BIG TIME - THE LIFE OF ADAM FAITH
By DAVID STAFFORD - CAROLINE STAFFORD
Most pop stars' fame used to end with their 25th birthday, but Adam Faith just kept on being interesting until the day he died aged 62. Born Terry Nelhams in working-class Acton, he defined post-war aspiration. Though his vocal talents were limited, he enjoyed an unprecedented run of seven top five hits. His chiselled features were a gift to TV (then a new medium), fans swooned each time he smiled, heavyweight journalists saw him as the 'Spokesman for British Youth' and his sexual adventures were the stuff of legend.

LENNON ON LENNON
By ED: JEFF BURGER
John Lennon on John Lennon is an annotated, fact-checked, chronologically arranged anthology of some of Lennon s most illuminating and representative interviews. Interspersed throughout the book, also, are key quotes from dozens of additional Q&As. Together, this material paints a revealing picture of the artist in his own words. It also suggests some of the directions his life might have taken if it hadn't been cut short. And it offers a window into the late 1960s and 70s, which, as these interviews make clear, was a very different time in America and the world.

LED ZEPPELIN ON LED ZEPPELIN
By HANK BORODOWITZ
In a series of more than 50 interviews that span seven decades, many never before seen in print, this is the story of Led Zeppelin told by the people who knew it best the members of the band. This book shoots down the folklore and assumptions about Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham, and presents the band's full history, from when Jimmy Page was playing skiffle to the day the band was honoured by the Kennedy Center for their contribution to American and global culture. Led Zeppelin on Led Zeppelin captures the ideas of all of the band's members at the time they created classics like "Whole Lot of Love," "Stairway to Heaven," and "Kashmir," but also captures the idea of the band itself as it created the music that changed popular culture.

HOLY ROCK AND ROLLERS - KINGS OF LEON
By JOEL McIVER
The Kings of Leon came from America's Deep South in 2003 and made an impact on the British music scene that was more immediate and long-lasting than any other new band in years. They embarked on a sex, drug and booze fueled rampage through the London music and fashion scene, never afraid to reveal all to the press and somehow surviving to tell the tale. An updated edition covers the release of the Kings' 2010 album Come Around Sundown, the extensive dates which followed the release and the band's documentary Talihina Sky. Theirs is a unique tale, from their youth as touring musicians in their preacher father's church to their discovery by the American music industry and beyond.

DEAD STRAIGHT GUIDE TO VELVET UNDERGROUND
By PETER HOGAN
The Velvet Underground were one of the most influential bands in rock sowing the seeds for punk, grunge and thousands of counter cultural four-chord wonders. Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison and Moe Tucker mixed arty experimentation with primal rock’n’roll. Joined by the ice queen singer Nico and infamously managed by Andy Warhol, the Velvets brought the hip decadence of Sixties New York to the world.

With the Guns 1914 - 1918: An Subaltern's Story
By Stanley Foxall
Acquired at a local Cheshire auction house, several personal albums of World War 1 photographs taken by their previous gentleman owner, an officer in the Royal Field Artillery (RFA) called Harold Cooper Bebington. He was also a member of one of the early amateur photographic societies at his home town, hence explaining their excellent quality and his interest in taking them, although possibly against King's Regulations! They relate to his training as an officer cadet initially from 1916 in England, working with horses and field gun limbers, his commissioning, and subsequent hospitalisation in England after wounding on the Western Front. Afterwards he was posted to the then new anti-aircraft artillery and returned in 1918 to the Front. Additionally, there are period photographs of family and friends in uniform as they too went off to War, showing different regiments which make a superb uniform study to complement his story. They show the "home front" aspects of army life covering officer training and medical care and recreation.The photographer himself is a classic example of the WW1 British officer who saw service and is atypical of those who answered the call and as such is worthy of remembering by having his story told.

