Labels of Empire

Textile Trademarks: Windows into India in the Time of the Raj Susan Meller

It was said that at one time Great Britain clothed the world. In the 1880s, when the British textile industry was at its most prosperous to date, much of the world’s population wore clothing made from fabric produced in the mills of Lancashire. From 1910 to 1913 alone, seven billion yards of cloth were folded, stamped, labeled, and baled. Most of this output was for export—with 40 percent of it shipped to India. In order to differentiate their goods, British textile manufacturers and their agents had illustrated paper labels known as “shipper’s tickets” pasted to the faceplate of each piece of folded cloth sold into the competitive Indian market. Designed to appeal to the local people, and printed and registered in Manchester, these brightly colored images further helped to establish a company’s brand. Hindu gods, native animals, scenes from the great Indian epics—the Mahabharata and Ramayana—and views of everyday life were common subjects. In a sense a form of premium, they provided the consumer with an additional incentive to buy the goods of a particular firm.

Organized by subject, from “Gods and Goddesses” to “Swaraj and Swadeshi,” Labels of Empire begins with the late 19th-century heyday of British textile manufacturing and closes with Indian independence in 1947. By combining visual narrative, magical realism, popular culture, and history in a way never done before, this book gives an unprecedented view of the British textile industry during the time of the Raj—and its remarkably successful use of Paper labels as trademarks. Look inside... Author Susan Meller is co-author of Textile Designs: Two Hundred Years of European and American Patterns (Abrams, 1991); author of Russian Textiles: Printed Cloth for the Bazaars of Central Asia (Abrams, 2007) and Silk and Cotton: Textiles from the Central Asia that was (Abrams, 2013; La Martinière, 2013); and contributing author to Colors of the Oasis: Central Asian Ikats (The Textile Museum, 2010).

Departures

A Journey with India Shaun Fynn

Nowhere is the human condition more apparent than in India, a window to life, a window to all. Departures presents a journey through place, life, and our preparations for departure from the material to the ethereal. To journey with India is to reflect, a portal to the experiences of a universal human condition, Departures weaves together a sometimes-haunting story of modernity and urbanization with an ancient, diverse, and complex land. A work in the humanist and social realist genre of photography, Departures reflects on the twenty-first-century urban stage contrasting the gritty realism of urban life, work and the struggles and joys of the everyday with the dramatic beauty of people, ritual, belief, and landscape. Created from an archive of 20 years photographing, living and working in India, Departures goes beyond the often incidental or serendipitous nature of street photography to open the door and explore the life within. Author UK–born Shaun Fynn is a visual story teller, photographer, designer, and author based in New York. A keen observer of culture and everyday life, his work crafts stories of resonance and empathy for brands, institutions, and culturally focused projects.

Photoscape and the Egg Patricia Z. Smith

PHOTOSCAPES

AND THE EGG PATRICIA Z. SMITH Photoscapes and the Egg is an intimate book to be savored and kept nearby, perhaps on a coffee table because of its sheer beauty. Inside its robin egg blue cloth cover are improvised photos of objects, nature, and art, each matched with a photo of an egg inside a cosmic circle—eggs with personalities from the calm ethereal to the hot aggressive. In full, there are more than 100 stunning color photos, all taken with an iPhone. The match of phenomena and eggs alludes to the dance of the material world with the invisible “birthing source” represented by the egg. Accompanying text and poems bring stories to the dance. The juxtapositions evoke surprise, insight, emotions, hope, and refreshment. They make wry jokes and touch on realities beyond the obvious. This book contains unabashed gentleness and spiritual toughness without pretense. Photoscapes and the Egg sprang from the mind of Patricia Z. Smith, a 79-year-old photographer and writer with extensive life experience and a pull since childhood to meld the physical with the esoteric. The design by Louis Brody is modern and serene. The book is a gift to the reader and her or his friends. It is a resource for these times and our future.

Decorative Art from the Heart of the West Chase Reynolds Ewald

By Western Hands; Decorative Art from the Heart of the West celebrates the history of rustic design—from the Adirondacks and National Park “parkitecture” style to the work of legendary western furnituremaker Thomas Molesworth—and describes its evolution to the art form it is today, one that is born of an individual artisan’s creative process and uniquely inspired by place. The book includes leading voices in the movement, features original examples of bespoke mountain and rustic interiors, and showcases one-of-a-kind artworks from fifty of the best rustic and western decorative artisans working today.

