The Jochem Hendricks book that www.ftn-books.com has for sale is something special. Some reasons. First it feels and looks like an artist book, secondly it is in pristine condition and third….it contains the 33 raisor sharp LOGOS and WOLRD IMAGES Hendricks designed in 1985. The exhibition with these designs was held in 1992 in Frankfurt and curated by Jean-Christophe Ammann, making this an important exhibition. I personally did not visit this one , but seeing and leafing the book i wish i had.

Agnes Martin and Thomas Ammann

Agnes Martin has become one of the greats in Modern Art from the last Fifty years. In 1977 the Stedelijk Museum published an excellent catalogue in which the quality of painting was obvious. Beautiful and impressive design by Wim Crouwel and one that is in worldwide demand because of its design and subject. Since then many catalogues were published on Martin but 2 stand out. The first is the one which was published for the Agnes Martin exhibition in the Josef Albers Museum / Quadrat Bottrop. The catalogue was published in such an excellent way that i had to have one myself for my own collection. The poster is even more special because it is an original silkscreen print in such delicate colour scheme that it reflects in the best way the quality of the work by Agnes Martin. The final book i would like to tell about is the Thomas Ammann  Fine Art catalogue they published in 2008. Large sized book with excellent printing and impressive paintings by Martin. Buy these three titles at www.ftn-books.com and  do not forget to take a look at the impressive poster made for the Quadrat exhibition when i will list this later this month at www.ftn-books.com.
