Camille Seaman is a TED Senior Fellow whose TED Talk on her photographs of supercell storms has garnered more than 1,600,000 views. She has received a National Geographic Award, and her photographs appear in publications includingTime,The New York Times, andMen's Journal.

      "Equal parts terrifying and beautiful, gathering storm clouds force the reader to stop, look - and breathe - in a new book by photographer Camille Seaman. It's easy to imagine you are the one alone on the roads in June in Minnesota and across the Plains states, supercells swirling, contorting and swallowing the sky, a witness to nature's force. Seaman puts the reader squarely in her shoes. Some photos bear no description other than a timestamp of their month, year and state. With others, Seaman is spare with her words, describing the storm's structure or impact. Still, words never get in the way, allowing her photos to gather power, page to page."
      - Minneapolis Star Tribune

      "The brooding skyscapes, rendered in grays, blacks, and dark browns, capture moments of immense natural turmoil--a huge wedge tornado, crackling laceworks of lightning, opaque supercell clouds that resemble giants' feet bestriding the plains. The images impart a sense of profound human frailty in the face of nature's fury."
      - Natural History Magazine
      "The Big Cloud" pulls back from the storms, effectively displaying the gigantic physics at work in the churning atmosphere; some of the best photos show the towering skies with tiny, seemingly insignificant homes far of in the distance. Seaman knows the buildings provide context for the vast forces up above."
      -The Oklahoman

      "The Big Cloud is a catalog of beautiful, ominous portraits of severe weather."
      - Mental Floss
      "Over the course of 176 pages, more than 100 of Seaman's photographs demonstrate the power of nature. Each storm has its own personality exemplified by the rich colors and amorphous shape of the clouds. Through her expert lens, each photograph appears as a landscape painting, literally showing the calm before the storm."
      - My Modern Met

      "In total, Seaman spent seven years searching for gathering clouds in some of America's stormiest states: Nebraska, South Dakota, Kansas. Her photographs, now brought together in the new book The Big Cloud, are an spectacular document of nature's power. They show clouds thick and ominous, or funnel-shaped, hovering over a rural landscape or spiked with lightning."
      - Atlas Obscura

      "In her new book, "The Big Cloud," Seaman continues her exploration of nature by capturing the heavenly beauty and darkest dangers of these vast, constantly transforming bodies. Whether a half-mile-long wedge tornado, a fluffy cumulus field or multitiered shelf clouds, her subjects required an extreme amount of patience." - Los Angeles Times
      "A photographer captures dramatic images of supercell thunderstorms, tornadoes and other weather phenomena in a new book."
      - The Wall Street Journal

      "Captivating photographs of storm clouds by Camille Seaman show nature's power. From melting icebergs at both poles to stormy states across America, Seaman showcases the beauty, terror, and fragility of nature in her digital and film images."

      Although people have fished for food since the dawn of time, fishing today is one of the most popular pastimes in the world—an estimated 220 million people worldwide are recreational anglers, according to the World Bank. While many enjoy the Zen of waiting patiently for a strike in the great outdoors, for others, at least judging from this quirky collection of fishermen and women fishing is clearly a time of great fun, even hilarity. In this follow-up to her delightful People Knitting, photo archivist and collector Barbara Levine, along with Paige Ramey, netted these curious, humorous, and sometimes outrageous photos of Edwardian dowagers, tiny babies, sunburned sportsmen, and bathing beauties preparing tackle boxes, casting their lures, and displaying the catch of the day. A tribute to this perennial outdoor pastime, this is the perfect gift for the fisher in your life.

      "Over a decade ago, Julian Rothenstein published A2Z, a cornucopia of unconventional alphabets, emblems, letters, and signs to inspire practical and creative use. A2Z+ is a continuation that contains a newly discovered wealth of rare graphics and ephemera including the statistical charts of black activist W.E.B. Du Bois. Thoughtfully produced and detailed, this version is an indispensable source of ideas and inspiration for adaptive contemporary typographic reinterpretation."

      "There's a beautifully scattergun approach to A2Z+ Alphabets and Signs, a gorgeous compendium of loosely curated typographic ephemera and graphics..What's so charming about the book is its subtle reconfiguring of the idea of what an alphabet can be. Lettering and symbolism is so much more than conventual typographic characters, and it proves the beauty in communicating through creative solutions and symbols."

      A fascinating design history and field guide to one of modern life's everyday conveniences, with 200 full close-up photographs and patent designs.

