Amalgamate is the essential Blaine Fontana monograph, crammed full of his instantly recognizable paintings, sketchbooks, installations, sculptures, murals, mixed media works, and design projects.

Fontana deftly maneuvers between the high art and street art worlds, armed with the technical skill he picked up at Otis College of Art and Design where he acquired his MFA, as well as his post-high school years spent throwing up graffiti in the streets of Seattle and Portland.

Amalgamate draws from Fontana’s roots growing up on Bainbridge Island outside of Seattle, and integrates his rough-edged woodwork, sculptural explorations, influential color palette, and dynamic use of space in order to explore the dynamic imagery surrounding the divine symbolism of religious myths, worldly folklore, and current social dynamics. Fontana has extensive experience in the design world and recently founded his own creative/design agency Fontana Studios with his wife Eugenie Fontana.



Amalgamate features an introduction by poet Derrick Brown, whose written poetry and performances have won him the California Independent Book Critics' Award in 2004 and six first-place slam finishes.

Stunning Houses features 50 world-class projects that are quite literally breathtaking. Architectural masterpieces that are perfectly sited in a wide variety of topographic locales and climatic zones, from forest or mountain range to perched on a seaside cliff. Some are hidden in the landscape, nestled in amongst the trees and vegetation, others boldly present for all to see. Flights of fancy are given free reign, from houseboats to tree houses. One resembles an intergalactic spaceship that has just landed, on the surface of a lake, another, a gigantic fossil gastropod that has just been unearthed. The natural world is incorporated through the use of organic materials such as wood and stone or the creation or rooftop gardens - some with water features - the modern, through the dramatic use of glass and open space, which lighten the presence of such dense materials as steel and concrete. Prepare to be amazed. Includes plans and work by: Architects Collective, Studio Arthur Casas, Bercy Chen Studio, Feldman Architecture, JHG Jorge Hernndez de la Garza, Hans van Heeswijk Architects, Kotaro Ide, David Jameson, Olson Kundig Architects, Drew Mandel Architects, MHM Architects, Robert Harvey Oshatz, Sagan Piechota Architecture, Ibarra Rosano Architects, TACT Architecture and Idis Turato/Turato Architecture.