In Search for Meaning Felisa Tan

In Search for Meaning is the first published book by artistphotographer Felisa Tan. This striking collection covers most of her major work for the past fifteen years, many of which were never published before. Consisting of seventy-two photographs exquisitely made and sequenced by Felisa herself, unveiling spellbinding and strange mundane subjects from her extensive travels and light experimentations at home, she has created a record of the way she experiences the world after undergoing more than a decade of evolution as an artist and human being. Felisa’s photographs reflect honest, clear observation, and an intricate and layered way of seeing, as she watches life unfold itself before her eyes. Her exceptionally loaded ways of looking at the world are reflected in her handling of space, composition, synchronized colours, shapes, and framing, and rather imperfect subjects and places. Common things—graffiti, carnivals, twilight, lonely scenes, and empty spaces—are all transformed by her subtle luminous vision into an extraordinary teacher, filled with ageless Presence and wisdom. The consistency of her proclivity towards certain kinds of places and moments of time, and deep insightful rendering of these moments, present us with an extension of her present tense, reading of meaning, and judgment of what might be of timeless importance to the readers in every phase of their lives. Furthermore, with her ability to grasp the little details that come her Title: In Search for Meaning Size: 7.87” x 11.42” Portrait Pages: 152pp Binding: Hardbound Publication Date: Fall 2022 ISBN: 978-1-957183-01-5 Price: $49.95 World Rights: Available

way as both an individual and a representative of a larger human and universal context, this rich compendium of images in both natural and human settings transport the viewer into the heart of childlike wonder and a lush infinite Universe. Author Felisa Tan is a self-taught artist-photographer based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Beginning with making photographs at home and posting them regularly on DeviantArt in 2007, photography has become a language she chooses to express her love for the world with. Appreciating beauty as it is, she aims to keep her work as accurate as possible to her real-life encounters. The breadth of her subjects is a reflection of her sensitivity to perceive beauty, even in the most ordinary places. Through her work, she hopes to inspire her audience to pause and cherish the myriad blessings that might otherwise be left unnoticed in a world of noise. ISBN 978-1-957183-01-5

Masters of Shape

The Lives and Art of American Women Sculptors Maria Ausherman

This inspiring and beautifully illustrated book chronicles the lives of seventeen pioneering women sculptors who dared to speak their truths about inequality and injustice and overcame obstacles of gender and race in the last hundred and fifty years. The works that these talented artists cast, carved, and molded mirror both their internal worlds and the society surrounding them. There is no better way to inspire young women to fulfill their destiny with courage than to give them these brilliantly brief and cogent portraits of great women who shaped the world of sculpting and through that, our culture, and our world. Ausherman puts the spotlight on women artists simply by celebrating them insightfully, and so well. With many helpful references for additional in-depth readings and beautiful photographs taken by Steven Taylor, this book is a gem for anyone who loves reading how immensely skillful and creative people pursue their passions through the art of sculpture. Author Maria Ausherman, a high school teacher and independent scholar, is the author of The Photographic Legacy of Frances Benjamin Johnston published as a paperback by the University of Alabama Press in 2022, as well as author of Behind the Camera: American Women Photographers Who Shaped How We See the World published by Goff Books, an Imprint of ORO Editions, in 2021.

An Affair of Flowers John Rodrigues

This impressive book is richly illustrated with 91 gorgeous macro photographs—of flowers, and also some of their pollinators—by John Rodrigues, an artist who has taken that time to truly see. We invite you to sit back, maybe with a cup of hot Chamomile tea, and indulge in these images—taking the time to truly see these flowers, and to appreciate their inherent majesty. John Rodrigues takes an old lens and new camera and gives us a new look at an old photographic subject. Author John Rodrigues grew up surfing on California’s Central Coast then moved down south in 1979 where he picked up his love for photography. He worked as a photographer for Motown, and pursued photography jobs in the area. He took headshots for aspiring actors, photojournalism assignments for local papers, and of course some nice family pictures. From the very beginning of his career, his favorite subjects have been landscapes and nature.

that changed the way he worked. The thought process was: what if he coupled the old Canon lens with a modern mirrorless camera? He was using the SONY A7R IV, and it became the perfect vehicle to meld old technology with new using a simple adapter to create a whole different way of seeing flowers. This allowed for a “live view” screen that gave license to see his subjects in real time— he could move in and out of petals, stamens, and leaves like a mini spaceship. These images with a narrow field of focus had the “look” Rodrigues had been striving to achieve throughout his whole career.

