FEATURED IMAGE

ALBUM

In a recent issue of KUNSTforum, Norway's leading art magazine, Mari Rustan interviews photographer Eline Mugaas, copublisher of the influential cult collage magazine ALBUM, the first ten issues of which have been gathered in an awesome new 430-page compendium by Primary Information. Mugaas explains, "ALBUM is a fanzine made by Elise Storsveen and me. It is made up of borrowed images that we have collected over many years from books and magazines. We had played around with the images making gifts for friends. Then we discovered that the architect space downstairs from my studio had a copy machine and they let us use it for cost. It’s all about who you sleep with." …continue

ART AND PHOTO BOOK PUBLISHERS

Metropolis Books

Metropolis Books publishes timely, thought-provoking, useful, and beautiful books that explore how design shapes culture, even as culture shapes the designed environment at every scale. Books focus on contemporary issues in architecture, urbanism, preservation, interior design, product design, and landscape architecture, particularly as these relate to the sustainable, natural environment and evolving technologies. Metropolis Books was founded by Sharon Helgason Gallagher and Horace Havemayer III and has developed under the editorial leadership of Diana Murphy. The imprint is a collaboration between Metropolis Magazine and ARTBOOK | D.A.P.

ARTBOOK CURATED LIBRARIES FOR ART AND PHOTO BOOK COLLECTORS

A Surrealist Bookshelf

A Surrealist BookshelfFounding Surrealist André Breton defined Surrealism as “pure psychic automatism, by which an attempt is made to express, either verbally, in writing or in any other manner, the true functioning of thought. The dictation of thought, in the absence of all control by reason, excluding any aesthetic or moral preoccupation.” To these supra-rational ends, the Surrealist artists and poets pioneered and developed new techniques that ramified across all of the arts, from poetry to painting to cinema. This library collects some of the most essential texts and surveys on the movement.
