Shadow and Light, a book celebrating the reopening, is new this summer.  The Clark has a fantastic set of titles slated for upcoming publication, including Raw Color: The Circles of David Smith and Cast for Eternity: Ancient Ritual Bronzes from the Shanghai Museum.  Here’s a slideshow of some of their recent books:
