“The first increment of rest that we can practice is a pause.” – Octavia RaheemWho has time for rest? Too many of us would say, not me. Rest is devalued in society, but we NEED rest. I'm so excited to share this juicy conversation with Octavia Raheem, a rest/restorative coach and founder of Devoted to Rest™. If you feel like you can't stop, even if you're on the edge of burnout, you need this one.Octavia talks us through the tiniest bit of rest, a pause for three breaths, before we begin. Try it as you listen. See how it feels to pause, to breathe, to rest. Octavia came into rest because of a health crisis. She says she didn't know how to stop, so life stopped her in her tracks. It took being in a hospital bed for her to see the hamster wheel of doing she had been on.Rest is a daily practice, and it's easy to slip out of that practice. We get into how to build rest into your day, how to keep it a regular part of your life, and how a system that supports and values rest helps a lot.We talk about: Recognizing the tension between work and rest and feeling worthy of rest Productivity versus a spirit of creativity and generativeness Ways to slow down, like learning to be with your breath even when you are in motion and simplifying your morning (or other) routines Teaching our kids that it's okay to rest and go slow Recognizing where you are pulling more weight and disrupting old systems that keep you doing it Having the courage to experience your life, not just do itABOUT OCTAVIA Octavia Raheem is a wife, mother, author of two best selling books Pause, Rest, Be and Gather. She is a rest/restorative coach, yoga + meditation educator, and former wellness studio owner. She is the creator of Devoted to Rest™, a transformational rest focused experience for visionary women leaders making a high impact in their fields. Within her rest and work she threads time tested practices, depth skill and knowledge about what supports rest and what doesn't, wisdom rooted in Black American Southern traditions, and intuition into a blanket of experience under which individuals can gather and rebuke stress, fatigue, and burnout. Her offerings lead driven, inspiring, creative, and purpose centered individuals and companies to awaken the fullness of their potential and power through rest. Octavia has over 20 years of experience and well over 10,000 hours of designing and delivering classes, restshops, workshops, immersions, and trainings that transform, heal, and restore individuals and organizations. In 2021 Yoga Journal magazine recognized Octavia as one of fifteen experienced yoga professionals who have elevated and changed the field on a global scale. Closer to home and as a beacon in her local community, she was named one of four luminaries who have lit the way and created new avenues to yoga in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Southeast in September 2019 by Natural Awakening Magazine. Additionally her writing, rest, and work have been featured in Mantra, Tricycle, Well + Good, Atlanta Magazine, CNN, and at Essence Festival Wellhouse Atlanta. She has an academic background in English Literature, creative writing, and middle grades education as well as 10+ years of professional experience developing curricula for innovative learning and teaching Language Arts in K-12 settings. Most recently, she combined her passion for yoga, creativity, language, and community through her four year tenure as co-director for Yoga, Literature, and Art Camp for Teen Girls at Spelman College Museum of Fine Art founded by Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts. Octavia is committed to herself, family, community, and our world being well and rested- in body, mind, heart, and spirit.LINKS

Her artwork is included in several private collections and has been featured in exhibitions across the U.S. and internationally in New York, NY, Chicago, IL, Miami, FL, New Orleans, LA, and Oakland, CA – most recently in her solo exhibitions In The Beloved at Almine Rech Gallery, Brussels, Belgium, The Labour of Being at Almine Rech Gallery, Paris, France, and The Ether - Journey In Between at Richard Beavers Gallery, NYC; group exhibitions, SAY IT LOUD at Christie's Auction House, Salon de Peinture at Almine Rech, NY, and LIGHT at the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) in South Korea.

Admittedly, Tara M. Stringfellow became an attorney simply because her first book of poetry didn't sell and she needed an income. But after a few years at Crown Castle in Chicago doing family and real estate law, she left, heading straight to the Master of Fine Arts program in creative writing at Northwestern University to get back into the writing game—this time with a lawyer's sharpened pencil.

This week I'm talking with photographer Brett Lindell. I met Brett back in 2010 when I was showing at the Fountain Art Fair and I've been a fan of his work ever since. We're talking about what got him in to photography, his artistic journey and his new book “UNRAVELING”.
