Laurence King Fall 2020

Dear Bookseller,
Our list this Fall is the largest and, I believe, much the strongest that we
have ever published. In each area, it builds on recent successes, but it is also our
most inventive list, reaching into almost every sector of the market.
We launch a new series on modern and contemporary artists, Art File,
with a book by Jonathan Jones on Tracey Emin. The series of beautiful, small gift
biographies, Lives of the Artists, continues with Frida Kahlo, another very popular
woman artist.
This theme is continued in The Short Story of Women Artists, a brilliantly
synoptic account of how women have changed the course of art by engaging with
the female condition. Our fascination with the macabre is explored in a number of
books including Anatomica: The Exquisite and Unsettling Art of Human Anatomy,
which shows through illustration the growing understanding of the workings of the
human body from the Renaissance onwards.
Our Photography list is extended with a book full of visual wit, The Art of
Getting Lucky: How to Think Like a Street Photographer, and the Film list with This is
How You Make a Movie, which deconstructs the techniques of the great directors in
a book that will appeal to both students and film enthusiasts. 100 Things to Do in a
Forest and How to Grow your Dinner Without Leaving the House touch in a light and
engaging way on powerful themes in contemporary life. Night Vision: A Field Guide
to Your Dreams is a particularly beautifully illustrated, but informative, book that
makes a perfect present to a friend or indeed yourself.
In the Children’s list, Marion Deuchars has revived her series of brilliant
activity books with two more––Let’s Make Some Great Art: Animals and Patterns.
Einstein’s Theory of Relativity is the first book in an ambitious series: Words that
Changed the World. The History of Everything in 32 Pages is just that. From Big Bang,
through the creation of the solar system and life on earth, to the human story, it
provides a humanist creation myth.
The Gift list is as inventive as ever with a large number of new formats,
such as Wild Bunch, a reinvention of the Crazy Eights game, using animals instead
of numbers. We have followed the huge success of Tattoo Tarot, with Movie Tarot,
which shows how film stars’ greatest roles fit perfectly into Tarot archetypes. Poop
Bingo takes one of the most popular gifts of 2019, Who Did This Poop?, into the
bestselling bingo series.
Last, we are reissuing as a small gift book Virginia Woolf’s How Should One
Read a Book? which answers a question that must be fundamental to every book
buyer and reader.

Areca Palm, Betel-nut Palm

Areca catechu

T he areca palm looks impossibly slender for a tree that can grow
to 30 metres (100 feet) tall, and the horizontal bands that often
characterize its trunk – the vestiges of fallen fronds – give it the
appearance of a tower of stacked discs. Deep-orange fruit in extravagant
bunches each yield a seed the size of a large nutmeg and similarly marbled
throughout. It is these ‘nuts’ – and the recreational drugs they contain –
for which areca is cultivated in plantations from India across tropical Asia
to Fiji. The world’s annual production of areca nuts is more than a million
tons; India produces, and consumes, about two-thirds of that.
Areca’s flavour is reminiscent of citronella and clove, with notes of
carbolic antiseptic, while a generous dash of tannin adds a mouth-puckering
finish. However, the taste is secondary. Areca contains arecoline and other
alkaloid drugs that are absorbed readily through the lining of the mouth
when the nut is chewed. The effects are mild euphoria, heightened alertness
and a relaxing warmth. Across Asia, areca is consumed daily by several
hundred million people, mostly as a social lubricant, often as a digestive to
counteract postprandial lethargy and habitually, if disturbingly, by long-
distance lorry-drivers.
Areca is sold by specialist street vendors, known in India as paanwallahs.
They wrap areca shavings in the heart-shaped leaves of the betel vine
(Piper betle), adding a dab of slaked lime, which is extracted from ash and
makes the mixture alkaline to help release the drugs. Seated behind trays
of intriguing pots and potions, paanwallahs will gladly offer suggestions of
flavourings such as cardamom, cinnamon, camphor or tobacco, along with
congenial conversation. A packet or ‘quid’ of paan turns vermilion as it is
chewed, and promotes copious saliva, to be ejected, never swallowed. This
produces a marvellously clean feeling in the mouth but also pavements
stained with blood-red gobs: it could only ever be a custom of outdoor
cultures. In the days before lipstick, areca was used to stain lips seductively
red, but chewing it also darkens and eventually blackens the teeth. Tastes
change; in nineteenth-century Siam (now Thailand) darkened teeth were so
desirable that sets of dentures were reportedly made in black. Although still
increasing in India, the use of areca is levelling off elsewhere, partly because
of its association with various cancers and partly (and ironically) because it
is being replaced by tobacco, which is more aggressively marketed.

