Andy Goldsworthy: Ephemeral Works: 2004-2014 Andy Goldsworthy: Ephemeral Works: 2004-2014
by Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy has made works of art using the materials and conditions that he encounters wherever he is: the land around his Scottish home, the mountains of France or Spain, or the streets of New York City, Glasgow, or Rio de Janeiro. Out of earth, rocks, leaves, ice, snow, rain, sunlight and shadow he makes artworks that exist briefly before they are altered and erased by natural processes. His extraordinary new book features approximately 200 photographs of these works, selected by Goldsworthy himself.

Mary Ellen Mark: Tiny, Streetwise Revisited Mary Ellen Mark: Tiny, Streetwise Revisited
by Mary Ellen Mark (with contributors Isabelle Allende, John Irving, & Martin Bell)

In 1988, Mary Ellen Mark published a poignant document of a fiercely independent group of homeless and troubled youth living in Seattle as pimps, prostitutes, panhandlers and small-time drug dealers. Critically acclaimed, "Streetwise" introduced us to individuals who were not easily forgotten, including "Tiny" (Erin Blackwell)--a 13-year-old prostitute. Since meeting Tiny 30 years ago, Mark has continued to photograph her, creating what has become one of Mark's most significant and long-term projects.

Picasso Sculpture Picasso Sculpture
by Ann Tempkin

An extensive survey of the artist's innovative and influential sculptural work, this amazing book is published in conjunction with the first large-scale retrospective of Picasso's sculpture in the US since The Museum of Modern Art's historic show of 1967. Over the course of his long career, Picasso devoted himself to sculpture wholeheartedly, if episodically, using both traditional and unconventional materials and techniques. He kept the majority of his sculptures in his private possession during his lifetime, and it was only in the late 1960s that the public became fully aware of this side of his oeuvre.

Sinatra 100 Sinatra 100
by Charles Pignone

A great gift for Sinatra fans, this revelatory new pictorial life of the greatest entertainer of the twentieth century spans from inciting bobby-soxer riots and achieving teen idol status in the 1940s to the incredible recording career, the film career, the Rat Pack and Las Vegas. Includes unseen photographs (and the iconic ones) as well as a rare trove of memorabilia and ephemera, over half of it never before published.
