The first photography book focusing solely on creatures of the night.
 
Whether cuddly, fierce, mysterious, or some ineffable combination of all three, nocturnal animals never fail to fascinate. In Nocturne, celebrated animal photographer Traer Scott brings us face-to-face with the planet s most captivating nocturnal creatures. Bats, hyenas, barn owls, kangaroo rats, giant moths, Indian flying foxes, several species of snakes, and a Madagascar hissing cockroach are all dramatically lit against black backgrounds, creating ultravivid animal portraits that pop off the page. Scott presents eighty-five full-color photographs of forty different species from every corner of the world, accompanied by informative descriptions of each animal's habits and habitats.
The much-anticipated follow-up to our bestselling Natural Architecture is here.
 
Our 2007 hit Natural Architecture introduced artists and architects who transform the act of building into a fascinating new art form. Built from humble elements, branches, twigs, straw, bamboo, and fulfilling a wide variety of intentions, their fantastical creations resonate with an innate natural beauty. Natural Architecture Now features all-new site-specific installations by an international list of contributors. From an engineered oasis and climbing structure in Joshua Tree National Park to an intricate bamboo installation on top of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to a residential mud structure prototype created by Architecture for Humanity Tehran, each project points a way forward for architects to engineer a new organic simplicity of structure and form.
Never-before-seen photos of screen legends at work, including Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean, Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, Robert De Niro, and Alfred Hitchcock
 
There is a voyeuristic thrill in contact sheets. You look directly through the photographer's eyes as each photo gets closer to that perfect shot. And yet, it's often the photos not chosen that best capture the true spirit of their subjects. This was never truer than in the classic Hollywood era, where behind-the-scenes photos were carefully vetted for marketing purposes and unapproved shots were never expected to be seen again. Hollywood Frame by Frame presents hundreds of never-before-published photos from the sets of some of the greatest films of the twentieth century, including classics such as Some Like It Hot, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Taxi Driver, and The Silence of the Lambs.
A typographic love letter to Italy that will be an inspiration to designers and Italophiles everywhere.
 
For more than three decades, renowned graphic designer and self described Italophile Louise Fili has traveled the cities and countryside of Italy cataloging the work of sign craftsmen in whose hands type takes on new life with a tantalizing menu of styles. Classical, eclectic, or Futurist; in gold leaf, marble, brass, wood, wrought iron, enamel, ceramic, or neon; painted, carved, inlaid, etched, tiled, or stenciled, the creative possibilities are endless. Grafica della Strada is Fili's photographic diary of hundreds of Italy s most inventive restaurant, shop, hotel, street, and advertising signs.
Mr. Mothersbaugh works in virtually every form and medium, and his work has always been unified and singular (perhaps a result of the simple fact that it all comes from the same exotic and densely populated alien planet: his brain). For forty years, he has set about creating a body of work that amounts to his own Magic Kingdom.--Wes Anderson
 
Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia features a lifetime of his creative inventions from the beginning of his artistic career in the 1970s to his most recent work, including early postcards, screen prints, decals, and Devo ephemera as well as later paintings, photographs (such as the celebrated Beautiful Mutants series), sculpture, and rugs. Accompanied by a major six-city traveling exhibition, this richly illustrated catalog positions Mothersbaugh as a pivotal figure in the history of both contemporary art and indie culture.
Master photographer Fred Lyon's noirish vision of the iconic landscapes and one-of-a-kind personalities that transformed the city by the bay into a legend.
 
San Francisco might be the world's most picturesque city. And yet, the Golden City is so much more than postcard vistas. It s a town alive with history, culture, and a palpable sense of grandeur best captured by a man known as San Francisco's Brassai. Walking the city's foggy streets, the fourth-generation San Franciscan captures the local's view in dramatic black and white photos, from fog-drenched mornings in North Beach and cable cars on Market Street to moody night shots of Coit Tower and the twists and turns of Lombard Street.
