Описание: This first monograph on the work of Studio Job is designed by the studio, resulting in an extraordinary art object in a limited edition of 3,000 copies. The art objects and furniture developed by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel bring a romantic, and often monumental sensibility to contemporary industrial design. Celebrated in design and art fairs from Milan to Miami, the pair's creations--from sculpture to graphic design--have attracted a cult following and are in the permanent collections of important museums. Studio Job's work is drawn from an artistic tradition that combines everyday objects with grand historical themes. These inspirational sources have been harnessed to create an unprecedented, virtually hand-made volume that translates the process and product of these designers. The lavish package resembles a traditional, leather-bound bible, with hand-drawn illuminations of the entire Book of Job from the King James Bible. Themes present in the biblical Book of Job are echoed in the studio's project portfolio, translating the formal wit of Smeets and Tynagel's work in print. Enclosed in a foil stamped slipcase, each leather-bound edition features a signed bookplate, four gatefolds, two ribbon markers, and a foil stamped case with foil stamping on the interior. Photographs taken expressly for the book, accompanied by never-before-seen sketches from the designers' personal sketchbooks, provide rare insight into their particular approach to design and patternmaking and culminate in a rare achievement in book design.

Описание: Few artists have created as much controversy or survived it with greater fame than Edouard Manet. In his day, the avant-garde was not only a challenge to the traditions of art, but it was also a gunshot fired at society as a whole. With his painting Olympia (1869), Manet was to become, to quote Degas, “as famous as Garibaldi.” Yet how the urbane and diffident son of a bourgeois family became the father of both Realism and Impressionism is a complex and fascinating story that has too often been reduced to textbook cliches. As Manet has become recognized as a touchstone for historical change but also for interpretations of how that change came about, his individual story has become all the more relevant to the study of art history. Moreover, far from being an artists to shrink behind his work, one of Manet’s most characteristic practices was to leave an indelible trace of his own personal identity within his paintings, as illustrated throughout the volume by eminent scholar James H. Rubin. This lavishly illustrated volume is presented in a handsome box set, and offers a comprehensive and original angle of study on the great master.