Vehicle Art of World War Two
By John Norris
The 'nose art' that decorated WW2 aircraft has received considerable attention but the images and slogans that decorated land vehicles has been less widely appreciated. This visually stunning book displays many fine examples (original or faithfully recreated) of the art that adorned the military vehicles of both Allied and Axis forces. Both official unit markings, such as divisional badges and unit emblems, as well as decidedly less official renderings of pin-up girls and cartoon characters are included. John Norris's concise but well researched text and extended captions set the artwork in context and explain the development of vehicle art through the course of the war and in the various armies. The result is a visual treat for the casual reader and a valuable reference for reenactors, vehicle restorers, wargamers and modellers.

Walking the Western Front: The Somme in Pictures
By Ed Skelding
The Walking the Western Front series started in 2012 with the release of two films on the Ypres Salient. Directed by acclaimed film maker Ed Skelding with guest historian Nigel Cave, the series of films offered a detailed tour of the battlefields, exploring the skirmishes originally fought there as well as calling on Nigel's high level of expertise. The duo also visited a number of war cemeteries and famous locations on the battlefields. This book, brought to you by the same team, is aimed as a companion to the DVD series and explores the history of the battlefields through the eyes of the camera team. Complete with 150 prints, both in colour and black and white taken over a twenty year period reflecting the authors many filming trips to the Somme, the book shows the battlefield as it was almost 100 years ago and is accompanied by a shot of the exact same spot as it stands today. The author then explains the significance of the photographs and why they were included in both the book and the film. Battleground historian Nigel Cave will also contribute to proceedings and add his expert knowledge to the narrative.While researching the battlefields, the author has taken many photographs with the intention of selecting locations for filming. Each has been carefully chosen to maintain the narrative and, as much as possible, to put the viewer/reader on the spot where the action took place. As the centenary of the start of the Great War approaches, these films and books are designed to follow on from the success of Great Battles of the Great War as more people visit the battlefields. While this book will take the reader to the most recognised locations on the Somme, it will also take them to the places less well known, off the beaten track.

London: Bombed, Blitzed and Blown Up
By Ian Jones
When it comes to being bombed, London is unique. Although it cannot claim to be the most bombed capital city in terms of the weight of explosive detonated it has endured the most varied and unrelenting attack since the discovery of explosives. From the first Irish Republican bomb in 1867, London and its population have been under almost constant assault. Terrorism features in virtually every decade from the 1860s to the present and has caused much damage, particularly during the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, by far the greatest destruction was from the air. The Zeppelin and Gotha bomber raids in the First World War being but a foretaste of what would happen in the Second. Then the capital was devastated, firstly by the Luftwaffe's aeroplanes and then Hitler's 'vengeance' weapons, the V-1s and V-2s. After the Second World War the bombers returned, in the form of the IRA and then the home-grown terrorists of 2005. Written by a former Explosives Officer who worked for the Counter Terrorism Command of the Metropolitan Police, this is the most comprehensive and record of Britain's capital under attack that has ever been compiled.

Great War Illustrated 1916: Archive and Colour Photographs of WWI
By Roni Wilkinson
The third in a series of five titles, which will cover each year of the war graphically. Many thousands of pictures were taken by photographers on all sides during the events of the First World War. These pictures appeared in the magazines, journals and newspapers of the time. Some illustrations went on to become part of post-war archives and have appeared, and continue to appear, in present-day publications and TV documentary programmes - many did not. The Great War Illustrated series will include in its pages many rarely seen images with individual numbers allocated, and subsequently they will be lodged with the Taylor Library Archive for use by editors and authors. The Great War Illustrated 1916 covers the Battle of the Somme, otherwise known as 'The Big Push', and the many other battles that commenced on the Western Front that year. Some images will be familiar - many will be seen for the first time by a new generation interested in the war that changed the world forever. With over 1,000 painstakingly restored images, this will be a definitive picture reference book on 1916 and will appeal to enthusiasts, collectors and students of the period alike.
