Urban interventions : personal projects in public spaces( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Evolving from graffiti and street art, urban interventions are the next generation of artwork to hit public space. Using any and all of the components that make up urban and rural landscapes, these mostly spatial interventions bring art to the masses. They turn the street into a studio, laboratory, club, and gallery. Modified traffic signs, swings at bus stops, and images created out of sand or snow challenge us to rediscover our environment and interact with it in new ways. The work is an intelligent and critical commentary on the planning, use, and commercialization of public space. With a rich visual selection of projects and methods, Urban Interventions documents this artistic approach to urban art that is making a profound mark on our contemporary visual language. The book shows the growing connections and interplay of this scene with art, architecture, performance, and installation. Propagators of urban intervention surprise and provoke with work in cities including New York and London, but also in countries such as China, Columbia, and Turkey. Everywhere the work appears it turns public spaces into individual experiences." --Cover

Behind the zines : self-publishing culture( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Introduces a cutting-edge selection of international zines and examines their role as a catalyst in the evolution of media and graphic design today. The book presents the broad range of existing zines that combine thought-provoking content with compelling design: from project-oriented portfolios and (pseudo) scientific treatises to playrooms where creatives can run riot and publications in which the printing process significantly influences aesthetics. It not only describes the key factors that distinguish various zines, but--through interviews with people involved in their production and distribution--also sheds light on various strategies for this evolving media form."--Publisher's website

Many prophesied that the printed book would be doomed by developments in digital media. Far from it! The book has not only survived, but as tactile qualities have gained significance in our increasingly digital world there is also more unhindered experimentation with bound paper pages now than ever before.

In addition, Fully Booked presents a choice selection of artist books. Created by hand and printed in limited editions, these publications push the boundaries of conventional book design.

Dot dot dash : designer toys, action figures and character art by Robert Klanten( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dot Dot Dash! is brought to you by the editors of Pictoplasma and Pictoplasma 2. Expanding on the widely popular subject of contemporary character design, this definitive volume showcases an up-to-date survey of the personalities and characters that have entered the third dimension." "Vinyl figures, plush dolls, designer toys and action figures can be seen as a new movement in contemporary design, art and popular culture. Interest for these three dimensional toys have surged, drawing on pop culture, graffiti and visual art. The new generation characters appear cute, cuddly and innocuous at first but are often elicit, subversive and politically incorrect. Not intended for child's play, they are highly esteemed by teens and adults alike. Each is a work of art often created by world famous artists and many of them are produced independently in limited editions and become highly sought after collectibles." "A recent trend of character applications aspiring from inherent crossovers of the character and art worlds, is also taking form in sculptures and objects, creating a new art market where artists are progressively moving beyond the boundaries of the gallery and extending their work to a largely disparate audience. This volume exhibits the expansive scope of designs and objects in the ultimate compilation of contemporary character design."--Jacket
Brad Downey : spontaneous sculptures by Brad Downey( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the element of surprise firmly on his side, the American artist Brad Downey creates powerful interventions that visually disrupt the routine of our urban perceptions. Downey's art discourages quick glances and celebrates the double take. Using elements from film, sculpture, painting, and drawing, he creates remarkable work ranging from the spectacular and headline-making to the small, delicate, and almost hidden. This book is the most comprehensive collection of what Brad Downey calls his Spontaneous Sculptures. It brings together attractive, provocative, and clever urban interventions by a master of the genre-many of which are documented for the first time."--Publisher's website

Art & agenda : political art and activism by Robert Klanten( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Life has become significantly more political in the new millennium, especially in the aftermath of the worldwide banking crisis. Art is both driving and documenting this upheaval. Initially, it was mostly young artists and activists who were raising their voices to protest globalization and the pollution of our environment, but increasingly the work of established artists is also becoming dominated by political topics. Art & Agenda explores the impact of political activism on contemporary art. The book introduces a variety of artists who are advocating political and social reform on a local or a global scale. Some are influenced by the traditions of Agitprop and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and work with posters, urban interventions, or graphic design. Others prefer established art forms such as painting, sculpture, or performance. The personalities and approaches of the featured artists are as diverse as their subject matter the artists goals, techniques, and degrees of radicalness depend on the cultures to which they belong as well as the social and political circles in which they move..."--Publisher description
