An Atlas of Rare & Familiar Colour
€ 33,-

Most of the time when we think about color, it’s the red, the blue, the green, the yellow, the orange and the purple that we talk about. Black and white aside, these are the colors that go through the rainbows. Yet, nature is quite rich with all sorts of color varieties giving us more options than we tend to take. Some of these varieties are nicely assembled in this new Atlas of Rare and Familiar Colour of the Harvard Art Museum’s Forbes Pigment Collection where ten basic colors are put in their historical context to serve as the starting point for more variations of color pigments. Each of these are presented in tiny recipients with their name on, and a short description and their origin inscribed next to them.

Foam – Back to the Future #49
€ 22,50

Each year Foam magazine comes in three issues supplying photography enthusiasts with fresh ideas and high-quality material covering a variety of disciplines, which can either be set in the contemporary or driven from historical records. The current issue, Back to the Future, which is also the name of an exhibition at the Foam Museum (18 January – 28 March 2018) and another at C/O Berlin (29 September – 02 December 2018), brings in a bundle of world famous photographers and other less known ones to rearrange distinct images and motifs, and recycle themes and ideas from the early pioneering days of nineteenth-century photography. The theme is inspired by the growing number of young photographers who are reviving old methods and challenging the speed with which production processes are taking place.

Purple #29
€ 30,-

Purple Index 76 is the newest release of the glamorous biannual Purple Fashion for SPRING/SUMMER 2018. This one comes in big size, infused with fashion entries and with art and cultural material presenting the work of seventy-six star and non-star artists who are photographed and interviewed in the framework of their art. This represents a shared understanding with photographer and editor of the magazine, Olivier Zahm, about the role of the arts in general, which is, that they can contribute to seeing the world more clearly and to effect positive changes here and there through optimism, but do not claim to answer everything.

The Imaginative Argument

The Imaginative Argument
€ 22,-

Since its first appearance in 2005 Cijoffi’s ‘Imaginative Argument’ has been effectively used as an authoritative textbook in the writing curriculum. The second edition at hand incorporates recent changes in the field, adding new chapters on how to develop what the author calls, the ‘stream writing’ mode, and another on how to render one’s ideas more complex and more compelling. Cijoffi also introduces a range of concise clues to avoid erroneous logic and trite sentences. But mainly, he tries to figure how to uphold the value of using arguments in discourse, fearing that without it our communication is becoming hollow. His emphasis is that arguments are better formed when they are imaginative, which can be realized by activating our deep-seated feelings, for that only emotions and the personal experiences linked to them can serve as the launchpad for a successful writing experience.

Fare #2 – Helsinki
€ 14,-

After Istanbul, Fare embarks on a new adventure into the culinary and historical features of a new city, this time it’s the Finnish capital Helsinki.
Fare’s second issue testifies to the hidden riches of this city, unveiling the particularity of its food, history and community life, which all seems to have been influenced by the fact that Helsinki has kept a relatively isolated culture which grew in reaction to centuries of turbulent interactions with its swedish and russian neighbors. Fare provides succinct, useful historical briefings on this while presenting the highlights of its gastronomy including the iconic traditional dish Vorschmack, the historic fish markets such as the Stadin Silakkamarkkinat (the Baltic herring market), and the legendary café tents that can be found on market squares.

The History of Graphic Design Vol.1

The History of Graphic Design – Vol.1
€ 49,99

Every epoch carries its own milestones which could be positive and advantageous like innovative creations and discoveries or corrosive, like wars. For the most part, be it for commercial, political or artistic purposes, visual communication was central in the development of major events in our recent history as a means of expression and a powerful tool for persuasion. »Graphic Design, Vol.1, 1890–1959« by Taschen presents the history of graphic design productions between the period following the industrial revolution of the nineteenth century until the aftermath of WWII. Humongous and informative, the trilingual book offers a vivid synthesis of illustrations which can be approached either for stylistic and aesthetic interests, or for research and pure educational reasons considering that every displayed image is in itself a historical document.

How Institutions Think

How Institutions Think
€ 34,-

How Institutions Think is the collective work of an international interdisciplinary network of academics and practitioners in the arts and curating scene who convened to investigate interchanges between the existing understanding of institutional work and the set of evolving habits, practices, models and discourses animating arts and curating. They address the extent to which institutions and institutional building is still relevant today and how far the ‘traditional’ institutional formats can go to adapt to the emerging models and progressive inclinations within the arts. The first half of the book focuses on how to ‘think via institutions’ whereas the second half offers a thorough analysis on ‘thinking about institutions’.

Mushpit #10
€ 13,-

Founded by Bertie Brandes and Charlotte Roberts when they were 21 of age, Mushpit is now one of London’s most beloved satirical magazines to speak about the problems, ambitions and frustrations of the millennial generation. Mush pit touches on problems that are often something Bertie and Charlotte had to personally go through, like the post-Brexit fanfare or the occasional heartbreaking struggles with men. With art director Richard Turley coming on board, Mushpit’s tenth issue stands out from previous publications with a more elaborate design, and poignant content which includes an original Instagram story series, a touching essay about love, and the very confessions of an ex-millennial mouthpiece.

American Readers at Home

American Readers at Home
€ 68,-

American Readers at Home is the lavishly designed outcome result of a 13000 miles long road-trip across America during and right after the presidential elections of 2016 which brought Donald Trump to the White House. These were highly contentious times in which American society was deeply polarized around all sorts of issues, from race and gender to immigration and employment. Swiss designer Ludovic Balland and his small team, were willing and able to navigate through the ongoing debates, running more than 200 interviews which draw an overview assessment of the electorate’s news consumption habits in this period. They investigated the role of the media in shaping opinions and documented key events such as the inauguration day and the Women’s Day march in Washington, capturing the gist of a defining moment in the history of the United State of America.

