"Mary Kelly's "Post-Partum Document," one of this century's most significant and influential artistic statements on identity, represents the ultimate merging of feminism and minimalist performativity. . . . It is an extraordinary work that is viscerally experienced rather than statically received."--Maurice Berger, New School for Social Research

Celebrating the seventy-fifth anniversary of this iconic luxury fashion brand, this book presents a vibrant visual survey of Coach’s continual exploration and redefinition of American style, infused with its distinctively cool New York City spirit. At the heart of Coach, arguably one the world’s most recognizable fashion brands, is its effortless New York style, cutting-edge design, craftsmanship, and authenticity. This volume explores the evolution of this American company, from its beginnings in 1941 in a small loft as a manufacturer of leather goods to its transformation into a revered international fashion and lifestyle brand.Inspired by the pulsating energy of New York City in the 1960s, the company’s owners Miles and Lillian Cahn cultivated an entirely new Coach brand that offered not only men’s leather goods, but also women’s handbags, totes, small leather goods, and other accessories envisioned by the legendary American sportswear designer Bonnie Cashin. Each creative director from Cashin to Stuart Vevers, the company’s current head of creative since 2013, continued to evolve the modern definition of "American cool" in the relaxed aesthetic and effortless style of Coach’s designs. This richly illustrated volume features both recent and archival photography, ranging from product design sketches to iconic advertising campaigns, and imagery of Coach’s inspirational references from celebrity figures to the electrifying, fast-paced cityscapes of New York City. A definitive volume of the brand’s celebrated heritage, Coach will be treasured by its devoted customers and fashion, style, and cultural enthusiasts alike."

The stunning novel that explores the secret life of Mecca by the first woman to win the international prize for Arabic fiction. When the body of a young woman is discovered in the Lane of Many Heads, an alley in modern-day Mecca, no one will claim it, as they are all ashamed of her nakedness. As Detective Nasser pursues his investigation of the case, seemingly all of Mecca chimes in—including the Lane of Many Heads itself—in this brilliant, funny, profane, and enigmatic fever dream of a novel by Raja Alem, the first woman to win the International Prize for Arabic Fiction. Nasser initially suspects that the dead woman is Aisha, one of the residents of the Area, and he searches her emails for clues. The world she paints embraces everything from crime and religious extremism to the exploitation of foreign workers by a mafia of building contractors, who are destroying the historic areas of the city. In stark relief with this grimness is the beauty of her love letters to her German boyfriend. Another view reveals the city through the eyes of Yusuf, Aisha's neighbor, increasingly frustrated by the acceleration pace of change. As gripping as classic noir, nuanced as a Nabokov novel, and labyrinthine as the alleys of Mecca itself, this powerful and disturbing work of fiction masterfully reveals a city and a civilization in all its contradictions, at once beholden to brutal customs and uneasily coming to terms with new traditions. Raja Alem's singular The Dove's Necklace is a virtuosic work of literature that deserves the world's attention.

For the past thirty years, Hal Foster has pushed the boundaries of cultural criticism, establishing a vantage point from which the seemingly disparate agendas of artists, patrons, and critics have a telling coherence. In The Anti-Aesthetic, preeminent critics such as Jean Baudrillard, Rosalind Krauss, Fredric Jameson, and Edward Said consider the full range of postmodern cultural production, from the writing of John Cage, to Cindy Sherman's film stills, to Barbara Kruger's collages. With a redesigned cover and a new afterword that situates the book in relation to contemporary criticism, The Anti-Aesthetic provides a strong introduction for newcomers and a point of reference for those already engaged in discussions of postmodern art, culture, and criticism. Includes a new afterword by Hal Foster and 12 black and white photographs.
