The Summer Sale is in full swing and we have seen several gems getting scooped up by people in the know about art books and exhibition catalogues. However, there is still plenty of treasure to be found in our warehouse: art-, design-, architecture- and photography-related trade books published before 2017 that have been declared out of print elsewhere; hard-to-find exhibition catalogues and museum publications that were never commercially distributed; and foreign publications that may not/no longer be readily available in North America.

This is the perfect opportunity to fill gaps in your library collection, or to find books on your favorite artists or subjects!



Would you like to receive occasional email alerts about new and noteworthy publications that may not be suitable for automatic inclusion in our approval plan program due to subject matter, special format, limited availability or price, but that may still be of interest to many art libraries with specialized collection-development interests? If so, please be sure to join our Desiderata mailing list here.

Publisher's description:
"Factory conditions, country life and the glamour of high society were among the key themes of German photographer Jakob Tuggener (1904-88); he was also fascinated by railroads, ports, ships, car races and airshows. From the mid-1930s Tuggener made book maquettes of all these subjects, each crafted meticulously by hand and featuring up to 150 original photos. None of these was published in his lifetime except  Fabrik (1943), which has formed the basis of his international reputation and was reprinted by Steidl in 2011. Many of Tuggener's subjects are also the focus of his short films, whose style oscillates between the documentary and fantasy.  Books and Films comprises facsimiles of 12 of Tuggener's maquettes, dating from 1936 to 1982, as well as a selection of his 16mm films on DVD. Both these silent black-and-white films and his photobooks contain no text, as he intended. This comprehensive publication is the first opportunity to grasp the immense scope of Tuggener's work."
