For many years the magnificent color prints published by the firm of Rudolf Ackermann during the 19th century have been in the possession of lucky collectors. However, with the passing of many years these frail works of art have become damaged, or have perished, so that many are not available to those who wish to find and appreciate the work and care which went into these productions.

Needlework Patterns in the Era of Jane Austen:

What would Jane Austen have stitched, while seated in her drawing room and waiting for callers? Needlework Patterns in the Era of Jane Austen is a comprehensive source for all the needlepoint patterns published in one of the most influential periodicals of Austen’s lifetime – Ackermann's Repository of Arts. In drawing up this little book, we understand in this modern age to many women do not have the same leisure time to produce attractive pieces of needlework as the daughters of dukes did yesteryear. However, there may be just a few readers interested in these patterns…collected from thousands of pages and gathered in this one book. There are no technical directions that would enable a beginning needlewoman to teach herself this art but just a pictorial of needlepoint designs. They were originally published as black and white images so they are in this book in black and white. Experienced needlepoint and embroidery enthusiasts, creative crafters, and researchers will all treasure these authentic examples of fashionable needlepoint patterns in the era of Jane Austen. Needlework Patterns in the Era of Jane Austen covers twelve years of fashion embroidery designs in the Georgian and Regency periods (1809-1820). * This book is best viewed in the Kindle version unless you trul...

Agnes Martin

Agnes

The critically acclaimed, indispensible illustrated monograph on Agnes Martin, published to accompany the major retrospective exhibition organized by the Tate and on view in 2016 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the GuggenheimThis groundbreaking survey provides an in-depth account of Martin's artistic career, from lesser-known early experimental works through her striped and gridded grey paintings and use of color in various formats, to a group of her final pieces that reintroduce bold forms. A selection of drawings and watercolors and Martin's own writing are also included. Edited by the exhibitions's co-curators Frances Morris and Tiffany Bell, and with essays by leading scholars that give a context for Martin's work―her life, relationship with other artists, the influence of South-Asian philosophy―alongside focused shorter pieces on particular paintings, this beautifully designed volume is the definitive publication on her oeuvre. Frances Morris places Martin's work in the art historical context of the time; art historian Richard Tobin analyzes Martin’s painting "The Islands"; conservator Rachel Barker offers the reader a close viewing of "Morning"; curator Lena Fritsch provides a visual biography by comparing photographic portraits of Martin from different p...

How Do You Spell Ruzevelt?: A History of Spelling in America Today and Yesterday

How Do You Spell Ruzevelt?: A History of

Much was at stake in early America as its people struggled to use an evolving language to meet the challenge of new political, economic, and social arrangements. It should come as no surprise, then, that language - in both its spoken and written forms - is fundamentally entwined in national and personal identity. Publishers, politicians, dreamers, schemers, and reformers understood its importance early on, and they sought to bend language to their will. While some think spelling is no longer relevant because of spell check, the author - who grew up participating in spelling bees - disagrees. She explores the rich history of language and spelling, and answers questions such as: Which founding father proposed eliminating the letters J and C from the alphabet? Who spells better: boys or girls? Who won the first national spelling bee? The author also explores her own love and difficulties with spelling, including the mistake that bounced her out of the 1961 National Spelling Bee. Whether you're a historian, educator, student or simply someone passionate about the written word, you'll be delighted by the fun-filled facts and answers to obscure questions in How Do You Spell Ruzevelt?
