Louis Vuitton city bags : a natural history by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is an unprecedented history of Louis Vuitton's women's bags, the most coveted line of accessories in women's fashion. At the heart of Louis Vuitton are its City Bags, a range of women's bags that dates back to the turn of the twentieth century. Featuring the trademark monograms of the house, the City Bag story began with the Steamer, a resort bag designed in 1901 to be packed inside a much larger steamer trunk. These bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. Profoundly influential, City Bags are now known to millions by their descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy) and are still evolving into more fantastical forms. Lavishly illustrated with new and archival photography, historical graphics, landmark editorials, and ad campaigns, the volume traces the history of these specific bag families, and examines the earliest specimens and today's most sought-after collectibles, including Vuitton's collaborations with Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama, and Rei Kawakubo and one-off projects by Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Andrée Putman, and of course, Marc Jacobs. Louis Vuitton: City Bags is an ambitious volume on the creation and cultivation of a cultural phenomenon."--Publisher's website

Manhattan suicide addict by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

4 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in French and Japanese and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yayoi Kusama, on la savait excentrique, on la découvre scandaleuse, incorrecte, embarrassante mais sacrément juste et nécessaire.Publié pour la première fois en 1978, à son retour à Tokyo après un long exil volontaire à New York, Manhattan suicide addict n'avait jusqu'alors connu de traduction.Il est presque compréhensible que personne n'ait voulu se lancer dans la traduction d'un tel brûlot qui met à mal, non seulement le puritanisme américain, protestant et honteux, mais surtout la bonne forme, par la totale incorrection du propos et sa manière - précise et onirique à la fois, factuelle jusqu'à l'hyperréalisme et délirante simultanément.C'est l'histoire d'une artiste d'avant-garde qui tourne mal, qui s'affiche en Pimp Kusama, fournissant à l'élite médiatico-intellectuelle (des deux sexes) une cohorte de jeunes éphèbes gay en rupture de famille.Mais c'est aussi l'histoire d'une souffrance, d'une jeune femme en proie à un syndrome narcissique avec dépersonnalisation et hallucinations que l'usage immodéré de drogues en tous genres apaise (et/ou accentue ?).L'histoire d'une réécriture des années 60 à l'aune d'un Japon étouffant qui malgré tout accueillit sa prose et la célèbra
Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La exposición muestra a Kusama como una artista irreductible y esencial en las nuevas narraciones globales del arte contemporáneo y refleja el rol crucial desempeñado por Kusama en el arte de posguerra desde una posición excéntrica: por un lado, se aproxima al pop, a los nuevos realismos y al feminismo en sus instalaciones y faceta pública; por otro, su empleo de la repetición, del monocromo y de la retícula tienen que ver a la vez con la obsesión y la enfermedad mental
Infinity net : the autobiography of Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yayoi Kusama is one of the most significant contemporary artists at work today. This engaging memoir reveals her to be a fascinating, maverick figure, channeling her obsessive neuroses into an art that transcends cultural barriers. The decade Kusama spent in New York saw her status change from poverty-stricken artist living in a freezing loft and existing on scraps of food, to doyenne of the counter-cultural art scene. She tells the story of her relationships with key art-world figures, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Donald Judd, Andy Warhol and the reclusive Joseph Cornell, with whom she forged a close bond. In candid terms she describes her childhood and the first appearance of the obsessive visions that have haunted her throughout her life. Returning to Japan and to relative obscurity in the early 1970s, Kusama admitted herself to a psychiatric hospital in Tokyo. It is from this base that she has emerged to add to the seemingly endless stream of artworks and writings that in the past decade have won her international acclaim and seen her the subject of many major exhibitions across the world. This remarkable autobiography, translated by Ralph McCarthy, provides a powerful insight into the mind of a unique artist, haunted by fears and phobias yet determined to maintain her position at the forefront of the artistic avant-garde." -- Publisher's description
