Описание: Although their career with their wild and unpredictable frontman lasted barely six years, The Doors are one of the most mind-blowing bands in rock history. Formed in Los Angeles in 1965 by UCLA film school acquaintances Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, the band became famous for a sound driven by powerful keyboards and haunting, stream-of-consciousness lyrics. Rounded out by guitarist Robbie Krieger and drummer John Densmore, the quartet released a string of six highly successful studio albums. Jim Morrison's death at age 27 didn't stop him or the band from joining the rock world's pantheon.
The Doors: The Illustrated History is an extensive, chronological examination of the band's career with Morrison - a period which, though brief, suffers no shortage of tales and anecdotes - as well as their short stint as a trio post-Morrison and their more recent collaborations with the likes of Ian Astbury, Perry Farrell, Scott Weiland, and Skrillex. Candid concert images, revealing offstage photographs, and images of memorabilia like picture sleeves, gig posters, ticket stubs, buttons, and more comprise over 250 illustrations. A roster of respected music journalists' insightful analyses of each of the band's studio releases completes this in-depth, up-close look at this intense group of musicians and the legendary music they created. No fan will want to miss it!
Описание: The Steampunk User's Manual features beautiful images and entertaining text about the incredibly popular Science Fiction subgenre that imagines future technology and fashion via a 19th century perspective and toolbox. The Steampunk User's Manual provides a conceptual how-to guide across all aspects of Steampunk that motivates and awes both the armchair enthusiast and the committed creator. The idea here is to give readers points of reference that are both refreshingly down-to-earth and completely over-the-top--that utterly doable jewellery project juxtaposed with that stunningly crazy and jaw-dropping art installation. The book features sections on fashion, art, crafts, music, large-scale installations, fiction, filmmaking, etc. By combining the functional and the delightfully out-there, The Steampunk User's Manual not only satisfies readers--it also entertains and inspires them at a very high level and provides an updated look at the world of Steampunk, which has already changed since the publication of The Steampunk Bible.
