Beschreibung von "Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design"
This is the first book to be published on one of the greatest American designers of the 20th Century, who was as famous for his work in film as for his corporate identity and graphic work. With more than 1,400 illustrations, many of them never published before and written by the leading design historian Pat Kirkham, this is the definitive study that design and film enthusiasts have been eagerly anticipating. Saul Bass (1920-1996) created some of the most compelling images of American postwar visual culture. Having extended the remit of graphic design to include film titles, he went on to transform the genre. His best known works include a series of unforgettable posters and title sequences for films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Otto Preminger's The Man With The Golden Arm and Anatomy of a Murder. He also created some of the most famous logos and corporate identity campaigns of the century, including those for major companies such as AT&T, Quaker Oats, United Airlines and Minolta. His wife and collaborator, Elaine, joined the Bass office in the late 1950s. Together they created an impressive series of award-winning short films, including the Oscarwinning Why Man Creates, as well as an equally impressive series of film titles, ranging from Stanley Kubricks Spartacus in the early 1960s to Martin Scorseses Cape Fear and Casino in the 1990s. Designed by Jennifer Bass, Saul Bass' daughter and written by distinguished design historian Pat Kirkham, who knew Saul Bass personally, this book is full of images from the Bass archive, providing an in-depth account of one of the leading graphic artists of the 20th century.
Pat Kirkham is Professor in the History of Design, Decorative Arts and Culture at the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design & Culture, New York. She has written and edited a number of books, including Charles and Ray Eames (1998) and Women Designers in the USA 1900-2000 (2001).
Martin Scorsese: Martin Scorsese, geboren 1942 als Sohn italienischer Einwanderer, wurde in Little Italy Zeuge von Armut, Verbrechen und Gewalt. Zunächst wollte er Priester werden, wechselte dann aber zu seiner wirklichen Leidenschaft, dem Film. Später sagte er einmal über sich:"Ich bin unter ihnen aufgewachsen, unter Gangstern und Priestern. Und jetzt, als Künstler, bin ich gewissermaßen beides: Gangster und Priester."
