Books I think about while at the BEA Part 1

i think the title says it all: "Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon" The Greatest Movie Never Made." This is something so fantastic, that I want to stay alive at least till this book comes out this fall. This is the ultimate obsessive book on Kubrick with respect to his research and thoughts on a film he never made. Documentation, the script, his notes, landscape photos, costumes, you name it and it's all in this incredible book. I saw parts of it at the Taschen office, and it's superb. Really superb.

Emilio Pucci, the out there designer of designers in a beautiful designed format. Italian go-go with the the brightest colors on this planet. Beautiful, beautiful, and beautiful.

A limited edition of Dennis Hopper's photographs. I saw a version of this at the Taschen Soho office, and its amazing.

Alex Steinweiss is the god-like genius with respect to album covers. My mouth was watering, and it's a limited edition of 1,500 copies.

My vote is for Pucci. It will make a terrific hostess gift and coffee table book. Also, Steinweiss, Inventor of the Modern Album Cover for all of my radio and music friends. I'll be buying both of them.

Those two books are really good! Pucci is a really interesting guy. I didn't know he was a fascist. And the album covers of steinweiss are really classic and classy.
