Emshwiller: Infinity x Two: The Art & Life of Ed & Carol Emshwiller
Together Ed and Carol Emshwiller formed a unique creative pair, inspiring each other on good days and giving meaning to the adage “marriage and art don't mix” on bad days, and this collection brings together their imaginative work. Ed “Emsh” Emshwiller, was one of the premiere artists working in the science fiction field (winning five Hugo awards). He used his unique multifaceted vision of the future to also become an award winning avant-garde filmmaker and computer animation pioneer. His wife, Carol Emshwiller, won the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement in 2005, after more than 50 years of writing beautiful, jewel-like stories and witty novels.
Publishers Weekly: In this "heavily illustrated and meticulously researched survey, Ortiz (Arts Unknown: The Life & Art of Lee Brown Coye) hits the high points of his subject's career, commenting knowledgeably on such topics as the influence of the surreal artists Dalí and Tanguy on Emsh's work. Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick held Emsh in such high regard he sought his input for 2001: A Space Odyssey. When Emsh finally put away his brushes and devoted himself to his pet project of abstract stop-motion films, Ortiz makes the cinema terminology accessible to the lay reader."