For 25 years Rodrigues co-owned Boulevard Camera, a momand-pop photo store, lab, and studio. Back then he made it his job to know every type or piece of camera equipment. He particularly loved Canon’s fast 55mm f/1.2 lens made in the 1970s—that lens stuck out particularly, and years later led to a photographic epiphany

Small Town Big Dreams The Life of Nancy Zeckendorf

Nancy King Zeckendorf and Jane Scovell

This is a story of a young girl from a small town with a big dream that took her to Juilliard, Broadway, summer stock, the stage of the Metropolitan Opera and the Santa Fe Opera, and introduced her to her husband William Zeckendorf Jr. Her memoir overflows with the glamour of a life lived among the famous figures of mid-century New York society and the grit necessary to succeed in the professional world of dance. Fascinated by art and architecture, the vivacious ballerina Nancy Zeckendorf became a formidable development partner with her husband and a philanthropic leader in the performing arts–her fundraising ability is an art form unto itself. “I love hardware stores and tools,” she said of her common-sense approach to construction projects. Indeed, Nancy was a guiding force in the expansion of the Santa Fe Opera, the Lensic Performing Arts Center, and the premier community of Los Miradores where she lives now in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Contributors Nancy King Zeckendorf, formerly a principal dancer for the Metropolitan Opera Ballet and Santa Fe Opera, is a founding director and chair of the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe. After her years as a dancer, she began a new career creating special events and fundraising for the arts. A design partner on projects in Santa Fe and New York with her late husband and New York real estate developer William Zeckendorf Jr., she is as comfortable with an architect’s blueprints as with a choreographer’s direction. Jane Scovell has written books with Elizabeth Taylor, Ginger Rogers, Tim Conway, Marilyn Horne, and a biography of Oona Chaplin. She is currently writing with director Brian Large.

Anti-trend

Resilient Design and the Art of Sustainable Living Kristine Hornshøj Harper

The overall purpose of Anti-trend is to encourage designers and consumers to take responsibility for overproduction and overconsumption, and to alter unsustainable production and behavioral patterns. Through a study of anti-trend as opposed to volatile trends the importance of pursuing resilience in life in general and in relation to the creation of sustainable design-objects and living solutions is underlined. Hence, the anti-trend investigations navigate through two main focal points: anti-trendy living and the anti-trendy design practice. Establishing a sustainable lifestyle and designing durable products have one very important thing in common: they revolve around the formation of an enduring core that can function as a stable, yet flexible foundation for actions and usage. One of the most important and vital ways of overcoming and turning around the immense environmental problems we are currently facing worldwide is radical reduction of consumption. However, despite the fact that altering our habitual consumer ways might sound straightforward, it appears to be unbelievably hard. Even though we are bombarded with horrific and very tangible scenarios involving starving polar bears, whales with plastic-filled stomachs, and burning rivers, and even though these images are presented as interlinked with overconsumption, we continue to shop, and we continue to discard the majority of our belongings way before they don’t work anymore or are worn out, and hence we continue to add to the Title: Anti-trend Size: 7” x 9” Portrait Pages: 304pp Binding: Softbound Publication Date: Fall 2021 ISBN: 978-1-954081-05-5 Price: $35.00 World Rights: Available

mountains and islands of trash that are building up in landfills and in oceans. Why? Because we are evil? No, of course not. Rather, the reason could be partly interlinked with an increasing detachment from our physical, natural environment and partly with the fact that habits are hard to change, particularly when engulfed in a busy daily routine. Our lack of sustainable action is likely connected to the fact that status symbols are to an extent associated with new, flashy things, and to the constant craving for more that seems to govern our late-modern minds and societies, as well as to the despair that this entails. Therefore, a significant part of Anti-trend is dedicated to an investigation of despair as well as authentic, sustainable living. Other parts of the book are committed to solutions: to an investigation of how objects and living solutions can encourage fulfilled, sustainable, resilient living with less as well as to a concretization hereof in the shape of three legitimations for creating new products in a world that is already overflowing with things and product waste. Author Kristine H. Harper is a freelance writer and researcher. Her main research areas are sustainable object-design and living, aesthetics, permaculture, and preservation of endangered crafts traditions. She worked as a lecturer in Copenhagen for a decade and is the author of Aesthetic Sustainability and has written a wide range of articles on sustainability. ISBN 978-1-954081-05-5

