Candid snapshots of Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, and other legendary artists
 
Tucked away among the letters, diaries, and other ephemera in the Smithsonian's archives lies a trove of rarely seen snapshots of some of the twentieth century's most celebrated artists. Unlike the familiar official portraits and genius-at-work shots, these humble snaps capture creative giants with their guard down, in the moment, living life. Artists Unframed presents more than one hundred spellbinding snapshots from the personal lives of legendary artists such as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Alexander Calder, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, Jasper Johns, Ansel Adams, Elaine de Kooning, David Hockney, Dizzy Gillespie, Marcel Duchamp, John Waters, and many others.
A riveting tale, a story of success against great odds.
 
In the summer of 1944, a handpicked group of young GIs that included such future luminaries as Bill Blass, Ellsworth Kelly, Arthur Singer, Victor Dowd, Art Kane, and Jack Masey landed in France to conduct a secret mission. Armed with truckloads of inflatable tanks, a massive collection of sound-effects records, and more than a few tricks up their sleeves, their job was to create a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the German Army as their audience. This Ghost Army, conjured up phony convoys, phantom divisions, and make-believe headquarters to fool the enemy about the strength and location of American units. The Ghost Army of World War II is the first publication to tell their remarkable story.
Back by popular demand!
 
The Fifteenth Anniversary Edition of our offbeat classic celebrating the love and devotion of pet owners. Despite all the visual distractions of the digital age, one low-tech form of mass communication remains as popular as ever: the lost pet poster. Stapled to telephone poles and bulletin boards in cities and suburbs worldwide, these often hastily made signs are quirky combinations of hand-drawn illustration, emotional longing, and surprisingly offbeat humor. Lost features the most notable selections from artist and animal lover Ian Phillips's international collection. Featuring a veritable Noah's ark of animals--from everyday pets such as dog, cats, hamsters, and turtles to more unusual companions, including ferrets, parrots, cows, and cockatiels--these remarkable posters are a powerful testament to the love and devotion shared by pet owners everywhere.
Visually stunning personal art from the world's only crowdsourced sketchbook library
 
Destined to go down as one of the era's most astonishing global art projects, the Brooklyn Art Library's Sketchbook Project has, in less than a decade, amassed more than thirty thousand sketchbooks submitted by people of all ages and artistic abilities from more than 130 countries. Bursting with color, vivid imagery, and bouts of whimsy mixed with deeply intimate insights, the sketchbooks capture the texture of personal experience in a dizzying variety of illustrative styles and layouts that run the gamut from street portraits to stream-of-consciousness doodles, comics, and pop-ups.
"A welcome reminder, in the age of digital chatter, of the notebook's usefulness as a tool to quiet down."--NY Times
 
Based on one of the first of Ed Ruscha's celebrated "word pictures," this lined journal seems particularly relevant in today's world of nonstop media noise.
An intimate behind-the-scenes look at three working ballerinas becoming mothers
 
There are few jobs more rarefied or as physically and mentally demanding as prima ballerina. And yet, despite very real professional risks, three dancers from the world-class San Francisco Ballet all decided to have children at the pinnacle of their careers. In Balancing Acts, photographer Lucy Gray takes readers on an unforgettable fourteen-year journey with these ballerinas, capturing their remarkable grit and determination. In dramatic black-and white photography, Gray documents their struggles to balance the demands of family and work--from their tireless preparation in rehearsals and dazzling mastery of craft displayed on stage, to their time spent relaxing at home with family and even while giving birth.
