    It Must Be Art! Big O Poster Artists of the 1960s and 70s HC (2018 Schiffer) 1-1ST It Must Be Art! Big O Poster Artists of the 1960s and 70s HC (2018 Schiffer) 1-1ST

    1st printing.

    Text by Michael Fishel.

    Throughout the 1960s and 70s, London-based Big O Posters helped define the new and democratic art medium of the psychedelic poster, a vehicle for rebellion against the old order that went hand in hand with the music, literature, and film of the time. Included in more than 300 images are works by 19 artists, including Martin Sharp, Roger Dean, H.R. Giger, Robert Venosa, and Vali Myers whose signature styles include sci-fi, fantasy, visionary, botanical, and surrealism. This book digs below the surface to offer insights and anecdotes about the era, the artistic process, and reveals connections to artists from the past (Aubrey Beardsley, Alphonse Mucha, Kay Nielsen) whose spirit chimed with the age of Big O Posters.

    Jews and American Comics: An Illustrated History of an American Art Form HC (2008 New Press) 1-1ST

    1st printing. By Paul Buhle. Readers have long cherished the work of comic masters such as Will Eisner, Jules Feiffer, and Art Spiegelman, all of whom happen to be Jewish. Few, however, are probably aware that the Jewish role in creating the American comic art form is no less significant than the Jewish influence on Hollywood filmmaking. Filled with the most stunning examples of this vital artistic tradition, Jews and American Comics tells us how the people of the book became the people of the comic book. With three brief essays by Paul Buhle, the well-known historian of American Jewish life, Jews and American Comics offers readers a pictorial backstory tracing Jewish involvement in comic art from several little-known strips in Yiddish newspapers of the early twentieth century through the mid-century origins of the modern comic book and finally to contemporary comic art, which has at last found its place in museums, in private collections, and on the bookshelves of both critics and millions of avid readers. Featuring more than two hundred examples of the work of Jewish comic artists going back a century—much of which has been unavailable to the general public for decades—this extraordinary collection will be a major contribution to Jewish and American cultural history. Jews and American Comics is also a gorgeous package, sure to be treasured by comic art lovers and fans of Jewish culture—and destined to become the bar and bat mitzvah gift of the decade. Hardcover, 9 1/2-in. x 9 1/2-in., 196 pages, B&W. Cover price $29.95.

    1st printing.

    While many cartoonists in the late '60s and early '70s were "turning on, tuning in, and dropping out," Jim Osborne was cut from a much darker cloth, delving into the extreme underbelly of American popular culture with unsettling comics about murder, conspiracy, and demons, both figurative and literal. Jim Osborne: The Black Prince of the Underground includes a biography of Osborne by Dennis Dread and collects all of the artist's stories and illustrations from formative publications like Yellow Dog, Bijou Funnies, and National Lampoon, many republished here for the first time in decades.

    Softcover, 132 pages, B&W. Mature Readers Cover price $25.00.
