    A New York Times BestsellerA June 2012 Amazon Best Book of the MonthIn this new original graphic novel from superstar writer/designer Chip Kidd and artist Dave Taylor, Gotham City is undergoing one of the most expansive construction booms in its history. The most prestigious architects from across the globe have buildings in various phases of completion all over town. As chairman of the Gotham Landmarks Commission, Bruce Wayne has been a key part of this boom, which signals a golden age of architectural ingenuity for the city. And then, the explosions begin. All manner of design-related malfunctions–faulty crane calculations, sturdy materials suddently collapsing, software glitches, walkways giving way and much more–cause casualties across the city. This bizarre string of seemingly random, unconnected catastrophes threaten to bring the whole construction industry down. Fingers are pointed as Batman must somehow solve the problem and find whoever is behind it all.

The implication at work here - that the selling of potato chips and the attempted annihilation of a people are rootedin the same principles of manipulation is handled deftly enough. Kidd pulls off fashioning the context of a classic coming-of-age narrative set in a specific time and place rendered convincingly surreal. 250p+.

    In PLAYERS, photographer Tina Barney expands her subject matter to include fashion, performers, and actors, as well as he own circle of friends. Emboldened by the cacophony when photographing on stage, Barney has embraced a more casual aesthetic that is visually exhilarating. In her two previous books, Barney chose to look at families in America and their milieu and then carried on this examination of families in Europe. Now she combines commercial assignments dating back as far as 1988, with editorial, fashion and portraiture. Selections from her personal work complete the mix. The result is refreshing, revealing and curious. Barney has always been fascinated by the circumstances in which the subjects operate. Whether performing publicly or privately, they are all “players”. List of Image Captions. Illus., 68 four-color photographs. 96p.
