Black & Grey Tattoo - 3 Book Set

Black & Grey Tattoo - 3 Book Set

Code: B47

BLACK & GREY TATTOO 1-3 is a mammoth work. Comprising over a thousand pages and weighing 10kg (22 lbs), it is one of the largest – if not the largest – tattoo book ever published! Its three large-format volumes are contained inside a lavish and sturdy hardcover box. "BLACK & GREY TATTOO explores a monochrome art form through a kaleidoscope of the most widely diverse interpretations and craftsmanly techniques, performed by tattoo artists from all parts of the world."

This tattoo tome explores the origins of black & grey tattooing — from the prisons and streets of LA to its contemporary resonance on Hollywood’s red carpets, at heavy metal music fests, and in private ateliers from Budapest to Beijing. While rendered in just shades of grade, the spectrum of design is vast: Aztec warriors, fierce harpies, family portraits, religious icons and permanent shrines to celebrities adorn these pages. The common thread among them all is their inventive exposition and mastery of execution.

Black & Grey Tattoo is divided into three parts: Traditional Black & Grey, Dark/Horror, and Photorealism. Indeed, there’s cross-pollination among the different styles, but the breakdown isn’t just for easier lifting of this monster collection. It is to show how tattoos with similar stylistic elements are interpreted differently by stellar artists around the world. The book also presents the fine art — including paintings and charcoals — of many of those featured, although the tattoos themselves should be considered fine art.

Mammoth 3 volume: Large-format hardcover books, 24.5 x 31.5 cm, covers with silver embossing, total of 1008 pages.

(BLACK & GREY TATTOO 1 – Traditional; 336 pages)
(BLACK & GREY TATTOO 2 – Dark/Horror; 400 pages)
(BLACK & GREY TATTOO 3 – Photorealism; 272 pages)

More than 860 full-color photographs, This 10 kg (22lb) heavyweight, comes in a sturdy high-quality hardcover box inside a carrier case, Texts in German, English & Spanish.

What Journalists Say
SKIN DEEP (United Kingdom)
”Frankly, this is the motherlode of all tattoo art books. There will be no discussion on this – ever. One volume alone is enough to wipe-out a good few hours of your life – three is incredible. In total, it clocks in at over 1000 pages and weights more than a medium sized dog complete with slip-case.”

Chinese Tattoo Art

Chinese Tattoo Art

Code: B54

Tradition and Modern Styles

"Chinese Tattoo Art” is the world’s first comprehensive documentation of the art of tattooing in China and Taiwan. Its fascinating images exemplify the artful diversity of Chinese tattooing and its common motifs, which are largely inspired by ancient myths and legends. The meanings behind many of these motifs are explored in an illustrated chapter that delves into their symbolism, history and mythology. Chinese tattoo artists have outstandingly developed their own unique style and expression. Many of the tattooists presented in the book are also gifted draftsmen: their dynamic sketches of dragons, tigers, lotus blossoms, serpents, demons and so much more are inspiring.

The Chinese culture favors bright, vibrant, cheerful colors. This is also reflected in the masterful artworks by these tattooists. The preference for particular colors in China gives these creations their own special appeal. But Oriental tattooists are also masters of the “black and grey” style, which is often used in China, as it is in the West, for sinister visions of horror motifs as well as portraits. “Chinese Tattoo Art” is a weighty volume offering a grand overview and profound insight into tattooing in China and Taiwan, enabling professional tattooists around the world to expand their knowledge and spectrums of motifs, and inspiring future tattoos of collectors.

Authors: Fino Huang and Roxanne Yang

Conserving

Conserving

Code: B82

Life and death are the themes which have always exerted an incredible fascination on human beings. The trilogy entitled “Conserving” — which includes “Conserving Fish,” “Conserving Animals” and “Conserving Humans” — is a sensitive confrontation with a part of our life that is frequently repressed or tabooed.

Daniel and Geo Fuchs pursue exiting new paths in this photographic work. Their virtuosic use of lighting enables them to breathe new life into specimens, some of which have been conserved in alcohol or formaldehyde for as much as 300 years.

The appeal of their photographs derives from the breathtaking beauty of the colors and structures and from a magical expressiveness which invites the viewer to enter hitherto unknown worlds. The images, which recall the enigmatic paintings of Hieronymus Bosch, simultaneously become icons and venerable, reverential objects.

For the first time ever, these artistic photographs depict specimens from natural history museums and anatomical collections, many of which have never before been on public display. Daniel and Geo Fuchs rank among the newly discovered stars in the world of contemporary photography. In recent years, they have won international accolades for their projects and exhibitions. The photos in their “Conserving” trilogy are scheduled to be shown at numerous international exhibitions.

The book of photographs entitled “Conserving” was printed in uniquely high quality, using the new, six-color “hexachrome” colorprinting process. The photos are especially impressive thanks to the unprecedented brillance of the colors and the extreme depth of field, which conveys a startingly three-dimensional impression. Aesthetic design and top-quality craftsmanship make this largeformat art-photo volume into a visual masterpiece. In “Conserving,” the internationally famed photographers Daniel and Geo Fuchs have successfully translated a fascinating theme into a major document in the field of contemporary photography.

Dimensions 24,5 x 31,5 cm, 240 pages, 180 color photographs printed in six-color (hexachrome) process,hardcover, thread bound, six-color dust jacket.
