Where before they were divided between the Art, Design, Fashion and even Children’s Books, we now finally have a real Illustration books section at ABC Amsterdam. Here you’ll find books by classic illustrators such as Charley Harper and Norman Rockwell as well as contemporary illustrators published by UK’s Nobrow. Infographics and some very lovely children’s books are represented here too; we’re especially excited about Gestalten’s new children’s books: Little Gestalten. One of their first titles coming up is Issun Boshi: The One-Inch Boy.
Whitechapel: Documents of Contemporary Art is a series of anthologies. Each volume focuses on a specific theme or subject that has been a major influence in contemporary art. Each subject is edited by a different critic, curator, scholar or artist who provides texts by voices from different fields, defining the specific theme of the volume.
MIT Press, in combination with Whitechapel Gallery, has already published over 30 volumes with subjects such as Colour, The Archive, Chance, Documentary, Nature, Sound, and Appropriation. Any reader interested in art will get a lot out of these books, not only students and professionals in the field. Later this year the series will expand with Sexuality and Exhibition.
Personally, I think this is an excellent series of theory books that deserves a wide audience.
