All the most iconic designs are here."―The Observer "How did one man change our minds on headgear?

The unseen stories behind all the 'moments'."―The Independent "An usually revealing insight into the designer's work."―Harper's Bazaar "Revealing [...] photos of Treacy at work. He looks determined and serious, but he has a kind face and he's never a poseur... In short, this is a cool book about a great guy."―VICE "The head-topper extraordinaire gets a tip of the cap in the new book... Featuring over 200 images of the milliner's museum-quality lids, including head-turning snaps of mega-fierce singer and Bond villainess Grace Jones."―InStyle "Inside the pages are 200 intimate pictures covering everything from Treacy's years at 69 Elizabeth Street to the scene backstage at fashion shows to the dignified funeral held for Treacy's beloved Jack Russell terrier, Mr. Pig."―The New York Times Style Magazine blog More about Philip Tracey: “Every hat I have ever made has begun in my mind as a photograph. I can see it on the model, at the right angle, before I even begin.” –Philip Treacy Over the past two decades, Philip Treacy’s hats have been among the fashion world’s most extraordinary creations. They have attracted the attention of iconic image-makers and icons from Grace Jones to Lady Gaga, Madonna to Queen Camilla. The greatest photographers of the era, including such legends as Irving Penn and Richard Avedon, along with Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Bruce Weber, and Patrick Demarchelier have chosen Treacy’s hats for some of the most memorable fashion images of our times.

So omnipresent is he at major magazine shoots and A-list events—an insider if ever there was one—that he has become a celebrity himself. The launch of Testino’s latest book, to celebrate his inaugural exhibition in China, brings together an exciting selection of his best studio work with glamorous examples of his candid shots.

  • Will Barnet: A Timeless World (hand signed, dated and warmly inscribed)
    By Will Barnet
    Located in New York, NY
    Will Barnet: A Timeless World (hand signed, dated and warmly inscribed), 2000 Softback monograph with stiff wraps (hand signed, dated and warmly inscribed) Hand signed, dated and warmly inscribed to Margo by Will Barnet on the half title page 12 × 9 × 1/2 inches We believe the colleague Margo refers to renowned African American artist Margo Humphrey, who also worked at the Rutgers Center for Innovative Printmaking with Will Barnet. The full inscription reads: Sep 21 2000 To my colleague -Margo- with appreciation and affection Will Barnet Book information: Published by the Montclair Art Museum, New Jersey and Distributed by Rutgers University Press English; Paperback; 124 pages containing 43 color and 20 black-and-white illustrations Publisher's blurb: Painter and printmaker Will Barnet has actively participated in the New York art world for nearly 70 years. A leading figure in the Indian Space painting movement of the late 1940s, Barnet stressed the spatial structures of Northwest Coast Indian art. Throughout the 1950s and into the 1960s, he made a series of hardedged, totemic abstractions marked by their "all-positive" space, which he described as austere, classical expressions of Indian culture. He then moved on to new art forms in the 1960s and 1970s, creating a series of family and art world portraits that achieved a remarkable balance between the formal demands of abstraction and the humanist aspects of representation. Will Barnet: A Timeless World is the first substantial publications to unify Barnet's prodigious output. Art historian Gail Stavitsky provides an overview of this artist's entire career. Twig Johnson, the museum's curator of Native American Art, discusses the relationship of Barnet's work to this important indigenous artistic tradition. Jessica Nicoll, chief curator at the Portland Museum of Art, explores the profound impact of New England upon Barnet and his work. Many of Barnet's works are beautifully reproduced in this catalog, containing 43 color and 20 black-and-white illustrations. More about Will Barnet: Will Barnet was born in Beverly, Massachusetts in 1911. He has taught and exhibited widely over his more than seventy-five year career. His works are in the collection of virtually every American museum, including locally The Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Whitney Museum of American. He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In fall 2011 the National Academy Museum will present a retrospective exhibition being organized by Bruce Weber. Barnet is represented exclusively by Alexandre Gallery...

  • Monograph: Philip Glass Words Without Music (book hand signed by Philip Glass)
    Located in New York, NY
    Philip Glass Words Without Music (hand signed by Philip Glass), 2015 Hardback monograph with dust jacket (hand signed by Philip Glass) Hand signed by Philip Glass on the half title page 9 1/2 × 6 1/2 × 1 1/4 inches Hand signed by Philip Glass on the half title page. Makes an excellent gift! Book information: Publisher: Liveright Publishing Company, 2015 English; Hardcover; 432 pages; 32 pages of photographs Publisher's blurb: The long-awaited memoir by “the most prolific and popular of all contemporary composers” (New York Times). A world-renowned composer of symphonies, operas, and film scores, Philip Glass has, almost single-handedly, crafted the dominant sound of late-twentieth-century classical music. Yet here in Words Without Music, he creates an entirely new and unexpected voice, that of a born storyteller and an acutely insightful chronicler, whose behind-the-scenes recollections allow readers to experience those moments of creative fusion when life so magically merged with art. "If you go to New York City to study music, you'll end up like your uncle Henry," Glass's mother warned her incautious and curious nineteen-year-old son. It was the early summer of 1956, and Ida Glass was concerned that her precocious Philip, already a graduate of the University of Chicago, would end up an itinerant musician, playing in vaudeville houses and dance halls all over the country, just like his cigar-smoking, bantamweight uncle. One could hardly blame Mrs. Glass for worrying that her teenage son would end up as a musical vagabond after initially failing to get into Juilliard. Yet, the transformation of a young man from budding musical prodigy to world-renowned composer is the story of this commanding memoir. From his childhood in post–World War II Baltimore to his student days in Chicago, at Juilliard, and his first journey to Paris, where he studied under the formidable Nadia Boulanger, Glass movingly recalls his early mentors, while reconstructing the places that helped shape his artistic consciousness. From a life-changing trip to India, where he met with gurus and first learned of Gandhi’s Salt March, to the gritty streets of New York in the 1970s, where the composer returned, working day jobs as a furniture mover, cabbie, and an unlicensed plumber, Glass leads the life of a Parisian bohemian artist, only now transported to late-twentieth-century America. Yet even after Glass’s talent was first widely recognized with the sensational premiere of Einstein on the Beach...
