ABRAMS The Art of Books

Dear Reader, WHAT’S IN A NAME? For many years, our books have appeared under two primary banners: Abrams (and its sub-imprints), and Stewart, Tabori & Chang (STC). Abrams has been the traditional home of books on art, photography, fashion, performing arts, pop culture, humor, and comics and graphic novels. STC, since its incorporation into Abrams in 2000, has been our lifestyle brand, led by cooking, craft, and interior design, with periodic forays into garden design, health, beauty, and other related subjects. These two imprint identities have served our publishing well, as both Abrams and STC are and have been established and well-respected names. But in today’s world, traditional boundaries between all kinds of creative fields are blurring, and we see this as an opportunity to unite and strengthen our book publishing under the single strong mark of Abrams. Starting with this Fall 2016 publishing list, all the adult books we publish carry Abrams, Abrams Image, or Abrams ComicArts on their spines and title pages. Our recently launched gift and stationery line continues as Abrams Noterie. Existing, in-print STC books will, of course, still be available. Abrams was founded in 1949 and was soon established as the pre-eminent publisher of art books in America. Over time, our mission and profile have broadened well beyond the conventional definition of art, but art remains in our DNA and informs everything we do in our approach to publishing, from subject matter to design to fine attention to detail in the selection of materials—the paper, printing, and binding of our books. This spirit carries over to the way we bring our books to market as well. We’re excited to announce that in the year ahead we will integrate the STC program fully into Abrams. Look for our campaigns around The Art of Food & Drink, The Art of Craft, The Art of Style, and more. In all we do we will honor The Art of Books. We hope you find many things here that pique your interest, and we look forward to bringing you well-written, thoughtfully edited, visually arresting, artfully made Abrams books for many years to come. And we thank you for your support and feedback. Michael Sand Vice President, Publisher, Adult Trade ABRAMS

A History of Pictures F R O M T H E C AV E TO T H E C O M P U T E R S C R E E N ■ ■ BY DAV I D H O C K N E Y A N D M A R T I N G AY F O R D

A groundbreaking approach to art from a great artist

A

S E LLING POINTS picture, says David Hockney, is the only way that we can communicate what we see. Here, in a collabora-

tion with art critic Martin Gayford, he explores the many

ways that artists have pictured the world, sharing sparkling insights and ideas that will delight every art lover and art maker. Readers who thrilled to Hockney’s Secret Knowledge know that he has an uncanny ability to get into the minds of artists. In A History of Pictures he covers far more ground, getting at the roots of visual expression and technique through hundreds of images—from cave paintings to frames from movies—that are reproduced. It’s a joyful celebration of one of humanity’s oldest impulses.

■■ A readable and richly illustrated survey of art for all readers ■■ David Hockney is one of the world’s most popular artists, constantly in the public eye for his work and his ideas ■■ Secret Knowledge, Hockney’s previous book on art making, was published in 16 languages and has sold more than 350,000 copies

With accompanying lyrical essays about homes and their occupants by the famed writer Valentine Lawford (Horst’s partner in work and life), the book is a virtual who’s who of society, politics, and the arts in the mid-20th century.

Mysterious and hermetic by nature, he spent his life living and working in a small New England village, but was likely washed out to sea in the winter of 1962—or possibly fell penniless into an abandoned wishing well shaft around 1978. No body was ever found.

lives by thieving, fighting, begging, and stealing rides on cargo trains. Sungju richly re-creates his scabrous story, depicting what it was like for a boy alone to create a new family with his gang, his “brothers”; to be hungry and to fear arrest, imprisonment, and even execution. This riveting memoir allows young readers to learn about other cultures where freedoms they take for granted do not exist. Sungju Lee speaks across Europe, Asia, and North America about his experiences and about North Korean political social issues. He lives in South Korea but studies in England.

ainter A. E. Backus (1906–1990) portrayed an unspoiled Florida that has made his paintings

synonymous with the state: backcountry terrain is often

described as “Backus landscape,” emotive clouds as “Backus sky,” and translucent waves as “Backus water.” As more and more of the state’s wilderness is lost to

9 780865 653320

development, Backus’s paintings emerge as poetic testaments of Florida’s lost paradise. Defining his artistic roots as “part Cracker and part Monet,” Backus was drawn to tropical nature as defined by light, which he rendered using complementary colors. His avant-garde use of a palette knife to create entire compositions produced paintings that combined a sensitive observation of nature with gestural paint application. Backus excelled at capturing the essence of traditional Florida: rustic fishing camps, magnificent beaches, tidal rivers fringed with palms and mangroves, and the abrupt changes in the weather that characterize Florida’s tropical light to both natives and visitors. This is a lush celebration of the life and work of a remarkable regional painter. Natasha Kuzmanovic, an art historian and conservator, has contributed to numerous publications including African Images: Art and Ornament and The Influence of Paris: European and American Sculpture 1830–1930.

9 780865 653351

relax and lounge; they also took the temperature of Paris in the late 1960s. Fascinated by the possibilities of new materials, Paulin was both a modernist and a traditionalist, a designer who took equal care designing ordinary objects such as fans, razors, and fondue pots as he did outfitting the private quarters of French presidents Pompidou and Mitterand. This vibrantly illustrated book draws from previously unpublished archives a wealth of vivid drawings, models, and photographs to reveal the restless energy of this midcentury icon, whose works are finding new popularity today.

Monn designs events to be “shared, lived, and felt” by everyone there. Monn’s three favorite words—authenticity, scale, and detail—inform every chapter of his book, following him from classic New York nights to events around the world and back again to the most private rites of passage, including entertaining at home. How to do this yourself? It means considering your home as not just rooms, but instead as “a living environment,” and not thinking of a birthday as a party, but rather “a milestone of accomplishment and growth.” With text by novelist Susan Fales-Hill and a rare foreword by venerable fashion photographer Bill Cunningham, in this volume Monn draws from his personal archive of 20,000 event photographs to reveal the unique beauty of each event. David Monn’s clients include social lions across the country as well as a Who’s Who of brands and institutions. Susan Fales-Hill is a novelist and contributor to major magazines. Bill Cunningham is the New York Times’ legendary fashion and social events photographer.

eaturing some of the most exciting artworks of the 20th century, this is the first

book to explore the rich history of conceptual

art in Britain during a key period in innovation, from the mid-1960s to the election of Margaret Thatcher in 1979. While the early works of this period challenged art’s traditional boundaries, by the mid-1970s, focus had shifted away from issues of art and individual experience toward questions of politics and identity, using the languages of documentary, propaganda, and advertising in the service of action. The result was a radical moment in British art that ignited new developments in various media: text, sculpture, photography, film, and print. With previously unpublished archival material and essays by key experts, this book reveals the origins—and legacy—of Britain’s conceptual art movement. Andrew Wilson is curator of modern and contemporary British art and archives at Tate Britain.

This volume includes works by the most celebrated artists associated with the movement—not just Pollock, Rothko, and de Kooning, but also Kline, Newman, Still, Smith, Reinhardt, and Gorky. Sculptors such as David Smith and photographers such as Aaron Siskind are also represented. With texts by well-known experts in the field, this is a landmark publication.

follows Casement’s efforts to gain German support for an independent Ireland, his drive to recruit volunteers, and his subsequent arrest in County Kerry. This politically charged and enlightening graphic novel pictures Casement’s three-day interrogation at Scotland Yard, his incarceration at the Tower of London, and his time in the dock at the Old Bailey. Hopes of a reprieve begin to vanish when his private diaries are seized and circulated by police, but Casement’s defiance never wavers: there, in the courtroom, he delivers one of the greatest speeches of all time.
