Painting as Model, Bois, Yve-Alain; Krauss, Rosalind E. (Preface by)
1 Bois, Yve-Alain; Krauss, Rosalind E. (Preface by)
Painting as Model
Cambridge, MA MIT Press; An October Book 1993 0262521806 / 9780262521802 5th printing Trade Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xxx, 327 pp., illus., biblio., index; 23 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stimulating essays on modern & contemporary art. Bois wrote his dissertation under Roland Barthes. "Informed by both structuralism and poststructuralism, these essays by art critic and historian Yve Alain Bois seek to redefine the status of theory in modernist critical discourse. Warning against the uncritical adoption of theoretical fashions and equally against the a priori rejection of all theory, Bois argues that theory is best employed in response to the specific demands of a critical problem. The essays lucidly demonstrate the uses of various theoretical approaches in conjunction with close reading of both paintings and texts. / Yve-Alain Bois was a founder of the French journal Macula and a Fellow at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris. He is currently Professor of the History of Art at Harvard University." - Publisher.

Screen: Essays on Graphic Design, New Media, and Visual Culture, Helfand, Jessica; Maeda, John (Introduction by)

Screen: Essays on Graphic Design, New Media, and Visual Culture
New York Princeton Architectural Press 2001 1568983107 / 9781568983103 First Edition, First Printing Trade Paperback Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xxi, 175 pp., index; 21 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First Edition." "Designer and critic Jessica Helfand has emerged as a leading voice of a new generation of designers. Her essays--at once pithy, polemical, and precise--appear in places as diverse as Eye, Print, ID, The New Republic, and the LA Times. The essays collected here decode the technologies, trends, themes, and personalities that define design today, especially 'the new media,' and provide a road map of things to come. Her first two chapbooks--Paul Rand: American Modernist and Six (+2) Essays on Design and New Media--became instant classics. This new compilation brings together essays from the earlier publications along with more than twenty others on a variety of topics including avatars, 'the cult of the scratchy,' television, sex on the screen, and more. Designers, students, educators, visual literati, and everyone looking for an entertaining and insightful guide to the world of design today will not find a better or more approachable book on the subject." - Publisher. CONTENTS: Introduction: John Maeda. Myth. One, two, three, faux: the myth of real time; Television did it first: ten myths about "new" media; Me, the undersigned. Virtuality. Teasing the nerves: the art of technological persuasion; Dematerialization of screen space; Modern life and the univernacular. Aesthetics. De Stijl, new media and the lessons of geometry; Sensory montage: rethinking fusion and fragmentation; Minimalism/maximalism: the new screen aesthetic. Media. Bigger, better, weirder: age of the behemoth; Surveillance and the modern spectator; Spin and the (pseudo) screen event; The dynamics of choice and the death of hierarchy. Typography. The new illiteracy; Cult of the scratchy; Electronic typography: the new visual language; The big reveal and the dance of the mouse. Film. New media, new narrative: the lost legacy of film; On sound, authenticity, and cultural amnesia; The remembered image. Design. Paul Rand: the modern designer; Paul Rand: the modern professor. Epilogue. Sticks and stones can break my bones but print can never hurt me.

Dutch Moderne: Graphic Design from De Stijl to Deco
San Francisco Chronicle Books 1994 0811803031 / 9780811803038 First Edition, First Printing Soft Cover Very Good Oblong 
132 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio.; 21 cm. Tight, clean copy. Light edgewear to wraps. Erasure rubbing/front free endpaper. "Despite Holland's small size, its contribution to twentieth-century avant-garde design has been profound. The first English-language book to document the elegant typography and streamlined imagery representative of Dutch art moderne between the two world wars, many previously unpublished in the United States, this exquisite volume showcases over 200 graphic design motifs from the Netherlands representing cultural as well as commercial concerns. From packaging and advertising to magazines and trademarks--as interesting for their social, political, and historical significance as they are graphically appealing--this colorful examination of how a brief artistic movement has contributed to a national style will make a welcome addition to the design bookshelf. / Steven Heller is the art director of the New York Times Book Review. He is the author of over ninety books on graphic design, popular art, and satiric art. He lives in New York City." - Publisher.