Kajet #1
€ 18,-

When we used to talk about incidents where large groups of people are indiscriminately brushed with the same derogatory stereo typifications, we used to vaguely tone down the problem to the capacity of ‘the uneducated’ among us for irrational behavior. But with the rise of far-right bigotry these days, prejudice and racist slurs are the casual product of powerful individuals and media platforms. In its very first edition Kajet takes on the problem, focusing on prejudice targeting East European societies in particular. In five chapters centered on the importance of community values this bookish journal lends voice to underrepresented writers from the region who aim to challenge prejudiced narratives and spotlight what is it that makes them truly east Europeans. This includes subcultural collectives, rituals of self-defense, architecture, space and the dream of a truly borderless world.

Augmented Photography (Ecal)
€ 27,-

Augmented Photography is the offshoot of a research project developed in the newly created Masters in photography at cal, the University of Art and Design in Lausanne. Seen in broad perspective, ‘augmented’ refers to the layer of reality that is building up due to the systematic interference of computers. This book looks on where photography stands in this new arrangement, in five chapters entitled ‘New Tools, Ubiquity, Materialization, Perspective and Conversations’ respectively dealing with the role of technological innovations (i.e. algorithms) in the photo-creation processes, the implications of mass online circulation of photos, the contemporary approaches of morphing pictures into 3D, and the attitude of traditional institutions toward such changes. In a nutshell, Augmented Photography aspires to see the growing wild world of digital image-making and sharing, a bit more clearly.

Berlin Living Rooms

Berlin Living Rooms (Apartamento)
€ 39,-

Berlin Living Rooms concludes Dominique Nabokov’s living rooms photo series, which started in New York, then moved to Paris and finally settles in the German capital. Different people including writer and opera director Jenny Erpenbeck, director of the Berlin Biennale Dieter Kosslig, and former editor-in-chief of German Vogue Angelica Blechschmidt, have agreed to open their doors and share some of what is usually part of a safely private world. It goes without saying that this book doesn’t really pretend to disclose all sorts of adopted styles of Berlin dwellers as much as it offers an eclectic view on the taste of a city.

Beneficial Shock! #2
€ 12,-

How would a standard film magazine typically look like? Right, the reviews, the celebrity news and many press images ready for use. But this stuff doesn’t always keep the conversation flowing in the bar after a film. Beneficial Shock! gives alternative doses of cinematic input, twice a year to keep us going. The material is put together by illustrators, designers and writers who love to probe the specific scenes or themes that provoke us and the images that are powerful enough to haunt us in our dreams. Besides the visually engaging illustrations this issue stands out with the topics it covers. For instance, in Spy Anxiety, Harry Haysom critically reinterprets four Bond films using Carl Jung’s psychoanalysis. And in a globetrotting journey through cinema censorship, editor Gabriel Solomons tracks some episodes of censorship in Israel, Burma, China and North Korea which are carried, almost comically, under all possible health, political, and the good old public-morals-protection claims.

And then a word on the blessings of solitude to stimulate creativity, and a description of the secluded environments in which musicians like Bon Iver, Kanye West, or Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones were able to accomplish some of their masterly bits of music.

The Power of Masks
€ 45,-

In her book ‘Aveux Non Avenues, 1930, transgender artist Claude Cajun famously said ‘under this mask, another mask. I will never finish removing all these faces.’ Hers, are the deliberately shaped fragments of an identity, that of the writer, the artist and the transgender. But so are we all like Cahun striving on the power of our masks? How many of these one can, and needs to wear? And do masks hide or reveal us? In the Power of the Mask, Belgian designer Walter van Beirendonck makes a generous exposure to an avalanche of masks, beautifully pointing at their meanings and purposes throughout different cultures. Whether we like to wear masks for ritualistic, fetishistic or theatrical reasons, Beirendonck shows us that there are more to the mask than simply, hiding games.

Pasolini´s Bodies and Places
€ 78,-

Pier Paolo Pasolini was undoubtedly one of Italy’s most visionary intellectuals and film directors of the 20th century. His work, and the controversy around his life and death are worthy of a typical italian un giallo, a black thriller story. In this vast collection of black and white photographs and written extracts from Pasolini’s pre film-shooting notes, film critics Michele Mancini and Giuseppe Perrelli offer a long-awaited initiation into his work translated for the first time into the English language.
The original volume in Italian language from which this book is driven expands on 600 pages, including a classification of 2000 films arranged according to Pasolini’s notions of “bodies” and “places”.

Cloudy Jongstra, the “book“, brings the process of dyeing texture closer to the curious. Get lost in a colorful photographic exposure to flowers and vegetable fields which furnish the dye laboratories with essential ingredients for coloring. These include batches of freshly harvested calendulas, tickseeds, sunflowers, onions, walnuts, woads, and Japanese indigo: for color secretion. Then silk and Darentha Heath wool which constitute the fibers: readied for their color bath. Maybe you would in the meantime notice how amusing the original photos showcasing the coloring process become after some (you guessed it) color edits. Don’t be too excited though, or else you risk ripping the delicately folded pages of this “book” off. It’s better to hold them from the top, and gently leaf through their various layers of dyeing.
