Ein Esskulturbuch von Pia Fischer, David Jäggi und Anna Marchini Camia
Print Matters! Publishing – 2020
Wir werfen einen Blick in Schweizer Küchen und damit auf die aktuelle Alltagskultur. Was auf unseren Tellern landet, ist relevanter Ausdruck von Zeitgeist und erzählt von den verschiedenen Gewohnheiten, Trends, Wertvorstellungen und politischen Haltungen innerhalb einer Gesellschaft. Das Buchprojekt «Schweizer Alltagsküche» ist eine Momentaufnahme zeitgenössischer Koch- und Esskultur der Schweiz. Das Sachbuch sammelt Rezepte vom wohlbekannten Traditionsgericht wie «Älplermagronen» über das exotisch anmutende Thai-Curry bis zu den hippen «Superfoods». Eine einfache Sammlung gegenwärtiger Alltagsrezepte und gleichzeitig eine Auseinandersetzung mit Identitäten und Phänomenen im Jahr 2020. Die Leser*innen entdecken einerseits ihre Lieblingsgerichte und bekommen andererseits einen anderen Blick auf den eigenen Teller und damit auch über dessen Rand hinaus ermöglicht.
Mit ethnografischen Feldforschungsmethoden, Kochbuchrecherchen und gestützt auf entsprechende Fachliteratur ist eine Rezeptsammlung von aktuell geläufigen Alttagsrezepten entstanden. Diese sind allesamt inszeniert, fotografiert und visueller Hauptbestandteil der Publikation. Die etwa 80 Gerichte sind in sechs grosse Kapitel eingeteilt: Traditionelles, Klassisches, Exotisches, Schweizerisch-Italienisches, Neumodisches und Geselliges. Jede Speise ist mit einem kurzen Informationstext und Rezeptangaben beschrieben. Ergänzt wird unsere Rezeptesammlung mit Kapiteln zu Beilagen, Gewürzen, Fertigdesserts und gängigen Snacks für Zwischendurch. Verschiedene Arten von Verzeichnissen sowie längere, wissenschaftliche Textsorten am Schluss des Buches verschaffen nochmals andere Zugänge zur Thematik.

Wes Anderson’s beloved films announce themselves through a singular aesthetic – one that seems too vivid, unique, and meticulously constructed to possibly be real. Not so – in Accidentally Wes Anderson, Wally Koval collects the world’s most Anderson-like sites in all their faded grandeur and pop-pastel colours, telling the story behind each stranger than-fiction-location.
Based on the viral online phenomenon and community of the same name, Accidentally Wes Anderson celebrates the unique aesthetic that millions of Anderson fans love – capturing the symmetrical, the atypical, the unexpected, the vibrantly patterned, and distinctively coloured in arresting photographs from around the world.
Authorised by Wes Anderson himself, and appealing to the millions who love his films, this book is also for fans of Cabin Porn and Van Life – and avid travellers and aspiring adventurers of all kinds.

Japan may be one of the world’s biggest economies, a global leader in everything from architecture to food and a country whose brands have flourished around the world, but it remains a bit of a mystery. Somehow it is simultaneously familiar and hard to fathom – or it has been, until now. This book is the culmination of years of reporting across the country by Monocle and it delivers a unique insight into the people, places and products that define Japan. Whether you’re planning a visit or simply curious, The Monocle Book of Japan will unpack the nation for you. We’ll take you from snowy Hokkaido in the north to the tropical southern islands of Okinawa and, along the way, deep-dive into the worlds of culture, design, retail and more. It’s Japan revealed as never before.

