From the Publisher: A compendium of the life and work of Maxfield Parrish, it is an essential part of a Parrish library. For the collector, the publisher has included a value guide to some of the products that bear Parrish images. Examples of Parrish's most famous book illustrations are shown, including selections from Mother Goose in Prose and the Arabian Nights. Also included are his famous magazine covers-from Life, Collier's, Harper's Weekly, etc., as well as all the landscapes that he painted for Brown and Bigelow, who reproduced them as calendars every year from 1936 to 1963. One of the highlights of the book is the chapter on Parrish's technique, examining in depth his materials, favorite methods, and unique way of painting. In addition, there is a lengthy excerpt from an unpublished manuscript by Maxfield Parrish, Jr., explaining step-by-step his father's glazing technique and use of photography in his work. This definitive study also contains numerous revealing excerpts from Parrish's unpublished correspondence with family, friends, and clients
Designing with type : a basic course in typography by James Craig( Book )

"Designing with Type is a unique combination of student textbook and professional reference. It presents a complete overview of the field of typography, from the origins of the alphabet through contemporary design. All type fundamentals are discussed - fundamentals that are inherent in all successful typographic design." "Everything is explained clearly and precisely. Rather than overwhelming the student with an infinite number of existing typefaces, five are thoroughly examined: Garamond, Baskerville, Bodoni, Century Expanded, and Helvetica. Each typeface represents an important stage in the evolution of typography, and each is still widely used today. By working with these typefaces, guided by the design principles and projects presented in this book, the student learns how to use type creatively, whether it is to make type readable and esthetically pleasing or simply to attract attention."--Jacket
