EX LIBRIS: Herbert Pfostl: The Original List

DATE 8/31/2013

In 2009, Herbert Pfostl--legendary curator and book buyer for the New Museum Store--put together a list of his then-top ten most indispensible books--many of which turned out to be bilingual or German first editions by somewhat obscure international publishers of critical, philosophically adventurous material. No surprise there; we were challenged. A few years later, in 2012, he put together a somewhat more accessible list of philosophically similar books distributed by ARTBOOK | D.A.P. Somewhere along the way, the first list inexplicably disappeared from our site. We are proud to bring it back again, along with a newly edited list of additional suggested readings at bottom.

1. Hans Prinzhorn – Bildnerei der Geisteskranken
Beautifuly reprinted by Springer Wien/NewYork as a sober black hardcover design after the original first edition from 1922.
