01. Bartworks, 2015.
02. Pep, 2015.

Words

Swiss art book publisher, and subject of a feature in Issue 10 of our magazine, Nieves, has released six new photocopied zines. The two that stand out to me are Bartworks, by frequent Yaeca illustrator Ken Kagami, and Pep, by Brooklyn-based artist James Ulmer. The other four offered are sure to have something appealing about them for those that love similar primitive, outsider illustration and at $8 are easily purchased from change found amongst your couch cushions.

The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson

Words

The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson has long been considered one of those rare, out-of-print photo books that carries a high price tag for original copies. That doesn’t have to be the case any longer. The German publisher, Steidl, has reissued a facsimile version of the 1952 book and hopefully its availability will help to continue eliciting Cartier-Bresson's hegemony and influence over photographers hoping to catch seemingly happenstance moments of beauty or quite possibly introduce his work to a whole new generation.

La Fine del Mondo

I wasn't supposed to be buying books. I wasn't even supposed to be shopping. But when something catches your eye, in a place that you love and trust, and that thing is only $10, there's really only ever going to be one outcome. Le Fine del Mondo – published by Rainoff books – has been produced by Marco Fusinato, Felicity D. Scott and Mark Wasiuta on the occasion of their contribution to the 14th International Architecture Exhibition at la Biennale di Venezia. The installation they put together, under the same name, includes not only this print document but also a series of "sensor-triggered audio-visual components depicting related records from Turin's Piper Club of 1966 and three Milanese centri sociali: Leoncavallo, Cox18, and Virus." Both book and installation aim to question the use of nightclubs and other social spaces as "sites of political meditation." Which sounds intense, and to be honest is not something I know a lot about. Which is as good a reason as any to purchase a book. They're supposed to be tools for learning and inspiration, after all.

01-02. The Veterans of West 4th Street by Samuel Bradley.

Words

There is not a lack of basketball coverage on the internet, but most of that coverage focuses on statistics, trade rumours, power rankings and gossip. A new London-based online biannual publication called Court sets out to focus on the rich culture that surrounds the sport. Collecting original stories and photography, it shines a light on the people and places that make basketball one of the most diverse and well-loved sports in the world. Founded by Callum Green and Louis Bennett the site’s design is smart, current and digestible. Issue 00 features Samuel Bradley’s photographs of NYC's legendary West 4th Street veterans as well as an interesting look at backboards from all over the world by Christopher Tubbs. Court is worth a read even if you aren’t the biggest basketball fan.
