    100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design
    This accessible book demonstrates how ideas influenced and defined graphic design. Lavishly illustrated, it is both a great source of inspiration and a provocative record of some of the best examples of graphic design from the last hundred years. The entries, arranged broadly in chronological order, range from technical (overprinting, rub-on designs, split fountain); to stylistic (swashes on caps, loud typography, and white space); to objects (dust jackets, design handbooks); and methods (paper cut-outs, pixelation).

  • 52 Artists 52 Actions: Small Acts of Disobedience: Small Acts of Disobedience
    52 Artists 52 Actions: Small Acts of Disobedience: Small Acts of Disobedience
    The mainstream media keeps us in a constant state of emergency where the word 'crisis' is used daily and 'breaking news' is a permanent banner across our screens. The real emergencies we should be facing are often disguised behind biased rhetoric or consciously omitted altogether: Climate change! Severe economic inequality! Decay of democracy! Brexit! Trump! The alt-right! 52 ARTISTS 52 ACTIONS sets out to address the real and daunting trials of everyday life across contemporary Asia. Each of the 52 artists includes a statement about their work, which often reads as a compelling, heartbreaking memoir in miniature, giving deep insights into cultural traditions. Echo Morgan - cover artist - says this: I was sent away at the age of four after my parents' divorce to board at a much-hated, strict communist kindergarten. There I was shaped into a 'xiao hong hua', a little red flower, obedient and pliant. This early communist education and China's economic boom is deeply embodied in my roots. They still strongly control my thoughts and behaviour. Other highlights include: - Kyungah Ham's Korean Mona Lisas - Deborah Kelly's crowd-sourced feminist wisdom as print-at-home stickers and posters - Heman Chong's list of 198 forms of non-violent action - Chim Pom's oversized jigsaw puzzle, Find the C*&R!!!, in response to Japan becoming increasingly strict about nudity even though Asia's largest red-light district, Kabukicho, is in Shinjuku, Tokyo - The Mulka Project's mission to sustain and protect Yolngu cultural knowledge in north-east Arnhem Land under the leadership of community elders. 52 ARTISTS 52 ACTIONS champions small acts of disobedience undertaken live and online by 52 artists from 31 countries across Asia, addressing important concerns locally and globally. From historical revisionism in the Philippines to micro-celebrities in Bangladesh, military abuse in Myanmar to rising sea levels in Indonesia, visibility for LGBTQI+ people of colour to contemporary Indigeneity, the artists tackle critical issues with determination, innovation and humour. Each week, the work of a different artist is presented in a unique context, spanning a year of new artistic practice across the region. Exploring the role of activism and protest throughout, the focus is on art-as-action that has the power to raise awareness and invoke change. With striking images and bold, graphic design, 52 ARTISTS 52 ACTIONS is an encyclopaedia of creative responses to political and social issues facing contemporary Asia.

  • Abstract Art
    Abstract Art
    Since the early years of the 20th century, Western abstract art has fascinated, outraged and bewildered audiences. Its path to acceptance within the artistic mainstream was slow. Anna Moszynska traces the origins and evolution of abstract art, placing it in broad cultural context. She examines the pioneering work of Kandinsky, Malevich and Mondrian alongside the Russian Constructivists, the De Stijl group and the Bauhaus artists, contrasting European geometric abstraction in the 1930s and 40s with the emphasis on personal expression after the Second World War. Op, Kinetic and Minimal art of the postwar period is discussed and illustrated in detail, and new chapters bring the account up to date, exploring the crisis in abstraction of the 1980s and its revival - in paint, fabric, sculpture and installation - in recent decades. The first edition of this book, published in 1990, was acclaimed by reviewers; now in full colour and comprehensively revised, it will serve as the best introduction to abstract art for a new generation.

  • Anatomy for the Artist
    Anatomy for the Artist
    Unlock your inner artist and learn how to draw the human body in this beautifully illustrated art book by celebrated artist and teacher Sarah Simblet.

    In Anatomy for the Artist, Sarah reveals the extraordinary structure of the human
    body. Combining specially-commissioned photographs of models with historical
    and contemporary works of art and her own dynamic life drawing, she leads us inside the human body to map its skeleton, muscle groups, and body systems. Detailed line drawings superimposed over photographs reveal the links between what the body looks like and its internal construction. Six drawing classes show how to observe different parts of the body - from top to toe - and give expert guidance on how to draw them. Inspirational master classes on famous works, ranging from a Michelangelo study to a Degas painting, show how artists have depicted the human body over the centuries. Each master class includes a photograph of a model holding the same pose as in the painting, to highlight details of anatomy and show how the artist has interpreted them.

    Understanding anatomy is the key to drawing the human body successfully. As well as being the perfect reference, Anatomy for the Artist will inspire you to find a model, reach for your pencil, and start drawing.

  • Andy Goldsworthy Projects
    Andy Goldsworthy Projects
    Andy Goldsworthy: Projects presents a decade of the artist's large-scale sculptural work from around the world. Using local materials-including stone, clay, and wood-Goldsworthy's projects are inspired by and interact with the natural landscape. Each project subjects Goldsworthy's ideas about the work to the brute facts and forces of nature: sunlight, sedimentation, tides, erosion, extremes of heat and cold, and plant growth and decay. Situated throughout Europe and the United States, Goldsworthy's projects are as beautiful as they are thought provoking. Each one is accompanied by commentary by the artist, and none have been published previously. Andy Goldsworthy: Projects is a companion volume to Andy Goldsworthy: Ephemeral Works (2015).
