The Education of a Circus Clown: Mentors, Audiences, Mistakes
2017 Freedley Award Finalist, Theatre Library Association 2016 Best Circus Book of the Year, Stuart Thayer Prize, Circus Historical Society The 1960s American hippie-clown boom fostered many creative impulses, including neo-vaudeville and Ringling's Clown College. However, the origin of that impulse, clowning with a circus, has largely gone unexamined. David Carlyon, through an autoethnographic examination of his own experiences in clowning, offers a close reading of the education of a professional circus clown, woven through an eye-opening, sometimes funny, occasionally poignant look at circus life. Layering critical reflections of personal experience with connections to wider scholarship, Carlyon focuses on the work of clowning while interrogating what clowns actually do, rather than using them as stand-ins for conceptual ideas or as sentimental figures.

Phillimore's Edinburgh
In his day, Reginald P. Phillimore (1855-1941) was one of Britain's leading postcard artists. A great friend of the Athens of the North, he settled in North Berwick and delighted in depicting various Edinburgh locations, both famous and obscure. Artistically, these cards are some of the finest he produced. He sold his cards through a network of dealers, all over Britain, and since he employed a local schoolgirl to hand colour his drawings, no two coloured cards are the same. Although some of Phillimore's Edinburgh postcards are easy to come by, others are exceedingly rare and sought after today. This book brings together, for the first time ever, all of Phillimore's Edinburgh postcards, to present a fascinating and unique picture of the highways and byways of the great city, from a series of vintage views by a master artist. Phillimore's Edinburgh makes use of all of his ninety-five Edinburgh postcards, with explanatory text and a few supplementary illustrations. It will appeal both to those who know and love Edinburgh and to postcard collectors.

Art Deco
Art deco refers to a striking range of decorative design styles that emerged in the early twentieth century and comes from the influential 1925 Paris International Exhibition of Decorative Arts. Spreading from Paris, it became particularly associated with American industrial design and the decor of Hollywood. The style became connected with leisure and entertainment in the jazz age, giving cinemas, hotels and department stores across Britain a touch of Hollywood glamour. It was an eclectic modernism that had no clear boundaries and could be applied to anything from a suburban bathroom to a new power station or an ocean liner. By the 1930s, deco was morphing into the smooth curves of streamlining - a style that emphasised the speed of modern cars, trains and airliners. But this luxury decoration had no place in wartime. After burning brightly for less than fifteen years, art deco style disappeared with the outbreak of the Second World War. This book is part of the Britain's Heritage series, which provides definitive introductions to the riches of Britain's past, and is the perfect way to get acquainted with art deco in all its variety.

Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck: New Research
This book presents sixteen essays exploring the work of two of 17th-century Amsterdam's most ambitious painters, Govert Flinck and Ferdinand Bol. Museum curators, academic art historians, and conservation scientists from six different countries come together to investigate form, content, and context from a variety of perspectives. Eric Jan Slujter examines how changing patterns of patronage contributed to both artists' stylistic evolution. Hilbert Lootsma traces the rise and fall of their critical fortunes from their own time until today. Ann Jensen Adams situates their work in the shifting market for portraiture. Jasper Hillegers explores the origins of Flinck's career in the Leeuwarden studio of Lambert Jacobsz. Other authors present contextual and technical analyses of individual paintings. Portrait identities are revealed, painterly tricks uncovered, and both artists are shown to be influential teachers and members of an intellectual community in which art and theatre were closely linked. Many of these essays originated at an international conference held in preparation for the exhibition, Govert Flinck and Ferdinand Bol. Together, they shed new light on the methods and motivations of two artists who began as Rembrandt's acolytes but soon became his rivals.

America State by State: Fifty Removable Placemats to Color
Discover the treasures of America with this unique coloring book featuring beautifully illustrated maps and key facts of each of the fifty states, printed on perforated scalloped pages reminiscent of vintage diner placemats. Take a trip across the United States, from Maine to Hawaii, Alaska to Florida, and every state in-between without leaving your home! Inspired by original road-stop cafe paper placemats from the 1950s and '60s, each page of America State by State is devoted to one of the fifty states. Every illustrated map features quirky drawings noting the state's key destinations-including places and monuments-popular drinks, foods, and sports, as well as the state bird and flower. Imitating the style, size, and design of those classic placemats of every Baby Boomer's childhood, each page of America State by State is scallop-edged (even on the perforated edge) making them easy to remove, color, and frame-or use as placemats at home.

