California Designing Freedom by Justin McGuirk & Brendan McGetrick

This fascinating and beautiful book examines The Golden State’s enormous impact on contemporary design, from the counterculture of the 1960s to the tech culture of Silicon Valley. California Designing Freedom looks at everything from The Whole Earth Catalog to Apple, Black Panther Party posters to Tesla Motors, noting the significance role that collaboration, community, self-expression, and activism—characteristics often attributed to the culture of California—have had on design.

Vincent van Gogh: The Lost Arles Sketchbook

A previously unknown sketchbook of drawings by Vincent van Gogh, created during his time in Arles, was recently discovered and will be published in this highly anticipated book. During the short time van Gogh lived in Arles (1888–1889), he was incredibly prolific and created such masterpieces as “The Starry Night” and “The Sunflowers.” Does his sketchbook include working drawings of these famous paintings or altogether unseen images? We won’t know until this closely guarded book is released in November.

It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War by Lynsey Addario

“A remarkable journalistic achievement from a Pulitzer Prize and MacArthur Fellowship winner that crystalizes the last 10 years of global war and strife while candidly portraying the intimate life of a female photojournalist. Told with unflinching candor, the award-winning photographer brings an incredible sense of humanity to all the battlefields of her life. Especially affecting is the way in which Addario conveys the role of gender and how being a woman has impacted every aspect of her personal and professional lives. Whether dealing with ultrareligious zealots or overly demanding editors, being a woman with a camera has never been an easy task. A brutally real and unrelentingly raw memoir that is as inspiring as it is horrific.” —Kirkus, starred review

Mad Enchantment by Ross King

When an artist becomes so famous as to be ubiquitous it can make their work seem safe, apolitical, and even boring. Years of seeing Claude Monet’s water lilies on countless mugs, cutting boards and other tchotchkes has had this effect. This book opens up the completely devastating, radical and gorgeous life of Monet—a man who painted through blindness and depression, and who would not allow a single flower at his funeral.  —Molly
