Trench Art

by Jane A. Kimball, Trench Art Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Trench Art books, "Trench art" is a highly evocative term conjuring up the image of a mud-spattered soldier in a soggy trench hammering out a souvenir for a loved one at home while dodging bullets and artillery shells. This is an appealing but very false conception of the reality of this art form. A few types of trench art could be made easily in a trench during lulls in the fighting, but the hammering involved in making many trench art pieces would have been greeted with unwelcome hostile fire from the enemy. Trench art items made during wars were in fact created at a distance from the front line trenches either by soldiers "at rest" behind the front lines, by skilled artisans among the civilian population, by prisoners of war, or by soldiers.

Trench Art

by Nicholas J. Saunders, Trench Art Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Trench Art books, Frontline soldiers in World War I were years ahead of the current fascination with "found object" art. Confined to trenches and dugouts for long periods between battles, soldiers and others involved in the war produced a dazzling array of items made from the waste of industrialized war. These items included engraved shell-cases, bullet-crucifixes, letter openers, cigarette lighters and pens made from shrapnel, and numerous national, regimental and religous images. These objects resonate with the at once terrifying and surreal world of the trenches and obviously had an influence on post-war art and literature. Nicholas Saunders is the foremost expert on "trench" art and this heavily illustrated book is, surprisingly, the first work devoted to the subject.

Trench Art

by Judy Waugh, Trench Art Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Trench Art books, This unique collection of trench art evokes emotion. Each piece was created in turmoil but all are beautiful - intuitive works of art about music, faith, love and honour. 56 pieces are from WWI. All are signed with name and service number. Most are small and tactile, often worn as a fob. Many are made from coins and brass from the battlefield; some are carved in bone and wood. Most belonged to young soldiers who were killed in action or died of their wounds - at Gallipoli, France and Flanders, Palestine and Mesopotamia. Twelve belonged to Anzacs. This book tells their stories - of men from England, Scotland, Wales, Australia and New Zealand, bound by adventure and loyalty to their common ancestry. . . . . . The engraved ID holds the key to the story. The heart of each story is different. There are stories of courage under fire and desertions at Colombo; of death from sunstroke and survival through three theatres of war; of medals awarded and fines for misadventures; of men from the Outback in Queensland and young lads from Boys Homes in Kent. There are insights into social history - the ostracism and disgrace of venereal disease, the generational poverty in industrial cities, the imperative to secure oil lines in Iraq. And there are heartbroken letters from those left behind. . . . . . This book will appeal to collectors of artefacts, coins and militaria. It will also appeal to those interested in family history, social history, military history and art therapy in trauma. So much can be found from so little. The range of artefacts may also interest researchers. There are over 64 artefacts in all, including two from the Boer War, one from Crimea, and seven from the convict era - all bearing testament to the primal need to carve a name.
