Featuring stunning design and production, not to mention inspiring and thought-provoking content, this exhibition catalogue for the 17th Biennale of Sydney is an artwork in itself! If you can’t make it to the Biennale in person, this is the next best thing, and if you are lucky enough to experience the art up close, it’ll make for the perfect memento.

Thames & Hudson, $65

New Ornamental Type presents a dazzling kaleidoscope of highly animated text and type samples across a broad spectrum of styles and effects. Psychedelia, Hip-Hop, Gothic, flowers, smoke, hair, electricity and monuments are just a few of the creative allusions in the hundreds of dramatic and intricate examples inspired by nature, history and just about anything that is visually expressive. The book begins with a historical outline of ornament and its evolution through the major creative periods from the beginnings of the 20th century to the present. The heart of the book contains hundreds of contemporary examples from around the world, organised into three sections, each with a brief essay introducing the background, influences and outstanding aspects of the graphic works.
