Game of Thrones: George R.R. Martin Debunks ‘Absurd’ Book Rumor

George R.R. Martin has shot down a suggestion that he has completed the final two books in the Song of Ice and Fire saga and has been withholding them until HBO’s Game of Thrones concludes.

According to Entertainment Weekly, several media reports have quoted actor Ian McElhinney, who played Ser Berristan Selmy in Game of Thrones up until season 5 in 2015, talking at a fan convention about the as-yet-unreleased books. “George has already written Books 6 and 7, and as far as he’s concerned there only are seven books,” he allegedly said. “But he struck an agreement with David and Dan, the showrunners on the series, that he would not publish the final two books until the series has completed.”

Alexi Lubomirski to Publish Children’s Book, Collaborate With Movado

ALEXI SAYS THANKS — A LOT: Droves of people know Alexi Lubomirski as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding photographer, but as of late more are learning about the lensman’s numerous socially conscious pursuits.
On May 7, Lubomirski will launch a new children’s book, “Thank You For My Dreams,” which is meant to teach children about gratitude, with all proceeds benefiting the charity Concern Worldwide. Consciously saying thank you was something he started in his twenties. “I became aware that whenever I felt down, sad, or angry about something (especially angry), I could feel the anger manifesting in my chest and stomach. So I mentally said a prayer of thanks in an attempt to change my demeanor, and after a minute of concentrating on something I was grateful for, I very quickly noticed the physical changes in my body. Even though the initial problem still remained, I felt calmer and better equipped to deal with it,” he said.
Fifteen years later, the married father of two young sons is still at it and has taught his children the exercise. He wrote in the book’s introduction, “I mentally say (pray) ‘thank you’ for the things in my life, such as my health, my

William Middleton Strikes Deal With HarperCollins for Karl Lagerfeld Book

Well, that didn’t take long.
William Middleton, a former Paris bureau chief of WWD and W magazine, just signed a book deal with HarperCollins to write “an unconventional biography” of Karl Lagerfeld and how he turned himself into a cultural icon. Lagerfeld died Feb. 19.
Middleton, who met Lagerfeld in 1995, did many stories with him when he worked in Paris and developed a friendship along the way.  Middleton is the author of “Double Vision,” about the powerful art-world family headed by Dominique and John de Menil that was published last spring.
Middleton said he had proposed a book to Lagerfeld about a year ago, and the designer was not interested in delving into his past. “I don’t think the history of Karl is the most interesting part. There are some elements of his past that are interesting. But it’s really what he turned himself into that’s so fascinating. I didn’t want to do a normal biography,” he said.
Immediately after Lagerfeld died, Middleton wrote a three-page proposal and e-mailed his agent, Binky Urban at ICM. “By 9 a.m., she had me on the phone [with HarperCollins vice president and executive editor Sara Nelson] and we had a contract the next week. It all

Browns Hosts Dinner to Mark Fantastic Man’s Book About Men’s Dressing

LIGHT FANTASTIC: What’s the opposite of hi-tech? The new book by Fantastic Man magazine, “What Men Wear and Why.” A soft cover printed on recycled paper, it includes lots of charming interviews with men about how they dress themselves every day. The interviews are long — no social media-sized commentary here — and, crucially, there are no illustrations or images. Readers — refreshingly — are forced to use their mind’s eye.
Browns hosted a cocktail and dinner on Saturday night during Paris Men’s Fashion Week to mark the book’s publication, and its collaboration with Fantastic Man. The retailer has given over the windows of its store on South Molton Street to different quotes and themes from the book.

Yves Saint Laurent Illustrations for Children’s Book Up for Auction

THE DEVIL IN PARIS: Parisian auction house Cornette de Saint Cyr is holding an auction on Dec. 19 of 100 drawings by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
The pictures, drawn by Saint Laurent between 1961 and 1962, were destined to illustrate a children’s book commissioned by Parisian publisher Jacques Damase, but the project never came through. This is the first time the drawings are being unveiled to the public.
Named “Le Diable à Paris” (“The Devil in Paris”), the book, written by Damase, features a dapper-looking devil, drawn by Saint Laurent, wearing a red suit and little black horns on the cover illustration.
Other drawings see the devil dress up to visit a duchess, sport a leopard-printed suit and even a bull’s head in an illustration titled “Le Diable Espagnol” (“The Spanish Devil”), where he is pictured alongside a flamenco dancer.
Drawn in ink, pastel or graphite in mostly red and black hues, the title character is faced with an array of magical creatures, such as a giraffe in the shape of the Eiffel Tower or a human body with a dragon’s head.
A statement from the auction house explained Damase met Saint Laurent through accessories designer Roger Vivier. At the time of the project, the

