Oak Tree, Sunset City, California 1932

Oak Tree, Sunset City, California 1932

The thirty-two Ansel Adams posters published by Little, Brown over the last fifteen years have sold nearly 2 million copies, making the series perhaps the most successful single-artist poster line of all time. Now, to update the series for a new century and a new generation, Little, Brown and The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust have commissioned Pentagram, the renowned international design firm, to create a fresh look for the posters.

The two posters pictured here introduce Pentagram’s beautiful new design. The images are larger and the sans serif typeface lends an elegant simplicity to the overall presentation. In response to requests, sheet sizes have been standardized so that commercially available poster frames can be used. And to highlight the fact that these are the only authorized Ansel Adams posters published, each will feature a striking blind-embossed seal. The one thing that has not changed is the painstaking attention to quality — the superb duotone printing and heavy coated stock that are hallmarks of the series.

Hello, Is This Planet Earth?

Hello, Is This Planet Earth?

The #1 international bestseller: An astronaut’s tour of our planet from the heavens, featuring 150 mesmerizing photographs (with commentary) from the International Space Station.

During his six-month mission to the International Space Station, astronaut Tim Peake became the first British astronaut to complete a spacewalk — and, perhaps more astonishingly, the first to run an entire marathon in space. During his historic mission, he captured hundreds of dazzling photographs, the very best of which are collected here.

Tim captures the majesty of the cosmos and of the planet we call home: breath-taking aerial photos of the world’s cities illuminated at night, the natural beauty of the northern lights, and unforgettable views of oceans, mountains, and deserts.

Tim’s lively stories about life in space appear alongside these photographs, including the tale from which the title is taken: his famous wrong number dialed from space, when he accidentally called a stranger and asked: “Hello, is this planet Earth?”

With this truly unique perspective on the incredible sights of our planet, Tim demonstrates that while in space, hundreds of miles above his friends and family, he never felt closer to home.
Obama: An Intimate Portrait

Obama: An Intimate Portrait

by Pete Souza Foreword by Barack Obama
Relive the extraordinary Presidency of Barack Obama through White House photographer Pete Souza’s behind-the-scenes images and stories in this #1 New York Times bestseller — with a foreword from the President himself.

During Barack Obama’s two terms, Pete Souza was with the President during more crucial moments than anyone else — and he photographed them all. Souza captured nearly two million photographs of President Obama, in moments highly classified and disarmingly candid. Obama: An Intimate Portrait reproduces more than 300 of Souza’s most iconic photographs with fine-art print quality in an oversize collectible format.

Together they document the most consequential hours of the Presidency — including the historic image of President Obama and his advisors in the Situation Room during the bin Laden mission — alongside unguarded moments with the President’s family, his encounters with children, interactions with world leaders and cultural figures, and more.

Souza’s photographs, with the behind-the-scenes captions and stories that accompany them, communicate the pace and power of our nation’s highest office. They also reveal the spirit of the extraordinary man who became our President. We see President Obama lead our nation through monumental challenges, comfort us in calamity and loss, share in hard-won victories, and set a singular example to “be kind and be useful,” as he would instruct his daughters.

This book puts you in the White House with President Obama, and is a treasured record of a landmark era in American history.
