Bosco Sodi
The first comprehensive publication on Mexican-born artist Bosco Sodi, whose paintings and sculptures combine preindustrial minimalist and arte povera traditions with elements of Oaxacan and Japanese culture. Sodi has described his creative process as controlled chaos that makes something completely unrepeatable and unique. In his most celebrated body of work, the artist mixes raw pigment with sawdust, wood, pulp, and natural fibers to create the dense surfaces of monochrome paintings. As the layers of material dry, fissured landscapes form without the guidance or intervention of the artist. Sodi's sculptural process reflects traditions of his Mexican heritage. At his studio, Casa Wabi, in Oaxaca, he uses raw earth clay to create kiln-fired cubes, spheres, and bricks. Stacked into columns as minimalist sculpture or assembled as a field or wall, these projects range in scale from architectural installations to earthworks. Sodi also collects solidified volcanic magma from the Ceboruco volcano to make rock sculptures. These fragments are coated in a ceramic glaze and precious metals, uniting geological processes with art-making techniques. This book reflects Sodi's distinct material processes, with essays detailing his relationship to Oaxacan and wabi-sabi aesthetics, as well as his engagement with artistic traditions ranging from minimalism to arte povera to land art.

Zeng Fanzhi Untitled
This is the first monograph dedicated to Zeng Fanzhi's long-acclaimed Abstract Landscape series since its initiation in 2002. This unique book illustrates the complete painting process and development behind a singular work, Zeng Fanzhi's Untitled (2018). Part of the Abstract Landscape series, it was acquired in the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). The volume provides a comprehensive eighteen-year overview of Zeng's painting practices in abstraction, pinpointing the latest changes within the series in particular. It features more than 180 high-resolution images of the painting process, starting from a plain canvas fabric, to the application of layers of paint, down to the meticulous intermingling and layering of different color palettes and strokes, ending in a complex pictorial presentation. As such, it offers the reader an intimate glimpse into how Zeng's abstract art is gradually developed, as if one were in the artist's studio. It presents primary, never-before-seen materials that form an overview of the artist's intriguing painting practice. The book includes essays by Michael Govan and researchers from LACMA, as well as a contribution from Dr. Richard Shiff, who has been researching and analyzing the artist for nearly a decade.

Part of a series of exciting and luxurious Flame Tree Notebooks. Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed then foil stamped. And they're powerfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps and two bookmarks. These are perfect for personal use and make a dazzling gift. This example is based on Claude Monet's Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies. 'All of a sudden,' Monet would one day recall, 'I had the revelation of the enchantment of my pond. I took up my palette...' And the rest is art-history. Again and again - well over 200 times, and often working on an enormous scale - Claude Monet would return to water lilies as his subject.

Vincent van Gogh: Wheat Field with Cypresses (Foiled Blank Journal)

Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed then foil stamped. And they're powerfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps and two bookmarks. These are perfect for personal use and make a dazzling gift. This example is based on Vincent van Gogh's Wheat Field with Cypresses. Vincent Van Gogh composed this painting while he was in the Saint-Remy mental asylum, near Arles. The bold use of impasto and the beauty of the towering trees have made this one of his most recognisable works. There are various other versions of the painting, one of which features a closer view of the cypresses painted vertically, as well as a replica of this version that Van Gogh painted for his mother and sister.

Mixed Media Landscapes and Seascapes
Artist and teacher Chris Forsey gives a useful and insightful book on using mixed media - ever growing in popularity - to create stunning landscapes and seascapes. It concentrates on combining water-based media - watercolour, pastels, wax crayons, ink and acrylics - which is an exciting and often unpredictable way to paint. It allows the artist to create textures and effects that can exhilarate the painting surface with unusual serendipitous washes, smears and drifts of colour and tone. The reader is encouraged to experiment with media, and advice, instruction and step-by-step demonstrations are given to show how to get the best from two, three or four different media working together. The introduction helps the reader determine what they wish to achieve in a painting, and then the book is divided into chapters concentrating on one of the media combinations: wax crayon and watercolour; oil pastel, watercolour and acrylic; oil pastel and acrylics; oil pastel, watercolour, ink and acrylics. It has plenty of step-by-step demonstrations on how to combine the materials, with finished examples of finished paintings. The book offers the reader an array of ways to improve their landscape and seascape painting, taking it to a new level. c. 20-25,000 words
