James Prosek: Ocean Fishes: Paintings of Saltwater Fish

“Ocean Fishes” presents the captivating watercolors of James Prosek, the artist the New York Times calls “the Audubon of the fishing world.”

In this new book, this renowned naturalist, artist, and fisherman captures thirty-five of the most pursued game fish—from striped bass to tarpon, swordfish to bonefish—as well as many creatures that share these marine ecosystems. These rich, highly detailed watercolors painted specifically for this volume to reflect Prosek’s individual experience with each single fish: the artist traveled the world to experience firsthand each species just out of the water before the fish lost their true colors. The original works are life-size portraits (from a 14-inch porgy to a 12-foot blue marlin), and this book includes details from the originals reproduced at full size to give a sense of scale.

This book is a must-have for saltwater anglers, conservationists, art lovers, and anyone passionate about the beauty of the coastline and the mysteries swimming off its shores.

This book is also available in a Limited Edition volume that includes a limited edition print suitable for framing and signed by the artist, James Prosek. The book for the deluxe limited editon will be bound in a special case embossed with the outline of one of Prosek’s iconic fish. The book and print will be nestled together in a beautiful cloth clamshell case featuring a tipped-on image on top and a silk pull ribbon within.

Behind-the-Scenes at a Photoshoot for Jill Greenberg’s Horses

Best known for her amazingly anthropomorphic and affectionate portraits of monkeys and bears, Jill Greenberg turns her lens to horses for her new photographic collection.

In the beautifully conceived book Horses, Jill Greenberg captures the powerful, romantic, and enigmatic nature of horses in photographs that make these animals all the more otherworldly yet familiar. Transformed by Greenberg’s lens, the horse’s powerful physical beauty becomes a hyper-real vision, and her gorgeous prints seduce us in a subtle manner with their sensuous, painterly textures. Horses were Greenberg’s first muse and love, and for this portfolio she returns to her original inspiration.

Featuring stunning photographs of a range of horse breeds, from Friesians and Andalusians to Arabian stallions, Lusitanos, and thoroughbred performance horses, this book is a gorgeous tribute to these spirited and powerful creatures and the perfect gift for those officially and unofficially devoted to horses, horseback riding, and racing.

Take a look inside Bunny Yeager’s Darkroom

“Though some will try to deny it, I believe that every woman, at some time in her life, has had or will have the desire to pose nude.” —Bunny Yeager

Snap, click, sizzle! Once the exclusive realm of the male, pin-up photography was invaded mid-century by a shapely young miss who could, and would, model for her own photographs.  Bunny Yeager’s Darkroom presents her story in her own words and, of course, her own photographs.  The only female pin-up photographer of her day, Bunny Yeager was also a model in her own right.  After winning several beauty pageants in Miami, Yeager went to photography school, and in 1955, she hit the jackpot with her shot of Bettie Page scantily clad in a Santa hat which sold instantly to the fledgling Playboy magazine.

Fashion Photographer Antonio Lopez: Fashion, Art, Sex, and Disco

“I’m from the generation that came to New York to meet their idols. In my case it was Andy Warhol and Antonio Lopez.” —Anna Sui

Best known for dazzling illustrations in Women’s Wear Daily, Vogue, the New York Times, Interview, and for high fashion labels, Antonio Lopez (1943–1987) was a major force in the fashion world for three decades. In the ’60s, Lopez’s vibrant illustrations helped usher youth culture into the pages of magazines, setting a new, free-flowing, sexually liberated standard for fashion imagery. Living in Paris during the 70s with his creative partner Juan Ramos, Lopez launched the modeling careers of Jerry Hall, Grace Jones, and Jessica Lange among others, and worked with design royalty like Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent. Returning to New York City in 1976, Antonio documented the sexy influence of athletic-wear, puffy, down coats, and break-dancing style, inspiring such designers as Norma Kamali and Anna Sui.

Lopez produced an incredible number of drawings, illustrations, paintings, photographs, and fantastic mixed-media journals, and the book Antonio Lopez: Fashion, Art, Sex, and Disco showcases his most iconic works, as well as never-before-seen photos, behind-the-scenes Polaroids, letters, and ephemera which, together, provide an understanding of the career trajectory of an extraordinarily talented artist.
