Paper is one of the most heavily used and ubiquitous products in the world. It is one of the first raw materials most artists encounter, and one of the most versatile products for creatives at any skill level. Paper Secret 1 reveals this world of paper-based art with a multitude of projects cut, curled, stacked, cast, folded, pulped and slotted together with exceptional results. Laser-cut with all the delicate flourishes of lace, folded into stunning fashion pieces, carved from books, or manipulated into surprisingly strong installations, the projects within demonstrate paper's infinitely diverse applications in crafts, high art, fashion, graphic design, and branding

It is easy to see why brands often turn to depictions of animals in their identity materials. A brand can turn to the figure of an animal to evoke freedom, pride, or power, or just as easily associate themselves with loyalty, reliability, or playfulness. Restaurants may use them to artistically touch on the contents of their menu or their particular ideology; corporations to distinguish themselves in a world of plain symbols and vector art. Animal Graphics explores the wide range of possibilities with animal imagery, capturing these wild designs in their native habitats of artwork, publications, and personal and corporate branding and identities.

It is a difficult brief to create a design utilizing only a single color, one that relies heavily on a designers skill at composition and use of materials and special effects. While some leap at the challenge to create a noteworthy impact with the least amount of noise, relying on the basics of good design to complement the color choice, others face budgetary constraints and must elicit the best possible outcome from limited resources. For some this is achieved by creative use of negative space, for others through the transformation of graphics, logos and type through printing processes such as: debossing/embossing, foil stamping and spot varnishing. This latest volume in the bestselling Palette series from Victionary exhibits the most striking examples of recent years.

Simultaneously frightening and familiar, the image of the skull is the closest thinghuman civilization has ever seen to a universal aesthetic totem. Although the power of its iconic form originates from its association with death, it has come to represent so much more. Skullture takes a comprehensive approach while examining this phenomenon, taking into account both visual and conceptual considerations of the skull throughout history. The book explores the connections of Aztec religious iconography to Damien Hirst and the Ramones to Eighteenth Century funerary practices without ever losing sight of the fact, that while fashion changes, the visual staying power of the human skull carries on. Skullture presents different aesthetic uses of the skull as well as its various cultural resonances through myriad disciplines of art design and fashion. The list of more than 70 contributors includes; Emilio Garcia, Lucy Hardie, Haroshi, Dionne Marshall, Alexandre Orion, Jim Skull, Ian Strange, Didier Ra, Vhils and Yohji Yamamoto.

Every cat thinks it is the master of the universe, and that is precisely what makes them so endearing to many people. They skillfully wrap us around their little paws as they brush against our legs, telling us to please hurry up and fill up their food bowls. They sprawl across our computer keyboards, purring loudly while we try to finish that important letter to the IRS. Whom else would we forgive for artfully shredding our expensive designer sofa, refusing to sleep anywhere but the head of the bed, and decimating the backyard bird population? A proper cat has its (human) can opener firmly under control, generally ignoring that human’s wants and needs, but suddenly shows how cuddly and loving it can be when Mom or Dad is home sick or needs some comfort after a bad day. The bond between a cat lover and his or her four-legged individualist is special and unbreakable, lasting a lifetime. This beautifully-illustrated volume is a love letter to the housecat who so enriches our lives. Take a look at the complex soul of a cat, with so many human qualities, and get ready to learn, laugh, love, and cry, because cats are so much more than just pets—they are family members and lifelong companions.