Johan Van Mullem (Belgian painter born in 1959) persisted in his youthful search for wrinkled faces, seeking the beauty he recognized in an experience engraved on the faces and in the hands. Since then, the face remains the major subject of his work but over time reversing the imprint of it on his own face while these subjects seem to rejuvenate, disappearing or emerging in a halo of light in old-fashioned sfumato, offering the gaze an escape into the world of emotion, because Johan van Mullem's work is an invitation to introspection, to a journey whose omnipresent emotional charge cannot leave indifferent as the depth is often dizzying. The superimposition and erasure of the many smooth layers of the diluted inks further accentuate this feeling of inexpressible presence on the canvas. The self-taught mastery of the specific and unique technicality of his work because only executed in etching ink (an extension of his experience as an engraver) gives his work an additional exceptional character. Complete artist, designer, painter, and sculptor, (but also poet and musician) Johan Van Mullem strives to create a multiple, diverse but absolutely coherent work offering links and bridges to all our senses awakened by this work that projects as much into the past as into a contemporaneity. artistdecoded.com johanvanmullem.com fine-arts-museum.be/en/exhibitions/johan-van-mullem instagram.com/johanvanmullem

Ever since the pandemic, questions and concerns over the human body and the public health have heightened. We wanted to ensure that the conversations we would have with our guests went beyond our experience of the last three years. Some of the questions we ask this season are: Can we look at the role of architecture for providing care beyond the design of hospitals?What are the ways in which medical tourism defines entire cities?How do we shape our environment to foster healthy living – both physically and mentally?And how do we leave behind a digital legacy as designers, after death? With the support of the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, here's introducing Season 5.
On today's episode, W. Scott Olsen talks to David Brookover, a fine art photographer and gallery owner from Jackson, Wyoming, USA.This podcast is brought to you by FRAMES - a high-quality quarterly printed photography magazine.

Devendra Banhart, Phil Elverum, Jenny Hval and Bedouine discuss eating on tour, how art is intimacy exposed, and what can be learned from terrible shows. Devendra Banhart, was born in Texas and raised between Venezuela and California, where he attended the San Francisco Art Institute. After dropping out in 2000, he started moving around different cities, experimenting with songwriting and busking as he went. When he released his second album, Oh Me Oh My, in 2002 ,he signed to XL Recordings, and has since released nine albums and collaborated with artists like Anohni, Beck and The Strokes' Fabrizio Moretti. His new album Flying Wig has just come out and was recorded in a Topanga cabin once owned by Neil Young. He's also a visual artist, and has had pieces featured in galleries including San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art, MOCA and Brussels' Centre for Fine Arts. Phil Elverum is a singer-songwriter, producer and visual artist from Washington state. Best known for his musical projects The Microphones and Mount Eerie, he almost exclusively uses analogue recording equipment to make music and tends to compose as he records. His output spans more than 40 albums. Norwegian singer-songwriter, producer and novelist Jenny Hval's avant-garde music has a heavy focus on sexuality and politics. Her debut EP Cigars was released in 2006 and was nominated for a Spellemannprisen (the Nowegian Grammys). Since then, she has released music under her own name, Rocket to the Sky and collaboratively with Laura Jean as Lost Girls. Bedouine is a Syrian-American folk musician whose sound is beautifully reminiscent of 1960s North America. Born in Aleppo, Syria, she grew up between Saudi Arabia and Texas before settling in Savannah to study sound design. Since then, she's released three studio albums and toured with the likes of Fleet Foxes, Michael Kiwanuka and Jose Gonzalez.
