The Table that Ran Away to the Woods

“The Table that Ran Away to the Woods” tells the tale of a writing desk that one day ‘grabbed two pairs of shoes/ran downstairs, and took flight’, escaping into the countryside with its owners in barefoot pursuit. This is the first time the story – first published in a Polish newspaper in 1940 and recreated in this exquisite collaged version in 1963 – has been made available to an English-speaking audience. Franciszka and Stefan Themerson were Polish avant-garde artists and filmmakers who arrived as refugees in London, she in 1940, he in 1942, and who continued to work on a huge range of creative projects in England. With her unique illustrations, and his deceptively simple, humorous stories, they created many successful children’s books together. Lovingly republished, this will be an opportunity for a new audience to escape into a book, which, as Wadely says in his introductory note, ‘has all the innocence of a child’s song, as the table dances back to nature, and the liberated typography floats across the page’.

Damien Hirst

Born in Bristol in the UK in 1965, Damien Hirst is one of the most controversial and highly regarded artists of his generation. His wideranging practice, which includes installation, painting, sculpture and drawing, challenges the boundaries between art, science and popular culture. Published to accompany Hirst’s first retrospective exhibition in the UK, staged at Tate Modern during the Olympics in 2012, this book will trace Hirst’s career from his emergence on the art scene in the late 1980s to his present status as one of the best- known artists working today.

With an introduction by curator Ann Gallagher, a new interview by Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate, and essays by curator Andrew Wilson, author and critic Brian Dillon and art historian and critic Thomas Crow, as well as shorter texts on key moments in Hirst’s career by Michael Craig-Martin and Michael Bracewell, this superbly illustrated survey is a fitting tribute to his ground-breaking achievements. Surveying 25 years of the artist’s practice, from young Turk of the British art scene to internationally respected figure, this book makes a major contribution to our understanding and appreciation of one the most significant artists of our time.

Turner, Monet, Twombly: Later Paintings

In 1966 an exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art grabbed the headlines. The artist was an unusual one to find in a modern art gallery: JMW Turner. While that exhibition’s presentation of Turner as an influence on Abstract Expressionism is contentious, it succeeded both in presenting his work in a contemporary context and […]
