The Renaissance of Etching is a groundbreaking study of the origins of the etched print. Initially used as a method for decorating armor, etching was reimagined as a printmaking technique at the end of the fifteenth century in Germany and spread rapidly across Europe. Unlike engraving and woodcut, which required great skill and years of training, the comparative ease of etching allowed a wide variety of artists to exploit the expanding market for prints. The early pioneers of the medium include some of the greatest artists of the Renaissance, such as Albrecht Dürer, Parmigianino, and Pieter Bruegel the Elder, who paved the way for future printmakers like Rembrandt, Goya, and many others in their wake. Remarkably, contemporary artists still use etching in much the same way as their predecessors did five hundred years ago. Richly illustrated and including a wealth of new information, The Renaissance of Etching explores how artists in Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, and France developed the new medium of etching, and how it became one of the most versatile and enduring forms of printmaking. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Verdana}

Karl Gerstners Arbeit ist ein Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Gestaltung. Eines seiner wichtigsten Werke war "Programme entwerfen," das hier in einer Neuauflage der Originalpublikation von 1964 erscheint. In vier Essays stellt der Autor die Grundlagen seiner gestalterischen Methode dar. Die damals gezeigte Methode zum Entwerfen zeigt keine Rezepte, sondern ein Modell fA1/4r das Entwerfen im beginnenden Computerzeitalter. Dass Buch liefert aber auch heute noch anwendbare Denkmodelle, allerdings keine LAsungen, kein richtig oder falsch, nichts Absolutes - sondern Grundlegendes ist hier auf innovative, in die zukunftweisende Art erarbeitet. Gerade vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Entwicklungen im Computational Design, das uns die MAglichkeit von programmierter Gestaltung vorhAlt, gewinnt dieses Buch an Spannung und AktualitAt. Die vielen Beispiele aus Grafik und Produktdesign, Musik, Architektur und Kunst regen dazu an, das Gezeigte weiterzudenken und in die eigene Arbeit zu integrieren.
