Book Marks: An Artist's Card Catalog, Notes from the Library of My Mind

Barbara Page

"I found Book Marks unbelievably interesting. Barbara Page tells her story, which is also the story of thousands of women who grew up in the 40s, 50s and 60s, as first a girl and then a young woman trying to make sense of life and family and nature and art in her quest for knowledge. Many of us will talk a lot about this book. It's a stunning achievement, and an utter delight."

-Gay Daly, author of Miss Havilland and Pre-Raphaelites in Love

-Gay Daly, author of Miss Havilland and Pre-Raphaelites in Love

One artist's whimsical and inspiring way to keep track of the books she has read, Book Marks is a visual journey through a lifetime of reading and remembering that features 434 richly illustrated artworks created on old library checkout cards. These compelling artworks resonate and inspire, as will Page's story. Like many, the artist discovers strength in the words of authors many of us know and love, and, through reading, she gains knowledge that feeds her personal growth and scientific interest in the world around her. As Page's life is disrupted by tragedies-one husband's mental illness and another's decline into dementia-she forges forward, finding new focus and reinventing her life. This alluring blend of art book and autobiography will capture the imagination.

Hardcover, cloth spine, 224 pages, 408 color plates, 57 illustrations, 7 3/4 x 11 3/4 x 1 1/8 inches, with two bound bookmark ribbons.

Kansas City Houses 1885-1938

Michael C. Kathrens
New photography by Bruce Mathews
Foreword by Steve Noll

Kansas City Houses 1885-1938 reveals the significant but little-known architectural treasures built during the city's boom years.

Architectural historian Michael C. Kathrens thoroughly documents forty superb houses that reflect the outsized fortunes of the influential Kansas Citizens who built them, including newspaper publisher William Rockhill Nelson, who helped establish the Nelson-Atkins Museum. The first survey of the rich architectural heritage of this major Midwestern hub, which straddles the state line between Kansas and Missouri, the book spotlights the work of highly accomplished architects, many of whom were based in Kansas City and have long been overshadowed by their high-profile East Coast counterparts; among them are Henry F. Hoit, Edward W. Tanner, Louis S. Curtiss, and Mary Rockwell Hook, one of the first women to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Kathrens's authoritative yet accessible text is complemented throughout by drawings, floor plans, archival images, and newly commissioned photographs.

Hardcover, 400 pages, 485 photos, including 192 in color and 75 floor plans, 9.25 x 12.25 inches

Published in association with Minnesota Prairie Wind Foundation

PATTERN BOOK OF LIGHTING

Thomas P. Fuchs
Book in progress

This much-needed volume records a comprehensive selection of classic models of lighting, from traditional to contemporary.
Soon to be the essential sourcebook for interior designers and architects, this book will also be an inspiration for lighting designers.

Author Thomas Fuchs is a well-regarded lighting designer who works most often with artisans in Murano to execute his designs. Drawn to the Murano artisans whose long manufacturing history goes all the way back to the 1600s, the designer likes to use glass because "the medium offers the design additional layers... texture, color, luminosity." Fuchs adds "glass is magic... one day it is sand, pigment and ash... and the next day it is an object."
