Collage is as topical as ever. The Age of Collage Vol. 2 is a striking collection of work that ranges from subversive to museum-worthy. While some examples make explicit statements, others are gloriously Dada.Bringing disparate images and items together, collage transcends the boundaries between artistic disciplines. The traditionally analog technique has its roots in surrealism and Dada. Having effortlessly evolved to embrace digital tools and the combinatory freedom that they offer, collage is now making a promising comeback. The Age of Collage Vol.2 presents the work of more than 80 collage artists from established names including John Baldessari and Richard Prince to up-andcoming talents such as Lola Dupré. A follow- up to The Age of Collage, the book is a comprehensive showcase of the surprising diversity of this genre today.
From the cult magazine, Kinfolk, comes the much anticipated Kinfolk Home. Interest in home design has been on the rise for some time, but Kinfolk’s focus on slowing down and creating a more intentional, beautiful home is where the attention is shifting. Through luscious photographs and insightful interviews, The Kinfolk Home takes us into 40 homes around the world, from the Americas to Europe, Asia to Africa, ending in Australia. The homes range from an old cabin in the woods to clean-lined modern apartments, from singles living in small spaces to sprawling, multigenerational houses in the country. Each will feel unmistakably Kinfolk. The book will function as a companion piece to The Kinfolk Table, and will be the same size and format.
