Die New Yorker Fotografin und Modedesignerin Lillian Bassman (1917–2012) nimmt eine Sonderstellung in der Geschichte der Fotografie ein. Nach einer Ausbildung und Tätigkeit als Grafikdesignerin wandte sie sich in den 1940er Jahren der Fotografie zu und schuf zunächst ein großes Œuvre kommerzieller Modefotografien vor allem für Magazine wie Vogue und Harper’s Bazaar. Ab den 1970er Jahren widmete sie sich vermehrt Stillleben und abstrakten Fotografien. Bislang fehlte eine umfassende Darstellung zu Leben und Werk Lillian Bassmans. Das Buch von Julia Ryff schließt diese Lücke. Es betrachtet den künstlerisch-experimentellen Charakter ihrer Arbeiten und den Einfluss der alten Meister. Auch bestimmt es die Position ihres Werkes im Umfeld des New Yorker Künstlerkreises um Alexey Brodovitch sowie in der Fotografie- und Kunstentwicklung des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts.

Kit: Fashioning the Sporting Body

This is the first edited collection of its kind to analyse the distinct but overlapping topics of dress, costume, sport and leisure history. For researchers of bodily adornment and movement, sport and costume history are both primarily concerned with industrial practice and embodied experience. The ways in which bodies are adorned, embellished and clothed (or revealed) highlights the hybrid nature of dress history, encompassing as it does the everyday clothing solutions of the mass of people and the unusual or more ceremonial aspects of costume, as well as elite high fashion. Although this is as yet an under-researched area, there are an increasing number of fashion and clothing undergraduate and postgraduate courses that specialise in sport and leisurewear. This publication is intended to give an introductory overview of the historical and contemporary issues as it does for the growing number of sport marketing and sports studies courses concerned with dress, costume history and branding. This book was published as a special issue of Sport in History.

This exploration of fashion in American silent film offers fresh perspectives on the era preceding the studio system, and the evolution of Hollywood's distinctive brand of glamour. By the 1910s, the moving image was an integral part of everyday life and communicated fascinating, but as yet un-investigated, ideas and ideals about fashionable dress.

A Cultural History of the Nurse's Uniform

This first and only in-depth analysis of the attire worn by the largest workforce in the health care system explores the role of the nurse's uniform in creating nursing identity for over a hundred years. The introduction of the nurse's uniform in the late nineteenth century was part of a strategy to legitimize North America's first nursing schools. At first varied and experimental in design, by the early 20th century the uniform was drawing on elements of fashionable, scientific, military and ecclesiastical wear, and had standardized into a blue or pink dress worn with stiffly starched white cap, bib, and apron. This remarkable outfit lasted until the 1970s, when educational and societal changes brought about its demise, and practical scrubs became the most common nursing apparel. Seen through the lens of age, gender, class and race, this book shows how the uniform was an active participant in the changing culture of nursing work and thought. Richly illustrated with images of actual garments and over 150 compelling period photographs, cartoons and drawings, the book explore the uniform within the contexts of hospital, community, nursing school, and residence. A Cultural History of the Nurse's Uniform will appeal to nurses, historians and scholars of dress. "Uniforms are rich in meaning, and Christina Bates does an excellent job of teasing out those meanings. Wisely, she has concentrated on the evidence of actual artifacts, as well as a wide variety of visual and written sources. This spirited and scholarly book makes a significant contribution to the study of dress and society." -Jane Farrell-Beck, Iowa State University "This is a very important book that places the nurse's uniform in the cultural context of school, residence and practice settings. The role of the uniform in nurses' identity is an aspect of nursing that has never before been fully considered. A must-read for historians of nursing. A Cultural History of the Nurse's Uniform will bring back memories for nurses who wore the uniform, and will provide insight to those nurses who came after." -Dr. Meryn Stuart, University of Ottawa

The American look

Drawing on a wonderful array of sources, from fashion magazines such as Harper's Bazaar and Vogue to department store records and surviving garments, The American Look presents a rich and multi-faceted exploration of the development of a distinct New York fashion style in the 1930s and 1940s. Tracing the growth of the sportswear fashion industry from its functional origins to its adoption as casual wear for all occasions by career women and housewives alike, author Rebecca Arnold shows how New York's emergent style in the interwar period was both dynamic and modern--much like the city itself. She argues that its essence was expressive of the American ideal of athletic, long-limbed figures and related to theories of body image, gender and class; that its designers such as Claire McCardell, Clare Potter and Tina Leser, were themselves embodiments of the modern, active woman; and that its style was connected not just to ideals of patriotism and democracy, but to notions of cleanliness and hygiene. Beautifully illustrated, The American Look offers a unique insight into fashion, modernity and ideas of Americanness in the twentieth century.

Die Eule aus Athen ist dem Esel auf der Brücke sein Feind! Warum lachen eigentlich die Hühner? Wie kommt der Schimmel ins Amt? Und was hat es mit dem Bärendienst auf sich? Die deutsche Sprache ist voller tierischer Begriffe und Redewendungen, deren tiefere Bedeutung sich meist erst auf den zweiten Blick zeigt. Sigi Kube schaut dem geschenkten Gaul mit Argusaugen ins Maul und weiß jetzt, wie der Hase läuft: Wer die Sau rauslässt und dann einen Kater hat, dem helfen keine Krokodilstränen – und das Kreidefressen ist auch für die Katz. Nicht nur für Leseratten und Bücherwürmer ein wunderbares sprachliches Pläsierchen. Mein lieber Schwan!
