The Carpet and the Connoisseur: The James F. Ballard Collection of Oriental Rugs
The Carpet and the Connoisseur: The James F.
Following several years of extensive research, conservation, and photography, Saint Louis Art Museum's major 2016 exhibition highlights 50 carpets and two Persian pleasure tents assembled by one of the most important early twentieth-century American carpet collectors, James F. Ballard. The unique contents of the collection, outstanding quality of many of the rugs, and detailed technical content make this book a major contribution to the study of Islamic textiles and the field of Islamic art history as a whole. The compelling visual nature of the pieces will appeal to art historians, rug collectors, and the general public alike. The book includes an essay about James Ballard as a collector by Thomas J. Farnham. A second essay by Walter B. Denny introduces the general topic of rug varieties in the Ballard Collection, placing the collection in a larger art historical and historiographic context. The textiles featured in the exhibition are organized according to geographical origin and style, with brief introductions by Denny that provide more detailed art historical context for each group. All items have full catalogue entries, full color illustrations, and front and back details showing technical features. Ballard Collection rugs in the museum's inventory not exhibited are included...

The Best Short Stories of J. G. Ballard
The Best Short Stories of J. G.
First published in 1978, this collection of nineteen of Ballard's best short stories is as timely and informed as ever. His tales of the human psyche and its relationship to nature and technology, as viewed through a strong microscope, were eerily prescient and now provide greater perspective on our computer-dominated culture. Ballard's voice and vision have long served as a font of inspiration for today's cyber-punks, the authors and futurist who brought the information age into the mainstream.

Minnows In The Bath And Other Doggie Treats (Ballard Street Collection)
Minnows In The Bath And Other Doggie Treats
Cartoonist Jerry Van Amerongen is an intellectual cartoonist with a loopy sense of humor and a richly subtle drawing style. In Minnows in the Bath, Van Amerongen gathers together his best canine cartoons. The droll dogs of Ballard Street are often hailed as among the cartoonist's strongest characters. Dogs who wear hats, dogs that catapult from trampolines, and dogs that outthink their human counterparts highlight Van Amerongen's humorous way with hounds. Through his comedic canines, Van Amerongen wants to share his world. "Some of the messages are profound; some are just plain silly. Some are geared for big laughs; others a quiet smile," the cartoonist says. "It's what's rattling around in my brain at the time." In 1980, Jerry Van Amerongen left a successful career in corporate America to work full-time on his cartoon The Neighborhood. After a decade, he decided it was time for a change, so he began developing Ballard Street. A graduate of Ferris State College, Van Amerongen lives in Minneapolis.
