    The Development of the Artists Book

    The most significant quality of a book is how it is an object containing information which can be interpreted, contemplated and forecasted by the reader into their own imagination. We can look at the earliest mediums of visual communication and pictures that represent concepts. In the Renaissance, manuscripts were adorned with ornament and images, clearly understood in correlation with the text creating its own physical operation. Mankind was in the development of understanding and articulating their own history when printing was invented, several illustrated books formats developed throughout the 20th century and Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of the movable type allowed a substantial amount of flexibility for authors, artists and publishers. Many artists during the last century figured that books were excellent vehicles for their ideas as well as a method of expansion for audiences to view. Pictures were explicitly associated with the artists oeuvres and therefore the artist would not need to rely on the textual component.

    Photography and Painting

    Artistic medium and perception prospered in the 19th century, it is the emergence of photography which influenced artists to innovate and alter the way they made art. Photographs allow an audience to observe and categorize, they aren’t just statements of the world but actual pieces of it. While painting can be a narrow and selective interpretation, a photograph can be treated as a mirror of reality. How did photography fundamentally transform painting?

    • Good topic! I don't know much about the relationship of photography and painting, but I do know that critics commonly claim that the development of photography pushed creative writers to become more experimental with their writing and to seek out new ways of representing "reality" (stream of consciousness, fragmentation, etc.). Photographs are narrow and selective, too, of course. When we take a photo, we choose all sorts things: content and context (what we include in the frame, what we cut out), distance, angle, lighting, exposure time, etc. – JamesBKelley 4 years ago

    Thankyou for this article, I’ve always been a fan of the Harry Potter films but found there was so much detail missing in comparison to the books.

    Good read, I find it hard to adjust from a well cultivated novel to a film adaption. but I will make an exception on Francis Ford Copollas The Godfather which in my opinion boasted a much more sophisticated adaption in comparison to Mario Puzzo’s novel.
