Ever since he picked the graffiti name Shoe in 1979, Niels Meulman has been carving out his own path towards the international art world. Being a graffiti pioneer from Amsterdam, he worked with American counterparts such as Dondi White, Rammellzee and Keith Haring in the 1980s. He made the transition from the streets to fine art with a unique fusion of calligraphy and graffiti, which he named Calligraffiti. This soon became a worldwide phenomenon and now plays a significant role within Urban Contemporary Art. It also sparked the catchphrase 'A word is an image, writing is painting'. In recent years Niels Shoe Meulman moved towards a style he calls Abstract Vandalism. Influenced by the great painters of Abstract Expressionism, his work has been shown in count-less exhibitions all over the world and is included in the permanent collections of museums and private collections.`Shoe Is My Middle Name celebrates three decades of art by a legendary graffiti artist, painter, writer, designer and calligrapher. A striking book that offers an overview of his career, showcasing his evolution through a masterful mixture of paintings, murals, poetry, interviews, graphics and insights about his identity as an artist and art itself.

Art Deco Bookbindings
Author: Yves Peyra(c), H. George Fletcher
Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press
Before dust jackets wrapped every hardcover behind a shield of paper, a book's binding was its only advertisement, and the shelves of bibliophiles were lined with staid leather-bound tomes. Then came the Art Deco designs of Pierre Legrain and Rose Adler, who transformed bookbinding into a medium of playful and dazzling experimentation and craftsmanship. Their colorful, imaginative works, often made in exotic materials, are found only in a few prized collections and have rarely been available to the general public. now, this selection of more than sixty designs, colored-paper maquettes, and realized bindings are collected in one exquisite volume, with insightful texts introducing the work and discuss its revolutionary effect on modern design. Among the brilliant array of bindings are ones made especially for works by Colette, Paul Verlaine, Andre Gide, Guillaume Apollinaire, Stephane Mallarme, Michel Leiris, and Jean Giraudoux. Art Deco Bookbinding accompanies the exhibition of the same name at the New York Public Library's Humanities and Social Science Library beginning in February 2004.

When nomad artist and free spirit Dan Price began jotting down his musings in the form of whimsical drawings and inspired prose, he hardly could have imagined that his self-published journal-zine, the MOONLIGHT CHRONICLES, would earn him a cult following across the country. Now in its twentieth edition, the MOONLIGHT CHRONICLES has brought Dan's creed of "truth, beauty, and really big sabbaticals from the convention of life" to thousands across the countryWith such a following, Dan figured it was time to collect his offbeat observations into book form in hopes of inspiring other would-be journal writers to take pen, camera, and brush in hand. As Dan is fond of noting "Seems there's tons of empty journal books, but not too many on how to fill 'em up!" In HOW TO MAKE A JOURNAL, Dan answers the call, teaching readers how to tap into those pent-up creative juices and collect their life experiences on paper. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Everyone is searching for happiness, but they are looking in the wrong place—outside. Real happiness, bliss, can only be found by going inside. Commenting on the ancient wisdom of the Shiva Sutras, Osho shows how to avoid the outside traps of desire and attachment. If you can learn the knack of dis-identifying with the mind, you will find that bliss is hidden within all of everyday experience. Being human happens when you get out of the vicious circle called mind.
Explores the fundamental questions of human personality as shaped by sin, explaining God's plan for redemption and how an understanding of God's ways can serve as a spiritual road map.
