Never Wrong: Dan Nadel's Best-Of Spring 2015

Maybe you know him as the daring Publisher of PictureBox; maybe as the curator and editor of the 2014 art bestseller 'What Nerve.' Or maybe you've met with him in his role as Key Accounts Sales Director. Whichever, Dan Nadel is always right.

1. Above all, Henri Cartier-Bresson’s The Decisive Moment. This slipcased facsimile of the most important photobook of the 20th century is magnificent in every way – from the original cover by Matisse to the impeccable printing by STEIDL. We are sold out of our initial shipment but expect more in April.

2. Joel Meyerowitz: Retrospective: This is a very handsome and zippy book covering all of Meyerowitz’s famed career. A rare photobook to curl up with, and eminently gift-able.

3. Futurist Depero: Forunato Depero produced joyous work in the Italy of the 1910-1930s. For the first time in English, here’s a publication that takes a deep dive deep into everything from advertising to textiles to architecture to painting. A whole aesthetic world between hardcovers.

4. The Art of Smallfilms: This one’s for anyone interested in psychedelia, crafting, or animation. It’s a lovingly produced monograph on the 1960s-1970s Jim Henson Company of England, Smallfilms. Page after page of incredible hand-made puppets and sets take you on a heady trip into a universe of British whimsy.

5. German Pop: OK, I grant you, perhaps not a catchy title, but this is a gloriously oversized compilation of more than a dozen German Pop artists, perfectly selected and reproduced. The flip side of sunny American Pop, and rarely seen on these shores. Don’t miss it. Limited stock.

6. Type 42: The outsider art and photography sensation – a collection of anonymously taken and annotated polaroids of women on television screens in the 1960s. Ghostly and beautiful. Limited stock.

7. Charlie Chaplin: The Keystone Album: This is going to be on every best-of list of 2015: A facsimile of a 1941 photo album containing prints off negatives of Chaplin’s earliest films, accompanied by hand-written descriptive text. As close as you can get to Chaplin in print.

8. The Dawn of Technicolor: This authoritative book on the early years of color is a bright skyburst of hues to celebrate Technicolor’s centennial. In-depth and scholarly texts combined with lush and plentiful reproductions.

9. And finally, two great tomes back in print: Semina Culture: One of the best art movement books every published, and the authoritative text on Wallace Berman and his circle, which included artists such as Bruce Conner, Cameron, and Jess.

10. And: Subway: Bruce Davidson’s classic New York photobook is back with a new edition.
