Intended for collectors and for those nostalgic for their childhood best "reads," this oversize book (11.5x10.75) showcases American children's books published between 1900 and 1970, featuring 400-plus color reproductions of covers (and some interior illustrations), with captions that include bibliographic information and guidance to their dollar value as collectibles. The text by journalists Joseph and Cheryl Homme discusses various genres and the details of some books, authors, and series. After a section on the early days of publishing and the classics, arrangement is by genre mysteries, westerns and war, adventure, science-fiction, and sports. The lack of an index hinders easy access to the contents. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Hardcover      ISBN: 3822872032
""lf you wish to get hold of the invisible, you must penetrate as deeply as possible into the visible"". Max Beckmann might have been talking about his life as much as his brutally honest and dazzlingly choreographic paintings, for, when he died on a New York street corner in 1950, he had lived one of the most excoriatingly self-critical lives in modern art He left behind a body of work spanning five decades, work that found its direction and energy in the Paris of the 1920's. A magnet to artists, Paris gave Beckmann the creative competition he craved. Travelling there regularly (and settling there later), he mixed Freely with the likes of Matisse, Picasso and Delaunay, formulating a style that grew out of the passionate relationship between the German and French avant-garde. But Beckmann was always his own man, and while he soaked up the artistic fervour of the Parisian cafes and ateliers, he maintained a critical distance that allowed him to develop an intensely personal technique and oeuvre. Part Expressionist, part Cubist, Beckmann's art is one of self, cities and street-life, and this profusely and beautifully illustrated catalogue allows us finally to confirm Beckmann's pre-eminence in the most dynamic art scene of the Twentieth Century.
