The art of the book : from medieval manuscript to graphic novel by National Art Library (Great Britain)( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Illuminated Manuscripts, comics, fine bindings, the classics of children's literature, artists' books and their working documents - these are just some of the items to be found in the National Art Library at the V & A. This volume explores the ways in which books represent art and literature, and how the marriage of word and image can create a work of art in its own right." "In a series of thematic chapters, the authors draw on their wide-ranging expertise to look at the Library's major holdings, and in the process illustrate the main aspects of book design and production over the centuries. With medieval books of hours sitting alongside contemporary paperback novels, the choice is wonderfully varied, from Leonardo da Vinci to Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, Joan of Arc to Judge Dredd, Aesop to Charles Dickens, and Babar the Elephant to Ian Fleming." "The colour plates, accompanied by a clear and informative text, demonstrate the many facets of the art of bookmaking. This compendium, spanning six centuries, will be of interest to all those with a love of art, literary history and illustration."--BOOK JACKET./ñR︡

A history of British magazine design by Anthony Quinn( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does a magazine's look and feel say about it? Sometimes more than its written content. Starting with the advent of two periodicals ; Punch in 1841 and the Illustrated London News a year later ; this groundbreaking study investigates the design history of British magazines over the past 170 years, right up to the beginnings of digital distribution. This pioneering survey of a still-developing story encompasses graphic design, typography, photography, and innovative print technology, and explores why magazines have looked how they do and how they have changed over time. The wealth of superb illustrations is drawn from the V & A's National Art Library's unparalleled archive of periodicals
