Prebles Artforms Book Description :
We form art. Art forms us. The title of this book has a dual meaning. As humans form works of art, we are in turn formed by what we create. The art world constantly evolves, as today's artists interpret, challenge, and ultimately create the world around them. The 11th edition of Prebles' Artforms reflects this dynamic environment; it is one of the most exhaustive revisions in the book's history. Three recent trends drive this edition: changing pedagogical needs, new scholarly research, and recent creativity by artists around the world. MyArtsLab is an integral part of the Prebles' Artforms program. Engaging activities and assessment provide a teaching and learning system that helps students experience and interact with art. Key learning tools include...

Total Loss Farm A Year in the Life Book Description :
In making her selection for Pharos Editions, Dana Spiotta tells us how drawn she was by the work of Raymond Mungo. “[He] writes . . . about his own joy and his own pain, he is particularly good when he describes the land around him and how it feels on his body.” Indeed, if Henry David Thoreau had downed a handful of liberty caps before penning Walden it would have read much like Mungo’s Total Loss Farm, a rollicking memoir of the late 1960’s back-to-the-earth movement. Written in a limber prose style formed by the tempo of the times, Mungo takes us into the cultural tsunami of a failed radical politics as it broke on the shoals of a drug-fueled personal freedom and washed inland across the farmlands of Vermont, leaving a trail of damage and r...
