The Secret History of Marvel Comics

Jack Kirby and the Moonlighting Artists at Martin Goodman's Empire

The Secret History of Marvel Comics digs back to the 1930s when Marvel Comics wasn't just a comic-book producing company. Marvel Comics owner Martin Goodman had tentacles into a publishing world that might have made that era’s conservative American parents lynch him on his front porch. Marvel was but a small part of Goodman’s publishing empire, which had begun years before he published his first comic book. Goodman mostly published lurid and sensationalistic story books (known as “pulps”) and magazines, featuring sexually-charged detective and romance short fiction, and celebrity gossip scandal sheets. And artists like Jack Kirby, who was producing Captain America for eight-year-olds, were simultaneously dipping their toes in both ponds. The Secret History of Marvel Comics tells this parallel story of 1930s/40s Marvel Comics sharing offices with those Goodman publications not quite fit for children. The book also features a comprehensive display of the artwork produced for Goodman’s other enterprises by Marvel Comics artists such as Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, Alex Schomburg, Bill Everett, Al Jaffee, and Dan DeCarlo, plus the very best pulp artists in the field, including Norman Saunders, John Walter Scott, Hans Wesso, L.F. Bjorklund, and Marvel Comics #1 cover artist Frank R. Paul. Goodman’s magazines also featured cover stories on celebrities such as Jackie Gleason, Elizabeth Taylor, Liberace, and Sophia Loren, as well as contributions from famous literary and social figures such as Isaac Asimov, Theodore Sturgeon, and L. Ron Hubbard.

Critical Fashion Practice

From Westwood to Van Beirendonck

Author: Adam Geczy,Vicki Karaminas

There is a new form of design practice within the contemporary fashion industry which is active in complex forms of social commentary and critique. While fashion in the modernist era has shown signs of criticism and subversion, these were either in the form of subcultures or perversions, such as punk or BDSM styling. Today, however, these genres have been absorbed into the fashion industry itself, meaning that "critical fashion†? is now far from limited to the subcultures from which it came. This book explores this new space for criticism within the popular fashion sphere to demonstrate how designers are disrupting conventions, challenging beliefs and stirring change from within the system itself. Critical Fashion Practice considers a range of contemporary designers across the globe, from the US to Japan, whose conceptual designs embody this critical language, including case studies such as Rei Kawakubo's deconstructive silhouettes for Comme des Garçons and Walter Van Beirendonck's sadomasochistic menswear collections, amongst other key players such as Miuccia Prada, Vivienne Westwood and Viktor & Rolf. Arguing that the rise of critical fashion coincides with a noticeable decline in the criticality of art, Geczy and Karaminas go beyond slotting fashion into previously established art theories. Conceiving a new cultural role for fashion that affords insight into identity, class, race, sexuality and gender, this book shows how fashion can not only reflect and comment on, but can also be a part of social change.

"Die vier apokalyptischen Reiter" – so bezeichnet Marketing-Guru Galloway Amazon, Apple, Facebook und Google. Diese Tech-Giganten haben nicht nur neue Geschäftsmodelle entwickelt. Sie haben die Regeln des Wirtschaftslebens und die Voraussetzungen für Erfolg neu definiert. In dem respektlosen Stil, der Galloway zu einem der gefeiertsten Wirtschaftsprofessoren der Welt gemacht hat, zerlegt er die Strategien der Vier. Er führt vor, wie sie unsere grundlegenden emotionalen Bedürfnisse mit einer Schnelligkeit und in einem Ausmaß manipulieren, an die andere nicht herankommen. Und er zeigt, wie man die Lehren aus ihrem Aufstieg auf sein eigenes Unternehmen oder seinen eigenen Job anwenden kann. Ob man mit ihnen konkurrieren will, mit ihnen Geschäfte machen oder einfach in der Welt leben will, die von ihnen beherrscht wird – man muss die Vier verstehen.

David Graeber, der bedeutendste Anthropologe unserer Zeit, entfaltet eine fulminante und längst überfällige Fundamentalkritik der globalen Bürokratie! Er erforscht die Ursprünge unserer Sehnsucht nach Regularien und entlarvt ihre Bedeutung als Mittel zur Ausübung von Gewalt. Wir alle hassen Bürokraten. Wir können es nicht fassen, dass wir einen Großteil unserer Lebenszeit damit verbringen müssen, Formulare auszufüllen. Doch zugleich nährt der Glaube an die Bürokratie unsere Hoffnung auf Effizienz, Transparenz und Gerechtigkeit. Gerade im digitalen Zeitalter wächst die Sehnsucht nach Ordnung und im gleichen Maße nimmt die Macht der Bürokratien über jeden Einzelnen von uns zu. Dabei machen sie unsere Gesellschaften keineswegs transparent und effizient, sondern dienen mittlerweile elitären Gruppeninteressen. Denn Kapitalismus und Bürokratie sind einen verhängnisvollen Pakt eingegangen und könnten die Welt in den Abgrund reißen.

