  • Old Fieldsby John R. Stilgoe

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 34.95

In Old Fields, John Stilgoe?one of the most original observers of his time?offers a poetic and controversial exploration... more...

  • Images of Shameby Carolin Behrmann

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 76.16

    At the zone of intersection between imagery, law, and the economy, the defamatory image is charged with a particularly explosive significance. Initially used as a judicial means of punishing debtors and other violators of contracts, defamatory images remain a vehicle for the denunciation and pejorative depiction of lawbreakers. This volume... more...

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 32.50

    Commemoration lies at the poetic, historiographic, and social heart of human community. It is how societies define themselves and is central to the institution of the city.

  • A Sky Full of Kindnessby Rob Ryan

    Chronicle Books LLC 2013; US$ 12.99

    Rob Ryan's papercut prose is so exquisitely intricate, it begs closer examination?and always captures a lingering eye. The story Ryan tells in this jacketed hardcover is a celebration of love and family just as heartfelt as it is visually arresting: two songbirds eagerly anticipate the arrival of their first child, and as they tend to their nest, they... more...

  • Hello, New Yorkby Julia Rothman

    Chronicle Books LLC 2014; US$ 14.99

  • The Book of Shrigleyby David Shrigley

    Chronicle Books LLC 2012; US$ 19.99

    Pop artist David Shrigley's work is immediate, sometimes rude, and very funny, "like a psychotic version of Matt Groening's 'Life in Hell' cartoons" ( The Guardian ). His darkly brilliant, addictively hilarious scrawls from the subconscious have already made him a star in the UK, with a growing legion of fans around the globe. The Book of Shrigley... more...

  • Stickworkby Patrick Dougherty

    Princeton Architectural Press 2013; US$ 27.99

    Using minimal tools and a simple technique of bending, interweaving, and fastening together sticks, artist Patrick Dougherty creates works of art inseparable with nature and the landscape. With a dazzling variety of forms seamlessly intertwined with their context, his sculptures evoke fantastical images of nests, cocoons, cones, castles, and beehives.... more...

  • Bruce Sargeant and His Circleby Mark Beard; Thomas Sokolowski

    Chronicle Books LLC 2012; US$ 34.99

    Painter Mark Beard is a master of fiction. Working in the 1920s style of his imaginary gay great-uncle Bruce Sargeant, Beard creates images of athletes in various stages of dress and undress.
