Steve Powers’ Love Letter, writ large

A hearty congratulations to PAPress author Lois Weinthal who just received the 2014 Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC) Book Award for Toward a New Interior!
It was also a Designers & Books Notable Book of 2011:
"If you are looking for good books on interior design theory, the pickings are quite slim. Lois Weinthals massive 648-page reader redresses this with a carefully curated collection of 48 essays, with texts by Wim Wenders, Le Corbusier, Beatriz Colomina, and (my favorite) Juhani Pallasmaa.” —Paul Makovsky of Metropolis magazine

75 Artist Books: The Kaldewey Press, New York
A Catalog Raisonné by Clemens von Lucius

In this abundantly illustrated catalogue raisonné, collector and Kaldewey devotee Clemens von Lucius presents in detail all seventy-five books published by the Kaldewey Press since its founding in 1985 by Gunnar A. Kaldewey. 

While few small presses have managed to produce such a large body of work, the Kaldewey Press has earned the reputation as one of the world’s finest publishers of contemporary artist books. 75 Artist Books presents work published in cooperation with artists such as Mischa Kuball, Jonathan Lasker, Heribert C. Ottersbach, Richard Tuttle, and Hans Peter Willberg.

Check out this recent title from Hermann Schmidt Mainz, distributed in North America by Princeton Architectural Press.

New trailer for The Big Picture by AMC president Josh Sapan, one of our favorite recent books.

Sapan’s book, containing nearly 100 panoramic images, reveals how these “strange and compelling” photos blur the line between fact and fiction—and why, in the early 20th century, Americans couldn’t get enough of them.
