In the 1970s, photographer Hugh Holland masterfully captured the burgeoning culture of skateboarding against a sometimes harsh but always sunny Southern California landscape.
This never-before-published collection showcases his black-and-white photographs that document young skateboarders sidewalk surfing off Mulholland Drive in concrete drainage ditches and empty swimming pools in a drought-ridden Southern California. From suburban backyard haunts to the asphalt streets that connected them, this was the place that inspired the legendary Dogtown and Z-Boys skateboarders.
With their requisite bleached-blond hair, tanned bodies, tube socks, and Vans, these young outsiders evoke the sometimes reckless but always exhilarating origins of skateboarding lifestyle and culture.

“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.
Arrows, swashes, swooshes, globes, sunbursts and parallel, vertical and horizontal lines, words, letters, shapes and pictures. Logos are the most ubiquitous and essential of all graphic design devices, representing ideas, beliefs and, of course, things. They primarily identify products, businesses and institutions, but they are also associated, hopefully in a positive way, with the ethos or philosophy of those entities. The 50 logos in this book are examples of good ideas in the service of representation, reputation and identification.

It is so natural to want our dating days to come to an end, but we should never lose sight of the genuine merits and delights that lie closely entwined with their pains.
Dating might seem like a trivial and relatively inconsequential part of love, but it is in fact key to getting into the kind of relationship that can last and help us flourish. Dating sits on top of some of the largest themes of love: how to know whether or not someone is right for us; how soon to settle and how long to search; how to be at once honest and seductive; how to politely extricate oneself without causing offence.
This indispensable guide teaches us about the history of dating, the reason why our dating days can be so anxious, how to optimise our attempts at dating and how to digest and overcome the so-called ‘bad’ dates. The book is at once heartfelt and perceptive, and never minimises the agony, joys and confusions of our dating days and nights. It provides us with a roadmap to the varied sometimes delightful, sometimes daunting realities of dating.
A Brief History of Dating • How to Prove Attractive to Someone on a Date • What to Wear • Common Oddities We Meet When Dating • Why the First Kiss May Be the Best Sex We Ever Have • Two Reasons Why We May Be Single
Extracts from the Book:
On What to Talk About
"Our initial impulse might be to pick up on a current event, some detail of the environment or a few impressive things about our careers. But if a date is a test for the success of a long-term relationship, then what we should really be pursuing is mutual understanding of our deeper selves.”
On Should We Play It Cool When We Like Someone?
"We become experts at deliberately not phoning or sending messages, at treating our dates in a carefully off-handed manner and in subtly pretending that we don’t much care if we never cross their paths again. We are told that the only way to get them to care about us is to pretend not to care for them. And in the process, we waste a lot of time, we may lose them altogether and we have to suffer the indignity of denying that we feel a desire that should never have been associated with shame in the first place.”
On Dating Too Little
"One of the most important principles of choosing a lover sensibly is not to feel in any hurry to make a choice. Being satisfied with being single is a precondition of satisfactory coupledom. We cannot choose wisely when remaining single feels unbearable. We have to be utterly at peace with the prospect of solitude in order to have any chance of forming a good relationship, or we’ll love no longer being single rather more than we love the partner who spared us being so."
The Love Series by The School of Life aims to be like an ideal friend around the dilemmas of the heart. Each title zeroes in on one of the central issues we’re liable to confront – from dating to heartbreak, from affairs to arguments. What unites the books is their combination of psychological insight, humanity and warmth: They lend us the advice and comfort we need to find the happiness we deserve.

We live under a cheerful delusion that sex might nowadays be easy - because we have been 'liberated' from the hang-ups and taboos of the olden days. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. Despite a veneer of openness, sex remains an extraordinarily complicated business, hard to discuss and surrounded by shame and unspoken desires.
This book provides a relief from the loneliness and confusion, explaining how sex truly operates and what it aims at. The book demonstrates that, far from thinking about sex too much, we haven't begun to think about it as deeply as we should.
This book is suitable for adults only.

Most books that want to change us seek to make us richer or thinner. This book wants to help us to be nicer: that is, less irritable, more patient, readier to listen, warmer, less prickly. Niceness may not have the immediate allure of money or fame, but it is a hugely important quality nevertheless and one that we neglect at our peril.
This is a guidebook to the uncharted landscape of niceness, gently leading us around the key themes of this forgotten quality. We learn how to be charitable, how to forgive, how to be natural, and how to reassure. We learn that niceness is compatible with strength and is no indicator of naivety. Niceness deserves to be rediscovered as one of the highest of all human achievements.
Why We Don't Really Want to be Nice

