Out-of-print for more than 60 years and extremely rare, Frances Pratt and Becca Fizell's Encaustic Materials and Methods, first published in 1949, is considered one of the most important studies of encaustic materials and the artists who use them, and continues to be a valuable resource to any artist interested in this extraordinary medium. Beginning their survey of the practice of painting with wax in ancient Egypt, and as it passed to the Greeks and Romans, Pratt and Fizell go on to different practices current in 18th and 19th century Europe, including detailed discussions of materials and techniques. What is most interesting, though, is their sampling of then-contemporary practice from 18 artists working in the medium, with very detailed formulas, notes and comments from each artist. This new facsimile edition is an exact photographic replica of the text made from a copy of the book in very good condition. It also includes facsimiles of several never-before published archival biographical documents by Frances Pratt, and color reproductions of 5 of the art works originally in Encaustic Materials and Methods. Notes and commentary by Kassandra Kelly, Randal Davis and Virginia Howard.
Johns is one of the most devoted practitioners in this medium, and his bold use of
the technique, recorded in the film Painters Painting (1972), has been a source of
inspiration to younger artists. Wax and encaustic media are found in the work ...

James Fenton, one of England's most gifted poets, has in recent years been looking closely at works of art and writing incisively and inventively about them and their creators. This collection of fifteen writings discusses a wide range of painting and sculpture, from the mummy portraits of ancient Egypt to the works of Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. "Ingenious. . . . Intrigued by emerging and unstable reputations, [Fenton] introduces us to Leonardo da Vinci's half-brother's son Pierino: a precocious sculptor celebrated by Vasari but virtually forgotten since."—Publishers Weekly "Not surprisingly, Fenton displays throughout the passionate attentiveness of a scholar, the enthusiasm of an amateur, and the urbane cleverness of an English journalist."—Washington Post Book World "[Fenton] is not, like Baudelaire, a poet moonlighting as art critic; he is something else again—a poetic art historian." —Karen Wright, Observer "These essays educate, enlighten, surprise and thrill, unfailingly."—Robin Lippincott, New York Times Book Review

For many people, art is at once a form of self-expression and discovery. Perhaps that's why collage—which is based on the idea of spontaneously layering images and symbols—is a favorite medium for crafters of all kinds. This book approaches the topic by theme: 5 chapters present 20 projects that deal with expressing personal creativity, exploring and recording relationships, dreaming and wishing, finding inspiration in nature, and creating visual memoirs. The instructions tell how to create a personalized project, sharing necessary techniques while suggesting ideas for substituting personal themes and materials. The directions are a starting point to encourage the reader's own artistic journey, guiding the reader to contemplate, explore, and express thoughts and feelings through the medium of collage. An inspirational gallery concludes the book, with another 26 projects by leading artists in the field. Whether a person's passion is stamping, decoupage, painting or paper art, this book shows how various collage techniques can combine to help any crafter or artist improve their craft and enrich their soul.
