Librairie Drawn & Quarterly

In the weekly Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week, the Montreal bookstore recommends several new works of fiction, art books, and comics.

Ad Reinhardt: How to Look: Art Comics

Ad Reinhardt: How to Look:Art Comics
by Ad Reinhardt

Here we have the brand new monograph of the influential American abstract painter, Ad Reinhardt's "How to Look" cartoons, originally published in the leftist daily PM in the 1940s. All of his most famous satirical cartoons, which managed to critique the art world in a particularly spot-on, funny manner, have been reproduced from their original plates.

Jacky's Diary

Jacky's Diary

This new hardcover collection of Mendelsohn's comics has the entire run of the original Sunday strip Jacky's Diary, plus an extensive introduction by Mendelsohn himself revealing some of his own never before seen photos.

The always-innovative crew behind photography magazine Aperture does not disappoint with their latest offering. The spring 2014 issue is guest edited by Susan Meiselas, and focuses on the work of documentary photographers in the changing landscape of contemporary photojournalism.

Reading Andy Warhol: Author Illustrator Publisher

Reading Andy Warhol: Author Illustrator Publisher
by Andy Warhol

Everyone knows that Andy Warhol was a man of many talents, but did you know he was a serious bibliophile? This book hones in on Warhol's lifelong affinity for books and publishing, which is perhaps one of the lesser-known aspects of the Pop artist's wide-ranging career, although he was certainly more than a mere dabbler in the literary world. Inside are over 300 illustrations, as well as 12 essays and plenty of archival material.
