Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Eric Fraser (1902-83) was one of the most prolific and versatile illustrators of his time and has made a major contribution to the art of illustration. From the age of eighteen until shortly before his death he did little else except draw, and having chosen to work in 'commercial art', he built up a range of international clients. He is best known for his drawings and covers for Radio Times.This is the first full-length publication on Eric Fraser and is fully illustrated with examples of his work covering the entire range of his output: illustrations and covers for Harpers Bazaar and Radio Times; cartoons and caricatures, including a number for Punch; book illustrations and book jackets; and posters, advertising material and Christmas cards.Fraser's achievements are discussed here by Sylvia Backemeyer, who provides an overview of Fraser's childhood and student days, his work as a designer for advertising, and his book and magazine illustration. Wendy Coates-Smith explores the inspiration and genius of some of his most important work, placing Fraser in the wider context of British illustration this century.This long overdue study of Fraser's life and work firmly reinstates him as a major contributor to the art of design and illustration.

Book How to Be Alone

  • Author : Jonathan Franzen
  • Publisher : Farrar, Straus and Giroux
  • Release : 2002-10-01
  • ISBN : 9780374173272
  • Pages : 288 pages

Download or read book How to Be Alone written by Jonathan Franzen and published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. This book was released on 2002-10-01 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Passionate, strong-minded nonfiction from the National Book Award-winning author of The Corrections Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections was the best-loved and most-written-about novel of 2001. Nearly every in-depth review of it discussed what became known as "The Harper's Essay," Franzen's controversial 1996 investigation of the fate of the American novel. This essay is reprinted for the first time in How to be Alone, along with the personal essays and the dead-on reportage that earned Franzen a wide readership before the success of The Corrections. Although his subjects range from the sex-advice industry to the way a supermax prison works, each piece wrestles with familiar themes of Franzen's writing: the erosion of civic life and private dignity and the hidden persistence of loneliness in postmodern, imperial America. Recent pieces include a moving essay on his father's stuggle with Alzheimer's disease (which has already been reprinted around the world) and a rueful account of Franzen's brief tenure as an Oprah Winfrey author. As a collection, these essays record what Franzen calls "a movement away from an angry and frightened isolation toward an acceptance--even a celebration--of being a reader and a writer." At the same time they show the wry distrust of the claims of technology and psychology, the love-hate relationship with consumerism, and the subversive belief in the tragic shape of the individual life that help make Franzen one of our sharpest, toughest, and most entertaining social critics.
