Collectible Art & Photography Books

Acme Labs
The list author says: "Collectible and or intriguing books by some of the most interesting contemporary photographers and artists. Focusing primarily (but not necessarily) on books that will hopefully appreciate in value and artists that I find particularly inspiring. But no guarantees about collectibility, buy what you like."
Dorps: The Small Towns of South Africa
Dorps: The Small Towns of South Africa
"Long out of print and rare early book by Roger Ballen sees a limited second edition."
Alber Elbaz: Lanvin
Alber Elbaz: Lanvin
"Another gem from Steidl. One of the most beautiful books I've ever seen. Contemporary and classic design at once. Of course very expensive but this is a high end production."
Keizo Kitajima: Photo Express Tokyo
Keizo Kitajima: Photo Express Tokyo
"Steidl is re-releasing this series of vintage japanese photobooks. Sure to be a hit."
Richard Misrach: Golden Gate
Richard Misrach: Golden Gate
"A new large format 16x20 edition of golden gate. This is same size and hopefully production as On The Beach (which btw retailed at $85, this retails at $125 - wow, what a difference a few years makes...) Still might be worth checking this book out at amazon's discounted prices."
Oscar Tuazon: Die
Oscar Tuazon: Die
"I don't know much about this book yet, but an artist to watch, in the 2012 Biennial and getting a lot of attention around the world."
Tauba Auerbach: Folds
Tauba Auerbach: Folds

Ryan McGinley: Whistle for the Wind
Ryan McGinley: Whistle for the Wind
"Yet another Mcginley catalogue for preorder. Worth keeping an eye on this."
You and I

"Book is finally out. Very nice production with a mix of older and newer color photos but far from a complete catalogue. Pretty big run on this book but eventually I'm sure copies will start to sell for a premium."
Richard Prince: T-Shirt Paintings
Richard Prince: T-Shirt Paintings
"Great little catalogue for Prince's t-shirt show. A must buy for me nd especially if you can get it for $25. Probably won't last long, already on delayed order from Amazon so check other retailers to see if anyone else has it in stock."
Teenage Kissers
Teenage Kissers
"Must have for me. Great price, limited edition of 1000 and should come with a signed poster. Great little book modeled after his now very collectible teenage smokers book."
Wade Guyton: Black Paintings
Wade Guyton: Black Paintings
"cool concept here, book was designed, then run through a copier in ways to mimic his "painting" style. So the book design is now based on the photocopies. Or so I've heard."
Works

"Amazon got a few more of these in stock somehow. Pricey but signed and with 10 essential books in a slipcase so worth it."
For Now
For Now
"New book by Eggleston produced in a limited first edition run of 3000. I'm pretty sure these are now second printings that amzn has in stock."
Before Color
Before Color
"Another new book on Eggleston from Steidl this time. Seems to be out of stock at most places already. Hopefully more copies coming."
Lee Friedlander: America by Car
Lee Friedlander: America by Car
"This book now appears to be back ordered on every major website. I;m just guessing but because of that may be going out of print?  So pick one up soon while you can still get a new copy for $40. It's very well printed, well received series of photos (even though the concept risked being gimicky) it worked out really great. Highly recommend."
Marcel Dzama: The Infidels
Marcel Dzama: The Infidels
"Marcel Dzama's work just keeps getting better and better.  Very attractive cover. Nice good sized hardcover with embossed image on cover from his latest exhibition at Sies + Hoeke in Dusseldorf. The last Dzama book they released is hard to find and pricey. (Almost sold out now)"
Studio Job: The Book of Job
Studio Job: The Book of Job
"Hot looking book from these European furniture and object designers. Book is designed in the style of an antique leather bound style bible, metallic spot colors used inside. Overall looks amazing. PLUS each copy appears to have a certificate on the inside cover signed by the Job Smeets and his partner."
Juergen Teller: Marc Jacobs Advertising 1998-2009 (v. 1)
Juergen Teller: Marc Jacobs Advertising 1998-2009 (v. 1)
"Looks like more of these are to hit the shelves. Not sure how many to expect and if it's a reprint or just the end of the print run finally showing up. But place an order now if you missed out the first time. Only 75.60 at the moment."
Tauba Auerbach: Chaos
Tauba Auerbach: Chaos
"Great hardbound catalog of recent works by this 2010 Whitney Biennial artist. This is published by soon to be defunct Deitch, so a reprint would be unlikely and the edition size of this book will probably be on the small size."
Tauba Auerbach: How To Spell the Alphabet
Tauba Auerbach: How To Spell the Alphabet
"Tauba's first major monograph featuring her sought after typographic works. This was out of print but a few copies are available again (probably due to Deitch emptying their inventory). Buy this now! These won't last with Tauba being selected for the Whitney Biennial."
Hedi Slimane: Rock Diary
Hedi Slimane: Rock Diary
"Slimane's last book. Very nice boxed collection of three paperbacks. Starting to be come hard to find and pricey. If you can find cheap snap it up."
Hedi Slimane: Anthology of a Decade 2000-2010
Hedi Slimane: Anthology of a Decade 2000-2010
"Well, amazon has it in stock finally. But unfortunately not discounted. These have been pretty hard to get a hold of despite the high price. If you're a big Slimane fan keep an eye on it."
Mamma Andersson & Jockum Nordström: Who Is Sleeping on My Pillow
Mamma Andersson & Jockum Nordström: Who Is Sleeping on My Pillow
"Great quality book on two underrated stars. Jockum and Mamma have 1 or 2 previously published books and if you can find them they will be extremely expensive ($400 and up.) So at $48 this is book offers great value and may well become just as collectible as the earlier books. Get your preorders in."

">Amazon is discounting this book now for only $13! Only a few copies left! Really well worth it, book has great production value< If you like Jonathan Meese, Tal R, Peter Doig, New Lipezig school, you will probably enjoy this book.

Robert Frank: Portfolio

Dash Snow: Polaroids
Dash Snow: Polaroids
"The unfortunate news of artist Dash Snow means there has been a serious run on all of his books, most of which have dried way up. You should place a preorder for this book now and cross your fingers that it gets filled. Retail price somehow went from $75-95. Hope you got your orders in already."

"This is really the nicest, best and first proper monograph by the artist. In years to come I think this will easily be a $500+ book.

So if you're picky about which edition you're getting, check or ask."
