Lists It Appears On:

  • Booklist 2

With spare, direct text by Minh Lê and luminous illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat, this stirring picturebook about reaching across barriers will be cherished for years to come.




14 .) Flowers for Lisa: A Delirium of Photographic Invention

Lists It Appears On:

  • PDN
  • Publishers Weekly

Best known for his surreal camera obscura pictures and luminous black-and-white photographs of books, photographer Abelardo Morell now turns his transformative lens to one of the most common of artistic subjects, the flower. The concept for Flowers for Lisa emerged when Morell gave his wife, Lisa, a photograph of flowers on her birthday. “Flowers are part of a long tradition of still life in art,” writes Morell. “Precisely because flowers are such a conventional subject, I felt a strong desire to describe them in new, inventive ways.” With nods to the work of Jan Brueghel, Édouard Manet, Georgia O’Keeffe, René Magritte, and others, Morell does just that; the images are as innovative as they are arresting.




13 .) Fryderyk Chopin: A Life and Times written by Alan Walker

Lists It Appears On:

  • Booklist 1
  • Kirkus

Based on ten years of research and a vast cache of primary sources located in archives in Warsaw, Paris, London, New York, and Washington, D.C., Alan Walker’s monumental Fryderyk Chopin: A Life and Times is the most comprehensive biography of the great Polish composer to appear in English. Walker’s work is a corrective biography, intended to dispel the many myths and legends that continue to surround Chopin. Fryderyk Chopin is an intimate look into a dramatic life; of particular focus are Chopin’s childhood and youth in Poland, which are brought into line with the latest scholarly findings, and Chopin’s romantic life with George Sand, with whom he lived for nine years.

Hey, Kiddo traces Krosoczka’s search for his father, his difficult interactions with his mother, his day-to-day life with his grandparents, and his path to becoming an artist. To date, nearly one million people have viewed Krosoczka’s TED Talk about his experience.

Lists It Appears On:

  • Elizabeth Avedon Journal
  • Publishers Weekly

The Art of Reading presents New York photographer Lawrence Schwartzwald’s (born 1953) candid images of readers, made between 2001 and 2017. Partly inspired by André Kertész’s On Reading(1971), Schwartzwald’s subjects are mostly average New Yorkers―sunbathers, a bus driver, shoeshine men, subway passengers, denizens of bookshops and cafes―but also artists (most notably Amy Winehouse at Manhattan’s now-closed all-night diner Florent).




6 .) The Beat Scene: Burt Glinn’s Vivid Portrait of a Subculture

Lists It Appears On:

  • Magnum Photos
  • PDN

This magnificent volume features a remarkable collection of largely unseen photographs of the Beat Generation by renowned Magnum photographer Burt Glinn. This amazing, untouched treasure trove of images was discovered when Reel Art Press was working with Burt Glinn’s widow, Elena, on a larger retrospective of Glinn’s work. Archived with the negatives was a short essay by Jack Kerouac entitled “And This Is The Beat Nightlife of New York,” which is published here alongside the photographs. The book features black-and-white shots, and also—uniquely, for images of this era—more than 70 in color. An extremely rare find, these photographs capture the raw energy of the Beat Generation in a way that has never been seen before in print.




5 .) The Hunt: Navigating the Worlds of Art and Design written by Patrick Parrish

Lists It Appears On:

  • Dwell
  • PDN

In this little gem of a book Patrick Parrish, of the eponymous Patrick Parrish Gallery in New York, offers advice, stories, gossip, and pointers on how to go about acquiring top-quality art and design from flea markets all the way up to the finest auction houses in the world. With over 25 years of hard-won experience in the trenches as a picker, collector, and dealer he tells you what to do, what not to do, and how to negotiate the often-confusing labyrinths that international galleries, auction houses, and even flea markets can present.




4 .) The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons: A Semi-serious A-to-Z Archive written by Bob Markoff, ed.

Lists It Appears On:

  • Amazon
  • Folio

The is the most ingenious collection of New Yorker cartoons published in book form, The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons is a prodigious, slip-cased, two-volume, 1,600-page A-to-Z curation of cartoons from the magazine from 1924 to the present. Mankoff–for two decades the cartoon editor of the New Yorker–organizes nearly 3,000 cartoons into more than 250 categories of recurring New Yorker themes and visual tropes, including cartoons on banana peels, meeting St. Peter, being stranded on a desert island, snowmen, lion tamers, Adam and Eve, the Grim Reaper, and dogs, of course. The result is hilarious and Mankoff’s commentary throughout adds both depth and whimsy. The collection also includes a foreword by New Yorker editor David Remnick. This is stunning gift for the millions of New Yorker readers and anyone looking for some humor in the evolution of social commentary.




3 .) Transcendental Concord written by Lisa McCarty

Lists It Appears On:

  • Elizabeth Avedon Journal
  • PDN

Transcendental Concord documents the spirit of Transcendentalism, the literary and philosophical movement that arose in the mid-19thcentury. While the circle of Transcendentalists in New England was wide, at its center was a core group that lived in Concord, Massachusetts.Bronson Alcott and daughter Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson,Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau lived within a few miles of each other for nearly 20 years, regularlymeeting in each other’s homes and on the paths of Walden Woods todiscuss their writings and beliefs. In the course of a year and in every season North-Carolina based photographer Lisa McCarty photographed thesites where these Transcendentalists lived and wrote in Concord.McCarty’s parallel reverence for the natural world is evident in herphotographs which point to large and small variations in environment,season and light. McCarty uses long exposures and camera movement inorder to capture these variations. Transcendental Concord payshomage to Transcendentalism not only in capturing a shared landscape,but in McCarty’s technique: her keen observation of natural phenomenaand openness to experimentation and chance.




2 .) Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness written by Renee Mussai

Lists It Appears On:

  • New York Times
  • PDN

Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness is the long-awaited monograph from one of the most powerful visual activists of our time. The book features over ninety of Muholi’s evocative self-portraits, each image drafted from material props in Muholi’s immediate environment. A powerfully arresting collection of work, Muholi’s radical statements of identity, race, and resistance are a direct response to contemporary and historical racisms. As Muholi states, “I am producing this photographic document to encourage individuals in my community to be brave enough to occupy spaces―brave enough to create without fear of being vilified. . . . To teach people about our history, to rethink what history is all about, to reclaim it for ourselves―to encourage people to use artistic tools such as cameras as weapons to fight back.




1 .) Ninth Street Women: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler; Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art written by Mary Gabriel

Lists It Appears On:

  • Booklist 1
  • Kirkus
  • New York Times

Gutsy and indomitable, Lee Krasner was a hell-raising leader among artists long before she became part of the modern art world’s first celebrity couple by marrying Jackson Pollock. Elaine de Kooning, whose brilliant mind and peerless charm made her the emotional center of the New York School, used her work and words to build a bridge between the avant-garde and a public that scorned abstract art as a hoax. Grace Hartigan fearlessly abandoned life as a New Jersey housewife and mother to achieve stardom as one of the boldest painters of her generation. Joan Mitchell, whose notoriously tough exterior shielded a vulnerable artist within, escaped a privileged but emotionally damaging Chicago childhood to translate her fierce vision into magnificent canvases. And Helen Frankenthaler, the beautiful daughter of a prominent New York family, chose the difficult path of the creative life. Her gamble paid off: At twenty-three she created a work so original it launched a new school of painting.
