"Using handmade holiday cards by American artists from the Smithsonian's Archives of American Art, Season's Greetings shows how artists imagined the holidays through original watercolors, etchings, silk-screen prints, and drawings. Rarely seen beyond the eyes of their recipients, these cards confirm the irrepressible artistry of their senders and offer personal insight into the style and sentiment of artists, including how they summed up the year's events in their own lives and the world in which they lived. The cards add an intimate dimension to an artist's social network, illuminating their relationships with dealers, curators, teachers, and close friends"--

There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our visual landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. In 2010 filmmakers Faythe Levine, coauthor of Handmade Nation, and Sam Macon began documenting these dedicated practitioners, their time-honored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. Sign Painters, the first anecdotal history of the craft, features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States. With a foreword by legendary artist (and former sign painter) Ed Ruscha, this vibrant book profiles sign painters young and old, from the new vanguard working solo to collaborative shops such as San Francisco s New Bohemia Signs and New York s Colossal Media s Sky High Murals.

"Before the passage of critical preservation legislation in 1978, the Nation's Capital lost an irreplaceable assembly of architecturally and culturally significant buildings. Wanton destruction in the name of progress - particularly in the decades immediately following World War II - resulted in a legacy forever lost, a cultural heritage destroyed by the wrecker's ball." "In originally documenting 252 of these historic losses, the publication of Capital Losses a quarter century ago created a clarion call for preservationists. By reminding us of things lost, James Goode's magisterial and poignant study represented a comprehensive call for action, a mandate for responsible stewardship of the architectural legacy of Washington, D.C. In the decades since, rising public awareness and the passage of the Historic District and Historic Landmark Protection Act in 1978 have slowed the pace of thoughtless destruction. But as this completely new and updated edition of Capital Losses demonstrates, vigilance remains the watchword, especially as pressures for urban growth continue to intensify." "Capital Losses reveals the Washington that was and how it became what it is today. This updated edition includes eighteen more treasures lost - among them Rhodes Tavern and Valley View - and ninety additional historic photographs. The 270 buildings featured here range from the earliest Georgian plantation house to the latest art deco commercial structure and include private houses, hotels, apartment houses, office and government buildings, schools, hospitals, churches, and fire stations." "Both the familiar public Washington of official landmarks and the private city of residential neighborhoods are paid tribute in this volume, dedicated to the vanished. A foreword by noted architectural historian Richard Longstreth brings the preservation story up to the present."--BOOK JACKET. Book jacket.