SLICE OF HISTORY: Gucci’s interest in the arts shows no sign of slowing.
The Italian fashion house and its creative director Alessandro Michele have teamed with Rome’s MAXXI, the Museum of the Arts for the 21st Century, on the publication of the book “Paolo Di Paolo. Mondo Perduto [Lost World]. Photographs 1954-1968” gathering more than 300 works the Rome-based photographer took between 1954 and 1968.
Born in Italy’s central region of Molise, Di Paolo moved to Rome at an early age and soon became one of the great reportage photographers who documented the country as it emerged from World War II for the now-defunct Il Mondo weekly magazine and for personal projects. Taken with his compact Leica III C camera, Di Paolo captured black-and-white portraits of key personalities in the country’s art, culture, fashion and movie sectors They include writer Pier Paolo Pasolini on the outskirts of Rome; the encounter between actress Gina Lollobrigida and artist Giorgio de Chirico; Anna Magnani sunbathing in her villa outside Rome, as well as Brigitte Bardot, Federico Fellini, Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni, to name a few.

Dauphin Publishes New Book With Paolo Roversi

Place Vendôme jeweler Dauphin will release a book in collaboration with photographer Paolo Roversi.
The tome marks Dauphin’s fifth anniversary, and is the first publication of its kind for the company. It features models Saskia De Brauw and Guinevere Van Seenus alongside Roversi’s daughter, Stella Roversi. Images were styled by Hannes Hetta, featuring hair and makeup devised by Julien D’Ys.
Dauphin’s artistic director and designer Charlotte Dauphin de la Rochefoucauld said of the book: “The last five years have been crucial in characterizing and refining Dauphin’s aesthetics to offer an alternative vision. Paolo Roversi’s contribution has been a key element to forge the house’s image. It is therefore a natural progression to celebrate this milestone with a publication, both as an exploration of the house’s archives and a reflection on the evolution of my work for Dauphin.”
Roversi noted that: “”By photographing Charlotte Dauphin’s creations, you will discover new lights, unsuspected magical reflections, splendors of a different and mysterious elegance.”
Dauphin de la Rochefoucauld concurred, noting: “The book is also a place where Paolo and I can share our artistic conversation. Paolo draws with light and movement, there is a beautiful suspension in time in his work and I feel that it is in this

LIVING IT UP: “I didn’t want a retrospective or a museum show. That can all happen when I’m dead,” said a vibrant Roland Mouret, who’s set to release his first book “Provoke, Attract, Seduce” on Nov. 6 (Rizzoli).
“Twenty years have gone by. I just wanted to consider what I’ve done, look at the clothes again and try to understand them — and my creative DNA,” said the designer from his town house, showroom and shop on Carlos Place in Mayfair.
The coffee-table book was created with Mouret’s longtime collaborator, Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, the fashion stylist and editor of 10 Magazine, and the writer Alex Fury. In it, Mouret talks about his childhood growing up in Lourdes, France, as a butcher’s son, his early career as a model and move into fashion design, his love of women’s bodies and approach to design.
He looked into his archives and reshot all of the old looks as if they were new, working with photographers including Vanina Sorrenti, Alessio Bolzoni and Cedric Buchet. There are images of his pre-collections in there, too, along with arty collages by Brian Burn and a shoot called “Butcher’s Apron” by Tierney Gearon.

