Описание: Dating from 1917 to the end of the Cold War, the posters in this book feature the work of groundbreaking Russian artists such as El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko, as well as extraordinary anonymous work. Presented in full colour and printed on heavy paper in a large-format, the posters gathered here represent the pinnacle of Russian avant-garde design from the 20th century. They range in theme from the dangers of alcohol abuse and the creeping Nazi menace to illustrations of utopian harmony and the Soviet industrial machine. A special feature of this book allows for the removal of the posters for display or framing. A brief introduction offers a chronological overview of the period that produced such eloquent art, which has long been a major source of inspiration to artists and designers alike.

Описание: Interior designers and architects worldwide are using new concepts to make going to a restaurant a multisensory experience. Eating is more than a basic physical process. It is a social, aesthetic, and cultural need. We go out to meet friends or business partners, to try a new culinary trend, to relax in the familiarity of our favorite restaurant, or to revel in the multisensory experience of the latest tasting temple. It is always about more than just eating and drinking. We seek dramaturgy, emotion, and adventure. Atmosphere makes a difference and we increasingly want it to be all-consuming. Let s Go Out Again is an eclectic showcase of atmospheric eating spaces from around the world from New York, London, and Berlin to Haifa, Sydney, and Hong Kong. The featured projects represent state-of-the-art collaborations among architects, artists, designers, restaurateurs, and chefs that target not only all of our senses, but our identities and values too. Whether clean sculptural lines, mirrored facades, old industrial fittings, or cozy retro furnishings, Let s Go Out Again shows how interior designers combine at times unusual ingredients to arrive at a tasteful setting for a range of culinary tastes and occasions. The book is comprised of six chapters, each of which exemplifies an aesthetic and conceptual point of view: Understatement, Modern Musings, Rough and Local, Progressive, Graphic Spaces, and Dramatic. Each of these approaches goes beyond the visual to buoy and amplify the philosophies of the kitchens or bars that they help define. The result is a congenial synergy between flavor and atmosphere, place and taste.

Описание: Finland is a country of stark contrasts between nature and high-tech, tradition and unpredictability. It is known for its impressive school system and breathtaking lakes and forests, but also for its love of sauna taking, air guitar playing, and lots of coffee drinking. Its culture and a strong craft tradition have brought up some of the world’s most impressive designs, designers, and design-related brands.
Out of the Blue showcases Finland’s unique design culture from legendary figures like Alvar Aalto and heritage manufacturers such as Marimekko, Iittala, Artek, or Nokia to a new contemporary generation of chefs, explorers, makers, and entrepreneurs. The book takes an insightful and entertaining look at the typical Finnish characteristics of inventiveness, community spirit, love of liberty, ongoing transformation, and the free rein to be wacky.

Описание: Numerous designers have pioneered cutting-edge garments and collections throughout the evolution of fashion. But all too often a lack of obvious fit or purpose has been mistaken for a lack of design sophistication. In an informed defence of innovative fashion, Why You Can Go Out Dressed Like That champions the improbable, the provocative, the uncomfortable and the seemingly ridiculous. Inspired by diverse sources, theories and concepts, as well as futuristic textiles and techniques, the book explores the groundbreaking work of designers who strive to extend the boundaries of their creativity. There are no fixed elements to the 100 designs featured in this book, which range from the cerebral conceptions of Comme des Garcons, to the augmented anatomies of Thierry Mugler and the exaggerated physicality of Thom Brownes broad-shouldered men. The garments do not have to fulfil a function, keep you warm, or increase sexual attraction, nor do they have to beguile or disarm. They do need to have impact at the time of creation and to prove influential in the longer term. Many original designs elicit the response: You cant go out dressed like that!. Marnie Fogg proves decisively that modern fashion is not as outrageous and unwearable as it may seem.
Описание: This book explores images whose sexual content has all too often been either ignored or denied. Each chapter is devoted to a place that artists associated with sexual activity or desire: the bed, the dressing area of the home, the window and doorway, the bath, and the street. By examining both canonical works, such as Jan van Eyck's "Arnolfini Portrait" and Petrus Christus' "Goldsmith's Shop" and long-neglected objects, such as combs, badges and bathhouse murals, and by investigating a wide range of subjects - same-sex desire, adultery, marriage, courtship, and prostitution - Diane Wolfthal demonstrates how illicit forms of sexuality were linked to the 'chaste sexuality' of marriage. Wofthal shows how both church and state attempted to regulate sexual conduct, and she examines those sources not only that reinforced this way of thinking, but also that resisted or subverted it. The insistence that sexual intercourse be confined to marriage, performed in a particular way and reserved for purposes of procreation is shown to be subverted and undermined both in the imagery produced around the subject, and in the reality itself.

Описание: Everyone knows a Feiffer illustration when they see one: simple, black lines depict images of dancers leaping across the page, characters argue back and forth, or an exasperated expression belies psychological insight. How such images became iconic and the story of Feiffer's artistic influence is explored in Out of Line: The Art of Jules Feiffer, the first illustrated biography of this celebrated artist. Over Feiffer's prolific seventy year career, his work has displayed a remarkable ability to move between biting satire about politics, love, marriage and religion, and the hopeful, fanciful and sometimes frightened perspective of a child. Feiffer's varied career began when he worked as assistant to the comic artist Will Eisner and later developed his own style to encompass many different mediums, including children's books (The Phantom Tollbooth), plays (Little Murders), movies (Carnal Knowledge and Popeye) and comic strips (most notably in the Village Voice for 42 years). Feiffer has written numerous children's books, plays and comic strips. His extraordinary career has been celebrated with such awards as an Academy Award for Best Short Subject Cartoon (1961), the Special George Polk Memorial Award (1961), a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning (1986) and the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award (2003), among many others. Out of Line: The Art of Jules Feiffer is a long awaited overview of Feiffer's career, providing a revealing glimpse into Feiffer's creative process, and his role as America's foremost Renaissance man of the arts.
