We love public art in any form, especially when it completely changes the landscape (for the better). We love bookstores and libraries, too, and to see this fantastic project, an outdoor public library called The Bookyard, just combines all the things we like. Massimo Bartolini, we say wonderful work. The public installation, made for the Belgian Art Festival, sits next to rows of grapevines.

New York City's biggest bookstore, The Strand—featuring 18 miles of books on four floors—undertook a street art happening outside its walls a couple weeks ago. The store agreed to let Toofly, Fumaro and Army of One paint three large murals about Hank O'Neal's XCIA street photography book, and incorporate 15 life-size stickers of the figure that is on the book's cover.

Our good friend and killer artist, Sacramento-based Skinner, just released a new book through Gingko Press and Zerofriends, Every Man Is My Enemy. Besides the great collection of works in the book, there is an incredible quote from Skinner's high school art teacher, Larry Alberts: "Skinner is a psychopathic psycho, that's the worst kind you know...". That is a compliment.

There is a unifying conversation (especially amongst Americans) one can have with someone of their same group revolving around the topic of cereal and cereal box art. Think about it, kids remember what Mr T's cereal looked like, or the box of Cookie Crisp or even how incredible Smurf Berry Crunch tasted. Now there is a book that captures that spirit: The Great American Cereal Book. In a word, finally.

One of the best experiences this writer has ever had was spending time with George Lois at his Manhattan apartment in preparation for his December 2010 14-page feature in Juxtapoz. Not only was it an interview, history lesson, and New York Yankees debate, it was a personal discussion and advice session about capitalizing on potential. And hence Lois' new book, Damn Good Advice (For People With Talent!).

The good people of Juniper Books made this tree of entirely olive green law books. As more and more law schools digitize their content, Juniper notes, "cutting, chopping, carving or drilling through a few books that we know are plentiful and may face worse fates if we don’t do something creative with them makes perfect sense to us!"
