This 2014 monograph was published jointly by the High Museum of Art and the University of Texas Press to accompany the Museum’s landmark exhibition of the same title. Both the exhibition and book are the most comprehensive and meaningful presentations of Wynn’s creative journey we have seen. In addition to a ground-breaking essay by exhibition curator Brett Abbott, there are 110 stunning black-and-white and color reproductions, including some from the Bullock estate that have never been published before. The 208-page, hardbound volume also contains an illustrated chronology and extensive bibliography as well as sections on collections, exhibitions, plate information, and notes.
New book and retrospective exhibit from DAVID J. CAROL
Photographs from 1993-2016 with an essay by Jason Eskenazi
David J. Carol’s new book, NO PLAN B, from publisher Peanut Press, is a retrospective of his uniquely humorous and often surreal personal work from the 1990s to the present. The book is a culmination of images from David’s “road trips” from the Arctic Ocean to post-Soviet Russia, from the Mojave Desert to the streets of Istanbul. Consisting of 32 black and white photographs, with an afterward by renowned photojournalist Jason Eskenazi, NO PLAN B is available in two bindings; the “black” trade edition, and a “white” limited edition, which includes a gelatin silver print signed and numbered by the artist. NO PLAN B is available for sale online at Peanut Press.
The Art of Fran Forman
From the beautiful end pages, beginning to end Fran Forman’s book, “Escape Artist” takes you on a journey.

They tell of us of despair and hope, longing and joy. Dreams and nightmares.
This book is a treasure and a gift of Frans work. With poetry and stories from Michelle Blake to start us on the this journey, so on a quiet day we too can become escape artist
