|Abstract||"The human body is a handy tool for promoting and propagandizing various things. Nudity can be matter-of-fact, which is the way it has appeared in European design and advertising for ages--or jarring and laden with mystique as it is in the United States." -- [p. 4 cover]|
|Abstract||"This groundbreaking volume investigates and illuminates a new generation of artists and the ways that they relate to one of art history's most storied traditions: nude figure drawing and painting. This informative (and occasionally very cheeky) book demonstrates the ways in which new mediums and new technologies are pushing graphic designers to previously untold heights of artistic representation, thereby cementing the graphic designer's place alongside more traditional mediums (drawing, painting) in art history and criticism. From PETA's infamous "I'd Rather Go Nude" ad campaign, to John Lennon and Yoko Ono posing nude on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, Head to Toe features myriad examples of the nude figure and how it is altered and manipulated in the service of both art and commerce"--Publisher's description.|
