An art form unique in the world, tattoos are as varied in style and form as the living bodies they adorn. Under the Skin examines tattoos from three different angles, through the work of more than 37 artists. First the book explores cultural history, including tribal, Japanese and American traditional tattoos. Next is a survey of individuals and their tattoos. What is the inspiration behind each design? What does each tattoo mean to the person who chose it? Third, and finally, Under the Skin catalogs the visual language of tattoos, looking at six major artistic styles ideally suited to human skin.With its combination of detailed photographs of ink on skin and lovingly reproduced flash art, Under the Skin makes an excellent introduction to the history and craft of tattoo, and a worthy addition to any ink aficionado s library.

Drawn from the extensive holdings of the Staatliche Museen in Berlin, this collection of jewellery through the ages links cultures and eras to show how the design, wearing, and collecting of personal adornment has evolved over the ages. They range from classic items such as necklaces, rings and earrings to less common items with origins in non-European cultures. The book features jewellery ranging from the splendid crowns of ancient Greece, gold earrings from Babylon and jewelled collars worn by 13th-century Islamic royalty to more modern pieces such as those contained in the imperial collection of Queen Louise of Prussia, Art Nouveau jewellery designed by Rene Lalique, and work by contemporary designers. This chronologically arranged survey includes numerous brief essays and nearly 400 illustrations with detailed captions, making it an ideal reference for anyone interested in cultural history, the history of jewellery, or the art and craft of jewellery making.

This second volume of Fashion Patternmaking Techniques examines the various procedures for transforming bodices, through dart manipulation as well as studying techniques for creating volumes, draping, and fitted patterns. The book includes techniques for creating patterns for knit fabrics; basic dress blocks and how to adapt these to different fabric patterns and types of garment (for example, maternity dresses); sleeves; basic blocks for men’s vests and jackets; size grading for tops and dresses and the fundamentals of pattern layout. This manual prepares the reader to apply these concepts—along with their own intuition and creativity—to constructing patterns. Antonio Donnanno began his career in his family’s tailoring shop. After majoring in history and philosophy, he focused on teaching costume history and patternmaking techniques. In 1982, he founded the prestigious Euromode School Italia in Bergamo, which soon expanded abroad.

This book explores how Georgia O’Keeffe lived her life steeped in modernism, bringing the same style she developed in her art to her dress, her homes, and her lifestyle. Richly illustrated with images of her art and views of the two homes she designed and furnished in New Mexico, the book also includes never before published photographs of O’Keeffe’s clothes. The author has attributed some of the most exquisite of these garments to O’Keeffe, a skilled seamstress who understood fabric and design, and who has become an icon in today’s fashion world as much for her personal style as for her art. As one of her friends stated, O’Keeffe “never allowed her life to be one thing and her painting another.” This fresh and carefully researched study brings O’Keeffe’s style to life, illuminating how this beloved American artist purposefully proclaimed her modernity in the way she dressed and posed for photographers, from Alfred Stieglitz to Bruce Weber. This beautiful book accompanies the first museum exhibition to bring together photographs, clothes, and art to explore O’Keeffe’s unified modernist aesthetic.
