An essay on typography by Eric Gill( Book )

86 editions published between 1931 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Essay on Typography was first published in 1931, instantly recognized as a classic, and has long been unavailable. It represents Gill at his best opinionated, fustian, and consistently humane. It is his only major work on typography and remains indispensable for anyone interested in the art of letter forms and the presentation of graphic information. This manifesto, however, is not only about letters their form, fit, and function but also about man's role in an industrial society. As Gill wrote later, it was his chief object "to describe two worlds that of industrialism and that of the human workman & to define their limits." His thinking about type is still provocative. Here are the seeds of modern advertising unjustified lines, tight word and letter spacing, ample leading. Here, too, is vintage Gill, as polemical as he is practical, as much concerned about the soul of man as the work of man; as much obsessed by the ends as by the means

Wild thing : Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska, Gill by Richard Cork( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epstein, Gill and Gaudier-Brzeska were pioneers of modern Bristish sculpture. In a burst of daring creativity before World War I, they revolutionized their field. The three artists produced sculpture whose sexual explicitness and boldness of form shocked contemporary viewers. Examples of their works illustrate this text, including Epstein's robotic masterpiece, 'Rock Drill', Gill's 'Ecstasy' and Gudier-Brzaeska's 'Birds Erect'.--Publisher
Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

6 editions published between 1927 and 2011 in English and English, Middle and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three Oxford Guides to Chaucer are written by scholars of international repute, with the purpose of summarizing what is known about his works and offering interpretations based on recent advances in both historical knowledge and theoretical understanding. Barry Windeatt's volume on Troilus and Criseyde examines the poem that is Chaucer's most ambitious single achievement, his masterpiece, and one of the very finest narrative poems in the English language. The story of love fulfilled and trust betrayed - of how Troilus and Criseyde discover love, and how she abandons him for Diomede after her departure from Troy - is presented by Chaucer with profound insight into human character and explored through its philosophical and spiritual dimensions. This Oxford Guide is the most comprehensive introduction to Troilus and Criseyde yet produced. It includes the fullest and most convenient account of Chaucer's imaginative use of his sources, the first extended analysis of the poem's originality of genre, and a readable commentary on all aspects of the work, its structure, themes, characterization, and style. It also contains a survey of literary responses to Troilus in the three centuries following Chaucer's death. The Guide combines the informative substance of a reference book with the coherence of a critical reading, and is set to establish itself as a standard work on Troilus and Criseyde

The tragedy of Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare( Book )

2 editions published between 1934 and 1949 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Titus Andronicus is still regarded by many as a bad play of dubious authorship. Its adversaries have abhorred the violence of the action and the apparent lapses in the quality of the verse. Since 1945, however, the play has been taken increasingly seriously in both the theatre and the study: the violence and cruelty it depicts were disconcertingly matched by the events of two World Wars. Alan Hughes joins those critics who take the play seriously, arguing for its unity of theme and its grim humour, and demonstrates that it is the work of a brilliant stage craftsman, confident in his mastery of space, movement and verse." "The text is based on the first quarto, supplemented by crucial additions and stage directions from the Folio. The critical account of the play's fortunes is integrated within a description of major modern productions, including those directed by Peter Brook, Brian Bedford and Deborah Warner. In addition there is a complete stage history which includes the eighteenth-century adaptation by Edward Ravenscroft and a reconstruction of the version performed by the nineteenth-century black American actor Ira Aldridge. For this updated edition, a new section is included on recent stage, film and critical interpretations by Sue Hall-Smith. There are also sections on text, authorship and the relevance of the famous Longleat drawing of the play. Appendices explore how the play might have been performed at the Rose playhouse in London, and how it could be adapted for a touring company of fourteen men and boys. An updated reading list completes the edition."--Jacket

7 editions published between 1963 and 1977 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1952 Mrs. Mary Gill, widow of Eric Gill, generously gave to the Victoria and Albert Museum her husband's file copies of his engravings; this valuable gift comprised virtually the whole of his work as an engraver on wood and metal. The present Picture Book contains a representative selection of his varied achievement in this field, depicting both religious and secular subjects, and ranging in date from 1908 until the artist's death in 1940. It is published in conjunction with a Catalogue of the engravings compiled by Mr. John Physick, Keeper, Department of Museum Services"--Page v
