Beyond Line: the Art of Korean Writing
Offering an extraordinary window into Korean culture, this magnificent volume brings a multidisciplinary approach to the history of Korean writing-from the earliest texts from the Three Kingdoms period to its use in contemporary art. Beyond Line discusses the social and cultural conditions that led to the creation of calligraphic works by a wide range of people, including kings, queens, scholar-officials, painters, monks, and even slaves. It also explores the variety of materials employed in the creation of the art-from paper, ink, and bamboo to ceramics, silk, and metal. In addition, it looks at how calligraphy was used both to maintain Korea's historical class structure and, as literacy spread, to incite social change for women, merchants, and other segments of society. The authors explore how the invention of the hangeul phonetic script led to a more global identity for Korea, and how this script continues to shape contemporary art and design. Beyond Line illuminates the beauty, strength, and historical significance of calligraphy in Korean culture.

Emma Stibbon: Fire and Ice
Emma Stibbon's drawings and prints depict volcanoes, tectonic plates and powerful glaciers. Includes commentary by the artist on the making and location of each image. The artist is fascinated by environments in flux. Her work often explores the impact of natural forces: the shifting tectonic plates, volcanic activity and powerful glaciers that shape and transform the Earth's surface. Stibbon has accompanied research expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans, lived and worked among volcanoes in Hawai'i, and has made several visits to Stromboli, off the coast of northern Sicily, Iceland and Norway. This book presents the sketches she made during her travels. They have the immediacy that results from an artist working at speed and often in difficult circumstances. Readers will discover the unexpected visual effect of ink that has frozen on contact with the paper. The book is introduced by the artist who, informed by her discussions with vulcanologists and glaciologists, explains why she is drawn to depict nature's extremes.

The Women of Atelier 17: Modernist Printmaking in Midcentury New York
A timely reexamination of the experimental New York print studio Atelier 17, focusing on the women whose work defied gender norms through novel aesthetic forms and techniques In this important book Christina Weyl takes us into the experimental New York print studio Atelier 17 and highlights the women whose work there advanced both modernism and feminism in the 1940s and 1950s. Weyl focuses on eight artists-Louise Bourgeois, Minna Citron, Worden Day, Dorothy Dehner, Sue Fuller, Alice Trumbull Mason, Louise Nevelson, and Anne Ryan-who bent the technical rules of printmaking and blazed new aesthetic terrain with their etchings, engravings, and woodcuts. She reveals how Atelier 17 operated as an uncommonly egalitarian laboratory for revolutionizing print technique, style, and scale. It facilitated women artists' engagement with modernist styles, providing a forum for extraordinary achievements that shaped postwar sculpture, fiber art, neo-Dadaism, and the Pattern and Decoration movement. Atelier 17 fostered solidarity among women pursuing modernist forms of expression, providing inspiration for feminist collective action in the 1960s and 1970s. The Women of Atelier 17 also identifies for the first time nearly 100 women, many previously unknown, who worked at the studio, and provides incisive illustrated biographies of selected artists.

Singular and Serial: Contemporary Monotype and Monoprint
The fascination with monotype and monoprint never diminishes, thanks to the primal thrill of making a mark, combined with suspense and surprise as paper is lifted from a press. Recent prints from more than 70 top artists across the US demonstrate what monotypes and monoprints offer to artists and the broader world of art, while Kernan, a professional printmaker, provides a view from the studio. She explains the processes and motivations for making singular prints, as well as current practice and context. Examples include unique prints and variations that cross boundaries with combinations of collage, collagraph, direct and transfer drawing, painting, photo-sensitive plates, digital printing, and paper casting with stencils. With their backgrounds in curating, collecting, and art history, Einstein draws us into the history and traditions of the forms, and Oresman writes as a collector about the fascination of monotype as a magically spontaneous process.

Bridget Riley
This landmark book reflects on almost 70 years of works by Bridget Riley (b.1931), from some of her earliest to very recent projects, providing a unique record of the work of an artist still very much at the height of her powers. Essays from leading scholars and commentators on Riley's work will make this title the authority on Riley's practice. In the last decade, Riley has continued to push her practice considerably, producing several large-scale site-specific wall paintings as well as continuing to develop new paintings. This book will explore these recent developments. It will also examine the notable influence that other artists such as Georges Seurat and Piet Mondrian have had on Riley's work.

The Manga Artist's Handbook: Drawing Basic Characters: The Easy 1-2-3 Method for Beginners
This book provides a revolutionary new 3-step tracing technique that beginning artists can use to quickly learn to draw manga characters just like a pro! Every page presents a classic manga pose, from walking and running to jumping for joy, in three different steps: 1. A simple outline of the body2. The defining elements of the character (like clothes, hair and facial expression) highlighted for easy tracing so you can practice placing them onto the basic body outline3. The finished drawing (for inspiration). Popular manga artists Junka Morozumi and Tomomi Mizuna guide you through a series of carefully graded lessons to build up your skills gradually. Chapter 1 deals with the basic poses of standing, walking, and running.; Chapter 2 presents signature manga poses such as turning around in surprise and being angry with hands on hips.; Chapter 3 practices various sitting and sleeping poses.; Chapter 4 deals with drawing perspective, looking at characters from above, below and diagonal viewpoints.; Chapter 5 focuses on 2-person manga poses including the classic prince with a princess in his arms.; Chapter 6 lets readers try out the skills they have acquired by tracing and copying a full-page manga illustration containing multiple characters.. These six lessons are supplemented by exercises for capturing the right facial expressions, drawing the clothes and getting the perspective and body proportions right. Beginning manga artists are in good hands with Morozumi, who lectures at art academies in Tokyo, and Mizuna, whose work has been exhibited in the U.S., Europe and beyond. If you've been looking for an easy-to-use guide to drawing manga, The Manga Artist's Handbook: Drawing Basic Characters is the perfect place to start!

Garden of Dreams Wall Calendar 2020
The elegant, dreamlike designs of Natalie L t turn a wall calendar into an object of desire. Drawing inspiration from folk art, vintage toys, and engravings of flowers and animals, Parisian artist Natalie L t 's work is colorful and poetic, sometimes mysterious, always charming. L t 's work is so distinctive and widely appealing that she has become a global brand, having garnered a cultlike following for her unique pop- and folk-art aesthetic. Her pieces have graced everything from dishes to postcards to clothing from Anthropologie, Chronicle, and Issey Miyake--and now it's on bold display in a calendar of rich illustrations that are like a magical trip down the rabbit hole. It's the best of L t in twelve iconic, poster-style images: a girl in a pinafore reading among blossoming flowers, a valley of tall mushrooms to get lost in, swooping bluebirds, a smartly dressed hare in a Breton shirt. The vibrancy of her paint and the texture of her brushstroke are irrepressibly rich, adding distinct elegance to any wall.
