Art Books – There’s plenty of beautiful art books to liven up your living space. Today, Best Design Books decided to show you the best art books that marked 2019.   HENRY DARGER  Henry Darger was still very much an unbridled outsider when, in 1999, John Ashbery wrote a book-length poem called Girls on the Run (1999) in celebration of his strange and fantastical art. Newly available in a revised edition (first published in 2014), the substantial, landscape-format book by Klaus Biesenbach called nothing but Henry Darger shows it off with an almost cinematic degree of excess. Here come skipping along with those throngs of near-fairy-tale girls and boys, so sweet and so mock-innocent-looking until you pry into some of the more ominous detailing. One fact is undeniable: Alice would have found them interesting companions down the rabbit hole. LUCIAN FREUD HERBARIUM  No one has ever tried to deny that the libidinous artist Lucian Freud would have been an ominous prospect for most women. The year’s most intriguingly sidelong take on the painter is entitled Lucian Freud Herbarium.

Best Design Books: Amy Sillman: One Lump or Two

Accompanying a major museum retrospective of the acclaimed American painter, this book (published by Prestel) traces Amy Sillman’s diverse body of work that includes drawings, cartoons, paintings, and animated videos produced on an iPhone. From her early small-scale cartoon figures to her later enormous abstract paintings, Amy Sillman’s artistic vision shines through in this beautiful volume that covers the period from 1995 to the present. Filled with drawings, paintings, and ‘zines, as well as stills from the artist’s recent forays into animated films, the book traces the development of Sillman’s work from her early use of cartoon figures and a vivacious palette through her exploration of the diagrammatic line, the history of Abstract Expressionism, and a growing concern with the bodily and erotic dimensions of paint. This book also examines the importance of drawing in Sillman’s practice as well as the intensity with which she has embraced the dichotomy between figuration and abstraction. It celebrates her raw emotion, curiosity, erotic power, and humor. This book celebrates raw emotion, curiosity, erotic power, and humor of Amy Sillman’s work.
