he next installment in the bestselling “Selby” series, Fashionable Selby explores the kaleidoscopic

world of fashion, featuring profiles of today’s most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more. The subjects include a mix of the avant-garde, the traditional, the must-haves, and the totally unexpected. Chapters on individual artists bring

readers inside their studios, workshops, and homes, and include Selby’s signature photographs and watercolors of not only the artists and their environments, but also the things that inspire them, the materials they use, their creative process, the people who work alongside them, and the final pieces. From the showroom of one of the Antwerp Six to the studios of Central St. Martins in London to a punk knitter in Brooklyn, Selby captures some of fashion’s biggest names, rising stars, and bestkept secrets. Todd Selby is an interiors, fashion, and portrait photographer and illustrator. His photographs can regularly be seen in Vogue, British Vogue, Le Monde’s M Magazine, D Magazine, and more. He lives in Brooklyn. Simon Doonan is creative ambassador for Barneys New York and the author of The Asylum: A collage of couture reminiscences . . . and hysteria. He lives in New York City with his husband, Jonathan Adler, and Liberace, their Norwich terrier.

a fashion designer, Renoma (b. 1940) was a pioneer of France’s own pop style, known as yé-yé. He revolutionized 1960s fashionand went on to revolutionize photography. His suits and blazers bore the unmistakable mark of a man who broke old-school fashion rules and shattered all the stereotypes. He is a man who defined his own creative universe, modographie (fashion + photography), at the crossroads between fashion and photography. He retouches, composes, and plays with his images until they are completely unreal creations—and completely intriguing. This book evokes the world of Renoma and the personalities with whom he has surrounded himself. An icon of Parisian high society, he has mixed with, dressed, and photographed French stars such as Serge Gainsbourg and Catherine Deneuve, and everyone who is anyone shops at his famous boutique. In this book, Renoma’s creations and influences, as well as his thoroughly original work, are explored and pictured. Gabriel Bauret is an independent exhibition curator and author who specializes in photography. He regularly works with La Maison européenne de la Photographie.

n her newest book, Lara Spencer teaches us how to navigate and negotiate the tricky world of flea

markets. taking readers to her favorite haunts across the northeast, Lara tackles eight common design

dilemmas in eight different homes—and solves them by finding and restoring flea-market finds to show that you can achieve a gorgeous space with value for your money. Mirroring the setup of her nine-part hgtV special, at the end of the process, should you wish to part with your find, she will show you the best ways to flip it and make some cash. Lara also tackles problems that many of us struggle with in our homes—too little space, too much stuff, and out-of-date design—all in her witty and charming style. Lara Spencer is the author of the New York Times bestselling book I Brake for Yard Sales. She is an anchor on Good Morning America and the host of Flea Market Flip on hgtV. She lives in connecticut and new york city.

Most of the book’s 100 wholly vegetarian recipes call for only three or four ingredients and require very few steps, resulting in dishes that are fresh, wholesome, delicious, and stunning. among the delightful recipes are eggplant tacos with brie and cilantro, rosemary shortbread, and blackberry negroni. Vibrant photographs, complemented by erin’s own fanciful watercolor illustrations and hand lettering, showcase the rustic simplicity of the dishes. part cookbook, part art book, The Forest Feast will be as comfortable in the kitchen as on the coffee table. photographer and artist Erin gleeson lives in an idyllic cabin near San Francisco, california, where she paints beautiful watercolors, cooks from her cSa box, and writes her beloved food blog, the Forest Feast, and a weekly “delish dish” column for Better Homes and Gardens.

Her work is characterized by a variation in materials, from braided, twisted rice paper to acrylic paintings to black-and-white temperas and a series of paintings using brick dust. During the height of her artistic powers, her work often focused on the visual component of language—using letters, words, and phonetic combinations to highlight the gestural and “sudden semantic value” of the written word. After her death in 1988 her work was shown extensively around the world, culminating in a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 2009.

But many important works have disappeared over the last century in a variety of ways, including war, theft, natural catastrophe, and carelessness. Most significantly, loss itself has been a major theme within modern

Grouped into 10 sections—Discarded, Missing, Rejected, Attacked, Destroyed, Erased, Ephemeral, Transient, Unrealized, and Stolen—this unique book surveys 40 case studies, looking at the stories behind lost works of art by artists such as Kandinsky, Miró, Kahlo, Christo, Keith Haring, and including Michael Landy’s 2001 project Break Down, in which he systematically destroyed every one of his possessions himself.

reputation for accuracy and speed. His extensive travels resulted in more than 2,600 drawings and watercolors, ranging from pure landscape to highly valuable scenes of country life of the day.

(1921–1990) was one of the most significant artists

in the history of abstraction. Between 1955 and 1960, he

9 788874 396658

developed an extraordinary series of 75 paintings called Coloritmos (Colorhythms), one of his major contributions to the field of painting. Painted with Duco, a shiny industrial lacquer applied with a spray gun or roller, the Colorhythms are large-scale compositional modules executed on rectangular support structures. In these works, Otero succeeded in emphasizing rhythm and color over form; as a consequence of optical intensity, chromatic vibration, and the suggestion of rhythmic movement, the pictures seem to expand dynamically outward. This illuminating book, the first dedicated to Colorhythms, evaluates their place in Otero’s practice and in the context of international geometric abstraction. rina carvajal is an independent curator and critic based in Miami who is presently a guest curator for the Instituto de Arte Contemporânea (IAC) in São Paulo and the Instituto Moreira Salles in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
