Fritz the Cat est sans conteste le personnage le plus célèbre de Robert Crumb, mais sa renommée repose sur une équivoque. La plupart des gens ne connaissent en effet Fritz que comme le héros du dessin animé que le réalisateur Ralph Bakshi a sorti en 1972, d'après les bandes dessinées de Crumb publiées quelques années plus tôt. Premier dessin animé classé X, le long-métrage de Bakshi a connu un tel succès commercial qu'il a durablement tordu la perception que l'on peut avoir du matou original, celui que Crumb dessinait depuis l'adolescence pour son propre plaisir. Le présent volume rétablit la véritable identité de Fritz, tel que l'a dessiné Crumb : de sa première apparition publique en 1965 dans le magazine Help ! à sa mort violente en 1972 (réponse au film de Bakshi), on le découvre étudiant glandeur, obsédé sexuel, révolutionnaire à-la-mie-de-pain, simili James Bond outrancièrement macho et raciste, héroïnomane en pleine déchéance, star vieillissante et cynique, c'est-à-dire l'antithèse des beautiful people du mouvement hippie d'alors... Faussement cool et vaguement ringard, Fritz synthétise la vision acérée que Crumb avait à l'époque des gens de sa génération. Inspiré, dans son graphisme contrasté et son découpage fluide, par les strips des classiques de la bande dessinée d'humour américaine des années 1920 et 30, Crumb, quand il dessine Fritz, se fait chroniqueur acerbe, à la manière de ses maîtres en satire Harvey Kurtzman et Jules Feiffer.
"Never mind what I'll do with it," Crump said. He reached into his pocket and drew out three dollars. "Here." He gave the money to Bac, who stuffed it into his shirt pocket and handed Crump the banana-cat, collar, cord and all.

In 1911 the French publisher Lucien Vogel challenged Edward Steichen to create the first artistic, rather than merely documentary, fashion photographs, a moment that is now considered to be a turning point in the history of fashion photography. As fashion changed over the next century, so did the photography of fashion. Steichen’s modernist approach was forthright and visually arresting. In the 1930s the photographer Martin Munkácsi pioneered a gritty, photojournalistic style. In the 1960s Richard Avedon encouraged his models to express their personalities by smiling and laughing, which had often been discouraged previously. Helmut Newton brought an explosion of sexuality into fashion images and turned the tables on traditional gender stereotypes in the 1970s, and in the 1980s Bruce Weber and Herb Ritts made male sexuality an important part of fashion photography. Today, following the integration of digital technology, teams like Inez & Vinoodh and Mert & Marcus are reshaping our notion of what is acceptable—not just aesthetically but also technically and conceptually—in a fashion photograph. This lavishly illustrated survey of one hundred years of fashion photography updates and reevaluates this history in five chronological chapters by experts in photography and fashion history. It includes more than three hundred photographs by the genre’s most famous practitioners as well as important but lesser-known figures, alongside a selection of costumes, fashion illustrations, magazine covers, and advertisements.

From Kiese Laymon, author of the critically acclaimed memoir Heavy, comes a “funny, astute, searching” (The Wall Street Journal) debut novel about Black teenagers that is a satirical exploration of celebrity, authorship, violence, religion, and coming of age in post-Katrina Mississippi. Written in a voice that’s alternately humorous, lacerating, and wise, Long Division features two interwoven stories. In the first, it’s 2013: after an on-stage meltdown during a nationally televised quiz contest, fourteen-year-old Citoyen “City” Coldson becomes an overnight YouTube celebrity. The next day, he’s sent to stay with his grandmother in the small coastal community of Melahatchie, where a young girl named Baize Shephard has recently disappeared. Before leaving, City is given a strange book without an author called Long Division. He learns that one of the book’s main characters is also named City Coldson—but Long Division is set in 1985. This 1985-version of City, along with his friend and love interest, Shalaya Crump, discovers a way to travel into the future, and steals a laptop and cellphone from an orphaned teenage rapper called...Baize Shephard. They ultimately take these items with them all the way back to 1964, to help another time-traveler they meet to protect his family from the Ku Klux Klan. City’s two stories ultimately converge in the work shed behind his grandmother’s house, where he discovers the key to Baize’s disappearance. Brilliantly “skewering the disingenuous masquerade of institutional racism” (Publishers Weekly), this dreamlike “smart, funny, and sharp” (Jesmyn Ward), novel shows the work that young Black Americans must do, while living under the shadow of a history “that they only gropingly understand and must try to fill in for themselves” (The Wall Street Journal).

A legend. A warrior. A hero. A classic American epic. Two centuries ago, with the support of the young Revolutionary government, George Rogers Clark led a small but fierce army west from Virginia to conquer all the territory between the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. He battled the British, forged friendships with French and Spanish settlers, and made treaties with many Indian tribes who revered the lanky, red-haired white man and called him Long Knife. He fell in love with the woman of his dreams, the beautiful Spanish maiden Teresa de Leyba. And George Rogers Clark was, in the end, bitterly betrayed by the same government he had so nobly served. Rich in the heroic characters, meticulously researched detail, and grand scale that have become James Alexander Thom’s trademarks, Long Knife, his first historical epic, is simply unforgettable.

The walled - and very private - village of Greendale is not all that it appears to be from the outside. Superficially it embodies all that is quaint and desirable in the English country way of life. Within it is concealed an exclusive language academy catering for wealthy foreigners. This curious institution purports to teach 'perfect' English - with a 100 % success rate - and successful graduation holds out the promise of integration into the English upper crust. Everything seems light and amusing at the onset, and the latest electronic technology is regarded just as fun by the new intake of students. But gradually the gadgetry grows more and more intrusive into their private lives and it emerges that both the teaching staff and the 'villagers' are more eccentric than either the students or the naive new teacher Adrian have bargained for. Trying to enter the village under false pretences can lead to unpleasant consequences, but when students try to escape things can grow nasty indeed...
