Howard Pyle. A Chronicle, Abbot, Charles D.; Wyeth, N. C.
2 Abbot, Charles D.; Wyeth, N. C. Howard Pyle. A Chronicle
New York and London Harper & Brothers, Publishers 1925 1925 First Edition Cloth Very Good Small 4to Pyle, Howard 
250pp. 38 b&w and 7 colour illustrations (most of these are full-page plates, some of the b&w are in-text illustrations). Very nicely typeset, in a slightly folksy American style. A lot of lightish foxing to colour frontispiece and title page, some lighter foxing immediately before and after. A few spots of light foxing in the text and along the fore-edge and a tiny bit of grubbying to very bottom corner, but otherwise nice and bright. Grey paper jacket quite grubbied and very chipped along the head, with some losses and is a bit speckled; spine is a tad rolled. Affectionate biography of the man who was not only founder of the school at Wilmington and teacher to artists such as N. C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, Jessie Wilcox Smith and Frank E. Schoonover, but also one of America's best-loved illustrators.

Spank the Monkey, Alonso, Pedro &  Peter Doroshenko
14 Alonso, Pedro & Peter Doroshenko Spank the Monkey
Germany Die Gestalten 2006 2006 3899551745 / 9783899551747 Paperback As New 4to. 
Spank The Monkey" is an international survey of recent contemporary urban art by independent curator Pedro Alonzo and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art Director Peter Doroshenko. Starring both artists from the established art arena and those from the 'street art' scene, who have created an art system of their own, far removed from that of the museum and gallery circuit, it addresses the parallels between these two functioning and often entirely separate art worlds. Presenting new and recent works by twenty-two artists who share a remarkable creative vitality and innovative spirit, the accompanying essays examine the works and place them in a broad context of urban and street art. "Spank The Monkey' brings together established art world figures and heroes from the Street scene, ranging from works by Barry Mc Gee and iconic street artist Miss Van, through to Japanese graphic designers Groovisions, a billboard campaign by Shepard Fairey, a sculpture and painting installation by graffiti artists Os Gemeos, Swoon's signature wheat paste ups in a uniquely designed cityscape and urban interventions by Banksy. Featuring painting, sculpture, drawing, graphic design, installation, illustration and photography, they evoke a distinctive and irreverent vision informed as much by independent music, street culture, graphic design, manga comics, skateboarding, surfing, fashion and politics, as by the conventions of the contemporary art world. This book harnesses the energy of some of the most significant artists to emerge from this new international sub-culture. Featured artists include: Chiho Aoshima, Banksy, Dzine, Dr. Lakra, Faile, Freaks Gallery, Shepard Fairey, Groovisions, Invader, Kozyndan, Barry McGee, Ryan McGinness, Takashi Murakami, Miss Van, Neasden Control Centre, Os Gemeos, David Shrigley, Natasha Struchkova, Swoon, Aya Takano, Ed Templeton, and Yasumasa Yonehara. sealed copy
