The city as canvas: How self-expression, politics, and protest reclaim the streets Made in collaboration with its featured artists, Trespass traces the rise and global reach of graffiti and urban art, not just as a fringe visual movement but as a social phenomenon and central expression of youth. With an exclusive preface from Banksy, Trespass, now available as a popular Reader's Edition, presents the full historical sweep, international spread, and technical developments of the street art movement. Featuring key works by 150 artists, it connects four generations of street practitioners, incoporating both niche artists such as Miss Van and noteworthy names as Jean Tinguely, Keith Haring, Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer, Gordon Matta-Clark, Billboard Liberation Front, Guerrilla Girls, and Banksy. The book is set out in thematic chapters that engage with the central theme of 'trespassing'. While images of the works are allowed to speak for themselves, each theme is prefaced by a brief essay to provide thought-provoking context to the history, politics, protest, and illicit performance of self-expression in the social space. Writers include Anne Pasternak (director of public arts fund Creative Time) and civil rights lawyer Tony Serra.

"Jazz" was originally published in 1959, and since then it has become one of the most collectible photography books of the mid-twentieth century, ranking alongside the more widely known work of Christer Stromholm and Robert Frank. Like William Claxton's "Jazzlife" and Dennis Stock's "Jazz Street, " van der Elsken's entry into the niche of music photography appeared just before the decisive moment when rock cemented its place as the popular music of choice for young people. It is perhaps the most successful of the era's many photographic attempts to capture the essence of jazz, because it is more than just a succession of musicians' portraits or even a documentary record of performance, but a book that visually echoes the music itself. Van Der Elsken's work is that of both an authentic jazz fan and an experienced creator of photography books, who improvises in ways perfectly hooked in to both fields. Vince Aletti, writing in "Artforum" in 2000, said, "His jazz photos, made without flash in Amsterdam nightclubs, are gorgeous fields of grain, as moody and soulful as a sax riff," and called "Jazz" "utterly original." This special limited edition is made from a copy of the first edition found in van der Elsken's library, in which the name of each performing artist--Ella, Louis, Chet--was written on every page in the artist's hand in silver ink.

'Claxton is arguably the best jazz photographer in the world. But his work goes beyond the subject of jazz music. It encompasses the human condition and spirit' - Vanity Fair Responsible for most of the iconic images by which we remember the great American jazz musicians, here is Claxton's first-ever monograph of his lesser-known but equally remarkable portraits outside the world of jazz, featuring actors, writers, singers, artists and more. Alongside the photos are Claxton's own touching memories of personal experiences with the stars.
