Book Description Relating to clothes is a fundamental experience in the lives of most Western women Even when choice is fraught with ambivalence, clothing matters From considerations about dressing for success, to worries about weight, through toinvesting particular articles of clothing with meaning bordering on the sacred, what we wear speaks обэмэ volumes about personal identity - what is revealed, what is concealed, what is created This book fills a gap in the existing literature on the ambivalence of fashion and dress by drawing on a wide range of women's experiences with their wardrobes and providing empirical data noticeably absent from other studies of women and dress Navigating what is clearly a contested realm in feminist scholarship, contributors provide rich case studies of the reality of women's relationships with clothing While on the surface concerns about fashion or dress may appear to reflect gendered patterns, in fact clothing may be used to challenge ascribed meanings about femininity. 2003 г 256 стр ISBN 1859733883.
In the late 1980s the rave phenomenon swept the youth culture of the United Kingdom, incorporating the generations' two newest social stimulants: modern electronic dance music and a notorious designer drug known as Ecstasy Although the movement began in rebellion against mainstream culture, its underground dynamism soon attracted the interest обэмя of novelists, screenwriters, and filmmakers who attempted to reflect the phenomenon in their works Through artistic and commercial popularization, the once obscure subculture was transformed into a pop-culture behemoth with powerful links to the entertainment industry This study deals with the transformative effects of film, television and literature on club culture Chapters furthermore reflect club culture's own effect on crime, ethnicity, sexuality and drug use As the study traces artistic depictions of club culture's development, each chapter focuses on individual books, films and television shows that reflect the transformation of the club culture into what it is today Автор Stan Beeler Stan Beeler.

Book DescriptionThanks to a variety of factors--among them a culture uniquely rich in the visual arts, an artisanal pride in fine printing, and an innate predisposition toward the grand and passionate--Italy produced perhaps the finest film posters in the world for much of the 20th century Though the distinctive tradition of Italian film posters обэнк is well known to European collectors and cinephiles--and the work of poster artists such as Anselmo Ballester, Alfredo Capitani, and Luigi Martinati is displayed in museums and commands high prices at auctions--this national genre remains largely unknown to the American public Italian Film Posters is the first collection of these inventive, colorful, and highly evocative images to be published in English The book offers an overview of the Italian tradition, beginning with the Art Nouveau-influenced designs of the silent era, moving into the stunning lithographs of the 30s and 40s, and concluding with the gloriously idiosyncratic creations made possible by offset printing in the 50s and 60s Blending wildly different influences--from the luminous realism of the Renaissance to the furious distortions of the Expressionists--these fascinating works are products both of a global popular culture and intensely personal visions Featuring posters for: Operation Secret, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Four Ways Out, Man Escaped, The Cowboy and the Lady, Song to Remember, Rear Window,The Fountainhead, The Restless Years, Affairs of a Rogue, Camp on Blood Island, Bandit of Zhobe, My Name is Julia Ross, Jolson Sings Again, A Fistful of Dollars, Rumble on the Docks, Lafayette Escadrille, Screaming Mimi, The Long Haul, Gun Fury, Texas and more Essay by Dave Kehr Hardcover, 9 x 11 in /160 pgs / 125 color and 25 b&w illustrations. 2003 г 160 стр ISBN 0870706926.

Eric Ravilious : Imagined Realities артикул 1022a.
Book Description The English artist Eric Ravilious (1903-42) was a painter of watercolours and murals, a book illustrator in wood engraving and lithography, and a designer of transfer-ware, pottery and porcelain From 1939 till his death he was an Official War Artist This book presents a full retrospective of all aspects of his work, culminating обэмю in the final phase of his war artist work Ravilious is well known to a circle of collectors and admirers who feel no need to explain his work Partly as a result of this, he has tended to remain isolated from the broader art historical narratives of the period This book is the first sustained attempt to understand his appeal and importance using a wider artistic and historical context In addition to being a straight retrospective the book interprets Ravilious's work on the basis of documentary sources and more recent readings of art and ideas The book positions Ravilious in a European and American context of the period, identifying artists and designers whose work shows similar characteristics and require a historical grouping separate from modernism The combination of 'fine' and 'applied' art in Ravilious's oeuvre is explored as an exemplar of the Art and Industry movement of the inter-war period which ran parallel to modernism The book also deals with the questions of English identity that arise from Ravilious's work and his important role in developing new perceptions of Englishness in the period Thebook accompanies an exhibition opening at the Imperial War Museum, London, in October 2003. 2004 г 144 стр ISBN 0856675679.
