160 pp, 4to (11 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0920668445 Profusely illustrated in vivid colour and b&w. "To many, the name Heather Cooper conjures visions of finely detailed paintings in mythical and romantic themes. As posters and pr ints, her works have become a medium of their own in celebrating North America's performing arts. But as 'Carnaval Perpetuel' quickly comfirms, the work of Heather Cooper goes much further, with a range that takes in the design of packagin g , p o s t a g e stamps, corporate trade marks, greeting cards, annual reports, even retail displays....Her work has been featured internationally in Graphis, Idea Magazine, CA Magazine, and Heidelberger Qualitat. But 'Carnaval Perpetuel', with 1 60 p a ge s of f ul l color illustrations, tells the whole story in Heather Cooper's own words. It's a story to be enjoyed not just by those in the business of art, advertising or communications, but by anyone with a feeling for the graphic arts who wo ul d l ik e t o k now a little more about the world in which they're created." Slight waviness on rear pastedown, slight bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. Ver y Go od/ Very Go od
