Whether adventure, comedy, action or fantasy, the films of the 80s (late 70s and early 90s included) are simply magical. It doesn’t matter if some have aged better than others, films like The Goonies, Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, Rocky, etc. were created not only for financial gain, but also with tremendous passion, conveying a mystique that is difficult to describe, and which only those who lived through that period can fully appreciate. When We Were Young does not include all of them (that would be impossible), but it does offer a carefully chosen and representative selection. And if you were terrified by the Gremlins, if you learned from Mr. Miyagi, if you cried when little Elliot said goodbye to E.T. or when Thelma & Louise started flying in their convertible, we invite you to embark on this nostalgic tour of superb illustrations and alternative posters by world-class artists, accompanied by curiosities and legendary quotes from the best movies of a wonderful era.

Today, weed is en vogue and has evolved into a good-looking business. High on Design showcases the new brands, designs and creators behind this revolution. While cannabis is a recreational drug still strongly associated with Western subculture, it has recently become a huge industry. Over the past few years, consuming the herb and using its derivatives have become legal in several countries, and a wave of entrepreneurs has come through, looking to generate and bank on a new generation of consumers. Through insightful texts, High on Design reflects on the novel aesthetics, people, and trends of contemporary cannabis culture, and provides a wider view of the phenomenon. Addiction, crime, science, the marketing of weed as a booster of creativity and a medical aid, and the use of hemp in clothing are all considered.

Immerse yourself in the traditions that have defined our cultures and reveal our connection to what make us human. A new generation wants to lead a more meaningful and sustainable life by reconnecting with heritage and traditions. They are looking to the craftsmanship, lifestyle, and unique experiences of the people keeping these practices alive. The New Traditional tells the stories of those devoting their energy, skills, and creativity to crafts such as blacksmithing, distilling spirits, and globe making, and its authors revisit the customs of growing old varieties of apple, beekeeping and producing honey in gardens or on rooftops, and being modern shepherds in Italy or Iceland. They always seek to help preserve cultural traditions and share them with likeminded people.

More than 230 film color processes have been devised in the course of film history, often in connection with photography. Both mediums institutionalized the techniques of hand and stencil coloring as well as toning. Printing methods such as the Pinatype or Technicolor, and screen processes like the Autochrome or Dufaycolor were initially developed in the context of still photography before being used in motion pictures in the 1920s. This publication highlights material aspects of color in photography and film, while also investigating the relationship of historical film colors and present-day photography. Alongside film stills from the likes of Godard and Lynch, works by contemporary photographers and artists―Dunja Evers, Raphael Hefti, Alexandra Navratil and others―reflect on technological and culture-theoretical aspects of the material of color. Thematic clusters focus on aesthetic and technological parallels, including fashion and identity, abstraction and experiment, politics, exoticism and travel.
