Item description for Romantik by Robert Klanten...

Romantik presents classical romantic elements through outstanding examples of contemporary illustration, photography and graphic design. While making a clear reference to nineteenth century Romanticism, the book defines a current version of the term through its selections and presentation.

The book features examples expanding the forms of visual expression available in our computer-dominated world and develops style elements existing beyond the canon of forms used in the 1990s. In place of uncluttered surfaces and clean lines, colorful collages and ornaments are used to generate a feeling of warmth, closeness or commitment.

Since the computer is a creative tool, today's "Romantik" is pragmatic rather than dogmatic. At the same time, the book challenges the role of the computer in the design process, appealing to the romantic in all of us.

Reviews - What do customers think about Romantik?

Good stuff  Feb 14, 2007
Awesome book. Good for inspiration. You will see the artwork like mixing between vector base and photoshop, photocopied art work, wonderful vector based images, mix-media; collage using drawing style and photoshop etc. If you find something different from things you've seen, you should buy this book!
Absolutely Beautiful!  Sep 24, 2004
Although the book was a little expensive, it contained very inspiring, "romantic" art. I especially enjoyed the collages and photo art. They are so artistic and different from anything else I've seen! (I suppose this review will be a little biased, seeing as this book is published in Germany and I'm obsessed with anything German ;).)

I highly recommend this book to artists, especially graphic designers, because all the art in this book have been completed on the computer.

The only thing I think this book can be improved on is if the artists are actually introduced in a better way, and every one of them can write something about their art. I understand this is a mostly art display book though. This is a book that you will treasure always and will want to look over and over again.
