Rude Britannia : British comic art by Tim Batchelor( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 197 libraries worldwide
Put together with some the country's best-known cartoonists and comedy writers, this exhibition explores British comic art from the 1600s to the present day. Bringing together a wide array of paintings, sculptures, film and photography, as well as graphic art and comic books, the exhibition celebrates a rich history of cartooning and visual jokes. The room on the Absurd is curated by comedian Harry Hill, and includes such diverse materials as Alice in Wonderland illustrations, David Shrigley's sculpture, and films by Edwina Ashton and Oliver Michaels. Within the Bawdy, Donald McGill's smutty seaside postcards can be seen with works by artists as different as Aubrey Beardsley, Sarah Lucas, and Grayson Perry. The rooms exploring Politics, Social Satire and Cruikshank's Victorian masterpiece The Worship of Bacchus, have been put together with Gerald Scarfe, Steve Bell, and the cartoonists from Viz. These show the power of comic art as a form of social and political commentary throughout history, from satires of Georgian society by Rowlandson and Gillray to Spitting Image's damning Thatcher puppet. Looking at comedy that is both timeless and of-its-time, Rude Britannia contrasts contemporary artists such as Angus Fairhurst with key historical pieces, and covers everything from Hogarth to the YBAs
Magic show by Jonathan Allen( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
Magic Show demonstrates how visual artists adopt the perception-shifting tactics of the theatrical magician to explore questions of creative agency, the power of suggestion, and the fragility of belief. Artists, like magicians, manipulate and mystify not simply for entertainment, but to redress fundamental relationships within the social, political or cultural realm. This richly illustrated book, with over 100 colour reproductions, contains essays that elaborate on the intersections between art and magic by Jonathan Allen and Sally O'Reilly, as well as texts on each of the 24 featured artists. It also contains new writing on arcane images and esoteric ideas from the cultural history of magic by Simon During, Brigitte Felderer, Peter Lamont, Pierre Taillefer, Helen Varola and Marina Warner; a fold-out collation of texts and images exploring the dynamics of magic, art and power; and an illustrated selection of curious props and off-beat ephemera from the world of theatrical magic

Lucy williams by Laura McLean-Ferris( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 45 libraries worldwide
"The work of Lucy Williams successfully navigates the contradiction between her subject matter - stark, brutal mid-twentieth-century Modernist architecture - and her medium: intricate mixed media bas-reliefs. In this monograph, artworks are presented alongside period photographs of the architecture, which is often no longer in existence, that provided the inspiration for William's collages. The subject matter is diverse; Williams depicts apartament blocks, swimming pools, and shop fronts that stand modestly unpopulated but yet remain deeply human." -- Back of dust jacket

Collage : assembling contemporary art ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
"This book seeks to trace through seminal essays by art critics Sally O'Reilly and David Lillington and artists John Stezaker and Ian Monroe. Divided into five themes, Collage is lavishly illustrated with works by both collage 'masters', such as Picasso, Georges Braque, Kurt Schwitters and Richard Hamilton, as well as those by contemporary artists who are finding new ways to define the medium. As a result, this volume presents a rich history that serves both as a context in which to consider contemporary developments in collage as well as the implications for future practice."--Jacket
