The Art of the Cycling Jersey celebrates the cycling jersey in all its forms. Cycling enthusiast and author Chris Sidwells explores the most important designs in cycling history, as well as the teams, riders, and races where each piece was worn. Organized chronologically, this is the story of the cycling jersey from the first simple garments that early cyclists wore in the 1900s, to the technology-laden jerseys top riders and Tour de France winners wear today. Cycling jerseys represent many different things. For a cyclist they must be functional. For team sponsors they must stand out and increase brand awareness. For cycling fans they help pick out their favorite riders and identify a race or competition leader. Jerseys show who is a world or a national champion, and in some races, jerseys represent a competitor’s nationality. But cycling jerseys have evolved into something bigger. They can evoke good times or bad times, success or failure. Above all, jerseys mark the great occasions of cycling and speak of its history, personalities, and style. With more than 200 color photographs and insightful commentary, The Art of the Cycling Jersey is a great gift and must-have book for any style-conscious, road-racing enthusiast.

Water and light have seduced artists through the years and the quality of these elements at the New Jersey Shore continues to attract artists to this day. Between the late 1800s and 1940, an inspired group of painters were drawn to the New Jersey coastline, forming communities of artists.Jersey Shore Impressionists breaks new ground in the history of American art by recognizing the distinct influence of New Jersey and its Shore on impressionist era American painters. This book establishes – for the first time – a category of impressionist American painters who focused on, or were profoundly influenced by, the landscapes and seascapes of this Shore — from Sandy Hook and Highlands to the Barnegat Bay region to Cape May.“Not since 1964, nearly 50 years ago, and only once before that in 1938 has there been published a book on painters in New Jersey,” says the book's author, Roy Pedersen. “Never until now has there appeared a survey of the regional impressionist painters of New Jersey. This book and the accompanying exhibition for the first time celebrate these unrecognized works into the history of New Jersey and American art.” Jersey Shore Impressionists is produced in conjunction with a 2013 exhibition at the Morven Museum & Garden in Princeton, NJ. The exhibition, titled “Coastal Impressions: Painters of the Jersey Shore, 1880-1940” seeks to examine how the New Jersey shore was home to artist colonies whose output rivaled that of the better-known colonies of Old Lyme and Cos Cob, Connecticut, and Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In a Foreword, Richard J. Boyle, former director of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, describes the foundation of art colonies, and how they traveled from origins in mid-nineteenth century France to the plein-air attraction of the Jersey Shore's “special light.” The first art colony – at Manasquan – forms around 1880 as young artists fresh from European training in Germany, France and Italy begin to arrive, and the book includes work from these artists – Will Hicok Low, Theodore Robinson, Albert Grantley Reinhart, Charles Freeman and Caroline Coventry Haynes. The next generation – Edward Boulton, Ida Wells Stroud, Julius Golz – trained in America, join and form new colonies to paint the unique light as well as the activities of the Shore. The passionate work created by these artists stands as an important, but unsung, chapter of American Impressionism and is celebrated in this book, establishing the important contribution to American art in general, and New Jersey's cultural heritage in particular.
In the 1870s, railroads transformed Montclair from a rural retreat to a haven for influential businessmen and artists. They came for the orderly government, excellent schools, flourishing churches, able physicians, and attractive families.
