What do we think of when we think pink? In this richly illustrated homage to the color, artist Kaye Blegvad explores its significance across history and cultures, from gender connotations to product marketing, symbols and iconography, and more. Through engaging mini essays, interactive exercises, object studies, and interviews, readers will learn about a vibrant miscellany of pink facts and pink occurrences: like iconic applications of the color, from Elvis's cars to cotton candy; or the etymology of phrases like "tickled pink," "pink slip," or "rose-tinted glasses."

    The English school of painting was officially recognised
    at the beginning of the 18th century through the work of
    William Hogarth. It includes works by the most famous
    English artists, such as Thomas Gainsborough, Joseph
    Mallord William Turner, John Constable, Edward Burne-
    Jones, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. This subject is introduced
    with a very unique text, published in 1882: a French study
    of English pictorial art. The author, Ernest Chesneau, was
    highly-cultured, an art historian and inspector of Fine Arts.
    He explains the beginnings of this school which excels in
    portraiture and landscapes, and reminds us of the English
    brilliance regarding watercolours, not forgetting to include
    the work of the Pre-Raphaelites.

    Taking a fresh look at The Shining (1980), this book situates the film within the history of the horror genre and examines its rightful status as one of the greatest horror movies ever made. It explores how Stanley Kubrick's filmmaking style, use of dark humor, and ambiguous approach to supernatural storytelling complements generic conventions, and it analyzes the effective choices made in adapting King's book for the screen—stripping the novel's backstory, rejecting its clear explanations of the Overlook Hotel's hauntings, and emphasizing the strained relationships of the Torrance family. The fractured family unit and patriarchal terror of Kubrick's film, alongside its allusions to issues of gender, race, and class, connect it to themes prevalent in horror cinema by the end of the 1970s, and are shown to offer a critique of American society that chimed with the era's political climate as well as its genre trends. The film's impact on horror cinema and broader pop culture is ever apparent, with homages in everything from Toy Story to American Horror Story. The Shining showed that popular, commercial horror films could be smart, artistic, and original.
