Philippe Halsman's Jump BookPhilippe Halsman's Jump Book

Published by Damiani.

With this beautiful facsimile edition, Damiani brings the classic 1959 photo-book back into print. Philippe Halsman's Jump Book gathers nearly 200 Halsman portraits of famous subjects in midair. These uniquely witty and energetic images of airborne movie stars, politicians, royalty, artists and authors have become an important part of Halsman's photographic legacy.
For a period of six years in the mid-1950s, Halsman ended his portrait sessions by asking his sitters to jump. Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Edward Steichen, Audrey Hepburn, Robert Oppenheimer, John Steinbeck, Weegee, Aldous Huxley, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Brigitte Bardot and Groucho Marx all took the leap of faith. It is a tribute to Halsman's powers of persuasion that even Richard Nixon, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and other figures not famed for their spontaneity were talked into "rising" to the challenge.
Philippe Halsman's Jump Book was first published in 1959, and included a delightful essay by Halsman on the new science of "Jumpology." "When you ask a person to jump," Halsman wrote, "his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping, and the mask falls, so that the real person appears." The images are witty, energetic and unexpected.
Portrait photographer Philippe Halsman (1906-79) was born in Riga, Latvia. The Second World War forced Halsman to flee to New York in 1940, where he established himself as an in-demand portrait photographer, shooting covers for virtually every major American magazine.

Blueprint for Counter EducationBlueprint for Counter Education

Published by Inventory Press.
By Maurice R. Stein, Larry Miller and Marshall Henrichs. Text by Paul Cronin, Adam Michaels, Jeffrey Schnapp.

Radical pedagogy from Bauhaus to Black Mountain: a defining document of '60s counterculture
Maurice R. Stein and Larry Miller’s Blueprint for Counter Education is one of the defining (but neglected) works of radical pedagogy of the Vietnam War era. Originally published as a boxed set by Doubleday in 1970, the book was accompanied by large graphic posters that could serve as a portable learning environment for a new process-based model of education, and a bibliography and checklist that map patterns and relationships between radical thought and artistic practices—from the modernist avant-gardes to postmodernism, from the Bauhaus to Black Mountain College, from Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin to Buckminster Fuller and Norman O. Brown—with Herbert Marcuse and Marshall McLuhan serving as points of anchorage. Blueprint for Counter Education thus serves as a vital synthesis of the numerous intellectual currents in the countercultural debate on the radical reform of schools, universities and ways of learning. To accompany this new facsimile edition of the book and posters, an 80-page booklet features a conversation with the original Blueprint creators, Maurice R. Stein, Larry Miller and designer Marshall Henrichs, as well as essays from Jeffrey Schnapp, Paul Cronin and notes on the design by Adam Michaels of Project Projects.
Marshall Henrichs is a painter as well as a graphic designer; he studied with Richard Lindner, Walter Murch, George McNeil and Fredrico Castellon at the Pratt Institute. After graduation, he worked for several major New York publishers including Doubleday, where he served as art director. Among his editorial projects were various mainstream projects but also counterculture outliers such as Blueprint for Counter Education and Ira Einhorn's 78–187880 (Doubleday, 1972).
Larry Miller, sociologist, was a member of the editorial collectives of the New American Movement newspaper and the journal Socialist Revolution/Socialist Review. He has written about major theorists and writers such as Marx, Gramsci, Althusser and Machiavelli.
Maurice R. Stein is an American sociologist and innovator in higher education. Stein is co-recipient of the 1987 Robert and Helen Lynd Lifetime Achievement Award bestowed by the American Sociological Association’s Community and Urban Sociology Section. Retired from Brandeis University since 2002, Stein resides in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Paul Cronin is the editor of On Film-Making: An Introduction to the Craft of the Director (2004), a collection of writings by British director Alexander Mackendrick; Werner Herzog’s A Guide for the Perplexed (2014), an interview book with the German director; and Lessons with Kiarostami (2014), based on workshops conducted by Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami. His films include “Look out Haskell, it’s real!” The Making of Medium Cool (2001; re-edited 2013), Film as a Subversive Art: Amos Vogel and Cinema 16 (2003), In the Beginning was the Image: Conversations with Peter Whitehead (2006) and A Time to Stir (forthcoming, 2017), a 15-hour historical documentary about the student protests at Columbia University in 1968.
Adam Michaels is the cofounder of New York–based design studio Project Projects and the founder of Inventory Press. His work focuses on the active synthesis of typography and images—as well as editorial and design work—as a means of conveying significant content to diverse audiences. Project Projects works on books, exhibitions, identity systems and websites with clients such as the Canadian Centre for Architecture, MoMA, SALT Istanbul and Steven Holl Architects, and has been chosen twice as a finalist for the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards. The studio's work has been widely published, and its principals have lectured and taught both nationally and internationally. The third and most recent title in the Inventory Books series is The Electric Information Age Book: McLuhan/Agel/Fiore and the Experimental Paperback, by Jeffrey T. Schnapp and Adam Michaels, which was further elaborated upon as a full-length vinyl LP entitled The Electric Information Age Album.
Before moving to Harvard in 2011, Jeffrey T. Schnapp occupied the Pierotti Chair of Italian at Stanford University, where he founded the Stanford Humanities Lab in 1999. A cultural historian, designer and curator, he is the author of over 20 books and hundreds of essays. His most recent books are The Electric Information Age Book (Princeton Architectural Press, 2012); Modernitalia (Peter Lang, 2012); and Digital_Humanities (MIT Press, 2012), coauthored with Anne Burdick, Johanna Drucker, Peter Lunenfeld and Todd Presner. The Library beyond the Book, coauthored with Matthew Battles, was published by Harvard University Press in 2014. Schnapp is professor of romance literatures at Harvard, where he also teaches in the Department of Architecture at the Graduate School of Design, in addition to directing metaLAB and codirecting the Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

