Carrie Mae Weems
Distributed Art Publishers, 2022
One of the most influential American artists working today, Carrie Mae Weems has investigated narratives around family, race, gender, sexism, class and the consequences of power for more than 40 years. Her complex oeuvre--always ahead of its time, and profoundly formative for younger generations of artists--has employed photography (for which she is best known), fabric, text, audio, digital images, installation and video. Writing in the New York Times, Holland Cotter succinctly described Weems as "a superb image maker and a moral force, focused and irrepressible."
This volume, spanning four decades of work, is the most thorough survey yet published. It includes Weems' earliest series, such as Family Pictures and Stories, for which she photographed her relatives and close friends; the legendary Kitchen Table Series, in which she posed in a domestic setting; and other critically acclaimed works and series such as Ain't Jokin', Colored People, From Here I Saw What Happened and I Cried, Not Manet's Type, The Jefferson Suite, Monuments, Roaming, Museums, Constructing History (A Class Ponders the Future), Slow Fade to Black and the Obama Project, among many others.

This publication is dedicated solely to the early and canonical body of work by American artist Carrie Mae Weems (born 1953). The 20 photographs and 14 text panels that make up Kitchen Table Series tell a story of one woman’s life, as conducted in the intimate setting of her kitchen. The kitchen, one of the primary spaces of domesticity and the traditional domain of women, frames her story, revealing to us her relationships―with lovers, children, friends―and her own sense of self, in her varying projections of strength, vulnerability, aloofness, tenderness and solitude. As Weems describes it, this work of art depicts “the battle around the family ... monogamy ... and between the sexes. Weems herself is the protagonist of the series, though the woman she depicts is an archetype. Kitchen Table Series seeks to reposition and reimagine the possibility of women and the possibility of people of color, and has to do with, in the artist’s words, “unrequited love.”

Les montres Cartier sont uniques, que ce soit par leur forme ou par leurs mouvements. Elles allient toujours le classique à l'inattendu. Cet ouvrage retrace la recherche constante de l'excellence de la part de Cartier en matière de montres aux mécanismes compliqués.
Depuis une montre chronographe Tortue à bouton poussoir unique, créée en 1929, jusqu'à une montre squelette Santos 100 contemporaine, Cartier interprète la complexité à sa manière inimitable, avec un sens aigu du design. Les photographies de Laziz Hamani immortalisent ces exceptionnelles réalisations techniques, tandis que l'auteur et expert Jack Forster nous fait revivre la passion qui pousse chaque artisan, chaque concepteur et chaque artiste à créer les montres les plus incroyablement complexes.

Palais Royal, 2019
This limited edition brings together over 1 000 rare objects created by Cartier between 1875 and 1965, most of which are in private collections, here published for the first time and illustrated life size. Volume one traces Cartier's history from its origins to the 1960s, beginning with the period of Fabergé influence through to the iconic 1920s art deco style and the exotic inspired by Chinese art and the maharajas of India. This chronology is complemented by a second volume on the relationship between the Cartier brothers and their collaborators, with a focus on the manufacturing process. In particular, it features more than 80 marks of master goldsmiths, a list of suppliers and original design drawings from both the Cartier Collection in Geneva and the authors' personal collections.
