1 The Art of Ivan Gantschev: the Sun, the Moon, and Other Things
1558582312 / 9781558582316; Gantschev's beautiful, sometimes abstract artwork is featured here along with a small note of the medium (s) used. Often paints are done in water color, often colored pencil is added. "The world is wonderful and I want to paint it again and again. We walk through this world with our three-dimensional faculty of thought. Some say that there is a fourth dimension. Is it possible to make the invisible visible by painting the visible, concrete things? Is that the fourth dimension or is that art?" About half of the illustrations were done for books, and as such are particularly inventive. The binding is heavy cardboard using the rippled portion. There is a cut-out in this where part of a painting on heavy cardboard shows through. This cover is covered with a heavy clear cover, which has a tiny dent in it at the top, and some rubbing on the back. This book is one that is pleasant to page through, the paintings are beautiful and some have surprise elements that are also attractive. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall

2 Ambesi, Alberto Cesare Oceanic Art
0600367029 / 9780600367024; From the time of the first Pacific explorers, the Western World has been fascinated by the romance of the South Seas. The natives of this earthly paradise inhabit a world of surprising complexity. Their lives are bounded by myths and legends which vary from area to area but are intimately dependent on the power of supernatural forces. This book is the key to this enthralling world where a prow ornament becomes the guardian spirit of a ship, a statuette becomes an ever-watchful ancestor and a painted mask becomes the temporary residence of a god. 159 pages, including 71 full color plates that depict the drama and mystery which are the essentials of Oceanic art. The heavy paper is glossy and the plates are bright. The binding has yellowed a bit on the edges. The binding has a tiny tear on the left front bottom near the spine. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

4 Lash, John The Hero: Manhood and Power
0500810478 / 9780500810477; Out of the darkness, out of the primeval forest, comes the hero who will save the world. He is the protector, the man of invincible might. The greatest names in history and mythology of all races are those of heroes - Herakles and Samson, Perseus and St. George - who fought with monsters to rescue the eternal Woman, the princess, the anima. But the nature of these monsters changed. First, the quest turned inward, taking love, intimacy, and moral self-improvement as its aims. Eventually, it moved outward again, shifting towards the far horizons of territorial expansion and intellectual invention. In this wide-ranging and deeply meditated book, John Lash brings the values of epic and myth to bear upon the cult of the hero, which, rightfully used, has led to the highest that a culture can conceive. Misused, it has led to tyranny, violence, and death. Includes further reading. 132 illustrations, 16 in full color. ; 4to - over 9 3/4 - 12" wide
