Rosson Crow: The Happiest People on Earth

Rosson Crow’s new paintings depict the search for off-the-grid freedom in the American West. Building from her explorations of the psychology of nationalism and conspiracy in American history, Crow has moved away from the surreal interiors she’s known for to a new terrain and a new timeframe: desert landscapes set in a future overwhelmed by the refuse of the paranoid present. Littered among giant, brightly hued cacti, objects from the worlds of fringe cults and right wing conspiracy grapple for our attention. Without depicting any people associated with these groups, they are felt as a presence through what they’ve left behind.

As part of an exhibition in Los Angeles winter 2018, this dynamic soft-cover book has 22 uncoated pages along with a fold-out poster featuring Crow’s finest work.

Bank of America Art Conservation Project

Since 2010 Bank of America has been graciously providing grants to more than a hundred museums for the conservation of more than 120 projects in thirty countries on six continents. The National Museum of African American History & Culture was one of the recipients of the Bank of America Grants. This museum is the 19th museum of the Smithsonian Institution and the only museum that is dedicated to documenting African American history and culture. Another recipient, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid was awarded a grant to restore Pablo Ruiz Picasso’s Woman in Blue. This specific restoration removed a layer of varnish that allowed Picasso’s first brush strokes to be more visible. These museums work to conserve historically and culturally significant works of art. Restoration can include multiple processes, including consolidation, removing varnish, cleaning the piece to remove dust and particles, relining, re-stretching, mounting and of course handling the work of art in an exceptionally careful manner. Types of art that were restored under the Bank of America grants include but are not limited to: paintings, murals, sculptures, portraits, marble figures, canvas works, textiles and photographs. The works of art included in this book tell significant and important stories, ones that should not and cannot be left untold.

This stunning second edition, custom book is perfectly bound and has hundreds of pages printed on matte paper which include beautiful and vibrant photography that captures the art conservation process at its best. This fine art, hard covered book has a foil stamp on the front and back. The book includes several gatefolds which help to showcase the vast works of art.

Xerophile: Cactus Photographs from Expeditions of the Obsessed

Xerophile: Cactus Photographs from Expeditions of the Obsessed is a self-published, custom book with 352 satin pages filled with unique cactus photography from all over the globe. The textured softcover has an aqueous gloss on linen stock mounted to add thickness and character.

This is the first book of its kind. A selection of over five hundred photographs of arguably the rarest and most spectacular plants on earth, photographed in their natural habitats over the past 80 years by a global cadre of obsessed cactus aficionados made up of both the amateur and the professional—from Ph.D. botanist to banker, art teacher to cancer researcher.

Compiled by the proprietors of the Cactus Store in Los Angeles—Xerophile is not a field guide or taxonomy. Neither is it a book of photography in the traditional sense. Rather, it mines the space between science and art.

Fueled by whispers of ancient plants on forgotten hilltops in Brazil, legends of fields of living fossils deep in the arid deserts of Chile, these explorers’ relentless drive to find and document succulent plants in some of the most remote landscapes earth has created.
