Paperback: $26.95

Little is known about enigmatic Cuban American cigarmaker and artist Felipe Jesus Consalvos (1891-c. 1960), whose over 800 collages were discovered at a West Philadelphia garage sale in 1983. This... More > manuscript examines Consalvos’s collage practice by speculatively tracking its orbit within a constellation of enmeshed contexts: the radical sociopolitical world of Cuban American tabaqueros; the fraught history of U.S.-Cuban relations and associated processes of cultural appropriation and hybridization; the rise of collage as a recursive development within both vernacular and elite or academic expressive culture; Consalvos’s potential positioning within the aligned discourses of contemporaneous Euro-American modernist art and poetry (especially Dada, Surrealism, and Pop); the artist’s self-declared role as “healer”; and the machinations of the contemporary North American art market.< Less
William Blake Drawings: Colour Plates By Maria Tsaneva
eBook (ePub): $0.99
William Blake was English artist, draughtsman, engraver, philosopher, and poet, one of the most remarkable figures of the Romantic period. In art as in life Blake was an individualist who made a... More > principle of nonconformity. He had a prejudice against painting in oils on canvas and experimented with a variety of techniques in colour printing, illustration, and tempera. His work as an artist is almost impossible to divorce from the complex philosophy expressed also through his poetry. He believed that the visible world of the senses is an unreal envelope behind which the spiritual reality is concealed and set himself the impossible task of creating a visual symbolism for the expression of his spiritual visions. To most of his contemporaries Blake seemed merely an eccentric, and his genius was not generally recognized until the second half of the 19th century.< Less

More > and beg to be read aloud. Lyrical marries imagistic in social commentary rich in culture from the homeless, the pub, symbols, wars, famous writers and storied citizens to the haunting beauty of art and landscapes “unchanged through time’s folded embrace.” -- Ellaraine Lockie, award-winning poet, nonfiction author, educator, Lilipoh Poetry Editor In these rich and complex poems, Sheryl Clough contemplates the interplay of the human and the natural, the litter of the quotidian beside the timeless landmarks of an ancient countryside. Her imagination is captured equally by the hunger of an ancestor who fled the Great Famine and the mordant wit of an Irish barman. -- Carol Alexander, author of Habitat Lost< Less
Gainsborough: Paintings By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Thomas Gainsborough was the most versatile English painter of the 18th century, inventive and original, always prepared to experiment with new ideas and techniques. He alone among the great portrait... More > painters of the era devoted serious attention to landscapes. Unlike Reynolds, he was no great believer in an academic tradition and laughed at the fashion for history painting; an instinctive painter, he delighted in the poetry of paint. In his letters Gainsborough shows a warm-hearted and generous character and an independent mind. His comments on his own work and methods, as well as on some of the old masters, are very revealing and throw considerable light on contemporary views of art. Gainsborough was noted for the speed with which he applied paint, and he worked more from observations of nature than from application of formal academic rules. The poetic sensibility of his paintings caused Constable to say, "On looking at them, we find tears in our eyes and know not what brings them."< Less

My God, it's a breath of fresh air. 
 John Kerrigan on Arnos Grove Strong, compulsive, often brilliant, never less than buoyantly intelligent, full-on, mostly and rightly comfortless, impressively rangy and full of involving stuff from underneath the arches and wilder reaches of a prickly brain. Most contemporary poetry is dull and preachy by comparison.< Less
