✨✧ Simon ReynoldsShock & Awe – Glam Rock & Its Legacy From Seventies To The Twenty First Century ... Book
Dey St, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Simon Reynolds has taken on many musical topics over the years – but he really outdoes himself here, in a massive examination of the rise of glam rock in the 70s – providing far more history and context than we ever would have imagined, and tracing its influence for decades after its initial moment! Usually, glam is treated like a flash in the pan – and most books use it as a footnote for its bigger proponents, like David Bowie or T Rex – but Reynolds really digs deep, and situates the musical movement in larger shifts in culture, fashion, and gender – really showing us how these mid-70s sounds opened doors and continued to provide freedom and focus for years to come. The softcover book is a massive 686 pages, with some black and white photos. Book

✨✧ Ian BourlandFaile – Works On Wood – Process, Painting, & Scultpture (hardcover) ... Book
Gestalten (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge art book done in conjunction with a special exhibit on the works of Faile at the Dallas Contemporary Museum – one that focuses on their re-use of images from pop culture, advertising, and other sources – served up here in a mix of paintings, sculpture, and a fair bit of street-based art too! The contents are almost like a 21st Century update on pop art – but through a generation that's also aware of the creations of Banksy, a generation of graffiti creators, and all the political power that juxtaposition can offer – especially when it's taken out of the museum, and offered up in formats that can circulate and interact with the world in terms of everyday life. In that sense, it might be strange that the work is collected in a museum monograph – but the book features hundreds of photos of different pieces, many in the public sphere, or even just outdoors – 314 pages, hardcover, oversize, and full color.
