4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Into the Sunset examines how photography has pictured, established and transformed the idea of the American West, from 1850 to the present.

Published to accompany a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Into the Sunset charts changing myths and cultural attitudes about the West through photographs dating from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries. An expansive and dynamic survey, it brings together photographers as diverse as Carleton E. Watkins and Stephen Shore, Darius Kinsey and Dorothea Lange, Robert Frank and Cindy Sherman, an unknown daguerreotypist and Richard Prince. More than 120 works are organized thematically to highlight the artists' differing views of the West's land and people

"In a series of intertwined narratives, Porcelain Stories explores porcelain's beginnings in China around A.D. 600, then follows its diverse developments as a new and fashionable commodity within China and throughout Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. The book recounts the ingenious achievements of Chinese porcelain and its worldwide impact through trade, where in the West, it spurred a mania for collecting and an urgent quest seeking the formula for and process of creating porcelain." "Cultural and stylistic interchange between East and West is the other main focus of these stories. They place porcelain objects in the context of their times and cultures, retracing porcelain's technological, aesthetic, and commercial evolution over twelve centuries."--Jacket
