“Claudia Schiffer”

Now you can bring home one of the greatest Supermodels in the world—at least in paper form. Curated by Schiffer herself, this beautiful tome is perfect for fashionphiles as well as photography fans—thanks to contributions from the world’s greatest lensmen, including Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort, Steven Klein, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Herb Ritts, Francesco Scavullo, Mario Testino and Ellen von Unwerth who also wrote the book’s foreword.

“Rafael de Cárdenas/Architecture at Large”

The first monograph on interior designer Rafael de Cárdenas, which was released this fall, is a celebration of one of the great contemporary artists working in architecture and design today. With projects that include Baccarat’s flagship store in New York, private residences for the fashion set, and retail spaces in London, Paris, St. Petersburg and more, this is a visual feast—and a fascinating read with text contributions from PIN-UP magazine founder Felix Burrichter and writer John Miller.

“Robert Rauschenberg: Thirty-four illustrations for Dante’s Inferno”

Robert Rauschenberg created a series of haunting watercolor illustrations from 1950-60, each depicting the various regions of hell. MoMA has released a remarkable limited edition of the drawings in a new, clothbound volume aptly titled “Robert Rauschenberg: Thirty-Four Illustrations for Dante’s Inferno.” Limited to 500 copies, each clamshell box includes a trade edition of the Italian poet’s book, along with Rauschenberg’s poignant drawings, each reproduced at their true size on individual sheets.

“Studio KO”

Founded by French architects Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty and famous for its Minimalist approach, Studio KO is behind some of the most dazzling interiors in New York, Paris and London—as well as the new Yves Saint Laurent museum in Marrakech, seen here. In October, Rizzoli released the first monograph featuring many of Fournier and Marty’s built projects, each conjured into existence with a timeless integrity. (Rizzoli)


“Tria Giovan: The Cuba Archive”

When New York-based photographer Tria Giovan first traveled to Cuba in 1990, she discovered a people with an indomitable spirit. Entranced by them, and the complexities of their day-to-day lives, Giovan returned to the island a dozen times over the next six years, shooting more than 25,000 images. Her new book “The Cuba Archives: Photography from 1990’s Cuba,” is poised to give the public an affecting glimpse of a time that highlighted the resiliency, and flair, of the Cuban people. (Damiani)
