Dust Jacket Design: Paul Buckley

It's not easy to identify a Paul Buckley cover. His style runs the gamut resulting in covers designed (or directed) to boldly stand out, or tastefully fit in.

The Illustrative Works of Sam Vanallemeersch

The Photorealism of Alyssa Monks

Photorealism began as reaction to modern and abstract art which by the late 60s had finally broken into the mainstream. It's one of those underrated movements that to this day is still written about as some sort of novelty. I couldn't disagree more.

The Digital Children of Loretta Lux

When I first came across the photography of Loretta Lux in an issue of Aperture, I was impressed. At the time I knew nothing about Photoshop let alone digital photography, and I mistakenly assumed a few clicks of the mouse was all it took to achieve [...]
