Cameron: Songs for the Witch Woman

"'Rise up! I have surpassed the tomb you dreamed for me,' declared Cameron in 1956. An exhortation to her deceased husband, rocket scientist and occultist Jack Parsons (1914–1952), Cameron's prose implied a spiritual breakthrough and a fearless resolve to continue on the magical path Parsons had introduced to her in 1946. Originally published in Wallace Berman's avant-garde art journal Semina, today Cameron's words resonate not only as mystical poetry, but as a shot across the bow of time: that her art not be buried with her body, that we see her art undead and always alive." Excerpt from Yael Lipschutz' text and Autumn (1955) are reproduced from Cameron: Songs for the Witch Woman, one of the featured Semina-related titles in our store this week at the LAABF.

Jim Goldberg: Rich and Poor

QUESTION: Does anyone make a better photobook than STEIDL? ANSWER: No.
To bask in a substantial selection of key titles from this leading German publisher, including the superb new edition of Jim Goldberg's Rich and Poor, visit our STEIDL booth at the LAABF at the Geffen Contemporary. Out of print since 1985, Rich and Poor has been completely re-designed and expanded by the artist for this new edition. Available for the first time in hardcover, Rich and Poor builds upon the classic combination of photographs and handwriting, and includes vintage material and contemporary photographs that have never been published or exhibited before.

Ed Ruscha: Books and Paintings

In Ed Ruscha: Books and Paintings, Armin Zweite quotes the artist on his Boss paintings: "'It wasn't the multiplicity of its meanings that gave the power. It's somehow the roundness of the whole thing—and the 'S's' and the 'B' and the 'O'.... Somehow that's where all of this inspiration is contained.'" Visit ARTBOOK at the LAABF Thursday through Sunday at the Geffen Contemporary. We are pleased to present many books on Ruscha and other radical artists from the west coast Beat scene. Featured image is "Not Only Securing The Last Letter, But Damaging It As Well (Boss)" (1964).

'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.

Bruce Davidson: In Color

Describing his 1993 assignment to photograph the Pacific Coast Highway for Travel & Leisure magazine in STEIDL's essential new monograph on his color work, Bruce Davidson writes, "It was a dream assignment to cruise up the coastal highway from Santa Monica, California to Seattle, Washington taking pictures of vistas along the way. Some of the highway views were exquisitely powerful with the mountain range's foothills coming right down to the Pacific Ocean coastline. My wife Emily and I felt the power and beauty at this edge of America. It took us seventeen days to complete the journey and without Emily's abundant energy, strong driving skills and astute organizing, I could not have completed the project." Advance copies will be available at our ARTBOOK + STEIDL booth at the LAABF, opening Thursday night at the Geffen Contemporary!

Joel Meyerowitz: Retrospective

"I think all the stuff on the street is a gift. But you only get it if you go out there every day. You have to be there to see it, you have to read the content of the street. 
I think it's rich with potential meaning, and with the light changing every minute, that, too, changes the meaning of what you read. I am always looking to make a photograph of something nearby, and something far away, at the same time.
 For me, that 's what so exquisite about being out on the street, that it's throwing all this content at me all day long, and I am trying to see what can I do with all this loose information, how can I put a frame around it to make it somehow astonishing, while actually it is just ordinary life?" Featured image ("New York City, 1975) and excerpt are reproduced from Joel Meyerowitz: Retrospective.

Imagining the Future Art Book
Sharon Helgason Gallagher

Future of the Art Book

"Paging through a book is like closing a door behind you that simultaneously opens another onto a new room -- all the while keeping the previous room available, just behind the now-closed door of the turned page. Here I am in the hallway of the introduction..." -- excerpt from Sharon Helgason Gallagher's remarks at the New York Public Library panel discussion The Future of the Art Book

What Shall We Want to Have Called a "Book"?
Sharon Helgason Gallagher

What Shall We Want to Have Called a "Book"?

What are the kinds of books we ought to be publishing today as exemplars of the book for the future? What is the enduring legacy of "bookishness" that we want to -- may I say "ought to" -- transmit to the future? What kinds of meaning are and can be transmitted uniquely in the book form? What is the "bookishness" of the book that does not survive conversion, translation, adaptation, or reformatting as a digital publication? And what kinds of books even posses this quality?
