How Hull Coloured the World - The inside story of Sissons' Paints and Hall's Distemper (Paperback): Anthony C. Sissons How Hull Coloured the World - The inside story of Sissons' Paints and Hall's Distemper (Paperback)
Anthony C. Sissons; Edited by Christiana Sissons Moore
R972 Discovery Miles 9 720 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Sissons' Paints was part of Hull. For over 150 years, the Sissons family, through six generations, treated their ever-expanding company workforce as an extension of that family. Loyalty and long service was a habit established in the nineteenth century which continued to the last days in the boardroom and on the factory floor. The story brings together trade developments, company history, scientific discovery, times of relaxation, family celebrations and tragedies. The success of the Sissons lay in the strength of their marketing of superior products, notably Hall'sDistemper (the Men and plank logo), in Britain and across the world, with presences in Argentina, Canada, India, the United States and Australia before the First World War. The ultimate demise of the company was brought about by changes in their customer base, which went unnoticed for too long. Hundreds of illustrations - of staff at work and at play, of the workplace, of the family, of advertisements and marketing, of company documents, of the consequences of war - complement the text. Brought together by Anthony Sissons, with material from the archive of his father, Richard Chamberlin Sissons, and edited by his daughter, Christiana Sissons Moore, this is a family history with a difference - the family is Hull.

Tord Boontje: Enchanted World is a comprehensive visual document of the designer s most recent work. As an artist and a craftsman, Boontje incorporates an artisanal sensibility into contemporary industrial design, drawing upon a rich graphic tradition to create objects of exceptional beauty and delicacy. Featured here are some of his latest works, many undertaken after Boontje stepped down as Head of Design Products at the Royal College of Art in 2013 (a position he assumed after Ron Arad in 2009). Now, solely focused on his own design studio in London, Boontje showcases many of his designs, including the wispy Icarus Lamp, an armoire constructed entirely of pressed-metal fig leaves for Meta, a portable Bluetooth speaker for Yamaha hidden under a curtain of horsehair, and many other romantic explorations that have made Boontje s output stand out in the world of design. Combining developing technologies and traditional approaches, his pieces are prized for their originality, delicacy, and intricate detail. This book is a must for design lovers, providing readers with a window into how Boontje crafts his unique objects, from studio prototype to retail. Indeed, the book is conceived as a work of total design, using special printing effects and beautiful marginalia on almost every page in the form of Boontje s sensitive and romantic detailed hand-drawn illustrations that have served as the inspiration for many of the objects featured here.

Graphicacy and Culture - Refocusing on Visual Learning (Hardcover): Xenia Danos Graphicacy and Culture - Refocusing on Visual Learning (Hardcover)
Xenia Danos
R1,479 Discovery Miles 14 790 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Xenia Danos' book contributes to the creation of a platform for education in the area of graphicacy and refocusing on visual learning. The foundation for the book is Xenia's literature review concerning the development of graphicacy in humans. Despite exploring over 2000 references, the prior research was limited in scope, but raised many potentially interesting points of departure. Ken Baynes puts this literature review in context with an opening essay on the significance of the visual in Western culture. He explores the role of graphicacy in cultural change, its role in establishing continuities, and particularly its significance for shaping the future through modelling and design. After discussing graphicacy in education, its development and progression, and relationship to students' learning, Xenia presents a new taxonomy that she designed primarily to facilitate the analysis of graphicacy across educational curricula, although it has wider application. Graphicacy is vital to an extraordinary range of human activities ranging from design to archaeology. It is a key medium for communicating ideas, information and proposals in everyday life. A feature of Xenia's book is a number of case studies demonstrating current graphic practice in professions as diverse as dentistry, psychotherapy and engineering. Taken together they serve to substantiate her argument for the use of graphic media as a means of learning and expression in education. The book's purpose is to get graphicacy on the educational agenda and it makes a powerful case. The book also provides a framework for more specialist forthcoming LDP titles that take the connection between graphicacy and design into related areas of practice and education.

Design - Models of Change (Paperback): Ken Baynes Design - Models of Change (Paperback)
Ken Baynes
R481 Discovery Miles 4 810 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

How do designers do what they do? How do architects, engineers, industrial, fashion and graphic designers think? What is it that goes on in their minds that enables them to shape the things that people buy, use and inhabit? And how far do they share their mental abilities with people at large? Is it true that everyone is a designer in their own way? In Design: Models of Change, Ken Baynes draws on a lifetime's research and experience to suggest answers to these questions. He uses the latest findings from neuroscience and evolutionary biology but also traces the story of designerly thinking back to the early days of homo sapiens sapiens and such momentous changes as the invention of cooking, the Enlightenment and the industrial revolution. Essentially the ability to design depends on the capacity of the human mind to make coherent causal models of our experience and the world. Using these cognitive models we remember the past, interact with the present and imagine the possibility of alternative futures. Design focuses on the future of material culture and so sets out to provide a favourable environment for the evolution of human society. So far so positive. However, Ken also identifies a malignant role played by design in the environmental, social and economic crises now facing the world. How can the energy and creativity of designerly thinking be directed to these key issues? A central aim of the book is to launch a debate on this topic which is crucial to the survival of homo sapiens sapiens.

The first book of its kind - a car book like no other - offering a deeply nostalgic look at beautiful vintage cars through the superb literature, leaflets and pamphlets that sold them to us. Auto Erotica covers the gamut of motoring in Britain during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. These rare ephemeral booklets are full of unusual graphic ideas and concepts. Their fabulous photography, dazzling colour charts, daring typography, strange fold outs and inspiring styles symbolise the automobile aspirations of generations of Britons. The book is also packed full of era-defining classic cars, from those we love to those you can't remember. Expect fast Fords, the XJS, the TR8, MGs, minis, Maxis, Renaults, Beemers, VWs, Vivas, Citroens, DeLoreans and a whole lot more - amazing motors from the past and even some from the future - as you've never seen them before.

In their February 2021 issue, Vogue launched The United States of Fashion, a project that shines a spotlight on the creativity and craft flourishing throughout the country. Exploring the innovation and entrepreneurialism that defines American fashion, Vogue goes coast to coast from Detroit to El Paso to Indianapolis to Nashville, where the most exciting new designers are creating and designing locally. This book features a wide array of fashion voices across the nation, who share self-generated images and narratives on how they define and identify with fashion now. New, never-before-seen photographs and anecdotes, not published in the pages of Vogue, come from fashion designers Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte, Jeremy Scott, and Libertine; photographers Alex Webb and June Canedo; and craftspeople Ariana Boussard-Reifel and Ataumbi Metals. The book contains texts by esteemed writers, from Louise Erdrich s words on Native American fashion and music editor Suzy Exposito s account of being goth in Miami, to new ways of creating sustainable, recycled fashion. These accounts create a living biography of the evolution and democratisation of fashion today. A rich tapestry of style in America, The United States of Fashion will appeal to readers interested in fashion, design, culture, and photography.
