Серия: "-"

In the modern era, the“beautiful book”, an art object in its own right, has become the key to the ongoing attraction of print publishing as physical books continue to distinguish themselves from the screen. Author Martin Salisbury traces the evolution of the book jacket from its functional origins as a plain dust protector for expensively bound books to its elaboration as an artistic device to catch the eye of browsing book buyers. The increasing awareness A lively text that introduces the work of the Impressionists. Drawn together by a common desire to bring a new kind of realism to painting, these artists employed a revolutionary treatment of colour and light, creating a breadth of expression, mood and atmosphere. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the entire Impressionist movement, and contains illustrations reproducing the works of such artists as Cezanne, Degas, Gaugin, Monet, Renior and Van Gogh, with explanatory commentary for each work of art and biographies of each of the artists.