A Botany of Violence

528 Years of Resistance & Resurgence Pablo Escudero, Ghazal Jafari, Pierre Bélanger

From germ theory to plantation logic, this book charts the 528year legacy of global, colonial powers in the violent search for the elusive Cinchona plant of South America, the only known natural cure for malaria in the world. Stolen by the Jesuits in the 17th century, smuggled abroad by Britain and Holland during the 18th century, mapped by German explorer Alexander von Humboldt in the 19th century, and exploited by global pharma in the 20th century, the Cinchona plant and the story of its powerful quinine extract not only lie at the base of modern civilization but trace the deep roots of Indigenous, territorial resistance back to the Amazon and the Andes. Composed as a geopolitical treatise, this book proposes a counter-map to rebuild relations with the Cinchona plant—originally known to its peoples as the “Quino tree”—and to challenge territorial destruction that continues to increase amidst state-sanctioned resource extraction and benevolent conservation. Using the unfamiliar format of an illustrated historical timeline, the chronological organization of images and stories presented as unique spatial evidence offer counter-narratives to the conventional bounded map of the nation state and the distancing of the past that often overshadows and obscures realities of the present-future. Contributors Pablo Escudero is a farmer, architect, and urbanist from the Andean region of Pichincha in northern Ecuador and US Fulbright Scholar living on traditional territories of Kechwa People. He is founding director and research coordinator of LA MINGA Collective based in Quito focusing on territories of conflict at the intersection of the Amazon and the Andes.

on spatial and environmental justice, immigrant narratives, women resistance movements, and non-Western spatial discourses. She is founding director of Miyan Rudan “Between Rivers,” a longterm territorial initiative based along the Karun River watershed, borderlands of Iran and Iraq. Pierre Bélanger is a settler designer and landscape architect, originally from Montréal and Ottawa, currently in Boston, traditional lands of the Massachusett Peoples, territory of the Wampanoag and Nipmuc Nations. He currently coordinates The 1492 Project, an initiative dedicated to the removal of Columbus monuments across the Americas and the dismantling of structures of white supremacy. Together, they are founding members of OPEN SYSTEMS / Landscape Infrastructure Lab, a non-profit organization dedicated to the opening of knowledge of complex ecological challenges and raising awareness of geopolitical conflicts at the intersection of environmental justice, spatial inequality, climate change, and community self-determination.

Slow Wine Guide USA Edited by Giancarlo Gariglio

The very best wines are awarded the Top Wine accolade. Among these we have the Slow Wines—which beyond their outstanding sensory quality are of particular interest for their sense of place, environmental sustainability or historical value—and the Everyday Wines, representing excellent value at prices within $30. The most interesting wineries on the other hand are awarded the Snail, for the way they interpret Slow Food values (sensory perceptions, territory, environment, identity) while offering good value for money; the Bottle, to wineries whose wines are of outstanding sensory quality throughout the range; the Coin to those estates offering excellent value for money. Contributors Giancarlo Gariglio: Editor-in-chief Deborah Parker Wong: Coordinating Editor Pam Strayer: Senior Editor Editorial Assistant: Jonathan Gebser Other contributors Gwendoyln Alley, Peg Champion, Catherine Fallis, MS, Charles Kelly, Laurie Love, Sally Ohlin, Karla Ravandi, Leslie Rosa, Amber Turpin, L.M. Archer, Sophia McDonald Bennett, Catherine Fallis, MS, Ellen Landis, Neal D. Hulkower, Ph.D., Nancy Crosier, Robin Shreeves, and Kathleen Wilcox Slow Wine Guide USA is a new and revolutionary guide to the wines of California, Oregon, New York, and Washington. Thanks to the help of a handful of expert contributors, we’ve selected the best wineries from each state and reviewed their most outstanding bottles. The idea behind Slow Wine is simple: it acknowledges the unique stories of people and vineyards, of grape varieties and landscapes, and of their wines. The awareness that wine is more than just liquid in a glass helps wine lovers make better, more conscious choices and enhances the very enjoyment of this beverage. Since its beginnings in Italy twelve years ago, Slow Wine has combined its tasting sessions with equally important moments of exchange and debate with producers. The direct contact with winegrowers and winemakers allows for a genuine, authentic, and always up-to-date report on what’s happening in America’s vineyards and cellars.

