Description

A first-time collection of Grayson Perry's sketches, Sketchbooks follows the evolution of his career from art school to the present day. Grayson Perry has been using sketchbooks as a place to record and develop ideas - whether for pots, tapestries, clothes, houses or exhibitions, or for nothing at all - for over thirty years. Bringing together his favourites for the first time and showing some of the finished works that result from these initial drawings, the result is a rich, beautiful book perfect for those who want to know more about an artist's creative process.show more

About Grayson Perry

Grayson Perry's first art prize was a large papier-mache head he awarded to himself as part of a performance art project at college in 1980. Since then he has won many other awards, including the Turner Prize in 2003. He is now one of Britain's most celebrated artists and has had major solo exhibitions all over the world.show more
