FEATURED IMAGE

'Semina Culture' at the LAABF

"Wallace was always a mystery to me, and he was very glamorous," Dennis Hopper is quoted in Semina Culture, the quintessential book on Wallace Berman and his circle, which sold out immediately upon first publication in 2005. "He was 
a quiet, gentle, humble person, and he had this strange aura about him that was removed, yet not hostile—he was a guy you couldn’t really reach. I don’t know anybody who didn’t respect him, and we all deferred to him because he had a very spiritual quality. He was the guy. Wallace was the guru." Advance copies of the long-awaited reprint will be available at our booth at the LAABF this Thursday through Sunday, alongside signed and numbered Berman limited edition posters and books by related artists—including Tosh Berman, pictured above with his mother, Shirley. The photograph, taken by Wallace Berman in Beverly Glen, 1956, is reproduced from Semina Culture.

Miller & Go. publishes books by and about contemporary artists at all stages of their careers, from emerging to established, with a particular focus on artists whose work can be ideally represented in book form. Writers are vital to the publications, and their writings are often integrally combined with the images and artworks contained in the books.

ARTBOOK CURATED LIBRARIES FOR ART AND PHOTO BOOK COLLECTORS

Artist's Books Library

Artist's Books LibraryWhile important precedents can be found for the artist’s book in numerous Futurist, Dada, Surrealist and Situationist publications, the book as a medium equivalent to painting or sculpture was consolidated in the early 1960s, its leading exponents being Ed Ruscha, Sol Lewitt and Dieter Roth. Today, the ubiquity of the term attests to its massive international expansion as a practice at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

BEST OF 2014: Georges Braque & Others: The Selected Art Writings of Trevor Winkfield, 1990-2009 "Not very familiar with the work of Trevor Winkfield, I was upset for years about his painting on the cover of Raymond Roussel's 'How I Wrote Certain of My Books,' published by Exact Change in 1996. But after reading these selected art writings, I began to sense the what and why of color and of composition in his paintings, however foxed they still leave me..."
