In 1966, German artist Gerhard Richter (born 1932) embarked on a series of paintings: uniform grids of colored rectangles or squares in a chart configuration against a white background, inspired by industrially produced paint chips. With the exception of only one other painting, this marked the artist's first use of color and a turning point in his career.
This comprehensive catalogue is the first publication dedicated to the original Colour Charts, both those created in 1966 and those made in the '70s after a five-year hiatus. Featuring new essays by Dietmar Elger, head of the Gerhard Richter Archive; Hubertus Butin, curator and author of several key texts on Richter; and Jaleh Mansoor, professor at the University of British Columbia, whose research concentrates on modern abstraction and its socioeconomic implications, this is a handsome tribute to one of Richter's most groundbreaking bodies of work.

How did the Japanese see themselves from 1931 to 1972? Even more importantly, how did the Japanese
want the rest of the world to see them during those four pivotal decades? This controversial, unprecedented
book, selected from a massive private collection of magazines and newspapers, takes an in-depth look
at the information, news, photos and advertisements used in Japanese propaganda books, illustrating
the radical sociopolitical evolution of the nation and culture throughout that period of the 20th century.
Propaganda is defined here as publications promoting political, military and cultural ideas, ranging
from national magazines such as Nippon and Front (with a feature on Japan s crack airborne paratroop
units ) to corporate documents that include a beautifully designed brochure on the facilities for the 1964
Tokyo Olympic Games. The Japanese have been notably slow to acknowledge the excesses and atrocities
of the militaristic regime that led the nation into World War II; this elegantly designed book combats that
resistance and opens a door to show what the government and corporate communicators were feeding to
the public at the time. It also reveals the roots of Japan s unique modern design aesthetic in the work of
some of the nation s finest graphic artists.

Iconic Japanese graphic designers and photograpers featured include Takashi Kono, Fumio Yamana,
Yusaku Kamekura, Goro Kumada, Shihachi Fujimoto and Hiromu Hara in graphic design and Ihei Kimura,
Yonosuke Natori Yoshio Watanabe, Ken Domon and Hiroshi Hamaya in photography.

In Transition Menu, the self-professed "ex-designer" Martí Guixé (born 1964) demonstrates how even food can be a design item. In this publication, Guixé presents his theories on food design by chronicling the fictional character, Mar López, who, over the course of her career, transitions from chef and restaurant owner to food designer. The book showcases a variety of elements of the fictional food designer including her CV, kitchen concepts and menu design, with color photographs of each of the food items on López’s menu. Guixé describes how each component transcends a conventional approach to food to become a designer item. Each dish is presented in conjunction with a short essay that describes its modern look and functionality. Transition Menu expands upon Guixé’s research on food design and includes his personal theories, thoughts and notes regarding the subject, by which he seeks to challenge and reappraise the parameters of conventional culinary habits.
