Oh Dear: A Typology of Drainpipes - Dante Fewster Holdsworth

Oh Dear: A Typology of Drainpipes

Dante Fewster Holdsworth
Drain pipes seem to be pretty straight forward. They catch the rain and purge it away from the house into the garden or onto the street. But as closer they get to the ground as more random their form becomes - going around corners, following stairs, twisting, circling, breaking off... Oh Dear - A Typology of Drainpipes collects the language of form of the piping systems that adorn our houses.⁠ If you have never thought about drain pipes, you are not alone. But don't worry, we are here for you to uncover all the overlooked or weird or not talked about subjects. Buy
Josef Albers in Mexico

Josef Albers in Mexico

Lauren Hinkson
When Josef and Anni Albers traveled to Mexico they realised that they were in "a country for art like no other". They would make several trips to Mexico throughout the years exploring sites in Oaxaca and Yucatan. Fascinated by the geometrical shapes, they translated and interwove their found inspiration into their own works of abstract modernism. The book shows photographs made by the Albers of archaeological sites next to their painting, drawings and weaving and the correlations are staggering. Who would have thought that the basis for modernism was built on Mexican ruins.⁠ Buy
Life Doesn't Frighten Me - 25th Anniversary Edition

Life Doesn’t Frighten Me

Maya Angelou, Jean-Michel Basquiat
Maya Angelou and Jean-Michel Basquiat published a children's book to overcome fear and make life seem less frightening. The powerful collaboration of a poem by Dr. Maya Angelou and the accompanying art by Basquiat screams fearlessly "Life doesn't frighten me at all" in the face of conjured demons and intimidating everyday situations. This book celebrates the courage within each of us and empowers our inner child to not be intimidated by the world and its workings, whatever age we have. And although it was originally published in 1993, it couldn't be more necessary than it is now: a book - by a black American poet and civil rights activist and a black American artist who uses his paintings as a social commentary to make visible the experiences of the black community - that tells us to stand brave and fierce.⁠ Buy

Creatures - Sam Chermayeff (et al.)

Creatures

Sam Chermayeff (et al.)
Look what just arrived! We are super excited to have the new book from Sam Chermayeff and Apartamento in the shop. ⁠'Creatures', edited by Moritz Küng, is a look back through nearly two decades of experimental projects undertaken by the Berlin-based architect Sam Chermayeff and his collaborators—for the most part pieces of furniture whose use, appearance, or application has been reimagined and readapted. But these ‘creatures’ are not just conceptual; they’re made to be lived with daily and all start with the idea that personal whim is probably the best guide for producing any design that’s to be lived with day in, day out.⁠ Buy
Street Couture - Willi Smith

Street Couture

Willi Smith
African-American fashion designer Willi Smith, pioneer of streetwear and visionary collaborator, finally gets his due in an exuberant celebration of his life and work.⁠ Before Off-White, before Hood By Air, before Supreme, there was WilliWear. Willi Smith created inclusive and liberating fashion: “I don’t design clothes for the queen, but the people who wave at her as she goes by." ⁠This beautifully-made book, published in conjunction with the first ever exhibition of Willi Smith's work, is definitely one of our favourite new fashion titles from the past weeks and months!⁠ Buy

Spiralled - Seana Gavin

Spiralled

Seana Gavin
"...there were moments during the weekend that felt magical, full of natural euphoria. Wanted to feel like that forever. Now we're outside Prague trying to find a camp site."⁠ Seana Gavin's SPIRALLED - a strong contender for coolest book of the summer - is full of moments like this, where the surreal and sublime sits side-by-side with the earthy and ordinary. A dreamy double-exposure of sunbathers on a golden beach sits opposite a shot of a concrete underpass littered with trash. Such is life. ⁠At the tail end of the 90s into the early 2000s, Seana Gavin was part of the rave scene, travelling around in a giant truck accompanied by a sound system and a vast, ever-changing community of like-minded nomadic party animals, defying the commercialisation of club culture in the UK by holding free and illegal parties across Europe. ⁠Using cheap disposable cameras at first, and later a real 35mm, Gavin documented the everyday reality of the rave scene. What emerges is a chronicle of a life made up entirely of endings and beginnings, or so it seems, as the convoy moves from place to place, from party to party. People appear and disappear. What is depicted is both beautiful and transient. ⁠As Seana says, "It was a product of its time, and something that will never be repeated in quite the same way again. And that's what makes it precious."⁠ Buy
Cabana #13 S/S 2020

Cabana #13 S/S 2020

We love minimalism, really we do - but sometimes, just sometimes, we find ourselves wanting a little bit more. ⁠Enter Cabana - the interiors magazine for the maximalist in all of us! Every page is a feast of colour, texture, pattern and shape. In the newest issue, Cabana invites us into some of the most original and beautiful interiors in the world, from Paris to London to Beirut to LA, Miguel Flores-Vianna takes us on a photographic tour of the Denizli mosques in all their lovely imperfection, and Guido Taroni profiles the baroque visions of architect-designer Piero Portaluppi.⁠ Buy
Jezga #3

Jezga #3

Latvia's fashion and art magazine Jezga dedicates its current issue to our closest companion throughout life: our body. Undergoing permanent changes and transformations it can function as a powerful tool or as canvas oscillating between our inner self and the outer world...Or, as Jezga's two-sided cover twisting between both. This East-European treasure dives into topics such as what it means to become a mother besides the obvious things everyone tells you, how artist Mētra Saberova converts her own body into a platform to push societal norms to their limits and how Latvia's make-up artist Lynski experiments with the power of make-up as cultural, racial, age and gender signifier.⁠ Buy
