Reflections On A Sofa-Bed : Functional Beauty And Looking Fit, Rafael De Clercq Jan 2010

Reflections On A Sofa-Bed : Functional Beauty And Looking Fit, Rafael De Clercq

Prof. DE CLERCQ Rafael

This paper argues for two conclusions about functional beauty, as this notion has been understood by Parsons and Carlson in a recent book by the same name. First of all, it is argued that functional beauty either is not a distinct kind of beauty or that the members of this kind are not all and only instances of the property of looking fit.

"A Defect In Their Education": Blake, Haydon, And The Misguided British Audience.Pdf, Stephen C. Behrendt Dec 2009

"A Defect In Their Education": Blake, Haydon, And The Misguided British Audience.Pdf, Stephen C. Behrendt

Stephen C Behrendt

This essay examines the attitudes of William Blake and Benjamin Robert Haydon to the subject of grand-style history painting and traces their frustrations with an English viewing audience whose tastes both artists considered to be misguided, unimaginative, and generally hostile to the "highest" forms of visual art.

Where Book Art And Technology Mingle, Peter D. Verheyen, Richard Minsky Dec 2009

Where Book Art And Technology Mingle, Peter D. Verheyen, Richard Minsky

Peter D Verheyen

Interview of Peter D. Verheyen by Richard Minsky. Peter Verheyen, conservator, bookbinder, and creator of the Books Arts Web, discusses the current state of book arts. Although he creates impeccable fine bindings that have won international awards, Peter Verheyen's huge contribution to the field of book art has little to do with making or conserving physical books. His magum opus is the Book Arts Web (philobiblon.com), the main location on the Internet for book art information and resources, from online exhibitions to tutorials, opportunities, blogs, and reference materials.
