Book of the Week: A Pick by Jonathan Blaustein
The Line by Palíndromo Mészáros


"I have a weekly book review column, so I can honestly say I look at more photobooks than most people. It's sometimes interesting to see what stays with me, when I think back among countless choices. The Line sticks in my mind because it marries the zany, conceptual art aesthetic of Christo and Jeanne-Claude with a heavy-hearted environmental realism. The combustible toxicity and beauty of the two traditions make a memorable mix." —Jonathan Blaustein

Featured Artist: Kerry Mansfield

"In elementary school I spent many lost afternoons hiding in the library nook reading while settled deeply into a green vinyl beanbag chair surrounded by the scent of musty paper. The first rite of passage upon learning how to write one's name was to inscribe it on a library check-out card promising the book's safe journey and return. I remember reading the list of names that had come before me and cradling the feeling that I was a part of this book's history and its shared, communal experience exposed by curly-Q handwritten names and room assignments revealing repeat customers devouring the book beyond its deadline. An act of declaration thats dissolving faster than we can see as cards are removed permanently and bar codes take their place." — Kerry Mansfield

Veramente By Guido Guidi

"Veramente by Guido Guidi is published in conjunction with his exhibition at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson. The exhibition and show bring together different series he has worked on over his 40-year career and highlights his overarching motivations. After looking at the work, I want to travel to see the exhibition, but the book serves as a suitable substitute. It is a very thorough book, offering a lot of insight and context about Guidi. We are able to see how Guidi's work has been refined over the years, but still driven by specific themes. Guido Guidi is a photographer who is willing to go against convention, and make work that goes beyond the expected." — from Tom Leininger's review of Veramente By Guido Guidi

Yoshino By Cuny Janssen

"Yoshino is immediately striking for its size. It's a thin book (about 1/4 inch) but it's a big book — measuring over 13 inches tall and about 3 ft wide when open... with beautifully layered partial pages of poetry, texts peaking out from behind each other, finally revealing large and sumptuous images... The project is a collaboration between Cuny Janssen and Jos Vos — Vos created a tight anthology of prose and poetry whose dates span centuries, all of which reference and are inspired by the Yoshino mountains." — from Sarah Bradley's review of Yoshino By Cuny Janssen

i By Eamonn Doyle

"i is a fascinating book of small stories told through a basic vocabulary of clothing, posture and the direction of the gaze. It's not that consistent in some ways. The light, the lenses, the angles all vary, but this does not really matter because the visual vocabulary gives the book a coherence it might otherwise lack." — from Colin Pantall's review of i By Eamonn Doyle

Please note that this title is now out-of-print.
