Eduardo Paolozzi

Eduardo Paolozzi

£45.00

Quantity
Artist and sculptor, Eduardo Paolozzi was a unique and prolific cultural figure. His work was instantly recognisable and chronicles the significant changes in British art from the 1950s to the post-post-modern late 1990s This imposing and stunningly illustrated hardback book provides an extensive overview of his prolific and complex work across from all periods and across all media including: sculpture, ceramics, tapestry, printmaking, collage and film An Italian Scot, Paolozzie began his studies at Edinburgh College of Art, before moving on to the Ruskin Drawing School and later the Slade. In the 1950s he became a founding member of the Independent Group, though he resisted the 'Pop' label, preferring instead to see his ground breaking interdisciplinarity as an expansion and extension of radical Surrealism Dedicating a chapter to each facet of Paolozzi's wide-ranging practice - including, in turn, his bronze, aluminium and public sculptures, as well as his early collages and his innovative screenprints - this book offers the definitive, illustrated, art-historical appraisal of an artist whose work continues to fascinate and inspire Eduardo's The Head of Invention sculpture for Terence Conran rests outside the entrance to the Design Museum

£29.95

Quantity
With a foreword from David Millar, this lively 'scrapbook' seeks to illustrate Paul Smith's favourite people, races and places in the cycling world through the romantic and beautiful images and places that inspired him From his collection of cycling jerseys and his extensive library of cycling publications and brochures of the 1950s and 1960s, to the inspiration he has found in his cycling heroes (Coppi, Anquetil, Bartali) and his collaborations with bike-makers (Mercian and Pinarello) and race organisers, this is a personal and highly visual journey that connects Smith's love of cycling with his love of design One climax to this parallel career came in 2013, when he was invited to design the legendary maglia rosa - the pink jersey worn by the leader of the Giro d'Italia, which was blessed by Pope Francis I and presented to the winner Ultimately, this is not merely a book about one man's enthusiasm for a sport, but an insight into how the people, stories and imagery that fill this passion have influenced one of the most successful personalities in the design world Signed by the author