Marcel BroodthaersMarcel Broodthaers

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited with text by Christophe Cherix, Manuel J. Borja-Villel. Text by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Cathleen Chaffee, Jean-François Chevrier, Kim Conaty, Thierry de Duve, Rafael García Horrillo, Doris Krystof, Christian Rattemeyer, Sam Sackeroff, Teresa Velázquez, Francesca Wilmott.

The catalog for the Museum of Modern Art's acclaimed Broodthaer's exhibition

Marcel Broodthaers’ extraordinary artistic output placed him at the center of international activity during the transformative decades of the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout his career, from early objects variously made of mussel shells, eggshells and books of his own poetry, to his most ambitious project, the Musée d’Art Moderne, Département des Aigles (Museum of Modern Art, Department of Eagles), and the Décors made at the end of his life, Broodthaers occupied a unique position, often operating as both innovator and commentator. Setting a precedent for what we call installation art today, his work has had a profound influence on a broad range of contemporary artists, and he remains vitally relevant to cultural discourse at large. Published to accompany Broodthaers’ first retrospective in New York, this volume examines the artist’s work across all mediums. Essays by the exhibition organizers Christophe Cherix and Manuel Borja-Villel, along with a host of major scholars, including Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Jean François Chevrier, Thierry de Duve and Doris Krystof, provide historical and theoretical context for the artist’s work. The book also features new translations of many of Broodthaers’ texts.

Marcel Broodthaers (1924–76) worked as a poet and critic until the age of 40, when he declared himself a visual artist. Over the next 12 years, he moved between Brussels, his birth city, and Düsseldorf and London. From 1968 to 1972 Broodthaers operated the Musée d’Art Moderne, Département des Aigles, an itinerant museum devoted to the exploration of the role of the institution itself and the function of art in society.

Jennie C. Jones: CompilationJennie C. Jones: Compilation

Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co..
Edited and text by Valerie Cassel Oliver. Foreword by Bill Arning. Text by Hilton Als, Huey Copeland, George E. Lewis.

