The author of "Publish This Book" and "Tales of Iceland," Markley's unique blend of humor and passion in this collection of his most irreverent and/or insightful columns. Just to prove that he's bit-time, this mix tape also includes his interview with author and environmental activist Bill McKibben of 350.org (ask your parents what a mix tape is).

Design is everywhere. Graphic design enters into everything. This is the scope of designer Steven Heller’s latest essay anthology that covers the spectrum of graphic design and related art and culture. Looking at design as practice, language, culture, and power, each of the forty-plus essays is a self-contained story. Heller pours out his ideas—criticisms and celebrations—on such topics as: A history of our modern Hindu-Arabic numerals, and a look at the letter K Brand design utilized by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump early in the 2016 Presidential race The tumultuous relationship between design and sex The Charlie Hebdo massacre and the principles of free expression Icons revisited, including Paul Rand (not to be confused with the politician Rand Paul), Ralph Ginzburg, Frank Zachary, George Lois, and Print magazine Food packaging, the design of milk, and USPS stamps The obsessive use of cuteness, and the sad and happy history of the ubiquitous happy face From commercial advertising to government institutions to cultural revolution, from the objects that push design forward to those that seep into the everyday, Graphic Design Rants and Raves is an exploration of how visual design has arrived in the twenty-first century. Allworth Press, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing, publishes a broad range of books on the visual and performing arts, with emphasis on the business of art. Our titles cover subjects such as graphic design, theater, branding, fine art, photography, interior design, writing, acting, film, how to start careers, business and legal forms, business practices, and more.

In his debut collection of short fiction, Nathan Leslie delivers a dark and scathing portrait of contemporary American society. Here, each gothic story reveals the vicious division of the sexes that lurks behind the glossy exterior of our everyday lives. Within this collection you will find a tale of a man stricken with vivid prophetic visions, a story of a tormented father who leads his son on a strange late-night journey through the woods, and another in which a man tries to sabotage his own wedding with a perfectly forged ring. Intense, urgent, and larger-than-life, these stories sketch the characters that lurk in the shadows of our strip-mall culture: phrenologists, tortured mystics, twisted egg collectors, spelunker bluesmen, control freaks, seedy yacht salesmen, and male escorts. Rants and Raves offers nothing less than a portrait of hell, a picture of an America about to implode.

The internationally acclaimed author of the L.A. Quartet and The Underworld USA Trilogy, James Ellroy, presents another literary masterpiece, this time a true crime murder mystery about his own mother. In 1958 Jean Ellroy was murdered, her body dumped on a roadway in a seedy L.A. suburb. Her killer was never found, and the police dismissed her as a casualty of a cheap Saturday night. James Ellroy was ten when his mother died, and he spent the next thirty-six years running from her ghost and attempting to exorcize it through crime fiction. In 1994, Ellroy quit running. He went back to L.A., to find out the truth about his mother--and himself. In My Dark Places, our most uncompromising crime writer tells what happened when he teamed up with a brilliant homicide cop to investigate a murder that everyone else had forgotten--and reclaim the mother he had despised, desired, but never dared to love. What ensues is a epic of loss, fixation, and redemption, a memoir that is also a history of the American way of violence. "Ellroy is more powerful than ever." --The Nation "Astonishing . . . original, daring, brilliant." --Philadelphia Inquirer
