Summary

The Log Book of a lone Astronaut/Psychonaut/Holonaut in a holographic exploration through space and time to an extremely large planet in the distant recesses of an unknown galaxy - resembling in many respects a human eye (named Ocularis). Mimetic in character, it has somehow focused its gaze on the Earth and its water and has consequently created weird and wonderful organisms in its vast internal fluid-filled centre.

    An exploration of the corset as a motif for textile artists, with practical tips and examples. Used for the last 400 years to contort the female body into a variety of fashionable silhouettes, the corset has become a fascinating and hugely popular motif for modern textile artists who wish to represent the female body using the largely feminine traditions of textile and stitch. Beginning with a step-by-step guide to constructing a simple fabric corset, the book goes on to explore more contemporary and experimental approaches to construction, from using unusual materials such as lace, metal, paper and found fibres to up-cycling or repurposing existing garments to make a statement. This practical guide is full of exercises for creating intimate garments and wearable art in two- and three-dimensions and is packed with inspiring work and installations by other contemporary artists.

The airbrush student has to learn significant new skills - to master not only colour and shade, but also air pressure, paint consistency and the diverse ways of masking and shading that can help to achieve such wonderful results.' Professor Andy Penaluna. This step-by-step guide to techniques and maintenance explains how to run and maintain an airbrush and gives step-by-step examples of a range of projects. Every art or decorating form can use airbrushing including fine art, fabric printing, leatherwork and much, much more. Superbly illustrated with 399 colour photographs. Fred Crellin runs not only his own airbrushing company specializing in custom painting, portraits and cartoons but also the Artimagination Airbrush School.

    Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

    This portrait of poverty-stricken Southern tenant farmers during the Great Depression has become one of the most influential books of the past century. In the summer of 1936, Pulitzer Prize–winning writer James Agee and photographer Walker Evans set out on assignment for Fortune magazine to explore the daily lives of white sharecroppers in the South. Their journey would prove an extraordinary collaboration—and a watershed literary event.  Let Us Now Praise Famous Men was published to enormous critical acclaim. An unsparing record in words and pictures of this place, the people who shaped the land, and the rhythm of their lives, it would eventually be recognized by the New York Public Library as one of the most influential books of the twentieth century—and serve as an inspiration to artists from composer Aaron Copland to David Simon, creator of The Wire. With an additional sixty-four archival photos in this edition, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men remains as relevant and important as when it was first published over seventy-seven years ago.   “One of the most brutally revealing records of an America that was ignored by society—a class of people whose level of poverty left them as spiritually, mentally, and physically worn as the land on which they toiled. Time has done nothing to decrease this book’s power.” —Library Journal