We meet legendary artist Sylvia Snowden from her home in Chicago where she has been painting for the past 60+ years!Known for her use of abundantly thick, layered paint, Snowden has developed a visual language in which gems of colour and texture emerge from densely-worked under layers. From dark and earthy tones to the vibrant and artificial, Snowden's command of chromatic range is the fuel of her expressionistic style. Over the course of her more than five-decade-long career, in which she has always painted in series, Snowden developed an adroitness with her medium. She initially employed oil paint and pastels then moved toward acrylic–a less toxic and faster-drying alternative–after having children. Snowden paints sculpturally, her compositions range from larger-than-life to portrait-sized. Her process allows visible evidence of constructed layers and employs impasto that interacts with her bold figures caught in motion with physical weight.Snowden's voluminous bodies, often contrapposto, are surrounded by peaks of shifting chroma in a physical manifestation of feeling; she depicts the tension and intensity of life, and the troubled, optimistic, and dramatic elements of our sublime existence. Snowden encapsulates the psychological essence of her subjects–some of whom were unhoused and transient, displaced by gentrification, others with whom she had intimate or long-term relationships–their triumphs, paranoia, agony, and anger are all visible; these works convey an emotionally turbulent environment. Snowden's expressive paintings reference the immediate lives of these individuals, and act as interpretations of each subject's psyche. As a serial painter, Snowden alternates between representation and abstraction, exhausting her emotional self between each mode as she articulates the struggles and successes of humanity.Snowden received a scholarship to Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, ME and has a certificate from La Grande Chaumier in Paris, France. She holds both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Howard University. At Howard University she studied under David C. Driskell. She has taught at Howard University, Cornell and Yale, has served as an artist-in-residence, a panelist, visiting artist, lecturer/instructor and curator in universities, galleries and art schools both in the United States and internationally. She has exhibited at the National Gallery of Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Women's Museum, Montclair Art Museum, Baltimore Museum of Art, Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, The Phillips Collection, Heckscher Museum of Art, and the Mary McLeod Bethune Memorial Museum and National Archives for Black Women's History . Her works have been shown in Chile, the Netherlands, Ethiopia, Australia, the Bahamas, France, Mexico, Italy and Japan.Visit Sylvia's new exhibition 'M Street on White' until 28th October 2023 in London at Edel Assanti: https://edelassanti.com/exhibitions/118-sylvia-snowden-m-street-on-white/Follow Sylvia's galleries @EdelAssanti and @ParraschHeijnen Hosted on Acast.

Episode No. 620 features artists Stacy Kranitz and Kristine Potter. Kranitz and Potter are included in "A Long Arc: Photography and the American South since 1845" at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. The exhibition considers the South as a forger of American identity and examines how Southern photographers have contributed to both the advance of their medium, and the US project. "A Long Arc" was curated by Gregory J. Harris and Sarah Kennel, and will be on view through January 14, 2024 before traveling to the Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, Mass., and to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond. The catalogue was published by Aperture. Bookshop and Amazon offer it for about $70. Kranitz's work, primarily made in the southern Appalachian Mountains, presents the complexity and instability of a rugged region on which industry has preyed. Her work is in the collection of museums such as the Harvard Art Museums and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Her 2022 book As it Was Give(n) to Me was published by Twin Palms and was shortlisted for a Paris Photo-Aperture First Photobook Award. Bookshop and Amazon offer it for about $75-80. Aperture has just published Potter's second monograph, Dark Waters. The book extends Potter's interest in using the US landscape as an ideological site by exploring how nineteenth and twentieth-century 'murder ballads' marry site to misogynistic violence. Bookshop and Amazon offer it for about $43-61. Instagram: Stacy Kranitz, Kristine Potter, Tyler Green.

