TODD HIDO: INTIMATE DISTANCE, TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHS, A CHRONOLOGICAL ALBUM - SIGNED!
Hido, Todd. Essay by David Campany, Texts by Katya Tylevich.. Aperture.
Intimate Distance is the first comprehensive monograph charting the career of acclaimed American photographer Todd Hido. Though he has published many smaller monographs of individual bodies of work, this gathers his most iconic images for the first time and brings a fresh perspective to his oeuvre with the inclusion of many unpublished photographs.
Well-known for his photographs of landscapes and suburban housing across the United States, and for his use of luminous color, Hido casts a distinctly cinematic eye across all that he photographs, digging deep into his memory and imagination for inspiration. David Campany introduces the work and looks specifically at Hido's cinematic influences and the kind of spectatorship the work demands. The book is organized chronologically, showing how his series overlap in exciting, new ways. Also featured are short interviews with Hido about the making of each of his monographs. From exterior to interior, surface observations to subconscious investigations, landscapes to nudes, this mid-career survey reveals insight into Hido's practice and illustrates how his unique focus has developed and shifted over time.
Books will be signed by Todd Hido at Arcana on 12/3 and shipped on 12/6. Event details forthcoming!

RANDI MALKIN STEINBERGER: NO CIRCUS - SIGNED!
Malkin Steinberger, Randi and D.J. Waldie. Damiani, 2016.
No Circus brings together photographs by Los Angeles–based Randi Malkin Steinberger of buildings tented for termite fumigation around Los Angeles. After moving to the city in the early ‘90s, she encountered these shrouded structures and began to stop and photograph them, knowing that the tent might be undraped at any given moment.
Steinberger was intrigued by the way the colors and shapes of the tents showed off the forms below and highlighted the beauty of the poor plants on the outside, still flourishing, unaware that they were slowly being poisoned. Beyond the intended purpose of fumigation, these tents unwittingly allow us to stop and contemplate not only architectural form and the meaning of home, but also the Southern California lifestyle more broadly.
Books will be signed by Ms. Steinberger and Mr. Waldie on 10/1/16. 9788862084802 Inventory Number: 000RMSNC
RANCHES: HOME ON THE RANGE IN CALIFORNIA - SIGNED!
Appleton, Marc. Photographs by Melba Levick. Rizzoli, 2016.
The romantic and intriguing homes set in the idyllic landscapes of the great California ranches. The lure of the West has been strong in American history, representing the promise of beautiful, wild landscapes, broad vistas, clean air, and bright skies. Set on this magnificent land are the homes and their interiors—from the 150-year-old Rancho Camulos of Ramona fame to Jack London’s Beauty Ranch on the slopes of Sonoma Mountain to the working ranches of today. Ranches: Home on the Range in California presents an expression of a lifestyle steeped in self-sufficiency, love of the land, and unpretentiousness. Arising from the tradition of the Mexican land-grant ranchos and the spread of Spanish Catholic missions, the ranches of California have a long and multifaceted history, which is examined by author Marc Appleton, who himself can attest to the challenges and charms of ranch life. Located in dramatic landscapes of rolling hills, upon the sides of mountains, or in vast plains bordered by snow-capped mountains, the featured homes demonstrate archetypal types—from the Spanish-style hacienda form of historic Rancho Camulos, with its open porch and broad eaves, to the New England clapboard traditional, as seen in Jack London’s Beauty Ranch. At once a tribute to a historic form and a fading way of life, as well as a celebration of renewal, architectural beauty, and the romance of the West, this book offers the reader an immersive experience of living on the land.