      A fun look at how the genius of design is often hidden in plain sight. Ever wonder about how everyday objects come to look the way they do? The disposable coffee lid is a design paradox of the modern era. It must simultaneously open and close to allow for drinking on the go while protecting against unwanted spillage. See your coffee cup lid for what it really is: a magical design artifact that contains fascinating variations.

      The premier guide for take-out coffee drinkers everywhere – Learn more about the mechanics behind your morning cup of joe. Impress and stump the coffee-aficionados in your life with your expansive knowledge of slosh-drainage systems, ergonomic drink apertures, foam accommodation techniques, and sensory enhancement features.

      From the world's largest coffee lid collection – Louise Harpman and Scott Specht have collected over 550 of these triumphs of industrial design for decades, creating whatSmithsonian magazine calls "the world's largest collection of coffee cup lids."
      Bio
      Louise Harpman practices architecture in New York City and Scott Specht in New York City and Austin Texas. Their obsession with coffee cup lids stems from their aesthetic interest in familiar objects that contain unique and endlessly fascinating variations.

      "There's something poignant about designing a mass-produced object heading directly for the trash can. Like most quotidian artifacts of our era, the disposable coffee cup lid fulfills its purpose when it's forgettable but effective. And as we discover in this short, deft, caffeinated volume, the quest for perfection-for spill-proof sublimity-is far from over."
      - Caroline Baumann, Director, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
      "Two design geeks crazed for coffee-cup lids."
      - The New Yorker
      "This short, sharp and subtly witty new book by Austin architect Scott Specht - along with fellow collector and design analyst Louise Harpman - illuminates an ordinary object many of us encounter every day."
      - Austin American-Statesman

      "This is a far, far deeper dive than other mortals have ever dared into the aesthetics and industrial, cultural, and design history of the all-too-human struggle to prevent hot coffee from sloshing in unwelcome ways."
      - Mark Singer, The New Yorker
      "Once you start thinking and learning about design, it changes the way you see everything. Coffee Lids is the perfect encapsulation of this, full of close-up photographs and patent drawings that show how this everyday object is a true work of functional art."
      - BuzzFeed
      "There has been a study or two about lids. But this is the most incisive lido-pedia I've seen, with facts galore to talk about with your favorite barista. Little would you suspect that so much high technology goes into making the perfect lid or how many patents exist for so many of them. Doubtless every pucker and puncture has a purpose, and if you've ever wondered what the function is, you will have a good time flipping through the facts and photos of some exquisite lids that these lid-ficianos have assembled."
      - Daily Heller/Printmag.com
      "The coffee cup lid is one of those seemingly mundane inventions that are so fully integrated into modern life, they're easy to overlook. But as Harpman details in the introduction to the new book she co-wrote with Specht, Coffee Lids: Peel, Pinch, Pucker, Puncture, there is a fascinating design history behind the objects."
      - Atlas Obscura
      "Reading "Coffee Lids: Peel, Pinch, Pucker, Puncture" is a deeply satisfying investigation into how a plastic disposable object can actually be a feat of design genius." - Fresh Cup Magazine
      "Proving there is magic in the everyday, architects Louise Harpman and Scott Specht have provided us with a field guide to lids for take-out coffee. After perusing the book, it's impossible to look at the humble disposables the same way again."
      - Interior Design
      "A close examination of everyday, even mundane objects can be the starting point for drawing wider conclusions about the world. Gottfried Semper and Adolf Loos analyzed ancient vases and speculated about the lives of the people who made and used them; Louise Harpman and Scott Specht do the same with coffee lids."
      - Deyan Sudjic, Director, the Design Museum, London
      "If you possess any shred of curiosity about the objects at all - about the myriad varieties of design shaping the things, about the ways in which they're functional and/or elegant, about the manner in which they interact with the personal mouth-level distribution of the hot liquid they help to contain . then you'll want to get this book."
      - Austin Chronicle

      "Harpman and Specht's book, "Coffee Lids," puts the pair's collection into context through essays, patent diagrams and photographs that -- when viewed in quick succession -- reveal the subtle differences in design." - CNN Style
      "From slits and slots to slosh drainage systems and condiment capsules, this magical little book is a tour de force of observational awareness, sitting squarely at the nexus of meaning, making, and material culture. Should be required reading for every barista on the planet."
      - Jessica Helfand, Design Observer
      "A thousand years from now, when alien anthropologists attempt to understand the homo caffeinatus of late modernity, they will find no better guide than this absorbing, beautiful book. The many technical solutions for transforming the leisurely, social act of drinking coffee into a mechanism by which caffeine could be delivered into the central nervous systems of today's rushed citizens will no doubt make our future visitors gasp at the absurd ingenuity of the primate that once ruled this planet."
      - Sina Najafi, Editor in Chief, Cabinet magazine
      "A quirky look at the development and design of the now-ubiquitous lid."
      - Parade
      "A new book explores the subtly impressive design behind the sippable plastic lid."

