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.
"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.
America's secret plan to invade Canada, and theirs to invade us!
 
The world's friendliest border is also the longest, but these peacful neighbors haven't always been so friendly. This lighthearted history describes more than two centuries of border squabbles, battles, culminating in detailed plans for full-on invasions, offering both a quick overview of American-Canadian history along with plenty of unintentional silliness along the way.
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.
Capturing the world's color palettes in watercolor
 
Whenever we first encounter a new place, whether landscape or cityscape, one of the most immediate and powerful sensations comes from its colors, or the palette of colors, which profoundly influence our reaction to and sense of a space. In Local Color, designer and educator Mimi Robinson teaches us not only how to see the colors around us but also how to capture and record them in watercolor. Regardless of your level of expertise, Robinson will quickly have you creating personal memories of time, travel, and place through a series of self-guided exercises and illustrated examples.
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.
