Anime Through the Looking Glass

Anime Through the Looking Glass

$39.99
More Info
The magic and mastery of anime springs to life in this gorgeous celebration of the genre that features more than 150 full-color frames.

ANIME GOES TO WAR: A powerful narrative engine, such as Kaneda's red motorcycle in Katsuhiro Ôtomo's Akira, war is the beating heart of anime, its shadow hovering over various genres.

HUMAN, ALL TOO HUMAN?: Man versus machine. Exploring new dialectics of body and mind through films like Rintaro's Galaxy Express 999 and Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: On the other side of the mirror, we discover wonderful worlds in dreamlike colors populated with protective spirits, fantastic creatures and humans that save the world like the messianic girl in Hayao Miyazaki's Nausicaä to the Space Pirate Captain Harlock

LIFE NOW: Exhibiting the metamorphosis of society and lifestyles, with scenes from family life to the schoolyard to the company, anime also sketches the human tragic-comedy with great acuity like Makoto Shinkai's Your Name.

This uniquely powerful form of artistic expression has embraced complex and provocative ideas since its inception in the mid twentieth century.

This dynamic and wide-ranging book explores eighty key themes of the genre, from wars to natural disasters, nature to ecology, childhood to magic, dystopias to fables. It looks at more than one hundred masterpieces of Japanese animation, including Akira, Ghost in the Shell, One Piece, Princess Mononoke, Grave of the Fireflies and Howl's Moving Castle, to show how practitioners consistently balance tradition with modernity and how anime's distinct style has influenced other forms of media such as video games, comic books and live-action films.

Covering an enormous range of talent--from Isao Takahata, Katsuhiro Ôtomo, and Makoto Shinkai to Studio Ghibli and Mamoru Oshii--it demonstrates how anime makes room for limitless creativity. Unfettered by the physical constraints of nature's laws, these artists realize our deepest emotions and our wildest dreams.

    Feel Something, Make Something: A Guide to Collaborating with Your Emotions

    Feel Something, Make Something: A Guide to Collaborating with Your Emotions

    $15.99
    More Info
    An intimate, quietly revolutionary guide to using art to process, understand, and collaborate with your feelings, from the co-author of My Body, My Home.

    Understanding our emotions is a lifelong process. Many of us were taught to avoid, suppress, or run away from intense feelings like grief, anger, and sadness. What if, instead of hiding from your emotions, you collaborated with them?

    Feel Something, Make Something is a guide to experimental, creative self-expression and reflection. Caitlin Metz believes that making art--whether it's a detailed scribble on a crumpled receipt or a 100-day series of photos--gives your feelings a physical form and provides space to observe them from a distance. To help kickstart your creative process, Metz offers tutorials on zine-making (complete with a pull-out DIY zine to keep in your wallet), drawing, bodymapping, mindmapping, self-portraiture, and writing personal manifestos.

    This act of creation can be a form of release, documentation, ritual, conversation, or disruption. You may choose to sustain your feeling, to channel it into your work, or to shift it completely. To feel something and make something is both an invitation to take a breath and an opportunity to shift your perspective.

    Feel Something, Make Something is not about making perfectly polished works of art. The outcome of your art-making is arbitrary. The process is the work.