Tempo, Jazz, Marihuana, Sex und Freiheit waren die Zauberwörter der Beat Generation, die ständig auf der Suche nach einem intensiven, rauscherfüllten Dasein war. Ihre Trampfahrten durch die ungeheuren Weiten des Landes ließen sie ein Amerika entdecken, das die bürgerliche Erfolgsmoral nicht kannte.

Charles Guyette

Godfather of American Fetish Art Expanded Photo Edition Vintage Fetish History, Irving Klaw, John Willie, Bettie Page

Charles Guyette, the "G-string King," referenced in the film of Wonder Woman''s creator, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, and costumer to Bettie Page, was the first person to produce and distribute fetish art in America. In 1935, he was arrested and sent to federal prison. But what should''ve been the end was just the beginning. Although rarely credited by name in his lifetime, he influenced everyone who would follow him, particularly the publishers Robert Harrison, John Willie, Irving Klaw, and Leonard Burtman. The aim of this book was to evoke the spirit of Guyette -- to collect surviving fragments of a decimated catalog largely by referencing vintage fetish publications from the 1930s through the 1980s and reconstruct a lost history. This portfolio of images is followed by biographical information seen nowhere else, and serves as a substantial introduction to the birth of American fetish art and the cultural impact of an unrecognized pioneer. ** 2018 Expanded Second Edition ** contains 25 additional pages, 30+ newly discovered, uniquely beautiful Guyette images. Many not seen in over 70 years. ====> Make this collection yours today! Reviews: "If New York collector, writer and fetish historian Richard Pérez Seves had not decided to assemble what he knew about Charles Guyette (along with a substantial selection of images) into this paperback, this influential forerunner of the genre''s better known exponents would have continued a lot longer as the great unsung hero of American fetish art." -- Tony Mitchell, thefetishistas.com "If you''re at all a fan of fetish art ... then this book will be right up your alley." -- kinkweekly.com "I''ve often cited John Willie''s gals as my biggest fashion inspiration but I''ll have to start tipping my hat to Guyette as well." -- Dita Von Teese ” "Peek Inside" with Dita Von Teese (copy & paste) ” instagram.com/p/BbC7Aw8BjRW ” "Peek Inside" NEW Edition (copy & paste) ” fethistory.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html From the Author: "Fetish art (although the word "fetish" was not used in those days as that term came into fashion in a non-clinical way in the 1970s) was about testing the boundaries of freedom. Some of it had to do with unconventional sexual expression ... but more of it had to do with fashion because of how identity and gender are connected to what we wear. Charles Guyette was a sexual fantasist, who earned his living as a costumer. He sold photos of his "costume studies" on the sly. He produced custom-made high-heel boots and shoes, sold corsets, opera gloves, and other eccentric accessories. He understood the transformative power of clothing, particularly "bizarre" and theatrical fashion. He is also referenced in the new film on Wonder Woman''s creator, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, as the costumer for Wonder Woman''s real life inspiration, Olive Byrne. * * * * About the author: He is also the author of the upcoming hardcover illustrated fetish art history and biography, Eric Stanton & the History of the Bizarre Underground. =============== Available now on Amazon for pre-order =============== Tags: Charles Guyette, the "G-string King," vintage fetish, fetish fashion, Yva Richard, Weimar, John Willie, Irving Klaw, Eric Stanton, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, The Secret History of Wonder Woman, My Beauty Mark, Burlesque and The Art of The Teese, high-heel shoes, boots, corsets, Dita Von Teese, Bettie Page: Queen of Curves, Bettie Page Reveals All, Voluptuous Panic, Vivian Maier, Annie Leibovitz, Jill Lepore, Horizontal Collaboration, Weimar Republic books, The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin, London Life

In 1986, when Gottfried Bohm won the Pritzker Prize, the award was only a few years old, but it was already regarded as the greatest international accolade in architecture. Bohm, the first and only German ever to receive the prize, was honored by the Pritzker committee in part for his work from the 1950s and 60s, which was almost exclusively devoted to the construction and reconstruction of churches. Bohm's Pilgrimage Church in Neviges, Germany (1964-68), for example, is a crystalline ecclesiastical building modeled in exposed concrete, and a beautiful example of Bohm's virtuosity. In Bohm's work of this era, the utopian ideas of Expressionist architects, who had dreamed of massive buildings that would generate a sense of community, found a late and surprising outlet in the bosom of the Catholic Church. In later years, Bohm put new and equally surprising accents into home construction, a good example being his work in the Chorweiler district of Cologne (1969-75), as well as public buildings such as the City Hall in Bensberg (1967), which was installed on the remains of a medieval castle. Gottfried Bohm compares and contrasts this influential architect's masterly sketches with photographs of finished buildings. Its essays outline Bohm's career and his larger oeuvre, and a detailed index of works makes it an essential reference.
