Deco españa : graphic design of the twenties and thirties by Steven Heller ( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in Spanish and English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Vibrant and emotional, Spanish Art Deco brings a unique twist to the style of this era. Neither classically refined like French Deco, nor streamlined like American, Spanish Deco shows the influences of its own distinctive culture. Here was a highly industrialized country on the cusp of the advertising age, bringing to commercial design its own sense of style and of the avant-garde. It was also a country in the throes of social strife, and Deco Espana reveals the power of graphic design used for political as well as commercial purposes - notably in the posters created in the tumultuous days of the Spanish Civil War, many of which are reproduced here for the first time."--BOOK JACKET
Deco type : stylish alphabets of the '20s & '30s by Steven Heller ( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the book that graphic designers and type aficionados have been waiting for: the first book in Chronicle's Art Deco design series devoted exclusively to type. Garnered from vintage specimen sheets and catalogs as well as commercial design artifacts from Germany, France, Japan, Holland, Italy, Russia, Eastern Europe, and the United States, these alphabets illustrate how the stunning style of the twenties and thirties extended to every facet of graphic design, including the typographer's art." "Deco typestyles, like Deco architecture and furniture, were the heralds of the Machine Age, designed to embody progress. Endowed with a jazzy modernistic sensibility and baptized with evocative futuristic names such as Vulcan and Metropolis, these spectacular typefaces paved the way for a new era of communication via the printed word. In Deco Type, the team of Steven Heller and Louise Fili have brought together a unique collection of wonderful typefaces - many that have lain hidden for decades - to create an inspirational reference for designers and graphic artists everywhere."--BOOK JACKET

Counter culture : the allure of mini-mannequins by Steven Heller ( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"If sex sells, then what better come-on for merchants of the repressed decades of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s than the come-hither gaze of a coquettish counter-top mannequin?" "In Counter Culture, Steven Heller and Louise Fili draw the curtain on a colorful peep show of commercial culture. Theirs is a surreal look at how mini-mannequins and other counter-top displays play on the unconscious desires of consumers, guiding them to that ultimate act - the consumption of goods." "Heller and Fili's mutual obsession with the art of popular culture has given us over eighty books. Their extensive collection of mannequins, evocatively photographed here by Tony Cenicola, is stored in a New York apartment. "At night," Heller winks, "they come alive.""--BOOK JACKET

MAUS : a survivor's tale, II : and here my troubles began by Art Spiegelman ( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A memoir of Vladek Spiegleman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler's Europe, and about his son, a cartoonist who tries to come to terms with his father, his story, and history. Cartoon format portrays Jews as mice, Nazis as cats. Using a unique comic-strip-as-graphic-art format, the story of Vladek Spiegelman's passage through the Nazi Holocaust is told in his own words. Acclaimed as a "quiet triumph" and a "brutally moving work of art," the first volume of Art Spiegelman's Maus introduced readers to Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler's Europe, and his son, a cartoonist trying to come to terms with his father, his father's terrifying story, and History itself. Its form, the cartoon (the Nazis are cats, the Jews mice), succeeds perfectly in shocking us out of any lingering sense of familiarity with the events described, approaching, as it does, the unspeakable through the diminutive. As the New York Times Book Review commented," [it is] a remarkable feat of documentary detail and novelistic vividness...an unfolding literary event." This long-awaited sequel, subtitled And Here My Troubles Began, moves us from the barracks of Auschwitz to the bungalows of the Catskills. Genuinely tragic and comic by turns, it attains a complexity of theme and a precision of thought new to comics and rare in any medium. Maus ties together two powerful stories: Vladek's harrowing tale of survival against all odds, delineating the paradox of daily life in the death camps, and the author's account of his tortured relationship with his aging father. Vladek's troubled remarriage, minor arguments between father and son, and life's everyday disappointments are all set against a backdrop of history too large to pacify. At every level this is the ultimate survivor's tale -- and that too of the children who somehow survive even the survivors