GAMECHANGERS: THE UNSUNG HEROINES OF SPORTS HISTORY - SIGNED BY MOLLY SCHIOT!
Schiot, Molly. Simon & Schuster, 2016.
Based on the Instagram account @TheUnsungHeroines, a celebration of the pioneering, forgotten female athletes of the twentieth century that features rarely seen photos and new interviews with past and present game changers including Abby Wambach and Cari Champion.
Two years ago, filmmaker Molly Schiot began the Instagram account @TheUnsungHeroines, posting a photo each day of a female athlete who had changed the face of sports around the globe in the pre-Title IX age. These women paved the way for Serena Williams, Carli Lloyd, and Lindsey Vonn, yet few today know who they are. Slowly but surely, the account gained a following, and the result is Game Changers, a beautifully illustrated collection of these trailblazers’ rarely-before-seen photos and stories.
Featuring icons Althea Gibson and Wyomia Tyus, complete unknowns Trudy Beck and Conchita Cintron, policymaker Margaret Dunkle, sportswriter Lisa Olson, and many more, Game Changers gives these “founding mothers” the attention and recognition they deserve, and features critical conversations between past and present gamechangers—including former US Women’s National Soccer Team captain Abby Wambach and SportsCenter anchor Cari Champion—about what it means to be a woman on and off the field. Inspiring, empowering, and unforgettable, Game Changers is the perfect gift for anyone who has a love of the game.

TOTAL CHAOS: THE STORY OF THE STOOGES BY JEFF GOLD - SIGNED BY JEFF GOLD!
Gold, Jeff. Jon Savage (Editor), with contributions by Johan Kugelburg, Ben Blackwell, Joan Jett, Johnny Marr. Third Man Books, 2016.
One of the most anticipated books of the year about one of the most influential bands of all time... The Stooges. TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of The Stooges / As Told by Iggy Pop is the first time the story of this seminal band has been told entirely in Pop's own words.
Author Jeff Gold and contributor Johan Kugelberg, noted music historians and collectors, spent two days with Pop at his Miami home, sharing with him their extensive Stooges collection and interviewing the legendary singer. Pop’s candid, bare-all responses left them with the almost unbelievable tale of the band he founded—the alternately tragic and triumphant story of a group who rose from youth, fell prey to drugs, alcohol, and music biz realities, collapsed and nearly 30 years later reformed, recording and touring to great acclaim. In 2010 The Stooges, credited with having invented punk rock, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their continuing influence can be felt today in the shape and sound of rock-n-roll music.
Jeff Gold, Johan Kugelberg and editor/contributor Jon Savage are among the most respected music authors and historians working today. Their efforts include numerous acclaimed and best-selling books and a Grammy Award. TOTAL CHAOS stands as a work for all fans of the band and rock music to draw inspiration. Including an absolute treasure-trove of rare and unseen photographs, TOTAL CHAOS is a book that shows AND tells the story of The Stooges. A metallic k.o. of only the best kind.
"It was a rare privilege to sit with Iggy as he downloaded the story of The Stooges. He’s an incredible storyteller with a fantastic memory and a great sense of humor, and he held nothing back. The Stooges were pioneers in sound, look, and live presentation, and along the way invented a genre—punk rock—and influenced countless others that followed. There was no precedent in rock music for what they did. They're definitely the only group in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame who started out playing an amplified Waring blender, a vacuum cleaner, spring water bottles and a 200 gallon oil drum." — Jeff Gold, Author of 101 Essential Rock Records
"Iggy and The Stooges have to be one of the greatest American rock bands that has ever been." — Joan Jett
"What does it mean to be Iggy Pop, five decades of being ‘the wildest man in rock’? Iggy Pop is many things. Rock Star. Singer, Rebel. Primitive. Stooge. The Jean Genie, Passenger. Legend." — Johnny Marr
"Iggy Pop has turned the interview into an art form. In this book he tells the history of The Stooges with a mixture of wit, candor and spontaneity: from their early beginnings to their full flaming flare over three groundbreaking albums before the crash and the triumphant return that no-one could have predicted. Profusely illustrated with dozens of unseen images, this is the story of The Stooges like you’ve never read it before." — Jon Savage, Author of England's Dreaming.

