printing his photos, Lindbergh chose a special uncoated paper – a thin sheet with a soft, open surface – as a deliberate aesthetic statement.
Renowned the world over, Lindbergh’s images have left an indelible mark on contemporary culture and photo history. Here, the photographer experiments with his own oeuvre and narrates new stories while staying true to his lexicon. In both emblematic andnever-before-seen images, he challenges his own icons and presents intimate moments shared with personalities who had been close to him for years, including Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman, Robin Wright, Jessica Chastain, Jeanne Moreau, Naomi Campbell, Charlotte Rampling and many more.
This XL volume presents more than 150 photographs—many of them unpublished or short-lived, often having been commissioned by monthly fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, Rolling Stone, W Magazine, or The Wall Street Journal. An extensive conversation between Lindbergh and Kunstpalast director Felix Krämer, as well as an homage by close friend Wim Wenders, offer fresh insights into the making of the collection. The result is an intimate personal statement by Lindbergh about his work.
Peter Lindbergh(1944–2019) was a master of his craft who made his mark in the halls of photography history, with such credits as shooting the first American Vogue cover under Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, bringing together for the first time a group of young women who would become the ’90s supermodels, and numerous exhibitions at renowned institutions including Victoria & Albert Museum in London and Centre Pompidou in Paris, as well as in solo exhibitions at Hamburger Bahnhof, the Berlin Museum for Contemporary Art, Bunkamura Museum of Art in Tokyo, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, and Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf.
The contributing authors
Since 2003, Felix Krämer has been the curator of many notable exhibitions and the author and editor of numerous publications on modern art. In 2013, he was named Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. After working at the Hamburger Kunsthalle and the Städel Museum in Frankfurt am Main, Krämer has been General Director of the Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf since October 2017.
Director, author, and photographer Wim Wenders is one of the most prominent German filmmakers today. He is best known for Paris, Texas (1984), Wings of Desire (1987), Pina (2011), and The Salt of the Earth (2014), a documentary about Sebastião Salgado which he co-directed. Many artists have been influenced by his works, among them his close friend, the late Peter Lindbergh.

‘It was only after the Mexican War of Independence that the Indian fountain sprang forth. Only after the Spanish crown was expelled did the zeitgeist of Mexican art look to its ancient past with overdue awe. Ever since, painters, writers, and architects have drawn inspiration from this bloodline. Mexican modernism and muralism both took the pre-Hispanic undercurrent and blended it with the sensibility of their time, in the pursuit of national identity. From a vein out of this river emerged Agustín Hernández’. —Tezontle Studio & Luis Orozco Madero
Praxis, Agustín Hernández is the fourth book in a series devoted to some of our favourite architects, the houses they build, and the stories behind them.
Born in 1924, Agustín Hernández came of age as an architect in Mexico as modernist ideas coalesced with a renewed pride in the country’s past. He was a frontrunner in combining the symbols, myths, and urban planning principles of pre-Columbian civilisations to create imposing architectural monuments that even today retain their avant-garde nature—from the military academy he built as a modern-day Mayan ceremonial ground to the remote meditation centre commissioned by his sister, based on the symbolism of the snake, and the studio-home that he built for himself in 1975: Praxis, a geometric treehouse that still towers over the Bosques de las Lomas neighbourhood of Mexico City.

‘After New York Living Rooms and Paris Living Rooms, voilà: Berlin Living Rooms, the third and final photographic instalment in the trilogy. It is the culmination of a project that started in 1995 when Tina Brown, then the editor-in-chief of the New Yorker magazine, commissioned me an essay. The idea was to photograph writers’ rooms without the writers present. I decided it would be more revealing and, above all, more exciting to feature the living rooms of a varied mix of prominent New Yorkers. Little did I know that this essay, which awoke a keen interest when it appeared in an October 1995 issue of the New Yorker, would take me on a photographic journey that would produce three books and that ends today in 2017!’

How can we make sense of a world where we have both too many billionaires and too many foodbanks? We're supposed to go to university, forge a career, get wealthier, buy a house - but why is that so hard for most of us to achieve?
Split makes sense of our world by looking at class society - delving into the deep-rooted economic inequalities that shape our lives. From the gig economy, rising debt and the housing crisis that affects the majority of people, to the world of tax havens and unfair inheritance that affect the few…
Now is the time to fight back against the 1%.

The Japanese philosopher and aesthete's definitive, hugely influential exposition of his philosophy of folkcrafts, setting out the hallmarks of Japanese design as we know it today: anonymity, quality, simplicity and honesty—and, of course, wabi-sabi, the beauty of imperfection
A Penguin Classic
Our lives are filled with objects. Everyday things used in everyday settings, they are our constant companions. As such, writes Soetsu Yanagi, they should be made with care and built to last, treated with respect and even affection. They should be natural and simple, sturdy and safe—an aesthetic fulfillment of our practical needs. They should, in short, be things of beauty.
Long revered as the authority on craftsmanship and Japanese aesthetics, Yanagi devoted his life and writing to defend the value of craft. In an age of feeble and ugly machine-made things, The Beauty of Everyday Things is a call for each of us to deepen our relationship with the objects that surround us. Inspired by the work of the simple artisans Yanagi encountered on his lifelong travels through Japan and Korea, this now-classic book is a heartfelt defence of modest, honest, handcrafted objects, from traditional teacups to jars to paper—objects that exemplify the beauty of everyday things.
