      Love and Rockets : the Covers
      by Gilbert, Jaime and Mario Hernandez.
      From issue one of Love and Rockets in 1982, brothers Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario Hernandez have created artwork that has subverted, contradicted and celebrated the history of comics while making it their own. For the first time, these iconic comic book covers from the original series (and the earliest trade paperbacks) have been restored and collected.

    • Medieval treasures from Hildesheim
      Medieval treasures from Hildesheim
      edited by Peter Barnet, Michael Brandt, and Gerhard Lutz.
      "Hildesheim, Germany, was a leading center of art between 1000 and 1250, when outstanding precious works, such as the larger-than-life size Ringelheim Crucifix, illuminated manuscripts lavishly bound in jeweled covers, and a monumental bronze baptismal font, were commissioned for its churches and cathedral. In 1985, UNESCO designated St. Mary's Cathedral and St. Michael's Church in Hildesheim a world cultural heritage site, recognizing them as monuments of medieval art with exceptionally rich treasures. Despite its significance, Hildesheim's incomparable collection of medieval church furnishings is little known outside of Germany. This book provides the first comprehensive examination in English of the city's treasures, its leading role in the art of the Middle Ages, and its churches' history of commissioning and collecting outstanding objects. Highlighting fifty precious and rare works, this book beautifully illustrates some of the great masterpieces of medieval church art."--Publisher's description.
