              Dorothy and Otis: Designing the American Dream
                

              Dorothy and Otis: Designing the American Dream (EPUB ebook)

              By Hathaway, Norman; Nadel, Dan

              A lavish, gorgeously designed full-color collection that showcases the designs of Dorothy and Otis Shepard, two groundbreaking giants of early twentieth-century American advertising.Dorothy and Otis Shepard are the unsung heroes of early twentieth-century North American visual cu...lture. Together, they were the first American graphic designers to work in multiple mediums and scales with equal skill and vision, and their work remains brilliant; yet their names are little known today.Dorothy and Otis chronicles their story in detail for the first time. It explores the Shepards' penchant for abstraction and modernism, and shows how the advent of billboard advertising inspired their creativity-large campaigns that matched the grandeur of their lifestyle. Throughout, it demonstrates how their influence touched all aspects of consumer culture-from collaborating on the packaging for Wrigley's Gum and designing uniforms and logos for the Chicago Cubs to planning and promoting the resort island Catalina, where Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Clark Gable, and other celebrities frequented.Dorothy and Otis illuminates their personal lives as well, from their origins and early years to the eventual dissolution of their marriage. As it brings to life these pioneering artists and their momentous partnership, it elevates them to their rightful place in popular culture and makes clear how their legendary work reflected and exemplified the American Dream.

              Return to Romance: The Strange Love Stories of Ogden Whitney

              Return to Romance: The Strange Love Stories of Ogden Whitney (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Main)

              By turns amusing and disturbing, this collection of 1960s romance comic strips provides a provocative window into male-female power dynamics as conceived by one of mid-century America's foremost comic book artists. Ogden Whitney was one of the unsung masters of American comics, a... fluent draughtsman and inventive storyteller who tried his hand at everything from Westerns to superheroes to science fiction. He is perhaps best-remembered for creating the satirical superhero Herbie Popnecker, also known as the Fat Fury, but his romance comics of the late 1950s and 1960s may be even more unique. In Whitney's hands, the standard formula of meet-cute, minor complications, and final blissful kiss becomes something very different: an unsettling vision of midcentury American romance as a devastating power struggle, a form of intimate psychological warfare dressed up in pearls and flannel suits. From suburban lawns and offices to rocket labs and factories, his men and women scheme and clash, dominate and escape, drawn in a style of scrupulous blandness that only serves to emphasize the strangeness of the material. It is darkly hilarious, truly terrifying -- and yes, occasionally even a bit romantic.

              Chris Martin

              Drawing on inspiration from Buddhism to Amy Winehouse, Chris Martin -lets the paintings make themselves- and creates bold abstract works that explore the unknowable psychological tendencies of art. His canvases are characterized by flat-yet-textured planes of saturated color, and... will often incorporate found materials and highly personal paper ephemera. Works such as Untitled (2013) demonstrate the influence of Pablo Picasso's collages, and his canvases' strong geometries also elaborate a self-proclaimed attachment to Piet Mondrian. Martin's practice came of age in 1980s New York, which saw the explosion of the East Village art scene, led by Keith Haring. This is the first internationally important monograph on the artist which collects essays by Glenn O'Brien, Nancy Princenthal, Trinie Dalton and Dan Nadel.

              Takeshi Murata (born 1975) first became known as an early innovator of datamoshing, a form of glitch art that requires compressing two videos together until their respective pixels merge into one mashed-up picture. Since then, inspired by Giorgio de Chirico and traditional 17th-c...entury Dutch and Flemish painting, Murata's work has ventured into the realm of hyper-realism in a series of uncanny prints and videos that explore our inner and exterior lives via everything from B-grade horror film imagery to relics of a 1980s childhood. Part monograph and part artist's book, Takeshi Murata includes an essay by New Museum curator Lauren Cornell, an interview with the artist conducted by Alex Gartenfeld, Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, and an essay by Dan Nadel.

              My Vibe is New York-based poet and writer Jeremy Sigler's collection of diaristic tales by an only partly sympathetic struggling poet who flirts with--and often fails at--creating romance and playful distractions in his otherwise boring life. The tales are self-deprecating, awkwa...rd, nostalgic and at times perverse, but they retain warmth, honesty, whimsy, charm and are often wickedly funny. I love pseudoscience. I love it. Next time I read my work in public, I'm gonna cut out big cardboard letters and paint them red. I'm gonna prop them up behind me: T-E-D. Pseudoscientists get all the fans. They get all the love letters. For their viral youtubes of levitating beer cans. The Pseudos get all the attention. They go viral. Unlike poets. Jeremy's voice is one you can't deny; it's crisp, clever and sometimes creepy. It's like finding someone's old journals, their identity revealed bit by bit, confession by confession. - Abbi Jacobson, Broad City