Tony Diaz, el Librotraficante spotlights Dr. Carmen Tafolla's latest book WARRIOR GIRL! Carmen talks about the book, it's representation, and how this novel is defying the books bans occurring now and reads several poems from the book. Her book published through Penguin Random House is available through various online stores but also at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center's Latino Bookstore and makes an excellent addition to your family library, public library, and underground library. Carmen Tafolla is the 2015 State Poet Laureate of Texas and the former president of the Texas Institute of Letters. An award-winning poet and children's author, storyteller, performance artist, motivational speaker, scholar, and university professor, she is the author of more than forty books and a professor emeritus of Transformative Children's Literature at @UTSA. Her numerous awards and distinctions include the prestigious Américas Award, the designation of first city Poet Laureate of San Antonio, six International Latino Book Awards, two Tomás Rivera Book Awards, two ALA Notable Books, the Art of Peace Award, and the Charlotte Zolotow Award. WARRIOR GIRL (@penguinrandomhouse, 2023) chronicles Celina and her family who are bilingual and follow both Mexican and American traditions. Celina revels in her Mexican heritage, but once she starts school it feels like the world wants her to erase that part of her identity. Fortunately, she's got an army of family and three fabulous new friends behind her to fight the ignorance. But it's her Gramma who's her biggest inspiration, encouraging Celina to build a shield of joy around herself . Because when you're celebrating, when you find a reason to sing or dance or paint or play or laugh or write, they haven't taken everything away from you. Of course, it's not possible to stay in celebration mode when things get dire--like when her dad's deported and a pandemic hits--but if there is anything Celina's sure of, it's that she'll always live up to her last Guerrera--woman warrior--and that she will use her voice and writing talents to show the world it's a more beautiful place because people like her are in it. Tony Diaz Writer and activist Tony Diaz, El Librotraficante, is a Cultural Accelerator. He was the first Chicano to earn a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Houston Creative Writing Program.

He is the author of The Aztec Love God. His book, The Tip of the Pyramid: Cultivating Community Cultural Capital, is the first in his series on Community Organizing.

Ep. 168 features Chase Hall's (b. 1993, St. Paul, Minnesota). His paintings and sculptures respond to generational celebrations and traumas encoded throughout American history. Responding to a variety of social and visual systems, each of which intersects with complex trajectories of race, hybridity, economics, and personal agency, Hall generates images whose materiality is as crucial to their compositional makeup as their indelible approach to representation. A central body of paintings, made with drip-brew techniques derived from coffee beans and acrylic pigments on cotton supports, is notable for both its conceptual scope and its intimacy. The use of brewed coffee carries powerful symbolic weight since it evokes centuries-old geopolitical systems associated with the commodification of a plant native to Africa, but in Hall's hands, it also becomes a means of achieving subtle visual textures, a range of brown skin tones, and a mark-making vocabulary precipitated on the closeness of touch. Above all, however, it is his improvisational willingness to immerse himself in the indefinable personal hieroglyphics of each picture that gives his work its resonance and impact. Chase Hall was the subject of a solo exhibition at the SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia in 2023. In 2022, Hall was commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera to produce a large-scale artwork, the monumental diptych Medea Act I & II, for its opera house in New York, on view through June 2023. Hall has been included in group exhibitions including Together in Time: Selections from the Hammer Contemporary Collection, Hammer Museum (2023), Los Angeles; Black American Portraits, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2021); Young, Gifted and Black: The Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art, University of Illinois Chicago (2021); and This Is America | Art USA Today, Kunsthal KAdE, Amersfoort, the Netherlands. Hall has been an artist-in-residence at The Mountain School of Arts, Los Angeles; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), North Adams, Massachusetts; and Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture, Maine. Hall's work is in the permanent collections of institutions including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Dallas Museum of Art; Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami; Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris; Baltimore Museum of Art; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; High Museum of Art, Atlanta; Montreal Museum of Fine Arts; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Led by Dirk Allgaier, Arnoldsche is the go-to source for anyone who wants to learn more about the decorative and applied arts, the people who create them, and the museums that exhibit them. Dirk joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about how he selects the 10 to 15 books Arnoldsche publishes each year; how he works with artists to create a beautiful and informative book; and why a language barrier doesn't always prevent someone from reading an art book. Read the episode transcript here. Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is the first part of a two-part episode. Please make sure you subscribe so you can hear part two as soon as it's released later this week. My guest is Dirk Allgaier of Arnoldsche Publishing. They're art publishers, and if you have any kind of design library—and that includes jewelry, ceramics, monographs on artists, furniture and more—you no doubt have books that have been published by Arnoldsche. As I was browsing the books online, I kept seeing so many books I have that I didn't know were published by Arnoldsche. For the most part, they are in English and German, and the books are beautifully printed. Dirk will tell us how his path took him to where he is today. Dirk, welcome to the program. Dirk: Thank you very much, Sharon. Very glad to be here. Sharon: I'm so glad to have you here. Dirk was just telling me that he has lived in Stuttgart for 30 years, 25 years, a long time. Can you tell us what a publisher does? Dirk: That's a very good question, Sharon. There's really a lot to it. I tried to explain to you some things, to tell you about some things. Mainly it is my job to see that we put together an attractive book program every six months, every half-year. This is in the field of applied arts, which is our main series of books. It's jewelry, ceramics, textiles, wood and glass, but also the areas of visual design, of the visual arts and design. I receive many book proposals. I have to check them. I have to calculate them, but I've also got to be active by myself from my side, and I have to talk to artists. I have to meet museum curators. For example, I go to museums, to exhibition openings. I go to Schmuck in Munich, so I'm really traveling a lot. I visit all these places. You also have to be in the field where our publishing areas are, in the field of jewelry, of ceramics. I have to be there; I have to be active. In parallel, we have to put out used books. We have 10, 15 books always in parallel production, and we have to approach miniatures. The production is supervised by the project managers, but I'm integrated into the processes of each book because I have to know the exact starters of every book project. I must be approachable by the artist, by the museum curator, by the director if any problem arises or if important decisions have to be made. So, one part is traveling; the other part is production. I'm also responsible for sales and marketing. We have a colleague who does this, but I also have to look at how things can be optimized, how we can sell the books in the best way internationally. Unfortunately, a lot of administrative tasks have to be done. They are also very extensive. Finally, I write some articles for newspapers, for magazines. I give talks. I hold speeches for exhibition openings. I attend meetings, or I'm speaking for podcasts like now. This is also a very interesting and exciting part of my role as a publisher. All in all, there's a lot of work, enough work to work for at least seven days a week. Sharon: Are you saying that right this minute, there are 10 to 15 books that are being worked on? Dirk: Yes, that's it. About 10 to 15 books are always in production parallel, in the different steps of production. Either we are actually starting the editing, or we are preparing the design, or we are doing translations, or we are doing the color separations. Today, the Schmuckmuseum of Pforzheim curator was here. We're doing a new book about jewelry and metalwork, and we checked the colors. We checked the color proofs today. We discussed the cover. There are always a lot of book productions in parallel here at Arnoldsche. Sharon: This is something that is just occurring to me. Do they have input? If they don't like the color, can they say to you they don't like the color? Dirk: That's very important. I try to show everything to my partner, to the museum or to the artist. I show them the design concept of the book so we are not only designing the book. Before we start with the real design, we make some tests on pages, and we send the pages to the artist or to the museum. We say, “Oh, look, the book could look like these pages. Here is a type that's the kind of like the images. The captions are like that. We have some special colors.” Then the museum can say, “Oh, I like it. Please continue,” or “Oh no, I want to have a different kind.” This is very important for me in the production, to work as closely as possible together with the museum or the author. Sharon: Can the museum come and say, “I had something totally different in mind”? Can whoever is working on the book say they had something else in mind? Dirk: Yes, they can say it. Usually, we get a briefing and the museum tells me, “Oh, I want a very modern book,” or “Very conservative,” or “I have some crazy ideas.” But it must fit to the topics; that's very important. We publish books about 18th century arts and crafts, about porcelain from the 18th and 19th centuries. Here's a design that has to be quite conventional, or conservative is a better word. But if we work with a very unusual, contemporary designer, we can be much more provocative and contemporary in the design. Sharon: How did you come to publishing art and applied design books? Do you have a background in it? Dirk: Yes, I'll tell you shortly the story of the company. Arnoldsche, our publishing house, was