We are proud to announce @lewismillerdesign's #flowerflashbook, publishing this October.

Before dawn one morning in fall 2016, renowned New York-based floral designer Lewis Miller stealthily arranged hundreds of brightly colored dahlias, carnations, and mums into a psychedelic halo around the John Lennon memorial in Central Park. The spontaneous floral installation was Miller's gift to the city—an effort to spark joy during a difficult time. Nearly five years and more than ninety Flower Flashes later, these elaborate flower bombs—bursts of jubilant blooms in trash cans, over bus canopies, on construction sites and traffic medians—have brought moments of delight and wonder to countless New Yorkers and flower lovers everywhere, and earned Miller a following of dedicated fans and the nickname the "Flower Bandit." https://bit.ly/2Tg4Y13

Happy #pride month everyone. This week we highlight @phaidonsnaps title #ArtandQueerCulture by #CatherineLord and @slowartrichardmeyer, which features work by iconic artists such as #AndyWarhol and #RobertMapplethorpe alongside that of AIDS activists, lesbian separatists, and pre-Stonewall photographers and scrapbook-keepers (who did not regard themselves as artists at all).

This volume traces a spectacular history of #queer life and creativity in the modern age – from the rich visual legacy of art's relationship to #Queer culture to the emergence of homosexuality as an identity in the late 19th century and the pioneering 'genderqueers' of the early 21st. https://www.phaidon.com/store/art/art-and-queer-culture-9780714878348/

Our Story

Publisher Gianfranco Monacelli conceived the venture as a distinct and stimulating voice in the visual arts to reinterpret and challenge the conventional boundaries of the field, to bring forth the best, most provocative, and the most substantive of what the finest creative minds—and eyes—have to offer. The Monacelli Press has published more than 250 books since it was established in 1994, books that are distinctive for both content and visual presentation. S,M,L,XL, by Rem Koolhaas and Bruce Mau, is unsurpassed in its influence on design publishing—it is the book to which all architectural monographs are compared. New York 1880, New York 1960, and New York 2000, by Robert A. M. Stern and his editorial team, are similarly unmatched in their exhaustive presentations of the history of New York City. The Press is also known for studies of historic and contemporary artists and architects; for perceptive photodocumentation of places and events; for exceptional volumes on traditional and contemporary interior design; for energetic collections of graphic and product design. The wide variety of subjects—Counterpoint: Daniel Libeskind in Conversation with Paul Goldberger; Harlem, Lost and Found, an evocative portrait of the Harlems of yesteryear; Towards a New Museum, the acclaimed study by Victoria Newhouse; Paris/New York: Design Fashion Culture 1925-1940, copublished with the Museum of the City of New York; Eric Fischl: 1970-2000; Crossing Boundaries: A Global Vision of Design, by famed interior designer Vicente Wolf; Adrian: Silver Screen to Custom Label—is a testament to the incisive and insightful approach of The Monacelli Press.
