Our new fall list has one major highlight: the actress
Ingrid Bergman, legendary star of movies such as Casablanca, For
Whom the Bell Tolls, and Notorious. In the light of her forthcoming
centenary, the Bergman family opened the treasure troves of the family archive
and authorized Schirmer/Mosel to produce the ultimate Ingrid Bergman picture
book: it encompasses everything from private photographs to professional
portraits, film stills, glamour shots, and indiscrete paparazzi photos.
Sweden, Berlin, Hollywood, and Italy; her controversial marriage to Roberto
Rossellini; four children, 44 films, and three Oscars; as well as friendships
with Hemingway, Robert Capa, and Alfred Hitchcock mark the highlights of her
career, and all are captured in our book. More Hollywood, more film, more
beauty was never assembled in one book in recent years.
Corbijn, whose breathtaking book co-authored by Tom Waits sold out within
15 minutes on its first day of publication, will be back this fall with a new
film book accompanying his second feature film,
A Most Wanted Man, based on a novel by John Le Carré.
Edward Hopper drawings show at the Whitney Museum in New York which will
subsequently travel to Dallas and Minneapolis, brings back into focus
Edward Hopper: Paintings and Ledger Book Drawings that is a special teaser
by the Estate.
Balthus show at the New York Metropolitan Museum is accompanied by a
Balthus monograph written by Metropolitan curator Sabine Rewald, and by an
insightful book on
Balthus' home in Switzerland by Kishin Shinoyama.
John Cage Ryoanji Drawings book is still awaiting its first review. It
will certainly attract the cognoscenti and poetic spirits.
third volume of Cy Twombly Drawings, covering the formative years
1961-1963, when New York was shocked by early pop painting, is currently at
press, to be delivered this fall as well.
We've never had so many great American artists in one list
I hope you will enjoy what we have prepared for you.
In books we trust!
