Travel + Sketching = Inspiration When we travel, we don't want to follow the same itinerary as everyone who's come before us. We want to feel like explorers, adventurers in undiscovered territory. And that's exactly what sketching can bring to the travel experience. An Illustrated Journey captures the world through the eyes of 40 talented artists, illustrators and designers. You'll experience the wonder of seeing familiar sights through a fresh lens but, more important, you'll be inspired to set pen to paper and capture your own vistas. The really wonderful thing about a sketchbook is that it can be totally private. You don't have to have an ounce of talent to enjoy learning how to really see what's in front of you. But lucky for us, the sketchbooks captured here are lovely, creative, intimate windows into each artist's mind. So, whether you're just returning to the art of drawing, abandoned by most of us after childhood, or you're looking for inspiration to take your illustration work in a new direction, An Illustrated Journey will take you on a wonderful trip of the imagination. All you need to pack are a pencil and a piece of paper.

Cosmopolitanism, Nationalism, and Individualism in Modern China explores Chinese intellectual life and cultural practices in the New Culture era of modern China by examining an influential newspaper supplement published in Beijing during 1918–1928, as well as other contemporary sources. Xu highlights a key intellectual-moral paradox in Chinese discourses between cosmopolitanism as an idealistic aspiration and nationalism as a practical imperative, both in complex relationship to individualism, and in constant negotiations between Chinese tradition and Western culture in the making of Chinese modernity. These issues remain vitally relevant today.

In 19th-century America the landscape oil sketch emerged as a finished work of art, worthy of exhibition and sale. Concentrating on such leading landscape painters as Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt, and Thomas Cole, The Painted Sketch accompanies an exhibition opening in June 1998 at the Dallas Museum of Art and traveling to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., in October and the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, Massachusetts, in February 1999. In this first major book on the subject, Eleanor Jones Harvey offers a fresh interpretation of the smaller, more immediate oil sketch as both a marketing tool for the resulting large studio painting and an artistic genre. With a wealth of color reproductions and archival photographs, she follows the artists on their adventurous travels to sketch grand landscapes. She also charts the public's interest in both the artists' dangerous journeys and the sketches.