The work of Jennie C. Jones (born 1968) spans multiple mediums, from paintings, sculptures and works on paper to audio collages and immersive sound installations. Jones employs the visual languages of abstraction and minimalism to draw out the parallels and disjunctions between the history of modernism and the history of African American music, particularly jazz. This volume documenting the artist’s midcareer survey at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston includes many of her best-known works alongside new paintings and a site-specific installation. The book, whose stunning design references the formal qualities of Jones’ work, includes an extensive plate selection alongside essays by Valerie Cassel Oliver, Hilton Als and George Lewis, and an interview between Jones and art historian Huey Copeland.

An Anecdoted Topography of ChanceAn Anecdoted Topography of Chance

By Daniel Spoerri, Robert Filliou, Emmett Williams, Dieter Roth, Roland Topor.

Published by Atlas Press.
Introduction by Alastair Brotchie, Malcolm Green. Illustrated by Roland Topor.

Originally published by Something Else Press in 1966 and now acknowledged as one of the most important and entertaining artists’ books of the postwar period, An Anecdoted Topography of Chance is a unique collaborative work by four artists associated with the Fluxus and Nouveau Réalisme movements, here released in a new edition. Following a rambling conversation with his friend Robert Filliou, Daniel Spoerri one day mapped the objects lying at random on the table in his room, adding a rigorously scientific description of each. These objects subsequently evoked associations, memories and anecdotes from both the original author and his friends Filliou, Emmett Williams, Dieter Roth and Roland Topor. Many of the principal participants of Fluxus also make an appearance (texts by Higgins, Jouffroy, Kaprow, Restany and Tinguely are included, among others). An Anecdoted Topography of Chance is an archaeological game, a poem to the arbitrary, an encyclopaedia, and above all else, a celebration of friendship and creativity. The Topography personifies and predates the spirit of Fluxus and constitutes one of the strangest and most compelling insights into the artist’s life. From the banal detritus of the everyday a virtual autobiography emerges, of four perceptive, witty and exceptionally congenial artists.

The Soviet Photobook 1920-1941The Soviet Photobook 1920-1941

Published by Steidl.
Edited by Mikhail Karasik, Manfred Heiting.

The Soviet Union was unique in its dynamic use of the illustrated book as a means of propaganda. Through the form of the book, the USSR articulated its utopian (and eventually totalitarian) ideologies and expressed its absolute power through avant-garde writing and radical graphic design that was in full flower during the 1920s and 1930s.
No other country or political system advanced its cause by attracting and employing acclaimed members of the avant-garde. Among them were writers such as Semion Kirsanov, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Ilya Selvinsky, Sergei Tretyakov and Kornely Zelinsky; artist designers such as Gustav Klutsis, Valentina Kulagina, El Lissitzky, Sergei Senkin, Varvara Stepanova, Solomon Telingater and Nikolai Troshin; and photographers such as Dmitry Debabov, Vladimir Griuntal, Boris Ignatovich, Alexander Khlebnikov, Yeleazar Langman, Alexander Rodchenko and Georgy Petrusov, not to mention many of the best printing plants and bookbinders.
Gorgeously produced, edited and designed, The Soviet Photobook 1920-1941 presents 160 of the most stunning and elaborately produced photobooks from this period and includes more than 400 additional reference illustrations. The book also provides short biographies of the photobook contributors, some of whom are presented for the first time.

Kazuma Obara: Silent HistoriesKazuma Obara: Silent Histories

Published by Editorial RM.

The postwar “Japanese economic miracle” took place in the wake of incredible destruction—indiscriminate bombing by US forces during the Second World War had destroyed millions of homes, killed 330,000 Japanese citizens and injured 430,000 others. Children wounded in the war were an uncomfortable reminder of the devastation, and many chose lives of secrecy and concealment, continuing to silently struggle with their injuries and disabilities as adults. Photographer Kazuma Obara (born 1985) sheds light on these “silent histories” with a collection of sensitive portraits of six survivors interspersed with historical and personal material, including school photographs, views of Japanese cities in 1945, personal snapshots and government-issued disability cards. A powerful and moving document, Kazuma Obara: Silent Histories was originally published in a limited edition of 45 handmade copies, and is now available for the first time in a trade edition.

