Spring has sprung from around the corner, and with it, the promise of new books! Here’s a look at some of the new titles in the store.
Wayward Cognitions is a collection of photographs by Ed Templeton (born 1972), chosen from his archives spanning 20 years. For this volume, Templeton selected photographs that do not fit into his usual manner of organizing by theme or subject. In past publications he has arranged his work in straightforward groupings such as Teenage Kissers, Teenage Smokers, or photographs shot from a moving car (as in his book The Seconds Pass)

The Bike Riders
First published in 1968, and now back in print for the first time in ten years, The Bikeridersexplores firsthand the stories and personalities of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club. This journal-size volume features original black-and-white photographs and transcribed interviews by Lyon, made from 1963 to 1967, when he was a member of the Outlaws gang. Authentic, personal and uncompromising, Lyon’s depiction of individuals on the outskirts of society offers a gritty yet humane perspective that subverts more commercialized treatments of Americana. Akin to the documentary style of 1960s-era New Journalism made famous by writers such as Hunter S. Thompson, Joan Didion and Tom Wolfe, Lyon’s photography is saturation reporting at its finest. The Bikeriders is a touchstone publication of 1960s counterculture, crucially defining the vision of the outlaw biker as found in Easy Rider and countless other movies and photobooks.

The Complete Posters of Tadanori Yokoo
Few artists of any medium have captured successfully in their work the visual inundation common to those living in large cosmopolitan cities such as Tokyo, New York, London or Hong Kong. We are bombarded on a daily basis with all types of visual information and images from print media, smart phones and even some forms of public transformation. This exhibition catalogue from the National Museum of Osaka (2010) shows Tadanori Yokoos considerable and remarkable print and poster production. Includes essays by Christopher Mount, a former curator at MoMA and editor of I.D. Magazine and Akira Tatehata, director of The National Museum of Osaka.
