Описание: Muzan-e (cruel pictures) and Chimidoro-e (bloody pictures) together constitute a significant strand of ukiyo-e, the populist art of late Edo-period Japan. The most famous example of this genre remains Eimei Nijuhasshuku (1868) by the artists Yoshitoshi and Yoshiiku. Yoshiiku's violent contributions to this series are matched in horror by many other of his prints, ranging from news-sheet illustrations of misogynistic murder to kabuki scenes of torture and images of warriors harvesting severed heads in battle. Such gore-splashed pictures were also produced by numerous other artists, including Kunisada, Kuniyoshi, Yoshitoshi, Yoshiyuki, Kunichika, and the unsung creators of garish Osaka sex-crime news-sheets.
Cruelty And Carnage, edited by Jack Hunter (who also edited the ground-breaking extreme ukiyo-e anthology Dream Spectres), collects and considers over 100 of the most blood-drenched and disturbing artworks produced by Yoshiiku and others, presented in large-format and full-colour throughout.
The Ukiyo-e Master Series: presenting seminal collections of art by the greatest print-designers and painters of Edo-period and Meiji-period Japan.
Описание: The first Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895 was Japan's first modern war, and their first military action overseas for over 300 years. One notable result of this conflict was a huge burst in popularity for senso-e (war pictures), a genre of ukiyo-e which first evolved as a mutation of musha-e (warrior pictures) with the need in the 1870s to document the contemporary conflicts which had raged in Japan as a result of the Meiji Restoration, in particular the Seinan War of 1877.
Dozens of artists, from the celebrated to the obscure, added to the mass of images which circulated as the Sino-Japanese War progressed (an estimated 3,000 prints were created in just 10 months). Most of the scenes depicted were based on news reports sent back from the front, with artists rushing to replicate events as quickly as possible. The triptych, with its almost cinematic visual scope, was the preferred format for depicting such scenes of turmoil and carnage. Whilst there is a huge range in quality between the prints made by various artists, the very best senso-e of the Sino-Japnese War remain amongst the finest in ukiyo-e, providing a bold, if brief, resurrection for an artform which was in danger of dying out due to the advent of new imaging technologies.
MASSACRESe INe MANCHURIA features over 200 rare and exceptional Japanese woodblock prints of war. The artists featured in the book include Kiyochika, Gekko, Toshihide, Toshikata, Nobukazu, Chikanobu, Ginko, and numerous others -- a list of many of the most outstanding ukiyo-e artists of the late Meiji period, each of whom used their immense artistic talent and imagination to brilliantly illuminate contemporary conflict as it unfurled.

Описание: An illustrated document of the films of Jess Franco, the European cult director best known for his lurid depictions of sex, obsession, and horror. His most notorious films include Exorcism, Female Vampire, Vampyros Lesbos, and Succubus, and feature many of Europe's leading sex stars, most notably Soledad Miranda, Lina Romay, and Alice Arno. With over 400 promotional photographs and posters, Including: more than 150 full-colour pages; an introductory essay on Franco's career and work; and a complete illustrated filmography listing around 200 films. In the continued absence of a comprehensive critical evaluation of Franco, "Pornodelic Pleasures" will hopefully serve as a brief but stimulating introduction to the bizarre world of one of cinema's most enduring and original visionaries.
