"Michael Roberts is the Jean Cocteau of the fashion world," wrote the celebrated New Yorker editor Tina Brown in 1997, welcoming her new fashion editor to the most prestigious magazine in the world Having already served for many years as a style editor (The London Sunday Times, Vanity Fair) and having produced numerous illustrations, обяър photographs, paintings, and columns of fashion criticism for various media, Roberts had already had his name coupled with Cocteau's, but his striking visual style is collected here for the first time From evocative pen-and-ink sketches to acrylic paintings to intensely witty New Yorker covers created from cut paper, these works capture the fads, foibles, and fashionability of our times Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue, in her introduction to "this beautiful book" calls them "fiendishly accurate satire " And the shoe guru Manolo Blahnik writes, "His drawings grasp fashion moments like a photo could never do " That a major part of the book was created through the painstaking method of paper collage especially appeals to the internationally famed fashion designer John Galliano He writes, "I have avidly collected his work, along with doing my own collages, for years, and I am honored to be a part of this book " --Grace Coddington Edited by Grace Coddington Essays by Manolo Blahnik, John Galliano and Andre Leon Tally Introduction by Tim Blanks, Michael Specter and Anna Wintour Clothbound, 10 x 13 in /288 pgs / Illustrated throughout. 2005 г Твердый переплет, 290 стр ISBN 3865211518.
New York's public-relations campaign is not likely to add "crazy city" to its already famous heart-icon declaration of love, but few would dispute the truth of noted German sculptor Isa Genzken's extension of it Only a mind as oriented toward heterogeneity as hers could capture New York in all its insane glory These three slipcased artist's обяъу books from the time Genzken spent in New York a decade ago are published here for the first time The collection both illuminates the working methods she uses in her sculptures and stands alone as a work of art itself The books contain, as do her other works, thoughtful if sundry conglomerations of the items that shape our everyday existence from design, advertising, and the media Particularly important to her are the relationships in the urban environment between public and private space, artistic autonomy and collective experience These explorations, as a window into the mind of this important artist or a window looking out onto the city, will bring repeated enjoyment and insight 3 Volumes, Slipcased Edited by Beatrix Ruf Slipcased, 12 x 15 in /360 pgs / Illustrated throughout. 2006 г Мягкая обложка, 360 стр ISBN 390570109X.

Anton Stankowski began his most serious work in the late 1920s, as a contemporary of the Zurich "Konkretes" who were also influenced by the Bauhaus He was a decorative painter and printmaker, as well as the creator of masterly, abstract photographs, clever advertising graphics and remarkable logos--outstanding examples of visualization обяыа in the applied arts Over the postwar years, he developed well-known logos for SEL, the SA?ddeutsche Rundfunk and Deutsche Bank, and a teaching concept for design in BildplA¤ne In celebration of Stankowski's centennial birthday, and in demonstration of his accidentally defining remark that "you can create a system for yourself, but you will only become good when you break out of it," this monograph presents the entire spectrum of his surprising and inventive works, which continue to set standards to this day. 2006 г Твердый переплет, 404 стр ISBN 3775717439.
