Our new book, Works, is published!

Works documents 15 recent projects and describes what we like:

Articulation in Carlo Scarpa’s details,
The contrasts of genre in John Zorn’s blocks of sound,
The work ethic of Andy Warhol,
The aura of Miles Davis’ On The Corner,
The abundance of a Russian table setting,
The blink in Chris Marker’s La Jetee,
Having the sky on both sides,
Trust in Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha,
The use of pink in de Kooning,
The interiority of Vermeer,
The brashness of Lee Krasner’s canvases,
The immateriality of apparent simplicity,
Revealing the beauty of a material...
