Show me the money : the image of finance, 1700 to the present( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does money really stand for? How can the abstractions of high finance be made visible? Show me the money documents how the financial world has been imagined in art, illustration, photography and other visual media over the last three centuries in Britain and the United States. It tells the story of how artists have grappled with the increasingly intangible and self-referential nature of money, from the South Sea Bubble to our current crisis. Show me the money sets out the history and politics of representations of finance through five essays by academic experts and curators, and is interspersed with provocative think pieces by notable public commentators on finance and art. The book, and the exhibition on which it is based, explore a wide range of images, from satirical eighteenth-century prints by William Hogarth and James Gillray to works by celebrated contemporary artists such as Andreas Gursky and Molly Crabapple. It also charts the development of an array of financial visualisations, including stock tickers and charts, newspaper illustrations, bank adverts and electronic trading systems"--Provided by publisher

Jane Austen : a celebration( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we enter the third millennium, Jane Austen is more popular than ever. Not only her six novels, which have been dramatised, televised and filmed, but her letters and poems are alive and well. Her style, her distinctive sensibility and her no-nonsense but subtle sense of character and motive, keep her a the heart of our concerns. Maggie Lane and David Selwyn bring together in this celebration over a century of individual testimony to the abiding value of Jane Austen. They include, too, a few dissenting voices. Other novelists, teachers, politicians, actors and general readers share our passion for the 'comedian' (Bruce Chatwin), the 'unpretentious philosopher' (Lord David Cecil), the 'calm gaze' (David Kossoff), the 'genius' (Barbara Pym) that she was. There is nothing tame about her mannerly world; as W.H. Auden says, 'Beside her Joyce seems innocent as grass.' -- Book cover
