New Titles from Thames & Hudson

Yesterday, I received the new catalog for Thames & Hudson.  Two titles caught my eye.

In Bookshelf, Alex Johnson explores creative structures to house book collections.  With 300+ color illustrations, there are plethora of examples.

I'm always drawn to the intersection of art + science, so Mathematics, A Beautiful Elsewhere is right up my alley.  In the book by Michael Casse & Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, the authors explore the pairing of 6 scientists with 4 contemporary artists.  The artist/scientist collaboration produced "specially and aesthetically designed ways to exhibit mathematics," unveiling "the beauty and visionary insights of this discipline."  Reads like delicious infographics to me.
