Millie Marotta has always loved the natural world. But in her lifetime much has changed for the animal kingdom. Today we are losing species more quickly than we are discovering new ones. And while we know the plight of the mighty elephant or the charismatic chimpanzee, what of other vanishing species whose stories are not so often told? Mysterious baby dragons of the underworld, the dodo's long-lost cousin, gargantuan lobsters and incredible shrinking reindeer - they too need our help and our attention. With each animal exquisitely illustrated in full colour by Millie, alongside the story of their uniqueness, this is a wonderful and surprising gift, offering the chance to fall more in love with the natural world, and think about how to help save it.

Part of a series of exciting and luxurious Flame Tree Notebooks. Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed, then foil stamped. And they're powerfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps, two bookmarks and a solid magnetic side flap. These are perfect for personal use and make a dazzling gift. This example features Warwick Goble's Pretty Pair of Wings. This is one of Goble's illustrations for the 1909 edition of Charles Kingsley's masterpiece The Water Babies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby. It shows the fairies fitting a new pair of wings to a young girl. Kingley's story demonstrates the way that children's literature altered fairy traditions. The orphan Tom can only find happiness once he has died and been transformed into a water baby - a reversal of older folk tales where fairies were feared for stealing children away from their families.

In his Illuminated Books, William Blake combined text and imagery on a single page in a way that had not been done since the Middle Ages. For Blake, religion and politics, intellect and emotion, mind and body were both unified and in conflict with each other: his work is expressive of his personal mythology, and his methods of conveying it were integral to its meaning. There is no comparison with reading books such as Jerusalem, America, and Songs of Innocence and of Experience in Blake's own medium, infused with his sublime and exhilarating colors. Tiny figures and forms dance among the lines of the text, flames appear to burn up the page, and dense passages of Biblical-sounding text are brought to a jarring halt by startling images of death, destruction, and liberation. Blake's hope that his books would obtain wide circulation was unfulfilled: some exist only in unique copies and none was printed in more than very small numbers. Now, for the first time, the plates from the William Blake Trust's Collected Edition have been brought together in a single volume, with transcripts of the texts and an introduction by the noted scholar David Bindman. Includes: Jerusalem; Songs of Innocence and of Experience; All Religions are One; There is No Natural Religion; The Book of Thel; The Marriage of Heaven and Hell; Visions of the Daughters of Albion; America a Prophecy; Europe a Prophecy; The Song of Los Milton a Poem; The Ghost of Abel; On Homers Poetry and] On Virgil; Laocoon; The First Book of Urizen; The Book of Ahania; The Book of Los.

The second collection of avant-garde comics from Andrew Burkholder interrogates the notion of the artist as an aesthetic chameleon. "One morning at a gig space in Baltimore I watched Andy Burkholder pick up a tube of leftover frosting and use it to casually draw a simple but legible comic strip onto a piece of cardboard. His uninhibited intelligence and direct style create the conditions for breakthrough work. ITDN is the laboratory from which his later achievements have emerged."--Bill Kartalopoulos, series editor for Best American Comics "Andy Burgholder drives well. His mother has a nice car. I initially thought it was his car and wondered how he could afford a car."--Simon Hanselmann, author of Megahex "ITDN is a safari through the wilderness of human behavior. What you're going to see is a mess. You'll need a stick to tame this book...and a lifetime to read it. Better bring your gun."-- Anna Haifisch, author of The Artist ITDN collects a series of comics released from 2011--2014 by "ITDN Group," a seemingly plural entity solely comprised of Andy Burkholder. A follow-up to Qviet, this collection documents the artist's earlier years, providing insights into his explorations of the themes and concepts that underpin many of his more broadly received works. Andrew Burkholder is a cartoonist and and visual artist. His comics are abstract yet playful, oftentimes dealing with very adult themes twisted through an extremely dry sense of humor. His 2013 comic Pretty Smart was included in the Jonathan Lethem edited Best American Comics 2015 .

Whilst watching the footage of his latest movie, Hollywood star Eddie Murphy immediately falls obsessively in love with his leading lady Lashandra. Unfortunately for the actor-slash-comedian, Lashandra is being played by Murphy himself. Realising this on-screen romance can never be, he descends into an inconsolable world of depression and drug abuse. Until one day a vision of the Nutty Professor appears before him with a way to make his ultimate erotic fantasy a reality...by extracting Lashandra's DNA from his own so he may marry her.

The power of reportage drawing is in the immediacy of the images that are created and the feeling of the illustrator's presence on location. Comparable in some ways to photojournalism, reportage illustrators are acting as visual journalists, proactively creating narrative work about issues and subjects, translating what they witness into handmade imagery. There is evidence that illustrations connect to people in powerful ways whether they are drawings created while embedded with troops in Afghanistan, documenting during a courtroom trial or recreating the energy of the crowd at a rock concert. This area of applied illustration also provides career opportunities for students and takes them out of the classroom and into different environments and situations. With practical information about tools, techniques and coping in various situations as well as inspirational interviews and advice from reportage artists working in the field, this book will fill a gap in this growing market.
For two millennia the Bible has inspired the creation of art. Within this legacy of remarkable art and beauty, illuminated biblical manuscripts offer some of the best evidence for our understanding of early Christian painting and artistic interpretations of the Bible. This beautiful and important new book, compiled and written by two internationally renowned experts, immerses the reader in the world of illuminated manuscripts of the Bible. Through its pictures we are transported across 1,000 years of history, passing chronologically through many of the major centres of the Christian world. Starting in Constantinople in the East, the journey moves on to Lindisfarne in the North, to imperial Aachen, back to Canterbury, then to Carolingian Tours in western France. Later we view some of the riches of Winchester, Mozarabic Spain, Crusader Jerusalem, the Meuse valley, northern Iraq, Paris, London, Bologna, Naples, Bulgaria, the Low Countries, Rome and Persia. Our journey ends in Gondar, the capital of imperial Ethiopia. Fortyfive remarkable books - each a treasure in its own right - provide our itinerary through time and across continents. Together they enable us to explore and revel in the extraordinary art and beauty of illuminated biblical manuscripts, some of the finest but least-known paintings from the Middle Ages.

The rich variety of languages, religious traditions and schools of art of the Indian subcontinent are brought together in this exceptional library of Indian manuscripts. Religious and philosophical texts from Buddhist, Hindu, Islamic, Jain, Sikh and Zoroastrian schools of thought are all represented in illustrated manuscripts. This library shows how these various faiths borrowed, interacted and influenced one another in the subcontinent. From palm leaf manuscripts of the South to pothi format manuals from the Himalayas in Nepal, to the sophisticated and highly illustrated manuscripts of the Imperial Moghul court, this catalogue takes the reader on a visual journey through great epics, charged romances and colourful cautionary tales. Highlights include an important and lavishly illustrated palm-leaf manuscript by `The Emperor of Poets', Upendra Bhanja (c. 1640-1740 ce), and a rare Bihar-I Danesh (The Springtime of Knowledge) by Shaikh `Inayatallah Kamboh of Delhi, from late 17th/early 18th century - the finest known copy of the manuscript. An exceptional album of 18th-century Indian paintings from the Liechtenstein Princely Collections offers insight into the fascination for Indian courtly life among the nobility of Europe. A number of exceptional painted scrolls are also presented here. Scroll painting has a long history in India. Story tellers would travel from village to village giving performances of well-known epics and regional stories often accompanied by musicians and with the visual aid of a painted scroll. One particularly vibrant scroll, over 15 metres in length, of the Madel Puranamu, was probably commissioned by a wealthy member of the dhobi caste to celebrate his community's origins and favour with Shiva. Among the many intruiging maps and manuals - on art, astrology, omens, divination and auspicious symbols - is an 18th-century Nepalese sorcer's manual, which contains instructions for protective and exorcistic Shaiva rituals, mantras and sacrificial blood-offerings. Its binding includes feathers and traces of blood and skin, which by tradition are fragments of the `five beasts' - buffalo, chicken, dog, goat and cow.
Along with Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, Kay (pronounced "kigh")
Nielsen was one of a triumvirate of great artists from the golden
age of illustration. Known for his soft yet ornate pastels and a
splendid use of various design elements, the Danish-American artist
became famous for his memorable illustrations of stories by the
Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, as well as the Nordic
fables recounted in "East o' the Sun and West o' the Moon" and the
tales collected in "In Powder and Crinoline."

`A fresh look at the beautiful game' - NME Welcome back to the inimitable work of illustrator David Squires. Most football fans can only dream of pulling on the shirt of their favourite team and running out in front of thousands of adoring fans. Pitch invaders aside, few of us get to experience that adrenalin rush. Of those who do make it as a professional footballer, even fewer realise the giddy heights of success. In the Illustrated History of Football: Hall of Fame, cartoonist David Squires returns to celebrate those who straddle the game like giants; those talented, determined souls who were juggling tennis balls in the back streets before they could talk. There's more than one way to attain football immortality though, and Squires also turns his comic eye to the mavericks, the pioneers, the forgotten legends and the anti-heroes. From Pele to Meazza, Maradona to Socrates, you will be taken on an unforgettable journey through the good, the bad and the Hagi.
