Photographie: Christian Dior by Brigitte Niedermair

Informed by her parallel paths as an artist and a photographer, Brigitte Niedermair expands the conventions and biases of the fashion image system. Her work focuses on representations of women’s bodies in art and culture, with deeply constructed images and striking compositions that make for a distinctive style.

This volume explores the remarkable relationship between Dior and Niedermair’s aesthetic, resulting in photographs radiating a strong sense of unconventional femininity. The first section is devoted to the collaboration throughout the recent years, followed by a portfolio of exclusive images of historical and iconic Christian Dior creations. Captured with an analogic, classical technique in a five-by-four-inch format – which was used during photography’s early beginnings – 42 pieces from Dior archives are photographed twice, with each version of the image offering a unique perspective and revealing hidden details, such as the construction of the designs. With the principal essay by Olivier Gabet and contributions by Dior’s creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, and artists and friends of Niedermair, this beautifully crafted book offers an extraordinary look into one of today’s most fascinating creatives.

Angels and Saints With a Guide to the Illustrations by Mary Wellesley
Angels and Saints With a Guide to the Illustrations by Mary Wellesley

Angels have soared through Western culture and consciousness from Biblical to contemporary times. But what do we really know about these celestial beings? Where do they come from, what are they made of, how do they communicate and perceive? The celebrated essayist Eliot Weinberger has mined and deconstructed, resurrected and distilled centuries of theology into an awe-inspiring exploration of the heavenly host.
From a litany of angelic voices, Weinberger’s lyrical meditation then turns to the earthly counterparts, the saints, their lives retold in a series of vibrant and playful capsule biographies, followed by a glimpse of the afterlife.
Threaded throughout Angels & Saints are the glorious illuminated grid poems by the eighteenth-century Benedictine monk Hrabanus Maurus. These astonishingly complex, proto-\”concrete\” poems are untangled in a lucid afterword by the medieval scholar and historian Mary Wellesley.

Thought Forms A Record of Clairvoyant Investigation
Thought Forms A Record of Clairvoyant Investigation

First released in 1901, Thought-Forms was an in-depth exploration on the visual manifestations of thoughts and the notion that they exist as objects. Conceived by renowned theosophists Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater, the book consists of 58 illustrations based on Besant and Leadbeater’s clairvoyant observations on how music, emotions, experiences, and colors affect thought forms. Expanding beyond its original readership, the book would have great influence on twentieth-century art and go on to inspire many artists including Wassily Kandinsky, Hilma af Klint, Piet Mondrian, and Paul Klee. This updated edition features a new introduction by famed occult author, Mitch Horowitz.