Early Chinese Jades
INTRODUCTION The early Chinese believed that jade had an immortality of its own and was impervious to decay. For them there was no substance nobler, purer, more durable, more pre-eminently suitable for the fashioning of religious emblems and the embodiment of dogma. Round jade, as round a kernel, the whole body of early Chinese civilisation crystallised. And yet they were not the first discoverers or users of jade, for the Babylonians made seal cylinders of jade, and Professor Elliott Smith believes that the Turkestan jade mountains and rivers were first worked by miners from Mesopotamia who, passing on legends about the magical qualities of jade, infected the Chinese with their beliefs. From the third millennium he says, the mines on the S.E. of the Caspian were being exploited and contact was established between Babylonians, Elamites, and the population of Turkestan. But however early the contacts, assumed or established, we can state truthfully that the Chinese made jade particularly and everlastingly their own, embodying in it their traditions, their religion, their administrative system. They may have derived their belief in the life-giving properties of jade from the Elamites, or have come to attach a magical value to its presence from the Babylonian miners, but for neither of these peoples was it the vehicle of supernatural beliefs, and, penetrate as far back as we may into pre-history, we cannot find a time in China in which jade was not used for religious purposes. What perhaps emphasises the peculiar position of jade in Chinese culture is the fact that other early peoples used jade, although for them it had no significance greater or even as great as gold or pearls. Jade was dug and worked in many parts of Europe. Hatchets have been found in Switzerland, nephrite celts in South Italy and France, Germany, Dalmatia, and Hungary. Jade celts, too, were discovered by Schliemann at Hissarlik, but by no people save the Chinese has jade been made the nucleus and the shrine of a civilisation-although its use was distributed in Turkestan, Persia, Siberia, India, Lake Baikal, and Japan, and to a minor degree the substance was prized by most Asiatic peoples. It is only during the last two decades that collectors have begun to realise the enormous importance of jade. Dr. Laufer broke new ground when, in 1912, he published his great work, xde, A Study in Chinese Archzology and Religion. His object in writing this book was rather ethnological than artistic. He himself calls it a contribution to the l Anthropology, Encyclopzdia Britannica.....

The Film Photography Book
Film is back! And about time, too. We just were getting a little too comfortable with the idea of snapping selfies on our dumb phones at the ends of vanity sticks when film returned to slap us up. Film is not for the faint of heart. It takes serious effort, serious time. It costs money for each frame, from buying the film to paying to develop it or developing it in a film tank. Only those interested in the unique and fantastic look of film will brave this path. The Film Photography Book is for us, those interested in all aspects of film photography from choosing cameras and lenses, to choosing film and subjects, to buying chemicals and processing. The book can serve as a refresher to those who now are returning to film photography after a long absence, and as a getting started course for those who never shot film in their lives. It's an adventure, a new Voyage of Photography, part of Shawn M. Tomlinson's Guide to Photography Series, the beginning of a sub-series about film photography. Come on along.

Mad March Hares
A collection of paintings and poetry by illustrator Vikki Yeates. Vikki has painted many hares over the years; they have become a happy obsession! This book brings most of them together in one volume, together with the poetry which often features in her paintings. She uses the Automatic Writing technique to scratch stories and poems into the artwork. It is not always possible to read the poems in their entirety, as the writing often continues off of the page, or certain areas are obscured by the paint. So this book is also a record of four of her poems/prose: 'Mad March Hares', 'Spirit', 'Moonlight Hares' and 'The Crow and the Moon'. The latter is the first poem Vikki wrote using this method - and does not feature any hares!

Preternatural
Preternatural is an exhibition catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition Preternatural, 9 December 2011 to 17 February 2012, Ottawa, Canada (http://www.preternatural.ca). The exhibition comprises three installation sites and 9 artists, all of whom explore the idea that art itself is a form of preternatural pursuit, in which they explore the bewildering condition of being in between the mundane and the marvelous in nature. It questions a world that understands itself as accessible, reachable, and 'knowable' and counters it with a consideration of this heterogenous proposition. Celina Jeffery is Associate Professor of Art History and Theory, and the Chair of the Visual Arts program at the University of Ottawa. She is the co-editor (with Gregory Minissale) of Global and Local Art Histories (2007) and the co-founder and editor of Drain Magazine: A Journal of Contemporary Art and Culture (2004-present).

Soviet Historical Drama: Its Role in the Development of a National Mythology
The taste for history is the most ariswcratic of all tastes. Ernest Rerum Our century is pre-eminently an historical century . . . . Even art has now become pre-eminently historical. The historical novel and drama interest each and everyone more at present than do similar works belonging to the realm of pure fiction. ! Although Belinskii was writing in 1841, his statement could equally well apply to the Russia of a century later, when the interest in historical fiction had become, if anything, more intense. In fact, the abundance of Soviet historical novels and plays tempts one to believe Heine, when he said that the people want their history handed to them by the poet, not the historian. The infatuation with history to which Belinskii referred was not, however, indigenous to Russia; it was part of a rage, largely inspired by Waiter Scott, which had swept western Europe in the early nine- teenth century, and which soon spread to Russia. Today, Scott's star has been eclipsed in the West, but it still burns brightly in the Soviet Union. Indeed, it can be said that the West has not only rejected Scott, but, to a considerable extent, the historical novel and playas well. As one writer recently put it: The reading public, brought up on a strict diet of sex and science, prefers to take its history undiluted- in the form of unexpurgated memoirs and frank biographies.
