Michael Graves: Images of a Grand Tour

Michael Graves: Images of a Grand Tour

Princeton Architectural Press, $29.95 The coveted prix de rome scholarship, awarded yearly by the American Academy in Rome, took a young Michael Graves to Italy in 1960. Over 250 sketches and photographs from his two years of architectural studies in the Eternal City, and his subsequent travels through Europe, are the subject of a new book called <i>Michael Graves: Images of a Grand Tour</i>. Brian M. Ambroziak notes in the introduction that throughout his long career, Graves has honored architectural precedent not merely by “treating or employing history, but rather by participating in its continuities.” Thus sketches and photographs—a view of the Forum framed by a narrow doorway, the oculus of the Pantheon, Stonehenge—not only record the vernacular architectural language of an ancient time and place but suggest how, in his work, Graves has extended the architectural dialogue. <i>Images of a Grand Tour</i> stands on its own as an inspirational collection of beautiful and visually compelling renderings.

One of their latest releases, At A Crossroads by Kate T. Williamson is a hilarious illustrated book worth checking out. as described on the site: At a Crossroads is a unique graphic memoir about the common, yet little-discussed, "boomerang years." With sharp wit and expressive drawings, Williamson illustrates the joys, disappointments, comforts, and embarrassments of life back home with mom and dad. Highlights and low points include celebrating her twenty-fourth birthday at a Hall – Oates concert with her mother; noticing the train sounds from her bedroom for the first time; battling an infestation of squirrels; discovering that the ballet class she has signed up for is actually for children, and attending anyway; getting mail from her college crush, who has developed an interest in taxidermy; wearing a chain-mail belt of her own creation to her cousin's Renaissance-themed wedding.

It still has a locking switch and 2 power modes, low and high. It's a lot lighter though. The Shockwave makes you carry around 8 'C' cell batteries, which are pretty heavy. This light cuts the weight in half while giving you virtually the same luminosity - 150 lumens. Plus, you're using LED lights, which just about never burn out, give an intense white glow and are pretty impossible to break. Lasts for 4 hours on high, 10 on low. Adjustable wrist strap included.

  • I love these shoes. They actually are alot more pointy in RL, but surprisingly comfortable. Bronx shoes are a nice balance of traditional and contemporary

From the Princeton Architectural Press description of Blackstock's Collections: The Drawings of An Artistic Savant, by Gregory L. Blackstock: "Gregory L. Blackstock, a retired Seattle pot washer, draws order out of all the chaos with a pencil, a black marker, and some crayons. Blackstock is autistic and an artistic savant. He creates visual lists of everything from wasps to hats to emergency vehicles to noisemakers. In the spirit of the Outsider art of Henry Darger and Howard Finster, Blackstock makes art that is stirring in its profusion and detail and inspiring in its simple beauty." (http://www.papress.com/bookpage.tpl?isbn=1568985797) I can't improve on that! This is a prize for your curio cabinet, truly. An unmissable gem.

  • Gregory L. Blackstock's illustrations are intriguing.

This has got to be the most interesting story I've heard in years. A private investigator and vinyl-junkie stumbles upon what seems to be garbage at a flea market in downtown DC: a collection of handmade cardboard albums with amazing painted cover art, liner notes, serial numbers and even cardboard "records" inside dating from the late 60's and early 70's. Realizing these records, over 50 LPs, at least as many 45s and lyric sheets, were more than mere refuse, Dori Hadar put his detective skills to work and soon located the mystery soul superstar the world had never heard of, Mingering Mike, nearly 30 years after he created these albums. A friendship soon formed between Dori and Mike and together they decided to shine a light on the body of work that Mike had kept secret for decades. They made public the audio and visual diary made during Mike's formative years, from a teenager who dreamed of becoming a star to an adult who faced the Vietnam draft, civil unrest in the nation's capitol, the scourge of drugs in the inner city and all the amazing music to come out of those turbulent years. Mike's work seen as a whole is truly a document of one man's experience during America's most creative and destructive periods. The book and the exhibit (if you can make it to DC) are truly mind-blowing. Don't sleep on this. With stories from the New York Times, The New Yorker, Wax Poetics, The Fader, Flaunt, Tokion and Entertainment Weekly, among many others, heaping praise on the new book, Mingering Mike: The Amazing Career of an Imaginary Soul Superstar (2007, Princeton Architectural Press) the most celebrated outsider-artist since the discovery of Henry Darger is finally getting his due. Currently, most of Mingering Mike's work is on display through the end of July at Hemphill Fine Arts in Washington DC. A portion of the work was also displayed at the South Eastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in 2005. There are currently plans to have the show travel to LA, NY and Europe. A limited edition vinyl 45 of "There's Nothing Wrong with You Baby" is due to be released in a few weeks courtesy of the Vanguard Squad. A CD of Mike's music interpreted by current artists is in the works as well.

Princeton Architectural Press, $125 Let’s say you get a client who wants his house completely decorated in woven wire, or is set on having a golf course installed in the backyard.
