    Anatomy for the Artist
    Unlock your inner artist and learn how to draw the human body in this beautifully illustrated art book by celebrated artist and teacher Sarah Simblet.

    In Anatomy for the Artist, Sarah reveals the extraordinary structure of the human
    body. Combining specially-commissioned photographs of models with historical
    and contemporary works of art and her own dynamic life drawing, she leads us inside the human body to map its skeleton, muscle groups, and body systems. Detailed line drawings superimposed over photographs reveal the links between what the body looks like and its internal construction. Six drawing classes show how to observe different parts of the body - from top to toe - and give expert guidance on how to draw them. Inspirational master classes on famous works, ranging from a Michelangelo study to a Degas painting, show how artists have depicted the human body over the centuries. Each master class includes a photograph of a model holding the same pose as in the painting, to highlight details of anatomy and show how the artist has interpreted them.

    Understanding anatomy is the key to drawing the human body successfully. As well as being the perfect reference, Anatomy for the Artist will inspire you to find a model, reach for your pencil, and start drawing.

  • Andy Goldsworthy Projects
    Andy Goldsworthy Projects
    Andy Goldsworthy: Projects presents a decade of the artist's large-scale sculptural work from around the world. Using local materials-including stone, clay, and wood-Goldsworthy's projects are inspired by and interact with the natural landscape. Each project subjects Goldsworthy's ideas about the work to the brute facts and forces of nature: sunlight, sedimentation, tides, erosion, extremes of heat and cold, and plant growth and decay. Situated throughout Europe and the United States, Goldsworthy's projects are as beautiful as they are thought provoking. Each one is accompanied by commentary by the artist, and none have been published previously. Andy Goldsworthy: Projects is a companion volume to Andy Goldsworthy: Ephemeral Works (2015).

  • Antony Gormley on Sculpture
    Antony Gormley on Sculpture
    Antony Gormley occupies an unusual position as a highly popular sculptor - known chiefly for his Angel of the North (1998), a national landmark in the UK - who is also widely regarded as one of the most intellectually challenging artists working internationally. He is grounded in archaeology and anthropology, and looks to Asian and Buddhist traditions as much as to Western sculptural history, which he believes reached a punctuation point with Rodin. This is the first book to focus on Gormley's thoughts on sculpture, positioning his career and artistic philosophy in relation to its history.

    The book is structured thematically over four chapters: the first explores Gormley's thoughts on the body, time and space in relation to major works including European Field (1993) and `Still Standing' (2011), Gormley's rehang of the classical rooms at the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg. The second chapter, `Sculptors', was first delivered as a series of five lectures for the BBC; in each, Gormley discusses a sculpture he considers to be of huge creative importance: Epstein's The Rock Drill (1913-15), Brancusi's The Endless Column (1935-38), Giacometti's La Place (1948-49), Joseph Beuys's Plight (1985) and Richard Serra's The Matter of Time (2005). In the third chapter, Gormley outlines the influence of Buddhist and Jain sculpture on his work and ideas, and the fourth showcases the artist's most recent sculptures.

  • Archipelago an Atlas of Imagined Islands
    Archipelago an Atlas of Imagined Islands
    `Think of this atlas as the beginning of a journey and a kind of island guidebook, a rough guide to far-flung places, a Baedeker of make-believe, and a new page waiting to be filled. The cycle of Crusoes continues' Huw Lewis-Jones

    Islomania is a recognized affliction. But what is it about islands that is so alluring, and why do so many people find these self-contained worlds completely irresistible? Utopia and Atlantis were islands, and islands have captured the imaginations of writers and artists for centuries. Venetian sailors were the first to make collections of them by drawing maps of those they visited in their isolari - literally the `island books'. Then in 1719 Daniel Defoe published his tale of a castaway on a desert island, Robinson Crusoe, one of the first great novels in the history of literature and an instant bestseller. Defoe's tale combined the real and the imagined and transformed them into a compelling creative landscape, establishing a whole literary genre and unleashing the power of an island for storytelling.

    To celebrate the tercentenary of Robinson Crusoe's publication, a truly international range of leading illustrators imagine they too have been washed up on their own remote island. In a specially created map they visualize what it looks like, what it's called and what can be found on its mythical shores. In a panoply of astonishingly creative and often surprising responses, we are invited to explore a curious and fabulous archipelago of islands of invention that will beguile illustrators, cartographers and dreamers alike.

  • Around Every Circle
    Around Every Circle
    Internationally recognised Graham Bennett is best known in Aotearoa New Zealand for the soaring Reasons for Voyaging outside Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna Waiwhetu, the Tribute to Firefighters using steel from the World Trade Center ruins, and major commissions at Gibbs Farm and at Connells Bay Waiheke Island. Especially prominent in Japan, he has also exhibited widely elsewhere: Korea, Hong Kong, New York, Spain and Australia. His works have featured on the cover of international sculpture publications. Bennett’s intricate sculptures speak not only to human invention, the history of voyaging, the need to find balance in our activities and the realities of science, but also the urgency of recognizing and responding to the warning signs of a growing global environmental catastrophe. Bennett’s striking sculptures sit atop an extensive and varied art practice embedded in drawing, printmaking, photography. He distils complex ideas by experimenting with scales that range from intimate to monumental, and calls on a variety of media and contemporary technologies. Three major essays by accomplished writers and five elegant image sequences give insight into the nature of his thinking and process, firmly based in Aotearoa New Zealand yet spanning the globe and half a century. Bennett adds personal insights in an absorbing behind-the-scenes account of the intertwining of art and life, ever changing, turning, moving forward.
