Gift Recommendations (Part One)

Michael Kenna remains as popular as ever with our customers so we're happy to report that the delayed Holga will be in stock this week. Abruzzo, published earlier this year and produced as beautifully as ever by Nazraeli, would make a great gift for any Italophile. His poster-size Calendar includes new images from Laos, Spain and Italy.
if you need a gift for a dog-lover, this is your year. Hoxton Mini Press teamed up with Penguin to produce Really Good Dog Photography, the best collection I can remember, with contributions from William Wegman, Alec Soth, Elliott Erwitt, Dougie Wallace and many more. Both Wegman and Wallace also have their own dog books out.

Being Human is the most extensive collection of Wegman’s photographic work yet to be published with over 300 images of his beloved Weimaraners made over the last four decades.

Dougie Wallace's Well Heeled focuses on the pampered dogs of the rich. “Behind the coiffured and pampered ‘children in fur coats’ the focus is on their claws, paw pads, incisors, drool-drenched beards and wet noses.” At the time of writing, we have a few signed copies left.
Martin Parr's two new books on Scotland are both selling well. Think of Scotland is more of an overview of his photographs taken over many years. Remote Scottish Postboxes is as quirkly and delightful as it sounds. We have signed copies of both these titles; also unsigned copies of the Remote Scottish Postboxes Postcard Box.
Triplekite's huge William Neill Retrospective has arrived at last and we'll be despatching lots of copies over the next few days. Neill is one of the greatest living colour landscape photographers.

Triplekite have also published two smaller volumes this autumn. Mel Collie's Elemental traces the weathering of rocks and boats by the sea in Cornwall.

Fleeting Reflections shows the results of Mike Curry's endless hours in and around Canary Wharf quietly observing and photographing the delicate and abstract patterns of corporate architecture reflected in the water.
Two new titles would serve as useful introductions to the work of the Magnum agency. With 365 photos and 720 pages, Magnum Atlas: Around the World in 365 Photos from the Magnum Archive represents astonishing value for money at just over £20.

In line with the humanitarian values of its founders, Framing Community: Magnum Photos 1947 to the Present is a careful selection of images that sheds new light on Magnum according to one important theme: community.
 
In Feast for the Eyes, Susan Bright presents the first comprehensive history of food photography, featuring photographers as diverse as Edward Weston, Irving Penn, Stephen Shore, Laura Letinsky, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Martin Parr.

Jim Shaughnessy is one of the greatest of America railroad photographers. The images in his latest collection, Essential Witness, stretch back over sixty years with a particular focus on the 1950s and 1960s. They record the trains and the landscapes they pass through, night and day, and capture the lives of those who worked to keep the railroad going.

We will have one more newsletter this year on 11 December. This will feature our Gift Recommendations (Part Two) plus any late-arriving new titles.

Endnotes

Roddy Simpson is a well-known historian of Scottish photography who has also exhibited and published his own work. The first book of his photographs, Thresholds, he describes as “a series of lyrical, black and white photographs of my personal and emotional engagement with and exploration of place; from my home area of Linlithgow to other parts of Scotland from Kirkcudbright to Orkney.” We will have signed copies.

We now have signed copies of Peter Bialobrzeski’s Die Zweite Heimat in stock and it is among his best work. Signed copies of Todd Hido’s Homing In B-Sides Box Set are also now in stock.

The 2017 edition of Larry Sultan’s Evidence has been reprinted.

If you are ordering from overseas, we are nearing the deadline for pre-Christmas posting. For overseas customers, the last dates for air mail despatch would be 13 December for Europe and North America, 6 December for the rest of the world.

UK customers should try to get orders to us by 19 December. As stock levels change rapidly in December, you should contact us as soon as possible if you wish to ensure you get a copy of a particular item.
