Evoking an era when elegance, romance, and outright performance defined the automobile—and the fascinating stories that made them icons of the road. From the shark-inspired Maserati Ghibli to the fiery Lamborghini Miura, from European elegance with American firepower such as the Iso Grifo and Facel Vega to the groundbreaking designs of the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale and Renault Alpine and the advanced technology behind the Jensen FF or Porsche 918 Spyder—these cars are less transportation and more testaments to beauty, freedom, ambition, innovation, and speed.

Offering a rare glimpse inside the Hermit Kingdom, Guardian journalist and photographer Oliver Wainwright takes us on an architectural journey behind closed doors in the world’s most secretive country. From the mosaic-lined lobbies of Soviet-era health centers to the candy-colored interiors of brand new theaters, his photographs shine a spotlight on the reclusive regime’s ambition to “turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland.”

Modernist aesthetics in architecture, art, and product design are familiar to many. In soaring glass structures or minimalist canvases, we recognize a time of vast technological advance which affirmed the power of human beings to reshape their environment and to break, radically, from the conventions or constraints of the past. Less well-known, but no less fascinating, is the distillation of modernism in graphic design.
This unprecedented TASCHEN publication, authored by Jens Müller, brings together approximately 6,000 trademarks, focused on the period 1940–1980, to examine how modernist attitudes and imperatives gave birth to corporate identity. Ranging from media outfits to retail giants, airlines to art galleries, the sweeping survey is organized into three design-orientated chapters: Geometric, Effect, and Typographic. Each chapter is then sub-divided into form and style led sections such as alphabet, overlay, dots and squares.
Alongside the comprehensive catalog, the book features an introduction from Jens Müller on the history of logos, and an essay by R. Roger Remington on modernism and graphic design. Eight designer profiles and eight instructive case studies are also included, with a detailed look at the life and work of such luminaries as Paul Rand, Yusaku Kamekura, and Anton Stankowski, and at such significant projects as Fiat, The Daiei Inc., and the Mexico Olympic Games of 1968. An unrivaled resource for graphic designers, advertisers, and branding specialists, Logo Modernism is equally fascinating to anyone interested in social, cultural, and corporate history, and in the sheer persuasive power of image and form.
Jens Müller was born in Koblenz, Germany, in 1982 and studied graphic design. Recipient of numerous national and international design awards, Müller is Creative Director of vista design studio in Düsseldorf, editor of the A5 book series on graphic design history, and author of Logo Modernism. He is a visiting lecturer at the Peter Behrens School of Arts in Düsseldorf and at the design department of the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

Jeremy Kost is a photographer celebrated for his tireless chronicling of gender and sexuality. Isolated But Not Alone is his first monograph dedicated to images of men since 2014. While Jeremy has attracted an audience of close to half a million followers to his Instagram account in that time, exhibitions and books are the only way to view his uncensored art work in it’s full glory.
Jeremy Kost is a photographer celebrated for his tireless chronicling of gender and sexuality. Isolated But Not Alone is his first monograph dedicated to images of men since 2014. While Jeremy has attracted an audience of close to half a million followers to his Instagram account in that time, exhibitions and books are the only way to view his uncensored art work in it’s full glory.Contrast is distilled. The paint acts as a high-contrast punch against the muted and dreamlike tone of the original Polaroid.
The work is in part a result of a fascination and experiment with color theory, reflected in the tone, light, and contrast of the paint in relation to the images. It also calls to mind the artistic debate of figure and ground—the landscape is almost an equal partner in Kost’s work. Rather than disguise or obscure, paint brings both the figure and landscape of the original image into sharper relief, while repeating the conversation of figure/ground again with paint to Polaroid.
Whether staring back at the camera or captured at a distance, the men in Kost’s work exude a true sense of intimacy. They offer a canvas for our own projections and fantasies. The paint fractures the image, almost puncturing a reverie, reminding us of the vulnerability of that moment and inviting us in while also keeping us at a distance.
In addition, the book contains a new poem by actor/poet Nico Tortorella and a conversation with Drew Sawyer, photo curator at the Brooklyn Museum. Isolated But Not Alone is an essential collectible for fans of Kost’s work and an illuminating introduction to his work for new audiences.

The work of Miranda July—the most impressively cross-disciplinary artist of her generation—is brought into focus in this mid-career retrospective.
From her early rarely seen Riot Grrrl-influenced fanzines and performances to a career that has produced seminal films, fiction, sculptures, public art, and even a smartphone app, Miranda July has proven adept at articulating the poignancy and humor of the human plight while also achieving enormous acclaim along the way. This chronological retrospective includes July’s performance and video projects, awardwinning films, digital multimedia, and written pieces which make clear the multidimensionality of her work. The book includes photography, stills, and archival ephemera and is narrated by friends, collaborators, curators, assistants, and audience members including David Byrne, Spike Jonze, Lena Dunham, Carrie Brownstein, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, as well as July herself. This behind-the-scenes commentary reveals an intimate perspective on the process, struggles, and grit involved in forging one’s own path. What emerges is just how singular her voice is—from a movie narrated by an injured cat to a performance that builds an intentional community; from sculpture that engages the public to an interfaith charity shop in a London department store. July may be impossible to categorize, but the importance of her work and her status as an essential cultural icon with wide-ranging appeal is irrefutable.

