he year 2013 is the 50th anniversary year of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, who still ranks as one of the top five presidents in every major annual survey. To

commemorate the man and his time in office, the New York Times has authorized a book, edited by Richard Reeves, based on its unsurpassed coverage of the tumultuous Kennedy era. The Civil Rights Movement, the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile

Crisis, Vietnam, the space program, the Berlin Wall—all are covered in articles by the era’s top reporters, among them David Halberstam, Russell Baker, and James Reston. Also included are new essays by leading historians such as Robert Dallek and Terry Golway, and by Times journalists, including Sam Tanenhaus, Scott Shane, Alessandra Stanley, and Roger Cohen. With more than 125 color and black-and-white photos, this is the ultimate volume on one of history’s most fascinating figures. Richard Reeves, senior lecturer at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at USC, is a presidential historian and syndicated columnist who has received dozens of awards for his work in print, television, and film.

Previously unpublished photos, artwork, and ephemera complement a booklength conversation between Anderson and award-winning critic Matt Zoller Seitz. The interview and images are woven together in a meticulously designed book that captures the spirit of his films: melancholy and playful, wise and childish—and thoroughly original. Matt Zoller Seitz, a Pulitzer Prize finalist for criticism, currently writes for New York magazine. He lives in Brooklyn.

A

new generation of urban bootleggers is distilling whiskey at home, and cocktail enthusiasts have embraced

the nuances of brown liquors. Written by the founders of

Kings County Distillery, New York City’s first distillery since Prohibition, this spirited, illustrated book explores America’s age-old love affair with whiskey. It begins with chapters on whiskey’s history and culture from 1640 to today, when the DIY trend and the classic cocktail craze have conspired to make it the next big thing. For those thirsty for practical information, the book next provides a detailed, easy-to-follow guide to safe home distilling, complete with a list of supplies, step-by-step instructions, and helpful pictures, anecdotes, and tips. The final section focuses on the contemporary whiskey scene, featuring a list of microdistillers, cocktail and food recipes from the country’s hottest mixologists and chefs, and an opinionated

fter George Lucas finished work on Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, he wanted to look back on the Star Wars saga through an entirely new point

of view: isolating stills, or frames, from each of the six Star Wars films, focusing on them intensely as works of photography and design, and reproducing them in a book. For two years Lucas went through more than 200,000 frames per film, editing more than 1 million frames down to the 1,416 images that now comprise

evident in every frame of every film. Star Wars: Frames brings together Lucas’s personal shot-by-shot selections into a lavishly designed two-volume hardcover set—one volume for the Original Trilogy and one volume for the Prequel Trilogy. For collectors and fans, Star Wars: Frames is the ultimate look on this grand project devoted to a cinematic phenomenon—and the ultimate Star Wars collector’s tome.

rom the remarkable Art Brut Collection in Lausanne, Switzerland, comes Vehicles, the

first book in an exciting new series. The Art Brut

Collection has created the Biennale de l’Art Brut, a project that capitalizes on the diversity of this superb collection of more than 60,000 works by grouping a selection of them into themed exhibitions. As movement was a recurring theme in Art Brut, the first of these shows, titled Vehicles, features Motooka locomotives, Franz Kernbeis’s bicycle, Willem van Genk’s airships, and Auguste Forestier’s boats. The works represented here highlight a variety of approaches to motion in the form of sculptures, drawings, and constructions by more than 50 artists. Sarah Lombardi is an art historian and has been director of the Art Brut Collection since 2012. Michel Thévoz founded the Art Brut Collection in 1976. Anic Zanzi is an art historian and has been a curator at the Art Brut Collection since 2003.
