North Korea certainly wouldn’t come first on a general list of dream destinations. Nevertheless, the country exudes an eerie fascination. It’s a mystery, an anonymous country isolated from the rest of the world. With two friends, German photojournalist Julia Leeb made a journey to better understand the country and its people. The result is a spectacular illustrated volume that offers a riveting look at its architecture, culture, and so­ciety. Readers get to immerse themselves in an unknown world. We witness celebrations for the 100th birthday of the country’s founder, Kim Il Sung, and follow hundreds of North Koreans as they participate in an Arirang (Korean folk song) synchronized dance spectacle. But even the “quieter” impressions evoke emotion in the viewer: an excited bride, a mother with child—everyday scenes that are somehow quite different. These multi-layered images linger in the memory long afterwards, even when you have already put the book aside.

Sable Island, a small island off the coast of eastern Canada is the site of some 500 wild horses, 500 shipwrecks and 500 years of known history. Never settled, the island, also known as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” has seen temporary occupation by shipwrecked sailors, transported convicts, pirates and wreckers. The wild horses, named for the island they inhabit, abandoned there long ago or cast ashore from wrecks, are now the only terrestrial mammals on Sable Island.
Roberto Dutesco’s twenty years’ documentation of Sable Island comes to you as a stunning volume of photographs, an unprecedented collection of extraordinary moments in a place uninhabited by humans, where the wild horses run free, unaware and unafraid of man. Dutesco portrays the wild beauty of these horses as well as the barren and unspoiled quality of the island, creating an immersive photographic memoir that captures the soul and spirit.
The Romanian-born Canadian photographer’s aim is to document and record this enchanted place for posterity, for our children’s children, as an important place in Earth’s history, and more so in our current moment, when unique wild places are vanishing. It is Dutesco’s life project, celebrating the beauty he encountered in a place forgotten by time, desire and conquest—Sable Island.

Our days are numbered... so are our currencies, streets and the pages of our books. Numbers are used to mark the passage of time, denote value and record location. There is very little they are not involved in, but perhaps it is time for a makeover– a re-envisioning not of what they express, but how they are expressed. Bold, simple and always iconic, they provide the perfect forms for experimentation. A designers dream canvas, the possible variations of color, form and pattern are endless. From the minimally embellished to the highly stylized, Graphic Digits showcases original designs that breathe life into numbers. Includes calendar, packaging and promotion design, fashion, signage and brand identities.

Hendrick Beikirch, or ECB, is seeking to change our perception of what graffiti is or can be by extending its limits. ECB is a German painter working on large-scale black and white or grayscale murals in public spaces worldwide. This new book is a compilation of the artists work, and provides insight into that work through both interviews and photographs of his process and execution. ECB looks for new approaches and blurs the lines between fine art and graffiti. The scale of his outdoor murals does not take away from the familiarity created in his portraits, often of anonymous faces, making the work accessible to the masses. The astounding scale he works at is made evident in one of his best-known works, _Where there is no struggle, there is no strength. Located in Busan, South Korea, the mural of a local fisherman is over 20 stories and measures 230 feet, making it Asias tallest mural. Photographs in the book show the work in progress, as well as its context situated against the backdrop of Busans skyscrapers. Blurring Boundaries is an intimate photographic look at ECBs process, body of work and the people who inspire him.
