American visual culture by Mark Rawlinson( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Visual culture - art, advertising, architecture, cinema, television, cartography, video, the internet, and images of science - has shaped American national identity more than that of any other country. Covering the period from the late nineteenth century to the present day, the book explores how visual culture has at once transformed and consolidated the image of the United States."--Provided by publisher
Charles Sheeler : modernism, precisionism and the borders of abstraction by Mark Rawlinson( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering his complete oeuvre of work, from photography to painting, through close readings of the works themselves, Rawlinson argues that Charles Sheeler's true relationship to progress was in fact critical, his 'precisionism' both skewed and imprecise
Various small books : referencing various small books by Ed Ruscha by Phil Taylor( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1960s and 1970s, the artist Ed Ruscha created a series of small photo-conceptual artist's books, among them Twentysix Gas Stations, Various Small Fires, Every Building on the Sunset Strip, Thirtyfour Parking Lots, Real Estate Opportunities, and A Few Palm Trees. Featuring mundane subjects photographed prosaically, with idiosyncratically deadpan titles, these "small books" were sought after, collected, and loved by Ruscha's fans and fellow artists. Over the past thirty years, close to 100 other small books that appropriated or paid homage to Ruscha's have appeared throughout the world. This book collects ninety-one of these projects, showcasing the cover and sample layouts from each along with a description of the work. It also includes selections from Ruscha's books and an appendix listing all known Ruscha book tributes. These small books revisit, imitate, honor, and parody Ruscha in form, content, and title. Some rephotograph his subjects: Thirtyfour Parking Lots, Forty Years Later. Some offer a humorous variation: Various Unbaked Cookies (which concludes, as did Ruscha's Various Small Fires, with a glass of milk)
Coney Island by Rob Ball( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rob Ball explores Coney Island to tell a story of a resort rich in history and with a special cultural significance for many New Yorkers. Ball articulates this historical context through the use of the handmade and unpredictable tintype process, once widely used in Coney Island. This is balanced by his colour work documenting the area's current diversity and popularity, with images made during the busy summer period. For Ball, this is part of long-term photographic project engaging with the history of coastal resorts and their cyclical rise and fall in popularity. It is also a sequel to his previous book, 'Dreamlands', that looked at the popular amusement park in Margate. As with Margate, Coney Island in Brooklyn has undergone a period of repair after years of neglect and this is reflected in the work