ANTHONY HERNANDEZ - SIGNED!
Hernandez, Anthony. Introduction by Robert Adams. Text by Erin O'Toole, Ralph Rugoff, Anthony Hernandez, Lewis Baltz.. D.A.P. / SF MOMA, 2016.
The comprehensive monograph on contemporary American photographer Anthony Hernandez co-published with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on the occasion of his major retrospective.
Since the early 1970s, when he began photographing on the streets of his native Los Angeles, Anthony Hernandez has consistently pushed his practice into uncharted territory, challenging himself by adopting new formats and subject matter. Moving from black and white to color, from 35mm to large-format cameras, and from the human figure to landscapes to abstracted detail, he has produced an unusually varied body of work united by its arresting beauty and subtle engagement with social issues. At first largely unaware of the formal traditions of the medium, Hernandez developed his own style of street photography, one uniquely attuned to the desolate allure and sprawling expanses of LA.
Published to accompany the photographer’s first retrospective, Anthony Hernandez offers a comprehensive introduction to his career of more than 40 years, tracing his evolution as well as highlighting continuities across his practice. The catalogue represents the full range and breadth of Hernandez’s work, with an extensive plate section that includes many photographs that have never before been exhibited or published.
Books will be signed by Mr. Hernandez on October 8th and shipped on October 11th.

CINEMA MAGAZINE: A SIGNIFICANT GROUP OF TWENTY-EIGHT ISSUES
(CINEMA). Silke, James R., Curtis Lee Hanson, Grace Nagata, Rod Dyer, Michael Lindsay, Paul Schrader, Jeannine Oppewall, Arlene Friedman & Sandy Brown Wyeth, Editors. Hollywood & Beverly Hills, CA. 1963-1976: Cinema Magazine & Spectator International, Inc.. First Editions. 4to. Stapled Pictorial Wrappers. Film Journal. Near Fine. or Better. circa 60pp each, profusely illustrated in b&w + color covers. This is a group of twenty-eight of the thirty-five issues published of the stylishly designed, copiously illustrated "Cinema" magazine. Published between 1963 and 1976, it was the slightly more glamorous Tinseltown cousin to Jonas Mekas' "Film Culture" that was likewise devoted to critical insight of contemporary world cinema as well as its historical precedents. During its decade and a half run, the "Cinema" editorial staff included noted art director, illustrator, and screenwriter Jim Silke, directors Curtis Lee Hanson and Paul Schrader, and a stellar roster of contributors coupled with a notable penchant for photographing the most alluring actresses of the day. The latter was likely due to the influence of longtime publisher Jack Martin Hanson, who along with his wife Sally owned JAX - Beverly Hills' hippest women's clothing boutique - and "The Daisy" - the members-only discotheque of choice for Hollywood's beautiful people and power brokers alike. Advertisements for both establishments are prominently placed in each issue. In addition to reviews of virtually all of the significant cinematic offerings of the time, the magazine features contributions by Silke, Hanson, Schrader, Curtis Harrington, Peter Bogdanovich, Guy Webster, William Claxton, Peggy Moffitt, Richard Brooks, Raymond Durgnat, Harlan Ellison, John Sladek, Robert Towne, John Milius, Axel Madsen, James Baldwin, Paul Schrader, Tom Baker, Carl Theodor Dreyer, Donald Richie, Peter Guber, Lindsay Anderson, Roberto Rossellini, Marc Wanamaker; interviews with Howard Hawks, Fred Zinneman, Norman Jewison, Vicente Minnelli, Martin Ransohoff, Rod Steiger and Claire Bloom, Richard Attenborough, William Wyler, Lawrence Turman, Don Siegel, John Cassavetes, Saul Bass, Eddie Constantine, Gordon Parks, Toshiro Mifune, Roman Polanski, Federico Fellini, Jeanne Moreau, Arthur Penn, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Jean Renoir, Frederick Weisman, Kon Ichikawa, Eric Rohmer, Joseph H.
