Author: Alain Ducasse, Rosie Birkett
London is home to a multitude of international cuisines and some of the world's best restaurants. Following the success of J'aime Paris and J'aime New York, Alain Ducasse compiles a list of his favourite eating haunts in England's capital, including restaurants, caf s, bars, markets, hotels and food specialists. He offers an invaluable list of places to visit alongside sumptuous photography. Glimpse the luxurious interiors of Balthazar, Keith McNally's Parisian-style brasserie in the heart of Covent Garden, or the elegant Georgian townhouse, York and Albany, that is Gordon Ramsay's ambitious venture in Regent's Park. Take note of Ducasse's recommendations for visiting Maltby Street Market - this is the place to come for pastrami-packed reuben sandwiches at Monty's Deli or a custard doughnut from the St. John Bakery. Read about the origins of La Fromagerie, London's bestloved cheese shop, which houses an on-site maturing cellar, pungent walk-in cheese room, delis and caf . Covering seasonal hotspots, multicultural restaurants, classic London destinations and the best suppliers in the city, J'aime London is an invitation to discover the culinary offerings of the capital.

The Female Nude
Author: Lynda Nead
Anyone who examines the history of Western art must be struck by the prevalence of images of the female body. More than any other subject, the female nude connotes `art'. The framed image of a female body, hung on the walls of an art gallery, is an icon of Western culture, a symbol of civilization and accomplishment. But how and why did the female nude acquire this status? The Female Nude brings together, in an entirely new way, analysis of the historical tradition of the female nude and discussion of recent feminist art, and by exploring the ways in which acceptable and unacceptable images of the female body are produced and maintained, renews recent debates on high culture and pornography. The Female Nude represents the first feminist survey of the most significant subject in Western art. It reveals how the female nude is now both at the centre and at the margins of high culture. At the centre, and within art historical discourse, the female nude is seen as the visual culmination of enlightenment aesthetics; at the edge, it risks losing its repectability and spilling over into the obscene.
