'Karl Blossfeldt: Variations' is NEW from Lars Müller

Featured image is reproduced from Karl Blossfeldt: Variations, Lars Müller Publishers' 416-page new release investigating how the Berlin artist, sculptor and teacher's turn-of-the-century plant photographs were disseminated in the popular media of the time, from magazines, to art and pattern books. "In the late 1920s a German book of plant photographs with the suggestive title Urformen der Kunst became an international bestseller," author Ulrike Meyer Stump writes. "Albert Einstein owned a copy, as did Kandinsky, Klee, Calder and Henry Moore. The producer of these highly successful botanical images, Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932), trained as a sculptor and taught “Modeling after Living Plants” at the School of Applied Arts in Berlin from 1899 to 1930. He began photographing plants in the late nineteenth century as illustrations, patterns, and as teaching material for his classes, producing thousands of photographs in a highly uniform manner over the decades. A handsome selection from this voluminous material elegantly printed in photogravure was published in 1928, shortly before his retirement. With this publication, which was followed by countless new editions over the years, Blossfeldt the sculptor became world-famous as a photographer… This book traces the paths that Blossfeldt’s legendary plant motifs described—as specimens, illustrations, patterns, analogies, models, and abstractions—from their creation to their entry into the canonical history of photography, with occasional excursions into their reception in more recent art and design."

'The Sleeve Should Be Illegal' is a new release this week!

Featured image, Giovanni Bellini's St. Francis in the Desert (ca. 1476–78), is reproduced from The Frick Collection's superb new release, The Sleeve Should Be Illegal, co-published with DelMonico Books. A book like no other on our list, this highly anticipated hardcover collects 61 reflections on works in the Frick’s preeminent collection by some of today's most riveting cultural luminaries, spanning from André Aciman to Roz Chast, Abbi Jacobson to Bryan Ferry, and Jonathan Lethem (whose text inspired the title) to Julie Mehretu, Susan Minot, Wangechi Mutu and Edmund White, to name just a few, with an Introduction by Adam Gopnik. "The evocations of pictures contained in this book remind us of the astonishing truth that the timelier art is, the more timeless it becomes," Gopnik writes, "the more lodged in one window, the more available now. Gallery going is the only reliable form of time travel we possess. You are here, the limited map in the mall explains to us. You are everywhere, the pictures at the Frick insist. And we are."

"Nothing we have ever done before will ever be good enough again."

"Nothing we have ever done before will ever be good enough again."

As we continue to celebrate the inauguration of Kamala Harris, the first woman Vice President of the United States, we are delighted to feature these spreads from Primary Information's new facsimile edition of A Documentary HerStory of Women Artists in Revolution, the 1971 compendium of texts and manifestos from women artists on gender and race issues in cultural institutions. "I firmly believe the 70's is the decade of the woman," Muriel Castanis said in a 1973 speech published here in the form of preface to the revised edition. "The women's art movement is revolutionary because it affects every level of the art culture. You especially know the valuable contribution art makes to society's health, and for that health we need the contribution of women for they can reach worlds that men never knew existed, self-imprisoned as they have been in their protective fortress. What W.A.R. began is in your hands now. Now, you are W.A.R.
I heard a marvelous quote for this new year. 'Nothing we have ever done before will ever be good enough again."
We couldn’t agree more.

Today, we celebrate!
