Subversive, even scandalous: Francis Picabia: Littérature

Subversive, even scandalous: Francis Picabia: LittératureOriginally produced as potential covers for André Breton's 1920s Surrealist literary journal, 'Littérature,' the 26 subversive—at the time, even scandalous—Francis Picabia drawings that are collected in this remarkable new limited edition from Small Press Books had been sealed in an envelope (dated August 8, 1923) and forgotten for decades until Breton's daughter, Aube Breton-Elléouët, unearthed them in 2008.

On the Small and the Contrary

On the Small and the Contrary Lisa Pearson of Siglio writes on publishing as "An act of resistance to the literal, the authoritarian and the facile... and as a testament to the 'book' as refuge, dissent, beacon, and nexus."

Robert Storr on Ruth Asawa

Best known for her labor-intensive, hanging woven wire sculptures, Ruth Asawa also produced wonderful watercolors and paintings like Untitled (BMC.92, In and Out) (c. 1946-49), reproduced here from the gorgeous new oversized monograph from David Zwirner Books. "Contemplating her oeuvre with even a fraction of the concentration that she devoted to creating it makes our minds supple," Robert Storr writes. "…The time is right for Asawa to return to our attention because such imaginative suppleness is what we so sorely lack these days. For the perils of trying to dominate Nature rather than attempting to imitate it in its manner of operation are all around us—and they are terrifying. With exceptional grace and intimacy, Asawa pointed toward a more hopeful point of departure—and for us in the eleventh hour, of collective re-departure."

FEATURED STORE

Greenlight Bookstore

In 2008, the venerable Brooklyn community organization known as the Fort Greene Association commissioned a survey to find out what kinds of retail options local residents thought were missing from their changing neighborhood. Across all demographics of income level, ethnicity and background, the number one answer was “a bookstore.” In September of that year, more than 300 locals came out to support the bookstore plan. Colson Whitehead and local residents gave speeches, and the event was covered in the New York Times . At the party, owners Rebecca Fitting and Jessica Stockton Bagnulo launched their Community Lender Program, in which individuals loaned the store $1000 or more in order to help the store get started. Since Greenlight’s doors opened in 2009, Jessica, Rebecca and their staff have put down roots, and settled into a community that said they wanted a bookstore, then helped to make it happen. Today, Greenlight carries a wide and lovingly curated selection of books, and keeps up an extremely ambitious calendar of events. In November of 2016, a second location opened in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, where co-owner Rebecca Fitting lives. The 2,100 square foot retail space at 632 Flatbush Avenue (at Fenimore Street) is part of the new development The Parkline. >>visit bookstore website
