介绍几本设计、音乐和影像类书籍

一直特别喜欢的idea-mag , 可能是我一直信任它的原因,每年只有4期,可以订购。售价差不多300左右人民币一本,对我来说他和idn类似的刊物永远是来自于两个世界。

How to order这些是官方公布的可以买到的地方,但是北美好像对这本杂志很闭塞,所以我想只能淘宝订购然后寄到家里,或者直接在amazon.jp买,再或者就是自行前往日本。idea是绝对不能错过的期刊,也许它比tdc的年鉴都让我兴奋。

因为idea很着重造型,构造,字体设计以及印刷所以找了一些参考文献:

Eric Gill “An Essay on Typography” [Reprint版]1993. David R Godine Publisher

清水 茂.汉学论集

清水 茂. 1958.韓愈

下面是今年必买的2本书

Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design

Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design is the first book to be dedicated to one of the greatest American designers of the twentieth century.

Produced by Jennifer Bass (Saul’s daughter) and Pat Kirkham, and published by Laurence King.

也就是说你可以在laurenceking轻易的找到,不过相对来说很贵,当然也可以选择在amazon上等货。

今天正好看了这篇关于Saul bass的文章“Saul Bass in Motion Graphic”,更强烈的想拥有这本书。

2个英文小资料:

Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design:before we worked together, he was a legend in my eyes. His designs, for film titles and company logos and record albums and posters, defined an era.”

Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Designby Maria Popova

其实如果不闲麻烦也可以去欧洲的网店买,我今天在Guardian bookshop下单,换算看跟amazon上的价格差不太多。

 

A set of collages made from mainly contemporary sources, which recount episodes in modernist architecture in the twentieth century. This is a story of a fragile and occasionally noble dream, in the context of a history going violently wrong. These images are supplemented by short parallel prose meditations. Wild’s images have a wonderful rightness of form. But they are far from idealized: politically charged, they have a disconcerting sense of erotics and low humour.

-The book reproduces a series of the collages made by David Wild. Their subject is modern architecture in the first half of the twentieth century: in the Netherlands, in Russia, and in the work of Le Corbusier. The method of the book is to show a collage on a right-hand page; then on the facing page is a prose commentary by Wild and supporting smaller images.

这本光看内容就已经忍不住了,所以果断下单。

 

之后就是陆续可能会买的一些书,可能关于影像和音乐类的书籍会多介绍一些。

grid systems

A Visual Communication Manual for graphic designers, typographers and three dimensional designers. Considered by most to be the definitive book on grid systems. From concept to instructional, this book covers typography through grid systems used in design both 2D and 3D.

Amazon上可以买到,我认为设计师都应该有一本关于栅格理论正确的书。

 

Grid Systems: Principles of Organizing Type

This book shows how proportion, symmetry, and other geometrical systems underlie many of the visual relationships that make for good design.

grid system是最基础的知识,也是设计师需要学习的技能,当然也是一种dynamic communication.

amazon上可以买到,价格适中.

 

Active Score Music

The new disc ACTIVE SCORE MUSIC is a combined DVD/CD-ROM which contains complete recordings of two audiovisual concerts performed at the Ars Electronica Festival in September, 2000.

Scribble, by Golan Levin, Scott Gibbons and Greg Shakar, revives and updates a decades-old tradition of kinetic light performance, featuring tightly-coupled sounds and dynamic visuals which are at times carefully scored, and at other times loosely improvised. It is performed on the Audiovisual Environment Suite, a set of five interactive systems which allow people to create and perform abstract animation and synthetic sound, simultaneously, in real time.

可以搜索一下名字,多媒体设计师,VJ,影像,音乐包括灯光工作者都应该留意一下。其中Golan Levin毕业于MIT Media Laboratory.

 

Directors Label Series 1 Box Set

The Directors Label is the premier showcase for the art of the music video. First released in 2003, the series was created by Spike Jonze, Chris Cunningham, and Michel Gondry, the subjects of the first three volumes. Four new volumes were released in 2005, this time featuring Mark Romanek, Jonathan Glazer, Anton Corbijn and Stephane Sednaoui.

这个系列还有一个Directors Label Series 2 Box Set,当然如果你就只是AT爱好者且拥有The Videos 1989-2004,就可以考虑忽略。

我还是定了一套,用来收藏和随时打开闻闻浓重的历史味道。

 

Film Poster of ’50s,’60s,’70s

这个不用过多介绍,第一本那张手的图片一看就知道是最开始提到的Saul Bass。这个系列还有Film Posters: Horror,Film Posters: Exploitation(Sex, drugs, delinquency, Black power, alternative culture and rock and roll)这本里的一些海报收藏于多家影院。这些年人们越来越习惯把复古电影海报当作装饰品,而那些壁画和欧洲古典黄也许已经被收到了某个角落里。

我比较感兴趣这一套的60s’那本,还有另外一个系列是Film Posters: Science Fiction,我会考虑买这本:From “Metropolis” to “Godzilla” and from “Invaders From Mars” to “Star Wars.”

