Even in our rapidly changing world, books remain uniquely suited to conveying ideas in a substantial and beautiful way.

Since the publication of its inaugural title—S,M,L,XL by Rem Koolhaas and Bruce Mau, a groundbreaking monograph that remains unsurpassed in its influence on design publishing—under the guidance of publisher Gianfranco Monacelli the press has produced more than 500 books in collaboration with prominent figures in diverse practices, including Robert A.M. Stern, Rafael Moneo, OverUnder, Piet Oudolf, Kate Orff, Richard Pare, and Marian Bantjes, among many others. The applied arts imprint Monacelli Studio was launched in 2015, adding art instruction, photography technique, and crafts to the publisher’s roster. Its authors represent the leading artists and instructors in their fields, including Juliette Aristides, Steven B. Reddy, J. C. Amberlyn, Roberto Osti, Robert Zeller, Mario Andres Robinson, and Brenda Tharp. The Monacelli Press is committed to its role in presenting the newest ideas from essential practitioners and thinkers of our time.

Inside Some Of The Last Bohemian Apartments In The Hotel Chelsea

"The book beautifully captures around half of the remaining residents and their apartments, many of which feature layers of fabrics, art, wallpaper, textures, and a life *lived*—a maximalist aesthetic you might expect to find there, and a storied tapestry you would never find at a regular hotel." Gothamist

A rare look inside the remaining apartments.

Friday, November 15th at 7:30pm meet Colin Miller & Ray Mock, authors of "Hotel Chelsea" at [words].

An intimate portrayal of the enduring bohemian spirit of the Chelsea Hotel through interviews with nearly two dozen current residents and richly detailed photographs of their unique spaces. These apartments project the quirky decorating sensibilities of urban aesthetes who largely work in film, theater, and the visual arts, resulting in deliriously ornamental spaces with a kitschy edge.

Michael Heizer: From Archaeology to Land Art

"Fox’s central argument is not only that archaeology (Heizer’s father Robert was a renowned archaeologist) and the work of peers such as Robert Smithson and Walter de Maria strongly informed Heizer’s work, but that exploring these influences is a worthwhile endeavor that adds interest to Heizer’s art."

One Woman's Unflinching Exploration of Midlife - ELEPHANT

"Often, the images that we see in art and culture that promote diversity give everything a glossy veneer—suggesting that everything is going to be ok. But being inclusive shouldn’t only mean including positive stories. We need complicated images with complex meanings, things that are difficult to untie."

Read Elephant Magazine's review of MIDLIFE by Elinor Carucci Official Page.

How does it feel to be a woman who is ageing in a society obsessed with youth? Elinor Carucci documents her own experiences of middle-age in 2019—from her children growing up to a hysterectomy operation—with a frank and sometimes brutal gaze.
