Author: Tattoo Duke
Publisher: Wolfgang Productions
Here's a book that's inspired by the Mexican culture and history. Artist Tattoo Duke has gathered his collection of drawings, from fully rendered color images, to collages and unique hand sketches, and compiled them into this amazing reference source. Not only does this book feature artwork that could be described as "Gangsta" or "Street," but it also features Aztec warriors, Raza-style artwork, Graffiti Art, even American Indian themes. The key, as with all art, is the shading. When the shading is done correctly it changes the entire impact of the artwork, whether it's rendered in full color or simply sketched in black & grey. This book features everything from beautifully, fully-shaded intricate collages, to simple sketches showing the design process. Tattoo Duke's artwork is a must for any artist/client that celebrates Mexican culture through tattoo designs.

The Colorful World of Tattoo Models is an intimate and, yes, colorful look at the some of the world’s best tattoo models. Representing the US, the UK and various European countries, each model wears tattoos that range from the traditional to the avant-garde. Over 25 models fill this book, each with her own chapter. The book uses extensive interviews with each of the models to flesh out who they really are. Questions include the type of modeling they prefer, how they become a model, when they first become intrigued by tattoos, and the stories behind some of their favorite tattoos. But as good as the interviews are, it’s the photos that carry this book. In each case the lighting is superb, the poses unusual and unusually intriguing. Sexy, sometimes subtle and often erotic, these photos are exceptional. Each chapter provides up to 30 images of each model. Photos taken outside under natural light, and photos created inside with carefully positioned studio lights. The photographers, and there are a number of talented men and women who’ve contributed to this book, have captured the models at their most alluring, and in some cases, most open and vulnerable. Presented in a large, 10X10 format and printed on heavy, high quality paper, this book is one that you can pick up and open to any page. Each presents the world’s most beautiful models in a format that invites examination. Page through it quickly the first time, then come back again and again to read and wonder at the words and images that spill off the page.

Alessandra Cecchi is not quite fifteen when her father, a prosperous cloth merchant, brings a young painter back from northern Europe to decorate the chapel walls in the family’s Florentine palazzo. A child of the Renaissance, with a precocious mind and a talent for drawing, Alessandra is intoxicated by the painter’s abilities. But their burgeoning relationship is interrupted when Alessandra’s parents arrange her marriage to a wealthy, much older man. Meanwhile, Florence is changing, increasingly subject to the growing suppression imposed by the fundamentalist monk Savonarola, who is seizing religious and political control. Alessandra and her native city are caught between the Medici state, with its love of luxury, learning, and dazzling art, and the hellfire preaching and increasing violence of Savonarola’s reactionary followers. Played out against this turbulent backdrop, Alessandra’s married life is a misery, except for the surprising freedom it allows her to pursue her powerful attraction to the young painter and his art. The Birth of Venus is a tour de force, the first historical novel from one of Britain’s most innovative writers of literary suspense. It brings alive the history of Florence at its most dramatic period, telling a compulsively absorbing story of love, art, religion, and power through the passionate voice of Alessandra, a heroine with the same vibrancy of spirit as her beloved city.
