Let us go then, you and I...

More new things, and more new titles, and more a sense that recovery, and strength, and purpose shall be the lead characters of this spring. 

We are a shop but we are also, in a particular, metaphoric way, straddling the bow of a small boat, out in the open public. We get a first sense of how people feel about this land and this time. We get a first view of doubts or hopes, a first sense of optimism. we catch a small flicker of our world. To our view, it is a time of true repair and true promise.

NAPOLI : Super Modern
Edited by LAN, Jalon and Napolitano, 2021, Zurich, 262pp. cloth, $50.

A fine study of Naples, from the research forces of LAN, who had presented the brilliant review of Paris urban plan and Hausmann three years ago. Now, Napoli, the Italian character, the city of port and labor, of noise and sound and bustle.this a study of its squares and buildings, of its mad, operatic character.

They create an atlas of Naples, eighteen significant buildings 1930-1960, and extrapolate to make sense and pattern and order. The Mediterranean of Naples, crossing the bold and brassy modernism of new Napoli, make a wonderful and mad urban opera. The French photographer Cyrille Weiner adds 50 color photos of Naples, now, and it all begins to make some sense. The lovely book concludes with exceptional new illustrations, in beautiful black line drawings, detailing the very architecture of this lavish seaport.
