Andy Warhol’s The Chelsea Girls
Andy Warhol’s 1966 movie The Chelsea Girls is the iconic document of the Factory scene and 1960s New York. This book is an in-depth, deluxe treatment of the film, featuring stills from the newly digitized film, previously unpublished transcripts and archival materials, and expanded information about each of the individual films that comprise The Chelsea Girls. The film’s alternation of sound between the left and right screens is reproduced in the publication’s complete, as-heard transcript printed directly alongside imagery from the corresponding reels on silver metallic paper to evoke an authentic experience of the film.

Halston & Warhol: Silver & Suede
Halston and Warhol illuminate through their art and fashion a uniquely American point of view, one that matched high and low materials and deceptively simple forms with multistep processes. Both were outsiders, one from Pittsburgh and one from Iowa, whose New York careers challenged the status quo. For the first time, their lives and work are presented side by side in over 300 images with interviews and essays that explore their friendship and their art.
