    1st printing.

    Edited by Peter Richardson.

    In August 1914 much of Europe was pitched into a war which would eclipse all others in terms of its industrialised ferocity.

    In an era where photography and film recording were still in their infancy, much of the news was relayed through the work of reportage artists. Pre-eminent amongst such artists was Fortunino Matania who was The Sphere's artist-on-the-spot for events ranging from coronations to colliery disasters. Sent to a variety of fronts to cover the conflict, his illustrations created a gripping and, at times, life-affirming testimony to those traumatic times.

    For the first time ever, this book collects those images in large format so that they can be viewed as they were intended.

    1st printing.

    Text By TaraDiLullo. Foreword by Dr. Victor Davis Hanson.

    What does it mean to turn one of the great graphic novels of our time into a major motion picture?

    In 1998, Frank Miller shook the comics world with his groundbreaking series 300.

    Marking Miller's first collaboration with watercolor artist Lynn Varley (Ronin, The Dark Knight Returns) in over a decade, 300 was a gritty reimagining of a battle in which three hundred Spartan soldiers fought to hold back the entire Persian army.

    The series won five Eisner Awards, including Best Limited Series, Best Writer/Artist (Miller), and Best Colorist (Varley). 300: The Art of the Movie takes you behind the scenes as director Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead) adapts 300 to the silver screen. With two hundred pages of production photos, concept art, and much, much more, 300: The Art of the Movie is sure to delight Miller fans and movie buffs alike.

    Hardcover (horizontal format), 13-in. x 10-in., 130 pages, Text (with full color photos and sketches).

    NOTE: "I knew this wasn't another typical sword-and-sandals movie, or a seven-hour-long lesson in historical accuracy. There are dozens of ways to retell the Battle of Thermopylae, but to adapt the story as presented in 300, I knew this was as much about bringing Frank Miller and Lynn Varley's visual style to life, as it was about the historical event itself." - Grant Freckelton (Visual Effects Designer)

Tick, tick, boom. Open the cover of this graphic novel to unleash a bombastic bomb blast of frenetic line work, a cacophony of vibrant color, and an action-packed narrative that whirls and swirls in all directions like the furious, roaring winds of a mushroom cloud. Enter the blast radius of this conflagration of imagination and experience how brilliantly its creative fires burn. A BOOK TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH marks the explosive English language debut of Flemish cartoonist Lukas Verstraete.

It all culminates in an epic, breathtakingly rendered battle between good and evil. At turns playful, philosophical, and kinetically riotous, you've never seen a graphic novel quite like this.

    1st printing.

    By David Rault.

    Typography confronts us everywhere: in books and newspapers, on road signs, in product packaging, and on political leaflets. Fonts spark emotions; they evoke eras and ideologies. Some, like Edward Johnson's for the London Underground, have become iconic. Others, like Comic Sans, are loathed. Each one has its own place in history.

    The ABC of Typography traces 3,500 years of type from Sumerian pictographs through Roman calligraphy to Gutenberg, the Bauhaus, and beyond. Brimming with insight and anecdote, this witty and well-informed graphic guide explores the historical, technological, and cultural shifts that have defined the look of the words we read.

    Hardcover, 8-in. x 10-in., 128 pages, full color.

Declared insane at the end of his life, many have said that only an insane mind couldve conceived of such illustrations. Although Grandville has slipped into obscurity for most people, his art is often used today as the basis for clip art files. 32 Pages, B&W. Cover price $2.50.
