Poster Man: 50 Years of Iconic Graphic Design
Poster Man: 50 Years of Iconic Graphic D... $39.77
This collection of over 140 curated posters by the revolutionary graphic artist Seymour Chwast provides context and insight into not only his five-decade career but the poster genre itself. Since founding Push Pin Studios alongside Milton Glaser and Edward Sorel in the 1950s, Chwast's posters have been widely celebrated for their combination of subversive style and strong political satire. His caustic humor, graphic hand, and visual commentary cleverly synthesize in a way that is both wry and immediately understandable. Posters are arranged by type-Causes, Commerce, Information, Exhibits, and Lectures rather than chronology, which, along with the large format, invites readers to engage thematically with the designs. Commentary on each poster makes this a valuable resource for students, educators, historians, and all who appreciate the unique ability of posters to subvert notions of popular culture, politics, and design at once. Essays by Shepard Fairey and Steven Heller contextualize Chwast's impact on 20th-century design. Seymour Chwast is an American graphic designer and founding partner of the celebrated Push Pin Studios, whose revolutionary work altered the course of graphic communication and design. Since founding Push Pin Studios alongside Milton Glaser and Edward Sorel in the 1950s, Seymour's work has been endlessly recorded in every national and international design survey book. His work has been featured in the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, and The Atlantic, among many others. He maintains an active presence in the graphic arts and illustrators community and has had his work displayed in museums such as the MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, San Francisco MoMA, Galerie Pompidou (Paris), Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Louvre), etc. Many of Seymour's most iconic posters, including his 1968 antiwar piece End Bad Breath as well as his 1967 Visit Dante's Inferno, were featured in the hit period drama, Mad Men.

The Meaning of Icons by Leonid Ouspensky, Vladimir Lossky Hardcover
The Meaning of Icons by Leonid Ouspensky... $148.49
Includes 160 pages of text with drawings, 13 black and white, and 51 full-color pages. In the last decades, the art of icons has gained increased attention. Once icons were passed over by the art critics, or at most classified as popular art, although painters such as Matisse or Picasso went to Russia especially for the sake of studying this art. Most recently many books have been published on icon painting. Yet the present work is the first of its kind to give a reliable introduction into the spiritual background of this art. The nature of the icon cannot be grasped by means of pure art criticism, nor by the adoption of a sentimental point of view. Its forms are based on the wisdom contained in the theological and liturgical writings of the Eastern Orthodox Church and are intimately bound up with the experience of contemplative life. This introduction into the meaning and the language of the icons imparts to us in an admirable way the spiritual conceptions of the Eastern Orthodox Church which are often so foreign to us, but without the knowledge of which we cannot possibly understand the world of the icon. The theological justification of the icon was derived by the Seventh Ecumenical Council from the fact of the Incarnation of God. God became human for the elation and deification of Man. This deification becomes visible in the saints. The Byzantine theologian often sets the calling of an icon painter on an equal level with that of a priest. Devoted to the service of a more sublime reality, he exercises his objective duty the same way as the liturgical priest. The "spiritual genuineness" of the icon, the cryptic, almost sacral power to convince, is not alone due to accurate observation of the iconographic canon, but also the ascetic fervor of the painter. This work includes a very interesting section on the technique of icon painting followed by the main part of the book, in which both authors describe the most important types of icons. Apart from a detailed description of the icon screen (iconostas) of the Russian Church, 58 types are explained with the aid of an equal number of illustrations, amongst which there are alone 10 various representatives of the virgin. Special mention is due to 51 icons reproduced in their complete colorful splendor. The section of subjects made in order to reveal the main features of Orthodox iconography was naturally limited to the examples available outside of Russia. However, this does not diminish the value of the book; on the contrary, it led to the reproduction of many beautiful icons which had never been published before or had been unknown to the wider public. A considerable number of museums and private collectors in Europe and America spontaneously placed their collections at the disposal of the authors.
