An Illustrated Journey

by Danny Gregory

Travel + Sketching = Inspiration When we travel, we don't want to follow the same itinerary as everyone who's come before us. We want to feel like explorers, adventurers in undiscovered territory. And that's exactly what sketching can bring to the travel experience. An Illustrated Journey captures the world through the eyes of 40 talented artists, illustrators and designers. You'll experience the wonder of seeing familiar sights through a fresh lens but, more important, you'll be inspired to set pen to paper and capture your own vistas. The really wonderful thing about a sketchbook is that it can be totally private. You don't have to have an ounce of talent to enjoy learning how to really see what's in front of you. But lucky for us, the sketchbooks captured here are lovely, creative, intimate windows into each artist's mind. So, whether you're just returning to the art of drawing, abandoned by most of us after childhood, or you're looking for inspiration to take your illustration work in a new direction, An Illustrated Journey will take you on a wonderful trip of the imagination. All you need to pack are a pencil and a piece of paper.

The Illustrated Shakespeare, 1709-1875

by Stuart Sillars

Illustrations have been an important element of many of the most extensively read editions of Shakespeare's plays, from the frontispieces to Nicholas Rowe's 1709 edition to the multiple images placed within the text of Victorian editions. Through symbols the illustrations have explored language and character; by allusion to earlier paintings they have offered critical readings; and by gesture, setting and costume they have redesigned the plays within the visual vocabulary of their own times. In all these ways they offer important exchanges with contemporary social, aesthetic and critical concerns, and, despite being largely ignored by scholars, are central to the plays' reception. Highly illustrated, including many images not previously reproduced, the book allows the reader to share the experience of early readers of the plays. Building on the author's earlier work in Painting Shakespeare it offers a fresh address to the tradition of visual criticism and assimilation of Shakespeare's plays.

The Illustration of the Master: Henry James and the Magazine Revolution

by Amy Tucker

In order to examine the crucial role of the illustrated press in the formation of the reading public and the writing profession during the lifetime of James (1843-1916), Tucker (American literature, City U. of New York-Queens College) rereads a significant portion of his work in light of the explosive growth of the magazine industry in the US and abroad during the period, showing how the rise of the pictorial challenged the primacy of the written text. Her topics include the rise of the illustrated magazine; double discourse in the illustrated tales of the 1890s; his Holbein stepping out of the frame; essays on illustration; and James, Joseph Pennell, and the art of the travelogue.

Illustrations of the Logic of Science

by Cornelis De Waal Charles Sanders Peirce

Charles Peirce's Illustrations of the Logic of Science is an early work in the philosophy of science and the official birthplace of pragmatism. It contains Peirce's two most influential papers: "The Fixation of Belief" and "How to Make Our Ideas Clear," as well as discussions on the theory of probability, the ground of induction, the relation between science and religion, and the logic of abduction. Unsatisfied with the result and driven by a constant, almost feverish urge to improve his work, Peirce spent considerable time and effort revising these papers. After the turn of the century these efforts gained significant momentum when Peirce sought to establish his role in the development of pragmatism while distancing himself from the more popular versions that had become current. The present edition brings together the original series as it appeared in Popular Science Monthly and a selection of Peirce's later revisions, many of which remained hidden in the mass of messy manuscripts that were left behind after his death in 1914.

Illustrative Handbook of General Surgery

by Herbert Chen

With the large number of surgical atlases in the market focusing on a variety of surgical procedures, it is almost impossible to find an area that is not comprehensively illustrated. However, almost all of these atlases are very large and serve to be 'library reference' books, which are commonly displayed in the office and utilized in that manner. There is no atlas which is easily transportable, yet one would imagine that every medical student and resident would potentially want a copy of such a title to carry on them at all times. The book aims to cover all facets of general surgery and each chapter has five to ten photographs illustrating the basic anatomical context, as well as the various techniques specific to the operation. Each chapter author provides a brief narrative describing what is going on during the operation, and also outlines common pitfalls and personal suggestions.
