Описание: The product of extended visits to properties associated with Wright, and extensive interviews with surviving colleagues and students, this is the first book in full colour to focus on Wright's four most famous residential landscapes - his first home and studio at Oak Park, Illinois; his magnificent 3,000 acre summer home Taliesin, Wisconsin; his 600-acre winter home Taliesin West, Arizona; and Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, the commission that made him world famous.
Featuring an introduction by James Van Sweden, America's leading garden designer and landscape architect, this book highlights a revolutionary take on garden design. It also explores the source of Wright's inspiration in Japanese and Mayan landscapes as well as his appreciation of the stone meeting circles and naturalistic prairie plantings of the great landscape architect Jens Jensen. Two final chapters offer planting plans for a prairie-style and a desert-style garden inspired by Wright's designs.

Описание: For many years the designs found on engraved handguns has been found quite interesting. This book identifies the motifs employed, and determines engraving characteristics of various arms producing companies. To accomplish this, examples of .22 calibre handguns from 1855 to the mid-1870s have been examined and photographed, and a system of identification has been structured. By using this system, one may determine styles used within a particular manufacturer, or to compare similar styles used by more than one company. Among the manufacturers covered are: American Arms Co., Colt, Hopkins & Allen, Marlin, Reid, Remington, Smith & Wesson, Whitneyville, and many others.
Описание: Concerned with people called variously: eta, burakumin, buraku jumin, buraku people, outcastes, or "the lowest of the low," this book examines how their experience of caste/status-based discrimination in 19th century Japan affected their experience of race-based discrimination in the West of the US and Canada in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Описание: The significance of Robert Frank's photography is unquestionable. His The Americans is arguably the most important American photography publication of the postwar period, and his work has spawned numerous disciples, as well as a rich critical literature. However, it is also true that at the very moment he became a star--the end of the 1950s--Frank chose to abandon still photography for more than 10 years in order to entrench himself in filmmaking. Steidl's long-overdue DVD compilation of the Complete Film Works provides a comprehensive overview of more than 25 films and videos, some of them classics of the New American Cinema of the 1950s and 1960s. Volume I features a booklet with several in-depth essays and new stills taken from the original films and videos, as well as a DVD containing Me and My Brother, Frank's first feature-length work; The Sin of Jesus, based on a story by Isaac Babel and with music by Morton Feldman; and the seminal Pull My Daisy, a 1959 short film co-directed by Alfred Leslie, starring Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Larry Rivers, Peter Orlovsky, David Amram, Richard Bellamy, Alice Neel, Sally Gross and Frank's then-infant son, and narrated by Jack Kerouac. One of the most important experimental films of the twentieth century, Pull My Daisy, has been deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.

Описание: Here is volume two of Robert Frank's long-awaited Complete Film Works. At the end of the 1950s, Frank abandoned traditional still photography to become a filmmaker. He eventually returned to photography in the 1970s, but Frank, as a filmmaker, has remained a well-kept secret for almost four decades. Volume two comprises Conversations in Vermont, Liferaft Earth and OK End Here. Conversations in Vermont was produced in 1969, and was Frank's first autobiographical film, addressing his relationship with his two teenaged children, and partly told through his narration over filmed images of his photographs, family photographs and world famous images. Liferaft Earth opens with a newspaper report from Hayward, California: "Sandwiched between a restaurant and supermarket, 100 anti-population protesters spent their second starving day in a plastic enclosure...The so-called Hunger Show, a week-long starve-in aimed at dramatizing man's future in an overpopulated, underfed world...." This film was made for Stewart Brand, the visionary founder of the international ecological movement and publisher of the bestselling Whole Earth Catalog (1968-85). OK End Here is Frank's 1963 short film about inertia in a modern relationship. The film alternates between semi-documentary scenes and shots composed with rigid formality, and suggests the influence of the French Nouvelle Vague and Michelangelo Antonioni's films. Robert Frank was born in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1924 and went to the United States in 1947. He is best known for his seminal book The Americans, first published in 1958, which gave rise to a distinct new art form in the photo book, and his experimental film Pull My Daisy, made in 1959.
