    Color samples of Max ja Moritz (1968). The design is inspired by a darkly humorous German tale from 1865.

    LeftMax ja Moritz, 1968

    For her new designs, Maija carried out test prints in original colors first and then in black and white. In this way, she obtained the desired screens and saw how colors with strong contrasts affected the patterns. According to the many color swatches, Maija experimented repeatedly before she found the ideal color combination. A great number of color tests were performed in the 1960s and 1970s. Sometimes up to fifty tests were done for one pattern. At that time color charts like Pantone did not exist, so Maija created her own color charts. She mixed the desired hue in gouache before painting. Then she showed it to Marimekkos paint workshop. Maija had an amazing eye for color.

    Maija Isolaart, fabric, marimekko

    Maija Isola (19272001) was the textile designer hired by Marimekko. Her most famous print, Unikko, has become the most recognizable icon of the Marimekko Company.Her early work was inspired by nature, and her f i r s t pr in t s were crea ted through a photographic process where-by actual plants were projected onto a screen. As she matured, her designs became bolder and less detailed, con-taining large areas of color.Her travels also played a role in her designs; she spent time in Yugoslavia, Italy and Algeria, incorporating stylistic elements from these varied cultures. These experiences gave her a vast pal-ette from which to draw, and this range is clearly evident in her far-ranging designs.Most of the contents of this book are her textile works but also her lifestyle is featured. This is a valuable title for all sort of designers, textile lovers, those w h o a r e i n t e r e s t e d i n N o r t h e r n European designs, and by all means for Marimekko fans all over the world.

    MANGAThe Pre-History of Japanese Comics

    The influence of manga on international comics had grown considerably over the past two decades. The origins of manga can be traced back to the Edo Period (1603 - 1868) of Japanese history, specifically to popular type of books using ukiyo-e, Japanese woodblock prints. These books con-tained humorous content and featured humans, fantastical creatures and even references to celebrities of the period. As literacy rose in Japan throughout the 18th Century (part of the Edo Period) and in to the 19 th and ear ly 20 th Century (the Meiji Period), these kind of illustrated novels became popular and it is from here that we actually get the first recorded use of the term manga to describe a words-and-pictures based story.This book includes original works of manga dated from 17th to early 20th Century. It is a great source book for graphic designers as well as comic book artists, and also Japanese art lov-ers who can find some great works of well-known ukiyo-e ar tists such as K u n i y o s h i U t a g a w a , H o k u s a i Katsushika, and Yoshitoshi Tsukioka. The book will present works in chrono-logical order. * This book contains a small amount of artistic nudity.
