The Glamour Girls of Bill Ward [used book][hard to get], Bill Ward
1 The Glamour Girls of Bill Ward [used book][hard to get]
Bill Ward USA Fintagraphics Books 2007 1560978465 / 9781560978466 Soft cover Good Book 30.2 x 22.6 x 1.2 cm 
Renowned pin-up artist Bill Ward gets the full coffee-table treatment in this lavish oversized full-color paperback featuring Ward's most polished, fully-realized portraits of the 1950s. Imagine, if you will, an innocent but stunning young woman boasting the most unlikely Barbie-like proportions-and then some-poured into a wisp of lingerie or clingy cocktail dress, silky opera-length gloves, and sheer thigh-high stockings, perched precariously but not inelegantly atop a pair of dangerously high stiletto heels, and you've got the recipe for the quintessential Wardian glamour girl. Ward's girls became staples of countless men's and humor magazines, where he shared the pages with cult models like Bettie Page and fellow 'good girl' artists such as Dan DeCarlo and Jack Cole. Ward became the standard bearer and justly famous through the '50s and '60s for his angular, high-sheen images of improbably busty glamour girls, a kind of low-rent Charles Dana Gibson. What set Ward apart-and above-his talented contemporaries was his use of a medium called the cont, crayon. When drawn on a simple newsprint stock, this potent combination created a charcoal-like effect and color that gave Ward's original art an elegant sepia-tone quality. This volume features the best of Ward's Humorama work, including a selection of Ward's infamous telephone girls. Tame by today's standards, Ward's telephone girls were considered provocative at the time, caught as they were in various states of dress or, more often, undress. The majority of the images in this volume were drawn between 1956 and 1963 when Ward was at the height of his skill, shot from original art and printed in full color. This book not only reproduces over a hundred beautifully rendered illustrations, but captures a more innocent moment in American pop culture.

Tim Burton's the Nightmare Before Christmas: The Film, the Art, the Vision [used book][hard to get], Frank Thompson
2 Tim Burton's the Nightmare Before Christmas: The Film, the Art, the Vision [used book][hard to get]
Frank Thompson USA Roundtable Press 2009 142312541X / 9781423125419 Soft cover Good Book 28.6 x 22.2 x 1.9 cm 
The "Making Of" book for Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas is getting a new cover treatment - with a bright shiny Halloween glow and eye-catching title treatment. On screen, Jack Skellington leaps with joy, singing with wonder at his discovery of Christmas Town. He seems so real, so alive, that we believe both and his fantastical world must somehow exist. But in reality it is not Jack who is the star of the show; it is the over 140 artists and technicians who spent more than two years bringing Jack and all his cohorts to life on the screen. Every gesture Jack makes was created by a human hand, by an animator who moved the puppet in tiny increments from frame to frame. Every character, every set, every prop--even the candy canes--had to be designed and then actually fabricated by someone. This book tells the true story of the film, highlighting the art and the vision that make the movie so memorable. Also included are the complete lyrics to the film.

The Landscape Paintings of Richard McKinley: Selected Works in Oil and Pastel, Richard McKinley
3 The Landscape Paintings of Richard McKinley: Selected Works in Oil and Pastel
Richard McKinley USA North Light Books 2015 1440339694 / 9781440339691 Hardcover New Book 29.8 x 26.7 x 2.3 cm 
The Landscape Paintings of Richard McKinley invites you to experience the artist's life work and lessons learned. In this impressive yet intimate collection of 100 breathtaking pastel and oil landscape paintings, McKinley takes you along as he tackles his favorite subjects--the the vistas of the Pacific Northwest, the California coastline, fall in Taos, New Mexico, and many others--while sharing the anecdotes, techniques and feelings behind each work. This volume is, in essence, three books in one: * A salute to the beauty of our earth. Scenes (many completed en plein air) range from McKinley's home state of Oregon, to the arid deserts of Arizona, to Minnesota's lakes and France's Provence region. * The personal journey of one artist. His walks through the woods. His race with light. The people and places that have inspired him along the way. * The landscape-painting workshop of a lifetime. It's packed with expert insights on everything from working on location and the importance of preparatory sketches, to using underpainting, capturing light effects, and knowing when to stop. A compelling read for artists and art-lovers alike, every page resonates with McKinley's love of his craft, lifetime of know-how and knack for helping other artists discover their own original views of the world.

Gauguin His Life and Works in 500 Images: An illustrated exploration of the artist, his life and context, with a gallery of 300 of his finest paintings, Susie Hodge
4 Gauguin His Life and Works in 500 Images: An illustrated exploration of the artist, his life and context, with a gallery of 300 of his finest paintings
Susie Hodge UK Lorenz Books 2015 0754829146 / 9780754829140 Hardcover New Book 
This is an expert account of the Post Impressionist artist, Paul Gauguin, who defied convention and renounced European civilization to pursue his art in the South Seas. It explores the influences that defined his style, from Impressionist painters to the brilliant hues and primitive forms of the South Pacific Islands. It features a gallery ranging from his early Impressionist work to his vibrant pictures of a Tahitian idyll. Paul Gauguin was one of the most important artists of the early 20th century. This informative book outlines the artist's personal and working life, his work in France and his paintings of the tropical landscapes of Tahiti and the Caribbean. His mission became to depict an authentic primitivism; a method known as Cloissonism, a technique that was inspired by medieval enamelling: The Yellow Christ is a good example of this style. Another iconic work is Vision after the Sermon (Jacob Wrestling with the Angel). This beautifully illustrated book is essential reading for those who would like to learn about this artist, and to view his works in one comprehensive collection.
