Introducing Culture Identities


An inside look by designers and clients at graphic design's main playground and proving ground--working for cultural institutions. Originality is the guiding principle of art and culture. The visual communication of museums, theaters, and other cultural institutions is no less pioneering. One would be hard pressed to find another area of graphic design in which the work is so fresh and experimental and so often blazes trails for future visual trends. Young designers often get their first breaks working for cultural institutions, where they can prove themselves creatively. Through work for these types of clients, established studios can also remain agile and experiment with new forms of visual expression. Today, cultural institutions are proving to be extraordinarily open to breaking new ground where art meets logos, culture meets commerce, and design meets curation. In this way, they are becoming catalysts for cutting-edge design concepts and innovative styles produced by designers who are often as visionary as the clients for whom they work. Introducing: Culture Identities is a collection of outstanding design work for international cultural institutions. The book features poster campaigns, publications, and corporate design--much of which is designed to function across various media platforms. Extensive features introduce relevant topics and lend insight from two key perspectives. On the one hand, the book gives voice to designers such as Bureau Mirko Borsche or the New York-based studio 2x4 who are especially active in the cultural field. On the other hand, readers hear from notables on the client side including MoMA, the Barbican, Van Abbemuseum, and documenta. With its collection of stunning visual examples, Introducing: Culture Identities reveals what is state-of-the-art in today's graphic design. The book inspires designers and cultural institutions to understand each other better and continue to push the limit of what is possible creatively.

Velo 2nd Gear


Choosing a particular bicycle conveys an attitude and a way of life. For a young generation, bicycles have now replaced cars as the vehicles that best express its identity and this book shows why. Riding a bike is easy. Once someone can do it, they will never forget how. Riding a bike can be addictive--in the best cases for life. Understanding the subtleties of contemporary bicycle culture can be challenging. Like it or not, choosing to ride a particular bike--whether an old-fashioned city bicycle, a high-tech machine, a mountain bike, a touring bike, a fixie, or a beach cruiser--means being associated with a certain lifestyle. Velo--2nd Gear explores these diverse bicycle scenes and reveals their histories, relationships, and insightful details. Alongside its presentation of especially attractive and unusual bicycles, the book documents how riders' accessories and styles vary just as widely as the bikes' tires and other equipment. It explains how each scene cultivates its own distinct codes through the choice of certain jerseys, caps, or bags or by visiting specific events or key establishments. The examples in Velo--2nd Gear span the globe. Tours in traditional costumes and on historical paths in Belgium or Italy are not only appealing as athletic challenges, but also as adventures for cosmopolitan travelers. In urban centers at night, bicycle messengers hold races on city streets. Specialized bike boutiques focus on details such as customized paint jobs. Frame builders in Oregon, Paris, or southern Germany create highly coveted bikes tailored to individuals or in very limited editions with long waiting lists. Velo--2nd Gear makes abundantly clear that contemporary bicycle culture is more alive and well than ever before. The book celebrates its healthy, environmentally-friendly, discerning, and slightly obsessive scenes and their protagonists. It shows why, for a young generation, bicycles have now replaced cars as the vehicles that best express its identity.

Map of the World


Maps help us understand the world. This book features the most original and sought-after map illustrators whose work is in line with the zeitgeist.Drawing a map means understanding our world a bit better. For centuries, we have used the tools of cartography to represent both our immediate surroundings and the world at large--and to convey them to others. On the one hand, maps are used to illustrate areal relationships, including distances, dimensions, and topographies. On the other, maps can also serve as projection screens for a variety of display formats, such as illustration, data visualization, and visual storytelling. In our age of satellite navigation systems and Google Maps, personal interpretations of the world around us are becoming more relevant. Publications, the tourism industry, and other commercial parties are using these contemporary, personal maps to showcase specific regions, to characterize local scenes, to generate moods, and to tell stories beyond sheer navigation. A new generation of designers, illustrators, and mapmakers are currently discovering their passion for various forms of illustrative cartography. A Map of the World is a compelling collection of their work--from accurate and surprisingly detailed representations to personal, naive, and modernistic interpretations. The featured projects from around the world range from maps and atlases inspired by classic forms to cartographic experiments and editorial illustrations.

Kawaii!


Although some trace the phenomenon of Kawaii as far back as Japan's Taisho era, it emerged most visibly in the 1970s, when schoolgirls instigated a quiet calligraphic rebellion. From cute stationery to illustrations, followed by manga, Hello Kitty, Harajuku, and, ultimately, a pervasive culture of cute that touches every aspect of Japanese life: from the robotics industry to the postal service, architecture to food. As colourful as its subject matter, this book contains numerous interviews with illustrators, graphic artists, fashion designers, scientists, and scholars. It explores the phenomena of Harajuku, Sanrio, and girls' manga, and traces the roots of Kawaii from sociological and anthropological perspectives. It also looks at Kawaii's darker sides as it morphs into gothic and gloomy iterations. Best of all, this book illustrates the cultural movement through hundreds of colourful photographs that capture Kawaii's utter ubiquity: on the streets and inside homes, on lunchboxes and airplanes, in haute couture and street fashion, in cafes, museums, and hotels. Perfect for page-flipping or cover-to-cover reading, this entertaining and authoritative volume will leave readers with a deeper understanding of Japanese culture.