A guide to slowing down, enjoying more and being happy
Tyler Brûlé, Andrew Tuck, Joe Pickard, Josh Fehnert
Monocle has always been a champion of taking it slow. It has encouraged readers to dive into a lake and go for a run. To sleep well. To eat food whose makers are proud of its provenance. In a shouty, jabbing-finger moment in history, it has done its bit to argue for a new modern etiquette to be generous with our time, hospitality and forgiveness. Now its editors and correspondents have brought all of this together in The Monocle Manifesto for a Gentler Life, a book that urges us all to slow down, reconnect, make good things and see nice places. And it also knows when to wear a cheeky smile. Chapters include:
• An illustrated guide to being nice, respecting your neighbour and controlling your social media rants.
• Profiles of the happiest nations – and the least lonely too.
• How to build a house that’s good for you and your family.
• Essays from leading thinkers and great writers on what we can gain if we shift gear.
• The businesses charting a better course – from management to pride in production.
• Food – a celebration of the locally made, the chefs that bring people together and a recipe or two.
• The objects to own that will give pleasure for years.
• The people who changed direction, slowed down and made it work.
• The compact cities where you can run a company, be inspired, have a good social life – and be hiking in a forest at 5pm.

The revolutionary architect’s life and work in an updated monograph
Zaha Hadid was a revolutionary architect. For years, she was widely acclaimed and won numerous prizes despite building practically nothing. Some even said her work was simply impossible to build. Yet, during the latter years of her life, Hadid’s daring visions became a reality, bringing a new and unique architectural language to cities and structures such as the Port House in Antwerp, the Al Janoub Stadium near Doha, Qatar, and the spectacular new airport terminal in Beijing.
By her untimely death in 2016, Hadid was firmly established among architecture’s finest elite, working on projects in Europe, China, the Middle East, and the United States. She was the first female architect to win both the Pritzker Prize for architecture and the prestigious RIBA Royal Gold Medal, with her long-time Partner Patrik Schumacher now the leader of Zaha Hadid Architects and in charge of many new projects.
Based on the massive TASCHEN monograph, this book is now available in an extensivelyupdated and accessible edition covering Hadid’s complete works, including ongoing projects. With abundantphotographs, in-depth sketches, and Hadid’s own drawings, the volume traces the evolution of her career, spanning not only her most pioneering buildings but also the furniture and interior designsthat were integrated into her unique, and distinctly 21st-century, universe.
Philip Jodidio studied art history and economics at Harvard, and edited Connaissance des Arts for over 20 years. His TASCHEN books include the Architecture Now! series and monographs on Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava, Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, Shigeru Ban, Richard Meier, and Zaha Hadid.

Mario Testino selects his finest male portraiture from the past 30 years. As costume, gender play, photojournalism, and fashion collide, this Eden of male allure is testimony both to Testino’s unfailing eye for immediacy and elegance, and to the evolution of male self-expression over the past three decades.
It has been said that Marrakech awakens all of the senses. Whether it is seeing the intricate zellige tilework; smelling the various spices sold at the souks; hearing the call to prayer emanate from the nearby mosques; touching the supple leather used to make a pair of babouches (leather sandals); tasting a flavorful tagine, Marrakech never fails to excite. Located just west of the Atlas Mountains, the city has been inhabited by Berber farmers for centuries. It has been dubbed the “Ochre City” because of the proliferation of red sandstone buildings and the red city walls, which now enclose the Medina, home to Jemaa el-Fnaa, one of the busiest squares in Africa.
Marrakech overflows with culture and has been inspiring visitors for decades. From Yves Saint Laurent to Talitha Getty, Winston Churchill to Mick Jagger, Marrakech has attracted great icons inspired by its eternal spirit as well as its sweet, beautiful life. Yves Saint Laurent’s intimate relationship to this city lead to the opening of a museum dedicated to his legendary work. The annual Marrakech International Film Festival draws a prominent crowd. Museums abound, exhibiting Moroccan arts, photography, carpets, and the Andalusian design aesthetic that permeates the city’s architecture. La Mamounia hotel, opened in 1923, offers a storied history, which includes hosting guests such as Winston Churchill. Vanessa Branson’s El Fenn is a collection of traditional riads that form a stunning boutique hotel. There are countless ways to be immersed in the culture of Marrakech, but perhaps the best place to start is with a simple glass of mint tea.
