Johann Philipp Ferdinand Preiss (1892-1943), based in Berlin, was the most prolific sculptor of the Art Deco period in Germany. He combined ivory, bronze, onyx and marble to create the most dazzling sculptures of his day, accurately reflecting his times. No one in his period surpassed him in the art of ivory carving. This book, the only work devoted entirely to this subject, follows the development of ivory carving in Germany, which was concentrated in Erbach. It is a comprehensive look at the life and work of its most talented and prestigious offspring, the most important Art Deco sculptor in Germany in between the wars. The political climate in which he and other artists had to live during this period in Germany, its difficulties, constraints and influences on their work is also explored. Research into Nazi archives, interviews with family members, recently unearthed documents and the most comprehensive collection of colour illustrations of his oeuvre make the artist come alive.

Roy Lichtenstein's merging of high art and popular imagery has made him one of contemporary art's most challenging figures. This new addition to the MoMA Artist Series features nine paintings and a sculpture from The Museum of Modern Art's substantial collection of his work. His well-known paintings Girl with Ball and Drowning Girl are here, among others based on comic books and advertisements. A selection of later works highlights his engagement with high-art styles and with the work of other artists, always in his signature color palette, black linework, and faux half-tone dots. A lively essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculture at MoMA, accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art and in Lichtenstien's own life.

"ninety percent of who you are is invisible." Amedeo Kaplan seems just like any other new kid who has moved into the town of St. Malo, Florida, a navy town where new faces are the norm. But Amedeo has a secret, a dream: More than anything in the world, he wants to discover something -- a place, a process, even a fossil -- some treasure that no one realizes is there until he finds it. And he would also like to discover a true friend to share these things with. William Wilcox seems like an unlikely candidate for friendship: an aloof boy who is all edges and who owns silence the way other people own words. When Amedeo and William find themselves working together on a house sale for Amedeo's eccentric neighbor, Mrs. Zender, Amedeo has an inkling that both his wishes may come true. For Mrs. Zender's mansion is crammed with memorabilia of her long life, and there is a story to go with every piece. Soon the boys find themselves caught up in one particular story -- a story that links a sketch, a young boy's life, an old man's reminiscence, and a painful secret dating back to the outrages of Nazi Germany. It's a story that will take them to the edge of what they know about heroism and the mystery of the human heart. Two-time Newbery winner E. L. Konigsburg spins a magnificent tale of art, discovery, friendship, history, and truth.
