This is a book about New York City, as seen through the eyes and sensibilities of Danish architect and artist Mikael Olrik. The combination of watercolor, photograph and text offers the reader an original, multi-dimensional experience of a city so well known and yet still to be discovered, still mystifying. Trained to identify both what is important and what is distinctive, Olrik is gifted, with an intuitive sense of what to capture, what is abiding and totemic about a particular place. While one might anticipate the pastoral Central Park scenes and such landmarks as the Empire State Building and Brooklyn Bridge, the images of Soho tenements and Williamsburg street scenes serve as stark reminders that New York may very well be the most complex city in the world, a city Mikael Olrik respectfully refers to as a living organism. After many extended stays there, he is comfortable in New York; always ready to process its changes and embrace its surprises, but never complacent or jaded.'Walks in My New York" is just that - a strolling, personal tour of New York City and parts of four of its boroughs. Thoughtful guide, Mikael invites you to join him. Positioning you at each stop, he gives you the broad view of an architect, the specificity of an artist, the straight-forwardness of a photographer, and the companionable text of a diarist. You are drawn in and made complicit in the experience. As a bonus, small maps accompany each entry and act as a sort of 'GPS' in print. Mikael Olrik sees to it that you have everything you need to explore a great and restless city abounding in sights and stories. Everything, that is, except a pair of sturdy walking shoes!

The Benezit Dictionary of British Graphic Artists and Illustrators consists of over 3,000 entries on a range of British artists, from medieval manuscript illuminators to contemporary cartoonists. Its core is comprised of the entries focusing on British graphic artists and illustrators from the 2006 Benezit Dictionary of Artists with an additional 90 revised and 60 new articles. The collection highlights the rich history of British printmaking-both fine art prints and mass print media-and related activities in the production and illustration of printed books and manuscripts. Because of Benezit's focus on European artists of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, this collection provides comprehensive coverage of British graphic art and illustration during their most significant periods of development. Entries provide straightforward, concise narratives of the artists' lives and careers, and many entries include bibliographies, auction sale records, exhibition histories, and museum collection holdings. This collection also includes over 200 images of artists' signatures. The Benezit Dictionary of British Graphic Artists and Illustrators serves as a compact, affordable alternative to the fourteen-volume Benezit for specialists and collectors in the fields of British art and/or printmaking.

Allan Sekula's works are among the most discussed in the field of contemporary art. In his combination of photography and text, he explores the issue of documentary forms, which particularly now is of great relevance. In addition, his works make controversial contributions to current debates on economic, social, and cultural globalization. Only when these two aspects are viewed together do the themes dealt with by Allan Sekula fully disclose themselves. This publication gives an overview ranging from early performances and actions carried out in the context of the anti-Vietnam War movement, to works focusing on working world, to his most recent works dealing with international shipping. Particular attention is paid to an aspect of Sekula's oeuvre that is often underestimated: his interest in the theatrical, which acts as a counterbalance to the documentary side of his work and brings in other elements of humor and subtle irony. Many of Sekula's texts are presented here for the first time in German translation.

Writing, for Michael Snow, is as much a form of “art-making” as the broad range of visual art activities for which he is renowned, including the “Walking Woman” series and the film Wavelength. Conversely, many of the texts included in this anthology are as significant visually as they are at the level of content — they are meant to be looked at as well as read. Situated somewhere between a repository of contemporary thought by one of our leading Canadian artists and a history book as it brings to light some important moments in the cultural life of Canada since the 1950s, these texts tell their own story, marking the passage of time, ideas and attitudes. The works included here, ranging from essays and interviews and record album cover notes to filmscripts and speeches (which, in Snow’s hands, often fall into the category of performance art), are not only “built for browsing,” they offer insights into both the professional and the private Snow. Together, they expand the context of Snow’s work and show the evolution of a great Canadian artist, beginning with his early attempts at defining art, to his emergence and recognition on the international art scene. This book is one of four books that are part of the Michael Snow Project. Initiated by the Art Gallery of Ontario and The Power Plant Gallery, the project also includes four exhibitions of his visual art and music.
