Bright and bold and found everywhere in fin-de-sia cle Paris, the poster was a brilliant fusion of art and commerce. New printing methods made it possible to distribute and post vivid full-color prints, spurring both artists and advertisers to take advantage of these public canvases. During its golden age in Paris, the poster was acclaimed for enlivening city streets, even as it was decried for its raucous colors, overt commodification, sexualized female figures, and oversized imagery. Collectors raced to snap up these ephemeral art pieces, sparking a frenzied demand dubbed affichomania, complete with its own experts and specialized publications containing small-scale prints for the home.L'Affichomania: The Passion for French Posters is a lavishly illustrated collection of these posters focusing on the work of five masters: Jules Cheret, the acknowledged founder of the field, Eugane Grasset, Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen, Alphonse Mucha, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. All are drawn from the collection of Richard H. Driehaus. With rising auction prices and the popularity of modern reprints, it is clear that affichomania is here to stay.

A lively book that traverses forty years of drawing and satire by a celebrated cartoonist and postwar artist Romanian-born American artist Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) won international acclaim for his inventive, wry representations of the postwar age. His work appeared on the covers and interiors of the New Yorker for nearly six decades, and his drawings, collages, prints, paintings, and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. With essays by cartoonist Chris Ware and curator Mark Pascale, this lively book traces Steinberg's imagery as it evolved over the full scope of his career, celebrating his refusal to distinguish between high and low art. The 60 works included traverse the realms of Steinberg's world, from the witty black-ink takes on his newly adopted land of 1940s America to the watercolor paintings he made as a mature artist in the late 1980s.

The internationally acclaimed films Persepolis and Waltz with Bashir only hinted at the vibrant animation culture that exists within the Middle East and North Africa. In spite of censorship, oppression and war, animation studios have thrived in recent years - in Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Turkey - giving rise to a whole new generation of entrepreneurs and artists. The success of animation in the Middle East is in part a product of a changing cultural climate, which is increasingly calling for art that reflects politics. Equally, the professionalization and popularization of film festivals and the emergence of animation studios and private initiatives are the results of a growing consumer culture, in which family-friendly entertainment is big business. Animation in the Middle East uncovers the history and politics that have defined the practice and study of animation in the Middle East, and explores the innovative visions of contemporary animators in the region.

Animation - Process, Cognition and Actuality presents a uniquely philosophical and multi-disciplinary approach to the scholarly study of animation, by using the principles of process philosophy and Deleuzian film aesthetics to discuss animation practices, from early optical devices to contemporary urban design and installations. Some of the original theories presented are a process-philosophy based theory of animation; a cognitive theory of animation; a new theoretical approach to the animated documentary; an original investigative approach to animation; and unique considerations as to the convergence of animation and actuality. Numerous animated examples (from all eras and representing a wide range of techniques and approaches - including television shows and video games) are examined, such as Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), Madame Tutli-Putli (2007), Gertie the Dinosaur (1914), The Peanuts Movie (2015), Grand Theft Auto V (2013) and Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist (1995-2000). Divided into three sections, each to build logically upon each other, Dan Torre first considers animation in terms of process and process philosophy, which allows the reader to contemplate animation in a number of unique ways. Torre then examines animation in more conceptual terms in comparing it to the processes of human cognition. This is followed by an exploration of some of the ways in which we might interpret or `read' particular aspects of animation, such as animated performance, stop-motion, anthropomorphism, video games, and various hybrid forms of animation. He finishes by guiding the discussion of animation back to the more tangible and concrete as it considers animation within the context of the actual world. With a genuinely distinctive approach to the study of animation, Torre offers fresh philosophical and practical insights that prompt an engagement with the definitions and dynamics of the form, and its current literature.

The Animator's Sketchbook will teach students of animation how to improve their work through observation and drawing. It will show readers how to access their inner "animator." With over 60 different gesture and drawing exercises, this book enhances vision, analysis, understanding, and the core skills required to become a master animator. Filled with extensive practice pages, Tony White's Sketchbook, invites students to demonstrate what they learn. Each exercise is timed, so that the skills acquired, are optimized for efficiency and comprehension. The style and technique of the art produced will be entirely up to the reader, thus making no two sketchbooks alike.

The history of animated cartoons has been dominated by Walt Disney, giving the impression that he perfected the medium. In reality, it was the work of several pioneers. Max Fleischer-inventor of the rotoscope technique of tracing animation frame by frame over live-action footage-was one of the most prominent. By the 1930s, Fleischer and Disney were the leading producers of animated films but took opposite approaches. Fleischer's work showed elements of German Expressionism and organic progression, in contrast to Disney's naturalism. As a result, Fleischer's cartoons were rough rather than refined, commercial rather than artistic-yet with an artistry of their own. Both animators sought to create images and action that violated physical laws, supporting Fleischer's maxim: "If it can be done in real life, it isn't animation." This book covers his life and work, with rare illustrations detailing the technical aspects of his craft.

""Je me souviens de mon premier contact avec les couleurs. On m'avait donné une vieille boîte d'aquarelles qui appartenait à mes soeurs. Les deux seules couleurs qui restaient étaient du mauve et de l'ocre. Les mélanger donnait un résultat abominable. C'est avec ces couleurs que j'ai barbouillé un album Gédéon de Rabier." À lire ces souvenirs de Tomi Ungerer interrogé sur ses dessins d'enfance, on perçoit immédiatement le plaisir physique et la joie de la découverte qu'ont constitué ses premières expériences d'illustrateur. En quoi les dessins de l'enfance portent-ils déjà le germe de l'oeuvre à venir ? Que racontent-ils de l'apprentissage de ce garçon aux dispositions hors du commun dans le contexte singulier de l'occupation allemande ? Le musée Tomi Ungerer Centre international de l'Illustration conserve dans ses collections près de 600 dessins réalisés par l'artiste entre 1935 et 1953 et soigneusement collectés au fil des ans par sa mère. Ce fonds d'une richesse exceptionnelle, presqu'entièrement inédit, apporte de précieux éclairages sur l'oeuvre de l'artiste accompli: on reconnaîtra le goût précoce de la caricature et de la satire, le talent pour le dessin d'après nature, le sens du rythme et de la composition, le plaisir de la narration, mais aussi les diverses influences littéraires et graphiques qui irriguent son oeuvre... Une véritable découverte pour tous les amateurs de l'artiste qui ouvre de nouvelles voies dans la compréhension du processus créatif."--Page 4 of cover.

Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood are some of the world's most beloved characters in children's literature. But before they appeared in many millions of books and in nearly fifty languages, they started life in the 1920s as the product of a unique collaboration between A. A. Milne and E. H Shepard; author and illustrator wove images and text together in a way that was utterly original for the time. For Shepard, it was a process that he relished, creating artwork for new editions right up until his death in 1976 at the age of ninety-six.In this beautifully presented, full-colour volume, readers will not only discover the story behind this remarkable partnership, but also follow the evolution of Shepard's work, from those first tentative sketches through to the illustrations we know and love, and even on to the characters' later incarnations at Disney.Presenting over 150 full colour images - including never-before-published sketches, finished artwork, personal family photographs and memorabilia - this is the perfect gift for those of us who grew up loving the books.
