    Title: Kirchner
    Author: WOLF NORBERT

    Bridging the gap
    Expressionist pioneer Ernst Ludwig Kirchner heralded a new perspective in 20th-century painting

    Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880 1938) is regarded as one of the key figures in 20th-century European art. A Modernist to his bones, he sent seismic waves through the art world with his hard-edged, intensely colored paintings and disseminated his ideas through Die Brucke art movement and the MUIM-Institut school of modernist painting, both of which he cofounded.

    Kirchner s work reconciled past and present through an Expressionist prism, reflecting the latest avant-garde ideas in art, while exploring traditional academic approaches and subjects. His works tackled social, moral, and emotional questions with a fierce intensity. Distorted perspectives, rough lines, and unusual colors were mainstays of his practice, as well as a recurring interest in capturing the human form, whether in frenetic city vistas such as Berlin Street Scene (1913) or in his famously decadent studio.

    In this introductory book, we explore the stretch of Kirchner s career through Germany and Switzerland, including his founding of Die Brucke, and his inclusion in the Nazis infamous degenerate art exhibition in 1937. Along the way, we ll encounter vivid landscapes, stark nudes, intense urban settings, and, above all, a persistent emphasis on the emotional experience of painter and viewer.

    About the series:
    Each book in TASCHEN s Basic Art series features:
    • a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance

    “Though he delivers almost thirty projects in this premiere volume, Yuhas is just warming up. We'll be hearing more from him: Someday we'll look back and say, this is the book that launched a thousand cone hats.” —Vogue Knitting

    Title: Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds: 12 Miniature Structures You Can Build to Enhance Your Yard or Neighborhood
    Author: SCHMIDT PHILIP

    Expand the sharing movement to your community with Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds--your complete source for building tiny sharing structures, including plans for 12 different structures, step-by-step photography and instructions, inspirational examples, and maintenance.

    Around the world, a community movement is underway featuring quaint landscape structures mounted on posts in front yards and other green spaces. Some are built for personal use, as miniature sheds for gardeners or as decorative accent pieces. More commonly, though, they are evidence of the growing trend toward neighborhood organization and community outreach.

    This movement has been popularized by Wisconsin-based Little Free Library (LFL), whose members currently include 75,000 stewards seeking to build community togetherness and promote reading at the same time by sharing books among neighbors. LFL has inspired builders to use similar structures to share things like CDs, food, garden tools, and seeds in the community.

    Produced in cooperation with Little Free Library, Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is the builder's complete source of inspiration and how-to knowledge. Illustrated throughout with colorful step-by-step photography and a gallery of tiny structures for further inspiration, Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds covers every step: planning and design, tools and building techniques, best materials, and 12 complete plans for structures of varying size and aesthetics. In addition, author and professional carpenter Phil Schmidt includes information on proper installation of small structures and common repairs and maintenance for down the road.

    Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds even includes information on how to become a steward, getting the word out about your little structure once it's up and running, and tips for building a lively collection.

    Community togetherness has never been so at the fore of our consciousness--or so important. Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is one tool on the road to helping you build community in your neighborhood.

    Title: Made in Holland The Global Success of Dutch Ceramics
    Author: GAILLARD KARIN

    - A history of 400 years of Dutch ceramics, from the famous Delft, past the colourful Maastricht pottery and the flamboyant Art Nouveau, to the latest Dutch design creations Blue Delft, Maastricht earthenware, Gouda pottery and Dutch Design: for centuries, ceramics from the Netherlands have enjoyed worldwide popularity. Imitation has been one key to success, but inventiveness and sensitivity to consumer demand have been still more important. Initially an imitation of Chinese porcelain, Dutch delftware became in the 17th century a popular export product in its own right. Petrus Regout brought English specialists to Maastricht to help him imitate the popular British creamware with its transfer-printed designs. From the mid-19th century, he was one of the greatest producers, serving a global market. Around 1900, Dutch designers developed their own variant of international art nouveau. Shown at the world's fairs of the period, their innovative 'vernieuwingsaardewerk' attracted lively interest outside the Netherlands. In today's Dutch Design, the marriage of traditional craft skills to the potential of new industrial technology generates inventive and playful designs. Products travel the world, but so do the designers and their conceptual approach. Made in Holland shows how the Netherlands has become a world player in the ceramics field.
