Dali and the Path of Dreams catalog

Once upon a time there was a little boy whose name was Salvador, though everyone called him Salvi. What Salvi liked most of all was to run barefoot along the beach with his hoop. One afternoon, as he was playing in the waves, he noticed something gleaming under the water. Looking closer, he saw it was a key that the sea had left there. Without thinking twice, Salvi popped it in his pocket. Then, wondering what the key might be for, Salvi hopped up on to his long-legged elephant and let his imagination lead the way. This charming new story takes Salvador Dali's most famous motifs, including melting clocks, long-legged elephants and magical chests of drawers, and weaves them into a fantastical story introducing the work of the artist to the youngest child.

Masters of American Comics catalog

Comic strips and comic books were among the most popular and influential forms of mass media in 20thcentury America. This fascinating book focuses on fifteen pioneering cartoonists?ranging from Winsor McCay to Chris Ware?who brought this genre to the highest level of artistic expression and who had the greatest impact on the development of the form. Organized chronologically, Masters of American Comics explores the rise of newspaper comic strips and comic books and considers their artistic development throughout the century. Presenting a wide selection of original drawings as well as progressive proofs, vintage printed Sunday pages, and comic books themselves, the authors also look at how the art of comics was transformed by artistic innovation as well as by changes in popular taste, economics, and printing conventions. First appearing in newspaper Sunday supplements, the comic strip became immediately successful and created the largest audience of any medium of its time. The comic book first began as a way to print existing newspaper comics, then subsequently established the mass popularity of superheroes in the 1940s and 1950s before it matured as a vehicle for independent personal expression in the underground comic books and graphic novels of the 1960s. Included in the book are insightful and entertaining essays on individual artists written by major figures in the fields of comics, narrative illustration, literature, popular culture, and art history. Masters of American Comics convincingly positions the genre of comics into the history of art and is destined to become a classic text for years to come.

Powell, Eric. The Goon: Chinatown and the mystery of Mr. Wicker. Milwaukie, OR: Dark Horse, 2007.

The Goon catalog

Dark Horse is very proud to present the first original graphic novel from Eisner Award-winning creator Eric Powell. Powell has been sowing the seeds of Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker for years in his bimonthly series The Goon, and salivating fans may now feast their eyes on the Goon's formative backstory of love, loss, and extortion - a lengthy tale that demanded to be told in this uninterrupted format. Spiritual leader of Tennessee and hero to the Great Unwashed, Powell escaped catastrophic death and mother-shaming scandal to bring this work to fruition. He's a sensitive man in insensitive times. But be warned: This book ain't funny.
