Harry Clarke, Illustrations for E. A. Poe

Harry Clarke, Illustrations for E. A. Poe
Harry Clarke, Illustrations for E. A. Poe A friend gave me her parents' copy of this 1923 rarity to scan: Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Poe, illustrated by Harry Clarke (Ireland, 1889 - 1931). She remembers being fascinated and haunted by details like the killer's toes from The Tell-Tale Heart. Also, don't miss this cartoon on YouTube: 'The Tell-Tale Heart is a wonderful animated short film of 1953 based on Edgar Allan Poe short-story. I should thank here Cary Loren and Gilbert Alter-Gilbert, who earlier this year turned me on to Harry Clarke, independently, within minutes of each other. I have not seen the 2008 Calla edition (Calla seems to be a division of Dover, marketing to bibliophiles), but it includes all 8 color images and the 24 large monotone images, so I would say buy it before it's gone. Here are the 24 black and white images. All Harry Clarke posts on 50 Watts Tweet this Related:  Le noir, c'est fantastique!

Harry Clarke Harry Clarke (17 March 1889 – 6 January 1931) was an Irish stained-glass artist and book illustrator. Born in Dublin, he was a leading figure in the Irish Arts and Crafts Movement. §History[edit] Completing his education in his main field, Clarke traveled to London, where he sought employment as a book illustrator. Picked up by London publisher Harrap, he started with two commissions which were never completed: Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (his work on which was destroyed during the 1916 Easter Rising) and an illustrated edition of Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock.[citation needed] "They danced with shawls that were woven of mist and moonshine" - one of Clarke's illustrations for Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen (1916). Difficulties with these projects made Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen his first printed work, however, in 1916—a title that included 16 colour plates and more than 24 halftone illustrations.

Dirty 30s! - The Lester Dent Pulp Paper Master Fiction Plot This is a formula, a master plot, for any 6000 word pulp story. It has worked on adventure, detective, western and war-air. It tells exactly where to put everything. No yarn of mine written to the formula has yet failed to sell. The business of building stories seems not much different from the business of building anything else. Here's how it starts: One of these DIFFERENT things would be nice, two better, three swell. A different murder method could be--different. If the victims are killed by ordinary methods, but found under strange and identical circumstances each time, it might serve, the reader of course not knowing until the end, that the method of murder is ordinary. Scribes who have their villain's victims found with butterflies, spiders or bats stamped on them could conceivably be flirting with this gag. Probably it won't do a lot of good to be too odd, fanciful or grotesque with murder methods. Here, again one might get too bizarre. Unique locale? SO FAR: Does it have SUSPENSE?

Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Um. Anyway, I found all I could really do was try to explain ways to teach yourself...and then add some pictures. alexander aksakov photography Необычные картины от Gil Bruvel - Форум Французский художник и скульптор, родился в 1959 году. Джил первые четыре года своей жизни провел в Сиднее, Австралия. Затем его семья переехала в маленькую деревню Истрес на юге Франции. Здесь его родители, музыканты- пианисты по образованию, обнаружили художественный талант младшего сына и с девяти лет отдали его учиться рисованию. В возрасте 12 лет Джил написал свою первую картину маслом,и с этого момента живопись становится страстью его жизни. С 14 лет Брювель начал подрабатывать в реставрационной мастерской. В возрасте 16 лет его первая выставка была организована в Музее des Baux-de-Provenance и прошла с большим успехом. Художник основал свою студию в Сан-Реми де Провансе и трудился там до 1986 года. В Соединенные Штаты Брювель впервые приехал с выставкой в 1986 году, а с 1990 года переехал туда на постоянное место жительства.

Dessins d'Odilon Redon (1840-1916) Odilon Redon Le Prisonnier© RMN-Grand Palais (Musée d'Orsay) / Gérard Blot Jusqu'au milieu des années 1890, Redon se consacre essentiellement à son oeuvre graphique. Il s'agit de gravures et de dessins, notamment les noirs, fusains étranges et précieux qu'il expose à Paris pour la première fois au début des années 1880. Il a lui-même commenté sa découverte du fusain, dans une lettre publiée par L'Art moderne en juin 1894, sous le titre de "Confidences d'Artiste" :"Cette matière quelconque, qui n'a aucune beauté en soi, facilitait bien mes recherches du clair-obscur et de l'invisible. C'est une matière mal vue des artistes, et négligée. L'oeuvre de Redon déroute nombre de ses contemporains par son imaginaire et son iconographie à la lisière du fantastique.

Amanda Hocking, the writer who made millions by self-publishing online When historians come to write about the digital transformation currently engulfing the book-publishing world, they will almost certainly refer to Amanda Hocking, writer of paranormal fiction who in the past 18 months has emerged from obscurity to bestselling status entirely under her own self-published steam. What the historians may omit to mention is the crucial role played in her rise by those furry wide-mouthed friends, the Muppets. To understand the vital Muppet connection we have to go back to April 2010. We find Hocking sitting in her tiny, sparsely furnished apartment in Austin, Minnesota. Then it comes to her. "I'm going to sell books on Amazon," she announces to her housemate, Eric. To which Eric replies: "Yeah. Let's jump to October 2010. So let the historians take note: Amanda Hocking does get to Chicago to see the Muppets. But step inside and convention gives way to a riot of colour. By the age of seven she was reading Jaws by Peter Benchley and anything by Stephen King.

Gaston Redon Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Gaston Fernand Redon, né à Bordeaux le 28 octobre 1853 et mort à Paris le 20 novembre 1921, est un architecte français, Prix de Rome, qui s'est consacré pour l'essentiel à sa carrière d'enseignant à l'École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts. Il est le frère cadet (13 ans et demi d'écart) du peintre symboliste Odilon Redon. Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Issus d'une riche famille bordelaise désargentée, les trois frères Redon s'orientent vers des carrières artistiques : son frère Ernest est musicien, mais surtout son autre frère, Odilon, le plus connu, devient peintre. Élève à l'École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts, il est diplômé en 1883 et obtient la même année le grand prix de Rome. Profondément désintéressé par le métier quotidien de l'architecte, il réalise un certain nombre de dessins représentant une architecture onirique. Principales réalisations[modifier | modifier le code] Casino municipal de Royan, 1895.
