California Job Case of type

Ultimate Art Books
Artbook Press is proud to announce an alliance with Arion Press in chronicling America’s leading private art collections. Each volume will combine offset and letterpress printing. Modern offset is unsurpassed in reproducing full color art, while letterpress tradition dating back to Gutenberg, impressing metal type into paper, renders text with a tactile beauty unknown to most present readers.

Arion Press – which has issued deluxe editions containing prints by artists including Jim Dine, Jasper Johns and Robert Motherwell – has been designated a cultural treasure by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Arion’s founder, Andrew Hoyem, is a gifted book designer and a leader in the more than 125-year tradition of San Francisco fine printing.

Artbook Press will work closely with Arion in creating limited editions of major collections which are a triumph of the bookmaker's art. Each book will include details regarding all reproduced artworks, in addition to personal commentary from collectors about their convictions and enthusiasms. Subsequent offset editions of the books may be prepared for bookstores and exhibition catalogs.

 

Mag Men
This book from Columbia University Press includes Audience, a magazine founded by Tim Hill and edited by Geoffrey Ward, Robert Strozier, and Rust Hills. "Audience’s list of contributors read like a who’s who of literary stars: Margaret Atwood, W. H. Auden, Jorge Luis Borges, William Faulkner, Jack Kerouac, Arthur Miller, Vladimir Nabokov and Philip Roth among them. Another remarkable element was its distinguished editorial board, which included Charles Eames, Philip Johnson and Marisol."

Hitchcock’s California
Published by Middlebrow Books, and including an introduction by prominent actor Bruce Dern, this oversized volume features Robert Jones’ eighty superb photographs of California locations for Alfred Hitchcock films. The Birds, Family Plot, Psycho, Shadow of a Doubt, and Vertigo were set principally in California, while twelve other movies included California locations: Dial "M" for Murder, Foreign Correspondent, Marnie, North by Northwest, Notorious, Rebecca, Saboteur, Spellbound, Suspicion, Topaz, Torn Curtain, and Under Capricorn.

A highlight of the book is a conversation between Jones and bestselling Hitchcock expert, Dan Auiler. Auiler comments, "Hitchcock was not really known as a location director…but these photographs are instantly recognizable and timeless." So are seventeen memorable images from photographer Aimee Sinclair, representing key scenes and "MacGuffins" Hitchcock used in his films to move the plot forward.

Readers will experience long-past memories anew – from James Stewart rescuing Kim Novak from San Francisco Bay in Vertigo, to Cary Grant being attacked by a crop duster on a lonely country road in North by Northwest – as we celebrate the unparalleled artistic gifts of Alfred Hitchcock.