In 1998, TASCHEN introduced the world to the masterful art of Touko Laaksonen with The Art of Pleasure. Prior to that, Laaksonen, better known as Tom of Finland, enjoyed an intense cult following in the international gay community but was largely unknown to a broader audience.
In 2009, TASCHEN followed up with the ultimate Tom overview: Tom of Finland XXL, a beautiful big collector’s edition with over 1,000 images, covering six decades of the artist’s career. The work was gathered from collections across the United States and Europe with the help of the Tom of Finland Foundation, featuring many drawings, paintings, and sketches never previously reproduced. Other images had only been seen out of context and were finally presented in the sequential order Tom intended for full artistic appreciation and erotic impact.
The elegant oversized volume showed the full range of Tom’s talent, from sensitive portraits to frank sexual pleasure to tender expressions of love and haunting tributes to young men struck down by AIDS, and was completed by eight commissioned essays on Tom’s social and personal impact by Camille Paglia, John Waters, Armistead Maupin, Todd Oldham, and others, plus a scholarly analysis of individual drawings by art historian Edward Lucie-Smith.
The only thing missing from Tom of Finland XXL was a widely affordable price tag—until now. The new Tom of Finland XXL is still big enough to work your biceps, and includes all of the original content, but costs a fraction of the original price. You’re welcome.
Dian Hanson produced a variety of men’s magazines from 1976 to 2001, including Juggs, Outlaw Biker, and Leg Show, before becoming TASCHEN’s Sexy Book Editor. Her titles include the “body part” series, The Art of Pin-up, Psychedelic Sex, and Ren Hang.
John Waters was born in 1946 in Baltimore, Maryland, and briefly attended New York University. He made his first film, Hag in a Black Leather Jacket, in 1964, and has since directed 17 others, including Pink Flamingos, Polyester, Hairspray, and Pecker. He lives in Baltimore.
Camille Paglia is the author of six books, including her groundbreaking analysis of sexual ambiguity in art and literature, Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson. Paglia is Professor of Humanities and Media Studies at University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA, where she lives.
Todd Oldham’s studio is a multifaceted design studio for film, photography, furniture, interior decor, books, and even floral arrangements. He lives in New York City and in eastern Pennsylvania.
Armistead Maupin launched his fictive Tales of the City serial in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1976, later released as a six-volume series of novels, three of which were produced as miniseries for television. He lives in San Francisco.
Edward Lucie-Smith was born in 1933 in Kingston, Jamaica, and schooled at Oxford. He has published over 100 books, including Sexuality in Western Art and Latin American Art of the 20th Century. He lives in London and travels extensively.

Selber Pasta machen ist nicht schwierig. Wenn man weiss, wie es geht.
«Pasta» ist das Grundlagenwerk für hausgemachte Pasta, das auch jene Fragen klärt, die oft unbeantwortet bleiben – etwa diejenige nach dem richtigen Mehl für die verschiedenen Pastasorten: Wann braucht man Hartweizengriess, wann Dunst, was ist Farina Tipo 00…? Wie wird das Getreide angebaut, aus dem diese Mahlprodukte entstehen und wie funktioniert eine Mühle? Mit welcher Technik kann man Pastateig auch ohne Pastamaschine 0.5 mm dünn auswallen? Wie verhindert man, dass Tagliatelle beim Trocknen verkleben?
In präzisen Anleitungen in Text und Bild zeigen Slow-Food-Köchin Anna Pearson und Fotografin Catherine Pearson zunächst, wie man 30 verschiedene Pastaformen zubereitet, viele davon ohne jegliches Zubehör wie Pastamaschine etc. In 40 saisonalen Rezepten werden die gelernten Formen dann zu Klassikern der italienischen Küche und neuen Pastakreationen verarbeitet. Schliesslich führt eine Reise in die Toskana zum Ursprung der Pasta: Auf dem Biohof «Podere Il Casale» haben die beiden Autorinnen alles über eine der wichtigsten Grundzutaten, den Hartweizen, gelernt und das Erlebte und ihre Erkenntnisse für ihr Buch in einer kleinen Reportage zusammengefasst – denn zu vermitteln, wie Getreide angebaut und verarbeitet wird, ist ihnen ebenso wichtig, wie zu zeigen, wie man Orecchiette und Garganelli formt.
«Pasta» wurde 2019 mit jeweils einer Silbermedaille beim Swiss Gourmetbook Award und beim Literarischen Wettbewerb der Gastronomischen Akademie Deutschland (GAD) ausgezeichnet und hat beim Gourmand World Cookbook Award für die Schweiz in der Kategorie «Italien» gewonnen.

Drenge (Boys) by Frederik Danielsen, depicts the formative period from boy to man. A period where one gets the first profound feelings and the first hard blows. This universal life phase takes place everywhere, but in Drenge it plays out in the Danish small island Als, the surroundings where Danielsen grew up. The island resembles outskirts, but Drenge are not a book about growing up on the edge of life in the cities. For the six boys depicted, the outskirts are the centre of existence.They are fixing mopeds, driving races, do not drink beer yet and only talk about girls when no one is listening. In Drenge, boyhood and everyday life are mixed with teenage nervousness, coming of age and raw Danish nature.

