Defining beauty in art as the result of man's pleasure in his work, the noted English poet, designer, craftsman and pioneer Socialist William Morris (1834-1896) spent most of his life enthusiastically expounding this view through his many attractive designs for interior furnishings. The present book faithfully reproduces 40 of the most celebrated examples of Morris's work, reprinting in full color all the color plates from The Art of William Morris, published by George Bell & Sons in 1897. Included in this splendid, ready-to-use archive are richly detailed wallpaper designs incorporating marigold, vine, acanthus, apple, wild tulip, daisy and trellis motifs; hand-painted tiles with a rose pattern; chintzes displaying honeysuckle and bird and anemone designs; an acanthus design on printed velveteen; a superb peacock and dragon design on woven wool tapestry; a magnificent Kidderminster carpet with its lily motif. Originally intended to decorate Victorian homes, these tasteful patterns provide a wealth of source material for modern artists working in advertising, textile, residential or industrial design. Commercial artists and graphic designers will welcome this modestly priced collection of copyright-free designs by one of the most influential artists of the Victorian period.

Автор: Morris Kline Название: Mathematics for the Nonmathematician ISBN: 0486248232 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780486248233 Издательство: Dover Рейтинг: Цена: 13370 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: Practical, scientific, philosophical, and artistic problems have caused men to investigate mathematics. But there is one other motive which is as strong as any of these -- the search for beauty. Mathematics is an art, and as such affords the pleasures which all the arts afford." In this erudite, entertaining college-level text, Morris Kline, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at New York University, provides the liberal arts student with a detailed treatment of mathematics in a cultural and historical context. The book can also act as a self-study vehicle for advanced high school students and laymen. Professor Kline begins with an overview, tracing the development of mathematics to the ancient Greeks, and following its evolution through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the present day. Subsequent chapters focus on specific subject areas, such as "Logic and Mathematics," "Number: The Fundamental Concept," "Parametric Equations and Curvilinear Motion," "The Differential Calculus," and "The Theory of Probability." Each of these sections offers a step-by-step explanation of concepts and then tests the student's understanding with exercises and problems. At the same time, these concepts are linked to pure and applied science, engineering, philosophy, the social sciences or even the arts. In one section, Professor Kline discusses non-Euclidean geometry, ranking it with evolution as one of the "two concepts which have most profoundly revolutionized our intellectual development since the nineteenth century." His lucid treatment of this difficult subject starts in the 1800s with the pioneering work of Gauss, Lobachevsky, Bolyai and Riemann, and moves forward to the theory of relativity, explaining the mathematical, scientific and philosophical aspects of this pivotal breakthrough. Mathematics for the Nonmathematician exemplifies Morris Kline's rare ability to simplify complex subjects for the nonspecialist.

Автор: Merideth Название: Everyday Dress of Rural America, 1783-1800: With Instructions and Patterns ISBN: 0486273202 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780486273204 Издательство: Dover Рейтинг: Цена: 8680 T Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка. Описание: Students and enthusiasts of period costume as well as needleworkers interested in re-creating authentic costumes of America's post-Revolutionary era will welcome this comprehensive, scholarly treatment. It not only discusses and describes the clothing worn in rural America (primarily in New England) between 1783 and 1800, it is one of the few books to include scaled drawings of patterns and full instructions for making most of the garments. The attire includes the clothing both of settlers and of the Abenaki Indians of New England. The Abenaki traditionally wore clothing made of soft tanned deerskin or moosehide, sometimes decorated with dyes or with complex embroidery of dyed porcupine quills and moose hair. By the late eighteenth century, however, the Abenaki had adopted certain of the settlers' garments, such as the men's shirt and the women's shift. Similarly, the settlers had begun to wear moccasins, leggings, and other Indian garments when it made sense in their daily lives. The heart of this book is devoted to full descriptions and scaled patterns for specific garments. For women: shift, petticoat and skirt, gowns, neckerchief, apron, headgear, and more. Men's clothes include shirt, cravat and stock, breeches and breechcloth, waistcoat, coat, frock, and headgear. Also covered are men's and women's stockings, leggings, shoes, and moccasins. While the majority of the clothing was worn in rural areas, small-town clothing is described as well. Cultural and costume historians, or anyone interested in the clothing styles of the late eighteenth century in rural America, will find a rich store of information and practical instruction in this book. It belongs in the library of any lover of antique clothing or needleworker wishing to duplicate the everyday dress of our forebears.
