Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

This book reveals the work of four remarkable amateur artists whose common trait is fantasy. One is an English housewife, born in wartime Berlin, who engraves images of another world which she visits in outer space; one is a Swiss psychiatrist who photographs abstract art found in tree bark; one is a Chinese chef who fled Peking ahead of the Communists and now creates his own Garden of Eden from bits of postage stamps; and one is a Belgian baroness who focuses her color camera on the secret face of life itself - the ultimate fantasy - discovered in her forest-garden. Fantasy is prefaced by an eight-page selection of exuberant (and exclusive) "Souvenirs of a Magic World" given to the author by Pablo Picasso as tokens of his friendship. They richly illustrate the veteran artist's joie de vivre when confronting the challenge of his own imagination: he voiced a concern, shared by Renoir, over the risk of crushing, through conformity, those elusive and often fragile fantasies seen by children - probably the greatest dreamers. Photographer-editor David Douglas Duncan has brought master craftsmanship to the expanding realm of fantasy hobbies, now discovered everywhere behind today's life of increasing leisure and holiday week-ends. He produced this book on presses of Imprimeries Reunies, Lausanne, among the most renowned of all Swiss printers. Mr. Duncan is also the author of The Private World of Pablo Picasso, Picasso's Picassos, Goodbye Picasso and The Silent Studio. For years, he had numerous camera essays published in Life magazine, then later contributed one-man photographic specials to NBC-TV and ABC-TV. He also photographed and wrote Great Treasures of the Kremlin, Yankee Nomad, This Is War!, I Protest!, War Without Heroes, a book on prismatic photography, and Self-Portrait: U.S.A., a penetrating view of the historic 1968 American presidential conventions in Miami Beach and Chicago.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
