Karine Laval: Poolscapes
"Through the eyes of Karine Laval, life by the pool becomes a fantastical escape from it all." —Miss Rosen, Feature Shoot. In this volume, the rising French photographer picks up on all the vivid visual cues surrounding a host of international pools, even as the pool itself becomes a metaphor, a mirror of sorts, whose surface both reflects and distorts the surrounding world and her human subjects. The work "shows an evolution in tone and depth, from the real to the imagined, from the photographic to the painterly," according to L’Oeil de la Photographie. Sumptuous, playful, sexy, serene: the photographs "bring a variety of emotions to the fore, but the one that stands out the most is the way it entices the reader to jump into the closest body of water. And stay there." —Lbanya Maitra, Musee.

Rachel Cobb: Mistral
A poetic first monograph from New York-based photojournalist Rachel Cobb, who challenged herself to capture the capricious, invisible, ever-present winds of her second home in Southern France. One of People magazine's 10 Best Art Books of the year and a PDN Notable Photo Book 2018. Reviewd in Vogue, Musée, Photo District News and LensCulture, where W. Scott Olsen writes, "Mistral is among those great photobooks that provoke a creative imagining in the viewer’s heart and head.… Mistral is an entertaining, informed and wise photobook. If I were writing Hollywood hype, I’d use phrases like 'instant classic.'"

The Swimming Pool in Photography
Featured on four 2018 Holiday Gift Guides, including Vulture, Kirkus, New York Magazine and People—which called The Swimming Pool in Photography "an improbably mesmerizing look at swimming pools and their patrons through the ages." This gorgeous hardcover featuring work by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Joel Meyerowitz, Martin Parr, Alec Soth and others was reviewed by W, AnOther, CNN Style, Vanity Fair, Cool Hunting, Paris Review and the Wall Street Journal, to name a few. LA Weekly called it "a watery lens through which to view class, gender, culture, fashion, art, nationalism, economics and ecology."

Spomenik Monument Database
It doesn't get much weirder or more interesting than this. FUEL's guidebook to the highly idiosyncratic communist monuments of the former Yugoslavia (with a beautifully designed dustjacket that doubles as a pull-out map with exact geographic coordinates for each spomenik) is virtually addictive. According to Metropolis magazine, the author "is punctilious in laying out the particulars of the design and construction of these structures, whose uncanny forms create a kind of visual 'vocabulary of the revolution,' while Milly Burroughs of AnOther Man calls the 80-plus Brutalist monuments "awe-inspiring."
