Tony Feher Catalogue

$60

Bottles aligned on shelves or suspended in the air, jars of marbles and dye-filled tubes: form, substance and structure emerge from deceptively humble means in the sculpture of Tony Feher. His work uses gravity, light and repetition to isolate and animate everyday objects, creating a sculptural territory that Feher can rightfully claim as entirely his own. This comprehensive book reproduces his many sculptures, site-specific installations and two-dimensional works and includes major new texts on Feher’s practice from Blaffer Art Museum Director Claudia Schmuckli, and Hammer Museum curator and writer Russell Ferguson.

O. Winston Link: Life Along The Line

$40

O. Winston Link photographed the Norfolk and Western, the last major steam railroad in the United States, when it was converting its operations from steam to diesel in the 1950s. Link’s N&W project captured the industry at a moment of transition, before the triumph of the automobile and the airplane that ended an era of passenger rail service. His work also revealed a small-town way of life that was about to experience seismic shifts and, in many cases, vanish completely.

Including a collection of more than 180 of Link’s most famous works and rare images that have never before been published, O. Winston Link: Life Along the Line by Tony Reevy offers a moving account of the people and communities surrounding the last steam railroad.

Just My Type: A Book About Fonts

$16

Just My Type: A Book About Fonts by Simon Garfield is a delightfully inquisitive tour that explores the rich history and the subtle powers of fonts. Typefaces are now 560 years old, but we barely knew their names until about twenty years ago, when the pull-down font menus on our first computers made us all the gods of type. Beginning in the early days of Gutenberg and ending with the most adventurous digital fonts, Garfield unravels our age old obsession with the way our words look. Just My Type investigates a range of modern mysteries, including how Helvetica took over the world, what inspires the seemingly ubiquitous use of Trajan on bad movie posters, and what makes a font look presidential, male or female, American, British, German, or Jewish. From the typeface of Beatlemania to the graphic vision of the Obama campaign, fonts can signal a musical revolution or the rise of an American president. This book is a must-read for the design conscious that will forever change the way you look at the printed word.

The Photographer, His Wife, Her Lover by Paul Yule

$29.95

The Photographer, His Wife, Her Lover reveals a bizarre tale of deceit, lies, lust and greed, one involving the adultery of Link's much younger wife and business manager, Conchita, and her imprisonment for embezzling his wealth and stealing more than a thousand of his original prints. In addition to many of Link's best-known photographic images, the film features interviews with O. Winston Link, his former wife, Conchita, her lover Edward Hayes, Link's younger brother, his son, photo dealers, the Link Museum director, and attorneys involved in the criminal prosecution. Ambiguities and uncertainties abound, however, as we hear the conflicting but seemingly credible accounts of the protagonists. Was this a case of a younger wife who cheated, sexually and financially, on her old, sick husband or that of a scorned wife who was disinherited by a vengeful and physically abusive husband?
