Moscow in the 1930s is a symbol of Soviet paradise; a fairy-tale capital where, in Stalin's words, 'life has become better, life has become merrier". Beautiful, passionate, Moscow Chestnova bears her captial's name, and seeks the happiness it promises. She flits from man to man, fascinated by the brave new world supposedly taking shape around her, on a quest for the better life. This anarchic satire is accompanied by related works - short stories, an essay and a screenplay - and through Robert Chandler's acclaimed new translations, Platonov's extraordinary prose and original vision can at last be experienced in full.

The Master and Margarita (Vintage Classic Russians Series)

The Master and Margarita (Vintage Classic Russians Series)

£10.99

Quantity
50th Anniversary edition of the Russian classic, The Master and Margarita. When Satan arrives in 1930s Moscow, he brings with him a league of misfits that includes his mistress, the witch Hella, and a black cat with an unwholesome taste for vodka. Hellbent on terrorising the elite of the city, they announce their visit in theatrical outbursts of song, sudden deaths and expanding dimensions. Intersected with the story of Pontius Pilate, Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita is striking not only for its imaginative scope, but also its disavowal of Realism, overthrown in favour of a carnivalesque satire intended to gouge away the respectable, atheistic façade of Russian society. This edition of The Master and Margarita is part of the Vintage Classic Russians Series: published for the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution. The book is beautifully designed and is one of six epic masterpieces that have survived controversy, censorship and suppression to influence decades of thought and artistic expression.

Rodchenko: Design

Rodchenko: Design

£14.95

Quantity
This is a new title in the "Design" series and an excellent introduction to the life and work of this versatile Russian artist. This concise, comprehensive and informative work focuses largely on Rodchenko's graphic work in the form of book jackets, posters and advertising. Alexander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (1891-1953) was a central figure in the Russian Constructivist art movement; a radical activist, a pioneer of photomontage, a theorist, and a teacher. He was an active force in the organization of the first museums of modern art that arose in Russia in the first years after the Russian Revolution of 1917. Attending art school in 1914 in Kazan was to be a defining influence: that year Russian Futurists performed in the town, and Rodchenko saw their leading figures in action. It transformed his vision and he was still working with Futurist artists and their ideas twenty-five years later. And it was at art school where Rodchenko first met the artist Varvara Stepanova, with whom he collaborated extensively, and who would become his life-long partner. Central in the re-examination of art and its place in society after the Revolution, and in the search for a new culture without the class implications of the past, Rodchenko's radical approach proposed a new understanding of a constructed, rather than a tastefully composed, culture.  Dimensions: 15.3 x 1.5 x 22.9cm 95 pages
Petrograd, 1917: Witnesses to the Russian Revolution

Petrograd, 1917: Witnesses to the Russian Revolution

£25.00

Quantity
The dramatic and chaotic events surrounding the Russian Revolution have been studied and written about extensively for the last hundred years, by historians and journalists alike. However, some of the most compelling and valuable accounts are those recorded by eyewitnesses, many of whom were foreign nationals caught in Petrograd at the time. Drawing from the Bodleian Library's rich collections, this book features extracts from letters, journals, diaries and memoirs written by a diverse cast of onlookers. Primarily British, the authors include Sydney Gibbes, English tutor to the royal children, Bertie Stopford, an antiques dealer who smuggled the Vladimir tiara and other Romanov jewels into the UK, and the private secretary to Lord Milner in the British War Cabinet. Contrasting with these are a memoir by Stinton Jones, an engineer who found himself sharing a train compartment with Rasputin, a newspaper report by governess Janet Jeffrey who survived a violent confrontation with the Red Army, and letters home from Labour politician, Arthur Henderson. Accompanied by seventy contemporary illustrations, these first-hand accounts are put into context with introductory notes, giving a fascinating insight into the tumultuous year of 1917. Dimensions: 16.6 x 3.3 x 24.2cm 304 pages
Tatlin's Tower: Monument to Revolution

Tatlin's Tower: Monument to Revolution

£35.00

Quantity
The plans for the gigantic Monument to the Third International were completed in 1920 by Vladimir Tatlin, the Russian painter and visionary designer who was a key figure of Russian constructivism. Planned as the headquarters and monument of the Comintern in Petrograd, it was to be made from industrial materials - iron, glass, and steel - as a towering symbol of modernity. Because of the political turmoil and housing shortages in Russia after the 1917 Revolution, the building was never constructed, but it remains a celebrated icon of revolutionary art. In this insightful book, Norbert Lynton investigates the sources and symbolism of Tatlin's Tower and considers not only its significance but also the broader role of allegory in abstraction and as an expression of man's highest aspirations.

Eduardo Paolozzi

Eduardo Paolozzi

£45.00

Quantity
Artist and sculptor, Eduardo Paolozzi was a unique and prolific cultural figure. His work was instantly recognisable and chronicles the significant changes in British art from the 1950s to the post-post-modern late 1990s.  This imposing and stunningly illustrated hardback book provides an extensive overview of his prolific and complex work across from all periods and across all media including: sculpture, ceramics, tapestry, printmaking, collage and film. An Italian Scot, Paolozzie began his studies at Edinburgh College of Art, before moving on to the Ruskin Drawing School and later the Slade. In the 1950s he became a founding member of the Independent Group, though he resisted the 'Pop' label, preferring instead to see his ground breaking interdisciplinarity as an expansion and extension of radical Surrealism. Dedicating a chapter to each facet of Paolozzi's wide-ranging practice - including, in turn, his bronze, aluminium and public sculptures, as well as his early collages and his innovative screenprints - this book offers the definitive, illustrated, art-historical appraisal of an artist whose work continues to fascinate and inspire. Eduardo's The Head of Invention sculpture for Terence Conran rests outside the entrance to the Design Museum.

Paul Smith's Cycling Scrapbook

Paul Smith's Cycling Scrapbook

£29.95

Quantity
With a foreword from David Millar, this lively 'scrapbook' seeks to illustrate Paul Smith's favourite people, races and places in the cycling world through the romantic and beautiful images and places that inspired him. From his collection of cycling jerseys and his extensive library of cycling publications and brochures of the 1950s and 1960s, to the inspiration he has found in his cycling heroes (Coppi, Anquetil, Bartali) and his collaborations with bike-makers (Mercian and Pinarello) and race organiders, this is a personal and highly visual journey that connects Smith's love of cycling with his love of design. One climax to this parallel career came in 2013, when he was invited to design the legendary maglia rosa - the pink jersey worn by the leader of the Giro d'Italia, which was blessed by Pope Francis I and presented to the winner. Ultimately, this is not merely a book about one man's enthusiasm for a sport, but an insight into how the people, stories and imagery that fill this passion have influenced one of the most successful personalities in the design world. Contains over 400 images and illustrations Dimensions: 24.1 x 2.5 x 34 cm 256 pages

Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex Worldis the official catalogue that accompanies the opening exhibition of the new Design Museum. It is essentially a book about what design means today.

In this book, eleven designers from around the world – including OMA, Hussein Chalayan, Kenya Hara and Neri Oxman – explore a spectrum of contemporary themes. The result is a diverse portrait of the world that includes sentient robots, networked sexuality, slow fashion and settled nomads. These are explored through the eyes of the designers themselves and through a series of essays by renowned writers and thinkers. The result captures the emotionally charged mood of the present and suggests that design is a way of looking at the world, and a way to change it.
