How to Draw Fast Cars, Monster Trucks and Fighter Jets
Christopher Hart
0823023958
October 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Hart has come up with a unique book that has less to do with art, as traditionally defined, than a kid's natural urge to draw cars, trucks, and jets. The basics of shape, dimension, and perspective are applied to Lamborghinis and Porsches, American muscle cars, monster trucks, stealth fighters, and Apache helicopters. Each subject is accompanied by a brief history, performance stats, and in some cases authentic diagrams and blueprints. This book is just plain fun, and it might inspire someone who hadn't thought of creative art to produce some very satisfying work. Recommended. Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Girl with a Pearl Earring
Tracy Chevalier
0452282152
January 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
With precisely 35 canvases to his credit, the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer represents one of the great enigmas of 17th-century art. The meager facts of his biography have been gleaned from a handful of legal documents. Yet Vermeer's extraordinary paintings of domestic life, with their subtle play of light and texture, have come to define the Dutch golden age. His portrait of the anonymous Girl with a Pearl Earring has exerted a particular fascination for centuries--and it is this magnetic painting that lies at the heart of Tracy Chevalier's second novel of the same title.

Girl with a Pearl Earring centers on Vermeer's prosperous Delft household during the 1660s. When Griet, the novel's quietly perceptive heroine, is hired as a servant, turmoil follows. First, the 16-year-old narrator becomes increasingly intimate with...

Thing Of Beauty
Stephen M. Fried

June 1994
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Trashy celebrity bios are usually diminished by the fact that we've already heard the stories about Lonnie and Burt, or Madonna and Sean, or whoever the current target is. Author Stephen Fried manages to get all the sleaze value plus a lot of surprises by choosing supermodel Gia Carangi as his topic. Although her face is widely recognized, Gia finished her modeling career in a blaze of heroin and disease just before the time when models became celebrities with name recognition. Her life is the perfect fodder for the exploitation market, but Fried goes beyond that with fluid prose and a reporter's nose for tracking down sources. His stories about her teenage years, with their mix of late nights in Philadelphia's gay clubs, manic worship, and glam-style imitation of David Bowie, as well as tales of Gia's ability to...
