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.
Godard Go. A re-imagining of the popular P.D. Eastman book "Go Dog Go" only now with images from Jean-Luc Godard films. Perhaps not appropriate for children but totally appropriate for fans of Anna Karina, Jean Seberg, and the French new wave.
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.
Small Homes, Grand Living’s assortment of projects and homes pays homage to the iconic innovation within modest living areas and shows the creative usage of space in continually expanding urban areas. As more people across the globe move into cities, living space becomes a precious commodity. Designers, architects, and innovative inhabitants seek new ways of creating a home that is just as comfortable as it is functional and aesthetically pleasing. Where does one stow clothing, bicycles, suitcases, or bed linens? Where is the perfect place for the desk, bed, or couch? How does one use less square meters more effectively?
Compact flats perched atop the roofs on high-rise buildings. A one-bedroom apartment that houses a family of four. Stairs that cleverly transform into wardrobes. A collection of cozy cocoons shows the personality and innovation of those living inside: a home is both shelter and a welcoming reflection of the residents. Small Homes, Grand Living offers real interior design solutions directly from the occupants' imaginations.
