´´Jauchzet, frohlocket, auf, preiset die Tage!´´ Ein großes Werk und Langzeitprojekt ist vollendet: TASCHEN freut sich, nach rund zehn Jahren mit den lang ersehnten Alben Good News, Part II und Lost & Found, Part I die auf fünf Bände angelegte David-LaChapelle-Anthologie komplettieren zu können, die mit LaChapelle Land (1996) begann und mit Hotel LaChapelle (1999) und Heaven to Hell (2006) fortgesetzt wurde. Beide Bände zeigen noch nie in Buchform veröffentlichte Arbeiten des Künstlers, der wie kein anderer Zitate aus Religion, Porno, Kunst- und Popgeschichte zu einer unverwechselbaren, hochartifiziellen Ästhetik amalgamiert und in seinen surrealen Inszenierungen und grellbunten, opulenten Arrangements stets auch Themen wie Konsum- und Körperfetischismus, Genderfragen und Spiritualität verhandelt.Good News steht eindeutig im Zeichen des Sakralen, von frühen Aufnahmen nackter Engel und Liebender aus dem New York der 1980er bis zu ganz aktuellen Bildern, auf denen sich LaChapelles Refugium auf Hawaii in einen trippigen Garten Eden und Celebrities in Heilige verwandeln. Ebenfalls zu sehen: Beispiele aus anderen jüngeren Werkgruppen wie Earth Laughs In Flowers oder Awakened, die die vielen Facetten seiner Kunst widerspiegeln.In Good News sind zu sehen: frühe Akte aus den 1980ern in NYC, Pamela Anderson, Lana Del Rey, Sharon Gault, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Paris Jackson, David LaChapelle, Amanda Lepore, Miriam Makeba, Sergei Polunin, Tupac Shakur, Elizabeth Taylor und viele andere ...Lost + Found, Part I und Good News, Part II werden einzeln verkauft.Eine vollständige zweibändige Limited Collector´s Edition wird bald erhältlich sein.

On November 14, 1889, Nellie Bly, the crusading young female reporter for Joseph Pulitzer’s World newspaper, left New York City by steamship on a quest to break the record for the fastest trip around the world. Also departing from New York that day - and heading in the opposite direction by train - was a young journalist from The Cosmopolitan magazine, Elizabeth Bisland. Each woman was determined to outdo Jules Verne’s fictional hero Phileas Fogg and circle the globe in less than eighty days. The dramatic race that ensued would span 28 thousand miles, captivate the nation, and change both competitors’ lives forever. The two women were a study in contrasts. Nellie Bly was a scrappy, hard-driving, ambitious reporter from Pennsylvania coal country who sought out the most sensational news stories, often going undercover to expose social injustice. Genteel and elegant, Elizabeth Bisland had been born into an aristocratic Southern family, preferred novels and poetry to newspapers, and was widely referred to as the most beautiful woman in metropolitan journalism. Both women, though, were talented writers who had carved out successful careers in the hypercompetitive, male-dominated world of big-city newspapers. Eighty Days brings these trailblazing women to life as they race against time and each other, unaided and alone, ever aware that the slightest delay could mean the difference between victory and defeat. A vivid real-life re-creation of the race and its aftermath, from its frenzied start to the nail-biting dash at its finish, Eighty Days is history with the heart of a great adventure novel. Here’s the journey that takes us behind the walls of Jules Verne’s Amiens estate, into the back alleys of Hong Kong, onto the grounds of a Ceylon tea plantation, through storm-tossed ocean crossings and mountains blocked by snowdrifts twenty feet deep, and to many more unexpected and exotic locales from London to Yokohama.

In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. But one woman hears the tidings with utter dread. Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, knows that the peal of bells she hears will summon her husband once more to power, intrigue, and a passionate love affair with the young queen. Elizabeth´s excited triumph is short-lived. She has inherited a bankrupt country in which treason is normal and foreign war a certainty. Her faithful advisor, William Cecil, warns her that she will survive only if she marries a strong prince to govern the rebellious country. But the one man Elizabeth desires is her childhood friend, the irresistible, ambitious Robert Dudley. Only Robert truly revels in the opportunities of the new reign. He knows he can reclaim his destiny at Elizabeth´s side. Elizabeth cannot resist his courtship, and as the young couple slowly falls in love, Robert starts to think the impossible: could he set aside his wife and marry the young queen? Philippa Gregory paints a portrait of a country on the brink of greatness, a young woman grasping at power, a young man whose ambition is greater than his means, and the wife who cannot forgive them. 1.

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE ? THE EMMY AWARD-WINNING HBO MINISERIES STARRING FRANCES MCDORMAND, RICHARD JENKINS, AND BILL MURRAY In a voice more powerful and compassionate than ever before, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout binds together thirteen rich, luminous narratives into a book with the heft of a novel, through the presence of one larger-than-life, unforgettable character: Olive Kitteridge. At the edge of the continent, Crosby, Maine, may seem like nowhere, but seen through this brilliant writer´s eyes, it´s in essence the whole world, and the lives that are lived there are filled with all of the grand human drama-desire, despair, jealousy, hope, and love. At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town and in the world at large, but she doesn´t always recognize the changes in those around her: a lounge musician haunted by a past romance: a former student who has lost the will to live: Olive´s own adult child, who feels tyrannized by her irrational sensitivities; and Henry, who finds his loyalty to his marriage both a blessing and a curse. As the townspeople grapple with their problems, mild and dire, Olive is brought to a deeper understanding of herself and her life-sometimes painfully, but always with ruthless honesty. Olive Kitteridge offers profound insights into the human condition-its conflicts, its tragedies and joys, and the endurance it requires. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY People ? USA Today ?