Not Nothing: Selected Writings by Ray Johnson 1954-1994Not Nothing: Selected Writings by Ray Johnson 1954-1994

Published by Siglio.
Edited by Elizabeth Zuba. Text by Kevin Killian.

Ray Johnson (1927–1995) blurred the boundaries of life and art, of authorship and intimacy. Correspondence is the defining character of all of Johnson’s work, particularly his mail art. Intended to be read, to be received, to be corresponded with, his letters (usually both image and textual in character) were folded and delivered to an individual reader, to be opened and read, again and again. Johnson's correspondence includes letter to friends William S. Wilson, Dick Higgins, Richard Lippold, Toby Spiselman, Joseph Cornell, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Robert Motherwell, Eleanor Antin, Germaine Green, Lynda Benglis, Arakawa and Madeline Gins, Christo, Billy Name, Jim Rosenquist and Albert M. Fine, among many others. The subjects of his correspondence ranged from the New York avant-garde (Cage, Johns, de Kooning, Duchamp) to filmmakers such as John Waters, philosophers such as Jacques Derrida and writers such as Gertrude Stein and Marianne Moore. This collection of more than 200 selected letters and writings--most of which are previously unpublished--opens a new view into the sprawling, multiplicitous nature of Johnson’s art, revealing not only how he created relationships, glyphs and puzzles in connecting words, phrases, people and ideas, but also something about the elusive Johnson himself. In a 1995 article in The New York Times, Roberta Smith wrote: "Make room for Ray Johnson, whose place in history has been only vaguely defined. Johnson’s beguiling, challenging art has an exquisite clarity and emotional intensity that makes it much more than simply a remarkable mirror of its time, although it is that, too."

A Retrospective

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Susanne Pfeffer. Text by Paul Chan, Tony Conrad, Birgit Hein, Bruce Jenkins, Branden W. Joseph, Helen Marten, Jonas Mekas, Melissa Ragona, Paul Sharits.

American avant-garde filmmaker Paul Sharits (1943–93)—a protagonist of the "structural film" movement, alongside Michael Snow, Tony Conrad and others—was internationally acclaimed for his installations of endless film loops, multiple projections and experimental soundtracks. This volume spans his oeuvre, from his early structural films of the 1960s and ‘70s, and his unique film spaces and graphic works, to the little-known paintings, through a large-format image section and essays by theorists, artists and Sharits’ contemporaries. Including previously unpublished works and new research, Paul Sharits: Catalogué Raisonné 1962–1992 is completed with an illustrated catalogue raisonné of Sharits’ work between 1965 and 1992.

Gordon Parks: Collected WorksGordon Parks: Collected Works

Published by Steidl.
Edited by Peter W. Kunhardt, Jr. and Paul Roth. Text by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Deborah Willis, Maurice Berger, Barbara Baker Burrows, Paul Roth, and Gordon Parks.

This five-volume collection surveys five decades of Gordon Parks' photography. It is the most extensive publication to document his legendary career. Widely recognized as the most important and influential African-American photographer of the twentieth century, Parks combined a unique documentary and artistic style with a profound commitment to social justice. Working first for the Farm Security Administration and later for Life magazine, he specialized in extended narrative picture stories on difficult subject matter. Covering crime, poverty, segregation, the politics of race and class and controversial personalities, Parks became legendary for his ability to meld penetrating insight with a lyrical aesthetic. He was thus able to introduce a broad and diverse public to people, issues and ideas they might otherwise have ignored. Parks was remarkably versatile, travelling the world to photograph news events and fashion, as well as the worlds of art, literature, music, theatre and film. Later in life, he reconceived his vision in fundamentally personal and poetic terms, producing color photographs that were allusive rather than descriptive, symbolic rather than literal.