The Slow Wine Guide evaluates over 400 different wineries and treats each with the utmost respect and attention. The Slow Wine team prides itself on the human contact it has with all producers, which is essential to the guide’s evaluations. While other guides limit their relationship to a blind tasting and brief write up, Slow Wine takes the time to get personal with each winery in order to create a wellinformed, detailed review of the wines themselves and the people behind the production. Slow Wine selects wineries that respect and reflect their local terroir and practice sustainable methods that benefit the environment. And for the first time ever, those wineries that receive the snail or the official Slow Wine seal are 100% free of chemical herbicides, a quality that the Slow Wine Guide continues to passionately support.

Each winery receives a review divided in three sections: the first one is dedicated to the people who live and work at the winery, the second to the vineyards and the way they’re farmed, and the third to the finest wines currently available on the market.

PEOPLE - Rare is the winery that puts its founder’s image on the label of its top wines, but when that founder is Mike (or Miljenko) Grgich, the image fits. A Croatian immigrant who arrived in Napa with one simple suitcase and just a few bucks, Grgich (now 97) famously made the Chardonnay that won the 1976 Paris Tasting. A storied career followed in partnership with Austin Hills (of Hills Bros. Coffee). These days Grgich’s daughter Violet serves as the winery’s president; Grgich’s nephew Ivo Jeramaz manages winemaking and production.

C

PEOPLE - Guthrie Family Wines is an idea born from the dreams of a winemaking couple, a small boutique brand launched in 2013 to showcase a minimalist approach to winemaking. Blair Guthrie, whose day job involves making high end Napa Cab, always knew he wanted his own brand as soon as he got into the wine industry. They have actualized that vision to have complete freedom, to sell direct to consumers and to produce bright, fresh “New California” wines for folks who crave something a bit more accessible and refreshing.

PEOPLE - Pamela and George Hamel, Jr. bought a historic Sonoma Valley property and founded the winery in 2010 with their two sons, managing directors John B. Hamel II, and George F. Hamel III. Their sons run the family winery with a dream team of consultants including Pedro Parra (from Argentina) on terroir, Garrett Buckland (from Napa) on viticulture, Corinne Comme (from France) on biodynamics, and Alberto Antonini (from Tuscany) on winemaking.

B

VINEYARDS - Grgich Hills has amassed a treasure trove of five estate vineyards that encompass the entire length of Napa Valley—from Calistoga in the north (good for Zinfandel) to Rutherford in the middle (prized for Cabernet) to Carneros in the south (perfect for Chardonnay). It grows another 166 acres of vines in American Canyon. In Yountville, its prized heritage Cabernet vineyard, has preserved old vines dating back to 1959. WINES - Grgich wines have always stood out for elegance, consistency and age-worthiness.

This Demeter certified biodynamic ranch is a statement to what can be achieved when biodynamics are embraced from the outset.

PEOPLE - After living abroad in Monaco, Rick and Aurora Grimm relocated to California and purchased the bluff property in 2010. Bringing their love of European food and wine to the West Coast, they partnered with winemaker Paul Lato and biodynamic specialist Philippe Coderey and planted the first vines in 2012.

VINEYARDS - Guthrie sources all of their fruit, with high standards on using only organic. Blair says that one day he had an epiphany while shopping at Whole Foods, and asked himself “why do I not make my wines the way I eat?” Going forward, he decided to never buy fruit from a vineyard that is not farming organically or biodynamically.

WINES - South Africa native Ernst Stone is the winemaker, his goal is to craft elegant wines with pronounced sense of place.

