Produced by artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari since 2010, the profoundly strange magazine has a huge cult following in the worlds of art and design. "Toiletpaper has always had no purpose," Cattelan is quoted in W magazine. "It simply has happened. Like an avalanche, it started little and slow and has quickly gone out of our control."

Isamu Noguchi: Playscapes

Already established as one of the great artists and designers of the twentieth century during the years leading up to World War II, Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) aimed to build spaces that would "promote a sense of belonging and provide ways to be free and have undirected experiences," according to Isamu Noguchi: Playscapes essayist Manuela Moscoso. He "viewed creative play as a way of learning about and participating in the world, emphasizing imagination, especially that of children, given that they represented the future that would be rebuilt by the fractured postwar society." Featured photographs are of play equipment study models, 1966-76.

Isamu Noguchi: Playscapes

Best known as a visionary artist who redefined abstract sculpture in the 1930s, Isamu Noguchi also designed experimental gardens and furniture, lights, ceramics, architecture, and sets for theater and dance. He was also one of the twentieth century's most inventive designers of children's playspaces. All of Noguchi's playground designs—built and unbuilt—are gathered in a truly wonderful new book from RM/Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo. Reproduced here is Ruiko Yoshida's 1961 photograph of Noguchi and child looking at an early model for Riverside Park Playground—an unrealized masterpiece designed in collaboration with architect Louis I. Kahn and the object of five years of resistance from various factions involved in NYC park planning.

Bad Luck, Hot Rocks: Conscience Letters and Photographs from the Petrified Forest

In celebration of the one-hundredth anniversary of the creation of America's National Park Service, we present these spreads from staff favorite Bad Luck, Hot Rocks: Conscience Letters and Photographs from the Petrified Forest. Featuring photographs of rocks returned to the park alongside the letters of regret that accompanied them, this volume is impossible to put down. Notes like, "This rock was taken without knowledge of the curse. Sorry," and "Found this in my Room, you can Have it back. It's bad luck I got Busted the other night," are typical, alluding to the legend that stealing rocks from the Petrified Forest brings bad luck. "I am at your mercy," reads a portion of the note at top, "for when I did it I knew there was a fine but like I say I was not a christian and if you think I should pay a fine or go to prison I am at your mercy and you have my address."

Bruce Conner Brass Handles

Just in time for the major Bruce Conner retrospective currently on view at MoMA, J&L Books has published a book unlike any other. Featuring photographs by Jason Fulford and text by the artist's wife, Jean Conner, taken from an interview with collaborate art project Will Brown, the book documents the 163 solid brass handles which Conner placed throughout his house after he began to have mobility issues related to liver disease. "I didn't know quite what to do with all these things after Bruce died," Jean Conner is quoted. "And somebody said, well, they're house jewelry."

Bruce Conner Brass Handles

There is something profoundly inspiring in knowing that Bruce Conner approached his illness at the end of his life with the same inventive fury that exemplified his unparalleled art career. As his mobility became more impaired, he fashioned 163 brass handles throughout his home to aid in getting around, creating something of an art installation devoted to the quotidian. A merry artifact vibrantly documented by Jason Fulford and lovingly packaged by the geniuses at J&L Books, this book is the product of Will Brown, a collaborative project founded by Lindsey White, Jordan Stein and David Kasprzak.

Imagining the Future Art Book

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
