Karabagh, Nakhichevan and Azerbaijan in Contemporary Geopolitical Conflict
This is the first multidisciplinary volume with the focus on the barely accessible highlands between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and their invaluable artistic heritage. Numerous ancient and mediaeval monuments of Artsakh/Karabagh and Nakhichevan find themselves in the crucible of a strife involving mutually exclusive national accounts. They are gravely endangered today by the politics of cultural destruction endorsed by the modern State of Azerbaijan.
The book is composed of 16 contributions by renowned scholars from eight nations. It contains rare photographic documentation and a detailed inventory. Part One explores the historical geography of these lands and their architecture. Part Two analyses the development of Azerbaijani nationalism against the background of the centuries-long geopolitical contest between Russia and Turkey. Part Three documents instances of destroyed monuments and examines them in the light of international law.

Centering Periphery: New Perspectives on Collecting East Asia, edited by Nataša Vampelj Suhadolnik, explores East Asian collections in "peripheral" areas of Europe and North America and their relationship with the collections of that kind in former imperial and colonial centres. Authors not only present the stories of a number of less well-known individual objects and collections, but also discuss the socioeconomic conditions, fashion trends, and evolving tastes in collecting East Asian objects in areas that were not European centres of colonial power.
To date, research on the collecting East Asian objects in the Euro-American region has focused primarily on larger collections and collectors in France, Britain, and the United States. The first traces of stories from the periphery already point to some important departures from the dominant discourses and practises of East Asian collecting, as well as the adaptation and questioning of established taxonomies and knowledge systems.

Watermarks 1450-1850 offers a concise history of the production of paper in Western Europe from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century. The research is based on watermarks collected from various sources in combination with other elements from the trade. This includes for instance decorated paper and ream wrappers. The authors offer an insight into the different sizes in combination with watermarks. Over 700 watermarks are illustrated.

Frans and Theo Laurentius have published two more books on the topic in this same book series: Italian Watermarks 1750-1860 (2016), and Watermarks in Paper from the South-West of France, 1560-1860 (2018). In 2007/2008 they published Watermarks (1600-1650) Found in the Zeeland Archives and Watermarks (1650-1700) Found in the Zeeland Archives.
