MAGIC 1400s-1950s MIKE CAVENEY, JIM STEINMEYER Book Number: 76147 Product format: Hardback This impressive heavyweight book celebrates more than 500 years of the stunning visual culture of the world's greatest magicians. Once persecuted as heretics and sorcerers, magicians have always been conduits to a parallel universe of limitless possibility - whether invoking spirits, reading minds, or inverting the laws of nature by sleight of hand. Once upon a time, the craft of magic was the most powerful fantasy world man had ever known. Featuring more than 850 spectacular colour and monochrome rarely-seen vintage posters, photographs, postcards, ghostly images, handbills, and engravings as well as paintings by Hieronymus Bosch and Caravaggio among others, The Big Book of Magic traces the history of magic as a performing art from the 1400s to the 1950s. Floating and chopped ladies, Ionia the Enchantress, Kalang and his beautiful wife/assistant, the book explores medieval street performers to the brilliant stage magicians who gave rise to cinematic special effects; from the 19th century's Golden Age of Magic to groundbreaking daredevils like Houdini, Valadon at Egyptian Hall, Lafayette at the Hippodrome and Le Roy at Oxford, Fawkes, Pinetti, Robert-Houdin, Hermann the Great, Chung Ling Soo, Okito, Downs and Thurston and the early 20th century's vaudevillians. Hardback in slipcase, 9.9" x 15", 544 pages. Text in English, French and German. Bibliophile price: £45.00

The Stan Lee Story editor John Rhett Thomas unboxes an artist's proof of the signed and numbered edition published by Taschen Books in December 2018. Limited to 1000 editions and 200 artist's proofs, The Stan Lee Story charts the remarkable life and times of a pop culture icon, from his birth in the immigrant borough of the Bronx in 1922 New York City, to his unanticipated role as the chief editor of Timely Comics, to the revolution he incited in the 1960s with the Marvel Age of Comics, and his journeys through the rise of Marvel on TV and at the cinema, where he became a beloved household name the world over as the "cameo star" of countless Marvel movies. Written by comicbook writer, historian and legend-in-his-own-right Roy Thomas, The Stan Lee Story is a work of art and an heirloom, just like Stan.

This bountiful visual history includes stunning color photographs, concept drawings, as well as ephemera from the historical collections of the Walt Disney Company and the golden age of photojournalism, to trace the park’s development and immersive world of magic and wonder, from Main Street, U.S.A. to Tomorrowland. Walt Disney dreamed for decades about opening the ultimate entertainment venue, but it wasn’t until the early 1950s that his handpicked team began to bring his vision to life. Together, artists, architects, and engineers transformed a dusty tract of orange groves about an hour south of Los Angeles into one of the world’s most beloved destinations. Today, there are Disney resorts from Paris to Shanghai, but the original Disneyland in Anaheim, California, which has been visited by more than 800 million people to-date, remains one of America’s most popular attractions. From the day it opened on July 17, 1955, Disneyland brought history and fairy tales to life, the future into the present, and exciting cultures and galaxies unknown to our imaginations. This bountiful visual history draws on Disney’s vast historical collections, private archives, and the golden age of photojournalism to provide unique access to the concept, development, launch, and enjoyment of this sun-drenched oasis of fun and fantasy. Disneyland documents Walt’s earliest inspirations and ideas; the park’s extraordinary feats of design and engineering; its grand opening; each of its immersive “lands” from Main Street, U.S.A., to Tomorrowland; and the park’s evolution through the six decades since it opened. It is a treasure trove of original Disney documentation and expertise, with award-winning writer Chris Nichols drawing on his extensive knowledge of both Disneyland and Southern California history to reveal the fascinating tale of “the happiest place on Earth.” #Disneyland #DisneyBook #TaschenBooks #Disneyworld #WaltDisneyWorld #MagicKingdom #EPCOT #MickeyMouse #Mickey90 Shop on my AMAZON STORE for all the latest recommendations on media products and deals: https://www.amazon.com/shop/daveleedownunder Check me out on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/daveleedownunder And at twitter: @davlee1991 And Instagram: @davelee1991 To buy from BOOK DEPOSITORY: http://www.bookdepository.com/?a_aid=DAVELEEDU Any purchases made via affiliate links will earn myself a very small commission, which will be used to further fund and develop my channel.

