Art of the Sketchbook, the: Artists and the Creative Diary
(999 items available)
For every commercial work released by an artist, countless doodles and sketches remain in sketchbooks, unseen by all but a select few. The Art of the Sketchbook cracks opens the covers of more than thirty private sketchbooks and reveals the personal work of artists in their leisure. Travel diaries, life studies, and wildly imaginative cartoons are just a few of the styles represented here, and the materials and subjects are just as varied.Double-page presentations show the sketchbooks in their raw form, and artist interviews provide both context for the images and glimpses into the role sketching plays in each artist’s larger body of work.
