Anatomy for the artist: The dynamics of the human Form

Arcturus UK 2002 
 Cardcover 208 crisp pp & 900g packed for post. Everyone understands that the internal structure of the body affects shape, posture and movement.

There's no unnecessary medical jargon, only stunning yet accurate artwork, showing the artist what he needs to know in order to bring the human form to life. review >> this reference book is immensely helpful, and I'd be surprised if even experienced artists didn't find it very useful.

Sharaku The Enigmatic Ukiyo-e Master
Narazaki, Muneshige
Kodansha International  1994 
 Hardcover an ex-lib copy in really nice order. 96 crisp pp, 1 kg to post. Rembrandt, Velazquez, and Toshusai Sharaku have been called the greatest portrait artists of all time. Of the three, Sharaku's name is undoubtedly the least widely known. This comparative obscurity may be due to the fact that Sharaku was ignored in his own country and time, Japan of the eighteenth century, and remained in obscurity until his powerful portraits of Kabuki actors were discovered over one hundred years later by Western artists and critics. Anyone with an eye for powerful, unflinching art will find the works herein infinitely worthy of their attention. Although we are still largely ignorant as to the identity of Sharaku, a few clues have come to light. The last section of the book, thus, is given over to the description of documents and works of art that may eventually lead to a fuller portrait of this great portrait artist.  Very Good/Very Good

Laurence King London 2001 
 Hardcover Will Allen Alsop, OBE RA (born 12 December 1947) is a British architect based in London. He is responsible for several distinctive and controversial modernist buildings, most in the United Kingdom. Alsop's buildings are usually distinguished by their use of bright colour and unusual forms. He is, according to an April 2007 article in The Observer, "obviously not a man familiar with gyms" Will Alsop is one of the most exciting British architects working today, responsible for such striking, often colourful, buildings as Le Grand Bleu in Marseilles, the Ferry Terminal in Hamburg and, more recently, the Sterling Prize-winning Peckham Library in south London. This, the first of two volumes on Alsop's work, examines not only his architecture, but also his distinctive creative process. Rarely for an architect, his first development of a new project is through paintings. This, the first of two volumes on Alsop's work, examines not only his architecture, but also his distinctive creative process.

The book ends by looking at the early designs for the landmark Hotel du Departement des Bouches-du-Rhone in Marseilles (Le Grand Bleu), the project that truly launched his career.

Erotic Art of China
Abraham Franzblau (intro) PS By Prof. Etiemble
Crown Publishers Inc. NY 1977 
 Hardcover 160pp clean white well-bound pp review > This book collects over fifty erotic images from the time of China's Ming dynasty. Although stylistically similar, they cover many moments between man and woman (or man and women, or woman and herself, ...). Some images depict the initial pursuit, but most depict sexual activity of one kind or another. In addition to their innate charm, these pictures also present cultural differences that I find appealing. Rendering of figures is much less literal than in Western art, and less dramatic than in Japanese shunga. Male and female figures differ little, except in hair styles, genitals, and the women's bound feet. Compared to Western exaggerations of figure, it leaves an impression that I enjoy, but can't put into words. approx 1 kg packed for post  Excellent/Good

Cabin on a Ridge
Simon, Howard
Follett USA 1970 
 Hardcover A 1930s Depresson-era memoir of this painter and book illlustrator author who, due to the times, was unable to make a living in New York and uprooted himself for the next five years to the Ozark Mountains. "In the Ozark Mountains, Howard Simon climbed a mountain and found the boundary of his homestead. The hospitable mountain people helped him build his log cabin, and he settled down to live among them. He shared their simple life, and friends and neighbors became his models in a series of paintings and wood engravings of the people and the surroundings. Usually he made two drawings of a subject; one was for the model. In time there was hardly a mountain cabin for miles around that did not have one or more of the drawings. This is a loving account of the artist's five years of life in the mountains, where he found what he had set out to find: an environment of green, silent beauty, and a chance to draw-and live among-the mountain people. 159pp  Very Good/Very Good

John Perceval
Allen, Traudi
Melbourne University Press Melbourne 1992 
 Papeback Attractively illustrated book which describes why John Perceval has earned a place in the front rank of Australia's leading painters. This book on Perceval's painting, surveys his career from the early years to the present and traces diverse influences on his work. Traudi Allen places Perceval's work in the context of its time. She explores the significance of the artist's friendship with Arthur Boyd, Sidney Nolan, Clifton Pugh, Fred Williams and others, and his marriage to Mary Boyd. She identifies his role in the revolutionary 1940s decade in Melbourne and shows how those years and those friendships helped to shape his art. The result of extensive research, this book brings together a representative selection of Perceval's paintings, from public and private collections -- many of them reproduced here for the first time. A "catalogue raisonne" enables the reader to trace Perceval's career from the teenager of 1937 to the artist of stature of 1980s. Dmpness has affected the top right hand corner "flatness" of the pages and this reflected in the low price. 900g 185pp, French flaps.  Good/None Issued

Wrestling with a Pencil The Life of a Freelance Artist
Thelwell, Norman
Methuen London 1986 1st
 Hardcover I can't do better than let you read this warm review >>> Norman Thelwell did in fact sell many of his paintings in his lifetime, but his brilliant artistic talent was not widely known or appreciated. Luckily, he became famous as a cartoonist, so that his income from newspapers, magazines and eventually books, gave him a comfortable lifestyle. He was such a modest man. But to him, drawing came easily. He said "I just draw what's in front of me" and could not understand why his friends were so impressed, and did not have the same ability. From a very young age, he carried a notebook and pencil, and could scarcely stop himself from drawing everything he saw. At the age of about ten, he asked his mother what he could draw, having already done a house, a boat and a car: busy with other things, she said "Oh, go and draw yourself, then!" which was a novel idea to the young boy, who went and did just that. The self-portait of his ten-year old self, is marked (probably by his teacher) as "V Good indeed". This lovely book is packed with many examples of the exquisite drawings and watercolour paintings that he produced throughout his life. As a young man of about 19, he did a black and white pen and ink drawing of the interior of a church: the detail is extraordinary, and this before he'd had any art training at all. After serving in the First World War, he took the opportunity of attending art college as a relatively mature student; then a few years later became a teacher of art. Although he had a lively sense of humour, and his ideas for cartoons came easily to him, he says that his main interest and love throughout his life was the natural world. His depictions of landscapes, trees, flowers and animals are delightful, and they all make this book hugely enjoyable. 192 crisp pp & about 800g packed to post - Thelwell Ardizzone Herge Lofting are Saints of the Pencil in my church.  Excellent/Very Good
