Irving Zucker Art Books was established in 1942, initially catering to advertising artists, typographers, universities, public and private libraries and of course, private collectors. In the late 1950s, Irving Zucker expanded the rare book business to include modern master illustrated books by artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Chagall, Braque, Rouault, Leger and more. 
Zucker Art Books
was created by Irving's Grandson, Matthew Zucker in 2006 with the publication of Dieter Roth INPRINT Artists Books, although with one foot in antiquarian books the other was moving more into contemporary books, publishing artists projects  and multiples.

One color plate and 93 documents (reproduced in facsimile in the collotype printing plants of Vigier et Brunissen, Paris) boxed in a green suede-covered box. Numbered 265 of an edition of 300 copies. Signed and dated in orange inside box spine. 13 x 11 x 1”. From 1987-93 Bustamante started a new series, 'Lumières', which are large black and white photographs, silkscreened onto plexiglass, and hung with four metallic hooks which maintain the image at a distance of about 10cm from the wall. The effect obtained is that the image is both projected onto the wall and reflected in the plexiglass - hence disturbing the viewer's vision. The viewer is confronted with an inderterminate space which cannot be focused on properly. In the most recent series 'Aérogrammes'(1997) and 'Panoramas'(1998) the artist begins to explore a similar effect of uncertainty between space and surface - architecture and photography - with monochromatic colours and drawing. Black squares (with Russian, German, and English text) is a compilation of drawings made by Helms' friends, where he had asked them to make a note on the imagination of Malevich's Black Square.
