Influential on both sides of the Atlantic, Philippe Apeloig is considered one of the most fascinating and distinguished graphic designers working right now. Beginning his formidable career in 1985 when he designed the poster for the Musée d’Orsay’s first exhibition, Chicago, Birth of a Metropolis...

Juxtapoz is proud to announce the newest addition to our ongoing book series with Gingko Press, "Juxtapoz Psychedelic." The book serves as both a story of our magazine's origins and current state, with Psychedelic Art once again emerging as a fascinating and endlessly experimental genre. From classic names such as Alex Grey and Keiichi Tanaami to a new generation of universe expanders in Killian Eng and cover artist Andy Gillmore, Juxtapoz Psychedelic is one for the visionaries.

One of our favorite purchases from the weekend at the LA Art Book Fair was a copy of Picture Box Inc's (in conjunction with ForYourArt) wonderful book, "In the Good Name of the Company: Artworks and ephemera produced by or in tandem with the Colby Printing Company." Long an iconic visual look of Southern California that has traveled the globe, we have long admired the history of the Colby brand, and have wanted to see a nice comprehensive history of its aesthetic. And now there is one...

One of the beautiful things about appreciated art is that they have a book or exhibition catalogue for almost every genre or artist you love. This office in particular, although we receive a lot of books from wonderful publishers, spends a lot of times, on the road and at home, treasuring and searching for great and unique art books. Not to be redundant, but there is an "art" to the art book, and we are so excited to see the next exhibition at Otis College of Art & Design's Ben Maltz Gallery, "Binding Desire: Unfolding Artists Books."

We can't believe this book release slipped through our grasp last year, as one of our favorite art series of the past few years is Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber's "Animals With Sharpies." Drawn & Quarterly, a great Montreal-based publisher, released the series in book form last year. As the press release states, each painting depicts "an animal holding a sharpie, ostensibly writing a message. These messages are varied in nature: they are political and religious tracts, confessions, recipes, arithmetic problems and more..."

We have been covering REVOK in Juxtapoz for years, both in print and online, and have loved seeing the evolution of his work as the longtime Los Angeles-based artist moved to Detroit a few years back. The result has been a fascinating and growing collection of 3D collages of found materials. Revok's new book, "Made In Detroit," will be celebrating at MOCA on January 4, 2014 with a book signing event.

California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties is the publisher's newest release, with "the photographs in this volume include images of legendary surfers such as Joe Quigg, Tom Zahn, Dale Velzy and Renny Yater, in locations such as Rincon, Malibu, South Bay, Laguna and San Onofre...
