    Title: Akira Yoshizawa: Japan's Greatest Origami Artist

    This collection of projects by the "father of modern origami" contains detailed instructions for 60 of the master's original works.

    Master origami artist Akira Yoshizawa was a true innovator who played a seminal role in the rebirth of origami in the modern world. He served as a bridge between past and present--between the ancient traditional craft and the development of origami as a contemporary practice--inventing new techniques and in preserving the traditional Japanese forms. In fact, the notational system of diagrams widely used today to indicate how models are folded was developed mainly by him. Above all, Yoshizawa was responsible for elevating origami to the status of an art form.

    This beautiful origami book is the first comprehensive survey of the extraordinary work of Akira Yoshizawa. In addition to 60 models from his private collection, it features over 1,000 original drawings by the artist, and English translations of his writings in Japanese on origami, all of which are published here for the very first time.

    Origami projects include:

    • The Koinobori and the Helmet
    • Butterflies of Every Kind
    • Fairy Tale Crowns and Caps
    • The Lion Mask
    • The Tengu Masks
    • and much more
    Akira Yoshizawa also contains an explanation of the Master's personal philosophy of origami by Yoshizawa's widow, Kiyo Yoshizawa and an insightful introduction from Robert Lang, a leading artist and exponent of origami art in the West.

    Title: Almost Lost Arts Traditional Crafts & the Artisans Keeping Them Alive

    Since the Industrial Revolution, humans have been mechanising and digitising processes previously done by hand. But craftsmanship isn't lost to the footnotes of history. Meet the makers, fixers, and collectors dedicated to preserving traditional handicrafts. Brittany Nicole Cox repairs antique clocks; Anita Rodríguez and Joanna Keane Lopez build and preserve traditional adobe structures; Simon Vernon roves the British countryside drawing maps by hand; Lee Eun Bum maintains a ceramic tradition from tenth-century Korea.

    Almost Lost Arts& pays tribute to these artisans, celebrating human ingenuity and tactile beauty. Twenty in-depth profiles& and stunning full-colour photography transport the reader to workshops across the globe, from Kyoto to Oaxaca, and from Milan to Tennessee. Two essays - by a calligraphy expert and the curator of Harvard's Forbes Pigment Library, respectively - explore the experience of engaging deeply with tradition. The book is lovingly curated by Emily Freidenrich and features a deluxe three-piece case with foil stamping.

    Title: Anatomy for the Artist

    Unlock your inner artist and learn how to draw the human body in this beautifully illustrated art book by celebrated artist and teacher Sarah Simblet.

    In Anatomy for the Artist, Sarah reveals the extraordinary structure of the human
    body. Combining specially-commissioned photographs of models with historical
    and contemporary works of art and her own dynamic life drawing, she leads us inside the human body to map its skeleton, muscle groups, and body systems. Detailed line drawings superimposed over photographs reveal the links between what the body looks like and its internal construction. Six drawing classes show how to observe different parts of the body - from top to toe - and give expert guidance on how to draw them. Inspirational master classes on famous works, ranging from a Michelangelo study to a Degas painting, show how artists have depicted the human body over the centuries. Each master class includes a photograph of a model holding the same pose as in the painting, to highlight details of anatomy and show how the artist has interpreted them.

    Understanding anatomy is the key to drawing the human body successfully. As well as being the perfect reference, Anatomy for the Artist will inspire you to find a model, reach for your pencil, and start drawing.
