"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. Collaborating with performers, curators, artists, photographers, writers, publishers, corporations, and institutions, Miller has created a unique practice that alternates between the printed page and the physical space of exhibitions. 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.
See the world through the eyes of your pet.
 
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
