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.
"Looking through the book I was tempted to publish a picture book or start a magazine or open a museum just so he could design it."---Kurt Anderson, Studio 360
 
"Abbott Miller: Design and Content is the first monograph on the award-winning graphic designer known for his innovative work at Pentagram, where as a partner he leads a team designing books, magazines, catalogs, identities, exhibitions, and editorial projects.

In this lavishly illustrated edition, Miller presents his work as a catalog of design strategies, emerging from the unique circumstances of form and content. Four categories: Books, Exhibitions, Magazines, and Identity provide insight into Miller's influences and working process while showcasing his best designs.

In PetCam, author Chris Keeney (Pinhole Cameras) presents the first book-length collection of stills created by an international roster of four-legged photographers. With small, lightweight cameras on their collars and cowbells, these intrepid shutterbugs document their world as they go about their daily routines, lounging under cars, scaling rooftops, jumping fences, relaxing on a neighbor s lawn. By turns striking, curious, and just plain amusing, PetCam showcases the work of twenty creative pets, along with humorous and sometimes outrageous artistic statements describing the work in the animals' own voices. PetCam also includes tips and resources for readers who want to introduce their own pets to the joy of photography.
An extraordinary photographic record of New York's most notorious watering hole
 
In 1972 Shelly Nadelman began a ten-year run bartending at one of New York City s most notorious dives: the Terminal Bar, located across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal near Times Square. Right up until the bar closed for good in 1982, Nadelman shot thousands of black-and-white photographs, mostly portraits of his customers; neighborhood regulars, drag queens, thrill-seeking tourists, pimps and prostitutes, and midtown office workers dropping by before catching a bus home to the suburbs. Unseen for twenty years, this extraordinary archive features nine hundred duotone photographs accompanied by reminiscences in Shelly Nadelman's inimitable voice.
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.
