Originally set up after a request from Winston Churchill, the Ministry of Defence?s UFO Desk ran for over 60 years, collating mysterious sightings and records of strange objects in the sky from observant members of the public. As well as letters and official reports, the UFO files contain photographs, drawings and even paintings of these curious sightings. 0David Clarke has selected examples from The National Archives to present a history of British UFO art and the remarkable stories behind these images, including an alien craft on the A1, flying saucers over Hampstead, and a spaceship landing at a primary school in Macclesfield.

'What does all this stuff about flying saucers amount to? What can it mean? What is the truth?' Winston Churchill, prime minister's personal minute, 28th July 1952 The UFO Files tells the story of over 100 years of UFO sightings, drawing on formerly secret government documents at the National Archives in London. Alongside extraordinary reports by ordinary people, it reveals details of official interest and investigations stretching back more than 80 years. In this remarkable book, fully updated for this second edition, David Clarke reveals an array of startling stories from possible UFO reports hidden among Met Office investigations of aerial phenomena in the 1920s to the conclusions of Project Condign, the secret British Intelligence UFO study completed in 2000. As well as covering Roswell and Britain's own Rendlesham Forest mystery, Clarke raids the records for dramatic stories of abductions and close encounters, ghost aircraft and crop circles, and UFO reports by both civilian aircrew and military personnel. Dramatic witness statements and interviews combine with rarely seen photographs, drawings and newly available documents to offer a unique guide to one of our most intriguing mysteries.

Aliens: Past, Present and Future covers the subject of extraterrestrial life from every angle, from the earliest speculations more than 400 years ago about the possibility of life on other worlds, to today's ongoing search for Earth 2.0. In between are lessons learned about how life originated on our own planet, as well as the story behind the vast cult that has grown up around "flying saucers" and strange visitors from other planets, including popular culture renditions of them. The book is organised into three Parts. Part 1 reviews humankind's changing thinking about extraterrestrial beings and life through history, from Ancient times through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, to today; Part 2 discusses the science of extraterrestrial life - in a way that every reader, non-scientist and scientist alike, will understand; and Part 3 explores the deep impact the idea of extraterrestrial life has had, not only on science and space exploration but on popular culture as well - and the potential impact it may have on philosophy and religion. The very concept of extraterrestrial life has been a driving force behind our exploration of the universe and a pervasive presence in movies, books, comics, and advertising throughout the past century. Written by bestselling author Ron Miller and with forewords by acclaimed sci-fi novelist David Brin and Professor Andrew Fraknoi, the book features more than 200 illustrations - from centuries-old engravings, book, comic and magazine art, movie posters, purported UFO photographs, to colour illustrations showing what today's cutting-edge scientists think extraterrestrial life could be like.

UFO Presences explores the places where UFO sightings have taken place across America: in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and of course the infamous Area 51, along South Central Nevada's State Route 375--the so-called Extraterrestrial Highway, where so many travelers have reported UFO observations and other bizarre alien activities. Spanish photographer Javier Arcenillas (born 1973) has diligently photographed these locations, and sequenced them in this book as a visual road trip, mixing his photographs with news clippings and other relevant ephemera. UFO Presences is the winner of RM's 6th Photobook Award with a jury composed of David Campany, Lesley Martin, Julien Frydman, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr and Alec Soth, among others.

Art for music: the album cover as medium Art & Vinyl is an exhilarating new look into the history of the vinyl record as a medium for modern and contemporary visual art. This beautifully designed and printed publication is the first book to focus in-depth on works of art created specifically for an album, composer or musician. With reproductions of more than 200 LPs from the mid-20th century to the present, Art & Vinyl traces the trajectory of how the record album has been considered by artists as material for a work of art. The book begins with Pablo Picasso's 1949 depiction of the dove of peace, printed directly on an audio disc. Significantly, the recording was Paul Robeson's Chante Pour La Paix (Singing for Peace). Art & Vinyl also includes works by artists as disparate and wide-ranging as Ed Ruscha, Marlene Dumas, Cy Twombly, Yoko Ono, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Barbara Kruger, Robert Rauschenberg, Sol LeWitt, Sophie Calle and Andy Warhol. Highlights include Gerhard Richter's extraordinary oil painting made directly on a recording of Glenn Gould's Bach: The Goldberg Variations (1984), as well as Allan Kaprow's LP How to Make a Happening (1966). Also featured are albums of original recordings by Joseph Beuys, Yves Klein, Jean Dubuffet, Christian Marclay and Wolfgang Tillmans, among others. Some of the better-known artists' covers for rock, pop and jazz albums featured here are Jann Haworth and Peter Blake's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band; Jim Dine's cover for The Best of Cream; Lee Friedlander's portrait of Miles Davis for In a Silent Way; Warhol's cover for Sticky Fingers and Robert Frank's Exile on Main Street; Mapplethorpe's classic Patti Smith portrait for Horses; Robert Longo's cover for Glenn Branca's The Ascension; Fischli/Weiss's Liliput; and Alec Soth's cover for Dolorean's The Unfazed. Art & Vinyl has been assembled over the course of nearly a decade by curator and collector Antoine de Beaupré, author of Total Records and founder of Librarie Galerie 213 in Paris.

