At 16, I landed in the class of Mrs. Johnston, a talented but demanding high-school English teacher at St. Mary’s Catholic High in New Jersey. All I’d known of Mrs. Johnston is that she was very attractive and rather demanding. I could not have known that she’d influence the rest of my life. After a week of forty literary terms Mrs. Johnston assigned (onomatopoeia, alliteration, and others I still remember), Mrs. Johnston assigned The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, a 700+ page novel I had no intention of reading. By Monday, I’d completed The Fountainhead (scoring 100 on my test) and knew that I was on the verge of a lifetime of meaning. I started reading Atlas Shrugged the next day. Within a few months, I’d collected paperback editions of all Rand titles and all back issues of Objectivist periodicals. A few months later, I met Ayn Rand after a talk she gave in Boston, where she signed my copy of one newsletter in her own pen, the Pen Ultimate.
Since that time, I have collected Ayn Rand First Editions, books and other materials Inscribed by Ayn Rand, books favorably reviewed or recommended in her publications and journals. Address: 201 W 21st St, New York, NY 10011
49. PowerHouse Books
PowerHouse Books, world-renowned and critically acclaimed publisher, is best known for a diverse publishing program—specialized in fine art, documentary, pop culture, fashion, and celebrity books. We have blazed a trail through the staid book publishing industry, releasing books that have sparked cultural trends and redefined commonly held perceptions of the purpose and role of art books in contemporary culture. While much is known of our books, little is known of the people who have made powerHouse Books a global name. Founder and Publisher Daniel Power started powerHouse Books in 1995, and was joined by Craig Cohen in 1996. The early years had Power and Cohen tag-teaming on a few books at a time, raising the bar each season when, in 1998, powerHouse Books had its first best-seller, Women Before 10 A.M. by Véronique Vial. Power and Cohen followed up that success in 1999 with the critically-acclaimed cult monographs X-Ray, by François Nars, and Life is Paradise, by Francesco Clemente and Vincent Katz.