Mimosezóna


Výpravně provedená sbírka písňových textů a ilustrací Jaromíra Švejdíka. Jaromír 99 je jednou z nejvýraznějších osobností domácí umělecké scény. V devadesátých letech se prosadil jako zpěvák, skladatel a textař kultovní jesenické kapely Priessnitz, která přišla s estetikou temných hor v pohraničí. Neprostupné mlhy plné fantaskních stvoření později ustoupily civilnějšímu pojetí, přesto skladby neztratily nic ze své působivosti. Švejdíkův záběr však hudbou zdaleka nekončí, v posledních dvou desetiletích se stal vyhledávaným ilustrátorem a kreslířem komiksů v čele s nebelovskou trilogií. Právě tyto dva světy spojuje kniha Mimosezóna, kde výběr nejlepších textů skupin Priessnitz, Umakart, Jaromír 99 & The Bombers, Letní kapela a písně pro Václava Neckáře doplňují charakteristické ilustrace inspirované krajinou a náladou rodného Jesenicka. Součástí sbírky je také zasvěcená předmluva Jaroslava Rudiše a velký profilový rozhovor Michala Pařízka, šéfredaktora hudebního časopisu Full Moon.

Marilyn Monroe & Arthur Miller


Novinářka, publicistka a filmová kritička Ch. Maerkerová se ve své knížce soustředila na „největší americkou hlavu“ a „nejkrásnější americké tělo“. Takto byli v tisku občas hodnoceni jeden z nejvýznamnějších amerických dramatiků 20. století Arthur Miller a filmová herečka, sexuální symbol minulého století, Marilyn Monroe. Poznali se roku 1951. On byl ženatý a otcem dvou dětí. Ona vdaná, a než se rozhodli říct si vzájemně ano, stačila se rozvést a znovu provdat. Autorka popisuje pět let jejich společného života, hektických pět let plných otázek, hledání, stresu a vášní, ale nezůstává pouze u těchto pěti let. Seznamuje čtenáře mnohem šíře a do hloubky s životy obou protagonistů, s jejich vnitřním světem, s jejich prací; a vedle nich se tu objevuje celá řada dalších osobností kulturního světa i showbyznysu. Pozorný čtenář najde ještě víc: dýchne na něj atmosféra Ameriky v poválečných a padesátých letech 20. století včetně honu na čarodějnice...

Svojskú krásu chodobných oravských dreveníc, svet miznúci do nenávratna, drsný tragikomický, zemitý kus našej vidieckej histórie zachytávajú Sýkorove čiernobiele fotografie až naturalisticky verne, s originalitou, ktorú ťažko vyjadriť slovami.

Római művészet


Szinte hazataláltak a sorozat szerkesztői, hiszen az olasz művészettörténeti sorozat újabb kötetének témája, az ókori Róma művészete. A szerző, Giandomenico De Tommaso a remek és változatos illusztrációs anyag közel hozza az impérium kifejezetten mod ern, az európai művészetet a göröggel együtt megalapozó kultúráját. Kialakulásától - melyben nagy szerepe volt az etruszk és az Itália területén élő, már erőteljesen hellenizált görögöknek - a nyugatrómai provinciák és Bizánc művészetéig hosszú utat járhatunk be a praktikusság jegyében fogant antik alkotások sorát szemlélve. Róma szobrászai, freskófestői, kézművesei az egyértelműséget és valósághűséget helyezik előtérbe: a Pompeiiben fennmaradt falfestmények, az egyiptomi Fajjúm-oázisban előkerü lt arcképek, a temérdek szobor, dombormű, történeti eseményt elbeszélő oszlop (például Traianus oszlopa) mind-mind arról tanúskodnak, hogy az ókori rómaiak számára az ember és a természet jelentette az örök szépség ihlető forrását. A sorozatban megsz okott Fókuszban cím alatt egy-egy kiemelt téma kerül kibontásra (pl. Az i. e. II\"I. század festészete; Katakombák; A provinciák terra sigillata kerámiái, stb. ), de még több műelemzés teszi változatossá a korszakokat általános jegyei szerint is tár gyaló szöveget. A nagyalakú kötet végén megtaláljuk a sorozatban megszokott szójegyzéket, időrendi táblázatot és személynévmutatót.
