Intellectual, emotional, restless, dogged, loyal, selfish; Kandinsky was an artist — and a man — of contradictions. This genre-defying painter didn't pick up a brush until he was thirty years old. He was an academic with a promising career that he threw away to explore the arts. He was a Russian, yet he spent more than half of his life on the road, and died in self-imposed exile in France. As an artist he is credited with history's first abstract painting, but it was his theories that had a profound and lasting impact on the way that people understand and value what art can achieve. Richly illustrated with specially commissioned artworks and 20 of Kandinsky's major works, this is Kandinsky forms the perfect introduction to the life of this revolutionary figure in twentieth-century art.

100 Ideas that Changed Street Style is a look-by-look dissection of the key ideas that changed the way we dress — from the middle of the 20th century to the present day — explaining the most iconic items of clothing and how they were worn, what the look was born of, its cultural background, how it was received and how it still resonates in fashion today. The modern wardrobe owes its development not just to fashion designers in Paris or Milan but also to gangs and movements brought together by a shared appreciation of music, sport or a particular underground culture, and a certain style that defines membership. These styles have rocked establishments, created stereotypes, expressed social division as much as they have united people, entered the language, spread around the world and, above all, transformed dress for a wider public.

In 1956 Time magazine referred to Pollock as 'Jack the Dripper'. His iconic paintings stretch out with the generosity and scale of the landscape of America's West where the artist grew up. Pollock said that he painted 'out of his consciousness': the cathartic dribbled paint reflected his troubled mind. This book traces Pollock's career and discusses how his loose, individual style was used as a political weapon in the Cold War, representing America as the free, democratic nation. Illustrations simplify the theory and reveal the hidden meaning behind the mesh of painted lines. Series writer Catherine Ingram brings her extensive knowledge to the book, while specially commissioned illustrations by New York-based illustrator Peter Arkle vividly portray the text.

The real world is full of cameras; the virtual world is full of images. Where does all this photographic activity leave the artist-photographer? Post-Photography tries to answer that question by investigating the exciting new language of photographic image-making that is emerging in the digital age of anything-ispossible and everything-has-been-done-before. Found imagery has become increasingly important in post-photographic practice, with the internet serving as a laboratory for a major kind of imagemaking experimentation. But artists also continue to create entirely original works using avant-garde techniques drawn from both the digital and analogue eras. This book is split into five sections Something Borrowed, Something New; Layers of Reality; All the World Is Staged; Hand and Eye; and Post — Photojournalism which cover the key strategies adopted by 53 of the most exciting and innovative international artist-photographers of the 21st century.

Printed brochures, catalogues and 'multi-page' documents form the bedrock of many graphic designers' daily practice. Most printed literature is disposable: today's hot communication document is tomorrow's landfill. But the best brochures, catalogues and documents have a permanence and organic completeness that has become important in the ephemeral, and increasingly electronic, world of instant communications. This book features the best of contemporary printed literature. It offers a critical survey of current graphic design, showing work by leading practitioners from the USA, Europe and Japan. Arranged in a designer-by-designer format and accompanied by interviews with some of the designers responsible for the featured work, this book offers a complete and informative picture of this popular subject.
