Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
In Putting Modernism Together, the author argues human culture can best be understood as a growth-pattern or ramifying of artistic, intellectual, and political action. Going beyond merely explaining how the artists in these genres achieved their peculiar effects, he presents challenging new analyses of telling craft details which help students and scholars come to know more fully this bold age of aesthetic extremism.

"When he draws me, I feel like a princess!" - Diana P. Themyscera

"HIS COVERS ARE SO GOOD, IT'S CRIMINAL!" - Selina Kyle

With praises from Wonder Woman, Catwoman and almost Theodore Roosevelt, how can this book be bad?

This 208-page hardcover is filled with beautiful illustrations, each reprinted full page on low gloss paper. Nice. Additionally, there are also pencil sketches and layout that look and feel as good. And every cover comes with insightful commentary from Adam Hughes, so you can find out which is his favourite cover or who's his disliked superhero. Besides the paintings, there are also pictures of figurines and other merchandise created for these characters. Cool.

The main characters for this art book are Wonder Woman and Catwoman, occasionally other superheroes from DC (and only DC) as well. The paintings are gorgeous and glorious. The colours, stylized rendering, glow, and the looks on the faces are all so alluring.

My favourite, among other favourites, is the mugshot of Catwoman, with tears mixed with eye shadow streaming down her cheeks. I like the fact that each cover reveals a bit of the personality and story subtly.

Cover Run is a wonderful collection of quality covers.

Highly recommended to fans, collectors and artists.

Adam Hughes is a better artist than you. Adam Hughes is a better artist than me. Adam Hughes is depressingly, embarrassingly good, and he's making everyone else look bad.

Adam Hughes must be stopped.

So don't any of you buy this book! If you buy this book, Adam Hughes might know how good he is. He might keep drawing, and he might even, (through some dastardly witchcraft,) become EVEN BETTER. And then I might have to kill myself. So don't any of you buy this book!

Since none of you will be buying this book, because I told you not to... I'll let you know what you're missing.

The first 25 pages showcase some of Hughes' earlier work, from the late `80s to early `90s. The largest section of the book, at about 75 pages, is dedicated to his Wonder Woman covers. Then there're about 50 pages of Catwoman covers, followed by 50-ish pages of miscellany (some Superman/fam, Rose & Thorn, Gen13, JLA, Teen Titans, Power Girl, and Batwoman). This is interspersed with a few double-page spotlights on his merchandise-design work (busts, statues, and posters/t-shirts). All sections include sketches, preliminary thumbnails, and commentary, so you get an idea of how the artist works.

This is not a complete sampling of Hughes' work: as the title indicates, only the stuff he's done for DC is represented here. So unfortunately, that means no Tomb Raider, no Red Sonja, no Star Wars, no Marvel characters. The book can't really be faulted for this: it delivers exactly what's promised on the cover. But here's hoping Hughes' will get the chance to publish more collections.

I mean..! Curse you, Adam Hughes!

DON'T ANYONE BUY THIS AWESOME, AWESOME BOOK!

Today isn't that hard to make beautiful illustrations. With the help of the correct software almost any artist can deliver realistic portraits and landscapes.

So although all works delivered by Adam Hughes are astonishingly beautiful in form, that's not what's impressive in them.

AH imagines scenes that turn fantasy characters in real figures, real persons. The relaxation seen in Power Girl's face when she's flying on her back, it's the same as anyone leisurely swimming. The pain and shame of Selina Kyle being mugshoted in the police precinct is the same as any master criminal would feel being caught. The mix of boredom and despair on Superman face while Lois Lane interviews Wonder Woman is fabulous! The terrifying madness of thorn is palpable. The "I am a goner" look of the pilot seeing WW flying toward him!

Each of AH works is a masterpiece with hidden meanings, secret stories and infinite drama, joy, pleasure or pain...and frequently with loads of humor.

Adam Hughes may be slow to deliver, but he knows his weakness. We, his public, know his strengths.

Keep up with the good job Dr. Frankenstein (yes, this is for you AH)...like him, you also created life from characters that don't exist.

This is a recopilation of several covers made by Adam Hughes at DC Comics.
The book mainly include covers of his works in DC in the series: Justice League of America (80s), Wonder Woman and Catwoman (my favorite covers from the book).
It's a great coffe table book with a few words from Adam and mostly covers (like you may expected).

Every time I went to actually buy this book on Amazon, they were sold out. It appears to be sold out just about everywhere now. I've always been a fan of Adam Hughes, but I wasn't too thrilled with the idea of just a DC art book. I would have loved to see something covering a range of his other works. But after picking this book up, I see why-he's really done a lot of crap for DC! I had no idea. About 90% of the book is Catwoman and Wonder Woman covers. I'm not a fan of either character that much, but I couldn't love this book more. Being an artist myself, it is really inspirational. Most of the pages are full page paintings with a brief description and sketches of how the piece came together. If you're a fan of comic art, it doesn't get any better than this. I just hope he releases an art book including his work for other companies.