Louis Vuitton Launches Kishin Shinoyama Book in Tokyo

TOKYO — Louis Vuitton added five new titles to its “Fashion Eye” series of photo books this fall. On Thursday, the brand held a launch event at its Roppongi Hills store to commemorate the tome “Silk Road” by Kishin Shinoyama. The famed photographer is the first Japanese person to be selected as a part of the series.
The images in the book were originally published between 1981 and 1982 in eight separate volumes that included more than 1,200 photos. For the Vuitton edition, editor Patrick Remy cut this down to nearly 300, which was still far more than the roughly 70 to 80 shots that appear in the other Fashion Eye titles. So in order to keep the thickness of the book equal to that of the others in the series, the decision was made to use an extremely thin paper. Editorial director Julien Guerrier said it was a challenge to find a paper and printing method that would work without transparency issues, but eventually a solution was reached.
“It’s actually very fitting that you have this silk-like paper for a book on the Silk Road,” Guerrier said.
Shinoyama signed copies of the book and gave a short presentation at the event

Rankin Marks Thirty Years of Snapping with Rizzoli Book, Unfashionable

THE BIG 3-0: “It was a mammoth task and it felt pretty impossible to get down to just 324 pages,” said the photographer Rankin of his 30th anniversary book, Unfashionable. “At one point if we had printed the edit, it would have been around 3,000 pages.”
The book, which is published on Tuesday in the U.K. and next month in the U.S., has been published by Rizzoli. It details Rankin’s career-defining moments, gives insights into his photographic process and nods to his longtime collaborators and contributors including Katie Grand, who wrote the foreword and Jefferson Hack, who penned the afterword.
There is also an In Conversation feature with Kate Moss. He said of all three: “They have been the most influential to my career and without them I have no idea what I’d be doing today.”
Unfashionable opens with Rankin’s most recent images, including a provocative portrait of an elderly female model wearing see-through lingerie and a shot of Bella Hadid for the Love Magazine Advent Calendar.
It works its way backward through time and features photographs of Nineties club kids and famous faces such as Heidi Klum and Helena Christensen. There is also early black and white portrait photography from the Eighties and Nineties.

GTA 5 Has Made More Money Than Any Film, Book or Game, Says Analyst

Industry analyst Doug Creutz says Grand Theft Auto 5 has made money than any other form of media in history, with over 90 million units sold and $ 6 billion in revenue.

Creutz, managing director and senior research analyst covering the media and entertainment sector at Cowen, told MarketWatch that the game has made more than blockbuster movies like Star Wars, and Gone With The Wind, which both brought in around $ 3 billion in theaters when adjusted for inflation. Creutz estimates that even with home entertainment sales, which he puts in the ballpark of $ 1 billion, the films don’t come close to Rockstar’s 2013 title.

Kenneth Ning Produces Film, Look Book Instead of Show

Add Kenneth Ning to the list of designers who have eschewed runway shows this season.
The New York-based designer, who launched his collection in 2015, has partnered with multimedia artist Patrick Welde and art director Anthony Stephinson to showcase his fall collection.
Ning handed over his completed line to the two men, and they returned “The Twisted System,” a look book and short film that was shot over several days in Paris.
“It was time for me to take a new presentation direction with my collection,” said Ning. “The influencer has grown to huge importance with retailers and consumers. Patrick has a great eye and the past client experience I am looking for in shaping my brand to a more international retailer and consumer.”
Ning’s fall collection blends streetwear and tailoring with pieces that provide what he described as “a twisted dream state,” consisting of  unusual proportions and fabrics that range from flannel tartans to plaids.
Welde is part of the growing Parisian avant-garde scene and has worked with brands and publications including Balenciaga and Antidote Magazine.

BOOK SIGNING: “There’s a slight familiarity with Gingernutz — she’s me,” said Grace Coddington at the London book signing of “GingerNutz: The Jungle Memoir of a Model Orangutan” on Thursday evening.
Held at the Smythson store on New Bond Street, British designers including Erdem Moralioğlu, E. Tautz owner and creative director Patrick Grant and Stephen Jones were among the guests who turned up to show support.
Coddington recalled the first time she encountered the main character — illustrated by longtime friend Michael Roberts — and thought she was so cute. Roberts had drawn a series of illustrations from the point of view of a baby orangutan and depicted the little ape’s journey navigating the fashion world. Alongside her book, Coddington will also be contributing to the December issue of British Vogue.
“I have already contributed,” Coddington said. “And I can’t wait for it to come out. I’ve only done one and it’s at the early stages. Edward [Enninful] loved it and that’s the main thing. I loved it. I’m very happy with it. It’s a surprise.”

I’m just going to paint on the Valentino book.’ So I just started painting on the covers, put my name on it, but it said Valentino on the side, so I put the hashtag, ‘Kiss My Assouline’.