This weeks Book of the week is, "Magic" a history through the 1400's - 1950's The great thing about this book is that if you're a fan of gypsies, magic, mythology and more but with magic then this is the book for you. Why is it in the Art eye? The beauty of the poster art and bills that were created in the heyday of Magicians has been lost but not forgotten. When you read this book you look at the variations of magicians trying to be better as well as more mystifying than their predecessors but the influence it had on artists to sell the image of these said mystifiers. Translating influence of mythology and classical art into bills and banners of Mystique and wonder. grab yours today.

Guiding our eye to the minutiae of subject and symbolism, the authors allow even the most familiar of pictures to come alive anew through their intricacies and intrigues. Is the bride pregnant? Why does the man wear a beret? How does the shadow of war hang over a scene of dancing? Along the way, we travel in the art world from Ancient Egypt through to modern Europe, from the Renaissance to the Roaring Twenties.

Available now: Amazon (UK): https://amzn.to/2SMY0L8 Amazon (US): https://amzn.to/2QvJcTW Paul Duncan opens the first copy of The Star Wars Archives - just released - and gives a short guided tour of what is inside. Star Wars exploded onto our cinema screens in 1977, and the world has not been the same since. After watching depressing and cynical movies throughout the early 1970s, audiences enthusiastically embraced the positive energy of the Star Wars universe as they followed moisture farmer Luke Skywalker on his journey through a galaxy far, far away, meeting extraordinary characters like mysterious hermit Obi-Wan Kenobi, space pirates Han Solo and Chewbacca, loyal droids C-3PO and R2-D2, bold Princess Leia and the horrific Darth Vader, servant of the dark, malevolent Emperor. Writer, director, and producer George Lucas created the modern monomyth of our time, one that resonates with the child in us all. He formed Industrial Light & Magic to develop cutting-edge special effects technology, which he combined with innovative editing techniques and a heightened sense of sound to give audiences a unique sensory cinematic experience. In this first volume, made with the full cooperation of Lucasfilm, Lucas narrates his own story, taking us through the making of the original trilogy—Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi—and bringing fresh insights into the creation of a unique universe. Complete with script pages, production documents, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, stills, and posters, the XXL-sized tome is an authoritative exploration of the original saga as told by its creator. The author: Paul Duncan is a film historian whose TASCHEN books include The James Bond Archives, The Charlie Chaplin Archives, The Godfather Family Album, Taxi Driver, Film Noir, and Horror Cinema, as well as publications on film directors, film genres, movie stars, and film posters. The Star Wars Archives: 1977–1983 Hardcover, quarter-bound, 16.2 x 11.8 in., 604 pages ISBN 978-3-8365-6340-6 Edition: English German, French, and Spanish editions will be available in 2019. #StarWars #TASCHEN

VELAZQUEZ: THE COMPLETE WORKS JOSÉ LÓPEZ-REY & O. DELENDA Book Number: 76018 Product format: Hardback Light, colour and penetrating portraits from Spain's Golden Age luminary. Velázquez in Seville, Madrid and The Court, Meeting with Rubens and the First Journey to Italy, The Great Hall of the Buen Retiro Palace, Torre De La Parada, Dwarfs and Jesters, His Last Works in the Workshop are among the chapter headings of this ultimate monograph on one of the most admired European painters who ever lived. Manet called him "the greatest painter of all." Picasso was so inspired by his masterpiece Las Meninas that he painted 44 variations of it. Francis Bacon painted a study of his portrait of Pope Innocent X. Monet and Renoir, Corot and Courbet, Degas and Dalí - for so many champions of art history, the ultimate soundboard was, and remains, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez (1599-1660). This updated catalogue raisonné brings together Velázquez's complete works, jaw-droppingly reproduced in extra-large format, with a selection of enlarged details and brand new photography of recently restored paintings, achieved through the joint initiative of publishers Taschen and the Wildenstein Institute. The book's dazzling images are accompanied by insightful commentary from José López-Rey on Velázquez's interest in human life and his equal attention to all subjects, from an old woman frying eggs to a pope or king, as well as his commitment to colour and light, which would influence the Impressionists over two centuries later. The book is a critical biography and includes all his works including a number in relatively poor condition which were enlarged or cut down or folded to fit wall space. Over one third of his extant paintings have been exposed to pollution in the Prado's galleries as for example the Foul Ochre in the background of the portrait of the buffoon Pablo de Valladolid. At this huge size we marvel at the mastery of his portraiture, many with religious themes, eyes glowing and looking directly at us. The centre page fold-out is truly spectacular and features The Surrender of Breda (Las Lanzas) with the lances pointing heavenward and horse turning away. Queen Isobelle on horseback is one of the many reproduced in full page and also close up detail. His depictions of dogs, dwarfs, hunting, beautiful women in traditional dress, moustachioed men and clerics and of course children and clergymen are stunning to behold in detail. Concordance and bibliographies. Hardcover with fold-out, 11.4 x 15.6", 416 pages, satin page marker. Boxed with carry handle. New from Taschen.

