The Purple Book: Symbolism & Sensuality in Contemporary Art and Illustration
Best price for this book: $ 41.81
The title of the book is inspired by The Yellow Book, the periodical published in the 1890s and initially art directed by Aubrey Beardsley. While the color yellow represented the daringly salacious in the 1890s, today the color purple is synonymous with opulence and sensuality.
Hand to Eye: Contemporary Illustration
Best price for this book: $ 39.29
A sequel to the highly successful Pen & Mouse, Hand to Eye features forty-five illustrators from around the world. Including both commissioned artwork and experimental projects, the work collected here shows that cutting-edge computer illustration is still thriving and continues to push boundaries. In the last two years, however, there has been a noticeable move towards a handcrafted style, perhaps a logical reaction to the torrent of digital imagery. More and more image-makers are turning to traditional tools and techniques, and their methods vary widely: some work solely with pen, pencil and paint; others create images using tapestry and embroidery, and many incorporate digital elements into handmade art.
Hand to Eye reflects these diverse approaches to image-making, from the cleanness of slick, vector-based work, through photorealism, to a lo-fi, handcrafted aesthetic; from exquisitely detailed, brightly coloured collages to simple, single-colour sketches.
