The deceptive simplicity of Women in Trees

The deceptive simplicity of Women in Trees'Women in Trees,' a lovely little collection of some 50 vintage amateur photographs of, well, women in trees, is a true gem. This diminutive volume provides a happy glimpse into forgotten moments from the past. What exactly these moments are is not always easy to determine, but the sincerity with which the women pose in their trees lends the book its undeniable charm.

Small Wonders: Late Gothic Boxwood Microcarvings from the Low Countries

Small Wonders: Late Gothic Boxwood Microcarvings from the Low CountriesPublished on the occasion of an exhibition that opened today at the Met Cloisters, this book and the tiny treasures it holds offer up the perfect dose of amazement and escape during a time in which our daily tasks can seem unbearably large. 'Small Wonders' is all about prayer nuts: miniscule boxwood carvings from the late-Gothic period that depict religious scenes and texts...

Maddie Gilmore on the Textiles of Marguerita Mergentime
Marguerita Mergentime has largely been forgotten in the history of American design, but she is the subject of West Madison Press's sprightly new book.

James Moore: Photographs 1962-2006

James Moore: Photographs 1962-2006Looking at the breadth of fashion photographer James Moore’s work you might wonder why his name doesn’t sound more familiar. But a quick Google search reveals the astonishing fact that Moore is a complete ghost on the Internet. Anna Skrabacz reviews Damiani's stunning new monograph.

Artbook Pages Through Karl Blossfeldt: Masterworks

Karl Blossfeldt: Masterworks, An Artbook ReviewThe flora in 'Karl Blossfeldt: Masterworks' do not scream "botanical photography." Instead the plants appear to be composed in another medium entirely—maybe iron sculpture or illustration. As a self-taught photographer, sculptor and teacher Karl Blossfeldt created a highly original way of photographing plants.

The perfect holiday gift book for the one who doubts everything

Let’s face it, the holidays can be oppressive—psychologically, spiritually, emotionally and aesthetically. Our antidote: Vincent Sardon: The Stampographer, published by Siglio Press. Case in point: Sardon’s sado-masochistic Christmas tree ornament stamps. With just two colors of ink and a few blocks of rubber, Sardon is able to produce an image that is at once festive, ironic, delicate, vulgar, offensive, hilarious, ridiculous and completely original, even as it is also infinitely and intentionally reproducible by anyone with the nerve to stop by his small storefront studio in Paris. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. The perfect holiday gift book for the one who doubts everything.

FEATURED STORE

Artbook @ Usagi NY

From October 5 through December 31, 2017, Artbook will present a pop-up bookstore at Usagi New York, a 2800 square foot space in Dumbo, Brooklyn, designed by Sou Fujimoto. Described as a "shop to showcase multidisciplinary culture," the space contains a coffee and tea bar, a gallery, a library, and an area where books and objects are sold. The book selection is based on Usagi's core values of renewal, spring, and togetherness, while the focus of the store is on the transformative power of art, architecture, design, and critical theory, and work which embraces the challenge of changing reality in pursuit of a better future. According to Usagi, the store "brings together dining, retail, and art to provide an optimal environment for cross-disciplinary creativity and inspiration. The modular exhibition space is endlessly reinvented by artists, designers, and architects who express the language of tradition in innovative and exciting ways."
