    Japanese Animation HC (2010 Flammarion) From Painted Scrolls to Pokemon 1-1ST

    1st printing. By Brigitte Koyama-Richard. A dominant force in its home country since the 1970s, Japanese animation has become a global phenomenon in recent years. Far from being a contemporary invention, anime draws on the same centuries-old artistic traditions that form the basis of manga. Brigitte Koyama-Richard studies the evolution of Japanese animation through the centuries, retracing its history from painted scrolls to woodblock prints, to animated films, first in black and white, and then in color. Illustrated with over 500 images, this book bridges the gap between art history and pop culture. Hardcover, 9-in. x 11-in., 248 pages, PC/B&W. Cover price $49.95.

    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.
