Prince Eugen's World of Flowers & 100th anniversary of Waldermarsudde flowerpot
A+O Publishing is pleased to announce the English release of Prince Eugen's World of Flowers. The book's arrival coincides with the centenary of the iconic Waldemarsudde flowerpot and will debut at the unveiling of a special edition flowerpot to mark the special anniversary on April 16.
In this inspirational book, with eloquent photos by photographer Yanan li, a different story of Prince Eugen's paradise is told.

New Release: Contemporary Sami Art and Design
This book is the first international presentation of contemporary artists and designers in the Sápmi region, an area spanning northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and northwestern Russia. Sami traditions, both historically and from today, are inspirational sources for these contemporary artists and designers. This book presents works produced by 35 leading artists, both established and emerging – a reference book for anyone with an interest in expressions of contemporary art and design from Sápmi. Pre-order here.
New Release: Anton Alvarez – Thread Wrapping Machine
The book details the artist's development of a machine that spins thousands of metres of brightly coloured thread around pieces of wood and metal to join them, producing solid benches, stools and lamps. Most recently, this process has been expanded to include architectural installations like the kind exhibited at Gustavsbergs Konsthall. Edited by Julie Cirelli and with art direction by Aron Kulander-Östling, this beautiful clothbound limited edition book includes texts by UglyCute founder Andreas Nobel and legendary British artist and curator Richard Wentworth, with photography by Gustav Almestål, James Champion, Katrin Greiling, Paul Plews, Casper Sejersen, Vincent Skoglund and Märta Thisner.
