American Modern By Thomas O’Brien With Lisa Light Photographs by Laura Resen Designer and merchant, collector and tastemaker, Thomas O’Brien has made a career of translating cool notions of modernism into an easy and generous array of modern styles that anyone can attain. Now he introduces readers to a range of those styles—from casual to formal, vintage to urban—alongside elegant photography and charming design stories.

O’Brien carefully describes the

design process of his chosen projects, including a downtown New York City loft, a traditional Connecticut estate, and a converted schoolhouse in eastern Long Island. He explains not only what was at work in each project to create an essentially American style, but how readers can import those practices to their own homes and personal design sensibilities. Important design principles such as architectural authenticity, color relationships, correctness of scale, and a practical narrative that reads like a

The long-anticipated monograph on the co-creator of the groundbreaking comic book Love and Rockets

By Todd Hignite Introduction by Alison Bechdel In 1981 three Mexican-American brothers self-published their first comic book, Love and Rockets, and “changed American cartooning forever” according to Publishers Weekly. Over 25 years later it is still being published to critical and commercial success.

Jaime Hernandez’s moving stories chronicle the lives of

some of the most memorable and fully formed characters the comics world has ever seen. His female protagonists, masterfully delineated with humor, candor, and breathtaking realism, come to life within California’s Mexican-American culture and punk milieu. In April 2006 Hernandez began serializing his work in the New York Times Magazine—all of which is collected here in full color. The notoriously private artist has opened his archives for the first time, revealing never-before-seen sketches, childhood drawings, and unpublished work, alongside his most famous Love and Rockets material, much of it photographed in color from the original art.
