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 organizers, 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.

Being a three-time Tour de France winner and a multiple Sports Illustrated Athlete of the Year is only half of the Greg LeMond story. As adept at racing on the cobbles of the spring classics as he was on the mountains of the grand tours, LeMond rode a full racing season from spring to autumn. His never-say-die spirit also bagged him two World Championship titles and a hatful of podiums at the world's toughest bike races. LeMond was a talented all-rounder, with a reputation as one of the canniest racers of his generation. He was admired by his peers and respected by his rivals. But his story took a tragic turn in 1987: While out hunting, he was accidentally shot. He lost so much blood that his life hung in the balance. Yet his recovery was as miraculous as what happened next, when he came back to the world of bicycle racing to claim victory in the Tour de France in the closest finish in history. LeMond: Yellow Jersey Racer presents LeMond's career year by year. Big wins are documented with unique and exclusive photography. Many of the famous protagonists in LeMond's world - rivals, teammates, and friends - contribute extensive interviews, speaking candidly about his career and his continuing legacy in the sport of cycling.

Saddle manufacturer Brooks England have been a British household name and an international cycling icon for 150 years. What continues to motivate and inspire this classic marque? With the help of a variety of writers, artists, journalists, designers, photographers and illustrators, this eclectic compendium of cycling's joys depicts Brooks's unique and idiosyncratic view of the wide-ranging impact of the bicycle and its place in the world, alongside their dedication to function, quality and style. While Brooks is, at its heart, a British company, the team explore the bicycle as a worldwide phenomenon that has connected people - the Tour de France luring professional cyclists of all nationalities to the continental countryside - and continues to provide lone travellers with a gateway to all corners of the earth, celebrating journeys undertaken in some of the planet's most extreme environments, from South America's Atrato Swamp to Siberia. Alongside these ambitious projects, the simple joy of cycling to work, the sense of freedom and adventure afforded to all those who cycle for leisure, and the satisfaction gleaned from crafting the bicycle itself are exalted. The result isn't a book about a saddle maker, but a collection of fascinating contributions from leading creatives from a broad cultural spectrum who are as passionate about their work as they are about their cycling.

40 Years of Cycling Photography represents a lifetime's work for World famous cycling photographer Graham Watson. From Bernard Hinault in the 1970's through to Chris Froome in the 2010's, Watson's photography of the greatest champions and epic races is the most complete cycling archive ever captured by a single photographer. Watson was there when Hinault won his first Tour de France in 1978, and when Miguel Indurain won his fifth Tour in 1995. In recent times, Watson recorded the emergence of a new breed of cycling superstars from Cadel Evans to Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan. Cycling fans will revel in the variety and quality of the images in 40 Years. Sean Kelly's glorious career, as well as other great Classics stars such as Tom Boonen and Fabien Cancellara feature throughout the 300-plus images. Graham Watson began his career photographing aristocracy in London with a heavy old Kodak camera made of wood and glass. He describes the transition from black and white sheet-film, to colour slides, to digital, and finally to direct transmission from the camera in the modern era. Watson has previously authored more than twenty titles, ranging from Visions of Cycling in 1988, 20 Years of Cycling in 2000, Landscapes of Cycling in 2004, and his personal Guide to the Tour de France. In addition, Watson has co-authored coffee-table books with some of the sport's most famous names - Stephen Roche, Miguel Indurain, Sean Kelly, Lance Armstrong and Cadel Evans.

The Art of the Cycling Jersey celebrates the cycling jersey in all its forms. Cycling enthusiast and author Chris Sidwells explores the most important designs in cycling history, as well as the teams, riders, and races where each piece was worn. Organized chronologically, this is the story of the cycling jersey from the first simple garments that early cyclists wore in the 1900s, to the technology-laden jerseys top riders and Tour de France winners wear today. Cycling jerseys represent many different things. For a cyclist they must be functional. For team sponsors they must stand out and increase brand awareness. For cycling fans they help pick out their favorite riders and identify a race or competition leader. Jerseys show who is a world or a national champion, and in some races, jerseys represent a competitor’s nationality. But cycling jerseys have evolved into something bigger. They can evoke good times or bad times, success or failure. Above all, jerseys mark the great occasions of cycling and speak of its history, personalities, and style. With more than 200 color photographs and insightful commentary, The Art of the Cycling Jersey is a great gift and must-have book for any style-conscious, road-racing enthusiast.

A collection of pictures of the movie industry by Magnum photographers. The photographers from the renowned photo agency Magnum have worked with movie-makers since the agency was established half a century ago. Robert Capa, a founding member of what has become the world's most prestigious picture agency, was a close friend of John Huston, with whom he began to combine the talents of great photographers with those of great directors and actors - a tradition that has continued to the present day. These momentous partnerships are properly celebrated for the first time ever in a book that is teeming with powerful images of such legends as Clint Eastwood, Marilyn Monroe, Ingrid Bergman, James Dean, Clark Gable and many others. The roll-call of over 50 leading photographers includes Eve Arnold, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Raymond Depardon, Philippe Halsman, Elliott Erwitt, David 'Chim' Seymour and Dennis Stock. A must-have for photography- and film-lovers alike - from the amateur to the connoiseur - Magnum Cinema embodies the result of a unique assimilation of talent on film: both before and behind the camera.

The Magnum Opus is inspired by the multi-award-winning short film, The Maker. Watch it here: http://bit.ly/WatchTheMaker Synopsis: In a time and world long ago forgotten, there existed an enchanted workshop. Within its walls, a magical creature called a 'Maker' busily created the next of his kin. Upon completion, the creator was whisked away to join the rest of the Maker community. Meanwhile, their progeny was left alone to create the next Maker in a never-ending cycle of creation. That was, until the day an offbeat Maker named Ario was unable to complete 'The Making' and broke their sacred chain of existence. Wracked with guilt, Ario embarked on a quest to right his wrong, but what he discovered was far more monstrous and miraculous than anyone ever imagined.