Fridamania has made Frida Kahlo’s image ubiquitous:
she has been reborn as a Halloween costume,
Barbie doll, children’s book character, textile print,
phone cover, and the inspiration for everything from
cocktails to fashion shoots. But it is more difficult
to get a clear vision of this bold and brilliant, foul-
mouthed, heavy-drinking, hard-smoking, husband-
stealing, occasionally bisexual, often bed-bound,
wheelchair-using, needy, forthright, and passionate
woman. Hettie Judah sets out to correct that with
this superb biography of one of the most charismatic
artists of the last 100 years.

Shelter Building
It is possible to build a shelter strong and weatherproof enough
to camp out in for a night, but the likelihood of anyone doing
this in the age of pop-up tents is very small. Instead, how about
making a temporary shelter for when it unexpectedly starts to
rain, a shelter to block the wind or sun, or a shelter to eat lunch
in, just for the fun of it?

No matter what design you’re going for:

• Choose a spot with plenty of fallen branches and leaf-bearing twigs.
Don’t ever chop down branches to build your shelter. (An exception to
this would be if you were lost in the jungle and you were going to die
without a shelter, at which point damaging a tree would probably be
the least of your concerns.)
• Don’t build near a stream or spring. Having picked a lovely spot and
built a beautiful shelter, sometimes it becomes clear only too late that
your site is actually a burbling spring or that the waters will rapidly rise

to flood you out.
• Take advantage of a forked branch by interlocking it with other
branches to provide stability in the wind, and as you criss-cross your
branches you’ll end up with a grid on which you can balance leaves.
• Criss-cross branches with dead leaves attached over one another to
make little roof tiles for keeping rain off and as a bit of insulation
from the cold. Wild Swimming
• Keep your walls angled for maximum wind and rain resistance.
• If building downwind, put the strongest shelter wall between you and Going swimming in a wild and natural spot is not only food for

can swim. Don’t ever drink the water, however tempting that might be,
because bacteria abound in every mouthful of river water. It’s also a
good idea to drink a can of Coke after any wild swimming, since the
harsh chemicals in it will help to destroy any bugs that have found their
way into your tummy. If you see a blue-green algae clumped on the
surface of the water, don’t swim – it can cause an itchy rash that lasts for
a couple of days. Lastly, never dive head first when swimming in wild
spots; water depths vary and cannot be ascertained by looking down
from above. You’ll find the safest wild swimming spots detailed online
with information about currents, depths and bacteria all provided by a
raft of enthusiasts and experts.
Wild swimming, particularly in your undies, can create merriment on
even the dullest of days. Rivers, lakes and streams all provide their own
unique experiences, so whether you’re paddling up to your ankles
or jumping right in, don’t pass up an opportunity to pop into the water.

Mono-ha, usually translated as ‘school of things’, was
a movement in mid-1960s Japanese and Korean art
that valued the dialogue between organic and artificial
materials, which were treated simply and placed in
subtle and sensitive installations. Mono-ha works of
art used natural objects like rocks, soil and water, often
juxtaposed with sheets of steel or glass. The effect is
minimal in aesthetic and contemplative in tone. These
were works that stood apart from the international
art market: mono-ha works were often ephemeral and
depended on the viewer’s experience with the objects
in space.
Art Styles
The Bauhaus was one of the most celebrated and
influential art schools in history. Based in a number
of German cities – Weimar, then Dessau, then Berlin –
the Bauhaus took a radical approach to art education,
fusing fine art with crafts, design and architecture.
Its aesthetic was generally stripped-down, geometric
and industrial. The Bauhaus was founded between
the two world wars and was finally shut down by the
Nazis in 1933, whereupon many of its most influential
members fled to other countries, where their influence
spread. Perhaps most notable is its influence in the
United States, where Bauhaus émigrés permanently
transformed American architecture.

