Parallel Encyclopedia #2
by Batia Suter


Second volume of the “Parallel Encyclopedia”.

Batia Suter’s work intuitively situates found images in new contexts to provoke surprising reactions and significative possibilities. This volume follows on from the first ‘Parallel Encyclopedia’, published in 2007. Underlying themes of Suter’s practice are the “iconification” and “immunogenicity” of old images, and the circumstances by which they become charged with new associative values. “In my work, I collect groups of images based on various themes and characteristics, and I investigate how they can manipulate each other, depending on where and how they are placed. In the process of making this book, narrative lines unfolded before my eyes as I shifted images around.”

Hans Hollein


The great Hans Hollein Extra Edition of a+u (Architecture and Urbanism) published in Tokyo in 1985 and long out of print.

This publication makes for probably the most generous monograph ever published on Hans Hollein, Austrian architect and designer and key figure of postmodern architecture (30 March 1934 – 24 April 2014).

Lavishly illustrated with photography, sketches and plan drawings across 260 pages, this dense book profiles his realised architectural buildings (including the incredible Retti Candle Shop, Austrian Travel Agencies, Schullin Jewelry Shops, Perchtoldsdorf Town Hall, Munincipal Museum Abteiberg Monchengladbach, amongst many more); miscellaneous realised works (including his many furniture and object designs for Herman Miller, Memphis, Poltronova, Alessi, Wittmann) and interiors, exhibition and stage designs (for the Milan Triennale, Venice Biennale and many more); his unrealised projects (all visualised through plans and photography of Hollein’s architectural models), and accompanied by essays from Kenneth Frampton and Joseph Rykwert, an introduction, a biography and a list of works.

A must for anyone interested in the breadth of this great designer’s work through the 1960s-1980s.

* Condition: Very Good (tight, clean copy throughout, light wear from age, some rubbing to spine/covers overall very good) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

The Form of the Book Book

Now it in its third printing (green cover), The Form of the Book Book brings together essential essays on the book – its history, present, and possible futures – by preeminent graphic designers and graphic design theorists/historians including Chrissie Charlton, Catherine de Smet, James Goggin, Jennie Eneqvist, Roland Früh & Corina Neuenschwander, Sarah Gottlieb, Richard Hollis and Armand Mevis. In a nod to Jan Tschichold’s famous collection of essays The Form of the Book, first published in 1975, this book offers in-depth analyses of key moments in the history of book design in order to better imagine the many forms the book will take, and is already taking, in our digital age.
