William Eggleston — Chromes

Chromes / William Eggleston & Steidl, 2011

Oh. My. Goodness.

This has flown right to the top of my wish list. An absolutely stunning publication by legendary publishers Steidl – these 3 cloth-covered hardbacks reveal some of Eggleston’s most awe-inspiring shots of the USA from the 60s and 70s.

Don’t waste your time here – a full gallery and write-up is on the Wallpaper* site.

I witnessed the thing up-close in the office last week, and rest assured, the quality of Steidl’s printing and finishing is unbelievable. I want need a copy.

Bicycle Travel Journal / Nigel Peake, 2011

I recently acquired a copy of this new book, from Magma and Laurence King.

Can’t seem to find many pics on the web, but check out Analogue Books and Bike Zone, or just go out and buy a copy.

In The Wilds / Nigel Peake, 2011

I am hugely excited about this, the new release from Nigel Peake. His beautiful, muted, intricate but somehow ramshackle drawings of country scenes make him one of my favourite illustrators working today.
