This special edition of Lucy Williams stunning monograph includes a signed and numbered screen-print mural by Lucy Williams. Williams's art provides a pleasing contradiction in which her subject matter - stark and brutal mid-twentieth-century Modernist architecture - is presented through mixed media bas-reliefs in which the detail, the personal and the intricate is ever-present. In this beautifully crafted book these artworks are showcased alongside a number of period photographs of the buildings, many of which no longer exist, which served as the inspiration for the artist. The subject matter is diverse; Williams depicts apartment blocks, swimming pools, and shop fronts that stand modestly unpopulated but deeply human. The artist's precise and intense process, involving such everyday materials as wool, gravel and cotton, bring forth works of art that are totally removed from the mundane and ordinary; they ask us to stop and marvel at their detail and beauty.
