Product Details

Encompassing seven volumes, this limited edition slipcased set presents the sketchbooks of renowned London-based Brian Clarke, a self-described -artist married to architecture in every way.- (He has collaborated on stained glass, mosaic and tapestry projects with such high-profile architects as Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, ArataIsozaki and Future Systems, among many others.) Within six of these volumes, Clarke explores a specific theme--the fleur-de-lis, landscapes and seascapes, figurative studies, heraldry, splashes and skulls--as it has evolved into finished projects. The seventh volume is an index for the others, and explores the large-scale artworks that result from Clarke's thematic meanderings. Including oil paintings, stained glass and works in lead and mosaic, the index is, in Clarke's words, the -parts of the sum,- while the sketchbooks include works in various media, from drawing to collage, watercolor and photography.
