Since the beginning of his career, Swiss photographer Christian Tagliavini has been fascinated by mise-en-scène photography and Renaissance portraiture. Referencing the painting style of the Old Masters, his carefully-staged photo portraits exude the dignity and composure of 15th and 16th-century courtly culture, meticulously replicating their dimensions, framing, and chiaroscuro effects. After his breakthrough with the series 1503, Tagliavini returns to the art historical theme with his new series, 1406, published for the first time in this book. In his process, however, Tagliavini takes a step further back from the Renaissance artist ideal, pre-senting himself instead as a “photographic craftsman” who designs each of his costumes and props by hand with a small team. Particularly elaborate was the work on his most extensive series to-date, the Jules Verne-inspired Voyages Extra-ordinaires, for which Tagliavini constructed entire scenes according to both historical models and descriptions from Vernes’ novels. All of Tagliavini’s series are meticu-lously composed mise-en-scènes with a stunning, fan-tastical effect partly reminiscent of his early photographic idols Jeff Wall, Erwin Olaf, and Gregory Crewdson. This Tagliavini monograph includes all of his photograph-ic series to-date as well as the images documenting the evolution of his work at monthly intervals. The result is both a comprehensive Tagliavini catalogue and a fasci-nating insight into the working process of one of the most original and talented photographers working today.

This guide explores ways in which graphic designers can successfully collaborate with other creative professionals and sectors, whether it be a more sophisticated logo for a product, a better-designed lookbook for a fashion brand, or a more intuitive wayfinding system for a museum. The book features exceptionally conceived design solutions across a variety of industries—from architecture and product design to art, fashion, and film. Through dynamic spreads, readers will discover the Berlin-based studio Hort's transformative campaign for Nike; Base's responsive, flexible logo for Munich’s Haus der Kunst museum; how design agency Bond worked with ArtRabbit, a website and app that catalogs contemporary art exhibitions, on a clever identity rollout; and how John Haslam, managing director of bespoke paper company G.F Smith, feels about the process of working with designers. Each example illustrates the significance of the graphic designer’s role in making a campaign marketable and successful. Insights from clients and the designers themselves reveal the inner workings of the design process. An indispensable reference for the graphic design industry, this visually arresting and informative volume shows how excellence can be achieved when creative minds work together.

James Rosenquist Painting As Immersion

A monograph on the great Pop Art master, James Rosenquist, this book shows how the artist’s large-scale works and their source materials remain powerful and relevant as cultural and political commentary. With a background in advertising and painting billboards, James Rosenquist had a unique perspective on the dual effects of imagery and scale on the viewing experience. His colossal pieces are immersive—they surround the viewer and dominate most gallery spaces. In this volume readers can examine his process of creating image-laden abstractions through his source materials. Rosenquist often started with images he’d literally ripped from the pages of print media and which he then transformed into collages. From there he would scale up the collage, recreating it as a large-scale canvas or installation. This book presents both well-known and rarely exhibited pieces, including F-111 and The Swimmer in the Economist, to show how juxtaposing seemingly incongruent images creates a powerful mirror of commercialist culture. Essays about Rosenquist’s life, oeuvre, technique, and impact on the art world create a multi-faceted portrait of an artist who believed that the sum of the parts was essential to understanding the whole.

At once a reference work and a personal exploration of modernist architecture, this fascinating collection of Nicolas Grospierre’s photography covers structures built between 1920 and 1989 in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia. These images range from iconic buildings, such as the Gateway Arch in Saint Louis and the Ukrainian Institute of Scientific Research and Development in Kiev, to little-known structures such as the Balneological Hospital in Druskininkai, Lithuania or Oscar Niemeyer’s unfinished International Fair Grounds in Tripoli. Derived from his popular blog, A Subjective Atlas of Modern Architecture, and organized by architectural form, this book reveals how modernist architecture is the embodiment of political and social ideologies, especially in public institutions such as banks, churches, libraries, and government buildings. Following the series of full-page images, an index details the location, date, architect and purpose of each building. While many of the buildings in this archive often go unrecognized, their forms are prominent in the landscape of modern civilization. Grospierre’s keen eye and enthusiasm for the mundane as well as the sublime will motivate readers to look at the buildings around them in new and exciting ways.

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.

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.
