On Loving Women

On Loving Women
by Diane Obomsawin

D+Q is delighted to release Diane Obomsawin's On Loving Women (translated by Helge Dascher) this week! In fact, it's her second D+Q book, following 2009's Kaspar. This time, Obomsawin turns her attention to queer lives and loves: On Loving Women gathers stories of awkward gay crushes, first loves, and queer coming-of-age experiences told to her by her friends.

Riposte Magazine #1

Riposte Magazine #1

Riposte, whose tagline reads "A Smart Magazine for Women" is full to the brim with interesting and inspiring content, including interviews, features, and lovely photos. The debut issue features such amazing women as Nelly Ben Hayoun (whose work includes the International Space Orchestra), Françoise Mouly (longtime New Yorker art editor), Claire de Rouen (of the eponymous London bookstore specializing in fashion and photography) and many more. We already can't wait for future issues to come out!

Spheres Magazine - Rafaël Rozendaal issue

Spheres Magazine - Rafaël Rozendaal issue

Spheres is a new magazine in which each issue is devoted to documenting collaborations between a different young artist and the editor of Spheres, graphic designer Philippe Karrer. The latest issue features Rafaël Rozendaal, a New York-based new media and net artist. Vibrant, technicolour images abound, including a super cool, colour-shifting hologram on the cover!

Serafim and Claire

Serafim and Claire
by Mark Lavorato

With his third novel, Montreal author Mark Lavorato is making a bid to join the ranks of Canadian master storytellers like Michael Ondaatje and Mordechai Richler. Serafim and Claire is a lush and poetic historical novel that delves into the seedy past of Montreal in the roaring twenties. Claire, a vaudeville dancer, and Serafim, a Portuguese immigrant and aspiring photographer, hatch a dangerous plot to improve their fortunes while all around them, the city simmers: corrupt politicians, the birth of jazz, the emergent suffragette movement, fascism in the Italian quarter, and the English/French divide cleaving through it all.

Meet the Artist: Alexander Calder

Meet the Artist: Alexander Calder
by Patricia Geis

Meet the Artist is a new series from Princeton Architectural Press that introduces kids to modern art through whimsical and vivid pop-up books. Patricia Greis' volume on Alexander Calder has charming pop-ups, pull-tabs and flaps of Calder's circus, toys, mobiles, stabiles, and more, along with lots of fun facts about Calder's life and work. Plus young readers can create their own 'sculpture' with stickers and paper cut-outs!
