One of the most important institutions in the San Francisco art scene is in danger of closing! Adobe Books has been an important part of the lives of artists, writers, and book lovers -- not only for the books, but for the events, gatherings, the gallery, the discussions, and the welcoming spirit of the place. They have a wonderful plan to save and expand the store and gallery, and there is less than 3 days left to help fund it!

50 years after Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak's last work has been posthumously published. My Brother's Book is a magical story with smashing stars, riddles, polar bears and underworlds. The story is accompanied by beautiful watercolors perfectly complimenting the text.

Gerhard Richter's artistic career has traversed a whole range of impeccably technical and precise paintings to large laboriously squeegeed abstractions and many things inbetween, all of which have further enriched his fascinatingly labyrinthine oeuvre. His November series comprised of spilled ink images on paper executed with the incorporation of benzene, acetone and black tushe in order to create a variegated range of tones and colors is a wonderfully controlled experiment...

Of the many exhibitors at the LA Art Book Fair, a few managed to stand out in our memory despite the daunting high volume of amazing content. One of these exhibitors was Fulton Ryder, a New York-based bookshop, gallery, and publisher. Their space at the fair offered a wonderfully entertaining array of smutty novels, Raymond Pettibon zines (!!!), amazing records, and Richard Prince artworks.

We have been excited for this book since we got word that Taschen and author/comic authority Paul Levitz were working on it (and thank you to ItsNiceThat for the reminder). Soon in bookstores, Taschen will release The Golden Age of DC Comics, tracing the company's first decades, from its "pulp origins up to the comic book burnings of the McCarthy ’50s in more than 400 pages with comics, art, comics, photographs, and more comics."

Roberts & Tilton is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent photographs by Ed Templeton (featured in our February 2012 issue) in his fifth exhibition with the gallery. Templeton has long mined the middle ground between the public and the private, delving unreservedly into the human situation, creating photographs that are at once heartbreaking and outrageous, comical and sinister, his images, a visual litmus test of American youth culture in all its twisted luminescence.

And what a beautiful book this is. AMMO Books has just published perhaps one of the most stunning books we have seen all year, Eames: Beautiful Details, one that we are very happy ended up in our offices yesterday. Not only an in-depth, 400+ page look into their innovative and groundbreaking furniture design, Beautiful Details covers Charles and Ray Eames' extensive exploration in textiles, product, graphic design, toys, film, and photography.

Published in conjunction with Barry McGee's retrospective at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, on display through December 9, 2012, there is a fantastic catalog available now through D.A.P. Over 400 pages, hardcover, this to us feels like the most definitive McGee book to date, with essential photos of early streets works in San Francisco, and some of McGee's most important installation and sculptural works produced.
