  " Those of us in educational theatre know that Brockett's History of the Theatre is the most complete of all the theatre history texts. Frank Hildy's work with Oscar Brockett to keep that book up to date continues to make it the "go to book" for students of theatre history. A Century of Innovation goes further and delves deeper into how all the changes in society in the late 19th century influence the changes that we see in modern and then contemporary theatre. It is a very valuable reference. Both Brockett and Findlay have passed on, but their contribution to historical research is great."

Zen Guitar Paperback – 1st Fireside Edition 1998 by Philip Toshio Sudo

Unleash the song of your soul with Zen Guitar, a contemplative handbook that draws on ancient Eastern wisdom and applies it to music and performance.

Each of us carries a song inside us, the song that makes us human. Zen Guitar provides the key to unlocking this song—a series of life lessons presented through the metaphor of music.

Philip Sudo offers his own experiences with music to enable us to rediscover the harmony in each of our lives and open ourselves to Zen awareness uniquely suited to the Western Mind. Through fifty-eight lessons that provide focus and a guide, the reader is led through to Zen awareness. This harmony is further illuminated through quotes from sources ranging from Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix to Miles Davis. From those who have never strummed a guitar to the more experienced, Zen Guitar shows how the path of music offers fulfillment in all aspects of life—a winning idea and an instant classic.

Very good condition although the type of black cover shows soft markings. Slightly bumped corners. A select few pages have some bent corners. 201 pages. 7.5" by 5.5".

Complete Portrait Collection of Academy Award Winners, Best Actor Award and Best Actress Award Suitable for Framing. 1962 Artist Nicholas Volpe

Rare 1962 original complete collection of 67 beautifully detailed portraits of each of the male and female movie star Academy Awards Oscar winner from 1928 - 1961 by the famous Hollywood artist, Nicholas Volpe. Nicholas Volpe won a lifetime commission from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to create his Oscar portraits. He recorded through portraiture the stars who had received the Academy Award since they were conceived in 1927. Whenever an actor or actress altered their identity in characterization, Volpe decided to draw a double portrait - as the players really looked and as they appeared in characterization. This was purchased from a long ago closed movie theater in Northern MN.

This portfolio of portraits is housed in a white cardboard case with black lettering and black, white and gold illustrations. Nicholas Volpe is the artist behind a comparatively recent and affordable movie collectible that I've handled over and over in recent years. A 1962 copyright date and original $3 price tag are printed right on the outer folder which announces "for the first time ... A Complete Portrait Collection of Academy Award Winners - Best Actor Award and Best Actress Award, Suitable for Framing." Indeed they are. Collection: The Beverly Hills Brown Derby, California. The sleeve itself shows some moderate wear. See photos.

Each 8" x 10 1/2" charcoal portrait is signed in the plate by the artist and dated 1962. These portraits are ready and suitable for framing. All portraits are in mint condition, no folds, tears or stains.
