Handbook of Tibetan Iconometry: A Guide to the Arts of the 17th Century By Christoph C. Ppers
2012 | 386 Pages | ISBN: 9004180141 | PDF | 336 MB


The Handbook of Iconometry (Tibetan title: Cha tshad kyi dpe ris Dpyod ldan yid gsos) constitutes a lavishly illustrated treatise laying down the iconometic principles and measurements at the heart of the 17th-century art of Tibet. The book was produced in ca. 1687 at the instigation of the famous scholar and statesman sde srid Sangs rgyas rgya mtsho (1653–1705). Today, the original is kept in the Tibet Autonomous Region Archives (Lhasa). The Handbook includes more than 150 meticulously prepared drawings of buddhas, bodhisattvas and divinities, 70 script types and 14 stupa models all extrapolated from the rich heritage of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist art. These are accompanied by an introduction charting the production of the Handbook in the 17th century and the scholarly profile of its principal author Sangs rgyas rgya mtsho. In the appendix, it reproduces passages from the Vaiurya g.Ya' sel that provide valuable additional information about the illustrations.

Art Deco House Styles
Art Deco House Styles (Living History) by Trevor Yorke
2013 | ISBN: 1846742471 | English | 80 pages | EPUB | 15 MB


The Art Deco period of the 1920s swept away the dark sobriety of Victorian living, replacing it with houses that were light, colourful and exciting. Drawing inspiration from ancient Egyptian forms and modern architecture, Art Deco is arguably the most distinctive style of the 20th century and is characterised by streamlined white houses and geometric patterned interiors. The innovative and glamorous designs of the period are still highly sought after by house buyers and homeowners today and this is the perfect book for those who want to learn more about the artistic influences of these years. Using both his own illustrations and colour photographs, Trevor Yorke shows the distinctive features and details of genuine Art Deco homes with chapters on the furnishings and fittings which characterized Art Deco house interiors, including examples of furniture, wallpapers, fabrics, and distinctive details like door handles, hinges and light fittings.

Arts and Crafts House Styles
Arts and Crafts House Styles by Trevor Yorke
2013 | ISBN: 1846742307 | English | 80 pages | EPUB | 7 MB


The Arts and Crafts movement began as an instinctive reaction against the new industrial age. Seeking a return to simple craftsmanship, with traditional materials, its influence spread both to Europe and North America where the term craftsman denoted a traditional style of architecture and interior design prevalent before the 1920s. In England, the Arts and Crafts influence upon house building was far-reaching between 1870 and 1914. This was not least because its cosmetic (rather than ethical) details were copied by commercial builders. The result was some superb buildings by key architects like Norman Shaw and Voysey, but also a wide range of others ranging from simple terraces to the finest detached houses of the period. Trevor Yorke has written a practical introduction to the Arts and Crafts house. He describes its structure and its style, with buildings designed to fit in with their setting rather than dominate it, and with emphasis upon use of local materials. Using both his own illustrations and colour photographs he shows the distinctive features and details of genuine Arts and Crafts homes. These range from wide arched porches, elongated mullioned windows, and sloping buttresses, to terracotta plaques, decorative ironwork and patterned bargeboards. There are also chapters on the use of interior spaces, and on the furnishings and fittings which characterised Arts and Crafts house interiors, including examples of furniture, wallpapers, fabrics, and distinctive details like door handles, hinges and light fittings. This is a perfect book for those who want to learn more about the simplicity and elegance of the Arts and Crafts style.

Paper Cut: An Exploration Into the Contemporary World of Papercraft Art and Illustration by Owen Gildersleeve
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1592539025 | 192 pages | PDF | 101 MB



The book explores the contemporary world of paper art and illustration, delving into the working lives of twenty-five of the world’s leading papercraft artists. Through in-depth interviews and rarely published behind-the-scenes imagery, Paper Cut gives a unique perspective into this burgeoning field of illustration. For this book I was lucky enough to have control over all the aspects, including the artist selection, interviews and cover artwork. The design was created in collaboration with Chris Clarke, and the text was proof-read and edited by Nick Redgrove. I also created a bespoke hand-cut typeface which was used for all of the artist’s titles.

Art Models 7: Dynamic Figures for the Visual Arts (Art Models series)
Art Models 7: Dynamic Figures for the Visual Arts (Art Models series)
Maureen Johnson, Douglas Johnson | 2012 | EPUB, PDF | ISBN: 1936801183 | 216 pages | 17 Mb, 29 Mb


Artists in search of figures in intense action—flying through the air, punching, kicking, and crouching—will find more than 100 poses of male and female models in 28 categories of dynamic movement in the latest addition to the Art Models series. Informed by diverse sources such as baroque art, with its moody lighting and twisting figures, and comic books, with heroic figures in strong stances and suspicious crouches, this visual reference will inspire any artist—comic book artists, animators, video game designers, and illustrators—interested in depicting drama. A section of time-stopping photos of actions including jumping, falling, or swinging a sword offers artists a series of expertly photographed views that would be very challenging to achieve with a studio model. Art Models 7 also presents a number of the series’ trademark stationary poses photographed in 24-point rotation and shot in the round.

Art Models 5: Life Nude Photos for the Visual Arts (Art Models series)
Art Models 5: Life Nude Photos for the Visual Arts (Art Models series)
Maureen Johnson, Douglas Johnson | 2010 | EPUB, PDF | ISBN: 0981624960 | 232 pages | 8 Mb, 37 Mb


Whether for work on a finished piece, trying a new technique, or getting in some practice time, this figure study enables artists to work when and where they want with their choice of model, pose, and view. The latest in the series features 12 new male and female art models—as well as Becca from the previous book—in a collection of poses selected by readers and visitors to the authors' website. The contrast has also been increased in many of the photos to provide deeper, more challenging shadows. While the guide includes individuals and couples with a wide range of body types in natural, relaxed stances as well as some inspired by classical works of art, the primary focus is on dynamic poses—twisting, scrunching, reaching, and even fighting. Poses are precisely lit, revealing every area of the model, and have been carefully chosen to illustrate important effects such as foreshortening and perspective changes. A judicious amount of photo retouching is done, not to make the models more glamorous or plastic, but to remove distractions that detract from the essence of the models.