Scandinavia Dreaming illustrates today’s evolving story of Nordic design: one that is equal parts elegance, function, and tradition.
The nuanced realm of Nordic design has two personalities. On one side, there sits the open, light, friendly, and democratic constituent. And, on the other hand, is its moody counterpart: sleek and sophisticated; timeless and traditional; and deeply rooted in the sensations and juxtapositions of nature. Within the lines of tile-covered roofs born from the existence of nearby clay deposits and large windows that let in light during the shorter winter days, insight into this special thread of skilled craftsmanship awaits. Scandinavia Dreaming presents dazzling interiors, architecture, and products that show the richness, variety, and intensity of contemporary Nordic spaces.
Artisans fresh from design school breathe new life into the wonted usage of tile, wood, glass, ceramics, and other customarily Nordic materials. Profiles of brands and personalities that have influenced and, arguably, brought Nordic threads to the forefront of design conversations, tell an intriguing story: an aesthetic and historic journey through a vast world of style and heritage. Design firms such as Hay, Ferm Living, and Frama are highlighted and extolled for the new layer of warmth and energy that they bring to contemporary Danish design while honoring Scandinavian aesthetics and a space’s need to be both livable and logical. Finnish home textiles by Klaus Haapeniemi and Kustaa Saksi prove that the categories of art and décor are not mutually exclusive. Be it the painstaking searches of Copenhagen’s Gubi design house for neglected furniture that needs a well-honed touch before becoming pieces of the current design narrative or the tantalizing sculptures of Oslo-based designers Kneip that illustrate and investigate the phenomena of nature whilst reflecting the gentle coexistence of Nordic architecture with its surroundings, there exists a seamless pairing of the aesthetic and the historical within this iconic tale of design.
The projects within Scandinavia Dreaming translate to any four walls and readily invite transformation from page to reality. Told through anecdotes from those who live in them and from those who exist in other sectors of the creative community, Scandinavia Dreaming tells of a design school that has a worldwide reputation for its effortless combination of classical restraint and warm materials.

Karl-Heinz Drescher – Berlin Typo Posters, Texts and Interviews
Karl-Heinz Drescher (born on October 7, 1936 in Quirl; died on May 19, 2011 in Berlin) was a graphic artist working at Bertolt Brecht’s world famous theater Berliner Ensemble as a graphic designer for almost 40 years. In addition to his work at this house, Drescher also worked for other organizers, museums, galleries, and theaters, amongst others the Akademie der Künste der DDR, the Maxim-Gorki-Theater, and the Deutsche Staatsoper in Berlin. His catalog of works today comprises over 400 posters, about one third printed with letterpress.
In a one-year research, the designer Markus Lange contacted Drescher’s family and conducted various interviews with companions and friends to find out more about this talented designer, who studied from 1955 to 1960 in the former GDR at the same school as he did (Burg Giebichenstein, formerly Hochschule für industrielle Formgestaltung).
For the first time, this book summarizes most of Drescher’s (typographic) posters in one comprehensive volume and contains texts and interviews by various authors such as Dr. Friedrich Diekmann, Dr. Sylke Wunderlich, Helmut Brade, Niklaus Troxler, Gerd Fleischmann, Jamie Murphy, Erik Spiekermann, Ferdinand Ulrich, Götz Gramlich, Peter Kammerer, Vera Tenschert, Cesarina and Alessandro Drescher. “Karl-Heinz Drescher—Berlin Typo Posters, Texts, and Interviews” serves as a review of the life of an extraordinary theater graphic designer but also as an inspiration for the here and now.
'ToiletMartin PaperParr' is a high-impact visual volume revealing the most iconic images from the prolific archives of internationally celebrated artist Martin Parr and the duo who created 'Toiletpaper', Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari.
Martin Parr’s ironic, full colour images combine perfectly with the irreverent and poignant wit created by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari. The 120 vibrant back-to-back images included in this compelling volume are sensually and visually appealing, as well as being reflective of reality. This book of the books shakes up the mind and leads the eye in every direction.

More than just a slogan on a t-shirt, feminism is a radical tool for fighting back against structural violence and injustice. Feminism, Interrupted is a bold call to seize feminism back from the cultural gatekeepers and return it to its radical roots.
Lola Olufemi explores state violence against women, the fight for reproductive justice, transmisogyny, gendered Islamophobia and solidarity with global struggles, showing that the fight for gendered liberation can change the world for everybody when we refuse to think of it solely as women's work. Including testimonials from Sisters Uncut, migrant groups working for reproductive justice, prison abolitionists and activists involved in the international fight for Kurdish and Palestinian rights, Olufemi emphasises the link between feminism and grassroots organising.
Reclaiming feminism from the clutches of the consumerist, neoliberal model, Feminism, Interrupted shows that when 'feminist' is more than a label, it holds the potential for radical transformative work.
The Author: Lola Olufemi is a black feminist writer and organiser from London. She facilitates workshops on feminism and histories of political organising in schools, universities and local communities. She is the co-author of A FLY Girl's Guide to University: Being a Woman of Colour at Cambridge and Other Institutions of Power and Elitism (Verve Poetry Press, 2019).
