Book of the day > ZZYZX by Gregory Halpern. Published by MACK (@mack_books).” The early settlers dubbed California The Golden State, and The Land of Milk and Honey. Today there are the obvious ironies – sprawl, spaghetti junctions and skid row—but the place is not so easily distilled or visualized, either as a clichéd paradise or as its demise. There’s a strange kind of harmony when it’s all seen together—the sublime, the psychedelic, the self-destructive. Like all places, it’s unpredictable and contradictory, but to greater extremes. Cultures and histories coexist, the beautiful sits next to the ugly, the redemptive next to the despairing, and all under a strange and singular light, as transcendent as it is harsh.
The pictures in this book begin in the desert east of Los Angeles and move west through the city, ending at the Pacific. This general westward movement alludes to a thirst for water, as well as the original expansion of America, which was born in the East and which hungrily drove itself West until reaching the Pacific, thereby fulfilling its “manifest” destiny.
The people, places, and animals in the book did exist before Halpern’s camera, but he has sewn these photographs into a work of fiction or fantasy—a structure, sequence and edit which, like Los Angeles itself, teeters on the brink of collapsing under the weight of its own strangely-shaped mass.”

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his most iconic images for the first time and brings a fresh perspective to his oeuvre with the inclusion of many unpublished photographs.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.

MIKE SLACK: WALKING IN PLACE 1 - NEW ORLEANS
Slack, Mike. The Ice Plant + Perimeter Editions, 2016.
Walking in Place 1: New Orleans is the first in a series of standalone books by Los Angeles-based photographer Mike Slack, each taking in a different city, town or geographical locale. In this volume, Slack records various points of reference on a five day meander through The Big Easy, creating an inner travelogue both meditative and playful. Driven by an almost unconscious process of seeing, recording and cumulation, his gaze settles on architectural details, local flora, street ephemera, and the curious neighborhood cats that cross his path. Led by his keen eye for street-side formalism, and a canny sensitivity to the poetics of light and tonality — and their unlikely urban iterations and combinations — Slack has crafted another telling contribution to what has emerged as a genuinely unique photographic language. The book itself assumes the form of an elegant, pocket-sized paperback — a non-linear, non-verbal journal for the perpetual wanderer.
Books will be signed by Mr. Slack on November 12th and shipped on November 15th.

GAME CHANGERS: THE UNSUNG HEROINES OF SPORTS HISTORY - SIGNED BY MOLLY SCHIOT!
Schiot, Molly. Simon & Schuster, 2016.
Two years ago, filmmaker Molly Schiot began the Instagram account @TheUnsungHeroines - posting a photograph each day of a female athlete who had changed the face of sports around the globe in the pre-Title IX era. These women paved the way for the likes of Serena Williams, Carli Lloyd, and Lindsey Vonn, yet few today know who they are. The account gained a devoted following, and the result is Game Changers: The Unsung Heroines of Sports History, a beautifully illustrated collection of these trailblazers’ rarely-before-seen photos and stories.
Featuring icons Althea Gibson and Wyomia Tyus, unknowns Trudy Beck and Conchita Cintron, policymaker Margaret Dunkle, sportswriter Lisa Olson, and many more, Game Changers gives these “founding mothers” the overdue recognition they richly deserve. The book also features critical conversations between past and present game changers such as 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 perfect for anyone with a love of the game.
Books will be signed by Molly Schiot at Arcana on October 22nd, and shipped on October 25th.

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.

ED PANAR: ANIMALS THAT SAW ME, VOLUME 2 - SIGNED!
Panar, Ed. Essay by Timothy Morton. Los Angeles: The Ice Plant, 2016.
Can non-humans care? Of course they can. Can we?
— Timothy Morton
Animals That Saw Me: Volume Two pairs a new collection of photographs from the observational wanderings of Ed Panar with an original essay on “being seen” by speculative realist philosopher Timothy Morton. Extending the project Panar began in 2011 with Animals That Saw Me: Volume One, this 'sequel' draws from recent work and newly discovered gems from his vast back catalogue to depict a series of brief, shared encounters with various (non-human) species — mammal, reptile, bird, insect — as they seem to behold the (human) photographer. Edited for the viewer’s maximum delight, the pictures embody a whimsical concept with surprisingly complex ramifications under the surface. Why do we distinguish between “us” and “them,” and what exists in the space between these distinctions? What does it mean to make “eye contact” with another species? What does the presence of a camera add to this phenomenon? Channeling the thoughtful humor, wonder and peculiar engagement with the world that made Panar's first volume an instant hit, this volume revisits and digs deeper into the question: “Why do we assume that it’s only us who does the looking?”
Books will be signed by Mr. Panar on November 12th and shipped on November 15th.

ARI MARCOPOULOS: NOT YET - SIGNED!
Marcopoulos, Ari, Foreword by Robert Slifkin, Text by Catherine Taft and Neville Wakefield. Rizzoli.
The definitive monograph of Ari Marcopoulos, the renowned photographer whose explicit and startling visual intimacy bridges art and street photography. For nearly four decades, Ari Marcopoulos has broken conventions with his candid and raw style. His photographs documenting subcultures such as skateboarding, snowboarding, and hip-hop; his tendencies to photograph stark landscapes, portraits of artists, and celebrities; and his extremely quiet and intimate photos of his family and friends have all been hugely influential in helping to establish the visual rawness of youth culture, as well as the ephemeral aesthetic of contemporary photography. Ari Marcopoulos: Not Yet is an unprecedented journey through the artist’s celebrated career, from skateboarding and snowboarding to rural landscapes and cityscapes. This volume includes both iconic and never-before-published photographs from the 1980s to now. Each chapter is edited by a different celebrated artist or family member—all close to Marcopoulos—and it is through these personal reflections on the artist’s work that this monograph takes on a deeper level of intimacy, drawing a more complete portrait of his oeuvre.
Books will be signed by Mr. Marcopoulos on November 18th and shipped on November 22nd.

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.
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 in conjunction with the photographer’s major career-spanning retrospective at SFMoMA, Anthony Hernandez is a beautifully designed and printed hardbound catalogue featuring an introduction by Robert Adams, texts by Erin O'Toole, Ralph Rugoff, Lewis Baltz, and Anthony Hernandez, and an extensive selection of images - including many that have until now never been exhibited or published. It represents the full range and breadth of Hernandez’ work tracing his evolution as well as highlighting continuities across his practice.
Books will be signed by Mr. Hernandez on October 8th and shipped on October 11th.
