Описание: Dating from 1917 to the end of the Cold War, the posters in this book feature the work of groundbreaking Russian artists such as El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko, as well as extraordinary anonymous work. Presented in full colour and printed on heavy paper in a large-format, the posters gathered here represent the pinnacle of Russian avant-garde design from the 20th century. They range in theme from the dangers of alcohol abuse and the creeping Nazi menace to illustrations of utopian harmony and the Soviet industrial machine. A special feature of this book allows for the removal of the posters for display or framing. A brief introduction offers a chronological overview of the period that produced such eloquent art, which has long been a major source of inspiration to artists and designers alike.

Описание: Soviet propaganda against the demon drink: the latest in Fuel's Russian pop culture series From the acclaimed authors of the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedias and Soviet Space Dogs comes Alcohol, a glorious and exhaustive collection of previously unpublished Soviet anti-alcohol posters. The book includes examples from the 1960s through to the 1980s, but focuses on posters produced during Mikhail Gorbachev's campaign initiated in 1985. These posters attempted to sober up Soviet citizens by forcing them to confront the issues associated with excessive alcohol consumption. This government-led urgency allowed the poster designers to present the anti-alcohol message in the most graphic terms: they depicted drunks literally trapped inside the bottle or being strangled by "the green snake." Their protagonists are paralytic freeloaders and shirkers who always neglect their families, drive under the influence, produce substandard work, are smashed when pregnant and present a constant danger to fellow citizens. A two-part essay by renowned cultural historian Alexei Plutser-Sarno attempts to explain, from a Russian perspective, the reasons behind this phenomenon.

Описание: Architecture reflects the period of time in which it was created. This is true for landmark buildings and major public projects as well as residential and family properties. Yet architecture is also an expression of an individual's personality, needs, taste, and his or her overall take on life. Different countries, cultures, and lifestyles influence the design of structures and interiors as much as the local climate and other regional characteristics do. What does a house need to become a home? Infinite Space provides answers to this question that are as varied as the people behind the projects presented on its pages. Singles, couples, and families; clients, architects, and suppliers--they all have their own ideas of what makes a modern home. While the featured buildings have a contemporary clarity, lightness, and openness in common, they differ greatly in their details. The spectrum of materials used includes wood, stone, metal, and glass. Colors range from bright to subdued; furnishings from glamorously elaborate to tastefully understated. Their unique combination gives each house its character or, rather, reflects the character of its owners, builders, and residents. A terrace by a lake, a dramatic fireplace, a living room bathed in sunlight adjoining an open-plan kitchen, a pool amongst palm trees, a sauna in the forest, a bedroom with a sky view--Infinite Space showcases stunning projects from all around the world captured by renowned architecture and interior photographer James Silverman on his travels. In his images of living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, working areas, children's rooms, and gardens, Silverman explores the interplay of functional and decorative space, as well as interiors and exteriors. Infinite Space takes a nuanced look at how houses are constructed today. This book will not only inspire professional architects and interior designers, but it will also prompt anyone building or renovating a house to define their own particular home in more detail--little by little, and each time slightly differently. Until their dream home becomes a reality.

Описание: Hollywood Dogs showcases a fine selection of photographs from the famous John Kobal Foundation. Taken between 1920 and 1960 during the Golden Age of Hollywood, they feature stars including Humphrey Bogart, Buster Keaton, Elvis Presley, Tony Curtis, Sophia Lauren, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Ava Gardner, Shirley Maclaine, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn posing with dogs of every stature and breed. In almost every case, these stunning photographs have never been seen before now.
As much as the Hollywood studio system tried to control every aspect of their stars' lives, there was nothing the bosses could do to manipulate their illustrious employees' responses when photographed with their dogs. Hollywood Dogs celebrates this special relationship between these famous owners and their animals. Often caught off-guard, and almost always relaxed and natural, these are photographs of the Hollywood stars as real people.
Amongst the images are some of the most famous dogs in Hollywood films: Lassie; Asta; Rin Tin Tin and Toto from the Wizard of Oz. There are also a few carefully-set-up publicity shots, such as Frank Sinatra on the set of Pal Joey, and Jean Harlow accessorised with a large hat and two Old English sheepdogs.
Each image has been researched to identify the breed and wherever possible, the name of the dog, and Catherine Britton has included intriguing details about the location and background to the photograph.
