$19.99
More Info
A comprehensive reference work for print and art collectors, dealers in prints and illustrated books and people interested in graphic art with no previous knowledge on the subject.

How You Look at It; Photographs of the 20th Century (USED)

$19.99
More Info
Eugène Atget's Parisian storefronts paired with Thomas Struth's desolate views of Wall Street; Charles Sheeler's studies of Ford Motor Plant contrasted with Bernd and Hilda Becher's Blast Furnace series; Walker Evans' sharecroppers alongside Rineke Djikstra's troubled late-twentieth-century teens. These are just some of the surprising and delightful editorial matches to be found in How You Look At It: Photographs of the Twentieth Century. Intelligently and carefully edited by Thomas Weski and Heinz Liesbrock, this superb volume makes an argument for photography as the definitive art form of the twentieth century by presenting whole series of works by the medium's pioneers, instead of isolated individual photographs. Arranged thematically rather chronologically, the connections between seemingly disparate bodies of work are made clear. Cindy Sherman's early film stills sit easily across the page from Lee Friedlander's sly shadow self portraits; Robert Adams' desolate suburban sprawls lead a path to Larry Clark's strung-out dopers in Tulsa several pages later. Interspersed throughout the book are reproductions of relevant art piecesso that a Mark Rothko painting flanks a piece of Robert Frank's The Americans and Christian Boltanski's L'album de la famille introduces Nicholas Nixon's The Brown Sisters. Published to accompany the exhibition of the same name, How You Look At It is a comprehensive and unprecedented look at the century of photography.

Information Graphics and Visual Cues (USED)

$19.99
More Info
Certain visual images scream their message to us loud and clear: a stop sign, a skull-and-crossbones, a handicapped parking sticker. The ability to take ideas and information and create visuals that allow us to "read" them is perhaps the most basic and difficult skill of the graphic designer.

Information Graphics and Visual Clues argues that this way of seeing and creating is one that is part innate and part learned -- and that without it, even the most technologically sophisticated designer is merely a technician. Through stunning visual images and highly accessible descriptions, the book explains the theory behind this type of visual "translation, " walks the reader through examples of graphics ranging from signs and logos to advertising, packaging, and events publicity, and explains how each image was conceived and why it succeeds.

With its vivid focus on how to actually convey ideas, this hands-on book shows how designers of every type or style of graphic work can become skilled visual translators.

Nothing Obvious (USED)

$12.99
More Info
A woman in a space, all by herself, encountering the ever-shifting boundaries between outside and inside, flesh and soul, present and past -- Ornela Vorpsi's photographs trace experiences of interior spaces, as seen from the outside, with a rare sensual precision. At a time when the faux-casualness of snapshot aesthetics has become the hallmark of authenticity, Vorpsi draws on her knowledge of painting and performance art to create intense tableaux -- erotic, existential, and pure. Vorpsi uses great skill to lay bare emotional abysses and intensities that few have the courage to face. Lush colors and harsh blacks and whites, the body's physicality and the inquiring mind's restlessness: Vorpsi seamlessly incorporates these apparent contradictions in her work, leading the viewer into a labyrinth of torments and desires. Vorpsi's use of photography and new media is not guided by the will to create yet just another cheap thrill. Her truly new and unique images, firmly grounded in her familiarity with art history, force us to face up to the erotic and spiritual crises of today.

Painting Chinese (USED)

$5.99
More Info

As Herbert Kohl approached seventy, he realized the image he had of himself (energetic man in midlife) was not in keeping with how he was viewed by others (wise grandfather figure). To counter the realization that he was growing old, Kohl, a staunch believer in lifelong learning, set out to try something new. While on a walk, he happened upon a painting studio and on a lark signed up for a beginning class. When Kohl arrived for his first lesson, he was surprised to see the students were Chinese children between the ages of four and seven.

Now, after three years of study, Kohl tells us what he learned from them. He shares the joys of trying to stay as fresh and unafraid as his young classmates and the wisdom he unexpectedly discovers in the formal tenets of Chinese landscape painting. As he advances into classes with older students, he reflects on how this experience allows him to accept and find comfort in aging. For anyone who feels stuck in the wearying repetition of everyday life, Kohl's adventures will clearly illustrate that you can never be too old to grow from new experiences.

Peasants Warriors and Wives; Popular Imagery in the Reformation (USED)

$6.99
More Info
In "Peasants, Warriors, and Wives," Keith Moxey examines woodcut images from the German Reformation that have often been ignored as a crude and inferior form of artistic production. In this richly illustrated study, Moxey argues that while they may not satisfy received notions of "art," they nevertheless constitute an important dimension of the visual culture of the period. Far from being manifestations of universal public opinion, as a cursory acquaintance with their subject matter might suggest, such prints were the means by which the reformed attitudes of the middle and upper classes were disseminated to a broad popular audience.

People around the world have fallen in love with Penguin the Magpie, a global social media sensation, and her adventures with her human family. But there is far more to Penguin's story than meets the eye. It all begins when Sam, Cameron Bloom's wife, suffers a near fatal fall that leaves her paralyzed and deeply depressed. One of their three sons, reeling from the tragic accident, discovers an injured magpie chick abandoned after she had fallen from her nest. The boys name the bird Penguin, for her black-and-white plumage. As they nurse Penguin back to health, the incredible joy, playfulness, and strength she exudes fortify the family and especially lift Sam's spirits. Penguin's resilience demonstrates that, however bleak things may seem, compassion, friendship, and support can come from unexpected places ensuring there will always be better days ahead. This plucky little magpie reminds us all that, no matter how lost, fragile, or damaged we feel, accepting the love of others and loving them in return will help to make us whole.
