Andy Warhol: Seven Illustrated Books 1952-1959 

In 1950’s New York, before he became one of the most famous names of the 20th century,
Andy Warhol was a skilled and successful commercial artist.
During this time, as part of his strategy to woo and cultivate clients and forge friendships,
he created seven handmade promotional books for valued contacts,
featuring his own unique drawings and quirky texts and revealing his fondness
for among other subjects cats, food, myths, shoes, beautiful boys, and gorgeous girls.
Decades later, with originals now changing hands for thousands of dollars at auction,
Taschen presents an immaculate boxed series of these seven books,
replicating Warhol’s originals as closely as possible down to the format,
dimensions, and paper stock.

Now available at Galleria Carla Sozzani Bookshop and online

Mozzarella in Carrozza, Artist Recipes by Silvia Macchetto
book presentation yesterday evening with an introduction by Alberto Saibene,
the unsystematic critic, who shared with us the double key to enter the world of art,
where the recipes become almost a confession of the personality of the artists,
of their relationship with food, as well as an intimate way of accessing their art.
Thanks to Stefano Arienti and his hen recipe,
who spoke about a world with a lost attitude towards animals,
Liliana Di Lillo, who traced a recipe colored by her grandmother memories and
De Chirico paintings, and last but not least thanks to Vedovamazzei
(alias of the two Italian artists: Stella Scala and Simeone Crispino),
who made a live reading from Winston Churchill’s diary.

Ideas from Massimo Osti,
published by Corraini
now available at Galleria Carla Sozzani Bookshop.

A look at one of the most influential and secretly revered names in Italian fashion history.
The book tells the story of the so-called “godfather of Sportswear”,
the man responsible for the brands Stone Island, C.P. Company and Left Hand 
and inventor of the industry-shifting garment dyeing technique,
Raso Gommato and numerous other fabrics still in use today, the designer who worked from Bologna all his life,
inspired as much by the 35000 piece historical garment archive
he assembled in his studio as the unique artistic
and political ferment of the city throughout the ’70s, ’80s.

It was a rare privilege listening to Jean-Charles de Castelbajac
while introducing the re-edition of the medieval manuscript
“The Grand Armorial équestre de la Toison d’Or”
recently published with the great art historian Michel Pastoureau for the
BnF, Éditions de la Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Editions du Seuil.
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac unveiled the antique meaning of the colors in araldics
and their clear relation to Walt Disney’s comics, to the urban billboards and to fashion.
An extraordinary goldmine of sources and inspirations.
