Nora Modern presents a celebration of a year in Detroit, with four chefs preparing four courses for every season. Josh Stockton cooks a winter meal in Corktown. Brad Greenhill makes a spring meal in Palmer Woods, Dave Mancini hosts a summer barbecue in Indian Village, and Andy Hollyday prepares an autumn supper in Boston Edison. All four chefs also offer meals for every time of the year, making this cookbook a great appreciation of the food renaissance happening in Detroit today.
$5 from the sale of every book goes to Gleaners Community Food Bank.
This just in! We are very proud to have published Scott Hocking's newest collection of photograph "Detroit Nights", a late entry contribution to our Culture Lab pop-up.
These images are, like much of the artist's work, moving, surprising, sometimes humorous, and suspenseful. They show the city in a manner that few ever see it.
It is like a place that lies out beyond the parking lot from that dream you had the other night, you know, the dream where you never looked out past the parking lot. If you had, this is what you would have seen.
When we saw these images the first time we were so taken with them we thought "Well, these have to be a book." And so we made them a book. And that is the way art works. When it's good.
About the artist: For Nora’s Culture Lab Pop Up, Detroit’s favorite man of mystery Scott Hocking might be welding an antique Ford Edsel to a sidewalk, or mass producing cassettes of spooky Halloween fart sounds. He might also be producing a book with Nora’s own Toby Barlow called Detroit Nights. Hocking describes the ongoing project (started in the mid 90s) as an attempt to capture the “strange serenity that can be found off the beaten paths”. The book is a selection of the last eight years, after Hocking switched from film to digital.
The highly individual cabins, hideaways, and summer homes featured inHide and Seekoffer their owners exceptional, yet convenient ways to escape urban routines and embed themselves into the land. These imaginative structures meld traditional architecture with modern living in fascinating and surprising ways. Whether located in the forest, on the water, or in the mountains; whether light and minimalistic or dark and cozy, the compelling dwellings exemplify how to create remote shelters that bring calm and balance to our hectic lives. With the right concept, furniture, décor, and atmosphere, even small or basic designs become stunning sanctuaries.
Hide and Seekis a contemporary survey of contextual architecture and interior design that channels our shared desire for peace and quiet. These projects not only have the power to get people in touch with their surroundings, but also with themselves.