founded in 1985. This is now almost 40 years ago. The founder of the publishing house—he passed away five years ago—his name was Dieter Zühlsdorff. He had previously, back in the 1970s, lived here in Stuttgart. He had a gallery for fine arts, for paintings, but his real passion was not the fine arts; it was ceramics. In the late 70s, early 80s, he closed the gallery and wrote an encyclopedia of ceramic marks. He traveled throughout Europe. There was no email, no websites. Maybe a fax machine was the most modern technical thing. He traveled for five years and wrote the “Ceramic Marks Encyclopedia” on the Art Nouveau and Art Deco period from 1880 to 1930. When the manuscript was finished, he went in search of a publisher. He didn't plan to found a publishing house, but no publisher wanted to publish his “Ceramic Marks Encyclopedia,” so he was not sure what to do. He sold a painting from his collection to a large bank in Germany. He used this money to print his “Ceramic Marks Encyclopedia,” and that was the beginning of Arnoldsche Art Publishers. That encyclopedia became a best seller in a total of four editions. The name Arnoldsche comes from his wife at the time. She's living. Her name is Gabriela Arnold; Arnold is her last name. Arnoldsche is still a little bit complicated for English speakers. Here, Arnoldsche sounds much better in German than Zühlsdorff, which was the last name of the founder. That's a Pomeranian name, very complicated. I think the English people would not be able to pronounce that name. So, we decided on Arnoldsche, and in German, we say Verlaganstadt. Verlaganstadt means publishing house. That sounds a little bit old-fashioned, but I like that old-fashioned name. In English we say Arnoldsche Art Publishers. Dieter Zühlsdorff, he acted very wisely when he founded the company because he realized there were many publishers in the area of fine arts or architecture, but there was no publishing house that explicitly dealt with the applied arts, with jewelry, ceramics, glass and furniture. So, we can say internationally, Arnoldsche is the only publishing house in the world that focuses on jewelry, ceramics, glass and textile, and we realized a lot of publications in that field. Sharon: Did you have a background in it? Dirk: I'm a trained archaeologist. I'm not an art historian. I studied archaeology. I made my degree. I like it very much, but artistry has fascinated me from a very young age. When I was a child, I went with my parents to see museums, to meet artists. My parents had a collection of paintings. When I completed my studies, I did a separate training course to become a publishing house clerk. This training course lasted one year. It included a three-month internship in a publishing house, and you had to take care of this internship by yourself. I had no idea where to apply. I was in Stuttgart, and I had a friend who was a bookseller. She gave me a recommendation. She told me, “Apply to a small art publishing house here in Stuttgart. They make the most beautiful books, and they are just around the corner from the place where you have the training.” She was speaking about Arnoldsche. So, I went there about 30 years ago, in 1993, and I got the job for a three-month internship at Arnoldsche. It started for three months, and now I'm working for 30 years at Arnoldsche. I'm very grateful to my friend for her recommendation. We still meet regularly even though she now lives in northern Germany. I'm very thankful to her for recommending me. “Go to Arnoldsche, ring the bell and apply for a job.” I did that 30 years ago. Sharon: Wow! Like you said, you must be approached all the time by people who have ideas and say, “Why don't you do a book on this?” or “I have all this material on that.” How do you decide which books to do? Dirk: That's always a difficult decision because we receive a lot of proposals for book productions. For one thing—and I think that's very important—the book has to fit in our program. For example, a book about the photography of the Alps or about Renaissance art would not fit well in our program. For us, it's very important to find new topics; in other words, topics that have not been published before. It makes no sense for us to publish a 50s book about Picasso or about Matisse; that's not our interest. There has to be a market for a book. It has to be saleable. We have to publish books about artists who have worked for many decades in their fields. Also, younger artists come to me. They're in their late 30s or their 40s, and they ask for a book. I often say, “Wait another 10 years. You need a bigger work of art, a mature work, and then you can come back to me and we can think about a book.” Very important art books on the theme of jewelry are the books about the great masters of jewelry. These are really important publications. Just to name a few, for example, Otto Künzli, the Swiss artist, Bernhard Schobinger, Manfred Bischoff. Last year, we published a book about Joyce Scott, the American artist, and the Israeli artist Deganit Stern Schocken, Therese Hilbert. Here, a large body of work over many decades can be wonderfully presented in a beautiful book form. That's really exciting. There are publications on collections of contemporary jewelry. This is also very important. These are mainly museum collections. For example, we have published about the jewelry collection of Eva and Peter Herion in Munich, which you can see when you go down to the basement. It's a major publication about the collection of the jewelry museum