2019 Calendars

FRACTAL COSMOS The Mathematical Art of Alice Kelley 2019 Calendar
Highly Recommended. By Alice Kelley. Fractals, visual depictions of mathematical equations — the ones behind natural phenomena such as crystal growth, galaxy formation, plant shapes, and weather patterns — prove that math is indeed beautiful, especially when you use it to create art.

Collects Atomic War! #1-4,1952-53 and World War III #1-2,1952-53. Recommended. Art by Ken Rice, Lou Cameron et al. Back in the 1950s during the “Cold War” every new day hinted at the possibility of the end of the world. Kids grew up in the shadow of bomb shelters and were treated to daily lessons at school on what to do in the event of a nuclear attack.  Americans were besieged by constant reminders to police our borders, to carefully watch out for “foreigners” who might be spies, and to be ever vigilant in preparing to combat the “red” menace of communism. Lou Cameron's fine artwork is featured in almost every issue.

J.W. GODWARD 1861-1922 The Eclipse of Classicism
New Revised Edition. Highly Recommended. By Vern G. Swanson. Art by J.W. Godward. John William Godward (1861-1922) was among the brightest stars of the late Graeco-Roman painters during classicism's twilight years. Some believe he equalled Alma-Tadema in his depiction of marble and flowers and Frederic Leighton in his depiction of drapery. I like to compare him to Maxfield Parrish, since he also discovered the appeal of nude or appealing young women, and that became a favorite subject, just as Parrish did the same a generation later.
