This volume has an entirely original approach to the subject: it features postcards from the 1920s to 1940s--from nightclubs, hotels, and restaurants to skyscrapers, apartment buildings, and airports--each landmark or interior immortalized in miniature.

    Emblems of the era, such as the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, appear, as well as a selection of less well-known fac¸ades and interiors from around the world. The expositions and world fairs that drove the development of the style were often ephemeral displays, and the book captures these structures that are no longer on the map but have left an enduring legacy.

    The geometric shapes and natural forms, captured with exceptional precision in Ernst Haeckel's prints, still influence artists and designers to this day. This volume highlights the research and findings of this natural scientist. Powerful modern microscopes have confirmed the accuracy of Haeckel's prints, which even in their day, became world famous. Haeckel's portfolio, first published between 1899 and 1904 in separate installments, is described in the opening essays. The plates illustrate Haeckel's fundamental monistic notion of the "unity of all living things" and the wide variety of forms are executed with utmost delicacy. Incipient microscopic organisms are juxtaposed with highly developed plants and animals. The pages, ordered according to geometric and "constructive" aspects, document the oness of the world in its most diversified forms. This collection of plates was not only well-received by scientists, but by artists and architects as well. Rene Binet, a pioneer of glass and iron constructions, Emile Galle, a renowned Art Nouveau designer, and the photographer Karl Blossfeld all make explicit reference to Haeckel in their work.

In this new book the focus is not on the movies themselves, but on the vast hoard of artwork which Harryhausen has carefully preserved in his London home. These include preliminary sketches, elaborate drawings of key scenes and carefully plotted storyboards, all produced as he sought backing for his next venture and prepared to undertake the laborious task of animating the prehistoric creatures, aliens and mythical monsters which stole scene after scene from the human actors. There are also the tiny, elaborately articulated models which Harryhausen created to play these roles and the bronzes which he cast to preserve their forms in perpetuity.This stunning array of images is a tribute to the scope of Harryhausen's imagination and his artistic skills which no student of special effects or cinema history will want to be without.

    Robert E. McGinnis began his career in 1947 as a cartoonist, and produced his first cover illustrations for 1956 issues of the magazines "True Detective "and "Master Detective." Then in 1958, he painted his first paperback book cover, and from that day forward his work was in demand.
    The emergence of the "McGinnis Woman"--long-legged, intelligent, alluring, and enigmatic--established him as the go-to artist for detective novels. His work appeared on Mike Shayne titles and the Perry Mason series, and he produced 100 paintings for the Carter Brown adventures. Yet McGinnis became famous for his work in other genres as well: espionage, romance, historicals, gothics, and Westerns.
    McGinnis's first major magazine assignments were for "The Saturday Evening Post," and his work has graced the pages of "Cosmopolitan," "National Geographic," "Good Housekeeping," "Guideposts," and others. McGinnis women frequently cropped up in the men's magazines of the '60s and '70s.
    His first movie poster was for "Breakfast at Tiffany's," with an iconic rendering of Audrey Hepburn. Almost instantly, his poster artwork could be seen everywhere--in theaters, on billboards, in newspapers, and even on soundtrack albums. His work for Hollywood became a who's-who, with posters for James Bond, "The Odd Couple," Woody Allen, "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes," and many more.
    Some of his most ambitious works have been his gallery paintings, often depicting stunning American landscapes, vast Western vistas, and of course, beautiful women. "The Art of Robert E. McGinnis" collection reveals the full scope and beauty of the work of a true American master--one whose legacy continues today.

    Title: Autobiography of a Snake

    This is the never-before-published story of a snake trying to make it in the world of sixties high society, strongly suggested to be a stand-in for Warhol himself. The snake's tongue-in-cheek observations as he slithers from adorning Jackie Kennedy's boots to embellishing Coco Chanel's shirt will delight the sophisticated fashion crowd. But the stars of the show are Warhol's whimsical illustrations, revivified with a color scheme inspired by his iconic Pop Art.
    Before he achieved his dream of making it big in New York, Andy Warhol worked in advertising for a leather goods company, Fleming-Joffe, alongside Ogden Nash and Piero Fornasetti. It was for Fleming-Joffe that he created these images, held by the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and rarely seen until this deluxe publication. The Autobiography of a Snake is a brilliant portrait of Warhol's obsessions, his talent, and the world he would one day conquer.

    Title: Beloved Dog
    Author: KALMAN MAIRA

    "Maira Kalman, with wit and great sensitivity, reveals why dogs bring out the best in us"

    Maira Kalman + Dogs = Bliss

    Dogs have lessons for us all. In" Beloved Dog," renowned artist and author Maira Kalman illuminates our cherished companions as only she can. From the dogs lovingly illustrated in her acclaimed children s books to the real-life pets who inspire her still, Kalman s "Beloved Dog"is joyful, beautifully illustrated, and, as always, deeply philosophical.

    Here is Max Stravinsky, the dog poet of "Oh-La-La (Max in Love)"-fame, and her own Irish Wheaton Pete (almost named Einstein, until he revealed himself to be clearly no Einstein ), who also made an appearance in the delightful "What Pete Ate: From A to Z." And of course, there is Boganch, Kalman s in-laws big black slobbering Hungarian Beast. And that s just the beginning.

    With humor and intelligence, Kalman gives voice to the dogs she adores, noting that they are constant reminders that life reveals the best of itself when we live fully in the moment and extend unconditional love. And it is very true, she writes, that the most tender, complicated, most generous part of our being blossoms without any effort, when it comes to the love of a dog. "
