This is the first volume in a series of books by Slovak artist Petra Feriancová involving the contemplation of associations between images drawn from the author’s substantial archive. In this volume they navigate between ideas of reproduction and maternity in the animal and plant kingdoms, as well as in our own society. It is possible to observe these images individually, or sequentially, running along a horizontal axis.

Yasutaka Kojima’s Coming back compiles a series of photographs of cityscapes in Tokyo since 2008. Kojima’s beautiful selection of photographs, which shift effortlessly between monochrome and colour, and past and present, observe cities existing in a time during which our identity and subjectively has been somewhat lost in the urban environment, evoking a sense of evanescence. This beautiful publication arrives courtesy of the amazing Superlabo (Tokyo).

PUD III is the last book in a trilogy conceived and photographed by Jason Nocito, designed by Camilla Venturini of Ordinary Books and published by Dashwood.   Originally released at the LAABF in January 2014 PUD(I) consisted of a series of sixteen photographs of New York City street debris and puddles interspersed with images from a road trip across the US all shot on an 8×10 view camera recording extremely high detail.    The final book produced in an identical trim size and cover design, in alternate colors, uses the debris and puddles as its’ main subject once again but this time juxtaposed with studio and darkroom images. Asking more questions than are being resolved; the PUD series has evolved as an exercise in conceptualizing, editing and design – the practice of bookmaking itself. – See more at: http://www.dashwoodbooks.com/pages/books/15498/jason-nocito/pud-iii#sthash.SRogeVRp.dpuf

“For three years (2011-13), we have collected press clippings. The ‘Arab Spring’ at its peak; the arrival of the Troika (IMF, ECB, EU) in Greece, Portugal and Ireland; the earthquake and nuclear disaster in Japan; and a bit everywhere in Europe and the USA, citizen movements against austerity policies in favour of the bailout of the financial system. Far from these world events, yet affected by them, a family, ours, a photo album.
Gustavo is 5, 6, 7 years old. He learns to read and write. His friend Gaspar is 9, 10, 11. His body changes from child to small adult. The disease comes back, goes away and comes back anew, always in the summer, but surrounded by friends. ‘Banks are like cancer’ says a placard brandished during an “Occupy” protest movement in New York. A brutal metaphor spreading in someone’s body. We hesitate between staying in Portugal and trying our luck in France. As long as one of us still has a job, we stay.
This book is a facsimile of a photo album dedicated to our son and his friend, meant to be opened in 2030. It offers a journey across time, from an uncertain future to a past (our present) where our family pictures collide with those we get from newspapers. It’s a book to read, more than leaf through.” Patrícia Almeida and David-Alexandre Guéniot
