Vanishing Vancouver, Kluckner, Michael
44 Kluckner, Michael Vanishing Vancouver
North Vancouver, BC Whitecap Books 1990 1895099242 / 9781895099249 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Illustrated by Author 
Only slight wear to book and dust jacket ; Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. A bright, solid book in near-fine condition.; Watercolor paintings; 12.90 X 9.60 X 1 inches; 208 pages; "Vanishing Vancouver is an extraordinary collection of watercolours painted in the late 1980s, many of downtown buildings and houses that have since been demolished, and others that are doomed by the changing nature and growth of the city." Award-winning author and artist Michael Kluckner takes another look at a city where the only thing that doesn't seem to change is the rapid pace of development. Vanishing Vancouver explores the origins of our landmark buildings and public spaces, working harbour, shops, houses, apartments, urban farms and gardens, and bears witness to the recent dramatic changes that have taken place in them. Many of these changes are the result of city planning policy-initiatives that aim for eco-density and being the greenest city-and throughout the book Kluckner discusses the tensions that have arisen as a result and asks whether the price we are paying is too high. Vanishing Vancouver: The Last 20 Years is a compelling mix of historical narrative, personal anecdote and expert, local knowledge. Illustrated with more than 200 new images-the author's own watercolours and brush-and-ink drawings, as well as archival and private photographs, hand-rendered maps and vintage postcards, advertisements and other ephemera-this beautiful volume is essential and enjoyable reading for anyone interested in Vancouver's heritage, architecture and history.

London Phaidon Press 2003 0714843229 / 9780714843223 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good- dust jacket 
Heavy opaque mylar has short tears head and tail of spine, book shows only slight wear. ; A bright, solid book, Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. Titles in green on dust jacket, images on front and back boards. ; B&W Illustrations; 9 X 6.42 X 1.24 inches; 240 pages; "In late 1964 Andy Warhol commissioned young fashion photographer David McCabe to document his daily activities for one year. During the course of this project, whenever the artist called McCabe would come to meet him at The Factory, an opening, a party, a coffeeshop or any place where Warhol would decide that he wanted to be accompanied by the photographer and his camera. In the end, these images were never published, perhaps because they revealed more than the increasingly-famous Warhol was willing to share with the public. Hidden away for almost 40 years, the significant majority of these 400 duotone photos are now presented together for the first time to fulfill their original intention in an astounding tour de force of dynamic and often poignant realism: A Year in the Life of Andy Warhol. These images not only represent unique documentation of one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century, but also provide a rare behind-the-scenes look at the New York art world at a time when Pop art was at its peak. McCabe's photographs are accompanied by the entertaining descriptions and reminiscences of Factory insider David Dalton, one of Warhol's first assistants."

DJ is bright and crisp, enclosed in mylar protector.; B&W Illustrations; 9.58 X 6.54 X 1.72 inches; 482 pages; "'Insights of Genius' shows how seeing is central to the greatest advances of the human intellect. Artists and scientists alike rely on visual representations of worlds both visible and invisible. 'Insights of Genius', first published by Copernicus in 1996, explores the creative leaps that led some of the greatest scientists and artists to dramatically transform how we understand nature. The scope of figures runs from Galileo and da Vinci to Einstein and Picasso. Focusing on the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the age of modern art and modern physics, the book travels through the philosophy of mind and language, cognitive science, neurophysiology, and art history. Insights of Genius discusses intuition, aesthetics, realism, representation, metaphors, and visual imagery. Allied to these concepts are causality, relativity, energy conservation, entropy, the correspondence principle, scientific creativity, and Cubism. Running through the book is the idea that science extends our intuition from common sense to an understanding of a world beyond our perception."