这个系列amazon都有,而且都不贵,不过搜了一下豆瓣上的这个系列读过的人还是偏少。

 

45 RPM

45 RPM is the first ever collection of 7-inch sleeves. Organized chronologically, it juxtaposes more than 200 albums, from all genres of music, chosen for their inventive design. It includes albums by such legendary artists as Paul Anka, the Beatles, the Boston Pops, the Clash, Donovan, Dizzy Gillespie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Dean Martin, Curtis Mayfield, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, the Ramones, REM, the Rolling Stones, the Sex Pistols, Frank Sinatra, Talking Heads, and many others. 。

不多说,适合收藏。Singles, 45s, 7-inchers-they have many names, but come in only one package.

 

Behind The Beat

The revealing photographs found within the pages of Behind the Beat expose the creative spaces of top DJ’s and music producers from the UK and US. This book is an open invitation to step into the private world of the hip hop home studio and discover its inner workings. Featured are the studios and equipment of some of the most influential music creators working today including: DJ Premier, Madlib, J Dilla, DJ Spinna, Skitz, Nextmen, Taskforce, Dj Swamp, E- Swift, Beyond There, Kut masta kurt, Fat jack, Jehst, Beatminerz, DJ Shadow, DJ design, Dan the Automator, Chief Xcel, Young Einstein, Numark, Cut Chemist, Thes One, J Zone and Mario Caldato Jnr. INCLUDES AN AUDIO CD WITH TRACKS FROM FEATURED DJS AND LABELS – MIXED BY DJ RANSOM!

看完介绍也许一些hip-hop爱好者会眼前一亮,这本书的全称是Behind the Beat: Hip Hop Home Studios,书中描述的更多的是这些人真实的生活,你可以看到他们的博物馆式收藏,还有遍布每个角落的设备。

这本书并没有Hiphop Literacies这样的纯学术书籍吸引我,但是我对从曼哈顿驱车前往布鲁克林很向往的。

 

Blue Note:Album Cover Art & Jazz Life

Blue Note也许比起ECM要家喻户晓,这本书看上去很完美。当然,吸引我的是Reid Miles的设计。

这本比起朋友生日送我的几本Blue Note的唱片封面设计书要贵一倍,amazon可以买到,绝对适合收藏。

 

The sights and sounds of American jazz In 1959 and 1960, photographer William Claxton and noted German musicologist Joachim Berendt traveled the United States hot on the trail of jazz music. The result of their collaboration was an amazing collection of photographs and recordings of legendary artists as well as unknown street musicians.

The book Jazzlife, the original fruit of their labors, has become a collector’s item that is highly treasured among jazz and photography fans. In 2003, TASCHEN began reassembling this important collection of material?along with many never-before-seen color images from those trips. They are brought together in this updated volume, which includes a foreword by Claxton tracing his travels with Berendt and his love affair with jazz music in general. Utilizing the benefits of today’s digital technology, a restored audio CD from Joachim Berendt’s original recordings has been produced and is included in this package. Jazz fans will be delighted to be able to take a jazz-trip through time, both seeing and hearing the music as Claxton and Berendt originally experienced it.

也许这本书可以勾起热爱’50s的爵士爱好者,700多页历史的厚重感,信息量很大。脑海里突然浮现了一些名字:Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Muddy Waters, Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz, Miles Davis,Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane…….

amazon上可以购买,价格贼贵。

 

Cocinando

Driving beats, coursing rhythms, swaying skirts, and swaggering bandleaders playing deep into the sultry night: Latin music is a celebration of life and sensuality, and nowhere are these essential values better reflected than the dazzling record covers that present this music to the world.

下面那张图是我特别喜欢的一张唱片,Nuyorican Soul是Kenny Dope和音乐世家Louie Vega的化身。这本书我已经买了,后来看到原名是Cocinando!: Fifty Years of Latin Album Cover Art,所以看到一些熟悉的封面想到的必然是house音乐和拉丁音乐的渊源。

这绝对是一本好书,amazon可以买到,不贵。

 

Disc Style

一本关于电子音乐,俱乐部文化的书。Founder of the Designers Republic, one of the most influential graphics studios of the ’90s.

 

Carsten Nicolai: Auto Pilot

Berlin-based artist Carsten Nicolai (1965-) concocts minimalist, microscopic and nevertheless complex views of creative processes at the interface of science, art and music.

Carsten Nicolai/alva noto这几年频繁出书,另外3本Moire index,grid index还有cyclo.id应该也都是必看的。书籍奘帧完美,很荣幸几年前就亲手接过了Raster-Noton老板的名片。

Nicolai is a master of the focused tightrope walk.

推荐给Noto的粉丝,Gestalten有售。

 

Heavy Metal Thunder

Revile it if you will, laugh it off – but heavy metal’s influence and audience just keep on growing. And nowhere is its brash outrageousness better expressed than on its album covers.

其实对metal音乐几乎一无所知,plenty of skulls是唯一的想象。

amazon上卖的很便宜,也许金属爱好者应该留意一下。
