Hairdos of Defiance by Ed Templeton
Hardcover, 6.75 x 9 inches, 68 pages. Edition of 1500
Hairdos of Defiance is a look into a microcosm of a fringe world, one where individuals engage in the act of retreat or refusal as a generative form of identity-making. Eschewing perfection for style, progenitors of the punk scene adopted the radical alterations of their bodies to signify their displeasure. Offensively deviant, the Mohawk evolved as a style dependent on social context and determined by the historical moment; purposely assumed, it is both a mask and an act of masking.

Yumi Sakugawa - I Think I Am in Friend-Love with You
Hardcover, 128 pages, measures 6.5 x 5.9.
I have a confession to make.
I think I am in friend-love with you.
What's friend-love? It's that super-awesome bond you share with someone who makes you happy every time you text each other, or meet up for an epic outing. It's not love-love. You don't want to swap saliva; you want to swap favorite books. But it's just as intense and just as amazing.
And it's this search for that connection that comic-book artist Yumi Sakugawa captures in I Think I am in Friend-Love with You. It's perfect if you've ever fallen in friend-love and want to show that person how much you love them...in a platonic way, of course.
