Frontcountry
By Lucas Foglia
$50 Signed — Purchase Book

Frontcountry by Lucas Foglia documents the changing American West as seen in some of the most sparsely populated areas in the country in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Wyoming. Foglia presents the familiar expansive beauty of the American West, but also offers a view of the mining boom that is spreading across these rural areas. Though a combination of stunning portraits and spectacular landscapes, Foglia depicts the complicated relationship between the landscape and the people who live in it, and how each shapes the other.






This Equals That
By Jason Fulford & Tamara Shopsin
$19.95 — Purchase Book

From Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin, This Equals That is a fun exploration of visual language and association, featuring a sequence of bold, graphic images each presented with a pair of connecting images. Though framed as a children's book, the bright colors, strong graphics, funny juxtapositions and brilliant sequencing will appeal to young and old alike, taking the reader on visual journey and teaching a lesson along the way.








The Beats
By Larry Fink
$55 Signed — Purchase Book

The Beats presents a series of photographs from early in the photographic carrier of Larry Fink. Made of the course of a year at the tail-end of the 1950s, Fink found himself in a tenuous friendship with a group of second generation Beats who made more than willing subjects for his photographs. Fink captured their exploits in and around their Greenwich Village subbasement apartment and on a road trip to Mexico where they eventually parted ways. These portraits are a fascinating glimpse into Fink's early photography and typify the end of an iconic era.





Francesca Woodman: Works from the Sammlung Verbund
Edited and with text by Gabriele Schor & Elisabeth Bronfen
$65 — Purchase Book

Despite the tragic brevity of her photograph career, Francesca Woodman's evocative portraits have left a indelible impression on the photography world. Works from the Sammlung Verbund is the most comprehensive monograph of Woodman's work to date featuring 80 photographs and 20 previously unpublished works and also includes several firsts in the presentation of Woodman and her work: this is the first book to reproduce her photographs at their original sizes and represent her odd way of placing the photograph on the paper, and is also the first to give a detailed, illustrated biography of her life.






Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Illustrated by Maggie Taylor
$80 — Purchase Book

Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a complete reproduction of the original text illustrated by 40 of Maggie Taylor's photomontages. Incorporating antique photographs, scanned objects and painterly technique, Taylor's vibrant and surreal images bring new vision to this well-known classic, re-imaging its cast of characters through the lens of photographic portraiture around the time Carroll was writing.
