    Art of Perspective, The

    Perspective is the art of understanding and reproducing the space surrounding us - an attempt to 'flatten' what is seen on a sheet of paper. It links graphic combinations to explain space just as language links words to explain thought. Perspective passes through an awareness of the space surrounding us. It puts at stake the artist's deductive ability to capture a place, a direction or the way a surface behaves. It's about establishing the interplay between spatial reasoning and visual disorder, sorting out information and providing a viewing point; conveying a 'graphic' space and 'spatial' graphics. This clear and richly illustrated book with more than 400 diagrams introduces artists, graphic designers and architects to the principles of perspective so that they can create their own illusion of reality.

    Labeling America: Popular Culture on Cigar Box Labels

    Discover the beauty of cigar box labels and bands from the 19th and 20th centuries, printed by George Schlegel Lithographers and collected by John Grossman; currently being housed at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware. Cigar box labels in the late 19th and early 20th centuries were not only amusing and beautiful to admire, they were a testament to the printing process of chromolithography and an important precursor to today's methods of product advertising. Labeling America: Cigar Box Designs as Reflections of Popular Culture showcases the unique collection of John Grossman which covers 90 years of cigar box labels and bands printed by four generations of George Schlegel Lithographers. What makes this archive unique is that the Schlegel Company kept meticulous sample albums and files showing an unbroken record of American graphic style evolution. The work of many other lithographers of that era either destroyed or irreversibly dispersed their work. Now housed at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware, the carefully cataloged Grossman collection gives a glimpse into life at the turn of the century, when over 5 billion cigars were being sold in the United States via boxes with colorful labels depicting everything from women, animals, and sports icons to actors, heroes, and political figures. This book takes these beautifully printed slices of American culture and combines them with the history of chromolithography into an interesting story of America's changing tastes and graphic standards.
