In January, we publish The Wager Disaster, the little known true story of shipwreck survival in 1741 written by Rear Admiral Kit Layman. The Blues: A Visual History documents Blues music from it’s beginnings to the present day. 2015 sees the 150th anniversary of the birth of Rudyard Kipling – to celebrate this, and the centenary of World War I, we are re-publishing his essays, The New Army in Training. Following her exhibition at the National Gallery in November 2014, Maggi Hambling will exhibit at Somerset House in March 2015, for which we are publishing Maggi Hambling: War Requiem, looking at her extensive work on battlefields and the victims of war. At the same time we are publishing War & Peace and Sonya: A Russian Story, a fictional diary of Sonya, the wife of Leo Tolstoy, with photographs and illustrations.

March sees the publication of David Inshaw. This large monograph written by Andrew Lambirth, charts the complete career of this leading British artist. To commemorate the 75 years since the end of World War II we are re-publishing The Hurricane Story by Paul Gallico.

Two titles for April are both about great men. Van Gogh: The Asylum Year, written by Edwin Mullins, looks month by month, at the year Van Gogh spent in an asylum in France before finally taking his own life a few months later. Wellington Honoured is a companion volume to Wellington Portrayed and is an illustrated guide to every medal the Great Duke was awarded by Britain and many other grateful countries. 2015 is the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Gurkha Regiment and The Gurkhas: 200 Years of Service to the Crown, written by the Colonel of the Royal Ghurka Rifles and with complete access to the Gurkha archive, looks at that long and glorious history.

The Imperial War Museum has a strong publishing program for the first half of 2015. Churchill’s Cookbook was written by his cook of many years Georgina Landemare, and includes 300 recipes. The Second World War A-Z follows on from the success of The First World War A-Z. Art from Contemporary Conflict showcases The IWM as the owner of one of the largest collections of 20th century art in the UK. Two books, Healthy Eating in Wartime and Wise Eating in Wartime, are being re-issued by the IWM in a slipcase edition Food for Thought. Heni Publishing continues to produce beautiful books on contemporary artists and Sabine Moritz: Helicopter is a welcome addition to the list. Monsieur Notebooks producers of high quality leather stationery, have a new range of purple notebooks and artists books for 2015.

We hope you enjoy our new books and have a very successful year. Yours cordially,

Lord Strathcarron, Hugh Tempest-Radford, Lucy Duckworth, Simon Perks, Ryan Gearing.