WINES - Guthrie Wines are light, juicy, bright and clean. They pick early, which results in high aromatice and acid-driven, food friendly wine.

American Industry

Photography of Kim Steele Introduction by Paul Goldberger

American Industry is as much a celebration as it is documentation. Through his unique vision and privileged access, photographer Kim Steele has achieved a spectacular distillation of a variety of icons of power. Some of these places of power are literal: sources of hydro-electric energy, such as dams or atomic and accelerators. Other places of power are more metaphorical: the might of massive construction as only heavy industry can achieve, whether in architecture or ships; or the romance of aviation and the exploration of space. The photographic images are as iconic as their subjects. Formally pure and powerful in their scale and clarity, they mirror the ambitious and inspirational quality of what are now understood to be quintessential and classic symbols of American ingenuity and drive. Together, the seven chapters, Hydro Power, Aviation, Heavy Industry, Energy, Space, Atomic Energy, and The Future, create a visual tapestry of American industrial power in the twentieth century. A testimony of a guilded age of American Industrial might. Contributors Kim Steele is a San Francisco-based American photographer. He was educated at the Newhouse School of communications at Syracuse University. After graduating he received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship and attended graduate school at the University of New Mexico, where he studied under Beaumont Title: American Industry Size: 10” x 10” Square Pages: 124pp Binding: Softbound Publication Date: Fall 2022 ISBN: 978-1-951541-70-5 Price: $40.00 World Rights: Available

’93 til

A Photographic Journey Through Skateboarding in the 1990s Pete Thompson

Bestseller To be a skateboarder today is a much different experience than it was for much of the 1990s. The photographs, quotes, and anecdotal text in ’93 til captures a time in skateboarding when making a livable income as a professional skater was a luxury and public understanding of skateboarding was at an all-time low. It was a time when skateboarding was searching for an identity, a time before Instagram and big corporate influences. Street skating was coming of age, testing its limitations and aligning itself with a new and innovate style of hip-hop culture that was emerging. Looking back, many skaters today feel as though the ’90s were the golden years of skateboarding. ’93 til is a captivating portal into a decade and a culture that is remembered with warmth and nostalgia. Much of the photography that Pete has unearthed for ’93 til was buried in boxes for close to two decades and hasn’t never been seen or published before. The 236-page book also contains several timeless images from his years shooting for SLAP and Transworld Skateboarding Magazine that will be familiar to the initiated. In addition to his stunning action shots are plenty of portraits and unguarded, candid moments that span from the late ’80s up through 2004. The book reveals a raw, unapologetic perspective of a world that no longer exists. Also included in the book alongside Pete’s imagery are quotes and anecdotes from legends like Tony Hawk, Arto Saari, Jamie Thomas, Guy Mariano, Nyjah Huston, Geoff Rowley, Stevie Williams, and others. Pete moved on from his career in skate photography in 2004 and is currently living in Brooklyn.

Author In a photography career spanning nearly three decades, Pete Thompson worked as senior staff photographer for Transworld Skateboarding Magazine and contributing photographer for SLAP and Skateboarder Magazine. Pete has photographed many of the best skateboarders in the world, during a time in the ’90s that some call “the golden era” of skateboarding, before leaving the skate industry in 2004. After re-locating to New York City in 2008, and assisting Danish fashion photographer Anders Overgaard, Pete’s work made a pivotal shift, exploring a more nuanced, spontaneous feeling. His current work focuses on capturing candid moments that communicate a spirit of honesty, and authenticity. Pete currently resides in Brooklyn, NY. ISBN 978-1-951541-46-0

New York: Stilled Life

Portrait of a City in Lockdown Gregory Peterson

Memorial Day due to fears of civil unrest as, documented in the chapter “Plywood New York.” New York: Stilled Life is a comprehensive record of a unique, vanished moment; a memento of a time we all endured and how it changed us and our cities—perhaps forever. Mid-March 2020: native New Yorker Gregory Peterson is on an i early evening walk through the city, suddenly shut down by the coronavirus pandemic. Manhattan’s grand public spaces are bare. The monumental Lincoln Center Plaza is empty. The sounds of skates on ice and bustle of tourists and workers at Rockefeller Center are absent. Not a soul on Easter Sunday at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine. Starkly silent, the city is stilled, as no one had ever seen it before. Traveling on foot and by bike to avoid public transportation, Peterson took more than 400 photographs of over 200 locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens through the spring and summer of 2020. Using his iPhone 11, he captured myriad surreal landmarks—the United Nations Secretariat with no traffic, people, or flags, Grand Central Terminal without a person or even a car in sight, as well as gelled neighborhood streets, churches, shops, and other tourist destinations. Without people, these photos reveal the city’s primeval soul. They unveil a serene beauty most often obscured by the frenzy of our fast-paced lives. We see New York with new eyes.

