Books for Summer 2014. Arizona Gold by Sam Launius, Light Years by Adam Geary, and Murmur by Adam Geary too.
Aglu is delighted to announce the launch of three new books for the late summer.
In Arizona Gold (ISBN 978-0-9927007-3-7) by Sam Launius, the city is a place of rigid grids to be travelled and explored. The process of travelling around and soaking up the colours, feel and distinctiveness of the city is part of the work and provides a rich overlay of battered, bruised and quirky streetscapes. Sam is based in Arizona and publishes his work for the first time.
In Light Years (ISBN 978-0-9927007-4-4) by Adam Geary, the journey through the city is an all together different experience. Seeking out quiet moments from the bustle, Geary is drawn to sharp, graphic juxtapositions, where all colour is shape and all shape is colour. Through his images, we are invited to explore the universal city, where distances travelled are measured by the light of the day.
In Murmur (ISBN 978-0-9927007-2-0) also by Adam Geary, the past is explored through fleeting shadows, remains of old posters and painted out walls. Geary is drawn to the edge of the sea and city, places that are forever changing and seemingly always subject to the threat of ‘invasion’. A sense that history has passed this way and left its mark is created in the book – a small reminder of our own fragility!
Aglu books are available from www.aglu.co.uk and are priced at £5. Limited edition prints are also available.