She Surf celebrates the diverse, vibrant, and engaged community of female riders making waves around the globe.
From its Polynesian origins to the beaches of California, the art of surfing has become a truly global phenomenon with millions of wave riders living to the rhythm of the tides. While surfing is usually told through a male perspective, women have long been nurturing their own water stories and claiming their rightful place in the world of this sport. She Surf hails the women, past and present, who define the art of surfing.
Travel with Stephanie Gilmore, one of the greatest surfers in the world set to represent Australia at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games; meet Chloe Calmon, a Brazilian expert in longboarding or discover Ishita Malaviya, India's first professional female surfer and her impact on her local community. Thanks to evocative imagery and insightful text written by professional surfer Lauren L. Hill, this book travels from the iconic waves of Hawai'i to lesser-known surf destinations such as Taghazout and Tofino. She Surf also explores many other incredible surf spots in the Seychelles, along the Tuscan coastline in Italy, and in the French Basque Country.
Learn about the forgotten stories of Polynesian surfing princess, pioneering female wave riders from the 1960s, and the contemporary movers and shakers shaping the scene. She Surf is an exciting reflection on what it means to be a female surfer and how it feels to be moved to action by the beauty of the ocean.
From animals to robotization, climate change to migration, Rem Koolhaas presents a new collaborative project exploring how countryside everywhere is transforming beyond recognition. The official companion to the highly anticipated exhibition at New York’s Guggenheim Museum, this pocketbook gathers in-depth essays spanning from Fukushima to the Netherlands, Siberia to Uganda—an urgent dispatch from this long-neglected realm, revealing its radical potential for changing everything about how we live.
The rural, remote, and wild territories we call “countryside”, or the 98% of the earth’s surface not occupied by cities, make up the front line where today’s most powerful forces—climate and ecological devastation, migration, tech, demographic lurches—are playing out. Increasingly under a ‘Cartesian’ regime—gridded, mechanized, and optimized for maximal production—these sites are changing beyond recognition. In his latest publication, Rem Koolhaas explores the rapid and often hidden transformations underway across the Earth’s vast non-urban areas.
Countryside, A Report gathers travelogue essays exploring territories marked by global forces and experimentation at the edge of our consciousness: a test site near Fukushima, where the robots that will maintain Japan’s infrastructure and agriculture are tested; a greenhouse city in the Netherlandsthat may be the origin for the cosmology of today’s countryside; the rapidly thawing permafrost of Central Siberia, a region wrestling with the possibility of relocation; refugees populating dying villages in the German countryside and intersecting with climate change activists; habituated mountain gorillas confronting humans on ‘their’ territory in Uganda; the American Midwest, where industrial-scale farming operations are coming to grips with regenerative agriculture; and Chinese villages transformed into all-in-one factory, e-commerce stores, and fulfillment centers.
This book is the official companion to the Guggenheim Museum exhibitionCountryside, The Future. The exhibition and book mark a new area of investigationfor architect and urbanist Rem Koolhaas, who launched his career with two city-centric entities: The Office for Metropolitan Architecture(1975) and Delirious New York (1978). It’s designed by Irma Boom, who drew inspiration for the book’s pocket-sized concept, as well as its innovative typography and layout, from her research in the Vatican library.
The book brings together collaborative research by AMO, Koolhaas, and students at the Harvard Graduate School of Design; the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing; Wageningen University in the Netherlands; and the University of Nairobi. Contributors also include Samir Bantal, Janna Bystrykh, Troy Conrad Therrien, Lenora Ditzler, Clemens Driessen, Alexandra Kharitonova, Keigo Kobayashi, Niklas Maak, Etta Madete, Federico Martelli, Ingo Niermann, Dr. Linda Nkatha Gichuyia, Kayoko Ota, Stephan Petermann, and Anne M. Schneider.
AMOis the think tank of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), co-founded by Rem Koolhaas in 1999. Applying architectural thinking to domains beyond building, AMO has worked with Prada, the European Union, Universal Studios, Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, Condé Nast, Harvard University, and the Hermitage. It has produced exhibitions, including Expansion and Neglect (2005) and When Attitudes Become Form: Bern 1969/Venice 2013 (2013) at the Venice Biennale; The Gulf (2006), Cronocaos (2010), Public Works (2012), and Elements of Architecture (2014) at the Venice Architecture Biennale; and Serial Classics and Portable Classics (both 2015) at Fondazione Prada, Milan and Venice, respectively.
Rem Koolhaas is a co-founder of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. Having worked as a journalist and scriptwriter before becoming an architect, in 1978 he published Delirious New York. His 1996 book S,M,L,XL summarized the work of OMA and established connections between contemporary society and architecture. Among many international awards, he has received the Pritzker Prize (2000) and the Praemium Imperiale (2003). He directed the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale, coinciding with the first publication of Elements of Architecture.
Irma Boom is a graphic designer specialized in making books. Since founding Irma Boom Office in 1990, she has worked with the likes of Chanel, the United Nations, OMA/Rem Koolhaas, Fondazione Prada, Pirelli, and Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. She received the Gutenberg Prize and the Johannes Vermeer Prize, the Dutch state prize for the arts, among others. Her work is in a permanent collection of the Design and Architecture Department of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Since 1992, Boom is a Senior Critic at Yale University in the USA.

Designing Graphic Props for Filmmaking
A behind-the-scenes look at the extraordinary and meticulous design of graphic objects for film sets
Although graphic props such as invitations, letters, tickets, and packaging are rarely seen close-up by a cinema audience, they are designed in painstaking detail. Dublin-based designer Annie Atkins invites readers into the creative process behind her intricately designed, rigorously researched, and visually stunning graphic props. These objects may be given just a fleeting moment of screen time, but their authenticity is vital and their role is crucial: to nudge both the actors on set and the audience just that much further into the fictional world of the film.
