19 Chusid, Irwin. [Flora, Jim]. The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora. Design by Laura Lindgren. Image restoration by Barbara Economon.
Seattle, Washington: Fantagraphics Books, (2004). 
Large, square octavo; softbound (stiff, slick, full-color illus. wrappers with flaps), 178 pp. Illustrated in full color. Very Good, with former-owner signature neatly blacked out. From cover flap: James (Jim) Flora concocted dozens of diabolic and hallucinatory album cover illustrations, many for Columbia and RCA Victor jazz artists, in the 1940s and ‘50s. His designs pulsed with angular hepcats bearing funnel-tapered noses and shark fin chins, who fingered cockeyed pianos and honked lollipop-hued horns amid hyperactive peripheries splashed with droplets seemingly shot from a confetti cannon. Geometric doodads float willy-nilly like a kindergarten toy room gon antigraviational. Yet Flora's wonderous, childlike exuberance was subverted by a sinister twinge of the grotesque. He wreaked havoc with the laws of physics, conjuring up flying musicians, levitating instruments, and wobbly dimensional perspectives. He also took great liberties with human anatomy, evoking bonded bodies, mutant appendages, ghoulish skin tints, and misshapen heads. He was not averse to pigmenting Benny Goodman and Gene Krupa like bedspread patterns. This is the first comprehensive collection of album art by Jim Flora (1914-1998), featuring more than 225 images. This book contains most of his known covers, rarely seen illustrations from Columbia's Coda trade journal, and some of Flora's commercial work for magazines of the period. The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora also presents the first-ever reprinting of Flora's fabled Little Man Press illustrations (1939-1942).

20 Cline, Jeffery and William Knospe. [Kagedo Japanese Art]. Breaking Light: Arts of 20th Century Japan.
Kagedo, Inc., 2007. 
Folio, blind stamped black cloth (hardcover), 317 pp. Full-color illus. plates. From Foreword: Reimei (Breaking Light) explores the 20th century arts of Japan. We follow an idiosyncratic path and wind along byways we find interesting and beautiful. The artwork offered includes painting, ceramics, metalwork, lacquers, cloisonne enamels, bamboo art, wood carving and sculpture. All of the pieces were selected for their superior quality. All speak with a clear voice. Japan experienced great change and upheaval in the 20th century. The clouds of war and natural disasters played their part in breaking old patterrns, but the transition to modernity was well underway before 1900. By the first years of the century, cross-cultural currents eddied between Japan and the West continually and impelled great creativity in the arts. Many arists openly questioned what it meant to be both Japanese and modern, and the debate inspired a remarkable cultural flowering. Much artwork from the first decades of the century explores imagery from nature.....
