    Title: Anchor
    Author: SCHIFFMACHER HENRIK

    Literally a metal device that prevents a ship or boat from drifting, the anchor came to represent a sailor’s last resort in stormy weather, a symbol of well-grounded hope. In early Christianity, hope was an anchor for the soul, as Christ was an anchor in life. The anchor was a synonym for steadfastness, strength, tranquility, and faithfulness: all these qualities help us to weather the storms of life.

    This is the fourth volume in a series of publications dealing with major themes in tattoo art. They feature a superb selection of images covering the art and history of Western electric tattooing that are hand picked from the Schiffmacher Collection.

    Title: Berliner Mauerbilder : the Berlin Wall Book
    Author: WALDENBURG HERMANN

    Painters and graffiti artists from all over the world used the grey concrete of the Berlin Wall, that stretched for miles and divided a city, as a canvas to visually record their impressions of the underlying political and social culture it represented; thus the Wall became iconic, representing the voice of a generation in the 1980s. Today, more than 20 years after the re-unification of the city, only a few sections of the Wall have been preserved, and just as much of the powerful and emotive graffiti, it is now a thing of the past. This book documents the art of the Wall - over 70 of the most fascinating, creative, colourful, uninhibited and provocative works of graffiti produced - photographed by the artist and designer Hermann Waldenburg between 1984 and 1990.

    Title: Forever: the New Tattoo
    Author: KLANTEN ROBERT

    Tattoos, which were once an exclusively underground phenomenon, now have mass appeal. This evolution from sub-culture to mainstream has brought fresh ideas, tensions, and shifts with it, and traditionalists and innovators have staked out very different positions. Over the last few years, new influences from the realms of art, fashion, traditional tattoo art, and visual culture have given rise to a dynamic tattoo scene--a new underground. This cutting-edge tattoo culture is as innovative, diverse, inspiring, and controversial as the motifs it creates. One of the most striking facets of this new tattoo scene is its interaction with high fashion and art. The internationally successful artists Scott Campbell or Usugrow, to name just two high-profile examples, began their careers as tattoo artists. Forever breaks the mold of standard tattoo books and their typical displays of flesh. This publication is an in-depth investigation of current developments in contemporary tattoo culture. It introduces key innovators and presents a broad range of styles and approaches. Quality photos and insightful texts document the new self-image of a rapidly expanding and extremely creative scene.

    Title: Ghosts of Ellis Island
    Author: SPIEGELMAN ART

    In August 2014 the French artist JR received an unprecedented invitation to work in the Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital, a building on the south side of the island that has been abandoned and closed to visitors since 1954. About ten percent of the millions of migrants who passed through Ellis Island, having been deemed not healthy enough to enter the United States, spent some time in the hospital. For "Unframed-Ellis Island," documented in "The Ghosts of Ellis Island," JR chose about 20 archival photographs of the hospital's patients and staff and wheat-pasted these images around the abandoned building, creating haunting scenes that bring the history of these rooms back to life: a family looking out at the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, a small boy lying on an empty bed frame, patients staring out of the caged "psychopathic" ward. The work, which is accessible by guided tour, will remain up "until it decides to disappear." Along with images of JR's photographic interventions in the hospital, this publication includes new illustrations by legendary cartoonist Art Spiegelman, who collaborated with JR on illustrated narratives about Ellis Island's immigrants.
    JR (born 1983) is best known for his monumental, wheat-pasted street portraiture projects. His ongoing project "Unframed" involves installing archival images and images from anonymous photographers in new contexts. JR has carried out "Unframed" projects in Marseille, São Paulo, Vevey, Atlanta, Baden Baden and Washington, DC. In 2014 he worked inside the theater of the NYC Ballet creating a 6,500-square-foot composite image of NYCB dancers depicted nearly life-size that, when seen from above, forms a giant eye. JR won the TED Prize for 2011.
    Art Spiegelman (born 1948) is an American cartoonist, editor and comics advocate based in New York City, best known for his graphic novel "Maus (1991). His work as coeditor on the comics magazines "Arcade" and "Raw" has been influential, and he spent a decade as contributing artist for "The New Yorker" where he made several high-profile and sometimes controversial covers.

    Title: Joseph Ari Aloi Aka Jk5: an Archive of Sketches, Tattoos, Drawings, Paintings, & Objects
    Author: ALOI JOSEPH ARI

    The first monograph to celebrate the diverse and eclectic work of one of the true visionaries of the contemporary art world. Joseph Ari Aloi-aka JK5-is a compulsive artist for whom every free moment is an opportunity to create. Bringing together his work as a fine artist with the instincts and references that color his passions of tattoo and graffiti art, JK5 has an expansive, textured, and highly individual visual vernacular. Whether as a painter, illustrator, calligrapher, or designer, JK5 is preoccupied with the collision of personal and revelatory themes with profound pop-cultural iconography, resulting in a powerful and readily identifiable style.

    This creatively designed monograph features work that extends from paintings on canvas to plastic vinyl toys, from storyboards for animation films to collages and scratch cards, and from outlines for tattoo work to a vast collection of sketchbooks-each completed with such regularity that they serve as a kind of artist diary, recording his changing preoccupations and varying visual interests. Edited by the artist-with contributions from fellow artists Mike Giant and Kenzo Minami-and designed to reflect the varying and tactile nature of the work, this is an artist's book that will exist as a unique and collectible object in its own right as much as a record of the remarkable output of one of the most prolific voices in contemporary art.

