The New ARTBOOK | D.A.P. CatalogDear Friends and Readers,

In 1955, Rudolf Flesch's Why Johnny Can't Read, which famously condemns the "see-say" visual method of teaching reading, made it onto the bestseller lists. Ironically, that same year, two books were published that would turn out to be classics of visual bookmaking: Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson and The Family of Man by Edward Steichen. More than a half-century later, we don't quite yet have the words to describe the distinctive kind of reading that is visual reading. It's related to, but different from, looking at a picture or watching a movie, and it cries out for its own verb—but there is no denying that the visual book has come into its own. Today the publishers, editors, designers and visual artists producing graphic novels, artists' books and photobooks are surely the creative peers of their literary brethren.

One sign of the maturity of the visual book is that several publishers are now devoting a part of their lists to new editions, facsimiles and reprints of visual book classics. It's only very recently that having a personal library of the seminal photobooks, for example, has been an affordable option. Just as a young writer can have his or her literary giants on the shelf, so a young photographer can now reach for books by Robert Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, William Eggleston, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Sally Mann, Cindy Sherman, Stephen Shore, Paul Strand and Edward Weston—to make too short a list.

Alongside a wealth of new monographs (such as Aperture's volume on Florence Henri, whose "Portrait Composition, Cora" graces our cover this season), the ARTBOOK | D.A.P. Spring 2015 catalogue features quite a number of reissued photobook classics; we've also noted publication history for you. Because reproduction technologies have evolved so much over the last decades, these new editions are, in many cases, even more beautiful than the originals. Two of these titles deserve especial notice here: Steidl's new edition of Henri Cartier-Bresson's The Decisive Moment and Aperture's new edition of Stephen Shore's Uncommon Places.

More than 600 new books from the world's foremost museums and international art publishers await your discovery in these pages. We're delighted to be part of your visual dialogue.

Enjoy the books,
