Featuring contributions from Keith Collins, Christopher Hobbs, Andrew Logan, James Mackay, Jon Savage, Howard Sooley, Neil Tennant and Toyah Willcox. It is a deluxe slipcased edition. It includes three prints. Containing poetry, drawings, pressed flowers, photographs, excerpts from scripts and notes, Derek Jarman's sketchbooks are part autobiography and part social history, bursting with the energy and creativity of this groundbreaking artist. This publication collates the best of Jarman's sketchbooks to reveal the detailed planning and emotional engagement behind each of his films in more depth than ever before. This deluxe edition is limited to 500 copies, each presented in a cloth-covered slipcase.

Review quote

Beautifully put together. . . . Gorgeously realized, the volume demonstrates that Jarman was indeed a visual artist, calligrapher, and poet. . . . Recommended. "
