〰 brilliant. wildschut tackles the complexity of the refugee crisis by documenting the inception, growth & destruction of the calais jungle. a typology of makeshift shelters & shops provides an overwhelming testament to human resilience. reference numbers on pages direct the viewer to a chronological image index, systematically recording the jungle lifecycle of each dwelling or landmark & the lives of the inhabitants within. there is much to admire about this book, from intention through to design—this is self publishing at its finest. 〰ville de calais // henk wildschut / 2017 / 9789082588507 / @henkwild #villedecalais #henkwildschut #calaisjungle #photobooks #books

〰 soul food for the memphis addict. du pasquier books are few & too far between. this one is a feast for NDP obsessives, a fittingly beautiful homage to her work & ways. there's few cooler art accolades than being the youngest founding member of the memphis group. it was however, du pasquier's turn to painting in 1987 & subsequent still lifes, constructions, & drawings that have become the focus of her career & also this book set. spines of both volumes (artist book + monograph) are bound elegantly with black cloth. each page a lesson in the arrangements of objects & the complexities & components of the spaces that exist between them. seriously magnificent. 〰 big objects not always silent // nathalie du pasquier / ed. luca lo pinto / 2016 / sternberg press & kunsthalle wien / 9783956792557 / @sternbergpress @kunsthallewien #nathaliedupasquier #lucalopinto #kunsthallewien #bigobjectsnotalwayssilent #memphisgroup #stilllife #painters #abstract #artbooks #sternbergpress #tankboys #💯

〰 terunobu fujimori's work sits more than a few notches up from inspired, sits up there in the air like his magical dr.seuss-like too-high teahouses. the most comprehensive monograph of fujimori currently in print, the eye candy in this book is matched in spades by its heart. this guy runs with 2 rules of design only: create buildings unlike any others & use natural materials to aesthetically harmonise structure with nature. pages are peppered with eloquence—a musing on bruegel, a short lesson in the tradition of tea ceremony, the craftsmanship of hand rolled copper roofing. this is fujimori at his most wonderful. 〰 fujimori // terunobu fujimori / 2007 / toto / 9784887062832 / #fujimori #terunobufujimori #toto #towardanarchitectureofhumankind #chashitsutetsu #takasugian #toohighteahouse #plants #teahouses #teaceremony #japan #wood #architecture #architecturedetectives #2107 #japanesearchitecture #🌱

〰ain't nobody makes cooler books than calle. always a rich fusion of project & print, this one is a tactile feast. braille detailing & papers of varying weight & texture are cleverly designed to reveal & narrate. calle's photographs lay sandwiched peek-a-boo style in cut back pages, surrounded by the words of the blind subjects profiled. this triptych of work from 1986-2010 ask those without sight their thoughts on beauty, the last image they can recall, & draws comparisons with artists' writings on the monochrome. calle's curiosity & sincerity towards scooping the guts out of human experience is at full-mast here, the viewer left to wonder & reflect on her discoveries. this is a book that will crawl inside you & stay—fascinating stuff. 〰 blind // sophie calle / 2011 / actes sud / 9782330000585 / #sophiecalle #actessud #blind #artbook #books #braille #borges #klein #malevich #manzoni #rauschenberg #reinhardt #richter #monochrome

〰 photobook hall of fame. it was almost 2 years after announcement & an agonizingly slow paddle across the ocean before this one arrived to the longest waitlist for an art book we've ever had before or since. legendary. 〰 minutes to midnight // trent parke / 2013 / steidl / 9783869302058 @steidlverlag #trentparke #steidl #minutestomidnight #photobooks #artbooks #books #straya

〰 such beautiful theatre. delicious black paper provides the dramatic backdrop to hornillos' rewards for 3 years of shooting the hypnotic orange brick walls of madrid's atocha train station. snapped at the same hour of each day, his arresting observations on passage & rendezvous provide a microcosm of life as subjects parade in various states of inward & outward disarray. people are met on the street by a lover's embrace or their own demons. animals are beloved companions, stray castaways, or free flying pigeons—such is the pot luck of life that hornillos' world turns on. this book is entirely special. 〰 mediodía // david hornillos / 2014 / dalpine / 9788461699186 / #dalpine #davidhornillos #mediodia #freeflyingpigeon #madrid #spain #artbooks #books #photobook #blackpaper #laabf2017 #fave #smellsgood #🍊

〰 always a sucker for a tiny book. taiwanese self taught painter & current girl crush, hai-hsin huang, takes matchbox size book making to a new level. micro portrait studies of met gallery-goers are executed with her signature quirk, acute observation & lightness of touch. copies 1-200 hand pressed by nos:books with hohner boston IV letterpress. delightful. 〰 now is the past / hai-hsin huang / 2016 / ltd 800 / @hhhstudio @nosbooks #nowisthepast #haihsinhuang #nosbooks #taiwan #artbooks #oogabooga #books #letterpress #tiny #portrait #70

〰 so many feels. the exquisite production of this book, bound by shinoharashikou co., sets the perfect stage for yajima’s quiet poetry. faceless figures peer around foreboding buildings, a hammershøi-like neck nape sits subdued amongst increasingly eerie self-imposed barricades from nature. our man made world is progressing gently, brutally & relentlessly ahead. this book lingers in all the best ways. 〰 ourselves 1981 // yosuke yajima / 2015 / ltd ed 500 / @yjmysk28 #yosukeyajima #shinoharashiko #artbooks #photobooks #book #architecture #urbanisation #nature #art #paper #binding
