Playful Data: Graphic Design and Illustration for Infographics features brilliant and illustrative infographic projects from gifted graphic designers, illustrators, artists, and even scientists. Not only do they visualize data in a tangible and memorable way through playful illustrations, but they also provide us with inspiration for balancing colors, words, and images, as well as for distinguishing between primary and secondary information when data is presented alongside pictures. The projects revealed in this volume are divided into three main categories: statistical findings, flow diagrams, and instruction and explanation. Some of the projects illustrate data acquired from rigorous and precise scientific research, while others are the product of designers’ imagination and experimentation. It’s time to learn to play with data!

As an artist, Paul Cézanne sought to capture the secrets and essence of the world around him—a world he perceived as phenomena constantly in flux. This book explores Cézanne’s oeuvre through the lens of that philosophy, thoughtfully organizing individual works into a series of thematic phases. Breaking up pictorial genres, it sheds light on the fluid interplay among the artist’s still lifes, landscapes, and portraits. Cézanne’s practice of studying and imitating his predecessors and contemporaries is explored as a fundamental feature of his work. It also delves into the artist’s reliance on his emotional, rather than objective, perception of reality. Filled with full color reproductions of the artist’s famous and lesser-known works, as well as illuminating essays by leading curators and critics, this groundbreaking exploration offers readers an unprecedented appraisal of one of the world’s most loved artists.

The contemporary art scene has been booming for years. From major art events like the Venice Biennale and documenta to Frieze and the Art Basel art fairs, a record number of visitors around the world flock to survey, critique, and buy contemporary art masterpieces every year. Private art collectors have become indispensable lenders to major museums and sometimes make their acquisitions accessible to the public; and in auction houses, contemporary artists have long since surpassed some of the classics. With the ever-shifting abundance of hot new artists and contemporary art trends, it’s barely possible for even the experts to keep a discerning overview. For budding art collectors looking to invest in contemporary art, it is increasingly difficult to discover and decipher what are currently deemed the ‘most important’ contemporary art galleries. This is the purpose served by Contemporary Art Review: a crisp, clean survey of the most influential players in the contemporary art scene, featuring all the leading contemporary art galleries, their most notable works, and their most relevant and significant artists, from big names to exciting contemporary artists on the rise. For the art connoisseur as well as the curious new art collector alike, Contemporary Art Review offers swift entry into a world not easily accessible.

This is Not a F*cking Street Style Book is the first monograph of cult photographer and influencer, Adam Katz Sinding (aka Le 21ème), an astute documentarian of major fashion events, top brands, tastemakers, and trendsetters since 2003. For a long time, streetwear was nothing more than the rebel kid brother of high fashion. With his candid, fashion forward-scouting photos, Katz Sinding shows how streetwear has transformed into a leading style reference pioneering trends, championing creativity, and inspiring high fashion designers the world over. Today, the flair of streetwear is as likely to be seen on the runways of Milan, New York, and London as on the streets themselves. This bold fashion book brings together Katz Sinding’s most striking streetwear images, both on the streets and backstage at more than 20 fashion shows around the globe. With his unique backstage access, Katz Sinding captures such top designers, supermodels, and stylists as Kris van Assche (Christian Dior), Lucas Ossendrijver (Lanvin) and Grace Coddington (Vogue), as well as contemporary fashion icons such as Virgil Abloh, Imaan Hammam, and Luka Sabbat. The book also features a fascinating conversational piece on the streetwear phenomenon between Adam Katz Sinding, Virgil Abloh (founder of Off-White), and MENDO.

More than 60 million people visit New York City each year. Every single traveler experiences the city in a unique way. There is no such thing as one New York. Streets of New York is a New York photo book that celebrates the Big Apple’s tremendous diversity by bringing together over 40 contemporary photographers and their multiple perspectives on this unique metropolis. Often drawing on a strong social media presence, each photographer offers her or his personal take on New York’s unparalleled vibrancy, impact, and allure, creating both a rich collection of city photography and street style, and a visual catalogue of New York travel inspirations. Photographs of world-renowned New York landmarks and attractions like the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, and World Trade Center Transportation Hub are interspersed with pictures of New York’s hidden treasures, tucked-away Manhattan charms, and lesser known, but equally interesting New York City districts—all captured with a present-day attention to detail and a wide-eyed love for the City that Never Sleeps.

Fifty percent of the world’s flower species are threatened with extinction. Each year, numerous flowers disappear from the face of the Earth without ever being documented. Indeed, many of these natural beauties remain as yet unknown to humankind. Photographer Richard Fischer can be regarded as an ambassador for flowers. For many years, he has staged graceful and endangered floral specimens in his photo studio, capturing the uniqueness and transience of each flower. In collaboration with the world’s leading botanical gardens, his strikingly original images provide the flowers with an aesthetic framework in which their power of expression and majesty remain intact. Fischer’s precise, yet delicate floral compositions record the unique color, form, and texture of each flower, while signaling to the extraordinary beauty, diversity, and fragility of the natural world. Fischer’s inimitable flower photographs have bestowed him with exhibitions around the world: at the United Nations in New York, the Palais des Nations in Geneva, and the renowned China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. Richard Fischer prints are much sought after collector’s items in the art photography market and calendars of his flower images appear annually. Now, for the first time, Richard Fischer brings together his best pictures spanning 15 years in one flower photo- graphy book, showcasing his artwork and little-known floral exotica. Throughout the volume, the photographs are accompanied by informative and captivating texts, leading the reader through an unknown and dwindling world of flowers.

This is a book that pays tribute to the mythical Twin Peaks series of the 1990s that revolutionized television and created countless followers. Created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, we were introduced to Dale Cooper, an eccentric FBI agent addicted to coffee and cake, who had to investigate the murder of a popular girl named Laura Palmer. These geniuses set a precedent in 1990, and twenty-five years later, just as Laura Palmer promises at the end of the second season, they have returned to continue to fascinate the public from that small town called Twin Peaks.