Possible Worlds
Dr Pangloss, a fictional character in Voltaire’s satirical
novella Candide, keeps reassuring everybody around
him that, despite numerous calamities that befall them,
they all live in ‘the best of all possible worlds’. Pangloss is
a thinly veiled parody of Voltaire’s fellow Enlightenment
philosopher Gottfried Leibniz, who made a rational
argument in favour of our world, although not perfect,
having to be the best that could have been created. In
recent philosophy, the idea of possible worlds is used
in modal logic to explore metaphysical possibility. Saul
Kripke says that ‘modal facts’ are facts about possible
worlds, where our actual world is only one among
many worlds that are possible. Each possible world
is described by a consistent set of statements. So, the

statement ‘It is possible for me to become a prima

life by explaining the terms and processes through
the films you know and love. Using key scenes
from some of the best-loved movies of all time,
Tim Grierson explores everything from cinematography
to the secrets of talking to camera. Deep focus is
explored through Citizen Kane, forced perspective
through Elf, and slow motion through Reservoir
Dogs. A fascinating read for film buffs who want
to understand what goes on behind the camera,
and above all an essential read for students and
beginners in the industry.

Directing Depth of Field

Editing Crosscutting

Depth of Field
Strategizing how much of the frame
you want in focus

When a filmmaker is determining the depth of field in a shot, she’s not

just thinking about what she wants in focus, but why. The easiest way
to describe “depth of field” is that it’s a measurement of the area of
the frame in which objects are in focus. So, for instance, a shot with
shallow depth of field has very little focus area in it (in these shots,
the principal subject is in focus, but everything in front of and behind
him would be blurry). The greater depth of field, the wider the focus
area is. (On a technical level, the greater your lens’s aperture, the more
your depth of field will shrink. Likewise, a longer lens will diminish your
depth of field.)
These camera adjustments might not seem that important: After all,
as long as your main character can be seen easily, what does it matter
what happens in the background? Let’s see how depth of field can add
drama to a scene. Alienation The Oscar-winning Moonlight is the story of a young, gay black man strug-

Fire-breathing monster that’s part lion,
part goat and part serpent

One of the deadliest monsters of Greek mythology, the Chimaera

was a giant, fire-breathing beast. She had the head and body of a lion,
a goat’s head on her back and a venomous snake for a tail.

The Chimaera was said to live in the mountainous land

of Lycia, where she terrorized the whole country, destroying villages
and farms with her fiery breath. To see her, even if you were
lucky enough to survive the encounter, was an omen that a
disaster, such as a killer volcanic eruption, was coming.

Many heroes tried to kill this formidable creature, but

it seemed an impossible task. As soon as they came close
enough to attack her, she killed them with a jet of flame.

However, in one story, King Iobates of Lycia asked the hero

Bellerophon to get rid of the Chimaera for him. To help Bellerophon,
the goddess Athena agreed that Pegasus, the winged horse
of the gods, could carry him to Lycia.

Bellerophon prepared for the attack by fixing a lump

of lead to the tip of his spear. He flew high above
the monster on Pegasus’s back, so that the flames
could not reach him, and took aim. He hurled
the spear at the Chimaera’s gaping mouth.
As it plunged into her throat, her breath
melted the lead, choking her to death.

What was known in Einstein's day?
What time is it, right now? To answer this simple question, you might just look at your watch.
But that would only tell you the time where you are. It wouldn’t tell you what time it is on the other side of
the world. So, what time is it, right now? And what does that question actually mean?

In his book, the Principia, Isaac Newton wrote: “Absolute,
true, and mathematical time … flows equably without
relation to anything external.”

When Newton was coming up with his three laws

in 1687, he assumed that the universe had its own
ultimate time that ticked away in the background
no matter where you were.
So, according to Newton, if you synchronised two
clocks and used them to measure a single event while
one clock was standing still and the other was moving,
the two clocks would show the same time.

What we humans can actually experience, though, Newton

called “relative, apparent and common time”.

Newton thought that we experienced time passing

because of the movement of objects that we could
see such as the sun crossing the sky and the
ticking of clocks. But Newton wasn't quite right… In the 1840s, Standardised Time was introduced in
the UK by railway companies (it was even called
Railway Time) to help people plan their journeys
