Birds of the West Indies
By Taryn Simon
$68.00-$85.00

Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by:
Melanie McWhorter

"This is yet another of Taryn Simon's soon-to-be-classics of photobook publishing after An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar and A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters, I-XVII. For this book, the artist now looks at the inventory of items used in James Bond films including women, weapons and vehicles: Solitaire (Jane Seymour), 1973, 1965 Aston Martin DB5 and Razor-edged Bowler Hat, 1964 are among over 196 color illustrations."  —Melanie McWhorter

Alec Soth

"Nothing gives me more inspiration than seeing a great artist successfully shift gears. Rinko Kawauchi made her reputation by making photographs that look like they were seen through the near-focused eyes of a newborn. With Ametsuchi, Kawauchi steps back, way back, and slows down. The book is a quiet and mature revelation." —Alec Soth

Etan & Me
By Viviane Sassen
$90.00


Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by:
Christopher McCall

"Viviane Sassen has put together another strong book. Well edited and concise, Etan & Me explores ideas related to the self and other. Beautiful, colorful photographs of Etan are paired with fluid, abstract portraits of Sassen, which appear to be photographed via reflections on crumbled metallic paper. They create a great rhythm throughout the book, and the design and feel make it the perfect companion to Sassen’s last book with Oodee, Roxane. " —Christopher McCall

Melanie McWhorter

"The Archive of Modern Conflict has produced a number of impressive issues of their journal over the year, and Issue 8 is a perfect example of why I love what they’re doing. Another publication created from Thomas Sauvin’s remarkable photo-collection project in China (he’s also responsible for Silvermine), Issue 8 features a collection of full-length portraits presented in the kind of design that inspires engagement." —Sarah Bradley

La Rue
By Samuel W. Grant
$35.00

Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by:
Blake Andrews

"A small collection of European streetscapes bearing not a whiff of the modern world. Shot in black and white with plastic cameras over the course of several years, then printed in a tidy volume not much larger than a sandwich. Tasty." —Blake Andrews

Foreclosures
By Bruce Gilden
$55.00

Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by:
10x10 Photobooks

"Overgrown lots with abandoned homes plastered with 'For Rent' or 'For Sale' signs are the residual of the subprime mortgage crisis, which began in 2008. In stark black and white images devoid of people, Bruce Gilden’s Foreclosures documents depressed communities in Fort Myers, FL, Detroit, MI and Fresno, CA ravaged by this recent American economic crisis. An extremely powerful book that harnesses a deceptively quiet design to deliver its message." —10x10 Photobooks

The Hidden Mother
By Linda Fregni Nagler
$55.00

Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by:
Anne Kelly
Melanie McWhorter

"The Hidden Mother is a look into the past. This book revels over 1000 found historic images from the collection of Fregni Nagler of cloaked mothers holding their babies attempting to blend into the background. At the time that these photographs were made it was necessary to keep the baby still based on long exposure times, so this was a common practice. These images give a visual perspective as to how much photography has changed in 100 years." —Anne Kelly

The Photography of Nature & The Nature of Photography 
By Joan Fontcuberta
$55.00

Selected as a Best Book of 2013 by:
Elisa Medde
Manik Katyal

"This publication comes after Joan Fontcuberta was granted with the Hasselblad Award 2013. Beautifully produced by MACK, it presents as a unique, fantastic journey in six different series spanning from 1984 to 2002. Through a fascinating wandering through botany, zoology, astronomy, cosmonautics, paleontology, geography and geology, Fontcuberta makes us test the limits of our desire to believe in photography, as Geoffrey Batchen writes in the accompanying text." —Elisa Medde