in Pforzheim, the Schmuckmuseum. We did it in 1998 with the legendary former director, Fritz Falk. There's the GRASSI Museum in Leipzig, a very important museum in East Germany. There's a very traditional collection and there's a collection of jewelry. They started to collect in the 1920s. We did a book about the jewelry collection of Sylvia Seal and of Art and Design in New York also. These collections are very exciting for us. I do not want to forget to mention the legendary publication by Helen Drutt, “Ornament as Art.” It's about her collection, which is now in the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. People call that book the “orange book” or the “Bible of jewelry books.” I think you know that book. What's also very important for us are theory books about jewelry. We have a book on the jewelry of Marjan Unger from the Netherlands. She did the book “Jewelry in Context.” These books are very important for students, for example. They are quite affordable in price. They're 15 Euros, so students buy these theory books. If you come to Arnoldsche, there's finally one topic that is very important because it's the most elementary, because every book can't be one: special books. We are publishing in a niche; it's a real niche, and the quantity of books, the editions, are not so high. Every book needs special financial support, so we ask for financial support from foundations. The potential sales is low compared to the very high cost of distribution. You do not usually recoup the high production cost. So, museums, collectors, foundations themselves make books financially possible in the first place through a corresponding purchased quantity. That is how a book can be realized through financial support; by purchasing books in advance. A special part will be paid by Arnoldsche and for the other part, we look for sponsors or our foundations to financially support it. These are the different things to consider for Arnoldsche book publishing. Sharon: When you are out and about—let's say you're traveling—do you find exhibits that you didn't know about or things you can approach people about? Dirk: Yes, I go to exhibition openings. Of course, I go to Schmuck in Munich, a big Schmuck event. I go to Munich, to exhibition openings. I go to Norway, to Switzerland, and I always meet the artists. I also meet authors and they tell me, “Oh, I'm working on a project. I'm working with this artist or with that museum. They are looking for a publisher. Would you mind if I make a contact?” For me, it's very important to visit these places, to go to openings, to meet curators because we are like a big family. Everybody knows something and people speak with each other. They say, “Here's a project. There is a book. It's planned to be an exhibition. They are looking for a publisher. They are planning a book for next year,” and I say, “O.K., please, if you can make a connection and the person can contact me.” Then we are discussing the possibility of collaboration for the book project. Sharon: Do they come with photographs or do you say, “I want to photograph this”? Dirk: For me, it's important to have an exposé, a short summary of the book. What is in the book, what is the sense of the book, whom do I want to reach with the book, who is the audience? And to send me some photographs, some preliminary information to get an idea of how the book will be, what the topic of the book is. That's enough for me, and then we continue our discussion. Sharon: Do you or your production assistants decide the cover of the book and what it will look like? Who decides? Dirk: We have freelance designers. We work together, but often artists or jewelers or ceramic artists who are planning a monograph about their work, they bring their own graphic designers with them. That's often fine with me because the collaboration between artist and designer is very intensive, and artists and designers should work together personally as often as possible. Often at Arnoldsche, we are responsible for the design, but always in collaboration with the artist. We have a graphic designer. We've worked together with her for almost 13 years. She designs many of our books and many artists know her. They come to us. They say, “We're planning a book, but we want to have this designer. We trust this designer.” There are artists who give us the whole material. They give us the photographs and the text, then they make a book and she makes a design. We show it before printing and they say, “Oh, make this little change. Oh, make that little change. Go to the press.” There are other artists who look very carefully, who ask for changes, but every one is absolutely fine for us. We love to work together with her. She designed the book on Helen Drutt for “Ornament as Art,” the orange book, but she also designed important jewelry monographs; for example, the book on Sam Kramer, a jewelry designer. She did the book about Giampaolo Babetto, about Fritz Maierhofer from Austria, about Georg Dobler or Claus Bury, two famous German designers. Usually, we say if a graphic designer designs the inside pages of a book, they also have to design the cover. The inside pages and cover have to be in accordance with each other. It should fit to each other. That's very important, to have one designer for the whole book. A designer is also like an artist in a way. You cannot ask an artist to make this part and another artist makes this part. The whole book has to be in the hands of one designer. Sharon: We will have photos posted on the website.
