Brigitte, Kate and Martine are part of a series of 70s pin-ups from Lui magazine, as illustrated by Alain Aslan for Boom-Art, a gallery dedicated to board culture. Boom and Holenite Pool are reproducing 3 of these pin-ups as limited edition skate decks created by the famed french painter and sculptor, who has produced a huge body of extra- ordinary pinup art that is technically exquisite and playfully provocative.

Books are a good thing. When it comes to art, there is nothing better than a good art book. Banksy, who has had a few official, and unofficial successes in the book publishing world, is set to release a new collection, Banksy: You Are an Acceptable Level of Threat, this July 2012. The 240-page hardcover collection will be published under the Carpet Bombing Culture house. And at $23, it ain't going to bankrupt you.

We are huge fans of Philadelphia-based fine artist Alex Lukas, and his feature in the March 2011 issue was on of our favorites of that calendar year. Lukas, who has always had aa unique process with his work, just released an 8-color offset lithograph, made with Amanda D’Amico at The Borowsky Center for Publication Arts in Philadelphia. And, Lukas documented the making of the print, which illuminates some of Lukas' unique style and process.

It is President's Day here in the USA, and we want to honor those past Commander-in-Chiefs with the most appropriate thing we could find: Jason Heuser's New and Improved Presidents series. JFK as a riding a unicorn on the moom, Lincoln riding a bear with a machine gun and copy of the Gettysburg Address? Check and check.

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.

One of our very own in-house designers Brent Gentile just released a new two-color silk-screened edition. The print was inspired by a keepsake that has been handed down generationally from Gentile's grandfather. The lock that is depicted was once used to seal New York City Locomotives.

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.
