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.
A colorful introduction to modern architecture's most extraordinary homes.
 
Who Built That? Modern Houses takes readers on a fun-filled tour through ten of the most important houses by the greatest architects of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Beginning with a brief biographical sketch of each architect, illustrator Didier Cornille uses a light touch to depict the various stages of construction, paying special attention to key design innovations and signature details. Cornille's charming drawings and accessible text unlock the secrets of modern classic houses, ranging from Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye (1931) and Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater (1939) to Shigeru Ban's Cardboard House (1995) and Rem Koolhaas' Bordeaux House (1998).
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.
Features 150 quotes from an international roster of chefs, including Mario Batali, James Beard, Anthony Bourdain, Julia Child, Sally Clarke, Tom Colicchio, Elizabeth David, Thomas Keller, Eric Ripert, and Alice Waters
 
There's no room for manners in the professional kitchen, where the slightest stumble can send an entire restaurant into the weeds. So it follows that even in quieter moments, what chefs have to say is always opinionated and always illuminating. The Chef Says is an invitation to the ultimate food lover's dinner party, where cooks from ancient Greece rub shoulders and talk shop with today's rising stars. These unruly culinarians compliment, compete, and disagree with one another as they discuss childhood and training, taste preferences and trends, the quest for perfection, and the grueling but exhilarating business of opening a restaurant.
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.
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.
