Описание: Rooted in tales both ancient and modern, these vibrant images date from the early twentieth century's Golden Age of Illustration. Edmund Dulac, a prominent artist of the period, created them for books published between 1905 and 1928. Their moods range from the shadowy foreboding of Jane Eyre to the venturesome spirits of Treasure Island and the lighthearted fantasies of A Fairy Garland. Other featured titles include Shakespeare's The Tempest, The Arabian Nights, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. French-born Edmund Dulac arrived in London in 1904, when new advances in the printing process kindled a rage for picture books. Dulac's imaginative powers and technical skills assured the popularity of his book illustrations, many of which were sold separately as fine art paintings. After World War I, when the appetite for deluxe volumes waned, the artist turned his talents in many new directions, including portraiture, theatrical costume and set design, newspaper caricature, and stamp design. This retrospective of his early works is the only such anthology available, offering a singular tribute to an artist from a halcyon era of art inspired by literature.
Описание: An unrivaled treasury of the methods, techniques, and examples of the great illustrators, this volume covers five centuries of decorations for the printed page. Ranging from the dawn of printing to the twentieth century, it offers working artists and students an unsurpassed reference and source of inspiration. It also forms a delightful browsing book for lovers of art and illustrated books. Starting with 16th-century woodcuts by Albrecht Durer and Hans Holbein, the chronological presentation features works by Goya, Hogarth, Blake, Morris, Dore, Toulouse-Lautrec, Beardsley, and other masters. A brief text introduces each section, and the volume concludes with an international roster of modern artists, categorized by country. All that is best and outstanding in the field of illustration appears here, in this giant book of sketches, engravings, woodcuts, and lithography.
Описание: Utilizing as few words as possible, but presenting a tremendous variety and volume of illustrations, this all-in-one guide details the fundamentals of drawing in its various phases and fields.

Geared to newcomers and yet still beneficial for more experienced artists, Moranz's illuminating advice covers everything from nude and draped figures to the art of portraits and sketching animals. He covers the effective use of various mediums, including pencil, charcoal, pen, and wash. Plus, he offers helpful tips on developing a sixth sense about perspective, the basics of composition, reflecting light and shadow, and more. There's even a chapter on taking drawing one step further -- from a pleasurable hobby to a successful commercial venture.
