In the 1980s, heavy metal went mainstream. The dark themes and brain-busting riffage of bands like Black Sabbath and Deep Purple suddenly fell out of favor--replaced by a new legion of metalheads whose themes of girls, partying, girls, drugs, and girls were presented amid shredding solos and power ballads and who were, for some reason, more acceptable to the masses. In this ultimate guide to the subgenre, acclaimed heavy-metal journalist Martin Popoff examines hair metal in an all-encompassing oral history jacked up by a kaleidoscope of outrageous and previously unpublished quotes, anecdotes, photos, and memorabilia. The Big Book of Hair Metal features the observations of dozens of musicians, producers, promoters, label execs, and hanger-ons in examining hair metal's rise and fall as well as all the bands that kept Aqua Net in business through the Reagan recession: Twisted Sister, Bon Jovi, Poison, M tley Cr e, Ratt, Warrant, Great White, Whitesnake, Cinderella, Vixen, Skid Row, L.A. Guns, Guns N' Roses, and dozens more. In crafting a narrative of hair metal, Popoff also examines the factors that contributed to the movement's rise (including MTV, Reagan's "morning in America," and a general move toward prudish morals); the bands that inspired it (the Sweet, New York Dolls, Alice Cooper, and KISS, for a start); and the scenes that nurtured it (the Sunset Strip, anyone?). The ride finally ended circa 1991, when hair metal was replaced by grunge, but what a ride it was. Here it is in all of its primped-up glory.

Описание: A key painting among Rembrandt’s various works depicting the Passion story is the centerpiece of this absorbing volume that combines the latest scholarly findings and breathtaking reproductions.
Painted between the years 1632 and 1646, the Passion series is one of Rembrandt’s finest accomplishments. This volume investigates a work known as the »Entombment Sketch« — actually a beautiful finished painting, and the jewel of the Hunterian Art Gallery’s collection. Drawing from paint samples, new high-definition imagery, and other technical findings, this volume thoroughly explores the provenance of the painting. The authors also discuss Rembrandt’s own influences in creating the Passion series, including Leonardo, Caravaggio, Raphael, and Rubens, and compare the work with that of Rembrandt’s contemporaries.

Описание: A classic, indeed perhaps the best of the Mapplethorpe
books. And for many most certainly the 'most
typical' Mapplethorpe, now available once again
thanks to this re-edition.
The Black Book, first published in 1986, presents 96
formally stringent and highly erotic nudes, all of them
photographs of black men, either as full figures, or
staged as details, as fragments of their bodies.
Stylized as classical statues or provocatively in all
their presence and sensuous radiance. Black-andwhite
photography was Mapplethorpe's preferred
medium. And his obsessive aesthetics was based on
completely mastering it, as this enabled him to visualize
any number of tonal gradations and penetrate
deep into the very pores of the gleaming black skin.
It is a method that reached a climax in these images.
The Black Book, Mapplethorpe's homage to the black
male body, has always been one of the most important
Описание: Stephen Crafti has always been drawn to black houses, irrespective of the materials they are constructed in, be they zinc, timber or simply painted. Unlike most houses, which scream for attention, black houses sit quietly, accentuating the often-verdant landscape. There is also a sense of calm and tranquillity with a black home. Crafti doesn't live in a black house, but he recently upgraded a 1930's home. 'Everything I touched was changed to black, from the timber fences to the timber floorboards'. He even added black curtains and planted black bearded irises in his garden. Using black seemed to unify disparate elements in and around his home. While there are numerous black features in Crafti's home, his ideal scenario would be to live in a contemporary black house, with black furniture and black walls. And maybe even a garden filled with black plants. This book, showcasing black houses, is the starting point to this goal and will be organised according to the following themes: Black Exteriors; Living in Black; Details of Black; Kitchens & Dining in Black; and In Black And White.

Описание: Eco-Chic: The Fashion Paradox is a fascinating and pertinent examination of the relationship between fashion and environmental awareness. A new wave of sustainable shopping, affordable clothing, and ecological thinking has allowed eco-designers to create high-end, design-led collections rather than merely environmentally sympathetic garments. Eco-Chic aims to combat the preconceived idea of eco-fashion as a compromise in style and quality and place eco-fashion where it belongs, at the forefront of design. Leading academic Sandy Black's absorbing and extensive analysis of fashion and ethical practice exposes the naked truth behind the clothes we wear. Using case studies of designers including Katharine Hamnett, Marks and Spencer and Linda Loudermilk, Black illustrates how the fashion industry is changing to accommodate the environmental concerns of the twenty-first century.

Описание: Olaf Hajek is currently one of the world's most successful and well-known Illustrated bys. His work can be seen in publications including the New York Times and the Guardian, in advertisements for companies such as Bacardi and Daimler Benz, as well as on stamps for Great Britain's Royal Mail. Despite the diversity of his clientele, Hajek makes no aesthetic compromises. His characteristic style is what makes his work appealing to a broad audience and range of clients. Now his personal work is garnering increasing attention on the international art market. Hajek's colorful illustrations and textured paintings are infused with a folkloristic na*vete and freshness. Masterfully melding influences from West African and Latin American art, he creates surreal juxtapositions of fairytale fantasies and disordered realities. His "magical realism" enriches the perspective of anyone viewing his work. Black Antoinette is a collection of Olaf Hajek's most recent work that was created over the last three years. Consisting mostly of advertising and Edited byial contracts, commercial portraits, and fashion illustration, the examples in this book showcase a remarkable style that has become more free and painterly during this time. In his foreword, Philipp Demandt, the head of Berlin's Old National Gallery, positions Olaf Hajek at the nexus of the seemingly opposing realms of art and contract work.