The first book of its kind, the UFO Sightings Desk Reference: United States of America 2001-2015 presents data and analysis for 100,000+ sightings of unidentified flying objects reported by individuals during the first 15 years of the 21st century. Since 1969 the government has claimed no interest in the subject, and the press and media either ignore or ridicule any mention of UFOs. Yet citizen scientists and non-governmental organizations have continued to this day the research into this important subject: this book seeks to make the hardest data available accessible to the general public, as well as other UFO researchers. The book is organized into beginning narrative sections including analysis of UFO sightings, frequently asked questions, and how to use this book, followed by the data. Charts, tables, and maps are presented of summary data for the entire US and individual chapters for all 50 states (down to the county level) plus the District of Columbia. Aimed at the serious UFO researcher, this comprehensive volume is also of value to academic and public libraries, news organizations, and anyone who is interested in what is flying in the skies over their heads where they live.

Snapshots from the moon: NASA photographs from the earliest manned space flights NASA's Apollo program landed the first humans on the moon in 1969. In the next three years, Apollo sent 10 more men to the moon in five subsequent missions. The first moon landing in particular is a legendarily well-documented event, representing one of those rare moments in which the world was united in awe, witnessing the feat together on their television screens. But each Apollo mission also generated hundreds of photographs, many of which have only recently been released by NASA. A selection of these images--shot by the astronauts themselves with suit-mounted and handheld Hasselblad cameras--are gathered in this beautifully designed, affordable volume. Many of the photographs, though shot originally for scientific, documentary purposes, have an extraordinary snapshot quality, boasting inadvertently artful compositions and effects: in one, a pair of astronaut's legs emerges upside down from the bottom of the frame; in another, a striding astronaut appears to glow against the black recesses of space. Contextualized with background information about the Apollo Missions and the role of photographic documentation in them, the photographs in The Moon 1968-1972are fascinating documents of the majesty of outer space, but also record the surface of the moon as a landscape of wonder. This is the moon of which E.B. White wrote in the July 1969 issue of The New Yorker: "The moon, it turns out, is a great place for men. One-sixth gravity must be a lot of fun, and when Armstrong and Aldrin went into their bouncy little dance, like two happy children, it was a moment not only of triumph but of gaity."

From 1968 to 1971, anyone could drop in to the basement in Camden Town and commission a poster from the Poster Workshop. In walked workers on strike, tenants associations, civil rights groups and liberation movements from all over the world. Inspired by the Atelier Populaire, set up in Paris in May 1968, the posters were made quickly to respond to what was needed, on a great number of themes: Vietnam, Northern Ireland, housing, workers rights, and revolution. The Poster Workshop thrived on the energy generated by the belief that huge changes were possible, through movements for equality, civil rights, freedom and revolution. It was an expression of that time - of excitement, change and hope.

Only Weirdos See UFOs

An Introduction to the Public's Misperception of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena and Extraterrestrial Life

Only Weirdos See UFOs provides a brief glimpse into the strange, but real, world of unidentified aerial phenomena. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with an introduction to the UFO phenomenon, with an emphasis on the fact that, although some pretty weird people claim to see strange things in the sky, UFOs are seen by people from all walks of life around the world every day. And, although extraterrestrial life makes for great science fiction, scientists are confident that the discovery of life (including intelligent life) elsewhere in the universe is just around the corner. Even more surprising is the assertion by some scientists that extraterrestrial life has already been discovered. But the stigma surrounding these fascinating topics restricts the open public curiosity and unbiased scientific inquiry required for us to gain any insight into these mysteries.

For 100 years, strange activity has been occurring off the southern California Coast. Mile for mile, this area is one of the top producers of USOs (unidentified submersible objects) in the entire world. Drawing on firsthand testimonies from the Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, police officers, lifeguards, residents and many others, Preston Dennett presents a compelling case for the possible existence of an undersea UFO base. Sightings of weird lights, anomalous glowing clouds, objects flying in and out of the water, mass UFO sightings, humanoid encounters--they're all here. More than ten years of research, presented here for the first time. The truth about this area can no longer be denied: something very strange is lurking in these waters. Inside you will find: --more than 70 cases of UFOs over the water. --more than 70 cases of USOs in the water. --firsthand eyewitness testimonies from a wide variety of military witnesses. --original encounters never before published. --mass UFO sightings, some involving hundreds of objects. --humanoid encounters, including abductions to an apparent base. --a behind the scenes look at the History Channel's Deep Sea UFOs 1 & 2, and UFO Hunters, USOs. --maps showing the location of all the activity. --an in-depth exploration of the "Malibu Anomaly." --photographs and drawings of UFOs and USOs, witnesses and encounter locations. --original USO accounts from across the world. Is there really an Undersea UFO Base off the southern California Coast? The evidence is in the pages that follow.
