DARK ENTRIES
BRIAN CUNNINGHAM

FROM WIKIPEDIA: Dark wave is a music genre that emerged from the new wave and post-punk movement of the late 1970s. Dark wave compositions are largely based on minor key tonality and introspective lyrics, and have been perceived as being dark, romantic, and bleak, with an undertone of sorrow.

PLASTIQUE
COURRÈGES

Courrèges is the futuristic clothing label started by French designer André Courrèges in 1961. Known for all things mod and spacey (for example, the "little white dress", go-go boots and that classic crinkle vinyl suit in array of colors), this modernist designer is someone that we have worshipped and collected for over 20 years.

RICHARD BERNSTEIN
STARMAKER

Richard Bernstein, a fixture with fashion and art insiders as well as the Studio 54 set, captured the allure of the disco era through his iconic hyper-colored graphic portraits of superstars for the covers of Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. Bernstein’s bold and graphic artwork was so complimentary to Warhol’s that it was often thought that Warhol created the covers himself.

PICTURES & WORDS
SCOTT EWALT

Pictures & Words is the seventh in a series of artist books published by STH editions. When they contacted me and showed me the previous books, I decided to take a slightly less serious approach to mine. I was inspired by burlesque pitch books, mid-century flip books, Andy Warhol's Index and Chris Makos' White Trash.

A favorite time period of ours, the late 70s to early 80s proved to be so creative and expressive, from the punk movement to the birth of new wave.