    Title: Moko: Maori Tattooing in the 20th Century

    Moko is written by Michael King, one of New Zealand's most celebrated historians, and photographed by Marti Friedlander, one of the country¿s most eminent photographers. One of New Zealand's iconic books, originally published in 1972, it was a milestone in New Zealand publishing. Maori subject matter was not thought to be of interest to the New Zealand public at that time, and the author and photographer were relative unknowns--Moko was their first book. To research this book, King and Friedlander travelled thousands of kilometres through the hinterland of New Zealand to find and speak with those who were tattooed, or with people who had first-hand knowledge of the custom. It is also the story of the last generation of Maori women who wore the traditional moko. Marti Friedlander's photographs illustrate with skill and compassion the moko itself, the women who wore it and the environments in which they lived.

    Title: Mother
    Author: SCHIFFMACHER HENRIK

    "Mother" has always been a popular theme in the world of tattoos, and the first tattoo a young man gets is often associated with this theme, not least because of the ruckus he will avoid when returning home with it. At first most mothers become angry at such an impulsive deed, but once she realises that this is an indelible display of unconditional love for her and that it will be visible to all for all time, all her heart can do is melt.

    Nowadays, a truly "modern" mother sometimes accompanies her son to the tattoo parlour and witnesses how the representation of her sons love for her takes shape. Sometimes this does not happen, because she has already passed away. A tattoo with the word "Mother," occasionally even coloured with her ashes, can make such a great loss more bearable. The tattoo is part of the mourning process; it provides comfort and nurtures acceptance. The pain is boldly endured, a tear or two might roll down his cheeks, but bargaining about the price is considered bad form.

    In this book, the most beautiful Mother tattoos from the Schiffmacher Collection are collected. A special gift book for mother, which can also be an inspiration for how one can wear the love for her on his skin forever.

Driven both by the artists themselves and their clients' needs, the work is original and surprising and runs the gamut from fine line illustration and pointillism to blackout tattoos that take the place of clothing. The themes are varied from personal mantras or interests to meaningful portraits and memorials.

    Author: YOUNG ALISON

    Street art and graffiti are a familiar sight in all our cities. Giant murals commemorate historical events or proclaim the culture of a neighborhood, while tagged walls can function simultaneously as a claim to territory and a backdrop for an urban fashion shoot. "Street Art World" examines these divergent forms and functions of street art. This strikingly illustrated book explores every aspect of street art, from those who spray it into being to those who revel in it on Instagram, from its place under highway overpasses to one on the austere walls of high art museums.
    What exactly is street art? Is it the same as graffiti, or do they have different histories, meanings, and practitioners? Who makes it? Who buys it? Can it be exhibited at all, or does it always have to appear unsanctioned? Talking with artists, collectors, sellers, and buyers, author Alison Young reveals an energetic world of self-made artists who are simultaneously passionate about an authentic form of expression and ambivalent about the prospects of selling it to make a living even a fabulously good one.
    Drawing on over twenty years of research, she juxtaposes the rise and fall of art markets against the vibrancy of the street and urban life, providing a rich history and new ways of contextualizing the words and images some breathtakingly beautiful that seem to appear overnight in cities around the world.

    Author: ARMSTRONG SIMON


    Street art is a phenomenon and subculture movement that reaches from the darkest urban backstreets to the most glamorous international art fairs. Despite having earned a place in the canon of twentieth-century art history, its qualifications are often disputed by both the art establishment and practitioners themselves, all concerned with notions of authenticity.


    This book examines how street art evolved from its origins in the 1970s New York graffiti scene to embrace many new materials, styles, and techniques. The once marginal art form has graduated into art galleries and the art market, while also heavily influencing design, fashion, advertising, and visual culture. Simon Armstrong walks readers through its controversial history, taking in the movement's significant artists, artworks, and methods, and showcasing the works that have come to define it. He also discusses its close relationship to pop art and digital art, and explores possible futures for street art.


    Packed with detail and written in an engaging, accessible style, this latest installment in the Art Essentials series is a must-read for lovers of street art and anyone interested in the way art movements gradually join the mainstream.

Featuring key works by 150 artists, it connects four generations of street practitioners, incoporating both niche artists such as Miss Van and noteworthy names as Jean Tinguely, Keith Haring, Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer, Gordon Matta-Clark, Billboard Liberation Front, Guerrilla Girls, and Banksy. The book is set out in thematic chapters that engage with the central theme of 'trespassing'. While images of the works are allowed to speak for themselves, each theme is prefaced by a brief essay to provide thought-provoking context to the history, politics, protest, and illicit performance of self-expression in the social space. Writers include Anne Pasternak (director of public arts fund Creative Time) and civil rights lawyer Tony Serra.

Not only did he smuggle his pieces into four of New York City's major art museums, he's also ""hung"" his work at London's Tate Gallery and adorned Israel's West Bank barrier with satirical images. Banksy's identity remains unknown, but his work is unmistakable--with prints selling for as much as $45,000.
