Offering a rare glimpse into an artist’s studio, Polka Dots visually explores both the process and the finished work of one of today’s leading contemporary artists.

New Release<br>Donald Judd: Cor-ten

New Release
Donald Judd: Cor-ten

Donald Judd: Cor-ten represents the first-ever focused examination of Judd’s works in Cor-ten steel, which he began to produce in earnest in 1989 and would continue to elaborate on until his death in 1994. This volume is produced on the occasion of the 2015 exhibition at David Zwirner, New York and includes scholarship by art historian Courtney Fiske that contextualizes these specific works within Judd’s oeuvre.

Forthcoming
Richard Serra: Forged Steel

Available for pre-order. Shipping October 2016

Published on the occasion of Serra’s 2015 exhibition Equal at David Zwirner, New York, this catalogue is the first in-depth overview of the artist’s works in forged steel. Widely regarded as one of the most influential American artists working today, Richard Serra is known in particular for his large steel sculptural forms, which deal primarily with investigations of weight, balance, density, and scale, as well as their effect on the viewer and his/her sense of space. Serra’s relentless pursuit of these questions over the course of his celebrated career has deepened our understanding of the effects of sculpture on space and perception, and broadened the scope of what we allow the genre to address.

New Release<br>Oscar Murillo: Frequencies

New Release
Oscar Murillo: Frequencies

In 2013, Murillo began sending squares of raw canvas to selected schools in over twenty countries around the world, with the sole requirement that they be affixed to desks and illustrated by students. The canvases would stay there for a year and then be re-collected by the artist. Within weeks of their arrival, children from places as disparate as China and Slovenia began to draw, paint, write, and communicate, creating documents of their social and educational experiences. Frequencies catalogues the first year of Murillo's exploration, with intimate photographs of the participants and the project's myriad steps—the arrival of canvases to different schools, the process of wrapping desks, the students at work, and the final products.

William Eggleston: The Democratic Forest, Selected Works

Published on the occasion of David Zwirner’s New York exhibition of selections from The Democratic Forest in the fall of 2016, this new catalogue highlights over sixty exceptional images from Eggleston’s epic project. His photography is “democratic” in its resistance to hierarchy where, as noted by the artist, “no particular subject is more or less important than another.”

Featuring original scholarship by Alexander Nemerov, this notable presentation of The Democratic Forest provides historical context for a monumental body of work, while offering newcomers a foothold in Eggleston’s photographic practice.

New Release<br>William Eggleston: Portraits

New Release
William Eggleston: Portraits

Many of Eggleston’s poetic photographs portray life in his home state of Tennessee, and the people he encountered there. Eggleston frequented the 1970s Memphis club scene, where he met, befriended, and photographed musicians such as fellow Southerners Alex Chilton and Ike Turner. He also photographed celebrities including Dennis Hopper, Walter Hopps, and Eudora Welty, and became a fixture of Andy Warhol’s Factory scene, dating the Warhol protégé Viva. Over the past half century, he has created a powerful and enduring body of work featuring friends and family, musicians, artists, and strangers. In addition to the lavish reproductions of Eggleston’s portraits, this volume includes an essay and chronology, plus an interview with Eggleston and his close family members that gives new insights into his images and artistic process.

Art & Beauty Magazine: Drawings by R. Crumb (limited edition)

Art & Beauty Magazine is also available as a slipcased edition of 400 copies with a bookplate signed and numbered by the artist. One of America’s most celebrated cartoonists, Robert Crumb helped define cartoon and punk subcultures of the 1960s and 1970s with comic strips like Fritz the Cat, Mr. Natural, and Keep on Truckin’. The open sexuality of his work, paired with frequent self-deprecation and a free, almost stream-of-consciousness style, have made Crumb into a global voice and a renowned contemporary artist.

Published on the occasion of the 2015 eponymous exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, Corners, Barriers and Corridors takes as its point of departure the artist’s influential show, corners, barriers and corridors in fluorescent light from Dan Flavin, presented at the Saint Louis Art Museum in 1973. The catalogue brings questions of architecture to the fore, exploring how this particular body of light works function in space, occupying key positions in rooms that highlight how the rooms themselves are constructed.

Chardin and Rembrandt

Available for pre-order. Shipping October 2016

Long overlooked in Proust’s posthumously published writings, Chardin and Rembrandt, written when he was only twenty-four years old, not only reemphasizes the importance of visual art to his development, but contains the seeds of his later work. Published for the first time as a stand-alone volume and newly translated, this edition, part of the David Zwirner Books ekphrasis series, aims to introduce a wider audience to one of Proust’s most important and influential works in Western literature.

Forthcoming
Ramblings of a Wannabe Painter

Available for pre-order. Shipping October 2016

Paul Gauguin wrote “Racontars de Rapin” only months before he died in 1903, but the essay remained unpublished until 1951. Through discussions of numerous artists, both his contemporaries and predecessors, Gauguin unpacks what he viewed as the mistakes and misjudgments behind much of art criticism, revealing not only how wrong critics’ interpretations have been, but also what it would mean to approach art properly—to really look. As the inaugural publication in David Zwirner Books’s new ekphrasis reader series, Ramblings of a Wannabe Painter sets a perfect tone for the books to come.

Forthcoming<br>Promesse du Bonheur

Forthcoming
Promesse du Bonheur

Available for pre-order. Shipping November 2016

Beyond presenting new works, Promesse du Bonheur breaks ground for Michael Fried by combining eighty poems, a mix of lyric and prose poems, with thirty-three photographs, most of them made, all of them chosen by renowned American photographer James Welling. The photographs throughout often stand in oblique relation to the poems, and must be interpreted in their own right, as images and as complementary pieces of this mesmerizing whole. Promesse du Bonheur is a uniquely vivid and compelling volume, at once a collection of wide-ranging yet intimately related poems and a brilliant photobook, that aims to hold the reader/viewer in its spell from first page to last.
