illuminate their world. The first ABRAMS PRESS title will be Michael Ruhlman’s Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America, to be published in May 2017. Early praise for the book from Alton Brown, David Kamp, Susan Orlean, and Ruth Reichl has confirmed our belief that Ruhlman’s book is a timely and provocative look at a subject that touches all our lives. Our Fall ’17 titles on ABRAMS PRESS include an innovative illustrated memoir by the brilliant graphic designer Paul Sahre; the definitive critical companion to Breaking Bad by noted television critic Alan Sepinwall; an irresistible follow-up book by bestselling knitting author and expert Clara Parkes; and two paperback releases of favorite recent hardcovers. For some time, we’ve been looking for a new way to bring more great writing to our lists, branching out from areas that make up our distinctive illustrated book program, and the launch of ABRAMS PRESS is just the beginning. You can expect to see a smart, diverse line of text-driven books made with the same artful quality you’ve come to expect from ABRAMS in the months and years ahead. We hope you share our excitement and look forward to building an even larger community of readers with you.

PUB MONTH: SEPTEMBER PHOTOGRAPHY ince the early 1990s, Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968) has established himself as one of the most exciting and innova-

into the boundaries of the photographic medium and a preoccupation with the process of photography itself. This new book, which accompanied an exhibition at Tate Modern, examines Tillmans’s evolving practice, showcasing his photography but also his video, digital slide projections, publications, and recorded music. Essays offer an overarching view of Tillmans’s work, from the physical materiality of his art to space and installation to his use of abstraction, and his relationship with politics and society, with particular emphasis on events of the last 15 years. The book is designed by the artist, and has a strong visual identity. Photography and video stills are beautifully reproduced in full color while, in keeping with the artist’s nonhierarchical approach to media, documentary material is also highlighted. Chris Dercon is director emeritus, Tate Modern. Helen Sainsbury is head of programme realisation, Tate Modern.

he last century has seen a dramatic shift in gender

9 781849 765039

and sexual identities for both men and women,

reflected in artistic experimentation as artists have sought to challenge social conventions and push the boundaries of what has been deemed acceptable. The result is a wealth of deeply emotive and powerful art intended to express a range of desires and experiences but also to question, criticize, and provoke dialogue.

This generously illustrated book showcases the breadth

and depth of queer art from around the world since 1900, exploring identity, eroticism, relationships, hidden desires, love, and gender, revealing how experiences have also been shaped by class and ethnicity, and how art itself has played a key role in changing attitudes and crystalizing identities in different historic and contemporary contexts.

he temples of Khajuraho are one of the great wonders of India. Built between about 850

and 1150, Khajuraho is renowned as much for the elegance of its architecture as for the sensuality of its sculpture. Once an important political and religious center, it is thought to have contained up to 95 Hindu and Jain temples, but today, only 25 survive—many with stunning depictions of human sexuality. The area has undergone restoration since being rediscovered in the early 19th century, and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, acclaimed scholar Gilles Béguin leads readers through a tour of these amazing temples, all newly photographed by Iago Corazza.

Gilles Béguin, former director of the Musée Cernuschi, Musée des Arts de l’Asie de la Ville de Paris, was previously head of the Nepalese and Tibetan Buddhism collections at the Musée Guimet, Paris. Iago Corazza is a photographer, journalist, and filmmaker.

exas, 1872. With the Civil War over, exploration has

9 781910 593400

resumed in the territories to the west of the Mississippi, and

the geologist Stingley is looking to capitalize. Together with

photographer Oscar Forrest, who catalogues the terrain, and their young assistant, Milton, Stingley strikes out into territory that might one day support a new civilization. But this is no virgin land. As the frontiersmen move west, it becomes clear that the expedition won’t go unchallenged. Stingley has led them into a hostile region: the native Comanches’ last bastion of resistance. In a spectacular landscape, under the looming threat of attack, the boundaries between two worlds dissolve. As social

conventions disappear and personal inhibitions go into retreat, an intimate relationship develops between Oscar and Milton. The Smell of Starving Boys is an intense Western about the clash of two worlds: one old, one new; one defined by rationality and technology, the other by shamanism and nature. Loo Hui Phang writes for film, theater, and comics. She is the author of numerous books. Frederik Peeters is the author of Blue Pills, Aama, and Sandcastle, among other books.

or the high-flying, heavy-drinking advertising boss

Tom Banbury, the art of persuasion relies on an

9 781910 593134

infiltration of the consumer’s mind. In the case of his colleague and confidante Nikos Gazidis, the overdeveloped sense of empathy that makes him so well suited to the

business has resulted in a strange psychiatric condition. Nick has unwittingly crashed into the consciousness of his boss. While Tom drinks to forget the troubles of his earthly life, Nick is forced to confront a past that is not his own: a childhood scarred by the small wars waged by an abusive father—and by the events that brought these battles to a close. When Nick enters the panicked silence of the Abbey, a fortress for the rich and unstable, his sister guards him from the visiting Tom Banbury. But can this peculiar bond be broken? Or has Nikos Gazidis taken an empathetic leap too far? Deborah Levy is the author of the Booker Prizeshortlisted novels Swimming Home and Hot Milk. Andrzej Klimowski is emeritus professor of visual communication at the Royal College of Art in London.

ALL ROYALTIES TO BE DONATED TO NONPROFITS AFFILIATED WITH THE MARCH

O

n January 21, 2017, five million people in 82 countries and on all seven continents stood up with one voice. The Women’s March began with one cause, women’s rights, but quickly became a movement around the many issues that were hotly debated during the 2016 U.S. presidential race—immigration, health care, environmental protections, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, freedom of religion, and workers’ rights, among others. In the mere 66 days between the election and inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States, 673 sister marches sprang up across the country and the world. ABRAMS Image presents Why I March to honor the movement, give back to it, and promote future activism in the same vein.
