The global Africa project ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
"This book provides a savvy survey of the latest work by designers, craftspeople, and architects of African descent from around the world. Artists and designers of African ancestry--many in Africa but also others throughout Europe, the Americas, and the Far East--are working in a wide array of mediums: fashion, architecture, non-traditional crafts, design, fine art, and photography. Authors Lowery Stokes Sims and Leslie King-Hammond, together with six contributors, challenge presumptions of what constitutes an "African" style or aesthetic, and demonstrate the power and expressive potential of materials, textures and forms. Work by well-known artists such as Yinka Shonibare, MBE and architects including David Adjaye appear alongside those of lesser-known but equally exciting designers whose garments, carpets, baskets, ceramics, furniture, body arts, wall painting, photographs and sculpture blur the distinction between art and craft. The result is an enormously diverse display of young and established talent, and a wide-ranging survey of contemporary African art and design."--Publisher's website

The book demonstrates how contemporary creators have engaged the medium of wood in strategies that might be described as "postmodern, " employing mimicry, assemblage, virtuosity, and whimsy (with a serious purpose). Environmental issues also are prominently addressed. Artists represented include Derek Bencomo, Gary Carsley, Hunt Clark, Piet Hein Eek, David Ellsworth, Sebastian Errazuriz, Bud Latven, Mark Lindquist, Thomas Loeser, Sarah Oppenheimer, William Pope.

Thomas Jeckyll : architect and designer, 1827-1881 by Susan Weber Soros( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Thomas Jeckyll ranks among the least understood and most tragic Aesthetic Movement figures in England. This illustrated book explores his innovative and brilliant designs in architecture, furniture, metalwork, and interiors and restores him to his deserved place among the architect/designers of his time. It is the definitive study of Jeckyll's life and work and presents his notable buildings and diverse examples of his decorative arts." "Susan Weber Soros and Catherine Arbuthnott examine Jeckyll's most important architectural commissions, among them the extravagant five-story Cambridge town house known as Rance's Folly. They also discuss the interiors he designed - some of the most captivating and evocative Aesthetic Movement rooms of his time - which included the famous Peacock Room created for shipping magnate Frederick Richards Leyland, and later decorated by James McNeill Whistler. The book also considers Jeckyll's remarkable furniture and metalwork designs, for which he is best-known today, including the Four Seasons gates, which were exhibited and highly praised at the Exhibition Universelle, Paris, in 1867 and the Weltaustellung, Vienna, in 1873."--BOOK JACKET
