The Meat Free Monday Campaign, launched by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney in 2009, has been a trailblazer and magazines, restaurants, hospitals, colleges, workplaces, celebrities and entire communities have pledged their support. Furthermore, almost every health study published in recent years has proved that eating a more plant-based diet improves body weight, blood pressure and blood sugar and shows that having at least one meat-free day a week is essential for anyone wishing to enjoy a healthy life. The Meat Free Monday Cookbook also proves how simple it is to eat less meat by including irresistible vegetarian menus for every week of the year - two main dishes, plus four other ideas for each meal of the day. Packed with recipes such as Fruity Quinoa, Mexican Cornbread, Warm Halloumi, Apple and Radish Salad, Double Choc Crackle Cookies and Gingerbread Cake, as well as vibrant spring soups, inventive summer salads, appetising autumn bakes and comforting winter stews, it includes contributions from Paul, Mary and Stella, as well as from celebrity and chef supporters, such as Skye Gyngell, Giorgio Locatelli, Yotam Ottolenghi, Kevin Spacey and Vivienne Westwood. It really is the perfect recipe book for anyone who cares about their health, the environment and seriously delicious food. www.meatfreemondays.com @MeatFreeMonday
This is a highly personal selection of photographs amassed by Mary McCartney, oldest child of The Beatles singer Paul McCartney. As the title suggests, it's split into two volumes: one for color and one for black and white images. The book shows McCartney's love for quiet, intimate moments off the beaten track but it also gives an extraordinary behind-the-scenes insight into the lives of celebrities. "I didn't put photos in for it to be a celebrity or non-celebrity," McCartney tells Time. "I am interested in shooting all different types of people. I find a lot of people inspirational. I'm interested in people, in their stories."
In Mary McCartney s largest body of work to date she pays tribute to the extraordinary beauty of a white stallion, Alejandro. These portraits place the horse in the context of the rich, bucolic countryside of Sussex where McCartney grew up. Using a medium-format camera for formal portraits as well as 35mm and smartphone cameras for candid shots, she profiles equestrian life from on and off the saddle. These intimate pictures convey the special relationship between horse and rider and offer a profound insight into the connection that binds people to these majestic animals. The reader is taken through an ever-changing vista of lush green meadows, dappled forest trails, and nighttime forests, often using the unique perspective of rider on horseback to afford us the most compelling views. McCartney s knowledge of the landscape and her unique eye paint a loving and exquisite portrait of a horse and the equestrian lifestyle.
In July 2016, Mary McCartney travelled to Paris for a special photo shoot. Over two days, McCartney would stay with her subject Phyllis Wang at her St Germain apartment and photograph her in the nude. A mixture of black and white and colour, the delicate photographs collected here showcase the intimacy and trust required from both subject and photographer. Over the course of their time together, we see the model increasingly relax in front of the camera as she assumes various poses, and an unspoken bond between the two gradually develops. Moments of humour arise, through Wang's adoption of props, including her collection of hats, and in details that emerge from their candid accounts of the two days - notably an initial misunderstanding about an x-rated shoot - which engagingly annotes the photographs throughout the book. Phyllis Wang is a New York-born stand-up comedian, living and working in Paris. She is known for her eccentric clothing style and love of fashion. The nude photography in the book forms a striking yet complementary contrast to her lively on-stage persona. The book features an essay by Charlotte Jansen, writer and editor-at-large at Elephant Magazine. She is the author of Girl on Girl: Art and Photography in the Age of the Female Gaze. Jansen frames McCartney's photographs through a historical study of the nude in photography and from the perspective of the female gaze.
