Beyond Contemporary Art
Etan Jonathan Ilfeld
Crazy Art will be a revelation to anyone who thinks that art is more or less limited to painting, sculpture and photography. The title features the work of more than fifty contemporary artists drawn from all over the world, demonstrating that there are absolutely no boundaries to expressing the most inventive and exciting ideas through a vast range of different media and materials.
Crazy Photography presents the work of more than fifty contemporary photographers from all over the world demonstrating how the way we capture and look at images has been revolutionised in recent years. By skillfully manipulating and playing with images, the artists challenge our perceptions and beliefs, inducing in us an altered view of what seems to be familiar or ordinary.
In this book, the author surveys the key concepts and ideas that have reverberated throughout the art world in the last decade by presenting the artists who have created them. While highlighting established artists such as Gerhard Richter, the book also includes emerging and mid-career artists. Artists such as Jeremy Wood who plots his movement across the globe through GPS tracking, Tatsuo Miyajima who does digital light displays and Eduardo Kac who does transgenic bio-art are among the international artists included. Often controversial, these artists push the boundaries of what would traditionally be considered art.

Affordable Contemporary Art
Toulouse-Lautrec & His World
Icons: Masterpieces of Russian Art
Russian Film Posters (1900-1930)
With an introduction by Maria-Christina Boerner
Olga A. Polyakova
With an introduction by Maria-Christina Boerner
Affordable Contemporary Art is a handbook for people who want to know and understand more about buying and collecting art; who’d like to build their confidence when making choices about investing in individual pieces and building a collection. This book is also useful for people interested in working in galleries or auction houses, for artists, and for students of studio art.
The Belle Époque (Beautiful Era), which dates from the late nineteenth century to the start of World War I, was an incredible period of creative and scientific activity. Until his death in 1901 at the age of 36, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was one of its leading names. He exhibited with Vincent Van Gogh and was a friend of Oscar Wilde whom he met during his time in London. Producing literally thousands of artworks during his short life, the images that Toulouse-Lautrec created were evocative of the mood of that time.
We are proud to offer this important book on icons dating from the 16th to the 19th centuries. These sixty icons from the Kolomenskoye State Museum are presented with full descriptions of their origins and symbolic meanings written by a leading specialist in old Russian art. This book is a valuable resource for art historians, scholars of religious practice, and collectors of icons.
This volume, based on rarely seen Russian archives, traces the history of the silent film poster in Russia, starting with a poster designed by Paul Assaturov (“Stenka Razin”, 1908) in the style of ancient naive Russian imagery to the latest, an advertisement for a silent movie by Yuri Pimenov from 1934. Full-page reproductions of 161 Russian silent film posters are presented here in chronological order.

The World Ornament Sourcebook
Designing Celtic Ornament
Handmade in Britain
This sourcebook is a wonderful compendium of decorative details derived from ancient Russian manuscripts from the 10th to the 16th centuries. The first part contains hundreds of examples of decorative motifs in full colour arranged in chronological groups. The second half of the book provides templates, which can be used for tracing or scanning details of the decorative elements. This book is a valuable resource for art historians, manuscript scholars, graphic and product designers, typographers and students.
This amazing compilation of decorative motifs from around the world is unparalleled in its range of coverage with examples from early Greek, Roman and Egyptian designs through those of the 19th century. Geographically diverse, the book covers ornamentation from Asia and Africa as well as Europe and the Americas. Originally published in the 19th century in two volumes, this work by Auguste Racinet was an invaluable resource to artists, designers and architects when it was first published and continues to be so today.
Drawing on the immense popularity and the timeless appeal of Celtic ornaments, author David Balade has chosen the most interesting, diverse and typical patterns and motifs of Celtic art for this beautifully designed, practical and historical sourcebook. Individual chapters examine the major patterns of Celtic ornamentation: spirals, interlace, labyrinths and beasts and the many modifications they underwent throughout the ages. More than 200 of the designs can be reproduced and used on contemporary work.
In these days of mass produced objects, it is comforting to know that there are still craftspeople working by hand and creating wonderful and unique jewellery, ceramics, textiles, furniture and other crafts. Many draw their inspiration from nature and the world around them, each has a unique approach to their work and the area they have chosen to specialize in. Over 90 contemporary designer-makers from England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland are featured in this book.

Michael Alan Park
Svetlana Belorustseva and Andrei Sochivko
Aimed at an educated reader who knows little about the topic and written in a clear, straightforward way, this book will explain the basic principles of evolutionary theory not only where it fits within science in general, but also the role it has played in the history of science itself and the reaction of society to the concept of evolution.
What is the universe? How does it work? Where did it come from? These fundamental questions intrigue adults and children alike. This approachable guide brings alive humanity’s attempts to explain the existence of everything and explores the latest and best theories on how the universe came into being. From the basic understanding of the nature of a star, or of how a planet like the Earth was formed, the remarkable story of cosmology unfolds through to the truly ultimate question of how the universe will end.
This extraordinary collection of photographs opens our eyes to an amazing and unusual view of our natural world through the lens of a camera, which has magnified both the familiar and the unfamiliar living things that surround us. Many of these images are unique in including rare exotic species and some of the creatures are introduced to the public for the first time. The book’s images are accompanied by professional photographers’ recommendations on equipment and techniques necessary to obtain the types of photographic effects shown.
