Atlas of Brutalist Architecture:

"If you're down with concrete, check out Phaidon's latest book, Atlas of Brutalist Architecture. The stunning, 560-page coffee table tome shares more than 850 buildings, some which still exist and others that have been destroyed, that put the style on full display the world over." —Bloomberg

Factory: Andy Warhol:

"An illuminating art historical journey about Warhol's process. The distinctive formal qualities of his Factory images... presage Shore's celebrated career." —WSJ Magazine

Kate by Mario Sorrenti:

"Mario Sorrenti's photographs of his former girlfriend prove that intimacy can't be faked... Tender, sensual photographs." —Esquire

The High Line:

"A guide to the rebirth of New York City's High Line, the book shows the formerly derelict site's makeover into an alluring community space and tourist attraction." —Time

Vitamin C: Clay and Ceramic in Contemporary Art:

"Expands the definition of "ceramics" way, way past pretty pastel coffee mugs and grain-bowl bowls." —New York Magazine Online

Body of Art:

"Works are often presented in unlikely but enlightening pairings... With modest design and concise commentary; this is an intelligent, illuminating survey of a topic that has an enduring appeal." —Daily Telegraph

JR: Can Art Change the World?:

"The book is an inspiration for those trying to create socially engaged art and make a difference in marginalized communities." —Smithsonian Magazine

Noma:

"The hottest topic in the food world. While Noma is all about Nordic cuisine, its philosophy is about the cuisine of wherever you are." —Kitchen Daily
