Warren BernardCartoons For Victory (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 34.99
A fantastic collection of World War II-era comic material – including lots of rare work by some of the biggest comic names of the time! Comic art really came into its own as America was entering WWII – the newspaper medium had hit an all-time high, with some of the best art of the century – and the new comic book format was exploding, and would find a huge audience in GIs stationed overseas. Those intertwined fates made for some amazing moments on paper – as comics rallied the forces back home, through well-spirited stories, and characters designed to provide a strong example of America's full potential – a huge propaganda push that not only included obvious folks, like Superman and Captain America – but also Nancy, Little Orphan Annie, and Donald Duck – all of whom had something to say about the war. Yet this book doesn't just stop with comic stories – as it pulls together comic material from advertisements, posters, and other propaganda fronts – with rare work from folks like Milton Caniff, Will Esiner, Al Capp, and other key talents of the time. The book is beautiful – sometimes in two-tone color, sometimes full color – wonderfully laid out, and with lots of supporting text. The hardcover volume is nice and big – almost bigger than the usual art book – and is 254 pages. Book
(Spine has a remainder mark.)

Luca BeatriceNothing Is Real – When The Beatles Met The East/Quando I Beatles Incontrarono L'Oriente ... Book
Silvana Editoriale (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $25.99 35.00
A very cool book on the influence of Eastern spirituality on pop culture at the end of the 60s – one that not only looks at the way The Beatles discovered Indian music and religion, but also the way that moment exploded in so many other directions too! The presentation is great – full color pages that feature a lavish array of album covers, posters, and other artwork – alongside essays that are printed in both English and Italian, with titles that include "From Abbey Road To Himalaya", "Orient", "For A Few Sitars More", and "Journey Between The Milky Way & The Silk Road" – which will give you some idea of the way in which the book explores the influence of the East on the psychedelic and spiritual underground of the late 60s.

Jacques BoyreauSuperTrash – Hermaphro Chic, Movie Fetish, 21st Century Anxiety ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2014. New Copy ... $5.99 29.99
A book that's way more compelling than you'd guess from the title and the cover – especially if you love the lower-reaches of pop culture from the 70s! The book features an essay by the author, but is primarily a random combination of images from a huge host of lesser-known material from the late 60s through the early 80s – b-movie posters, comic book covers, weird advertisements, strange drawings, and more – all laid out with little in the way of explanation, at a page-by-page juxtaposition that makes the whole thing even more startling overall! There's so much unusual stuff here – Cliff Robertson movies we hardly remember at all, beautiful horror magazine covers, and lots more – plus some shots of this material laid out in a Super Trash gallery show. 222 pages, softcover, and full color.

Tim J AndersonMaking Easy Listening – Material Culture & Postwar American Recording ... Book
University Of Minnesota Press, 2006. New Copy ... $4.99 25.00
A very deep look at the rise of easy listening in the postwar years – the transformation of instrumental styles to a particular kind of mood music that had a huge rise in sales during the 50s and 60s! Author Tim Anderson looks at a wide number of factors here – including workings of the musicians unions and record industry, as well as the larger discourse on sound aesthetics in the hi-fi generation – all with ties to the larger political and social climate of the time. The book's written from an academic perspective, and is clearly the amount of a great deal of research – and comes with copious amounts of notes that also point the way towards lots of future reading. 236 pages, softcover, with some black and white images.