Bodacious and Miss Ally is set in the year 1950, in a fictitious town in southeast Texas. For decades, great revivals swept across this nation, especially in a large area of the south. This area came to be known as the Bible Belt. There were "churches on every corner," and most of them held at least two revivals each year, some of them in tents. These meetings lasted for two weeks, but were often extended at the request of those attending. People frequented the revivals of other churches, as well as their own. This constant reminder of God's Word and of his will helped keep his children strong. They literally "spake often one to another," and "thought upon his name." Young people, and even children, could be found discussing scriptures and praying together. People tried to carefully follow the rules set down by God in the book he had written for his children. Not everyone who attended the revivals responded positively to them, but multiplied thousands did. I was among this number, as I accepted Christ as Lord of my life in a 1946 summer revival. Our lives were forever changed, and our eternities were joyfully settled in one instant, when we chose to accept God's unspeakable gift-eternal life. I offer you, here, a glimpse into those long ago days, as we see God at work in the lives of Bodacious and Miss Ally.
"From Where I Stand" is photographer Mary McCartney's first book, introducing the very best work spanning her career from the mid-1990s to the present. These images are a reflection not only of Mary's personal world, but also of the unique relationships she establishes with the people she photographs. She constantly seeks to put her subjects at ease, watching and waiting for them to let the camera in rather than imposing any formal ideas of composition or technique. The book is centered around an outstanding collection of portraits, from 50s-inspired rockabillies to Paul and Linda McCartney, Madonna, Bono, Debbie Harry, Elvis Costello, Dennis Hopper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Moss. Here are amazing people, places, and events as seen through Mary's eyes: the intimacy of backstage preparations among the corps de ballet at the Royal Opera House; the raw energy of fashion shows and rock concerts, both on stage and off; the private spaces of home and family; and wittily observed vignettes of visual delight.
Boy meets girl: This eternal and inexhaustible theme is the topic of the Zeiss Art Calendar. Zeiss, the leading manufacturer of optical systems, invites the very best photographers to take part each year. From Wim Wenders in 2009 to Douglas Kirkland in 2015, the photos are as complex and multifaceted as male-female relationships themselves; the lines between romance, drama, and comedy quickly blur. The people in front of the camera are also tops in their fields - actors like Michael J. Fox or Alec Baldwin meet super-models like Amber Valletta or Toni Garrn. They all make this book a diverse collection of imaginative stories told through pictures. Interviews with the participants further enrich the book with a behind-the-scenes look at the project.
Healthy and simple vegetarian recipes to tempt both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike Fresh, inspirational and irresistible, Mary's first cookbook will enthuse readers to bring more meat-free cooking into their repertoires. From Fruit and Nut Granola to Asparagus Tart, Mexican Bean Tortilla to Coconut Rice Pudding, Mary gives us ideas for every meal, from breakfasts to Sunday roasts, and offers new twists on old classics like pancakes, and Shepherd's Pie. using stories and photographs (past and present) to tell her life through food, Mary has created recipes for friends and family that are imaginative and creative. 'McCartney's Food is an intimate peek into the family's kitchen table - the culmination of tried-and-tested recipes cooked by three generations of women' Telegraph Magazine 'This is a jewel of a book - gorgeous recipes that beg to be eaten!' Sophie Dahl
'I see this new cookbook as a personal journey, bringing to life the wonderful memories of those special occasions when family, friends and food mean everything. From celebrations and yearly highlights, to making the most of a simple gathering, I've created a complete range of vegetarian menus to make all these occasions special and, I hope, to create great memories.' There are moments in our lives, and throughout the year, when we come together with our friends and family - and food plays a huge part in turning these moments into something special. Traditionally, many of these occasions call for meat - whether it's roast beef for Sunday Lunch, or burgers at a BBQ - but Mary wants to show us that vegetarian cooking can be just as celebratory and special, and can adapt to any of our demands. She has created an inspiring and approachable selection of food for occasions that range from the festive feasts to the most intimate meal for two, all built around complete menu plans. Each menu has at least four recipes, and is designed to help us plan satisfying and delicious meat-free meals. Her Bonfire Party menu includes One Pot Chilli and Toffee Caramel Apple Wedges; her Middle-Eastern Feast includes Falafels and Nutty Baklava; and Kids Tea has Alphabet Soup and Mac 'n' Cheese. With stunning photography - including family pictures from both past and present - At My Table is about food that brings people together, food that we share with those we love and becomes part of our memories.
