It is easy to see why brands often turn to depictions of animals in their identity materials. A brand can turn to the figure of an animal to evoke freedom, pride, or power, or just as easily associate themselves with loyalty, reliability, or playfulness. Restaurants may use them to artistically touch on the contents of their menu or their particular ideology; corporations to distinguish themselves in a world of plain symbols and vector art. Animal Graphics explores the wide range of possibilities with animal imagery, capturing these wild designs in their native habitats of artwork, publications, and personal and corporate branding and identities.

As the fascination with plastic is now over for both aesthetic and environmental reasons, more and more designers are going back to one of the most traditional materials: glass. Free of any synthetic characteristics, glass is authentic and, if treated with skill and imagination, it can provide stunning results. Designing Transparency features the glasswork of a myriad of designers dedicated to creating visually striking and sustainable pieces. Glass has been used for centuries to create tableware or design objects, but now designers from all over the world are pushing the boundaries of the material’s optical properties. Playing with transparency can lead to intriguing solutions. The featured designs in this book — such as screens, carafes, lamps, tables, seating, and shelves, all made from glass — show the possibilities for introducing visual lightness into spaces via transparency. Each photograph is accompanied by text describing the designer’s connection with glassware artistry, and provides analysis of the individual pieces and their visual appeal.

From Cliche to Archetype

Six years after the publication of his seminal work, Understanding Media, the Extensions of Man, Marshall McLuhan linked his insights into media to his love of literature and produced From Cliche to Archetype. “In the age of electronic retrieval, the entire phenomenal universe is at once junkyard and museum” — cliche and archetype. “Every culture now rides on the back of every other culture.” In these pages, readers learn how to look at stale cliches with fresh eyes, as artists do, and discover that cliches provide the key to understanding Modernism, from the puns of James Joyce to Ionesco’s Theater of the Absurd. McLuhan mines the greats of modern literature, such as Yeats, Eliot, and Pound, and points the way to richer understanding of their work. Discussion ranges over conventional topics of literary analysis such as genres, esthetics, rhetoric, paradox, mimesis, and parody, though never in conventional fashion, because McLuhan deliberately stakes his turf in a manner that draws technology and culture together. As a result, the key terms cliche and archetype are not confined to language but are shown to have counterparts in the non-linguistic world. The present work reprises themes from Understanding Media, such as old media becoming the content of new media, and identifies for the first time the typical effect of a new technology retrieving an older form of technology. In this new and redesigned publication of McLuhan’s neglected masterpiece, W. Terrence Gordon provides a richer reading with concise chapter introductions.

A sumptuous feast of a book, Frida allows the reader to enter this revered artist’s world, both literally and metaphorically. Through a series of consecutive die-cut pages, one is drawn in — passing through aspects of her life, art and creative process while exploring the themes that inspired her most, such as love, death and maternity. Iconic and visceral, her work has always had the ability to transcend borders and resonate with its honest and graphic depiction of the human condition. Until now, there has never been a greater homage. Excerpts from Frida Kahlo’s personal diaries alternate with Sebastian Perez’s poetic musings to give fresh insight and emotional depth, while Benjamin Lacombe’s stunning artwork masterfully conveys the symbolism and surrealism of her art. A must for any fan or bibliophile.
