Trine Søndergaard & Nicolai Howalt: How to HuntTrine Søndergaard & Nicolai Howalt: How to Hunt

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Liz Wells.

Danish photographers Trine Søndergaard (born 1972) and Nicolai Howalt (born 1970) joined annual fall and winter hunts in Denmark to create their series How to Hunt. Portraying the age-old practice in its contemporary incarnation as a sport, the duo investigates hunting's transformation from a necessity of survival to a symbol of cultural privilege.

Matt Leines: You Are ForgivenMatt Leines: You Are Forgiven

Published by Free News Projects.
Introduction by Gary Panter. Text by Taylor McKimens.

If I stumble upon something, I'll just try to draw it in my sketchbook as quick as possible, New Jersey-based artist Matt Leines has said of his process. "I like to look at a lot of paintings from different cultures where you have to infer what is going on. If there is something I come across, an image, a composition, an idea, I just draw it--and I'll use the word bastardized--until the initial influence has disappeared and it exists only in my world." Leines--who was born in 1980 and remains inspired by all of the WWF wrestling and He-Man cartoons he absorbed in his youth--was at Providence's Rhode Island School of Design during the tail end of the now mythic scene that grew up around the raucous, DIY art space Fort Thunder. Leines, who studied illustration at RISD, has poured these influences into a graphic, illustrative technique that blends his experience of suburban American culture with styles he borrows from primitive and non-Western art, creating a highly original, new-fangled psychedelic stew. Recent obsessively detailed, highly patterned works done in ink, watercolor and pencil on paper feature a cast of aboriginal-looking men posing with spears or shrouded in ornate masks. For those not lucky enough to have bought a drawing when this now highly collectable artist was selling on eBay to the highest bidder, this volume-his first monograph-will more than suffice.

Andy Warhol: Vanishing AnimalsAndy Warhol: Vanishing Animals

Published by Lococo Fine Art Publisher.

Similar in style to the Pop maestro's Love series, if wildly different in subject matter, Vanishing Animals gives the Warhol treatment not to sexy young things or movie stars, but to even scarcer subjects: endangered animals like the okapi and Galápagos tortoise. (A little known fact about Warhol is that he was deeply concerned about the plight of endangered species.) These animals, rendered in his sketchy but sure line drawings, are silkscreened on brilliantly colored torn paper collages.

Alexander Calder: Animal SketchingAlexander Calder: Animal Sketching

Published by Editions Dilecta.
Preface by Arnauld Pierre.

Animal Sketching was Alexander Calder's first book, published in New York in 1926 shortly before he left for France. It is a study of about ten animals and their movements, illustrated by numerous drawings, and with short commentaries by Calder on individual species and on problems of caricature, action and pose (or lack thereof). Animal Sketching also provides some insight into his ingenious sculptural work, foreshadowing as it does his famous Miniature Circus of 1927, in which these animals achieved full dimensionality. Following the Whitney Museum's 2008 exhibit on Calder's Paris years, Éditions Dilecta here provides a facsimile of a foundational publication by one of America's most beloved artists. This edition adds a postface by Arnauld Pierre, Calder expert and member of the Calder Foundation board. Beautifully and modestly designed, Animal Sketching is a giftworthy gem that will tickle adults and children alike.

James Mollison: James & Other ApesJames Mollison: James & Other Apes

Published by Chris Boot.
Text by Jane Goodall.

Fifty great apes--chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos, our closest biological relatives--are featured in this series of portraits by James Mollison. Photographed over a span of four years in seven ape sanctuaries (in Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Germany and the United States), they are mainly orphans, victims of the illicit trade in "bushmeat." Djeke, Fizi, Gregoire, James, Koto and the others are all photographed as unique individuals, in the manner of passport photographs, while representing species whose survival is under threat. Featuring case note biographies and introduced with a powerful essay by Jane Goodall, this book celebrates the great apes. The faces that look back at us also raise profound moral and scientific questions--including what it means to define ourselves "human."

Marcel Dzama: Drawings from the Bernardi CollectionMarcel Dzama: Drawings from the Bernardi Collection

Published by Art Gallery of Windsor.
Text by James Patten, Wayne Baerwaldt.

Over the past few years Marcel Dzama's drawings of odd mutant figures have propelled him to bona fide art stardom. Executed with guileless simplicity and infused with a radiant innocence and an idiosyncratic sense of humor far removed from other strategies that have fueled artmaking over the past decade, Dzama's work is part of a new sensibility among artists born in the mid-1970s, that mingles the influence of Henry Darger, cartoon strips and a dark surrealistic streak. This concise and affordable survey examines the evolution of Dzama's singular approach to drawing between the key years of 1996 and 2001, using works held in the Bernardi Collection. In an accompanying essay, James Patten links Dzama to Mikhail Bakhtin's ideas on grotesque humor and the carnivalesque, showing how each drawing contains an amalgam of allusions to twentieth-century popular culture.

Laura OwensLaura Owens

Published by Charta.
Edited by Pieranna Cavalchini. Essays by Jennifer Gross, Anne Hawley, and Russell Ferguson.

Laura Owens is among a select group of artists credited with the rebirth of American painting. She has developed a style all her own, moving from landscape to abstraction in energetic thick brushstrokes, fanciful childlike doodles, or sophisticated fine line drawings. "Each painting can act as a question," she says, and, demonstrating a wide and imaginative range, she constantly experiments and redefines her work. "Ultimately, you want to make the painting that you want to be with, not one that is constantly telling you everything it knows. Who wants to be with something or someone like that? It's more fun to be with someone who is willing to go out on a limb." This book is designed by Owens herself, and accompanies an exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Along with paintings from the show, it includes new drawings made exclusively for the publication, as well as several textile works from the museum's collection that inspired her during her residency of Spring 2000.

The Adventures of PercivalThe Adventures of Percival

A Phylogenetic Tale

Published by Dis Voir.
By Pierre Senges. Edited by Daniele Riviere. Text by Dominique Lestel, Alain Richert. Illustrations by Nicolas de Crécy.

The first installment in Dis Voir's new "illustrated fairy tales for adults," The Adventures of Percival is based on the classic probability proposition that a chimpanzee randomly typing will eventually type a Shakespeare sonnet. Here, McIntosh, a gardener-mathematician (and spiritual cousin of Baron Münchhausen), decides to take the fable seriously, and with the assistance of a typewriter and a chimpanzee called Percival, undertakes to enact the experiment. Naturally things don't go as planned, as the chimpanzee proves to be less compliant than expected and bizarre behavioral mergings occur between man and animal. Nicolas de Crécy's comic drawings sometimes illustrate and sometimes contradict Senges' narrative, or inveigle themselves between his lines like a creeper. Inspired by research in animal behavior led by Dominique Lestel, and by the work of the landscape artist-gardener Alain Richert, Senges' tale of interspecies cognition makes a conscious nod towards contemporary debates within the cognitive sciences.