      Description
      For decades, Philip Ashforth Coppola has meticulously documented the New York City subway in a series of extraordinary drawings, detailing the terracotta mosaics, faience, and tile patterns that millions of riders pass by every day. Coppola's drawings are what Hyperallergic calls "the most encyclopedic history of the art and architecture of the New York City subway system." Along with Coppola's intricate ink drawings are anecdotes he assembled through painstaking research involving hundreds of hours poring through microfilms to discover the names behind the artisanship of what is rightly called New York's largest public art work—its legendary subway system.

      "One-Track Mind: Drawing the New York Subway is the perfect companion for preoccupied New Yorkers who overlook the faiences, terra-cotta mosaics and other gewgaws originally inspired by the City Beautiful movement, and nowadays a productive diversion for riders impatiently awaiting overdue trains."
      - The New York Times
      "For the last 40 years, Coppola has meticulously documented every subway station in New York, drawing every mosaic mural, sign, and detail...After decades of obsessively documenting the subway system, Coppola is finally getting his due. Princeton Architectural Press is publishing the first commercial version of his drawings for the general public in a volume called One-Track Mind: Drawing the New York Subway. The book pays homage to Coppola's labor of love and presents a selection of his sketches of the most iconic art in the New York City subway system." - FastCo.Design
      "Coppola's work revels in New York's Gilded Age, when the subway was still considered groundbreaking and its artistry was something marveled at openly. In the book's introduction, [editors] Workman and Bookstein write that they hope it "can also remind New Yorker and visitor alike that there is beauty all around us. You just have to look."
      -City Lab

      "Coppola has single-handedly documented a monumental public subway system, a project that took hundreds of professionals and artisans to create. One-Track Mind demonstrates just how impressive one man's private life-time passion can be. It is a classy tribute to a dedicated and determined artist."
      - New York Journal of Books

      "Artist [Philip Ashforth] Coppola (Silver Connections) documents the mosaics and architectural elements adorning New York City's subway stations in painstaking detail in this impressive homage to New York City's subway stations...This small art book is an outstanding appreciation of one of the city's most begrimed environments and a reminder to take some time and appreciate one's surroundings." - Publisher's Weekly
      "Architecture and underground interest, well, underground-beneath Gotham's streets. Collected here for your perusal, Philip Ashforth Coppola's intricate drawings celebrate our subway's decorative elements, from overlooked mosaics and terra-cotta plaques to faience medallions and cornices."
      - Time Out New York
      "A cross between an artist and an archeologist, [Philip Ashforth Copolla] has documented the New York City subway with historical descriptions, specifications, and detailed black and white line drawings that cover typography, terra cotta mosaics, faience, and tile patterns-all of which are rarely noticed by the millions of riders passing by every day-but are well illustrated in this book."
      - Design Issues
      Winner, 2019 New York City Book Award

      "While beauty and efficiency are probably not what most New Yorkers think of when they imagine the subway, one must admit that the stations aren't boring. And Coppola aims to prove it, one mosaic at a time." - Atlas Obscura

      Description
      Although the technique of screen printing dates back to first-century China, it became the preferred printing method of choice for musical and political counterculture movements of the 1960s, thanks to its ease, cost, and flexibility. It moved into the mainstream with Andy Warhol's iconic screen print of Marilyn Monroe, and was quickly adopted by artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg. Screen printing has become even more widespread with the many demonstrations, marches, and grassroots protests in the wake of the American presidential election of 2016.Screen Printing: The Ultimate Studio Guide is a definitive, fully illustrated manual on the techniques, materials, and processes of screen printing. An essential and highly practical reference, this book is equally suited for beginning and experienced printers, with step-by-step tutorials on basic and advanced techniques, as well as "workshops" by several of the world's best-known screen printers, including Ben Eine and Bob Gill.
