Hart+Lëshkina - Beyond the Clouds

Beyond the Clouds
By Hart+Lëshkina
Designed by Hideki Nakajima
Published by Total Visual Shop
Hardcover, Smyth sewn binding
96 pages, 72 color plates
19 x 26cm
Printed in USA. Full color offset
Edition of 500

"In their new book Beyond the Clouds, the photographic duo Hart+Lëshkina explore the many layers that comprise desire, longing, fragility and hope. With a book design by the acclaimed Japanese art director and graphic designer Hideki Nakajima, Hart+Lëshkina use such ephemeral materials as ice, snow, flowers and human detritus (nails, hair, teeth, bodily fluids) to allude to the transience of life. The pictures examine the human body burdened by its own impermanence, speaking to the most primal of human experiences: mortality, pain, elation and the desire for intimacy."

24 pages, 14,8 x 20 cm
Booklet, saddle stitched

Published by Multipress
Edition of 360

"Gledtisch's photo series takes its origin in the residential exhibition Weissenhofziedlung, opening in 1927 with Mies van der Rohe as artistic director. When the exhibition was to open several buildings were painted in bright and strong colors, but in the catalog the buildings were photographed in black-and-white, making the houses appear white. The press circulated the pictures, and the white facades became inextricably connected with modern architecture."

Mikiko Hara - Change

by Mikiko Hara
with a short story by Stephen Dixon
64 pages, 24.8 cm high x 18 cm wide (9.75 x 7 inches)
Offset printing
Edition: 500 copies + 26 copies w/ a limited edition prints
45 euros + shipping

Change, the first volume of The Gould Collection, interweaves Stephen Dixon’s short story Change with Mikiko Hara’s untitled photographs from 1996 to 2009.

"Isolation and social disconnect define both Dixon’s story and Hara’s photographs. Whether images of a bored mother and child on a Tokyo subway or dialogue that reveals missed social cues between neighbors, the people who inhabit the pages of Change try and often fail to genuinely interact with one another. Visually united through an inventive design that presents Dixon’s story on iridescent sheets interspersed between Hara’s color images, Change probes alienation and its role in contemporary life."

Scott Grover and Justin Hunt - Essence In Balance

Essence In Balance
by Scott Grover and Justin Hunt
Self published
48 pages
Digital offset, hand bound (stab binding)
9” x 7”
Edition of 50

"As you look through this book, it is possible to believe you are gazing into eternity— you see the things that are inside you; the images captivate you, but still you drift off. Whenever a spiritual shift occurs, fragments like this resurface, and for a moment it all interlocks, but then a new pattern emerges in front of you, new always following the last. You are again in a dream, looking for a way out of the maze you’ve been convinced was created solely for you."
