The Winter Ghosts, By Kate Moss

Kate Mosse is no stranger to the pleasures of the supernatural. Her previous novel, Sepulchre, dealt in Tarot cards and devil worship, while Labyrinth, her international bestseller, rivalled Dan Brown in the Grail-gripper stakes. This short novel, a ghost story of the old school, is an altogether more compressed and classic affair.

Vogue Covers, Ed. Robin Derrick & Robin Muir

The first covers of British Vogue, launched in the inauspicious year of 1916, might have come from a book of nursery rhymes, but by 1917 readers were presented with a drawing of a fur-clad, kohl-eyed beauty bloodily spearing a polar bear. Though it shocks more now than then, at least it was honest about the source of fur. Another startling image came towards the end of a gorgeous run of art deco covers: a 1931 take on Botticelli's "Venus" shows a full-frontal nude, though, as the editors point out, "a cresting wave covers her modesty". Retouching enabled the first photo covers in the Thirties to attain the perfection of illustration.

Album: The Lemonheads, Varshons (Cooking Vinyl)

Evan Dando continues his career as the slacker's slacker with this collection of cover versions, approached with such lack of interest that he couldn't be bothered to source the songs himself, but instead relied upon mixtapes given him by the Butthole Surfers' Gibby Haynes, producer for the project.
