Dear Friends,
Welcome to the March 2014 newsletter!
In this selection, you will find an article by our collaborator and friend Olivier Namias, two catalogues of exhibitions (Capa, Lynch) and, of course, new books of photography and architecture.
Among them, we are really happy to feature the last volume of the serie by Parr and Badger and the one devoted to this rather unknown gymansium by Le Corbusier in Bagdhad.
We are also featuring a back list book (Concrete Mushrooms) and two books (From Counterculture and Ringolevio) we think really useful to understand our way of living in our occidental societies.
To conclude, please stay tuned on the new project by Brian Rose dedicated to the Meatpacking District in New York City: its Kickstarter goal has been reached but you can continue to pre order books.
If you have any suggestions do not hesitate to drop us a word.
Thank you for reading. Enjoy our selection!
