In the style of Wolfgang Tillmans and Roe Ethridge, New York-based Asher Penn, born in Vancouver in 1982, captures the quotidian. As an anthology of artist books self-published by Asher Penn between 2004 and 2007 — an anthology that is effectively an artist book itself. Made between Providence, New York, Philadelphia and Vancouver, these ‘zine-like publications are rephotographed page by page on top of painted works that Penn was producing at the time of their re-publication. In rephotographing these original editions on the surface of recent work, Penn cleverly illustrates the creative vertigo capable of creeping up on artists while they look back at the artist that they have become. The artist books collected in this anthology include the following: 1. Just Say Maybe; 2. Go Fuck Yourself With Your Atomic Bomb; 3. Bad Hound, Buddha; 4. School; 5. Asher Mixtape Hell; 6. Elisa Penn Hero One; 7. Institutional Critique; 8. The Heart Wants What The Heart Wants; 9. Before And After; and 10. (Untitled).

This publication is a reprint of the first book realized by Wolfgang Tillmans in 1995. A very atmospheric, if measured, compilation of black and white images, it combines portraits of youth culture with landscape, city scenes with slogans, clippings from newspapers, and book illustrations. Released now into a different context from its first appearance, the book is emblematic of the new approach and the energy Tillmans has developed since the end of the 1980s to the present in terms of genres, quality, and the status of photography as a medium.

For artist Wolfgang Tillmans, portraiture is a collaborative process between photographer and accomplice. While Tillmans’ photographs are often referred to as casual, they are actually the result of a carefully constructed process of engagement with his models. Each sitter, be they a world-famous rock star or a family member, projects both vulnerability and dignity. Presented here are a selection of some of the best of these portraits, taken between 1988 to 2001, and chosen by Tillmans himself. Subjects include filmmaker John Waters, architect Rem Koolhaas, musicians Moby and Michael Stipe, actresses Irm Hermann and Chloë Sevigny, as well as the artist’s family and friends.

Peter Saville Estate traces the development of designer, artist and cultural observer Peter Saville, from his groundbreaking work for Factory Records in the late 1970s, though to his most recent explorations of art and design’s role in the highly commodified, visually hyper-literate early 21st century. Taking Saville’s 2005 exhibition at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst Zürich as its starting point, the book features essays by Michael Bracewell and Heike Munder, alongside personal responses to Saville’s work from artists Slater Bradley, Liam Gillick, Steven Gontarski, Thomas Grünfeld, Robert Longo, Sarah Morris, Oliver Payne and Nick Relph, Sean Snyder, Wolfgang Tillmans, Kelley Walker and T.J. Wilcox.

Peter Saville Estate is not a conventional account of Saville’s professional practice, but collects together work, reference material and ephemera from his archive to form an illuminating and highly personal topography of the life and working methods of one of the most influential designers of the last 30 years.

Born in Manchester (U.K.) in 1955, Peter Saville studied graphic design at Manchester Polytechnic. He found early inspiration in the elegantly ordered aesthetic of Jan Tschichold, the German-born book and type designer who was to become the chief propagandist for the New Typography. In 1979 he co-founded Factory Records (with Tony Wilson), and in the following year he co-designed the famous Haçienda nightclub.

Cecil Balmond is a structural engineer, author, and man of ideas; he is deputy chairman at the global design and engineering firm ARUP, and director of its think-tank, the Advanced Geometry unit. Architects Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, and Toyo Ito, among others, are indebted to his groundbreaking structural work. Both Cecil Balmond and artist Wolfgang Tillmans have dismantled the very architecture of their genres – Balmond’s genre being architecture itself, and Tillmans’ being the representational genres of portraiture and still life. A dismantling pictured and reformulated in an image essay, in which Tillmans distills an early 21st century office life so liberated by innovation that it is uninhibited by its cubicles.
