  • ‘Massimo Listri: The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries’ from Taschen

    ‘Massimo Listri: The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries’ from Taschen

    Personally, when I think about libraries, I think about cozy suburban branches, or massive modern downtown libraries, rather than the opulent cathedrals of learning that have been around for hundreds of years. Still, in browsing around the new Taschen joint Massimo Listri: The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries, I can see the appeal of the latter. As […]

  • Contact Warhol Project Releasing More Than 130,000 Unseen Photos

    Contact Warhol Project Releasing More Than 130,000 Unseen Photos

    It’s really too bad that legendary Pop Artist Andy Warhol didn’t live to see the age of social media, because his brand would be a perfect fit for Twitter or Instagram. The guy loved to take selfies, usually with a celebrity or famous face in tow, and now the Andy Warhol Foundation is releasing more […]

  • Charcoal Book Club: A New Coffee Table Book Every Month

    Charcoal Book Club: A New Coffee Table Book Every Month

    Book clubs, for various reasons, tend to be focused on content rather than collectibility. But we live in an age when there’s a subscription service for just about everything — like the Charcoal Book Club, which gives subscribers the opportunity to receive a new handsomely mounted coffee table photography book every month. The Charcoal Book Club’s […]

  • ‘Nudes': David Lynch Announces New Photography Book

    ‘Nudes': David Lynch Announces New Photography Book

    Filmmaker David Lynch tends to do a lot of weird stuff when he isn’t making films. There was his Flash animated series DumbLand (which I guess technically counts as filmmaking), a book on transcendental meditation, his flirtations with the exciting world of online content (like daily Los Angeles weather reports), and I seem to recall a line […]

  • ‘Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs’

    ‘Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs’

    There’s a re-release of 2001: A Space Odyssey coming out soon, which means it might be a good time for you to bone up on Stanley Kubrick if you’re not already familiar with his work. There’s no better way to do that than to just watch his movies, but a new book focuses on his profession before […]

  • ‘Use This If You Want to Take Great Photographs’

    ‘Use This If You Want to Take Great Photographs’

    Everybody’s an amateur photographer these days, but not everybody’s got The Eye – a cursory glance at your Instagram account will bear that out as likely as not. But there is a way to improve, to hone, to refine your skill as a photog, and a new book that purports to help you do that […]

  • ‘Moonshots: 50 Years of NASA Space Exploration Seen through Hasselblad Cameras’

    ‘Moonshots: 50 Years of NASA Space Exploration Seen through Hasselblad Cameras’

    Astronauts have to have nerves of steel, courage in the face of danger, and aptitude as pilots, engineers, scientists, and explorers. But there’s another underrated part of being an astronaut: Photography. Some of the most interesting snapshots from astronauts are found in the new book Moonshots: 50 Years of NASA Space Exploration Seen through Hasselblad […]

  • ‘Back to the Lab: Hip Hop Home Studios’ by Raph Rashid

    ‘Back to the Lab: Hip Hop Home Studios’ by Raph Rashid

    Hip hop is truly the music of the people, and for proof you just have to look at where it often comes from – home studios located in bedrooms, basements, sometimes even kitchens inside creators’ homes. It’s these music temples that are the subject of photographer Raph Rashid’s new book Back to the Lab: Hip […]

  • ‘Prince Pre Fame’ Book Showcases Photography by Robert Whitman

    ‘Prince Pre Fame’ Book Showcases Photography by Robert Whitman

    It’s weird to think about, but there was a time not so long ago when Prince wasn’t an internationally famous sex alien icon, but just a guy from Minneapolis who just signed a record deal. It’s this period that is the subject of an upcoming photography book entitled Prince Pre Fame, with shots taken by […]
