Descriptions du produit

Yuichi Yokoyama makes comics in a unique language situated somewhere between the primal drives of William Blake and the elegant geometries of Sol Lewitt--they are works of philosophical complexity and stunning visual power, of which he has said, "I'm not trying to write stories that are set in the future, but rather to write stories which are delivered from references to any given epoch or time. If the history of the world had turned out differently from what we know today, men would live according to different sets of values and different aesthetics It would be a civilization completely alien to ours." This first U.S. book on Yokoyama's work combines two of the artist's central themes: fighting and building. One set of graphic stories, "Public Works," details massive structures being erected across a landscape. Plot is pushed aside in favor of sheer formal verve as we watch buildings, about which we know nothing, come into being. The other set of stories, "Combats," is one sequence after another of elegantly choreographed battles. Manga comics have never seen a talent that combines this level of formal ambition with such exquisitely drawn depictions of fashion, art and architecture.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Original and captivating 28 juillet 2011

This manga is a very interesting read. It consists of a compilation of short stories by yokoyama. The art is amazing, all of the pictures use static lines to create a dynamic scene. Some of the Comics are hard to get through and figure out what is going on, but there is a list of sound effects at the bottom of each page describing what is happening. In the back of the book there is an insightful interview with yokoyama, as well as his summary of the comics. This summary helps a great deal in interpreting the comics.

As amazing as it is, this book is definitely not a standard manga; it is much larger(10" x 8") and concentrates on imagery rather than a multi-volume story. This is not bad, I bought it solely because I thought it would be different from other books I have read. I was very happy with this purchase and I recommend this book, it was a very fun read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great cover, slightly underwhelming 9 juin 2008

I initially bought this title because the cover was so fascinating and beautifully illustrated. I found the style to be very conceptual, so I was greatly disappointed when the interior was black and white. It seems that its only for the American version, the Japanese version is printed in full color.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 other-worldly comics 28 août 2010
Par Ekes Gonini - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A series of extraordinary short comics which are unlike anything else out there. These are exercises in form, not content - Yokoyama is more interested in finding new ways to depict movement and action than in developing story. The effect can be breathtakingly beautiful, such as the scene in which a character slices a book in two with a sword, making the pages flutter down like leaves. You'll love it if you're interested in the extreme possibilities of comics, you'll hate it if you want to read a real story about real people.

And, contrary to what a previous reviewer said, the Japanese edition of the book was also published in black and white.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Hypnotizing~~~ 22 avril 2009
Par Caramel Milk Tea - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I love how you can convey a character's feeling with a slight curve of the lip, or add wrinkle lines in between the brows. Such is what I found in this product here. At first, I was a bit taken back because there is hardly any dialogue, just patterns, waves, OCD like behavior sketching of repetitious lines, but once I got into it, I luv it for what it is.

Actually the best piece of literature I have read this year (so far). And it's funny because there's virtually no dialogue from the characters. The landscape and the objects within speak to you. What I mean is, Yokoyama does this thing with sound effects in comics I have never seen before.

Just, wow.

Absolutely recommended if you want to dive into Yokoyama and understand his oeuvre. This is really a series/collection of several of his different comics. But then, at the end, there is an interview, followed by brief notes on each of the pieces in the text--valuable insight from the artist himself.

Everything in here will "seem" unrelated but if you know Yokoyama, you know this is not true. I read Garden a few months ago. And in the story "Dress Up 1," pretty much Garden, in its entirety, is given new meaning and sort of explained. And I like that, about an auteur. I remember reading Garden and thinking, "???? ??? ?? ??" But then now, look, a few months later and I am beginning to understand it. Everything and nothing is connected.

Essentially tho, in a nutshell, Yokoyama is about striving to communicate something new and the "carrying of information." He explains artwork as either being craft or able to carry information. "Craft" artwork is the type of work "one desires to purchase and own." Yokoyama creates work that is able to carry information, in the sense that he is creating work "that can endure the test of time and be appreciated in a broad range of contexts--a work that can be viewed several hundred years after its production by people of other civilizations, and people from any place on earth, and still be enjoyed for the new discoveries it offers (as opposed to providing the kind of enjoyment that craft offers)."

Wow [2].

Furthermore, Yokoyama is "influenced by the works of Tadashi Kawamata in art, Andrei Tarkovsky in film, Arthur Honegger and Toru Takemitsu in music, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Ernest Hemingway, Franz Kafka and Masuji Ibues in literature."

I am buying ALL of his books this afternoon.
