Michelle KomiePublisher (Art, Architectural, & Urban History)
I publish original, ambitious projects that will resonate within art, architectural, and urban history and also speak to neighboring fields. My lists are not confined to specific geographies or time periods but are built around topics and histories that enable readers to better understand the place of visual and material cultures and the built environment in the world. I’m also interested in projects that take a creative approach to the work of practicing artists or architects in order to amplify voices and engage a wide readership. Recent and forthcoming titles include Twelve Caesars, by Mary Beard, The Obama Portraits by Taina Caragol et al., The One Hundred Circle Farm by Emmet Gowin, A City is Not a Computer, by Shannon Mattern, Africa’s Struggle for Its Art by Bénédicte Savoy, A History of Art History by Christopher S. Wood, and Chinese Art and Dynastic Time by Wu Hung.
