Enrico Glicenstein belonged to a pioneering vanguard of independent European Sculptors of the early to mid 20th century who were credited with reviving the traditional art of direct carving—with a modern sensibility. At a time when most other sculptors had turned away from a more 'humanistic' tradition, Glicenstein remained uncompromising in his commitment to the human figure. Over 250 sculpted works celebrating the universality of human endeavor are detailed fully for the first time in this volume.

It relates the epic life journey of artist Kalman Aron as he emerges from the ashes of the Holocaust to explore the nature of humankind, his own humanity and the mystery of life—all on canvas. What unfolds is a visual record of one man's remarkable evolution from darkness to light. Healing himself through his art, Kalman Aron's example offers hope to all.

MARYLYN DINTENFASS PARALLEL PARK is the first book to document Marylyn Dintenfass' life-long love affair with automobiles, especially the culturally iconic high-powered, sporty, sexy muscle cars that streamed out of Detroit from the late 1950's to the mid-1970's. The book critically explores how Dintenfass' drawings, monotypes and paintings are the genesis for Parallel Park — a 30,000 square foot, site-specific installation, wrapping the four facades of The Lee County Justice Center Parking Garage in Fort Myers, Florida. It is one of the largest and most transformative art installations in the United States of the past decade.

After a decade of serving as Art Critic for the Village Voice, Jerry Saltz, a one time truck driver turned seasoned art critic, has since 2007 held the coveted title of Senior Art Critic at New York Magazine. Picking up in 2003, shortly after the wrenching contested 2000 election, the attacks of September 11, and the ramping-up of the Iraq War, Seeing Out Louder brilliantly reveals the rise of the hyper art market, the capitulation to money, the dark politics that form the background of this bright period, to the collapse and fall of this market and those politics.
