Harvey Kurtzman: The Man Who Created MAD and Revolutionized Humor in America - Cover

Harvey Kurtzman created MAD, and thus was the road to our modern era of parody and satire paved. From MAD to EC Comics to Playboy, Kurtzman's expansive body of work has made its indelible mark on American culture and humor. Harvey Kurtzman: The Man Who Created MAD and Revolutionized Humor in America is a heavily researched biography by Bill Schelly, in which we are treated to a fuller glimpse into the life and times of this influential man, including extensive interviews with colleagues, friends, and family, and an examination of Kurtzman's personal archives.

Here is our finalized cover design, featuring the impish, toothy grin of Alfred E. Neuman—the iconic, fictitious mascot of MAD magazine. The Man Who Created MAD is due out in April, so don't delay—get your pre-order placed now!

Invitation to Openness: The Jazz & Soul Photography of Les McCann 1960-1980 - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsPat ThomasLes McCannComing AttractionsAlan Abrahams 3 Feb 2015 1:00 PM

Jazz erupted onto the American music landscape in the 1900s, evolving rapidly and spreading internationally like wildfire. Les McCann, an American soul jazz musician whose first major album Swiss Movement was a huge Billboard pop chart success, always had a 35mm camera close at hand to capture candids of dozens of jazz artists, both on stage and off. This never-before-seen treasure trove of images provides a unique insider's perspective into the world of jazz and is collected here in Invitation to Openness: The Jazz & Soul Photography of Les McCann 1960-1980.

Curated by Pat Thomas and Alan Abrahams, Invitation to Openness includes a foreword by A. Scott Galloway, an interview with McCann, and plenty of additional commentary, footnotes, and captions besides. We've included the full foreword, the first two pages of Thomas' interview, and a half dozen examples of McCann's photography in our 19-page downloadable excerpt.

Read the full excerpt here (perhaps with Swiss Movement playing in the background?), then head on over to the book page to pre-order this beautiful, oversized coffeetable art book. Invitation to Openness is due out by March, so look for more previews in the coming weeks!
