Pointed Leaf Press

Pointed Leaf Press Lush, elegant monographs of the art, fashion, and design world's most fascinating personalities. http://www.pointedleafpress.com/

Pointed Leaf Press was founded in 2002 by Suzanne Slesin. As a publisher of high quality, photography-driven monographs on personalities (some well-known, some undiscovered) from the worlds of design, architecture, and fashion, we have made it our goal to create books that stand out, both for their unique content and matchless design quality. A book from Pointed Leaf Press is a book like none other. They are visual biographies that envelop and expound – open any of our titles and become immersed in a world re-created on page in extraordinary depth and detail. Intensely researched and illuminated by new photography, each monograph instantly establishes itself as the subject’s authoritative source-book. We have been fortunate to work with a wide list of phenomenally gifted collaborators. With art direction by Stafford Cliff and Sam Shahid, contributions from Yves Saint Laurent and Tom Ford, and titles authored by design legends such as Vladimir Kagan, as well as such note-worthy contemporary designers as William Diamond and Anthony Baratta, Scott Sanders, Matthew White, Sherrill Canet, and Frank Roop, our catalog bears the mark of authority from the design world.

The world lost a true idol yesterday. As the @nytimes puts it, "Gloria Vanderbilt...was many things in her long life: an artist, author, actress, socialite, designer, pawn, tragic story, triumphant survivor, eternal optimist, mother and wife." She'll be forever missed. Like the titan she was, she has appeared in several Pointed Leaf Press books, here are a few. From, respectively, Women by Susan Wood, Drawing Fashion by Susan Mulcahy, 100 by Alex Rosenberg, and Talking Pictures by Ellen Graham

Pointed Leaf Press is thrilled to present Alex Rosenberg: 100, a collection of 100 vignettes that together, tell the story of a remarkable life. In honor of his 100th birthday on May 25, 2019, Alex Rosenberg reflects on everything he’s accomplished and experienced in his long life. From growing up in Brooklyn, serving in the Air Force during WWII, his political activism (he was a delegate at the 1968 Democratic National Convention), expert art appraiser, a publisher of fine art prints (Salvador Dali and Henry Moore were frequent collaborators), his involvement in Cuban art (he was instrumental in bringing Cuban Art to the U.S.), traveling the world, his writing (this book is his third), and his bar mitzvah (at the age of 72), Alex Rosenberg is a force to be reckoned with. And he doesn’t plan on slowing down – he still goes to work every day. With the 100th topic appropriately being the speech he gave at his 100th birthday party, Alex Rosenberg: 100 shows a life well-lived. Click the link in our bio to order your limited edition copy!

Pointed Leaf Press is pleased to announce the upcoming publication of Jennifer Post Modern by Jennifer Post, written by Anna Kasabian. The famed AD 100 designer’s newest collection of interiors is on display–a select group that takes us on a new journey, one where organic translates to luxury, where infusions of color are woven into breathtaking, dramatic spaces. This, her second monograph, is a new design declaration for Post whose less is more philosophy continues her story, but this time, she infuses her work with softer movements, and a color palette that mines the landscape. Comprised of her latest and most significant projects to date, many are located in Manhattan’s most luxurious and noteworthy high-rises where breathtaking views dovetail with her designs to create a flawless spectrum of energy. In addition, projects in the Hamptons, Florida and the Caribbean showcase her design shift with nature, light, and water playing off tranquil themes. Three double-page gatefolds bring readers into a few of the choice interiors, leaving the reader wondering what comes next, not only in this monograph, but in this dynamic, design perfectionist’s career. @jcpost100 @jenniferpostdesign
Official publication date: September 2019

Introducing Artifact: The Art and Gardens of Jeff Mendoza which presents the thoughtful and sophisticated landscape designs of Jeff Mendoza. A formally trained artist, his work often reflects the natural world–depicting botanical forms with earthly palettes. He noticed this connection and opened his eponymous firm, J. Mendoza Gardens in 1987. While plants became his medium, he approached the design of a garden in the same manner he would a drawing or painting–considering form, color, texture, scale, and the overall composition. Artifact is a portfolio of Mendoza’s accomplished career tracing his various projects–whether a city terrace or a country yard–is intellectually planned for each unique environment and spatial layout.
