Irises: Vincent van Gogh in the Garden
Jennifer Helvey
Irises: Vincent van Gogh in the Garden

Vincent van Gogh painted Irises in the last year of his life, in the garden of the asylum at Saint-Rémy, where he was recuperating from an attack of mental illness. Its energy and theme—the regenerative powers of the earth—express the artist's deeply held belief in the divinity of art and nature. This groundbreaking book fills a gap in Van Gogh scholarship with an in-depth study of Irises placed in the context of his glorious flower and garden paintings. Full-color reproductions include not only Irises, but also a panoply of nature paintings by the artists who inspired him.

Images in the Margins
Margot McIlwain Nishimura

An astonishing mix of mundane, playful, absurd, and monstrous beings are found in the borders of European manuscripts from the Middle Ages. Unpredictable, topical, often irreverent, like the New Yorker cartoons of today, marginalia—images drawn in the margins of manuscripts—were a source of satire, serious social observation, and amusement for medieval readers. Through enlarged, full-color details and a lively narrative, this volume brings these intimately scaled, fascinating images to a wider audience.

Images in the Margins is the third volume in the popular Medieval Imagination series of small, affordable books focusing on a particular theme, providing accessible and delightful introductions to the medieval world.
