Bridge to the Future
Edited by Sergei Reviakin, this is the first published monograph on the Russian artist Oleg Kudryashov (b.1932), who broke away from the aesthetic norms imposed on Russian art since the Stalinist era to follow his own artistic goals. His work, mainly in dry-point etching, with its linear structures sometimes extended into three-dimensional reliefs and constructions, is represented here in around 250 pages of reproductions and photographs, along with four short essays and a list of works.
The Bauer Brothers
Images of Nature
Franz and Ferdinand Bauer were ground-breaking 18th- and early 19th-century natural history artists. Growing up in Austria, Franz went on to work at Kew Gardens, while Ferdinand travelled to Australia. This volume includes pioneering microscopical drawings depicting plant anatomy, and newly discovered animals, such as the platypus and koala.
A Collection of Epigrams and Epitaphs Serious and Comic
Originally published in 1933, this little book of witty epigrams and epitaphs by the English writer and poet Martin Armstrong (1882–1974) is illustrated with wood-engravings by Eric Ravilious (1903–1942). The subjects of the verses are 54 professionals or types, ranging from a judge to a snuff-taker and a ‘boarding-house lift man’; and each one is accompanied by its own woodcut.