Authors Gregory Peterson is a corporate lawyer and noted art collector. A native, life-long New Yorker, he is a graduate of the High School of Music and Art (now the LaGuardia High of Music and the Performing Arts), where he studied oil painting and other media, and is an alumnus of Columbia College and Columbia Law School. Prior to becoming a lawyer he was a filmmaker and television producer. Barry Bergdoll is Meyer Schapiro Professor of Art History at Columbia University and the former Chief Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. A specialist in the history of modern architecture, he curated numerous exhibitions at MoMA, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the Musée d’Orsay, and other venues.

During the height of the lockdown, Peterson also captures the city’s response to swelling Black Lives Matter protests that shook the world after the killing of George Floyd. For the first time in living memory, midtown Manhattan and other areas were boarded up following Title: New York: Stilled Life Size: 9” x 11” Portrait Pages: 204pp Binding: Hardbound Publication Date: Fall 2021 ISBN: 978-1-954081-26-0 Price: $50.00 World Rights: Available

Situationist Funhouse G.H. Hovagimyan Stephen Zacks

G.H. Hovagimyan is an absurdist, a strategist, a serial collaborator, and nothing short of a cultural icon in the world of contemporary art, particularly as it relates to how artists have adopted the digital technological tools of our times, adapting them in his work for critique of art, popular culture, and social engagement. Situationist Funhouse is a joyride through this history. The journey Stephen Zacks so meticulously documents and describes is not only an incredibly comprehensive ride through G.H.’s life work to date— Hovagimyan adopted G.H. as an acronym in the 1990s as a kind of gesture of personal rebirth and to ease others’ difficulty with his last name [pronounced ho-va-GIM-yan]—it also serves as a document that tracks a particular view on the alternative contemporary art scene of New York from the 1970s to the present day. Author Stephen Zacks is an advocacy journalist, architecture critic, urbanist, and organizer based in New York City. A graduate of Michigan State University and New School for Social Research with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary humanities and a master’s in liberal studies, he founded Flint Public Art Project in 2011 and serves as president of the nonprofit Amplifier Inc., which promotes new conceptual frameworks and proven strategies to influence public policy and improve local and global governance.

Who Am I? Jean-Paul Bordier

The lush surreal illustrations of this book and its short humoristic story telling make it a fun, quick read for all ages and for anyone obliquely interested in our thirst for development and the nature of who we are. Through a poetic parody of human’s desires for more of everything, we become aware that such a quest does not bring us any closer to knowing ourselves or seeing, as contemporary scientific or spiritual leaders are telling us: all things and beings of our planet are intimately related, alive and ultimately “One.” While each colorful painting alludes to our close relationship with the world, short lines innocently and wryly comment on the predicaments of our lives pertaining to the industrial world, where dream and reality often appear intertwined. Through the shifting identities of forms, this album gives us a glance at our own formless nature and how our excessive wish for love, home, comfort, power, and productivity inexorably transforms our worldview and make us bypass our deep infinite nature, which cannot be contained through words. As some indigenous traditions have taught us: “life is like a dream. One wonders whether it is by living that we dream or by dreaming that we live.”

