Thames & Hudson, 2010 - Artists' preparatory studies - 351 pages
1 Review
In this publication designers and illustrators open up their private sketchbooks to offer a privileged glimpse into their creative process. The result is a visual tour de force. Samples range from small, discrete typographical explorations to fully fledged illustration ideas, from a few scrappy scribbles and eccentric handwriting to photographic collages and other wacky forms of visual inspiration. Informative texts provide commentary on the artists' creative development, their design philosophies, sketchbooking techniques, and visual influences.

This book is a material inspiration. I found it on the shelf in Uban Spaces and after 20 enthrawled minutes of my journey into the inspired minds that make up this book, I realised I was supposed to be Christmas shopping... so this is at the Top of my January Purchase list.
I was so frustrated that I didn't have my sketchbook with me and a place to hide away with the book. I'm not sure if other arty types are the same but if you give me a bit of inspiration I go into overdrive. I have experiece in Graphic design but it's not my full time occupation.
For any graphic designer this book would be a source of inspiration and insight. To any artist, beginner or advanced this books will spark creative juices you may not have known you had.
Enjoy. :D
