HUMANS OF NEW YORK by Brandon Stanton. To be released on October 15, 2013. 

Based on the blog with nearly a million loyal fans, a beautiful, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs capturing the spirit of a city.

In the summer of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton set out on an ambitious project: to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City.  Armed with his camera, he began crisscrossing the city, covering thousands of miles on foot, all in an attempt to capture New Yorkers and their stories.  The result of these efforts was a vibrant blog he called "Humans of New York," in which his photos were featured alongside quotes and anecdotes.

THE DIGITAL PRINT by Jeff Schewe. To be released on August 2, 2013.

Following on the release of The Digital Negative: Raw Image Processing in Lightroom, Camera Raw, and Photoshop, the definitive and bestselling guide to integrated raw image processing, renowned photographer, educator, and author Jeff Schewe presents a targeted book on digital printing in Lightroom and Photoshop, which teaches expert techniques for optimal output and fine-art reproduction using today’s technologies. The Digital Print picks up where first book leaves off, taking the already perfected images from The Digital Negative and preparing them for printing and other forms of output. Readers will learn techniques for fine-art printing in house or sending out to a photo lab, as well as preparing images for multimedia and mobile destinations and Print on Demand (POD) books. This is the second in a two-book series that pays homage to Ansel Adams’ seminal book series The Camera, The Negative, and The Print. Each book stands alone, but the combination of the two tells the entire story from camera to print. These books are not version-specific and, thus, evergreen.

CINDY SHERMAN: EARLY WORKS 1975-1977, edited by Gabriele Schor. Released in December 2012.

For more than 30 years now, Cindy Sherman has been enacting a gamut of female roles and identities. Contrary to popular belief, the famous Untitled Film Stills (1978-80) are not Sherman's earliest works, but rather those photographs she took as a student at State University College at Buffalo, between 1975 and 1977. Cindy Sherman: The Early Works, 1975-1977 gathers all of the artist's work from a decisive phase, in which Sherman was formulating her conceptions of gender and identity construction, gathering her toolkit of props (wigs, makeup, costumes) and becoming friends with artists such as Robert Longo (with whom she would establish the Hallwalls gallery in New York). With nearly 300 plates, including numerous previously unknown photographs, plus scholarly research by editor Gabriele Schor, this substantial volume adds a wealth of new information to our understanding of Sherman's oeuvre.