A leaf through Hieronymus Bosch. The Complete Works published by TASCHEN One of the most enigmatic artists in history, Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450--1516) was something of a Renaissance radical. Turning his back on the realist preferences of contemporary painting, he created fantastical panel pictures, characterised by grotesque creatures, disturbing details, and strange visual symbolism. For some, his puzzling, often macabre, imagery was the vision of a dangerous sexual libertine. The book features brand new photography of recently restored paintings this comprehensive book includes each known Bosch work on an unprecedented scale. Copious details and a fold-out spread over one meter long allow readers to discover the many intricacies of Bosch's elaborate universe. In accompanying commentary, art historian and Bosch expert Stefan Fischer examines just what it was about Bosch and his painting that proved so immensely influential.

True Detective came first in 1924, and by 1934, when the Great Depression had produced colorful outlaws like Machine Gun Kelly, Bonnie and Clyde, Baby Face Nelson, and John Dillinger, the magazines were so popular cops and robbers alike vied to see themselves on the pages.

WILLIAM BLAKE: THE DRAWINGS FOR DANTE'S DIVINE COMEDY SEBASTIAN SCHÜTZE Book Number: 76010 Product format: Hardback A spectacularly heavyweight catalogue of the line engravings, colour drawings and illustrations for the magnum opus, Homer bearing the sword and his companions, with the ancient poets, Minos, Dante running from the three beasts plus other drawings to illustrate and introduce the connection between Blake and Dante. One of our favourites is Dante and Virgil in Hell, page 45 and the fold-out of The Circle of Gluttons, with Serberus. Celebrated around the world as a literary monument, The Divine Comedy, completed in 1321 and written by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), is widely considered the greatest work ever composed in the Italian language. The epic poem describes Dante's journey through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, representing, on a deeper level, the soul's path towards salvation. In the last few years of his life, Romantic poet and artist William Blake (1757-1827) produced 102 illustrations for Dante's masterwork, from pencil sketches to finished watercolours. Like Dante's sweeping poem, Blake's drawings range from scenes of infernal suffering to celestial light, from horrifying human disfigurement to the perfection of physical form. While faithful to the text, Blake also brought his own perspective to some of Dante's central themes. Today, Blake's illustrations, left in various stages of completion at the time of his death, are dispersed among seven different institutions. This edition brings these works together again, alongside key excerpts from Dante's masterpiece. Two introductory essays consider Dante and Blake, as well as other major artists who have been inspired by The Divine Comedy, including Sandro Botticelli, Michelangelo, Eugène Delacroix, Gustave Doré and Auguste Rodin. With a close reading of Blake's illustrations, and 14 fold-out spreads to allow the most delicate of details to dazzle, this is a breathtaking encounter with two of the finest artistic talents in history, as well as with such universal themes as love, guilt, punishment, revenge and redemption. Cloth-bound hardcover with fold-outs, 11.2 x 15.6", 324 pages, with satin bookmark. Boxed with carry handle. New from Taschen. Product is still available in limited quantities Bibliophile price: £100.00

Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the most influential photographers of all time. Controversial scenarios, bold lighting, b/w nude women were his signature. With the physically commanding 'Sumo' weighing in, boxed and shrink-wrapped, over 30kg, Helmut Newton and publisher Taschen created a landmark book that stood head and shoulders above anything previously attempted in publishing history. Stunning portraits, many in colour, bizarre scenes, iconic imaginary abound on these huge pages. Published in an edition of 10,000 signed and numbered copies, 'Sumo' sold out soon after publication and quickly multiplied its value. A decade on from its first publication, is here now in a format that will reach the widest possible audience. It comes with a unique stand for displaying the book at home - a heavyweight, clear Phillipe Starck-style folding bookstand. Heavy duty mailing box with handle and 'Making Of' booklet. Some explicit adult content, 100s of photos including Elizabeth Taylor, bejewelled and beautiful in her pool, Hugh Heffner and a bevy of beauties, mafia types, clothed and unclothed women in those iconic 1980s shots, often monochrome, and many famours names to spot frpm Hollywood. Includes colour. 10½" x 14½", 464 pages. 7.3kg.^ New Taschen Book BIBLIOPHILE PRICE: £100.00
