American Pin Up
They've been exciting generations of men, on calendars and covers, as centrefolds or even on playing cards: pin-ups. What started as an exercise in oils was soon taken up in various media - pin-up mascots graced the fuselages of American fighters, and became an essential feature of the male world of garages and barracks. And the age of political correctness hasn't ended their appeal. This book tells the tale of a genre as utterly American as the paintings of Edward Hopper, describing its origins and development in detail and showcasing the most important artists. With over 900 illustrations, "The Great American Pin-Up" is a comprehensive study of the pin-up genre.
Kay Scarpetta has been training at the Dover Port Mortuary, mastering the art of 'virtual autopsy' - a groundbreaking procedure that could soon revolutionise forensic science. And it is not too long before these new skills urgently need to be put into practice. A young man drops dead, apparently from a heart condition, eerily close to Scarpetta's home. But when his body is examined the next morning, there are stunning indications that he may have been alive when he was zipped inside a pouch and locked in the cooler. When the revolutionary 3D radiology scans reveal more shocking details about internal injuries unlike any Scarpetta has ever seen, she realizes that this is a case of murder - and that she is fighting a cunning and uniquely cruel enemy. Now it is a race against time to discover who and why before more people die. But that time is running out ...
Fashion Designers Sketchbooks
A revealing, comprehensive and colourful insight into the design process, "Fashion Designers Sketchbooks" explores many major names working in the fashion industry today. Photographs, sketches, mood boards, line-ups, toiles, fabric swatches and more all contribute to the creation of ideas for fashion designs, and here they are brought together for the first time to show how the final work is conceived and developed. Garments on the catwalk are juxtaposed with lookbooks, the original research material, and with finished illustrations giving a new perspective on the working methods of leading international designers. This approach makes the book a fascinating resource for both students and designers. Numerous leading designers, including John Galliano for Dior, Luella and Christian Lacroix, are interviewed alongside their sketchbooks, discussing the roles they play in evolution of their work, and how they inform and encourage their creative processes. The result is in an inspirational overview of cutting-edge design today.
Lucian Freud (Paperback)
It is both startling and disconcerting, producing some of the most powerful and moving visual images to have appeared in the last thirty years. Freud once dubbed "the Ingres of existentialism" has almost single-handedly redefined the figurative painting of our time. No other living artist possesses his ability to paint the texture and thinness of skin over flesh, and his distinctive portraits have a haunting quality that makes them impossible to forget. This volume, with over one hundred superb reproductions of his greatest paintings, pays tribute to one of the most original and accomplished artists of the twentieth century.