The Gold Lotus

Thousands of Cupid’s Arrows on the Battlefield of Love A. D. Dauphinais

This is an epic tale; a fantasy replete with grand romances and countless avenues leading to divine love. Venture through diverse time perspectives and complex mythologies of the gods in this multidimensional drama, inspired by ancient Asian principles. The Gold Lotus is a dance in written form; a saga with a rhythmic delivery that will transport you through intricate plots, legendary wars, unsettling separations and passionate love, unbound. Manifested in a time of darkness and war, the celestial being Kānu prepares for a journey brought on by Muniji, the minstrel saint, to face a destiny that stands between destruction and salvation. Weaving through the ways of love and power, the almighty Kānu will learn to become the saviour of his heavenly kingdom while discovering the deepest desires of the heart and defeating evil – both within and without. As the heavenly kingdom yearns for its saviour, a formidable and broken God of War comes to battle with an unpredictable foe that has bested the mightiest of warriors before him: finding the lost love capable of fulfilling the void in his heart. What (or who) he finds as the answer proves to be a riddle never before encountered by the revered warrior. Alongside Kānu and a kingdom of mystical beings that oversee the forces of existence, the celestial war for balance is far from won and the stakes grow higher with every heartbeat.

For the past twenty-five years, she has been immersed in ancient knowledge, fascinated by Buddhist, Vedic, and Sanskrit literatures. Recently she compiled a fantasy novel filled with timeless possibilities of divine love, based upon the Vedic viewpoint of time. The Gold Lotus multi-world drama series is not only a page-turner, but also a perception changer. Filled with poems, ancient knowledge, wars and romance.

Complements

Eloquence of Small Objects Patricia Z. Smith

Complements is a gem, an intimate book to be savored on first readings and held near as a resource on what is real. It contains 115 luscious photos of small objects juxtaposed in ways that evoke emotions, thoughts, questions, and remembrance of beauty. The photographs tell stories, make wry jokes, and elude to larger realities of the esoteric. As complements, the objects are more than the sum of their parts. A sentence or two of text accompanies each photograph, creating storylines that draw the viewer into the world of the objects as strongly as if they were human, except, their not being human allows the viewer a purer sense of what they tell us. David Hume Kennedy, the Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, says in the foreword, “The narrative and pictures reunite twins separated at birth.” The photographs pull the viewer in with their emotional content, then ask the viewer to step back for another look—to both feel and think, to understand truths beyond words.

Authors Patricia Z. Smith was the photographer for the “War on Poverty.” She taught photography at the Smithsonian Institution and has had several one-person shows. She has a playwright, a collector of pre1850 quilts exhibited at the Smithsonian, and is a globally-recognized peace activist. Louise Brody has designed more than 100 books for a variety of leading British, American, and French publishers, museums, and international press, as well as working with private clients to produce publications for important events or to commemorate achievements. David Hume Kennerly is a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and was the White House photographer under President Gerald Ford. He has photographed eight presidents, and historic events around the world. His photographs are icons of American history.

Inflatable Planet Addi Somekh

A balloon artist and photographer travels the world surprising people with improvised, inflatable crowns and offer a deep view into the nature of joy. The simple act of twisting a balloon for a complete stranger can make people instant friends. This idea animated balloon artist Addi Somekh and photographer Charlie Eckert to improvise balloon crowns for unsuspecting people throughout 35 countries and document their reactions. Part photography book, part sociological study, part spontaneous party, Inflatable Planet chronicles features of over 200 photos from this international experiment in joy.

Street Culture Seleen Saleh

Street Culture is a stunning collection of photographs representing women and men of color who exhibit a unique style. Seleen Saleh’s photographs reveal individuality, fearlessness, and creativity in the most vibrant beings who collectively represent street style. This style is as varied as the people; it is a personal expression that changes day to day. It is an expression of a person’s culture, mood, influences, and esthetics. Street style originated in the street where top designers look for inspiration for their next collections. The book preserves the integrity of street style and features some of the muses that have been forgotten or were never acknowledged. In the book Seleen combines photographs from her work at Essence Magazine with new images of jaw-dropping, creative and colorful moments. As a lover of fashion, art, and people, Seleen brings out the authentic nature of these known and unknown muses. Each person depicted here can be considered a brilliant artist in his or her own right. These portraits were taken in New York City—the perfect global destination—diverse and open and where people are not afraid to tell you who they are. There is an underfed audience for this book; the world is waking up and wants to see more diversity and more eclectic styles. Author Seleen Saleh in her younger years painted fashion spreads and collected inspiration from magazines and the world around her. In school at the Art Institute of Philadelphia she merged her love of fashion and photography. It was during this time that she began to develop her bold and vibrant style.
