Be amazed by 'Eva Hesse: Oberlin Drawings'

Featured spread is from Eva Hesse: Oberlin Drawings. An extraordinary 2019 title, this 428-page collection of more than 350 drawings in the collection of the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College is a two-inch-thick brick of a book with creamy, matte paper and exquisite reproductions. "Rather than saying that drawing expresses Hesse's deepest feelings," Briony Fer writes, "maybe we could say that it was a way of articulating her frustration—that is, the shortfall between the wanting and the having, the thwarting and the satisfaction, that is vital to creative life. In this sense the need to draw is—not so simply—the drive to carry on making work. Doing things on paper was not a substitute for doing supposedly more important things like make a painting or a sculpture—but what Hesse did because she was an artist (and not just a doodler)."

New from Reel Art Press! The definitive book on French New Wave international poster design

Clément Hurel's 1960 poster for Jean-Luc Godard's A bout de soufflé, aka Breathless, is reproduced from French New Wave: A Revolution in Design, a staff pick Holiday Gift Book for the cinephile in your life. One of two very different posters produced by Hurel for this singular film, it is an exquisite example of photomontage in poster design, according to Alison Elangasinghe's text on the work. Hurel uses a seemingly simple stylistic device—rotating the original photo of Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg kissing, as well as the film's title, by ninety degrees counterclockwise—to great effect. "This twist is jarring and intended: is the couple fighting or loving each other?"

New Release! 'French New Wave: A Revolution in Design'

This 1965 poster for Jean-Luc Godard's dystopian sci-fi thriller Alphaville was produced by painter, illustrator, comic and collage artist Andrzej Krajewski for the Polish release of the film. It is reproduced from staff favorite Holiday Gift Book, French New Wave: A Revolution in Design, featuring over 150 posters from more than 20 countries, organized A–Z by designer. "As a mass medium in Poland, the poster was under state censorship yet the individual artist had a remarkable degree of creative freedom," Alison Elangasinghe writes. "The poster as artform flourished in Poland from the mid-1950s onwards. Free of capitalist constraints, images of the stars—usually a big selling point in the West—were subordinated to highly original concepts. This 'Polish poster school' of artists that emerged effectively turned the street into their own gallery. Designs were striking and colorful; often disturbing and surreal; frequently poetic and humorous, with a vitality in stark contrast to the turgid backdrop of the Eastern Bloc."
